Horizon Bay had been newly renovated, and I loved it. It was bright and airy. The remodeling was terrific. They had really updated it. All of the community rooms just looked great compared to the old décor, so it really made a difference. I felt that my parents would have really liked it. The very first time I visited, I was impressed with it. That's why when my parents actually agreed to move from Arizona over here to Georgia area, that was where I had in mind to move them; however, my parents didn't want to move to ALF. They offered a two-bedroom apartment, and that was very important to my parents. It had two bedrooms, a living area, and a little kitchenette with a sink and a small refrigerator. As for their dining facility, the thing that I really liked about it was they had an opportunity for the residents to eat on their own schedules. For example, my parents like to eat their heavy meal at noon; at Horizon Bay, they had a menu plan that allowed them to do that. They had selections so that if another resident wanted to have just a salad for lunch, they could have that as well, then have their heavy meal later. So it seemed much more flexible and accommodating for the various different styles of eating. I thought that was really nice.
I saw their activities room, and they had two separate areas. One of them had art supplies, and another one had a large screen TV and lots of equipment like that. They had chair exercises and games. They had puzzles sitting out that were in progress. They also had something lovely along the north side of the facility. There was a dining room there that was virtually all windows. It looked out to landscapes. They had deer coming, and they would feed the deer daily, so they have that wildlife that people can enjoy. The staff was very friendly. They were so courteous to the residents, and they would always call them by name. If and when I ever need my parents to come back here, that is definitely a place I would look at again.
