Assisted Living Reviews for Gordon Oaks Senior Living Community

February 13, 2018

By William Winter Olympics

I am/was a resident of this facility

I have looked at a lot of other places in Mobile and Baldwin counties in Alabama all the way to Gulf Shores, Alabama and even the panhandle of coastal Florida and coastal Mississippi... nothing beats Gordon Oaks Assisted Living Community for the value per dollar spent. Amy is wonderful and Miss Linda. The food is delicious and the hairdresser is always bringing her home made treats to share. I get a haircut every two weeks for $10.00. One of the staff A J, is appearing on the voice Valentine's day. The only bad about this place is that one or two of the residents are jerks but I just avoid them. At least the staff are nice, very kind, and attentive.

Gordon Oaks is OK. We like it. My relative has nurses who come in and out and check on her always. She has a studio apartment with a bed, a little kitchen, sofa, table, and basics that other studio apartments have. They have an exercise room, activity room, and a salon where she can get her hair combed and washed.

Provider Response

Hi KL, Thank you for your comments. We are happy that your loved one has chosen to call Gordon Oaks "home"! We just adore our Gordon Oaks family! We are here to assist in anyway always!

I visited this facility

I visited Gordon Oaks a couple of years ago, and it was a mess. It looked OK from the outside, but if you walk inside, everything was torn up. They showed me several apartments, and they had redone one for somebody to move in. That was the only one they had fixed up. None of the other ones they showed me had carpet, or were refurbished or had new appliances, and had stuff hanging off their walls. It was a mess.

Provider Response

Dear Elizabeth003715, We apologize for the experience you had when visiting our community a few years ago. We would love to have you stop by and see one of our remodeled apartments!

When we decided that our grandmother would be going into an assisted living facility and back grounding many facilities, The Gordon Oaks Convalescent Center, was the last one on the list my family and I had to visit.We first walked inside the atrium, I fell in love with the layout and the view the facility had, before our eyes. We were greeted immediately with smiles and complimentary beverages. We were asked, kindly to be seated, while our tour guide becomes available. Our wait was no longer than five minutes, again greeted with warm smiles upon the tour guides arrival. The particular rooms/apartments as they like to call them, that we were showed were extremely spacious and had everything possible for a person of my grandmother's age to be able to feel active and Independent.Finally, when I took my grandmother to see it, she fell in love with it as well, and decided that would be her new home.
