I Visited This Facility
Devonshire Estates was very nice. I saw an apartment there that I liked very much, with nice closets, a bedroom, a small living area, and two large windows, which is good since I need light for sewing. The staff members were very friendly, and I saw that they're really helpful to people who needed it. I saw their food plans where you can select your dinners for the next day. They had various activities and group functions that you can register to do. They said they had grounds for gardening or flowering, for people that are interested. They also take you if needed to your doctors' appointments. I saw one gentleman having trouble walking, and they were right there immediately to assist him. The only thing I was concerned about is that in the evening there's no one there. You'd have to wear an attachment in case you needed assistance. But for that amount of people, it's strange to me there's no one in the building at night. The staff was good and answered my questions. I had an OK dinner there, nothing special. The layout was good. There was a large dining area on the first floor, and two or three rooms where they had club meetings or something like that. They had a list on the board of all the activities and times.
