I visited this facility

I was very impressed with Pointe at Kirby Gate and it was close to our neighborhood. I had the people evaluate him, but he did not qualify as he cannot move on his own. I liked it because it was small, and I felt like the people were friendly. I ran into a few of the residents and everybody seemed pretty happy and content. We liked the rooms; they had four styles. The studio was one big room, but it was kind of sectioned off to have the appearance of a separate bedroom -- that was the room I liked -- and it was the smallest which was fine and basic. They had a little small meeting room that they did exercises and it didn't appear as a gym. It was small but I think that’s where they would meet for exercises. They had a little outside patio and a lounge area. Everybody seemed really friendly and homey.

I went for lunch at The Pointe, and it was nice. The dining room was nice, and the food was good. They also have a memory care unit, but it was a little more expensive. They have a very nice environment. The room was very nice.

The Pointe at Kirby Gate was clean. It wasn’t as bright as some of the other places but it had a VERY homey attitude. Everybody was VERY friendly. I like very much the idea that every resident had pictures where people would see who they are, what they’re interested in and what they don’t like. When you went in the kitchen, they had pictures of all the residents on the wall with the listing of problems of the different food so the chef knew exactly what they could and could not deal with. It was very nice and individualized. The residents were really engaged in activities. There was a room of people just having a good time. One resident thought I was her daughter so we talked for a few minutes. They also have outside activities like exercise, church activities and happy hour every Friday. They seldom have a vacancy and I understand why.

My mother moved in to The Pointe at Kirby Gate on July first, and I am really happy with them. Everybody on the entire staff always know how my mother is. I don't care who answers the phone, they always say, "Oh, your mother is at lunch," or "She's doing this and that." She has a 500 square foot studio with a little kitchen, a bath, a nice size closet, big window, and high ceiling. It is very clean and nice. Their activities are amazing. They have had an activities director in there for about 15 years. His name is Tony, and he gets everybody out. I have never seen such an active group of assisted living residents because, you know, sometimes they have problems and donÕt want to be engaged, but he goes in and gets them. The way that they structure their activities blends in with the mealtimes. So, other than people going to take a nap, the people are always engaged.It is really beautiful. It feels like a home. The decoration is really warm, and I really think she will become accustomed to it. It has a very nice lobby. It is all in a square, like a courtyard. So it is very nice, and you will never feel like you are separated. The dining room area is attractive, and the food is excellent.

The Pointe was actually nice. I liked that it was small and the staff was engaged with everybody. They were very friendly, very nice, and very open. They just had a water leak, and they were in the process of being rebuilt, but it was very nice. The activities director was the first person who came to us when we were there, and he seemed very friendly. During the number of visits we went by there, we could see the activities director interacting with the residents.

I like The Pointe because of its size; it is very small, and the people here are just incredible. My mother’s room is fine. They’re having an Easter party, they do Bingo, and they play all kinds of games. They go shopping, and they had a little city tour the other day.

My aunt stayed at The Pointe at Kirby Gate for almost three years before she passed away. She received good care and the staff seemed nice. The residents all looked well-taken care of. The rooms were nice, spacious, very clean and well-appointed. They had a beautiful patio area where the residents could sit and admire the flowers.
