I visited this facility

Botsford Commons and its people were really nice. It was spread out. The staff was very accommodating. The rooms were a little bigger than the other place I visited. They had the swimming pool as soon as you come in, a library, and a nice exercise room. The lunch room was set up really pretty. I like it.

Botsford Commons is really great. It's an old Albert Kahn building that was built in 1923 with lovely architecture. The suites are bigger than the other places that we went to, and the ceilings are nine feett high. The food here is just so much better compared to the nursing home Mom went to. If there's anything you need for yourself, they will gladly give it to you. The kitchen is open from early in the morning until 6:30 at night. We had her 95th birthday party last week, and they catered it and did a lovely job. I can't say enough good things about it. The Admissions Director was just lovely. They are just so helpful, and everybody has been kind to my mother. I would totally recommend it. It has nice gardens in the front and in the back. Mom said she never had to wait for more than 10 minutes whenever she pushes the button that she wears around her neck, even in the middle of the night. They've been kind, nice, and helpful. There's a doctor in the building with a walk-in clinic in the afternoon, and it's really helpful because they've been really responsive.

Botsford Commons is a very nice place, but we could not afford it. The whole place was nice and clean. Overall, the visit was OK

Bosford is a very good facility and very good in helping us to make a decision. They are excellent in giving a higher level of care. The staff is outstanding. The rooms were nice, furnished, and had shared space.

Botsford Commons is where my niece has decided to put my sister. It's very nice. The person who showed me around was very nice. There were two women who showed me around who were excellent and gave us answers even before we asked them, so they're very well-trained.

We found Botsford Commons for my mom last month. They have apartments, condominiums, assisted living, and long-term care. It is a multi-purpose place; they are capable with a lot of different levels of care. She didn't want to leave the area because she lived in Michigan, so it was perfect for her, it met her needs, and they were very helpful. The staff is wonderful, very caring, and very supportive. It is a clean, cheerful place. It is like they are living in a hotel. And all the people there are gracious and nice, the rooms are very nice, they have private and semi-private rooms, it is a very secure place, and the food is excellent. It is a good place, and I think I am very fortunate to have found this place for her. My friend's mom was there, so I just told her what was going on, and she told me to also check the place where her mom is. So we took a visit, we liked it, did the paperwork, and within three days, she was there. It is in a remote area, so there is not a lot of activity and traffic since it is in a woodsy area, but they have a lot of activities for them. They have concerts and a bus that can take them to activities, and the patients can leave with their families on the weekends if they want. It's an excellent place, and I recommend it. The way it is set up is they have four wings, so they have patients in different wings, and in each wing, they have a dining area. It is a place where the families can visit with them, or you can visit in their rooms if you like. They encourage them not to stay in their rooms, but to get up, come out, and be a part of the community, which is really important. The dining area is also the activity room, so they have activities for them in there, or they can watch television, play puzzle, read books, or look out the window. They have a separate patio with glass walls that are high, but it’s a patio with flowers, so everyone can sit outside and have another visiting area where you will be within all of that, there are tables and chairs, and you can visit with your family in this other area. It is highly secure, and the staff is wonderful.

The cleanliness of the place is excellent. The staff is very professional. My aunt loves the food there. They also have activities, such as bingo and physical therapy.

My grandmother has MS and suffered a bad fall in her home two years ago. My family and I no longer felt comfortable with her living alone. We visited several assisted living facilities in the area before we decided on Botsford Commons. They are set up really cool and they offer single residences or roommate style. My grandma has a roommate because we wanted her to have someone to interact with. The best part about BC is the beautiful scenery and the staff. I swear they have become second family to us and truly are for my grandmother. They know what she likes, what her routine is and really accommodate her every need. This place is full service, too. They take care of laundry, meals, medication and personal care. There is a 24-hour nurse on duty, a physician's clinic on site and she is able to have physical therapy there as well. Botsford also has lots of activities to keep residents busy including visits from the local elementary and high school students who love to come and perform for the seniors. This will be the three years she has lived there and we have no complaints.

The grounds are beautiful, tranquil and serene. The staff is very friendly and concerned. My Mom needed to have rehab from a hospital stay. This facility is one of the best, I've seen in our State.

I think that Botsford Assisted Living facility is an excellent choice for placement for someone who is looking for placement for a friend or family member. Botsford Assisted Living facility is in a nice cul-de-sac neighborhood and the surrounding neighborhood is also a cul-de-sac neighborhood wooded area with pine tress surrounding the common grounds of the neighborhoods it is beautiful and so very tasteful to the eye. In addition to it have acres of land and greenery that is such a delight. While there, I noticed that the residents' rooms were very nicely decorated and beautiful and such pleasure to look at. The residents' rooms were very clean and did not smell. The entire facility was very well maintained, decorated and structured. The management and staff there treat their residents like family. The residents there interact with one another and they were very happy there also. The food their looked good and it smelled good also. The management and staff there were very visible for their residents to see them and appeared to be very attentive to their residents as well. I know that anyone 50 and over would like it there and their residents receive excellent care there also. They also offer their residents there a vast majority of services, activities, and recreational activities as well. In general, I would rank Botsford Assisted Living facility on a five stars rating for their excellence and expertise.

I visited this facility

Botsford Commons was also very nice place but priced out of our range. It seemed like they had a few amenities. They had an activity director and seemed to have a few things lined up for the residents to partake in. It was an attractive place. I talked to some of the families of some of the residents who said that they were happy having their folks there.
