Madison Estates was very nice. It was an older facility, but the staff said they were getting ready to do some remodeling. They had already done some because they had been taking out carpet and putting in vinyl flooring, and it was really nice. The apartment was really nice. The kitchen was a little small for my taste. It had a stove and a refrigerator. Doug was very nice to us. He was very informative. It just wasn't the right fit for us. I only met Doug and the lady upfront, but they were very, very sweet. There was an area where there were some leaves that had blown in the door. From what I could see, it was very clean.

What I like best at Madison Estates is the fact that everything is covered like the food, etc. I like that the most. Their apartments may or may not be well equipped. One of them had a stove and an oven, but usually they just had microwaves. I prefer a stove, an oven, and a microwave. So they were not necessarily well-equipped with kitchen equipment. I would have to bring all of my things to the place, but other than that I don't mind. Otherwise, they were well-equipped. Everyone has either a patio or a garden, and that would be nice, too. We went into the place where they serve the food, and it's a very nice place. There was a man playing the piano, and he played very well. It was very nice. They have new ownership, so they're trying to get themselves together. They're still trying to find somebody to repair the air conditioner for the greenhouse so that it could be usable again. It's a very nice greenhouse. They have two different choices for the meals. They have the one that changes every day, and then they have your basic foods that are standardized like hamburgers, cheeseburgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, and other things in case you don't like the regular food. The staff members were very friendly. The people who took me on the tour were very friendly and very pleasant.

Madison Estates was alright. It's just not my style of place. The hallways were very long. The washing machine was all the way down at the end of the hall. I didn't care too much about it. The staff who gave the tour was nice. He was good. I wasn't too impressed with the apartments; I don't think I cared much for them. On the second floor, and even on the third floor, some of the rooms had patios. It was too big, and I don't like huge buildings. The food was good and very tasty, but the menu was very limited. They had a different entree each day, but it was just that one. You couldn't make any selections. You had to eat what they had.

We are moving into Madison Estates. It is nice and we want to be around people our age. They have a lot of activities. They provide 3 meals if you choose not to cook for yourself. We will live in an apartment with a small kitchen in it, which is fine. It has a backyard so I can bring my babies with me, so I got that all setup. The man who has been assisting us is Doug and he is very nice. He's really sweet and very respectful. I decided on this facility because they have a big yard for my dogs.

I thought Madison Estates was very nice. I wouldn't mind living there myself. It's a little bit of distance to walk from the entrance to the actual park, but it's nice and very clean. The staff, I don't recall her name, but she was nice. She had no problem answering our questions and taking us around. We saw a swimming pool, and they have a little exercise area with machines. I did see some of the residents that were there. We saw the dining area, and it was nice.

We toured Madison Estates. I didn't think it was a good fit for my mother, but maybe for someone else. They do a lot of activities, and they have a lot of community events. They're very friendly. It was impressionable. The staff members were helpful. They tried to be attentive to everyone's needs. Even while I was touring the facility, they would be welcoming and kind to the residents who were already there. They would say hello and be social while giving the tour. They introduced me to the residents, so I thought that was nice. The building was older, but they kept it up very, very well. You can see it is highly maintained. They've done renovations and they tried to keep it more modern and current.

Madison Estates looked fine, but the apartments were dated and I was not very impressed with them. The shared spaces were nice, like the cafeteria. The whole atmosphere when you went in was pretty nice. The staff who assisted us during the tour was very good.

I enjoyed visiting here. Our tour was very nice. I loved the place and the amenities that they had, like the greenhouse, the swimming pool, and the exercise room. The lady that I talked to was very professional. She was very detailed in her explanation of things. She was nice. I loved the one-bedroom apartment and its view. It was very nice. They also had a recreation room and transportation for shopping.

We liked them. They were very good. We liked the layout of the apartment. My sister had one option where there was a little patio in the back, which would have been like a private patio. She could let her dog out in the back, but not all apartments have that. There was only a few that actually had that option. The staff was very good. We were given a tour by a lady, and she was excellent. They had programs for recreation, things like bingo, puzzles, Scrabble, and games. We didn't want to put my sister in a home where she just sits there and watches TV. They actually had activities, and that's an important part of this decision making.

Madison Estates was nice. Everybody was top-notch. They're very good at sharing information. It was made very clear what the amenities would be, the costs, and everything. I didn't feel like I was being hustled. It was a very straightforward operation. The beauty of the facility and its location stood out to me. It was a very pleasant living environment and would be a very comfortable place to live.

