Assisted Living Reviews for Amavida Senior Living

March 17, 2020


I visited this facility

Amavida Senior Living is a brand new facility, lovely, and we talked to some of the staff that were walking in the halls, and they seemed to be happy working there. We talked to a couple of residents, too. We got to have lunch there and we took a tour with 2 different sales associates, one who was experienced and one who was learning the ropes. They had a hair styling salon on property which we liked because my mother-in-law uses that service. The lunch at the cafeteria or restaurant was lovely, we liked the pool, and the rooms were very nice. It's the number one in our list, and we're looking forward to moving my mother-in-law there.

Independent Living Reviews for Amavida Senior Living

I visited this facility

Amavida Senior Living was the best of all the community I've visited. The apartments were ample size. I was looking at independent living. The courtyard, the grounds, the dining room, it's all much newer than the other places I looked at so I was more impressed. All of the different sections have their own courtyards so there were a lot of outdoor spaces. The apartments go right out into the courtyard, it's right out your backdoor and I like that feature. I saw a swimming pool, I saw an exercise class, I saw a Bingo being played, I saw Backgammon, and I saw several other things going on. It's very clean.

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

My mother-in-law is moving in to Amavida's independent living in December. I have been a part of the decision making process, have toured the community many times, and had a number of meals as well. It is brand new, modern, and the staff is very friendly. I'm excited for my mom and look forward to visiting just as much.

Amavida Living is a very modern-looking place. The whole building is white and very structured and not interesting looking. It had everything from senior living to medical care. It's very stern, and there was no warmth in it. It was very contemporary. The units were extremely small and the majority of the people there were women. There's a little bit of physical therapy and games. It was just not for me because I'm very healthy. These women had little pushcarts that they got around on. I might consider it 10 years from now.
