Rosewood Estates did not have assisted living. The rooms were very nice. Everyone was friendly. I think they had a library, a small fitness center, and a van that takes you to doctors and shopping that's nice. The food was delicious. The dining area was bright, open, pretty, and had a lot of windows.
The Chateau was probably our second choice. The place was fresh and bright; however, it was a little bit farther from us, and farther from the doctors and hospitals we use. They were friendly and accommodating.
Arlington Plaza was really nice and I liked it, but it was very expensive. We had to park two blocks away because their parking wasn't high enough for our truck and that was the only drawback. The people and porch were very nice. I thought their grounds were very pretty and well kept up. We saw a nice and clean two-bedroom apartment.
Our visit to Madison Estates was informative. I was pleased with what was given to us. The apartments that we saw were clean, nice, and bright. Everything was pretty well taken care of. The only social activity we saw was a luncheon gathering. I was surprised that the average age was in the 80s, but they did not look that old. I liked what I saw, but I did not see everything.
Fox Run Estates' staff seems fine. It's clean, but the bedrooms are small. The only cooking facility they have is a microwave, not a full kitchen. The staff is fine. The only thing we didn't like was that the laundry facility is down the hall and not in your apartment. I don't want to use somebody else's washer and dryer.
My mother was in Englewood Estates. It was a very nice place. I have eaten there, and the food was great. They have all types of activities for seniors and were very nice people. My mother's room was nice. It was a very large studio, the smallest room they had, and had a small kitchenette with nothing to cook with because they don't want people cooking there since they provide the meals, so it was just a fridge and a sink. It had ample closet space, a huge bathroom, and the main part was carpeted. I just thought it was a really nice set-up. The food was great and the dining area was nicely set up. They had a set menu of three different things for each meal, and there are waiters and waitresses you tell what you wanted off the menu.
My husband is happy in a very nice one-bedroom apartment at Englewood Estates. The dining area is excellent. The staff is lovely and very helpful and allowed my husband to keep his two dogs. The people are very nice. The place is well run, in a desirable location, and meets all of our needs. It's a great place overall.
This is a great place to live. It is a little older and dated than some of the other places but it is the staff that makes a place great. This place has a great and caring staff.
We all lived through bad and good times. And this place was great and very good for the first two years, then a very poor senior management team took over to start a couple of bad years. Now more than ever since the previous senior live-in managers have moved on it is back to a much nicer place to live. The old team were not very friendly (in fact hostile at times towards staff, residents, and family members). They seemed to browbeat all the staff, and appeared to divert money from quality of the food, activities, etc. I do not know where the money was going but it was no longer being spent on the facility, improvements, staff, quality food, or for the good of the residents. This man and woman ran off some of the best staff two activity director, two other husband and wife management teams, two marketing managers, and a lot of other good help. I think the staff and residents are all singing the Wizard of Oz tune that starts “ding, dong the …” just added words to include the male also … And the sad part is that the Holiday Retirement company management did not seem to care about or respond to any of the complaints that were made by staff, residents or family members
The new senior management team is much nicer and seems to be more competent. The staff is now much more interactive and seem to once again to enjoy their jobs. The food seems to be improving and the activities once again more diverse
Very pretty facility. Residents seem very happy, and a little spoiled, as they should be. I have not been is the private apartments, nor have I eaten the food. The build appears clean. I have not experienced the quality of care. The residents are clean and well groomed. However, personal care is not offered by the facility so residents in need of personal care must hire/private pay for that assistance. The dining is presented very formal and classy. It is very appealing and I would like to eat at a restaurant like that. I have visited with the enthusiastic admissions/marketing coordinator, activities person and some of the managers. They seem to have their residents best interest a heart, tho sometimes they are hard to find or not interested, or too busy to talk? The activities person seems a little stressed, but really tries to find things that are interesting to the residents and tries to please them. The managers are hard to pry away from their desk and do not greet guest as they come through the door. I have never walked in and felt as if they were really glad to see me, and I have walked around looking for someone to talk to.
Renaissance Austin is a charming facility. The facility is very nice with big windows that constantly let in plenty of natural light. I find the design of the building to be quite nice with a layout that flows well. The atmosphere here is very open and airy and the light that shines through the many windows of this facility give it a very happy feel. Renaissance Austin is a nice facility when it comes to its interior.
The exterior of the facility is also very nice too. The facility is well landscaped on the outside and there’s plenty of seating areas for residents. There are also nice shaded parts of the building due to the many trees. I found the atmosphere outside the building to be quite peaceful and tranquil. There were areas of grass. The many seating areas were something that I was quite happy about.
Inside the facility is clean with a great layout. There’s lots of natural light coming through from the facility’s windows and the building had plenty of nice seating areas inside. There were plenty of areas to sit inside and plenty of recreational rooms for residents to sit and enjoy. There’s even a library and a billiard room. I also like the dining hall, despite it being a bit crowded. The tables a little bit too close to each other (or rather there’s too many tables packed into one area), but even despite this, the dining area is a very warm and cozy room.
Renaissance Austin offers plenty of food options to make sure residents have plenty of variety. Though I did not personally get a chance to taste the meals at this facility, the food visually looked very good. A downside of the Renaissance Austin is perhaps the fact it isn’t as centrally located as most facilities. It isn’t really located near any major establishments as the area is largely residential.
There is however establishments on HWY 183 which isn’t too far from the facility. Overall, Renaissance Austin is a very nice facility. There aren’t any establishments in walking distance of the facility, but there are establishments located nearby on HWY 183.
