Independence Village of Rockford seemed big. Everybody was friendly, but there seemed to be a lot of older people. The guest bathroom smelled urine, and I didn?t care for that. Other than that, the place was fine. The people were OK, but they didn?t seem quite eager to say 'hi' and we were kind of stared at. It felt a little bit awkward going in there. They had a nice exercise room and an additional kitchen if the residents wanted to cook. I saw the laundry facility, and it was also nice. They had a media room, but it was on the small side. If you wanted your laundry or if you wanted TV, you had to pay extra, but I think they were on the lower end as to the cost.

Independence Village was the best one that we've seen. There were services they give you were free; for example: during the winter time, they would go out, get cars started, warm them up, and pull them up to the front door for the residents. The food was great, the people were very friendly, and there were lots of things to do. That's the one we're going to choose. The price was very reasonable, while others cost twice as much.

The rooms and the dining room looked nice. I did not find a problem with safety. My niece and her sister liked Independence Village, but they do not accept patients with electric mobility wheelchairs.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
When me and my grandmother first entered this assisted living home we were showered with hospitality. Instantly we were asked if we needed something to drink or something to snack on. They noticed right away that my grandmother had trouble walking so they brought her a wheel chair which I thought was very observant, and professional. The housing manager started on asking about what we were looking for and her basic hobbies and interests. As my grandmother answered her questions I roamed around the general lobby and felt very at home. There were books and uniquely beautiful art pieces at every book end and pillar. There were no TV's on the bottom level but I am a young adult and the elderly tend to enjoy more hands on realistic sociable activities. Games and tables were all around the lobby, people playing checkers all the way to people reading a book together. My grandmother took an interest instantly to the friendliness and respect not only of the staff but the people that were there.A lot of elderly people like to keep to themselves and are somewhat cranky and self preserved, but this was not the case. Other than beautiful ornate curtains and carpeting there were vivid fish tanks and brightly pretty flowers everywhere. I knew this was the place for her after %minutes of being here. The second time we went there my grandmother got into more detail of her needs and such. Her biggest concern was her cat Panda. Nobody else in the facility had asked to bring a pet in before but after being married for over 50 years she was very lonely until she got herself a friend. After visiting many assisted living homes that would not allow her to bring her cat with her she was addicted to Independence Village the second they let her have her cat. Overall the staff were some the nicest and caring people I have ever met. In less than 2 weeks we had her belongings slimmed down and she was moved in happily and homely. To this day I visit her and her little friend Panda. She always has a smile on her face and everybody we walk by knows her, asking her if shes going to this group or playing this game with them tonight. It makes me a very happy person knowing I was a big part in finding somewhere for her to live where she would be happy once again.
