Assisted Living Reviews for The Colonnades

May 29, 2012

I visited this facility

My experiences with the Colonnades have been mostly positive. Interacting with the residents has allowed me to gain a realistic perspective of life at this facility. I can honestly say that I believe this is one of the best assisted living facilities in the Charlottesville area. The staff is always friendly and works very hard to ensure that their residents are well taken care of. On several occasions I have witnessed situations where staff member were busy and stressed but still maintained the level of respect and care that the residents deserve. The facilities can be described as elegant but welcoming. The maintinance crew does a wonderful job of keeping the grounds looking lush and beautiful. The inside of the building is well taken care of and pleasant as well. The abundant windows make the common area feel comfortable and welcoming. The few times that I have dined at the facility have been just "ok" although I would attribute that the dietary needs of the residents. Overall, I think the Colonnades is a wonderful assisted living community.

Continuing Care Retirement Community Reviews for The Colonnades

I visited this facility

The Colonnades was gorgeous but cost over $5,000 a month, and I don’t have that kind of money. I saw a lot of people moving around as there were a lot of people catching up. The rooms were gorgeous and had a washer and dryer in the units. I did have lunch there, and it was very, very good. If I had unlimited funds, The Colonnades would be great.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother has lived at the Colonnades, a senior living community, for nearly 7 years. I am continually impressed by the professionalism and compassionate care and concern of all the staff. The community's executive director, is very visible and participates in the weekly Wii bowling tournament with the residents. The new staff are given a book with photos and names of all residents so that within a few days of moving in every new resident is greeted by name. it truly is like a new extended family and I rest easy knowing that many good people are looking out for my mother. My mother is in independent living, but health care, nursing care, and a dementia unit are also part of the community. I highly recommend the Colonnades.

Within close driving distance to Colonial Williamsburg, the Carolinas, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., we are also closely situated to the Historic Downtown Mall, Barracks Road Shopping Center, hospitals and medical centers and golf courses. We pride ourselves in our bright, airy and spacious cottages - each with a covered porch, a full kitchen, a garage and backyard with room for a private garden.
