I viewed this location, it was very nice, my mother being from the country, I felt it had great amenities, but it did not not enough green space to make the transition smoothly for my situation.
Have a happy retirement
The introduction to Westhaven by [Removed] was right in with the residents at meal time. All features of the residence were shown and explained. All staff are well trained and i have observed friendliness, compassion and experienced assistance given to residents. The rooms are clean, well serviced weekly for bedding changes, vacuumed and dusted, and kitchens are made spotless. Every effort is made to help choose the right room, and changes are made if necessary as vacancies occur. The three meals a day are exceptional, well presented healthy, with variety and many optional choices. The menu is rotated over a long period of time. Activities are in abundance, Bus trips are made daily to one of the categories mentioned for the day. Shopping, Dr.appointments, grocery, malls, churches and sight seeing. I have visited two other retirement communities and nothing can prepare.
Not very impressive!!
The facilities looked very nice, but there wasn't much going on for activities. The seating for meals proved to be not very welcoming for new people . Residents never knew where to sit as other people had their favorite groups already in place. The parking for residents was not as promised. Upon leaving for a new residence, the deposit has not been forthcoming after 3 month. Overall, not very impressive.
