Independent Living Reviews for Heatherwood Senior Living

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We placed dad at Heatherwood Retirement Community four months earlier, not really realizing how quickly he as declining, so it was pretty obvious around the second month that he was in the wrong place. However, I would say they were fantastic. Everybody loved the staff. They had lots of activities. Insofar as a retirement, they were not upscale because they were on the lower end of the price range, so they were not really fancy. The building was older and so on, but those things I don't really consider important. I thought he would have been happy there had he gone like a year earlier. The room was nice, clean, and freshly painted. He was in a studio which was the smallest room that they offered. They also had one bedroom and two bedroom units for more money. He had a fairly large room with a small kitchenette, a small closet, and a large bathroom. They had lots of music and people coming in performing for the group. More than once a week, they had a group talk where someone would be leading a conversation, and other people would be part of it. They had bingo, games, and they also had outdoor activities where you could sign up and go to a movies, go swimming, go outside the community and do things with other members on a bus that they had. My dad complained a lot about the food, and I attempted to eat one meal. I would say 50% of their food was wonderful, but they had specific things that were good, and a lot of the other foods I would say were subpar like the chicken was really dry or the steak was hard to cut. For a picky eater, it was not a good place.

I visited this facility

Heatherwood was nice and clean. They have a private bathroom. I don't think they had a kitchen in there because you eat down in the main lunchroom three times a day, but I think there's a little place where you make coffee in each room. The dining area was a like a restaurant. It was more open and good-looking food. I probably would get involved in a couple of activities, like card-playing and pool shooting. They have outings on the bus.
