Independent Living Reviews for Affinity at Olympia

By living the life

I am/was a resident of this facility

I came here for the safety and convenience of the facility. This is a very active community of seniors, but not pushy. This is the place to be if you love animals. There are dogs everywhere. Maintenance and management do a good job of picking up the dog waste and cleaning the carpets. The lawns are constantly being reseeded to account for the dog urine damage. The pet deposit and monthly dog rent is very small compared to the maintenance that goes into allowing your animal to live here. You and your dogs will love it here.

I have lived at Affinity of Olympia since it opened. . The facility itself, the amenities and the staff are wonderful. The corporation that owns these buildings, however, is not wonderful. They have built these buildings and filled them with people over the age of 55 and show absolutely no compassion or understanding for the fact that we are on a fixed income. I have just received my fourth rent increase which translates to a 3 to 5% increase every time my new lease has come up. We were charged $15 per month to have a cat in your apartment when I moved in. The cat rent has now gone up to $25 a month. Please note that this is on top of a pet damage deposit. With my new lease the fee for a late rental payment has gone from $100 to $200. I would strongly caution anybody considering moving into any Affinity building. You will need to look far into the future and make sure that you are in a financial situation that allows your living expenses to increase on a regular yearly basis. Not only your rent but also auxiliary expenses that management is going to increase on a regular basis. I don't recommend moving into an Affinity. I would like to see a message sent to this management company that conveys the message that if you choose to supply housing for seniors , do it in a responsible manner that reflects and respects the fact that our pension and SS does not increase by 3 to 5 percent yearly.

I have lived at Affinity at Olympia for more than two years. It is such a clean, quiet, comfortable place to live. The entire staff does their best to take care of all the details that make living here like staying at a resort! I feel safe walking my dog on the well-maintained sidewalks. The common areas are well-used for activities that are mostly planned by residents. I especially enjoy having the family dining room available for special events with my children and grandchildren. Affinity-sponsored activities are well-publicized and open to all who choose to participate. Active seniors can find a great place to live at Affinity!

Living at Affinity is like heaven...meticulously maintained, managed by exuberant and caring folks, is loaded with more amenities than I can possibly use, affordable (cable/WiFi provided in a new system by Direct TV). I love the pool, the even and new walkways outside, the fact that dogs are on leashes, so people pick up well after them, and that it is calm and quiet with very, very little drama. Friendly residents. Great parties. A theatre to die for, concerts in the day lounge, and even a "senior" prom. Come, check us out and join an independent community with no pressure to do any more than you want.

I have lived here for 2 years and am very happy. The complex is clean. Management is good. Maintenance is good. You shouldn't move here if you can't live independently. Don't bring a dog unless you are physically able to pick up his stuff.

I have been a resident of Affinity for two years and I love it. I will admit that apartment living was hard for me to get used to at first, but as time went on I adjusted. When I became widowed management helped me transition into a smaller apartment. All my neighbors are a great comfort to me. I love the many activities and the people are great. I also feel very safe here , I had several maintenance issues that were handled promptly.

I love living at Affinity. When I relocated here, I knew no one. Now I have many friends who care about one another. There are many resident led or Affinity sponsored activities. You can do as little or as much as you want. There are many rooms to entertain family and friends. This is a very clean and safe place to live. The staff is efficient and caring. I love it here.

Affinity is truly a great place to live. My wife and I have lived here for 16 months and really love it. Maintenance issues are dealt with quickly and efficiently. We don't even have to change light bulbs! There was an issue in the men's room on a Sunday evening. One call to the the emergency after hours number and maintenance was here and had it fixed in an hour. The management team treats all of the residents with dignity and respect. They go above and beyond to try to resolve residents' issues efficiently. There are numerous Affinity sponsored events each month and dozens of resident led activities. You can be as active as you want. Your level of enjoyment is entirely dependent on what you put into it. My favorite spot is the workshop. I also spend a lot of time in the theater watching baseball and football games. There are many spaces available to entertain family and friends.

I am a current resident at Affinity and have lived here for 2 years. I love it here. We have a lot of activities and are like a big family. I wanted to write something because I see this bad review and it is full of falsehood and is just obviously an angry person. We love our management and they treat everyone fairly and with respect. There has not been mold issues here and it is a clean, beautiful, and safe place to live. Come and see for yourself! You can walk around and see all the fun things we have to do and talk to other residents yourself. Affinity is a fun and beautiful place to live! We are an active community, so there is not "walker" parking, but there is ADA accessibility to all of our amenities, and a staff that cares to make it the best place to call home!

If you have a senior loved one thinking about moving into this place WATCH OUT!! If they are disabled, they can not use their walker to go catch the bus or leave it accessible for them when they return. (Office says they can't do it for just one, so nobody can leave their walkers)..They will have to walk unassisted, no hand rail etc, which will put your mom or dad into to a very dangerous situation. This was not the case when my mother moved in AND no one from the office told us that they were going to make this rule..

In the time I lived there,the facility deteriated very quickly. There is only one cleaning person to clean the whole building and move out apartment cleaning. This is unacceptable. The carpets frequently had stains and actual animal urine and feces were found in hallways and in the elevator. There has been mold found in several of the apartment units. One tenant had to chose to leave the complex after a incident with mold in her apartment and a continued illness. The manager fraternizes with tenants with obvious favoritism for "special tenants" She is very inexperienced and incompetent in her position. Her dishonesty and manipulation of people makes it a very uncomfortable living experience. The are people who have been placed on " bonds" and the manager manipulated their income so they may qualify and receive reduced rent. As "a favor" to her "special" tenants. When I first moved in, it was a fairly "active" group of people. With a "push" to fill all the apartments, the population was reduced to many elderly that would have been better suited in a assisted living facility. All about the money?

The intent of Affinity as they proclaim is good, however in one year multiple problems have arisen and Management has accomplished very little. The current issues plaguing this Facility is: 1. Elevators are out of service multiple times and little is seen to correct. There are tenants that are wheel chair bound and unable to negotiate stairs. 2 Hall floors have stains that have remained for months. There is no effort to have a commercial cleaning service to keep the halls clean. 3. Current management fail to respond to tenant request 4. Communication is sadly lacking in all management levels 5. Stairwells have stains on floors 6. One tenant has a reserved parking spot, this tenant does not have a car 7. It is an embarrassment to say I live here 8. There are no posted evacuation plan and diagram.

Affinity at Olympia is quite pleasant and enjoyable. It is small, yet comfortable. They have activities they are just getting going. They have good offerings, and we had a good come-on that got us here. They have entertainment probably every third week that includes food, and it is very desirable. I have only been here since July 16, so we haven't been here very long yet. There is a swimming pool, which is great, and things to do. The rooms are small, but comfy, and I like cozy. They are well-planned; we like them. What is good about this place is you only have one bill to pay. They cover everything, except your telephone. There are no meals and no transportation, but as far as utilities, they cover all of your utilities. They are not totally full, and so they still have things to learn, but I would give them a five. The only drawback is that it is right over Highway 101, so we hear the highway and we can see the highway.
