Value for cost
I would recommend this community. They have activities like excursions to local sites, places to eat, historical sites, and nature adventures. They also have games like trivia and word games to keep the residents busy.
We like the staff's attentiveness to us, the value for cost is good and the location is convenient to us.
My loved one likes to participate in chair yoga. This community is in a great location. The people seem to be pretty nice and it is really cute.
The overall atmosphere of Sentry Hill really stood out to our family, it seemed much more welcoming than the other facilities we had looked at. We would recommend this community to others and have already recommend it.
My husband [name removed] and I met with Beth Verity today at 2:30 to discuss the possibility of my dad moving here. It was very informative and we liked the beautiful facility and friendly staff. We learned that Maine makes it easy to transition from private pay to Maine's Medicaid program. I was told that New Hampshire would not allow my dad to apply for Medicaid in their state because he would be coming from massachusetts. So now I think it's wiser for me to place dad in a Maine facility. Sentry Hill is less than 10 minutes from my house and I am frequently in that area, so it would be very convenient for me. I am visiting Evolve at Rye (in New Hampshire) tomorrow, so I will compare it with today's visit to Sentry Hill but I am thinking it's better for dad to come to Maine.
We chose Sentry Hill at York Harbor because I just liked what they had to say and offer during the tour. We we really in need of getting our loved one placed and they worked with us quickly and were great to her. Overall, we had a good experience and would recommend.
Due to COVID we have not been able to move into this community, however the staff has been very accommodating and informative when helping schedule a tour for us. We were able to meet with the administrative director and they were super friendly and very professional. This community is average priced when we compared it to other communities in the surrounding area. The overall layout of this community is very good. They have a variety of rooms for the residents to choose from, ranging in size from 900 sq ft. to 1200 sq ft.
Sentry Hill is a beautiful place. Staff seems friendly and competent; information gathered in the tour was complete and informative.
This was a nice and clean community. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The residents were very friendly and seemed so happy. We would have chosen this community had it been closer to our family members.
We are very pleased with this community, and everything they have done for us. My mother is enjoyed her time so much during her respite stay, that she has decided to move here. I feel a lot better knowing she is safe, and in good hands at this community. The staff is wonderful. This is a community that I would highly recommend.
Sentry hill is fabulous! Mom is so happy It is clean Employees kind and helpful
Had tour in 2012. Love the in-town location near the water. Superb transition from Assisted Living to Medicaid. Only one unit seems to be in my price range. Publicity deceptive.
Clearly, the focus here is attention to everyone personally and with genuine intentions to help. The facility is wonderful and serene. Very peaceful.
Finding Sentry Hill for my mom was a huge relief. From the minute you step on the well manicured property and then inside the welcoming lobby layout your expectations soar. And once you meet staff members and managers, you can't help but feel Sentry Hill is professionally organized and run primarily for the benefit of the residents. I know from the beginning the food has been a hit with my mom and she is receiving the level of care and support my brothers and I had hoped for. Rod Ford-Smith
My mom has only been there a month so it may be too soon to tell, but so far here are my thoughts. I don't really understand their system. We put her there on doctors orders. Very expensive, and has only gone up. They charge more to help my mom find her way around. What assisted living means to them and what we thought we were getting are not the same.
Dick liked and was impressed with Mary Ellen Dunham at Sentry Hill.On the other hand I felt that she was doing this tour because her colleague had to be away and was not too happy about it. The interview/ tour lasted 40 to 45 minutes. She avoided answering any questions I asked about the cost of day care in the memory unit or the price of the different apartments. Stated she would address that later. We were shown the memory unit and the garden as well as a generalized tour of the facility. We did not meet any other staff members or residents. M.E. was pleasant, but 'too professional' for me. Sentry Hill is an impressive facility. We were not invited to lunch. Our appointment was at 11:00am. We did not look at any cottages as I felt they were beyond our price range.
It's been wonderful. The staff is very friendly, and they keep it very clean. My loved ones love the food. We liked the location, and the fact that they were pet friendly. I would strongly recommend it, everyone from the beginning to the staff now has been great.
Overall, good. My sister has been there a little over a month and is "settling in". The staff is kind, and happy. They are open to suggestions. My only wish would be that they try to engage her more in more activities. They offer, she says "No thank you" and that seems to be the end of their efforts. I know they can't force her to do things but I am concerned that she spends too much of her day isolated in her room. She has been a very gregarious person most of her life and it is sad to see her this way.
Nice Place - Decent One Bedroom - need to get a large on with a view. Concerned about changes in life forcing changes in apartment. Want to make sure that he can stay in the same unit until he needs a memory care situation.
Wonderful place, clean and very friendly. Outreach coordinator was the best!
