Before you move in ask residents what they think of the fine dining. Believe me-it is not good at all. Also if there are complaints, it only falls on deaf ears and gets worse. The tavern is actually cheaper than h-s-h food
Provider Response

My wife moved into Homestead Hills. It is excellent, and there's absolutely no problem. It's very well taken care of. The staff is good, the nursing staff is sufficient, and the food is good, too. The dining area is very nice. There are set tables for four. They have entertainers and small programs. They tend to decorate for the particular season. They have crafts, TV, and singing. Overall, it has been very favorable. I think I'm definitely getting my money's worth.

My mother was a resident in the Memory Care neighborhood. When they first opened this section - it was wonderful. The entire staff was very attentive and went out of their way to ensure that our mother was happy and taken care of from the kitchen staff, activity director, caregivers even the administration. BUT then they changed administration and directors and it went down hill from there. They either got rid of the top performing aids, caregivers, etc. or they were fired because "they cared too much". Had several meetings with administrators and it was the worst display of concern for a patient that I ever saw. After several falls - they always had mother cleaned up without a drop of blood or anything on her before I got there. I was even told that staff was told to clean up the mess before the family gets here. If it hadnt been for 1-2 caregivers that remained we would have moved her. And yes we were told in a meeting "if you dont like it here you can move her to another facility". We eventually moved mother to Hospice where she passed away after another fall because she wasnt supervised. This is a beautiful facility and fairly new but would not recommend until they change the Executives, Directors and Administration there.

My mom is in the assisted living of Homestead Hills, and I am not overly impressed with them. The staff are very unconcerned. They don’t really feel like it’s their job to do too much for the residents. If there's a health problem, they don’t do anything about it nor alert anyone to it. The food has not been good compared their independent living area. The room that she has is small but OK.
Provider Response

Thank you for your review. We take complaints and concerns regarding our staff and services very seriously. Our Executive Director, Healthcare Administrator and Home Office Team have been made aware of your concerns and will promptly investigate these matters.

Homestead Hills seemed to be a very nice and adequate facility. The staff was very nice. The rooms and apartments were quite nice and adequate for residency. We had lunch there, and the food was fine. The dining area was clean. Residents seemed to be content.

Homestead Hills was having a grand opening for a new wing when we went and visited there. The staff was really friendly. Everything was really pretty. It was a continuing care facility, and I thought they had a lot going on. We just had a nice time. We only saw the apartments in the new wing. They were very spacious. They had a nice view outside. They were complete with washer and dryer in the laundry room. When we were there, we had a tour of the building, and of course, they had a speaker because it was their grand opening. From the looks of their little brochure and everything, they had a lot of activities, but we were there for special occasions. We would go back and take another look, but we really liked it. I would recommend it. Everybody that we talked to was just really happy with it.
Provider Response

Thank you for the review and for attending our Grand Opening of The Forsyth at Homestead Hills in Winston Salem. In addition to the spacious 1 and 2 bedroom Villa Apartments you visited, we also offer beautiful 2 and 3 bedroom Cottage Homes. You are correct about the activities, our Social Director works extremely hard to provide a jam-packed calendar of events to make sure there is always something happening for everyone's taste and interest. Feel free to come back anytime for another visit. Give us a call at 336.659.0708 and we'll make sure you see the entire campus this time and enjoy all of our luxury amenities.

I visited this facility

I found the room that I could readily move in to at Homestead Hills, but it won't be there by the time I'm ready to go because it was in a new wing and they had all except two already sold. It was bigger, and the buy-in was very high, but it is an equity that you get back if you don't stay a long time. I knew somebody who used to live there. The room that I really liked had a large living room, a bedroom, a nice kitchen, and a nice bath. I could've moved into that, and it wouldn't bother me at all to be moving from where I am. They had a lot of activities, and they take trips.

Homestead Hills seems very nice and quite pleasant. I go to a water exercise class there, so I’m familiar with their health facility, and it’s very nice. I have visited someone who is in nursing care there; I thought it looked OK and seemed quite adequate, although the friend didn’t seem to like it very much. The location seems good. It’s one of those places that have a country club feel to it. The grounds were well-maintained, and it seemed to have all sorts of resources available on campus.

In the past I could only give 5 stars to this place Now there is a new administration. They do not return phone calls, they have cut back on the staff, and now, tomorrow I will address possible neglect of my mother who is in the memory care unit with a weeping sore on her abdomen. It makes me sick!
Provider Response

The staff at Homestead Hills Retirement is great and very attentive. Mother seems very happy. They have a pool. They take her in once or twice a week for exercises. They have outings, card games and bingo. Every day an activity so she has been happy. There’s socialization that she’s getting, but she’s diabetic so they keep a really close eye on her blood sugars. I like the care that she gets and the cleanliness of it.

