Kudos to the nursing staff and resident care aides! What a fantastic caring group.! The resident care director works closely with her team to provide exceptional care. As I visited a friend at the facility During meal time as I usually do, The nursing director was talking to residents and serving the meal with a smile. Where else would you see management staff assisting with meals, bedtime rituals . Not too many places. Grand Villa has gone through a lot of changes but I have seen nothing but caring individuals who work as a team to care for each and every resident. Linda

The room my grandmother was in has mold in it, and its had mold for about a year and her room is not the only one, and they kept stating that the problem has been taken care of, it most certainly has not, we are extremely disappointed we have had to come to this to get justice for the problems that hav happened, the staff is not at all great, feels like I meet a new executive director every 6 months, in-fact I have, I think were on executive direct number 5 with in 2 YEARS.

I really liked Grand Villa of Englewood. I liked that it is like a compound. The staff is extremely enthusiastic. They don't have enough key staff members, but the recreational director has a goal. She made that place. There was just a life to her and she made it fun. Whatever she did, there was a life and a fire inside her and she made a difference. It seemed there were less staff members, but they were incredibly welcoming and warm. They were genuine. I would love to see my parents go there. The price was awesome. It was less expensive and the rooms felt like going into an old hotel. They have a pool where they do water aerobics, a gazebo area, a small courtyard area, and a small theater where they can watch movies.

This is not a typical assisted living facility. Most everything (except memory care) is on the ground floor. All the living units open to the outside, onto nicely landscaped courtyards, The residents can walk under cover from place to place, The environment is open, secure, friendly and inviting. It struck me that the residents and the staff were genuinely happy to be there, The rooms were reasonably spacious and the common areas were very nicely done, comfortable and a nice extension of the residents ‘ own rooms. This facility is well designed, staffed by caring professionals where the residents were happy to be living there.

I stayed in Grand Villa in Englewood. It's an older, gated building with a nice courtyard that you can walk around in. The memory care unit was highly secure. The staff was very good. The staff and the caregivers were excellent. The dining area was very nice, but you can't order what you want. They make what they want, and that's it. They had Wii bowling, card games, exercises every day, bingo in the evening, movies, and trips. I was paying less but I had a small studio. The price was comparable to other places but the care was lacking at some things. They didn't have enough help.

Went on tour and loved the entire community. The independent apartments with outside entrances give a real sense of having your own apartments. The assisted living and Alzheimer's building are very well kept and secure. The staff was caring and engaged with the seniors and families. I met the new resident nurse in charge and was so impressed. When mom is ready this will be my top choice.

I visited Grand Villa of Englewood. It was very pretty, and everybody was very friendly. I had lunch there and sat with some of the residents. However, I did not care for the independent living. The rooms were fine, but it was like a motel. The doors were on the outside, so if you wanted to go eat, you had to go outside, walk around the building, and go in another door. If you're in assisted living, then the doors were all on the inside. The lady who showed me around was having an extremely busy day. She had four people coming to take this tour, but even being that busy, she was still very nice and very accommodating. The staff members in the dining room were lovely, too. They had a birthday party there for a lady who was 100, and it was a very lovely experience. They seemed to be enjoying the lady's birthday as much as she did.

I liked the layout of Grand Villa of Englewood. I liked the grounds and the green space that they had that the other two I visited didn’t. There was a pool, and each section of the facility had its own little courtyard and green space; that made the decision for me. The thing that stood out to me most was the entrance, all the plants, the green spaces, the pool, and the courtyard areas. They just seemed to have, especially for people who like the outdoors, a lot of more space like that than the other two places I toured.

My mother-in-law moved into Grand Villa about a month ago. I like that the doors open to the outside so that is like they have their own apartment. It does not feel like a hospital or a nursing home. They open up to beautiful grounds, but at the same time, the design of the building is square and secured, so she cannot wander away by accident or get lost. They renovate each room when each tenant moves out. Her room is has pretty much brand new floor, new walls, new bathroom, and new kitchen. It is big. It is much bigger than the other place that we looked. The cost is much lower. However, they do not give out paper communications to each of the individuals as to what is going on. It is posted on the board, and my mother-in-law does not always remember to look at the board for the activities; if she had a copy in her room, then that will be good. They serve three meals a day, and the food is good. That staff knows everybody's name. They interact and talk with them. They stop and interact and talk with us. It will make you feel more comfortable because you know the staff cares enough to know everybody's name.

We love Grand Villa. It is very comfortable and very much like my mom is living in her own apartment. The people are very friendly and accommodating. The price was less expensive than where she was before, so there was not much about it that we didn’t like. So far, we are very happy with it. She has a studio, but you can separate the bedroom area from the general living area.

Grand Villa was renovated, so everything is brand new. They're taking care of Mother, providing her meals, and helping with her medicine. The few staff members I met were very friendly. The director was very nice and there after hours just to make sure everything was right. They had live music two nights a week, bingo, game night, movie night, and a swimming pool. She's very happy.

