Very freindly

They are really friendly, everybody there. I was so impressed from the very first time when I took my loved one there and got her checked into her room, they all knew her name, including the dining waitstaff. Everybody greeted her by name, and they still do every time they see her. So I've been really impressed with that. The directors are very accessible. I can call them on their cell phones if I need to. And they're really responsive. There does seem to be a little bit of a disconnect if I ask one of the directors to give a message to my loved one's CNAs. Sometimes the whole message won't get delivered or it gets changed a little bit, but not in a serious or detrimental way. And a couple of times I've left a message and asked them to please have so and so call me, and I haven't gotten a call. So occasionally there's been a bit of a disconnect on those types of things. But overall, it's been a very good experience. The food is really good. It's really well balanced and presented well, with lots of different colors on the plate. It looks very appetizing, and everything I've eaten there has been really good. The other day they served stuffed blueberry pancakes with homemade blueberry syrup. One time they gave my loved one a sandwich where half of it would have been enough for one person, and it was just packed with meat and cheese and veggies and good things. The food is not high in sodium or fat, so I can tell that somebody has taken the time to plan a really healthy, well-balanced, nutritious diet.

Review of The Wellington Salt Lake City

Living at The Wellington is a choice and wonderful experience. The management team is outstanding and provide the care and concern needed for The Wellington to have received many outstanding Awards. The nursing staff provides individual care as needed. Our apartments are cleaned weekly, the building is maintained and decorated for each season and holiday. Activities and programs are provided daily for those who wish to participate. We make our choice of food from the weekly menu which is wonderful. I'm so happy to be living at The Wellington.

Review of The Wellington Salt Lake City

I like that if we don't eat all of the vegetables on our plates, we still get ice cream. Everyone is helpful and friendly. The activities are fun and interesting. They get us out of our rooms. We have diverse religious services.

Review of The Wellington

My mom moved into Wellington July 2019. There has not been one day I have worried about her care. The staff are helpful and kind. They know her and me always having welcoming words. I do want to call ut [name remoed] she was amazing. She kept her eye open for a room that worked for my mom and called as soon as it was available. She goes above in my opinion. She will text me pictures of my mom at activities. I see her connecting with residents all the time. My mom says she is lucky to be at Wellington.

Review of The Wellington

I am a nurse for hospice and home health and I am in several facilities locally. The Wellington is an example of excellence in the community. During the pandemic, not only have they (the staff and administration) strived for excellent infection control, they have achieved an atmosphere where the residents continue to get great care and I've seen so much compassion, respect, and I love given by several staff members. Dignity I respect is penultimate at The Wellington! Thank you!

Claustrophobic hallways

During the first time I toured this location I saw that they have a beautiful open area, the sales representatives were nice, however it wasn’t to my love one liking. The hallways are claustrophobic and they were just super stuffed with stuff. It made maneuvering difficult. There were just too much going on and it’s a tight space. Unfortunately, we did not move forward with moving into this facility.

We were ready to move in

My parents had already put money down on a perfect apartment. They were set up to move and then they went and had a meal there. There were so many disabled residents. And my parents are very active, it just wasn't as crisp and clean or up to date as the others we toured. It wasn't a good fit for them.

A little pricey

My mom and I were looking for a place for her to live and we almost decided on this one. My mother was a little concerned about the cost, but we were seriously considering it. Overall, the facility was very nice. She wasn't pleased with the fact that she wouldn't be able to go into Salt Lake City, though, if she wanted to. I even brought my dog with me to scope things out and they were pretty great about it. We wound up going somewhere else, but this place wasn't bad.

Second Choice

I really liked this community a lot. It was a bigger facility and I was concerned that my mom would get overwhelmed by the size of the facility and the floor plan. She would have had to take an elevator to get to the dining area or the activities and she would have gotten lost and I was concerned that they would say she was having difficulty learning the areas and needed more assistance which possibility increased the price. The staff I met was nice and informative.

Highly Recommended

We highly recommend the Wellington. Throughout the last 2 years, without exception, every person taking care of our mom - from the nursing staff, CNA's, housekeeping, kitchen staff and management - always go the extra mile to ensure every detail is taken care of. They are efficient, gracious and attentive. The activities and all facilities such as the kitchen, building and grounds are outstanding and well administered. In particular, we wish to call attention to [Removed] for their personal and unparalleled involvement in every aspect of the operations and administration of the Wellington. The positive, generous and friendly culture they have created at the Wellington is clearly present and expressed by every employee.

I was very impressed with my first impression walking through the door, I was greeted with smiles and hello from staff and residents, the feeling was warm and was very positive. The building was immaculate and very well maintained. I would highly recommend the Wellington if you are looking for a caring, loving, comfortable and fun place for your loved one.

This is the Place!

While having visited several sites for Mom, this one really stood out. My Mom has 5 Daughters, and 3 of us were on the "hunt". We walked into The Wellington and it felt like a hug. Very welcoming...clean (but not 'hospital sterile' feeling) and professional. To get all of us to agree on a site was a miracle in itself! Tenants we visited with who were already there seemed very content and happy. Mom's first week there was spent having meals with peers, sharing stories and laughs. Mom is 93...and she's really brightened up since at The Wellington. Thank you 'A Place For Mom' for assisting us with our search. Success at last!

We are very pleased with The Wellington. My mother is thriving. She is eating and doing things. It's been great. You walk in and it's liking walking into a gorgeous hotel. She is really enjoying the exercise classes. It has worked out really well. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone.

Wellington is a lovely place with nice apartments. My father resided there almost two years. If your parent(s) is healthy it is a nice facility, but once medications or assists come into play you need to watch them carefully for med administration timing and PLEASE check your loved ones Emergency Call Button as my father's hadn't been working and he said 'no one ever came' when he used it; no wonder! This is imperative in a facility where seniors are prone to falls. My father passed mid-month and PLEASE be aware even in death you must give 30 days notice, I'd paid several thousand ($5K) for under 1/2 a month and got less than a thousand back in the form of a refund; plus they take an upfront deposit so they make a ton of money from turnover and at end of life which makes it even harder for grieving families. The staff Are nice and work hard, but they are understaffed and under monitored. Be vigilant for your loved one, which was hard for me out-of-state so I made frequent trips. The food is adequate; nice dining area. If your parent(s) are relatively healthy it's a very nice facility, just make sure to stay Engaged and Read the Contract (my sister signed my dad up there so I did not know the 30 day clause; otherwise I would have moved dad to a SNF.) There is a very nice, kind new RN there named Lisa who helped at the end of dad's life and that was comforting. It is a business, but tough on a fixed income.
