We have friends at Westminster Oaks. The place was fine. Almost everyone I know liked it there. They have a venue for parties. The rooms were fine, average in size, the place was clean, and I have no complaints. They have expanded their facilities in addition to the two dining rooms, and they have a less formal place to eat.

I visited Westminster Oaks. I only met one of the staff members, who was very nice. The place was clean. They had activities like bingo, bridge, other card games, and exercise programs. They had people coming in to speak and entertain. They seemed to try and keep them busy. I did not have anything bad to say about it at all. Everything seemed to be fine, and they were very friendly.

My experience with Westminster Oaks was a good one. The staff there was very caring and respectful and treated the residents very well. They had room and apartment accommodations of any kind. The dining room there was absolutely beautiful, and their food appeared to be home-cooked. They had a separate dining room where residents could get prepared meals and also a cafe where residents could get something different. The community had a lot going on which kept the residents active and interested. In fact, residents were entitled to all the privileges of professors and could take courses at Florida State University. The courses from Florida State University were held at Westminster Oaks, so there was really a wide variety of intellectual stimulation.

We visited Westminster Oaks for my mother-in-law. It was a wonderful place, but the only thing they had available was a room that was very small, smaller than a hotel room. My mother-in-law didn't want to be confined to a place that small. That was the only problem. They had a beautiful campus, and the place was clean. Everything else about it was good. It is one of the top places in the city for retired people and people who need care.

We visited Westminster Oaks. The people that we have contact with were quite friendly, cordial, and very willing to be helpful to us. The dining facility was excellent. They have good choices of food, and they're well prepared. There were various types of accommodations from independent homes to studio apartments. The facilities that we looked at were very well kept, very neat, and quite compacted in a very pleasant setting. Also, they have almost anything you wanted to do. It was quite varied with some individual things like arts as well as plenty of group activities. I was most impressed with that. The only reason we didn't consider it is because it was out of our price range.

Westminster Oaks was really nice. They had different levels of disabilities there. It goes all the way from unassisted living, but it’s high-end stuff. I have friends that live there, and it’s top notch. There are people like retired doctors and other folks that are not doctors that live in the apartment complex, and then they have single family homes there as well. The residents are very satisfied. It’s quiet and very civilized as far as I could tell. The rooms are extremely clean because someone comes in to clean, dust, and vacuum.

I must say I was impressed with this facility. I am in healthcare and have been in and out of many retirement communities and nursing facilities. This one was clean and welcoming. The patient's were not running around dirty or unmonitored. The staff seemed to enjoy working there and new which resident needed what. They knew which needs needed to be addressed and did so accordingly. I also noticed that the typical community smell found in many older folks homes was not present in this one. All in all I was very impressed and when looking for a place to put one of my own family members, this would be at the top of my list. I think they would be happy here with the different activities available the other friendly residents, and the knowledgeable caring staff. Of the homes I have seen, this by far is in my top five.

The staff was very personable every time I was there, they always made sure that we had space to unpack instruments and enough space to set up. Once, as a group with my church, one of the church members who resides there took us on a tour so that we could see what was available to them. It was amazing! They have a salon, a movie theatre, a second hand store, everything. Recently, they acquired an organ and they used it for a silent film event they were hosting. It's just amazing, they do things with the community as a whole and reach out to college students, allowing us to do practice recitals and concerts and more, really creating a broad understanding of the unique environment that is Tallahassee. They strive to keep the people residing in their facility as independent as possible for as long as they can. I've never heard anything negative about it and those that I've met who live there really enjoy it. The location is beautiful as well.

The staff was very helpful and the buildings were super nice, especially the town-home style homes. The facilities were top-of-line including a small "town square" set of shops, game rooms, etc. where residents could spend their time. The food was very good and the cafeteria staff were among the nicest of the staff members. The actual rooms were somewhat small but I really only saw rooms that were for mostly immobile patients so others may have been bigger if needed. They have everything I would imagine someone would need in a retirement community.

