Ginger Cove was a beautiful community. I don't have anything derogatory to say except it's very expensive. They were marvelous. I don't have any complaints about them. Everybody was friendly. We saw the woodworking shop, art class, and the library.

My mother was a resident for 20 years until she died recently. The apartments are small, the food is mediocre at best, and the restaurant staff is inattentive. The nursing staff in the independent living section is overworked but do everything they can for the residents.
The best part of Ginger Cove is the assisted living arrangements. I wish I had gotten my mother into that section earlier. Her quality of life would have been much improved.
The nursing home section is a nightmare. My mother was left alone in her bed for 15 minutes while she was having a heart attack so the only person on duty could go wait for the paramedics. I was on the phone with her listening to her call out for somebody to be with her. That is only one incident of many.
The worst part is the finances. Two weeks after my mother died, Ginger Cove removed money from my account to pay her bill, even though their contract specifically states that the money should have come from the entrance fee. Then the following bill had a credit on it. Three months later and neither my money nor the credit have been returned.

I believe we've been to Ginger Cove twice. It’s a wonderful facility and has a good operation. The people were extremely nice. We had a session where we had lunch and met some of the people who lived there. Then we went back and sat down with the marketing people and went with the whole process. They were very accommodating, we are still in their mailing list and gets information from them. They have all the amenities you might require as well. They really had a nice orientation. The only problem is we really love the idea of a community where there's all ages – from little kids to older people. That is the atmosphere that we prefer and unfortunately the place is a little bit isolated from the normal mainstream where people live.
