Assisted Living Reviews for The Wellington at Arapaho

The one that I like best is called The Wellington (The Wellington at Arapaho). The people who live there were super nice. I would recommend this community. They have the 3 meals. They have all kinds of things for the people who live there to do. They have a lot of options for the people who live there. They have pretty much everything. They have lots of activities. They have games, and they have exercise programs. They have pretty much all the same things all of them do -- e.g., places where they can get their hair done. They have all different types of games. My mom has already decided that she likes The Wellington.

I signed up with Wellington; they have assisted living and independent living, and right now I needed assisted. Everything looked good to me. The staff was confident and nice. They had two dining areas, which looked very nice, and a lot of activities, like trips to the store.

My mother has been living in Wellington since the end of March. I’m not entirely happy with it right now. I was promised something that is no longer being offered, and it was making me upset and hindering my mother from being as independent as I’d like her to be. The facility has been going through remodeling since we’ve been there. They’re taking out the carpet that I like and putting in ugly ones. The facilities are nice for independent living and not so nice for assisted living, and my mother lives in the assisted living. She reports that the vegetables are often overcooked, which a lot of the seniors liked, but any breads or desserts are very good. There’s a salad bar and dedicated servers in the building. She’s very happy with the lady who does her hair.

I visited The Wellington at Arapaho. The staff was wonderful. They showed me around while they were in the process of remodeling. The rooms were small but very nice. The price was good.

I chose the Wellington because of the price and what they offered. Everything is fine except that the food gets a little bland. I have plenty of room here. The staff is very good, everyone is so friendly. Their activity directory is one of the best.

I visited this facility

The Wellington at Arapaho was very nice. They had a few studios and one and two-bedroom apartments. Their facility was very well kept up and nice. The people were friendly. They didn't have a bus service to the church, but they had a beauty parlor and a nurse in the facility at times. I really liked it. They had a game room, exercises, and bus to shopping. It was impressive when I walked in.

The Wellington was very nice. I had no complaints about the facility, but it was a little bit on the expensive side.

My mom is at the Wellington. They have very friendly employees. I have eaten there a couple of times, and the meals are OK. She wished the rooms were bigger. Some of her friends were there, she's in the book club, and it's in the neighborhood where she's lived for 15 years.

The Wellington at Arapaho's food is like good home-cooking. We just felt like this fit my mother better, and it feels more like home for her, and it's just more of her kind of environment. It's a really large facility, and my mom is in assisted living, which is a comfortable size. It's not so big, so she can't get lost in it. The staff is really friendly, and the people who live around her are friendly. She's been enjoying it quite a bit. There are just very simple hallways, and it's just 1 story. It's a protected area with alarms that go off if anybody opens one of the outside doors. They have a couple of very simple indoor courtyards. She feels safe; she has people check on her and people who remind her to go to meals and activities. It's a really good place.

The Wellington at Arapaho is a very nice place, and it’s one of our top choices. Their rooms were very nice, but they were a bit small. The staff was very nice during our visit. They are very caring as well.

I like The Wellington (The Wellington at Arapaho) very much. It was very nice. Their apartments were very nice. The one thing that I did not care for was that there aren't any washers and dryers in the apartments. There is a washer and dryer for so many rooms on a floor, but I’m looking for a place that has a washer and dryer in the apartment. They have a salon, a library, and activities that I would be interested in, like bridge and card games.

I toured the independent living of The Wellington at Arapaho. It was nice and quiet. The food was good, and you could get half servings. They were completely renovating it. The staff was very nice.

We toured The Wellington. They were well staffed. We saw a couple of residents, but we did not talk to anybody. The rooms were clean and nice. The neighborhood seemed nice, and we live a mile away, which was why we liked it.

I pick The Wellington for my mother because they have larger rooms. It has rooms that actually have a bedroom and a living room with a kitchenette. They have more activities throughout the day, like they have exercise every morning from 10:00 to 11:00, Mondays to Fridays. They have activities in the afternoon. I like that they are all in one floor. They serve a large quantity of food. I do not know how it tastes, but it looks OK. They have an alternative menu that she can order from, if she does not like what they are serving that day. For the most part, I think the staff is fairly good. They come, wake her up in the morning, and tell her to get ready for breakfast. If she does not come for breakfast, they will come and get her. They come and get her when it is time for exercise and other activities. Most of them are quite nice.

I went to visit The Wellington at Arapaho, and I saw that they didn’t have a full kitchen. What they had is an apartment-size refrigerator and a cabinet, and that's it. Their apartments were tiny, and that would not fit my husband's needs.

We visited The Wellington at Arapaho for my mother. It felt much more confined, and the concept was not as open as the other facility. It looked clean, but the building itself was very dark on the inside. It was adequate, but they just didn't offer the variety of things that the other facility offer. The staff was friendly though.

The thing that I liked The Wellington at Arapaho was that they had an apartment, and then they also had meals also for their residents. They also had the assisted living attached to it. The only thing I didn’t like about that one was it was an older facility, and it had some funny smells in it, but other than that, it was a little bit too far away from me.

The Wellington at Arapaho is expensive. I looked at the rooms that were available. They change the carpet every time they change residents and paint the walls. After the interview, an older lady -- who I believe was the manager -- came in, I told her that I had several other places to look at and that I would get back with her if I decided on it, and she said, "Why'd you be back?" It was very condescending. It just wasn't as good an atmosphere, and it didn't seem that they were as interested in the residents as they should be. They weren't personable.

The Wellington at Arapaho is just amazing. You would never know it's a 10-year old facility because it looks brand new. My mom is not staying there yet and we just moved furniture yesterday. But based on what we've seen, it's all positive. The residents seem so happy. It's nice, clean and neat. The grounds and everything else are pristine. We also like the friendliness of the people and what they offer for the menus. It's just fantastic. They are wonderful.
