Creekside at Shallowford was very nice. They had activities for the residents. Everything was clean and nice, and I was fairly impressed with it. I liked the facility and independence of it for assisted living retirement, but they didn't have the round-the-clock care that I needed. The rooms were nice and were fairly roomy. They had some good space to them. The dining area was very nice, had fine dining, was very attractive. They would match up residents so they sat them at the same place most of the time, and that was very nice.
Echo Ridge was very nice and clean. Everything would have been perfect, but the accommodations were small. My friend, who I was looking for, wasn’t expecting them to be that small. Other than that, they were very nice. The people were very nice. The food was good.
Windlands South has a very nice lunchroom or restaurant. They seem to keep everything nice and clean. Every time I go to see Pat, her room looks good. They come up once a week to vacuum and dust. We are very happy with what they are offering. They have so many different choices of activities, including bingo, card games, and a movie theater. They had a dance before, and Pat likes to dance.
We have found a place for my grandfather at Creekside Independent Living. They’re very friendly, kind, and very nice. Someone comes in once a week to clean. They do games, movie nights, and go out to eat every Wednesday. There aren't very many employees, but the ones they have are pretty good. The rooms are small.
My sister is in Creekside at Shallowford. She likes it, and it’s a very nice place. The staff is wonderful and helpful. The facility is like you're going to a hotel, and the food's good. It has variety, and the chef gets feedback from the customers on what they'd like to have. I think it's good quality. They have exercise, entertainment, and arts. There are lots of activities. My sister's room is very nice and big enough. It's perfect.
We are moving my mom to Creekside within a couple of weeks. She loves it. I think the thing she likes most is having her independence, but still, she has a lot of opportunity to join in card games, play bingo, and use the transportation to go around town. She feels her accommodation is more like an apartment than a hospital room. The food is really good, and it is nice that there are options. They have a small gym, pool tables, and a beauty salon. The services are great, but she does not really need a lot of help from nurses or anything. What she does get that helps a lot is a lot of interactions, so that she does not become a hermit. She really likes that they bring her out of her shell.
The Manor at Steeplechase was one of the places we visited and liked. I saw a library, a pool table, and workout area. I also saw a room, and I wished it was bigger. The staff that I met was very nice, accommodating, and answered all of our questions. Overall, it’s a very nice community.
I was very impressed with Uffelman Estates as they have a lot of good things happening. The rooms are nice, and I just like everything about it. They have entertainment, exercise classes, and supply transportation for doctors' appointments. I would recommend it. The people are very efficient, nice, and thoughtful.
I chose The Manor of Steeplechase because it had what I needed. I can take care of myself to some extent, but I can't do it completely, and I didn't want to continue to have a person come over 3 or 4 days a week. The choice was go to a retirement home or Steeplechase. I can't drive anymore. I gave up my car, so I am dependent upon the people here. I have access to transportation along with food since they provide meals and housekeeping for me, which are things that I would have difficulty doing on my own. In my studio, I have a little refrigerator, and of course a bathroom that I can adjust to suit my need for taking a shower without a leg. There's a laundry facility 30 steps away that I can use anytime I want. Plus, they provide the transportation if I need to do some shopping at the grocery store or the drug store or need to go to the doctors. The staff is great and very responsive to my and everybody's needs. In addition to regular staff, they also have a homecare staff that helps people who are a lot more dependent than I am. They may need to be moved in a wheelchair or assistance with bathing and dressing, so that's available there, too. They have a number of activities, like exercise activities, different entertainment activities, and churches who come in and do services on Sunday. I have been a Bible teacher fo 45 years, and I am conducting a Bible class here once a week. They have a number of other people who come here and entertain them a lot, and they try different things like card playing, poker, and bingo that a lot of people enjoy.
The food at Creekside at Shallowford was good. The staff and residents were nice and seemed to enjoy living there. The place smelled clean and the grounds were nice. We were there Valentine's Day while they were dancing and crowning a King and a Queen. The only negative thing I can think of is that the rooms are not furnished, but they have handlebars in the showers. The apartment was very nice and clean.
Echo Ridge was very nice with good amenities and atmosphere. The residents spoke up, too. They had a pool table and a TV lounge. It needed updating, but it was suitable, just not exciting. They had social get togethers and showed us the availability of snacks and coffee. They played cards and billiards, and went on outings to pick up groceries.
I was very impressed with Echo Ridge. The person who showed me around was very friendly and answered all of my questions. I liked the units they showed me. The whole feel of the place was really good with really nice grounds surrounding the place. The price was reasonable, too. They have in-house nurses and doctors available if the residents need extra help.
I went to Uffelman Estates. It was a nice facility. They only have one elevator shaft, but in the center, there is a staircase coming down. It was a husband and wife that run it. The two of them were managing the place. There was a big shopping center nearby within walking distance of the place. There were several restaurants and stores in the area, so they were in a predominantly commercial area. They did have activities. They had a room there that if you want to have family over, you can have a meal or you can have activities in that separate room just for you and your family.
If you are looking for apartment style senior living, Windlands south is all that and more. Upon visiting, I was impressed by the caring and compassionate staff, an amazing chef created menu, a wide variety of activities including outings and close proximity to the plethora of exciting sites and sounds of Nashville. A beautiful facility that is truly unique in all that it has to offer.
