  • My mother and I toured the Essex House in October, 2018. She loved it, but was hesitant to leave her home. She finally agreed to move in. She's been living at the Essex House since early 2019, and it's been wonderful. Mom has three chef-prepared meals every day, and there are numerous choices daily. Mom loves to play bingo and there are several opportunities weekly. Every day there are activities. The residents love to sit outside - the grounds are lovely. The staff treat the residents like family. My mother absolutely loves one staff member in particular, she even tells her I love you! My family and I feel better knowing she's taken care of, doesn't have to cook, can mingle and chat with her friends and enjoy her day to day living stress free. She's embracing her new life at the Essex House and I couldn't be happier for her !

  • My Mother just moved in not to long ago and I am very pleased with Essex House. All the staff have been so great to my mother. She has adjusted better than I thought she would. The Activity Director there has gotten her involved in activities. She has made a lot of new friends and I feel so at ease now that I know she is safe and there is always someone around.

  • Adjusting well

    Although it was quite the adjustment for me I have definitely found home. This is a place that I never feel alone. All the staff are great and made me feel welcome from the very first day. I have made a lot of friends. The food is great and I enjoy not having to cook for myself. The activities director does a wonderful job with the wide variety of things for residents to do. She shows interest in each residents and what they like to do.
