Review of Mars Hill Retirement Community

My mother has been at Mars Hill Retirement for almost 2 years. The all around care here is very good. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice place for their loved one.

Wonderful, caring, and professional

Mars Hill Retirement Community has been a wonderful place for our mother to spend her senior years. We were told when we were looking to bring her there that if she came they would love her and they have made her feel loved. She attends most activities and enjoys the lovely dining room for meals. We rest much easier each day and night knowing she is safe and happy.

A Wonderful Fit

Mars Hill Retirement Community has been a wonderful fit for my mother. She has made numerous friends and loves the staff. The only room I see for improvement would be cleanliness. I would like to have her room cleaned more thoroughly. My family no longer has to worry if she is taking her medications or if she is eating nutritious meals. I would highly recommend Mars Hill Retirement Community to anyone.

The front office staff have been very helpful. They try to keep activities for everyone to do. The food is just fair. The maintenance group does a good job.

Review of Mars Hill Retirement Community

I moved here April 2017. I thought I would bring my past professional experiences, but found out it was the best living experience that I had ever had to "learn" about myself. I am an only child and had a wide variety of experiences working with others. The support of the staff including the CNA's is most exceptional as are the activities, food and day trips.

Delores, you are a joy to be around! Thank you for choosing us to be your extended family!

Review of Mars Hill Retirement Community

We toured several nursing homes and my husband was in a rehab unit after living in MHRC for awhile. Food and staffing in all places was terrible. MHRC is like a posh hotel by comparison. I join my husband for dinner or lunch on several occasions and the meals are wonderful. His comment after being in rehab for a month was "I want to get back to my cheerful CNA's and enjoy hugs and laughter and enjoy eating again!"

Maureen, You and your husband are such a delight! We love having you here!
