Independent Living Reviews for Genesee Gardens

August 20, 2018

I didn't really care for Genesee Gardens because the one lady was real snappy, especially when it came to the money part. It's independent living, but they have other things, like they give them medicine or any medical needs, but for extra charges. The one-bedroom was nice and it had a balcony, so that was good. It was a nice place. They were having a karaoke thing, and popcorn, and they were all singing when I was there. Everybody was nice except for that one lady. In general, it was good.

I look at this place for myself very nice place. The person that showed me the rooms and I look at all of them was very nice. People there all seem to be very happy. I did not eat there but they were getting ready to eat and the food look great. The only thing that kept me from getting one was they do not have a stove in the kitchen they say because they cook the meals and also no washer and dryer hookups they do have coin washer and dryers in a common area. It was very clean

We really like Genesee Gardens. The place looks really clean and my father looks really good. The people who work there are friendly and happy, and they look like they really enjoy what they're doing. My dad also enjoys the food, he said it's good. They also have activities for the residents and they try to include him even though he doesn't want to.

Genesee Gardens was well cared for, and the residents seemed happy. They were coming to dinner dressed and interacting with each other. It's independent living, but they have arrangements with healthcare contractors right on-site with a couple of agencies that could provide to meet in-home care needs.

Our visit was lovely. The residents were involved and interested in us and each other. They were all arriving early for lunch so they could visit! We are going to chose this location if we are lucky enough to get a one bedroom apartment for our mother. We really liked the a la carte health services.

Genesee Gardens was very nice, but my mother wasn’t interested. It was beautiful, and immaculate. The staff seemed very friendly, and nice. If I were to take my mom to a home, it would be there.

My mother really enjoys Genesee Gardens. They provide three great meals a day. Her housekeeping is taken care of. She really enjoys this place. I think the food is very good. She is not really active, so she is not involved in any of the activities that they have. They do have groups that come in, and she enjoys that. Somebody will come in, and play music. She enjoys those kinds of things. The people are so friendly, and helpful. The facility, and the layout are very nice. My mother has a beautiful apartment that has a very large bedroom, lots of closet space, and a really nice living-room.

We had lasagna during our visit at Genesee Gardens, and it was really good. The dining room was very nice. We saw a one-bedroom apartment, and it was nice. It was very welcoming.

The one that we were most impressed with was Genesee Gardens. Everything was fine -- I felt everything there was positive. I would absolutely recommend it to others, and I already have.

Genesee Gardens was a 5-star facility, and it would take our dog. A lot of them said "pet friendly," but it was only up to dogs and cats less than 20 pounds. We had a 75-pound Labrador. The surrounding and the rooms were 5-star, excellent. Maybe a little on closet space, but most of them are. The staff was also 5-star. I could not say anything less than fantastic.

We were able to come across Genesee Gardens because some of my friends are there. My brother-in-law fairly enjoys the facility. He also loves the meals. He was able to develop friendships. The staff were actually incredible people; very loving and caring. His apartment is very spacious. It's like his home now. His bedroom can accommodate a king-sized bed. In his bathroom, they put additional grab bars in that we requested and it was wonderful.

I liked Genesee Gardens or I wouldn't put my mother in there. It's clean. It didn't have the smell, the look and the feel of a community that you would put your seniors in. The home care part of the staff is absolutely incredible. The management part of the facility, I think it needs a little bit of work. The rooms are clean and spacious. There's always something going on, like scrapbooking, movie nights and popcorn, bingo, singing songs, they bring people in and do sketching and shows.

I love Genesee Gardens. I like their independent living. It was a very nice place. Cleanliness was very good in this place. However, my daughter didn't want me in Flint. The staff seemed wonderful. Their apartments were really nice. I liked them too. However, there was barely any counter space to put stuff on. They need to put more cupboard space in their apartments. Nevertheless, I would recommend this place.

The big problem I have with Genesee Gardens is that they only have one elevator in the building. So if you have to be at their dining area at mealtime, everybody is lining up for the elevator, and because some of the residents there have walkers and some even have wheelchairs even, getting to your destination is sort of a problem. I don't want to get stuck in that kind of a deal. I would recommend this facility but I'll tell them that there's only one elevator in the building. I believe they could do better with having another elevator. Otherwise it is quite a nice place. In terms of staffing, with the little I had to do with them, they're all helpful and nice. This facility noteworthy has nice rooms for their residents.
