We love AVITA

I can't say enough good things about Avita of Needham. My mother moved there when they opened 2 years ago with our fingers crossed. It was brand new and no reputation however they have lived up to everything they promised and then some. Wonderful caring staff, management accountable and available and Mom has been treated like a queen. the building is beautiful but more importantly, they truly understand dementia and how to help peole live their best life. Unfortunately, her disease has progressed yet they still treat her with incredible respect and compassion. I highly recommend Avita to anyone who has a family member struggling with memory loss.

Nice place but not the right fit for my father-in-law

My father-in-law was in there for two weeks are we are moving him out. Everyone's situation is different and he just wasn't right for Avita. It's a beautiful facility but we put him in memory care and he didn't have enough dementia. He was too aware. It's really a nice place for the right people. My father-in-law needed a few nursing things like bloodpressure monitoring and they couldn't do that. It is very clean and friendly. They just weren't used to dealing with someone who was more with it. I would recommend it to people with parents with dementia. I feel the aids could be trained better, but that's for the whole industry, not just Avita. I think they should put more thought to training the aids to be more present and care a little more.
