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

Sentinel Pointe Retirement Community has the most caring group of people. Everybody knows everybody, and even the maintenance workers are fantastic. My mother-in-law feels that she's a person, not just a number. The food there is great and all the social activities that they do are just fantastic. She really likes it there. The room that we chose is a very spacious studio with wonderful windows that overlook the patio where they do concerts and barbecues for the residents. They have a library, a beauty salon, and a cafe. The dining room is open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and you can order whatever is on the menu. If you don't like what's on the menu, you can also order something different. If you come in late for breakfast, you can still get breakfast. They don't have a cutoff time for meals. The marketing people are wonderful. Jim gave us all sorts of advice and tips. One thing they did during the first week was they paired Mom with a resident to show her around. The place is so clean and it doesn't have any smell to it. It's like a hotel. They have a big band that comes in and plays for them. They also had a banjo player come in one time. They have movie nights and a bus that takes them shopping.
