Would Recommend

I've been here almost three years, and they have helped me through a lot. They're very compassionate about all the people that live here. Overall, everybody seems very nice. The activities are excellent, and the director has activities scheduled all the time. She's really active with her job and tries very hard to please everybody. I love my apartment. I live in a studio with a nice view of the back. I like that I can go out on my deck, sit and read, watch the deer that come out, and have a nice view. I also enjoy talking to my neighbors. Essex House is in a good location and very convenient to things nearby if you drive; otherwise they have a bus that takes us around.

Meets their needs, and feels like a family

Being out of town i have much comfort knowing my parents are being well cared for and are protected. The staff and their care services are fabulous, they not only are professional but it feels like a family there. They treat them like family and have just been so good to them. The activities are off the chart amazing, the food is not perfect but it does meet their needs. We appreciate that they are working on improving the meals when they hear feedback from the residents.

If you need to go into a facility, this is fine

I chose Essex House because I liked the size of the facility, it is smaller. My apartment is fine for my needs. It is a friendly atmosphere for the most part. Overall I would recommend to others who are looking.

I Find Essex House a Warm and Friendly Place

I would recommend the community for your loved. on I enjoy the staff and the safe friendly environment they provide for my loved one. The meals and meal plans I think they provide a wide variety of meals. My loved one doesn't enjoy the meals, and possibly adding dietary restriction options for residents could be beneficial.

Overaall a Very Good Place, Would Definitely Recommend

It's a very friendly, very clean, nice community. My loved one has really enjoyed the interaction with all the different people who live here, as well as how clean it's kept. The apartments are nice, decent sized, no complaints. The food is good overall. It would be nice to have a little more variety, but what they serve is good.

A great place for my parents

We chose the Essex House for my parents because of the location and the cost. The apartment they have is sufficient, I would have liked to see them have more counter space in the kitchen. I have always had good relations with the staff members here. My favorite part about the community would be the friendliness of the staff members. They show a lot of concern for their residents. They do a good job of taking care of the residents and their needs.

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 !
