I would recommend Encore at Hugo to others for their loved ones. I feel that [name removed] did a good job and most of the staff were kind. The most important thing was I was comfortable leaving my loved one here.

Highly recommend
We chose Encore at North branch because the staff that we talked with were wonderful and helpful. We liked that the facility was not too big, some places we looked at were just way too big. And also the location was great for our family. I think they do a fantastic job of offering activities and building community among the residents. Overall it has been a good transition and I would recommend them.

Moving into assisted living is not an easy or wanted transition. The caring staff helped ease the transition for Dad by listening and being attentive to his needs, hearing his stories and treating him like family.

It's a very friendly, caring environment.
It seems like the staff that they have there have been there for a really long time, and that says a lot about the care that they're providing. We've used them a few times for respite, and everybody remembers my loved one and is always really welcoming. It's always been very clean every time I've been there. They put effort into planning activities to try to get people engaged every day, but it seems like people end up spending a lot of time in their rooms, although I understand that's just kind of the nature of this type of place, especially with short staffing.

Bills not paid, place is going to be shut down by the state if some problems don’t get attended to like kitchen plumbing and the sidewalk in front. Nobody ever answers the door nor the phone! I mean this place? Come on!

She's been really happy there.
She's been really happy there. We haven't had any concerns. It's a bit different of an environment than we have been used to, but so far it's been going pretty well. No major maintenance issues, the staff has been friendly. I don't think anyone is perfect, but I would give them a four and a half.

Management needs improvement
Staff care about Residents while management only provides the very minimum of staff per shift. Memory care is most under staffed and Residents are left unattended while staff is/has cares in a specific Residents room.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Encore at North Branch

Encore at North Branch offers Studio. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Encore at North Branch 8.5 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
