Independent Living Reviews for Edgewood Downs

Edgewood Downs was nice, but they don't have full kitchens which was a big drawback. The staff was very friendly, and the grounds were very nice. They were remodeling, and it was nice. It was light and cheery and not dark. They take the people down to an extra warm pool down the road, which is nice for those with arthritis.

Edgewood Downs seemed like the right place to be because it provided meals, had lots of activities, and had people that would care about you. They also had transportation to your doctors.

Edgewood Downs was nice, but I am not ready to make a move at this time. It was clean, and the people were nice but a lot older than me, so I was uncomfortable. Everybody seemed happy. The dining area looked very clean and nice.

Edgewood Downs is more institutional, and I didn't like it. The staff was really nice and friendly, but the place felt old and institutional. The rooms were adequate.

Edgewood Downs was really nice, and we have friends who live there, but the problem was that the units didn't have kitchens. They served all three meals, and the price was good. We had lunch there, but we were not terribly impressed with the meals. The place didn't suit our needs at all. It didn't come close. They had a lot of interesting activities and so forth.

Provider Response

Hello Joanne, Thank you so much for taking the time to tour Edgewood Downs! We are glad you found the units to be very nice, and that you also found our prices to be good. Unfortunately, as you noted, our individual apartment units do not have kitchenettes. If that is not a deal breaker, you are more than welcome to come back anytime to join us for an activity or event! We wish you the best on your search, and want to thank you for taking the time to tour our lovely community. Don't be afraid to ever reach back out if you change your mind on the kitchen units!

I understand Edgewood Downs is going to be upgraded, but it's a little far away from all of the things that would be interesting for me, and the rooms were small. The staff was very friendly, and the manager was terrific. We met the chef, and he explained a lot of their cooking facilities and how they do their own food.

Edgewood Downs was very nice, but the rooms were too small. We had lunch and talked with a very nice gentleman who lives there. He gave us insight on the place, but we did not see any of the activities because it was right at lunchtime.

We placed dad at Edgewood Downs back in February. We like it because it is affordable. They have activities, and he does bean bag baseball and a bunch of outings when they go out. They serve three meals, but he only eats two. The place itself is a little old but in decent shape. The staff is really nice.

I found Edgewood Downs to be a little bit depressing. The staff who assisted me during the tour was fine. I saw a room, and I find it depressing too. I would not want my parents to stay in this facility.

During my visit in Edgewood Downs, I was attracted to the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. They were very helpful. The rooms and apartments looked good. It was obvious that the maintenance of the community was very good. They offered me a meal, but I didn't have time to eat, so I refused. The dining room was finely set up. I didn't see any activities, but they had an activities director. Overall, the consistency and persistence of the managers was impressive. We appreciate their sincerity to help us.

Britney, the manager, was an absolute doll. She went above and beyond trying to help us out and went out of her way to go up and see my mom. I was just amazed. I was absolutely overwhelmed by her generosity and willingness to try and make things happen for my mom. I only saw the one room that my mom was going to try which was a clean studio. It didn’t have a bedroom. It was just one room with a bathroom. She was starting to get some furniture gathered to put in there so that she wouldn’t have to bring anything. It was neat, tidy, and nice. The dining room is spacious, warm, and inviting. I didn’t get to try any of their meals, but they assured me that they have a great chef and that their food is quite good. Because of Britney, I would give it a 4-star rating.

Edgewood Downs was very nice but too small. The living room has a coffee table, couch, chair and TV. You could not put more in there without it looking too cluttered. We stayed overnight in the guest room. Our bed would not fit in there and my husband couldn’t get his wheelchair up against the bed except at the foot, so the bedroom was very tiny. We need a facility that has at least a 1,000 square feet; this has 750 square feet with two bedrooms. The people were wonderful, but it just would not have worked. I don’t think we could manage it there with our needs: the wheelchair and our 60-pound dog. The corners were very tight to have to push the portable wheelchair around. It just wouldn’t work for us, but it would be great for one person. It wasn’t realistic for us. The kitchen was just tiny with a microwave and a tiny sink at maybe eight inches square, and did not have an oven or stove. It was just pretty uncomfortable. The room looked out to a parking lot of a school which wasn’t terribly enlightening. It just wasn’t a good fit for us at all.

I liked everything about Edgewood, and I spent four days there. I liked that they serve the main meals at lunch. I liked the people because they were very friendly.

Mom has been at Edgewood Downs for the last six weeks now. We chose it because it was clean. The people were very friendly and personable. They looked happy and smiling. They have a chapel and a hairdresser on site. They also have a little store on site. The activities that they have were movies and different activities planned in the facility. Three meals a day was also included as well as snacks. They have nursing on site, so if you are worried and have concerns about your loved one, you can call them, and they will do a welfare check as well as be available for any medical needs.

