I visited this facility

I am very impressed with the Court of Saint James. I want to move in there. They have one and two-bedroom apartments. Nothing's available immediately, but they have turnover as with most living places. Some people move out because they get to a point where they need assisted living or full care units. The facilities were very nice. The apartments were bigger than most of the units that I've looked at for seniors. The kitchens were extremely small, but they had everything in them. The good thing about the small kitchen is it's kinda hard to fall in there because once you're in the kitchen, you don't have to take any steps. You can stand in one place and just turn around, you will get your stove, your oven, your dishwasher, your refrigerator freezer, and your sink without really having to take too many steps. It's pretty safe and it has all the things you want. The cabinets are low enough that I can reach them and I'm short. Because it is a senior living place, the one-bedrooms have one-and-a-half baths. The main bathroom is part of the bedroom. The bedroom is good sized, actually larger than the apartment that I'm in now. The bathroom has a tub with a shower, but it also has a walk-in shower. You don't have to climb over the tub to take a shower, you can walk right into a separate shower. It's large enough that you could put in a chair or a bench in the shower so that you could sit down. The tub and the shower both have handles in the wall that you can hold on to, the ones that are made for handicapped living. It's a good sized bathroom with everything you want and it was very safe. I like the safety things in there. The areas that were not carpeted would be the kitchen and the bathroom. Everything else was wall-to-wall carpeting from the front door all the way through, which makes it safer. If you fall, at least it's a softer land. You're not landing on a hard floor. It has all kinds of recreation areas on the ground floor, a hair salon, a washer and dryer, a laundry room with plenty of seating space, and other little amenities. Each unit also has a hookup for a washer and dryer. You can get the stand-up where the dryer is on top of the washer. Some units come with it because the people have left it or you can buy your own. They have different services. Once a week, they pick people up to take them grocery shopping, and once a week, they have a hookup with the local restaurant where they give you the menu at the beginning of the month. If you like what they're serving, you can order a meal brought in from the restaurant for like $10. It's a nominal fee. They have an apartment on the premise that if you have guests that want to stay overnight, you can put in to request that apartment. I think it's available, they said, for $75 a night and it's fully furnished with a little kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping area. There's also a nice lounge where they have many activities for the tenants, along with a full kitchen that goes with that lounge. It holds about 50 people and that is available for the tenants if you want to reserve it, to have a little party of your own with your family and others, especially like holiday time, your birthday or any time that you'd like to have a group to get together. There's no charge for it, you just have to reserve it in advance. The building is U-shaped and in the middle of that, there's a courtyard. The staff was very nice and answered all my questions. The only concern I have is that I've been waiting for a couple of weeks for an update or just status as to where I am on the waiting list and how things are moving in that direction. No one has gotten back to me. It could be that they don't have any definitive information, but I would just appreciate somebody calling me back to say that. They don't have food service, but you can order food from the outside for $10. You're right in the hub of West Hartford. CVS is next door. There's a pharmacy and drugstore right next to the property. Right in the immediate vicinity, there are shopping centers and cultural centers. You're within a mile of the West Hartford Center where so much goes on, lots and lots of activities if you want to leave the premises, but there's certainly a lot that you can do on the premises. It's very nice on every level, that's why I want to move there.

I visited this facility

We are interested in the Court of Saint James. It was very good, very nice, and affordable. We looked at two bedroom apartments, and they were very nice, spacious, and clean. They were in the process of renovating it, but it looked very nice. We like the Court of Saint James. The facility was very nice. From the independent living ones we looked at where everything is included, I would say this facility was the best. They impressed me very much.
