HomeLife in the Gardens

We saw Homelife in the Gardens and did not like it at all. It was old, large, and just not very accommodating. It wasn’t an aesthetically pleasing place, and it felt old and very institutional, although it was fairly well maintained. They were having a Mardi Gras ball at that time of our visit...

I didn’t get a good feeling at HomeLife in the Gardens. The rooms and the apartments were small with small windows, so it was dark. HomeLife in the Gardens would not be some place I want to be living in. They did have some amenities, but they weren’t as nice as some of the others that I went to visit.

I liked the atmosphere, location, and layout of Homelife. I didn’t think it was overly expensive. The food seemed to be good. They had movies and bingo. I liked that they had a religious background and mass, and the staff seemed to be very friendly and concerned about the residents.

I toured here after touring the other two places uptown and this place was by far the BEST!!!! The staff and the food and the amenities can't be beat! Plus, the new Director actually came from one of the places that we toured uptown so it can't be beat. We wouldn't move anywhere else if you paid us.

I thought the location of HomeLife in the Gardens was good, but the facilities weren't as good. They were old, rundown, and not updated. The only thing I did like was the location because it was right in New Orleans. I would go somewhere nicer. The staff members were very nice, kind, and generous...
