Assisted Living Reviews for Willow Park Assisted Living

January 13, 2019

By Becki

I visited this facility

Willow Park Assisted Living was excellent. It's the first place we toured, and they spent two hours with us and answered a ton of questions. They gave us lots of education, which then made visiting other places quicker and better, she did an outstanding job. They gave us a complete tour of the memory care portion of it as well. The dining area was beautiful. They gave us a calendar of all the various activities. We went on Halloween, but we didn't observe any activities then. A person gets to bring some of their own furnishings in, and the room has a nice layout. It's nice not having any fire hazards as far as cooking. It's a nice place for someone who doesn't want to cook anymore but gets the social aspect.

Dear Becki, Thank you so much for this glowing review! We're thrilled you had such a great experience with us, and we will be sure to share this with our team! Sincerely, Team Willow Park Senior Living.

This is a very good assisted living facility. I would recommend willow park senior living to everyone. The staff is always very professional and polite to their residents. The cooks do a great job preparing and serving the residents as well. Thank you willow park for your great kindness and patience with all your residents.

They're very personable at Willow Park Assisted Living. When I pulled up, they actually had a placard in my parking space that said, "Welcome," with my name on it. They let me meet with some of the residents and staff there, and I also met their chef. The tour was very comprehensive. My mother-in-law may need assisted living in the future and my father-in-law needs memory care, but they made me feel like they understand how to work with that type of situation, and can make my mother-in-law as comfortable as possible. They gave me a cookie, it was fantastic. The chef is a full-on gourmet chef. They rotate the menus every six to eight weeks so the variety of food is really good. Plus, if the residents want anything different, they can cook that for them as well.

We visited Willow Park, but they didn't really have what we needed. We wanted a private room, but they didn't have that type of thing for us. We didn't like the smell in the memory care side. The staff was very efficient and very gracious with us. We saw the activities briefly, and it looked like they had quite a few things going on.

Amazing facility in the heart of Boise. I'very been working in Home Health and Hospice for the past 12 years. If any of the clients I have need an Assisted Living Community I send them to Willow Park. Willow Park has an amazing staff! The food is extremely delicious! If you need a great community for you or a loved one I highly recommend Willow Park.

My mom lived at Willow Park for 16 months.The most kind, compassionate and caring staff in every area of this facility. They have an outstanding activity program with a variety of things for the residents to do. The facility is clean and comfortable with friendly staff, I cannot say enough positive things about Willow Park. I highly recommend this facility!

Willow Park is an unbelievable assisted living facility. My grandmother lived there 15 years ago and now my in laws have lived there for almost a year. (Father in law recently deceased). The staff is unbelievably compassionate and this place feels more like a family than a "facility". I cannot say enough about the people they find to work here. The turnover is low so each person there feels like a friend and treats my in-laws as if they were their own parent/grandparent. Highly, highly recommend!

Willow Park was fairly new, and they kept everything nice and up to date. They have recreation, the staff is friendly, and if you have questions, they get right back to you. The security system is good. However, it was a little high.

Willow Park is a nice place but expensive. The staff was fine. The rooms were big and nice, but they were just expensive.

My father stayed at Willow Park, and it was a very nice place. The food was really good, and the employees were the best. They have a good reputation. He lived there for several years before he passed away. It was very attractive. They had a lot of activities going on. The people there were very happy. They had everything there that you normally would expect for an assisted living. They offered a lot of things for the elderly, transportation, etc. They hosted nice family meals around the holidays. The people that worked there were just about the best and really were nice people. The thing that stood out the most about it was it was so clean.

5 months ago my folks, ages 92 and 94, moved into Willow Park. What a move at that age! Fortunately for us the staff at Willow Park were extraordinary and so very helpful. During these last few months my mother has blossomed into a happier, lovelier and more energetic person. My dad has started to participate in the variety of activities, field trips and social events offered by Willow Park. They are both making new friends among both the residents and staff and generally seem very happy. We have been particularly pleased with how quickly the staff at Willow Park respond to our requests and questions concerning our parents care.

