Assisted Living Reviews for The Villas at St. James

December 05, 2020

I visited this facility

We saw an apartment at The Villas at St. James in person and we saw the rest of the place virtually. The people or staff are very caring, but the apartment was very dated. It sort of reminded me of an old hotel. It needed some updates, it needed paint, it really needed some cosmetic works, and I wouldn't have moved my parents there without some updates. The community itself looked loving and caring and I'm sure it's fine. The virtual tour was beautiful, but the in-person tour I would say that the apartments are set up well, they're just dated. We saw the highest-end apartment that they had, and I wouldn't move my parents in there. They have activities like bingo and things of that nature or outings. The woman that showed us the apartment didn't really know anything because the woman who was supposed to show it to us was sick that day. So a nurse or somebody showed us the apartment and couldn't really tell us very much.

I visited this facility

I toured the Villas at St. James. I loved it, and it’s perfect for me to move in when the time comes. They go places, I’ve seen them exercising, they’ve got different activities, and these I love to do, activities and go places. The rooms were so nice, you opened up the door and there’s a patio outside, and I really liked it. They’re perfect for me. The shower was a walk-in, I can sit on a chair if I want to take a bath, and it was really nice. It’s got a beauty salon, they’ve got laundry and housekeeping, and it’s beautiful.

The grounds are very nice, in good shape, and maintained very well. The location of the community is good and in a nice and quiet area. The rooms are nice, spacious, and up-to-date and laid out nicely. My mother likes it very much. They offer a lot of extra service without upcharges.
