Independent Living Reviews for Tallgrass Creek

I visited this facility

I toured Tallgrass Creek. It was a good experience. I like it very much. It was very clean, very up-to-date, very modern and very nice. All the apartments had washers and dryers in them. However, as far as cleaning services, you had to pay extra to get that. I liked the location. They had nice facilities. They had a pool and a gym area, which I like. The dining area was very nice.

Don’t let your loved ones live at Tallgrass Creek! They placed my 84 year old mom in an ambulance in the middle of the night, barely conscious, and never called any of her family, living minutes away and fully active in her life. She spent hours in the ER and ICU by herself. I still anguish over this.

Tallgrass Creek was good. It was OK, but it was probably not one I would choose for my dad. It's a great place, but it is not what we would be looking for. The rooms are apartments, and they're meant very much for independent living. They're pretty typical of an apartment.

Tallgrass Creek has a nice layout and a very nice complex of buildings. The people working there were very intelligent, very welcoming, and very easy to get along with. The food was exceptional, and the chef was very good. They had group meals and all kinds of activities, like cards, exercising, and a pool. The rooms were very modern and pretty open. However, they have a very long wait list.

I would not have any complaints about Tallgrass Creek other than the location, which was not good for us. We did not see anyone unhappy.

We were greeted very warmly at Tallgrass Creek. They gave time and were very willing to work with us for my mother. Everything was very nice, new, and clean. You have to pay for house cleaning, but there is laundry in every apartment. My mom said she felt like she is at home. It was a really a beautiful thing for us.

We visited Tallgrass Creek. The place was beautiful, but it didn't provide the services that we need. It was a wonderful place. If you want to live in congregate living, it would be fine. It is nearly new, and it is four years old, so everything about it has a very upscale, updated atmosphere about it. It is also probably one of the most expensive in the area, and consequently there were all types of details in their unit that you wouldn't necessarily find in moderately priced facilities.

We chose Tallgrass Creek because of the location, amenities, and pricing. The staff was very helpful, well-trained, and competent. The rooms are very modern and up-to-date and were more spacious than the others we visited. The dining room was comparable to other facilities.

My family's experience with this facility has not been that great. It doesn't seem like they talk to each other or are ever on the same page. One associate will say A, another will say B and it turns out C is actually the truth. The administrative staff is also a bit unprofessional and in my opinion only concerned with money. They don't speak to you much or smile outside of discussing cost related details. The same is true for the social workers, which is surprising. Overall I was pretty disappointed because we really did expect a lot from this facility .

I toured Tallgrass Creek and felt that it exemplified luxury. They had everything in one place including clinics, doctors, shopping, and banks. The rooms were fabulous and beautiful. The staff was just fabulous, too, and answered any question. They had a gorgeous luncheon and a grocery store, restaurant, coffee shop, game room, computer room, hot tub, small pool and an exercise pool, spa, and indoor and outdoor fitness centers.

My mother-in-law is in Tallgrass Creek. It is quite unique, and it is very nice. They have a clinic, which is sufficient. They have nurses and social workers. They have a multitude of activities. The food is excellent. They have walking trails and transportation. It is actually one of the topnotch facilities in the Kansas City area. They have a huge indoor swimming pool, a gym, a library, and a little convenience store.

The staff at Tallgrass Creek was very accommodating, pleasant, and helpful. They offer organized activities by groups or individually. They also offer transportation that takes you to concerts and shopping malls. They have adequate parking for your own car if you want to take it there. It’s a gated community, and you have to check in at the gate. You also have to check in at the lobby, and they will ask you who you want to see, so I think it is secure. We were able to eat there, and their dining area is very well maintained and very clean. The food was good.

We had my father in another facility named Tallgrass Creek. He was in rehab there for maybe three weeks. Their therapist is good, but the therapists only see the patients for maybe half an hour a day or an hour a day. They just did not have a good system partly because they are newer, and they have not worked out all their kinks yet. I just think their sights are on maybe the wrong priorities. We get promised a lot of stuff at the front end when you are looking at the place, but then it isn’t delivered very well, and it was just stressful for me to have my dad at Tallgrass Creek.

The one that we went to recently is Tallgrass. It was fairly close. The proximity was a good thing. It's fairly new, so it's very clean. It has a nice exercise room and pool. The people seemed to be a lot more active and lively. My parents are probably more active than some of the other seniors. It seemed like there was a lot going on, and that was appealing. There were some good-sized apartments. They have a 2-bedroom townhome. It's a little more expensive because you have a buy-in there. We were very impressed with the lady who took us around on a tour. The people we met were very nice. It's a very nice facility.
