What Customers Like

Reviewers love that the facility is clean, well-kept and staffed with compassionate, nice, helpful people. Lely Palms also promotes an active lifestyle. According to one reviewer, “Lely is the best kept secret in Naples.”

What Customers Don’t Like 

The facility is large and expansive, and while that comes with many benefits, some reviewers felt it was too large to be practical for their loved one. One resident’s daughter writes, “The apartment was far away. For her to be motivated just to go to the dining room was a long walk. It was like living in an apartment complex and walking 1/8 mile to the dining room.”

Homewood Residence at Naples

Naples, FL 34102

Brookdale facilities like this have some attractive signature programs. Brookdale is unique in that it truly caters to the whole person regardless of his needs. If your biggest medical problem relates to poor breathing, for instance, Brookdale would never shy away from caring for your mental health needs. The medical approach is to view you as a complete, special person. When you contact Assisted Living Today, be sure to ask about Brookdale’s signature services directly, including: Optimum Life, Brookdale Celebrates, and Brain Fit. You are likely to be impressed.  

What Customers Like

Many reviewers mention how great the food is for residents, and many also report receiving a complimentary meal during the tour. There are plenty of activities to enjoy and other amenities designed to make senior years as happy and healthy as possible. 

What Customers Don’t Like 

Some reviewers say that they wish the staff had a greater capacity to be more attentive to the residents, especially when it comes to personal activities of daily living and medication management. 

Orchid Terrace Moorings Park

Naples, FL 34105

Moorings Park has a tagline that reads “simply the best.” It’s quite possible they are high on lists of bests (not including this one). With all the amenities of most quality assisted living facilities, Moorings Park does great in treating memory care issues. Everyone becomes forgetful (for the most part), and your needs are cared for whatever you remember or whatever you don’t. Not only is good memory care important for the forgetful, obviously, a strong health care team that can help with effects of dementia and Alzheimer’s is important. Moorings Part does not fall short to that challenge. They meet it and even beat it in whichever ways possible.

The Carlisle at Naples is such a beautiful facility. For those who need luxury alongside health care, you are in serious luck right here. This facility needs to be seen to be believed.

What Customers Like

Reviewers almost unanimously agree that the facility itself and the grounds are absolutely stunning – which provides a nice atmosphere for residents to enjoy sunny days. Stuart writes “It looks like a cruise ship or a nicer hotel.”

What Customers Don’t Like

This facility is also pricier than other assisted living facilities in the area, but that’s likely because of the nice amenities offered.

Merrill Gardens Naples

Naples, FL 34109

Merrill Gardens has a fun tagline and that is “enjoy more.” As a family-owned facility that provides high-quality health care, alongside a great ability to meet your personal needs, again, here is a facility worth thinking seriously about.

Here you can find the amenities you desire, the cleanliness you expect, and a strong clinical staff to meet your unique health care needs.

With a library and an anytime café, for instance, as a couple of the amenities, go right ahead and get that hot tea and biscuit, grab a classic by Twain, and enjoy a peaceful nighttime read before you rest your head for the evening.

Sterling House of Lehigh Acres

Lehigh Acres, FL 33936

As a Brookdale facility, you will have access to the unmatched signature programs they offer as described in the “Homewood Residence” above. How you can contrast this facility with that is location (among other things that can be discussed with our representatives).

Emeritus at Fort Myers

Ft. Myers, FL 33907

Perhaps you are a Red Sox fan? If so, remember the club’s spring training program is right here in the city of Ft. Myers. With all the high-quality amenities, great health care provision, and orderliness of any Emeritus facility, your decision here may come down to location.
