Assisted Living Reviews for Aston Gardens at Pelican Pointe

We saw the memory care of Aston Gardens At Pelican Pointe. We didn’t see any residents and the director said they were probably sleeping. He took us to a room which was too cold that none of us could stay in that room; we had to go out. We also didn’t like that everything is dark brown or in dark tones. All the places were dark; they looked like dungeons. The independent living and the assisted living were beautiful. They were bright and cheerful.

Aston Gardens was a top-of-the-line place. We did not eat there, but I talked to some of the residents who said the food was wonderful. Their facilities were all at the top level. The personnel was very good, well-informed about their place, and presented it all very well. I saw more going on at Aston Gardens than in some of the others. The card room had all four tables filled with different groups playing different games. There was a group out in the pool exercising, and someone was in the weight room.

Overall, I'm happy with the whole place and people at Aston Gardens at Pelican Pointe. It's working out very well for my wife who at first was not used to such a big place with that many buildings. She's happy with the meals and where she lives.

Aston Gardens at Pelican Pointe was a really large, beautiful facility. It's just perfect. The food was excellent. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. They had a pool and Jacuzzi.

As a nine year resident of Aston Gardens, I feel qualified to say that it is like a top notch cruise ship with excellent services in every department. I am a very happy passenger!

I made a good choice coming here at Aston Gardens. They have so many good things to offer. I even gave up my car-buses shopping and appointments to doctors. We have nurses on premises and a doctor during Fridays. We also have lots of activities like dancing, games, cards, theaters, and trips. There is always something for everyone. The place is great!

Lifestyle here at Aston Gardens exceeds my expectations. I am pleased with things such as good meals, excellent healthcare professionals, various social activities, good housekeeper, 8 exercise classes per week, a helpful and knowledgable concierge desk, good security, and a well maintained landscaping.

Aston Gardens' location is very convenient and is near stores. They have a nice selection in terms of accomodations. The residents are busy all the time. We have arranged trips which we have a lot to choose from. The transportation is from our door and back home again. Meal time is always a pleasant experience. We have varied menu to choose from. Plus, home made cookies for everyone. For 3 years in living here, I have had fun and have made many friends. Indeed, it is a home.

Gardens of Venice is beautiful and brand new. It's just absolutely excellent. We couldn't have found a better place for my sister. So far the staff is very nice, very good, competent, and very friendly. We have had lunch and dinner several times there. The food was outstanding. They have all sorts of activities, from movies, to trips, to bingo, they offer everything there. My sister does not want to participate in a lot, because she has language problem. But she's fine.

We chose Aston Gardens for my in-laws because she was comfortable in that territory and it sounded like a nice place for them. The apartments are nice and spacious and it's very clean. They're living on their own but they go down to eat at a very nice restaurant there. I liked the part that they put new carpet in and repainted everything so it looked brand new when my in-laws moved in.

My visit to the Aston Gardens was very positive. It looked like it was a very well-known organization, it's very clean, and it seems like the people were active in that community. The staff was very accommodating and I saw nothing negative at the facility.

I visited this facility

Aston Gardens had several buildings all apart from but close to the common building. We had an OK but not outstanding lunch. They had a wonderful, large pool in an area that was not busy. The staff who showed us around explained the various programs and showed us the activity rooms. We saw art and exercise rooms, which were pretty similar to the other places I've visited.

I visited Aston Gardens at Pelican Pointe and I like that very much. The atmosphere was very nice. It was very friendly and positive. People have fun there. I have friends there. The only thing I didn’t like is if you can’t stay in indepnedent living, you have to leave to go to another building, which is quite nice, but that’s a move that would be hard for my aunt. I wasn’t interested in that. I like the dining room. It was a little dark but it was nice. The rooms were very nice, but I don’t like the fact that they have a big kitchen. I like the staff because the staff was very nice, and they have worked there long-term, which is very important.

I ate at the Aston Gardens, and the food was wonderful. I was quite familiar with the place because I go there every other Tuesday to hear a lecture from the professor that comes down from Tampa. So I was kind of familiar with the surroundings, and I did visit them one other time. They have independent living and assisted living, and then memory care, so they're quite bigger than the others I've visited. When I went, though, they were booked up and didn't have a guest room or anything to show me. The dining facility was beautiful. I know they have bridge groups and lectures, and they go to a lot of shopping and take you to your doctors' appointments. They seemed very accommodating, and they were more expensive than the others. They have a beautiful clubhouse and a beautiful dining room with chandeliers.

We had lunch at Aston Gardens, and it was excellent. The dining area was extremely nice. We had no qualms about the place. It was easy to go around. They had medical facilities that they provided. They had transportation. The apartments were very nice. We only saw one, but it was big enough for use except that the lanai was very small. Other than that, the kitchen was beautiful because most of the people there still had the old-fashioned electric rings on the stove. They activities like swimming. They had a putting green there. We were really excited about it. We could go there without a doubt. However, the day we were there, the policy was that men had to wear long pants in the dining room after 4 o'clock, which did not appeal to me because I did not even own a pair of long pants. I found out a week later from friends that we referred there that that was changed and they could now wear shorts at dinner. You could have a continental breakfast and a dinner or a lunch, not both, but there was enough food for the people. You could take a doggie bag up and have it that night if you wanted. It was very close to a public supermarket. You could walk there. The staff was very nice. We had a good feedback from other people we knew, and they loved it. From, what I had seen, I would recommend it to others. If you were walking from the outside into the building, the door would automatically open for you.

