Assisted Living Reviews for The Wellington at Springfield

The Wellington at Springfield was a fine community. They had a room available. They were friendly. The management was very nice to us. The Wellington Memory Care area is very brightly colored, each room and hallway section is a different bright and bold color, which is lovely and helpful to residents to identify boundaries and different areas. Their dining area had square tables and a nice menu. They allowed the residents to go outside, but since the outdoor area cannot be seen from within, residents have to be chaperoned, so it was not as leisurely. The activities seemed very nice and very interactive. For us, the only drawback was travel time. The drive was about an hour each way with traffic, thus being substantially further than what we hoped for. Otherwise, the Wellington is a very nice place for the residents.

The Wellington at Springfield was very nice. We really liked the setup. It was clean, convenient, and everything about it was very nice. Dad sat down and the girl knelt down on the floor in front of him and presented the place while she was on the floor. They had exercise equipment, like a treadmill and a bike.

The person at The Wellington at Springfield that gave us the tour was wonderful. The rooms were fabulous, and I thought the accommodation was really great. I just didn’t like their location because it was too far out, but their price was reasonable. They take the residents to places and they bring in entertainment, and the residents actually looked very happy. The dining area was beautiful, but we didn’t try the food.

My mother-in-law is at the Wellington at Springfield. They are very attentive, caring, and just wonderful people. Their nurses are terrific. She is very happy where she is. They tend to her, and it is a good place. It is a beautiful place; the layout is just perfect. I have no complaints at all. She is sharing a room with another resident, and she loves it; she is very happy. It is well-maintained, and they come and do laundry service once a week. It is just the perfect place. She is OK with their food -- a little bland and on the cold side sometimes when she gets it -- but she chooses sometimes to eat something simple in her room. Their dining facilities are beautiful. It is very spacious and plenty of tables, and the set up is pretty with tablecloths and flowers on each table. They allow family to dine with you if you like.

It is nice, big, and clean. They brought us to the dining room and showed us a movie, brochures, and gave a speech. The food was good and served restaurant-style.

It was very nice. I met the people, and I thought I am going to choose it if I am ready because I met the people and everybody seemed to be very happy, and they talk to us. The people are more active and friendly. The location is very nice; it’s close to Washington University. The food was very good, I would rate that very high. They only served two meals, and I like the layout of the rooms. It was a little easier for me, and they had handicapped baths.

Independent Living Reviews for The Wellington at Springfield

I visited this facility

The Wellington At Springfield as a whole was affordable, and the food they presented was very well-made. It's personal, the staff was addressing everybody by name. To the customers and would ask them questions like she would ask how's your day, or how's your visit to the doctor. She knows very aspect of the business, and gave us additional information which we appreciated. I really find that this community is affordable and transitional. We saw a 1-bedroom apartment with a bay window, it had very clean carpets and walls, a full kitchen, and a separate bedroom. There's no dining room, there's just a small table, there's a special light which I love. The food was delicious, we had different choices and they then gave us dessert which was great to have. The food was very nutritional and ideal, it was very good. I love the warm approach of the people working there. The marketing lady we met was helpful in answering our questions and giving suggestions. I was just very pleased with the staff, including the restaurant staff, all of them were very courteous and smiling asking us if we want this or that. They have different choices of food whether we want this salad or that salad and so on. Personally, it's inconvenient having to go across downtown, and there's lots of traffic, so it takes a while to get to the community.

My mom moved into independent living at The Wellington at Springfield. It's absolutely beautiful and it looks like a five-star hotel. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The amenities are beyond our expectations. The food is excellent and wonderful. They have an activity room for crafts, a very nice little gym, and weekly bus trips to doctors' appointments and shopping.
