Would recommend Blair House. It's a great place.

Blair House is definitely a great place for seniors who are still able to take care of themselves but need a little help with meals. It's a great community, and my dad has been able to make some new friends. He still feels independent and not like he's in a nursing home. He seems genuinely happy there.

Highly Recommended

All and all I think it is a really nice place. Everybody is really friendly and supportive and try to help my loved one as much as they could. I think my loved one could really enjoy it if she got more involved. She has a cute little apartment with a balcony. It has everything she needs. Meals are good and can be delivered to her room for a fee and she enjoys that option. Housekeeping comes once a week.

Highly recommened

The Blair House is a safe place to be, it is a place where you can put your loved one and do not have to worry. The residents are friendly, the day to day staff, house keeping and kitchen staff are wonderful. The meals are prepared by a chef and even though some of the meals are "off the wall" our loved one has yet to complain She does not always participate in the activities but they have a ton of different opportunities to get involved. We highly recommend this community to others, the location is good and it has great access.

Pleasant Place to Live

I enjoy Blair House and have made a lot of friends here. Blair House is a great place to live. The staff are excellent to work with if I have questions or concerns. The meals are as good as you can expect. Some of the activities available are cards, bridge, poker, bingo, and more for the residents to choose from.

Our Tour Experience

We had a great tour at Blair House. There were just some things about the facility that weren't the right fit for our loved one. They don’t have full apartments there. Instead, the living spaces are almost like a hotel room that offers a little kitchenette, and I just didn’t think our loved one would be comfortable with that set-up. Also, the rooms we saw were very small, and they just weren’t as updated. That being said, there was quite a price point difference between Blair House and the community we chose. Blair House's monthly fee was quite a bit less, and they had lower entrance fees as well. The sales director that we talked to really seemed to want to get to know our loved one and very much wanted to hear about her. She made the touring process very smooth and easy.

A Great Place to Start the Rest of Your Life

I would say to try it. We have already picked out our apartment when we are ready. It is definitely recommended. They have food choices, such as a hot meal, a salad option, and a cold meal. Due to the pandemic restrictions they had meals delivered to the resident's rooms. The restrictions are starting to lift and the dining room is open now. There is lots of things to do for the residents to participate in.

The staff is very caring and friendly.

The meals themselves would be a three in a half, and with the lock down the meals are being delivered to our rooms. The building itself is old it could use face lift, it is just worn out. The staff is thinly staffed and there are. We are very impressed with the friendliness and they try their best.

Very happy!

Location is great--centrally located with hospitals and shopping. Staff is fantastic --knows residents and families by name. They all go above and beyond for the seniors who live there. Activities are great--geared toward the seniors and what they want. I can't say enough good things about Blair House.

They love it here

I helped my friends get into this community and it couldn't get any better. They just needed a little extra help not full care so they have a company that will do what is called spot checks. And help them with their needs as they come up. So financially was a good move. Other places didn't offer this. This place is awesome. They have a trained chef so the food is amazing and it is restaurant style 3 course meals. The staff is friendly and know them by name they know my name. They bend over backwards for us. They come in and clean and do linens 1x a week. They do the personal laundry. I would recommend this community.
