Assisted Living Reviews for Harbison Shores

I visited this facility

I visited The Agape Senior which was a very nice place. They had a very small outside area. The rooms were very nice and very spacious. I was only there once, and the staff was all very nice and very helpful to answer question. The people were very nice, and it looked like they were being cared for. Overall, it was a very nice place. My daughter-in-law's grandmother had been there for many years, and the family had been very pleased with it.

Memory Care Reviews for Harbison Shores

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

My brother is at Harbison Shores. The first night wasn't good, I heard he paced all night in the room but the second day seemed a bit better. My family has been starting to visit him to provide some continuity and some constant in the middle of all the changes. I'm still working on something about contacting him but they don't think a landline in his room was a good idea. So now I just call the facility and they would go and get him. It's alright but it seems like he's having a conversation with someone standing right there listening. It's fine though, at least I'm able to reach him. The facility so far has been good. No issues there.

We were able to visit Harbison Shores in person. I was comfortable with everything the staff told me. However, the facility and the grounds were not as nice as the others I've seen, and their rooms were smaller. They had spa rooms where residents would take showers. They didn't have a shower in the suite; it only had a toilet and a sink. The spa was like a communal-type shower area, and they were set up that way for safety, so they could watch everybody, and they could safely take showers if they needed assistance. They had an activity room and a movie-theater-type area. I do not believe it was as well maintained as the others I've seen. The private suites were a little small, and the bathrooms only had the sink and the toilet. The courtyard was enclosed and secure.

My mother is doing well at Carolina Gardens at Harbison. The staff is very helpful, very informative, they communicate with us well, and she adapted fantastically. It's a small community and there's a lot more one-on-one with the residents. It has a family-like atmosphere, they're very welcoming, and it's very homey. She has a shared room, but they have single rooms as well. They have an outdoor sitting area and a garden where they can go out and plant flowers, vegetables, or fruits. It's a secured facility. They have outings, and they do fun events. For example, there was a luau last night where they had food and games. There's a busy itinerary every day that's posted on the front door. They have daily devotionals, music, activities, games, movies, social events, ice cream socials, and they have activity boxes that help with mental stimulation and hand-eye coordination.

I'm planning to put my mother-in-law in Carolina Gardens at Harbison. My impression of the community is very nice. The rooms were suitable and they're actually very nice for the price. The staff greeted me during the tour and everybody was very friendly. I was shown some of their amenities like the hair salon, activities room, and the garden. Everything was good; I can't say anything bad about them.
