I visited this facility

Masonicare at Ashlar Village looked excellent. It was very well kept. They had different types of living arrangements - cottages, villas, studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. They were all excellent. They had a lot of things for people to do with all kinds of activities. They had exercise classes, support groups, gardening classes, knitting classes, and a computer class. It was located in a lovely setting, and not a city setting at all. They had a lot of walking trails and a lake, and it was very pretty there. They had a fancier dining room and then they had a cafeteria-style dining room. Some of the plans included a meal or three meals. The staff was very helpful, answered questions, was very knowledgeable, and took us on a tour of the whole complex, the apartments, and the cottage. It's probably one of the best and the most reasonably priced because I know the cost of some of the other places.

I am moving into Masonicare at Ashlar Village. The dining hall looked fine. The outside grounds were great - the gardens and the walk around. The people seemed to be friendly. The staff was helpful. The apartments I saw met my expectations and they're ideally what I was looking for. This place seemed to have all the amenities - the food, the waitstaff, the professional nursing, and housekeeping. They had plenty of libraries, a nice exercise room, a pub, and a small grocery store.

Masonicare at Ashlar Village had every level of living from independent cottages to intense care. They have everything but what we toured mostly was independent living. We ate there and that was very good. We sat with other residents and we toured other residents' apartments. We toured each of the different stages of housing they had available. I would rate them very high. The staff was energetic and was enthusiastic about showing us all the features. She was very polite to the residents who showed us their facilities. She's just a delightful person. The place has been there for a while, but it has to be incredibly well maintained and up-to-date. It had all new features in the apartments and updated equipment and materials. It's perpetually being made current. It seemed as if they had anything and everything. I was impressed by all the different activities they had available for the residents, everything from hiking trails to art classes and different arts that anybody wanted. I know there was music available and they have tours. I know they take buses of people to different activities. I know they have transportation available to take you to doctors' appointments, activities, group functions, or just even trips.

We like Masonicare at Ashlar Village. My father stayed there for two weeks. It's very organized and very clean. The people are wonderful. Everybody comes up to you and introduces themselves. The nurses and the director knew exactly what was going on. If they didn't, they'd find out. The aides were great. My father had somebody stay with him 24/7 named Sam; he was awesome. They took care of his meds. It was very clean, and it was like a hotel. My father had one bedroom with a bathroom with all these handicap things. He had a little kitchen area combined with the living room, sitting area, and three nice-sized closets. They had a ton of activities; unfortunately, he wasn't well enough to go. They do have a ton of activities every day. They have ice cream sundae days, floaties days, singing, and some entertainment on the weekends.

My mother is in Masonicare At Ashlar Village . My experience with the place has been wonderful. I have all compliments for them, they're doing a great job . The staff I have interacted with are all wonderful, very caring, generous people, and my mom loves it there. We have experienced their food and it's good. She's looking very good, so I'm sure that they're feeding her very well.

My mother was at Masonicare at Ashlar Village. It was huge, and they had everything there including hospice. It's absolutely gorgeous. The staff was fabulous. Everybody was very patient and very friendly. All the nurses, the cleaning staff, and the kitchen staff were just really nice. Their food was very good. They had two options for their main course, and it's like a restaurant. They had bingo twice a week and people come in and play music and trivia. It was spotless; they're constantly cleaning.

We’re going into Masonicare at Ashlar Village. My husband has Alzheimer’s, so eventually, he will be going into a different stage. Included with our monthly fee will be our electricity and all the appliances. They do housecleaning every other week. There is a meal plan if you want to, but we took a villa and I intend to do our cooking there. We have the availability of the dining room or during the day they have another restaurant where anyone can go into if they want to. They have card playing and arts and crafts. They have everything else that you can find in most type of organization. I know other people that have moved in there. It is very highly recommended in our area. This one has freestanding buildings either cottages or villas, which I like. You can have your own garage and laundry. When we opened the door to this place, it felt like I’m home. It’s a nice, huge place. They have apartments and some you can just rent them by the month. They have the healthcare facilities right on the premises. It’s convenient and it seems to answer all the questions.

Masonicare is a bigger facility with a great staff and a lot of activities going on all of the time. Mother is very happy in an apartment with a huge bath, bedroom, a living room, and a little kitchenette. They have bingo, happy hours, exercise classes, movies, cooking classes, and just about everything. The meals are great in the dining area, which is beautiful and has linens and fresh flowers on the tables.

I visited Masonicare at Ashlar Village. I like it in general; it's very clean, modern, and new. The apartments were roomy and had lots of closet space with washers and dryers. They had lovely dining facilities, and they had a luncheon place that was also very good. They had villas that were very nice, roomy, and very clean. We had lunch there, and it was excellent. They had swimming close by, and they had transportation if you can't walk to that. They had bowling, wifi, a gym that was nicely setup, card games, service to a lot of activities outside, a little movie theater, and an auditorium where they had programs and people came in. They had a choral group that sang for other residents. We have friends that are there, and they like it very much. The staff were excellent. Everybody was so friendly -- all the residents and the staff -- and they knew everybody's names. And they were fairly priced.

My brother and his wife have already moved into a community called Masonicare. The rooms that they chose are quite large and very clean. Their amenities are very nice also. The staff seems quite knowledgeable. Everybody, even the people we didn't interact with, were very friendly in greeting people. I have eaten there with my relatives, and the food was very good. We did lunch. It was served very nicely, just like a restaurant, where you're getting each course separately. There was one thing on the plate that my sister-in-law didn't care for and they asked her what she would like instead, and they were just very nice. Everybody is very pleasant. The grounds are gorgeous. They have a very large water area with fountains in it and a walking trail. They have a number of different meeting rooms and a library. Every day they have different activities going on. They also have trips.

There is everything a resident could want here! Activities, a great and social dining hall, an exercise room (with different types of classes), a bank and salon, a consignment closet, healthcare and nursing aides (based on one's needs)- just to name a few! I remember the first time visiting my grandparents. My cousin came along and they took us on a tour of the facility, introducing us to all their friends along the way. I've never seen them happier! I think the most important thing (for them, in particular, but I believe for most residents) is continual mental, physical, and social stimulation.
