    My mother in-law have lived here for a few years now.  It's quite frustrating to go see her because there is no parking.  After some investigating it turns out that the facility doesn't enforce its own parking rules and allows residents to park in the visitor parking when they have assigned parking.  I have not been by to see her in months because last time I had to park clearer out on Arlington Ave and then walk to the back of the complex to see her.   This place is not visitor friendly.  For a retirement facility, one might think visitors should be welcomed. This is not that place.

    My mother has been a resident at raincross senior village for several years. This new team (Darleen, Tiffany, and Eric) are amazing! Recently, my mother was having hallucinations and forgot where she was. The crew noticed something was wrong and immediately took action and reminded her where she was and how to get to her apartment. This is not assistant living and they were not required to do this. They also contacted me and provided me with information to get her some additional help. The crew is always nice and polite, the complex always looks clean and organized, and each month the staff hosts events for the residents. I am happy to know my mom is at a place where the staff cares!

    After being a resident here for several years, I'm extremely disappointed. Will take my concerns/issues to the Individual/organizations that can provide remedies...It used to be a great place to call home!.

    I recently moved in to Raincross and am beyond thrilled with my beautiful apartment. My top priority was a community that was quiet. It is completely quiet, no loud music or voices, I can come home and actually relax! The buildings and grounds are beautiful. Tiffany in the leasing office has been amazing. I’ve asked her dozens of questions and she has answered them all promptly, patiently, and with stellar professionalism. So far, other tenants I’ve chatted with have been very friendly and welcoming. If you are looking for a quiet, friendly community, look no further. I cannot believe my luck finding exactly what I wanted.

    Unacceptable! A tenant locked themselves out of their apartment. She called the emergency # and The maintenance man said he would not let her in and it says that in their lease and they would have to had until 7:00 a.m. to be let in. She was on oxygen & couldn't get into her apt for her oxygen but that did not matter he was not gonna let her in even though he lives on the property site and that's his job. When I lived here that would have never happened I lived there in 2014 through 18 and the management was great. But now they have new managers and they don't even give any of the common courtesies people normally give each other to their tenants. The lady had to call a locksmith. On acceptable for a senior community

    I called the after hours emergency maintenance phone line at 6:00am and left 2 messages for someone to please call me back ASAP.My call was finally returned 7 hours later at 1:00pm, needless to say whoever manages the after hours maintenance line does not promptly return calls.
