The staff at Methuen Village were very nice and took a lot of time with us. The people seemed happy there. I had no issues with them. They weren't our first choice simply because the location wasn’t ideal for our family.
We toured Methuen Village and it was a nice tour and they answered all of our questions that we had. It is a smaller community, only around 22 residents so I felt more crammed here than at some other places that we saw that were bigger. It did not seem as clean, they charged extra to do laundry, and it was more expensive so we went with another facility.
I m very pleased with this community. My loved one is happy to be here and visiting with other residents. The staff is wonderful. During the lock down there were some residents who were social eaters. The community was able to use proper social distancing and brought others together. This allowed the residents to eat more.

Thank you for your endorsement of Methuen Village! Throughout 2020 we did try our best to remain a vibrant community with residents socializing and enjoying meals together. Thank goodness our "lock-down" didn't last too long. We are back to full-service dining and residents are engaged in enjoyable activities, entertainment and fitness classes. With our community among the first to have access to the vaccine in January we very much look forward to getting back to a full normal in 2021!
We chose Methuen Village because it was most affordable and the location. It was in between distance for all of the siblings. It was easy to get to for everybody. They did the Mediterranean diet here so it was very healthy, overall the food was pretty good. One thing he really liked was they would bring in entertainment for the residents. he always looked forward to that. My father thinks that they needed more activities geared for men, he was not into gardening or painting or things like that. My sister and I were here 2-3 times a week so we got to know the staff members very well. We had good experiences with them for the most part. They always really tried with my father and were very kind and responsive. I would definitely recommend the facility.

Thank you for your endorsement of Methuen Village. It is true that we offer very reasonable rates for our area, and people are often surprised at that when they see how beautiful our community is. We did take to heart your recommendation to offer more programs specifically geared to men, and have planned some great things for our male residents for 2021! I am glad your Dad enjoyed the entertainment and our delicious food. He was a delight and the entire staff loved him.
We had a relationship with Methuen Village before my mother moved in. She did respite stays there when we went on vacation. She got to know them and they got to know her so when she moved in it made the transition much easier. I don't have a lot to compare it to but in looking at other communities I feel they are a good value. They are very accommodating.
Methuen Village is a very well run and maintained assisted living and memory care facility. The apartments are spacious, well equipped and nicely laid out. Best of all, the staff's performance is just stellar. Everyone is friendly, competent and genuinely concerned with the well being of their residents. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Mom had been in an extremely nice community but she needed to be more independent so we moved her here and that was the best choice for her. it's a smaller community which is nice and it gives off a homier feel to it. She is getting out more and doing more acitivies. I haven't' asked her about the food but I am assuming she likes it since she is gaining weight. The staff is wonderful very friendly.

So far everything is working out well for my mother with her move to this community. I'am pleased with all they have done for us.

READ THEIR CONTRACT CAREFULLY. IN LESS THAN A MONTH MY MOM FELL TWICE WHILE UNDER THEIR CARE,NOT ACCEPTABLE ,SHE ENDED UP IN THE HOSPITAL AND WAS NEVER WELL ENOUGH TO RETURN TO THE HOME .
Response from Methuen VillageJune 20, 2017
I can appreciate your frustration that your Mom fell while living at our community. This was unfortunate and I can imagine it was frightening for her. As you may be aware, seniors are at high risk for falls whether they live at home, in an assisted living community or in a nursing facility. In fact, falls are the leading cause of hospital admissions among the elderly population nationally, and can result in injuries and even death. Falls are often caused by chronic health conditions, such as heart disease, dementia and low blood pressure, which can cause dizziness or impairments, such as poor vision or muscle weakness. Also, some illnesses and medications can affect balance which can lead to falls. All of us in the assisted living industry are well aware of this common problem and, collectively, we try our best to help residents avoid falls through falls prevention programs, and keeping a watchful eye. Unfortunately, we can’t prevent every fall. We do, however, regularly examine any falls that have happened at our community to incorporate any lessons learned into our falls prevention program. I am sorry that your experience did not match the standards we expect to meet for our residents and their families. Our community values Resident Quality of Life above everything else, and we do everything we can to provide personal care and supportive services to ensure a safe and comfortable living arrangement for the seniors who live with us. Please reach out to me with any continuing concerns. We welcome feedback that can help us to do even better in taking care of our residents. I can be reached anytime at [removed].

Greeted warmly by staff. Really nice to see lots of residents in midst of daily activities. The facilities were very nice, and the rooms were wonderful. Enjoyed hearing about the heart healthy menu, another plus. The country kitchen is a very nice touch. I could see my mother liking it here.
My mom took a tour of this commpunity. The staff was nice and the community was well taken care of. We did not move in here.
The guide that gave me a great tour of the community was very nice. He informed me of all the activities that are offered. Their great beautician that they have in the community. I really liked the interaction between the staff and the residents.
My father in law was here for a respite stay and everything went very well. The community is very nice looking, and it is an older building. The staff was great and very helpful and kind. He was able to try some new activities during his time here. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. He did like the food and the dining area. Overall it was a nice experience and I would recommend it.
Everything is going great so far. The staff is friendly and very caring for the residents. The offer a lot of activities where everyone can participate. The food is good and the facility is always clean.
So far so good. She is really happy, she loves the people and she loves the food. She is participating in most of the activities, and they try really hard to get people involved. No troubles with billing so far, but it's still new.
I think the Methuen Village is very clean. The staff is engaging. Overall, it has been good for him. He gets to be in a socializing environment. He seems to like it, although he does talk about leaving every other day. The people are nice. It's a good place. It's a nice community. I can't rate the care services because he doesn't use it. It is not applicable.
Not very bright or cheerful. Seemed more dated and not as clean as other facilities. Dementia portion seemed more depressing than any others that we visited. Rooms have carpet, which does not work for those residents with incontinence.
We chose Methuen Village. I am very happy with them, I think they are great! I would rate them very highly. They do a wonderful job. The staff is friendly, and it's clean. I don't have any complaints so far.
It will definitely be Methuen Village, if and when the time comes. Liz the contact person has been wonderful. I would highly recommend this place, it's newer, and even less expensive than most, and we looked at a few different places.
