Assisted Living Reviews for Palmettos of Charleston

I visited this facility

Palmettos of Charleston was more expensive, no professional met with me, and although the activities director was really good, she could not answer all my questions. It was clean, the landscape was kept up, and they do regular maintenance. They showed me a room, it was comparable with the others, and it was spacious. There were a lot of common areas. They have outings, get togethers, and Bingo parties.

Provider Response

Hello Lou, I am the Community Relations Director at The Palmettos of Charleston. I apologize for not being present when you visited the facility. If you would like to contact me, I can answer any questions you need answered. Someone should have given you my business card or obtained your information so we could speak personally. When comparing facilities, please note that The Palmettos includes Medication Management and some other amenities for which other facilities charge separate fees. This may give the initial impression that The Palmettos is more expensive, but when all is considered, our charges are very competitive. Thank you for visiting our community and I am more than happy to answer your questions.

We went to Palmettos of Charleston. It was even further away than the other community from where I live, and I just couldn’t fight the heavy traffic. I would describe it as very good. They were clean and seemed to have activities that kept the residents busy. The staff was wonderful and very good at showing us around and answering all of our questions. I didn’t eat the food, but the dining area was clean and looked inviting. Security was adequate. The amenities there were not as good as the amenities at the other community we saw, but they had exercises and lots of activities planned for the residents, so they had something to do just about all the time.

Palmettos of Charleston was nice. They had people come in once a month to sing and do activities. I liked the rooms, but the dining area was very small. They had corn dogs and spaghetti for the food choices, which I wasn’t too pleased about. They had an area where you can heat your food up or cook in there. They had a nice outside area, and the people were very friendly.

They're very good at Palmettos Charleston. They're very open, warm, and friendly. The rooms were nice, suitable, and it serves the purpose that I was looking for. The staff was very nice and very informative. There's no gym or pool, and that's fine. They have several activities, like games and movies. It was fine, and in the future, they will definitely be considered.
