A fun & friendly place for seniors!

It's a good place to go, but in regards to the cost; everyone seems to have a different price, but for the same apartment. For example: what my mom is paying compared to other people who have the same size apartment can differ. Different residents get locked in at different times, and some people have a raised rent. They've increased the rent for one person by [price removed]. So my mom is concerned about having to move to a state facility or having to find a new place in general. Other than that concern, they're great people. Every time I've visited Essex they're super nice and they know me by name. They take the residents out on bus trips and outings; I just think they're really nice people. I would recommend Holiday Essex House to others.... Read more

I have been singing its praises to our family and friends

I really enjoy everything about Essex House, I am very happy overall. The staff are very supportive, helpful, kind and I feel safe here. The meals are really good, I enjoy the flexibility of being able to eat in the dining room or staying in the apartment. I love the view out of my apartment. This community has given me a sense of independence again.

Our tour experience

Our family had an in person tour and we noticed pretty immediately there was a moldy smell to it, and it was dirty. It was just a mustier old facility.

A good temporary solution

We chose Essex House because of the location for our family, it does allow my mom to still have a car on property, she also has an exterior door where she can go right out to her car. She has a 2 bedroom apartment and it it good size but it does not have a kitchen to cook meals. What they show on their website for meals is not what they actually serve, so I think that it needs improvement. The residents here have all been friendly. Overall my mom is very comfortable here and I would recommend them to others who are looking.

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 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.
