Assisted Living Reviews for Tesson Heights

I really liked Tesson Heights. It was clean, had friendly people, did not have an odor, and encouraged bringing the families over. They offered cooking classes, which had a regular kitchen setup with a double oven, tables, and bar-height counters. They also had an area with a very large dining table, like in a family's house. If we wanted to heat up something, there was a microwave nearby. The dining room was nice.

The staff at Tesson Heights did a very good job with a relative of mine and were very helpful. It is an older facility that was just renovated and had a caring atmosphere. He was in the independent living part and liked it a lot. The food was very good.

Tesson Heights has the best price for the value. We like the location. They have a media center and a pool. The staff is very accommodating, and the room has met all of our expectations. They go to the grocery, movies, and casino, and do arts and crafts.

Tesson Heights was fine, but it seemed they had the independent living and the people who needed care all mixed together, but it was really nice. The staff was wonderful; they showed us apartment type rooms, but we have to furnish them. They gave us a printout of activities, they had a lot of different things -- which were very nice.

Tesson Heights was very nice. They were all cordial. The apartments were not as big as I wanted, but they were clean. Everything was OK, but it was out of my price range. The food was very good.

We visited Tesson Heights. The sales person -- Susan -- was very good. She gave me a really nice tour. It is a very beautiful facility. They have a bus that can take you places if you want to go outside of the property. They have a room that I think they use for like music and stuff like that, and they have a library place with lots of books.

We moved my mother into Tesson Heights Senior Living, and it seems like it’s working out fine so far. She’s been there about three weeks. The staff was real nice there and it was one of the more reasonable ones we looked at. Sometimes, she complains about the food, but I think she’s having a hard time adjusting. She goes to the mass on Friday. They were playing some kind of game in one of the rooms and playing bingo one time. It’s not a real huge facility, but it’s the perfect size. Her little studio apartment turned out to be really nice. We fit a lot of her own furniture in there to make her feel more like it was her own home still. One thing that’s good is they get three meals a day, and I think she really enjoys the breakfasts.

We really liked Tesson Heights. It was nice and clean but was a little bit older. Everybody seemed really happy there. They were having a birthday party when we were there. It was a little dark in the hallways, but it was a lot better priced than the other ones. They had individual dining rooms on each floor. The atmosphere was happy. Everybody was real nice and friendly. They had a big cafeteria downstairs.

Tesson Heights was very nice but seemed a little older and a lot smaller. The staff seemed very nice. The rooms were small and dark, and because it's older, it doesn't have a lot of natural light. Their grounds were nice outside and their dining room had assigned seating. They did not have a pool, but they had a church, library, and outings. They did not have doctors on-site, but you could schedule an appointment, and they will drive you there. They had a multi-purpose room for exercising, movies, and more.

My mom is at Tesson Heights. The staff seems friendly and knowledgeable. The residents seem a little younger and more able-bodied. They have independent living as well as assisted living and have a nice garden and outdoor area that I like. They provide transportation and have social program outings and shopping.

We did go to Tesson Heights, and we weren't as impressed with it as the others. It was older, and they were redoing parts of it because they had had water damage. The food was OK, but it wasn't exceptional. They did have a library and a computer room. The facility was more for people that really needed help; however, they did have nice people running it.

The one thing that really impressed me with Tesson Heights was everything was inclusive. It was very clean, the people were very nice and even the people who were there as residents would stop and talk to you. They felt comfortable to have a conversation with you. The staff was very helpful, knowledgeable and answered all my questions with facts and knowledge. They didn’t try to hide anything. There were people playing games in a little common room. There were also people out playing music together.

Tesson Heights was clean and I liked the rooms because they were fairly big. I liked the way the food was handled there. It was independent living, but they also have assisted living in the same place. The staff was very nice and very friendly.

I liked everything at Tesson Heights. It was very clean, and they cared for their residents. The staff member that we gave us the tour was very helpful and informative. We went over the different scenarios as far as the care offered and what we would need to do. So far, we had a very positive experience. They had a big crossword puzzle on the board that they were trying to solve. They had a library and different activities to keep them busy. They served three meals a day.

My grandfather moved into Tesson Heights last Sept. 7. We chose it because of location, cost, and activities. The staff was very nice. The director was great; the front desk people were all very willing to answer all our questions, and if they don’t have an answer, they will find it for us. He has a studio apartment with a large walk-in closet. They have bingo, exercise class, arts class, and Wii bowling. They have a nice library with five computers that can be used. They have three meals a day in a nice dining room, and they can order off of a menu or the special of the day.
