Assisted Living Reviews for Walden Place

I am a friend or relative of resident

The hardest decision I have ever had to make was to place my mom in a memory care unit. I looked extensively at nursing homes and memory care units. I spent 6 months looking and wondering what to do. I had been taking care on my mom for 7 years and was just not physically or emotionally able to do this anymore. Jessica was wonderful and let me tour Walden many times even bringing mom in to eat and do some of the activities. She never pressured me but was so understanding of how hard this decision was for me to make. I thank God everyday I have mom living in the memory unit at Walden Place. It is amazing. Mom is well taken care of-physically, spiritually, emotionally, and cognitively. I am at Walden Place often and at many different hours of the day so I have had many opportunities to watch staff interact with mom and many residents. They treat everyone as if it was their mother or father they are interacting with, Mom is happy and feels she is home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you to Becky, Angie, Jen, Jayden, Marie, Christina, Pat, Linda sue ,Aimee, Lisa, Laurie, Bev, and all the other staff for giving me peace of mind and accepting mom as one of the family. If you are looking for a loving place with fun, laughter stimulation, wonderful care, great food, and sense of family; you will find it all at Walden Place.

I visited this facility

I'm a pharmacist, and for many years I have worked in a lot of care facilities. Walden Place is in a perfect location. It is very close to a Wal-Mart and a grocery market if the family members wanted to shop for their loved ones. But the facility itself is on a dead end street. It is easy to get to, but it is still secluded. There's a nice wooded area around there. The people there are just delightful. It is a small town with nice outdoor areas. If I lived in that area, it will definitely be a facility I would consider for my parents.

This place is WONDERFUL! The staff, the food, the atmosphere, the activities, the apartments and the location. I needed to find somewhere for my grandfather and there are limited options locally. He didn't need a nursing home, but couldn't live in his home safely anymore. Luckily, he qualified for a special veteran's benefit for assisted living that helped make this amazing place possible. He loves the food, his apartment, his new friends and getting out to do things. At 87, this is the happiest I've seen him since my grandmother dying three years ago. It's worth every penny.

I visited this facility

The only one that I've been to is Walden Place. It's not for me. It is too small, too crowded and it doesn’t impress me at all. I live out in the country and going into a place like that is going to make a lot of difference. This one lady in there showed us all around. The food was good. I think they have activities by I am not sure. The staff was very nice. It was a nice place; it wasn’t for me.

Provider Response

Thank you for your feedback. I am disappointed that you did not have better experience at Walden Place. We apologize as we are undergoing a renovation and thus we are in the process of making some improvements throughout the community. Feel free to reach out to me directly as I would like to understand more specifically why you did not have a better experience and invite you back to the community when the renovation is complete.

We can’t say enough about Walden Place and its amazing staff. Yes the facility is clean and well kept as you would expect. And there are plenty of activities for the residents to get involved in, which you would also expect. Exercise, Bible Study, Arts and Crafts, Bingo, Field Trips, Manicures and so much more. However what you may not expect is the true passion that the staff has for its residents. Our Mother recently had a doctor’s appointment, to which she needed a ride. Walden provided her with a ride, but it didn’t stop there. Her driver walked her into the doctor’s office, she didn’t need him to, but he did. Upon picking her back up, he let her know that he had to pick up a few other residents from appointments on the way back. Knowing that they would all be missing lunch, the driver had brought a copy of the lunch menu with him. Once everyone was picked up he called into Walden Place and placed everyone’s lunch orders so that they would have a hot lunch ready for them when they got “home”. That is going above and beyond. When my husband and I were out of town and Mom had to be taken to the hospital. The staff at Walden really stepped up. They called and checked on her everyday and then contact us and let us know how she was doing. When she was released, Walden Place even went to pick her up for us. Mom loves her life at Walden. She has made many new friends and tried things that she would never have tried. Her quality of life and health have increased since moving into Walden and we have the staff at Walden Place to thank. We would recommend Walden Place to anyone looking for an assisted living facility. It’s a loving caring environment that will enhance your life or the life of someone you care about.

My brother is a resident of Walden Place. The decision to place David in a facility was difficult but necessary. Thank God for the staff at Walden Place. They treat my brother like he was family. Other relatives that have visited him say he has gained weight and is so very happy and content. When I call him on the phone he keeps telling me how good the food is and how nice everyone is. You can't ask for more. If I have any concerns or questions the staff are always available to assist me as well. Thank you again for your professional, yet caring, approach to your residents.

One "wing" of the this Assisted Living Facility is dedicated to Memory Loss. As with any care facility, Walden Place is not 100% in every area but pretty darn close. The residents in Memory Care are treated with the utmost respect and the facilities are top notch. Programming is structured so all residents have several activities each day and are stimulated both physically and mentally. The food is superb!! All residents join in a common room and socialize during mealtime. This is in no way your perceived "Nursing Home." Medical treatment is not part of the plan but everyday medication delivery is. This is an ideal facility for those who are not bed ridden and still benefit from interaction.
