Residents don't receive proper care. This place has to be terrible if the entire management team quit within a few months... Yes, the executive director, D.O.N, maintenance leader, housekeeping leader, kitchen leader, and 3 of their aids all left within less than 3 month timeframe. Aids would refuse to give proper care to residents, refusing to help with basic daily activities such as showering, taking to the bathroom, and getting to and out of bed. This facility is very nice but is run absolutely terribly. They will overcharge residents in every way possible. If a resident needs their meal brought up to their room they will get charged, they are charged for every laundry load (and its not cheap). Facility right now is being run by corporate. Send your loved ones here at your own risk.

We came here just for the Winter and stayed! My husband is an arm amputee needing assistance in many ways. I am here as an independent resident so I can be here with him. Staff has been wonderful to us. I am also allowed to do some baking here which is fun to do for everyones treats. l would encourage anyone to visit and consider our home. It is beautiful and comfortable.

Our experience at Waterford is quit expansive. We moved my parents off the farm when dad was 87 and mom was 82. They were reasonably high functioning. Mom was still driving but was just starting to get dementia and dad had diabetes and vision issues due to diabetes. The had a very nice apartment and loved the fact that they had meals provided, weekly housekeeping and a wonderful staff to administer pills and dads injections. After 1 year things became more difficult. Dad fell and broke his hip and moms dementia progressed to the point she could no longer drive. All this time the level of care increased with all their new needs being met. After 3 years at Waterford my dad passed away. Things were very difficult for him down the stretch and the increase care and attention from the staff was incredible. My mom lived another 2 years. Her dementia continued to get worse. The love and care she received was absolutely amazing. Our family had a 5 year relationship with Waterford. Starting with both parents being high functioning, ending with both requiring a tremendous amount of care. The staff feel like a part of our family and always will. It would really be impossible for me to put into words just how great of an experience we had at Waterford for the final chapter pf my parents life.

I have been a resident at Waterford for two years now and Im so pleased I chose this facility to be my home. It is a culture shock to change your life style and give up the home youve lived in the last 33 years, not to mention your stuff. But I must say the staff at Waterford have helped me adjust, make the transition, meet new friends and still stay connected to my past. Im so glad I have been here through this pandemic. I feel safe and looked after by caring people who have our best interest at heart. Besides that the food is pretty good too. I was a nurse in my past life and would definitely recommend the care you will receive here

Hands down the best place. I have never met employees who have cared so much about their job, residents and each other. Logan works very hard to put on amazing events for the residents, community and staff. We truly enjoy all the events and attend all of them.

The Waterford at Ames is an exceptional team to work with. They are VERY knowledgeable in levels of care and how they can best serve each resident. Everyone who lives there is not a number, they are people who they consider family and you get that feeling immediately when walking in the doors. Partnering with them to provide hospice care where people call home is truly a blessing to be a part of day in and day out. All the staff and leadership that are there are phenomenal individuals who are all about family centered care.

I have visited The Waterford at Ames many times and each time I have been more impressed than the time before! Not only is this community beautiful, but it is also so warm and welcoming! The residents are the first to tell you how much they love living there, and the staff are just as happy to share their joy at working there! Amber and Logan do a wonderful job creating a true feeling of family for all that walk through their doors!

I have nothing but GREAT things to say about this community! First and foremost I really dont know what I would have done with the caring and loving support of the Sales and Marketing Director- Logan, he went far and above what you would ever expect from anyone. My parents have called The Waterford at Ames home for 4 months now, and I am happy that they have such a warm loving and caring place to be. Everyone there is wonderful and they dont just work there they really do care about their residents. Its a clean, comfortable, and homey environment with great activities, as well as great meals. You really wouldnt have to worry about your loved ones here. I highly recommend it!

My Mom moved in towards the end of May. My father unexpectedly passed away in February and she fell down the stairs March 15. She was still quite ill so was in and out of the hospital and rehab. Amber, Logan and Rhondy were all very good about checking up on her and so helpful. We got her room changed to one closer to the dining room and on the first floor. She now has the items from home that she wants in her room to make it feel homey. Eden, the activity director is great about having lots of activities that Mom is involved in. Shes made some close friends and is so happy there. The meals are delicious. I dont know what we would have done without everyones help during a very stressful time. She wants to stay for good which Im thankful for. We know she is well taken care of and I dont spend my days worrying about her. Im grateful that we have a wonderful place for her to live at this point in her life.

The dedicated-caring staff at The Waterford in Ames did an excellent job of spreading good cheer to their residents and family with a lunch a few weeks ago. The quote, A picture is worth a thousand words sums it up perfectly. The smiles, the laughter and the love that was in that room was priceless. Keep up the great work!!

My family and I toured The Waterford at Ames looking for options for our mother that can no longer live alone. The marketing director was very knowledgeable and understanding of our situation and we felt like he really cared that we find a place that was the best fit for our mother. The Waterford at Ames is a very inviting and comfortable community, that definitely does not make us feel like we will be sending our mom to a nursing home. One of our favorite thing about The Waterford is that mom will be able to progressively receive additional levels of care all in the same place without us having to uproot her to a new place each time she requires more care. All of the staff and the residents really seem happy being there. Mom has really enjoyed living at The Waterford at Ames!

My mother-in-law is currently living here and everything has been going very well! The Waterford at Ames is very nice and the staff are great, while being very easy to communicate with. They’ve honored any requests that we’ve had and over all we’ve had a very good experience. We come visit my mother-in-law often and generally join her to eat dinner and the food is very good. With portion size being great! They offer outstanding activities like card games, wine nights, social events, movie nights, and more. They keep on top of everything including cleanliness and it’s always clean when we’re there. Ultimately we decided on The Waterford at Ames because it’s very convenient to where we live and how great the facility and staff are!

Wonderful facility with great staff as well as great amenities. Executive director (Amber) and director of sales & marketing (Logan) went above and beyond to make sure my parents needs & wants were meet. The Waterford at Ames is very inviting and comforting while being very clean. Housekeeping staff do a great job at making sure the building is clean at all times. They also provide daily activities that give my parents a fun atmosphere to be involved in while providing them a choice of what they want to do.

I toured last week for my Mom and Dad. Absolutely beautiful facility and large apartments. I was very impressed how good it smelt also. You don't get a "nursing home" smell when you walk in. The staff were all very welcoming and seemed to enjoy their work. They also have a large gorgeous courtyard with an infinity walking path, perfect for my "outdoors" Father! Finding a place for Mom and Dad to call home has been a lot to handle, but Waterford really helped put my worries at ease!
