I chose Independence Village because everyone was so friendly, the residents as well as the staff. The apartment was very nice and had new paint. The food was very good. They had all the activities that I am interested in, so I'm very satisfied.
I went to Independence Village of Avon Lake. I thought it was beautiful and very welcoming. The facility was bright, inviting, and very nice. The people were very nice. The gentleman that showed me and my brother around was very, very informative and answered all of our questions. The apartments were large, nice, and clean, and had a lot of storage. They had a café open all of the time for residents to help themselves. The dining room was full, and the food smelled good. The people that we talked to were very happy to be living there. We met a lot of different residents. Everything was spotless. We went through the locked down unit for the Alzheimer’s patients, which had good security that I could see.
My visit at Independence Village of Avon Lake was very positive. They had large studio and one-bedroom units that looked more like apartments rather than an assisted living unit, so that was very nice. I also saw that they had several meeting rooms, a library, and several areas outside.
This community is located in a beautiful area with charming landscaping. The staff are very professional with the strong desire to help residents and families. The staff are very happy about the dinning services and love to invite families, friends and new residents to stay for any meal. The activities calendar is average and able to meet the needs of the residents. The care is good and the families and residents like the care and support services. The apartments are spacious with nice updates.
