Assisted Living Reviews for Freedom Village

The independent living side of Freedom Village was very nice. However, once you move downstairs to assisted living, it was very dark, very cold, and depressing. The dining area was also smaller.

Provider Response

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your visit to Freedom Village. When considering a Continuing Care Retirement Community it is important to look at all levels of care because the significance of a CCRC is that you can move through the next levels of care as your needs change. We understand that sometimes it may be difficult to envision what life would be like for someone who needs significant assistance with their daily living activities. Our boutique style Health Care Center was designed to offer a non-threatening environment for our residents who require support. I’m glad that you noticed our intimate dining room as it provides our residents who may get overwhelmed in a large dining hall a smaller environment for noise reduction and support by one of our trained Resident Care Ambassadors. Next time you visit, I invite you to spend some time with one of our Directors so we can explain to you the importance of the way our community was designed. We appreciate your feedback as we always strive to improve our residents quality of life.

We were very impressed with Freedom Village. It was the nicest facility but a little more expensive, and we just didn’t have that budget. They offered three levels of service from independent living to skilled nursing, which at that time would have been helpful since I was looking for both of my in-laws who had varying needs. The people were great and very helpful, but it was expensive. They had a lot of options, but we were not able to make that move.

Provider Response

Thank you for visiting Freedom Village. We are excited that you were impressed with our community and found value in the levels of care that Freedom Village offers. It can be difficult to compare Retirement Community pricing because each community offers a different financial model. Did you know that a huge benefit of partnering with Freedom Village is our guarantee of care for life? We have found that seniors find it difficult to budget for long term care however our guarantee provides peace of mind knowing that we share the risk of your future long-term care costs. Our knowledgeable Retirement Counselors are able to help you evaluate your unique situation. I invite you to come back to learn more so you can compare the value of Freedom Village against some of your other options.

I like freedom Village; I have a lot of friends there. I was very impressed, and I thought it was very nice, clean, and neat. The people were very friendly. My friend loves it there. They have a lot of activities, they are listed on the board, and they're very active. They're very good with transportation if you want to go the doctor or need to go someplace.

My mother likes Freedom Village a lot. They have a buy-in program -- not a month-to-month where you need to come up with several hundred dollars to move in -- so that put it out of range. It had a lot of activities and an active shuttle that took the residents around on a regular basis, and the location was good. Although the rooms were smaller, they were very nicely-appointed.

Everything at Freedom Village is fine except that some of the cost is high. The person who assisted me was knowledgeable, and we saved all the information we needed. The dining area was fine and very good. The place is very nice, and the room is very nice.

Provider Response

Thank you for considering Freedom Village Assisted Living. We are excited that you thought our community was nice because we take a lot of time to ensure that we exceed expectations when families come to tour Freedom Village. In addition to our wonderful dining room and activities, we also provide exceptional care for people who need assistance with daily living activities. Our monthly fee is all inclusive of care. When you start to figure care costs for someone in need of higher level of care, many people find that our monthly fee is extremely affordable. Other assisted living facilities usually have a base price for room and food; care costs are separate. It is hard to compare pricing when every assisted living is priced differently. Here is a tip: Ask for maximum care costs. Freedom Village has the lowest maximum care cost in the area. We invite you to come back an visit so we can help save your family money in the long run. We look forward to being able to help you further.

Freedom Village Health Center is an amazing facility. I have been here for seven weeks and the thoughtful, kind and patient employees here have made a difficult situation as pleasant as it could be under the circumstances. Aside from my personal care, I am so impressed with the care and attention that all of the residents are receiving. With that in mind, I have already recommended this facility to a friend who came here after surgery and was very happy with the care that she received. The place is clean, the meals are well thought out and tasty, the rooms are good sized and pleasant and most importantly, they do not smell. That along with the caring and responsible caregivers makes this a safe and pleasant place to be.

Freedom Village was quite nice inside. Its major drawback is it’s an older community and it doesn’t have a very good location. It has a nice interior but relatively unsavory neighborhood. It has high traffic and probably noisier than others. But the rooms were quite nice, the dining area was fine and the meal was pretty good.

We were impressed by the independent living at Freedom Village because it looked very nice. The assisted living was in a separate building and was depressing. The independent building had a pool and a courtyard, which is ideal and really good. It’s a buy-in, so I don’t think my parents will qualify. We went one afternoon and saw the independent side, and then we went back to see the health center which has the assisted living and the skilled nursing. The only problem is it’s in a separate building and that didn’t appeal to us. We could hire help to come in or whoever would need the assistance could go over to the assisted living thing, but then we’d be separated, and we didn’t like that. There are little studios in the assisted living section. The staff was very nice and very pleasant. When we first went in, we didn’t have an appointment, so the receptionist asked one of the residents to show us around. It was really nice to talk to someone who lived there because she was very enthusiastic. We had a really nice tour the first time because we not only had a resident, but then we had one of the marketing personnel, also. The second time, we went to the assisted living side, and the staff was fine. The assisted living facilities didn’t appeal to me.

