I visited this facility
We visited Franke Tobey Jones Retirement Estates. It was a very nice visit. They're friendly people. It is a very impressive campus, and they offer not just apartments but also cottages. They also have an older section of apartments, and they have some beautiful garden apartments. The various alternatives that they give you for places to stay are extensive. They have green, well-maintained garden areas. They have education programs and very good activities.

We are living now in Franke Tobey Jones Retirement Estates and are very comfortable here in the assisted living building. We like it. The facility is beautiful. The meals are flexible and delicious. There are ample opportunities for activities. The people are interesting and friendly. The reasons we chose Franke Tobey Jones are because our insurance pays for this and it suits our needs. The apartment we have is exactly the right size and became available quickly. We like the location next to Point Defiance Park.

Franke Tobey Jones was a nice facility. It was an older facility. I thought it was probably 30 or 40 years old. They had nice apartments and duplexes. They had lots of activities, and it was in a really nice location. It was really a well-respected retirement community. The staff was very helpful. They gave us the grand tour and even gave us an option on coming and spending 2 or 3 days there, and it was very pleasant. The food was good. They had a calendar they showed us of everything that was going on. They had cruises, local trips, and also internal activities. They had lots of clubs like gardening club and bridge club. They had lots of trips to local museums and stuff. It was a really nice campus.

My Grandmother has lived at Tobey Jones for about two years now. I believe the whole facility has three separate buildings. Part is dedicated to independent seniors who live in their own apartments, and the rest is for people who need closer medical attention. My grandma has her own apartment with a kitchen, mainroom, bedroom, and bathroom, plus a outdoor balcony with a storage closet. She also has her own assigned parking space. She is very pleased with it and has no intention of moving anywhere else. She keeps active by attending art classes, participating in art shows, and attending concerts that are put on in the main building. The facility has a gym area with workout machines, and a cafe open for lunch with soups and sandwiches. I can't speak to the nightly food service, but I believe they have a dining room for those without a kitchen and she is free to eat there if she likes. Her apartment building has a lavish lobby sittingroom with a fireplace and a very friendly receptionist. The lawns and walkways are very clean and well-manicured with bushes and other plants. I have always felt comfortable visiting her there.
