This Senior Living Facility has potential to be great but it has construction challenges & issues. When the residents think we’ve dipped as low as it can go another challenge/issue rears it’s ugly head and takes it down another notch.9/15/21 What’s that awful smell in the Independent Living Dining Room behind the bar. Several residents are complaining about it.I still have 4 move-in punch list items that have not been addressed in over a year: Bathroom Vent (2nd, 3rd & 4th Floors; Sliding glass doors paint, caulk, sheet rock mud on them; Bedroom door closes on its own (not installed correctly) ; key for storage room.9/15/21 what happened to the Founders Club and things that were sold to us?9/18/21 This tops them all - I received, as well did other residents, a Marketing mail piece offering FREE RENT for the months of October & November if you signed a lease by September 30, 2021. Phoenix Senior Living what’s your plan to compensate the Residents??? We can’t hear you!!9/19/21 Dining Extraordinaire? In styrofoam containers? Dining rooms have been closed, room service only . No cooks or wait staff.9/23/21 - It’s time the Residents of The Bluffs praise our ED, David Wilbanks. He does everything he can to accommodate the Residents and communicate with his staff.Having a BS Degree in Hotel Administration and an MBA in Business, Finance & Economics coupled with 50 years experience in the hospitality industry and my year observing Phoenix Senior Living management I have to say I’ve never experienced the Micro Management you have of your staff. Let them do their job you hired them to do. You have some very experienced management at The Bluffs. Step back and look at how you operate & communicate.You don’t get the fact that many of the Residents in IL & AL are highly educated and have developed excellent business skills over their career path. The Residents want to be kept informed and being left out of the loop breeds animosity.9/25/21 Phoenix Senior Living you got off dead center and made a significant change in what the Residents were sold “quality food & beverage”! Thank you for sending us Chef Parker to clean up the mess created by previous Dietary Management.9/27/21 Communication between management & residents is beyond non-existent. Had more challenges with Dietary today and they didn’t advise the residents they would be delivering room service with 2 choices: 1 Chefs Salad or 2 Chicken Nuggets. No cheese on the Chefs Salad and the chicken was cold. The kitchen was dark. Concierge was delivering food and had not been given any information on the meals.You move one step forward and take 10 back9/28/21 Dining Extraordinaire? Not good today10/21/21 WOW after 8 months of no heated indoor pool it finally got fixed. Maybe we are on the mend.10/22/21 you have to picture last nights room service meal. It was called a BLT.It was 2 pieces of white bread, 2 slices of bacon, 1 tomato slice, 1 lettuce leaf, 3 French Fries no condiments, no dessert. Now that’s what we call “Dining Extraordinaire - Fine Dining”!10/26/21 No bacon for two days. Food Service Staff told the Residents there was a “Bacon Shortage”. Fact Check - there is no bacon shortage11/8/21 This evenings “mandatory”Room Service was a cold cheese burger & cold French Fries. If the IL & AL Residents are complaining we can only imagine what the MC Residents are saying?11/10/21 Room Service Dinner “canned” Ravolis - Chef Boy-ar-de style12/1/21 Today I gave my 30-day notice to move out of The Bluffs. Just don’t see it improving. I will still be your Huckleberry.12/2/21 I get the biggest kick out of this when I first started my posts12/3/21 under the cover of darkness Management taped an notice of a 10% increase in the monthly rent. Didn’t bother to read any contracts.12/13/21 I am writing a book about my Trials & Tribulations with the Bluffs, PSL & Kirko.12/28/21 I moved out of the Bluffs yesterday. Keep in mind the Smoke Signals & TomToms will keep me abreast of what’s going on.
This is a truly beautiful community inside and out. My tour of the community was a fantastic experience. I was greeted instantly after walking in, and the staff was friendly and caring. Everyone I encountered said hello or stopped to greet me. It seemed like the they truly cared for the residents and took pride in their work. The community felt more like a resort than senior living. It was clean, nicely decorated and had lots of natural light.
After a long battle with Covid, our mom was in need of a handicap-accessible apartment. We looked at several communities in our area, and decided upon Bluffs at Greystone. This is a beautiful new senior living community that is packed with amenities. Most importantly, the employees have gone above and beyond to ensure Mom's new home is perfect for her. They deserve 5++ stars!
This community is absolutely one of a kind. When I walked in, the feeling that I experienced was second to none. The staff was so friendly - from the directors to front line staff. When my grandparents are ready to make the move, The Bluffs at Greystone will be my first and only call. Thank y'all so much for the warm welcome.
