All the Comforts of Home

I would highly recommend this community. Compared to other communities in the area for the price. The staff are always friendly, and always interacting with residents and families. They have made an exception for me to come in and see my loved one due to them being on hospice. I've been given a COVID test and answer questions. This has allowed me to spend time with my loved one daily.

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.

Somerford House & Place Newark

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.
