Freedom Village was just as nice as the other one I visited, but they had more activities. It was an older unit, but if I had gotten an apartment, they would strip it and make it brand new again. Their one-bedroom was much cheaper than the efficiency at the other place I visited. It was continuing care, and the fee was for the future when ehy would take you up to the nursing home. Even though you could not know if you would be using it, you had to pay in advance. The staff was very nice and very helpful. I ate at their restaurant, and the food was good. They had a sports bar, a little steak house, and three restaurants besides the main dining area.

I liked the location of Freedom Village. I liked the apartments, the food, and the activities. I liked everything about it except that you had to buy the apartment, and I did not want to do that.

Freedom Village is outstanding in every way. From the people we met there to the food, everything was outstanding; the physical environment is beautiful, and the quality of care seemed to be outstanding. It's excellent. They have a wide range of rooms, from studio to 2-bedroom/2-bathroom with extra small room as a den. The campus is 7 or 8 buildings. They have 3 resident buildings, each of them with its own dining room and its own staff. Everything is very modern and very up to date. They have everything, from political discussion groups, a swimming program, and all kinds of physical activities.
It's a continuing care facility. So you're going as independent living, and if time comes when you need assisted living, it's there. The staff is highly qualified. And if you get into something deeper and you need more help, they have a memory care unit and a skilled nursing unit. The overall impression is elegance. The people there are an educated population and seem to be mentally and physically active. It's in Tampa, St. Petersburg, in Sarasota area, so you have a large variety of places you can go to do things, and they provide transportation and whatever else you need to get there.

We thought Freedom Village was a great place. The rooms are spacious and clean. Eleanor was very helpful, very kind, and she was wonderful. They offered to take time with my husband's parents and gave them a tour via FaceTime on an iPad. They were just very helpful and not pushy. They had anything you could possibly want to do. You wouldn't have to be idle for a moment. We would have liked them to move there.
It looked a little bit aged, and some of the common areas had huge ceilings. There was some dust and cobwebs, but overall, it was clean and well maintained. I don't mean to say it wasn't. But other than that, the hallways and the rooms themselves were very clean and well maintained. It's a big campus.
