The Farrington is a great place for Mom. She moved here from Colorado and could not be happier. [name removed] and all of the staff were so helpful in this long distance move. The facilities are very nice and Mom loves watching the birds at the half dozen feeders in the garden area in the back. A full slate of activities rounds out the careful and caring manner in which the residents are treated. Give the Farrington the highest recommendation.
This community did not fit my loved ones' needs. There was heavy pressure from the sales team and it was very obnoxious.
We chose The Farrington at Tanglewood because we could not afford the previous facility and a friend suggested this facility and the location so I could visit often. Some of the staff here were not up to our standards and I had a very hard time getting people to call me back. We had a camera in his room and we were able to see everything going on. I did hear that the food was good a while ago, but it was not the best when my husband was here. The owner of the company was very good to me and listened to my concerns but overall, we did not have the best experience here.

Hi Susan, we are sorry to hear that your experience was not the best. We would like the opportunity to discuss some more of your concerns. Please contact us at [removed] at your earliest convenience.
My mother formerly lived in a very nice independent facility. It became obvious that her memory issues required greater assistance. We found the Farrington at Tanglewood (previously a Brookdale facility). From top to bottom, this is a very high quality senior community. The staff is very sensitive to each residents needs and helps us family members know to help our loved one. I sleep through the night knowing my 94 year old mom is at The Farrington.
Amazing. Even the front office people know all the resident's names. They are very hands on and caring.
Was impressed from the start. The staff and residents made me feel welcome and wanted. The unit iliked that is available has a nice east facing window overlooking the courtyard and gardens. All the assisted living residences and a tivity centers were all along the corridors for Easter of access. The food was fabulous.
Great option for loved one. Toured community and will be moving parent here next month. Great care and the food is delicious. Managers and staff are happy and very welcoming. Highly recommended despite a few negative reviews, I think The Farrington is the best option in the Tanglewood area.
I visited this facility yesterday and found the staff to be friendly. [Name removed] is the one that helped me, she gave me a tour and sat down to discuss costs with me. This facility is Type B, and might be a good fit for my dad. They had several nice touches such as appropriate activities sitting in cozy corners. I liked it and would consider. There were a few places that I thought could be a bit cleaner, however I only detected urine type smell one time. Not bad really.
Smelt of urine, carpets were very dirty.
This is a very nice assisted living and memory care option. The staff clearly are engaged with the residents. We spoke with the 'maintenance guy' and it is clear he is very passionate about the facility -- the way they treat their employees, as well as their residents. This is not exactly what we are looking for at this time, but should my parents be ready for assisted living without independent living, this would be a place of consideration.
This is a good assisted living option. Facility is new. Residents are grouped into specific 'houses'. The common areas are large and open, but in carpeted, so they are loud (not so great for people with hearing aides). Rooms are studio-type only -- where the bed and living area are all in the same room. Kitchen is part of the common area. This looks like a really nice place if you are looking for more 'attentive' senior living (assisted in nature).
I toured this community and as soon as I walked in I was ready to walk out. The odor when you walk in will knock you over almost. The staff was really nice and answered all of my questions. It is a older community and the lighting was bad. If they would do some refurbishing it would do wonders. Just not the place for my mom.
When I toured this community the staff was friendly and helpful. It was just to much of a nursing home feeling. Where people needed more care than my parents. They are still very independent. It was a nice community but we chose a different one.
We toured this community and likes the staff. The community was bigger than what we wanted for my sister. The staff was nice and they had a lot to offer. The menu had good meals and the activity would have been nice to see her participate. We would suggest that other familiar tour this community for the care of a loved one.
We had a pleasant tour of this community. Everything went well overall. The staff was kind, and helpful. It was not the community for us, but overall our tour went well.
This is a nice community for the care and comfort for a family member. The staff was nice and the community seemed to be clean. The menu looked appealing. We would suggest that other families tour this community for the care of a loved one. We wanted a big room
The staff is friendly and helpful. They make me feel very welcome and are easy for me to communicate with. They provide activities and try and get everyone to participate. I've had a stroke so I do not participate in all of the activities. I'm improving in my walking, and the staff is very good at motivating me to move more. So they could offer more variety in their menu. It is very bland, institutional type food. They provide snacks for the residents. It is very clean and they do a credible job. My room is like a hotel, it is exactly what I wanted, large and inviting and perfect for my needs. The community bus is available for trips into town to do shopping. I've been twice and feel very assured that I will always make it back to the community. They looked after me on my trips into town, I feel safe knowing they make sure I get back to the community.
The cost of this community seemed to be a little higher than other communities in the area. The people I met when I visited were nice. The community seemed clean. This community is in an area close to malls and to the bus line.
The director at this community was very friendly and I could have not picked a better person to give my loved one and I a tour. She was attentive to my questions and make sure to give us a detailed look at there facility. They had a beautiful property with lots of great amenities for the residents. It was just not the right location in the end decision.
My family member has been extremely unhappy since moving to tanglewood oaks. Care and food specifically have been awful. I've eaten once and you couldn't pay me money to eat there again and I had a fruit plate thinking no way could that be awful but I was very wrong. My family member who is living there feels that most of the issues are related to the administration and not staff. As much as the elderly resist change we are making a costly and very disruptive move. Think long and hard before placing a loved one at this facility.
