Value for cost
We were very impressed with the facilities & the staff at Homestead Estates, it is a very nice place. The only thing standing in our way was the cost. The lowest monthly payment would be $3800, dad only makes $3500 a month & makes some monthly bill payments. We have no other source of income. The staff seemed very friendly, the apartments were very spacious & the facilities were very clean.I could see my dad living there, if we could afford it.
We chose Chaucer Estates because of the affordability and the community is all one level, there are no stairs or elevators which was something we were looking for. For independent living, they have little foreplexes as well. I would absolutely recommend to others looking.
My mom has been at Chaucer for 1 1/2 years and they take EXCELLENT care of her needs. The staff is attentive and caring, and there have been several times when staff really went above and beyond to cater to her desires and needs. My mom enjoys the staff and the other residents at Chaucer. It's been a great new home for mom!
You need to be diligent and go often to get to know the staff taking care of your loved one. My mom did not like the food. The layout of the community and room sizes are adequate. They have a nice outdoor courtyard for residents to use. They have a high turn over rate for staff.

Thank you Charyl for sharing your experience. We use feedback to make our community a great place to live and will pass all your comments to our management team.
Mom has lived at Chaucer for 5-7 years. She passed away [date removed]. Everyone was great and Mom liked it very well. When she passed away a lot of the staff and nurses shed a lot of tears. Staff and nurses do a great job, food good, rooms clean and a very busy activity center. Different programs all the time. I would recommend Chaucer very much. Will miss seeing staff and nurses.

James-- Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other families. It was an honor to care for your mother and as you know, she is missed. Warm wishes to you going forward and of course you are always welcome to stop in and say hi - we'd love it!
Very nice - Probably Assisted living a better choice. Nice 1 bedroom with a den. Everything on ground level. Pet friendly - just not convenient to put dog out, as no back door.
Our mother recently passed away. She had been at Chaucer Estates for almost 5 years. During that time we did not ever have any problems with the care that they provided her. They checked on her frequently and were good to her.

Hi Dan! Thank you for giving us your seal of approval! The perspectives of our residents and their families mean so much to us!
Chaucer has been a good transition for mom and appreciate [name removed] at A Place for Mom for helping us find this senior community for her. The price is good for what she receives, the meals and activities are good and the independent housing is perfect for her now with advancement in care if /when she needs it.

Hi Tammy! Thank you for sharing your confidence in us! We appreciate your feedback and are so pleased that your mom is enjoying her home here at Chaucer Estates!
I am still waiting for a refund check and it has been 60 plus days since his date of death for a refund check to settle his estate. No records are kept on response calls; so I question the validity of having those in the small cottages on the grounds.
My mom was staying here before she had to go into rehab and after she left rehab to come back, they wouldn’t take her back. The nurse that had been working with my mom said that she was at the same level of care as she was before leaving, however the new director disagreed and said she was past a level of care that they could handle even though she had never actually met my mom or done an evaluation. They’ve had some significant management turnover it seems and they seem to be going downhill a great deal. I would not recommend them.
