Independent Living Reviews for Columbus Estates

June 29, 2015

I visited this facility

The facility and the staff were very nice. They were helpful and toured me all around. The rooms seemed adequate, clean, and up-to-date. Their dining room was set up well. They had a variety of activities, and the residents I spoke to enjoyed them. My mother is still driving, and Columbus Estates is on a little hilly area which has a nice view, but she would have a tough time walking to her car, which was down from the entrance. If she was able to walk pretty well, it wouldn't be a problem, but for her, she has to do it on a walker going downhill. The staff and others could help her, but doing it by herself would be unsafe.

My mom has only been in Columbus Estates a little while, and the people have been very good and friendly so far. What I’ve seen so far I would recommend. All the residents are friendly and very happy there, so I think we made a good choice. I’ve eaten there twice -- very good food. She has played bingo, and they play older music records or CDs. They have lot of activities for seniors, and we’re very happy so far. The family can stay with my mom, and another thing is, whatever care you need you can get it. It’s independent living, but if you need bathing or somebody to help with getting out of bed they can provide it. You don’t have to go into assisted living if you don’t need total assisted living.

I did go to Columbus Estates and this is a really nice facility; very clean, and really elegant. The staff treats you really nice. It’s very sophisticated. Everything in it is immaculate, elegant, and very nice.

I visited this facility

This is a first rate facility. Everything I saw was excellent---from the individual rooms, to the dining room, to the auxiliary and support services; all was of the highest quality. A resort atmosphere prevailed; the residents were happy, active and friendly; interacting with visitors and staff in a relaxed, gregarious manner. Every amenity is furnished at a very reasonable price. I researched in behalf of a friend, but when the time comes, I would be very comfortable living here.

Columbus Estates has a hill and I'm a little afraid of going up there. I got my own vehicle but I'm usually a walker. So if it rains, I have to walk up that steep hill and that's not safe for me.
Provider Response
Hi Peggy, we completely understand that a hill could cause some concern. We appreciate you considering us in your search for senior living!

I have my friend placed in Columbus Estates. It is our choice because it's good price, it's very nice looking and it's close to my home. The facility itself is very well-maintained. The staff there is very nice. They're very professional. My friend moved in around the middle of August. We included add-on services for more care for her so that she has what she needs. She also has a nice full apartment. I would recommend this place to others. The food was great the week I took her there to visit; however, on the second week of her stay, the food has been gross. She eats it but it is not very appetizing. They're trying to make it senior-friendly, so it's really soft and it's like overcooked actually. They could improve on their food.