Willow Park was very accommodating, very helpful, very warm, and welcoming. The facility was very attractive, very clean, very nicely kept, and attractively decorated. They have a van or bus they use to take people out to activities, shopping, and all kinds of special events.

I visited this facility

Willow Park was a larger stand alone facility with an in and out staff, larger rooms, and a private bath in each room. It was larger, and it was two floors. Cleanliness was very good. The staff seemed very friendly and on top of things. They have a larger dining facility. They have almost a commercial like kitchen and staff.

I visited this facility

We visited Willow Park, and it was very welcoming. They did the general things -- exercises, games, church worship -- and they would take them out on their bus. It was very well set up and very well cared for. I was extremely impressed with the manager that talked to me; we got along extremely well. We really like the staff and the way they were interacting with the residents. It would've been nice, but it was just not in the budget.

I visited this facility

Willow Park is the first place that I visited. I thought it was OK, and I didn’t have any problem with the place. The lady that I talked to wasn't the friendliest person, which kind of turned me off. My mother-in-law is 95 years old, and we are talking about taking her out of her home. Of course she is going to be oppositional to that. But the all or nothing attitude is not the kind of care I want my mother-in-law to have. I thought it was condescending to view her as behavioral instead of trying to understand her. So that kind of ended that right there. It doesn't matter how good the care is if they are not going to try to understand her or even say there are medications to help with that. There are solutions because I worked with special education; I understand this. But I felt I understood it more than she did. So it wasn't the facility as much as it was the person that turned me off. She told me all of her credentials and how long she has been doing it and how wonderful she is. It really doesn't matter if I don't like her; she can be wonderful to somebody else. The facility looked pleasant, and it smelled OK. It's just the other place is nicer both in facility and staff.

To me, Willow Park Assisted Living & Memory Care was kind of dark. I had a cup of tea that looked fine, and the food smelled really good though. The rooms were small, but a lot of people like that. They were all clean. To me, it just felt too medical.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother-in-law is in Willow Park, and I would recommend it. The staff has been there for a lot of years. The first contact we had was with the lady that has been there for 12 years. She is the administrator from the kitchen staff down to even the nurse’s aides and so forth. I don’t know specifically what their benefit package is but I have been told that they have a pretty good employee package for their employees to try and keep them. So that’s one reason why I think they are maybe a little bit ahead of some others. They treat their residents well, and they are all friendly. It’s just a very pleasant place to be. The atmosphere when you walk in the door is not of a nursing home or assisted living; it’s more of a hotel atmosphere. It has a dining room that you sit and you reserved as if you are in a restaurant so they come up and ask what you want. They have a couple of main entrees for meals, but they also have what they call an anytime menu that if you don’t like what’s being offered for lunch or dinner you can order off any time menu which consists of a loaded big taquito or Caesar salad so that you can find something that you like. I think it is really good as well. I have a friend who is in a different facility that I often compared it to, and I’m not going to say the one that she is in is not good -- it is -- but the other factor of course to consider is cost. Willow Park for the Boise is toward the upper end in cost, and they do not take Medicaid patients, so because of that I think they can afford to be a little better.

I like Willow Park very much. I would have moved there had they had a vacancy. They had individual bungalows for the independent living and that appealed to me. It was just like having your own little house and yet, you're still part of the community and that appealed to me. I like that. The staff was very helpful. They're very good. Food was very good too.

I visited this facility

I walked through Willow Park, and their facility seemed nice, just walking down the hall. It looked clean. I just kind of got in, and the staff was helping someone at the reception desk, and I just acted like I knew where I was going. It might’ve been in the middle of the afternoon, maybe they were napping or something, but there were a few residents, I think, watching TV. I think the living environment was more of a hospital setting. I thought it was kind of dated, but that was probably because of the décor, but I think the older people would’ve liked it. My mom would’ve loved it, but not me. The setting was kind of Victorian; it seemed like kind of mauves and greens. The dining room was a nice, adequate size. The grounds seemed like a nice walk, and there were trees and flower beds.

