I went to Bradenton - Westminster Manor. It was very, very homey. The staff was extremely friendly, and they were very, very helpful in answering questions. I visited a one-bedroom apartment. We saw the library. We just toured the first floor, some of the rooms on the second floor, and the dining room. It was very, very clean. I would recommend it to anyone. They told us about different trips, and restaurant visits that they provide. They have a beautiful pool outside.

Our tour at Bradenton - Westminster Manor was really helpful. The staff was personable. It was very homey. It's more of a faith-based facility, which is something that my mom was looking for. It was a little bit older building, but they put a lot of attention to detail and made sure that the facility was very updated on the inside. The one-bedroom is a nice size. They were very accommodating to us. We didn't eat there, so I don't know what the food was like. They had a lot of amenities similar to the other facility in the sense that they had a library, a game room, an activity room, and a chapel, and that kind of thing. It looked like they had a nice set of amenities and such. The one-bedroom apartment size was good. It was a very homey community, and they seemed to have a good value for their money.

My wife and I have been Independent Residents of Westminster Manor for 9 years and we have always felt blessed that we had the opportunity to live in a community with a staff that has always gone beyond their job description to help the residents out. We are so fortunate to have a dining staff that prepares three meals a day for the residents living in the Manor building and several really good options for the Independent Residents who do not have the three meal plan. For all residents there are two main meals served at lunch and dinner, each with two or three different entrees with tasty salads, vegetables and desserts. One major factor that convinces us we made the right choice was the way Bradenton Manor handled the COVID-19 crisis. Initially there were restrictions placed on visitors to our Assisted Living and Nursing Center residents which, while were inconvenient, proved to be very effective. We had no COVID-19 infections with the residents during the initial period in 2020 and early 2021. With surge in the Delta Variant COVID there now are strong recommendations for adhering to the CDC Guidelines. But now that nearly 95% of our residents have been vaccinated some of those restrictions have been eased or left up to the discretion of each resident. Early in 2021 Bradenton Manor arranged for a local pharmacy to come with a team and vaccinate the entire community all in one day and the follow up shot another day with the Phizer Vaccine. It was an amazing operation. There isn't room here to expand on all the positive feelings we have living here. Bradenton Manor's moto is "We're Family not Fancy" and that is exactly what we were looking for in a place where we will spend the remainder of our years with the friends we have made here.

I am a long-time resident of Westminster Manor and am happier today than I was 12 years ago when I moved in...and I was very happy then. I cannot say enough good things about the Manor. My husband and I are in a villa, therefore independent residents but we know when the time comes for further care, it is there. No moving, just shifting to another area/room in the facility. The staff is amazing. They are professional, competent, caring and friendly. The meals are delicious, beautiful and varied. The dining staff takes great pains to satisfy the needs of all of us...and that's a real challenge. We rarely "eat out" because the food is so good at the Manor. We have more fun, educational, creative activities than you can imagine and more than a person could possibly do all of! The facilities are kept clean and in good maintenance condition. The relationship we have with the staff is amazing...very much like family. We have recommended that our friends consider and come to Westminster Manor and will continue to do so. Is it perfect? Of course not...it is made up of human beings, but it would be hard to find a better place for this time of life. As I said, we are extremely happy and would encourage anyone looking for a retirement community to check out the Manor!

My mother has been living in Westminster Manor. She's been there for seven years now. It's a wonderful facility. She's been in independent living all this time. It's excellent. It is a beautiful campus. It has a main building that has independent living, assisted living, and a nursing facility. It also has an apartment building right next door that's all independent living. It also has mobile homes across the street for people who are in independent living, and there are houses across the street. It has all the types of living that you could want, whether it's an apartment, a mobile home, or an actual house. The staff is great. Everybody is professional and personable. We really haven't had any problems in the whole seven years that she's lived there. I have tried the food, but I haven't eaten there frequently. The dining area is very nice, but I'm always hearing from the residents that there are some days the food is fine, and some days it's not so great. They just aren't too thrilled with the food, but I don't know if it's their taste buds or if it's the actual food. She actually goes to the exercise classes. They have classes to help people to stay fit, balanced, and that sort of thing. They also have a full-sized pool and pool classes. If people just want to go to swim, you can just go in the pool. They also have things like bingo, and they have performers. Normally when there's no COVID, they have excursions to performances, to play golf, or whatever you want to do. There are a lot of activities for the residents. It's almost perfect, but nothing for me is ever perfect. She's been very happy there, and so have we. We've had good experiences too. The staff is good with overall support. If there have been any problems with anybody's health or whatever, they have a nurse who's like an on-site social worker. Eighty to ninety percent of the people living there don't have anybody locally. She's very good about taking care of the people and making sure that they have the services they need. It is nice for somebody who may not have family in the area.

