Wish we had found them sooner in our assisted living care journey!

My loved one has been through several places, and Governors Glen is the cleanest I've seen. I like that the person who created it did so for his parents, so it's well thought out, and a lot of love goes into the facility. The care has been really great, and you can tell the staff and the residents really enjoy themselves. They have activities going on all the time. We've had no issues - this is basically the perfect place. I just wish we could have chosen them first! It is more expensive, but I understand why.... Read more

About the facility Governors Glen

Governor's Glen opened in 1999 as an exclusive Alzheimer's/memory impaired assisted living community. Its founder and owner, Dr. Paul A. Colon, was a caregiver for his mother, Millie Michaels, who passed away from Alzheimer's Disease in 1997. Becoming an ALFA certified developer, he used his experience and knowledge to help design an assisted living residence that looks and feels like a home, not a hospital or hotel. Dr. Colon learned through his experience with his mother that socialization is the key to survival for a person with Alzheimer's. His mother was staying at home receiving 24-hour care when she fell and broke her hip in 1993. She was almost non-verbal and had lost much weight prior to her fall. But with a stay at a rehab facility, receiving social stimulation, she began showing signs of cognitive improvement. Dr. Colon was inspired to build a place for his mom, a place where residents would be loved and cared for and safe. His mother passed away before the dream could be realized for her, but her picture hangs over the fireplace in the parlor at Governor's Glen, with a plaque inscribed: 'Dedicated to the memory of Millie Michaels and all those who...

Major Issues

They have no security upon entry. Anyone can just walk in, and it is unsecure and safe. I am removing loved one, and highly not satisfied with services. The three biggest issues, inclues; cleanliness, security, and lack of showering. They only provide showers twice per week. The rooms were not clean enough, and the bathrooms/showers were unclean, and toliets were stopped up.

My Tour Experience at Monarch Villa at Stockbridge

Good community. The staff was too loud. The community felt dark and this wouldn't have been a good fit for my loved one. Also, the person that was scheduled to give the tour passed the duties to another staff member with no communication to me about the change.

Beware of Governors Glen

Do not go to Governors Glen - ever. My father was left dirty with urine all over him. They doubled his medication to the point that he was almost comatose, which sent him to the ICU within a very short period of time after moving in. In the hospital, he was diagnosed malnourished and dehydrated, with toxic levels of medication in his system. His organs shut down, and he died shortly after that hospital stay. Before entering Governors Glen, he was active, walking miles at a time, and generally healthy.

This is Not an Assisted Living

The office staff were very nice; however, the caregivers weren't nice. There was a verbal argument with a caregiver one time. The office staff were willing to try and fix issues when brought to their attention. There were difficulties with making sure my loved one received their medications. The staff didn't know how to handle ordering my loved one's medication as well. There were times the food was not suitable for my loved one. I ended up having to take food to my loved one because of this. I ended up taking my loved one out of the community because of the issues we had.

Good Community, Still Needs Updates

I like the community. There are certain rooms that could use some updating. The resident's rooms could also use some TLC. The only activity available for the residents is exercising. It appears the activities are limited, and I'm unsure if this is COVID related.

I would highly recommend this community to others for their loved ones. There is a lot of caring staff and administration. It is a smaller community. Every experience we had was great with the staff.

no this place

I had several issues with this community. They used Covid as an excuse and did not come up with safe ways to continue things that were necessary like physical therapy. we had several items come up missing and there was an issue with theft. I would not recommend this community. The director would communicate with me and would not return calls or texts.

Don't Go There!

They were rude. They lied about the issues of my loved one. They tried to isolate me from seeing my loved one. They left her in poop. I had to get the police so I could see my loved one. The wrist of my loved one was broken.

Highly recommend

We had a great experience with Governor's Glen Memory care. My mom never complained about the food, they were very nutritious and they were really good about portion sizes and snack in between meals. While we were here there was a great activities director, she had very interesting activities and always kept the residents engaged. The staff were always very supportive and accommodating with anything we needed.

My experience with Governor's Glen

We chose Governors Glen because of the convenient location to our family. Her room here was on the smaller side compared to some others we looked into. The food here was not good quality and it was cold when it was delivered. I would recommend depending on your circumstances.

The staff members at the community are always friendly, and the care services are excellent. When we speak with our loved one she is always happy and says the meals are good. They also have plenty of activities to participate in, she is constantly kept busy.

Be prepared to supplement your loved one with different food

We chose Governors Glen because it was strictly a memory care facility and very close to my house, that way I could go visit often. She went from a very large room to a single room here, so it was on the smaller side. One big complaint we had was the food. It was not fresh and by the time it was served, it was cold. They served things like hot dogs and french fries and did not offer any condiments to go along with the meals. There were also not a lot of activities that I was aware of at all, and I would pick up the calendar weekly. From what I saw, this facility seemed clean and the staff members were nice, but they were not very interactive with the residents.

This community was spacious, it was kind of a unique layout. The rooms are on the smaller side. If someone asked, we would recommend this community to a family or friend with reservations, it would depend on the health of their loved one and the dementia phase they are in

It's a Good Place to Take Your Loved One

I was able to leave my loved one for five days for a break. They had different activities for each day that he was there. I would recommend it. I tried to visit a second time, and when I called to see if they had availability and they didn't have room for him. There isn't a lot of traffic, the setup is great. There are different pods and security for your loved one. The pods had their own dining room, activity room. My loved one and I liked the set up of the pods.
