Independent Living Reviews for White Oaks

At Manchester Senior Living White Oaks, the rooms were done very nicely. In many rooms, people had a lot of their own painting or pictures, which I thought was really good for them to be able to bring things with them. We just didn’t think it was a good fit for us.

White Oaks is very clean and three minutes away from my house. The people that run the place are fantastic, and the staff goes out of their way to make themselves available whenever the residents need them. The dining area is very clean, and the servers are so accommodating to everybody. They have a salon, a chapel, a library, movie nights, and activities every day. I would highly recommend this place to anybody. The people are so welcoming and so nice, and it was an easy choice. The staff went out of their way to make the parents feel welcome, and they do a fabulous job. My parents had an issue with the cable TV while I was there and the manager personally went down there and spent 45 minutes on the phone getting it fixed.

I visited White Oaks. It was very nice facility, and we had a very nice visit. Unfortunately, I thought my parents had progressed beyond the point where they weren’t going to be looking at independent living and would probably need assisted living. The staff was excellent, very knowledgeable, and very friendly. The rooms were very nice as well. We were able to see the dining room, but we did not have time to try the food. The dining room was very nice, very clean, and looked great.

I was impressed with White Oaks and liked the owner's (Holiday Retirement) philosophy. They really catered to the elderly. The rooms were very nice and well kept. The activities were geared toward the elderly with group activities like card playing. They have outdoor activities and go places.

White Oaks is really great; I was impressed. I like the people and the facilities. I like the proximity to everything that I know. It looks like the couple of people that live over there are more like my type and my style. The people that I saw there were well-maintained people; I didn’t smell any odors. The dining room is great, nice, and clean. I enjoyed the visit.

I visited White Oaks, which is in my neighborhood. The staff were very accommodating. The nice thing about the apartments was they each had a balcony or a patio. The dining area looked very nice.

My uncle is now ready to move in at White Oaks, and we chose this place for price and location. Also, the people were excellent, especially a woman named Ador -- she’s my contact person there. He has a 1-bedroom apartment with its own kitchen, living room, bathroom, and bedroom. My uncle has been there to sample the food, and he said it has been very good. I would recommend the facility.

It was pretty good. I believe it was White Oaks. The gentleman that took me around was very courteous, and he explained everything fully to me. The surroundings were clean. The rooms were beautiful and spacious. The only thing is my income won’t let me go into the community. What was described to me was very nice.

My family member has lived there several years. Quality seems to have deteriorated. The current managers are warm on the surface, but difficult especially to employees. The good chef was fired last year and replaced with months of temporaries. Food now is scanty and low quality. The goal seems to be outward appearance rather than real concern for the residents. Hopefully new managers will be appointed who will restore the previous warm environment.

White Oaks was a beautiful facility. It was very clean. My parent thought it was a wonderful place as far as cleanliness and friendliness. There were plants and benches to sit on in front. It was a pristine-looking place and it was homey. It was also too expensive. It was unaffordable for her budget. A two-bedroom was almost like $5000 a month and to go in a little apartment for that much money, I would have to say no. I also asked them what happens if she runs out of money, they said she would have to leave but they'll try to find her some place. That's not good. Older people don't want to move, they want to find a place that they're going to enjoy and it's a trauma for them to move. We were invited to White Oaks for a 100-year-old birthday party there. It was for one of their lady residents. The food was very good. You can tell that their chef really loves to cook. There was also a man who was hired to sing at that time and it was really nice. They also have their own bus for them to do things. Regarding their staff, my parent liked them. They were very nice. As a whole, if people can afford it, White Oaks would be an ideal place.

White Oaks is absolutely beautiful. I like best how clean it was and how friendly the people there were. The rooms seemed adequate for my needs. I would definitely recommend them because they have everything that a senior would need. I like it very, very much, it is just way above my income.

White Oaks is just an exceptionally well-maintained facility. The management was very warm and welcoming. They spent a lot of time with me touring the facility and answering my questions. They have even kept in recent communication with me about where it stands with my parents. They have been very supportive to us. I felt very strongly that they were a very caring and supportive community.

My mother-in-law lives at the White Oaks independent in Manchester Ct. The staff is amazing with all the residents and are very aware of each of their needs. They all have gone above and beyond for our entire family. The whole place is very clean and absolutely beautiful. They have over 150 residents and all the managers and every staff member knows each of their names. That is a wonderful feeling for anyone but especially elderly. My mother-in-law is 94 and felt comfortable there from day 1. I would be hard-pressed to find a complaint about this place.
