Independent Living Reviews for Washington Commons

October 10, 2020

We really enjoyed our visit at Washington Commons. It's in a safe location and the resident all seem to enjoy living there. The residents have 3 meals a day and the rooms were very spacious. We like this community because it seemed bright and the residents all seemed to be fairly active. The residents also are allowed to come and go compared to other places in the area we looked at. We plan to move mom in end of month and we are very grateful for all the help we have received during this transition. Thank you Barbara, Matt, Michelle and all the staff.

My mother moved into Washington Commons. I really like it, and my mother really likes it. They serve three meals a day, and they're very timely with those meals because she's a diabetic and she has to eat her meals at certain times of the day. They have nice washers and dryers, they have a nice laundry room, it's clean, and there's no smell. The employees that work there are very friendly. The first day we moved her in the first thing they said to us was, "Make sure you wear your mask." They have a nice walk-in area too. They have a sidewalk that goes all the way around the building, and if you do one complete lap it's one mile. There's a lot of seniors that live there, the apartment she's in is not very big, but it's not very small. I like it.

Washington Commons is outstanding. It is an excellent community. The staff is wonderful. Matt was excellent. He even paired us with a resident ambassador. The whole experience was outstanding. We were very impressed by what they provide. We were looking for a one-bedroom apartment; it was lacking a little bit of closet space, but everything else looked wonderful. The place was very clean. The dining area was very nice, and it was like a restaurant with waiters.

I toured Washington Commons. It was really nice, the people seemed nice, there was a lot of activity in the evening, and the people were out taking to each other. The staff has been very nice, patient, and informative. The room had just been vacated, so it was not fixed up, but it was nice. The dining area was really nice and the food seemed OK. We looked at the menu.

Washington Commons was very nice, but they did not have a kitchen. They provide three meals a day, and the food was good. The staff was very nice, very polite, and very informed. They offered laundry, housekeeping, meals, and security. The facility was very pretty and very nice. The food was OK, not the best.

Washington Commons is a fabulous place with a tremendous activities schedule. My daughter ate there, and she said it's fabulous how they take care of their guests. I would rate the staff a 5. A place is a place, but a home is a home, and the staff is what makes it not just a place but a home. They have all the facilities as well.

My father has been living at Washington Commons since January of this year. The first month or two were difficult for us as he got used to the new surroundings and they got used to him. However, he absolutely loves it there now and is genuinely happy. When I pick him up for events or dinners at my house, he is always ready to go home to Washington Commons which is a huge comfort to me. He has a one bedroom apartment on the third floor which is the perfect size for him. The bathroom is a good size with a shower that is easy to get in and out of without difficulty. There are two large hallway closets just outside of the bathroom. The living area is a great size with an open concept for the small dining area and kitchen area. None of the rooms have stoves/ovens but all have a full size fridge, small sink, and counter area. There is room for a table and chairs as well as a full living room set. The bedroom is huge and has room for a full bedroom set and desk plus extras. Housekeeping is provided on a weekly basis and they do a very good job of keeping the apartment and the building very clean. They are also part of the friendly ambiance of the community. Cable and all utilities are included with the rent. Additionally, there are three meals in the dining room prepared by an onsite chef. I think the food is delicious and have often eaten a meal with my father when visiting him. My understanding from the other residents is that they would like a little more variety but I believe that would be a challenge even in the best of circumstances. There are daily activities and outings on a daily basis which helps to keep the residents busy and involved. My father does complain that there is not enough to do but I honestly think is because he has so much free time on his hands now with little to fill it. When living at my house, he literally had nothing to do all day. Now he does and is one of the reasons why I believe he loves it at Washington Commons. The staff including everyone from housekeeping to management are what make the place an excellent and welcoming place to live. All have different personalities and interact differently with the residents but all are positive, welcoming, helpful, and professional. Matt, David and Dawn from management each have gone above and beyond in multiple different ways to make sure that the residents are comfortable and happy.

Washington Commons would be a good place for my mom but not for my dad. The 2-bedroom unit was very nice and really big. The whole place was large. The person who contacted me and assisted me was super nice. There was a large and nice dining room, and they serve an appetizer, the main entree, and then the dessert. The place looked clean, and it would be a good place for a more independent living person.

Washington Commons was very nice, and we liked it. It's independent living but too expensive for us at this time. The staff was very nice. We didn't have a bad experience. The grounds and location were very nice. The only downfall is if the senior is a driver, there isn't a red light when you exit the location, and it's on an extremely busy road, especially for making a left turn. We saw different-sized one- and two-bedrooms that were all very nice. My aunt was very happy there.

Provider Response

I liked Washington Commons a lot. I was shown a small room where you could put a twin bed, a reclining chair, and a chest, and it had a balcony with a view of the garden. I also saw a one-bedroom apartment with a nice-sized bedroom, living area, and little kitchen. Every day, there were a lot of activities to do, and they had a bus that would take you shopping. The place was very active.

The person that we talked to at Washington Commons was extremely nice. It was a place that I would like to go. There was only 1 apartment with 2 bedrooms and a kitchen. The other rooms had a kitchenette with a sink and a microwave oven; that’s it. We are not allowed to use a stove, and that turned us off. But the place was very nice and very pleasant. We had lunch there, and the food was very good. I think they should have more apartments where the residents could cook.

My father is at Washington Commons. The lady that I was working with was excellent. I am pretty pleased. The price is low and definitely available. It’s clean. The washer and dryer are free of charge, and they have everything that you could think of. It’s an excellent place for retirees. They have something every day.

It was very good, but my mother needs a little more care than what they can provide at Washington Commons. The staff was nice, very knowledgeable, and very professional. I had a very good tour of the place, but unfortunately it was just nothing that my mother would fit into. The dining area was very nice.

