Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

Whitehorn Village is the kind of place we would call an oasis of good living. The building itself is a wonderfully clean, well-laid out location with a welcoming lobby, and featuring a beauty salon, an onsite bistro and bar, a games room, fitness studio, movie theatre, general store, and much more. With so much onsite, there are many different ways you can join in with people your own age here to make good times together.

Staff here, from administrators to care aides, say caring for elders is in their blood, and this is very apparent in the way they treat seniors, seen in the subtlest of gestures. There’s a clearly demonstrated attitude of service and the life enrichment programs particularly notable. Seniors who move here find that it’s also very inviting for family members and friends, who feel welcome to visit and enjoy the environment.

With a full continuum of care here, including assisted living and memory care, Whitehorn Village is welcoming to couples who have varying needs, and it’s an ideal place for those with memory loss or other onset of dementia. This community goes out of its way to help people transition out of a home that no longer suits them, into a lifestyle just right for the person you are now. You’ll enjoy everything from gardening, to interesting outings, to a regular happy hour, to occasional live music, to simple, small moments with others—or in the comfort of your suite. Dining here is said to be delicious, prepared by red seal chefs. Whitehorn Village gives you a lot to live for every day.
