I visited this facility
I have a relative who lives here. Facilities are lovely. The main negative is if your relative does not drive, they do not provide flexible transportation. There is a once per week grocery run: they have only 45 minutes to get their groceries, and be back outside for the bus. They have to carry any groceries themselves on the bus and to their own apartment: that is not much for an elderly person. There is zero transportation for church or additional shopping or trips such as to get take out food or go out to eat. Apparently they will transport to a doctor visit, when planned in advance. For such a nice facility, and for the age group they serve, they should have better transport services. . Otherwise, they should tell folks right up front, that if they do not drive, and do not have local family who can take them places, they should look elsewhere for living accomodations. I would give more stars if not for the transport issue: it is a big issue.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
I moved my father to Concordia. He's been there before, and we've had other relatives there. The staff is friendly and helpful. He's going to exercise class once in a while. They serve three meals, and he can ask for snacks. They have a physical therapy room that he can use for exercise, a library, and lounges to work on puzzles, sit on the fireplace, and read books. Sometimes they take the residents out for lunch.

I visited this facility
Concordia at Sumner seemed to be very expensive, but it was nice. They toured me around the place, and I was very impressed with it. It's very close to where I live and housed in a beautiful facility that looks like a castle. The facilities were nicer than what I need, really. They showed me one-bedroom, and I only met a woman who toured me who very knowledgeable about everything and explained everything to me.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My friend's apartment at Sumner on Ridgewood is very pleasant. I think they have all kinds of things. They have arts, a gym, and there are multi groups that can do all kinds of things depending on their abilities. They are involved with the students of a local high school, and they seem to be interested in the people who are living there; they try to do what they can for them.
