My sister is currently living at The Laurels and The Haven in Stone Oak. It's been very good and homey. She receives the therapy that she needs there, and the food is good. She needs a certain level of assistance, and they're able to provide that for her, so it's a pretty good fit. The rooms and apartments are very nice and spacious. She plays bingo a couple of afternoons a week, and they have a fitness club, a walking club, different church services, a therapy room and exercise, field trips, movies, and book club. They have lots of different activities to keep the residents engaged with each other. There was a little staffing incident.
I went to HeartFields at Cary. It felt a little bit less comfortable and a little bit less open from an architectural standpoint. The rooms had a more closed-in feel to them. It felt like everybody was inside even though it was a lovely morning out from what I could see, which I wasn’t so crazy about. The dining area looked nice and comfortable. I really didn’t see anything much going on while I was there. The staff seemed very friendly with the residents and greeted me as I went through, so they seemed very nice. HeartFields at Cary just didn’t have quite as much of a homey feel in general as the other facility I saw did.
We loved Morningview at Irving Park. It was just a little out of my dad's price range. It was absolutely beautiful and smelled wonderful walking in. All the amenities, like the courtyard, was absolutely beautiful. The staff was fabulous and very informative. The rooms were very spacious and nice. They had a chef on staff. One of the things that I like about them is that they come at 10:00 or 11:00 to have breakfast. They work around your schedule.
Habersham House was a great place to visit and really well maintained. They had an activity room and a game room. It was a really good tour. Overall, I was pleased with the facility. The rooms were great, wonderful, roomy, and well maintained. You could bring your own furniture if you want to. It's really nice. If it had been a hotel, it's a 5-star facility. I would highly recommend them. It's a beautiful facility with caring staff. They're really thrilled to have visitors and new people. It's a great place.
The staff at Riviera were friendly during my visit. I met a lot of people. They had different activities, like cards games, board games, and singing nights. Their dining area was nice, and the food was good.
I visited Villa Valencia. I thought the staff was very helpful. The lady who I met with was incredibly helpful, but I’m looking for something smaller, a little more homey and residential, not so hotel-like. The median age was older than I thought it would be. I probably would recommend this place for sociable person and for someone who is still talkative and has their mental faculties, but for somebody that’s not in that group, it wouldn’t really be appropriate for them.
HeartFields at Bowie was OK, and the atmosphere was good. The staff told me about their activities and were very helpful. They had large- and medium-sized rooms that were all wonderful, clean, and comfortable. The dining area was beautiful and well designed.
HeartFields at Bowie was a clean, older place. When you walk in the front door, you're there where anyone's sitting, either asleep or whatever they're doing. You walk into that right off the bat. The bedrooms were very nice-looking and different sizes, which is good for people. There have been complaints from people that some things need to be addressed, but they haven't gotten around to that yet.
Granite Gate is absolutely beautiful. It was built as a resort which did not make it, so the assisted living people took over. It still has the feel of a really high-class resort area. It has gorgeous outdoors, but also really nice things indoors, like a gorgeous living room with a fireplace, so if company comes, you can take them there to visit. They have everything from studio to two-bedroom apartments. Because they had pricing that we could afford for my mother, we ended up getting a one-bedroom which they called a "no view." Well, the "no view" is a gorgeous, big rock outside your window, and my mother loves rocks, so it turned out to be perfect for us. They give you three meals a day and, if you want the special, you have to go at a certain time. The dining room restaurant is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with its own menu. My mom is not super regular, so that was a really nice feature. They have a library, several recreation rooms, an exercise program, and show a movie every night. Overall, it’s really perfect for us. The people are especially warm, welcoming, and delightful.
We didn't like Morningview it as much. The entrance was just OK. They had some flowers when you first walked in, the front desk right there, and a water cooler for drinks. It didn't have that homey, comfortable atmosphere. When we took the tour, I didn't see that many residents walking in the halls or outside. The eating area did not look appealing. They had different tablecloths and nothing matched. The people didn't look happy nor were they smiling. They just looked really depressed. The people weren't talking, just sitting there and eating. The rooms weren't very good either. They were very bland, the carpet didn't look very good, and the furniture that they had in there for the residents for the respite care looked like some old twin bed and an old dresser. It just looked very depressing. I didn't see that many workers walking around and assisting people. There was one resident who was going to get in the elevator as we were getting in the elevator, and she said to the lady who was giving us the tour, "I don't know where to go," and she had this paper in her hand and the lady who was giving us the tour said, "We don't have any activities for two more hours." The resident was like, "What am I supposed to do?" and then she started crying and she's like, "I don't know where to go. I don't know what I'm supposed to do now." The lady said, "Well, you just need to go to your room and wait." I was almost in tears and my kids are with me and they're like, "Mommy, we need to take that lady out to eat. She has nothing to do for two hours." When we left, we were really sad. It wasn't dirty and it didn't look like anybody was being abused, but it wasn't a place where I would put family.
