    The Waterford at Columbia was wonderful and very clean. The rooms were big, and the dining room was beautiful. They had a covered patio in the back with a fence. The meal selections of the day looked very appetizing, and I really liked that they had a two-hour window for eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They also had snacks throughout the day and big fancy pitchers of water with ice. I also really liked the studio apartments. The place was elegant and had chandeliers.

    I liked the people at Waterford. The staff was very knowledgeable and the residents that I spoke to were very nice. I saw their studio and 1-bedroom apartments, they're larger but a little pricey. It's nice, clean, and also has a balcony. This community just re-opened, so everything is fresh and new. They have a pool, therapy room, and had the feeling of an apartment complex instead of a nursing home. It gives you a good feeling when you walk in. I really liked the person who gave me a tour, she was very nice. She took me into the dining room and made me meet some residents who were having lunch at that time and I got to ask them some questions. They have activities like Wine Thursday where they have wine, cookies, and crackers.

    I've decided on The Waterford at Columbia. I liked it. On Mondays, there's a bus that goes to Walmart, on Wednesday it goes to the grocery store ,and they'd take you to every little nook and cranny of the place. The residents were very friendly, and they'd say "Hello" if you see them on the hallway. The place is also just 5 minutes from my house. The dining room was beautiful, big, and had lots of windows. The apartments were small, but there's a larger apartment with a really big closet pantry, but the closet in the bedroom would be smaller because that's where it would take up some room. I liked that they have a menu that is posted up on the wall, but if you don't like what they have that day, you can order something else. They always have chicken available -- fried or baked -- mashed potatoes, a hamburger, cheeseburger, hotdogs, or peanut butter and jelly if that's what you want. I just felt comfortable there. The place had pretty colors and lots of artwork on the walls. It's just very attractively done.

    The Waterford at Columbia was very nice, really warm, and inviting. They had what looked like lots of activities, and there were a lot of people out when I toured. The rooms were not very new.
