Independent Living Reviews for Colonial Gardens Gracious Retirement Living

Colonial Gardens consistently raised the rent, and at the same time, the service level was going down. I didn’t like them. It was a new building, but I would call the staff uncooperative.

I am going to Colonial Gardens Beverly. When I first went there, it seemed overpowering because it was so gorgeous, and I was not expecting that. They have a movie theater there, an exercise room, a gorgeous library, and big couches to sit and be comfortable. I could go on and on, but I mean it is just a beautiful place. I was so overwhelmed that by the time we got through, they were going to show me to the apartment and I was like in a haze; I was just overcome by the whole thing. Most of the apartments were a studio. The one-bedroom was very expensive. They opened the door of the studio, and I just looked; I didn't even want to walk in because it just looked very tiny. I did not even give it a chance, and I walked away. When we got downstairs I apologized to them and I said this place is so beautiful that I just was overcome with it and I have to come back another time and look at it. It was so cozy, and I just loved it. I cannot wait to get up there. I saw people in the computer room using the computers, I saw people in the library reading, I have seen them all at lunch, and the lunch area was beautiful. They were having exercise classes, and that is something I really need. They have classes, trips -- everything. So you are busy all day long if you choose, so what do you need a big apartment for? I just recently found an apartment there, and I loved it. It was one room, but it was a big room with big windows, sunshine, and beautiful carpeting. It was just great. The only drawback is that if you find one that you like, they let you put a deposit on it, and they will hold it for you, but that down payment will only last a month; unless you pay anymore money, it becomes free for anybody else that wants it. So that is what I am not happy about, and I am just hoping that when I am ready to move in, it is going to be available.

Colonial Gardens Gracious Retirement Living was the best one that I saw. It had a lot of activities. I talked to the activities director and he seemed very nice. He told what was going on and what was to be coming up in the future and it just seemed a whole lot better. It didn't feel like a nursing home. It was different. I don't know how to explain it. If I were to make a choice, it would be that one. The staff seemed very nice. It was great. If someone needed to be in a facility, that's where I would send them.

Mom is going to Colonial Gardens. It's a beautiful facility. It looks like a cruise ship inside. It looks lovely, comfortable, friendly and supportive. The staff seemed wonderful.
