Bobbie Rosenbloom2023 has been one of the best years of my life. This is the year that I found happiness and a feeling of well being. All this, I attribute to living at the Conservatory Independent Living Community.This place is unbelievable; the staff is very caring, and all aim to please.The activities are enriching, and enjoyable. It has been said that it is like living at a country club. The amenities are too many to mention.When I first arrived at the Conservatory, I was depressed, and unenergetic. My daughter was very concerned about me. She thought I needed an assisted living facility. When I requested to view the property, my daughterasked for a wheelchair.My daughter, Debra, reluctantly permitted me to sign the lease. Of course, everything about the Conservatory was perfect. Debra’s only concern was my inability to cope in an independent living environment. She insisted that I buy a scooter to get around. She was afraid I wouldn’t be able to get to the dining room. Well, after living here for a period of time, I proved my daughter wrong. Not only was I able to get around without a scooter, I was able to attend all activities, and excursions. I did all this with a walker. My whole attitude changed. I was more cheerful, vivacious, and enthusiastic. I transformed from an introvert to a person who enjoyed socializing with the other residents. All the residents are so nice, more like family than friends.All of this I attribute to the Conservatory, and all that they offer.I have one example that proves what I have said. The other day, I had a neighbor from my previous home dine with me at the Conservatory. I hadn’t seen her for about a year. She took one look at me and couldn’t believe how I had transformed. Her exact words were “You are glowing, more youthful, and seem so very content and happy”.Thank you Conservatory for changing my life!

We have a chef who understands both the use of spices and preparing meals that are visually appealing. Vegetables are crisp, meats are prepared in a variety of ways, and options for carbohydrates are appealing and interesting. He is truly an asset to the Conservatory!

From the moment I walked into the Conservatory at Plano, I knew it was the right place for my mom. Their attention to detail is amazing. The facility is beautiful, immaculate, and feels very safe. The staff bends over backwards to help its residents with any need they might have.I'm not an easy person to please and I am extremely picky about food. This is not your typical bland, cafeteria type food. It is restaurant style, well seasoned, chef prepared, and truly delicious (try the salmon)! For those who use a walker, scooter or wheelchair, the staff is very helpful in helping each resident into their seat in the dining room and then serving them.Executive Director, Michael Collins is polished, professional, warm and kind. He runs a tight ship, and it shows in every aspect of the facility.Be sure to ask for Marjorie Fulmer for a personalized tour. She is the nicest, most thoughtful person you will ever meet, and she is so good at her job. I especially appreciated her invitation to have lunch with her in the dining room. We had so many questions and she was so patient and knowledgeable. She is the reason my mom is now a resident.Overall...BEST PLACE EVER!!!

The individuals who provided us with multiple tours really did a spectacular job. We are moving our mother-in-law here from Tennessee and we were very impressed by everything at the conservatory. We spoke with a number of residents as we toured the facility and all were extremely happy. The rooms are exceptionally good, the price is very very good particularly when you consider that virtually everything is included INCLUDING restaurant quality meals. We had lunch there and it was indeed restaurant quality food, not cafeteria food. The number of activities that they offer is far more than any person could participate in. There is something for everyone. They have a lot of committees to collect input from the residence for offsite excursions, movies, things to carry in the store, art and craft activities, groups to form, etc. The grounds are beautiful and the Bluebonnet walking trail is right there at the facility. One of the other things we particularly liked is that you can get from any apartment to the dining room any of the many activity areas without going outside. So when it is raining hard or freezing cold or extremely hot there is no need to go outside if you don’t want to. They have vans and cars that will also take you anywhere within a 10 mile radius. And they have regular van trips to common stores like Walgreens, CVS, Whole Foods, Kroger, etc. There is an on-site primary care physician, a healthcare option for personalized rehab or physical strength programs. We couldn’t find a single negative thing about The Conservatory.

