Assisted Living Reviews for Commonwealth Senior Living at Oak Ridge

May 08, 2017

By Holly165217

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

We moved my mother in about 2 weeks ago. She’s still adjusting, but I think she likes it. The staff is very nice. She’s in a studio right now. I’d like to see them have a separate bedroom within the assisted living floor to make it seem more like a home. Right now, it kind of seems like a hotel room, but we’re hoping maybe she can move to independent-living later on as she gets stronger. She likes the food. Some of the activities are a little repetitive, but they have quite a few. They have shuttle services. The grounds are very nice and very well kept.

It was very nice. We're impressed with what we saw. The staff was delightful, but the apartment she showed was a little small. We had lunch there, the food was fine, and the menu looked good to me.

We had a very good visit. The executive director hosted us for a tour of the premises. We liked the place. The only thing that would have been negative was that it was multi-story, and you had to get up and down on elevators. They had a puzzle room and various places to do crafts. There was a library and a television center where they did a variety of things. It's definitely a very nice facility. We were treated very well and were very pleased with what we saw.

I've been quite satisfied with this community, and my parents have too because my mother is independent while my father is currently in need of a fairly high level of care, but he is improving steadily. They chose to go there several months ago from California, and after looking at and talking with my siblings, we were visiting several assisted living communities here in East Tennessee. The rooms are quite satisfactory.

My parents chose this place, and they have been there for a month now. The place is great, and they love it there. The employees are very attentive; they really like it there. They have a large bedroom which they are together, and the other room is there office or computer room. They also like that the food is great. They are also near their doctors who that is nice as well. There's some kind of an outing everyday and multiple activities throughout the day.

Everyone was so gracious and welcoming. We were so impressed. We were invited for lunch, and the chef came up to our table and talked to me. You couldn't ask for anything better. They were going to redo the entire apartment for another person coming in.
