I visited this facility

The apartments at Bella Terra were very nice. I liked that they had lot of activities and that the people were very friendly. They gave us some dessert, and my sister said it was very good. The apartments were very sunny, spacious, and nice. The person who assisted us was very nice. They had a wait room, a very nice swimming pool, heated pool, arts and crafts, sports room, and library.

I’ve moved my aunt to Bella Terra. It’s beautiful; it has all the amenities that any one could hope for. It’s like being on a cruise every day and she’s very happy. They were able to get her a 2-bedroom assisted living which was what she wanted. I have visited other places but finding a 2-bedroom was very limited because most assisted living places don’t have 2-bedroom units. This facility has converted some independent-living units to assisted living so that’s why they have 2-bedroom units.

The staff has been very responsive. My aunt eats everything and finishes every meal. She’s delighted not to have to worry about what she’s making for any meal and there is always something that she enjoys. I have to say that I’m satisfied with their service. Any issue or problem that I’ve had has been neatly addressed.

Bella Terra was a very nice facility; the experience there was very good. They were very nice and very accommodating. They even gave me a cupcake to take home with me. I was impressed by that that they would extend themselves that far, and the cupcake was very tasty, too. The drawback for it was that it was an hour and 20 minutes from my house.

Their rooms were a little bit bigger than the ones that I had seen and were very nice. The bedrooms and the living area were large enough. I didn’t care so much about the kitchen, but they did have a kitchen. They had an in-room washer and dryer. It was definitely a superior place.

I like the entrance because it didn't seem like everybody was gathering there. I like the apartments, which were nice sized, and they had nice full size and well-equipped kitchens. It was more reasonably priced, and the salesperson seemed good. They had a nice dining room, but they only do happy hour once a week, which I thought my mother would like. Cleanliness seemed nice. Bella Terra is where I would like my mother to go.

Bella Terra was nice. They had a pool, which was lovely. I liked it. I remember there were different levels, and they were in different areas. In the dementia area, the people couldn't really use the pool unless someone was with them. I did like that they had a large area to walk around. It had a nice, warm feeling.

There was a point in time when both my husband and I planned to go to assisted living. He was the one who needed assisted living, and I was going to go with him. Bella Terra is the one we picked. It was a two-bedroom, two-bath room which was quite lovely. It is expensive but quite lovely. We already put a deposit down for us to come in, but my husband got very ill and eventually died, so it was impossible. In every place we went to, the staff is more than kind and just fine. It is a very popular place, and the available accommodation goes fast. There was one apartment available that was suitable for us, and like I said it was quite expensive. The rest of the place wasn't necessary expensive, juts this one. The facility is quite clean and quite lovely.

I went to Bella Terra. They were expensive. The apartments were nice. They have a very attractive facility. It looked like they're keeping it clean and that they have it well run. I would say that they're sort of first-class kind of an assisted living facility, but you are going to pay good money to get that kind of thing. They have activities that you can do almost anything you wanted to there. They have every kind of thing you can think about that is suitable for a senior person.

We also visited Bella Terra. We talked to family members and the people. We saw what they were eating. I talked to staff members as well. They were on top of things, and the people were happy. It was a nice place to be in an assisted living place. We looked at something where people in general were happy.

Mom has a lovely room in Bella Terra, she gets better care with at least $2000 a month or less, and I’m happy and very pleased with it. The problem now is that she is back in the hospital. But she likes it so much better, the other facility was so much prettier but she just likes the people and she has got the most beautiful big room with a beautiful kitchen, it’s just amazing. The girls are nice, and she has made some friends and she has never any of that in the other facility she has been.

But, I would suggest that they hire more aids, I think the aids were very, very hard but I don’t think there are enough of them. I think that there food is okay, there are meals my mother does not eat and she is not fussy so I think they could improve on their meals. But overall she is happy there.

I thought Bella Terra was nice. I went to a few places because my mother is starting to get old, but I'm going to have her in a place sooner or later. I've heard different things from different people, like you have to get on a list and pay money. I went to probably half a dozen places, and there's no list. All these places would take her just about right in. I thought we had to get on a waiting list. The staff there was very nice. They answered all my questions. The people were cheery, and the place looked like there were different degrees of older people. Some people are in wheelchairs, and other people are up and walking around. It goes from one extreme to the other. It stood out from a lot of the other places. When I went down there, they were all painting the outside of it, and it looked nice. As far as I remember, it was clean; it didn't smell. I was in some places that did kind of smell a little funny. Nobody looked bored. Some residents are just disengaged. Despite how or what you do, they're not going to be engaged; but the people who looked like they wanted to do something were. They looked like they were quite happy. I talked with some of the people when I was there. They said "hello," so I talked to them. They invited me for lunch, and they gave me a little cupcake. The dining room I think was not quite restaurant style but definitely wasn't cafeteria style. I would call it institutional dining. The facility has a little bit of an age to it. I know they were working on the outside, updating it, and I think they'll probably spruce up the inside a little bit.

We took a tour of Bella Terra. The facility was very nice and very clean. It was more like a condo atmosphere than a hotel. There were a lot of small, close rooms so people seemed to be separated. We didn't like that about the place. The staff was friendly but when we asked for a callback about something, they never called us back. The residents there just didn't seem as happy.

I thought this facility was just fine, but it doesn't stand out as much in my mind as Acorn Glen in Princeton, where our grandparents next moved. It was very nicely carpeted and decorated, but it reminded me a lot of a hotel, and didn't really feel homey. The food also seemed to be hospital-like, but I understand that it's not meant to be a 5-star restaurant. Still, I never really felt a personal connection to this place. It was just a regular assisted living facility. Perhaps it just wasn't my or my family's niche; the outdoor areas were lovely, and I really liked the swimming pool and general store. I just wish the staff had been a bit more personable and left a bigger impression on myself, my parents, and my grandparents. Still a fine place overall, it just wasn't quite what we were looking for in an assisted living facility.
