North Star – Reviews
I can’t say enough about the staff at North Star they are exceptional.Recently my sister Jeannie Edinger was having an issue with a delivery and Drew went way out of her to get the issue resolved.
North Star is very clean and the Staff are very friendly. The residents seem very happy and the rooms are spacious and newly renovated.
Staff was helpful and Dawn, DON answered all questions we had.Very nice and clean facility.
I used to work at a competing retirement home and North Star was known as the best of the best. The location is right on Riverstone but just enough out of the way that its not too much Hussle and bustle. The staff are long term, and you can tell how much they love their job and the people they work for. The community is spotless, and they really pride themselves on taking care of their residents for as long as possible. i sat with some residents earlier and I have heard NOTHING but praise for the staff and how they run NorthStar. The activities are always a blast, and the food is delicious. No wonder why they have a waitlist! Incredible!
North Star is by far the most well-managed, clean, best maintained facility we looked at for my 84 year old father. We started looking at facilities in WA state and Idaho two years ago and then got stuck during COVID. We moved him to North Star at the end of March 2021 and the staff have been wonderful on a daily basis from the beginning - through not one but two move transitions (from independent living to assisted living). My dads memory is failing and the staff on the independent side worked very closely with me to assess and assist him daily so we could then figure out the best care plan and move to support him. I cant say enough about all the wonderful staff! Melanie, Rachel, Melissa, Megan, Kayla, Anita, Noah, Brandon, Scott, Richard, Chef Pat - Im sure Im forgetting someone! Thank you for being so kind, patient, gentle, and going above and beyond to make my dad (and his dog Autumn) feel so welcome and comfortable here at North Star.
Staff are amazing, especially during COVID19 times. They stepped up and kept us very safe. We are so blessed and thankful to have Tambra as our director here at North Star! The food is so great!!! Location is to perfection overlooking Riverstone.
Stay away from this place. The honeymoon is over the day after you move in
North Star Retirement and Assisted Living Community is absolutely amazing! The food is great, staff are so kind and helpful, and the building is always clean and updated. I would highly recommend moving a loved one into North Star!
North Star is beautifully located just above Riverstone Village in Coeur dAlene. I love when you enter the building it feels like home and the residents are always smiling and happy. The restaurant has a menu of different options to choose from and the servers are very attentive to residents needs. The apartments are spacious, light and bright. Staff are welcoming and caring to all residents and each other. I highly recommend touring North Star for your self.
North Star feels like home! Staff are so welcoming, residents are friendly and kind, and the community is very clean! North Star is an amazing place for your mom, dad, friend, and loved ones to retire!!
I love this community and miss it so much! The residents are so amazing and the staff always has smiling faces!
North Star is wonderful at making you feel welcome and part of the family. Staff is eager to help. My mom was not happy about leaving her long time family home, but Melanie, Megan, Kayla and Alex have all been patient and kind in helping her transition. All who have visited Mom have been impressed with the food, dining room, grounds, facilities and activities. Mom appreciates Skylars attentive service in the dining room and how he knows her name. Maintenance personal were helpful when Mom was moving in and have made sure to introduce themselves. Housekeeping has been understanding, kind and flexible. One night Mom realized she had left her purse in the car and didnt feel comfortable going out in the dark to retrieve it. I was able to make a call and Alex offered to get it for her. That is an example of what gives us peace of mind that Mom is in a great community that cares and is eager to solve problems when we cant be there.
Great place, wonderful residents.
I live in senior apartments next door. I visit each month, cos my brother performs there. Great staff, wonderful activity director. Easy to see from Seltice rd. Free, handicapped parking. Wheelchair accessible
I LOVE North Star! ♥ The food, the staff, the administration, everyone is so warm and friendly. I work for a company that causes me to visit my clients at North Star, its just like coming home. I believe anyone who visits or lives at North Star Retirement Community feels the relaxed, safe and clean environment. Good job all who make this place a total success.
North Star is a beautiful community. The staff are amazing and do what it takes keeping the residents happy and engaged. North Star is the premier retirement community in Coeur Dalene. Location and views are phenomenal!
I love North Star! The residents have their own hair salon, spacious apartments, and excellent food with a great dining experience. Every time I visit, the staff is very welcoming and kind. I have attended the annual carnival and several other events that North Star has held, and they're always a blast!
Fabulous facility, great food and warm, caring staff!
