Caring Staff

I'm a muralist who had the chance to work in their memory care unit for almost a month. I witnessed several staff members' relationships to the residents over the course of different shifts and holiday events. All I can say is it seemed the employees truly cared about the residents. They seemed engaged in their stories, always willing to accommodate their needs, and deesculate any panic the memory loss may have been causing. I even heard one employee tell me he "loves his job there, it's never the same from day to day." On the other end I spoke with several residents, and made friends with one in particular that told me she was "proud the facility was investing in the arts to give everyone who lives there something to look forward to." In addition, I often saw the staff organizing things for the residents to do involving music, movement, and even getting out of the facility on trips. Loved ones suffering memory loss can be scary, it seems they are in good hands at this facility.

The best decision we ever made!

My mother moved into Senior Commons at Powder Mill in March of 2022 for a time frame to recover from a small stroke. She wanted to return home and try one last time in November of 2022. In February of 2023 she fell at home and broke her arm and had to return. We actually live in Maryland and brought her to Senior Commons at the recommendation of a friend. The cost was much less than what we would pay in Maryland and the drive was manageable. Our experience was wonderful. The staff were so kind and took such good care of her every need. My mother could be very difficult and hard to really get to know, but the staff there truly took the time to care about her. They allowed her to make her choices and had great patience with her always. She had to go on Hospice and passed near Thanksgiving. The entire team was truly amazing during this time, communicated with us ongoing and held her hand when we couldn't. we will forever be thankful.

Outstanding Facility

My 92 year old mother has been residing in Senior Commons since March 2023. I've waited awhile to write this review to make sure I felt the same way after after 9 months. I'm happy to say that the staff who work here are caring, friendly, and supportive to both the residents and families. This includes everyone from the dining room, front office, CPN's, maintenance, and activities directors. Everyone calls the residents by name as they greet them throughout the building! The Executive Director and Assistant Executive Director are available to assist with any concerns, offer advice, and work with the team to problem solve any issues that arise. They are very knowledgeable about the population and are very willing to work with the family and the resident. There have been several situations where my mother needed emergency care. The staff communicate every incident to the family in a timely manor. Senior Commons has exceeded my expectations in all categories!

How I Reviewed Senior Commons

My son did the leg work to get a list of of all Assistant living places. My wife at that time had problem walking. So I was elected to review the one that was picked. Which was Senior Commons. My impression of the place was all the personnel where very friendly and very cheerful. Everything looked clean and well taken care of. The Lady that showed us around ( I do not remember her name- very pretty) I was very pleased we what I saw and pleased of all the help we got. This is also after one year here.

Not happy with our experience.

The food was completely unhealthy and unappetizing. There were requests for cleaning and repairs to my mom's room that were ignored. Once we left her, the residents were kind to her, the staff was impatient and at times indifferent. There was no walking path outside except for the sidewalk between office and housing, maybe 100 ft total. We all found it to be depressing for her as she was struggling emotionally with having to leave her home and lose her independence so needed more support than she received.

Overall Great Place

After multiple hours of research with the help of my cousin, we found Senior Commons. From start to finish Senior Commons have gone above and beyond to be accommodating to our unique needs. My father was living in New York at the time and to move him here closer to myself and my sister. They were able to work with our schedules to let us set up his space prior to him moving in. I was very worried about his transition to being in an assisted living facility since he was incredibly apprehensive to leaving his home. The team there went above and beyond to make sure he felt welcome. I have done some activities with my father and all the residents are welcoming and they all joke around with each other. I think my father fits in perfectly. There have been a few hiccups there, but after getting all the pieces of the puzzle together, I feel like my father is in the best place to fit what he needs. Every issues I've had, the management team reacted quickly and we found a solution that works.

Review of independent living apartment at Senior Commons at Powder Mill in York PA

December 8, 2023 My father moved into an independent living apartment at Senior Commons at Powder Mill earlier this week. Our experience with the entire staff, specifically [names removed] couldn’t have been better. From the very first time we visited, met [name removed] and she showed us around, we were very impressed. The facility is lovely and clean, people are so warm and welcoming and we immediately felt like this was the right place. Dining room is so nice and food has been excellent so far. Staff goes out of their way to make everyone feel at home and well cared for. I would also highly recommend, [name removed] who they recommended for moving his furniture and other belongings. He was excellent to deal with and the young men who actually moved the things were outstanding. Conscientious, hard working, kind and respectful. Overall we had a top notch experience and would highly recommend.

Experience at Senior Commons

My loved one was previously a resident at Senior Commons at Powder Mill. The move in process was very easy. Communication with the family was good. The housekeeping was acceptable. The cafeteria and Marketing staff were amazing. The meals were very good. I would recommend Senior Commons at Powder Mill if the resident requires no extra care, they lack in that area and would not be a good fit if that's something that your loved one needs.

Review for Senior Commons at Powder Mill

It was clear that the residents were happy there when I took the tour, and [name removed], who gave me the tour, said hello to every patient by their first name. it was evident that she cares about them. and nothing I've seen cents has changed my mind- all of the staff are welcoming and kind. you couldn't ask for a better place for your family member. It may not be as modern as some other places would be, but that was the least of my concern.

Our Experience

I suppose I would recommend Senior Commons at Powder Mill to others. The staff are pleasant. My mother likes everyone there. One thing I loved about moving in is that they paired my mother up with people that they thought she would like. And she made friends. Moving into a community like this is difficult because it's hard to make friends and it's hard when you're no longer in your own home. The communication with the family is excellent. The minute something happens, they call. They have field trips, which my mother enjoys, to restaurants, ice cream, shopping, etc. There are several activities a day available such as bingo, movie nights and cards. The staff encourages everyone to participate. My mother does complain about the food, but there are fresh fruits and salads everyday. The entrees aren't necessarily gourmet, but you won't starve!

Better then expected

I have been very happy with this facility. When we were looking for a place, they were still in renovating the facility. At first I thought that this was not going to work as my husband is a dementia patient. But I was pleasantly surprised at how organized they were. I thought that it would have been complete confusion for the patients . But it was not. The staff was wonderful with the patients. That really impressed me.

Rethink your decision

My loved one's were residents at Senior Commons at Powder Mill for a little over 2 months. During that period I made numerous complaints about them not giving linens and showers. They said they gave showers that day, but when I went to their room they were in the same clothes that they had on 3+ days before that! My loved one was left in pajamas for seven straight days. Even after complaining to the head of the facility, nothing changed. He wanted to know what I would do! That's why I removed my loved one's from Senior Commons at Powder Mill and will not recommend them to anyone.
