Reviews of Prestige Senior Living at Orchard Heights
I visited this facility
Prestige Senior Living is a very nice place. We didn't choose that because it is assisted living, and my mother doesn't need that yet. The rooms are really nice. It is very spacious too. The dining room is nice looking and very welcoming. I am very impressed with that place. The staff that assisted us was very nice and very pleasant. All the places we visited have very helpful staff. I like the grounds, and I like that they have a lot of park type settings. It is very welcoming.

Administration repeatedly made commitments but never followed through.
Caregivers were not properly trained.
Very high amount of employee turnover, The turnover was not limited to just caregivers, supervisory positions also changed frequently.
Very little onsite nurse support, despite claims of having two nurses on staff.
My parent's bed was soaked with urine and nothing was done about it.

Prestige Senior has assisted and memory care, but we were only interested for memory care. We came across this facility via recommendation by another individual. The environment appeared to be pretty good in the facility but the parking was horrible. There was no place to park for visitors except walking about half a block. The food appeared to be good, but the responsiveness of the administration was horrible. We asked for a call back; we didn’t get it, I sent an email didn’t get any response, and when I finally got hold of the person, I found out that the individual who was working with us had quit.
The activities are pretty much the same with the other facility I went to. We were not satisfied with the administration response, so they must improve on that and trying to keep the same people working there. My impression when we drove into it was -- where are we going to park?

Orchard Heights was pretty good. The facility was very clean and it was remodeled. I like the staff because they're very friendly. However, they're a little bit short at times. They need more staffing. The food was pretty decent. I would recommend this place because overall they're pretty good.

When I was a sophomore in high school I decided to gain some experience and volunteer. I choose this retirement home because it was close to home and I have always wanted to experience working with elders. The facility is beautiful. The rooms are very spacious for each resident and they are able to have a large open area to either sit and talk with other residents, play a game or just relax. Another thing that's really great about this facility is the food. The food is way more than I expected. 3 course meals and always a little dessert. The staff are hard working and always make the residents feel comfortable and tended too. If I ever needed to go into a retirement home I would choose that one.
