Customer Reviews

Watch out!

The grounds outside are fairly nice but the Building is not very clean... & upper management is terrible.

The memory care side of the facility is just embarrassing... they feed them terrible food.
The patients are clearly not being cared for well.

There is better options if you care for your elderly relative!

Experience

I have a relative thetr and staff is pretty good. Only problem is if you have medications distributed you may get wrong one or they do not order before last pill is distributed. In addition oifvyou are ambulatory and don’t need a lot of assistance, there isn’t much to do. Only bingo every day .0n weekends they give a scenic ride to beaches and parks but they aren’t allowed off bus!
For what they pay per month not worth it

Top contender

It was very pretty here. It was a good contender. We decided against it because the price was a little too high. It was also newly built and there wasn't many residents. I felt this wouldn't allow for much socialization.

Hi, we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to The Hearth at Gardenside! Thank you for your review and for your feedback.

Some improvements needed

Somethings get forgotten over there. There is a huge difference between the staff during the week and on the weekends. The staff on the weekends has less supervision and spends a lot of time on their cell phones. It's nothing dangerous but there could be more attentiveness. The food is okay, there's two options which is fine but the food isn't cooked right there and is cold a lot of the time. One night they had the option of pot roast or pizza. The pot roast dish had vegetables but the pizza was just pizza, nothing else. They could have at least served it with green or something.

It's a wonderful place. She loved, them.

It's a wonderful place. She loved, them. I give them a five. There really isn't anything I think should be done differently or better. We were only there a short time, less than a month, but they did a good job while we were there.

Enjoyment & Rewards for the Later Years

The [email protected] Gardenside is like a resort when you walk through the doors. It is bright, warm & and a welcoming environment. There are people around & activities going on all the time. Mom loves it here & she was hesitant at first. Once she got involved with different activities (w/in the 1st week) she is never in her apartment. And the nice thing is that there are no worries either as we know that she is well cared for. She has enjoyed bingo, wii bowling, the live entertainment & even the weekly happy hour for the residents. She came from a 55+ condo environment where she sat in her unit all day - now you need to make an appointment with her just to chat on the phone.
We looked at other places in the area but none compared to this. Yes there were things that we liked - larger unit size maybe- but after being here for 2 months the 1 bedroom is perfect.
