I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

She's now settled in at Grand Villa of Dunedin. We found it very clean, pleasant, and updated. People were professional, and they had nice looking rooms. They had activities and good staff.

"Looks like home, feels like family" is a motto the Grand Villa staff lives up to. My mother lives here and I know she's in a safe and loving place and is well cared for. The Executive Director and his team are very accessible, which is very important to me as I do not live in the local area. Any inquiry is readily attended to, the building is well maintained and recently was thouroughly renovated. I recommend this community.

I visited this facility

I was very impressed with Grand Villa the moment walked in. It was light and very friendly. I was invited to stay for lunch which gave me a good idea of what they do; it was a very nice lunch, the people were extremely friendly and very clean. I was there over an hour, there were three of us at my table -- the greeter and a man -- and he said that he was getting old and he knew that he would be a burden on somebody in the future, so he elected to move in; that’s a pretty good testimonial.

I visited this facility

We went to visit Grand Villa of Dunedin, and it felt that they didn't have quite a lot of activities. They said that they have a lot of activities, but the population was older. There was nothing really going on. The rooms were very nice, but it was small.

Our family is extremely pleased with the way Grand Villa - Dunedin handled our Mother's recent medical emergency. She was immediately transported to a skilled nursing care facility where she received excellent care until she was able to return to her apartment at Grand Villa. Once again, Grand Villa provided the transportation and transfer. Our family is very grateful and thankful for this service. Our Mother is very happy and comfortable, and loves the staff and everyone who helps her at Grand Villa. Our family thinks the administrative staff and all employees are "the greatest". They are very accommodating and friendly, and provide a variety of activities and programs for the residents and family & friends. What a wonderful place Grand Villa is! We are so glad we chose it for our Mother's home. We know that she is safe, clean and given excellent care....and eats well!!! Thank you, Grand Villa, for making our Mother and all of her family so very happy for the excellent care and attention you give her! The family of Marie

My mother had a little trouble with the residents at Grand Villa due to personality clashes. The unit she was in was not comfortable. I don’t think there were any problems with the staff.
