Review for Standish Village

Very disappointed in Standish Village. My brother did not stay. The meals were good but that is all. The sales team should be more open and forthcoming about the things they will do and what they will not do. I would say to choose another place. We chose it because I thought it would be a great place for my brother.

We chose this facility mainly because when I met with them, I was impressed by the staff and the dining experience as well. The location is also very convenient to where I live so that works out great for me. My mother loves that executive director brings her dog in, it gives it that homey feel. She made friends pretty quickly. Other residents are very welcoming and that was one of my biggest concerns coming into this, it hasn't been an issue at all. The architecture is very unique and the apartment itself is very nice. All of the rooms are unique, she loves having the big windows with the natural light coming in. I would recommend Standish Village to others looking.

Tour of Standish Village

We toured Standish Village during the height of Covid and things were very tight. They followed protocols, they took our temperatures, and we had to answer all of the Covid related questions. I thought that was a good thing and I didn't mind it at all, because that meant they would lower the chances of any residents catching Covid due to their screening process. The community was very nice and the people were friendly. Standish is located close to my loved ones family and friends. It was also a bit more expensive than her budget and what she pays at the community she's at now. My friend was going to move in, but Standish requires that you take a TB test. She got the first part done, but didn't cooperate or return for the reading of the test. We chose a new community because my friend never completed the test, but everything worked out for her at the other community. But Standish was a very nice place.

Thank you so much for writing us a review; your feedback is much appreciated! We do our best to give visitors a great experience, so that they can see how their loved one could thrive here. Our Compass Memory Support Neighborhood is intentionally small-scaled to offer an intimate and nurturing homelike environment, which bolsters residents' confidence.

The facility is beautiful, the staff is very friendly and they communicate very well. However, they could improve on their orientation schedule for those who have mild dementia. Not for the memory care unit, but for regular assisted living.

[Removed]

At first we thought my Mom was happy here then as she needed more assistance Aides began taking advantage and [Removed] her. I witnessed first hand three separate Aides giving my elderly her fallen pills from the floor. When two of the Aides were confronting me and when I reported this to top Administration at the location, I was thanked for pointing this out because there is not a written rule to not give pills off the floor! So they have Aides attend a handwashing in service but they need a written rule for not giving pills off the floor?! Absolutely disgusting! At the end of my Mom's stay she said she felt the Aides did not care. Really sad.

When this incident occurred two years ago, ?we took immediate steps to retrain our staff in our policies and procedures regarding our medication management service. We do indeed have a written procedure for handling a situation when ?residents or staff inadvertently drop a pill ?on the floor. Our medication management service is called SAMM (self administered medication management), which means that our resident care aides hand residents their medications, along with a glass of water, and the residents take their pills themselves. When pills are dropped by an aid or a resident, residents then have the ?option to ?be given new medications. I am disturbed and? sorry that your Mom felt that ?any member of our staff was uncaring.? This is what causes me the most angst about your review. We try very hard to hire only the best - people who have compassion for the elderly and treat them with dignity and respect at all times. We provide continuous training for our staff in every department at our communities to make sure they are upholding our Right Values which puts Resident Quality of Life as our number one priority. I would hate to think that any resident in any community would not feel completely supported, appreciated and valued. I will personally revisit this with the staff who took care of your Mom two years ago. Please feel free to contact me directly if you wish to discuss this privately. -Robert Larkin, President, Senior Living Residences [removed]

We have had some kind caregivers for our family member over the last few years. The current director [Removed] is very difficult to work with. We have found her to be rigid and at times unprofessional. She has made a very difficult situation so much more stressful and overwhelming. Not a good fit for us.

Thank you for taking the time to review our community. I appreciate that you mentioned the kind caregivers you have encountered at Standish Village. The wellness team at Standish Village from our Resident Care Director to the wellness nurses and our wonderful group of resident care associates try their best to provide great care and supportive services to residents. We aren’t perfect, but that’s what we strive for. ?I am, however, so sorry that you have not had the same experience working with the community's director.?

This community was not what I expected!

The administrative staff could improve on their bedside manner. We have had numerous disagreements about the care of my loved one. They seem unprofessional and that it is more about money than the residents. The caregivers that work with my loved one are great. The community is beautiful. They offer a lot of wonderful things. I would move in if I could

Nice looking place!

I toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. The facility was well kept and clean, and all of the staff I met seemed friendly and professional. However, I don't think this felt quite as "homey" as some others that we toured. We ended up selecting another community, but this is somewhere I would have considered as an option for my loved one.

Standish Village is Home.

My parents recently moved to Standish Village which I can say is the very best thing that could have happened. They have a lovely apartment with bright windows that was completely renovated....lovely facility and gardens.However, As wonderful as the apartment is-It is the wonderful staff that welcomed them in and has made them feel as though they have been there a very long time. Their kindness, respect and care is superior from Matt the resident director, Shari director in Memory care services, Roy, Katie, Suzie all the nursing aides....Anthony the chef and ALL we come in contact with. Standish (Shari) recently planned an occasion to celebrate my parents 60 th anniversary and had a ceremony, wedding cake, champagne and all things celebratory to make this a smashing Event and wonderful memory.We have been so touched by this wonderful community and can NOT say enough good about Standish Village. Lots to do, many activities and trips,much support, great location, access to medical care locally,and great communication with family members. My parents feel at Home, truly. Check them out for traditional and memory care excellence. PS. The food is great too!!

May not be right for him

I think this may not be the best place for him, it comes down to cost and there aren't a lot of other different options for him. It's near transportation, Lower Mills I think is a fine area, I just think the age population is not right for him, they're much older than he is so I don't know if there's any place where he'll feel comfortable. He does try, they're very friendly and he has connected with some. I think they're caring people there, but he needs help they can't give him. The location is good, it's next door to a place he worked out in every morning, it's right around the corner so that was good for him. I think the biggest thing is fitting in with the other residents. There was some question about whether Standish was following through on the activities they said they were going to do, but I don't live there so I don't know.
