The gentleman at Lakeview Park pointed out that they have fireproof doors. I like that the rooms are designed a little bit different. They're not all square rooms. Some apartments have a balcony off the living room and some of them have a balcony off the bedroom. I like that the living room is smaller than the bedroom, which is bigger. The food is fabulous. It's what I would expect at a restaurant and pay good money to eat. The people there are very friendly. They have a name tag system, and my mom likes that.
Orchid Terrace's rooms were about 575 square feet and the living room was actually bigger than the bedroom. Once you get a dresser, my mother's cedar chest, and their bed in there, it's going to be crowded in the bedroom, but it's doable. It had two huge walk-in closets, which I like so they have room for storage and stuff they would need. The apartment I looked at had a small balcony off it and it was nice. They didn't have anything on the first floor; everything they had was on the third floor. I didn't see any fire doors, and they didn't point fire doors out. They just had people assigned to move the people from the third floor down. I liked it but was leery about that.
Garden Village's staff is excellent, helpful, very good, very nice, and spent a lot of time with us. The apartments were very clean, modern, didn't have a smell, and had very nice air quality. The food smells good and everyone seems to be enjoying their food. We saw a lot of activity that was going to go on. They seem to keep the residents busy.
I visited Orchid Terrace. Everything was nice and modern. They were doing a nice job and gave me the whole tour. I saw the rooms, what were available, and how much they cost. It was a few years older, but it was still nice. It looked like everybody was doing something there.
I visited Lakeview Park. The price and service were right. The staff was fine and bent over backwards to help me, show me everything, and explain everything. I had the whole tour. Everything was wonderful. It just did not work out for me. Everybody seemed to be fine and doing something. It was a brand-new place.
We visited The Cambridge. It and the people were very nice. We were able to see a one-bedroom, but we’re really interested in a two-bedroom, and they didn’t have any available. They didn’t have a pool, but they did have a small library and a pool table, which is something I appreciate. We had lunch there, and it was very nice. They had a garden that you can go out to, activities, exercise, and some games.
Briarcrest Estates was a little old-looking and wasn't up-to-date as much as the other places are, but everything else was good. The residents were eating at the time I was there and everything looked really nice. They had a library, an activity center, a dining area, and an exercise bicycle. The rooms were nice, and the lady that showed me around was really nice.
I move in to Garden Village. It is quite different from what I am use to, but I guess after I get settled it will be alright. The staff is very good. I am in a studio apartment. I just have one room and I have a sitting area and a bedroom area. The food some days is quite good and some days, not so good. I guess it depends on what you like. They have a lot of different things that person can do, but I just move in last week and I have not gone too many of the extras. I go down to the exercise room quite often. I go the church because they have church services here. They have just about everything that you will be interest in. They have cards and different activities and I am not too much on them.
I liked the Carlyle. We went to see several rooms, and the manager said that they wanted us to partake in a whole day’s activity, including the food. The building seemed to be warmer than the first place I went to. It’s a nice and new, three-story building and has elevators. The building was warm, and you have a good feeling about it. They had a café that was open all the time and a main dining room as well. They mainly are for independent living, and if you want assisted living, then you have to contract that outside of the area to come in and take care of you in the room. The rooms were fully carpeted and all had a balcony off of the bedroom or off the back of the main room. The best thing was the interior painting and decorations.
I moved in to Orchid Terrace and I like it and my studio room a lot. The food is very nice. We have bingo, dancing, music, card playing, and Wii bowling. The staff is really nice. This is a really nice place.
The gentleman was extremely helpful at Orchid Terrace. I ate there, and the food was very good. The staff was very sweet and answered all of my questions, but it was too far away. The price was comparable.
After a lot of searching and comparing different communities for my uncle, we never felt the love and compassion from any facility like we have with Garden Village. Not only is it one of the most beautiful facilities when you drive up, but when you walk inside you drop your jaw in awe. The service from the staff and on-site managers has been 5-star. The food incredible and the other residents made my uncle feel like family right away. And the cost was much more reasonable than most the others, and with more amenities. Amenities and services that mattered to my uncle, not just what I would like. Truly the best decision we could have made. You have to go see them to grasp all they really do and the awe of it all.
