    5 star review  This is Kay, not, as the header indicates Richard...! He of course tells me he wants to come home. He appears to be content and I always get a great smile. So I do miss him but with the great staff and care, Aravilla is doing a super job, just to keep him smiling .

    5 star review  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.

    5 star review  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!

    5 star review  Patty and Jen took excellent care in providing the best possible options for my Father. Aravilla is the best Assisted Living facility in the greater Sarasota area! (I looked at 6 others). It feels like a beautiful hotel with all of the amenities of a home environment and more. Beautiful pool, plenty of social activities. Fabulous tv lounge with bar like area for socializing. Highly recommend Aravilla for your loved one.

    5 star review  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!!

    thumb Sandy Hochman

    5 star review  The staff at Aravilla have been very responsive whenever I have a question or need for my father who has been there since late February. They have followed the mandates and guidelines due to the Covid-19 virus to keep everyone safe. I appreciate all they have done and continue to do.