Madison Estates invited me to come over as they were having a St Patrick's Day party at that time. It was very clean. The dining area was nice and big. They were using a lot of it for the party. The people that I talked to invited me to come on over and play different games with them. They were trying to recruit me to be part of their group, which I thought was nice. They were very cordial. The staff was very good. It's in an area that seems to be very private, too. They have a heated pool, and a greenhouse, and there was a lot around the property (and a lot of trees). So, it is very, very appealing. They showed me two units. One was a plain single bedroom unit and it was very, very clean with a living, dining room, and kitchen area. They just put new carpeting in the bedroom and new tiles in the rest of the apartment. The closet was small though, but they have a nice refrigerator and the kitchen area got plenty of space. They don't have a laundry facility in the rooms, but they have the ability for you to go to wash your clothes at the end of the hall. It's a community type of facility. So, you would have to find out if it's used by who or when. They set up a schedule for that. Once a week, they come and clean your apartment. They vacuum your kitchen and clean the shower and tub. They also have a beauty shop, a library, and transportation. They can take you to the doctors, grocery shopping, and pharmacy within a 10-mile radius (which I think was adequate). On different days, they can take people out to different outdoor activities, like if you want to see a play downtown or something like that.

We toured the Madison Estates in San Antonio. It's independent living. The people and even the patients were nice. The rooms and their dining facilities were remarkable. It's just a beautiful estate and a really nice place. I would recommend it to anybody. It's beautiful and luxurious. The landscapes are beautiful. The whole facility and the layout are just nice. You can tell that they've been around a long time. The staff that toured with us was very knowledgeable and very helpful. Everybody there was so helpful and knowledgeable. They gave us all the information that we asked for. Another thing is that they were all honest and honesty is the best policy. For activities, they offer tours going to the nearest grocery stores and the areas around the place. They also have games and a nice swimming pool. It's all very nice and whoever goes there, including us, will be very active.

My sister has now moved into Madison Estates. The staff and even the other residents are extremely friendly and helpful, and so I could not ask for a more helpful, friendlier group. The apartment is conveniently arranged, so it's very livable. The cafeteria setup is very good. The food is good, and the setting is very pleasant. She is new there, but it has been very pleasant so far. She hasn't experienced any of the activities since she's so new, but from looking at what's planned, I think that would also be a 5. They have various games, they've got exercise classes, and they've got excursions on the van and trips to the store on the van. So they've got plenty. They've got a pool and they've got an exercise room.

The location of Madison Estates is fairly good, it's near the medical center, and pretty easy to get to. It was very clean, the staff was helpful, and the food was very good. During our visit, they served us supper, which was very good. It's also nice that I will be getting three meals a day when I've moved there. It's clean and bright and it just looks good. The staff was very friendly, they were very knowledgeable in sharing information, and answered questions. They had quite a few things to offer. I think on Fridays, they take a trip on their bus and they would take the residents to various places so that they would see some interesting things. I've asked them to replace the carpeting with vinyl because at home, I got my toe stuck in the carpeting and I fell and hurt my face pretty badly so I didn't want to do that again.

My sister is currently living in the Madison Estates. I found the facility to be very comfortable. The staff is very friendly. The apartments that we saw were very nice, clean, fully carpeted, and had some beautiful views from the balcony windows, and it just looked like a place we wanted to get more information about. We're very pleased so far. They all are very knowledgeable. When I called with questions they knew my sister's name, and when I asked them to do any kind of repair, or to check on something, they followed through right away. I was very, very pleased with that. The facilities are great. It would have been easier for my sister if they had the washing machine and the laundry area on the same level. Obviously, you have an elevator, but it is just a little inconvenient.

My tour of Madison Estates was great. It was thorough. We met some of the residents that are there and seemed to be very happy, so my dad was very pleased. He thought it was a very nice-looking place. The staff who assisted us during the tour was great. He was really good with my dad. He was thorough. He gave us all the information. He had all the answers, and that's always a great thing. The facility was beautiful. The pool was crystal clean. The plants were well taken care of. Everything was great. No complaints that I could see on any part of the facility. We did not try the food, but they actually gave us a menu. They told us that a chef prepares it. My dad is not a finicky eater, so it is not that critical; it seemed nice. We went and saw the activity calendar. We even met the pastor that does services for nondenominational Christians, which is what we are. It had a pool table, which my dad loves. There were people in there playing games. We love it. I'm hoping we could get my dad to move in there.

