Assisted Living Reviews for Kensington Place Retirement Community

Kensington Place Retirement Community offers assistance if you need it. They have really nice apartments with nice views. They take you places, and they have a gym on-site. It seemed nicer, like a home. If they get worse or need assistance, they will have someone come in and help them so they don't have to move.

Kensington was very nice, it wasn’t as spacious as the others, but it was very clean. They had lots of activities. I loved their dining area, it made you feel like you were in a restaurant. It was very first class.

I am in Kennsington Place, and the people here are great -- all 120 of them. I have a 5-room apartment, and it is great. They have maid service every other week, and I have my own maid come in the other week. The food here is excellent. We have a gym. We have nursing, advisory, and entertainment 3 or 4 nights a week. We play bingo, and we have movies.

When I walked through Kensington Place, I saw their dining room. It was nice. However, for the money they asked, I didn't think it was something special. The staff and the apartments were nice. They had showed me all the things they had and they had buses to take the senior citizens to different activities. I thought that was nice. However, I'm still active and I didn't need some of the things they were offering. I just didn't have the income to live there.

My friend likes Kensington Place the best because she has a multiple room there, like the bedroom, the living room and the kitchen. It is gorgeous. They serve two meals a day in a beautiful dining room with white table clothes. They have activities for the residents and transportations for their medical concerns. The people there are very helpful. I will recommend it to others.

Independent Living Reviews for Kensington Place Retirement Community

I visited this facility

Kensington Place was in quite a bit older building, and it was right next to a medical facility. It had a beautiful setting, backed up to a woods, there was a walking trail through there, and overall, I liked what I saw. The staff member was very helpful, and I thought she did a very good job. I just saw residents in the lobby picking up mail, the residents were a bit older, and everybody seemed to be staying in their rooms.

My mom really liked Kensington Place. They had a chef from Cameron that runs the place. The rooms were a nice size and we were impressed with the condition and how everything looked. We ate there and the food we had was really good.

I liked almost everything about The Kensington; that's where I wanted my mom to go. They had a deck where they can go out and sit, patio tables with umbrellas to get some fresh air, and a little walking path outside for exercise.

Kensington Place is the cleanest place that I have ever walked into. The staff was very friendly. However, I could not afford it. The community was beautiful and centrally located, which is nice. I wish they could make it more affordable.

Kensington Place seemed fine, but the kitchen appliances were very cheap. They seemed to have plenty of things, and there were people around.
