Independent Living Reviews for Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh

We liked the atmosphere in Independence Village of Olde Raleigh; however, it was a little far from our residence. It looked like it needed a little updating but other than that it was fine. The carpets were a little worn and had that "old people smell," but the price was right. The person who assisted us was very friendly, nice, explained everything to us, and let us talk to some of the residents. They had a choir that day and some people playing chess and puzzles. They were fairly active, and people were in the lobby. It looked like everybody was enjoying themselves, and there seemed to be a lot of long-term residents.

I had a really good tour of Independence Village of Olde Raleigh, and I actually liked it, but it was too expensive for me and all of the utilities were not included. I saw a one-bedroom and a two-bedroom. I walked around in the lounging area and talked to a lot of people; I got good reviews from most of the residents. It was walking distance to Harris Teeter and coffee shops, which is what I love. I liked the location and the security of the place. You wake up in the morning in a safe environment and you can choose to go outside and walk to wherever you want to go in the area. The staff was very nice and very friendly. I liked the sitting areas and the elevator service, but I think the dining area was a little crowded.

I've moved to Independence Village of Olde Raleigh. It's OK, and the staff is very friendly. I have a small studio apartment, but it's OK. The food is really good, and the dining area is OK. There are activities.

The food was tasty at the Independence Village . The rooms were a bit small for me, but the decorations were lovely. It’s a very inviting place, and the maintenance and upkeep was good.

I am staying at Independence Village, and it has been two months now. They have regular meals, and they do three meals a day. The food is regular like what you could get outside from a cafeteria. The facility is clean, and they have different activities to keep you busy. It's a nice place to visit. The room has a kitchenette on the left-hand side, a living room with air-conditioning, and a window. I am in a one-bedroom unit that has a queen-sized bed and a whole bathroom with shower in it. There's a fan that sucks the air from the living room into the bedroom. You can get some assistance for a fee. It just seems like it's all about money. They charge a fee for this and that.

We selected Independence Village of Olde Raleigh for my husband's mother. It's very clean and any issues we have are taken care of promptly. The staff is very good, extremely helpful, and address our needs immediately. The dining area is beautiful, and I believe the food is good.

Independence Village of Olde Raleigh is where mom is at. What impressed me were the apartment size and the cost, nice exterior, and the diversity there. Home health care is on site; people seemed nice. The staff is OK. She’s in a 1-bedroom. The bedroom is a good size; maybe a little bit under 500 sq ft. The bathroom is decent, a little small kitchenette, sitting area. Most things were clean. My mom doesn’t like the food, so they could have a more diverse menu: more leafy green vegetable, more vegetarian-type meal. She’s doesn’t need a lot of meat and everything is meat-based.

The staff at Independence Village of Olde Raleigh were very lovely. They were really nice, they served me lunch, gave me a good tour, and spent a lot of time explaining things. It was a very good visit. The apartments were very nice; not overly fancy, but very comfortable, and well-maintained. The dining area was beautiful. What impressed me most was the atmosphere of the staff interacting with the residents. It’s a happy place. I did not see a bunch of old people sitting around looking bored. They have a lot going on. They have a piano player while I was there. I would highly recommend them.

I liked the gentleman who showed me around Independence Village. He knew the people as we went through the community, they spoke to me, and I stopped and talked to several of them. I liked the proximity of the place. The layout was a negative because a lot of the rooms were away from the dining room and the entrance. I was impressed with the place.

The people that we met at Independence Village were very friendly and accommodating. The inside of the place is very bright and colorful. It’s just a comfortable place and very nice. The dining room is very open with lots of lights in there; it’s just a really marvelous place. I wouldn’t mind living there myself. They have an activity director, TV rooms, puzzle rooms, and places where you can sit around. They have all kinds of different recreation or movies all months long.

There's a lot of interaction among staff and residents. There were activities going on the whole time I was there, and there was singing in one of the rooms. They had nice-sized apartments. The dining room seemed very nice, and everybody was eating together. They take them to the store, they have bingo, and they have a choir that they can sing with. Independence Village of Olde Raleigh is a pretty joyous place. It's a hybrid of independent and assisted living.

My sister-in-law moved at Independence Village of Old Raleigh last September. When you walk in the residents seemed to be more engaged in things rather than just in wheelchairs. You see residents that are sitting in comfortable couches, and they are engaged with each other. It's more like a comfy community. The grounds were excellent. They are older, but they are very well cared for. Even their dining facility is more interactive. As far as marketing goes, they did their marketing very well, but they really weren't trying to push anything, and the price was outstanding.

We have a place already. Independence Village has the usual bingo and activities. They have shopping sprees and general stuff that people have all the time. They provide 3 meals. The food wasn’t very palatable, but it’s better now.

Independence Village of Olde Raleigh was very nice although I only met one staff person who gave me the tour. The rooms were spacious enough and it had a homey feeling. I did not see any activities during my visit.
