Assisted Living Reviews for Evergreen Retirement Community

September 30, 2017

I visited this facility

Evergreen Retirement Community was very nice; it's just too far away. We went to their cafe. We visited both levels of care because they offer a concierge service that could keep Mom in independent living a little longer. They had lots of activities and lots of open areas, including an outdoor pool. It was lovely. If it was been closer, she'd be there. I had nothing to complain about. They were excellent all the way around, and everybody we met was lovely. It's pretty old, but it has new buildings.

Evergreen Retirement Community is fantastic and wonderful. The rooms are really good, pretty large, and you get to bring in your own decorations. My friends are living there, so I had dinner them, and the food is really good. They have a great chef. They take them on outings, and people come in and help them paint if they're interested. They had this one person come in and sing to them. They have a fantastic activity director. She gets everybody singing with her, even the people who were kind of lolling over. I didn't think these people would get involved, but she got them involved, so it's wonderful. You'll absolutely love it. The grounds are wonderful and beautiful and have all kinds of plants. They even have the residents help plant if they want and have flower gardens and a pool.

Evergreen Retirement Community's people and campus were very nice and was well maintained. I ate at their bistro, and the food was excellent. They served three meals a day; had activities, like guest speakers and arts & crafts; and took bus trips to various locations to look at things, go out and eat, and go shopping. I would definitely recommend it to others.

The director of Evergreen was wonderful, and it was quite a pleasure speaking with him. I liked that he showed me different possibilities, including their cottage facility, which is a two-bedroom with a garage that I liked. I liked the grounds, the older building, and the history of the dairy farm. I felt comfortable.

Provider Response

I am thrilled that you enjoyed your tour of our beautiful community! We are very proud to show it off and so glad you had a great experience and left “feeling comfortable” that means so much to us. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any further questions or would like to know when your favorite apartment comes available. Sincerely, Russ Conrad, rconrad@seniorlifestyle.com

Evergreen Retirement is a lovely place, and the rooms are very spacious. The food is exceptionally good. They have a lot of activities like exercise classes, outings, movies, and Halloween costume dance party. The only problem we’re having is the response time when my dad presses the button.

Evergreen Retirement Community is very nice, but you have to commit to paying to be able to pay 4 or 5 years. The staff is great, and the rooms are very nice. I have eaten at their little shop, and the food is good. You have to be able to have the funds to pay for it before you can be accepted there -- which is probably over $200,000 by the time you add that up for 4 years -- so it's quite expensive especially for someone who is 90 years old. I think it's cost-prohibitive for my mother-in-law. There is a registered nurse.

We really like Evergreen. It feels established like it has been there a long time. It's an old property, but they take pretty good care of it. They foster a sense of belonging. It isn't like an institutional setting, and the people are really nice, so it seesd to be the best setting. I like the history and the setting. The layout seems pretty easy for most of the residents there. They have a variety of rooms. We only saw two different styles of rooms; we ended up putting my mother-in-law in one of the one-bedroom units. The efficiencies and one-room units are too small. They have villas and separate homes near the facility. They have quite a few facilities there. She's in independent living, so they have signups for activities, shuttle service for various things, and you can walk around outside. It's pretty warm, but it's in a very wooded area. It's okay for someone who has the ability to walk. They have two levels on each wing. She's on a lower level that has a patio, which is ideal for her. They have a beauty shop and a gift shop. The move-in went really smoothly, and access to her apartment is really good. The good thing is she can come and go for the most part. Everybody's apartment has a little window and a little inset where you can put a couple of chairs, a bench, or a plant.

I really enjoyed the campus and it was stunning but the price point is ridiculous. And guess what, when you run out of money........you are screwed or have to go to the nursing home. The sales people were great but the place was really dirty and it was clear that it wasn't maintained to the standard of the price point. Sorry but my money is better spent elsewhere considering I would have to move out when my funds exhausted. Beautiful grounds though!

Provider Response

Thank you for your kind words regarding Evergreen Retirement Community’s beautiful grounds and sales professionals. Evergreen Retirement Community is a private pay community so unfortunately we can’t provide assistance to individuals unable to pay for their apartment or the many amenities that come with membership to our community. We work diligently during the move-in process to ensure our potential families understand the cost of the community and apartments so they have the tools necessary to make the right decisions for themselves or their loved ones. If you have any questions regarding our community philosophy I would be happy to speak with you directly and help you through the process of choosing the right retirement community model for you. Please feel free to call our community line and ask to speak with Russ. Thank you again for your time!

