Assisted Living Reviews for Danberry at Inverness

October 10, 2019

By 5 year resident

I am/was a resident of this facility

We had looked at two other senior living communities before visiting Danberry. We immediately knew this was the one for us. We have lived here for 5 years. The staff is very good and they have very few turnover with the senior staff. The staff is super friendly, the interior and grounds are immaculately kept. Our apartment is exactly what we need and we love our deck. We have made many new friends. Moving to Danberry was the best decision we made.

Danberry was very nice. I liked the actually setting. It had a great big area inside when you walk in. They had like a bar and restaurant right there. It had more of a country club feel. However, the apartment is on the smaller size. It had a very nice atmosphere.

I have a friend who has an aunt that lived at Danberry, and she's happy there. It's beautiful, and the food is good. They do what their site says.

Danberry was very nice and very new, but it was also very expensive. They had everything. We liked it because the memory care had its own entrance. They had a courtyard there too. The main lobby was humongous. The building was brand new. It was very nice and very pretty. However, they did not seem to have much activities going on as the other place.

Danberry At Inverness was beautiful and top-of-the-line, but it's expensive. Memory care is quite expensive. From independent up to memory care, it's wonderful. The staff who gave us the tour was very good, and she did a great job. They have a pool, and they have a place where the independent people could go down at night and have a cocktail or glass of wine if they wanted to. It's just absolutely beautiful -- very quiet, serene, and nice -- and you couldn't ask for a nicer place, but you had to be able to afford it.

Recently my aunt for whom I am Power of Attorney moved into Danberry at Inverness, Hoover, AL. Birmingham is her birthplace and she has family and friends that visit often. The facility is clean, staff is helpful, receptive, and knowledgeable. The other residents are very nice. The amenities for Danberry are top notch, really it is more like a mountain retreat than a place for old folks! Pricey, but worth every penny!

I’m in Danberry (Danberry at Inverness). It’s a very nice, beautiful place, but the food could be better. I would like to be back in Atlanta, but Danberry is a nice home away from home. It has beautiful trees and an abundance of flowers. In the entertainment department, I would like to see more things to entertain me like playing cards and different kinds of card games.

My mom was put into Danberry At Inverness. I was impressed with the employees, the cleanliness, and their care for the residents. The staff was very good. The rooms were very nice. I have eaten there and it was very good. They did have singing, exercise, bowling, and bingo. They did have all sorts of things.

The only placed I went was Danberry, and it was very nice. My parents were there, but they wanted to come home so they went home. However, it was a good experience. It was one of the nicest that I had ever been in. I liked the way the rooms were set up. I liked the staff. It didn't have the appearance of a nursing home/assisted living atmosphere. They had a lot of programs for the seniors to do. They had exercise, swimming, and card playing.

Danberry at Inverness was a gorgeous facility. It was really classy. When you walk in, it was like you're walking into the Ritz Carlton, and then if you look over to your left, there was an indoor pool. It was a great place. They are always filled-up; there is hardly any vacancy. They have buses that will take the ladies to get their hair done or go to doctor's appointments, to Walmart, or just go shopping. These were all-included; the only catch was that it has to be within 30 miles, which was easy because most of the hospitals and doctor's offices were close by. If it was farther away, they would have to charge you probably like $15 extra. They get three meals a day, and if you were sick and you were in your room, you just call them and tell them downstairs that you don't feel good, and they will bring your meals to you. Everyday at 4:30, except Sunday, you can go down and mingle with the other residents and have a glass of wine and socialize.

Danberry At Inverness is a gorgeous facility. It's beautiful and clean, and the people there were nice, but they just weren't as warm and friendly. The only thing that kept me from choosing this place is that the only room they had available was smaller than what I wanted. I know they do have activities, but I really don’t know what they are because I was just there for an hour visit.

I like Danberry very much. I came to live here January this year. So far, I have no complaints. The staff is very courteous. They do their job very well too. I also find the place clean and well kept. Their food is excellent. I play bingo with the residents. They have a wonderful library which is a good thing because I love to read.

