I have lived at Independence Village for almost eight years. I find the staff to be generally friendly and responsive. The meals are good, although they tend to have too many carbohydrates. The building is about thirty years old, so it's not in perfect shape, but it's kept clean, and they are constantly making improvements. The residents are friendly. The activities director is excellent, and there is a very active bridge club. One of the best things about Independence Village is its location - within walking distance of restaurants, a grocery store, two banks, a pack-and-ship store, two pharmacies, a nail salon, and a hairdresser. It's also near Rex Hospital and many doctors offices.

The lady who gave me a tour of Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh was very knowledgeable about the property. It was clean. It seemed like they were keeping the people in a lot of activities, and I thought that was great. The rooms were good sized. They were not too big, but they had a couple of options. I feel like it was enough for what's needed. They also showed me a couple of courtyards. They had a hair salon, and they had a physical therapy room or workout room. They showed me the game room and the church or multimedia room for movies.

I didn't like Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh because when you walked in, it wasn't welcoming. It looked like a hospital to me. I also didn't care for the staff very much. They were not as warm and welcoming as the ones in the other place that I saw. I also overheard one of the staff talking about a resident in a way that I didn't think was nice. I didn't see any diversity in the residents there. It was mostly white residents. It was not a dealbreaker, but it was just something that stood out to me.

The people at Independence Village of Olde Raleigh are very friendly. Everyone here, the staff and the residents, have been very nice. They have lots of activities. They have bingo four nights a week, bridge clubs, spades, and different card games like that. They also have arts and crafts and painting, and the food is delicious. The studios are very nice. It's adequate and has nice appliances, a refrigerator, a little stove top in the kitchenette, and a large walk-in closet. They have a little game room, a little cinema with a large screen TV, chairs, and a popcorn maker so they can watch movies. They have a little library where you can get books to read and a large, nice dining area. They have a little garden in the center. You can see it from the windows inside the building and you can go out in it as well, but you don't see it from the road. It is a clean building.

I liked that Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh was very comparable to where my parents are living right now, and they are more affordable. They have personal care providers on site. They do flexible increments of 15 minutes, so that helps when you need to maybe just get a little bit of care for your loved ones versus having to make a contract for a whole day or more. The facility looks nice. It's a little older, but it's nice. It's a little dark, but it's just from the time that it was. They provide three meals a day. They have cleaning weekly. The linen service is included where they'll wash their linens. They have activities and they do transportation to go on little shopping trips. The lady that gave me the tour was informative, knowledgeable about the questions that I had, and she was responsive to them.

My aunt has moved into Independence Village of Olde Raleigh. She got a studio apartment, which is very nice. It does not have an oven, but it has a refrigerator and stovetop, and she has the microwave that she took. It's not furnished, which is great, that way they take their own furniture. Lots of people have just retired there. They have studios, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedrooms. They have a washer and dryer that the residents can use, and there's a maid service once a week that changes and washes the sheets for the residents. They serve three meals a day down in the cafeteria. It's very nice, and they have activities during the week, and different things. I had a really good meal there, but I understand from the residents, some of the food they don't like at all, and some they do. The staff were very nice. They were playing a movie when I was there, in their theater room. They also have some church services and Bible study groups. There's a piano in the dining room, and sometimes someone comes in to play the piano and sing. They play cards, there are bridge clubs in there, and they have activities where they make things. It takes up almost all of her money, but I think it's well worth it. A person would need to pay for their own telephone or TV services.

My parents will be moving into Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh. It suited their needs best, in that it had really good food. All of their meals were included, unlike some of the other places we looked at. They were a little bit less expensive than the other places that we looked at. It was just a really good fit with them with the food, activities, and the cost. It's a two-bedroom and two bath. It is just under a thousand square feet. It has a little kitchenette. It maybe a little bit dated, but still pretty nice. I think they were going to be updating the unit in-between before they moved in. The few things that my parents were interested in were bridge and other card games. They have bingo every single day. They have a writing club that they were interested in. They also have a cooking club, and they go shopping a couple of times a week to grocery stores and big box stores. The staff was really nice, and the facility was a little bit dated.

The tour experience at Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh was very unorganized. The person who was supposed to show me the facility was touring with other people. I'm not sure why the appointment was booked if there was a conflict. I toured with an individual that wasn't very knowledgeable, so I walked away with many unanswered questions. The facility was okay but a little worn and dated. They have socializing and live music. They offer a small kitchenette as opposed to a full kitchen. My time was valuable, so I felt like it was a waste of my time because they were not prepared to see me.

