We moved our father into Heron East and we were surprised at how the staff went over and above to make him feel comfortable and cared for. The move in was easy, the food is great and he has made some new friends.

I have a family member at Heron East and have to say that this one of the best communities in Sarasota. The staff is always friendly and courteous, they not only treat my aunt as though she is family but makes me feel the same, their is tons of tons of outdoor space for her to enjoy, the in-house providers are so fast to respond to her care need and the Culinary Director, [name removed], always makes sure she has a delicious meal. Earlier this year they added an on-site rehabilitation that my Aunt was able to take advantage ... read more

I visited this facility I visited Heron East. The people there were amazing. The woman I met was good. It seems very clean, and it seemed like the rooms for my parents were probably too small though. That's the one reason I probably would not go with them. But the people were amazing, and it seemed like they had a lot of activities and things like that. The staff was great. The thing that I loved about her was, she wasn't a salesperson. I told her I was in the beginning stages of searching, and she even told me of other opti... read more

Heron East is a newer facility. Very clean but it felt like it required a bit of walking to get around. That was the reason we did not choose this facility.

I visited this facility When I first pulled into Heron East, I thought it was very small. Then I realized as I went around the corner, I was looking at the end of it. The end of it faces the road, not the front of it. It was long and had a nice entranceway. It was pouring down rain, and they had a nice roof that came way out for you to get under, so you didn't get wet. They were having a happy hour when I went in. They had a guy in there singing the old 50's songs like Fats Domino, Blueberry Hill, and that kind of music and ... read more

I visited this facility The tour at Heron East was fine. We had set up the appointment but when we got there, nobody knew we were supposed to be there. But they made accommodations and they were able to show us around. Heron East is very nice. For the dining, they had a particular time they had to go and eat. They had activities and stuff, it was nice. But compared to the newer facility we toured, it's apples and oranges. For the same price, if not more, at the other place and I was not as nice of a facility of the brand new... read more

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident My mom has already moved to Heron East. The place was good, they were very nice, it's a nice place and it's very clean. It was a very easy process for them. She has been participating in a lot of the activities, they do card games, they do movie afternoons, and bingo. So I know that she's been doing a lot of activities. Everybody seems very nice so we haven't had any issues at all. She seems very happy there.

I visited this facility Heron East was nice. The place was very nice, very clean and the passages were wide. They had black leather seats with tables, so if you have company, you can sit out there and relax. Those were very nice, I liked that. But I think it's a little bit out of my sister's reach. The staff that I talked to was very keen to go through all things and then to explain everything to us. She was a nice person, and to be honest, I would put my sister there. But I think it's not affordable for us. They have single... read more

The place is very clean, and the food is good. We also like the size of our loved one's room for the money. Activities are pretty good but could maybe use more variety. Beyond that, we've had some issues overall. Billing is very random, and you should consider having in writing what the month to month billing is going to be. We've also been having some care issues. When our loved one needs something, she has to ring the call bell over and over to get a response. They've had a lot of turnover and have therefore had to utilize... read more
