I visited this facility

Corby Place was very nice. We had a great tour. The lunch was wonderful, and the person who gave us the tour was very attentive. The food was really good.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

Corby Place is clean and open, nicely decorated, and has kind of old looking furnishings. It's an old building, but it's nice. The staff is fine. I have never had anybody act like they didn't want to wait on my mother or help her. They've been nice and friendly. She just said there was one time when she had a piece of chicken that wasn't completely done and the brownies being dry. It's a 14-story building.

I visited this facility

My visit at Corby Place Senior Living was very nice and very informative. The place was very clean. I like the set-up of the dining area, it looked very inviting. The menu looked nice. They have different kinds of activities. There's outings and different holiday parties. They were nice and they keep the residents active. The staff who toured me around was very knowledgeable. She had the answers to our questions. The room was very spacious. Because my father likes his family pictures, they said residents would definitely be able to put things up on the walls and make it their own home, and that was nice.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I live in this community. This building has been sold to a new buyer from California, and he is improving it. I'm perfectly happy with it right now. They are getting new carpet and new insides to the elevators. Everything is being redone. We are having really good service and a good staff. We have a wonderful, caring group of people because they go out of their way to make sure you're OK. They check on you. We have a checkout system where if I go out, I sign out to make sure they know I'm not in the building. We have a garden where people can go out and sit in the sun for a little while, and we love that. We are downtown, and a lot of us are hard of hearing, so that doesn't bother us. It's a good situation, and I like it. Our manager has been here over eight years, and she is fantastic. She used to be a nurse, so she is very caring.
