Amazing Community!

Paul Spring has so much to offer its residents. They have a beautiful community inside and out. There are multiple activities each day that would meet various interests. They have an excellent dining room with delicious food and a lot of menu options. I highly recommend checking it out for yourself!

Warm and inviting!

Paul Spring Community is one of the top communities in the area. From all the communities I've visited, Paul Spring is one of the cleanest, friendly and professional communities in the Mount Vernon area. It is definitely one of my top choices.

An awful place

My mom lived, and died, at Paul Springs. She died as a result of a major covid outbreak in the facility in 2020. The only time the director spoke to me at any length was after my mom became seriously ill and needed to switch from independent care to a high-level of assistance. She made sure the contract was signed. After that, no contact. And then substandard care. I frequently arrived to find my bed-ridden mother soaked in urine from lack of attention. Meals were often not delivered and when they were, sometimes simply placed on the dining room table which she could not reach. I don't believe she was bathed more than a couple of times in two months and she was changed usually only when I asked. I discovered open wounds on her legs which was news to the nursing staff. In addition, after she died I learned they had "converted" her security deposit to "non-refundable." I would give negative stars if I could.

Community Tour

I thought Paul Spring Community was a nice place. But it was too big for what my loved one could handle with her dementia. And it was too expensive.

Tour of Paul Spring Community

My tour was wonderful. Paul Spring Community was twice the size of the other facility I looked at and I just found it to be too big. I did not get a warm and cozy feeling. One of the advantages they did have was the automatic handicap button for the entrance and exits.

Dean E - Resident/client

I've known Paul Springs was here knowing people who lived here so when the time came sociably somewhere my son applied to enroll me. He lives in North Carolina but all my friends are here from nearby Mt. Vernon Unitarian Church. I left my home in Waynewood.

Full of compassion and adaptability

The facility is beautifully maintained, every single staff member is attentive and caring, there are a wide variety of activities, the food is delicious, and the residents seem genuinely happy. Plus, they're a pet friendly community! Having Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care under one roof means that each resident can receive the appropriate level of care, even if those needs change.

My tour review

I was not that interested in this community, it used to be a school and you are able to tell even with the remodeling that has been done. was not as friendly and welcoming as what I was looking for.
