Independent Living Reviews for Esplanade

I visited this facility

Esplanade Senior Residences is very elaborate, very nice, and well run. It’s the best facility that I have seen so far. Everybody was watching over the residents. The meals are great. My friend is very pleased with this facility. They take the residents to church services, doctors’ appointments, and to the beauty salon. It is very high-priced, but they offer excellent services. I would definitely recommend this place.

I visited this facility

Esplanade was a very nice place, but the rooms were very small. It was expensive. The grounds were nice; it’s like a hotel. They had a back terrace, a game room downstairs, and the building itself was very nice. They take them on trips, and they have parties. The neighborhood is fairly good.

My father moved into Esplanade over 2 months ago. He does get quite a lot of attention. There are a lot of activities, and he’s getting lots of stimulus. There’s crafts, movies, and interaction with other people of the same age. We paid extra for the nurses; they’re excellent with good attention given. It’s absolutely clean. Housekeeping is more than equipped and does a beautiful job. The food is good.

We chose Esplanade Senior for my stepmother. What I like most about it is the physical aspect of the facility. The room is a very nicely renovated, comfortable efficiency room. It didn't have a stovetop, but it has a refrigerator, a microwave, and a sink. The location also is very good for the family. They have a lot of activities compared to other places that we went. My stepmother really does participate in a lot of them, and she enjoys them. They have bingo and jewelry making. Everything seems wonderful; however, my stepmom said that the food in the dinning room could be better. They have two offices in the facility where different doctors come different days of the week. They also have an office for health care aide, so for seniors who like some assistance, they could just go down and hire somebody and they can even do it by the hour. They also have a free shuttle service that will take seniors to doctors' appointments within 10 miles.
