Independent Living Reviews for The Westmont

October 15, 2017

I am/was a resident of this facility

I like everything here at The Westmont. I feel like I'm on vacation. It's like a hotel restaurant. The staff is great. One thing I don't like is the food, because they don't have a good chef and they can definitely hire somebody better. Also, there are some not very nice people here. I stay away from them to avoid being insulted. Some are stroke patients who are just mean, especially the men. The management is excellent. They offer a lot of services, activities, and everything else. There's a lot of non-English speaking young staff and if you order something, sometimes they don't understand you, but they're doing the best they can.

This is a clean, well maintained facility which offers independent living at a reasonable rate. In addition, the facility lets health care providers maintain on site presence enabling residents to receive either "stand by" assistance, or more custom assistance as necessary for their situation. On the practical side, three meals a day are included as a part of the monthly fee. Housekeeping services, transport to local facilities and shopping are available and there are a wide variety of activities for resident participation

My tour at The Westmont was nice. It was almost like going into a hotel. Their rooms were very spacious and well laid out. Their food was excellent. I was really impressed with the whole place. I was interested in the fact that they have social activities in and outside the community, and they provide transportation for the residents to go shopping or to doctors' appointments.

I was very impressed with the staff at The Westmont. The hallways were nice, wide, and bright. I liked the idea that it was all in one facility, and you do your walking inside the building. The apartments were all pretty comparable, and the dining hall looked very nice. The food menu looked very inviting. The wife of the managing partners was very helpful, nice, and friendly.

I moved my mom into The Westmont today. The place is very nice, clean, open, perfect, and smells fine. As far as I am concerned, it is one of the better and nicer places. All the people at the front desk are polite and cordial. The dining area is extremely nice. The price is pretty much the same, if not a little less than a couple of other places that had odors, smaller hallways, and congested. This place is extremely nice, and I am very happy with it. Everything is above any of the other places that I have gone to, so it was an easy choice.

The Westmont had nice rooms. The studios did not have the kitchen, but the one-bedroom did. They also had shuttles to and from doctor’s appointment and stuff like that, and the staff was very friendly. This was high on our list because of the atmosphere. The residents all seemed to be happy; we talked to several of them, and they were all happy. One guy would not want even to live anywhere else, so it was very uplifting. They had all sorts of everything as far as almost anything they want to do. We ate there, and the food was very good. We liked the size of the rooms and everything there too.

I visited The Westmont. I’ve been there twice. I noticed the second time I was there, they didn’t really have a kitchen set up in the apartment that I looked at. It was a small refrigerator that sat under the cupboard like you do in a hotel. There was no stove. The staff said I could buy a hot plate and a microwave, but I was not thrilled with that. I like having a kitchen however small the place. I was not thrilled with The Westmont with the kitchen business. They were very nice people. The people that live there, they came up and talked to me too; that was really nice. I really enjoyed that. They had a lot going on there, but I just couldn’t exist in a place like that.

We visited The Westmont, and it was excellent. The customer service, the folks, and administration are just phenomenal and accommodating. They made the accommodation happen for us and made it possible. The facility, the food, the service, and the housekeeping was superb, and the unit was very clean and well taken care of. I went there for a meal, and it was fantastic, delicious, well-prepared, and the delivery and how they do their service was fantastic. I was really happy there. It was welcoming, inviting, and felt like a fantastic place. We ended up with a studio.

The Westmont was a really nice, modern, and clean place. The staff was upbeat, really nice, and accommodating. They were eager to help us out with our questions. There were exercise programs, shopping trips, occasional bus trip outings, and things like that. We received several follow-up calls from their director and appreciate their efforts in trying to reach out to people who need their assistance.

I visited The Westmont for my mother. The best thing about this place was the sales director and the live-in couple I met. They provided on-site maintenance and oversight. Yhey were super-friendly, personable, and nice. However, the property itself was a little bit shabby. Yhe carpeting in the first floor common areas looked like it needed to be replaced, in my estimation. The Westmont had more affordable monthly pricing, but it was the least attractive in terms of the neighborhood. The neighborhood was more industrial and not really where you would want to stroll around. The facility had a courtyard, so there was a little bit of greenery in the area, but the general neighborhood had too much traffic, too much density, and too much noise.

Hi, I'm Katie, I work at Holiday Retirement Home Office. Thank you so much for your sincere feedback. Although we can't really control or communities' surroundings, we most certainly can control their upkeep and appearance, so this is helpful. I've passed your review onto our Resident Relations department. Thanks again, Katie

We visited The Westmont. It was wonderful, very clean, and very organized. The people all looked happy there. The staff that helped us was really nice and stayed in touch to let us know when a place was available. The people working there were wonderful, very sweet, very nice, and very caring and work full-time in case something happens to any of the residents. The rooms were a little bit small, which was one of the drawbacks. My parents would be moving from a large house into a small one-bedroom apartment, but they had everything there that they need. Everything was very close, which we thought that was great. I thought it was really nice. There were patios and game rooms, and a full kitchen to feed them three meals a day. They had movie nights and shopping trips every week. They had a bus that would take them around to do different activities like going to baseball games and things like that. They also had exercise classes.

