Independent Living Reviews for Westgate Village

Westgate Village is easy to move around. It's all in one building, and their units are really spacious. The staff seems to be friendly, and they even said to me that being two years away from being 55 myself, and a person with a physical disability, they could get me in with my mom if we choose to relocate there. The model unit they showed us can fit a queen size bed, and it had a nicely open kitchen. Under normal times, it's big enough for a few visitors. They also have your cable TV hooked up, your internet included. It was very homey and the receptionist was very helpful. During these times, they were making food packages for the residents. They have a big spacious dining room and even though they are social distancing right now, they had four tables put together so that a group of four people could eat together. They sent me home with some food from that dining room too and it was very good. They have games and a fitness center. They do shopping and can take you to doctors' appointments.

Westgate Village is great. My parents are in quarantine for the first two weeks, so there's not much going on obviously right now, but the people are great, and everything's been good. The food is good and well-rounded, much better than the situation they have been in previously, as to options and quality. The facilities are great, but we haven't been able to utilize them. It's shut down, but they've got lots of great options. It's great as far as the cleanliness, how it's taken care of and maintained, and the options that are available when they can get out of the apartment.

Westgate Village was in a quite busy area with stores and restaurants. The football stadium and the hockey arena are right there. The staff seemed very nice. The dining room was open and there were people around. The apartments were quite nice. I looked at three different rooms, and they have a studio. The 1-bedroom seemed small to me but they're bright and nice. They have a nice program that was called "Snowbirds". You can go down and get an apartment for a minimum of three months, for how many months you want during the winter, and not all year round. The staff were very friendly. I happen to like trees and they did not have any. They have grass but they did not have trees, there's a lot of sunshine. I would want to see more green around it.

I've been staying in Westgate Village and it's been very good. The food is excellent and they have a full-time chef. The staff is very good, kind, and efficient. My room is great, it's very, very nice. It's all very good, and I'm really happy here. I highly recommend it. I haven't participated in any activities yet because I'm still in quarantine. It's definitely very worthwhile. This happened to be the first place I visited and it was everything I could expect, so I really didn't bother to look at other places anymore.

My mom is now at Westgate Village. So far, it's wonderful. It's absolutely wonderful. She has only been there a little while, but the whole thing has been great. The staff is extremely welcoming and accommodating. The facility is beautiful. There's nothing there that we don't like so far. The rooms are beautiful. They're really, really good, just perfectly set up for an older person. My mom is actually in a studio apartment. She is pretty picky with the food, but so far she has had good thing to say about it. As far as I remember, they're having her quarantined for two weeks before she is allowed to participate in anything. They have bingo and painting. They have a little movie theater room.

I went to Westgate Village. My friend and I went into the facility. We arranged to have it in-person. It was a very positive tour. The staff was very friendly. The person who contacted me had great communication skills. Also communicating right away and following up, they have been outstanding in that regard. The facility itself is beautiful. It's very upgraded, so it's really a nice facility. It's also newer because it is only two years old. The room is very nice. It's upgraded with granite counter tops and stainless steel. The facility is very bright and open. The rooms are terrific. They're nice sizes. We saw different layouts. They're very willing to work with what was in the room and with adjusting closets. With the COVID, they were very good about separating. They were bringing snacks to the rooms throughout the day, and the snacks really looked good. That was really nice. I wouldn't mind being in that place. It's great.

I chose Westgate Village for my friend because of convenience, the price, and amenities. It's an awesome place. If I was retiring, I would move there personally. The staff is very helpful, knowledgeable, and very professional. They've got a heated pool, lots of entertainment, outings, trips to the doctors, three meals a day plus two snacks. We ate there the first day, they served me as well, and the food was very good. Once she is out of quarantine, she'll be able to do a lot and play her music because she's a musician, so she's very happy about that. It's very easy for the elderly to get around because of wide hallways, and they use their scooters on-site. It's really nice for elderly people. I've spoken to many, but this one stuck out my friend's eyes, so I went that way. It's a love at first sight for her. She was very happy with that.

Westgate Village was brand new and very nice. The person during the visit was delightful. It seemed a very good place to stay. I'm concerned of the low occupancy rate after a year, which surprises me considering it's such a lovely place. I was also concerned that because they're new, they don't have such a well-developed entertainment activities agenda. They didn't have a woodworking area or craft classes or meetings set up, which is my husband's and my interest. It didn't seem to have as many organized adventures out. It had independent living only, which was a concern for us as well. They had a bistro and a lovely dining room and the menu looked great. It's a Holiday retirement and you could stay at a whole load of different Holiday places in the United States, and they give you the opportunity to stay there for a week for free.

Westgate Village was very nice, but the apartments were all inside one building and you'd have to park in the parking lot and then walk down a long hallway to your apartment. They had a library, a heated pool, and a workout room. The staff was very nice and very informative. The location was great because it was very close to family and Westgate Shopping Center was really close.

Westgate Village is a brand-new facility with very few residents. It's high quality construction. The front office people were helpful and professional. There are contracted providers that you can work with. It's strictly independent living. It was very nicely done, but the rooms were a little smaller than the other places we visited. They have a gym, an eating area, they serve three meals a day, there's a beauty shop, recreation room, group activities, and transportation locally. The accommodations were like apartments.

My wife and I toured the facility. It appears to be an exceptional facility. It is a new place and seems to be a grand place for independent living.

Westgate Village is brand new so it was very beautiful, airy, and spacious. There weren't very many people living there yet when I visited. There were quite a few amenities and activities to choose from, and most of them were close by, including the casino. Even painting is offered, which I thought was very nice. They also have puzzles, reading, a library, and music. It was interesting. The room they showed me was way too small. The kitchen has a space where you can put bar stools in lieu of a dining table because the living room isn't big enough to accommodate even a small dining table. The staff member who showed me around was friendly, but seemed a little bit nervous the whole time. The food itself was fairly good but wasn’t topnotch.

Westgate Village's employees are very friendly. The place is very clean and professional. It was very nice, and they were popping popcorn when I was there so it smelled good in the air. It's just beautiful and very good. Everything that I saw that I wanted to do, they had. They have a game room, movies, a gym, spa, a hair salon, and transportation, which is a big thing for me.
