Mom's first year

Mom has been at The Stratford for a year now. They have done a great job of dealing with her "special" issues as a smoker. We toured several facilities and still feel this is one of the best available for the price. Mom feels she is in a fancy hotel/apt building - the decor and ambiance are very nice verging on elegant in mom's opinion. Our family members travel a lot and never worry about her well-being or care. They have a well rounded list of activities. Communication is very important.

Homey atmosphere

We ended up picking this facility because the value of care for the price was great and my Mother would be close to other family members. When you first walk in, you notice how beautiful the community and that it has a great homey feel. The staff members are all attentive and give excellent care to my mom. It’s a new facility and they are improving every single day. Everything is what we anticipated and more. I would absolutely recommend this facility.

The Stratford

I toured The Stratford for my mother, and I thought they had a really great program, but I thought that my mother would be unhappy with the rooms. They seemed a little small to me, and I knew she wanted a room on the first floor. They unfortunately did not have any opening s for rooms on the first floor, so we continued our search.

Such A Blessing To Find

I left the decision up to mom as to where she thought she wanted to move to and she chose this community. It's the perfect location just about a mile from my sister. My mother is happy and comfortable and that is extremely important to me it reassures me that we made the right decision. She can go out with family or friends for shopping or go out to eat. The staff is very friendly knows the residents by name and is very interactive with them. Since mom has an eyesight problem the activities director emails me weekly activities and I will respond with what I think mom will be able to do. The food is wonderful very appealing.

Tour for comfort

We toured this community for care for my mom. The staff was nice and caring. The community is clean and we liked the environment. We would recommend this community to other families to tour for the care of a loved one.

Due to my health situation, I needed the option of nursing home care. While the Stratford was very nice, they didn't have that option.

Not the community for us.

This community seemed dark as there was not a lot of sunlight coming into the community. The community seemed clean. I did not see a lot of activities when I visited. You could hear the sound of the traffic outside of one of the rooms we saw. I did not think this would work for us.

I would not recommend!

When my father was in the assisted living, it was good but once he was moved into the memory care that's when things went down hill. There was no personal attention and they would not take him to any activities. They were available but they never went and got him. The food was not good and I feel like all they did was house him while he was there.

I feel safe and comfortable with her living here.

Mom is doing well at The Stratford. The entire staff are very friendly and approachable. They have a core group of people that are professional and mom likes them. They offer daily activities. Mom enjoys bingo and the musical entertainment. She likes the food and the variety of choices they offer. They have comfortable meeting places for the residents to socialize. The community is very clean and I would recommend it.

An intimate atmosphere!

We have seen some improvement in my mother in law since she moved into this community. She seems to be getting a better diet and she does not seem to mind the food. They have a lovely dining room. The staff seem quit caring, concerned and get along well with her. They get top marks on their cleanliness. They offered a lot of activities for the holidays and this community does not feel like it is in a commercial place.

Comfort For Mom!

My mother is doing well since her move to this community. She is still adjusting and is getting along with the staff and residents. They have a variety of activities, and she is joining most to get to know people and make friends. The place is very clean and the food is good as well. The only thing we wish they could improve on is the medical staff, they could be more on top of stuff. There are some things my mother has asked them not to do but they can't seem to remember. She is happy here, though and we think it's a great place so far.

Worth taking a look at!

I did not like the feel of this community. It felt a little to fancy, uptight and stuffy. The person that took me on my tour took the time to answer my questions. They did not ask anything about my mothers likes and what her needs are. They were not as accommodating when it came to dispensing medication. This place was not a good fit for us but it may be a good fit for someone else.

nice place, but not sure it lives up to the sales pitch.

I don't have much to compare the Stratford to, as this is the 1st memory care unit my parent was placed in. It is very expensive considering the services provided. The meals are ok.. the engagement by the staff is minimal, there does not seem to be enough staff based on the monthly costs. Clothing comes up missing.. bedding come up missing. I think the people that work there care and do their best. But they are spread a bit thin. The off the menu option has never been offered, and the flexible meal times has not been offered even if the family is there for a visit, the visit is interrupted and meal is served. some of the residents sit for hours staring off and there is no engagement from staff, the staff is over worked. But it is clean and I feel my parent is safe there, and that means a lot.

Need help with the follow up

The staff at this community is friendly and caring. The only thing is that they did not do a good job about keeping me informed and following up on my loved one. The food is healthy which I like and my loved one likes. The community is also always clean.

Not big enough!

The community was nice, but the apartments were not. The apartments were small and not good living space. The community did however, just open up a new wing. The community was also clean and taken care of. The staff was able to answer all my questions that I had. I would probably be hesitant to recommend people unless they don't mind the small living area.

This is an unbelievable facility that truly cares about its residents. I couldn't think of a better facility for our loved one to be living in.
