Assisted Living Reviews for Cardinal Senior Living

August 01, 2018

By Peter

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

Cardinal Senior Living is small and they seem to show a lot of personal attention. It's clean, comfortable, and it's good overall. They take the residents out on occasional outings, they went out for ice cream yesterday, and folks come in to play games and do crafts with them. They do lots of stuff with them on a regular basis. The value is really good as well. It seems to be a really good community. They eat family style, and it's good for them.

This community is one of the cleanest I have seen. The staff are friendly and the administrative staff are very professional and welcoming. Everyone we visit activities are going on and the resident are so happy !! What an experience.

I toured Cardinal and I did not care for it. I think they had to do so much work to upgrade the place, and they've made a lot of improvements over the recent years, but it's just not everything I've hoped for for my step-dad. The administrator and owner who gave us theaq tour was excellent. The dining area needs upgrading. The tables are just like kitchen tables. They really didn't have much and they're weak on amenities.

Provider Response

We appreciate your feedback. Cardinal Senior Living is consistently striving to improve in every aspect of operations including the overall appearance of our physical plant. Many improvements have been made in our first year of business and we continue to look for opportunities to improve in the upcoming year including an upgrade to our dinning experience. As we move forward with these improvements, our focus is and will continue to be great care and exceptional customer service for all those we serve.

I found Cardinal Senior Living to be an excellent facility. The staff seemed to be very caring. I had no issues with them at all. They were quite above board. They showed me examples of each of the facilities that were available. The staff member that I encountered was very professional and caring with the residents that I saw. The facility was clean and attractive.

I visited Cardinal Senior. Except for one resident, they were very friendly, but it's just not what I was looking for because I didn't want a roommate. The person who assisted me answered my questions, he was very helpful, and informative.
