Assisted Living Reviews for Golden Pond Communities

I visited this facility

The place looked nice and very clean, although outdated. The residents all seemed friendly and content. Lost out on two stars because the woman who showed us around wasn't exactly the brightest bulb in the box and was far too interested in gossip for my liking. I'd rather my dad not live in a place where the first employees we meet are unprofessional drama queens.

The rooms are smaller at Golden Pond Communities, but it looks like the care is as good. The person who showed me through was very knowledgeable. It’s an older facility, but it looks like it has been taken care of.

I fell in love with Golden Pond, while visiting. looking for a homey facility for my sister. The clients were very happy. The staff were extremely loving, kind and compassionate. I needed respite care soon after visiting. My sister stayed there for five days. she loved it. The food was excellent. She could select foods she liked & she had homemade hot bread every morning. Shes was treated with love & kindness. The facility is absolutely clean & as if one would have there own little apartment. They are also pet friendly. Super place to live and enjoy for the rest of ones life. My sister would like to move there soon, God willing. Nan Biddy, Clermont resident,

We looked at Golden Pond for my father. They have significant acreage there. They were all single floors, which was nice. They have no vacancy, but I like this community. It was clean. It wasn’t as new as the other facility but it looked very modern and it seemed like it was well managed. They had nice rooms. They were nice size, and I also like the bathrooms and the amenities that came in, they were very nice.

Golden Pond Communities was nice. The thing I was disappointed about was the person we had an appointment with wasn’t there. The supervisor, who was very new, took care of us, but she was new, so she didn’t know everything. But the facility was beautiful. The dining area was nice. Everybody seemed to be having a good time. One of the residents we talked to said she enjoyed living there. Their rates were very expensive, but the rooms were beautiful. Everything looked clean. I was definitely impressed.

My brother was at Golden Pond Communities for about 6 weeks. It was not secure. He would walk out, catch a bus, and be gone all day. It was a beautiful facility, and the food was fantastic. They were extremely well staffed, and they had a psychiatrist that came. It was just not a fit for him.

My father has been a resident for 6 years and has been cared for very well by the staff! I appreciate their patience and the encouragement they give him! Whenever I visit or call I'm always welcomed and informed of any concerns or changes in his condition. I have nothing but praise for his caregivers, the facilities, & the activities. Most important, Dad's content (even likes the food) and that's what really matters. Kudos to all the angels there!

This facility management only cares about the profits and not the residents or staff. They move medicade residents out of their apartments without their permissions if they can make more money from private pay residents. Corporate who runs the facility from another state and has no idea how this facility is being run and pops in occasionally for a couple hours. This place is all about profit and not about their residents. Check out some of some of the other local facilities in the area as we have. We took our loved one out of this facility and are sooo happy we did. Hope this helps.

We visited Golden Pond Communities, and I must say that they have a very nice and beautiful community. All the residents looks well taken care of and they are having a great time enjoying all their friends in the community. The people are always smiling and it felt a happy community. They have a beautiful and big yard. It's great for fun activities. It's a home-like environment. I would definitely recommend Golden Pond Communities to others.

My loved one stayed here

I found Golden Pond to be the best place for my mom. She kept her independence for as long as she could. She fell in love with her caregivers. She got a new lease on life when she moved in.
