A picture of the place

Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains near the source of the Potomac River, The Kensington stands as proud testament to Cumberland's storied past.

When it opened in 1926, the Algonquin Hotel was well known for its elegance and hospitality. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, it's just as accommodating as The Kensington -- a beautiful home for seniors since 1989.

The building's high-vaulted ceilings, marble floors, plush carpets and comfortable furniture create a welcoming entry. An adjacent lounge offers a scenic view of Wills Creek and historic downtown Cumberland. The family room has complete kitchen facilities for entertaining, as well as a large-screen TV.

New families are welcomed with a special dinner and introduced to the Heart to Heart interactive program. Family Traditions events are planned throughout the year, such as the annual pet show and 'Deck the Halls' Christmas Party. Regular seminars are offered on a variety of topics.

These and other family services provide fellowship and support, as well as special occasions for loved ones to share good times together.

Residents enjoy picnics on the patio, Bible studies, exercise classes, dancing, and their very own chapter of the Red Hat Society. Helping at the hospital or reading to school children enable resident volunteers to feel good about themselves.

I would recommend The Kensington to anybody

We chose the Kensington Senior Living at Cumberland because my dad is from this area and he had always said he wanted to go to a facility close by. After looking at some close to where I live, this was a far better situation. The room sizes here were very nice. The food here was also very good, they were good, home cooked meals. He absolutely loved it. My favorite part about the community was that they were all very friendly, it was like a big family. They got great care and attention. I would recommend to anybody.

We love this facility so far. Mom was just moved in 2 days ago and she is very happy here. [Removed] is a pleasure to work with and so far we are very happy with the care. Mom says "they are so nice here and take good care of you". Thats what we like to hear.

Lovely Meals!!

My mom has recently moved into this community and so far we have had no complaints. She has really enjoyed the meals that they serve as well as the dinning experience. I like that she is now slowly starting to get involved in some of the activities that they have to offer all of there residents. I would recommend this place to anyone interested in an assisted living.
