Independent Living Reviews for The Gardens At Arkanshire

November 30, 2019

By Linda543


Over a year ago last July, my mom signed a 3 month contract to move to Arkanshire, then decided not to move in. She paid for the first two months per the contract, then Norm the director said that the 3rd month would be taken out of her community fee that she paid up front. He stated that the remaining amount would be refunded to her, about a $1,000. After stopping by to speak with Norm and many phone calls to obtain the remaining amount, there has been no check sent for the remaining amount. Norm said that he would look into it and talk to the accountant, but nothing has happened. That has been our experience with Arkanshire.

We went to the Gardens at Arkanshire, and it's very nice. The apartments are really nice, and it felt more like living in an apartment than a retirement home. They have a salon, an exercise room, and a really nice dining area. It's a really laid back place, it's inviting, and it's well-maintained. Everybody working there was nice.

The Gardens was beautiful, but it was way too expensive for what she could be accustomed to, and that she could handle. It was more like a resort and more formal, very large. They even had cottages all the way to studios. They had separate stand alone cottages, and the people were amazing. The residents and the staff. They treated us to lunch, the food was amazing, and there were snacks available. It was very high end.

The Gardens at Arkanshire was nice, and the grounds were beautiful, but we didn’t want to live in Springfield.

The staff at The Gardens at Arkanshire was very helpful. They answered as many questions as they could and did an awesome job, but it just wasn't right for the situation that was happening with my grandmother. I also liked the rooms, and I would recommend them. I didn't have any problems with them. The dining area was nice and very clean. They made sure that everything was served in a clean and friendly environment. They had a lot of activities, too.

I have been living in The Gardens at Arkanshire for quite some time now. I initially chose this place because it is closer to the VA. This place is all pretty good. It is well maintained and well kept. The staff here is very helpful too. The staff takes care of their senior residents. I am in a studio apartment that has a bathroom and kitchenette in it. They also have a new chef, who has improved the quality of food. He cooks our food three times a day. We have a common dining room, and it is elegant. We have social recreations, like bingo and all other stuff. So far, everything has been great with this community.

My mother-in-law is doing fine. She lives in The Gardens at Arkanshire, a mile from our house. We like it because she believes that this is what is best for her, and that is the most important thing. It allowed us to know that she was going to be able to be comfortable and relaxed while living there. She has an assistant she pays to shower and do some laundry. The facility does all her meals and activities. They play some games together. They have cards, music and some educational things. Her daughter takes her out shopping when she wants to go. If she needs to see her doctor, she makes an appointment, and then we transport her.

What I liked about The Gardens at Arkanshire was they had two-bedroom cottages rather than just apartments. That appealed to us very much. We do a lot of travelling, and we also liked it because they had a program that when we are travelling, we can stay at any of their places for no charge as long as there is a vacancy. The cost was kind of high, but they had full kitchens, and we do not have to take their meal plans. They had a library.

We are probably going to The Gardens at Arkanshire. My impression about it was very favorable. The staff seemed very friendly and helpful. We looked into some of their activities, and they have bingo, a game called Sparkle that I have never played before, and they have bridge which is very interesting to me. They have studio apartments as well as one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. They also have one-bedroom and two-bedroom cottages, which are kind of remotely located. We stayed in a two-bedroom cottage, and we liked it very much.
