My elderly mother has been a resident at Aravilla since November, 2019. I can't say enough wonderful things about it. It is a beautiful, inviting and comfortable environment. The moment you walk in you can feel the difference with other places - in terms of community, cheerfulness and activity. The administrators, nursing staff, activities director, maintenance staff and food staff, are all caring and professional. They love the residents and are always available to talk to family members. This is especially important to me as I live far away in NYC. The most recent notable example of their level of care has been their superlative response to the Covid pandemic. I go to sleep every night confident that my mother is in good hands. As you can see, I highly recommend Aravilla!!
My Dad and I love Aravilla! We had visited often before this pandemic, and were pleased with how they strive for a happy, active, fun lifestyle for all the residents, and it is such a beautiful, new facility. The staff is wonderful and work very hard to handle the daily challenges, especially during COVID 19. My Dad really enjoyed the daily live music, and it will be amazing to resume that, post pandemic. Patty McDonald was so helpful and supportive during his move-in process during these challenging times. Executive Director Carol Copenhaver has been very helpful and supportive during some of his health issues too. We love Aravilla!
For memory unit needs more parking and upgrading inside.
We looked for an assisted living facility for several months when a family friend referred us to someone familiar with senior living. She provided us a list, and at the top was Aravilla of Sarasota. By far, this was the most active of the communities we had visited. It is different from other places we had seen. The people that lived there were friendly, enthusiastic, and even engaged us in conversation. Even patients in the Memory Care unit were active and also spoke highly about this place. This was something that we had not seen. Thus far, everything is going flawlessly with the move-in. If you are looking for assisted living or memory care in the Sarasota area, I would highly recommend checking this place out.
Beautiful place, wonderful caring people. Always some fun and exciting event going on.
Wonderful staff and facilities
There is nothing negative to say about Aravilla. The staff is caring, smart , organized and compassionate. The communication with the families about daily life and the response to Covid 19 is consistent and detailed. Their handling of the threat of Covid 19 with their residents has been remarkable. My mother is happy and safe at Aravilla. They do everything possible to help her navigate any situation that occurs in her life, whether its medical or the social connection to her family that lives up North. Whenever I call Aravilla with an issue, they respond quickly and I feel go above and beyond to resolve it. The surroundings at Aravilla are clean and pretty ! I will always be grateful to the staff at Aravilla for creating a loving, upbeat and safe community for my Mom.
Great community!!! Super clean