We placed my mother-in-law in Evergreen Retirement Community. We really like the place. My mother-in-law is in a memory care unit, so it is pretty locked up. She is in a nice private room. The staff that works with my her seems to be experienced and very nice to work with. The dining room is set up nicely. They have a lot of activities from the beginning of the day to evening. I guess the only concern we have is the need to set up a proper communication channel with the staff there. Other than that, Evergreen Retirement Community is an excellent place.

Provider Response

Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad that majority of your experience in our memory care has been a positive one for your family and loved one. We know how important communication is and would love the opportunity to work hand in hand with you in setting up the correct channels of communication. Please give me call at 513-948-2308. Thank you, Jeremy Yates, Executive Director

We visited Evergreen. It was a very impressive place. We saw their dining area, and it was very nice. I like their little cottages. They have a little flower garden that you could walk through on the outside. They also have a beauty parlor.

We went to Evergreen. I thought the price was reasonable, and it had good care. However, they had no covered parking. They had about the same activities level, and the floor plans were good. Overall, we had a positive experience. They had all levels of care like assisted, independent, skilled, and also memory care. They had a lot of community things and things for people to do every day.

I visited this facility

My aunt had a gate pass, so we were able to attend the luncheon at one of their campuses, and they gave us an overview of their places. Evergreen was very nice, clean, and well-kept, and they provided a meal and showed us around the facility. It was very well-maintained, and the food was very good. My mother ate it and enjoyed it. They had various floor plans and models as far as going there. We only visited one. They were full and had a waiting list, but they allowed us to see the assisted living floor plan. The staff was very good, knowledgeable, polite, and friendly. They had a list of activities.

We've looked at Evergreen, and we were treated very nicely. We had a good time. The staff is good. The facility was kind of good-looking because I think it was an old farm or winery or something like that, and they expanded it and made a living system out of it. It was very nice. I was favorably impressed with Evergreen; we're going to go back and look again. It was a quick visit among a bunch of others; that’s why I’m going back to get a better impression.

Evergreen was nice, but it just didn't fit my expectation. The facility itself was very attractive, but it was more like an apartment building, so it wasn't attractive to me. The dining facility was like a restaurant though; it was very attractive.

Evergreen is beautiful. The grounds are lovely; you’re never looking out on a parking lot or at another building. It’s all landscaped gardens and a lovely building. My parents haven’t moved in yet, but they had a 2-bedroom apartment coming available, and it was due to be completely remodeled. We felt like it was a little more upscale. They got brand new kitchen cabinets, countertop, appliances, and new carpet. They got to pick the carpet and the paint colors. The rooms and the dining room are very, very nice. The staff was very nice. They have outings and trips to the grocery. They provide transportation anywhere you want to go. They have musicians and guest lecturers coming in. They have art classes.

My mom lives in Evergreen in assisted living, and she went in the hospital and they also have a separate full care facility there which is called Wellspring for rehab. She likes it, and it’s a nice place. She is in a room, and it is big. I am satisfied with the staff, and I am satisfied with the care they are providing. I think the food is pretty good because if it wasn’t she would have told me. In the assisted living part, there is a lot of stuff that they do, like they go to movies, shopping, and they take them out doing a lot of stuff.

My mother-in-law liked Evergreen the best from all the facilities that we looked at, and that is why chose this place. We liked what they had to offer. They seem to have a caring staff, and they also have a warm and friendly atmosphere. They seem to have respect for the elderly as well. It's a beautiful place and very beautifully kept up. They have a nice big dining room that they treat like a restaurant. They have tons of activities. They go on trips and around town. They also have some musical entertainment in the evenings. They play games together, and they have a swimming pool. They do arts and crafts and exercise. You name it, they got it. They have a very active activities director.

At Evergreen Retirement Community, they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They weren't hurried with us, and they took us on a tour. They also answered every question we had. Anything that they could do to assist us, they did. The rooms were wonderful. Regarding the residents, everybody looked very content.

Evergreen Retirement Community is really beautiful. They have trees and gardens. It was just pretty, and it looked really clean. However, I found them to be very expensive. My parents need to have two bedrooms, but the two-bedroom unit they had there was more expensive. We viewed a one-bedroom apartment there, and it was very nice. It had a full kitchen as opposed to a little kitchenette. The dining area looked really nice too. There were a lot of places for their residents to do things. They had a pool table. Also, a movie was going if they wanted to go and watch a movie in the auditorium.

