Assisted Living Reviews for Heron East

March 29, 2018

I visited this facility

Heron East was excellent. I have had two tours there and both went very well. The staff member I spoke with was very helpful. They have meals every day, a nice game room where they do a lot of activities, and a nice library. The 1-bedrooms were not really spacious, but they're very nice. They always have a nurse on duty. The menu looked very good.

My dad is very happy at Heron East. The staff is all very good and caring. They are easy to deal with. It's a very clean and safe environment for my dad.

Heron East was very nice, professional, and very direct to the point. They didn’t waste my time; I like that. They don’t have the services we needed for Alzheimer’s because they didn’t have memory care. They were able to talk to me about the needs of my parents, and we were able to discern that. They didn’t have down the road what my mother might need as he has Alzheimer’s. They were efficient, so we were able to determine it wasn’t the place very quickly. I didn’t even have an appointment, but they were very gracious.

The people at Heron East were very friendly and gave us tours of the different types of rooms. We went over the pricing and stuff like that. Overall, it was a pretty good experience. It was beautiful, nice and cheery, and the residents were pretty happy with what they have. They do arts and crafts and have nice grounds where they can go outside to spend the day out. They have transportation services to doctors, shopping, field trips, and salons. You have to eat in the dining room. They had large studios but no separate bedroom spaces.

The staff at Heron East spent time with us during our visit. They were very good and efficient. The rooms were of a nice size and very updated. The place is modern. We were not able to eat there, but their dining room is very spacious and nicely set up.

We looked at Heron East for my mother. It really was very nice, but the rooms were really small, and that was the turn-off right there. With regards to the staff, I didn't like the waitresses. They were rude. I had lunch there, and the waitress was rude to all these old folks. The food was OK though.

Heron East was very well run. The employees had been there for a long time. There was no big turnover. They were very attentive. My mom enjoyed her time there. The rooms were beautiful. The food was good. They let everybody order what they want. They had a walkway that goes all around the building. They also have bingo, parties, entertainment, and movies.

The people are very friendly and very informative, and Heron East fit the price range of my friend. They have mostly activities in the afternoon. They do beach volleyball, bingo, horseracing, word games, and chair exercises primarily.

My dad says the staff at Heron East is very nice, and the food is very good. It doesn’t seem like there’s a ton of activities. The room seemed very nice and clean. I like the bathrooms. Their showers are walk-in showers. They’re very nice and very safe, and my dad can bathe himself in that type of shower.

I like the person that gave us the tour at Heron East. She showed us what they had. They had a lovely room there; however, because my brother had equipment like his walker and, wheelchair, and he wanted his full size couch and queen size bed, it was too small. They only had four large rooms, and they were inhabited by people, and he would be on the waiting list. Other than that, it was very clean, and they had been voted most popular by the families in the area. So, they had high ratings. They took us to lunch and it was fine. I really liked everything about the place.

My mother moved to Heron East about 3 years ago. She has adjusted very well and participates in the many activities provided by the facility. Heron East has a caring and compassionate staff from the housekeepers to the administrators. I am very pleased with all aspects of my mother's care at Heron East and have recommended the facility to many of my friends with elderly family needing assisted living.
