About the facility
Monarch Southbury

Monarch Southbury, formerly known as Motif by Monarch, is located in the Southbury area, which is full of natural beauty, and our community makes the most of Mother Nature's finest. Located on Main Street South in Southbury, Connecticut, Motif is set against rolling green hills, with several gorgeous parks gracing the town. Our community has secure outdoor pathways and gardens so that residents can enjoy nature from the comfort of their apartments.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to senior care. We know that each of our residents is unique and that their care needs to be customized to fit their unique needs. That is why our staff members form genuine relationships with our residents, so they can best deliver the level of care residents need with the compassion and dignity they deserve.

Joyful connection is at the root of wellness. That is why we are intentional about cultivating joyful connections at every turn.
Our residents eat, learn, work out, and socialize with each other every single day. Our staff members learn who our residents are and celebrate their daily victories. Family members can join in at mealtime and visit their loved ones at any time. By creating a network of individuals who truly...

From our first interaction all the way through my Mother-in-law being a resident for the past two months, The staff at Motif could not have been better. They have made everything so easy and smooth that we could not be happier with the decision.

Review for Motif Southbury
Our loved one appears to be cared for and healthy, and thinks the food is really good and the aides are nice, those are very important positive points. The communication around appointments with visiting doctors has been uneven but they have tried to improve it, so they're making an effort which is also good. The other residents are nice and seem happy. If the level of care goes up under their new, more expensive cost structure, the overall value will decrease substantially and the overall cost will be comparable to more expensive assisted living facilities in other areas like [removed].

The main reason my father decided to move to Motif Southbury over others we visited was because he thought it felt and seemed more homey and comfortable. I would recommend this facility to others.

An Unexpected Happy Place
The community has communicated very well with us and let us know about anything that has come up. It is a small community, but the staff knows our names. In recent days they have allowed us to see our loved one in the courtyard. They make you feel that you are not interrupting them at anytime. They have allowed Face Time or virtual visits to see our loved one, during the lock down.

The Hearth At Southbury
The times I have been there, the pace is clean and the staff are friendly. During the Covid-19 pandemic, they did a good job with keeping the residents safe. Overall, they are very good with keeping our family informed of my sisters care, which was important to us. They do seem to have a lot of activities available and my sister seems to enjoy them.

Review of The Hearth at Southbury
I toured at The Hearth at Southbury as well as many others. I know as soon as I walked in this was the place I wanted to move to when I was ready. As soon as I ended up in rehab I called The Hearth and said "do you have a place for me" they were so helpful and now I am in my new home and I love it. Everyone is so nice and helpful. I feel so relieved -thank you.

Kindness and Caring at The Hearth at Southbury
My mother is a centenarian who has been at The Hearth for five plus years. I have been very impressed with the care and kindness of the staff at all levels. The nursing care is excellent and the aides who help her throughout the day and night are friendly and respectful. She has benefited from activities that provide mental and physical stimulation. They are very good about alerting me to any concerns and in finding solutions for any problems that develop.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the Connecticut regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about Connecticut regulations for Assisted Living.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Monarch Southbury

Monarch Southbury offers Studio, 1 Bedroom and 2 Bedrooms. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Monarch Southbury 8.7 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
