A warm and welcoming environment with exceptional service
We recently moved my Mom into American House Keene for assisted living. We had looked at several facilities and felt this would best suit her needs. They worked with us for almost a year during the decision process and couldn’t have been more helpful. Once we selected her apartment we spent a few weeks preparing everything with her things to help make the transition as easy as possible. From the moment they met Mom everyone was welcoming, kind and professional. The staff are amazing and the residents are wonderful. While it has only been a few weeks, my family and Mom couldn’t be any happier. Delicious food, clean beautiful environment, active community and exceptional staff. Best decision we could have made.

Great experience with my aunt being there during covid.
My aunt lived at American House for a little over 2 years. When she went in, she could see but little by little she lost her sight. The staff was wonderful to her even tho she got angry and was difficult to deal with.....they always took great care of her. Even during Covid, the staff was so good. All the nurses and the other staff were always so helpful. My aunt also had mental health issues and they were always attentive and made sure she was safe. We as a family always appreciated all the great care she recieved at American House. I would recommend American House to anyone looking for a great, caring place for elderly family members to live.

American House was home
My father lived in American House, Keene for eight years; six of them alone after my mother died. American House was absolutely the best place for him. He had company, care, and companionship. The staff were terrific. I never had to worry about him because I knew caring eyes were on him every day. At the end of his life, Dad came home to American House for hospice care. The staff - kitchen, nursing, admin, activities -all came to visit him, sharing stories, and telling him they loved him. When he passed, they cried with me. I could not have asked for a better place for Dad.

We are very very happy with our experience at American House Keene. My youngest son went in to visit and he has been in a number of these facilities. He said that it is a shame that not every place is like this. He was blown away by how comfortable everyone seemed and how friendly and happy the residents were. I would highly recommend this facility to others and already have.

A Place Worth Visiting
They ending up doing a trial stay for a week. There was a Covid outbreak during their week. So they did not get the full experience due to that. They thought they food was excellent, the staff were excellent. The facility was clean and well run. This is where my parents wanted to be. Food variety was good, flavor was good. Smaller portions but can ask for seconds. It's not inexpensive, not super expensive.

A great place to live
We chose America House Keene because it was really close to where we lived. The people who showed us around for the tour bent over backward to accommodate us, they could not have been nicer. They do offer independent living as well as assisted living here. We have a 2 bedroom suite that has a full kitchen, it is a great size for what we need. The activities are extensive and they do a good job with those especially for the size of the community. We have made a lot of friends here and I would recommend them to others who are looking.

Finding Bentley Commons was a blessing. Employees are very caring and meet your requested needs. Apartments are excellent and very comfortable. Standard menu should change frequently and not be the same choices for a long period of time. If they do change frequently, we have yet to experience it.

Bentley went beyond my expectations! Fantastic!
I needed to find a place for my parents and had only two weeks before my dad was discharged from the hospital (broken hip). Their home was unsuitable for recuperation and really for their long term safety and comfort. Bentley and Bonnie, specifically , worked quickly and with a heartfelt effort to make this transition possible. My parents said they were willing to stay for the winter. Well, their feelings about a short term stay changed almost immediately. Within two weeks, my mother began to talk about selling their house and where she would put all her furniture. Every time I visited she would exclaim "we love it here! How did you find this place?" I was elated that they were in a place that not only provided for all of their needs (nursing care, meals, friendship and social activities) but a place where every employee treated them like family. And I'm not exaggerating when I say EVERY person that works at Bentley . This includes staff in the kitchen, maintenance, concierge and the variety of nurses and therapists. It is clear that Bentley raises the bar high when they are hiring. Do not hesitate if you are looking for a comfortable, safe and supportive location for your parents. There is a shuttle every day for errands, doctors appts and sometimes just for a quiet scenic drive around the area. The food is delicious and not institutional at all. Thank you to Bentley And All of their wonderful staff!

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the New Hampshire regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about New Hampshire regulations for Assisted Living.

A Place for Mom has scored American House Keene 9.5 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
