I thought they were very nice. In terms of the level of care I had to go with another community.
This felt too big for my loved one. The people were nice here.
The community has been wonderful, caring, and supportive. The director is superb. My loved one has received good care so far. The room is large and much better for my loved one that at another community. This is an older assisted living community. It is very nice here.
The people are really very kind and compassionate. They seem to know exactly who my loved one is, and they know who I am when I walk in the door. It's a very clean facility. They do have activities, as much as they can for people in cognitive decline, and the people who run the activities are very nice. All these types of places are very expensive, but compared to other places I looked at, Somerset Gardens is less money.
It has been really tough this year with covid but so far everything has been going good. When we do go see our loved we do bring him things and they get it to him right away and they are taking good care of him.
If you're loved one can't do a lot of walking, then this is not a good community for them. There is some distance between the rooms and common areas. The Home Health Aides were very helpful and nice. I feel that there wasn't enough of them, especially overnight. Excellent food service and activities for the residents.
When we first looked at Somserset Gardens it looked great, but I went everyday after work and on the weekends because they were understaffed. When I would go visit she would just be sitting in a chair not doing anything. She ended up getting up and falling and cracking her head open. They had some cases of COVID and residents were locked in their room and had to be sedated, so she was not getting fed enough. At night when they get them ready for bed, they don't really wash them. They take a wet towel and wipe their bottom half and that is it, no soap or anything. We did not have a good experience with Somerset Gardens.
We picked Somerset Gardens because of the care they were able to provide medically for my dad. The location was also nice, only 5 minutes from where I live. The overall staff was amazing, but the day before he passed away, the weekend staff during hospice were horrible, they were understaffed and didn't take care of the patients. He didn't participate in activities, but I remember they had an activity calendar in the hallway with a variety of different things to do. I would recommend this community.
They had just redone everything in the community and put down new hardwood floors that look very nice. The staff is all warm and friendly and my mother-in-law likes it there. They offer a lot in the way of activities, although she doesn't often participate. The food is excellent as well.
Overall, the facility is nice, the staff are friendly and kind, the community is close to my house, and I believe the staff are really trying. Financially, it's the biggest bang for your buck compared to other places we looked at. The staff are very receptive but the follow through isn't always there. They need to be more proactive. They need better communication with the families, especially now during COVID. There is a shortage of staff on the weekends.
The staff that I have spoken to are absolutely wonderful. The administration is also wonderful. They are very responsive. The executive director sends out a daily email with updates and notices. The communication and the staff are great and go above and beyond. We looked at other places and we were waiting for a sister community to open, so, my dad moved in here while waiting for it to be built. After living here for six months, he decided to stay and not move to the new building. My dad isn't happy with the food on most days, but I think they are doing a fine job.
At Somerset Gardens they really are caring for the individuals. My dad has a large studio which is a good size for him, it has worked out well since he is spending so much time in his unit with the quarantine. They have really been proactive during this Pandemic keeping residents safe and happy. They are keeping families updated with daily emails.
Facility was very nice very clean, The woman we met with was very professional, rooms were very nicely decorated and clean, many activities for residents, give
I liked the place a lot. [Name removed] was very helpful. I think my mother could be comfortable there. Drawbacks: Distance from apartments from dining areas. My mother would need a wheelchair to get around, which she does not currently use. Also, while the basic monthly cost of the facility is within our budget, when you add on the cost of extra levels of care it just about doubles the price.
Looked like it was a converted hotel because it is. Very friendly, but place had a feeking of being old. SLight odor as we walked around. Looked at a room and walked right into a spider web face high! Not worth another look
I toured at Somerset Gardens, and I really liked the community overall. [Removed] was the sweetest lady, and the community was lovely. My only issue was that they removed the carpeting in the community because of spills, accidents, etc., and now the place lacks a bit of the homey, comfortable feel I think it would have otherwise. As a result, it is left looking a little institutional.
This community was very nice. It was clean and well maintained. The staff that we met seemed friendly and nice very professional. However, the location of the property was much further than what I would have liked. I need mom close to me so we can visit as much as we would like
Things went well on our tour here, the staff were friendly and did a very good job showing us around the community and answering all our questions. My mom was only looking to come to the day care for a couple days a week for now so we felt it wasn't quite the fit for her.
My mother has recently made the move into this community and so far things are going well for her. The staff have been on top of things and have made sure to keep in communication about her needs and progress. They have welcomed her with open arms and I am comfortable with the care she is being provided with. Overall things have been going well and I would recommend it to anyone interested.
I understand that the rehab that is offered here is not as aggressive as other places offer but they could put a better effort. My mothers stay here was not pleasant. She would have constant urinary tract infections once she would come off the medicine she would get another one. The staff was friendly enough and the rehab was clean and maintained. But from seeing my mother who had made such improvement while she was at another rehab center then coming here and her decline so much just greatly overwhelmed me.
