Value for cost
Digby Place was the most expensive facility we looked at but it was the dirtiest. The floors were not swept and stained. The director gave us a tour and tripped on a metal plate they have in the middle of the hallway which raised red flags, that is a huge fall risk. They showed us the dining room and said they were having hot dogs that night which is not a nutritious meal.

A few years ago it became obvious to my family & I that my mother was no longer able to care for herself because she was in the early stages of Alzheimer’s. After much research with regards to full service private pay facilities in Lafayette, we chose Digby. My mother was NOT pleased when we informed her that she would have to leave her home of 25+ years. It took her a couple of weeks to adjust to her new environment, but the excellent staff at Digby Place made the transition easier. Prior to becoming a resident at Digby Place, she had little social interaction, did not eat well, & rarely did anything physical. She now has made new friends, enjoys the great food, & participates in daily group activities. Digby’s staff assists her as needed & kept me well informed of her status when visits were limited due to Covid. I'm very thankful for the team at Digby & their assistance in raising the level of her quality of life. She is doing so well now she might out live me!
This is a truly special senior living community. It is the perfect size without being too overwhelming to maneuver. It’s a great place to be able to maximize independence while knowing help is available and readily accessible if needed. The leadership and staff are approachable and readily available to assist with not only care but acclimating residents to a new environment in a way that makes it feel like home the minute you walk in the door.
Digby is a smaller community, but feels like home the minute you walk in. The residents can receive a wide range of care under one roof, and the response time when a call light is pulled is 5 minutes or less! If you're looking for assisted living for yourself or a loved one, I highly recommend Digby Place!
I have worked with Digby Place for 8 months. It’s a great place to work. We have a home like environment here that makes you feel welcome and comfortable. Glad to be a part of the team (family) here.
Everybody we crossed paths with and encountered were very friendly and we thought the care services were great. While our mother was there she really enjoyed the meals they served. We really liked the location and the smaller size of the community. We also thought the value was excellent.
We chose this Digby Place because it was a smaller community compare to to we saw and it was also close to family. The room sizes here are adequate. Our only complaint is the food, it is definitely is something they could use improvement on. They were institutional meals and not very flavorful. I would tell others that the administration was very easy to work with and very accommodating to our family. The CNAs were very loving and compassionate as well. I would recommend as long as the food is improved.
Digby Place is ok, the cost was all over the place. You start at one price and then almost double within six months. Due to the control of medications it almost doubled the cost for us. The staff and nurses were great. The food was ok, it didn't have much flavor according to my loved one. My loved one's room was good.
I picked Digby for my sister that has dementia at 71 and they had a better age mix of residents. with covid i was unable to tour the place in person, and still unable to visit my sister in her apartment. I have mixed feelings about staff, as some are very helpful and some are not so much. Given what covid has done to my experience placing my sister, I will wait till things open up to get a better feel of the place. I did hire a home health care person to go in twice a week (she can, I can't?) to spend one on one time with my sister and feel that has helped my sister settle in somewhat.
I liked the rooms and the information provided by [name removed]. It's a place I will surely consider if I decide I want to stay in Lafayette.
I have lived here over 7 years. I have made lots of friends and there is always plenty to do for games/activities. The nurses help when I don't feel good, and I am always well taken care of.
Things are very active at Digby for my sister. Sometimes too active, so keeping a closer eye on the weather to make sure conditions are safe would be better. The apartment is well kept and clean. She is happy there and that is very reassuring for her family. The food is good too thanks to a solid team in the kitchen.
Our loved one has completely come out of her shell since moving into Digby. Here, she is treated like family. It is amazing the difference being at Digby has made in her. When she was at another facility, she was shutting down and spending all her time alone. She does wish they would have biscuits and gravy more often, ha ha! She is more relaxed at Digby than we have seen her in a long time.
It was my lifesaver! I was to the point I couldn't take care of myself or my mother. I had just finished rehab therapy and my 2 kids had been looking for a place for us to go. My son [name removed] met [name removed] and looked around Digby, and assured me there was nothing to feel guilty about since I couldn't take care of us anymore. The day I got out of rehab, I moved in here and I've loved every day since! I've made friends that I don't know what I would do without. Mom was at my house for so long that we never went anywhere, I never went anywhere for fear of leaving her home alone. I know that she is taken care of here at Digby and I can have a life again. The activities keep me very busy and they are great. I don't ever feel like I'm just a number.
Having worked in geriatrics since 1975 and helped several family members in their later years, I was pretty familiar with most of the nursing homes and assisted living facilities in the area. I only knew of Digby by name. Now I see it as one of the best kept secrets in town! Some licensed facilities, with whom I was familiar, provide minimal hands on assistance, charging for all extra help, like meds or they bring in outside home health agencies for personal care. Digby serves a wide array of clients. Some are very independent, even still driving on their own. Others mainly need some structure, regular meals, reminders or assistance with meds. At the edge of town, away from traffic, with 2 sides overlooking crop land, the atmosphere is peaceful and homey. The dining room is like a nice sit down restaurant. Apartments are spacious and private. Even more importantly, staff have considerable experience with various levels & specialties of nursing care. This is topped off by a tremendous heart & knack for caring with persons struggling with compromised memory. The interior patio is convenient, accessible & safe, even for those with memory impairment. Our loved one thrived there recently much more than in some other local facilities, able to engage more in conversation, enjoy the flowers, décor, persons coming in & going. Staff were delightful and helpful to families as well. Prices are much more reasonable than traditional nursing care. It looks like a much easier transition for those facing increasing challenges on their own. I am very glad to recommend this very pleasant and welcoming community.
I have never met such kind, compassionate staff! My sister and I called over 50 places for our father to stay and Digby was the only place that helped us and walked us through the process. [name removed] is awesome!!! [Name removed], the director of nursing, came on her day off and evaluated my dad. And [name removed] the director helped me go through all the paperwork with ease. Thank you!!!
Do not recommend Digby Place. Dark & dingy, smelled musty & tour guide was talking bad about other communities. We were happy to leave!

We're sorry to hear that your tour of our community wasn't up to our standards. We will forward your feedback to the community and continue to improve.
My father stayed at Digby Place for only a few months but we enjoyed the warm and friendly staff and the attention he received while he was there. A trusted home for your beloved family member.
Due to a family job relocation, it was necessary to move our mother to Lafayette into an assisted living facility. I had visited a church member at Digby Place several years ago and remember him being quite happy there. Therefore, Digby Place was one of the first places we visited. We were greeted very warmly by staff and even a few residents. We immediately felt a familial connection. Digby Place is a rather small facility, consisting of about 40 rooms in a quadrangle with the dining room and activity rooms in the center. While we visited a couple other local facilities, none seemed to compare. All were missing that “family” atmosphere we found at Digby Place. During the year when our mother’s health deteriorated, we always found the Digby Place staff very attentive to her needs. Even during her last moments, staff were present with her and it was obvious they felt a loss just as we did. We would highly recommend Digby Place for your loved one needing assisted living.
We needed assisted living for my dad when my mom was recovering from surgery for 6 weeks. We looked at several places, and Digby was the first choice for all. The staff is wonderful and caring, from the administration to the housekeepers to the maintenance man, all were amazing. They took great care of my dad, and although he was not looking forward to 6 weeks anywhere, he was pleasantly surprised how much he enjoyed his stay. He made many new friends and was sad to leave. It was such a relief to his family that Digby was able to meet his needs and make him happy. I would highly recommend Digby House. If we have any more needs for assisted living, we will come back to Digby.
