We chose Langdon Place of Dover because we were in the middle of a crisis and they had a ground floor apartment available with a back deck and they were happy with that. The apartment size that they have is really good. The staff members have been fairly good with communication, but I think it has just been a very stressful time and they have done the best that they can. We are very lucky we found this facility and that they are safe and I would recommend them.

I was very happy with Birchwoods. The staff was wonderful to my loved one. They knew her, and they interacted with her. They were very positive, and she enjoyed her interactions with them. They were just wonderful. Communication was very good. I'd call to check in on what was going on, and they kept me informed as to what was happening. The common areas were clean, and I always saw people going though cleaning. They were always in my loved one's apartment cleaning every day. She wasn't thrilled with the food, but she was used to cooking for herself for so long. But all the food I saw looked good. There were limited activities due to Covid, but I saw that they did what they could when they were able to . The activities directors were very pleasant, and they got to know the residents, even if they couldn't offer all the activities they wanted to do. And the little bit my loved one was able to participate in, she enjoyed.

We chose Bay Square because it did not feel institutional, it had a more homey feel to it. They have all private rooms and it is more than adequate for what he needs. They have been so much like a family to us and treated him so well. The head of nursing is such a loving and caring person, he has gone above and beyond to help us through. He is a real gem. I would absolutely recommend to others looking, it is more expensive but you get what you pay for. They are not all about the money.

My father moved into the Schooner Memory Care facility in October 2020. The staff were very friendly and informative. The facility had opened in May 2020 during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown. It was a difficult time due to not being able to visit Dad in person, but the management did everything they could to allow window visits and/or phone visits to help us keep in touch. The programs offered for interactive or exercise activities were fun and gave the residents something to talk about afterwards. My Dad enjoyed the cooking and gained weight after a few months of being there. The Care Manager and the Aides for his neighborhood kept us informed of any health events that happened to him. They truly care about the people that live there. They were responsive to our requests or suggestions for his care to help them learn more about him in order to improve his experience. They maintained a safe and clean environment for all of the residents..

For instance, why have a full kitchen when I would have to pay for the food to cook and also pay for three meals a day available in the dining room? I am finding these explorations both enjoyable and valuable.
