Assisted Living Reviews for West Fork Village

I visited this facility

I visited and I saw that it's an old place. It is rundown by the appearance of it. The staff who accommodated me was very personal. She was also very informative to me.

It was my second choice, but the area it is in was a little sketchy for me. It was more of in a warehouse industrial district, and not in the best part of Irving. I liked the facility, but I didn't like the surroundings of it. The living quarters were very nice. My mother would have had a first floor apartment with a porch, which she would have been able to go outside, and a bathtub which would've been better for her. They had a very large dining room, and it was more of a buffet style. They had puzzle rooms, and a little store where you could buy things.

I have a place coming up and probably will be moving in next month. It looked like a very nice place. It has beautiful dining room and a beautiful building. The people are very courteous and helpful. I didn't really check their activities, but I know they have a beauty shop and an exercise room.

I have an aunt who lives here, and it is a very good and very nice place. The rooms are decent. She is in a two-bedroom apartment, and they have a really good-sized living room. It is very clean. They have activities and birthday parties. I think the food is very good, and the dining area is very nice.

We really liked this community; if we needed to be put in a place, that is where we would go. They allowed pets but not in the nursing home part. The rooms were good, it didn’t smell bad, and the staff was very friendly and answered all of our questions.

I think the facility was nice. It was very inviting and clean. The staff was friendly. They showed me the different types of living apartments that were available. Those were nice. It seemed like they would be accommodating. Overall, I was pleased with what I saw. It looked like it has all the accommodations that are required in an assisted living facility. The living environment looked OK. Everything looked clean. It was nice and neat. The room was nice, neat and orderly. The facility was painted nicely. There weren't holes in the walls or messed up floors. Everything looked really nice. I would surely recommend this place to others.

It was a little older, and it wasn't exactly where we wanted to be. It was out of our way for where we live. We checked on the rooms; they were nice. I found the staff to be exceptionally nice and professional. I had no problem with the people who were there. I believe that they handled things like bingo, card games, and things like that. It just had an odor about it, and it just wasn't as clean.

This facility is very beautiful and well-kept. The staff is very friendly and readily available to help with any of the residents needs or the visitors needs. The residents are not confined to stay in their rooms, they can walk around the facility and make friends with other residents. They are encouraged to engage in activities each day. They have several sitting areas where they can sit and converse with each other, watch T.V., play cards, etc. The landscaping outside of the facility is also beautiful, there are several places outside that the residents may sit with each other, or with their families and visit while their grandchildren play on the nearby playground.

I chose this facility because it's near my place and it would be convenient for me to visit dad. The staff treated us very well. They were welcoming and I am satisfied with all the information they gave me. The residents there looked okay. It seemed like a happy place there and it felt homey. My father's room is small but sufficient. He would be comfortable in it. The dining area is comfortable and clean. It's a clean facility overall. I think the place is conducive for retiring people and they would enjoy it there.

Independent Living Reviews for West Fork Village

I am/was a resident of this facility

I've already chosen a place in the West Fork Village in Irving, Texas. It's an independent living and I moved in yesterday. It's a lovely place and I think I'm going to enjoy it here. They're pet-friendly, which was a major concern of mine. I have not looked at any amenities because of the pandemic and being in quarantine for 7 days. The staff that I've met are very friendly and they go out of their way to try to accommodate you. The food is great too, I'm surprised. I've only been here one day and so there's been no maintenance done yet. They have housekeeping services every week though and it should be very good. When I moved in yesterday, they were having a watermelon festival and they had a lot of activities planned. I think the value, so far, is very good.

I moved my sister into West Fork Village, and it's very reasonable. It's an older establishment in an older part of town, but on a positive note, it is all the same businesses, schools, and everything as it's been probably for the last ten years. Everybody knows where West Fork Village is in that area. They know what goes on, so I would say it is a very secure neighborhood. It's an older establishment in the town, and the people who live there know that very well. The rent is very reasonable; she has her own little studio apartment. They get all their meals. I think for the most part the food is good, although it is not gourmet. Even at sixty-seven she's one of the younger ones, but the beautiful elderly people are very concerned about each other. It's really a very close community there. There is somebody monitoring the front door, and that's excellent -- that's really good. I would say there's only one staff member who is a little harder to get along with. It's like a moderate home setting. It's not anything gorgeous or elaborate, but for me it's just like my home. It's very comfortable looking, and it's not worn out or anything. It's a place where you can come in and sit down in the living room. There's a piano, and they have a lot of people coming in and playing music. They have wine-and-cheese parties. They always have something going on.

West Fork Village was nice, pleasant, clean, and affordable. The staff was friendly and informative. The rooms were empty. They didn't have anything in there, but they were clean. It's just a standard apartment size room. They had a pool table, arts and crafts, bingo, puzzles, a library, internet, and karaoke.

My sister is at West Fork Village. It is a wonderful atmosphere. The staff is very friendly. She is in a studio apartment that has a screened-in balcony, and there are lots of lights coming into the room. It is very secure. There is a person sitting at the front door twenty-four hours a day making sure nobody comes in. It is a facility in an older neighborhood, so there are a lot of businesses and houses in the area. They have activities. She comes down, and she sits out on the front porch. There is a recreation area, a parlor, a living room, and a piano, and they also have church services twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays. She likes the amenities, the activities, and the different places. It is very clean, too. The price is very reasonable.

West Fork Village is my favorite from the ones I've looked at. It is very nice. I did not get to see a whole lot of it because of Covid, and they can't show a lot of other areas. But the apartment was the biggest, and most attractive and nice. The outside is very nice and well-kept. I saw their lobby and the dining room.

My friend is here, and my overall impression is good. The rooms are really nice, and the people are good and friendly. I met the residents, and they said they liked it there. I heard the food is good and has a lot of choices. They have a pool table, TV, and trips on occasion.

Overall, I'm pleased with this community. I like the nurse on staff. He's very caring and takes a very personal approach. My dad's efficiency room is very nice, comfortable, and has everything he needs. He seems content there. It's easy to get to, and the grounds are nice and well maintained. They tell me he's eating well, and eats 100% of all of his meals. We've had a little bit of confusion with the transportation but that's about it.

My aunt is here, and we save almost $2,000 a month compared to the one they are before. It is big thing, and we are getting everything exactly the same. When we moved her in, they are in the process of remodeling all the rooms, including her room, so she has a brand new room to start with. They have lot of card games, especially bingo, which is my aunt's favorite game. I will recommend it to others.

I visited this facility

It was very clean. The lady who showed me around was very nice, she was lovely from beginning to end. The smallest room was 400 sq. ft. but it was big enough. It was set-up so that you could have everything you needed like the bed and couch, although the closet was not too large. We had lunch and I was surprised that the food was very good. The thing that bothered me was they only brought you food for 3 days a month, I guess you had to be in the assisted living area if you wanted more than that. My only problem was the long distance to walk from the room to the eating places.
