I didn’t like Ashley River Plantation because I’m from Charleston. I know the area, and I didn’t like where it was built. They were remodeling to make it better, and the outside maintenance looked fine, but I didn’t like the smell; I think that was due to the fact that they were cooking lunch, and you could smell it when you walked in. I just didn’t care for something about the facility, which is just my personal opinion.

I wasn’t as impressed with Ashley River as I was with the other facilities. It’s a nice place but it’s not what I was looking for. The staff was very helpful. It didn’t feel like a home.

Thank you for touring Ashley River Plantation and for sharing your thoughts with us. We find that for some people it may take a few visits to fully develop a feel for a community. As such we encourage you to visit with us again, have lunch in our beautiful dining room and talk to some of our wonderful residents about life at Ashley River.

Ashley River Plantation was very nice. It didn't look like a hospital but more like some place to live. It didn't seem like a place where people went to die; it seemed like they were there to live.

I visited Ashley Riverb Plantation this week. I felt like I was at home. I was introduced to some of the staff and feel like they would welcome my mom as their family. When we need to do this we will call Karen and ask her to put mom on the waiting list

Ashley River Plantation was a little bit too grand. The visit was fine, and we did visit a room. The room was lovely and everything, but it has been brought to my attention by other people that you can be given a rate and that certain things are a la carte, and then as you move in, everything that you needed will be added on, so let's just say you go in and you think that your rate is going to be $5000 a month; it might end up being $7000. He could either have a private room, or he could share it, and they would use the same bathroom, but they would have their privacy. It had a splendid cafeteria, and they gave us a menu. You can be served anytime of the day with snacks that seemed really good. If I had the money, my husband would be there.

What I did not like about the Ashley River Plantation was that all their rooms had a bathroom, but these rooms did not have a shower and I consider that a safety issue. My mom is living with me now and the bathroom is right across the hall from her bedroom and I know that when she wakes up, she is incontinent and even though she has got the pads on, the bed pads and all that stuff, she can wake up totally soaked and if she had to walk like that soaked down the hall to the community bathroom, it wouldn't be a very good experience at all. Because I know that when she wakes up that way, I'd get her in the bathroom right away. I'd turn the heat on, take her clothes off immediately and get her under warm shower as soon as possible. I don't have to walk yards and yards to get to a community bathroom, which may be full and not available. It just seemed that the setup for Alzheimer's patients was confusing. They probably need more windows or something. It just seemed kind of dark. I didn't like the fact that the rooms did not have their own shower.

Ashley River Plantation was nice. My mother had an amnesia situation and she did not have her sight, and because of that, she was going to need the memory care. I didn't like the setup for memory care. Her room would have been too far away. The staff was wonderful. The rooms were nice. The food and the dining room were very nice. I'm sure there were a lot of activities in independent living. In the memory care, it didn't excite me at all. It seemed that the people were just sitting around. I didn't see anything that showed me that they had good, organized activities. The independent living looked nice. The memory care wasn't warm; it looked old.

Ashley River Plantation had a room available at the time I had to move my husband. It was a very nice facility. The staff seemed very committed to take care of him, and they were really interested in learning as much as they could about him. They have done a really good job of taking care of him. The rooms and apartments are very nice. They are very clean, well kept, well done, and the carpet is good. The bathroom is very nice. Almost daily they have Bingo, they go out to eat, they have some spiritual activities, and they have exercise.

Ashley River Plantation was a very nice facility, but it was just too expensive for me. I was able to look at their dining room, but I haven't eaten there, it looked nice. They have different things for the residents. I know they have happy hour for them.

We came across Ashley River Plantation when we drove by it. We were very impressed with the staff and the facility. All the people were friendly. The rooms were very attractive. There's one person in particular who stayed in touch with me over the years. I think her name is Tasha. She was very professional, patient and keeps me up to date about everything. We like that it has a homey feeling not like institutional feel. The price is reasonable too.

Ashley River Plantation made my parents' move easier. They were caring and involved with the care. The place was not big but it was clean and fresh. So far, they were happy with the move for over a month now.

Ashley River Plantation Assisted Living Center is a beautiful and cozy place that Seniors can call home. I visited the center with my Grandpa. We looked at several types of rooms that were available, based on size and price. Each room came with its own bathroom, as well as a mini fridge. The cafeteria was large and quaint with delicious meals posted on a large board for the week. They also had planned activities for the month posted on a board next to the cafeteria, which included bingo, shopping, and game night. What we liked most was that there were several sitting rooms for the residents to watch TV, play cards, or just talk. Any extra's, such as help with medications, laundry, trips to the store or doctors, and meals were all included in the price. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. We were able to talk to several of the residents, and all of them were very happy in their new home. All of them complimented the staff. The center was very clean, and quite beautiful. It looked very "Charleston" inside, with wood floors and beautiful pictures of the Charleston area. If you are looking for an Assisted Living center for a loved one, check out Ashley River Plantation. A place you and your loved one will truly enjoy.
