I visited Capital Place. It was good until they started talking about the money. The rooms were OK, but you have to pay an upfront fee before they let you move in. They did not have an full kitchen, or stove, but the meals were included. They served us lunch on small plates. They have a library, and the amenities were OK, but I wasn't impressed.

They served three meals a day in Capital Place, but they had set times for meals, so people congregate in the dining room at one time. I got the impression that people had to wait for the next meal which was kind of sad. Everyone there was kind of friendly, but it didn't feel like an upbeat place. They didn’t seem to have a lot going on.

The staff at Capital Place was very nice. They have everything. They have a regular dining room and there's an exercise room. The facility was very clean. I saw empty and furnished apartments and they were nice. It would be a good place to live.

Capital Place is very nice and very clean. You could see the people were very happy and busy. There are lots of thing going on like playing cards and games. It is very social. That part was lovely too. The dining room is lovely. The rooms are very nice. We met the director that took us on a tour; he was very nice. We like him very much. We really liked Capital Place, but we did not like the location. It just didn't have the feeling that we got at the other community. We weren't there very long, however, there were a lot of things that didn't suit what we were looking for. It was not an open, airy kind of community.

I would love to live in Capital Place, but I couldn't afford it. The food was excellent. The people were very friendly. We could have a house for ourselves, but if it snows or rains, they didn't have any covered places if we have to go get our lunch or dinner in there. However, if we're in the main building, it was very nice.

We visited Capital Place. The person who was working with us was very friendly and very thorough. It was under construction though. The rooms that she showed us were clean and nice. They showed us one that was occupied and furnished and one that was not occupied and empty. We talked to a few residents and asked them if they like it, and they said yes.

Capital Place gets mixed reviews for me: As an independent living facility, it is an excellent option. There are plenty of activities that encourage socialization, the apartments have a nice sized kitchen, and it is in a great location. As an assisted living facility, I would give this facility an average rating. As long as the senior only requires minimal assistance with ADLs or medication management it is good. As health declines, there is much room for improvement. As a memory care facility there is much room for improvement, particularly the staff to patient ratio.
