SG: "The rooms were a little bit bigger in Addington Place at College Harbor and icluded a kitchenette with a stove. I thought the place was very nice and had an upscale setting, although it's not as new as the other place we saw. The staff was very nice, helpful and accommodating in showing us everything. They have a calendar of activities, have people come in, and also have a shuttle to take the residents to the store. The day we were there, they were setting up a big screen fo... (read more)

Debbie: "We chose Brookdale Bay Pines for my father. It was convenient since they're across the street from the VA hospital, as well as centrally located from both my brother and me. I like the place, the amenities, the setup, and the people who work there. I like the room size, and the view of the courtyard he has from his room's bay window. It's a large room with a large bathroom. I liked how the facility is one big circle, so they can't get lost, and his room is not far from the d... (read more)

Bloom at St. Petersburg

6775 40th Avenue North, Saint Petersburg, FL
7 reviews
Cathy: "Bloom at St. Petersburg didn't know I was coming, so the chef gave me the tour. He was very nice and really good. There was no one else to give me the tour. It wasn't that clean, but it was a nice facility. It was a little cheaper, but it was not a place I wanted my mom to go. The dining area was clean, but kind of drab looking. I liked that it was gated and that it wasn't in a bad neighborhood either."

CaringReviewer141033: "Arbor Oaks is on the small side, which is nice because you won't have a lot of walking to do. It looked very clean, quiet, and serene. There are lovely areas outside to walk around or sit in. I would have moved in there, but I couldn't afford it. They have a time table of buses or cars to pick them up every week, and take them shopping at local shops. They have outings, and concerts in the amphitheater during winter time. They serve three meals a day. The dining room looked ... (read more)
