Willow Valley Communities is a huge place. My brother has a beautiful apartment. They have bowling, a theater, and all kinds of classes. The whole place is beautiful. They have town homes and big buildings with 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. They have several kinds of beautiful dining rooms. They have a post office there, a bank, a grocery store, woodworking, swimming, and a gym. They have one section on one side of the road and another section on the other side because it's just so big. My sister-in-law is in the assisted living side, and she has 2 rooms. One is a living room and the other one is the bedroom. They take care of you right up to the end.

The rooms and apartments were fabulous at Willow Valley. The dining area was probably the best restaurant I have ever been in. They absolutely had everything you could ever want.

Willow Valley was beautiful and very nice. However, I didn't get the feeling that they care as much about your quality of life. If you run out of money, they would downsize you. The facility was really nice. It has a beautiful pool and nice amenities. They have flowers planted all over the place, and it is really huge.

Willow Valley was my all-time favourite. We stayed there overnight, and we got meals there and talked to people. If I could go there that would be my number one choice, but that one is a little beyond my financial needs. The staff was straight forward.

My parents are in Manor North and have been there for 20 years. They are depression kids and have a life view much different than mine - also they lived in a much different world. They are 90 and still living independently although many of their activities have been reduced or dropped due to mobility. There have been many changes the last few years as the facility is shifted to attract the boomers who want a different experience. Many of the residents are not happy with the more modern looks, missing what my parents call homey decorations. Change is inevitable but difficult for many to adjust. I personally like the more open and bright decor. Every 10 years there are major changes to keep the place relevant for the next generation. Each resident gets their apartment renovated should they chose. That includes a complete makeover to their choice. I have always had great interactions with the staff and they are very patient with the residents - as they can be VERY challenging. Like all businesses staff run the gamut of exceptional to above average. I am on the west coast and sister is in central america so we are happy that our parents are in a caring place with people they like. It is not for me but understand that many really like the adult living experience.

My Aunt lived at Willow Valley Retirement Communities for more than 25 years. She lived happily & independently at the Lakes and then moved to Supportive Living at the Glen. Unfortunately our experiences at the Glen have been very difficult. The best summary is that management is disconnected from the families and it seems they are in a power struggle sometimes exerting their powers in threatening ways. My aunt passed away on 7/2/14. Today is 7/15/14 and I have not received a call or card of condolence. This is a disgrace, but perhaps to be expected.

My Grandparents have lived at Willow Valley for just over 10 years. In the beginning, they were very happy there. Over the past few years, quite a bit has changed and I would NOT recommend this retirement community to family or friends anymore. Management is rude, disrespectful, and shares information regarding residents' personal and private interactions at the "home" without permission. I was told over the phone in significant detail behaviors of my grandparents that were none of my business when I called to follow up on some changes that had been made to the buildings/activities. The manager I spoke with actually told me she thought my grandparents were having financial very proud grandfather would DIE if he knew someone suggested that of him. Grossly inappropriate. They had no idea who I was, and even if they did, should not have shared their negative opinions of my relatives. Also, there has been construction going on in one apartment wing for over a year. This means if you live in this wing, you've been living with noise, dirt, debris, etc for over a year. Finally, many of the activities that my grandparents participate in have been dissolved with no notice other than a note on the door saying the activity is no longer available. This is very hard on them when they have schedules/routines they've been sticking to for years. The dates the activities were scheduled to reopen have come and gone several times without explanation or apology. My grandparents are so unhappy there now, and I think it's such a shame to spend your last years feeling disrespected and talked down to by staff. Sadly, I would not recommend Willow Valley Retirement Community.

I spent a night at Willow Valley and it was a great facility. It was beautiful and large. The fees were lower. The staff was very good and friendly. They were amenable and courteous. They had about five restaurants. They gave the opportunity for the people to rate the staff every single day, which I thought was interesting. They were prominent people from where they came from and they made it their job every night that somebody at the table would rate the people who waited on them that day.

We enjoyed our visit in Willow Woods. The staff who gave us a tour was gracious and informative. However, the rooms that we could afford were small. It was not spacious enough for me and my husband. There were actvities like wood workings and swimming.