My grandmother transferred to Westminster Oaks from Westminster Shores in St. Petersburg, Florida. She had come to the end of her money and ready to enter an Assisted-Living facility but wanted to be near my mother and I in Tallahassee. We originally were told that she would be on the first floor with the more "cognizant" individuals. When we arrived, however, she was placed on the second floor with the incoherent, particularly her roommate, who introduced herself to you constantly. After my grandmother was moved in (which was difficult due to needing "approval" for all the furniture), my grandmother decided to attend one of the events in the dining room down the hall. She was not very enthused to learn that she would be the only one, among 10 people sitting there, capable of participating. After that she decided that she would rather sit on my couch all day than be in that environment. The only reason my grandmother needed to be placed in an ALF was to ensure that she wore her oxygen and took her pill's, otherwise she was "sharp as a tack." Unfortunately, for those very reasons, Westminster Oaks decided she needed to stay on that 2nd floor. It was disappointing, but luckily we had very nice staff that were very helpful and always present and available to her. The food was always great and my grandmother always insisted on being "home" for dinner. The one thing that I liked the most was simply the design of the interior of the facility itself; large halls with lampposts down the center with park benches to sit on, and room doors and exteriors mimicking mini houses with flower boxes and windows.Overall, Westminster Oaks was a wonderful facility, but the floor confusion really did become a source of stress for the whole family. I would have understood putting her on that floor in a private room, perhaps, but that was not the case.

Westminster Oaks in Tallahassee, Fl is a wonderful place to retire and really enjoy life. With so many activities it is hard to choose those to go to and or participate in. I highly recommend it to anyone, especially young retirees (under seventy!) By coming early, you get the benefits of on going health care that is usually not available elsewhere. It is like living in a resort with all the concerts, physical activities, movies, etc. I have been here one and a half years and I have not passed a single person who did not smile and say hello and that includes the marvelous staff. Please come and join us at Westminster.

I visited this facility and I did not like what I smelled or saw. The place smelled like urine and the patient were hard to contain. I was there to sing for the patients and the staff was not prompt in getting the patients into the meeting room. I also did a tour because I was thinking of my elderly parents. We must've waiting about 1/2hour before all the patients were in the room. I saw very little attentive staff interacting with the patients. One positive about the visit is that they had secure doors to the facility. We could hardly get someone's attention to let us in, so I know their patients could not escape. Walking in this facility, it did not feel like home. This facility feels like an institution. The colors of the walls did not help make me feel at home. The hallway we had to walk down, felt small, maybe because of all the people in wheelchairs that were in the hall. The nurses' station was behind glass and doors and felt so impersonal.

My great aunt (age 95) resides in the health center area of Westminster Oaks. Although confined to a wheelchair (she has had several strokes) her mind is still sharp and she remains as active as her wheelchair will allow. She still takes herself to the dining room for her meals each day, and although she resides in the health center area, each time I have visited I have been impressed by the homey, neighborhood feel of that area. Even though it is a medical facility designed to provide long-term care, the hallways are designed to look like neighborhood streets and entrances to the patient rooms look like the front doors of home. The nursing staff are friendly and caring, and my great aunt is able to keep several pieces of her own furniture in her room for a more homey feel. Although her room is only semi-private, there is a partial wall that divides her space from her roommates and she is quite comfortable with the level of privacy. She also enjoys the well-manicured and beautifully-landscaped grounds at Westminster Oaks and has a fantastic view from the large window in her room. There are also plenty of activities and classes for the residents designed to keep their minds and bodies active and healthy. My aunt jokes that she doesn't like playing bingo, but she has plenty of other choices when it comes to how she spends her free time. All in all, I feel wonderful knowing my elderly relative is receiving excellent care from the compassionate and well-trained medical staff at Westminster Oaks.

The employees who deal directly with the residents are Fantastic and very caring, going above, beyond, and outside their job descriptions to help. Management personnel leave a bit more to be desired. The pool is not up to ADA specs for entering and exiting with only 1 handrail along the steps.

Westminster Oaks is a good facility. The staff I talked to were very nice, friendly and informative. However, the facility itself was not appealing. They have different floors for different levels of care. The rooms also weren't big enough. It's more like a hospital than an assisted living facility. They may very well do if they have a better set-up.
