Assisted Living Reviews for Legacy House of Avondale

January 19, 2021

By Grady

I visited this facility

I actually went out and had a virtual tour and an in-person tour of Legacy House of Avondale. However, the staff said that the assisted living would not be what my mom needs. They'll probably assess her and they'll probably move her to memory care and that's where the price jumped from $2300 minimum to $5300 minimum. My overall experience of it was very good. I like the place; I just can't afford it. I think it's in a very nice location. From what I saw, it's very good. The memory care unit only has 42 people total that they let in there. Right now, there are 24 people so it's not that bad of a deal. It's a wonderful place and it's convenient for me, but it's not affordable. Everybody has his/her individual room. They have cable in the room. They have a nice courtyard for visiting, they have nice big open spaces for all the people to sit around, and they have daily activities for everybody. There were some residents doing puzzles or some were just sitting around talking to each other. I really like the place. I wish it was affordable for my mom. I think she'll be happy there. The rooms were nice size and bright. My mom would have an in-room bathroom. It was just like a little studio apartment. I met the director who was there for the weekend, I met the receptionist and I met a couple of the nurses just walking by. They seemed friendly. The staff was very honest with us, and he wasn't sugar-coating anything. The place seemed like a new facility. It was very clean, very nice, very open, and airy.

Thank you Grady for your kind review. It was a pleasure to meet with you and to hear how you have been caring for your mother. We are glad you noticed that our residents were engaged in activities and especially happy to hear that you were able to meet and talk with several of our associates during your tour. Finding the right care is so important and we know price is definitely an important factor in ones search. We would love to talk with you again Grady. We work closely with programs, like VA Aid & Attendance and others, that may provide financial help. Thank you again for your review.

I went to Legacy House. I'm looking at, and I like it, but I don't know whether I can do the money off of it. So that's worrying me right now. Very, very nice, and the rooms were nice, the people are nice in there, and it's very extremely clean. They've got nice social rooms, game rooms and stuff. I would recommend the Legacy House except for the fact that it's very expensive, and maybe it's just that because I'm just looking at these now, but I realized that its's that expensive, you've gotta have some money to be able to live there. It's $5300 a month, they want a $200 deposit that's not refundable. I'm like, I don't know whether I can come up with this or not, I'm working on it, and I'm trying to see.

Dear Cheryl Thank you for your review. We enjoyed our recent visit with you and we are pleased to hear that you felt our community may be a good fit. You are right, price is a very important factor when deciding on a senior living community. Our memory care community monthly fee is $5300. Our assisted living community has a variety of apartment floor plans to choose from, including studios and 1B units, starting at $2100. We want to help find what will best fit your needs and budget. We would love the opportunity to talk with you again soon Cheryl. Thank you again for your kind review.

Legacy House of Avondale was very nice, the people seemed professional, and it was a well-constructed facility. It was just a bit out of our price range. It's in a good location. It opened recently so there weren't a lot of people around. The rooms were pretty standard with small kitchens. The dining area was nice, but it was generic as well. They have a beauty shop and transportation. Their marketing and front office people were very professional and friendly. It was professionally done and everything was good quality.
