    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.

    • Overall

    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.
