tour of Dover Place

I toured Dover Place and the experience was fantastic! they were very accommodating and willing to give me a tour on a Saturday. everyone was very friendly - from the residents to the staff - they went out of their way to greet us and make sure we've been helped. they left a great impression on me and seemed to have everything; but we chose another community because Dover Place was too far away from my loved one.

I wish we would of found it sooner

Dover Place has been such a positive experience so far, the staff and their care services are a 5 plus. Our loved one is really enjoying the meals, and the activities are wonderful. There is always so much going on, we have been able to see a few of them when we come to visit and they are great. The value seems to be very comparable for everything they have to offer. We used to have a care giver come to our home which our loved one did well with, but now being at a community our loved one is thriving. Having dementia, and being surrounded by others with dementia helps her feel normal, and does not stress her out. The environment is very stimulating, and this is a place you would want to put your loved ones.

Very nice facility and friendly staff. Pricing options were discussed with me prior to the tour and I was sent pricing info via email; however, when pricing was discussed on the day of the tour, the pricing was not the same as was discussed and documented, it was higher.

Highly recommend, great family place

Dover Place has been great. We chose this facility because the overall reviews we saw online were all positive and the hospitality and friendliness of the lady that we dealt with. It is more expensive but the care is well worth the money. The visiting hours are great. They have activities for each type of person and they have a lot to do. I would recommend to others looking.

Our Tour Experience

Our tour at Dover place was very nice. Everyone we interacted with was very nice, the facility appeared very clean, and we actually got to see the residents actively participating in a craft project, which was nice. The sales person was great, and she put us in touch with a nurse for the tour. We ended up choosing a different place that I liked the look and feel of a little better, that was closer to home as well.

Hello, I really enjoyed [names removed]. All were very pleasant, upbeat, and informative. The place itself was sunny, airy, and inviting. The rooms were really nice as well as the rest of the community. I could find nothing to complain of.

My Disappointed Experience

The community was always friendly. However, they wouldn't give us enough information about our loved one's condition when we would call. I feel they didn't check on my loved one enough when they were there.

I can't say enough about how impressed we are with this facility. My Dad was so happy after he toured Dover Place that we cancelled our other tours and signed the paperwork. He is moving in on [date removed]! The staff are excellent and the facility was clean, well cared for, and beautiful!

Nice Facility!!

I thought this place was a really nice facility with a lot of great amenities for all of the residents. They did a good job keeping the community well maintained and very clean in all the rooms. They had a wide open floor plan that was easy to navigate through. It was just not the right location for my family and I in the end decision.

Friendly staff!

Dover Place was also a nice community. Everyone there was friendly and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was just a bit too expensive and we chose to not move her in the Dover area.

Not impressed!

My first impression of Heritage of Dover was that the community did not feel like home. The staff were very kind and addressed all of my concerns. The community was clean throughout. The feel I got from the community just made me feel like I wouldn't want to live there. This was not the place for my wife.

Lovely community, very welcoming - Michele is a long-time employee, extremely knowledgeable and answered all of our many questions. It was also noted that she personally knew & warmly addressed ALL the residents by name as we toured, which spoke volumes. This is our first experience with AL communities, and were quite impressed with everything (quality/selection of food, amenities, room, treatment of loved ones, etc.). We toured the community first as a family, then had Dad come enjoy a complimentary lunch and tour. Dad agreed to stay for a week-long respite to 'try it out' and thoroughly enjoyed his stay. All the staff are awesome, esp Nancy & Kyla in Activities. They were truly committed to building a relationship with Dad, sitting with him to gently gather interest information & then personally inviting him each day to programs of possible interest. Their communication with the family was A+!! Overall, Heritage really listened to our feedback and truly made Dad's stay a positive and pleasant one - we'll be back for sure!

Good Decision

I am so glad we chose Heritage in Dover for my dad. He is very happy and cared for. It is a small community where everyone knows my dad and with good meals and plenty of activities he is very content. I don't have to worry that he is safe and looked after
