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.

We loved Dover Place. It was clean, bright, energizing and an all around happy place to be. The staff was pleasant, interactive and personable. We will be moving my mother in this week!

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.
