Assisted Living Reviews for The Gardens at Columbine

I am a friend or relative of a resident

The Gardens at Columbine is a lovely place to move your aging parent to. The grounds are lovely and the atmoshphere is relaxing. The activity director, van driver and other staff are doing a great job. My mother moved in a year ago and she likes it a lot. I can't imagine her living in any other facility. I didn't give them five stars because they are currently in transition with a new director. He is still learning and growing. He does give his best effort, however. Although the food is not as good as it was with the last director and the communication between residents' family members and staff is not as good as it could be, it is evident that they are working hard to improve, and it is getting better. With the increase in residents, they could use more staff. I would recommend this assisted living facility. The residents there seem to be very happy and content.

I visited this facility

This locally owned assisted living community opened in 2000, and is frequently filled to capacity, with no immediate vacancies. Pets are welcome here, which is unique in the area. There are nice gardens with bright flowers planted on the outside for residents to tend and enjoy in a pleasant setting that includes a stream and gazebo. The activities offered are the usual things"”most of them are inside rather than offsite. The meals are served family style, and residents complain about the quality of food and selections offered. There are 100 apartments available, and the total cost is determined by a "point" system. For example, the base price is $3,500 for studio or $4,100 for a one-bedroom unit, both of which also come with 9 points. Those points may be used for goods and services there--3 points may be for laundry, 6 points for monitoring medication. There are six caregivers on duty during the day and two at night"”only one of whom is an LPN; that staffing level is insufficient for 100 residents. Gardens at Columbine may be a good fit for those who are fairly independent and able to make their own choices and don't need a lot of additional care and services. -Ruth Hillesheim, a social worker with extensive nursing home experience, with an emphasis on Alzheimer's and dementia care.
