I toured Somerset; [name remofved] was great but the building was too dark/gloomy for me. Not my choice!

Can't turn the AC/Heat on when needed

If you plan on living here just realize when the weather changes they will not be able to turn the heat or AC on until they feel like it. If it is spring and the weather is 90 degrees outside you have to deal with it, with absolutely NO AC. If it is fall and it is cold outside, like 30 degrees you HAVE to deal with it. NO HEAT whatsoever. In fact they don't mind the elderly suffering, not being able to use their stove during the day, not being able to sleep at night, and even sweating just sitting there so you have to change your clothes twice a day because it is too hot. Their reasoning, "It's only a few days" of torture. The elderly have lived so long that they can deal with torture for a few days I guess. The liability of this is not enough to worry them, in fact, they think it is perfectly normal, even during a PANDEMIC, when you can barely leave your apartment, to keep your room at 90 degrees since it is "too much work" to switch it from AC to HEAT or vice versa.... YIKES!

Great value

We chose this facility because of the affordability, the location because it convenient to doctors appointments and grocery shopping, and they had availability. The only downside of Somerset is that the building itself is dated, it needs some TLC. They do also provide a bus service that takes him to and from errands. One of the things I would want people to know is to ask if you want or need something for your apartment, they are very accommodating. I would recommend to others looking.

My families experience

This community did not enforce mask wearing outside of the residents rooms during COVID, this community did a terrible job during the pandemic. They had a lack of attention to maintenance needs. Our loved ones furnace went out of week during the dead of winter. We had to continuously call them and they finally told us that it was never going to fully work. We would ask for them to do things while she was there, and unless we did them ourselves things would never get done. The management was pretty much absent aside from the front desk receptionist. The lack of communication was horrible.

Review of Sommerset Retirement Community

I have lived in apartments for most of my 50 years in D.C area. Sommerset is by far the best apartment housing I have experienced. The office staff and maintenance staff either anticipate your needs or are very quick to resolve my issues or concerns. The staff of the on-site restaurant are more efficient than anyone could imagine. The building and grounds are always wellmaintained. It is "my home", not "my apt".

Review of Sommerset Retirement Community

I am 92 years old... Lived in a beautiful one bedroom delux apartment... but as time passed and the weight of century slowed me down, the walls started closing in on me and I decided that I needed more space... I prayed about it, asked the Lord for guidance, then I started my search. I was given 5 places to view and the only one that offered me what I wanted was Sommerset... It offered me exactly what I wanted. Tha place is beautiful and the service rendered is outstanding. This place gives me something to brag about.

Review of Sommerset Retirement Community

[date removed] was my 4th anniversary at Sommerset. This independent living residence is truly independent, but with the feel like home. The staff, from managing office workers to maintenance folk, are all very nice people. There is no hostility among the entire staff. Services are done on time and orderly. Sommerset prides itself as a residence, but truly feels like home. I have referred Smmerset to several acquaintances When it's time for them to move, I hope they choose Sommerset.

Review of Sommerset Retirement Community

My mom has lived at this retirment home for 6 years and enjoys it everyday. She likes the balcony and atrium section with outdoor plants that no one wants in their rooms. She enjoys the residents' free bus service, which takes them shopping, dining out, entertainment, doctor appointments, etc. Beauty shop is available two days a week, library outreach once a week, church group gatherings once a week from outside church communities. Her daily jigsaw puzzles in the atrium is most enjoyable and relaxing.

Review of Sommerset Retirement Community

I have lived at Sommerset for two years. I have been very pleased with everything they have to offer. They have a bus service that will take you to doctor appointments, grocery shopping, day trips and mall shopping. The employees in the office are always very helpful if you need anything. We have live entertainment and various events during the year which is also taken care of by the employees in the office. I am also pleased with the housekeeping service. They do a great job.
