Assisted Living Reviews for The Allendale Community for Senior Living

October 27, 2020


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

Because of the COVID-19 epidemic, it's been a challenge to fully grasp the quality of this facility. However, all of my many conversations with various staff members have been very satisfactory. Everyone is friendly, they fully listen to my concerns and do everything they can to address the many issues my Aunt has raised. Since I don't eat the food, I rated it average. It may be better than that, but I have no way of knowing. When a vaccine makes COVID a distant memory, I'm sure the activities for the residents will be more robust, but my understanding is the residents are being given ample activities even during these challenging times. I recommend this facility to anyone who is in the need.

Dear JGO: Thanks for sharing your positive insights. Your words aptly describe what makes “Allendale” special, even in difficult times. Particularly in difficult times. Now more than ever, there’s a need for a warm, caring community where, every day, individuals and integrated care teams dedicate themselves fully to each community member’s total well-being. The friendly, respectful connection shared between our team, our residents and families makes life here happier and healthier. It’s also what helps makes The Allendale Community feel like home. We appreciate your kind words, your patience, sacrifice and cooperation during this unprecedented time. Your continued understanding and support makes all the difference.

Decor in the halls is dark green, rooms are bright neutral painted walls, food is ok, all staff in every dept are friendly and attentive. Family council meeting is a must, residents meetings handle issues. Courtyard with a fountain and sitting. all necessities for residents needs. Womens and mens club, word games.

The Allendale Community for Senior Living is excellent. The place is very clean, doesn’t smell, and is beautiful. The staff is very friendly and they seem to be on top of everything. My mother-in-law enjoys the food and she says it's very good. She likes the beauty parlor and she does a lot of reading.

My sister was at The Allendale Community for a short time. The place was an immaculate, beautiful home. The help was great. I found everybody to be nice and very caring. My sister had a private room with a dresser and a lounge chair. It was absolutely gorgeous and clean. She thought the food was good, but she wasn't raving about it. My aunt loved physical therapy; it was excellent. We loved The Allendale, but it wasn't for my sister.

We moved my mom to The Allendale Community for Senior Living. One of the things we like about it is they can care for her whether she's in assisted living, memory lane, nursing care, or whatever situation she winds up in. She can keep staying at the facility when she has to go on Medicaid after the money runs out. On the whole, it is very nice there, and the people are friendly. This place happens to be very close to relatives, too, so that helps. They have a salon, a game room, a little cinema room, a variety of activities, and Happy Hour. Also, people come in to play live music. They seem to have activities and things going on all the time.

My mom's going to Allendale. It's close to my house and costs about $6,500 a month. It's really nice, but the building is a little dated. I talked to some of the people there without the staff around and nobody had a bad word to say about them. There's a hair salon and a nail salon and anything a female would want within in the building. There are also activities all throughout the day. The dining area is really pretty and reminds me of some of the better restaurants. They also have a 24-hour cafe that's in the building for the people who live there. I really have nothing bad to say about the place.

Both of my parents are residents of The Allendale Community. The rooms and apartments are very nice and actually big compared to a lot of places I visited. The food is good, too. They have a selection of two or three items for each meal and a selection of sandwiches. My parents seem to be happy with the food and are happy for the most part with the people who work there. They have a movie theater where they show movies twice a day. They also have bingo, music, and happy hour at 3:00. The only complaint they have are the activities in the community. There was a woman who worked there that all of the elderly people really loved. For some reason, they let her go, and the residents were very disappointed. Sometimes they do the activities and sometimes they don't. They really need to improve on entertainment and find out what the residents like.

I visited this facility

We had lunch at The Allendale when we first went there. The core of the facility is very old and needs to be renovated. It’s very gaudy; every wall had different wallpaper and every hallway had a different color scheme. It and the décor were very distracting and overwhelming on a sensory level. It’s very large; it has a nursing home and assisted living together there with the memory care unit. The food was not great -- OK but not really good. I went to use the restroom in the main dining hall. One toilet was totally stuck up with paper and the other toilet sink had no paper. There was paper all over the floor. One of the garbage cans had been pulled off the wall. It was really gross. It was worse than a staff station bathroom. As I was going into the restroom, a staff member came out, so I know the staff had been there recently. and saw the condition it was in.

The Allendale Community for Senior Living needed rehab. It was not as clean or as nice as the other facility we went to. The rooms needed to be redone.

I visited this facility

The staff were wonderful and very nice. My only problem with Allendale was it was such a large place; it would be too confusing for my aunt. It was a beautiful and clean facility -- I have no complaints. It was not modern, but not old, and I found it to be very hotel like. I was impressed.

I would give Allendale Community slightly higher for social aspect. We were looking for my mom, and we were hoping that she would have activities and things to do; Allendale is a lot better than the other facility. The rooms are a good size. It is an older building, but it is well maintained.

The Allendale Community was very nice. I visited this place. They did a nice job. The reason for the visit was that I was thinking about it in the future for me and my wife. The facility was very nice. It is in a nice area. The guy introduced us to them, and he explained things to us. I would recommend this place to others.

My husband and I visited The Allendale Community. It was okay. It was not as nice as the other facility. It was a little prettier though. Their rooms weren't as big.
