Assisted Living Reviews for Gambrill Gardens

I visited this facility

We visited Gambrill Gardens. They were doing a lot of upgrades to their food service. They had only one meal a day, which was fine. The apartments were nice, and the location was good for our son, so we were considering it. They had many things to offer for activities and had laundry services. They had a complete kitchen if you had a one-bedroom unit, plus a separate living and dining area besides the kitchen. The staff was very good. We had a very good lunch there. They came and talked to us while we were eating and were very cordial.

Hi, I recently moved into Gambrill Gardens this August. I relocated to St. Louis after living in Los Angeles for 33 years. Being relatively young (66) I decided to put my name on a list and within a month got a call about a studio unit becoming available. I jumped at the opportunity and am so grateful it all worked out.. My unit is delightful , Starting with Debra, the entire staff has been very helpful getting moved in. The food is good and well balanced for my diet needs. The residents have been very welcoming to me at every turn. I feel blessed to be here and look forward to many more years in the neighborhood.

Gambrill Gardens is affordable but not new and not that nice. It does not offer the amenities that are found in a perfectly rated place. It's a mediocre-type place but certainly for the price, you get what you pay for.

My mother is moving to Gambrill Gardens on Friday. It is independent living, but they do have assisted living on site. It is a very nice and smaller facility than a lot that we have visited. It is very homey. They have very friendly staff and tenants. My mom has a friend who lives there, and I think that is excellent. For somebody who is looking for a smaller facility, I think this is great. It is less expensive. The food is very good.

I chose Gambril Gardens for myself because initially of the cost and the friendliness of the people who were here when we visited. We went to several facilities and most of them seemed like they were kind of quick-ish, and they weren't very welcoming at all, but everyone in Gambrill seemed very happy. We have a crafts group that meet once a week, and the leader of that is just a very, very outgoing person. She is a lot of fun, and she makes us all laugh a lot. She is also one of the bus drivers, and just any place that she is involved, she makes us all feel good about ourselves, and I think that is really important. They have a worship service on Sundays. The food is pretty good most of the time. They have little glitches once in a while, but it is pretty good most of the time. I like their outings. Last week, we celebrated Gone with the Wind's week for its 75th anniversary and made hats. They bought the basic frame and provided tools and picked flowers to decorate them. The usual crafts group didn't get into that too much, but some of the people made lots of flower hats, so even if people said they didn't want them they wore them; it was a lot of fun. It is very comfortable. I am in a one bedroom unit and it is quite large enough for me. The building that I am in is a long hallway from the dining area. There are elevators in the building, gratefully, and when I get on the elevator I'd know everyone in there by name, and I've met quite a number of people.

Gambrill Gardens was nice. The rooms were pretty small, but everything else was really nice. But, you get one meal a day, and the other ones you make yourself. It was not like the other places, but it was fine and suitable for living and all that stuff. Everything was clean, and the person who took us around was great. She showed us everything and all the information we wanted, and she put us on the list. Gambrill Gardens was in pretty good shape, but they really have to do some decorating because it needed quite a bit of work.

The goal of Gambrill Gardens is to lower the cost for independent living. The room sizes were a little on the small side. The staff was very nice and very professional. The dining is cafeteria style rather than restaurant style. They provided transportation and they had a recreation and exercise room.
