I am a friend or relative of a resident

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.

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.

I visited this facility

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.

Cynthia, Thank you so much for taking the time to give us feedback regarding your recent tour of Garnett Place. It was great to read that you found our staff and residents to be friendly and pleasant, as we pride ourselves in being just like family. When you are free, we would love for you to join us again for a meal or activity. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do or any questions we can answer!

I visited this facility

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.