Hello! I truly enjoyed meeting you and your parents when you were here visiting Freedom Village. We are pleased to hear that you experienced the warmth of our staff during your visits. We find that residents in our boutique Assisted Living benefit from a more intimate environment – in which dining and life enriching programs are closer to their private suites – and generally more convenient. Please let us know if we can assist you by recommending a few places that might better suit your specific needs. We wish you and your parents the best of luck in your search!

I really liked Freedom Village, but the buy-in was way too high for my parents to afford. The rooms were beautiful, roomy, and well kept. It’s really a beautiful place. The staff were nice and friendly.

My mom is in Freedom Village. The food is absolutely outstanding. There are four choices in every meal. The nurses and the caregivers are outstanding. They are doing a very good job. The facility provides transportation to doctor’s appointments.

We went to Freedom Village, and it’s a little different as you have buy-in upfront. It seemed very nice, and the location was good too. The dining room is spacious, we ate there, and all seemed good. It’s a nice, secure area.

My mother is currently in a facility where she has been in for a year. She is at Freedom Village. I have been very happy with the staff. They do a great job. They're very warm and caring. However, my mother has improved so much in her health and so, I wanted to have a facility where she has a little bit more flexibility to go outside on her own and things like that. Since Freedom Village is more enclosed and they have a number of people who are a little more of the wanderers with dementia, my mother can't go outside unless someone takes her outside. They do have senior living but she is in the assisted living, which is a different part of the complex. The facility itself, I probably would rate maybe a 3 or 4, primarily because of the way it is set up. However, as far as the people there, it is definitely a 5. They have done a really good job.

Wow! As soon as we walked in, we could see this was a happening place. The residents we all visiting and enjoying coffee and doughnuts in the foyer. When we checked in, the nice young lady told us to go ahead and help ourselves while we waited for our tour guide. You should have seen my son's eyes light up (he's 8). He went and grabbed a doughnut and was very happy. As well, all the residents were talking, laughing, and having a great time. I immediately told my husband that this was a very happy place and could tell the residents enjoyed living there. Our tour guide was very helpful and as nice as could be. We went into a meeting room and it was there that she explained that this facility is a continuous care retirement community that you buy in to. She explained that you pay a large some of money upfront and pay a monthly rent and the amount is dependent on the size and location of the apartment. She then went on to tell us that if my mother-in-law were to run out of money, they would not evict her, but she would be able to live out the rest of her days there. This is the huge difference between a CCRC and rental facilities. We were a little caught off guard with this information because we did not read about this before we arrived. At any rate, we went ahead and toured the facility and were extremely impressed with the layout, cleanliness, and friendliness of everyone there. Everyone was just happy. We met a couple of the residents, and one lady told us it was the best decision she ever made to live there. As well, the employees we met we also very happy and energetic. Our tour guide (I don't remember her name) seemed to know everyone we passed by, which helped give a family type atmosphere. Unfortunately, this location did not work out for us because of the large up front fee and zero return. As well, this is more of an independent living facility for active seniors, providing one meal per day only. My mother-in-law is in need of more help and is not quite as energetic as the residents we saw as we walked around. However, if you have a loved one who had $115,000 plus to put down and $2500 a month, I would definitely recommend that you go and check this facility out.

We have several friends living at Freedom Village, and the nice thing about that place is that it is very, very close to our church. One of the things that we have been looking for is to stay close to the church because I was senior pastor there until I retired. Freedom Village has everything for assisted living. We had lunch there, and their menu looked very inviting and very healthy. They have Bible studies over there. The place is very clean. The people who worked there were very friendly and caring. All the reports that we are getting are that they are very happy to be there, so that sounds pretty good. There is a hospital nearby, a business area, a school, and a church.

The staff was really nice at Freedom Village. They took us on a tour, and they were very informative. They could answer all the questions. The rooms were very well appointed, too.

Freedom Village resembled a motel, apartment or condo building, with a pool in the middle. We were checking it out for my friend, who is considering various assisted living arrangements. They seem to be able to accommodate most senior circumstances with a variety of living options available. It also looked as though the staff could easily manage all of the residents, which is important to us. The main area seemed clean and well tended, with a casual and fresh décor. The staff was very nice and seemed to treat the residents kindly - many of whom were not ambulatory. The rooms were nicely kept and decorated. The staff was friendly and attended to all of the residents well. They have a variety of the typical activities that assisted living facilities usually have - plus a card game tournament that looked interesting. The food looked well-prepared and appetizing. Dining areas were welcoming and nicely designed. Events and outings scheduled include anything you can imagine - from restaurants, to art museums, the library, special events and celebrations. They also host parties for residents at the facility which they encourage friends and family to attend. We liked the exercise room where they had yoga mats and machines. They also have scheduled classes for those who are interested. We happened to be there when they were offering snacks. The staff was very friendly and all seemed to really like their jobs and the residents all looked well cared for and happy.
