I visited this facility
This facility, offering independent living for those who are 62 and older and in fairly good health, is located close to Providence Hospital, with ample parking provided for residents and visitors. It borders some sketchy areas, but it feels fairly safe in this particular spot.
It’s a very big complex of buildings, well decorated—and managed very nicely. The housing is set up in multiple towers—and some people are put off by that. But once you’re inside, the place is very welcoming and doesn’t feel cavernous. It’s easy to find your way around. There is a security system, but no dedicated front desk or security guards.
The apartments are either new or renovated, and have an impressive and upbeat feel. They have funky looking sofas and an interesting color scheme, doesn’t feel at all like a “senior living.”
Activities are posted in the common areas—a lot of community outings, bible study, bus trips, casino trips. Residents seem to sit to gather and socialize in spots both inside and outside. The residents also come and go in the community; most are dependent on public transportation, which is convenient, although some drive.
There is a group meal program provided, but most of the independent residents cook or get meals on their own.
Some people do hire care service providers from the outside when needed; no skilled nursing is provided here.
