Assisted Living Reviews for The Waterford at Fitchburg

October 14, 2020

By HAS

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

They have several room sizes to choose from. My parents are in a 2 bedroom with a den for their computer. they are 89 and 91. My mom especially enjoys walking around the facility with her rollator and grabbing a couple pieces of fresh fruit that is always available. the balcony gives her a chance to care for plants that we give to her, and a beautiful view of the Koi pond. They started out on the meal plan, but now feel comfortable cooking in the apartment.

Provider Response

Thank you for your positive review HAS! We deeply appreciate the encouragement and support during this challenging year. Thank you and Happy Holidays!

We really liked The Waterford at Fitchburg a lot. The apartments were wonderful, large, had a full kitchen, and a full dining room. It was a beautiful community, but when we run out of money, they will not take Medicaid. So we would have to move. The food was wonderful. The staff was very nice and because I'm lactose intolerant he came out to talk to us. The residents like it there as well.

I liked The Waterford at Fitchburg a lot and it was very nice and clean. The apartments were nice and I liked the koi pond outside. They had a touch of nature right in the city. I would recommend it. The staff member who showed me around was absolutely wonderful and I liked her a lot. She had a lot of information, spent a lot of time with me, and made me feel very comfortable.

I went to The Waterford at Fitchburg. When I went there, the place was empty and everybody was gone so I did not meet any of the staff. She said they had an outing or something. There was a variety of rooms and they had options. Every room had a fire place and a balcony that looked out the garden areal. There was a heated swimming pool. It was very luxurious. My interest in it was that I would like to be able to attend things at the University of Wisconsin and I thought there was a bus line and it was not that far from the university. That was my major attraction to it.

I was very impressed with Hyland Park of Fitchburg. The staff was good. The place is very well-maintained and very clean. It's a modern place and reminded me of a hotel. Everything seemed good.

The rooms at The Waterford at Fitchburg seemed big enough. Every time a room opens, they re-do it and get it in better shape. However, when I asked the staff why they had fireplaces in all of them, she said it's because it gets cold in Wisconsin in the winter. I didn't like that they heat the apartments with fireplaces. They were doing a lot of repair on the community. When I ate there, the food was average.

We are on the waiting list of the Waterford at Fitchburg. It is a retirement home, much like any other. I really only met the sales staff, and they were fine. The rooms had full kitchens, and the carpet is low pile, which is better than some. There are lots of shopping opportunities close by, and the grounds are maintained. The thing we liked about it is that to get assisted living, you do not have to move out of your apartment. The assisted and independent living is combined, and you do not have to take meals; you can do your own cooking.

The Waterford was wonderful, and the people were very gracious. It started as a condominium and they converted it into assisted and independent living, so the apartments were rather large, very spacious, and well appointed. The dining area seemed to be adequate. They had a lot of programs and activities for them on a scheduled and had a shuttle to take people around to Walgreens and different areas in town. I think they have their act together and do a really good job.

The Waterford at Fitchburg was absolutely lovely, beautiful, and perfect. I liked the beautiful unit I was shown. It had a fireplace and a balcony, and it was clean. I believe it had a library. I had a nice salad while I was there.

We chose Waterford because of the location; it’s centrally located for all of our family. They also allow pets. The staff was very polite. Everything was well kept, clean, and secure. They have activities. My mother is in there a little over a month and is just starting to get involved in the activities. The food was very good. She has a 2-bedroom condo, and the rooms are a nice size.

The Waterford at Fitchburg was very nice. We just had a short visit, and I didn't see the staff in action. My overall experience was very good, and the surrounding was very nice. I also liked the activities that they had.

The Waterford is about two blocks from where we live now. It was very nice but very expensive. They have people come in to your apartment and give care and they charge extra, so you spend about 5000 a month. I would consider it fairly new. I think it’s been there at least five years, maybe more, so everything looks neat and clean. They have a heated swimming pool. It’s just way out of our price range, though. We had looked at it when it was another company, and the prices were quite a bit lower, but now (with the new corporation) they’ve had this 5000 a month, plus pay extra for things they do and have to charge it by the hour. The staff was very friendly. They had very good food. I don’t like to cook anymore, so that’s important to me. The dining room was very bright and very spacious.
