Highly recommend

We have had a great experience so far with Suffield by the River. We chose this facility because it was recommended to us and after meeting with the staff here we felt very comfortable. Their personalities really drew us in and they make the residents feel like family. The room sizes here are very good, they are more like apartments. The food here is OUTSTANDING, they are chef prepared meals and the chefs are always asking for residents feedback and cater to their needs. I would highly recommend the community.

Mom's doing great here

I am very pleased with the care that my mom is getting here. She has started to settle in well, she likes being part of the many activities they offer, she enjoys going to the dining room and the food and I have noticed just how friendly and attentive all the staff are here. They greet you when you're there to visit and they interact with all the residents so well. I would definitely recommend this community.

My loved one is happier now that they live someplace else.

My loved one did not have a good experience at this community. They are very short staffed. They treat people like they are numbers instead of treating them like they are human beings and this can cause a lot of harm to a person living in that environment. My loved one is happier now that they live someplace else.
