Assisted Living Reviews for Almond Heights Senior Living

January 25, 2019

By Dee

I visited this facility

We visited Almond Heights twice. The girl who took us around missed the point of the visit, which was to give my mom confidence that she was going to have a life after moving in there. My mom wasn’t really impressed, so overall our experience was not good, because there was no interaction with the residents. The food was awful.

Almond Heights was too expensive for the same provisions that I got where I stayed. The people were very friendly, the staff was very caring, and the building was well lit. It was like on top of a low hill, but I didn't like that the dining room was right in the entrance. It had a small lobby and the offices were just cramped together on the left side, and on the right side was the dining hall. We were going back and forth on if they could give us a good deal or a special, but they stood so firm. They refused to and when I finally decided to go to the other place, they called me and said they were willing to work with me, but they were too late. However, the staff was very informative, and very courteous. They had painting classes, yoga, theater, and morning exercises.

Hi Jessica, I'm Katie, I work at Milestone Retirement's support center. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a detailed review. I'm sorry to hear that you were met with some hesitancy when discussing price, and that you ultimately chose another community. I've shared your feedback with our Regional VP of Operations and Sr. VP of Sales for further investigation and coaching. If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. Sincerely, Katie - Digital Marketing

This is a beautiful building and the people that work there are wonderful. My aunt lives there and she is very happy. Everyone is kind and loving. They treat my aunt like she was their own Grandmother. I love to visit. There are always fun things going on. I’ve eaten with my Aunt several times and the food is really good. I hope there is a place like this when it’s time for me to need a little help

This care unit does an outstanding job of caring for my wife. The caretakers care for residents as if they were their own family. They really care for you with love. God bless them all.

Kind, warm team members greeted me and directed me to a beautiful courtyard where music was playing. Residents were involved, smiling and laughing. There were tables with great foods and drinks. My visit was a wonderful experience and I am looking forward to visiting again soon.

I visited this facility

Inquired about pricing and availability on the phone. The receptionist couldn't/wouldn't tell me anything, not even basic information. Immediately switched me to their marketing department who asked more questions than answered. I felt like I was buying a used car. She sounded like a kid and kept asking me to come tour even though I told her I was not from the area. I decided to tour when I came into the area only to have to wait for 30minutes while all if the directors were eating lunch together. I finally just left. Beautiful building but a little like a clown house.

Provider Response

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

As a family member of a resident at Almond Heights, I'm not sure we made the right decision. My mom says that most of the key leadership is no longer there and have been replaced by people who don't act like they care. Mom has a group of friends and one of them was told that she can leave when she wants! My mom's other complaint is that there are activities but not very many that are fun and entertaining. Mom is pretty independent, but her friend said she had to wait for almost an hour for someone to respond when she buzzed for help. When someone finally came, the girl said that two people had called off. This seems to happen a lot. No staff stability in the higher ups or the caregivers. Too bad the building is so pretty but the staff is bringing it down.

Provider Response

Hi, I'm Katie, I work at Milestone Retirement's support center. First, I'm very sorry to hear that your mother is having a negative experience at Almond Heights. We don't want any of our residents to feel like they aren't valued, and take feedback like this seriously. I've been in contact with the Almond Heights management team, The Regional Director of Sales, and the Sr. VP of Operations regarding your review. Thank you taking the time to submit detailed feedback. Sincerely, Katie - Digital Marketing

My husband and I came directly from Syracuse, NY and were the very first residents to move in. It was September 2015. There are many options for senior living in this area, but I'm so glad my daughter chose Almond Heights. I've loved it from the moment I walked in. Love everything about it and would never consider living anywhere else.

Provider Response

Today it snowed in the mountains while we had perfect weather and enjoyed our outdoor concert and wonderful snacks prepared by our great chef. A good time was had by all. The music was excellent. And the staff attended to our every need. I'm lucky to be a resident of such a caring community. They really try to make us residents happy

Provider Response

I feel this place is amazing. Very friendly, family environment. We've lived here for over a year and the staff really tries to make us happy. Chef Karla tries hard to please everyone and is always open to suggestions by the residents.

Provider Response

Thank you for your kind words. The staff at Almond Heights does truly care and while we may not be perfect, our genuine goal is to make our residents and family members happy. And, we agree about - Chef Karla is a wonderful person! Thanks again!

I visited this facility

Dinners are very sad dried out over cooked chicken or dried out pork, or dried out beef. Cover it with tasteless gravy and maybe no one will notice. Hardly any activities and no bus trips. If your loved one lives there long don't expect the video chair excercises to help. Plug in the video and recede to the office no supervision and no leg work. Keep looking you haven't found the place for your loved one yet.

Provider Response

Hi, I'm Katie, I work at Milestone Retirement's Support Center. First, I'm sorry to hear that you've been dissatisfied with Almond Heights dining and Lifestyle & Leisure program. I forwarded your review to our Director of Dining Services and National Director of Community Lifestyle for further investigation. Thank you for taking time to leave a review, Katie - Digital Marketing
