We chose Monticello West because of the close proximity to where I live as well as the lady who walked us through was very knowledgeable. Everything she shared sounded like what we needed, especially the value for the money. What I really like is that the caregivers are assigned to the residents, so they don't have new people coming in to care for them everyday. They just have 4 people they work with throughout the week on a rotated schedule. I would definitely recommend them to others looking. ... Read more

Heartbreaking to leave here

I moved my mother into Monticello West one year ago. Despite all things COVID, it has been an incredible experience for my mother. The social activities keep her engaged - she even dances to the music! We will be moving out of state and I have tried to find her a new home. It is hard to replicate what Monticello offers. They are such a caring community. The new Executive Director, [name removed]is exceptional, keeping them safe and making it feel like home for all.

Where I want to live until I cross the line.

It is a very nice place to live. The only real problem I've had is the nurses don't respond to my call as quick as they could, but they're working on that. They might not have enough help. But I like just about everything else about living here.

Our tour experience

I was able to have an in person tour, and the lady who took me around was the kindest, most sweetest and understanding person I think I have ever met. This was one of our top choices for our loved one, the tour was absolutely incredible. The community gave off such a nice, and comfortable atmosphere. The common areas were nice and the staff were very compassionate.

Couldn’t be Happier

My mom recently moved into Monticello West. My mom has only been there a few weeks, but she seems happier and more settled in than I would have imagined possible. She has made friends. She praises the meals every time I am there. She has repeatedly stated that the people working there are as nice as she has ever met. I could not be happier. Much more importantly, I don’t think my mom could be either.

Great People!

I'll start by saying it is almost impossible to be "5 Stars", only because this is a tough business. And a perfect score is unrealistic. My aunt, dad and mother all live/lived at Monticello West. The property has changed hands (new ownership) a couple of times, but the PEOPLE and culture are what makes this place. Having spent so much time there, I can easily rattle of a dozen people that have been there a long time and know me and my loved ones by name. I have had experience at newer "shinier" places, but none of them have the people and stable culture that Monticello West has. And the facility was updated a couple of years ago. Complaints about food are universal at ALL facilities, so the 3 stars for meals and dining should not be a deterrent. All places brag about their food, but the demographic they serve is hard to please.

John, thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. It has been an absolute honor to have so many members of your family call Monticello West home.

Friendly and Supportive Staff

It is tough making the decision to move a parent into assisted living. I moved my Dad into Monticello West almost one year ago and have felt nothing but support every step of the way. From the move-in process, Covid restrictions, my Dad’s changing needs, the staff has been there for me and my father. Everyone I encounter is happy, friendly, and helpful. Knowing that my Dad is safe and cared for is a huge comfort. Whenever I am in the building I feel good about him being there and that is because of the positive environment created by the staff.

A sweet, homey place for your loved one.

[name removed] at Monticello West was very responsive when I inquired about a place for my brother. She was the first person to call me after a locating service connected us. Covid rules were in place, so she made videos of the room options and sent them to me. A week or so later, things opened up and she invited us to tour and try out the food! Since my brother is only 69 years old, we ended up going to a community that seemed more appropriate for a younger person. Monticello West made a great impression and was a contender

Early this year (2021) my sister entered assisted living at Monticello West. Over the past 20 years she has been in several AL facilities. By far, this is the cleanest and best managed place we have encountered. It is like a real home to her, comfortable, clean and private. But the outstanding asset of Monticello West is the staff and administration. Everyone genuinely cares and has made my sister part of their lovely family. I'm sure she will never wish to leave.

It has been a really good experience so far, their communication with the family is really good.

Wonderful place for Mom

When we had to find a place for my mother we were new to Dallas. We looked at a number of facilities of different sizes and price ranges and were delighted to find this midsized community at a reasonable price. This was Mom's first assisted-living experience but she made friends quickly and enjoyed the many activities. While the COVID-19 restrictions have been difficult for everyone, the staff at Monticello has been very diligent in protecting the residents while finding ways for them to keep in touch with their families. We can certainly recommend Monticello West as an assisted-living solution.

Well-deserved review of Monticello West

With the passing of my grandmother, my grandfather’s life stood still and he was no longer able to remain in their home on his own. Searching for somewhere new for him to live was overwhelming but thankfully I came upon Monticello West. I recall meeting with [name removed], the Director of Community Relations, and how comfortable she made me feel by putting my mind at ease they could provide the care we needed. Since the move to in 2016, I’ve found it to be a great environment for my grandfather. I’ve not heard one complaint from him and I’m overjoyed by the lifestyle he has adapted to so quickly. He continues making friends, attending social events, and says he loves the food! He is clean, as is his clothing and apartment. The Monticello team has always been helpful and easy to talk to about my grandfather’s care. I find the staff tenure reassuring with consistent care givers and have comfort knowing my grandfather is receiving the care he needs and deserves which has earned my trust.

A wonderful home for mom.

After my father died, we as a family, looked all over town to find just the right place for mom. She needed a lot of care giving. Our biggest fear was that we would wind up on the evening news with footage of our mother being abused. You can't unsee those kinds of images. From the minute we walked into Monticello West we could feel the loving atmosphere. They really care about the residents. It's smaller and conveniently located and it feels like a home. The staff is very responsive and it is personal to them. They were very proactive against COVID-19. A very daunting task. MW suffered just like every other senior facility, but they remained strong and vigilant. I have recommended MW to several people and will continue to due so.

Not what we expected

Our loved ones were there at the beginning of COVID, and this community was most affected by COVID and they way they handled it was awful. They would get one of our loved ones medication wrong, the director of nursing did not do a good job and would turn away medical advise and refuse to take our loved ones measurements for the medical devices they needed. The director of the facility lied when it came to handling COVID in multiple occasions. There were a couple of aids who were really good with our loved ones, along with a weekend nurse. There were some really great staff members and not so many great ones. The maintenance guy was amazing, he was so great to our loved ones. The doctor who was recommended to us cared for our loved one they were excellent. The staff initially refused to wear masks, we had our loved one put up a sign about wearing masks and one of the staff members found that offensive. We had a home health nurse that would come in and care for our loved one once a week, but they would let our private aid in during this time.

Response from Monticello West

October 26, 2020

In the early stages of COVID, we did struggle with managing it within the community. We have been in contact with local and state officials and are following CDC recommendations. As these officials as well as our own team, have learned more about the disease and its prevention, we have adapted our practices accordingly. With a lot of hard work enhancing our mitigation procedures, and a change in leadership, we have been able to turn things around dramatically. We are proud to say that we have not had any cases of COVID since June, and we have a strong and dedicated staff of which we are very proud. We are communicating openly and transparently with our residents, their family members, and our staff. We hope to discuss this further with you directly and encourage you to speak to Margi Silberman from Life Care Services who is now Monticello West’s Executive Director. She can be reached at [removed].