Willow Park was excellent. The staff and the rooms were also excellent. They had a wide range of activities from physical, to mental, to artistic and interactive.

By Caring77304050

I visited this facility

I really liked the vibe and the staff at Willow Park. I also liked the activities. I thought they were working hard on their food. The downside was again the rooms were small and dated. The grounds were also dated and when you looked outside, there was no particularly new décor. It was kind of just plain squares and didn't have much architecture to it. It was slightly aged but clean.

Willow Park Assisted Living had different levels of care. My parents were in the assisted living area. If the resident had memory problems, they had a transitional program before they went to the locked unit. They met all the staff and did activities with the other residents there and they became comfortable with the area by the time they went there. The place was extremely pet friendly which was really nice since my parents had a big dog. There was a close courtyard where the residents took their dogs for walks and they did not worry about the dirt because someone else picked it up.

Willow Park was a beautiful facility. We happened to be there when they had a little happy hour, and people were enjoying themselves. But it was more than we could afford.

My sisters mother in law was in this facility and they would not keep her blood sugar regulated!! She ended up in the hospital of a blood sugar level of over 750!! it ended up irreversible and was ultimately due to other complications the death of her. She also fell once in her bathroom and was not found until morning time. I can understand if you are younger and more independent this facilty may be fine but if you are older say 80plus or your health is failing this is not the place for your loved one to be for sure!!!

I believe that this assisted living facility was the best for my mother because it has a very attentive professional staff and a lot of room to move around. The outside courtyard provides plenty of outside area for her to move around and socialize with others. The food I have heard is very good and nutritious. Also the rooms a very personalized and accommodating.

Independent Living Reviews for Willow Park Assisted Living

October 31, 2017

By Roberta

I visited this facility

Willow Park was very nice, and very well-maintained. The cottages were large, including the 2-bedroom units we wanted, but these were outside the main building. We wanted a facility inside a building because of the Idaho weather. The food was very good, they're one of the cheapest facilities, but they seemed to be for older residents, and they didn't have a lot of activities.

Get a little help. Get more out of life. Assisted living is just that — assistance. Want to eat in your apartment, but leave the cooking to someone else?

We’re here to make sure that the small stuff doesn’t hamper your desire to get out there and make the most of it.

The level of care available is very flexible and can be customized as you wish. The bottom line? You can count on us to be there for you — just like family.

Describe the overall population of independent living residents at Willow Park Assisted Living. What is their average age? What are their favorite things to do?

Chores? Don’t be silly, chores are for non-retired folks. Okay, after you move in you may have a few chores. You know, like getting together with your friends for a few hours of Canasta. Or some Netflix binge-watching of your favorite show. Or attending a pottery lesson. Or hitting the local golf course for eighteen (or thirty-six) holes. Of course, those may not sound like traditional chores. But just for fun you can pretend they are! It might go something like this: “Hey Betty, want to go do our chores today?” “Sure Doris, let’s take the community bus to the movies to do our chores (snicker).” You can leave the traditional chores to us. That way you can be 100% True Blue to yourself.

What programs or activities does Willow Park Assisted Living offer to keep residents engaged? How does the staff engage residents' long-term memories?

There is still so much to brighten every day. The smell of rosemary. The feel of yarn running through your fingers. The sound of a crowd’s spontaneous laughter. Memory care is at its best when it encourages active experiences. With that in mind, our specially-designed memory care neighborhood promotes safety, security and well-being, while also offering active life-enrichment for those facing Alzheimer’s disease or other related dementias. We’ve named our life-enrichment program Illuminations.™ And it can truly brighten everyone’s day. Illuminations stimulates the senses and reminds each person that he or she is at the heart of a loving community — a kind of extended family, if you will. It helps create feelings of connection — connection to physical surroundings, connection to community, connection with family, and connection to caregivers. It helps the entire family in just about every way imaginable. And we’re here to help in any way we can.
