Independent Living Reviews for The Conservatory at Alden Bridge

I visited this facility

The Conservatory at Alden Bridge was excellent, and it's enclosed. It's pretty much all independent. They do have nursing care that's there in case there was an emergency. Something I like about them is that they have a little buzzer that's on top of your door going out into the hallway that would take you to the breakfast or lunch or the activities, and if that door doesn't open by 10:30 in the morning -- or somebody has not seen you at breakfast -- they will come and check on you. It's not a buzzer that makes any noise, but a buzzer that will ring at the service desk in the front. I guess it lights up when a door hasn't opened. They have counseling services, and they're very good at having continuing education classes. They have arts and crafts, swimming, exercises, own movie theater, and beautiful pools. I'd highly recommend them. There's a nice-sized patio out in the front, and they're even willing to let me have a gate, so I can take my dog in and out going from the inside directly outside rather than going through the hallways of the apartment complexes. The patio on the first floor has a fence around it. They are extremely cooperative. Each apartment has its own ability so you can do your own wash, and they're large enough for 2 people. There are several different options according to square footage, and of course your price is according to the size. Another nice thing about it is that if you're dissatisfied with it for 90 days, they will refund your entire amount, which I think is a tremendous thing.

I am/was a resident of this facility

My wife and I are getting settled into our third month at The Conservatory at Alden Bridge. Overall, our experience has been positive. The staff, generally speaking, goes out of their way to accommodate the people who live here. There are about 250 residents. We have a 2-bedroom apartment that is very comfortable, very up-to-date, and well taken care of. They have on-site access to home healthcare and support from a couple of organizations, and it's close to a shopping center. A lot of activities are being planned within the community, like painting, a clothing program, exercise activities, and an exercise room. There are picnics at the park, luncheons every couple of weeks where they go out, and happy hour every day where they provide a couple of glasses of wine or cans of beer. People gather in the area known as the Safari Lounge with tables and chairs. They have people come in all of the time, like a band who comes to celebrate birthdays for the month. They have a full-time activities director who keeps things going. The food is average and institutional, of course, and I think the chef has a real challenge, especially with a lot of people who aren't very flexible about what and when they eat. This morning, we had breakfast, and they provided a whole variety of fruits and cereals, both hot and cold, and biscuits with egg and bacon. They always have coffee and juices. You serve yourself at breakfast, and then have one large meal the rest of the day. When I first came here, it was like going to a high-class hotel. We're quite pleased. Part of the fee includes a maid who comes by once a week to clean your apartment. The outside is also very well groomed and cared for.

I am moving next week to the Conservatory. It seem like it has everything I want, like a doctor on staff who is actually in the building two days a week, a nurse, and assisted care. They have a swimming pool, exercise room, and provide two meals a day. It is 30 minutes from where I live, but it’s very expensive. They have something going on all the time, including daily bingo, poker, different card games, a movie theater showing two different movies a day, and happy hours in the evening. They have field trips, a genealogy group that I’m interested in, crafts group, a putting green and water aerobics. They have just about everything.

This place offers more and by far the best money can buy. My parents live there and they have never been happier. for those of you that have complaints about the food, participate in the food forum. They go overboard in choices and in accommodating everyone.

The Conservatory cost quite a bit. It would just not fit my dad. It felt like you were in a museum, but it was very beautiful or like a 5-star hotel. They have a lot of cultural events going on. The people there are very nice. The residents dress up, like my dad. I didn’t see any man with actual suit jackets on. Their activities were things like bridge. They have people come in and speak and field trips to museums. The rooms are bigger. They have granite countertops in the kitchen. We stayed for lunch. It was like a fine-dining experience. They use real plates, lead crystal goblets. I’m not for sure if the flatware wasn’t actually silver, but it was very nice.

At The Conservatory at Alden Bridge, they had a very professional staff. It was a very attractive and pleasant facility in an excellent neighborhood. It was a nice place. In fact, if it would have been my choice, that's where my father would have gone. They have activities outside. They have their bus and they take them to the mall, to the grocery, or wherever they want to go. Then of course, they have a daily calendar of things that they do, e.g., bingo or cards. They have a movie cinema on site, where they have a weekly movie. Well, there's studio up to two-bedroom with a pleasant living space and kitchen. Their dining area was a restaurant-style dining area. They have a menu with set items and specials that they can order, and it is brought to their table. The staff was friendly, and the residents that I met were friendly. There were plenty of people engaged in conversation in little areas where they had some table set up.