Danberry is only about five years old. So, everything is up-to-date, all electronics and all security things are brand new. The building is outstanding. The grounds are well kept and lovely. What I was noticing as I was going around was that they are staffed to do the job. In other words, there is a man in-charge of maintenance and he has a crew of people who get things done. They have a leader of the maid service and enough people to do their job. I go run around looking at the place just to see about dining and you can go back three weeks later, the same people are there. It is just organized. It looks to me to be a successful operation and it's hard to be successful. Some of the employees are not all that heavily paid. I use to have a bunch of stores in malls and it drove me nuts to try to keep everything going. So, I watch and I say: "This place was organized" The management that they have seem to be good. If you have a problem and you try to address yourself to it, they seem willing to try to hear what it is and see if there is a way to fix it and that's what it is all about. I've been here for two years and the main thing is the sense of community; the quality of staff and how they perform. If you have been active all your life and busy running stuff, then all of a sudden you are sitting here watching television, you just have to learn to adjust on how to be a senior citizen in a senior retirement home. I think these people seem to have an understanding of that and are earnestly trying to make your life pleasant. We play bridge and poker. We have some boxes built up out back where I have some tomatoes grow and I have some fresh tomatoes yesterday from my tomato plants. This place is aces!

Danberry was five minutes from my brother. It was a fairly new and fully staffed facility. It was at full resident capacity. It was extremely well maintained and nice, and only $39 a month more for all inclusive services from what we were paying for in the facility mom was at. We felt like it was a better value. The staff was supremely fabulous. They had physical therapy staff. The rooms were more spacious than most, and they were equipped for people in wheelchairs and walkers. It was easy to navigate, so it was good. They had a couple of different dining rooms, and their main dining room operated like a restaurant, so you could order from a menu. I haven't eaten there, but my brother did, and he was happy. They had a heated indoor pool and a gym. They had a salon with beauticians, aestheticians, and manicurist. They had garden, trails, outdoor living, and a lot of nice amenities.

We have a lot of friends at Danberry, but to me it was not as friendly. The outside is fine and they did have some nice amenities. But I did not see any direct outdoor access for my apartment.

I liked Danberry. The people there were very nice. The only reason why I didn't want to move there was because of the traffic.

I love this facility. I have visited here often with our GA girls group with the church. We visited at Christmas time to sing carols with the residents and during February for a Valentines visit as well as other times. I have also visited this facility with our girl scout troop to play games and entertain the residents with music. It is a lovely facility. The residents seem very happy and they are very social. All the rooms were unique, decorated by the residents. It was really sweet when husband and wives lived together. The residents shared pictures and drawing from their families. The residents entertained us just as much has we entertained them. The facility was also the cleanest facility that I have visited. It did not have that "smell" that is sometimes noticed in these type of facilities. It was also very spacious and the greeting and meeting areas were beautifully decorated like a 5 star hotel. I have visited many assisted living facilities and this is by far the one I would like to reside in, in my older years.

The workers here are outstanding and helpful when I need something done it gets done. From Shana at the front desk the dinning room staff Kathlyn the residents detector the guys that hang stuff for you or anything that needs done. I'm very pleased I came here even though we got quarantined 3weeks after moving in. The staff is Grwat. Even the guy in charge of the fitness room if you need a talk he will listen to you.

My parents lived at Danberry for almost seven years and loved every minute. They moved there in their late eighties and shortly after moving in, told me they wished they had done it sooner. They enjoyed a variety of activities they would never had access to in their own home such a Mah Jongg, discussion group on current activities and physical fitness classes. They enjoyed meeting friends for a cocktail or dinner in the Bistro or dining room as well as outings to local restaurants. The staff here is incredible--they go out of their way to know the residents and provide friendly personal service. I am convinced living at Danberry extended the years and happiness of my parents remaining years. I highly recommend it!

Provider Response

Gail W, thank you for your kind words and this wonderful review! We're glad to hear we delivered such a great experience. If there's anything further we can do for you, we are happy to help!

My elderly father recently moved into Danberry. We are extremely pleased. The facility and its amenities are well thought out and well maintained. My father's apartment is spacious with high end finishes. Everyone on staff has gone out of their way to help with the move and to make the transition easy for him and for us. The staff respond quickly when we have questions or needs. Moving from your own home to an independent living community is extremely stressful for an older individual. The staff at Danberry realize that and work hard to make a new resident feel comfortable in their new home.

