I visited this facility

The Village at Waterman Lake was very nice. They have wonderful facilities at that place for people who want to do gardening or puzzles, and games. If you have your family there there's a nice small room that you could bring the family in. They have a small dining room if you want to have an elegant dinner. The only thing I didn’t care for is I thought the rooms were small for a single bedroom. The people who showed me around were wonderful, and it’s very close to her house. You’re not going to have as nice as a place. This place was really nice, very clean, and people are very friendly. It was a very very pleasant experience, and the woman who showed us around was wonderful. I have no complaints on that. There were no surprises, she was very clear on what we’re getting, and what it was. It was just expensive, and that was hard for us to follow.

The Village has excellent assisted living. The staff is happy and always willing to help out. They have been wonderful in getting my Aunt situated and engaged in all of the activities. I cannot say enough good things about the facilities and the staff….The retirement counselors are excellent and informative.

The Village at Waterman Lake was very lovely. It was like a hotel. It was less expensive than the other ones that I had visited. All the amenities were amazing. The rooms were gorgeous.

The Village At Waterman Lake was very pretty, but they have assigned seating, they want you to eat three meals a day in the dining room, and it is 25 minutes from Providence, so I decided that wasn't what I want.

The woman we met was very good. She was wonderful. The facility has beautiful setting, and it is near big shopping center, which is nice. That's about the only thing it had going for it. The rooms were a little bit smaller than I would like. They weren't bad, and it would have been alright if they didn't have the other drawbacks. They gave me a list of their calendar of what was going on, but we didn't really observe anything. There was a room with a lot of people sitting around having some kind of discussion, but that's all. They never called me back, and that's another thing; I think if they really were interested in me, they should have called me back, but they didn't.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful the staff, facility, food, and TLC is at The Village of Waterman Lake. They truly care about both the residents and families, and do so much to go above and beyond -- whether it be help in getting help in getting settled to fun activities or everyday issues or concerns... a terrific community!

My mom was a resident at The Village for almost two years. As a family member, I've witnessed an extraordinary change in my mother's quality of life. The Village is without question the best assisted living facility in Rhode Island. The caregivers are second to none. Many thanks to Diane (activities director) for her love and care for my mother. A true friend indeed.

I am so happy that my dad was a resident at the Village at Waterman Lake. Being at the "Village" is like being part of a family. That is the atmosphere that is cultivated there. All of the staff's interactions with residents and family are caring and compassionate. The care that my dad received there was exemplary, whether the person involved was an administrator, CNA, nurse, activity director, counselor, maintenance, or housekeeping. All worked together and the result was a safe, warm, and personal living experience.

The staff is knowledgeable and professional as well. Knowing the challenges and frustrations that my dad was experiencing because of his health issues, particularly in the past year, the staff worked very hard to provide daily experiences that could keep dad busy and engaged in life to avoid depression and loneliness. Whenever a problem or new issue arose as a result of dad's deteriorating condition, a trained staff person proposed solutions; also, of prime importance to the staff was keeping dad clean, dressed well, and respecting his dignity. I am comforted to know that in addition to family members, dad had a family at The "Village" that gave him an exceptional quality of care.

The Village at Waterman Lake is nice and very clean. It was around four or five miles from my place. I didn’t consider it because of the travelling and it gets pretty bad in the winter. The area is up on a hill. It is so pleasant, it’s like country. They have rehab and I know people were pleased with the rehab there. The staff is very nice. The rooms are OK but I didn’t go into a lot of the rooms. They always have something going on there and the food is very good. They also have a daycare.

The Village at Waterman Lake was very comfortable and very well-treated. I liked the staff best in the facility because they were very caring and they watched out for us.

My aunt liked The Village at Waterman Lake the best of the several ALFs that I had shown to her. One of the real draw was that the community itself was in a rural type setting and there was a lake across the street and during the summer months, the residents go on weekly boating trips and my aunt loves boating. The ALF side was beautiful and their dining room was elegant looking. It was a huge facility. I think it holds 100 people. My aunt has memory loss and when they tried her over here, she was overwhelmed because of the bigness of the facility. She had a negative reaction to it. She had to be put into their dementia unit with a locked door.

Right from the first visit, the staff was warm and welcoming. There is a family feeling within the community and the residents all try to make each other feel comfortable. Within a week, everyone knew my mom's name. The facility has something for everyone, special interest events/outings, shopping and most importantly for us, transportation to medical appointments. It is clean, the food is well presented and the variety is extensive.

Beautiful facility and well kept landscape. Alzhiemer's unit has wonderful staff and great activities. However, the nursing home is not exceptional;staff are not as attentive and my family member is already ill. Residents are only showered three times a week, and the food is okay if you like processed meat on white bread for lunch. All this for 120,000 a year.
