Not for younger residents with higher functioning dementia.

My loved one didn't last long here for personal reasons. I don't feel it was the right fit for her. Their dementia care was different than what we expected - it was more like assisted living. She needed more attention and companionship, and they don't have the staff to accommodate that. For the time that she was there, she wasn't really involved in any activities because the rest of the patients there were not at her functioning level, so there was no one for her to relate to. I just don't feel they accommodated her well at all. They were very nice. But it just wasn't the place for my mother. I would recommend the place, but not for someone who was as high functioning as my mother.

I would recommend

We chose Village at South Farms because they were close to our house and the director who gave us the tour was very informative, kind, and really made the experience a good one. All of the staff have been very friendly and I would recommend to others looking.

My tour review

I really liked this community but it was not really set up for memory care. It was nice for people who did not want to keep up a house or an apt but the adults are more proactive than my loved one. Everything is a la cart so the healthier you are the better but when there are services needed adding it all together is a lot higher in cost.

When dad died mom wanted to leave Florida and go back home to CT. I started calling assisted living facilities. The Village gave my husband and me the time and day we requested. When we got to the facility we were screened and then [name removed] came to greet us. [name removed] is very upbeat and obviously likes what she does and where she does it. I had a question sheet and [name removed] took her time answering all of them and giving us further information about South Farms. We were then given a tour of the facility. I was impressed, but this was our first stop of three. After touring the other facility I wrote an email to The Village with some comparisons I had. The Village got back to me immediately and addressed those concerns. Before making a decision I emailed The Village again with more questions. Again they got back to me very quickly with the answers. Mom has now decided to become a resident at South Farms and I continue to have questions and they continue to answer them in a very timely manner! [name removed] likes what she does and is enthusiastic about promoting South Farms but she has never been pushy. The Village continues to help us navigate mom’s journey to residency. I’m expecting The Village will continue to help us make a new home for mom and will make her feel welcome Everyone at South Farms that we met on our tour was pleasant and welcoming

Would recommend this community

The food at The Village community is very good, they have really good room sizes as well. One thing that stood out to us was how clean this community was and the decor they had.

Staff is great but procedures are frustratingly uncoordinated

By and large the staff is wonderful, and I give them a big hurrah. But there seems to be a problem with communication and coordination. For example, getting my mother ready for me to pick her up for doctor's appointments has been problematic. There seems to be no set procedure, or if there is, no one seems to know what it is. Telling the personal care aids did not work (the information didn't get passed along to the whoever was on duty the day of the appointment). Telling the nurses didn't work (although the nurses said the procedure was supposed to be to inform them about the appointment). Telling the person on duty at the front desk sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Sometimes I arrive on the day of the appointment and my mother is on a bus trip or at an activity, sometimes she is asleep, only once or twice was she dressed and ready.

A Blessed Choice forn [name removed]

As one of ten children, our Mother, [name removed], is one of the great treasures for our family. After an exhaustive search in the central Connecticut area for the safest and best living situation for a her as she was leaving her home of almost fifty years, we were fortunate to discover The Village at South Farms in Middletown, CT. Over the past two years, the entire team and staff at The Village has not only become a community for her but an extension of her prolific family. Their professionalism, compassion and attention to the quality of her wellbeing is clearly evident on a daily basis. From the outstanding administrative leadership of The Village to the skilled attentiveness of the nursing staff and outside occupational/physical therapists to the genuine concern of the personal care aids to the recreational staff, our Mother and my entire family are truly blessed in our choice of The Village of South Farms for [name removed].

Attractive building with many pleasant common spaces, engaging staff, good location near Middletown center and willing to help out in making placement affordable. Location also ended up being more accessible to family.

Good overall

Overall, very good. I think they need more caregivers. Sometimes my mom had to wait too long for help. She only lived there 2 weeks before she had to go in the hospital and then passed away. They still made us pay for an additional 15 days per policy which is longer than she even lived there. They could have and should have made an exception under the circumstances.

A comfortable feeling

The nurses are pleasant and attend to mom nicely. Mom enjoys the social activities and attending mass. She has a nice apartment like a home away from home. She seems to like the food and they do offer some variety. She had made friends. There is a salon and a doctor on site. She is able to see a dentist here. They keep the community looking great. It feels like home when you walk in and I would recommend it.

Couldn't ask for more

Everyone at the Village at South Farms has been gracious and helpful from the very first time we stepped through the doors. The place is always kept spotless and the food is much better than I ever expected. The director and staff have always been there for any questions and concerns I have had. I know that they consider it more than a job, it seems to be a passion. My mom is now safe and happy which has given me an amazing amount of peace of mind. I love the Village at South Farms.

Hats off to South Farms

My mother has been a resident at South Farms for the past few years.The staff have been sensational in her daily care.She now has been able to take weekly bus rides and enjoys the various activities that are provided daily.Not only are their employees top rated but the facility itself is always in "tip top" shape.

Nothing is perfect but The Village comes real close

We interviewed at the Village and my mother enjoyed the visit but questioned herself living there, she was a very independent woman (she thought). As things happened she fell in her apartment again and finally the Dr. in the hospital said he would not release her unless she had a care giver or a facility where she could live, We chose to place her in the Village - she was not very happy - but staff members worked with her and she now knows most of the staff by name is involved in most activities attends most socials and has a great time. She enjoys the care givers and they enjoy her the only complaint she has is with herself - "if only I could walk better i'd be out dancing she say". You could not ask for a nicer, more friendly, considerate, helpful staff with her and with us as visitors there is always a smile on most faces and lots of happiness being spread around by staff members. Could not have found a nicer facility for mom.

The Village Delivers

The Village at South Farms has been home to our parents for three years. While leaving the family home of many years was highly stressful, the staff welcomed them warmly and wrapped them in skilled, compassionate care that invited our folks to see their new apartment and surroundings as home. The environment inside and out is remarkably clean and well kept. The food and activities are well-above average and wisely aimed toward the comfort & familiarity of the residents. Additionally, we discovered The Village offers an attribute that is less tangible. Within its walls, one finds joy... Ice cream, live music, unexpected small kindnesses & laughter...no small thing.

Stay far away!!

This senior living home looks nice on the outside but is a terrible place to live!! I personally know of someone who lived here and had a terrible experience. The other positive reviews must come from the employees! Not only is living here expensive but you will not be treated with respect- I would recommend anyone looking for a home for their grandparents or mother/father to look elsewhere! The staff working here are nothing but a bunch of liars just looking to take your money. I will make sure to tell everyone I know not to live here.

Nice looking place

I toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. The facility was well kept and clean, and all of the staff I met seemed friendly and professional. We ended up selecting another community, but this is somewhere I would have considered as an option for my loved one, although it was on the more expensive end of things.

Very nice and very accommodating

They are very nice. They are very accommodating. We had some bumps on the road but they were willing to work with us. It's a beautiful facility. It has been a wonderful experience. Out of all the places we toured, this was the best alternative. My mother is still adjusting but so far so good. I would recommend this facility to anyone searching for a place.
