The person who showed us around Waterford Estates Senior Living was very friendly and knowledgeable. We liked it. The rooms looked very nice. They had a number of activities, plus a pool and a Jacuzzi, water aerobics once a week, and a big pond with a walking path outside. They had a washer and dryer on each floor, which is shared with many people, and you have to use quarters to use the machines.

Waterford Estates Senior Living was a nice place. It's not new, but it's not terribly old. They have three different types of rooms: a studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom, and all three were nice. They had restaurant style food. You could get the food in your room which has a kitchenette, a refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker, but no stove. They have arts and crafts, a painting studio, a big meeting room, a library, and a TV room. I only dealt with one person and she was very nice. Her father lived there. She's very helpful and she gave me a tour. The building was nice and the ground floor had a dining room and barber shop. The second floor was for people just looking for a place to live, assisted living was on the next floor, and then the top floor was the memory facility for people with dementia.

Waterford Estates is nice and clean. The general appearance of the place is good. One of the rooms was OK, and the dining room seemed OK. The staff member who assisted me was nice; she could answer all my questions. The people seemed nice too.

Waterford Estates was a wonderful place. My father and aunt lived there before, so I was very familiar with the property. It's been improved since my relatives had been there, especially the menu and the service in the dining room. I was very impressed by the way it's kept. The apartments were very neat and clean. Everyone seemed to be very courteous and concerned about their residents. I was impressed with the safety measures that they take and the entertainment that they provide. I really love the place. The only problem that I have is the cost. Meals are provided downstairs, they have housekeeping once a week, they come around to clean the apartment, and they have a lot of socialization there.

Waterford Estates Senior Living was an excellent place. The room was a nice size, and I liked the way it was set up. When I first came to visit, the staff member showed me a room that had a view of the park. When I came back to make a deposit, she showed me two different apartments which were on the other side of the building. One had a view of the parking lot, and the other had a view of the houses. When I said I wanted the one with the view of the pond, she told me that someone else was occupying the unit. I was kind of upset about that. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They have a little store there, a pool where they do aerobics exercises, and seating areas on the patio. I saw the residents doing chair exercises when I was there.

Waterford is a great community for my loved one. She has been there now since April of 2017. Only concern sometimes are the caregivers, they need some improvement.

My Dad has lived at Waterford Estates for over 3 years; he just recently moved to the Assisted Living Floor. His transition has gone so well through the Grace of God and because of the wonderful staff who helped us out. Thank you just does not seem to be enough to say to them; they are wonderful people.

I liked that Waterford Estates Senior Living had a pool and that the people seemed very friendly. The rooms had balconies and they're all one or two bedroom apartments. It was reasonably priced and they had different care packages. The dining area looked very nice. It had a little courtyard just outside the dining area where the residents could go out or smoke outside. This place was my favorite one.

I visited Waterford Estates Senior Living and it was a very pleasant experience. They had a very nice facility and a lot of amenities. They had a swimming pool, a little restaurant-like cafeteria, and a beauty shop. The lady took me on a really nice tour. They have a bus that regularly takes people out every day. They have art activities and games. They have a store where you can actually go in and buy groceries and everything. They have a nice little outdoor park where you can go and sit or walk. It's all inclusive. You could stay there all week and you'd be fine. You could go swimming or do exercises. It was just a nice environment. The staff seemed very informative and helpful. They were there to assist with whatever I needed. The facility was well-maintained, and everything looked nice, clean, and neat.

We didn’t have an appointment at Waterford Estates Senior Living, but they set up a walk-through on what the studio and the two-bedroom looked like, and what the accommodations were. They were nice and had activities. There’s a private nurse on staff, and if you have doctors' appointments, they’ll make sure you can get to them. The pricing is comparable to all the other homes that are out there. Just from the short visit that we had, it seemed like a very nice community.

I thought the Waterford Estates was very good. My dad was in the memory care unit, so that was somewhat limited and had different activities. The room and the staff were very nice. The food was good.

Waterford Estates was very nice. There wasn’t anything wrong with it; however I was looking on behalf of someone else, who was interested because of his wife but then his wife passed on, so he’s not interested anymore. We visited a one-bedroom unit and got a chance to talk to the staff. They were very polite people and very informative, so I had no complaints at all. They showed me where the dining area was, and I saw a few senior citizens sitting around, but it wasn’t meal time. We had an 11:00 appointment, so I think they were just getting ready to start serving. From what I saw, it was very clean and set up very well.
