Review ofAtria Marina Place
5.0

We identified Atria for my mother in Spring of 2021 and were able to get her moved in within a week of her touring. The Atria staff was attentive, patient, and unconditionally accommodating during her tour. Since moving in, the staff has maintained this level of excellence even during the pandemic. They’ve been able to stay creative with planned activities for the residents while keeping everyone safe, and consistently deliver excellent programming. The facility is incredibly well maintained, and the residents and staff all make it evident how happy they are to be living or working there. This was a great find for my mom and I look forward to visits with her at Atria for years to come.

Review ofMaplewood at Weston
5.0

This week my wife and I visited our long time next door neighbor, who recently moved into the Maplewood facility. Frankly, we miss her and wanted to see with our own eyes, the place she speaks so highly of! Well, we’ll still miss seeing her everyday, but we will no longer be concerned about her new home (assisted living) and the professionals that help her. Wow! Everything really exceeded what we had expected. While we were only there for a couple of hours we had a great feeling when we left, knowing that she really was in good hands!! Thanks Maplewood!

My mom lived at Atria Marland Place in their Memory Care residence in 2021. The facility is in a very nice building - clean, well maintained, and nicely designed. The standout for Atria Marland Place is the staff. The aides, housekeeping, nurses, janitors, receptionists - EVERYONE is kind, caring, and willing to help! I cannot stress enough how much it helped knowing my Mom was among people who truly cared. During an incredibly stressful time in healthcare, and particularly in eldercare, the staff at Atria Marland place always went above and beyond. In my opinion, the aides, janitors, and housekeeping in the memory care unit deserve medals.

It was a great experience all the way around. We looked at a lot of places and we were so pleased with Benchmark Senior Living. It is an assisted living model that can take you to the end of life instead of having to move to a hospital like setting which is why it was so special to us. I would recommend to others looking.

Our family had an in person tour and we really liked the facility. The only reason we did not choose it, was another facility we looked at had a better room set up that was on the first floor. However, they gave us a very thorough tour, it was a very nice place.

This community is fantastic, we never want to leave. There are a lot of activities here and my wife is a piano player so the community will ask us to play the piano and sing songs for the other residents. The meals come out nice and hot and they change everyday. The dining staff have been very nice. On Monday's they have tea and scones. The staff members are very friendly and have kept up good communication with us.

We chose Sunrise at Gardner Park because the memory care unit was small, they only have 20 or so residents so we thought she would get better care.

They are starting to bring back the activities which is great, that are being very careful. They also allow pets, so our loved one has her dog there which is huge plus. We really like that our loved one will not have to go to a nursing home if need be. They will just increase the care depending on their health, and they have a dementia unit there. We also really ike the apartment set up here, it is much like our loved ones previous apartment.

I thought the staff did a great job of communicating with the family. They reached out to us virtually every day, with pictures and emails. They went out of their way to keep the my loved one in the facility, even though she had some behaviors that were difficult to manage. They really went above and beyond to help. We did have to provide some private aides to assist with that, but hey helped us get everything arranged. I think they provided excellent care given the circumstances of the pandemic. It was not the easiest of times. They kept their positivity rates very low, and they did a good job of communicating with the families when there were positive cases. I think they did a very good job handling the pandemic. Overall it was a very positive experience. I would recommend it highly.

We chose Stone Hill because they had a memory care unit, the people were very nice, and the facility was brand new. They have things like a hair salon, dining room, movie theater, etc so they have a lot of offer. They also had a shared room available and the price for that was great. They are great with communication, they even email me pictures of what she is doing. They seem to have activities going on hourly and they are keeping the residents very busy. The thing that was most important to me that was the staff members have all been here a long time and very knowledgeable, they did everything in their power to make me feel comfortable and I feel like we are a team. I would absolutely recommend them to others looking.
