Assisted Living Reviews for Vintage Gardens

January 27, 2015

I visited this facility

The south building is the worst. The administration is never there when you need to talk to someone about an issue, the staff is very rude. They are always sitting around when you walk in. The activity director and exercise director are the only nice people I met there. The food is nasty. I would never recommend this place for anyone

I am a friend or relative of a resident

The room that my mother got is a studio apartment. It is very nice and clean. It also has a lovely view. It has a big walk in closet and a large bathroom with zero entry level shower. My mom just moved in but as far as we know, the caregivers working there are very good and impressive. The facility is very clean and lovely. It is in a very good part of town. The dining room looks very nice. We saw one meal and it looked very good. There is a lot going on inside. The activity director takes the residents on a field trip once a week. They take anyone who is mobile enough. The safety there is wonderful. Everybody wears a button, so they can call for help anytime. Each room has an intercom in it. So if they don't show up, they can put you up and see if you are OK. It is a very good community.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom lived at Vintage Gardens Assisted Living for about six years. They had a lot of staff turn-over in the kitchen, which made us wonder what was going on. But other than that, she had good care. They had very good food and she loved it, although there was always too much. They had crafts. trips, exercises, games, outings, and other activities. I would commend this place to others.
