me areas for improvement, but would recommend overal
Most of the staff is friendly, but some really aren't. Perhaps a rating of a 4 is more appropriate. The physical therapy team is fantastic. Quality of care - I gave a rating of a 3 as they are sometimes late bringing meds, which is simply unacceptable. Some caregivers were rough with assisting with dressing and showering. The management team seems sincerely interested in improving which is a plus. Meals - food seems mediocre at best as I've heard comments from several residents. Appears to be served cold on a pretty regular basis. Simple things like ice, ketchup, and jelly not always available.

I don’t have a lot of experience with this facility as I only come on the weekend to visit. Tha facility is clean. Crystal the front desk person and lead activity director on the weekends are both great women! They are involved with the residents and like to see them having fun. I would suggest that a microphone be used during activities as it is difficult for residents with hearing isssues to hear and able to participate.

Amazing
I was very concerned about my 93 year old mom going into a nursing home, but she needed it for the past 5 years and refused to talk about it. She fell and dislocated her shoulder and broke a few ribs and was in rehab during COVID pandemic. I ended up getting COVID-19 and was supposed to pass away, but after 6 days on ventilator, survived with long COVID. My sister in law had to step in as co-legal medical decision maker. I have a care giver of my own now and can't take care of mom. Luckily, we found Somerfor Place and House. She went into Place and I never had to worry about her falling down the stairs, alone, in her house. I can't say enough good things about the staff and building. It was like being in someone's home. Carpets and drywall, no cinder blocks or linoleum. What a gorgeous place to live. And now that her dementia has progressed, they transitioned her to House with limar staff and patients. This place is awesome. I would go there.

Somerford House
Some of the staff has been mean and demanding make my mom go to bed or stay in bed. Some of them rush her to go to bed, get dressed or finish going to the bathroom and there isn't enough waiters so they wait for an hour to get any food not to mention they don't bring the right foods and won't correct it forcing patients to eat what they don't like or want. My mom says the menus is very repedative and not very appetizing. Ibe morning there was no coffee needless to say I called the director to complain and the next morning they had Duncan Donuts coffee. I actually bought my mom an ice machine for her room because you would have to move heaven and hell to get some! There are staff members who are not like that and are caring too but there shouldn't be any of the negative because she is paying for it!!!

Would not recommend for higher level of care. Okay for someone who needs only a little assistance.
We did not end on a good note. It was fine until my loved one needed more care than they expected. And I've heard from others as well to expect to be discharged rather abruptly when their circumstances change and to make sure to stay on top of the care they are being given. The staff was kind enough, but definitely not equipped to handle the care they told us they were capable of. I would not recommend them for higher level of care, but okay for someone who can take care of themselves with little assistance and is just looking for a lower maintenance and more social way of living.

Hi Lori. I am the Executive Director and would welcome the chance to chat with you when you have some time to talk. When one of our residents needs a higher level of care than we can provide it is our responsibility to partner with the family to find the best placement for their loved one. I would like to chat with you about your experience with that process and understand what we can do better to make this sometimes challenging process go as smoothly as possible. Thanks in advance for your input, and I hope we get a chance to talk soon.

Generally happy
Some of the nurses aids we really like and are sweet as can be and some of them we do not care for at all and don't seem to care for the residents. They have had quite a bit of turnover of staff, they just hired a new administrator and they lost the activities director that everyone really liked. The food is good, lunch is the main menu and dinner is something a little lighter. The have a new vendor coming in the beginning of the year and it is supposed to be gourmet. They do have happy hours on Fridays and she also likes to play bingo.

I'm Grateful and Hopeful of Safety for My Loved One, During a Crazy Time
My experiences are based during the pandemic. Pauline and I have been able to have great interactions. She calls regularly about my mom. The community sends an email to the family with updates and a monthly calendar of activities.

Christy, thanks for your feedback. It was good to hear that Pauline is doing a great job in keeping you up-to-date regarding your mom, and that the regular emails are doing their job of letting you know what's happening in the community. It is always great to hear from families that they feel connected to the community even when they might not be able to physically be there.

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 Delaware 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 Delaware regulations for Assisted Living.

A Place for Mom has scored Somerford House and Place of Newark 8.7 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

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.
