Ocean Meadow Senior Living in Clinton, CT
5.0

Ocean Meadow is a small community, and the senior staff has been there for a long time. They're deeply committed to memory care. What I was looking for more than anything in a memory care staff is patience, and that's something they brought up on their own. Their staff is very well trained in memory care. The Recreation Director is fabulous. Mom is so happy there. They post pictures and are very communicative. They send me texts if something great happens or if they need to connect about anything else. They're just amazing and so attentive. Mom loves the food. She plays piano, so they arranged to have a piano in her space, which was so thoughtful. The whole place is beyond my wildest dreams. And it's a great value compared to other paces looked at.

The Saybrook at Haddam

My 103 year old mother has been here since spring [date removed] (with a summer off in Nantucket). We have been very impressed with the personalized service from all the staff, including professional care from the nurses. My mother had to recover from a fall and staff worked closely with my family to make sure that my mother got the care she needed to recover as much of her activities as possible in a safe and appropriate manner. The facility seems more like a Marriott than an assisted living facility. The food is surprisingly good, including wine at dinner. There are smaller private dining areas for family events, which we have used for than once. I could not imagine my mother at any other facility. I sleep well at night knowing my mother is safe and just five minutes away. The pool table is great too...

The care services have been very good from what we can see, but we are a little concerned with the lack of physical activity on the memory care side. We wish they would have more of a stimulating environment. Non skilled nursing community and is expensive.
