I first off want to say how thankful I am to have found such a wonderful place for my dad to live out the next chapter of his life. Since my mom passed, I have watched not only his health but his passion for life diminish. I am his only son and currently live out of state. Over the past few months dad has been in and out of the hospital and rehab facilities. This last time he laid out in the yard for a hour before the neighbor seen him and gave me a call. It was at this point i knew that my dad could no longer live alone. I knew it was going to be a hard decision to make since I would be asking my dad, a proud decorated war veteran to leave his home of 20 years that he has made so many memories in with mom. If it hadn't been for Kim Hieatt the Sales Director I know I would not have made it through such a tough time in both mine and dads life. When I first met Kim she greeted dad and I with a huge smile. She invited us back to her office where she took the time to really get to know dad. She asked him all about his time in the military and even thanked him for his service. It was much different from the other tours we had been on. She wasn't focused on the money and didn't start firing out questions about his health. Both of us felt very comfortable opening up to her about what had been going on. Most importantly she made me feel at ease about my dads needs and his safety. Above all of that I could tell that Kim was passionate about her job and dedicated to serving families. She provided us with a tour of the community as well as information on VA benefits my dad could receive to help pay for his care. I had no idea that dad could potentially qualify for Aid and Attendance. My dad has been at Oaklawn for almost a month now and I couldn't be more impressed with the facility and the people who work there!

The Staff and Administration at Symphony at Oaklawn has been amazing helping me during a very difficult transition I’ve had to face with both of my parents. Kim Hieatt was one of the first people I met when touring the facility. She had incredible compassion and patience with me. My parents started living there in December, 2018 and Kim still helps me whenever I have a need or question and she always goes beyond expectations. She has even helped me advocate for my parents when needed. The entire leadership has a team approach and has always been there for my parents and me during a very emotional journey.

From the first moment we met with Sales Director, Kim Hieatt, she took great care to make sure my Mom would begin her time in Memory Care with the utmost love and attention. Kim bent over backwards on MULTIPLE occasions to go the extra mile. My family is grateful for the staff at Symphony and the excellent team in place that loves and looks after my Mom!

We are very thankful for the staff at Symphony. Making this decision for our Mom was not an easy one. They have helped her (and us) feel at home and have given us peace of mind knowing she is being well taken care of. The staff is very caring and go above and beyond in meeting our needs. Thank you so much to Shawn S, Kim H, Erin C, Shauna D, Monika H, Carolyn S, Shawna S and Faye for all that you do! There are many other wonderful people that we are so thankful for. Cannot thank you enough!

I had a friend, a few years ago, who lived there for a couple of years. I thought it's so nice, it's a beautiful community and everyone is so nice. When mom got injured, Symphony at Oaklawn was the first place I thought of. I think the management does a good job. It always seems like the caregivers are very friendly and cheerful people and they're on top of changing her bandages. They have a lot of activities. Some of the residents don’t avail themselves of the activities but they should. They have bingo, different card games, and big holiday programs. They also have a painting class every couple of weeks. They have a great monthly calendar and every day there are little signs all over the community. They did a nice thing for Veteran's Day the other day. The dining staff will bring the food to mom's room if she doesn’t want to eat in the dining room. They are familiar with the residents and know what they like to order. They make it like dining in a nice restaurant. The building is very pretty. It looks more like a hotel, I think that's great. There were a couple of things that needed to be fixed when she moved in and maintenance did that right away. We had the transportation department take mom to the doctor a couple of times. That's worked out. It's pretty expensive, but they're doing everything they said they would do. I've been pretty happy with everything.

The main reason I chose this community was that my husband needs pureed food and Symphony offered that, some of the other places did not. I think that management is very accessible and they explain things very well. I think their activities are great and they have quite a few of them. Whenever any of my friends go over there with me, they always mention how nice and clean it looks. In terms of care, when he presses the button the healthcare staff come and help him with whatever they need to.

I think management has always been very accommodating. My mom really loves the food. When I have been there for special functions, they have been tremendous. It is all really well done. The activities are very well done and it is very professional. Everything is perfect regarding housekeeping. My mom doesn't need a whole lot of extra help but it has been great and she likes the people.