Having previewed numerous independent living communities in this area the Conservatory of Plano for me was an easy choice. I am not disappointed! This is now “home!” It is elegant, warm, well maintained and the management and staff are amazing. They are warm, caring and always go above and beyond to meet any need or challenge.My small companion dog and I have made so many new friends and we are delighted to have found “The Conservatory of Plano. It’s a gem!!!Come have a look at Happy Hour…we are all smiles…

The journey for my Mom and Step-Dad to reach the front doors of The Conservatory at Plano has been several years in the making due to COVID. But they will finally be making the move in May 2022. Shequila has been a trooper helping us navigate our way to the place we're in today. Her patience and understanding will never be forgotten. I am so glad she was there for us the entire way. Michael was so welcoming to us all, both before signing day and after. Both are such professionals. Just know if you are seeking a place to hang your hat, dance a jig, eat delicious meals, play bridge or just enjoy meeting new friends, The Conservatory at Plano will definitely not disappoint. Thanks again.

My parents moved from Arizona to the Conservatory in Plano in late 2021. Shequila and Michael are warm and accommodating and helped our family pick the right accommodations. Their attention to detail and hard work helped make the transition effortless. The Conservatory is beautifully appointed and provides multiple offerings (movie theater, heated outdoor pool, beauty salon, fitness center, beautiful and spacious dining room, etc.) to make it an all-inclusive facility. The apartments are spacious and well kept. All the staff from maintenance to housekeeping to food service are responsive and friendly. There is a doctor who visits the facility weekly which makes it super easy to ensure that my parents are well looked after. The van and car service gives them the flexibility and freedom to leave the community for various reasons. Overall, we are very pleased that we chose the Conservatory.

Transitioning a parent to an independent living facility can be difficult. Change brought a high degree of apprehension for our Dad who wanted to continue to live in his home of 50 years after our Mom passed away.Shequila, Conservatory at Plano's Senior Lifestyle Coordinator, did a great job assisting our family, first in helping us to see that this was the right place for Dad, and then explaining the move in details so we knew what to expect.After two months of adjusting, our Dad is venturing out and finding things to do outside his very comfortable apartment. The Conservatory at Plano has so many activities for varied interests. He has enjoyed meeting other residents in the halls and in the dining room. The residents are friendly and interested to meet a new face. He enjoys spending time in the courtyard sitting with a cup of coffee while soaking in the sunshine. He works-out on equipment in the exercise room and plays shuffleboard when his daughters visit. In the months ahead we can see him venturing out even more.The transition for our Dad was made easier because everyone in the Conservatory at Plano was so caring. From the Director, Michael, to the receptionists to housekeeping and the waitstaff in the dining room, all have been pleasant and accommodating. Our family is very pleased and thankful to have our Dad closer to us in a safe, inviting environment.

My parents moved to the Conservatory of Plano 1 month ago after 50+ years in a home. The Conservatory offered a beautifully apportioned 2 bedroom option that was a perfect fit for my parents. The community is the perfect size (not too big, not too small) and is centrally located to shopping, restaurants, medical facilities, etc. The community has everything they need: excellent chef prepared meals in a beautiful dining area, multiple gathering spaces, fitness center, beauty salon, movie theater, lovely outdoor spaces, a Dr who visits the facility weekly and a variety of activities to participate in. The staff has been wonderful to work with and are helpful in answering questions and responsive to requests. The staff really takes an interest in the residents and getting to know them and their families. Shequlia made the process smooth and organized from touring, to signing the contract, to move in. Thank you!

My mom lived at The Conservatory in Plano for a year and a half before moving to an assisted living community. She had a spacious 2-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen, even though she rarely need it! She thoroughly enjoyed her time in the community. They did a fantastic job through Covid and the Ice storm of January to keep up resident activities and their spirits, doing door to door “Happy Hour” and the like. Plenty of spacious beautiful hallways to walk and exercise no matter what the weather. She especially enjoyed the excellent dining services. She was able to get foot care, therapies, etc., in her apartment/community, which saved trips out during the height of the pandemic. The community was offering booster Covid vaccine shots in September, ahead of the community she lives now. When the time came to move her due to her care needs the Executive Director, Michael Collins and staff couldn’t have been more helpful in facilitating the move. Also kudos to Jo love, and Janet from the Dining staff for their kindness to mom. Highly recommend the community.

