St. Joseph Senior Living Apartments

Review by Danielle


St Joseph was OK, but I probably wouldn't live there. It was appropriate for the price. There was nothing going on; it was just an apartment, and we only saw one staff member who toured us around. It looked old, but it was clean, and they served meals. It was supposed to be remodeled, but it didn't appear that way...

The Wellington

Review by Visitor


The staff member at The Wellington who assisted me during my visit was very professional, and I felt very comfortable with her. I liked the whole comfortable feel of the community, and it was so clean. Everybody was so friendly. The rooms were a little smaller than what I wanted.

Chateau Brickyard

Review by Rex


My parents moved into Chateau Brickyard. It’s close by, active, and a reasonable price. They have outings. Residents can get a ride from the community for doctors' appointments. They have a chapel, a recreation room, a library, exercise room, and an outdoor patio. The person who helped us was very helpful.

Pacifica Senior Living Millcreek

Review by Alice


I was impressed with Pacifica, especially with the friendliness of the residents and cleanliness. We had a nice lunch there. The place was not open and airy; it felt cloed in. They need to have a better outside area. They had similar activities as other places...
