4.5

The times I have been there, the pace is clean and the staff are friendly. During the Covid-19 pandemic, they did a good job with keeping the residents safe. Overall, they are very good with keeping our family informed of my sisters care, which was important to us. They do seem to have a lot of activities available and my sister seems to enjoy them.

Carriage Green at Milford
5.0

Mom has been at Carriage Green for three years and she is very happy. The staff is so friendly and warm and truly cares about their residents. The community is very cozy and always clean. The residents eat their meals in the dining room that looks into the courtyard. They have many activities including games, crafts, daily social hours, music, movies, etc. I live in another state and the staff always keeps me informed as to what is happening in the Community. I feel so confident that my Mom is being well taken care of. When we visit, we are always welcomed with friendly faces and they all feel like family! I highly recommend Carriage Green to care for your loved ones! With COVID, it has been a very difficult year for nursing homes and assisted living communities. The Carriage Green Team has followed all state protocols and has gone out of their way to keep our loved ones safe and healthy!
