Not the best decision for our loved ones

The Kittery Estates community is beautiful to look at and its kept very clean but that is about it. The individual house keeping in our loved ones room is really lacking. They have had staff turnovers, the previous staff team was very friendly, but the new staff team not so much they are almost cold towards the residents. The meals are not that great, our loved ones are having to buy a lot of their meals. Every once in awhile they will bring in live entertainment to sing to the residents which they really enjoy, but they say it feels like their living in a nursing home. The value is extremely high to live there especially since they are not getting all of the amenities and services.

It's an Okay Place

The majority of the food is subpar. You can count the vegetables on the plate. I think it could be much better. The quality of the vegetable is okay. There is a cost to have food delivered to your room if outside of the pandemic. There was supposed to be cleaning available for the apartments and the individual has never been here to help with this. They have activities available to participate in, if you choose to. I think it is overpriced for what you are getting overall. I think the parking is convenient. The staff are very nice; however, there are no staff after 7 pm. There has been a lot of turnover in staff.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to rate and review our community. We regret to hear that you have not been completely satisfied with your experience and are confident this does not represent our community as a whole. We have had some new team members onboarded recently, including a new GM, and are excited for the changes to come. For a period of time, food was delivered to residents doors per protocols, however, we are pleased to now have our dining room open to our residents to dine and interact. If you have any further concerns you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact the community directly. Thank you

Can not recommend at this time

My mother-in-law is at Kittery Estates and we have have received at least eight unsolicited comments regarding how poor the food is, even aside from being delivered cold during the COVID issues. Her room has not been cleaned in 3 weeks and their contract is for once per week, and this has happened several times previously. We understand there is a new manager, but the issue with food transcends the manager's abilities. Something is seriously wrong when so many people are reporting the same thing, despite the manager telling us that he is hearing good things about the food. A private health care worker who sees people in the facility reports that she received four phone calls just yesterday which were all complaints about the food. Covid or no Covid, these elderly folks deserve so much better, especially for what they are paying. My own Mom was at Kittery Estates for several years about five years ago and it was awesome - we used to be a great advertisement for the facility - great food, events, etc. Sadly, we are considering, with several other tenants, moving my mother-in-law to a different place. The food is the biggest issue - and it is, sorry to say, a very big thing when you don't want to eat because "hot" meals are cold, vegetables are served way under-cooked and the main courses are ill-prepared. Some residents either go out for food or shop for their own food.

It's Lovely and Beneficial

My mom is here doing okay in general. There are many advantages of living in the community. It's very nice and I had meals with her and I meet the people. They were bending over backwards being very nice and friendly. She has a caregiver who helps her within the community.

Very Pleased With This Community

We are very pleased with this community and everything they have done for us. Everything is working out very well for my father here. He really likes it here, and I'am satisfied. He has a room that is twice as big as the room he had at the other community he was at. Everybody is respectful and polite. The food is great. They have great activities on site, and also nice outings outside the community. We couldn't be happier with this community. I would highly recommend it.

Moving to Maine

Couldn't be happier. More friendly, courteous and efficient staff. Spotless. Nicer, larger room than his previous abode at [Removed] at half the price. Food excellent, good variety, fresh bread baked daily, lots of choices and staff eager to please. Accommodate his needs with services on site and transport to medical appts.

Another elevator would be nice, they only have one elevator and it gets a little crowded and people have to wait.

An Incredibly Positive Experience

My mother recently moved into Kittery Estates. We were all impressed by the friendly staff, cleanliness and ease of her move. My mother feels welcomed and included after only one week. She is very hopeful and excited about her new life in an independent living lifestyle because of the quality and care at Kittery Estates. We honestly only have positive comments because this has been an incredibly positive experience.

It's been great so far.

It's been great so far. The people are friendly, it's clean. The food is good, she likes it. They have lots of activities and entertainment, exercise classes, and they would have something going on almost every night during the holidays.

RIP OFF

Not only does this company raise the rent by a percentage rate on the anniversary of the person (parent) that moved in, but they tell you one thing and do another. They went through 3 different managers in less then 2 yrs of my mom being there. When my mom was in need of assisted living and had to move out of their independent living facility, I gave them proper 30 day notice of her moving out YET they tried to charge me an extra month following that 30 days. Also during the last 30 days where as my mom was absent due to medical reasons, I was told that she would receive a refund portion of her rent paid for the meals she missed. After not finding a credit to her account regarding this issue two months later, I've called and emailed this company over and over again with NO response. Finally, after being very persistent yesterday to actually talk with someone in billing I find out that they have a SYSTEM on how they figure out on what they OWE you and it came to a grand total of $50 for the month! ARE YOU JOKING ME?

A place for Dad!

I was at a loss on what to do, how to compare, what the cost would be and ensuring that my Dad was in a place that I would be proud of but more important where he would be happy, healthy, safe and have fun. Kittery Estates met with me and listened carefully to what my Dad's needs were. They showed me around the property and helped me to see how my Dad would fit in and be able to do the things that he loves as well as maybe try something new. They were very kind, knowledgeable and compassionate. They truly understand what a difficult process it is to help a loved one understand that they need a little assistance. My Dad is very happy. He especially loves the food! Thank you SO much!

Bigger Community

Very good. I actually thought my mother would have liked this one better. It was a little bigger and my mom liked the smaller size of another one we saw. They were very good but they were a little big more expensive and to get in there you had to put down a month and half of rent which is pretty substantial. It was a nice place.
