    Facility: McDowell Village is a beautiful assisted and independent living community. I have visited this facility many times and it really seems as if each visit has gone better than the one before – I can honestly say that I have NEVER had a negative experience at McDowell Village. The community really does offer first-class living. The community is elegant and very resort-like. Every day is like being on a vacation for the residents who live here. The apartments are spacious and convenietntly designed. McDowell Village offers 1 bdrm/1 bth and 2 bdrm/2 bth apartments with a generous range of square footage. Activities: Activities galore! They have a blog that they maintain frequently which is awesome for family members wanting to check up on all of the fun their loved one is having and wanting to keep up with the happenings around the community. The activity staff here is extremely creative, always coming up with a plethora of exciting options to keep the residents active and occupied. They offer a indoor and outdoor concerts during the spring/summertime which residents and their families just love – they offer a Concert under the Stars event, where the audience can sit outside on beautiful spring nights and watch concerts on a big screen of some of their favorite singers. Musical appreciation is very prominent around McDowell Village. Music is a therapy, it brings back wonderful memories, and it raises spirits – McDowell Village recognize the power of music and they incorporate it in so many ways around the community. They also encourage fitness and offer a specialized fitness program. And Ladies… the salon here is really one of the best I have seen in a senior living community! Come and be pampered! Massages, Mani-Pedi’s, Hair Styling, Facials, among other amazing salon services. McDowell Village really does offer something for everyone. Food: The meals are restaurant-style providing the residents several choices to choose from at every meal. Meal time here is just like a restaurant experience with exceptional service. What many residents love about the food service is that the kitchen takes requests! If a resident is craving a family recipe, they can give the recipe to the chef as a special order! The dining room is beautiful but there are other dining options as well, such as in the private dining room with family, poolside tables with friends. Families can also utilize the grill for family barbecues. The options are endless and the chef is outstanding. The food service staff here at McDowell Village is one of the most accommodating I have seen in a community.
