I visited this facility

The staff was excellent at the Waterford. The residents looked happy, busy and have been very engaging with each other. It seemed like there were more women than men.

We visited The Waterford for my mother. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. The entrance was very open, and airy. I enjoyed the lunch. I met with some of the staff, and some of the residents. I liked the room choices. The facility was expensive, but reasonably-priced. Overall, it may be next to the top-pick for my mom. They had a recreational director, too. At that time, we walked in on a group that was learning about the iPad. Somebody would come in once a week, and give a class on that. They would take you to medical appointments, too.

My mother has lived at Waterford for eight months now. She loves the food and companionship she has found there. She is residing in a one bedroom apartment with her own furniture. They provide cleaning service weekly including washing bed and bath linens. Washing machines for everyone's use are provided. She enjoys participating in the exercise and walking classes. And she loves the Bingo games.

I love The Waterford and has everything I need. Transportation is very good, and they have a lot of activities, which I like. The staff is very helpful and has always been very considerate. Sometimes I don't like the food because it's something I don't like orI don't like the way it's made, but for the most part, it's OK. Living in a community where there are many people, you can't satisfy everybody all the time. I like the different choices offered; they do an ala-carte menu in addition to their daily menu. I've been in three different apartments in this place. One was the smallest size they offer and was very comfortable when I first moved in, but I started needing more medical supplies and found it got cramped. The medium-sized one didn't have enough closet space, which was the only problem I had in that room. In the room I'm have now, the closet is very large, and there's also a coat closet, so there is plenty of space to store stuff. We play bingo twice a week and Pokeno once a week. They have a happy hour plus some other activity every Friday, transportation to church if you want to go, and transportation to Walmart and HEB once a week. They also have what they call quick errands twice a week, and you can go to the bank, the post office, to get your watch repaired, to one of those places to get your hemlines fixed, or other places like that. You can go almost anywhere. We have a walking group who walk inside the building because we have a lot of handicapped seniors and it is better for them to walk on a smooth surface. They walk the building and every hall three times a week. I would like a pool, but I don't think that's going to happen. We do use the community pool; we have access to it, I believe, three times a week. They'll transport us to the pool Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, or about three times a week when it's open during the season because it's an outside pool. They also have an exercise room available whenever you want to use it and exercise classes five days a week. You use it at your own risk, but we do have it. We have weights, bikes, and one of those walking machines.

I like the layout of the room at the Waterford. It was smaller. The grounds was way down on the northeast side of town. It’s pretty well established, old and kind of rundown too.

The Waterford is a good community. It has excellent amenities and services. My mother's room is good, the staff is good, everybody is really good. It's just that she doesn't like it. We put her there because there's a life there. They have events, games, exercise, libraries, bingo, they take the elderly out, and even some residents have their own cars. Each resident has their own room, and they also have rooms for husbands and wives. They provide different rooms for different types of budgets. They have a suite that has a bedroom, a living room, and a little kitchen area. My mom is in one room that has a little refrigerator.

My mother-in-law moves in The Waterford at Thousand Oaks. We like it primarily because it is close to the residence of her children. It is convenient for the family. The facility is clean and bright. The services seem to be comprehensive. The price is right, and you do not make a long-term commitment.

They have various activities. They make postcards. They have an exercise group, and they go out to lunch sometimes. Her room is spacious.

I visited The Waterford. It was clean. I liked it better, but it was too far away.

The Waterford looked like a nice place. I talked to some residents there, and they liked it. It’s independent living, but they do have some facilities for assisted as needed. It has a nice feel. It’s clean and friendly. Mom is in a smaller studio. They did have better options, but that was what she needed. That has her own room with a separate bathroom and a little kitchenette. They serve food, and it’s actually very good. I’ve eaten there a few times myself. They have something going on every day.

I had been out to The Waterford several times. It was a very nice place. I liked it and the apartments were really nice. The staff was helpful and friendly. The food was very good. I liked the amount of activities they had because there were a lot of things to choose from. There was something to do every day out there. They had parties all the time for various occasion and I had been invited to all their events. They brought a lot of outside people for entertainment.However, the community was not familiar with me at all because I lived in the opposite direction. I would not consider living there because it was too far from where I lived. I don't know the area and I don't think I would be comfortable out there.
