Independence Village of East Lansing – Reviews
Friendly knowledgable staff, answered all question
Independence Village of East Lansing has been a wonderful place for my mother over these past 5 years. Maggie Quinn is an outstanding Director who leads by example. She is very visible around the facility and always has a smile and time for a quick word for residents and visitors. She has developed a friendly, caring and helpful team. We were treated with kindness and respect and as they welcomed my mother to their community. Everything we were told about the facility including cost, programs and what we could expect, happened just like we were told, no surprises at all. This honesty and openness has been consistent throughout the years.
My mom had many happy years here until she needed assisted living. She enjoyed all the staff and enjoyed her many friends. All staff were kind and supportive. My family appreciated the steps the staff took to keep residents safe during covid. I am very grateful to everyone at Independence Village for their kindness even as we moved her out of IVEL.
My parents felt right at home at Independence Village. The staff and residents are welcoming, gracious and friendly.
My father moved into Independence Village in December of 2020. Like many people who have to make arrangements for elderly parents, I was nervous. Moving to Independence Village was the perfect place for my dad to live. I have been so impressed with the kindness and concern I have witnessed for the residents from all of the staff in every department. As an example in July the staff arranged for us to have a birthday party for my father. They served a meal and a special birthday cake for all of us to enjoy. There are lots of activities available for residents. Since my father is a bit of a loner, the staff reaches out to him to get him involved. I have even received pictures showing my 96 year old father playing a version of volley ball. Having my father at Independence Village has provide our family peace of mind knowing that the staff truly cares about him and has his welfare in mind.
My 96 year old very active Mother loves living at Independence Village. She loves all the activities that they offer because she loves being busy. The staff is very friendly and willing to help. The maintenance man is amazing. He goes above and beyond by coming in on his day off if he is needed. I highly recommend Independence Village if you are looking for a safe, reliable home for your loved one.
Highly recommend Independence Village of East Lansing. The staff is caring, supportive and adaptable. They work tirelessly to engage residents, offer activities, socialization and decent meals.
Mom has been living here for almost 2 years now. Maggie and the staff at IVEL do a great job of keeping residents active and engaged, and have shown great care and initiative with their covid precautions and vaccination program. Everyone who works here has been friendly and patient with me and my mother, and is always ready to help. Food is good too!
Marvelous, safe place for its residents.
Great place to work and even better place to live.
I have had elderly relatives and friends spend their retirement years at a number of places in the East Lansing area. Suffice to say, none of them have been as good as Independence Village in East Lansing, MI. Under the excellent leadership of Maggie Quinn, they have been a leader in how they have treated residents during the Covid pandemic. While other places have experienced many cases of Covid, Independence Village has had very few cases. While they have followed State Regulations, they let visitors in when possible and worked to keep residents socially and mentally active. As a result, their residents have stayed remarkably healthy during this challenging time. I believe that the staff functions as a team and that they genuinely care for their residents. It is a pleasure to visit Independence Village in East Lansing and when you cant visit, you are confident that your loved ones are in good care!
We selected this location after looking at several in the area, it seems to be the best balance between independence and well managed. The ED Maggie did an amazing job at keeping all the residents free of Covid-19 in a state that was one of the worst and within a vulnerable population. She is deservedly well respected by the guests and families. We were kept updated on a weekly basis and when the vaccine became available, the residents were the first in line and had it completed onsite. My mom is always happy, there are lots of social activities, you can be involved or not as much as you want. The apartments are nice. The in-house dining serves three meals a day, Ive come in as a guest for a few and thought they were great. Its all the efficiency of a big organization residence with the soft-touch Midwestern care that I appreciate.
Very happy my dad took up residence before the pandemic got truly out of control. Maggie has been on top of vaccination opportunities and dad and others have had their first vaccines already. My father is doing well, well fed, is being cared for, and its a great relief!
I cannot thank Maggie and her wonderful team at IVEL enough for all they do to keep the residents safe and to care for them in a loving and positive manner. Both my mom and dad reside there, and I am grateful for this everyday!
My moms health declined greatly just as COVID-19 started spreading. I had to choose an independent living facility for my mom based solely on reviews, word of mouth, and talking to workers. I was incredibly nervous since Id read negative reviews. But my mom is enjoying it and the staff has been so kind. Mom was quarentined in her room for 2 weeks, but the staff checked on and visited her regularly. None of this was expected, they just wanted to make sure mom was aclimating well. During this stressful time, the staff has been incredibly supportive, kind, and accommodating. The staff cares about their residents and in this time of stress and so many unknowns, that is clear.
Friendly helpful staff. Very nicely appointed rooms
Its been great to know my parents are being taken care here.
Staff is great. The rooms could be bigger though. My grandma will be loving here.
My parents have been taken care of in a responsible and caring fashion at Independence Village. Maggie is an outstanding Executive Director and her calm leadership during the Stay at Home order has kept her clients as safe as possible. I truly appreciate all of the extra time she took with my parents, especially my dad who is a grumpy old man. They have since moved to a facility more in tune with my mothers specific needs but I am grateful for the team at Independence Village. Thank You!
As residents at Independence Village we would recommend this to anyone looking for a place for their parent who loves people snd fun . My husband and I have been here almost 9 months and find Management and all employees to be very good friendly and helpful
Wonderful helpful staff. Residence are respected as an individual and are independent, and comfortable in their apartments.
It seems gloomy, could use more sunshine. Also could use a good deep cleaningm
The residents are wonderful! Many of them are not happy with the meal options and taste of the food, but overall, they are pleased with their surroundings.
Excellent facility with an outstanding team! We have referred numerous clients to Maggie and her team. The have all had a terrific experience. Numerous activities, high quality healthy meals, transportation services and spacious rooms. Friendly and active residents to ensure engagement and socialization. Highly recommend Independence Village of East Lansing.
After attending SEVERAL walk thrus at several other communities , asking lots of questions, crunching the numbers with our financial person, and last but not least - factoring in moms desire to have activities available onsite as well as a private home space- this place got our vote. This was over two years ago now. The staff and other residents have become friends and family to us. Peace of Mind. Moving in here was the best choice, all things considered- We are so grateful to know mom is ok and comfortable and has quite a variety of activities to choose from throughout the week!
Love the care my aunt receives
