I visited this facility
I was not very impressed with Coventry Place. Their rooms were big and they offered apartments instead of just rooms. It was very old and shabby and did not seem like a very nice place. The people were very nice. They take residents shopping and have game nights. They have a full calendar of social events. The outside appearance and landscaping weren't bad, but they need to do extensive remodeling of the residents' units and the cafeteria area.
I Visited This Facility
Coventry Place was clean, and I liked the friendliness of the staff. The rooms and their size were nice. However, they wouldn't be able to fit the needs of my mom as far as her medications go. That's the only downfall for them. Their medication person could only come in at certain times of the day. They didn't have a full medication staff. For people who need medication, that's not good, but the other parts of it were great. They had a lot of activities, like arts and crafts, movies, music, and religious services for the residents. They need to improve and be more accommodating as far as giving out the medications for the assisted living part. They showed an outside area where they could have a cookout and do different things outside.
Description of Coventry Place
Coventry Place offers a broad array of services, allowing its residents to “age in place.” Coventry Place residents do not pay for services that they do not need; most do not have to relocate to another facility to receive more extensive services when needed. All residents reside in large apartments (not motel-size rooms) while enjoying a maintenance free lifestyle, housekeeping, and an extensive dining program. Residents are able to participate in an organized activities program; local, scheduled transportation is also available. Our Coventry Place staff is available 24 hours a day to provide emergency services should they be needed. The best thing about Coventry Place is the sense of community that grows here. Our well-appointed dining room is a natural place for residents to meet over a delicious meal. Our wide-screen TV turns the Coventry Place lounge into a cinema and sports arena. Activity rooms are usually filled with residents play ing cards, reading or enjoying one of our fun-filled special event parties. Our graciously decorated lobby is a lovely place to greet visiting friends and family.
We offer an abundance of social activities on a weekly and monthly basis, to include chair exercise, musical entertainment, Bingo, a Bridge group, monthly Birthday Parties, Movies, Lunch and Fine Arts outings, and much much more. I have provided our January 2018 calendar here for you to review the current month of activities.
Having been in business 30 years, we're a stable business large enough to be be cost efficient but still small enough to feel like family. Most of our senior managers have been here over twenty years and is still owned by the original owners. Our Managing Director, Michael Cress, lives on the property as well in the same type of apartment as the rest of our residents.
In short, what sets Coventry Place apart?
- Our 728 sq. ft. apartments are significantly larger than other typical Senior Living apartments with lots of closet and storage space
- Both our Independent Living and Personal Care rates are significantly lower than our peers
- Annual rent increases of $25 or $50 (1-2%) are minuscule compared to other Senior Living facilities, we won't price you out of your home.
- Our one-time $500 Community Fee when moving in is a fraction of what competitors charge
- We're a family business and this is our only community. This is our "home" unlike the large corporations that treat their residents as a number, not a person.