The food choices at The Westmont were not as good, with fewer choices. It was also further from my home. It’s clean, but it’s old. The staff was nice, and the rooms were OK.

My parents moved in to Westmont last October 28. The staff was very helpful and willing to work with whatever your needs are. The amenities have been good. They liked the food; the common dining room is nice and laid out with four chairs per table. What I liked best about the place is that the managers live on-site. They’re always available, and are always there. We also needed to get assisted care, and the company on the second floor has been helpful in working with my dad’s needs. They do have activities, and they’ve taken part in some card games.

The Westmont was a good property. It was a convenient, nice building. It looked like it was clean and well-kept and seemed to be a comfortable place. The personnel that I talked to were very friendly as in most of the other places I visited, and it was a clean facility -- a little newer maybe than some of the others. It was in good shape. The social recreations were very good at the Westmont; there was plenty to do, and they had a lot of options.

I visited this facility

The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had lunch which was very good and the menu for other meals appeared to be adequate. My reasons for not choosing this facility were the one bedroom apartment was too small with very little storage space and the location was not compatible with my current lifestyle.

I visited The Westmont. I feel really satisfied with the way I was helped and the service that I was given. The staff was really communicative and had been very helpful. I’ve been speaking to them every couple of months since I visited, and they invited me back several times. I think their rooms are nice. They could use some cosmetic updates in different places, but they’re well-kept and well-maintained. I like the location. I like that it is near the university, and there are easy-to-access grocery stores. For people who are in an independent situation moving directly from home, it seems like it’s still a part of a very vibrant community.

We visited The Westmont Santa Clara for a friend's mother. It was really nice. We looked at a room, and it looked really nice. This was a really nice place. It was very clean, and the people were very friendly. There was a one-bedroom apartment with a small kitchen area and a small refrigerator. With regards to activities, they had a lot of exercise programs.

We went to The Westmont for a visit, and the facility is nice. It had a nice dining area with a piano. It had three things on the menu. The chef came out and explained what the menu was. The food was absolutely really good. They offer transportation to the doctor's appointments. The room was really very nice, and they have a nice courtyard. They have a piano player that plays music during lunch.

All the staff here at Westmont is just really great. We have community meals where everybody eats at the same time, and it's just a very comfortable feeling in the dining room. They provide bedding and towels and they'll wash them, not your whole laundry, but that part is really nice, and then they remake the beds and stuff, and they clean once a week. The managers are on site twenty-four hours a day, which is really nice, and it is just a warm, comfortable feeling. When you come into a building, there is a large living room and you see out to a patio, which is nice. I held out for a little bit, hoping that maybe I would find something a little larger for a room, but everything else just washed out the size of the room.

I chose The Westmont for my mother, and she is very happy there. I find the staff very friendly. My mom chose a studio, and she is very happy with that. I've eaten there several times, and I think the food is quite good, and my mom pretty much likes it too. There are occasional meals that she is not thrilled about, but the quality of the food is good. They have quite a few activities; some right there at the Westmont, and some you can sign-up and go to on a bus. I think the environment is nice. I like the way it is laid out. The dining hall is nice and large, and has a lot of lights. My mom likes the environment too.

The rooms were standard rooms. They were reasonable. They had small rooms, like studios. Then there are 1-bedrooms and there are 2-bedrooms. I like the staff. They are good people, very friendly. The food was very good. The Westmont had a lot more activities than other facilities that we saw. They have entertainment there. They take you to places. There are some music and art programs periodically. It's in an area of activity in Santa Clara town. There are shops and homes around. They give you 3 meals, and the kitchen in the room is a kitchenette, a very small place. That's one thing we liked about Westmont, because we don't want to cook. Cooking is a hassle, so 3 meals is fine. Westmont is a chain of places owned by Holiday Retirement Group, and you can take your car and go and stay some other place. They'll let you stay in their place if the rooms are available, for free, up to a week. You can live there and eat food.

We decided to go with The Westmont because they have a room that my mom needed, and their prices were good. The facility was nice, and I think their location is good too. The staff were very nice and friendly. I was able to eat there, and the food was good.

The Westmont was so small. I could imagine downsizing to it. Other than that, it was OK. They even had a beauty shop. We had the chance to eat and had my choice of menu, and I enjoyed it. They had an activity room, and they had a schedule of things. They did art classes. I like the way the rooms were arranged. Walking down the halls was really nice. You didn't feel like you were in a prison or something. It didn't have much space. It was clean, nice, and fresh. The place itself had little shops. They have a bus that will take you away if you have to get a ride out into the city.

