Review originally written on A Place For Mom

Highly recommend

We chose this community because it had a good physical building layout, and my mom is mostly blind. Also the staff was very approachable and friendly from the management all the way down. The room sizes were adequate. The food was good, my mom preferred it over the other place she was at. Our favorite part about the community is how involved all of the staff are with the residents and how kind they and responsive they are with requests.

Elderly Lives Matter

My father was a resident in the memory care unit for three weeks. He fell and contracted pneumonia in his first week. I had to hire my own nighttime aides after one week. I removed him after the third week. I believe my father was being abused in their facility. He had bruises, they couldn’t explain how he fell. These memory care units are not safe for elderly dementia residents. They only care about the money and they are extremely deceitful. My father is gone now, my heart breaks for all the elderly in these places. There is little to no oversight for these facilities. I have attempted to complain to many entities and I’m still trying. If you have a bad experience, keep complaining, keep giving bad reviews. Our elderly deserve so much better.

Review originally written on A Place For Mom

There was a parking spot with my name and a welcome sign when I entered the building and was warmly greeted by [name removed] at Waltham Crossings. She listened attentively and offered some good suggestions for transitioning and downsizing.I felt she understood how difficult the decision would be for both my mother and myself. The experience and [name removed]'s answers to my questions put me at ease...but my mother's follow up visit is crucial to any move, as is the sale of our house and the ability to finance the relocation for the long-term.
