I visited this facility

I visited a friend’s dad at Ponce de Leon. I did not think his apartment was horrible or remarkable. It was just fine. I remember going past the outdoor area, and it was beautiful and very attractive. It was homey.

My Mom moved here from a larger New England duplex one year ago into a smaller (1 bdrm) assisted living apartment. She really likes it and is very happy (even though he doesn't have access to a car).. The people are genuinely friendly and the facility is open and warm. There are numerous activities and a shuttle for residents convenience (shopping, bank). She has made some acquaintances.

My brother was temporarily moved to Ponce De Leon for a couple of weeks. The staff is good and they are attentive to the special needs of the patients. They have many activities there and the food is excellent.

My mother stayed at Ponce De Leon. The staff were really positive and very nice. The dining room and food were very good. It was wonderful and everything about it was great.

The Ponce de Leon had smaller rooms. I thought it was dated and they could do with fixing it up. I only visited once, but the staff was friendly though. It's a good location.

I visited Ponce De Leon and I liked it very much. Everybody was very nice. They showed me an apartment and they seemed very well. I would recommend this facility to other people.

I thought Ponce de Leon was great. They do a wonderful job with the older people. My in-laws are both 92, and a number of their friends who are living there have mostly positive things to say. There's transportation and there are lots of activities. It's really nice, however, it's expensive.

The staffers where just wonderful. The rooms were shared accommodations with various toileting being shared by four beds. The building was clean, and attention was given to personal hygiene of the individual patient. One must be prepared for the limited quality of food, even though allergies and food limits were noted that issue was never attended to by staff. So if you can't eat something, you still may have it served to you or your loved one. PT, bath and other hygienic facilities are mature, but clean and staff works the patient hard and well with a good care plan agreed to with family and professionals present. And they are kind, patient and willing to listen to the patient/client. Activities are provided.
