Customer Reviews

Beautiful Community

My parents are settling in nicely at Gardens of Gainesville. They really like it there. It is a beautiful and clean community. The staff is very friendly and caring. It is very easy to communicate with the staff members either by phone or text. Also, my parents have phone service in their room so it is easy to contact them. I have dined there several times with my parents and the food is really good. They offer choices and variety in their meals. They encourage the residents to participate but respect the residences preferences if they don't wish to engage. The atmosphere is like southern living home. Very warm and cozy. They have areas for residents to gather and socialize, such as a courtyard, a library, a living room, and a craft area. They have a lot to choose from. I would absolutely recommend this community to others.

Mom and Dad new home

The care at this community for my parents. The staff is very caring and attentive to their needs. The staff has made my parents feel like they are at home with family. The community is clean and my parents are adjusting very well. They are offered to participate with the other residents. We would recommend this community for the care of a loved one.

Care and options

We liked the tour from the nice staff. This is a clean community with a nice environment for care. The meals seemed to be appealing. They did not have a dr at night in case I needed a physician. We liked that they had a lot to offer. We would have liked this community. Families should tour this community for the care and value that is offered.

We really liked this place. It was very nice and there were a couple of options that interested us. One of the best we've seen so far.

Very Nice Community, My Wife is Well

This is a very nice community, and I'am pleased with my wife's move here. She is doing very well, and being cared for well. They have a great staff, and they are always willing to help. The community is well maintained. I know they do a good job with the cleanliness, everything is very neat and tidy. There are activities for the residents. I would say the meals could use some improvement. It has been a good experience. I can sleep good at night knowing she is safe and in a good place. This is a community I would recommend.

This community just felt like home. The rooms were spacious and each resident had a space outside their room to show their individuality, whether it be their favorite sports mascot, sculptures from their missions in Africa or a child's statue playing hide and seek. They also have two dogs that share both the assisted and memory care units and the residents love them dearly. I could say more, but you really have to experience this one!

Helpful Caring Community

This community has really bent over backwards for us. They have been very helpful and accommodating through out this whole process. My mother is doing great, she is still adjusting, but overall everything is well. They are caring for her very well, and I'am pleased. They have really provided me with a peace of mind knowing she is safe and in good hands. This is a community I would recommend.

My Mother Is Doing Amazing

This is truly an amazing community. I'am very impressed with everything they have done for us. My mother has improved so much since her move here. She loves it here and has adjusted well to it. She is being cared for very well. I know she is safe and in very good hands. I have already recommended this community and will continue to doing so. Everything has worked out very well.

Very satisfied!

My mother in law is doing great at Dogwood Forest of Gainesville. The staff were helpful with the move and have made it a smooth transition for my mother in law. Everything has been wonderful at Dogwood Forest!

Loved one lived there

The outside of the community was kept very clean. The food was enjoyable. My mother's room was not kept clean and it was a common complaint among residents. The staff did not communicate well and were very difficult to work with.

One of Our Top Choices

I really liked and preferred this community. I liked what I saw. The people living here have been here for a long time. The community has had their memory care for a long time. I also liked that is has been in the business for a long time. The staff has a longevity here too. They had no opening and we had to go on the waiting list.

What a beautiful place. The employees and residents were engaging and smiling. However, it was a bit too opulent for Irene. I don't believe that she would not fit in.

Dogwood Forest has my recommendation!!!

Dogwood Forest is a wonderful place for my Mother in law. The staff are lovely and there is good communication with them. They offer a variety of activities and she does participate in some of them. The community is very clean and taken care of.

Highly recommend

Mom loves Dogwood Forest! She loves the activities and food and the caregivers. Rooms are cleaned and her laundry is done weekly. They go on outings too! I would definitely recommend Dogwood Forest to anyone who is looking for assisted living for their loved one.

Peace of mind

My father-in-law moved into Dogwood Forest almost two weeks ago and we are so very impressed with the care, attention to detail, and professionalism that the entire staff has shown him and all of us. We know that he is being taken care of, and we have such peace of mind.

Experienced and welcoming staff. A lot to offer my mom in terms of her self-care. Great food. We chose this facility.

Everyone is great and go out of their way to make the patience feel welcome and at home.

Seemed nice

We toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. I thought Dogwood Forest seemed like a very nice place, overall. The facility was clean and well kept, and the staff were friendly. The residents all seemed friendly and active, as well.

Top Notch Staff and facility

I have found Dogwood of Gainesville Top Notch. Everyone on Staff is focused on the People and grounded in the proper way to work with all lining there. We have been at the Dogwood only a month and I believe that my inlaws are learning to fit in. This is not an easy transition and will take sometime and we will be there to help them. the staff at Dogwood has helped and encouraged us to go to Caregiver Meetings.. these are very help full .

Can"t Say Enough Good Things!

My mom is adjusting very well and the people that work with my parents go out of there way to make sure to reach out to me. The food is excellent and the menu is fantastic. They have a food committee that also lives that makes the decision. Highly recommend!

Thank you so much for your feedback! We are very happy to hear you are pleased with your experience.

Of all of the communities that we looked at they were the nicest ones we saw.

The only thing I could really say is that the food was really good at first but, it didn't stay consistently good. It kind of has gone downhill. We chose them because they were newer and more updated, and the furniture was very nice. They made a good impression on us. Of all of the communities that we looked at they were the nicest ones we saw.

Very Pleased

We are very pleased with everything that is there. They are very helpful and friendly and I think they do a great job taking care of my mother.

From the Community

Dogwood Forest of Gainesville is situated at the base of the North Georgia Mountains on the outskirts of downtown Gainesville and a short distance from Lake Lanier. Entering the community through the covered portico is reminiscent of walking into a gracious southern home. Inside, the foyer is open with tall ceilings, a beautiful traditional style living room and the library with a fireplace straight ahead. Listen quietly and you will catch soothing music that gently fills the air.

Beyond the entrance area lays a classically decorated community that boasts a beautiful dining room with fireplace, living room with grand piano, activity room with a model train set, bistro for serving snacks, four colorful gardens and more.

Interiors are exquisitely decorated with understated elegance and feature high end, classic architectural style.

Every last detail has been attended to including fresh cut flowers, outside bird feeders, and a community dog that will sit out front with residents and look at the mountains or watch the traffic drive by!
