Assisted Living Reviews for Manor at Market Square

I visited this facility

Manor is the one that Mom could afford. The staff was very nice. The rooms were clean and nice. The size of the room was good for what she would need. Everything is set up the way she would need it there, so that would work out well. I like the fact that she can go from independent to dependent in the same room. We had lunch there, and the food was good. They have different activities every week: someone coming in and playing the piano and singing. They have activities every day for them to do right there in the building. They also have trips they take to go shopping. It looks like something that would work for her. I like the fact that it's close. If they wanted to take her shopping or do something, there are a lot of things right there in the area. The Santana Center is right near there for the shows they can go to see.

My mother-in-law had her own studio apartment at Manor at Market Square. It had a little kitchenette without stove, a sink, refrigerator, nice-sized bathroom, walk-in shower with a bench. It extended up to a two bedroom apartment in the building. There was plenty of room for her and she was very comfortable. There was a list of services you could buy, so the more services, the more expensive it was. The staff were angels. They helped her get dressed in the morning, bathe, managed her medications, took her to all her medical appointments, served three meals a day. The food was excellent. It was very important to transport her in the van and got in/out of the doctor's office safely, and they did it well. The care was wonderful. She was a complainer but she never complained about this place.

I contacted and there was a gentleman who gave me some names of the facilities in the area. My husband is in one right now. He is in Manor at Market Square. The place is appropriated for the age of my husband. It is also spacious. They do have working staff but I'm not quite sure about the ratio with the residents there. They also have activities like board games. They offer transportation to go to grocery stores, drug stores, doctor's appointments, landmarks, etc. It is a very good facility and I have been very pleased and happy with it. The only issue we have is the location. It is not in the best area. I'm uncomfortable walking around there during the day and I would not recommend it at nighttime.

The facility was clean and was set up nicely for people to live on their own and be self sufficient, but help was available if needed. Keeping this independence is very important. There are several safety precautions that are set up around each apartment. They offer very nice amenities, such as a hair salon on site, cleaning services and laundry services. Each apartment is private and allows pets which is helpful. The staff is friendly and makes the experience positive over all.

I visited this facility

There's a number of things that were in our consideration why we chose the facility. Location to us and proximity was important. We're building a home and that was only 15 miles away, so proximity was probably a primary. Also just as important of course was her comfortableness with the place. The way in which the people treated her prior to arrival. The staff were forthcoming and professional. They were providing any kind of detail we needed. Since they were used to receiving people from the local area, they would send a team of people to ones homes and pickup their belongings. You actually pay for the cost of moving them right into the building. And since we were out of town, they offered to reimburse us up to $1100 for the moving expenses. All we need is to present the receipt. They were such a blessing! It was something we were not expecting. Absolutely mom will be happy there. It's a friendly place. It had apartments that were larger than others once that you've seen other places. It's a 4-story building and the distance that she'll have to walk to get to an elevator to get to a cafeteria or the dining area actually was a consideration. It was nice brief, easy get to and very pleasant looking. There is an atrium that was quite large and a waterfalls to help people with the mood. It was rather a large place so you're not confined to a small group of people and it was a nice thing for mom to make friends especially people within her age bracket. There were a great number of activities taking place. She likes to play cards and different card games and so there was a scheduled tournament of such for it. She was able to look at different rooms were residents were actually in them, so they weren't empty. There was furniture in it and it was comfortable living there. They also have an actual beauty facility. Well you pay for it but that's fine because she was used to paying for her hair. It was also important that she had an individual assigned to her as an extra service to help her in getting to the dining area, come down the stairs or other issues. What I also like was that everybody is provided with like a lifeline device that they wear around their neck. So all of these things really proved to her (and us) that the place was experienced, kind and responsive and that just went up to her over the top.
