I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My aunt moved to Garnett Place Retirement Community and it is a wonderful place. It was completely redone and it is well staffed. They are very caring and well qualified. The residents are very happy, too, and well taken care of. The amenities are wonderful. I can't say enough good things about it, and it is very competitively priced. Their policy is that they ask that the residents to pay the first two years of being there, and if they should run out of funds after the first two years, then they can go on Title 19. In other words, they won't throw them out if they have to go on Title 19. So, they provide excellent care. They also have an exercise room, several really nice activities rooms, and a beautiful dining room. I think it's just great. My aunt's apartment has a washer-dryer hooked up as well.

Overall, the staff at Garnett Place was friendly. The residents had smiles on their faces and seemed content. The room that we looked at had been recently upgraded. It was newly painted and had a new carpet. I just didn't care for the dining area. It needed some facelift, and when you walked into the main lobby of the facility, there was an odor. It wasn't like urine or anything like that. So, that turned us off, but the lady did a great job. She covered everything so that by the time we finished the tour, we had no questions. She was very, very organized and a good communicator. They had nice outdoor spaces, too.

We went to Garnett Place Retirement Community and toured it. I liked what they had to offer for independent living. My mom could have been in something that was like a townhouse, which was really nice. I like the idea that she'd have more of a home than an apartment. It didn't offer everything all the way through skilled nursing. We didn't want to have to keep moving her. In terms of activities, it seemed like they had some nice stuff. She'll have her own laundry and her own garage. Her going from her big old house into a townhouse was what was most appealing to me in going into that place. We only met with one person, and she was fine and very thorough.

Provider Response

Thank you for touring with us, Tammy! We are always happy to hear that you had a great experience, even if you did not choose Garnett Place for your mom's new residence. If we can ever be of assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to reach out!

We saw Garnett Place Retirement Community. We got to see a room. It was a nice size. My mother liked it. We visited the cafeteria, the rec room, or activities room. We thought the people there were incredibly friendly. It just looked like everything ran very well. The person who greeted us was very kind and friendly, as well as the person who showed us around. I think she was the marketing director, we really liked her a lot. The facility was beautiful. It was well kept. It was really close to where my mom lives, so it was a nice location. We didn't have any complaints about it at all, except how we were gonna pay for it.

Provider Response

Hello Nancy- Thank you for the very kind feedback from your tour! It is wonderful to hear that you had such a positive experience.

I didn't realize Garnett Place was as big as it was. It had a small-town feel to it, even though it was a larger facility. It's going through some maintenance right now. The lobby has been redone, and they're working through the rest of the area. The staff did an excellent job. In some other places though, some of the staff would come up and just kind of chat with me. Garnett was one place where I didn't see a lot of staff, and no one else really came up and chatted with me at all. The facility is a little bit hard to rate because they are going through that maintenance. If they do the same thing that they're doing in the lobby area, I think it's going to be very, very nice.

Provider Response

We went to Garnett Place Retirement Community and we liked it. It was very homey. They already had jigsaw puzzles out. The areas we saw were a little older, but it was still inviting. The people were so nice, but we didn't really see a whole lot of residents. It had very small dining rooms with many different dining rooms spread out, and you go to the dining room that your room is closest to. The food smelled delicious. The guy in charge of maintenance showed us around, but he knew everything. He never said, "I have to look into that". He had been there three or four years, and it was impressive. They had a library, a greeting card area with a whole bunch of greeting cards, birthday cards, sympathy cards, Easter cards, you name it. If there's a card made for it, they were all there on display. Any resident can have any one of those cards free of charge if they want to send it to someone.

Garnett Place was back in a little wooded area, and they had an enclosed courtyard that's fenced in. There's a memory center on the lower level, so they had a safe place for them to be outside. It's surrounded by a neighborhood. It's got businesses on one side, and then there were trees in between, and the rest of the sides were homes, which was very nice. We really liked it. The staff who showed us around was very efficient and very nice. The ladies get their nails painted, and they had a card club. The people were enjoying their meals in the dining area. Everything looked fine. The rooms were varied. The studio had a bedroom and a bathroom just off from the living room, and it was good sized. They weren't just tiny little cramped areas. It's some place I wouldn't worry about having my loved ones stay in. It's decorated with color inside, not just blank white.

