Independent Living Reviews for Applewood Retirement Community

I visited this facility

I visited Applewood. It had nice little apartments upstairs, and they had an elevator going up to it. You could have all your furniture and stuff in there. It was a nice place. They had three meals a day, and you had to go down on scheduled time. The food looked fine. It was worth what you pay for.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother was at Applewood for two weeks. It was a very clean place. The people that work there were very caring. The meals were better than I expected actually. The staff was very nice, and they knew what they were doing because we had extra care for my mom. Her room was clean; the whole place was clean. I was very pleased with Applewood.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My dad seems really happy with the Sapphire at Applewood. I think he likes this one the best. I think he likes the staff and the way he is able to do the things that he wants to do. They seem really anxious to please, and he really appreciates that. He is in a studio apartment. I know it is kind of small, but he seems to be getting by pretty well. They take the residents to different places like the grocery store.

About Applewood Retirement Community
