We visited Horizon Bay Tamarac while in the region looking at assisted living facilities to consider for my friend's mother. We immediately liked the outer exterior, which appeared very well maintained and like a nice motel.
The grounds were nicely landscaped, with tranquil tree-lined walkways and seating areas. The facility can accommodate a variety of ambulation levels and as needs change, the care team adjusts accordingly.
We could feel a very good energy and liked the pastel color scheme, which added to each space nicely. The high ceilings with chandeliers made the rooms very elegant.
This facility had ample communal rooms for every activity imaginable, from reading in the library, to card games, physical exercise, crafting and hosted meetings.
The fitness center offered regular exercise classes and instruction and assistance whenever needed. The private living spaces were generous, and the ones we viewed were beautifully decorated with lots of fresh air and light. All units were well designed, efficient and yet still spacious.
They offer both private and shared arrangements, full kitchens or kitchenettes. Bathrooms were handicap accessible.There is also an emergency and nurse call system. They refurbish each space for new residents. The options include both independent living and assisted living situations.
The dining room was quite spacious, with a fresh decor. The food looked and smelled delicious. The menus all had healthy food options for all dietary needs and are offered all day, which is an extra perk that most senior communities do not usually offer.
They also have private dining rooms available for special occasions. Healthy snacks are offered all day and into the evening, as well as whenever residents request them.
The outside activities feature many interesting cultural events in the surrounding areas, like films, dining, museums, art and other social gatherings. There was also a large auditorium for parties and group events.
We were impressed with how the staff here interacts with residents with great kindness and caring. This is a well-designed, thoughtful living environment for seniors that includes everything that they need to live a rich life.
