Independent Living Reviews for The Clairmont

My wife and I visited this facility a couple years ago for my Mom. It was very dated. A few months ago we looked again. Wow what a change. They have updated their apartments, grounds are well kept, Staff was down home friendly. Mom was happier with the visit this time and we moved her in. They advertise as independent living and boy do the mean it. Mom has made new friends and could not be happier. I've seen more life in her in 3 months than I've seen in a couple years. Food is great. Lots of activities for seniors. They have bands and choirs regularly. This is what retirement for our parents is all about. It's just my opinion, but, I do not see where anybody could go wrong in moving their family into the Clairmont.

I wasn't impressed with Clairmont. It was rundown, it had a smell about it, and the facility wasn't kept well. They had a list of activities.

The Clairmont was an older facility and a little dated but nice. It didn’t seem to fit and was a little further from me. The staff was very friendly and gave us good information. We met the chef who was a really nice guy. The food was really good, and the people were friendly. It seemed well run.

We liked the location of The Clairmont. They had everything. They had bingo and other things. The staff was very friendly. They showed us everything that we asked for. They showed us the one-bedroom efficiency and the larger room like the one-bedroom and the two-bedroom. I thought they were very nice. They served three meals, and they had snacks all the time. They had service if you needed them to take you somewhere.

The Clairmont was cheaper than anything else in town; that was a big point. The staff was very good and nice. My parents haven’t had any complaints. They have three meals a day there.

The reason for a 3 star review is due mainly to the CIGARETTE smell. My 2 family members live there. There apartment breaks of smoke smell. The whole place smells of it. You smell it when you walk in the front door. And there's a gold sign right on front door at top that says "No Smoking"!! Not true. They are allowed to smoke in there rooms by paying a 250$ fee extra. How is that healthy or safe?? These are elderly individuals. Second hand smoke is worse that smoking itself! An my family members both have lung issues and on is on oxygen. A lot of the residents are on oxygen. That is dangerous! Buying a special spray isn't going to get rid of the smoke. It's in the walls and ducks! Saying " This spray costs 50$ for the smoke smell " to everyone like it's the non-smokers fault one or two residents can't be forced to smoke outside or removed. Ridiculous! An the meals are very high in sodium an if your diabetic you better bring your own food sometimes cause your sugar is going to go sky high along with your sodium an blood pressure! Pasta of some kind in almost every meal. Why can't they work with a dietician an offer some low sodium or low carb meals for the price these people are paying. The whole place needs updating big time. It's like 1982. They can't keep their staff either. No apartments are being cleaned right now. Well my family members hasn't been cleaned in I think 2 wks. I've been doing it. One elevator! Everyone duking it out to get on it for meal times.! The smoke smell is pretty bad. But' when my family members signed contract they were given the assumption the smoker would be moving soon. Nope. Still there after 2 months! May be moving somewhere were no smoking period like all the other facilities in Amarillo!!The other residents seem nice an just want to talk an have some company.

The Clairmont had a very warm atmosphere. The people were very friendly, and there were many residents around who seemed very happy. The managers knew everybody's names and call them by name. It had a family atmosphere. They had three meals and ways to get them to places with transportation available, but you have to let them know ahead of time. They had on-site laundry and an area where they had games and coffee. The food was very good because they have their own chef. I was very impressed with the food. They also had prayer at the mealtime and bible study once or twice a week.

My wife moved into Clairmont. I don't have any complaints about the staff, and everything seems to be fine so far. The rooms are adequate and big enough for a couple. They have bingo, card games, different kinds of entertainment, and a bus that takes them around and shows them different places. The food needs improvement, but the place is less expensive.

I visited The Clairmont. Walking in the door, the first thing that struck me was that there was a smell of cigarette smoke in the air. They're trying to phase out smoking, but there's still a resident there who does smoke, and it permeates. The rooms were small, and it seemed very crowded in the dining room. I wasn't impressed with it.

The people that we saw at The Clairmont were very nice. The community was very nice, had a very caring atmosphere, and had happy people. It was a very nice place, and the staff seemed to be very caring. The rooms were nice and included a balcony and windows that they could look out of and see what was going on outside.

What my mother likes about The Clairmont was the fact that she can have enough space to have all of her furniture, and she has a backdoor that she could let her dog out. She has a patio that was big enough, and she can put her swing on it. She also likes the fact that she gets three meals a day, and they have a chef, so the food is really good. The people are super nice, and she says she feels like she is at home now. They do field trips, and they have a bus that is available for them any time if they need to go to the doctor or go to the pharmacy. They have indoor activities like bingo, card games, and board games. They have a library, which she likes because she likes to read. They have an exercise room where she can go and ride the bike to keep her legs strong. She is very happy there. The staff is very good.

I visited The Clairmont for my mother. I pretty much made up my mind to go with this facility because they had a room available, and I needed to move her in there soon. The Clairmont was good. They have a large dining room, and they offer three meals a day. They have laundry facilities, and they also have housekeeping services. They offer onsite home health care. They have a beauty shop and different activities. We looked at a one-bedroom and two studio-type apartments. They're adequate. They have a balcony and some of the first floor apartments have separate entrances coming from outside. The staff was excellent. For activities, they have regularly scheduled Bible studies and church services, they have corn hole toss games, and they have music. I know they're having a big Halloween party. However, they could improve on some of the carpet that was a little dated in the hallways, and they had a water leak in the ceilings that hasn't been repaired yet.

I'm currently residing at The Clairmont. This is a much smaller and more intimate family-type of a facility. It is a well-maintained community. I have a one-bedroom. It is carpeted, and it is very clean. I also have a kitchenette with a dorm size fridge, but no kitchen. What I like about this place is that they have three meals a day. They have a beautiful dining room. It is very, very nice. Regarding the staff, they all seem pretty well committed. Also, they are very energetic.