Westminster Manor is a very friendly place. They have a lot of activities for my sister and she is very happy there. She loves her apartment and the food is very good. I haven't had a negative problem yet. She's been just very content. Her room is a very nice size. It's got a kitchen, a dining area, a living room, a bathroom, a big bedroom, and a walk-through closet. The other closet has plenty of storage units and she's got a really pretty view from her room. The facility is a big complex. There's a pool, shuffleboard, and a little dog park. The next building is where the main building is, the offices, and the assisted living. They have a little country store there. So, if they're looking for things and they can't get out, they can ask the staff and they will stock them there so they can get them there rather than having to go to stores. The staff that I have dealt with has been very helpful and very friendly. One of the things that I like about them is they check the residents. Everybody is equipped with an emergency pull cord in the bathroom, but there's also a button that every resident has to hit before 11:30 in the morning as a check-in. If they don't do that, then they're going to check on them whether they're independent care or not, which is a huge plus. Normally, if she wants to have something repaired, she can call the maintenance crew and they come right away and do it, but right now, they're a little involved with this plumbing project that they have unless it's an emergency. So, it's a little slower than it normally would be, but for everything else, they've been very accommodating. She was very much against even moving from where she was, and now she says how happy she is that she moved. They have a medical center too, and if they don't use that medical center and you need transportation, they can take you to the doctors. They do field trips and shopping trips that takes everybody to the mall. So, a lot is going on and I think their price is very reasonable given those activities, and compared to some of the other places we looked at, I think that they're comparable in what they offer in their care and their attention to the residents, and it's not a brand new facility. It's been there for a long time.

We thought Westminster Manor-Bradenton was the nicest apartment for my mother-in-law so we moved her there. It was newly refurbished with soft, uplifting colors. It has big spaces and spacious windows that look out at the palm trees. We like the quality of the staff, the appearance of the room, and the ability to get furniture into the room to make her feel at home. The staff has been very kind and very helpful to her too. We're very pleased with the interaction between them and my mother-in-law. The food is very good in assisted living where she's at. Yesterday, she went to a church service and she hasn't done that in months. Her room is very nice, it's redone with a fresh floor and walls. It has a nice small kitchen area and a very nice brand-new bathroom that's refurbished.

Westminster Manor of Bradenton looked like a very nice community. It seemed to be very clean, very organized, and staffed correctly. The staff seems very knowledgeable and kind. They weren't able to show me a lot of the amenities due to the COVID thing. I wasn't really allowed to go further beyond the opening, but I saw a little bit of the outside area and it looked OK, and the building looked well-maintained.

Bradenton Westminster Manor was a very nice facility. The staff was friendly. It's well kept up. They had lots of amenities, an exercise room, a library, computers, and a pool and classes. However, it's not affordable for my brother-in-law. We looked at studio apartments. They had independent living, but they offer total care as well.

Mom lived in the Manor for 25 days. She lived in assisted living where I was assured she'd have help with her ADLs. I stayed with her the first week so I saw first hand what happened. Once she was moved in, no one met with her to give her an orientation or even to show her where to go for meals. When I asked for one, I was told by the Nurse Director she was too busy and someone else would come. No one did. We didn't eat there the first two days because we didn't know where or when to go to meals. No caregiver came to her room to help her dress. In the 25 days she was there she wasn't helped to bath once. In 25 days she went to one activity because they didn't have an activity director, so there were few activities and no one came to tell mom about them. She sat in her room alone. After I left, she called me on the phone constantly worrying she'd miss meals because no one could be bothered to help her learn the new schedule of when they were. After she'd been there 20 days the Nurse Director told me she wasn't adjusting to the new environment and told me I had to move her out immediately and provide a private caregiver until I did. Mom did not 'adjust' because 1) they didn't give her time to adjust and 2) no one made any effort to help her. For whatever reason, the Nurse Director didn't want a resident that actually needed more than 10-20 minutes help a day (she told me no one in assisted living needed more than that. If you need more, you need to be in memory care). The Manor is absolutely lovely and the food is so good I wish I could eat it everyday. But if your loved one needs assisted living, this place doesn't provide it.

It's going to be two years since I moved in to Bradenton - Westminster Manor. The parking is so complicated and so compact. It's very difficult to maneuver a larger car into a parking place or exit. They have an exit gate and if a bus blocks the gate, you can't get out. The meals are good. I've been able to maintain my status quo as far as weight is concerned. They have a nice exercise room, a nurse that gives my B12 shots, and three meals a day. They have a good menu every day, but I can be very independent from the menus downstairs. My room is adequate. I have a large bedroom, a large dining room and a kitchenette. It's on the second floor and I overlook a nice view of the pool and the trees. It's a very beautiful picture looking out the window. They have two elevators which is very adequate for a five-storey building. I like the staff very much. They're very cooperative and even the CEO here listens to you and follows through. They're right on top of things here. They have an activities organizer and she's very on top of things. There are a lot of things and entertainment that comes here, movies, and bingo. There are lot of activities here that people can get involved in. They have aquatics, a pool, a Jacuzzi, and physical therapist. What's nice is if something unforeseen happened to me that I needed 24/7 care, they have a facility right here that they can transfer you to. You don't have to look for a nursing home.

