We have selected Mallard Point. For our area, the price was competitive with everyone else. The meals look decent. It has plenty of things to do for my parents. It is a nice, secure place, and that is important. We feel comfortable coming and going out of there. Also, my parents can go outside and just enjoy being outside.

Mallard Point is no place I’d want to live. For one thing, I didn’t like the food, because I ate there, and I didn’t like how they served it. I didn’t care for the way they treated me when I went there, either. I just don’t have a whole lot of love for the place. I was there at meal time because I was told to be there at 12:30, and we didn’t get our food until 1:30, which is too long for anybody to sit and wait for a meal. And I don’t know what their excuse was because I didn’t care. I wasn’t there to critique them; I just wanted to be there to see how it operated, and I found out.

Provider Response

Hi Visitor147310, we appreciate you taking the time to respond. The staff at Mallard Point take our reviews very seriously, and your feedback is an integral part of that. we appreciate you pointing out it's a nice place, but are very sorry to hear the experience you had. It sounds like we would do better next time to better communicate that folks tend to enjoy arriving a bit early for mealtimes to choose the table they'd like to sit at, drink some coffee, and chat with friends, either old or new. We are so sorry we seem to have missed the mark this time around, but would encourage you to come back and visit anytime - you are always welcome here! Thank you!!

My in-laws lived at Mallard Point, and it was a very nice place. It was five minutes away from us, the staff was pretty decent and caring, and the rooms were very nice. There was no kitchen, but they have the dining hall for the meals. The pricing is a little bit steep.

The sales representative at Mallard Point, Darnell, was excellent. He has a great way with people in general, especially old people, and was very believable. What he said turned out to be true, so that was a plus. The managers were very open, welcoming, and not pushy. They had a lot of accommodations to show my parents around and let them see the inside of the apartments, which were very open, cheerful, and very nice. We were impressed. The location is great. If I had to find one fault, I would say the parking is a little limited. My parents are not social people. They don’t get out a lot, but they have activities there that they have taken part in. They have started to enjoy being drawn out a little bit by different people and things. I think the staff has done a good job at doing that. My parents just moved in last month.

Mallard Point was clean and well lit. I walked in the hallway with the representative, and there was a smell of smoke. I thought I saw one room that had a machine outside it, like it was trying to get rid of the smoke. The people that he addressed as we were making our walk-through all seemed very friendly to him, and him back to them. One lady said she wanted to talk to him, and he said, "I will come back to see you," and he looked at his watch and said a time. So, I was really impressed with that because I was a social worker.

Mallard Point is reasonably priced compared to everywhere else I tried, and you don't have to sign a long-term lease or anything. You can just give 30-day notice and change if you want to. They are very helpful, and they feed you very well and too much. In fact, I have to use some will power. Yes, I would recommend it. They've got a lot of activities. They had a movie yesterday, and they go on shopping trips.

Mallard Point was really neat, and the people there were nice. They had good activities and good meals. The apartments were nice and clean and had plenty of room. They had microwave ovens there, and you had 3 meals; you didn’t really need the kitchen.

The thing that impressed my children about Mallard Point was the fact that if I wanted to go on vacation to where my grandchildren are, if they have a facility like them in that area, I can go to that one and stay for a few days. They have that share thing from state to state, if you want to go visit some place, you can rent or stay in one of their smaller show apartments while you're there. Your family also has that benefit, and they can run for a certain amount of money during the time that they're staying. You can do your own laundry there or they can do it for you. They also have someone come in help you once a week if you need it. You have three meals a day provided for you. You have your choice of one-bedroom or a condo either in the huge facility or separately across from the main eating areas. They also have condos where you can have your own garage if you want to. It's in a really nice area where they have a walking park close by where you can exercise if you want to. They also have a van to take you to your appointments or take you shopping and bring you back. It's very clean and nicely laid out. They have several rooms for exercising, watching movies, pool room, and gaming. They help you move into another apartment where you get complete care if that's what's needed at a later time.

We don’t live too far away from Mallard Point, and we will be going to that facility. We just liked the place where we are going to stay; the apartment has a big living room, two bedrooms, and two baths. They are very nice people, and this is the third year that we’ve gone there. The dining area is nice with new carpets. They can play cards, there are some games like dominos, and they have entertainment usually every Friday or Saturday. This is a really nice place.

I liked the whole setup of Mallard Point. The staff was not unfriendly, but they were just not over the top, so to speak. I didn't really get to check their meals too much, or the things that they have available for activities, but I would say they have a good variety of those kinds of things too. They had a Wii, and they do Wii bowling that they schedule sometimes for tournaments, card games that they get together to play, and jigsaw puzzles that they work on together, and that was kind of impressive. I wasn't there long enough to know if they were understaffed or not, but it does seem like they had less staff.

I couldn't ask for better care for my Mother who has some dementia than what she has at Mallard Point. The food is excellent. The management couldn't be better! She has the feeling of independence, but the safety of the Mallard community! The activities are endless and made for all types of personalities and needs. The nursing staff is also excellent. The facility is very nice!
