I Visited This Facility

The Gardens at Wakefield Plantation was wonderful, very nice, very clean, and had a very friendly atmosphere. The person during the tour was very helpful. There's a lot of information, and I thought she did a very good job to answer the general questions and then explain why their location had better offerings than other locations. We viewed two different units within the facility that were in very nice shape. I really liked the facility. From everything I read online and from speaking with personnel there, it seemed like a place that we should go and tour. I was very happy with it. They had so much to offer. When I compared what was available at the other location, this place came out at the top. I didn't sample the food, but it seemed like everyone who was in the cafeteria at the time was enjoying it. They had multiple offerings. It looked like it would be a very good facility.

I Am A Current/Past Resident

Our stay has been very good in The Gardens at Wakefield. It has good food and nice apartments. When we moved in, everybody from management to the other clients were all very friendly and helpful. It was just a very nice, welcoming experience. They even helped us put the furniture in. The apartment is clean, a good size, and very well appointed with a washer and dryer, a full kitchen, a balcony, and a large bathroom. The location is excellent near a lot of shopping and lots of restaurants. It has good parking and nice gardens. The food is excellent with three meals a day, and the dining staff is very accommodating. There are lots of activities going on during the day and on the weekends. You can find just about anything you want to do. I recommend them.