My parents were in Aston Gardens before. It was very nice. The staff was just fine, but it was independent living, so there wasn't a lot of interaction.
Provider Response

Hello, We do appreciate your feedback and will look into this. However I am confused on 2 things if you could help me with. 1) Does this person reside here at Pelican Pointe? 2) What type of interaction do you mean? We would be happy to discuss these.

We visited Aston Gardens. The people were very well informed, very friendly, and cooperative. They were very helpful with the inquiries. The facility was extremely well set up. It was beautiful, and it had beautiful grounds. It was very nice because it had the three levels of care -- independent living, assisted living and memory care. The apartments were very well planned out. We had lunch, and the food was excellent. They did a wonderful job. It was a very good experience. They had a wide variety of activities, and they also offered transportation to doctor appointments and churches. The daily calendar was very well put together. It is a very superior facility.

I like Aston Gardens at Pelican Pointe. It’s clean, and its location is excellent. Some of their residents were asked to be ambassadors and talked to us about how wonderful the facility was. They serve three meals a day. I also like the fact that you can have a small dog, and you get a first floor place.

We like the Aston Gardens. It was so beautiful. They do have covered walkways to apartment buildings. So if it is raining, you could walk and not get wet, but if you don't want to walk to the main building where the dining room is, they'll come with a golf cart to take you to the front door and drive you back if you don't want to walk or if you can't walk. The dining room was absolutely elegant. The food was delicious. The waiters and waitresses were very polite. The apartments were gorgeous. You have a kitchen nicer than my kitchen now, e.g., granite counters, all the appliances you could possibly want, and nice cupboard space. All the units have a small lanai. Each unit had its own washer and dryer, and that is a great feature. The hallways were well lit. They have a beautiful swimming pool, a beautiful outdoor Jacuzzi, and beautiful palm trees all around. Aston Gardens was gorgeous.

Services here at Aston Gardens are excellent. My apartment is spacious yet cozy. The housekeeping staff is courteous, pleasant and mostly effecient. The dining room is a beautiful place to enjoy various food served attractively by attentive staff. There are many enjoyable activities, games and lectures to keep me busy and interested. As needed, there is medical help, transportation to my doctors, security and a "fix-it" squad as well.

Among the things I enjoy in Aston Gardens the most are the camaraderie and companionship with everyone, the activities, food, and the carefree lifestyle. Here, we have no home to take care of and things are done for us. What more could I say? I existed in Georgia. Now, I am living in Aston Gardens!

After looking into fourteen independent living complexes, we chose Aston Gardens as the one that met our needs the best. After living here for nineteen months, we still believe that we made the right choice at the right time. We have made many new friends, have partaken in many activities, and have felt at home. We recommend living in this place and be surrounded with a caring and friendly staff.

My father was in independent living at Ashton Gardens. Ashton Gardens was great. He had a wonderful apartment with a nice kitchen, a microwave, and a dishwasher, which he never used. He also had washer and dryer in the apartment. There was a lot of entertainment. The dining room was luxurious. Everything was really wonderful. The relationship between the residents and the staff was very good. The only thing I didn't like was that if for some reason a resident couldn't get down to dinner, they charged $7 to bring up the food up. If he can't make it and you have somebody to go pick it up, it is $4.

Aston Gardens is clean and friendly, but the food is absolutely terrible. It is bland and tasteless, and they do not have provision for any special diet. It has many amenities that I really liked, but I cannot live there because of the food. They have a pool, fieldtrips, and companionship. My friend who lives there is very happy.

They have activities, and they gave very good information on what things were going on. They have game rooms and pool. They also go on short trips. Overall it was good.

I drive by Aston Gardens at Pelican Pointe all the time. It was a nice-looking place. They also have assisted living. It looked nice and I thought it would be a nice place to live. The rooms that I saw were nice; however, the people that showed me around didn't really impress me like they wanted us.

I looked for many places for my relatives in Sarasota County and Aston Gardens is by far the best. It is clean, well-run, staffed by experienced professionals, and everybody looks well-taken care of and happy. The dining room is lovely and elegant with a friendly staff. If anything needs repairing, someone is quickly at the door. It is a quality place and the price is right.

Aston Gardens is very new and upscale. They would have buses to take them shopping and to their doctors. But you could still be independent and have your car there. They had big, big units. They had a nice dining room, a bar, a little library and an exercise room. They have a calendar of events with classes and field trips. It's one of the best around the area.

I visited Aston Gardens last year and was very impressed. The apartments give you the feel of independence that makes the residence feel comfortable. They have a very nice dining area that gives the feel of a nice restaurant more than a cafeteria. All the staff members that I encountered were very friendly and sincere. I work at a local hospital and have spoken with many residence and they speak very highly of this facility. I found it to be very clean with very cool Mediterranean architecture. There was a very nice pool area and several residents were pool side. The layout of this facility makes it very easy to move from one building to the next. There is a real sense of community here. While I was visiting a relative, 2 different people came by to check in since my car didn't look familiar. This made me feel like the place was very safe. They also had fence (and gate) around the complex and visible security.
