Maplewood at Weston
4.5

My father has resided at Maplewood for 1-1/2 years. He has a very comfortable handicapped equipped apartment with a full kitchen. Maplewood offers a variety of activities for it's residents. The activities director and assistant work very hard to provide a range of engaging activities for the residents, including, but not limited to, concerts, discussion groups, and movies. Additionally, my father particularly enjoys working daily with the physical therapist in both balance classes and one on one strength training. There are a number of comfortable gathering spaces located through-out the residence. During the warmer months the residents are able to enjoy a very spacious and nicely furnished terrace. Throughout the ongoing Covid pandemic the staff, as well as the corporate offices, have worked tirelessly to keep everyone healthy and engaged. In particular I can't thank them enough for cheerfully helping my father to become comfortable with zoom. Their help enabled us to regularly "see" one another during an especially difficult time. The staff at Maplewood are all caring and kind, working daily to create and maintain a positive and engaging environment for the residents.

Traditions of Wayland
4.7

My dad was determined and prepared to remain in his Wayland home. He moved to Traditions of Wayland in December for a two month “respite”, not long after a bad fall and several broken bones required hospitalizations and weeks in rehab. When the Traditions Resident Care Director, came to his discharge planning meeting I knew he would be in good hands. [name removed]’s intelligence, compassion, expertise and kind sense of humor inspired trust and optimism. Her resident care staff are especially cheerful, responsive, respectful, skilled and kind. I look forward to seeing them whenever I visit. About halfway through his “temporary” stay at Traditions, my dad decided to become a longer term resident and now lives in a nice apartment furnished with his favorite belongings. He has developed friendships and relationships that are meaningful and bring a new kind of purpose to his days. I am continually impressed by the quality of care and assistance he receives. The staff is responsive, communicative, cheerful, thoughtful and dedicated. From welcoming and informative greeters at the front desk, to the kitchen staff and activity planners, administrators and maintenance staff, everyone is dedicated to providing a pleasant and meaningful experience for the residents. I am grateful and proud to feel part of the Traditions of Wayland community.