My mother was a patient here for approximately 2 months, I visited her just about every day she was there. She was in the back building for rehabilitation. This section is also the skilled nursing location. If I was given adequate time by the hospital before my mother's discharge to choose a proper rehab facility this place would not even make my top 50. I will NEVER under any circumstances allow my mother or anyone I care for to stay even 1 day at this place. I dreaded even having to go back to pick up her medical records. After her discharge I never wanted to step foot in there again. Our family began to reference the facility as "The Prison". If you care about your loved one at all DO NOT send them to this facility for rehab or skilled nursing. Other than the fact that my mother's room smelled of mold & mildew the rooms and food are adequate but the care is TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, INADEQUATE, UNCOMPASSIONATE & UNSYMPATHETIC. My mother was awating brain surgery because of Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus. She fell many times while here because they never put an alarm on her. Even after several falls, no alarm was ever placed. As a result of the falls she suffered from several compression fractures of vertebrae for which she later had to have surgery. Because of her illness she began to develop urinary & bowel incontinence. They let her sit in fecal matter for various periods of time. Once, after returning from an offsite doctor visit they let her sit in fecies for several (3-4) hours. Another time they let her sit in a wheelchair bottomless without a cover for 2 hours before I got there because they could not find briefs her size. I ended up going to purchase briefs in order to get her what she needed so obviously patient dignity is of NO concern. Many complaints, concerns and requests by her family about medical issues were never addressed or noted in her chart. Nurses and CNA's were rude and annoyed when questions were asked about treatment. Multiple requests needed to be made to get anything done wether it be about medical issues, comfort, diet or anything else. Every time I was there nursing home patients were yelling and/or crying because they needed something or were just lonely. On several occasions myself or my family including my minor children tried to comfort patients. People were often rough in handling my mother causing bruising and pain especially after she became incontinent because it irritated them having to deal with the issue. My mother's illness caused severe cognitive decline which was never respected or given any compassion. Though my mother was in no condition for activities that department severely lacked too. Fingernail painting, bingo or they would push patients in wheelchairs to a small crowded unorganized room to watch a movie. The only good thing about Westminster Manor is Paul in the Physical Therapy department. Paul cared about the patients and was the one I had to go to if I wanted something done. I could go on and on about how terrible this place is. Please believe me and look for a different facility. Do not send a loved one or anyone to this horrible place.

Westminster Manor had villas that are not gated. I would recommend them to anybody. My friends live in one, which they purchased and renovated to fit their needs. They have a high rise and a health care center. They care for the residents until they pass away. I've been to their dining room and the service was very good. We looked at a place in their high rise. The reason we didn't choose it was because we didn't want a high rise. We wanted a ground level where we could just walk in and out our door and look out the window and see people walk past, which you can't do in the high rise. The facility is clean, and they clean their houses for them. The dining room and the other areas near the dining room are always very clean.

I’ve been at Westminster Manor and I would pick to go there again. The physical therapy is great. The help is good; they answer the call button much faster. It’s upbeat; it’s nice and very clean. The menus and the food were great; they change it around. For the food and care, I’d pick Westminster Manor first.

The staff was very cooperative at Westminster Manor. It's very, very clean. I enjoyed my visit with them very much. I know that the food there is very good, too. This appears to be a very caring place. They have a bus that will take people shopping if they wish. They have games, and also there's a church that's right there on campus. One thing that I'm concerned about, though, is cost. They were probably the most expensive of the three, but sometimes you get what you pay for.

Westminster is a very nice and clean place. They serve three meals a day. I have a very nice one-bedroom apartment and there's plenty of room. The people are nice. They have some very nice social activities and each day we're doing something different. For example, we're having hotdogs and hamburgers one day, then game day the next, a fashion show, or a bunch of guys who are 100 years old would tell us stories.

When I visited Westminster Manor, the place was very clean. The people were very nice. They were re-doing the dining at the time when I was there. When they showed me the rooms, they were very small. It has no kitchen just a bathroom that you could get into. I used a walker all the time, so I don't think the rooms would be large enough for me and my walker.

My parents recently moved into the Shores at Westminster. From the very beginning, when they made an inquiry about moving there to the end, where they were moved into the facility, everything was handled in a very professional and respectful manner. There was someone to walk them through every aspect of the move and help them feel comfortable with their decisions and welcome in their new home. They have adjusted to the new surroundings and love it. They love walking through the surrounding neighborhood. They love the food, so Mom has decided to hang up her apron.
