Would recommend for a family that is persistent and present in advocating for their loved one during Covid.

There was an extreme lack of communication from the nurses and aides who were actually assisting my loved one. The administrative folks were very responsive. But as far as getting blood pressure readings, making sure medications were being administered, that bed linens were clean, and that my loved one had basic supplies, there was no communication from the people who were taking care of her. Which I didn't like at all. This very well could have been because of Covid. But because of Covid, I think communication should have been even better, as opposed to what I experienced. I understand that had I been able to go inside more and see for myself, my questions would have been easily answered. As it was, it was difficult to ask over the phone and then not get a call back. When we moved my loved one in and out, it was very nicely kept, and it didn't smell. I can't complain about any of that. She told me that the food was great. She was a dessert fan, so desserts evidently were really good. And they often had fresh fruit, which she enjoyed.

Be Cautious

My ratings are based during the pandemic and what my loved one has told me. The communication skills are horrible. I have to call them for everything. I didn't get any email about the visitation options to see my loved one, after opening up.

Review of Commonwealth Senior Living at Gloucester House

I moved my husband to Gloucester House at the beginning of the year and after an adjustment for both of us, I couldn't be happier. They call me and keep me updated on changes, they recommend extra care needed and always run it by me first. They show love and care, laugh with him, and let me talk to him while I can't see him.

Would recommend this community

This community has an entire schedule that shows all the activities they offer for that week, and before COVID they would take the residents out to eat at different restaurants. The rooms they have there are very clean, nice and roomy. The food is great, and the chef is great.

Review of Commonwealth Senior Living At Gloucester House

The staff has gone out of their way to keep my mother safe during this COVID019 pandemic. They have tried very hard to keep things running as normal as possible in the Memory Care unit to keep the people that live there calm and safe while updating their concerns, also. They have done an outstanding job under a lot of pressure!

Review of Commonwealth Senior Living At Gloucester House

Our experience here has been mostly wonderful. Improvements can be made by paying the staff a better salary so they will stay longer. More can be done for the moral of staff as well - rewards, encouragement, praise. During this pandemic, more should be done for the residents to safely socialize and get exercise.

Review of Commonwealth Senior Living At Gloucester House

This facility is by far the best in this area. Most of the staff and associates are professional and courteous to both the residents and their families. I feel comfortable having my husband there. I know he is getting very good care. The facility is always clean and the food the residents are served is excellent.

Review of Commonwealth Senior Living

In my opinion, this facility is totally understaffed. My mother (resident) is a fall risk and has been left on the toilet for 30+ minutes because staff is spread so thin. The good and efficient CNAS want to do better but can only do so much. Covid has presented its own problems as residents have been confined to their rooms for extended periods of time including eating 3 meals alone day after day. My mother is mentally alert and sees these deficiencies too.

DO NOT place your loved ones in The Cottage Memory Care

Do NOT place your loved one at this facility. My father’s last undocumented fall resulted in him no longer being able to walk, he has trouble speaking, and the staff who should have taken care of him and been attentive to his needs say what you want you to hear to your face and then work to cover up staff inadequacies on every level. My family and I have have filed a complaint with the state. My father was neglected which resulted in his demise, medication withholding which I have records and proof, medications “misplaced”.. this facility should and will be audited to the fullest extent and I pray that those caring for staff are fully reviewed, drug screened , and nursing leadership and some med tech REPLACED My father spent every dime of his retirement given this this facially to take care of him. My mission is to make sure that they are investigated so that no other resident ends up like my father. I have copious notes and photos which have been submitted to the state I am more than happy to discuss specifics with anyone considering lacing their lives one I the cottage, memory care Please call me I have documentation and photos

After going on a tour at Commonwealth of senior living at Gloucester House and seen first-hand how the residents are treated and how badly management treats the staff it really made me sad the assistant Rcd is very disrespectful, the RCD talks down or their staff, treats them really bad after speaking with a couple staff members residents are not properly cleaned which is leading to alot of infections, I would not recommend anyone to send their family member there [date removed]

It is too early to write a review. I will give a comprehensive review after 6 months. One positive is that my mother seems content with her status.

I was most impressed with the Sales and Marketing Director and the tour that she provided. I liked the core values of the community which she presented and the residents I encountered seemed generally engaged and social. While the accommodations were not sufficient for my in-laws, I am considering it for my Mother when everyone else is settled!
