Independent Living Reviews for Parkwood Estates

I visited this facility

We visited Parkwood Estates and really liked it. It was really nice, and the woman in charge of sales was very pleasant. It's probably the place for my parents, but they're not ready yet. They have three meals a day and complementary rides. The staff seemed very nice, and the apartments were clean and nice. It was an older property, but they remodelled the apartments.

I thought Parkwood Estates was good, and the staff members that I met seemed fine. The rooms there were adequate. They had also invited me to go back there. In terms of activities and amenities, they have several things going.

I visited Parkwood Estates, but the gal was new, and she was not very nice. She told me she's been doing this for 28 years. I thought the prices were too high and she suggested I go to a place next door where there were a lot of parties going on. I did not like her attitude at all. The apartment that I saw had a sink and a refrigerator, a little patio, a bathroom, but it was way too small for the two of us. The place was a lot older too compared to the other ones I saw. The person who was in charge of exercises and activities was very nice and very informative. The lady who gave me the tour could take a lot of lessons from her.

My dad lived at Parkwood Estates for about a year. They would provide meals, housekeeping, and if you wanted to have a PT or OT, they had in-house folks available. They had daily activities, like light or gentle exercises and guest speakers who come in to talk about books or history once a week.

Parkwood Estates was great. The apartments were the same size and a little cheaper than other places. The staff was well informed. It was very nice. The room that we saw was very clean and well kept.

At Parkwood, I did not get the full tour, but the staff was very friendly, and the place was nice. It was in a country setting and was not as modern or contemporary. I would say it needed updating, but some people want it that way.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom was in Parkwood Estates. It is totally independent and didn’t do anything with the residents. They had meals with them, but they didn’t go get them for activities. They’re on their own there, but my mom has too much dementia. The location and the facility itself were nice.

I visited this facility

Parkwood Estate had a really nice floor plan, and everyone was really friendly and nice, both the residents and the staff. I liked the dining area, where the seniors were enjoying themselves. The apartments were great and had a kitchen, living area, patio, and a separate bathroom with appropriate senior measures for safety. It had a pretty generously sized bedroom that was separate ,and everything was staged nicely, so you could really get a picture of someone happily living there.

When we were looking for a place for my mom, Parkwood Estates was available. The staff were friendly. The rooms are clean and spacious. As for the activities, they have exercise programs, social programs, and music programs. The overall atmosphere in the facility is nice, though the food is not very good.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I chose to stay at Parkwood Estates because it was close to home, to the hospital, my church and my doctors. The location was convenient for me. The apartment I had was nice and I brought my own furniture. The services were good and the food was decent enough. There were different activities for the residents. But maybe they could improve on the food a little.