Moved my parents here from Florida. Shaquilla helped me navigate this difficult move for them and me. She is the best. She was patient with me and was always available to answer any questions or concerns. The staff is friendly, helpful and a joy to be around. Maintenance has been quick and swift when needed. Michael the director is caring and is always available to answer questions or concerns. Both parents are working with the PT’s and OT’s - Templa and Kathleen and has really shown progress after a year of Covid. Aaron who is the kindest, patient and most knowledgeable in the area of geriatric fitness is a gem. Both my parents love him and look forward to his classes. After looking at a slew of communities I found The Conservatory at Plano offering the most in terms of services, activities and a beautiful comfortable environment. My parents have been there 4 months and enjoying a new life with wonderful new friends in a well kept beautiful community where the staff and residents are all part of an extended family.

Senior Lifestyle Counselor, Marjorie Fulmer, has been exceptionally professional and knowledgeable in helping me navigate my move from NY to Conservatory At Plano. She went above and beyond to find me the perfect apartment; FaceTime, calls and texts. Marjorie and her staff have made themselves available to answer all questions, offer assistance and make positive suggestions. I know that I have found the right senior living facility for me.

I have had a great experience with Conservatory. They have been easy to work with and even with the difficult times we have had recently due to inclimate weather, upper management has always been very responsive and had the best customer service. I would recommend them without reservation.

My dad moved in about 2 months ago. The staff at the Conservatory were very helpful and friendly. The Director is new but very knowledgeable and kind. My dad loves her. Tobie has a way of making you feel welcome as soon as you come in to tour. Their attention to my dad from start to move in and continued attention is why we chose the Conservatory.

I love the Conservatory! My Mom lives here for the past 7 years. She loves the 5 star dining, the heated pools, the movie theater and the field trips to restaurants etc. They play games and cards. There is always something going on!This is an independent living facility with apartment living. They have one or two bedroom apartments. It is a great benefit to my Mom and will be for your Mom!

what a delightful facility. from the Napoleon Bonaparte portraits and the spiral staircases just passed the lobby to the upscale apartments for the residents. By far the most elegant senior living facility in the DWF metroplex in my humble opinion.

I've been a resident for several years. Although I had to leave , I came back because I knew the people were friendly and the place was comfortable. It also fit my budget. I've been happy here. I've had opportunities to go beyond my limits, and I have learned a lot from the residents I've come to know.

It is hard to put into words what I feel about The Conservatory – Plano.I am in the business of introducing clients to senior living facilities with my company, Home Transitions. But when my mom decided to move out from San Diego to live near me in Plano, TX, I went on a 20 – facility look-see in Collin County. I whittled down the list to the top 6 and had my mom out for a week of her own review and decision. What she did not know was I had put a deposit down on an apartment at The Conservatory. It ended up, it was her decision too!Just moving from a daily view of the Pacific Ocean; country club life with 28 years of friends is transition enough! But add parting with most of your belongings and the impression that you are losing your independence, accepting the fact that you no longer can do for yourself.The Conservatory – Plano is like a summer breeze. It slowly envelops you with its beautiful surroundings but most importantly, the friendly, family support that lightly hugs and understands! You slowly loose the loss of the Pacific. You look forward to amazing meals in their dining room offering daily menus, personal service and maître/dining supervisors Pedro and John (who know your name Day 1); seat you with those they think you might enjoy meeting. It is a GREAT centerpiece to the facility and HUGE cornerstone to feeling you belong.From the start, the long-terms spoke about the friendly staff. It is why they are long-term and still enjoying the life! But two stand outs are Tobie and Kellie. Tobie was our first touch to The Conservatory! As the Admission Director, she helped us lock in a place (twice), supported little coordination issues with the move but… has the most generous and warm heart. She becomes your best friend as if you are the only one in the place! And Kellie is the ever-present Executive Director. She is relatively new herself yet knows everyone’s name, family, concerns and, I understand, has single-handedly made The Conservatory’s offer to the residents dramatically improved – noted by a full house!With a lot of words, I still have not keyed into what The Conservatory has done for my mom (and me) in her transition from the home she loved to a beautiful new lifestyle where she feels she belongs and can flourish.Thank –you.

My Mom loves it! Staff is friendly and helpful. Food is terrific. Negatives: 1. All floors look the same in color & decorations and it can be confusing if you get off the elevator on the wrong floor. 2. Lack of supports for those with poor vision, reading activities calendar or food menu, signage such as floor#, exits, or elevator that says the floor number.