This is a multi-level senior independent living community with an elevator. There is a large dining area on the main floor right inside the entrance that serves 3 meals a day. There are numerous activities and community outings provided daily as well as regular outings to the store and transportation to doctors appointments as needed with reservation. Residents who choose this community are expected to be independent with all their daily activities or have state/private assistance available. There is an on-site beauty shop,coin operated laundry room, library, and small fitness center available. One negative that I noticed was that the staff were not very approachable and one was quite rude when I asked her some questions about one of the residents that I was seeing.
This is an Independent living facility in Grapevine that has the front office, dining room, elevators and stairs near the front entrance. There are apartments of various sizes available and most have grab bars installed as well as elevated height toilets. There is weekly housekeeping available for all residents, coin-operated washers & dryers, and meals can be eaten in the main dining room or delivered for an extra fee. The activities department is bustling and there is always something going on there, from daily exercise group to crafts, trivia, and residents are kept informed with a calendar & announcements over an intercom system. There is visiting physician, nursing, home health aide, and therapy services available if needed, however people who live here are expected to be able to manage their self care or have someone to assist as needed.
Activities, activities, activities! The facility gives it's residents no reason to be bored. When I arrived some residents were loading up in a van for a trip. I walked in to see an exercising class. There were some knitting and playing games as well. Everyone seemed to be really enjoying themselves. I saw a few residents walking dogs. Not many places allow pets, so that was a big plus for me.
The Renaissance has come a long way. There have been changes made over the past year or so and this community has definitely improved. The lighting is better and the employees' morale seems to be much better too. The Renaissance is clean and maintained. The staff is kind and helpful. They have activities, socials, and outdoor functions planned for their residents.
Cottonwood estate is a nice independent living community. This community is neat with nice landscaping. The building is clean well maintained but the building and apartments could benefit from some upgrades. The apartments are small but can fit basic furniture. The dinning room is open and nicely light. The menu is not very accommodating but the food is good. The activities are average and could improve on variation. The staff is supportive and professional. This community is a better fit for active seniors but home health agencies are available for additional support.
Arlington Plaza has lush manicured landscaping upon arrival. The parking area seems a bit crowded during the day. It's clean and inviting inside. The rooms and restrooms are suitable for the residents. The staff is friendly and helpful. The residents are vibrant and energetic. There are great attractions nearby that the residents often visit. According to the residents the food is delicious and convenient.
Fox Run Estate has a positive and slightly energetic atmosphere upon entering. The gathering areas are clean and spacious. The facility is organized throughout with comfortable furniture. The employees are very attentive. The residents safety and good health is monitored closely. The food is wonderful and accommodating. There are great attractions nearby and social and physical activities on site.
Paradise Springs, the name says it all! This facility has everything to keep residents feeling connected and living a fulfilled life. Upon entering the facility, the staff greeted me, and there were a few residents siting in the waiting area who greeted me as well. Everyone was friendly, and I saw first- hand how involved and happy the residents were.
This facility is clean throughout, has amenities on hand, and has everything needed for a complete living experience. There are volunteer opportunities, activities on and off site, social gatherings, and much more. The management here has put together a plan to insure all needs: physical, social, and psycho-social are meant. If your loved one is looking for a senior living community where they can receive all of the comforts of home, while receiving outstanding care, this is the place. The facility fits best with a senior who is active, or a senior who needs to be more active. The residents here motivate one another to participate. There is teamwork and friendship building here within the community.
The location is within proximity of restaurants, banks, and shops: However, not everything is in walking distance. Transportation options are available at an additional cost to the resident. There are many amenities at this community, and most are inclusive in the price. The meals are prepared and served hot. I especially liked the baked chicken. These are chef prepared dishes served tableside. Residents are allowed to modify the menu when necessary.
Paradise Springs is a nice, comfortable, clean, and well managed facility that is moderately priced. The facility has an upscale feel, with all of the comforts of home. Someone is available to assist the residents 24 hours a day, and residents needing help are placed on a care plan during registration so that those needs can be met. This facility truly feels like an environment where a person can live, be occupied if desired, and rest when desired. There are lots of activities to participate in if the resident chooses to. Also, the residents here encourage one another to be active. The social environment is strong here. This may not be the facility for someone who wants to sit and be idle. Furthermore, there are a variety of activities to meet a variety of needs for residents.
The Bentley has a convenient location and they offer studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. The staff is always friendly and professional, they seem to enjoy their careers. The social calendar appears to be quite full with a variety of activities to choose from. The staff are available to help the residents to get the medical services they need. I would recommend a tour, this is one of the better facilities in the area for the price.
Location, location, location! This area is tucked away very close to White Rock lake, the Arborium, shopping, and restaurants. It is in a quiet, very convenient area. One of my favorite benefits to point out about being a resident here is the managers live onsite also. So if you are living alone or your family lives out of the area, you always have someone to reach out to if you need something. It is a very clean, not very old, pleasant environment. I would suggest a tour.
Cypress Woods is clean, modern, and nicely decorated for a comfortable feeling like home. Most of the staff seems attentive and engaged. I would recommend this facility to people I know based on the caring, compassion, and general knowledge that the staff exhibited while I was on site. Overall this facility seems to be peaceful, organized, well kept, maintained and the staff seems to be knowledgeable, caring, respectful, and kind. All of these characteristics work well in providing a positive nurturing environment.
Paradise Springs has undergone management changes so the level of quality and care is not as evident as once before. Some of the staff seemed disengaged and not really connected with the residents. While visiting I really couldn't see any direct leadership, it was like everyone was just managing themselves. Overall the facility is not updated, the food is moderate, the living space is adequate, and the staff seems preoccupied with their personal tasks instead of their professional ones.
