Independent Living Reviews for Country Squire

I visited this facility

Country Squire was a great place, but we can't afford it right now. I saw some ladies doing some crafts and some were playing cards. I saw a few different activities. The staff was very friendly, very informative, and very helpful. I didn't eat the food, but it looked OK.

Country Squire is fabulous and top of the line. It's wonderful and we're very pleased with it. We love it. My dad's apartment is lovely and we like it a lot. The food is great and they have nice activities, like bringing people in to do music, play Jeopardy, and play football games for them. There's male-oriented activities, and mixed activities like Bingo and other games.

My mom moved into Country Squire. They've kept up on the maintenance, but the meals haven't been the best, and a lot of times they'll have hotdogs at night or ham sandwiches. I'm not very happy with the meal situation. She's trying to get a downstairs apartment because she has a dog. They have a lot of activities, like bingo, Wheel of Fortune, and bean bag stuff. The building layout is great, but they could use another elevator because it gets crowded with all the walkers.

I liked Country Squire. We just had one person that we talked to who took us on a visit and she was nice, friendly, and she followed up three or four different times after the visit to see if we still had interest or if there were are any questions. It was laid out better and it was more open than other places, but it was a smaller apartment for the price. The dining area looked nice and there were a lot of people there eating. It was a nice open area and it looked fine.

My mother-in-law is in Country Squire now. They are just great. They are there 24/7, and they have a nurse available for the residents, so it is just really nice. We have eaten there a couple of times, and the food is excellent. She has a one-bedroom apartment with a shower, a little kitchen-type area, and a living area. It also has a nice balcony where she puts her flowers.
