The Willows was very attractive. The staff was OK, but they didn’t really follow up on some of my phone calls. It was clean and organized.

The Willows is the newest and cleanest of all the places I visited. It did not resemble any kind of nursing home at all. It resembles a 4-star hotel. Mom is adjusting, and it is the best place for her. The whole place is bright and airy.

We visited The Willows. I liked the location. It was a nice place. The marketing person that we talked with was extremely helpful and extremely positive. It was a really pleasure to be going through the features of that place. What we did not care for was they did not have a covered parking for our cars. The way that place was organized, it was primarily for people that needed full nursing assistance, and we felt we were not in that stage. Most of their people did not have automobiles, and they were very much dependent on transportations provided by The Willows. We felt that the residents there were too elderly for us.

I visited The Willows. Their facility is very nice. I did not really have any problem with their specific facility. I looked at one of their studios. I was not turned off by their place. The thing that most turned me off is that particular day, there was a lot of traffic in The Villages, and it was the opening day of school. The facility itself is a very adequate facility.

The food at The Willows is pretty good. The facility is alright. It’s ample. The rooms are too small.

The Willows is a new facility, it was beautiful, everybody was nice, and they were very friendly. The representatives bent over backwards to make us feel at home. We ate a meal there -- which was delicious. They’ve got independent living and assisted living, and both of those are in one apartment, so you don’t have to move. It was very affordable. However, the apartments don’t have stove tops, and I would miss it. We saw a lot of the clients, they were happy to talk to us, and it was lovely.

The Willows was small with only two stories, which was more the size my dad wanted. Because it was smaller and there were fewer residents there, we felt that they would be able to keep an eye on him a little bit better than in a larger place. The other reason we liked it was the location and that it was right down the street from my father's neurologist office.

Mom was at The Willows at Wildwood. We like the people. They were very nice. It was a new facility. However, the management never got fortified. They had people from other Brookdales coming to cover almost all the big jobs, and that went on the whole time Mom was there when we finally said this isn’t working for us. They didn’t have 24/7 nursing care in their memory care, and the doctor didn’t want her going back there because of that. It is an assisted-living, but they also have memory care. It was new when we moved my mom in there, and some of the things they said were going to be there, just never were. The management staff never had solidified. My mom, in terms, of her everyday care was fine. They were very nice, and they took care of her. However, the activities that were promised weren’t being provided. They had the standard stuff, but not a lot of music.

The Willows is a lovely facility; it’s brand new and it’s excellent. I had no qualms about moving my mother there. The place was large, clean, and modern. The young lady that showed me around was very helpful. I knew what questions to ask and she had all the right answers. When I was taking a tour of the facility, I saw 2 different activities going on. One set is for people who were further along in dementia and the other is for people without dementia. The bathroom is particularly designed that there are grab bars in the showers and an elderly person would have no problem taking a shower.

The Willows at Wildwood is first class. They take care of the residents. My brother has been here for two months now. They have entertainment, you could get a walker or a ride if you can't walk, and they have exercise classes. The food is good, as well as the staff. He is happy and comfortable there.

The Willows at Wildwood was very nice. I don't have anything bad to say about them. They're quite a bit smaller than what we're used to living in, and that's one of the things we have to adapt to. The dining room was clean. We had lunch there, and the food was good. There were some people playing cards.

The Willows was absolutely gorgeous. It was very impressive and laid out very nicely. Of course, it was brand new. Everyone was very friendly, and we were introduced to many of the staff, which took the time to stop and sit with my dad. They had more amenities and more choices for the residents than the other facilities that we visited in the area. They had a game room. Their dining area was like a restaurant style, which offered a lot more choices for the food. They don't have set dining hours like the other place we went, which had a 2 hour window of when to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The thing my dad was very impressed with was their medical staff. They had a doctor on staff and a cardiologist that came in on a regular basis. Someone also came in to draw their blood. It was endless -- the things that they offered. There were transportation services for the residents, which were much more extensive than the places we visited. They had a library. They had Wi-Fi and internet access in the room for the residents. They had the salon for personal services. I couldn't think of anything that they don't have.
