Nancy and I are currently residents for the last 3 plus years. We enjoy living here very much and our only regret is we did not come earlier. Jake does a great job on the food, and the staff is very helpful and caring. The facilities are very adequate for our living needs at this time. Deb our new activities director and can be counted to add a nice touch of creativity and meaningful things to do.

Orchid Terrace was super nice. It’s independent living, but they have additional care you could hire if you needed to. It had a very warm atmosphere, they have a really comfortable looking and nice dining areas. The rooms are very bright and had a lot of natural light in them which was really nice. They have what they call the “Pink Ladies”. I guess they're the ones who helps out when you needed additional care. We saw everybody coming down for lunch. They have the usual amenities like an amphitheater, crafts room, and activities. The apartments were really nice, seem inviting and everyone had their own private little porch. It was the nicest place by far that we've visited. They took me on a tour of the whole building. They have a lot of areas where people could gather and talk. They have a theater area. The dining room is a good balance and not overly fussy décor-wise. It just seems like a nice place to eat and sit with friends. The place was spacious and well-lit. They also followed up with me. The community is located in a residential area, and it was a very nice setting. There's lots of people out and moving around and there are hand rails down all the hallways. The apartments are what kind of struck me as being the best. They were just really nice and beautiful. The building itself was beautiful, very roomy, clean, well-decorated and laid out nicely.

Orchid Terrace was wonderful and very nice, but the price for the rent was out of my reach. One of the things I didn't care for was that the floor covering was a white rug, which there's no way I'd like. For those who can afford the place, there's nothing to improve on. The place was very clean, everything was spotless, and staff was very friendly.

Orchid Terrace is great. The staff-members are all very patient and caring. My dad's studio apartment is a perfect size for him, and they do the housekeeping, so it's very clean. They have a movie every day that residents can go to, they get together to play cards or Wii bowling, they go out for outings or lunches, they take them to the casino once a month, and they also always have happy hour. So all in all they kept the seniors busy and active.

My mom gets excellent care at the Orchid Terrace, and she is very happy with the food. The service is excellent, and the management is very caring. But the negative thing is, she has been in since the beginning of March, at which time they did not have a bus driver to take people out on outings, and they continue to have that issue; they have not hired a bus driver about eight weeks, and that’s unacceptable. Mom enjoys the food and activities, she’s got a beautiful room, and they take good care of her.

Orchid Terrace was a very nice place, and the staff was very nice. The rooms looked very good and had 3 different sizes to offer. Their pricing structure was different from the others because you only pay for the services that you need. The location was fine and the grounds were very nice. I would recommend it to other people.

Orchid Terrace was fine and older, but it was still clean. The room was nice, but it wasn't anything special. The staff was very nice, and the meal was good, had good servings, was tasty, and was served well. The dining room was very bright.

Orchid Terrace was very nice, but it was only independent living, and you had to go somewhere else if you needed care. It was clean. The staff who gave the tour was very nice.

He has been at Orchid Terrace for about a month now. I have no complaints about the place, and I think it's just fine. In the evening, they have ice cream socials and watch movies. The facility is kept up nicely; it's clean and welcoming outside. It's very close to the highway, and there are grocery stores nearby.

Orchid Terrace was a very homey, clean, and very friendly place. The staff was wonderful and helpful. The apartments were very clean, updated, and very nice. Their price was comparable to other places. I liked the convenience of it because you have everything right there, especially if the person is independent enough to drive or take a short walk to the shopping places nearby.

Orchid Terrace looked very nice, but the studio apartment was just like a square room and not very big. The dining area was very pretty. The place looked real clean, and the staff was friendly. This place looked a little bit fancier for a younger group of residents.

Orchid Terrace is an independent living facility and they have an organization that does things for the residents. My mother loves the meals, the library, and the exercise classes they have, and the fact that just about everything she goes to is on the floor where she is at. She likes all the activities. They have the entire month listed and hanging up and they can choose what activity they want to go to. She has her apartment cleaned once a week and they come and change her bedding once a week. She loves it. I would recommend them. She has her own little apartment, a little kitchenette, a bedroom, a bathroom, and a living room.

Orchid Terrace appeared really nice. But when we saw an empty room, it looked so small. There was a partial kitchenette with cabinets and refrigerator. Otherwise, it’s fine. The common area is nice. The staff were friendly.

We are on the waiting list at Orchid Terrace. I chose it because Monica, who interviewed me, was extremely helpful, comforting, and friendly. The place was very clean, and because I'm looking for an efficiency to keep the cost down, they have nice sized efficiency. Also, it is fairly close to where I live, and the price is good. Monica has explained that if the person you placed there starts to get more involved, there are a lot of separate little services that can be purchased, e.g. assistance with dressing, assistance with taking meds or bathing, etc. It just seemed really nice and complete, it is in a pretty location, and it is very clean.

Orchid Terrace is a little more congested. It’s in an older neighborhood, but it was very nice and clean. The apartments were really nice as well as the people. I like the menu; the guy showed us what they were serving that day. On the right side of the menu is the alternatives if you don’t like what they were having.

I was familiar with the area where Orchid Terrace was located. The staff was very informative. It was a nice facility. The rooms were nice. They were just too expensive for my father's budget. They had different sizes of rooms. The dining room was very nice, and it looked clean.

Orchid Terrace is a fairly new facility. It’s close to the highway, and it’s not hard to get to it. I liked the one-bedroom because of the kitchen area, and my table will fit there. The bedroom is spacious. I also liked the travel package where if you live in a Holiday and you travel to a city that has a Holiday you can stay there for a week with the same amenities that you get at home. They have Bingo and socialization. The staff is very good. I did not eat there, but you can see the dining area from the top floor.

Orchid Terrace was excellent. The staff and the meals were also excellent. They offered some activities. The rooms were very spacious with big windows, so there was lots of sunshine.

I had a stroke and my wife passed on, and I stayed at the Orchid Terrace for about six months because I couldn't live at my home. The managers and everything there was friendly. I had a one-bedroom apartment that was spacious enough. They served three meals a day and the food were nourishing. They had an activities' lady that was really good and nice, and they had all kinds of activities. It was a really nice place.

Orchid Terrace is absolutely wonderful. The location is great, close to a lot of great places in St. Louis like fine restaurants, and lots of places for shopping. The estate is beautiful as well, and feels secluded. The home does various things with the residents so that they know each other and are social so it feels like a family within the walls. My grandmother also tells me the food is delicious; three cooked meals a day. It's also great that they have a couple of managers who live in the house as well, to help provide a sense of security. I only hear good things about the place, and would recommend it to anyone that is considering moving into retirement. They provide an easy life with linen/house services, and even a travel program, ensuring that the residents of the home will never be bored and will enjoy retirement to the fullest.
