I spoke to the main lady at Magnolia Grand, who was accommodating and very nice. The front entryway was very beautiful. Everyone appeared happy there. They had activities, but I didn’t see them.

It’s been six months since my father moved into Magnolia Grand. The place is wonderful. They take good care of them. The food is very good, and my dad is very happy. He is very lucky that he got a one-bedroom unit that has not been updated, so it’s a bit cheaper than most of the others. The room is very nice, and we are very pleased.

I visited Magnolia Grand for my sister, and it was very nice. The staff was very nice and helpful and called me a few times to see if there was anything they could do. It was senior living. They had libraries, game room, gym, and hair salon.

We visited Magnolia Grand for my mother, but it was not suitable for her requirements, although it was a very nice place. The environment was wonderful, the people were happy, and it was a nice place, but it was an independent living facility only and didn't have a life progression program. The staff was very wonderful, nice, helpful, and informative. The residents had a great energy, and it was clearly a caring atmosphere. The grounds were limited and didn't have an outdoor place. The location was appropriate for anyone who needs access to the city center for doctors' visits and that kind of thing.

The senior living place that I really liked was Magnolia Grand. It is very clean, and everybody that I met was nice, friendly, and happy. I didn’t see any obvious problems. I absolutely recommend this community. It is clean, presentable, and friendly.

The most beautiful facility we toured. Nice staff and programs. Accepts pets. The views out the window were not what my mother was looking for.

Magnolia Village was where my mother was at one point. It was very clean. The people were very caring. My mother did not like it when we walked in the long hall way. She felt very closed in, so she wanted something that when she went out the door, she was outside because she could get claustrophobic really easy.

They were getting ready to do a remodel. My father-in-law needed too much care to be there. Our visit was good.

My dad is moving here, and it appears to be very neat. It’s been there 29 years, and they're going through a complete renovation. They’re re-doing each apartment, and they’re beautiful. The staff has been there a long time, and there’s not a lot of turnover. They seem to have a lot of very active people. The food is really good. We’re looking for him to have a very nice social time there; the place seems to be very social. They play cards every day and have a movie in an actual theater. They have shuffle-board, lawn bowling, and a lot of different things that he can really do actively.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I’m at Magnolia Village. It’s a lovely place. They have a great staff. The only problem is they raised their rent quite considerably, and that’s why I was thinking of leaving, but I worked that out. Otherwise, they are wonderful people. They have a lot of activities here. They have a resident council of which I am president, and I can’t say enough about them. They’re very, very good. I would definitely recommend them very highly to anyone who needs this kind of facility and can pay the rent.

My mom just signed a lease with Magnolia Village. My mom hasn?t moved in yet. They're in the middle of a remodel, so it's all getting refurbished. One of the things that impressed me was the fact that the old section, the part they're remodeling, was actually very well-maintained. You could tell that even though it was older, they had kept up with the little things as they went along. It was a good thing, and it was very clean. We had lunch there; the food was very good. They provide three meals a day, open restaurant sitting kind of thing. They have two entrees, and then there's a list of eight things you can always order if you don't want any of the entrees. It's like a 2-hour window for breakfast, for lunch, and for dinner, which was very nice. They do your housekeeping. You have to do your own laundry, which is fine. My mom can do that. They don't provide caretaker assistance, but they do have a contract with a care provider, and they'd had that same agency for 10 years and almost all of the people there have been there for five to eight to 10 years. Very low staff turnover.

We went but they were not assisted and we're definitely needed assisted living. The visit went very well though. Of all the facilities I've visited, this one is the closest to my house. They have a dining room and it was fine. Their rooms were small. The staff were very nice and courteous. I would have no problem recommending that facility.

About Magnolia Grand

Magnolia Grand has been described as living in a five-star resort with a big family. Here, we understand that home is something different to everyone. For some it's a comfortable place to rest and unwind after a long day of activities, socializing or traveling to wine country. For others it's a quiet retreat where you can enjoy the company of a friend or the serenity of a private apartment.
