Memory Care is great!
The space has a lot to do for residents and they get out for events and activities often. The caregivers seem caring and to know what they are doing. Residents appear well monitored and lots of snacks and good food.

No proper training for Memory Care
1. I was told this was a memory care facility - it is not a certified memory care. 2. Only one person is trained in Alzheimer/dementia care. About 15 people, residents, few good workers carrying the load. 3. So no proper training/instruction for the workers, so no proper care as these residents need. 2. Rooms not always kept clean and things left on the floor or not put away. Dangerous for an Alzheimer patient. 5. Not enough staff on the floor for proper care especially on the weekends.

Highly recommend for memory care.
All 5 stars. My mother is happier here than she would be in a nursing home. What stuck out most about The Waterford at Colby over other places we looked at was just how very friendly all of the staff are. They really know how to work with the residents who have Alzheimer's. I would most definitely recommend The Waterford at Colby to friends and family.

Frequently Asked Questions
about The Waterford at Colby

The Waterford at Colby offers Studio and 1 Bedroom. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored The Waterford at Colby 9.5 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
