Great so far. (3 weeks) My dad is 80, in great mental shape, but was having trouble with day-to-day activities because of balance. Additionally, he does not consider himself "old" and does not want to be around "old people." This was a great compromise. It's independent enough, but gives him the ability to get the help he needs for little things like cleaning and cooking. First, the restaurant is bright, cheerful--and a place he's proud to show off to his buddies. My dad can be pretty critical about food, but so far he's impressed. (A minor miracle!) His 1-bedroom apartment is clean, spacious and modern. It's no different (but probably a better value) than any high-rise in Edgewater. It makes going over a lot more pleasant for me. For him, with his modest nest egg and social security, he is not over burdened about price, though he will be dipping in ever month to cover the costs. There are smaller less expensive that we can move to if he becomes too concerned about finances. He also has access to nursing and physical therapy when he needs it., conveniently located in the building. Overall, while my Dad hasn't found his clique yet, and still feels a little restless and bored, I have seen him get back to his more usual moods and demeanor. Not sure what will happen if his mental or physical needs change, but for right now, I am extremely satisfied that this was a good decision emotionally, physically and financially for him.Reviewed on A Place For Mom
Spoke with [Removed]. Wonderful facility but too outgoing for my sister. Beautiful setting, dining area, close to beach, lots of activities, outgoing residents: my sister was solicited 2x by people wanting to know if she played mah Jong or scrabble. I would love it there; I'm not sure about Her.

Thank you for sharing your review of our community! While we are disappointed that we weren't the best fit for your sister, we are delighted that you enjoyed your visit with us!
I am writing on behalf of my parent who has moved into the Breakers. The apartment and the view is terrific. The activities are good as well. However, the dining situation is abysmal. Each day, there is a wait to be seated of at least an hour. That is just to be seated. It can take 30 minutes just to get the order taken by a server. Add another 40 minutes to be served cold food. The food is bland or mushy. This has been going on all summer. The dining area is understaffed and the management does not seem to be doing much about it. If not for the social aspect of taking the meal plan, I would certainly not recommend it.