Thank you for your review of Garnett Place. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit!

The people at Garnett Place Retirement Community were really nice. The lady that gave us the tour was super friendly and she had us sit down and eat a Thanksgiving meal with them. It was delicious. She was really knowledgeable and very nice. The room was a little old and a little outdated, but it was spacious, nice, felt warm, cozy, and homey.

I toured Garnett Place Retirement Community, and it was very welcoming, clean, and very friendly. It was a bit more difficult to get around since it has multiple floors, and you would need to take the elevator. The staff member was helpful, showed me the rooms, it was a very nice place, and that would have been my top choice. The menu looked good, and there were choices, however, it was a bit more expensive than other places.

Provider Response

Carol, Thank you so much for sharing your experience at Garnett Place. We're so happy to hear that you found our community to be clean and welcoming, as well as our staff to be friendly.

I really liked Garnett Place Retirement Community. It had ramps and was convenient for wheelchairs. The place was nice and luxurious. The rooms were big enough with full-sized beds. The staff was excellent. The location was close to everything and they had a bus to take residents to doctors' appointments.

Garnett Place was awesome and very clean. It has independent, assisted and memory care. They cook good meals, they have tons of activities in house, and they’ve got an awesome guy that drives a van and takes them places. They’re pretty comprehensive. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. She has good days and bad days. The price is very reasonable.

The people at Garnett Place were wonderful. What they offered to let me do was, at no cost, stay with my mom up to three or four months and eat their food until she got used to it. I thought that was wonderful. The food was great. The people were outstanding. The lady there was so nice. The room was too big in my opinion, and it had a stove, which I wasn't sure I wanted that in the room because of her memory issues. The room was beautiful and had bedroom, a living area, and a patio. They had basically the same activities as other places, like a garden and trivia and "fill in the blanks" games.

Provider Response

I visited the Garnett Place. The rooms were very nice. We saw the independent and the assisted living sections and had a good lunch with them and met the chef. The person who is in charge of the marketing was very nice. The staff was very helpful. We like the place a lot, but they don’t have an actual nursing home facility connected to the place.

Garnett Place was OK. It was an older building, but other than that, it was more than sufficient. There was an activity room for doing puzzles or watching TV. The dining area was fine.

Garnett Place is very good. The staff is nice and very informative. They took us all over and showed us everything. We haven't had any complaints since my mother moved in there. We like the rooms. We had to put her in the memory wing, which was the only place we found that was similar to her apartment before. I have eaten there and don't have any complaints about the food. They have lots of activities, but my mother’s memory is bad. If she participates, she does not remember. They have bingo and all kinds of activities for the patients.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Garnett Place Retirement Community. Your kind words are so appreciated and we will be sure to share with our staff. Also, we would love the opportunity to talk to you more about our Smile Program that allows family members to see what their loved ones are up to on a daily basis. From activities and events to outings and parties, you would be able to see photos, share messages and view activity participation charts for your loved one. This is a great way we help "fill the gaps" in our residents' memories. Again, thank you and we feel very privileged to care for your mother at Garnett Place.

The staff at Garnett Place Retirement were wonderful and very informative, very patient. One of the things that impressed us was how residents are just walking around, and everybody seemed to know their names and interacted with them. It was a very nice place. The rooms were okay. The price was competitive with the other facilities. They have activities both in and out of the facility. Outside, there was a garden where the residents could plant vegetables and flowers. They have the usual crafts and things. The dining area was a very nice facility. We were impressed with the menu they offer for the residents.

Provider Response

We got a reservation to put my mom in Garnett Place. We like the overall set-up of it. The apartments are nice size. Where her apartment will be is close to the lunch room, and there is a nice little sitting area outside. The staff is very friendly. The girl that we met with a couple of times was always very receptive and very cooperative in answering any questions. The only drawback to me was where it is located. It was a little dark, but other than that, it was very nice.

The only reason I decided not in Garnett Place was because it is different levels. There’s an elevator, but there are a lot of steps also and I just thought it was confusing to me and to my husband. I thought it would be hard for my husband to get around and to keep track of where he was. The rooms were nice. The ones we looked at were either 1- or 2-bedroom. You had your living room area and a kitchenette that didn’t have a stove but they had a microwave, a refrigerator, a sink, and a full bath.
