The staff at The Gardens was wonderful, and the place was beautiful. The food was wonderful. Their dining room was open and airy. They didn’t have anything going on, but they do have a lot of activities. I would highly recommend this place.
I really did not like Creekside Terrace. The food was not as great, and for the price of the rooms, it just wasn't that great. Plus, people had animals running around there. I don't want to live with animals. The woman who took me around knew what she was talking about, but I wasn't really impressed.
Pinecrest was very nice, and I would recommend it to anyone who could afford it. The whole place was clean, modern, updated, and upscale. The manager or administrator was very nice and accommodating. It was conveniently located near grocery stores, drugstores, churches, and shopping centers.
Emerald Pond had small cottages that you could live in independently with a dining room, a library, and a movie theater. I would be able to keep on working while living there. I liked it so much because of the nearness to my family and work.
Durham Regent was a beautiful place. We wanted to get our mother in there, but what they advertise on the internet is different from the price when you go in to visit. It was a very clean and convenient living space. I liked the way it was set up. They had lots of activities for the senior citizens and a means of taking them to the doctor when they need to go. The staff was very nice. Everything was great, except they did not have the facility that we need. There was advertising that didn’t meet their price.
I was at Creekside Terrace. It was a very nice place at one time. When they changed management, it went downhill very quickly. The staff was not as good as it was before, and the food was very inferior.
I spent a night at Pinecrest. The staff member I talked to was fine and very kind. We had several conversations on the phone and through emails before I went over there. He is a great representative for that community. The room was fine, but I felt confined, and I’m not ready for that. I ate one meal, and the food was OK. My biggest issue was there were too many people in walkers and wheelchairs, and I just couldn’t live in that environment.
My mother-in-law has been in Jordan Oaks for 10 years. The staff is very professional. There are plenty of activities if they want to participate. Her room is very nice, very clean, and very simple. She likes it. There’s good food and good food service. Everything is well-rounded and offers a little bit of everything. I’ve eaten there a couple of times. We’re satisfied with it, and they’re offering a lot of services that help us out, so it’s very good.
My parents are great and happy in The Lodge at Wake Forest. The food and the dining area are great. The people, staff, and activities are wonderful. My parents are very happy and safe. They have volleyball, chair tai chi, and Zumba. Their room is clean, comfortable, and the right size for what they need. They've only been in there for three weeks.
Our stay has been very good in The Gardens at Wakefield. It has good food and nice apartments. When we moved in, everybody from management to the other clients were all very friendly and helpful. It was just a very nice, welcoming experience. They even helped us put the furniture in. The apartment is clean, a good size, and very well appointed with a washer and dryer, a full kitchen, a balcony, and a large bathroom. The location is excellent near a lot of shopping and lots of restaurants. It has good parking and nice gardens. The food is excellent with three meals a day, and the dining staff is very accommodating. There are lots of activities going on during the day and on the weekends. You can find just about anything you want to do. I recommend them.
I like The Lodge at Wake Forest for my mother. It was 10 to 15 minutes from my house, so I like the fact that it was close to me. The facility itself was very nicely set up and laid out. It felt more like a vacation lodge in the mountains rather than an assisted living home. This was my favorite out of the three I visited. The room and staff were very nice. I met with one of the ladies that was running it. She and her husband like it so much, that they moved in. It was nice because she lives there as well as helps run it.
My husband & I have been living here for three years and are very thankful to be here. In the last three years we have had three management teams. Our first experience with team #1 was just not the right kind of people to be in this kind of business. No complaints with the server/house keeping staff. Some of the chefs we have had were not so good, but we could always make a choice of what we wanted to eat. NOW the management team is absolutely wonderful! AND the food is great! As I said, my husband and I are very thankful to be living here. I would recommend Crescent Heights to anyone wanting to live in a community setting.
