Review of Independence Village Of Aurora

My arrival to IV was [date removed]. I found my new home and environs very inviting. Having been a nurse. I understood what my new life would be like. I found my caregivers, compassionate + caring. They work hard for all of us, I honor their friendship. Lately, after some changes in losing a lot of important people, things changed. Aides come + go, we hardly get to know them. Good ones stay, much to our benefit. Better training team work is needed. Food is good; however, thanks to Faram. Changes can be made. I like living here and I love all my friends and contacts.

I cannot compare Independence Village to other Senior Living places because I moved here directly from my home in Minnesota, Ohio. In July, I will have lived here six years.

On this very few occasion I have expressed concerns, they have been addressed promptly by Management or Housekeeping or Maintenance.

Review of Independence Village

Moved here to be near family and compared to the place I came from this place is far more personable.

Loved one is Happy and so are We!

Selecting a new home for a senior loved one in any family is hard on everyone. The caring and sincere team at Independence Village - starting with the thoughtful and honest sales manager to the wonderful "director of resident happiness", made our decision easy to make and moving to the new home simple and uneventful. They have lived up to every commitment they made to us when we were looking for a new home and the helpful staff and management team are always accessible.

Not Impressed

I have been touring multiple Assisted and Independent living facilities in the Aurora area for my family. I felt the sales representative was very unorganized in his sales theory to me on the facility. The caregivers also did not seem engaged with the patients as I toured. I would NOT recommend this facility, especially for the price of the apartments.

The care I received at this community was outstanding to the point I was able to more back home. If I ever need to move to a community again this is definitely where I choose.

Waiters are really nice, not too sure about the follow through of other departments, as I’m relatively new.

Need more helping hands.

We feel so very lucky to find Independence Village for my parents. They enjoyed four wonderful years here in a fun, loving and nurturing place. Everyone on the staff was like family to us. I could never imagine a place more perfect than this was for my mom and dad.

Very happy with the community. Great food, plenty of activities, wonderful staff

My first visit in the building was okay. Staff was friendly and the coffee was good.

Very clean staff & residents [are] nice, Love the cafe and fresh fruit. Enjoy all the activities (I am always busy). Food is very good, no complaints

I love everything about this community, I am treated wonderful.

The food is excellent, enjoy the activities with [removed] and [removed]

Chef [removed] is WONDERFUL, love to listen to him

I like the people. I like the food. I like the environment. Friendly people, everyone tries to be helpful. I keep busy with activities. I have time to contemplate my life and think about what's left. I like who I sit with at dinner

Perhaps I am not the best to evaluate the facility, not having lived in a similar situation. But the fears that I had were allayed on the 1st visit. [removed] raised my expectation & [removed] and his crew have done a wonderful job on meals. the staff is serious, competent group. The waitresses are fresh faced, young, and very welcome. We look forward to dinner

I like my room. The food is good. I like to go to bingo, ceramic class, I like to listen to the musicians

Very nice... I love it! The food is very good and the employees are all nice. When you call for help, they are all happy to assist

The dining room is very nicely appointed and the food looks fabulous

It is very nice here. Everyone is friendly and helpful. There is always something to do

Very good food, nice employees. Clean

I have been a resident for 10 years and am very satisfied with accommodations, service, and food

Enjoy the activities with caregiver. Love to play rummy cards. Loves the happy hour food and music.

Servers are great, they get me whatever I want. I love the food

Thank you to each and every one of you who helped my parents live out the last couple years of their lives the best possible.
I did not need to worry because you could be trusted and that is a big order to fill when we are talking about our beloved parents.
I will miss everyone too. Independence Village has been a part of my life for almost 2 years! Everyone there showed how very proud to be a part of such a first class organization.

Many thanks for the lovely floral arrangement in [removed]'s memory. It graced the alter in the sanctuary during her memorial service. We will always remember [removed]'s care and the comfort and kindness shown to her during her stay

The food is excellent, the room is comfy and clean. The help is very helpful. Activities are very good. They really know what they are doing here. I love [removed]; she always knows how to make me happy. To many old people, I would like to see more younger generation.

I love the food. I really like the people, they are very friendly and helpful. I like the live music & exercise

Most staff are polite, good workers, happy with them. Could use a better selection of food; meat is often too tough for us to chew. Also when we first moved in, there was a nurse available to us 24 hours a day. Now there isn't one, only one available if you live in assisted living. Toke the coffee away from the breakfast room in the afternoon, only in the morning now. Also took away fruit late in the day. Not enough wait staff to serve coffee at dinner. Could use more powerful toilet flusher. (Room) carpet too thick, causes tripping, the hall carpet is better

Maintenance- good
Nurse- good
Food- average
Workout Room- bad

After spending time at 5 rehab and assisted living facilities, Ind. Village is wonderful! The activities, care, personnel are excellent and the food here is exceptional. The residents living in the independent living apartments are friendly and a joy to know. I believe I have found my new home here at Ind. Village

We have lived here for 5 months, and have found this community a very pleasant place to live. The care and housekeeping has been great.