Grand Villa was an older facility and not as polished. The staff was wonderful. They were very gracious, patient, polite, and no complaints or anything. It just seemed like an older facility, and it wasn’t for me but for a friend. We had lunch, and it was very good. Like I said, it was an older facility and maybe not as gleaming as a newer place would be. I think it was adequate ,and my main complaint would be that compared to some of the other facilities we looked at it was older and just didn’t seem to have the gleam and shine of the newer places.

We found Grand Villa of Englewood for my mother-in-law, and we were very pleased. It looked nicer as opposed to others. The people were nicer, and it was close to us. They had a lot of activities, like bingo, bus rides, exercise class, and music. The dining area and the food were very good. I would recommend it to my friends.

Grand Villa of Englewood was very nice and accommodating. We had all of our questioned answered. It had a main dining hall where everyone had to go to eat, and we didn't think our friend could adjust to that well. The room he would have been in was like a hotel or motel room that was facing out to the side walk and not in the interior hallway. He would have been OK with that, but we would not be OK because he would have gone out in the rain to walk to the dining room. There was a covered walkway, but still, you would get wet when it rained. There was a nice a pool. The place was a little further from our house, but the nurse’s station and all of the medical staff were right there.

We really liked Brookdale Englewood. It seemed very nice, and I liked that it was more open-plan. There seemed to be more stuff to do for high-functioning people, and I liked that there is a progression that if you get sicker, they can go into more help. They have a movie theater there. Once they decline, they won't have to move; they just move in to a different area. Everybody was really friendly, and the grounds were very nice. We saw the dining room, and we liked the layout. It felt more like going to a restaurant, and my dad liked that.

Brookdale Englewood is clean, well-managed, and friendly, and the difference from the other places that I looked is that it has lots of choices. The room that I have for my dad is a studio apartment. It is clean and well-maintained. The dining room set-up was very nice, and the food was adequate. They had movies and cards. They take them out to shopping. They have some outdoor activities that they do. However, maybe they should look at the food that they are providing, and maybe ask for feedback from their clientele on what they like to eat, rather than what they want to feed them.

Emeritus at River Oaks is an old and huge facility. It is outdated and they need to upgrade. It just didn't compare to the other facility though the prices weren't that much of a difference. My mother uses a walker, and with this facility being big, she would be overwhelmed by the distance that she has to walk there. She is going to have a good deal of walking at Emeritus. I didn't feel that this facility was appropriate for her. Also when you walk in the front door, there is no code or anything and you can just open up the door yourself. There is just no security thing and a lot of the residents would go in and out. When I first came in, this older gentleman was coming out with his walker, and this is exactly what he said, "I just pissed 5 minutes ago and I have to go again." I didn't like that experience.

The people in Grand Villa of Englewood were very friendly, kind and they work hard. The rooms were nice, they also have a nice swimming pool. The reason we chose the place is because the staff is excellent and very kind. My mom loves the food, they have good choices and it was tasty. They have a nice schedule of activities and they also have an amphitheater. The facilities they have are quite nice as well.

Grand Villa of Englewood has independent living and also Alzheimer's, which are two separate units. It's a gated community. It has a pool and they're right next to Englewood Hospital and they take a lot of patients from Englewood for rehab. They showed me a one-bedroom and a studio, which was set up like a motel. There were no balconies or patios. There's a sidewalk and an inner courtyard and they're dog friendly. They have a pool and they're within driving distance. It's in a country setting. They're next to a waterpark and across the street from the post office, so they're centrally located. It's clean, and the staff, patients, and housekeeping staff were friendly. There's a mix of older and younger staff members. They recently renovated. The only objection is the parking lot needs work. It's first come, first serve parking. They took care of 15 Alzheimer's patients in another facility during the hurricane when their electricity went out. They seem to have good management skills. The independent living is on a single floor and it's enclosed with a garden inside a square. The garden was nice and well groomed.

Grand Villa of Englewood was very nice. The staff was very helpful, showed us all around, and gave us all the information we needed. The dining area was clean, and the food menu was very good. They had a library, a TV room, video games, bingo, card games, and people who come in and entertain a couple days a week.

My sister is having trouble with Grand Villa at Englewood right now, but it has been good, and I like it. The place is very nice. I think the doctors and nurses there are not doing things right. I think they need to be checked out. My sister's apartment is very nice. They clean her room and they take care of her laundry.

I love Grand Villa of Englewood. It's very well-kept and the grounds look like gardens. My dad picked the place because when you walk out your apartment door, you're not walking into the building, but outside. The grounds have flowerbeds, the pool is kept up nice, and it's just a nice atmosphere. It's all gated so nobody can come in and the only way you can get leave is through the front door after signing out. The food is very good and they have a lot to do there. The pricing is good too. It was one of the least expensive places that I looked at.

I really liked the layout of Grand Villa with everything on one floor. What I didn’t like was you didn’t have a choice for dinner. They had a swimming pool, a kitchen if you wanted to cook for the family, and a separate dining room, so that was nice. The front room had a library.
