Independent Living Reviews for The Parkview

The Parkview was very nice. It's like a 1920s hotel. It's been converted, and there is very nice wood in the moldings. All the people we talked to, the residents we talked to there seemed very happy. The food was very good. The front desk was very nice. The lady who gave us the tour and showed us around was very helpful.

My sister currently lives in Parkview Memphis, which is fine. It was a hotel many years ago, and they turned it into a really classy senior residence. There’s a grand piano in the lobby, so they do music all the time, plus a beautiful dining room with a chef. I am not super happy about the fact that they have turned over their assisted services to another agency. The people are really nice. The rooms have a variety of different sizes and shapes. My sister formerly lived in a pretty two-bedroom, but she downsized to a one-bedroom that's still very spacious and has a high ceiling. The first time she ever went to visit, she fell in love.

The Parkview was very nice. It was wonderful. The staffing was nice. This place was awesome, and if I had to go somewhere, this is where I would like to go. It was clean. They're doing some remodeling, and in their apartments, they have nice closet space. They also invited me down to the cafeteria, which was set up nice like a restaurant. It was nice and clean. It was good.

My Mom lives here. I've visited several Senior Assisted Living Communities and by far, it's the best. The apts. are very spacious. It is living royally as grow old gracefully. The Dining room experience alone is enough to "woo you!" The meals are delicious. There are many, many activities and the staff interacts attentively with the residents! Transportation is provided for grocery shopping and local medical appointments. I rate The Parkview 10+ in every area!

I was not impressed with The Parkview Memphis. It was dirty, depressing, and old and didn't have many activities available. The staff did not seem to care whether we stay in there or not. The rooms were fine. I would suggest that they clean the place up. It’s a beautiful old hotel that we used to go there when we were young that they converted. Now, it’s just dirty.

I've been to The Parkview, and it was nice. I would rate the rooms a 7, and the dining area a 10. I looked at the menu, and it was real exquisite. What they need to do is provide some kind of transportation. There's a parking-lot, and you can have your own vehicle. For those people who don't drive, they probably needed to have a bus or a van. It's in a central location in Memphis. It was an old hotel that they changed over to a senior community. It might be out of certain people's price range, and might be a little too pricy for somebody that's on a fixed level income.

The visit at Parkview went well; it was a nice community. The rooms were a nice size for a single person. The staff was nice and you saw them interacting with the residents. The only drawback I didn’t like about it was that it had a smell on one of the floors which really stood out but everything else was fine. They said they were going to get it corrected right away.

The Parkview was an old hotel, but it's elegant, and they said they're willing to refurbish the place. The one that showed us around was very personable and very welcoming. She gave us all the information we asked for. When we arrived, there was a gentleman that was playing the piano in the sitting room and several people were listening to him. They had something available to the patrons to exercise or move around. A lot of the people had cars in that area. It's near the VA hospital who are treating my husband, and that would make it convenient for me, and they do have almost daily trips going there. It was clean, and the rooms were good-sized. Since it's an old hotel, the closets were not big walk-in closets. The bathrooms were smaller, but they said they would refurbish them for somebody that can't move.

My dad is living in The Parkview now, and we liked everything about it. The caretakers are very nice. The neighborhood and the actual facilities are all good. They have a social director. Anytime he can get five or six people to sign up for something, he will do an activity. They have all sorts of classes that are constantly changing, but there are lots of options. They also provide transportation. They do three meals a day except on Sunday, when they do brunch until 3:00. It's an excellent place.

The experience we had at The Parkview Memphis was very good. Everything was very clean and orderly. The dining room was excellent; they had good quality food there. Whatever we asked, the staff usually jumped right to it and tried to take care of it. They go up and beyond what I think they should be doing, but they had done well. I liked their services; their commitment to helping the residents there was real good.

We looked at about 10 or 15 places, and we chose The Parkview Memphis. We get three meals a day, and the staff is very friendly. We have a three-bedroom two-bath room. They have scrabble, puzzles, pool table, card games, and outings. They take you to different places. The Parkview Memphis has a friendly atmosphere, and it is very secure. The doors are locked, and you have to have an entrance the way to get into it.

The staff in The Parkview was helpful, but the place was a little old and they were expensive.

We went to Parkview and we find it pricy. They had some nice rooms. We were satisfied with them except that we weren't too sure if we want to ride the elevator.
