Independent Living Reviews for The Garden Club

The Garden Club is great. You can bring in help if you need it. Everything is safe, clean, and upbeat. It’s just a really good place. My impression was this is just the best place. It was just a little too upscale for my mom because she is a very down-to-earth person. She likes something that’s more casual, and not too fancy so she won’t be comfortable in this kind of place. The dining area is clean. The rooms are nice too, and does not have that distinct smell. They have bingo. They have Bellevue Club basketball teams, and they travel to different places to play basketball against other teams. The staff who assisted me was great, and very accommodating.

We saw The Garden Club for my mother. I liked the place fine. It was probably my least favorite of the three I visited, though. The community was fine. The thing that impressed me the most was the Veterans Wall. We appreciated that. It looked like there were some good activities, like a karaoke thing that was going on; people seemed to be enjoying themselves. We only saw one room, and it was actually too small for my mom.

The staff was very good, and everybody seemed kind and friendly at The Garden Club. The rooms looked good, and the facilities were good. It was a good location. They seemed to offer many of the things that many of the other places offer. The only drawback that I would see is that my brother is a vegan, and there isn't a lot of flexibility on their menu. You can't order the food that you like, and there wasn't much of a selection, just a little bit of alternative. The rooms were nice, and they promoted a little bit of independence. They had a refrigerator and a microwave. They had a lot of good activities to draw you out of your room. They offered good cable TV, movie nights, various entertainment, and puzzles. They had an exercise room and a common social area in several places throughout the community, particularly on the main floor. It was a bit of an older crowd. My brother is 65, and he would be one of the younger people there. They also run shuttles to different activities as well as to the grocery store.

The Garden Club has quite a few couples, and that’s one thing we like better. The price is less, and we liked the dining room arrangement better in others because they had a two hour span that you could come in and eat. The meal is served at one time, and there’s 75 people in the in the dining room at one time so it gets noisy, but the food is good. There are tables, you order from the menu, and you have choices. Everybody was very courteous, and it has better access to outside areas for me to walk my dog.

I am happy with The Garden Club. It is not perfect, but nothing really is. They have a nice bunch of residents here. Holiday Retirement is a very big corporation. The locals have little authority, and I think that is where the problem starts. The criticism I have about the place is the orderliness. They are tight with money, and that is why it is difficult to get maintenance done. This particular facility has a parking space that is inadequate. I don't really have a problem with the food, but a lot of the residents complain about the high salt content. Other than that, I think this place is pretty well run. The three activities that get most of the people are bowling, bingo, and sing alongs. They also have bus rides. They do a mystery tour once a week. They also have a large group of health care providers who come in here for those residents who need it. I could say that the staff here is terrific. They are very pleasant and confident. I think very highly of all of them.

We were able to eat at The Garden Club (13350 SE 26th St). The food was OK, but it wasn't the greatest in the world. Their places were small, and that is one of the things that somewhat concerns me, but I loved the staff there. The staff is just fantastic. I liked the location there, too. I think it is a good location. It seems to be pretty convenient to everything. But I have to say that the staff was what really got me there. They were the ones that I was really excited about. I was also excited about some of the programs they had. They'd go for a Sunday afternoon drive sometimes, to get out and go somewhere or do something. They genuinely care about the people who live there. It's not just a job.
