The Terrace at Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia, PA
5.0

I was looking for a place that could help with my loved one's care needs, and I think he is getting good care here. I like the building itself, and the location is wonderful. He enjoys the outdoors and nature, and the facility provides that very well for him. It's clean. I like the fact that I'm able to have conversations with the staff, and they provide me with good answers. The staff are very responsive, respectful, and genuinely helpful. They go out of their way to help whenever they can. I think that they're paying attention to my loved one and his needs, and they do a good job. Whoever is in the kitchen is doing a good job with the food as well, and my loved one is lucky to have that provided to him. It's certainly a worthwhile place to take a look at.

Simpson House, a CCRC in Philadelphia, PA
3.9

We moved from Center City Phila. 3 years ago and we made a good choice: spacious 2 bedroom 2 baths apartment, large living room, and balcony overlooking Fairmont Park. Important to me is the easy access to Center City via public tranportation or company Van. Neigbors have shared similar expriences (selling homes, moving, having new "neighbors," adjusting to communal living and dining). as well as March lockdown re Covid 19 have brought us all closer together. Staff and Management take excellent care of us, especially re Covid: facilities sanitized often; group activities & visitors cancelled; vaccinations (both shots) provided here! Available health care onsite and maybe our lessening ability to care for ourselves will make this move to Simpson House (Cornerstone bldg.) the absolutely right one for the [name removed].
