I visited this facility

I went to visit Ingleside Assisted Living, and the place was beautiful. The tour went well, but what I didn’t like was the fact that they have a $2000 nonrefundable one time fee which the staff who accommodated me didn’t mention. The other thing I didn’t like was on the second floor, there was a stench of urine, and that to me was a turn off. The people were very nice.

My aunt is living in Ingleside Homes. The staff working there is very wonderful and devoted. What I like most about them is that they are happy people. As a result, they exude that to the residents. They make the residents laugh and are very good with them. The room of my aunt is very spacious. It has a beautiful bathroom. They vacuum, dust and clean the room once a week. I also like that my aunt is free to come and go on the floor downstairs. The good thing is she wears a life alert pendant. If she falls in and nobody is around to hear it, she can push the button to some help. They also have a lot of games and activities. My aunt has been winning a bingo. They also celebrate everybody's birthdays. They even have trips. They can choose whether to go to the dollar store or to the local park. The independent facility has a theater, so they take the residents of the assisted living there. What I like, too, is that after breakfast, they call the residents for coffee and talk about the news. My aunt always complains about the food, but she eats it. She is a lot better healthwise than the other month because she is eating balanced diet three times a day. Overall, it has been a good place for her.

Ingleside Homes Inc wasn't favorable in terms of what I was looking for. I did not enjoy the tour very much and I didn't enjoy the staff person who showed me around. She was accommodating, but not warm and caring. She seemed tired and she wanted to be done with her work day. I really did not like the community itself. It was so dark and depressing. I would never put a loved one there because it looked to me like my loved one would walk in the door and be completely depressed. The walls were grey and the place was small and cramped. It was not inviting and it was not bright or lively; it just looked run-down and the people looked like they were just going through the flow. I did not like it at all. I feel they could make it more beautiful and even though funds are limited, there is so much they can do to brighten the place. They could have picked brighter colors to just make the place look so much nicer. It needs a major renovation. It was so dark in there and it looked bad. You walk in and it looked very sad. I couldn't wait to leave because as I was doing the tour, I was even thinking I would never ever bring my loved one here. My heart went out to the residents -- I wished I had the money to fix it up right there on the spot. Even the way that the people ate, it even looked like a cafeteria rather than a dining room. It just wasn't nice at all and I think the food service could be better, I think some of the community activities could be better. The space for the common areas where they were watching TV and where they were eating were so tight and cramped and the layout of the place could have been better, so that the people can have more space to move around.

Ingleside Homes was fine. It doesn't have a lot of space, but they are in the city. There was a really nice activity room, and they really took care of their patients. However, it was too much for my mother. The people were more ill than her and they needed a lot of care.

Ingleside Homes is one place that I can give a 1 to. That is because of the marketing person and she was on the independent building. She told me that I would be dumping my mother off and that how rude I was to dump my mother at the nursing home. I walked out of there so fast. I can't believe somebody said that. She was horrible and mean for making me feel like that. Everybody knew her and she'd been there for 10 to 12 years and I can't believe somebody like that was still in that place. Thank God everybody else was so nice. I never got past the door because of what she did.

Everybody at Ingleside seems to be happy. They have a community room where everybody was gathered together. But I'm looking for something a little brighter. This place had a nursing home feel to it. But it's not a bad place. I would recommend it to others to at least check it out.

Ingleside Homes was clean as it can be and didn't smell like a nursing home. People were very friendly. They have a lot of social activities going for the residents. They provide meals so you don't need to cook in your apartment. You select them up from the menu. That's all good, but I do like to cook sometimes.

My experience with Ingleside Homes was always a pleasant and positive one. The staff seemed to genuinely care about the residents and related to them on a personal level. It was evident it was more than just a job to them. I knew my grandfather was being cared for when I was not around. The amenities were great too, there was always something for him to do. They had two lounges with cable tv and tons of books, and the cafeteria had good food. Everyone always seemed pleasant and upbeat, and the staff was obviously skilled.
