Gina F - Loved one of resident/client
This was the best choice for our parents

Commonwealth Senior Living gets 5-stars across the board. We absolutely love everything about this community and the staff members. Anytime we have a concern it is addressed immediately and they explain how it will be fixed. We are so pleased with the love and care our loved ones are receiving. We finally have a peace of mind. The staff members do this because its a job, but they genuinely care for these residents are treat them like family. Also the location is very convenient for us to visit, and they are very open for families to visit.

Good for respite stay

While our loved one was there the staff members were very friendly. The activities were still pretty limited but they did have things like bingo and brain exercises. We do think the value for cost is right on par with the other communities we looked at.

I would recommend

We chose Commonwealth Senior Living at Harrisburg at the time mainly because of the staff members. The room sizes at the facility are very nice. I would recommend them to others who are looking.

Tour of Commonwealth

We did a virtual tour with Commonwealth and it was a very good tour, it was a staff member who was taking us around showing us the facility. We did not choose this one because of the location, it was just too far of a drive for us.

our expedience of common wealth

communication between the management staff and our family was good but they only staff the front desk until 5 pm. The community is neat and clean, and the staff is very friendly. I would recommend this community to others based on our experence

my experience

If your loved one needs assistance or medical care other than the basics this would not be the place for you. If you are capable then this may be the place for you.

Closes Thing to Being Home

I highly recommend the community. They have worked with me during the pandemic and any changes that have happened during my loved one's stay. They are very friendly oriented. They reminded me of how I did business years ago. This made me feel good about my loved being there. My loved one feels like she is family there. The staff is very good about the care of my mother. They contact me and let me know of anything that my loved one needs.

1-9 ratio in memory care - looked clean - looked and sounded like they really observe and get to know the residents and work with what they need using techniques learned from "Teepa Snow." Had a small courtyard - looked very plain but they work with patients who like to garden. Concerns = Doors are unlocked but can lock. Residents sometimes end up in each others rooms - can walk around at night as well

Would recommend this community

This community at first was named Greenfield, and the people who worked while it was Greenfield were amazing, and the meals that were provided were really good. Greenfield was bought by another company which is why it is now called Commonwealth. The food now made at Commonwealth is not as good as it was before. We thought this community was pretty reasonably priced. Everyone who worked in the care services were always so kind. This community has two floors, each floor having their own dining room. The therapy is done in the basement which is just an elevator ride away. Each floor had their own parlor. Our loved one had a private room that had a bed, TV, their own bathroom, a double closet, and a kitchenette.
