The Bonaventure's staff is very pleasant, and I am very satisfied. I am planning on moving there. I like the facility and the people who are working there. I should be happy there. The apartments are clean and a good size. I have nothing negative to say about them.
I enjoyed my communication with the director of Spring Oaks. I got a good sampling of the services they provide. It was very comprehensive when I was shown around the facility. They offer respite care. The rooms seemed comfortable. We have to provide the furniture, except for in respite care. It was as I expected it would be; nothing fancy, but then again we're working on a budget, and it seemed very nice.
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.
Apple Blossom is a very pretty, huge place. They have a beauty shop inside. It's the nicest one I have ever been in before. My aunt's room is small. It felt like you were in an airplane. It's nice but small. They have a lot of activities for the senior citizens to be a part of and the dining area is nice. Personally, I prefer something larger, but it wasn't too bad. It had a small living area, a small bedroom, and a very small bathroom.
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.
Point Defiance Village had wonderful grounds that bordered a beautiful park, which was nice. They didn't have any nursing services, so it's more like senior housing rather than assisted, although you can hire somebody to help. It's not in the middle of the city. Transportation was available.
My mom was at Sunset Lake Village for three weeks. She refused housekeeping and do her own housekeeping. She didn’t let them change her bed. I did the laundry. I think in the three weeks that my mom was there, she got one shower. It was posted on the back on her door that she would get assistance with the shower on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I think on one Wednesday, she got a shower, and then I don’t know what happened. She never got another one, so that wasn’t good. I did have a little bit of a problem there. She was in assisted living but basically she did her own thing other than one shower and her medications once a day.
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.
We really liked Village Place. They don’t have one main dining room. They have what they call neighborhoods of small sections with maybe 12 total. We liked that concept. They had a nice little living area with a sofa and television, you can make puzzles, and there’s books. Next to that would be the dining area. It's now just waitlisting. They don't have availability.
We moved my mom to Royal Palm two weeks ago. I’m like five minutes away from her. I know she had an incident two days ago. She was down having breakfast and one of the workers came over and said we’re going to strip her bed. Of course, my mother, being the way she is, got all upset and burst into tears. They were looking for bed bugs. It wasn’t a pleasant experience for my mother to go through because she had to go up to her room and find her bed all stripped and linens just thrown in the corner. I know Mom is fine because her mattress is not even a month old. All her linens are brand new, and her mattress and everything are brand new. I’ve known the executive director for a long time. I met with her to get my mom in, and she seems very dedicated and caring. She really does. So I have to say I’m pleased with that. Whereas at other facilities, I’ve never met the executive directors.
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.
The Fairmont was definitely warm and welcoming. The gentleman there had a name on a welcoming sign for us, gave us a tour, answered all our questions, and was outstanding. In fact, it was so good that my sister-in-law, who is 60, said now she knows what's out there for her, so it was a very good experience. Had my mother been able, we would have definitely considered. Everything was a 10, no question.
Azalea Park is a relatively new place, and I love the apartment, although my mom does not like Lakeland. Their food is good. Their dining area is very nice and feels accommodating. Everybody's very nice, from the residents to the management. I'm impressed with the whole place.
I liked The Oaks of Auburn. The staff was very helpful and keeps in contact with me. The room they showed me was very nice and would have accommodated what furniture I would take with me. The dining room was very nice. The whole place made me feel comfortable and I know I would like living there because I already knew people there. They had bingo, a beautiful pool table, recreation area, and went on trips. It's a place I would enjoy being close to good friends and where I used to work.
The Fairmont was nice and clean. The directors were very helpful and nice. The apartments were nice and clean. They had a salon, a library, a computer room, and a little cafeteria. They had a bunch of activities on a daily basis, like interactions and current events. One thing that kind of turned me off was there was a smell of urine on the terrace.
Maple Downs appeared to be very pleasant. I didn’t meet with any of the residents as they were at a meal but the people there seemed to be comfortable and happy. The food and the ambience were good. I got a tour of the various strength of the place, and they seemed to be very good and satisfactory. Transportation is covered, too.
The managers that run The Fairmont were very friendly and involved. It was very clean, and I got to see a couple of the rooms. Everything was good. It was old but very nice. There were lots of activities and plans for the residents, who looked friendly.
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.
Sterling Court was very expensive and very beautiful. It would be my first choice, but I could not afford it. I was impressed with the actual presentation of the building. It seemed to have a friendly atmosphere. The rooms, people, and food were nice. The only one drawback that I had was that they had only one elevator, and it was a huge place. When you go to breakfast, lunch, and dinner there, the one thing I heard among the residents was it was very difficult to go up and down because there was only one elevator there. Other than that, I did not have any objections. I would still probably have chosen it if I could afford it, but I couldn’t. However, I had an excellent visit. I was very impressed with the personnel and the people I saw with smiles on their faces. They had everything anyone could ever want.
Rock Spring was amazing, clean, and wel -kept. It looked like they had activities going on. My daughter and I both went along with mom, and we were impressed. It was very nice and I have nothing bad to say about it at all; everything was nice. We ate lunch there and the food was good. If I do see any other places, they'll have to measure up to Rock Spring or be better. The staff all seemed very friendly and nice, and I don't have any complaints. There's no pool, but I saw a library and a beauty salon.
