I visited this facility

I move my aunt in last Sunday. They are just kind of a good place. It has a nice dining room. The staff's work ethics are very good. The rooms are spacious.

I visited this facility

My parents are here. The facilities are beautiful like the dining area, and the staff is very nice. However, their apartment does not have a small burner range. They have a small refrigerator and a microwave, but that is all they have for the kitchen. My father gets up at five, and the dining room does not open until seven. I like all the outside stuff, but as far as inside the apartment, I am not really impressed. It has a beautiful landscape, but I noticed all the plants inside are plastic. They do take good care of the residents, and my parents are very satisfied.

My two daughters chose it. My room sure is large. I don’t know how they could give you a room this big, but I have it. The staff is very nice. I had pneumonia and stayed in my room for a few days, and I was brought my meals and was well taken care of. The food is alright. It’s not the best; it’s not the worst. They have bingo, socials, and card playing, but at my age, I don’t participate in anything but the bingo. I’m very satisfied.

We chose it basically it was the only place my parent looked at. Even though she wanted to look at other places, but after she saw this place, she liked it so she decided to just go there. Location had a lot to do with it also. In terms of quality, we have not had one solitary bad review from anybody who either live there or know somebody there. Everyone has a good review. The staff is very nice. Her apartment is perfect. She has a gorgeous view of the woods behind her apartment. She's pretty happy there. Regarding food, I actually did try their food and it was pretty good. It's not like going to a restaurant, but it is not too bad. As far as activities, she has only been there since October but she has been on shopping trips and she has been to several parties. We even went to a Christmas party with her that was held there. She also goes to church and does things inside like bingo. They also have entertainment come in. Overall, they seem to have something more than a couple of things to pick from everyday. This facility is great. I would recommend them to others, and in fact, we already did.

We were able to visit the facility when we were looking for a place for my aunt. The people were excellent to deal with and very honest. It looked like a nice facility and the people were very friendly. She was about to move there except that she died right before she moved. After she passed away, they were phenomenal. They never even asked for payment for the apartment. I recommend this place to others.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

I wish I could say something nice about Anchor Bay other than the fact that there are at least 2 people who work there who seem to care about the residents. But I can't. I thought Anchor Bay would be the place where my mom and dad would relax and spend some of their latter years. No. This place is poorly run, management doesn't seem to care and my parents, and my aunt who all lived there almost 3 months have called crying saying they have to get out. Why? I honestly think the employees are miserable. It seems as every single request we make to help support our loved ones is met with rolled eye-balls or some oft-putting comment. It is awful. I think it must start at the top. Their executive director hasn't answered any of my emails or phone calls. It is like we don't exist. My parents room hasn't been cleaned in over a month, and mom has said to me many times - "I think they hate me here, i must leave." It makes me sad. It is a sad state when your octogenarian parents feel hated (or at least nor cared for) by their caretakers. Since COVID we understand that we can't visit, which is understandable. However, when perishable groceries sit in the lobby for 2 days because people are too busy to bring it to their room, you begin to feel as though the employees might consider working somewhere else. Dad says he is treated better at the checkout at Walmart. Requests to bring medicines to their room, to bring up gifts or food, or to get someone to bring fresh sheets, etc. often times go unanswered. I can go on and on. Suffice it to say that after only 10 weeks, we are moving them to another facility up the road. Already, I can see how much better their lives will be. I actually receive call backs. My emails are answered. I get the sense that people care - these are things that are missing at Anchor Bay. If you care about the elderly in your family, i strongly suggest you look elsewhere. It really pains me to write this review because of the few people who really try, however when speaking with other members of my family who have all had interactions with staff, they urged me to write this to hopefully save some of you out there who really care about where their elders go and how they are cared for.

I've been to here and it's a very nice facility. I visited the independent living. It was spotless, and it was like going into a luxury hotel. The grounds were immaculate, and it looked like condominiums to me. The staff was very friendly, and I met some of the people that reside there. They had a beauty salon, Bingo, exercises, arts and crafts, and they have movie night with popcorn. They had a full calendar of activities.

I visited this facility

I like it because they have a separate building for independent living. It had a really homey atmosphere and an outdoor space with a deck or patio for every apartment. I had a light snack, and the food was really good. I liked the woman who showed me around; she was very knowledgeable.
