My experience with St. George Village was very favorable. The staff seemed to be part of management, like their chef had been there from the day they opened. Their director spent an hour with us, and she said, "I would ask you to ask me questions and then whatever you're going to ask, I will tell you." They had a very nice library, a room for people to meet and play cards, and they have computer classes for people.
It is owned by a Catholic church, so they have a church on the property, and other faiths come there. They had a beautiful lake with a walkway around it and an indoor pool. They had two dining areas -- one a formal one where you have to get dressed, and one café which is informal. The place was very well kept, and the staff was extremely courteous. I was very favorably impressed.
It is a little more expensive; they ask for a deposit, and a major part of it is refundable, but in return they check out your finances to make sure you can afford to live there. If you live long enough and run out of your resources, they take the responsibility with you. Their waiting period is two years to get there. They were well staffed, and their philosophy was somewhat different. It doesn't say the residents will follow its rules; it says we will follow the residents. I looked at the menu, and it seemed to be first class; things like salmon and shrimp were there. They will fix the room the way you want it. If you want above and beyond their standard, you will have to pay for it, and they'll do whatever you want.
