I am a friend or relative of a resident

We settled with Park West Plaza because they could take care of my mother. They felt that they had the staffing that the others didn't have. They had daily activities, and their food was fine. It's accommodating, and it's got everything we need and the staff's been good so it's all good.

We visited Park West Plaza, and the food was terrible. However, everyone was very nice. In the independent living apartment, you had to walk outside to get to your meals and that was not very convenient. The cleanliness, the dining area, and the rooms were fine, but it wasn’t what my parents wanted.

My parents can stay at Park West Plaza as they decline without having to move them again. The staff is very helpful, and very informative. The facility is nice. The rooms are roomy. I was trying to find something not looking like a nursing home. My parents are in the senior living; they’re just in an apartment.

I guess the most impressive thing right at the top of my head is that at Park West Plaza, they have some individual condo-type units there versus the apartment units. Depending on your needs and requirements, I found that attractive because it was flexible. They also had a pretty decent place to park your vehicle. And the staff was very helpful and organized. The apartments in the main building seemed smaller.

Park West Plaza looked nice, but it was not what we are looking for right now. The independent living and assisted living people ate together in the same dining room. The apartments were nice. They had washers and dryers. They served three meals a day. The staff was very nice.

Park West Plaza was a really nice place. It was very clean and well kept. The people were very nice and courteous. They have cards, games, arts and crafts, movies, and get-togethers. I have nothing bad to say about it; I just can't afford it. However, I would recommend them to others if they can afford it.

I went to Park West Plaza. The assisted living part was really nice. I wasn't really impressed with their memory care part that I saw. It was like a big, old room, and it had rooms off to the side. The people were just sitting in wheelchairs all over the place, and they had tables scattered throughout. The rest of it was OK. The dining room was pretty nice. Their parking for visitors wasn't really good. I had a hard time finding a place to park when I went there. I wouldn't want my dad over there.

I found my visit at Park West Plaza very pleasant. The staff were very kind and seemed too enlighten the residents and make them feel comfortable, while still tending too them at all times making sure they had all the care they needed at all times. The facility was very nice. They have carports for the residents as well as personal private covered patios and even a private family dining area. The apartments are very nice and accomidating as well, being as they have plenty of room, great for those in wheel chairs, there own washer and dryer hookups in there own rooms, own central heat/air control,handicap accesible bathrooms, as well as a complete furnished kitchen including; a dishwasher, fridge, oven, sink with garbage disposal and plenty of counter space. Park West Plaza also provides many services for there residents suck as housekeeping, laundy service, scheduled transportation, and daily excersise programs. They also have emergency staff on hand at all times which is very reassuring.

Located on the far west side of the city, this is a beautiful assisted living campus that is also part of a continuum of care community. The campus has the best of both worlds: it is a natural landscaped retreat that includes a stocked fishing pond and also has the convenience of a good sized city. Nearby is shopping, movies, transportation and hospitals. I love that they allow pets. Food is good and staff is friendly and really caring. Accepts veteran's benefits, but not Medicaid.
