Independent Living Reviews for Solstice Senior Living at Point Defiance

I visited this facility

Solstice Senior Living at Tacoma was very nice. It's an older building, and it's being remodeled. We had a friend that lived there. The residents were friendly and introduced themselves. The lunch we had was adequate. The staff member during the tour was very polite, and the housekeepers were delightful. The apartments were clean and had everything you needed. The dining area was good. The food, the coffee, and the dessert were good.

Solstice Senior Living at Tacoma was overall pretty good. The apartments were nice. The facility was looking older, but they told us of the remodeling efforts that were beginning soon. They had karaoke, some other activities, and a library. The staff was busy. The dining area looked clean and orderly. We saw a garden out in the concourse type area maintained by one of the residents.

Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Our remodeling efforts are underway and we are bringing a fresh, Pacific Northwestern feel to Solstice Senior Living’s Point Defiance community! We invite you to join us again at the completion of our renovation to see the updates. Please give our Executive Director, Lisa, a call.

My mother is in Solstice Senior Living at Tacoma and so far, so good. The food is good and they've been very accommodating with a lot of her demands like having a tub instead of just the shower. They have the gym and they try to keep the people engaged. I like that it's really big and open and bright.

I liked Solstice Senior Living at Tacoma. It had the kind of services available that I am most interested in. I was amazed at how large the units were and the wide variety of sizes. The food was very good. The dining room was nice and well equipped. The staff was fantastic and very attentive. They had sufficient number of staff on duty that no one had to wait for their food. It was better service than what you would find in a restaurant.

It was a little awkward to get to because they were doing construction in the street that day. The tour was OK, but the place was small. The staff member was OK, but she was really in a hurry.

Dad and I really liked everything about it. It was perfect. I liked the atmosphere. We saw the residents, walked around, and saw the rooms. There were some residents doing puzzles, bingo, and card games, and Dad interacted with them.

We really liked it. It was a long way from where we lived right now, but it was very nice. We got a meal there, and it was good too. The people felt fairly content with where they were. I was really impressed with them.

I visited this facility

We visited and it’s very attractive. It didn’t have an assisted living facility that our long-term care insurance would supplement. It looks very comfortable but it serves people who are able to live more independently than we are. We didn’t have any real objections to it as far as being a nice facility. They have lovely grounds, and the people were kind. For the people it was suited for, it’s a 5. It is well known and well thought of.

I am here. I like that the food is nice, and it has very nice people here. I have a little studio apartment. It is very small, but it is neat, and I am pretty well satisfied with it. There are quite a few activities. They have card playing, bridge, pinochle, bingo, puzzle, and karaoke, and they had a beanbag ball group. It is a nice place, and I really enjoy it here.

The people in here are independent and pretty healthy. The staff are wonderful, and whatever I need, they help do it. They have one and two-bedroom rooms and cottages that you can rent. The meals are good, and the dining room is a cafeteria type thing. We got a walking club, bean bag baseball -- and we compete with other people from other places -- cards, bingo, sing-along, karaoke on Friday nights -- they serve beer and wine -- and on Saturday nights, they have a social where people meet each other and they serve drinks.

This facility was good. He had a nice big room, with a back porch. He had a living room, his own room, a kitchen, and the bathroom. They were cleaned twice a week by the maids and they did a nice job and were very helpful. The food was adequate, like any food at a retirement community will be. They made so much at once that it was hard to create personalized meals, but what they did have was good. The atmosphere was nice too. The community had events going on such a bingo nights, game nights, and during the winter season they held a gingerbread house competition. It kept people active.
