Independent Living Reviews for Solstice Senior Living at Rio Norte

I visited this facility

We took a tour of Solstice Senior Living at Rio Norte and we loved it. The people were wonderful, fantastic, they were welcoming, and truly wanted to know some personal information that would help our communication be better with our mother-in-law. We were shown several different apartments, different sides of the building, views, and we are making another appointment tomorrow to bring my mother-in-law there. We received the menus, got introduced to the staff, maintenance, and their directors and entertainment people, and everything was covered. Tomorrow they're gonna prepare meals for us to go.

Provider Response

I visited Solstice Senior Living at Rio Norte. I got to view some of the apartments when I was given a tour of the place. It was very nice. The staff member was a very nice person and he was very detailed about everything. He informed us of daily procedures that they follow right now with COVID. Everything went well. That was the one we really liked. The facility was great.

Solstice Senior Living at Rio Norte is very good. It's a lot better than where my mom was before. My mom's room is very nice and she has access to use the washer and dryer. It's a one-bedroom with a kitchenette, living room, and lots of closet space. We're also paying a lot less there than the previous place she lived. She has cable TV included. The people have been very nice and my mom is very happy. She also says the food is great. For the first month that a resident is there, family members could eat free with them, which was amazing. They've been nothing but professional and very caring for my mother.

Solstice Senior Living at Rio Norte is clean, bright, and cheery. The director was very kind. I saw 1- and 2-bedroom apartments, and they were clean, light, and airy. The place has nice landscaping. What impressed me was if you attend activities there, you get points, and once a week, you can cash in your points for toilet paper, soap, or things that they have out, and I thought that was really unique. The people seemed very friendly. My first impression was very favorable.

It was nice, and I liked it. My father just didn’t want to move in because he kept thinking it was a retirement home, and I tried to tell him it wasn’t. The people were nice. The rooms were clean and an appropriate size for one person, but you would have to bring your own furniture. The grounds were beautiful. They were eating dinner when I went, and the food smelled delicious. They actually have a nice menu, and they give them a menu instead of just telling them that there is one set menu. The place was beautiful. They have a calendar each month of all the activities that they offer for the elderly to come out and do. They have exercise classes and fun things; they have a lot to keep them active.

I like it here. I like the idea of 3 meals a day, and I don’t have to cook them. I like that the staff stay out of my life unless I need something. My room looks like a hotel room with a small refrigerator, very small sink, a bedroom, a bathroom, and a living room. We have exercises 3 times a day. We have bingo and card games, and we play with little balls rolling on the floor.

It was very clean, and they had all the things that I would be wanting; we're going to utilize that one. They were very professional and courteous. They had a chart that showed movies, games, and arts and crafts -- things that I enjoyed doing -- and they seemed filled and booked up all month.

This one of the few facilities we visited that the residents seemed to be happy to be alive.

We spent one afternoon here. The staff did a good job in accommodating us, and that was really nice. They were really first class in everything that they do. The rooms are spacious. This facility is more livable. All the things around it are easier to get to.
