Comfortably nestled into the forested hills of Western Connecticut, The Hearth at Southbury offers multiple choices of care and living options for seniors.

An Unexpected Happy Place

The community has communicated very well with us and let us know about anything that has come up. It is a small community, but the staff knows our names. In recent days they have allowed us to see our loved one in the courtyard. They make you feel that you are not interrupting them at anytime. They have allowed Face Time or virtual visits to see our loved one, during the lock down.

The Hearth At Southbury

The times I have been there, the pace is clean and the staff are friendly. During the Covid-19 pandemic, they did a good job with keeping the residents safe. Overall, they are very good with keeping our family informed of my sisters care, which was important to us. They do seem to have a lot of activities available and my sister seems to enjoy them.

Review of The Hearth at Southbury

I toured at The Hearth at Southbury as well as many others. I know as soon as I walked in this was the place I wanted to move to when I was ready. As soon as I ended up in rehab I called The Hearth and said "do you have a place for me" they were so helpful and now I am in my new home and I love it. Everyone is so nice and helpful. I feel so relieved -thank you.

Lovely setting with friendly staff. We were given full attention and had all of our questions answered. The interior was cheerfully decorated. We witnessed happy, social residents enjoying happy hour and dinner.

Kindness and Caring at The Hearth at Southbury

My mother is a centenarian who has been at The Hearth for five plus years. I have been very impressed with the care and kindness of the staff at all levels. The nursing care is excellent and the aides who help her throughout the day and night are friendly and respectful. She has benefited from activities that provide mental and physical stimulation. They are very good about alerting me to any concerns and in finding solutions for any problems that develop.
