Highly Recommended
Every staff member at Bay Square is fully engaged and always willing to lend a hand in any situation. They are kind, thoughtful, and patient at all times. Most importantly, from the leadership staff to the CNAs, they seem to be able to deliver care in a way that is positive and effective without being intrusive. Every resident is assigned a day to expect housekeeping to tidy their apartment, as well as a day that their laundry is collected and washed. Additionally, a laundry room is provided for those who wish to do their own laundry. I have been most impressed by the level of communication exhibited. There is an app that I use to see my mother’s daily schedule, and that same schedule is delivered to each resident’s room at 9 am each day, as well as being posted around the facility. (It’s like being on a cruise ship!) The executive director sends emails to update us on pertinent information such as a positive COVID test in the facility. The nursing/PT/OT staff also communicates so I know when my mother’s situation changes or when a particular need arises of which I should be aware. The leadership is also very open to meeting or to receiving calls or emails from family members and responding to such in a timely manner. We moved my mother to Maine from South Carolina. When we arrived, the leadership staff was literally waiting in front of the building to greet us. My mother was so happy to be welcomed into the community in such a loving and caring way. Such a beautiful first impression! The meals are first rate! They are served in a lovely dining room, restaurant style. The “specials of the day” for each meal are posted daily, but there are many delicious choices beyond the specials. My mother is a finicky eater, but she has nothing but praise for the food here! Also, the dining room manager meets with the residents to solicit their input, which is much appreciated. I cannot say enough good things about Bay Square! Not only is the facility aesthetically pleasing from the exterior New England “ski lodge look” to the well-appointed interior, it is obvious that staff members put the needs of the residents first. They take time to learn their names, as well as the names of family members. They treat them with dignity and respect and make them feel special. They are true professionals, always keeping the health and safety of residents in mind. The team works collaboratively to provide seamless care and service to all of the residents, which makes the entire community function in an exemplary way. My mother hasn’t been this happy or engaged in a long time, and that gives me peace of mind, as well. Without reservation, I would highly recommend Bay Square!

Disappointed
It is very expensive. I believe the staff care about their clients but they are very poor at communicating with the family. Any changes in med of behavior are not communicated to spouse or POA. Even internally there can be a communication void, ie between PT and nurse.

Feels like family
We chose Bay Square because it did not feel institutional, it had a more homey feel to it. They have all private rooms and it is more than adequate for what he needs. They have been so much like a family to us and treated him so well. The head of nursing is such a loving and caring person, he has gone above and beyond to help us through. He is a real gem. I would absolutely recommend to others looking, it is more expensive but you get what you pay for. They are not all about the money.

Things have been going great here it is not going to be a long term stay because she has been improving. The people are very friendly, there does seem to be a slight shortage of staff members right now. The management is very nice and trying their hardest. She has made some friends here and she has actually been asked to make wreaths around Christmas time for people who wanted them. They are also asking her to help with other activities since she is very creative. I would recommend them to others looking.

A Wonderful Place for Wonderful People
I would tell others that if you have a deep enough checkbook send your loved one here. They all care about what they do. The Director of Care will come with tea for my loved one and allow them to choose which cup. She then sits and visits with my loved one.

Covid is Turning a Great Experience into Prison
The activities score is based on normal, during COVID it would be a rating of a 2 stars. It is very nice it is a group that isn't too big. There are only about 45 people in assisted living, and 35 in memory care. It is a great location. I looked at a bunch of other communities and this was the best around. They are part of a larger part of a corporate office, and if the Federal Government doesn't change the rules they will kill more residents because of the unknown liability issues due to the Federal Government guidance. The Federal Government is giving guidance and the State is asking for Nursing Homes and Assisted Living residents to harbor in place due to the Federal Government guidance. The community doesn't have any COVID cases. The residents aren't able to dine in the dining room and are forced to eat in their rooms. They aren't able to socialize right now. If you make a break for it, then the community will lock you in confinement for 14 days due to quarantine rules.

Feels like home.
We moved my father in to the memory care part of Bay Square in August. It took him a while to get adjusted but he is very much feeling comfortable and content. They have a variety of activities and they encourage participation but respect the individuality of each person. The staff is very caring and sensitive to the needs of the residents, and we feel very lucky to have found this place for my father. It also helps that the location is in a charming town and beautiful area, so getting out and exploring is always a pleasure.

My visit was very successful in that I discovered that the provider would take care of my needs only for so long as my finances held out and at an estimate of nearly $10,000 per month for both myself and my wife, that was only about 4 years. If we survived after that we would be forced to move to a facility that accepted Mainecare. He was kind enough to suggest that perhaps his facility is not what we were looking for and referred us to an alternative of pursuing something like hospice or Visiting Angles and a facility that would accept Mainecare like Avita in Brunswick Landing. I will explore these other alternatives.

Bay Square's overall experience is unsurpassed
Bay Square is the model of a kind, compassionate residence for seniors. To call it "Assisted Living" doesn't do it justice. They DO assist in every way but MORE -- they focus on supporting their residents to live as fully as is possible to the very end with activities and a joyful spirit. The staff, with exception, are helpful, happy, and kind. Prior to Bay Square, Mom lived at two very comfortable Senior Residences and one Rehab Center prior to Bay Square and Bay Square outshone them all in every way. We could not have been happier, and more grateful, for their care for Mom.

Great Care and Comfort
My mother went to BaySquare after a fall at home. It was an adjustment to transition from home to an assisted living, but she quickly became very happy there. She loved the social aspects...sitting by the fireplace talking with friends, sharing meals with others, exercise classes and Bingo. The care, meals and activities provided a balance for her happiness. Her care was exceptional. The staff were personal, caring and compassionate. They took the time and really got to know her and her likes and needs. Mom's last days of life were spent at BaySquare. It was so comforting for her to be there, at home, with people she knew and loved caring for her. BaySquare's nursing staff treated her with great dignity and supported our family in this time of need. As a family member, there is nothing I would change about my mother's experience with BaySquare.

Not Quite The Right Choice For Mother
The family thought we had made the right decision in taking mom out of a skilled nursing community but we were mistaken. We had attempted to give her a little more independence that we thought she was in need of however now she has recently taken a fall and we realize skill nursing is where she belongs. The time she spent here though she really liked. She really enjoyed the staff and the residents and she enjoyed the food. It was just obvious that she just needed that extra care they couldn't prove which wasn't anyone's fault at the community

We found that though Bay Square was very nice it was just too much like the current living situation. We really need to have more focus on dealling with memory care and we did not like the Harbor area as much as at Avida. Plus the tour guide was not as informed about our situation so the experience was just OK.
