understaffed but seems like a quality place

Ashton Gardens is understaffed, but seems like a quality place. I think they could improve on their communication with the families/caregivers. they tend to only communicate changes to residents, but sometimes those things aren't always relayed to the family. Because of that, there is some poor communication with people outside of the community.... Read more

bright, cheerful atmosphere with lots of activities

Ashton Gardens is a clean community, every time we come to visit everything looks really nice. She seems to really be liking it so far. The staff have been very nice, the gal who initially gave us the tour [name removed] was fantastic and the kitchen staff has been great. She always talks about the different exercise classes and how they bring in live entertainment.

KWB’s evaluation of Ashton Gardens, Portland, ME

3 meals a day—and excellent at that. Well maintained building, friendly and useful staff. Personal small apartment with kitchenette and a balcony, laundry facilities (or laundry service at extra cost), parking if needed. What could be better for a retiree?!

The perfect place for me

The community is very clean and it is a really nice building. The staff are friendly but they are understaffed and have been going through a lot of changes in management lately. The location is perfect for me, it is only a few miles from my former home which our family still owns. The means and dining service however is horrible because of the staffing. The meals themselves are fine, but the dining service is the issue. It takes about an hour and a half or two hours to be served. The bus driver is wonderful, but the bus does not have a lift for wheelchairs, so if you aren't able to walk you are kind of screwed, but the bus driving is very helpful with any assistance. The activities director is also wonderful.

Outstanding Place for Someone Interested Independent Living

They provide great resources for independent care. The staff is friendly. They have a reasonable amount of appropriate activities for the residents. My loved one is enjoying the food with the quality and taste. The community does special events around the food.

Four Month Stay at Ashton

I would say to make sure that they are independent. There are a couple of people that made it a horrible experience for my parents. One of the managers there wasn't good at all. The food was pretty good. We would visit my parents on Sunday and the noon mealtime was really good. The entire family enjoyed the lunch time meals and rolls. The dinner meals weren't as good as the noon time meal. My parents were told they had to leave on [date removed]. Most of the people at this community are great.

Highly recommend Ashton Gardens for your loved ones

We chose this community because it was new and it is more of a rural setting, more nature oriented. I really gravitated when I met with [name removed], I got the confidence that they ran their facility in a more organized fashion. My mom is in a studio and I have stayed in many of the other rooms and this was the best option for my mom. She has a very nice patio in the back. They do offer a lot of variety on the rooms here. The food needs some improvement. They have a standardized menu, the portions sizes are good, but they do not have a lot of variation on the choices for meals. When I was looking at other facilities, for the services provided here it is a great value. My mom is very active and the exercises they offer seems less than what she needs. It would be nice if they had gym fitness training or more challenging exercises for the residents rather than yoga. It would be nice if they take a poll of what people want to see what activities to provide. I would absolutely recommend Ashton Gardens to a friend or family member. The management is outstanding. The staff members are also phenomenal, they all go out of their way for their residents.

Great Facility

A beautiful facility. Apartments are well appointed and spacious. The amenities are comprehensive. Staff is friendly and competent . Transportation has its limits as does dining. Food is very good but times spent in the dining room can be long and meals are often not hot.
