The Worthington was a nice, clean place. The people were friendly. They had in-home doctors that would come to the residents, plus outings, haircuts, and everything right there. They had a wall of heroes for the resident veterans.

My brother loves The Worthington, and we haven't had any problems with them. It's a nice place that I would also consider for myself. They have Bible studies, church, bingo, cards, a pool table, and a library. They have snacks that they can get whenever they want. I tried the ribs and love them. My brother enjoys the food, too, and he's eating more there than he did at home. The staff is very courteous and friendly. They always give us a warm welcome whenever we come to visit.

The staff at The Worthington was wonderful. The place was beautiful on the inside. The two rooms that I looked at were decorated beautifully and the grounds were nice. I had lunch with the sales manager who was very nice, and the food was very good. They had studios and one-bedrooms, which were fairly expensive. They had bingo and exercise classes.

My mom moved into the Worthington. They have walk-out patios, and my mom loves the artwork. They allow dogs and smoking. Mom met the staff, and it was an easy match for us. My mother's room has windows and lots of light space. She has two good-sized bedrooms, wonderful amenities, and housekeeping once a week.

The Worthington looked very nice, and we liked it. During our visit, they were very friendly, but we didn't feel that it was as welcoming as the other place we saw. The dining area was clean and tidy, and they had multiple very appealing apartment options and setups. Some of their amenities included a little game room where they could play poker and bingo, a pool table, a hair salon, and more.

I loved The Worthington. In the assisted living area there's an alert system that you can put around your neck or your arm, and there are people who can come and help you if you signal them. It's a very nice facility. They have a very nice dining and entertainment area, a very nice activity area on the second floor, a game area and TV area, and an elevator.

The Worthington was very nice, but I couldn't afford it. The rooms were so small and I couldn't get all my furniture in it. The price is also higher than what I wanted to pay. The staff was very good. The place was very clean.

My mother is in The Worthington, and it's great. They feed her, they provide activities, a place to stay, a nice apartment, and housekeeping. They provide three meals, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is good. They have a movie she goes to every week, Bingo, exercise, church, and a wide range of activities. It's a lot of money, but this has more value than the places I saw anywhere in Columbus, that's why I chose this.

The Worthington is a very nice and well-maintained community. They have good people there, too. It was good. They have a pool and game rooms. They have tours. They serve three meals a day. The apartment was smaller than I would like, but if I was at the stage where I was going to spend most of my time there with just my wife and I, it would be adequate.

I visited the Worthington three times and I liked the place. The price is reasonable. I liked that it was part of Holiday, they have around 300 units around the country, and if you can make arrangements, you can stay at any of those up to seven nights free. It's designed after a cruise ship. There's a tall, open center to the building, and you can see all the way up. It's got flowers and plants on all of those levels. It is three stories, placed in an older community, and there's some nice shade trees there. I ate there once, and the meals were good. They have some garages, but not enough for everyone who want some. The fellow who assisted me was super, he bent over backward to make some things work when we talked about moving there.

My tour at Worthington was very good and it's on the top of my list right now. The rooms are the best priced of any that I've come across. They're very nice, very spacious, and the empty ones I looked at were very clean. The staff was very nice, very helpful, and invited me for lunch. The food was very good, and I enjoyed it very much. It has a nice atmosphere and the people seemed to be friendly. I didn't get to participate in any kind of activities, but they do have some stuff available.

The Worthington is a very nice and friendly community. The place is extremely clean, well taken care of, and very welcoming. There is plenty of parking for visitors. I like their room set-up and their common places. The rooms themselves are a nice size. They have nice full kitchenettes for the residents. We saw people doing activities in the activity room. Everyone that we saw seemed to be happy and content with the place. The staff that I met was very friendly, very cooperative, and was nice to talk to.

The environment at The Worthington was beautiful and convenient. It has really nice folks, but they just didn't have the room size that my mother needed. They had both 1- and 2-bedrooms, but didn't have a 2-bedroom available at that time and my mother had a lot of stuff. The staff was very nice and informative. The dining area is very clean and I liked it.

We chose The Worthington and will move in on Saturday. I liked everything that they offered for the individual. Of all the ones that I visited, they were the one that offered the most, like the sizes and variation of rooms available. They had various prices on the same kind of room depending on how far you were to the elevator. It was a well-designed home. They had activities, like games, bean bag baseball, balloon volleyball, and an outdoor walkway that measured a quarter of a mile. They had entertainment coming in. Within your rent, the three meals a day were provided. They had garages available that you shared with 20 individuals. They would work with you and treat you if you needed help. The staff bent over backwards to help me and the seniors. If you could not get out of your room to eat, they would bring your meal up to you. The food was excellent and they gave you four choices. They had a healthy choice and a chef's choice. They had plenty of drinks available, like juices, coffee, tea, cocoa, and water. Every meal had soup and dessert.

The Worthington has full-time staff and don't have people that work short shifts nor a lot of people coming and going. They clean for the clients, provide the towels and the bedding, and launder towels and bedding. Someone is always there and very cheerful. There's enough activities without being overwhelming. There's a registered nurse that comes three times a week. It's beautiful. The artwork, furniture, and floral arrangements are spectacular. It seems to be a very happy place, and you could always find a place to sit. There are two laundry rooms with two washers and two dryers. Each room had a patio and a balcony. It's a very open floor plan and a very happy environment. The food is excellent.

The Worthington is a independent living community in a nice quiet area. The community is a perfect fit for independent residents who are not extremely active. The community provides activities that are onsite as well as offsite. They have several social gatherings to promote communication and provide a ongoing outlet for residents. The Worthington offers a wellness program to assist residents with home health services as well as additional support services and resources. This community is not for residents who need frequent help with their daily needs, however the staff is aware of changes and assist with finding nursing support. The dinning experience is restaurant-style and provides tasty meals prepared by a chief. The building is clean and the apartments are average with a few upgrades. Overall this is a great independent living community.