Provider Response

Thank you for your valuable feedback Rhonda! We did reach out via phone and email to confirm that you would be attending the tour scheduled by Caring.com but had not received a response. Apologies for any confusion. Our staff member who provided the tour has been with Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh for 9 years and is very knowledgeable. We'd like to understand your situation better in order to try and turn your experience around. Please give us a call, we're here to help!

Independence Village of Olde Raleigh seemed to be a very nice facility. The staff during the tour was very knowledgeable and very friendly. They offered food but we declined. They've got a very nice dining area. We got there at lunch, so that's pretty much all the activity we saw. They have reading, theater, several groups that play games, and a gardening group. It seems to be very well rounded in terms of social activities. The rooms were very nice. The layout was nice, very clean, thought out, and well-appointed.

I loved Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh. I liked the location, the facilities, it's nice, and the layout of the units we saw was good. About the tour, I just thought it was well run, and we liked the woman who gave us the tour, she probably knew every name of every resident that we passed. The dining facility was nice. The layouts of the rooms we saw were nice. The size and that kind of thing would accommodate our needs for sure. We just enjoyed it. Also the access to other places, like the shops and pharmacies, the location was really good. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, experienced, and she's a nurse herself. The one part I liked, they had where the residents really maintained and worked on two little garden areas, which I thought was good. So they had certain things that I thought were nice, flowers I think came in on Fridays or Thursdays, and if you want to go down and grab some, have some fresh flowers in your apartment, you can do that. That kind of stuff was pretty nice for them to do.

My dad lives in the Independence Village of Olde Raleigh. He likes the independent living and the flexibility that I can come in and he can leave, which was not how it was in his assisted living. He likes the food and the people. The facility is clean, too. The staff is friendly and confident. My dad has limited vision and so he does not participate. He's only been there 10 days also, so I really can't say much about the activities yet. But they have activities. They've posted the activity information for him, but I haven't had a chance to look at it. Dad has a refrigerator and a sink, and he's just in the studio apartment. I know they have 2-bedroom, 2- baths, and 1-bedrooms, too.

We visited Independence Village of Olde Raleigh, and we saw about three apartments. We met Miss Colleen. She showed us the library, the common areas, the dining rooms, and outdoor space. For the three apartments, there is an efficient smaller one bedroom, and then there is a bigger one bedroom. She gave us a good tour about where the washing machines are and all the amenities that's available to the people that live there. It was very good, very welcoming, and looked very clean. It seemed like they have done some updates and updated the front entrance. It's just they're having problems with getting materials and everybody at this particular time. The staff was great. She was a lovely young lady. I really liked them. The efficiency is a little smaller, but there was no furniture. It's a little hard to picture how you would arrange the furniture. It's the same with the other two spaces. Although she was able to show me the one-bedroom apartment on a picture on her phone and how it was furnished, it gave us a good idea of how much you can put in there.

The Independence Village Of Olde Raleigh building and community were a little older than the other places I toured. The residents were older or in need of more assistance. I didn't find it as friendly an atmosphere as we would have liked. The staff member who gave the tour, Coleen, was wonderful. She was very nice, very personable, very informed, and very welcoming. We weren't that impressed with the apartments. The kitchens were a lot smaller, and it just seemed like a dark apartment. It wasn't that inviting, so we weren't that interested.

Stephanie, we truly appreciate your honest feedback. Please don't hesitate to reach out if there's anything additional we can do for you. Thank you!

Independence Village of Olde Raleigh is an older facility, but I liked it the most. The people were outstanding. I was with a marketing person, but the director came over and talked with me and spent 10 to 15 minutes with me. I couldn't believe it. It just had a good energy, even though it was older. The price was really good. All the others included internet service to the room, this one did not, so that would be a downside. You would have to pay separately for that, but the pricing was lower, so you could have it or not and you might not need it. They had a variety of apartments. They had a couple of different sizes. The kitchen was not as big as I would have liked it. I'm younger and where I am in my life, I still want kitchen equipment and it just wasn't big enough to facilitate my many machines. If I were in my 80s, I might not want all that stuff. They offered bingo, there was a gardening club, they had an area that you could garden, and they had movies and trips. This was close to Crabtree Valley Mall. It's close to shopping and you could walk to the grocery store if you wanted to, which I thought was a real benefit.

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.

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 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 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 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.

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.