Provider Response

We are very happy to have provided you with such a positive experience and glad your dad joined our family! If you have any further questions, please give us a call. We're always happy to help!

Danberry at Inverness was a very nice, beautiful place. They went out of their way to make sure that I took the tour and met the staff and people in charge as well as some of residents. The rooms were smaller than the room that I had, so I felt like I was going to feel really cramped. It was very nice, but I did not get to mingle with the residents.

Provider Response

Thank you for visiting our community and considering Danberry for your future. We have several floor plans to offer that vary greatly in size, some as large as 1610 square feet. Please contact us at your convenience so we can start planning for your next visit by scheduling appointments with our residents for private showings in advance that meet the specifications that are important for you. We will also be sure to give you an opportunity to get to know more of our residents so that you can hear more about the lifestyle that Danberry offers our residents daily. Thank you again for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you soon!

Danberry (Danberry at Inverness) was fantastic. It was probably the most ideal place to retire. The staff members were wonderful. The community had three levels of care - independent, assisted and memory care - so it was great for advanced aging. It was clean and offered multiple activities. The staff was friendly. Danberry would be my no. 1 choice. My in-laws have decided to stay there.

Danberry is a 5-star senior living community. The staff is very good and they have very little turnover with their senior staff. They have same people here since they opened up. I wish we came to this 2 years earlier. We’re pleased with everything. The apartment that we have is really first class. We have the garden level apartment. We have a patio area where we put camellia trees up and flowers. I’m very much involved with the activities as well. I have just been elected as a president for one of the activity communities here which work with the Executive Director. I lead the current events discussion group every Wednesday afternoon. We have a lot of different things going on here. We lived in Florida and built our house for 15 years by the beach but we’ve made more friends here in 6 months than we did in 15 years down there.

We have looked at other places and it took us a long time to decide where to go. We chose Danberry because there are a lot of things going on and the people are just so friendly. It’s the whole package just came together. We love to be at Danberry. We’ve met a lot of interesting people and made a lot of friends. We have a library there people who loves work. It’s a really great place. The dining room is really packed and the food is wonderful but sometimes it takes awhile to be served. The food is really good though. We’re part of Danberry players. We have plays and skits here. We take part on exercises and play volleyball too. We really enjoyed these activities.

Moving to Danberry at Inverness was one of the best decisions we've ever made. We really, really like it. We moved in here a little over a year ago and the apartment is exactly what we needed right now. I like the fact that we have a washer and a dryer in the condo and not down the hall. The furniture that I brought in fits nicely too. Our meal plan includes the main meal plus the continental breakfast. We can choose the main meal either in the middle of the day or in the evening and we don’t have to tell them every time. We also like the residents here too. We have met some very interesting people with different backgrounds.

The people at Danberry at Inverness have all been very pleasant. I haven’t spent more time there because my husband broke his hips two days ago before he was about to move in there and we were spending a lot of time at the hospital, but they were very cooperative. I know it's going to be a great place to live than at home and it’s the best thing we've done. They have more stimulation there with regards to mental and physical activities.

I came out to Danberry when it first opened. I looked at the houses and the apartments. Then, I moved in on September 2012. I find the place very clean. You never see it dirty. The staff come and clean my apartment every week. I have no problems with the place. All of the staff is extremely nice, young, energetic and caring. They go out of their way for the residents. I just love all of them. On the other hand, the food is an up and down thing. I mean it is institutional food, sometimes good and sometimes not. We have had good chefs and bad ones. Right now, we have a good one but the one before him was terrible. They also have activities that people enjoy. However, I kind of do my own thing. Overall, my experience here is very good.

I will greatly encouraged anyone who is looking for a retirement community to totally consider moving to Danberry. The staff here is as wonderful as the residents. They go out of their way to do whatever they can to help and assist the residents. I love a lot of things they do here such as shoot games and pool. I also love the exercise room where I work out. When I first got here, the food was really good. For whatever reason, it kind of tapered a little bit. Then they had this new chef and the food slowly picked back up. Basically, I just love getting to know other people and eating lunch and dinner with others. I've been living here since March 2012. I couldn't have been in a better place.
