I am a friend or relative of resident

My mother has been at Bartlett Reserve since it opened and she could not be happier! The apartment is large and modern and has a nice patio. The food is superb. The staff and other resort guests are wonderful and are just like family to my mother. The staff turnover is very low. Any issue that arises is addressed to our satisfaction in a timely. manner. There is a wide variety of activities to choose from. The grounds are meticulously groomed and the atmosphere inside and out is both elegant and homey.The swimming pool and patio are added bonuses. My mother makes daily use of the wellness center.

I moved my mom here about seven months ago, and it's been a wonderful experience. The staff is friendly, genuine, and accommodating, and helped to make her transition as easy as possible. The facility itself is very nice, with an ever-expanding list of amenities and activities. The residents seem genuinely happy overall and are a welcoming bunch and a well-integrated community. I find that the atmosphere here is much more relaxed and positive than the other Durham community from where she moved. They have taken great care of her and I've seen the staff really go above and beyond on numerous occasions to provide personalized service and make all reasonable accommodations (e.g., the BR transport van doesn't accommodate my mom's power chair, so they take all necessary steps to arrange transportation to her doctors' appointments via a service that does). She has become much more active in this community and it has been nice to see her feeling so engaged and at home. And no review would be complete without commentary on the amazing food that comes out of their kitchen. Everything is as fresh as possible and most things are made in house with a focus on local, sustainable suppliers when available. I have a food allergy and the kitchen is very kind about accommodating that when I frequently join her for meals. I really feel like choosing Bartlett Reserve was the best decision we could have made and they are a welcome addition to the South Durham community.

This is a top-notch, caring facility. We are guests, and are treated in all respects as guests 9and also as friends). Summation : I love this place.

I visited this facility

My parents have really enjoyed the flexible meal hours and the quality of the menu. Everyone on the staff has been very responsive when help was needed. Just waiting for a few more amenities to be complete such as the whirlpool.

The main thing that stands out is the number of activities available to residents. In addition, the level of services and the caring, dedicated staff are superb.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I have lived in another independent living place in the area and I felt like I was simply marking time. At Bartlett Reserve, I feel like I am really living!! It's great being here.
