Great experience for my dad

My father was a resident at The Gables at Winchester and most everything was great. He felt taken care of at this facility. His only complaint was the food, he would complain that it was too bland and repetitive and needed to have more variety. I would give The Gables a high reference, I would recommend them to family and friends.

Anonymous, I am the Regional Director of Operations and want to thank you for bringing your concerns to my attention. As we have communicated with our residents and their families the safety, health and well-being of our residents and team members remains our highest priority. Consistent with recommendations of and directives by federal, state and local regulatory agencies, we have implemented a number of precautionary measures specifically tailored to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. This includes strict guidelines in place prohibiting all non-essential visitors from entering our communities. For residents that need supplies, and are unable to have families drop them off, we encourage families to explore services like Instacart to deliver groceries. If that is not possible we are doing our best to provide them from our kitchens, or will have a staff member pick up what is needed. Please contact either myself or the Executive Director so we can make sure that your loved one's needs are being met. You can reach me by contacting the community and asking to be put in touch with the RDO. Best wishes -- Karl.

Love the Gables

My mom just recently moved into the Gables, and from start to finish it was a seamless experience. The atmosphere is warm, congenial and inviting, while the staff makes sure that the community’s needs are met. Even though my mom’s move was at a difficult time during the nation’s outbreak of the Corona virus, the staff has gone out of their way to make sure of the well-being and safety of all. Our interaction with [name removed], the director of the Gables, has been most pleasant. She has been warm, sincere, and genuinely caring not only to my mom but also to me and my husband. We made the wisest decision to have my mom move into the Gables. I highly recommend the Gables.

Exceptional Service

The Gables at Winchester went above and beyond to provide a wonderful experience for my family. My mother-in-law was a resident here. We looked at 4-5 properties, but finally chose this one. The staff was friendly, the food was good, and there was a physical therapy room where she could receive her much needed PT. Everyone on staff was always kind and attentive, especially toward my mother-in-law; they went out of their way to ensure that she was comfortable and enjoying her time there. Unfortunately, she had some health issues and passed away earlier than expected. The staff members, including the administration, were amazing and supportive of our entire family. They treated my family with respect, and were very good to us during such a difficult time. We more than appreciate the attentiveness that the Gables' staff provided. Their commitment to their clients (whom they treated like family), and the care taken to provide such a consistently positive experience was remarkable. Thank you! [Removed]

I would recommend The Gables with no reservations!!!

This is our first experience with a community and The Gables is a great place. My mom is settling in well and the staff are very friendly, accommodating and helpful. She is on a restricted diet so she would say the food was bland. They offer a variety of activities, however she has not yet participated in any of them.

We highly recommend the Gables

I cannot say enough nice things about this facility. My Mom has lived here about a year and is really happy. The people are friendly, the food is good and the staff is stellar. She enjoys the activities and has made some good friends. She got to keep her car and is encouraged to be as independent as she can be. But if she needs extra help at all it's available. The residents here are more alert and active than most facilities I visited in my search. I highly recommend the Gables for anyone looking.

Gables staff are welcoming

I had looked at several assisted living communities in the greater Boston area before deciding on the Gables. The location is convenient. The grounds are well maintained and cheerful. Above all, the entire staff is truly "5 -Star". The nursing staff are helpful and approachable and the folks that man ther front desk are knowledgeable, kind, and patient. I highly recommend the Gables community to anyone exploring assisted living communities in the greater Boston area. My mother and aunt both live there and truly, the staff truly make the Gables a positive living experience for the residents as well as for the family !
