Safe place for Mom

My mother has been living at Maplewood at Darien for the past 18 months, and as we have all endured hardships since the pandemic, I must say that Maplewood has handled this delicate situation with the utmost care and integrity. The staff is professional, and the facilities are very clean.

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.

send vaccine delivery was as well organized as the first one

The staff is highly professional. All moved in a perfect order. The ambiance in the community was very welcoming, warm and all the residents including my husband who is there for a year now were very pleased. The design of the space in Maplewood is unique. It does not feel like a pricy nursing home but a comfortable pleasing for the eye “home away from home”. I congratulate all the staff and the leadership for the excellent dedicated work . I looked at few communities last January to place my husband. Maplewood Darien was the best by far and continues to be the best.

Congratulations to the hard working staff and staff from higher management who arrived from headquarters and elsewhere to support the process.

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 .
