Customer Reviews

Great Senior Community

I love this community because it instantly felt like home. The location is perfect and the buildings are very well kept. I love that it is an adult community and I enjoy meeting people in the clubhouse.

Horrible Place

Unless the axis of the earth shifted it was a horrible place to leave. We sold our beautiful home in Schererville in Sept 2013 and needed a place to live until our new home was complete in Florida. They did nothing but lie (realized their lies after we moved in). We were in "A" building and rented 2 parking spaces in the garage at $50 each per month. Thank goodness I kept a album of pictures of the filth in the garage (cigarette butts everywhere and trash people would jut drop, just too lazy to pick up and the maintenance people used to just store everything in the open from flammable liquids to wood! [removed] Over the course of the year it just kept getting more filthy from the stains on the walls to the [removed] on the carpet rug on the 1st floor carpet when someone had a bowel problem and there was a path of human waste stain and it took them almost 2 weeks to clean probably. As I had stated earlier I kept photos to document. There were a couple of calls to the health department. Also we had told them when we moved in that we were only staying a year. They never told us they would keep $600 plus of our security deposit because of that. Also we left our apartment spotless (again I took pictures of all the rooms, closets and bathrooms) and they thru more costs in.

Nice community, overall

Overall things have been good here! It's a nice looking place, and the staff have all been very pleasant and friendly. The only real issue we've had is that there were a few things they didn't mention to us before we moved in that they expected us to know to take care of. The maintenance service has also been a bit slow, there have been a few minor fixes I requested the day we moved in that haven't been seen to over a month later. But those are just minor inconveniences, overall it has been a very good place!

Nice looking place!

We toured this location when we were looking into options for our loved one. This was a very nice looking independent living community, it was clean, and everyone seemed very friendly. Unfortunately we didn't think our loved one was ready for independent living quite yet at the time of our search.

Very nice place

We recently moved a loved one into The Residences, and they've been doing a great job so far. It's a nice clean place, and the apartment is a good size. The staff are all very friendly, and they have a good variety of activities going on to keep everyone entertained.
