I visited this facility

My mother lives in Independent living and is now in need of a little more help. I toured the Assisted Living side of the building and what an amazing experience. My dealings with Elaine and Joy in marketing were very informative and they are very understanding and patient with all of my questions. The assisted living side of the building is bright and cheery. I met the director, Pam and sat with her. she was very attentive, answered all of our questions, and really made us feel like this was home. Her professionalism and dedication is contagious through my meetings of the rest of the staff. All of the staff were welcoming and greeted us with smiles. The building was clean and there no odors like I have experienced in other facilities. The dining room is cozy and had a great menu selection. The activity calendar is full with a lot of options. Residents look very happy. We are excited about our upcoming move.

The Amberleigh has a room with some different equipment in it, like a hydro bath where you could transfer from your wheelchair into it, and water jets help your legs for circulation. The location was perfect. They were getting ready for a Bill's game when I visited; everybody was up for that and they had decorations, so it was a very nice atmosphere. The person who gave us the tour was very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had, so she was an excellent representative for their facility.

I visited a friend of mine at The Amberleigh, and it is a very nice place. I would not mind living there, as well. Her apartment is lovely and very spacious. I have tried their food a couple of times, and it is very good. The people I know who live there are extremely happy.

Independent Living Reviews for The Amberleigh

December 19, 2018

I visited this facility

I have found my Dad's stay at The Amberleigh very satisfying. As a child it is always hard to see your parents sell the family home and move out! I can say we haven't looked back since he has been there [May 2017]. After my Mom died he was alone, there he has friends and is social. He fell in his apt. over the summer and activated his pull cord and the Security guard was in his room calling me to let let me know what happened. My Dad will tell you how he has put on 20 pounds since he has been there, he LOVES the food!

My mother currently lives in Independent Living and is need for a little bit more help these days. We have decided to stay with this Community and move her to the attached Assisted Living. My dealings with Elaine and Joy in Marketing have been absolutely amazing. they are both very knowledgeable, helpful, and understanding of our situation. I was able to meet and speak with the Director of Assisted living, Pam, and was even more put at ease about this tough decision. She put all of our fears at rest. She is thorough, extremely caring, and I can tell all of her residents are her first priority. the Building is bright, cheerful, and above all clean. There were no odors as I have found in other facilities. all the staff I came in contact with were friendly. There is a wonderful dining room, full activities available, and spa tubs for the residents to use. I can tell already this is the right choice.

had looked at Amberleigh a few years ago and my father was not ready to make the move. We decided to go back and take another tour. It started out on a good note and ended even better!! The building is beautiful with a fresh face, new décor and carpeting. The atrium area is great. So much going on and lots of residents laughing and seem very happy. Elaine gave a fantastic and informative tour. She answered every question my father had. As we were on the tour, all of the residents stopped and said hello stating how much they like living there. We stayed for lunch and it was very good. They staff is A++! Everyone had a smile and stopped to greet us. They really had a way of making us feel at home. You can see how the staff interacts with the residents and it was very endearing to watch. The director Jon had a great talk with my father and his warmth added into our decision. The calendar was packed with many different things so he can take part in what he chooses to. By the end, my father was sold! Not just on the building, the great apartment size or the staff the whole atmosphere. We are thrilled that he moved in and things are going exactly as we thought... AMAZING!!!!!

The staff at The Amberleigh was very nice, very accommodating, very friendly, and very thorough. They had lots to offer, including assisted living and memory care. They had everything, like vans that take them to doctors, to the stores, and everywhere you want to go. They've got a ton of clubs like bridge clubs, card clubs, puzzle clubs, crafts clubs, movie clubs, a variety of religious services, personal trainers, OT and PT services, and a volunteer club where they were making blankets to give to babies. The staff was very interactive and very outgoing with the residents. They had a Halloween party going on when I went. They were dressed up in costumes, and they let the residents vote for the best costumes. They had music going. They had a very full active calendar. The staff seemed to interact with them throughout. They had high school students working there which the residents just love. They had a wide variety of food and a variety of hours for them to go for breakfast and lunch where you pick off of a menu.

The Amberleigh's rooms were a bit nicer than others, and you had a choice of having a little apartment where you have a separate living room or sitting area and a separate bedroom, or you could have a glorified hotel room. It was newly remodeled and the bathroom had a nice wooden cabinet where you could store some things, plus a nice counter at the sink. They had an activities room and did outings in the local community. They had bingo, clubs, and a separate dining room if you want to hold a private party for family. They had a nice dining room, just like a fancy restaurant. The people were very friendly, very respectful, and caring toward the elderly residents. There was a separate entrance to go into the memory care if you wanted to, which was a nice feature.

My mother-in-law was at Amberleigh, and about 2 weeks later, she fell and had to go into a long-term healthcare facility. But at the time she was there, I thought it was very good. She was in an apartment, which was very large, and it was brand new, so it was excellent. They had arts and crafts and music. She was really too far gone to take much advantage of them.

We are happy with the appearance of Amberleigh, the staff, the back courtyard, and the whole feel of the place. The staff was very accommodating, and the accommodations are great, so we were very pleased. The food was very good. They have a chef on staff that makes everything great. The dining room is large, nice, clean, and comfortable, and the service is great.

I stopped in for a tour and immediately fell in love with Amberleigh. The warm friendly atmosphere made me feel at home right away. I was impressed with how the staff interacted with the residents and greeted them all by name. I knew right away that Amberleigh is the perfect place for my father. I'm sure that he will look forward to joining their Men's club and all the various activities and outings.

Mom really liked and felt comfortable in The Amberleigh. It has a homey feel as soon as you walk in and a warm and inviting atmosphere. The lady who showed us around was very pleasant. The decor and rooms were very nice. It had a salon, an exercise room, a community room, group activities, and outings for residents.

The Amberleigh was very nice, but the residents were a lot older than me, so I don’t think I will go there for the next five years. The staff was very nice too. I would absolutely recommend this facility to other people as long as they can afford it. They have cards and exercises and all kinds of activities that most facilities offer. The rooms and apartments are very nice.

The Amberleigh was very nice. The people were friendly, the location was good, the grounds were well-kept, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I looked at the one- and two-bedroom apartments, and I liked both. Their costs seemed very much in line with everybody else's.

When we were looking for a place for my dad, we found Amberleigh to be the best in the area. They have an amazing staff that greets each resident by name, they take the extra time to spend with the residents or just say a friendly hello. The apartments are the perfect size, food is wonderful with an amazing variety and plenty of activities and outings to go on. I would highly recommend Amberleigh to anyone looking for senior housing for their loved one.

Amberleigh is tops! I selected this community because my parents were actually bored at home and needed others around to socialize with. The meals are very good and the staff is unlike anyothers we've met- so sweet and compassionate to seniors. The director has a life time committment to seniors and it shows. All staff under her direction are kind, know all of the residents names and go above and beyond the call of duty. It is clean, attractive but most of all a true place to call home for seniors.

The rooms at Amberleigh were sufficient and nice, and you could pick either one or two bedrooms. The staff was very helpful, cooperative, friendly, and was able to answer all my questions, and it seemed to be a very nice place. If I was to move into a senior facility, I would pick this one. They've got an activity center with games, an exercise room, and a library.
