I moved into the Independence Village of Olde Raleigh. It's very good, and I'm enjoying being here. It's quiet and we're served three meals a day, and that's about all I can ask. We get our apartment cleaned once a week, it's quite neat and clean, and the food is good.

I went to Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh and met Coleen during the tour. She was very accommodating. She sat down with me and found out more about my mom and her needs. I think at the time of my visit, it was just right before Easter, so there were a lot of people. It was right around lunchtime too, so I got to see the people talking to each other. There was a lady who introduced me to some of the residents that live there and interact a little bit with some of the residents, and they looked happy. The place had a very nice setup. I liked it a lot. Their location was also pretty good because it was right near a hospital. I have worked with an older lady before at a local hospital there, and she lived in the place for several years. She was happy there, so it was nice. When she passed away four years ago, they had her memorial service and everything held in the Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh. I think she loved it there. The room that would have been a potential for my mom was already rented out by someone the next day. I think I've been told by a few of those people that it's because this is a busy time and people are starting to move people in, and so I couldn't secure a place there.

I have heard only very positive comments from friends who knew former residents. My visit/tour was very positive. I am moving in soon. The only thing I did not really like was the heat/air conditioning-it is noisy. I have not tried the food yet, but the menu looked very good. The staff is very friendly and answered my many questions easily and satisfactorily.

The activities keep them active and they just added work out bikes upstairs. Th e rooms are up to date with nice floors and full size refrigerators. last but not least the food is amazing with two choices everyday for lunch and dinner, and the breakfast is so fresh

Could not be happier with this community for my dad. He was nervous about leaving his home of 45 years but he became a social butterfly and met so many new friends at Independence Village.

Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh is a really good fit for my aunt. The staff is great and everybody's been really good to work with. She just got her hair done today actually. However, she had a complaint about the food. She said that the food is not much better than where she was. I think the facility is in good shape. They were doing a few external repairs that needed to be done, and they are actually in the process of working on them. My motivation for selecting this community was its pricing and affordability. I looked at the other places nearby, and Independence Village was the most affordable that offered the most comprehensive services. The rooms are good for the price, and I also think they have a strong community.

I took a tour of Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh. They showed us around, and of course we had to wear a mask. I was very pleased with what they showed me. The price was more reasonable than the others I had read about, so I decided to come to this place. The staff is very nice and very helpful. My apartment is very nice; I'm really pleased with it. It's small, but not really small; it is pretty big enough for me. It is very nice. They deliver the meals to the apartments three times a day. Most meals are really good and really nutritious. They have a cleaning lady that comes in. She cleans the room once a week and changes the sheets on the bed. They have activities. They have bingo maybe once a week, movies nearly every night, and different games for people to play. They have a laundry room with no extra charge where you can wash your own clothes. The hallways are very clean; they kept it up nicely. Each apartment has its own cooling and heating system. You can adjust the temperature the way you want. The level of care provided is based on what you need. As for me, I have COPD, and I have oxygen that is supplied by my supplier. They have a nurse and the people on the second floor can help you if you need some kind of help. Or you can go to your own doctor. They have a bus that takes you to your doctors' appointments twice a week if you need to go. I haven't taken part in the activities yet because you need to wear a mask. I'll have trouble breathing with an additional mask. I know they have activities, but I haven't taken part in them. I'm glad I came here.

I picked Independence Village of Olde Raleigh for my parents. It is a very nice and clean place. They didn’t charge us a lot to join them and required almost nothing. It's month to month, so if my parents decide they don't want to stay, they can leave. My dad thinks the food is very good. They have very helpful staff. The location is great, and they can walk to the stores.

Of all the places, I found Independence Village of Olde Raleigh by far the best. It looked so good. From my accent, the gentleman concluded that I know Spanish, so he put a couple of ladies at the door who spoke Spanish. They're nice people, very old, but very outgoing and they were speaking to me in Spanish, which was fun. They spoke English too, so we conversed. There were people in the lobby who looked very happy. He showed us around the place and it had a very good feel to it. It looked kind of consolidated and it was not spread out. There was a community feeling about the whole place. I'm not a very private person, I like chatting and doing things together with the people, so that appealed to me a lot. They had music and all kinds of programs coming up. The staff member we spoke to has kept his word that he's not going to come back and pester me all the time. He introduced us to so many people who had gone to other places and still returned here. There were people there who were over 100 years old. The doors at the rooms had lovely wreaths. They had a grocery store across the street about four minutes away, so you're not totally isolated. You can be independent. You have your own facility to cook anything you want. The accommodation was compact, but fine. It's not a home kind of place, but it is absolutely sufficient. If you're ready to move into that place, you need to downsize and go there.

Independence Village of Olde Raleigh was nice, clean, older, and not fancy. The manager seemed genuine. They took people on trips to museums, served three meals a day, and had transportation on certain days of the week, which you signed up for to go to doctors' appointments.

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.

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.

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.

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.
