Assisted Living Reviews for Parkview Home of Freeport

June 10, 2016

I visited this facility

The lady at Parkview Home of Freeport was very professional. She knew her stuff and explained everything in great deal. The home was very nice but because it's been added on to so many times, it became a little confusing getting around in the community. They had a nice range of activities, like card games, a workshop for the men to tinker in, scrapbooking, and a lot of things like that. They had a bus that takes them for rides and dinner out once or twice a week, and I was happy with that. They had a skilled nursing attached right to it.

I am a friend or relative of resident

My mother has been a resident for approximately 11 yrs and she is very satisfied with Parkview Home. She started out in one of the duplex units and eventually moved into an Independent Living unit in the main building. The staff is very professional and friendly. They especially have been very helpful with her special interests in plants and landscaping. She likes the menu choices in the dining room and they accommodate with any special requests. She likes to eat very healthy foods and she is very satisfied. We think it is an excellent and well run facility at a reasonable price.
Provider Response

Thank you John for your kind words. It is a pleasure to have your mother as a resident here at Parkview. She is a joy and an inspiration to us all!
