New Homestead —Safe & Caring

I can imagine how hard the process is to find a place for mom or another family member in the times we are in. I highly recommend the New Homestead as a very safe and caring placement in these difficult times. My mother lived at the New Homestead for the last five years of her life. I will be forever grateful for the care she received there. Mom was very well cared for and loved the place. As her needs changed over time the New Homestead was always creative and flexible in providing her with the appropriate continuum of care. New Homestead did an amazing job when Covid hit. They responded fast and with an ongoing diligence in protecting their residents. Mom was kept safe from Covid there in the heart of Queens - Kew Gardens. The New Homestead is a unique place in a great neighborhood where everything is within walking distance. Everything Mom needed was available at the New Homestead but we enjoyed walking around town or going to the parks near by when I visited. The building, a converted historical hotel is small compared to other adult facilities. It’s not overwhelming in size. It has a nice old fashioned homey feel and a really nice garden where she liked to watch the world go by. She had a beautiful private room and enjoyed the bright sunny dining room. She liked the food. The relationships and communication we developed with the staff was excellent. She lived so many good memories there. She had wonderful friends, great caretakers and great times. The activity director is excellent. When they could visit many community members were invited there; entertainers, musicians, school children, art therapists and various religious practitioners. Residents took fabulous day trips to cultural venues. Times do not permit these activities now but excellent care continues.

We would not recommend The Homestead community

The only staff member that was professional, helpful and knowledgeable was the receptionist, they were amazing. The other staff members would be a three out of five stars, we felt like at times they were very condescending. We did not have a good experience with this community. The food was not good, it was very dis-satisfying. Some of our loved ones clothes were stolen by other residents. We did not feel like we got our money's worth. The kitchen staff would be a one out of five stars, one day our loved one found a fly in his food. However, for his doctor appointments they were good about communicating to us what time his appointments were and when he was going to be picked up. The location is the only thing we liked about this community. It was in forest hill and it wasn't to far from where we lived.

A great caring place

My mother has been a resident for over 5 years now. I live abroad and they make it easy for me to make sure my mom is taken care of. They have honestly gone above and beyond during this Covid crisis. The owner [name removed] helped me advocate and come up with solutions to help her get discharged from the rehabilitation centre after recovering from Covid. It was nearly impossible to get someone in to talk to them with all the regulations. The staff at The Homestead are all lovely..Celeste the case manager is very caring and very honest. It’s clean, bright, friendly and they will try to help in any way.
