  • Overall good place for a loved one

    Somerford House community is a little more on the expensive side. We are a little disappointed in the care service at the moment, since we aren't able to go into the facility and see him to make sure he is getting care for. Before COVID the food looked adequate, he has yet to complain. The rooms are adequate in size as well.

    The place always looked clean. The staff could have improved a little on the attentiveness to the residents. My mother had an independent caregiver and we think if that person wasn't there, her needs wouldn't have been completely met. When we were able to get them to pay closer attention to things, they did just fine. They were good about engaging the residents in activities. We did feel the community was a good value for the price.