I visited Edgewood Downs, and I thought it was OK. What I looked at was the studio, and it appeared to be clean; it didn’t smell or anything when I walked in which can happen to some of those facilities, and I received all the answers that I wanted.

I visited this community and I was impressed. Although the community is older, they do a wonderful job of making the environment comfortable for the resident's. It made me feel like I was visiting my Mom. The other communities in the area looked and felt more hotel like. The woman who took me around was great. She seemed like she really cared about the folks who lived there. She was very helpful when explaining what my nexts steps for my Mom should be. I am still looking around but haven't found any other community in which I felt that comfortable. It was explained to me that they are like a big family and I felt it while there. I had lunch there and it was served restaurant style and the food was GREAT! I will be showing my mother 3 places when she visits me and Edgewood Downs is currently top on my list.

Edgewood Downs was terrible. I thought the lady who took me around did not show me any of the merits. I was very disappointed in the tour. The food was Ok, but not very good and not to my liking. I like to eat restaurant style, not cafeteria style. The rooms were terrible. Absolutely awful. They need to be upgraded. They were fine 30 years ago, but they're passé now. And I think they needed more buses for trips, as they can only take 16 people at a time. The food should be restaurant style rather than the way it was. I would never move there.

The staff at Edgewood Downs seemed to be pretty good. It is assisted living, and she's not ready for assisted living. She takes care of herself and everything is fine, but this is not the place she wants to be in because they have Alzheimer's people walking around and she's not like that. They have a church gathering on Sundays. They have people come in and sing. They have a little craft sales going on, but my sister doesn't do much with them because she doesn't like it there. She was kind of put in a place that she doesn't fit in. I really was not impressed by what I've seen.

Edgewood Downs is very positive in their approach. They have good follow-up. The staff has been wonderful. As a matter of fact, when I had my surgery two weeks ago, one of the staff members came and he was a former minister and he prayed with me. They're very, very friendly and people-oriented and even knowing that I'm not going to move there anytime soon, they invite me to different activities. I've had lunch out there when something is going on and so they've been just wonderful to us. I know part of it is the marketing but most of it, though, comes from the heart. The rooms looked very promising. The places are clean and well kept, lots of activities. The food has been good every time I went or had a meal. It?s been a positive experience.

The rooms are pretty small at Edgewood Downs. But the place seems clean, and I like the location and amenities they have. It would be nice if the studio apartment is a little bigger.

I was very impressed with Edgewood Downs. It's very clean, the environment is nice and it's very pleasant to be in. The lady that showed me around was very, very nice and congenial and she showed me some of the rooms. They have a very nice restaurant, lounges where people could sit and watch TV, and a music area. There are activities every day, outings, or something for people to do. I was quite impressed. The cost include maid service, linen changing, and meals. They also have a salon and a little shop. They have everything you could ever want. It was a comprehensive facility. I would recommend this place.

I moved my mother into Edgewood Downs a little over a year ago. It is an independent care facility, so each resident has their own apartment which range from studios to 2 bedrooms. Included in the quite reasonable monthly rent are 3 meals a day, snacks throughout the day, all kinds of activities, bus transportation to shopping and doctor appointments, once a week housecleaning which also includes fresh sheets, and all utilities are included even cable tv. The only utility you have to pay for on your own is your phone service. They take the residents on some great bus trips to places like Spirit Mountain casino, Bonneville dam, picnic areas, holiday concerts, and scenic drives, just to name a few. Another plus are the special speakers who come in to talk about senior related issues. My mom loves the music performances and singers that come in from time to time and really appreciates how the managers decorate so beautifully for all the special occasions. It makes her feel very appreciated and cared for. The staff has been very helpful and truly care about the residents. They have went above and beyond many times, especially when my mom had just moved here from CA and had tons of questions, concerns as she was completely new to Oregon. At Edgewood Downs you can choose to be as active as you want or just relax in your apartment or the library. Lots of residents enjoying putting together puzzles in the activity room, playing billiards, joining the exercise classes or enjoying movie nights on the big screen tv. My mother has been extremely happy there. She especially loves her beanbag baseball team. They even have team shirts and travel to different facilities to compete. I have eaten there many times and the food has been excellent. The head chef takes pride in all he does and many times will come around to the tables himself to make sure every one is happy. If you don't like the main dish, they always have some very nice substitutes. The grounds are kept beautifully with lots of color in the hanging planters over the summer. The courtyard area is nice for sitting and relaxing and my mother loves to show me the beautiful multi colored roses when they are blooming. If I had to say anything negative it would be that lots of the residents use walkers and the main elevator is too small to accomodate more than 3 or 4 people at a time. But other than that, no complaints. We truly made a great decision choosing Edgewood Downs.
