  • A great place for retirement

    We chose this facility because of the price. The room sizes are perfect, my parents are in a room together. They have a very spacious bathroom. IO have not eaten here but my parents have said the food is really good. My favorite part about this community has been the fact that my parents are no longer alone. They have people around them all the time. I would absolutely recommend The Dorchester South

  • Nice p lace, but check your bill carefylly.

    My mother lived at the Dorchester for 2 years. The facility and apartments were clean and pleasant. The maintenance staff is awesome! The staff in general is great, friendly, , etc. The food was good but is not offered enough. Weekends consist of sandwiches only at lunch; No dinner. Often on Holidays, the dining room only offered sandwiches as well. The Dorchester is for INDEPENDENT residents. If they can cook for themselves and they are not interested in activities, etc, it is great. There are some activities but there is not much effort to engage new residents. Note: if the resident should fall or be injured, they can not assist in ANY way. They have to call 911. They will go check on a resident if there is a concern, but they can't help them up if they fall, for example. If your loved one might need any assistance, independent living is not suitable. My difficulty was the billing. I am not referring to the prices, which I thought were very reasonable, but the accuracy of the bill. You need to review each month's bill carefully! We had charges for things we didn't use or incur. Getting them corrected was impossible. ( I am not referring to dining charges). Mom had to move to assisted living. Two charges that I was told would be corrected were not. Very frustrating!
