A Welcoming Environment

It's a very nice facility. My brother is younger and has gone there for respite care not expected to go beyond a few months. It has been a very good experience. The facility is very clean. The staff is very supportive and attentive. I really don't have bad things to say about it. The only thing I wouldn't give particularly high marks to is the food - it's just is okay.... Read more

Terrible

When I call the Director [name removed] she does not respond to or acknowledge my calls. Very unprofessional. Now, when I send a package to my family member it is not only opened by the staff, but my family member has to go to reception and demand the contents of the package. It’s a disgrace on how the residents and family are treated.

We definitely made the right choice

We reviewed, visited and did background checks on all the well known residential care homes in the area before entering into dialogue with Leslie at Maplewood. Following initial conversations and visits, my Aunt moved in [date removed]. After a year I’ve nothing but positive feedback to give about the level of care, friendship and support provided at Maplewood, Darien. During [date removed] I was able to visit and witness everything for myself. The overall environment is lovely, very clean, modern, homely and welcoming. The staff are excellent, each and every one always taking the time to smile, acknowledge and speak to the residents, so important for their well-being. There are many interesting and engaging activities, so always something to keep everyone engaged. Priority one is does my Aunt appear happy living there, answer definitely yes. On returning from a trip out, she marches straight back in without looking back, happy to be “home”. My thanks to everyone at Maplewood Darien.

Thank you so much, Stewart. It is our honor to care for your aunt and we have enjoyed getting to know both of you. Your endorsement is validation that we are providing the care we strive to have for all of our residents and their families. We will share this with our team!

run away

both my niece and husband observed a resident in a wheelchair being yelled at and hit by a staff member. other family members came to visit and saw residents in wheelchairs sitting in a quiet dark room, while the staff were on their phones. when they asked them what was going on, they replied that the tv isn't working. it took for my family to give them a hard time for them to roll a new tv in. I've personally found my mom in her room with the door closed, dark and no tv in the middle of the day. the aide working with my loved one (who requires a wheelchair) left her in the bathroom and she fell and hit her head. we had to rush her to the hospital. although it wasn't completely explained, I believe the aide left my mom standing/holding on to the bar because that's the only position that makes sense for the type of injury she sustained. they have a policy that if you move your loved one out, you need to give them a 30 days notice. we sent an email to the district manager explaining why we were leaving and they still wanted their money. we found this completely unacceptable because not only are we paying for services and care that won't be used; but the nature of why she was being moved was caused by one of their staff. contractually, we understand that - but we're still very upset as this was an emergent circumstance. it's also just not right considering what happened to her. we're glad that we got out her out before they had a big Covid outbreak a short while later. during the move out process, the maintenance man helped me take her belongings out and the nurse passed along her medication, but that was it. no one called and apologized for what happened or to say goodbye. no one asked what they could do to improve or where they went wrong. if I worked there, I would've asked, and I found that entirely unusual. they also screwed up our billing at one point. they sent the insurance company an invoice for the days she wasn't there and that took months to resolve. anyone who has financial struggles will likely be struggling even more because their billing department just seems inefficient. the building itself its nice and we really took our time to look into this community. we thought that this would be a good place, but it just turned out to be horrible. the entrance is like a prison, you have to go down to the basement and then through a series of different floors and locked doors. the doors required an access code and only the staff had it, they were never willing to provide us our own code. sometimes we had trouble leaving because of the locked doors. there's a big turnover with administration as well. they have all of these activities for the independent/assisted living floors, but nothing for the memory care residents. the residents all seemed to be checked out, and we see a significant difference between Maplewood residents and the new community's residents. the staff there are way more attentive and engaging. the new community also gave us a fob so that we can enter the building on our own. they also have an automated Covid checkpoint before you enter, it's just all around significantly better. we were able to evaluate this community from the perspective of a doctor and a nurse, who both have tons of personal experience in senior care. there are simple things that they could do to make this place better. we don't have any other information on any other Maplewood location; but we do not recommend the one in Darien. the seniors there are at a serious disadvantage. there were numerous reasons why we did not have a good experience. we're just happy that we were able to get her out in time. she's much better at the new community and all of the issues we had at Maplewood, we don't have there.

Very nice community decor/patio caring staff. Maybe improve housekeeping could increase programs geared to make residents, not much for them to do. I think short staffed probably due to Covid. My husband thanked me for choosing MW. Satisfied with my husband's personal care. Good food too.

Overall, I would recommend

We chose Maplewood at Darien because of the location, they have 24 hour nursing care which is something my mother needs, and I liked the facility itself. It is very up to date and open and airy. My mom has Alzheimer's, for this type of care she is not really able to take part in the activities. I would tell others just to keep in mind your loved one may be spending a lot of time in their room. The rooms are on the smaller side and the cleaning and laundry have not been all that great. But I know that she is being well taken care of and I would recommend to others looking.

Excellent short term stay

My husband was just discharged from Maplewood after a 6 week stay recuperating from hip surgery. We were very impressed with the staff and facility. The rooms are bright and airy and my husband was able to walk the halls numerous times a day accelerating his recovery. Under difficult conditions of the Covid Virus they did a very good job during lockdown. When it was safe to congregate again, they provided numerous social activities during the day and movies at night. There is a small gym for working out. The dining room, “pub” and community rooms were beautifully decorated and always spotlessly clean. Weather permitting, one can walk in a lovely garden space. The Darien Maplewood is located within a few miles of two excellent hospitals, Norwalk and Stamford, certainly a great advantage. We would definitely recommend Maplewood if you or your loved one needs round the clock care in a lovely facility.

Vaccine administration clinic

I am a wife of a resident in maplewood Darien. I attended vaccine clinic on the [date removed] . I was incredibly impressed by the organization of the event . The staff’s roles in the process were clearly defined and the operation run smoothly and efficiently . Congratulations to the hard working staff and staff from higher management who arrived from headquarters and elsewhere to support the process. Residents’ and caretakers confidence increased during the process and I am sure their experience will be helpful for residents in other Maplewoods facilities and their families ito make a decision to vaccinate . With great appreciation for the hard work of the staff. Best wishes to all.

Very Happy Daughter

I was looking for a community for my mom and started my search at Maplewood at Darien . I was very impressed how clean the community looked and the attention to details in all their services. The apartment is nicely sized and it had a beautiful view to the patio. The community was accessible for someone with wheelchair or walker . It felt more like an upscale apartment building than you would expect from a senior living community . I saw 2 other places before deciding with Maplewood Darien , and i am happy to say after 3 months and seeing my mom settling in and made new friends, that i am very happy to have chosen this community .

Genuine care and kindness...

Cannot say enough wonderful things about Maplewood at Darien! What sets it apart is the genuine care and kindness of the staff....whether nurses, aides, office, dining room.....everyone! Not to mention encouraging their residents to socialize and meet one another; even making it safely possible during this COVID19 pandemic time. Lastly....the beautiful decor, gardens and cleanliness are certainly a plus as well. They make it truly feel like home.

Maplewood in Darien - a good place

Wonderful caring staff, beautiful furnishing, feels like 5 star hotel. Speedy action response, Easy access to Manhattan. just an hour train ride from Grand Central and 10 min walk, No car needed. Good food too. The new Stanford hospital is nearby. Transportation provided by the facility free of charge to local doctors when and if needed. There are good doctors around the area in case special doctor visits are required. Hairdresser is available inside the facility. Dentist visits periodically to provide service on site. PT and OT available upon request. Private nurses extra but good service is available when and if needed. We are very pleased with the choice of the facility
