Assisted Living Reviews for Southern Gardens Assisted Living Residence

I am a friend or relative of resident

My mother has lived here. They worked with her income, gave her things she needed without us asking and worked with us when we felt mom needed something. The only reason I can't give 5 stars, the place is old and has some issues every now and again (elevators, a/c units, and carpets not vacuumed b/c the vacuum cleaner was useless). The staff is superb and very accommodating. They have a great activities director, a car and a bus for taking residents to appointments and excursions, a beautician who comes in once a week, a large lobby and dining room, and their courtyard is beautiful. The only reason I have had to move my mother is due to her dementia progression. She has become a flight risk and aggressive/confrontational because she wants to go "home" and they are not a locked-down facility. I hate having to move her because nothing in her price range will be as nice as Southern Gardens. I would recommend them.

Southern Gardens Assisted Living is a nice and very clean place. We’re still getting my mother situated in there. It’s close to me for one thing, and they supply anything that we need so far. The rooms are very spacious. The biggest problem is that the door is not locked out front, so I just sit there keeping an eye out for her, and hopefully that will be fine. The staff is very nice and very accommodating; they answer all my questions. My mother says the food is great.

I visited this facility

Southern Gardens have a lot of nurses on staff and everyone worked well together. The facility is very spacious and I didn’t hear anybody complained about the food.

Southern Gardens was clean and a nice place to live in. It had a nice surrounding outside and it was in town so they could walk to different places. My uncle was well taken care of when he lived there. His was in a small shared room. They had activity programs and they took them on trips.