The caregivers seem to be pretty up on taking care of mom and getting her meds to her on time. When I've been around for the different events they have, management seems nice, we've been over there several times for various events and the food has always been good. I've been pleased with the events we've been to. Housekeeping pretty good, and we're satisfied with the maintenance team. I know my mom is safe and comfortable at Symphony at Oaklawn.

I think it is a pretty good value and I have generally been happy with the management staff. I think the activities are really good, my mom and dad like just about all the activities there and I’m glad they have transportation services available. The healthcare staff is very attentive and communicate well. They try to let me know what's going on so I haven't had any issues with the nursing staff at all.

I think the various services have been very nice. The management is very nice and seems to be helpful. The food is fine. I think the variety is adequate and the service is pretty good. The activities I used to do I really liked. I am pleased with the services I get from housekeeping, maintenance and care as well.

The person I have met in management is really great. The quality and variety of food they offer is really good. They are very engaging with the activities that are offered. The care staff takes good care of my mom. When she needs help going to the bathroom, for example, someone comes quickly. I am pleased with the services we receive from houskeeping and maintenance as well.

We had my uncle's father in this community for 3 1/2 years and we were very pleased with his care there. Management is very caring, everyone on the staff seems to know what's going on in your family so that they can relate to it and I just don't think there could be a better place. The dining is very good and the activities offered are good as well.

My mom moved into this communtiy because the place was nice and Kim, the sales and marketing director was very helpful. I loved her. Management has been as helpful as they can be. I have eated with my mom once and the food was great. She likes the food. This community offers a lot of activities and I have noticed that her room is kept clean. The building is very well kept. We needed a screwdriver when moving mom in, and Kim was able to get one for us. The caregivers at this community are great. Everyone I have run into is very nice. I am really pleased with this community and I do not feel like I could have found her a better place to live. She likes it here so I am happy.

It's been almost four years that I have lived here and I think the staff have been good. When management came in to get me to sign something I was able to talk to them about the service I get and they listened and responded. Lauren and another lady at this community did manicures and I went down for that. Housekeeping and the caregivers were good. Wendy, Casey, Dee and Emily are the very best aides here.

My aunt has lived there coming up on four years in May and we've been blessed overall. Cindy, on the management team, she's in there all the time and just really goes out of her way. Really, all the managers go out of their way for the residents. From what activities my aunt has done, I'd say they're good. Housekeeping is good, they do a good job, and the building looks good, it's in good shape. I'd say most of the caregivers are good, I know they help keep my aunt safe and comfortable. I think they do a wonderful job for the most part on a daily basis.

I went to different communities and was pleased with what the staff had told me. We tried the Symphony at Oaklawn and we've been pleased. My husband likes almost everything in the dining room. He does go to Happy Hour and the music and enjoys that. The caretakers and health department has been good. Everything seems to be okay.

We liked the place when we went in, it's very nice, clean and the people were friendly. It was what my mother-in-law needed. The management staff has just bent over backwards and been great. The food looks wonderful every time I have seen it and the housekeeping services have been fine. My mother-in-law is a very hard person to please and she seems to be happy, which is good. We are overall satisfied with the price for the services and accommodations.

Everything seems to go all right. The food is very good and activities are excellent. The housekeeping is excellent. I had a leaky sink and I had a problem with a light in the closet. I told them about it and they fixed the issues in a timely manner. The building is amazing. My daughter-in-law has mentioned that it smells just like I walked into my own home. I am very pleased with it. I do not see how the care could be any better.

Everything has been great. Everyone has gone above and beyond to make it a smooth transition for my mom. Carolyn and Monique are always going above and beyond. When they plan something, it's always very nice. They try to keep the residents engaged. They do a weekly outing, and then once a month they take the residents out to dinner. The nurses and aides are great. The nurses and aides are great. Shaun is the charge nurse, and I see him all of the time. If I ever have questions, I can text him. The management, I love them, they're great. They're doing a fantastic job. I'm in contact with them pretty regularly.

In the Lousiville market it is very well priced. I have looked at all the prices of every place; I think the prices here are very fair. The lady that runs the exercise program seems to be real nice. The place is cleaner than other communities. I have a one bedroom apartment which is more than I need. I have seen every place in Louisville and I think this is a great place. It is a beautiful place. It is extremely attractive, well designed and it is roomy. It is at the top in Louisville. I think what I have seen of the nurses they really do a super job. Anybody that needs a combination of private care and memory care this would be the best place for them.
