Review ofMaplewood at Southport
5.0

[name removed] is a wonderful Director. Her warmth and friendly demeanor set the tome for the attitude the staff has toward the residents and families. I am continually impressed with the how quickly [name removed] responds to emails. I am a Nutritionist and have worked in healthcare. So I am critical about a senior community. I cant say enough good things about about Maplewood. Unfortunately my father became much sicker shortly after driving. Being new at Maplewood I reached out to [name removed] to help me address our needs and she was always on top of making sure we had whatever we needed. My mother is still at Maplewood and even though we had some staff changes through the year, the new staff seems as good or better than the former staff. I thank [name removed] for that too. The residents are happy at Maplewood and well taken care of, you can't ask for more.

My 93 year old father moved in this fall from Boston so he could be closer to family. He was initially resistant, but the Atria Darien made everything so easy from the trial period, supplying the furniture & utilities, and setting him up with a Y membership so he could continue his daily swimming routine. In addition, all the staff was exceedingly friendly and amenable, if he needed something to make his stay more comfortable. The food is also very good. While he is still adjusting, my father definitely sees the positives in living at the Atria Darien and speaks highly of the place.

My husband stayed at Atria Stamford for a month and could not stop talking about how wonderful it was and how nice the staff was, in particular the Community Sales Director who was our initial contact and who made it all happen. The facilities are outstanding - more like a hotel than a retirement home, and the daily activities have something for everybody. My husband is looking forward already to the next time that he can stay there! It gave me great comfort to know that he was taken care of so well while I traveled and visited family.

We chose The Greens because they did paperwork to put a lean on her home until it was sold so they were very accommodating with that whole process. The room sizes at the facility are very nice, perfect for my aunt and her needs. I have noticed that the staff really get to know our loved one and her routine and they have really allowed her to adapt and they motivate her to get out in the community. I would absolutely recommend them to others looking.

Overall the facility seems a little understaffed, and I know so many places are right now. The nurses are very sweet with the people. But I don't think they have enough of them to really go around. We have to kind of bother them to makes sure our loved one regularly showers. The staff themselves I really do like. They are very caring individuals. I don't see as many activities going on as I would like to see, but they do singing and dancing, which is a lot of fun for the residents. I've seen trivia type of questions and polishing their nails. Cleanliness could use some work. The carpets have little stains and are well worn, and we've had to call their attention to some things that need cleaning. We see a lot of dust. And that's hard to see when I have a different family member at another community that's kept really clean.
