Independent Living Reviews for Southside Gardens Assisted Living Center

I visited this facility

I’ve been to Southside Gardens, and it’s very nice. The apartments are very bright and very inviting. The people I talked to were very professional and very nice. The facilities were extremely clean, and the residents seemed happy. It’s in a very good neighborhood, and a lot of things are close by that make it convenient for people that live there.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I am in the independent-living part Southside Gardens. It is a nice place. They serve two meals a day. If you want a third meal, you have to pay a little extra money for it. The food is pretty good. Today, we have a Thanksgiving dinner for all the patrons and residents. The staff are very friendly. I am occupying a one-bedroom apartment. I have a big living room, a dining room, and a very large bedroom. My bathroom has a bathtub and shower, and there are handles all over so that we do not slip. The kitchen is small, but it has everything in it -- a stove, a refrigerator, and a dishwasher. The people here are nice; I have not met a grumpy person yet. They provide me transportation wherever I want to go. They have a bus, and if we want to go to the casino, they take us all to the casino. Every Saturday, they take us to Walmart.
