My mom recently moved to the Gardens of Wakefield. This is a wonderful facility. The staff and management are very caring and they are always having a lot of activities for the residents. I would highly recommend this facility to all who are looking for the best community for their parents.
The overall experience has been wonderful. The staff have been patient, kind, compassionate and attentive. We are delighted with our decision for Mom to become a part of this warm and welcoming community.
Response from The Gardens at WakefieldAugust 4, 2021
Hi Alison, thank you for your review! We are pleased to hear that your mother is a resident at our community and that she is happy in her new home. Our goal is to have happy residents and family members so your feedback is very important. If there is ever anything that we can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact the community directly! Thank you.
The bottom line is that Mom is very happy with her decision to move into The Gardens at Wakefield. She is making new friends, the staff is attentive and helpful, facilities are well maintained, and the general manager is highly visible and eager to get to know each resident.
My Mom has recently moved to the Gardens at Wakefield and the experience has been excellent. The process of touring, moving and getting settled was painless. She is enjoying the 2 bed room apartment and all the amenities. She has met very friendly folks and all the residents and staff are super helpful. Couldn't ask for a better experience!
We toured this facility and I was not happy with the general manager. She seemed more concerned with issues we had at a previous facility and was talking down on them. The hallways were dark and not very wide. The fire doors had thresholds on them which I thought was a tripping hazard. It seemed more like a 55+ community and was just not going to be a good fit.
Making the transition into a senior living environment is a life-changing move. At the Gardens at Wakefield all staff members were friendly and supportive to make the change as pleasant and as stress-free as possible for my loved one. Any and all questions or issues were immediately resolved, with all staff members showing exemplary care and concern for the resident's happiness and well-being.
Would highly recommend The Gardens at Wakefield. They go above and beyond making sure the residents are well taken care of.
This place is ideal for a retirement communtiy
My Mother has lived in her apartment for 2 months now. She is so happy with everything but the meals. For example one night for dinner they had beans and franks! Senior meals should be a healthy meal because they are older and need to watch there sodium. Stop with so much processed foods and cook a meal with simple ingredients. As for activities, care services, staff, and cleanliness all are wonderful. Everyone my Mother comes in contact with has been noting but kind and understanding! That means the world to my family. She feels secure, comfortable and worry free in her apartment. Thank you for making her stay amazing !
Everyone is friendly loving and so respectful!
The Gardens is an absolutely amazing place. Our only regret is that we didn't move Gram in sooner, as she has felt right at home since literally day 1. The staff are amazing, and truly care about the residents, always going above and beyond to ensure she is happy...including fixing the TV remotes more times than I can count. We are looking forward to springtime when she can really enjoy the gardens outside and use the raised beds to pursue one of her favorite pastimes - gardening! Thank you to the staff for providing a home for her with lots of activities to keep her busy, and pretty much everything she needs right there.
Both my Mom and Mother-In law Live here; they are both happy and like the Gardens very much. The staff is very friendly, kind and considerate .
My mom decided recently to move to an independent living situation. Having no experience or knowledge about such facilities, we reached out to a couple of places and thankfully found The Gardens at Wakefield! From my first phone conversation with [name removed], I felt that we were on the right track and my instincts have since been confirmed over and over again. Both [names removed] made the entire process of visiting to moving in so easy and since Mom moved in, they have both gone above and beyond to ensure that she is happy and becoming integrated into the community. She feels very much at home with all of the new friends she has made and how welcoming all of the staff have been. She is enjoying the activities as well as the food and is very happy with her new situation!
My mother called The Gardens her home for two years and we couldn't have been happier with the community. A very caring, helpful group of people from top to bottom. Safe, clean, very comfortable. Thanks [name removed] for everything...
Staff deserves a 5 star rating, especially [names removed]. They know their residents very well and really care about them. The place itself is dated and needs renovated and the food served is just average/nothing fancy.
The staff is friendly and attentive to all residents
I've visited the community several times. The staff is wonderful. The residents always seem so happy. Lots of activities for the residents. Great location.
We chose The Gardens at Wakefield because of the location of the facility as well as the fact the apartments included cooking appliances so you can cook your own meals. The room sizes here are excellent. The best part about the community so far has been the friendliness of the staff members and their willingness to work with you. I would recommend.
The Gardens feels more like a home than a typical senior living establishment. It's warm and inviting.
My Mom has been at the Gardens at Wakefield for almost three years now. We have been super happy with the entire experience. The staff is outstanding and treat my Mom like family. She enjoys the activities and has made many friends. Mom and I are now the Librarian and Assistant Librarian (Guess which one I am). She loves feeling like she is giving back to the community that has welcomed her. During Covid 19, I feel that the Gardens at Wakefield, especially [name removed], have gone way above their duties to ensure that each resident is safe and cared for. My Mom will say frequently that the move to the Gardens at Wakefield was the best decision she has made.