Madison Estates was very sweet and very nice. I liked it a lot along with the staff and everybody else there. Their community is very lovely. It seems like the residents just love to engage with you and that type of thing. It's not comfortable for my father, however, but still, I could see them being respectful to him so it was very nice. It's a modernized independent living community. It had 3 meals included like dinner, breakfast, lunch, that type of thing. This one was just higher end and much more modernized. There was no pull cord, but they had a button that the residents could press if they needed immediate assistance because they have 24-hour service on staff. They offered us food and the director encouraged me to try to get my dad to agree to stay for lunch. I went ahead and followed suit and towards the end, it calmed him down. So just that the director knows what to do, is really nice. He didn't eat anything but dessert, but still, my brother and I did and we liked the food. I have to say, if my father could get the money from the VA to support a facility like the Madison Estates and if he was comfortable with the overall engagement, which I enjoyed, we would consider the Madison Estates.

We had a very good tour of Madison Estates. They were very cordial. I got to see everything I wanted to see. They answered my questions, and gave me all kinds of handouts. It was clean, the people were friendly and professional. The rooms had good, good closets. I mean, it was nothing that I would moo about, but they look comfortable. They had activities if people want to do their hobbies, and an exercise room.

My mom will be moving into Madison Estates. It was fine. I have not really seen the services, but it seemed OK and nice. The staff, Josie, was extremely nice, and the girl in the front -- I believe her name was Courtney -- was very helpful when I first came in. It is a gated community, which I liked, so it is a little bit safer than where she is in now. There was a pool, so there were kind of arms going out around it. The pool was very well kept. The bushes were all brown because we had a bad freeze here in February. They had a nice deck overlooking the pool where they can have events when everything's opened up, and that was kind of a nice feature. They seemed to have a good layout. Their tables were distanced, and they had extra tables out in a little activity room where people could eat if there are more people going to the dining room. They seemed to have thought of everything. They responded to my text because I wanted to know about the nurse practitioner, and I wanted to know about other things. Courtney was going to look into the COVID shot for me because my mother had one and needed her second shot. The place was very clean.

My mother’s move in date is March 2. This is the facility she picked. We like after 3 mos it goes month to month. They offer more amenities than other ones did. She likes that JCC will pick her up and that they will take her to dr apptmts. She is excited about her move.

I'm living in Madison Estates now and I've been really fine. The meals are good and the people are very helpful. You have to make a reservation for where you want to go, but they have pretty good transportation from what I can see. At 10:00 I usually join the fitness class. They had an event yesterday which was for International Clowns Day, so they brought a group of clowns in. It was nice. The food is good, so I'm eating too much.

Everybody at Madison Estates was really helpful. I wasn't expecting to have a hotel type of atmosphere that I experienced, but it was very nice. I was more looking for apartment style living, not so much the hotel style living. The guy there was so cute and funny. Everybody seemed to be in a very good mood. He was very lively and just very charming. The residents were mostly ladies. The facility itself was nice. I really wasn't looking for a hotel type of setting, but it's still something up on my list. I got a very good feeling from it. He showed us the pool and they also have a big reading room.

Madison Estates had many similarities as in the other ones such as the activities and the chef prepared meals. The rooms were spacious and beautiful. If you have your furniture, you can take it, but if you don’t, they will provide some for you; they will furnish your apartment. The travelling and the sightseeing are also enjoyable. The staff is almost standing at attention, and they do their utmost.

The staff at Madison Estates was very friendly. It’s kind of a long way to walk to the dining rooms; there’s one on the third floor. I liked the storage options. You get big room, like a locker room, where you can have a space to put suitcases and Christmas decorations and stuff. I’m in my 70s, and I know there are younger people, but it seemed to me that the residents were more in their 80s. I would consider that place in a few years. They have an outside swimming pool and a green house that a group of high schools students took on as a project. It’s really nice for people who like to garden and get outside and sit. I have nothing negative to say about my visit there.

She has the meals there and they are very good. They do have activities there. They have bingo and church services. They have a fitness center. They have a lot of options. They take them to Wal-Mart. They take them to different places and different outings and so forth. The cleanliness of it is very nice. It is very clean. My mother's room is very spacious.