I visited this facility

I went to Homestead Hills years ago. It was very well kept. When I looked at it before, it was also pretty new. It looked like a new construction. The facilities there were very nice. They had wide variety of residents there, e.g., from people who are still very independent to obviously people who need a lot of help. They had a variety of floor plans and even cottages and separate houses. It was pricey but it's not the most expensive in town.

Homestead Hills Retirement is all incorporated. It's got everything inclusive. Assisted living if you need it, private rooms, and dining rooms. I mean, it's just one monthly payment and everything is paid. The staff is wonderful. They're a great staff. I've moved my dad in. He has a two bedroom house that's about 1200 sq. ft. It's very clean because they clean it every week and that's included in their services. And, the outside property is maintained by the outside landscaping firms, so everybody's fine.

We moved mom at Homestead Hills. The facility is nice. She is very happy there. Her room is nice and she has a private bath, so it's good. The staff is fine. They have a pretty good variety of food and its okay. They have a lot of activities, a lot of things for the residents to do like games, physical activities, and opportunities to interact with others. Everybody has been very nice to us and we are pretty happy with the situation.

The time that we moved her there, they were most accommodating for her and her dog. My aunt has her own apartment. Sometimes, I don't like the rules, but I like working with them. They have fairly good food, but I think they over charge because they cost too much. There are portions that are too large. My aunt had left-overs and I asked them to cut down on certain portions and they didn't. They have lots of activities, the problem is that I can't make my aunt go to do them.

My great-grandmother stayed at Homestead Hill before her passing. She was 85+ years old and couldn't live on her own anymore. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and needed extra care that none of her children or grand children could provide on the regular. Homestead in my opinion took very great care of her. The staff was always friendly and knowledgeable and treated my great grandmother with respect. They checked on her multiple times of day, so much so that she kind of complained about it. They also made sure to give her, her medication whenever it was required. They were also great about giving her a sense of independence by allowing her to walk around the facility and partake in hobbies like knitting with others who were staying at the facility. Even in her time before her passing they took extremely good care of her and made sure to update the family at least twice a week on her health and on the day of her passing knew of all the proper procedures and ways to handle the body. The only things I disliked happened to be the smell of old perfume, but it's to be expected.

Independent Living Reviews for Homestead Hills

I am/was a resident of this facility

We moved to Homestead Hills around Thanksgiving this past year. My wife and I felt that we were in the place where we needed assistance. Our children live locally and our daughter who is a nurse at Forsyth Hospital recommended this place. My wife also was instrumental in finding the right place for us. They actually did the research and decided on Homestead for us. I recently had surgery and was actually a part of their skilled nursing program which offers rehab services. The rehab and skilled care was very good. The staff was wonderful. I have since been released back to my apartment villa. The staff now comes twice a day to my apartment to continue the rehab. My wife and I enjoy the dining here. I think that she probably enjoys not having to cook all the time. While we were sad to leave our home that was built with many memories, we quite enjoy being here. For anyone looking who needs added assistance, I would advise to really look at Homestead Hills.

I visited this facility

I think Homestead Hills is a very nice continuing care facility. I met the lady who was the marketing resource, and I also met some of the residents. Every one of them at breakfast was very positive in their description of the family there, and they basically were encouraging me to continue looking into it. Cindy was not only friendly, but she provided a lot of information about living there that I would not have asked for, and we talked about the financial situation that one would have to be comfortable living at Homestead Hills. So we got into things that I would have not initiated, and I appreciated that. They have three standing homes and apartment units, so she was able to show me the home that was something like ice-bright I would want and she showed me a comparable unit in the apartment building, so I had an opportunity to see something of everything. As we toured I was told about many kind of activities that were part of the lifestyle of Homestead Hills, and I was impressed with the array of the things that she told me about. The thing that stuck in my mind was the wellness activities and such and the opportunities to just keep yourself physically fit. That turns out to be something important to me who travels to a fitness center now, but the fact that there were a lot of programs and equipment and such that encourage the residents to keep moving was encouraging to me. They also talked of some social things that were there too and about the opportunities for residents to mingle with each other and thus be part of one another's life. Actually, in Illinois I am a part-time employee of a continuing care facility -- something that is run by a church based organization and is a nice facility -- so I am kind of always comparing what that facility is like relative to Homestead Hills, and I would tell you that it compares favorably across the board at less of a cost. Their cultures compare favorably with each other.
