Customer Reviews

The room sizes were good! More like a true apartment. Residents seemed to be enjoying themselves. When talking with residents the only complaint was the food.

People were friendly. But it was very run down in appearance. They have all that property and its overgrown. Carpeting looks like the original. It was a lovely building when it was new. I was there for an event. Very disappointing.

Very beautiful and clean facility

I took a tour at this facility and I liked it a lot. It’s a new facility so everything is updated. The staff was very nice and helpful. I wasn’t able to try the food but I saw that they had a lot of options available to choose from. The building looked sterile almost with how clean it was; everything looked beautiful. They had a few activities and even gave us a schedule with everything they provided. Ultimately, we decided against moving my Mom in due to the pricing.

No complaints

The staff have been accommodating. The food is good they offer healthy choices and have good sized portions. The community is clean and the grounds are nice. There is a nature preserve across the way. The community allows pets and they have some apartments with a walk out for your dog. I would recommend this community.

Fox Point the best choice for us

We had a very good experience with the Marketing and Welcome staff. The move in went very well because of the helpfulness of the staff.
Unfortunately, Mom's health was not good and she was only able to stay at Fox Point for a week.
The business manager was very accommodating and provided us with some financial relief because of our short stay.
I would recommend Fox Point to others in the family.
I only wish Mom could have enjoyed all that they have to offer.

Comfort and Kindness

This is a great community for care. The staff is wonderful and caring. I like knowing that she is in a clean community with a nice environment. The menu is very good with a lot of variety. They have great activities that she enjoys with the other residents. We would recommend this community for the care of a loved one.

Nice Tour of This Community

i had a very nice tour of this community. Everything went well, and everyone was kind. From what I saw the community looked good. Everything was nice, and clean. The staff I met was friendly, and my questions were answered. The experience was a good one overall. This was not the facility for my mother, but my tour went well.

We liked it until she moved in

Mom has been having a hard time adjusting to living at this community. The residents do not seem friendly and the staff are not engaging. They do offer some activities that she has started to participate in. We are hoping things may improve after she has been here a little longer. The community is clean and the food is great. They have a nice sitting area outside overlooking a garden.

Fox Point: A great place to live.

My brother and I were very impressed with Fox Point the first time we went there to check it out for our sister who has Alzheimers Disease. We moved her in on July 1st. 2017. She is doing well there so far and we are pleased with our decision to move her to Fox Point. I would recommend Fox Point to anyone who is looking for a nice place for their loved one.

Depressing environment!!

I was not impressed with this place what so ever and would not want my mother living in this type of environment. During my tour I had just noticed that it was a really depressing atmosphere and the residents in the memory care unit where just kind of left not doing anything. These people need to be treated like people not items.

Tour for care

We toured this community for care. We did like the staff who did answer the questions that we had on the care that is offered. the community seems clean and the variety of the menu was appealing. The room was not what we were wanting and she did not want to have a small size room. We would suggest that other families tour this community for the care of a loved one.

Such a positive experience!

We found Fox point through A Place for Mom. They were a tremendous help and offered so many resources and support to my brother and I. I truly appreciated all of their help! We are so happy with Fox Point. The atmosphere here is so friendly and it truly feels like a community. People are always going downstairs to gather at the fireplace and socialize. It was everything we were looking for as far as proximity to family, cleaning services, and overall atmosphere.

Providing My Mother with Good Care

My mother is hanging in there, but overall they are taking good care of her, and her needs. This is a very nice community, and I'am satisfied with all they have done for us. They have a great staff at this community, and they are caring for my mother very well. I know she is receiving great care. The community is well maintained, they do a good job with the cleanliness of the community. I have no complaints about this community, and I would recommend it.

Lovely Facility!!

I have no complaints about this community and the tour I had taken for my loved one, in fact this was one of our top choices. They had a great memory care unit which was what we where looking for. The staff had great interaction with the residents and seemed to be very attentive to all of there needs, The price range was just a little out of our budget.

A Learning Transition

My mom is doing good. We have been there since November and still finding our way. The staff are helping us to understand the community. I have been learning things about the amenities and activities. We picked this community based on the proximity to family members.

Not right for us!!

This community is in the middle of nowhere. When you look out the windows all you can see are fields and trees. It has as much or more to offer than the community we chose. The person we met during our tour was nice and helpful. This community was a little larger than what we were looking for.