Wonderful community. Friendly, helpful, and watchful (people). Very close community. I would give the community a 5!
Always something for the seniors to keep busy and use their minds. Food is outstanding. Thank you for being here for families.

Very quick service from the maintenance department. The Grand Buffet (once a month) was exceptional and very special, well done! For the residents and their families, the use of private dining rooms are for small groups, patients.

Very clean, love the cleaning lady. People are very friendly, food is good, and the apartments are just the right size

Everyone is very nice and friendly.
Very clean
Take good care of my apartment.
Good food

Living at Independence Village for the past seven years has been a happy positive experience for both my husband & myself. The staff are all caring, considerate & helpful when needed. For anyone wanting a good, pleasant “home away from home” we would sincerely recommend Independence Village of Aurora.

Perfect fit for my mother!!

My mother has really made an easy transition into this community with the help of all the residents and the staff. The residents have made sure to invite her into there social events and really make her feel welcome in her new living environment. The staff have also done a great job at checking on her often to make sure she is comfortable and her needs are being met in her new living environment. The entire building including the lobby and bedrooms are very well maintained and kept clean for the residents. We could not have found a better fit for my mother and we are very pleased with our choice of this facility.

Amazing !!!!

Very good for people my age lots to do. Excellent meals. Wonderful inculding all kind of cooperator the arround community nothing is perfect So I give if 4. 3/4 star

My son and family live in this area. He brought me here. I am very happy here and enjoy it very much. I find plenty to do to keep me busy. I find the staff friendly and very accommodating.

Everybody tries to be helpful. The food is good and varied. It is kept very clean.

Very friendly, Very clean, Good activities, Excellent attention with maintenance

I live in this community and enjoy my stay here. All my activities are planned daily and food is also supplied everyday. apartment has all that is needed including TV, stove, refrigerator. Daily activities are listed in the daily chronicle.

Best live ever seen anywhere.

I have worked at Independence Village for several months and I have found the staff exceptional. The residents feel like family & the staff definitely takes the time to get to know them & their families. The residents express gratitude for the care they receive.

I love working here. I am lucky to work so closely with some great nice real people. I am also happy to be working with the senior citizen community. I am able to give something back to my people. The seniors are some times neglected and forgotten I want to change that.

Lovely, friendly people. Beautiful and very clean. Very well run and listen to every request from residents. First and only place I would choose.

The buzz around the Aurora community is that Independence Village is the premier place for seniors to call home. The staff is very focused on the overall happiness of their residents and the value they are providing them. They've set the bar very high and continue to deliver world-class care.

Nice Apartments but They Do Not Keep Promises

They were suppose to give my father an orientation but it was 3 days later and still no orientation. They did not give him a handbook as promised. They were suppose to come hook his VCR up but did not come. My Father's apartment is nice, clean and spacious. He really likes it. He doesn't do the activities so I can't rate that. My Father and I were both impressed here when we first saw it, but now 2 months later not as much. He's not very comfortable here but it may be because of the transition.

Loved it!
My sister & I would love to move there.

Very nice place

Unfortunately my loved one was only here a short time before she developed some issues that would beyond what they can handle, but during her stay here I thought they did an excellent job! They were incredibly accommodating, and really bent over backwards for us while we were there. I really liked that the staff knew the names of all the residents, it really added a personal touch and made it feel much more homey.

I looks like it will be a great facility, but they are not quite there yet.

I looks like it will be a great facility, but they are not quite there yet. There was a lot of water damage when we went, and seems to be a work in progress. They had an apartment with a bedroom with a study. Thinking back those turns would be a little difficult to maneuver in a wheelchair.

The patients and the staff, everyone does seem happy and content.

It would be nice to have some more stimulating activities. The food would be a five, he really likes the food. In terms of cost, they aren't totally up front when you walk in, you don't know that they are going to kind of nickle and dime you. Things are based on the level of care. You are sort of at their mercy when they bill you about a particular level of service, and how much time they spend with a person. Stephanie is a very valuable resource, we had an unexpected and unexplained charge on our first bill. She immediately got on the ball and had it taken care of. The people seemed generally happy here. The patients and the staff, everyone does seem happy and content. I liked that it was roomy.

This is a very nice, clean facility. The food is good. The care response could improve. My mother also wears a Lifeline necklace because she doesn't feel they will respond quickly in the event of an emergency.

Mariah was wonderful at making my mom feel welcome and comfortable, she shared a lot of information and was patient with us. The amenities appear to meet our needs. This may be my moms favorite I would like to come back and have a conversation on total costs to make sure there are no surprises. This place is on the top what we've seen.

Love it.