Evergreen Retirement Community is a one-floor facility. The staff that I met were just great and I think they have a good amount of staff there. I saw that they have a lot of reading rooms, sitting rooms, and TV rooms. They also provide transportation to shopping or to appointments for the residents. What I really like about this place is the room size.

I would give Evergreen very high marks. The facility is excellent and the people are delightful. I would give them high marks for everything except the cost. They have multiple activities. They take their residents to outside programs with a bus. They've got just about anything that a resident would want.

Evergreen has nice grounds and park like setting accessed straight from his apartment. My dad has a one-bedroom apartment and is adjusting very well with residents. The apartments had a full kitchen so if mom wants to stay there she can cook. The food there is excellent. I wish they get my dad out more and exercise him. They had a calendar of activities for the residents. The parking can be a little hairy at times.

I visited this facility

I went to Evergreen Retirement Community. The staff was very nice, they showed us several apartments, but they were in construction and weren't ready for us. They don't have open dining; it was more old school because they have set times for meals, and it was farther away from us. The have a full array of activities. The independent living feels a bit smaller, they have a bistro where they can get food all the time, and the main dining room opens at designated hours.

Provider Response

Thank you for providing our community with feedback! We understand how important dining options are to our seniors and we use perspectives like yours to improve our community. We welcome you to stop by and see us after our renovations are complete!

I am/was a resident of this facility

Evergreen is horrible. The food is mediocre, and the housekeeping is deplorable, there's dirt in the hallways and on the steps that have been there for a long time. If something breaks the maintenance fixes it, but they won't do things like hanging pictures; they're not very helpful. My deck has been scummy, splintery and ugly, and the screen is broken, and I'm still waiting on that. They told me when I moved in that they'll work on that, but nothing has happened so far. It's a terrible place, and I noticed that the people who come to live there are there to die. It's not independent, but very assisted living. Everybody there has an oxygen tank, a wheelchair, or an electric scooter. They also have aides which they pay extra for.

Provider Response

At Evergreen, it is our top priority to deliver the best quality of services and care for our residents. We are disappointed to learn you are not having a better experience as a member of our community. Please reach out to me directly to share more information on how we failed to meet your expectations and how we can improve going forward. Jon Rarick, Executive Director

I visited Evergreen, it is very nice, and the director is outstanding and super caring. The grounds were well laid out, and they have patios, but the director said she might need more of assisted care, instead of independent care. I feel she will would get lost because there are a lot of different hallways and spaces. Their food was the best, I went to a luncheon there, and it was like going to a nice restaurant, and the service was excellent. They served it to everyone in their main dining room, and I was truly impressed with that. They have a lot of activities, interesting ones too, including people from the outside coming in, and they were doing a fashion show with antique cars.

I visited Evergreen Retirement Community. I didn't get a chance to look at all of the apartments, but they were very nice and the sizes were adequate. They had nice cottages that were separate from the main lobby. I didn't look into the activities because I could not afford it under my current income. The staff was very professional and accommodating. I didn't find anything wrong with the facilities, but there were a few little intricate things that I wouldn't be critical of like the parking lot being a little tight or a little crowded for space. They had a very nice library.

The grounds at Evergreen Retirement Community were nice. They had nice apartments, and they remodeled some. They had crafts, outings, socials, a whole calendar of events, and exercises. They have breakfast and dinner, and they have to pay extra for snacks. The staff was very nice. They offer a home nurse or a nursing home kind of assisted living.

I loved the setting of Evergreen Retirement. It had peaceful grounds all around it. I saw two rooms; one without a balcony and one with. Both were wonderful and of good size. I liked the hallways. They are nice and wide with lots of light. They seem to have a sense of more activities maybe because of all the walking areas that are safe to walk. They also have a coffee shop with lots of tables. If I had a place to recommend for my aunt, it would be Evergreen.

Our second choice was Evergreen. It was an older place but very nice, and it’s a larger community. It was in a beautiful place. There was golf course and a putting green. You have to dress up to go to supper and I wasn’t crazy about that, but everything else there I really like.

Evergreen Retirement Community is where my father is. It’s a wonderful and an established place with lots of big trees. They have a golf area, and it has beautiful little walkways and gardens. My father is in their independent living, and everything is well kept. Everything is nice and clean. It's a very friendly community as well. Most of the staff addresses you by name. They really are very sincere and caring. The dining room is beautiful. It’s like going into a hotel dining room. They come and they take your order. The food is delicious. They have lots of different amenities. They have entertainment and taking people to doctors and groceries. It’s a really nice place. I would like to stay there myself.
