Reviews of The Dorchester South

  • Very nice place. Lovely environment. I could definitely see my parents living here. It felt safe and well taken care of.

    The Dorchester is a fine place for seniors who want a community that is filled with activities. There are places to go, things to see and continous activities, all day, every day.

  • The apartments are older and less spacious than the Manor. Nice list of a la carte services.