The staff members and employees are the best. Readily available to answer any questions you might have and help get whatever you need within a timely manner. The chefs prepare delish meals. The cream brûlée french toast is wonderful. The rooms,lobby, dining room and ground are impeccable.. My father is in the best care he could possibly have. Thank you North Star. Diane Costa
As an employee, I have the privilege of experiencing several different aspects of North Star. Nothing and no one is perfect, but I give North Star five stars easily because the happiness and well being of every resident takes precedent above all else.
I have worked in the Coeur d' Alene senior care community for seven years and I've been inside every assisted living facility in Kootenai County. As a resort town Coeur d' Alene has become a retirement mecca for many seniors across the western United States. There are many wonderful facilities for seniors to choose from, including NorthStar Retirement Community. NorthStar is unique among assisted living facilities in that the minute you walk in you don't feel like you're in a "typical" retirement facility. Why? Because the residents are active, lively, and engaged with life, not sitting in front of a flat screen TV.And the food they serve their residents is among the best available, and in fact as good if not better than many local restaurants. The facility operates like a restaurant. You can order off the menu anytime of day unlike institutional cooking in other facilities where meals are only available at set times. The Staff of NorthStar are tenured, experienced, compassionate professionals who take pride in the care they provide their residents (who are treated more like family). If you are considering an assisted or independent living facility in Kootenai County, Idaho then I would encourage you to visit NorthStar before you make a decision.
Northstar sets the standard for senior living in our community. The staff make a concerted effort everyday to ensure the residents at Northstar are enjoying life and receiving the highest quality of care when needed. Truly a special place!
Perfect home for my mom. She's been here for some time and still loves it. The staff really cares about the residents and goes above and beyond to get to know each of them. If you're looking for a place for a parent, that is active and allows for independence while providing a safe environment -- you should definitely call and take a tour.
The residents are awesome!! Just not my cup of tea to work their. Staff to resident ratio isnt good they cant keep staff which is why I left. Management says one thing but if you saw behind the scenes their bar is not what they say. I guess for the most part if you want your relatives in an assisted living then this place is better than most.
I cannot say enough good things about North Star. From the very beginning, our contact with North Star has been wonderful. The staff are professional, thoughtful and extremely helpful. From Fantastic Melanie being there to assist us through every problem, including a lamp broken during the move, to Skylar in the dining room, taking the trouble to get to know my mother the first day, we have encountered only welcoming kindness, caring, and warmth from every single person. The residents are great, too! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
What a wonderful place for my mom to live! The facility is beautiful and clean and the staff is exceptional. They are so friendly, helpful and care so much for the residents. There are many activities geared for "all ages". And the food is delicious! So happy we chose this place for Mom!
I love visiting North Star. Front desk staff and management are always so warm and welcoming. Building is beautiful, but its the people that really make the difference. Both residents and employees just seem happy to be there.
My mom loves this place. She is more active, social, and happy now that she lives here. Good food, great people, this really is my moms new home!
I am an aide that has several customers there and have worked there almost three years.. I have been very impressed with the overall feeling in the building...the openess and the residents seem happy and friendly. The dining room is large and well staffed with waiter and waitresses interacting with the residents. The kitchen offers very good food and there are lots of choices. I also see residents taking their food to their room if they desire. In fact it seems the it is all about serving and treating these individuals well and with respect.
My mother-in-law and I scheduled an appointment to tour North Star with Melanie. It was a very pleasant experience. She was so gracious and hospitable. We felt so welcome, and were treated with kindness. Melanie gave us a thorough tour of the facility and took her time with us. She supplied us with so much information and encourage us to ask questions. She was very understanding and I was impresses with her patience, and how well she interacts with the residents. We had lunch with Melanie. The food and service in the restaurant was great! I was impressed with the scheduled events, as well as the freedom to live an independent lifestyle. It is like having an apartment attached to a mansion. Every resident I crossed paths with seemed to be very happy and friendly. I hope that my mother-in-law decides to become part of of the North Star family. I would enjoy coming to spend time with her there. It has a great atmosphere and is clean with professional staff. Thanks Melanie for a great experience.
Amazing facility with Amazing staff!!!!
Auburn Crest Hospice recently partnered with North Star to create and market a fundraiser for the Inland Northwest Alzheimers Association. Collaborating with Becky from North Star was a fantastic experience. She is fun to work with and is a great example of how the community takes care of their residents in part by creating a fun and safe atmosphere!
A friendly community that has wonderful food and staff. I would love for my mom to move here so she could be close to us.
Very clean and great staff and service