Everything Has Worked Out Very Well

My aunt is doing very well here at this community, it was a hard transition. We are overall pleased with the care they are providing her with. The staff is great, they have been very kind and responsive. She is getting involved in the community and trying some of the activities they offer. She has gone on some great outings. The food is good, they do serve well balanced meals. They do a very good job with the cleanliness. This community is a perfect fit for our family. I would highly recommend it.

2 Week Stay

My mom stayed here for a short time, she wanted to be home. The staff did their best to get her comfortable and accommodated her needs as much as possible. There were a little bit of activities that she tried out. The care and safeness was provided during the time.

Nice staff and facility, poor understanding of ALZ.

Our father, in mid-stage Alzheimer, was at this memory care facility for two weeks. The staff was friendly and seemed to care for the residents. Unfortunately dad had repeated issues with the staff related to his conduct (his behavior, according to several sources including the Illinois Ombudsman, was/is VERY typical behavior for ALZ patients).

We received the call to remove him from the facility on a Tuesday afternoon and was told he could not return. Needless to say that led to a scramble to figure out care for him while we searched for other facilities. That seemed unconscionable to me. After touring several other facilities and speaking with several in the industry they all agreed that his behaviors are typical and Fox Pointe's handling was not how quality care facilities that have proper policies/programs in place operate.

If you are considering this facility do so with an understanding that they are not designed to handle typical ALZ behaviors.

Great Experience

The sales manager was great. She was very patient and gave us all the information and time we needed. The intake nurse was wonderful as well and she makes an extra effort to make sure everything is going well with the residents.

A Fantastic Experience

Everybody I have talked to there was very, very friendly. I do not know where they could improve, they do a good job in all areas. From the first time I walked in the door, they make you feel very welcomed and my loved one is happier than we all thought she would be. It has been a fantastic experience.

Very homey. If it wasn't out of budget, would be number one pick.

doing a fine job

At Fox Point they seem to be doing a fine job. It is very expensive but they are taking good care of mom. The staff are very cooperative. It seemed to me that the lady that was in charge there got a new job so now there are new people. It makes me wonder how much that goes on. So I do wonder about the turnover rate. Sometime there are some staff that are unavailable and tending to other residents and there is only one staff left to attend to the crowd of residents. That isn't a big concern and is only for about 10 minutes length of time. Everybody seems very caring and loving and patient. They are even really patient with her husband that comes to visit. My hats off to them.

Mother Is Happy There

As far as improvements, I do not think that they need any. All I can really say about the facility is that my loved one is very happy there at Fox Point, so that makes all of the family members happy as well.

My mom has been at Fox point a little over a month now.

She is very positive about the whole experience. Her exact comment - "How could you not like it, they do everything for you."

From my perspective, she is still making the adjustment from living in her own home, but continues to have independence and autonomy while living in a positive caring environment. This is a plus for her and her children.

I think she's very happy there.

I think she's very happy there. Communication is good, no complaints about food so far. We haven't really had any concerns or complaints, at this point. I think she would like a little more activities, but I think that's just her.

It was a very nice community.

It was a very nice community. The kitchens in the rooms were much larger than at other places. Everyone was so friendly.

Fox Point

We are very happy that my mother has decided to live at Fox Point. She is safe now and has been able to enjoy a lot of social interaction with other residents. Her medical needs have been addressed. All of the staff members have been very friendly and helpful.

We were looking forward to going to Fox Point before my mom became ill, but never made it. We were very disappointed because they went back on their word in telling us we would be receiving a portion of our money because my mom was not utilizing their services, but when she didn't move in after being released from the hospital and rehab, they went back on their word.

Number 1 Choice - Kelly is great and enthusastic. She talked to Mom and really listened to her. Focus on integration to population, showing common areas, laundry, fitness center with big windows (treadmills included) and salon. Smelled Good! Liked the layout of the apartments, brightness, lots of windows, protected patio for sitting outside, ability to walk. Like the safety and security - have to check in and out, if not at breakfast someone is knocking at the door. Very impressed with evening activities which are important to keep Mom busy and motivated. Had lunch at the facility and nice to have dietary needs met. Lots of activity, ability to take residents to church is a big plus. Like the indoor parking garage and ease of driving in and out of the facility and being able to take back roads in to town. Need to update the information sheet - no walking trails.
