Independent Living Reviews for GenCare LifeStyle at Point Ruston

July 10, 2021

By Mary

I visited this facility

We went to see GenCare LifeStyle at Point Ruston. It's brand new. It has just opened and not even a year ago. We met with the staff. She was nice. This is all towards the middle of Covid, so we had to be Covid tested when we got there, and she just showed us around a couple of different rooms and what was available. She showed us the fitness room and the pool and everything that my parents could take advantage of. She answered every question we had. We took a video and she was very patient and let us take the time we needed. It was Covid, so there was no food around, but they were talking about an area that is already built like a little expresso area, and then they would be making like cookies and cupcakes and that kind of stuff for all the people that are there. They also had a salad bar that they were getting set up, but due to Covid, they weren't able to do that yet. They're opening the fitness center up. I had nothing bad to say about GenCare, and it was very nice. We looked at both assisted living and independent living.
