No security cameras when my parents were staying there. My parents did not feel safe while staying there. Also, if you need any kids nd of assistance this service costs a lot.

Rock Spring was a beautiful place, but it was just too expensive for me. It was like a hotel. From what I saw and from what was said to me, they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and then they can get snacks all day if they choose to. They had maid service and laundry service. Parking is secure and close to whatever building they chose to live in. The rooms are like hotel rooms -- huge and gorgeous. The bathrooms are of nice size and accommodating for those who can't lift their legs. Everything is just made for seniors. They had activities and events, and the staff seemed really diverse.

We had a very nice visit at Rock Spring. We had lunch, and it was very good. They had games, crafts, music, outings, and barbecues.

I visited Rock Spring. It's very nice, but it's more assisted living and whatever other type of assistance you need, you have to hire from an outside source. Their rooms are very, very nice and reasonably priced as well. I was not able to eat there, but their dining room is very nice.

I liked Rock Spring. Some of the activities surprised us, like tabletop shuffle board, that my mother seemed to enjoy. They also had card games, outings twice a week, and movies. They had three or four different apartments. There were people on-site that you could hire to do different things for you, like laundry. The staff was flexible, very personable, and knew all of their residents. The residents were all smiling and happy. Out of the facilities we've seen, this would be where my mom would go.

The staff at Rock Spring is very pleasant and very helpful. I would love to live there myself. They have three meals a day and the food is absolutely terrific. They have a lot of activities for seniors, like exercise groups that meet regularly, billiards, and arts and crafts. They have excursions and go out to have golfing and putting contests. The rooms and the entire facility are very clean.

I did have lunch at Rock Spring, and it was very good. It was a very nice facility. It is actually beautiful because it is new. They have fresher home-made breads that they would have everyday and things that kind of appeal to older people many times because they feel like they are being catered to, so that was really nice. The room also was very nice.

The staff was very helpful and friendly at Rock Spring. They made us feel at home. They showed us the room, and it was very clean. They offered us lunch, and the food was good. They gave me a brochure with activities that are planned for the seniors, and that was nice. If I had to live in a place, this would be one of my top contenders.

Rock Spring is top drawer. It’s just that it’s too expensive, and it’s so far away. It was a wonderful place. It was so clean, and the staff treated me really nicely.

Early September I did find a place and moved in, and it is Rock Spring. It’s a new facility, and it has very upbeat managers. It’s a healthy morale building kind of situation. They offer activities every hour; one of them is an exercise program for elderly. They have a wonderful library; the facility is wonderfully kept, and that is the key feature when I came to see it. The food is top notch; we have a chef and professionally prepared soup -- better than I have living alone. There is one big dining room that fit more of a dormitory dining facility. We have a lot of selections for the food; they are main trays, alternate trays, and then several individual things to choose from if you so desire. It’s located in a very upscale residential area. I have miles of miles of sidewalk to walk my dog on. It’s clean and modern. I have been here since early September, and maybe 10 years from now I may see something differently, but right now I am happy. I would recommend the facility, and they have a variety of offerings; you could have one bedroom unit, two bedroom two bath unit, and they have also have cottages. It is very homey.

I thought Rock Spring was wonderful. The formal dining room is excellent, and the food is good. They have a lot of activities and amenities. They’re a very active community. You can sign up to go to places, and they have a bus that can take you there. Most everybody is ambulatory. There’s one or two in wheelchairs but the seniors that are there are there to have a good time. The staff is interactive with them. The décor is very nice on the outside. The rooms are great. You get to do what you want for your apartment. What impressed me is their apartments in their size and space like you’re not all cramped in there. Rock Spring was more reasonable to me. It started off at $2500, but that is if you’re more of an independent person.

It looks very nice and sunny, but my experience for my parents is not sunny. All that glitters is definitely not gold here. The security is nonexistent. No security cameras. On one occasion, someone entered my parents' apartment because he was given the wrong apartment number by the co-manager. The co-manager apologized, but it demonstrates a laxness. On another occasion, someone tried to enter into my parents' apartment at 11PM. The only reason my parents knew was because they had put an alarm on the door. A manager was called when this happened, and he said that he could see no one in the halls - thereby dismissing my parents' complaint. The manager then cautioned residents the next day that they have to keep their doors locked. Rock Springs definitely needs security cameras, because then they could see, and prove, what actually happened at 11PM. Understandably, my parents could not stay there after this incident, because they felt too fearful. Also, there is a lot of gossip in this place. The managers told me it can take 3 months for a resident to feel comfortable - and some never do. I personally talked to several people who were very sad to be here. Oh, I did take inventory of the things I moved into my parents apartment, and compared it to the inventory of what was there to be moved out when they left. And there were definitely things missing - an expensive radio, a watch, a dictionary. Consider that the following employees all have keys: managers, housekeeping, maintenance. And do read the contract over carefully. It is very ambiguous in places - they have a legal staff, so this must be purposeful in their favor. There is no screening process whatsoever to get into Rock Spring as far as residents' medical condition - thus there are healthy people clear of mind and able to live independently mixed with people who have various stages of memory loss, including Alzheimer's. And you have to mix; the only way to get your food is through communal dining, and the activities are mixed as well. And there is no oversight for inappropriate behaviors that may occur. And unhappy residents I spoke with are afraid to complain because they feel so isolated and afraid.

My grandmother is in Rock Spring Independent Senior Living Community. It is beautiful, clean and in a very comfortable location. There seemed to be plenty of staff to go around for the residents. They're also very helpful and attentive. The food they serve there is good but sometimes it's bland. Maybe because they had to cook for so many people, but then again it's for their residents and it's suitable for what it is. As far as maybe the housekeeping, they could do some improving, just be more thorough.

The facilities at Rock Spring where great! Everyone there from the staff to the visitors were all incredibly nice people. I visited the facility when I had to do some volunteer work for a school project. A bunch of us students had a blast interacting with the elderly. They really seemed to enjoy our company. Some of them had told us that it had been a very long time since a family member visited them, so any visitor were treated very nicely. We then had lunch together with the people living there and it was a blast! The people there had some many stories to tell us while we eat delicious food. I haven't visited the community again, because I've seen gotten a job and been too busy. A couple of my friends still visit the retirement community regularly, though, and they say that the people there are just as cheerful as ever.

I visited this facility. It is beautiful. and. clean. It has many important amenities. The drawback is that I perceived budget. Sometimes overruled independence.