I had a tour at The Westmont, and everything was fine. One thing I noticed was that the carpet, when I first got in there, was dirtier, but other than that, the rooms I saw looked fine. The staff were very accommodating. The people who are managing the place are exceptionally nice, and they seem to be very caring, and that is a good thing. I also like the fact that it's just walking distance from other places, and I think for independent living that was a nice feature.

The Westmont was excellent. It's a very nice place. That's one I really like my sister to go see. It's a beautiful facility. It's one of those places that does allow smoking. My sister does smoke. In some of the places you either have to go outside or you can't smoke at all. They have the whole third floor for smokers. They can go out on their balcony and smoke. That's one reason I really like the place. They supply breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They have snacks all day long that you can have if you want. They take you places in certain days of the week, to doctor and dentists, and other days you can go to Target or Lucky.

My mother is currently residing in Westmont. I'm quite happy with them. The staff there is very friendly, the facility is very clean and it has a friendly environment. So far my mother is quite happy. If she's happy, I'm happy. I've had lunch and dinner there and the food is quite delicious. So far I really like it for her and I feel that she's safe there. The service is very good. They're very quick to anything that we need and they definitely assist her. I know there's cleaning every single week. She doesn't have to worry too much about having her apartment a mess. Even the residents there are nice. They're very friendly and polite. Even the parking is very convenient for me. They have elevators. It's very easy for me to be able to see my mom if I have things to bring to her. They have movie nights, game nights and bingo nights. I don't know if my mom took advantage of the services, but she definitely utilize the free shuttle service. If she has a doctor's appointment she can go wherever she needs to go. The only thing about the rides is they stop doing the service after 1:30, so that's kind of limited. And sometimes she has afternoon appointments. So that's probably the only downfall. But I definitely thought Westmont was a better choice for her.

I visited The Westmont. The staff was nice and gave me literatures to bring home. The dining room and food were okay. However, it was a very old old building and the apartments were strange. I didn't like the way the apartments were set up and the arrangement of their two bedroom apartments were weird. There was no area outside the building. Everything was inside and I didn't like the location.

I was able to visit The Westmont. They have a very nice place and it looks like a hotel. The room is pretty comfortable, but they don’t offer assisted living. They offered me lunch and the food was okay, nothing special.

I am/was a resident of this facility is very helpful and I learned a lot from this website. I found The Westmont and this is where I live now. It is okay. It is decent and clean. It has a very beautiful view. It is not great because it does have some flaws, but it is still good. When you live here, you have to eat at certain times or you can't eat. At other places, they have little more windows of opportunity with regards to eating. We have this big dining area but the line could be so long during mealtime. I'm working and a lot of these people don't and they are like 2-year-olds that have to be entertained. They take like an hour and a half for a meal. The wait is just too long for me. I wish they would just let me have my food to-go. I was at another place before and this is a common flaw among these kinds of facility. This same thing happened there. I had a really hard time getting here. My moving here took me six weeks instead of two weeks because of some delivery problem. However, the staff, Eddie and Kay, they were really nice to me. They just let me start the lease when I arrived. When they got promoted someone else took care of my account. He then decided he was going to add $4500 more starting at the beginning of the lease. I paid it at first because I felt very vulnerable. When the statement came, it said I only owed $2100. However, they made it up to me. They took all that money and put it at the end. So that's my problem. There are a lot of people who are just trying to get money from people like me, whose husband is dead and has a little bit of money. We're very vulnerable to these types of things.

I visited The Westmont and it was a nice facility. They got the living facilities and some studio apartments. Their dining area was very nice and very spacious. They also have all types of activities depending on what you want, like knitting, playing bridge or chest, etc. The only thing I saw as a drawback was their inadequate maintenance. There was something that broke down and it took a little time before they were able to get to it, but this was minor considering the overall facility.

We stayed in Westmont for six months, but we didn't like it. The people were nice but the management was only interested in money. They didn't care about the people at all and they just wanted to save the buck. We initially thought we'd like it, but when we got there they were just so tight they didn't want to spend money on anything. The salesperson made a lot of promises when we were interviewing, but they didn't follow through at all. The food was not good. There's a high turnover of staff. There were only three people left of the ones who have been there when we got there six months before. They just kept firing people and hiring people. They don't have any grounds at all but they have a square building with a small courtyard in the middle that's all cement. They don't have a space where we can walk our dogs.

Everything about the Westmont in Santa Clara and the people that I talked to there were nice. Their price was better too. The only thing I didn't like was that their big meal was served at noon instead of at night. I just don't like to have a big meal at noon and a small meal at night.
