Independent Living Reviews for Saint Francis Residential Community

I visited this facility

St. Francis is homey and the people are nice. It’s new, clean, and the room sizes are big. There are a lot of things for them to do and lots of communal areas. They have a movie room, bingo every day, and they have this little room with a piano. Sometimes people come in and perform. It was a resident that took us around and let us see the rooms. When somebody moves in, they take out the carpets and put in new carpets. They make very comfortable for somebody moving in. It’s close to the hospital.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I like the independence that I have here in St. Francis. I live in an apartment and I cook for my self. I feel good that I can do things on my own. When I feel a little bored, there are plenty of things to do around here. I walk to the lobby and have coffee. There's also a long walk up to the library. It's an opportunity for me to feel independent and active so that my kids can enjoy their lives. I joined the men's club and we meet every two weeks. We create new ideas like new games for everyone to participate in. On a Monday and Thursday night, we can play Trivial Pursuit. We also have bingo and different entertainment in the lobby. One of the things that I really enjoy is that they have food on sale at the front desk. The price is fantastic. I'm very happy with my stay here at St. Francis. My son found this place for me when he was looking around.

St. Francis has been around longer than other communities. They offer something that some others do not offer and that is a warmer and more home-like atmosphere. They have a spiritual chapel that is more conducive and comfortable. The rooms are ample. I believe they are going to build new ones too. I feel like the residents are not being taken advantage of. Other places have different fees for every little things. Most of the things we at St. Francis are already inclusive such us parking spaces and other stuff.