I chose The Conservatory at Alden Bridge because I think it is the nicest facility with the best food. All of the people were very nice. The residents all seemed very happy. The building itself is only six years old, so it is probably the newest facility that we have visited. I thought the apartments were very comfortable. It has space for a washer and dryer which a lot of the others did not have. It is a full apartment with a small kitchen. All in all, their prices were comparable to everybody else, but they just offered more.

The staff of The Conservatory at Alden Bridge was very nice and very accommodating. They called me twice to go on bus trips with them even though I don't live there. They play cards, Bingo, and they do aerobics. They have a beauty parlor, a swimming pool, and a library. It was very clean, very nice, and very homelike.

My loved one is there several months and loves the place. The units and surrounding settings are beautiful and well appointed. The amenities/activities are good. The staff is exceptional and very friendly. The "lock-in" 3-yr rate is also very nice. There are only a few things that we see that could use improving. Number one item is the food. The food has been hit or miss - and more of the latter. It is either so overcooked that no one can eat it; or it tastes bland and awful. I have heard quite a few residents complaining about it. The Sunday Buffet really needs an overhaul. Gourmet cooking it is not. Also, with the choices for meals always including breakfast - there needs to be more breakfast choices offered besides a continental breakfast. Not everyone enjoys sweet pastries or cereal. Second; Additional guest parking would be helpful as spaces are limited. Third and last; I do not understand why there isn't a shade cover over the pool. The last thing elderly people want is the hot Texas sun beating on their heads! It's not too large that it can't be covered partially. For the money the residents pay, we feel these items need addressing.

I went to The Conservatory, which is close to my daughter's home. My daughter and I went over there on a Sunday. I felt like I was in an art museum. I would love to have A 2-bedroom and 2-bath because I have grandchildren and they could come and stay with me. But they were twice as expensive, and the rooms were suffocatingly small for me. I would rather have a larger room than a fancier room. But it's fabulous. It looks like something out of a movie. It's a lovely place. They have a crafts room, a pool table room, movies every afternoon, and an exercise and physical therapy room. Also, if you want to go somewhere, you need not drive. They don't have a bus, but you'll have a limousine. The staff is just lovely. They're sweet, kind, nice, and gentle women. They were very helpful. It was beautiful. I don't know if that was the best thing. Everything is so fancy for the public activities there, but the rooms are quite small, unless you have lots of money.

One of the places we really liked was the Conservatory. It is close to my children, and it offers a lot of things that we would be looking for there. The staff is wonderful. We’ve had lunch and dinner there, and we liked the food. It just fits us.

The Conservatory is different because it is all for independent living. It looked like a cruise ship on land. It was very delux and very fancy; however, it wasn't going to meet the needs that I needed for my mother. Their rooms were a little bit smaller but the finishing touches were top of the line. It was very beautiful and it was like five-star hotel. They were incredible.

I visited The Conservatory at Alden Bridge. I am currently on their waiting list. It is a very nice facility. It is perfectly beautiful there. I really like it. It is strictly independent. You can get two meals a day. The only thing about it with me, with my income being some Social Security and retirement, it would take everything I make to be able to live there.

I chose The Conservatory at Alden Bridge. The facility is outstanding and it's fairly new only about five years old. I've met so many of the residents and everyone is just an ambassador for the place. I ate there two to three times and it's fantastic. I'm moving in this month. They have fitness and aquatic activities. They have a person who assesses the best program for the residents. They also take the residents to the doctor's appointments and take you shopping if we need to go. They have trips that they go on. They have a theater and they got movies every night. They have a happy hour every 4 o'clock. They have bingos and card games. They almost got all kinds of activities. I like the fact that it's a beautiful resort-like facility. I sure will recommend this place.

My aunt is staying at The Conservatory until this weekend. It is a beautiful place. The apartment that they have is too big for her. The staff is so nice. We were there Sunday and requested a private dining room and they were just accommodating. The food also was wonderful. They have different activities like bingos, happy hours, and movies. They also have a vehicle that would take them shopping. This facility is so nice but it is just too huge for my aunt. Her dementia is starting to get worse so she started staying in her room more often than not. This is an independent living facility, so we need a facility where staff would constantly check on her and make sure that she comes out and mingles with others.
