My mom is over at Flushing House. They have 24-hour security, three meals a day, and the food is fabulous. She has a studio apartment, and it is very nice. The people are very friendly. It is a 55 and older building but quite a few residents have walkers. The atmosphere is very friendly -- the people and the staff are very friendly. The place is very nice, and I would recommend it very highly. They have so many things going on like arts and crafts, and they have an exercise room, library, beauty parlor, bank, computer room and movie room where they show movies every day. They have bingo, cards -- they do everything. The doctors are there, so really, it is a community in itself. I like it very much and would suggest it to anybody. There is always something going on, which is what I like about it. The people are very busy over there.

My aunt was in Flushing House. It was very nice. She had a studio apartment. It was very spacious, clean, and nice. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

My brother is at Flushing House last February, and he loves it there. He has adjusted very well. The staff is excellent, and the food is excellent as well. The place is dated, but it is kept very clean. They take care of my brother's needs, and they have emergency cords in their rooms; I like that. They have daily activities like they take them on trips on where they want to go. Their food is great as well.

I visited Flushing House’s premises, and everything was alright. We talked to some of the family members, and they just had enough to do. The facility was very clean and nice, and everything was well presented. There were no problems at all. We were there during the lunch hour, and the dining room looks OK. The place was safe and secured. What really impressed me was the proximity to public transportation.

Flushing House is a beautiful place. It's very big, and they have a gorgeous rooftop that has a beautiful view. The staff is so nice. If my mom had the money, I would put her there. I heard the food is really good. However, I guess the price could be cheaper because it was $2,500. It's a bit expensive, and my mother can't afford it. But I think the most selling point of that place is the beautiful view from the rooftop. You can sit up there and you see the sunset and sunrise. The dining area is like a restaurant. But they don't serve breakfast. For $2,500 a month, they should include breakfast. They only serve coffee and a donut. Elderly people need a real meal, especially first thing in the morning. It would be really good for them because it's just the most important meal of the day.

My folks both lived in this facility for 2 years. After my mom passed my dad moved in with my brother. While they lived in this facility they were treated with dignity and respect. They both enjoyed their time there.

My father is in Flushing House and so far so good. He is there for three weeks already, but he is happy. We have checked a couple of places, but Flushing House's location is perfect. Service is also good. We are happy with it.

The Flushing house seems like a great place, every time I visit my uncle he is in a fun mood and is always busy playing cards with his friends from the building. It wasn't always the case. I remember when he first moved in, he was quite anxious and uncertain about the whole thing. It took a couple of weeks for him to get settled in, but he made some friends and the staff took a liking to him. The amenities are fantastic and are reminiscent of a summer camp for the elderly. Of particular note is the pool and the large game room with the huge televisions. The game rooms are always crowded - but he says thats a good thing: "there is always something to do". All is all both he and I are very happy with the place. The food is so so in the taste department but generally very healthy. Good thing considering he is a diabetic.

My mom has been to Flushing house for quite sometime now. The staff is really nice and they are all terrific! They are very knowledgeable with regards to what they are doing. I am really satisfied. She made so many friends easily and she's really happy about it. Her room was really spacious and beautiful. This is a great place to live.

My friend is settled in Flushing House. It's a non profit. It has a regular meal. When the money runs out this flushing house will subsidize her and put her on community medicaid. She doesn't lose her room and she will stay in the same place. It's non profit that's why they could do it. So all the other facilities that we visited are all profit making. Also my friend is more mobile where she is. This place is close to church. She can actually walk to church any time she wants because she's very religious. I'm pretty sure she's in the right place.

Very nice and new; perfect for my 90's parents. They'd have 2 BRs, but think they are too young to move in now!
