Location is still very good (more like a 15 minute drive) but amenities are really strong - the coffee shop in particular is a really nice feature and something that my mother would love. The dining options, activities, and overall facilities condition are all great. Also, I think that, because of the size of the studios, these might actually be an option for my mom and also might be easier to navigate without the additional walls/doors. I did read a few comments that the care was inconsistent and that a few people had felt the need to bring in outside help in addition to the onsite care. Do you have any thoughts on how I should interpret that feedback?

High level of care and concern that is top end / upper echelon in assisted living care programs

It is pricey, but if you have the money it's well worth it. The room was excellent, very beautiful. They had staff there all the time, and my loved one was constantly seeing the staff even when she couldn't see the residents. The staff were always letting me know if she needed anything - cat food, Boost, etc. The smell from the kitchen was absolutely wonderful. It made me want to eat there. The location is great, easy to get to. There are nice views from the rooms, and the grounds outside seemed very nice. During Covid, they did everything they could to keep people safe, for instance meals served in the rooms. They went above and beyond to make my loved one comfortable. They're offering a lot of activities, including presentations on different countries, exercise groups, and even one-on one exercise instruction during Covid. There's a memory care group for activities at an additional fee. Overall I was very satisfied, and I would recommend as long as it's within your financial range.

Coming Home to NSP

Thank you so much to [names removed] and the entire staff at North Shore Place. You have made my parents transition from the east coast as seamless and stress free as possible. Despite all the setbacks with Covid and my Dad's declining health you worked with our family to get my parents settled into their new environs. North Shore Place is a beautiful community with loving staff and great accommodations. The help of the team at CMFTO , led by [name removed], with the physical move of my parents belongings and then setting up their apartment was "beyond words". We would highly recommend North Shore Place to anyone looking for an Assisted living community for their loved one.

Our father has been living at North Shore Place for a little over a year now, and he and our family couldn’t be happier. At age 92, he’s enjoying delicious meals, various activities including movies, singalongs, and chair volleyball, along with the additional healthcare needs he has at his age. He’s even made some new friends. Their staff, led by Executive Director [name removed], Director of Hospitality [name removed] and Health & Wellness Director [name removed] have been so attentive with our family’s various questions and proactive in identifying what our dad needs to stay healthy and fit and get the most out of his time there. This past year has posed tremendous challenges for the entire staff. Through it all, they’ve taken great precautions to keep the residents safe and well while maintaining a warm sense of community for everyone who lives there. We feel so fortunate knowing our father is in the perfect place with such devoted support to enjoy his golden years.

With Time It Feels Like Home

It’s a scary proposition moving to a new home, especially when that move is solo. My parents were married almost 55 years when my mother passed away. They did everything together. My father is a retired cardiologist and has his interests, but socially, he deferred to my mother to lead the way. He loved her and was content to be with her regardless of the activity. After my mother passed away, my father decided it was time to move to North Shore Place (NSP). Was Dad going to enjoy this? Was he going to make friends on his own? Suffice it to say, the first few months were an adjustment. But the staff persevered and helped him meet new people. Now, nearly five years later, my father doesn’t miss a meal. He enjoys going down and that’s his time to mingle. When his birthday roles around, staff make him feel special. The nursing staff on his floor is top notch and responsive. I sleep at night knowing my father is well taken care of. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

Review of North Shore Place

I lived in assisted living and my husband in memory care. The team is knowledgeable in caring for all its residents. Our decision to move here was a wise one. My being here makes it easy for me to be with him whenever I want to see him day or night. I have met many people I have not seen for years. I went to high school with many of them. It was nice to see them after many years.
