Independent Living Reviews for Garden Way

My parents preferred Garden Way over any of the other places we went. It felt more like home to them. The staff was excellent, and the people were very upbeat. There was a very good, positive atmosphere. The community received a lot of positive feedback about the management team who had been there for an extended period of time. The food and the food options were very good. The pricing was good. They were able to do a buy-down where my parents paid a lump sum upfront and got their monthly rent reduced.

Garden Way was a well-kept, well-maintained facility with food service. They were interested in and tracking whether people came down for meals. They had a computer lab, theater, fitness center, supplementary kitchen area when family came, and transportation available. They had restaurant-style food and nice-looking apartments. The amenities seemed very professional, very clean, and very well kept.

Garden Way had tons of activities, a salad bar, and healthy food on a menu you could choose from everyday. They had massages, hot tubs, movie nights, and art classes. My mom was happy with all the activities. They had trips to the beach and wineries and a dining room that you can use just for family members.

Garden Way is really good. I have done a lot of research and I go to all the options in town. This place tops them all. It is very nice and my husband has all everything he needs. The best thing of all is the food. They make homemade soup from scratch. The price is pretty comparable to the rest of the place. It is close to the freeway. It is a newer place. It is very nice. It has a beautiful view, and it is quiet. I did not have a chance to try their food, but it is a little bit more expensive by $200.00. This is also much closer, so I can visit him more. The Garden Way people are very nice and very accommodating to seniors so I love it. My husband has been there for a week and I check all the time. His apartment is spick and span. If you are going to check it out, this place is a good option. The people seem really happy. They have movies, activities, and music people that comes in. I think it is really well run, and trust me, that is not easy to do with that much people.

Garden Way Retirement Community was wonderful. In fact, that’s where we were headed until we decided we needed to be near our family. Their apartments were very nice with full kitchens included, and the staff was really nice. We’ve eaten there twice, and it was very good. They take you to your appointments and have exercise classes. I wish it was in California; then that’s where I would go. We were there in the fall, and they had everything decorated with fall colors. For Veterans Day, they did a big event honoring the veterans. It's a large facility so to get people to exercise and walk around, they give them phony money to walk around the facility, then hold an auction where people can bid on things from that auction with their earned money. The prizes are not elaborate, just silly things like a roll of paper or a box of Kleenex, but it's their way to get people to get out and walk.

Garden Way was a very classy place, but it was $2,800 a month. Also, it was a little more distant from businesses. Residents would have to take shuttle buses to get to shopping centers and to businesses. The facility was modern and attractive. It appeared to have an excellent dining room.

Everything was wonderful at Garden Way. The staff was excellent. The woman was a very good listener. Their rooms/apartments were excellent too. There was nothing negative at all. It was wonderful. I haven't tried the food, but just looking at the menu, it looked like it was very fine dining. It was excellent, well-thought out, healthy food.

I had an excellent visit to Garden Way. They have fitness activities. They have a theater for movies. They provide three meals a day, and they have buses for day trips.

We liked Garden Way. The people that worked there are extraordinary. Our favorite is the dining hall because it was down to earth, and at the same time it was like a sit down in a regular restaurant. It wasn't a place where you had to be at a certain time. It was just a very comfortable place. I did check out the accommodations, and it was very nice. They had all the amenities we could ask for except a swimming pool.

Provider Response

Thank you taking the time to review our community and share your experience with others like you. Chef Martin is exceptional and our restaurant style leisure dining is a favorite among our residents, families and friends. We are glad you too were enjoy our Food Program here at Garden Way. If you would like to come back and visit again, or there is anything we can do to help you further, please left us know.

I didn't care too much about Garden Way. It was okay and also the staff did the best they can but it's not something I wanted. The thing that bothers me the most is the fact that they don't have washer and dryers in the apartments. I think it's grossly unfair to have old people get dressed and walk down the hall to do their laundry.
