Regina Santore, Realtor

The place was attractive on driving up to it, and had a clearly well-maintained exterior and landscaping. The setting, up in the woods, away from the road, with a field behind it but nothing else easily visible, was appealing to us. Inside, while the decor scheme was dated, it was very clean and well-maintained, and was free of smells. The units definitely had very dated vanities (the look was perhaps from the late 1980s) some of which were beginning to disintegrate on their edges, but the new manager of the place is working on updating the decor within the units; the model unit looked very good to us with updated flooring and new furniture. Theres no quartz or granite tops here, but you will also pay significantly less to live here so its a tradeoff between fancy new decor and money. What struck us was the sense of community and the warm, welcoming vibe we got from the residents. We had a good time at lunch, which was nothing special, just spaghetti, but it was good. There was salad offered as well, and a corn muffin, plus a blondie as dessert. All were perfectly acceptable. We appreciated that we didnt wait to have coffee, it was offered immediately upon sitting, and ice water was already on the table, as was the corn muffin, so we would not be hungry as we waited to have our order taken. We gave our order, and the food arrived nearly instantly. What a difference from other sit-down style places, where there can be a long wait. We liked that we did not have to get in a line cafeteria style and be responsible for carrying a heavy tray. They had fun at lunch with the residents, as it was a holiday (though the loudspeaker was overly loud, tinny, and difficult to understand clearly.) Several people came over to speak with us, and it was clear that we had things in common that we could share if we chose the community. We loved the open field and woods outside, and that the units received good light. Some opened directly on the rear area and had screened porches. There was a good amount of community space for various activities, and outings could be had Monday-Wednesday with frequency, plus transportation to doctors visits. There was no movie theater, auditorium, or pool but the manager has arranged for all of those things to be offered to residents through planned outings, including weekly swimming. We liked that they are affiliated with Holiday, which means that if we wanted to visit another city, where theres family, or just for a vacation, it could be arranged for us to stay at a sister facility. In short, for us, there was good value to be had here and its on our short list. We need a place for those who plan to stay home because they do not drive, a place where theres a sense of community and many activities in-house, and the opportunity to stay fit and spend time outdoors. We hope the decor and fixtures will be updated but thats low on the list, more of a want than a real need. The important part was that it all worked well and that maintenance would be there quickly if something were not working well; residents told us that typically maintenance would be there the day it was reported. Its the small things in life that will get under your skin, and it seems they are aware of that here. The staff was friendly and seemed to genuinely care about the residents. We liked the new manager very much, he seemed to genuinely care about the happiness and well-being of the residents. In fact, out of the managers and reps weve met thus far in visiting several places, he was by far the most genuine, knowledgeable and personable and is one of the reasons we placed this facility high on our list.
