I would recommend it

We love that our mother is there, they are taking such great care of her which is most important. The staff are just wonderful and we have nothing back to say about them or the community itself.

Tour of The Enclave

Right when we walked in it just felt more institutionalized than some others we saw. The room sizes here are very big. They have a happy hour cart that comes around and I did not think that would be a good idea for memory care. It was not the right fit for us.

Another Sunny Day at the Enclave

I have already told people that I would highly recommend the community to others for their loved ones. The community has worked with us due to some circumstances in the beginning due to some rehab of my loved one. I wish there was another level of care between assisted living and memory care. It is an awesome community overall. The staff genuinely care about the residents. The communication is great with the staff. The are private pay; however, the community will help match up your loved one, if the time comes that you need that. The community celebrates the resident's birthdays, along with movie nights and more for activities.

COVID protocols in place. Mask required for visitors. Grounds very well kept. Small Community on a busy street. Not much outdoor space for residents to mingle. Observed the common room by front door was occupied by many residents. Very friendly. The tour hit the high points, puzzle areas, dining room wing for Memory Care, beauty salon. Transportation available to and from appointments. Financially comparable to others I have toured.

[name removed] sat with us and discussed my mothers situation and then we toured the facility. We met with the wellness director and discussed options going forward. After careful consideration we chose the enclave of Scarborough. Wonderful amenities fair price and a beautiful location.

Go anywhere else

Our brief time with the community was terrible, they did not clean our loved ones room like they were supposed to. They lack organization from the top down so they do have a good system for their residents. There is no consistency so the care services really lack.

Grateful for the Enclave

We chose The Enclave of Scarborough because it was convenient for location, they had a room available, and we didn't really check out any others. The room sizes here are great, beautifully set up and spacious. I have never eaten here but i have never heard any complaints and we have heard a lot about how wonderful the chocolate ice cream is. The best part about the community so far has been the management from the top creates a sense of warmth and community. Within the community, my loved one is in memory care and has made friends. I would recommend.

Daughters review of assisted living care for parents

This is a pretty expensive community, however our loved ones seem to be very happy. The responsiveness and communication we had with the staff members really stood out to us, especially the communication with the operations manager. Our loved ones seem to be very happy with their room, they say it is clean and spacious.

The Enclave Of Scarborough

The community seemed clean for the short time that my mother stayed there. The staff was also very friendly. We felt the staff should have contacted us sooner when they saw my mother was physically ill in the morning. I only discovered her condition when I went to see her later that day. We felt this to be the result of a lack of attentiveness. There were good with activities. We noticed the staff did encourage residents to participate in activities as a group to increase social interaction. Because my mother was only there for four days, we asked The Enclave for our community fee back and ended up having to go back and forth with the central office multiple times in order to get it refunded.

A comfortable smaller scale community that provides independence with care plus memory care if needed. They offer a variety of activities in the community and have weekly outing trips. The Enclave ‘s staff are friendly and knowledgeable of their residents and their needs.

My mom moved in a few months ago and I don’t think I’ve ever seen her so happy. The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. The facility is beautiful, well kept up and well laid out.

A well-managed and caring facility

I brought my Wife to live at Atria in Scarborough after the first of the year. She is 59 years old with early-onset alzheimer's. She was first diagnosed in 2012. It was a very difficult time but I could no longer find a care-giver to stay in our home when I had to travel for business and she requires full care. Fortunately, I had visited Atria several times in the previous month and brought my wife there for the activities so she would get to know the staff and they would get to know her. As difficult as this period of time has been, I have been 100% happy with the staff and facilities. They have a warm and caring environment. I still use this facility primarily for daycare....I bring her in the morning and pick her up at night after work, but she has her own room and stays there when I travel. She is well taken care of and she loves it. Finding great facilities such as Atria is very difficult since there is a lack of online ratings for all facilities, but my research and up-front planning was well rewarded and I couldn't be happier. I would also like to thank [Name removed], [Name removed] and [Name removed] for helping my wife and I through this process.

Too expensive for what you get

This location always has a sign outside to find help, a concern for any business and cautionary tale sign to me! Mom and I toured this location back just before they opened, so I know it is just too expensive for Mom to be able to sustain. My husband's Aunt was there for a time, but her family, much wealthier than the average family in Maine, found it too expensive once she needed to add more (and more) care services. The care never seemed adequate. What difference does it make to have "great" actives if the person in care can't or won't participate?

Your feedback is important to us, and please know that we take it seriously at Atria Scarborough. Will you share your contact information and name with me at [removed]? We would like to connect you with our leadership team to help you.

Talked with [name removed], did not do a tour, at this point the price would rule out this location. Though it is a true full service to end of life and bears consideration if others do not provide similar services in some manner. [name removed] was a good resource and did not dismiss me after the price discussion, but rather continued and had suggestions of other places to consider.

Unpleasant experience

I would not recommend this facility. I moved my mother into an apartment when they first opened a few years ago. I was told because her care changed and “she needs more care” she couldn’t stay. I wasn’t told why or what they could not provide. Overall the care isn’t great. She doesn’t need to be in a nursing home with that level of care, so it didn’t make sense to me what I was being told. She is now living at another assisted living and is much happier.

From the first time that I walked in I loved it. I find it that it’s the perfect place for my mother. I found out that she is a lot calmer now being there and everybody seems to love her. It’s been a good experience. The facility is beautiful, it’s clean, well kept, there is no odor, and it’s relatively a brand new facility (about a year old). The staff team is also very attentive toward my mother and they are interested in the details regarding her and her health. She gets along with the people there. Overall, it’s clean, nice, and friendly. I recommend.

We Are Comfortable With Dads Move Here

I'am very pleased with my fathers move to this community. It was tough adjustment at first, but now things have gotten better. My Senior Living ad visor from a place for mom was amazing. She was very helpful with all the information she provided me with. This is a great community. The only issue we came across is they can be pushy when it comes to having someone administrator his medication for him. He is able to do it his self. Other that that issue the community is always looks great whenever we visit. The meals are good. They are well balanced, and they have nice variety too choose from. There are good activities available for the residents. This is a community I would recommend overall, it is working out well for my family.

A wonderful community

I have eaten at this community and I think the food is good. They do have smaller portions, however the dining room is open all day. The staff are wonderful and attentive. They keep the community well taken care of. They offer daily activities. They have larger rooms with high ceilings and I would recommend this community.
