A safe clean beautiful friendly and well-managed facility. My mom live there for a little over a year and I really cant say enough good about the management and the staff and even the people. Its a well-built warm and clean place. At the time it was less expensive than other places as well but I dont know if thats the case now. Thankful they were there for my mom.

After investigating 5 independent, assisted living properties, I settled on Genessee Gardens in Flint Mi. It has been an absolutely amazing experience. Mary in the sales department was extremely helpful. She encouraged me to eat lunch with the residents to get a feel for the place, which I did. All of the ladies I met were lovely and gave me their honest opinions. All were happy living there. They were ultimately the reason I decided Genessee Gardens was perfect for my Mom! She has been a resident for 2 months now and is loving it! The staff is wonderful! They know all the residents by name and work hard to get to know them on a personal level. Kelly has been fabulous! The few issues we have had she has taken care of immediately. Adrienne was working the day Mom arrived and did everything possible to make her feel welcomed. LaShawn the activities director is fantastic! There are a lot of activities and family are encouraged to participate. She definitely earns her money and is loved by everyone. Tom in maintenance has been extremely helpful and goes above and beyond the call of duty. He has really helped me make this a true home for my Mom. The building is beautiful. My Mom has a studio with a cutout and it works perfect for her. She loves the balcony! As with anything somethings can be improved on. The food initially was not as consistent as we would have liked. However they have been working on it and made significant improvements! Mom says the quality has really gone up. The meals Ive eaten have been excellent this past month. Family can eat for free and we have done this many times. Most places charge $5. Kelly has been working hard in this area and it really shows. Housekeeping is included. A few small glitches ie. wrong size sheets on the bed, not enough toilet paper. However when I bring it to Kellys attention it is taken care of in a timely fashion. Taking into account the small issues weve had. I gave it a 5 star rating, because they work very hard to correct any issues. If your reading this then you have also seen the negative reviews. I would suggest visiting Genessee Gardens yourself. Talk with the staff and residents. It may not be the right fit for everyone but it sure is for my Mom.

My Mother-in-law has been a resident for the last year and half. I cant say enough good things about the staff and facility. They have been wonderful to my Mother-In-law especially during this pandemic. Excellent management of the Pandemic. My Mother-in-law is very content and I would highly recommend the facility to anyone looking for an excellent and affordable facility with lots of care and attention to their residents.

I received a call back from Sherry Howe on the first business day after I sent questions on the website. I had a lovely conversation with her. She answered all of my questions and sent me follow up emails with video tours and documentation to assist my mother in making a decision.

We moved my Mom in the first of June. During our research of the facility, each one of the staff members were extremely helpful in working with us to help us in our decision. The move in and transition has gone very smoothly and the help from the staff has continued when we had questions. Even going above and beyond. For loved ones that still desire independent living while needing some assistance (e.g. med mgmt), some social interaction and prepared foods, Genesee Gardens offers a very nice valued priced option. Certainly people can have issues or missed expectations. In our experience with the current staffing, I nor my Mom have never witnessed any of the staff being rude or unprofessional. Far from it.

I only have wonderful things to say about Genesee Gardens in Flint, MI!!! Especially during the pandemic! My mom has been living here for 5 years and I have no complaints! It is comforting to know they implemented and follow through with strict precautions during the pandemic. I feel bad we couldnt visit for a while, but we called her every day, I dropped off grocerys, treats, books, magazines for her to read once a week and the busy staff delivered them in a timely fashion. She also waved to us from her balcony. With so many high risk people living there it is comforting to know they werent taking chances with people coming and going or residents interacting with each other. My mother raves about the food -quality and quantity that is delivered to her 3 times a day, along with snacks!! Kudos to the wonderful, caring staff at Genesee Gardens!

I came here for a meeting with Mary. And in spite of the mud and icy weather we have been having the entry way was very clean. The residents were having a meal, and it made me smile to see them spending time together. I would think if my parent or loved one was looking for a independent living community. I would be glad there are staying somewhere and making other friends and enjoying the social community here at Genesee gardens.
