Assisted Living Reviews for Sedgwick Plaza

I visited this facility

Sedgwick Plaza was pretty nice. The staff member very helpful and very informative during the tour. I saw a studio and it was kind of small. There was a library, an arts and crafts room, a room which they use as a chapel, and a room for Bingo. The dining hall is open 24-hours a day. It has high back chairs with wheels on them and it's restaurant-style. They bring the meals to you and you can order specific things off a menu. It has two elevators and a fitness room. It's a high-rise three-story building.

If you are looking, don't miss out on this diamond in the rough. Our dad lives at Sedgwick Plaza and we couldn't be happier. We moved him last year and although he wasn't "quiet" ready, we knew he couldn't be at home any longer. His quality of life was dwindling from last of socialization and he wasn't eating right. Misty was kind and caring and took time to coach us through the hard stuff. She gave us as much time as we needed and helped to put the puzzle pieces together in what we thought would be an overwhelming situation. Dad couldn't be happier. We toured many other communities and although they were newer, the atmosphere didn't have the same warm, friendly welcome that Sedgwick Plaza did. The family atmosphere, caring staff and very welcoming residents (they love to visit) makes this community feel like home. Residents and staff make you feel like you are family when you first come in the door. We would recommend if you are looking to give them a call, you'll be happy you did.

We got here in Sedgwick Plaza in Halloween of 2012, and I am very satisfied. It's great, and I just downsized to a small place when my wife moved out. It's three stories, and I'm in a one-bedroom apartment, which is nicely sized. They have different sizes. They have two bedrooms also, and that's what we had when my wife was here. The food is good; there are three meals a day. They have a movie every night, and it's free. They have a lot of activities, a lot of professional music groups and individuals come in, they play the piano, violin, and most of them sing. They have an exercise program. I went into an exercise class in the morning, they had a woman leading it, and I found out later she was 93 years old, which was mostly movement, not lifting weights or dancing. It lasts probably 25 minutes, six days a week. The rent, I really can't compare that; it's no higher than the others because I wouldn't be here if it was. I was talking to a gentleman the other day; he is 95 years old, and he has been here 22 years. What stands out is the attitude of the people that are here; they all like it, and the staff really works closely to please everybody.

My parents moved to Sedgwick Plaza summer of 2006 after my mom had a major stroke. They found it to be clean, comfortable and welcoming. Residents and staff were eager to help them get settled in and involved in activities. Meals were good and the staff was so caring. Eventually they moved to the Assisted Living wing where mom received excellent and attentive care. Even after mom passed away in 2010, dad stayed on, as he felt they were his Wichita family. He lived there until he passed away in 2014 and was an enthusiastic supporter of Sedgwick Plaza the whole time. As a family member, I was so thankful that they were safe, cared for and happy. Sedgwick Plaza is a beautifully decorated and comfortable residence, and I can't say enough about the wonderful staff.

So far, everything at Sedgwick Plaza is fine. The staff is nice and the food is really good. However, maintenance service sucks. There have been a couple of things that have been broken and they didn't come for a few days. Mom didn't get to take a shower for five days. They have a library, games and movies but they could improve on the maintenance.

This is a lovely assisted living complex in northeast Wichita, off of busy Woodlawn. It is pricey, but provides solid support for those needing some assistance with activitirs of daily living, housekeeping, meals and transportation. The apartments are spacious and there is ambiance in the complex and grounds. The staff work hard to keep an eye out for those changes that might indicate a higher level of care is needed. It is a friendly community. There are tiers of services available dependent upon resident needs. Also, a home health agency is stationed at the complex for those that need additional medical support like setting up medications or reminders to take meds. Ground security is good and there is an active social schedule.

This was a very clean center. They were very friendly to my relative, and had tons of activities for him to do. The people that worked there helped me with all my questions, and helped my relative do his every day tasks with care and ease. I highly recommend this facility. Every day they have him do a few activities such as crosswords and puzzles and they let others make jewelery. His only complaint is about the staff sometimes seeming to ignore his requests. I don't know the specifics because I cannot be there all the time but in his opinion they don't pay enough attention to him some days, but most of the time he's fine with what goes on. I have also heard this from some of his friends there, so maybe they need to spend a little more time attending to their clients but like I said I don't stay there so I have no idea what's going on.
