A great value and a very caring community

The common areas at The Residence at Melrose Station always look clean, especially when comparing to other senior living communities. The staff is very friendly. I am impressed that every time I call in, they know exactly who I am. The department heads are often the ones who answer my questions, which is very reassuring. Similarly, the care being provided is great. During the Covid-19 pandemic, they have really stepped up to protect the residents and are doing much more than they usually do for no added cost. Compared to other communities in the area, we believe The Residence at Melrose is a great value. The only negative about the price is that they charge a flat fee per care level, rather than per service. While they do offer great activities, the physical location where they take place tends to be a little inaccessible to those who are less mobile. If they could hold activities on each level of the community, it would make it a lot more accessible to everyone.

It's like a Resort

I really can't give enough Stars for how good this place is! My Aunt [name removed] has been there since May and her life is so much better now, from the food to the staff, accommodations and more. She has her independence and we don't have to worry about her. From the little things like making sure she takes her medicine to exercise classes. She has met new friends and is so busy every day. I suggest going for a look see if you have an aging family member. Outstanding care!

Best move ever

Moving my independent, yet lonely mom from her home at the age of ninety was very difficult for her. As it should be. After two days of living in the Residence at Melrose she said, " this is the best thing ever suggested to me" She is correct. From the staff, who are always smiling and saying hello, to the care services, who are always there to help 100% of the time (day or night. Not one person can do enough for each residence. I am visiting my mom at least twice a week, at all different times. I have seen how calm the entire community of workers are during a possible crisis or problem. Large or small, they continue to impress me with their person care for each individual. If you are interested, take a tour, sample a meal, sit and observe the social activities of the wonderful community. It is not just a place to sleep, it truly is a home for each person living here.
