I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

The independent living of Freedom Village at Bradenton was fine, but the assisted living and memory care were not. The communication with the staff was non-existent. My mom was left to just sit, and no one would bring her to activities or try to engage her in any way. The apartments were small, and it was depressing. It was more hospital-like setting. They didn’t take the residents outside the building. The place was clean, but we were unhappy there. When I moved Mom there, I saw residents sitting in their wheelchairs just staring at a TV. It was the most expensive place in the area, and I didn’t get what I paid for.

My dad has decided on Freedom Village at Bradenton, but he has not moved in yet. They are still putting in new carpets, countertop, and kitchen cabinets. The staff member that we are in contact with has been very good. Their restaurant is highly regarded by other people that I talked to. We talked to a chef who told us that the food in the place is better than a lot of restaurants in the area. From what I saw, they do a lot outings, which is something my dad would enjoy. I am just not excited that it is a buy-in, but dad is excited about the move. He is also excited about taking the computer classes that they are offering there.

I have made an agreement to move into Freedom Village next month. The tour was good. I’m very enthused about it. I looked at about a dozen places, and this was my favorite of all them. I would recommend them.

Freedom Village at Bradenton had workshops, an art studio, a swimming pool and a library. They had two dining areas. The ambiance was very nice.

Freedom Village is very upscale which is what we were looking for. It had lots of amenities, and the dining area and café looked nice. The activities seemed wide and varied. The downside for my mother in law would be that it’s a buy-in, and she wasn’t agreeable. The menu looked interesting. The staff was very professional, took us into a private office, and gave us their full attention and took us on a tour. It’s a little more out of the way for us.

I’ve been to Freedom Village. For me, it’s a little expensive, but the people were very friendly, and they did have a lot of activities. The apartments were very nice and included a living room, a small kitchen, and a bathroom. They do allow pets because I have a small dog. The people were very friendly. I had lunch there before, and the food was very good, nutritious, and tasty. The facility was expensive for me. Most people there, I think, are in the upper income, like retired doctors and doctors’ wives.

I cut my visit short at Freedom Village; I decided that it would not be a good fit because of the size of the apartments and because it was a purchase/buy-in situation. However, it was the only one that I saw that had a life care package. I was not really thrilled about the entrance fee, but to be able to be taken care of for life, you had to give a little more. I was OK with that. I could live in a villa or in a spacious two-bedroom apartment. Each building had its own dining room. In the administrative building, they had the main dining room. They provided only one meal a day, but your room had a full kitchen. I liked the beautiful grounds and the amenities. The people were friendly. My only concern was I wanted an apartment on the first floor because I had a dog. It had independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing. You could stay in your apartment for a long time; if you ran out of money, they were going to care for you until the end of your life.