Morningside was old, but they’re renovating it, and the people were great. They were very good in explaining stuff to us and very helpful in the area that we need help in, so I can’t say anything bad. We really didn’t get into the activities because they said that they couldn’t take my mom, but they went ahead and showed us around. The staff was great. They let me bring my dog in, and everybody was saying “hi” to my dog. They were very accommodating. I can’t say anything bad.
I had a tour at Fountainview. The place was clean, and the rooms were adequate. The staff was helpful and tried to answer all of my questions. Their residents looked fine and contented. Overall, it was good and busy.
I visited Leisure Pointe. Overall, they were very helpful, very polite, answered all of the questions we had, and showed us around. I was impressed with the staff member that showed us around. She was very nice and helpful.
The staff at Fountainview was very informative about what they offered. The layout of the campus was very conducive to the needs of my family member. The services that they're offering were great. The campus itself, the layout, the orientation, where the offices were as it relates to the living quarters were laid out very well. It looked like a community in a community. It would be the first place I'd recommend to anybody to take a look at because of the facility itself.
Ashley River was nice, and the people there were very friendly, but it’s kind of weird as the building on the road is not the main building you go into. The one right on the main road was for Alzheimer’s, so we parked in the wrong place; that was the only complaint. We had lunch there, and the food was good. Everybody looked happy and the people were really friendly. The rooms were great, and it looked like an older buildings but seemed like a really nice place. My father liked it. I know they had a rehab room, activities room, and board games. They didn’t have much of an outside or a yard or anything in the back.
The people in Morningside of Newport News were nice. The facility was clean and professional. I was very pleased with the reception. I think it's a semi-locked facility. They have activities and a social room to sit in.
We really liked Villa Valencia because they had a pool. We need a pool since my husband has arthritis, and he can’t exercise unless he is in warm water. We liked that it had large rooms. The woman who showed us around the second time explained to us more about the community. Overall, it was OK.
The Forum at Desert Harbor was a really nice facility. They had snacks out all of the time, and it seemed like they had games that they were participating in. It was very good and seemed a little pricey, but pricey is what you get when you pay for good stuff.
My mother-in-law was in Riviera, and it is a fantastic place. I wouldn't mind being there myself. The dining room experience is very professional. They have real tablecloths, real napkins, and real flowers. I would never have guessed that a place like the Riviera would have that high-quality presentation, and I think that everyone I saw there had a good attitude and were very caring. Catherine was very professional, and I would give her the Award of the Year for reaching out to people and being a people person. I think it's great that they have visiting pastors, and it's very well-attended. They are also very diverse. They have a Catholic service and a generic service. The presentation is really well-done, and the place is just outstanding. It had the largest step-in showers with room for the caregiver to be inside that area and assisting with showers. They have entryways that are very well-monitored and round-the-clock security. Some of the residents also have a little personal garden and pets. They had a lot of parking in the front, back, and on all sides. You can park in the neighborhood, too. What makes Riviera outstanding is the atrium, which as you walk in, you get a feeling of space. They have vaulted ceilings for the entryway. They have an excellent setting and prices. The people that served the food were in uniform, and their attention to detail and cleanliness are note-worthy. Catherine has the right approach in attracting people to that place because she is a people person and she knows how to make people calm. When you're calm, you can connect to other people.
I live in assisted living at Fountainview, and I’ve been very happy here. The grounds are beautiful. They have independent living here as well as assisted living. There are five buildings: one is assisted living and the other four are independent living. I have a comfortable one-bedroom apartment with my own furniture. I get assistance with bathing and dressing, medication management, and three meals a day. The food is pretty good. I was in another facility before this that wasn’t quite as good. They really make an effort here. We have our own dining room, but the food is prepared over on the independent living side. If we want, we can eat in their dining room, although the food is very similar. I only eat over there if I have a guest because I can’t have a guest here.
I visited Villa Valencia. I like that they have a heated swimming pool and a nice clubhouse. They also have outside villas. I was able to taste their food, and it was very good. The staff was very professional and very friendly. I enjoyed the whole experience.
