Lindsay Place in Pennsville Township, NJ
5.0

I just cannot say enough about the community and staff of Lindsay Place. The staff sincerely care about the residents and their families. They go above and beyond with each and every resident to ensure that they are comfortable and well taken care of in every way. They have made the transition for my parents seamless and have been there for not only mom and dad, but myself and my siblings; day or night. I would like to give a special "shout out" to [name removed] and [name removed] for always going the extra mile to ensure that we understood the process and were there to answer any questions we might have; no how big or small. I would highly recommend the community to anyway who is searching for a safe, comfortable and caring facility for their loved ones. [Name removed]

Dover Place
5.0

Dover Place has been such a positive experience so far, the staff and their care services are a 5 plus. Our loved one is really enjoying the meals, and the activities are wonderful. There is always so much going on, we have been able to see a few of them when we come to visit and they are great. The value seems to be very comparable for everything they have to offer. We used to have a care giver come to our home which our loved one did well with, but now being at a community our loved one is thriving. Having dementia, and being surrounded by others with dementia helps her feel normal, and does not stress her out. The environment is very stimulating, and this is a place you would want to put your loved ones.

Milford Place
5.0

I think that my mom feels safe and there are a lot of activities. They are taking great care of my mother and I would highly recommend this community. They have activities like bingo, chef classes once a month, residents come down for a party all together once a month and they have a really special meal for the residents. There are plenty of activities even a mardi gras celebrations, daily work outs and more for the residents to do to stay busy. This community feels like a village set up and there is a bird area also where the residents can go and watch the birds.