Washington Commons was a beautiful place but large. They had all kinds of activities every day, like bingo and outside activities. They served all three meals, had laundry services, and had somebody that did hair. They had somebody that came in to help them with their medical needs and transportation to places that you might need to go.

Washington Commons was excellent. We had a good visit. The lady that showed us around was charming and told us everything that we needed to know. Their apartments were wonderful, nice, and big. We visited one of the ladies there, and her apartment was very charming and as nice as could be. We really enjoyed our visit.

I went to Washington Commons, and I thought it was very good. I was impressed with the facility. I didn’t think the costs were outrageous for what they offered. So all in all, I was satisfied with the visit. It is just that we are not ready to make that kind of commitment right now. I just wanted to see what options were out there. All I saw was the model room and the common areas, and I thought they were spacious, clean, and looked efficient and well-maintained. There was some maintenance going on when we were there, but they cleaned it all away, which was not a big deal for something I would expect as common routine stuff; they were working on the AC at that time. I spoke with, I guess, the new managers, both the husband wife, and they seemed knowledgeable and caring. I had no objections. For what it was, it was fine. They had a little concert that was going on when we were there. I have not tried the food; my dad didn’t want to, and we haven’t gone back. They have, on more than one occasion, invited us back to taste the food. I would give it a 4 four just because I don’t know what else is out there. I liked their list of activities. My dad did not, and it would have been for him, so, therefore, that to me is saying,” OK, maybe there is something that’s missing here.” But I liked the fact that they were trying to keep everybody engaged and social. I think that it is going to be my biggest problem with my father -- he is retreating more and more into himself. But that is one thing that I did like about it, that there was a social activity. There was camaraderie amongst the patrons there.

Everything is very nice at Washington Commons. They have their own chef, and the food is very good. They have tons of activities like bingo and exercise. I don’t know anything for them to improve on, but I would recommend them.

Washington Commons is a very nice place, and that is what I have selected. What I like best about it is you don't have to buy the apartment or the house; you rent it. As for the staff, it is impossible to make any observation from one visit. You cannot say anything about the food because one meal doesn't give you an idea. You would have to have breakfast, lunch, and dinner and have it several times. I'm a gourmet cook, so I'm not easily pleased. I would not be interested in the rooms because none of the rooms have any cooking facility. As I said, I'm a gourmet cook, and I want to continue doing some of the cooking for myself. The only place I can take is one of the villages. For improvement, they could use an apartment with a good kitchen, but there is no such thing, and you have to get one of their cottages in order to have any kind of kitchen facility; those are very limited. If anyone is in the same condition as I am in, then I would most certainly recommend it.

Provider Response

They didn't have a kitchen in Washington Commons. It's a nice place, but I like my own little stove and refrigerator. The staff did a good job. They tried to show me stuff that they had, but it's just not for me. You would go down to eat in their dining area. The rooms were really nice, and they had a very beautiful dining area. They had shopping, movie day, and museum day.

The staff of Washington Commons is absolutely wonderful. They do a really good job of taking care of the folks that live there. My dad has his own place, he can come and go as he pleases, and he has kind of a whole community of people. They also serve food three times a day. They offer a variety of activities. There is bingo as well card games going on, and they have outdoor games like once a month. They have something for the whole community to participate in. It is like a big family

I was very impressed with the décor and the spaciousness of the building at Washington Commons and also the people there seemed to be very active and enjoying themselves. It was mainly the location and the building seemed really nice. The people were very friendly as well. They have bingo, they also have get togethers and have cooking demonstrations. They have a lot of different activities. My mom doesn’t really like a lot of activities, but I'm glad that they offered them. She does go down to the dining room and meet her friends for lunch and dinner.

We were extremely pleased with Washington Commons, but my mother-in-law was just too far gone. They wouldn't be able to care for her the way they needed to. The whole place was great. It was very well run. Very nice people; everybody that was there was very professional. A nice room with a refrigerator and balcony and everything you need. They had walking trails, tennis places, and games. They had church there, and they had people doing your hair there. It's a complete facility.

Washington Commons was wonderful, and the people were very helpful. They had studios, one-bedroom apartments, and two-bedroom apartments. They invited me to stay for lunch, and the food was great. The presentation and the service were great. The dining area was very large; it had tables with four people to a table. The staff was excellent and addressed my concerns. They have a lot of activities; nobody would be bored there. If I could afford it, I would be there already.

The staff, from the management team to my mother's housekeeper, is compassionate and attentive. The facility is beautifully maintained. The dining experiences have exceeded my family's expectations. We think of Washington Commons as a cruise ship that is permanently docked. For each meal, there are several delicious and nutritious choices. I eat in the dining room no less than twice a week and look forward each time to what the chef has prepared. The environment is positive and full of life. In the words of my mother, "Everyone is so friendly here!" I would choose this for my own home but I'm not of age yet!

I went to visit Washington Commons and I liked it. It was much better than the other facility that I visited. The staff were very nice, pleasant and accommodating. The efficiency apartments were a little small but the one bedroom apartments were fine. They had one bedroom, living room, nice bathroom, little kitchen area without stoves and some had porches. The dining room looked pleasant and the service was excellent. They served three meals a day for seven days a week. The meals were excellent. They did your sheets and towels, cleaned the unit once a week and laundry was free of charge. There was a workout area, library and an area where you could bring your laptop, and cable was free. There was ample parking space for the residents and there was no pet fee. They did everything for you and my experience was very good.

I went for a visit at Washington Commons and I was impressed with them. When I sell my house that's where I'm going. They have studio room and one bedroom. The staff are very nice. I was able to eat there a few times and the food was very good. I was impressed. They have bingo and card plays. They also go to places like the grocery store or to the doctor. I've talked to a lot of residents there and they were nice. They all seemed to like the place.
