A great fit

We chose Dorchester South because it offered a lot for what you have to pay and the location. The rooms are pretty good sized, they do have huge bathrooms. Perfect for one or two people. I have eaten here a couple times and the food was really good. Overall, I would absolutely recommend and have several times

A Place To Look At

It is a nice community. It will be better when the pandemic is over. The community is very friendly, nice, and accommodating. If you walk through the front doors, there is always somebody to greet you. The food is good, but can be expensive at times.

My review of the Dorchester South

We chose The Dorchester South because they had an apartment that was income sensitive. The apartment she is in is smaller, but it is for the value of the price. She said the food is pretty good for the most part, but sometimes they do put a little too much salt. My favorite part about the facility is the activities. Some of those include bingo, exercise classes, events for the holidays, etc. I also love that they have a 24/7 front desk person, so someone is available at all times if we need anything. The only downside is that they don't have shuttles available to medical appointments.
