Assisted Living Reviews for Bella Vista

We put mom in Bella Vista, and she fell and broke her tibia. We were not happy with the memory care unit. We had a number of issues the night that she broke her leg. She went and talk to them about it, and they said it looks fine. They called the nurse, and the nurse didn’t come and look at it. She sat for two hours with her leg broken until my brother got there to take her to the hospital. I asked them to please transport mother in the wheelchair because it was too far for her to walk from her room to the dining room, and they fuss about it that very morning that she broke her leg. I have asked to please transfer in the wheelchair, and they argued with me and finally said "OK, we will do that." I think they’re under staffed. The dining area and the food were good with good variety, and the portions were adequate. Their activities director was very involved and very good.

Bella Vista is too expensive for my taste. It is a nice facility, although a little spread out, so there is a lot of walking. It’s a large, nice facility that is well located right across from the park. Between the park and the facility is Lake Winnebago, so you’re about a block away from the lake. It is pretty good. I had a friend who was looking for a facility like that, and since I toured it, I recommended it to her, and now she lives there. It’s one of the top places around and one of the better ones I've seen. It has underground parking, too.

We were not thrilled with what is happening at Bella Vista. They keep changing ownership; in fact, their executive director just left yesterday again. They have been changed four times in the last four years. The RN in charge has also changed four or five times as well. My aunt is independent, but she has gotten pressure ulcers, and I don’t understand why a pressure ulcer happened. The place is beautiful and the apartments are big. There’s a library and a suite where the family can rent to stay there. It’s great for independent living.

Bella Vista is an old hospital that has been converted to senior living apartments and assisted living. It looks like a Hilton hotel; the walls, the carpeting, and everything is beautiful. My in-laws are in a good-sized one-bedroom with a den and lots of storage. Their furniture fit quite well, and it has plenty of open wide spaces and a walk-in shower in the bathroom. It's very homey.

I thought Bella Vista was very pleasant and had the atmosphere of a hotel. It was an older building that used to be hospital or something, so it had a very solid structure and felt like a hotel. The side facing the street was beautiful because it overlooked a park and that park fronted a lake. The rooms themselves were nice. The quarters were a little dark, but the halls were very nice. The staff was very nice. The only problem was there was a big price difference to where my mother is now.

Bella Vista was really cool and had an a la carte system. If you were independent, you could have your own care, but if time went on and you needed assistance, they could give you the additional care that you needed there. I believe they also had detached apartments, but we were in the main facility in assisted living. I got the impression that if my mom took one of the apartments, she could stay as independent, and if she ended up needing assistance, except with Alzheimer’s, she could stay in that room and didn’t have to move. That was one thing we liked about it, but it was over our budget. It was originally a hospital that they renovated. You could get a beautiful one- or two-bedroom apartment. The facility was absolutely gorgeous. We toured the dining room, workout room, and beauty salon. It was really nice. The staff was great, nice, and very pleasant.

Bella Vista was very nice. They had a lot to offer, and the price was reasonable. The hallways were very nice and clean. They had transportation to different places. The only thing I didn’t like was the layout of the room. The staff was very nice.

Bella Vista by far is the best. It is the nicest place, and it is economical too. Nothing else was even close. Their service was excellent. They had very spacious apartments. I put my mother in a one-bedroom unit, and she actually has a washer & dyer in there. They have a step-in shower. It is a great place to be. My mom is there a little over a month now, and she is very happy there. It is the only one I see that had a kitchen and a washer & dryer inside the apartment itself.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I was in the hospital and then they put me in Bella Vista, but I’m not really happy there. I know they've let a few staff go -- those that were nasty to the residents. They make you do things that the doctors didn’t approve of. They have activities here like bingo and music, but I didn’t go down much to activities because my back hurt so bad I couldn’t go. The facility is clean; it’s fairly good. They have a library, a gym and an exercise room. There are two dining rooms here; one is where I go eat and the other, which I never got to, is where the older people or the sicker people are. There’s plenty of room in our dining room and food was OK. You got a menu for every meal and you got to pick your choice off the menu. They could improve on the serving and the meals that they serve at supper time leave a lot to be desired. Some of the staff is OK and some aren’t. Some are very helpful where others aren’t and don’t care to be.

I am very disappointed to learn that a resident at Bella Vista did not have a better experience while residing here. Our top priority at Bella Vista is to deliver the best quality services and care for our residents. I would like to extend an open invitation to further discuss your experience and better learn how we can improve the quality of services or care going forward.

Independent Living Reviews for Bella Vista

We went to Bella Vista twice, and my mom ultimately moved there. She thinks it's beautiful. The apartment was the smallest they have, but there's plenty of room for her. It wasn't furnished, but it has a kitchen, and a washer and dryer. She likes the fact that she has a choice for the main meal, the option of vegetables, and a chef salad. They have an exercise room, outings to grocery stores, thrift stores, and they go once a month to eat out. They have Bingo, Wii bowling, and socials. Everybody has been pretty friendly.

We had a general tour of Bella vista; they had 1 bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments, and they were quite nice. It was a renovated hospital, it looked like a very fancy hotel, and I had a very nice feel for it. It was the least expensive of the facilities I visited. The staff in sales did a lot of follow up and was interested in me and my situation.
