I Visited This Facility

Genesee Gardens was nice. The staff was very helpful, very present, and communicated well with the residents. It was more like being in an assisted situation, but with a lot more freedom. They've got indoor and outdoor entrances to the apartments, which I thought was nice, so you can park outside of your room or apartment. I looked at both the studio and the one-bedroom. They had a lot of activities, services to take people places, and group trips, so there's a lot going on.

I Visited This Facility

We looked at Genesee Gardens. It's private pay, so my insurance would not cover them. However, it was nice, and they have a room that we would have liked. They provide three meals a day, which is nice. And if you need your meals delivered to your room, they would do that too. If my insurance company would cover my wife, the price for the other room would have been fine.

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

Genesee Gardens is beautiful with excellent staff. They acknowledge and greet you every time you walk in, tell you about whoever is there, and are very informative. I can’t say enough about them. The dining area is awesome. You can go there any time, any day of the week and dine with them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The food is very good. The rooms are excellent and very clean; they do an awesome job in taking care of them. Their amenities are super. I like the hair salon and the little convenient store inside for any little necessities. They have a lot of outings residents sign up to do and go somewhere every week. It’s just wonderful.

I Visited This Community

I visited Genesee Gardens for my mother. The facility was well laid out, wide, and cheerful. For our needs, what I really liked about the community was that they had full nursing services available on-site and that they had contractors on-site that the residents could turn to if they needed that level of service. Another thing that I liked about it is that their goal is once you become a member of the community, all efforts will be made to have you reside there for the remainder of your life. Their managers were on-site. It's a little more expensive but still in a price range that my mother could afford.
