Assisted Living Reviews for Courtyard Estates at Hawthorne Crossing

November 29, 2014

By Dan30

I visited this facility

We went to Courtyard Estates and checked everything out. It seemed to be good, so we just went with that. Regarding their rooms, I wouldn't call them spacious, but they're very adequate and very nice. I think all of the staff did a very good job.
Provider Response

Thank you for your response and welcome to Courtyard Estates! Thank you for noticing that we have a highly trained and compassionate staff that provides excellent high quality care everyday! Our apartment sizes vary based on what we have available so if you are interested in something more spacious I would love the opportunity to visit with you soon to see how we can accommodate that at either of the Courtyard Estates Communities. If there is anything you need please do not hesitate to contact directly the Manager of the communities Nick Lensch at 515.240.9013 or you may contact me Renee' LePera at rlepera@seniorhousingcompanies.com. Thanks again for taking time to post a review, it is appreciated! Renee' LePera Community Relations Manager Senior Housing Companies 515.577.0695
