Exceeded My Expectations!

I moved my dad into Traditions of Dedham over six months ago. He was very reluctant to move anywhere, and it took a significant amount of coaxing. I rarely post reviews but feel strongly enough to post and hopefully help others in making this important decision. I toured eight assisted living complexes in the MetroWest Boston area in 2017. There were pros and cons with all and I did my best balancing location, price, services, activities and cleanliness into my decision. This is not an easy task since all facilities will do their best presenting to you a wonderful image during your tour along with expressing the high level of care they provide to their senior population. Traditions of Dedham has exceeded my highest expectations in every area. Initially, I was concerned that my dad would be sitting in his room for most of the day watching television. The reality is that he rarely sits alone in his lovely apartment and is continually on the move participating in almost all the activities. It reminds me of overnight summer camp as a kid. He doesn’t like, but loves, the food and is eating a very well balanced and nutritionally sound diet. He can order anything on the menu and often chooses one of the two specials at each meal. The dining room is staffed by an accommodating staff and there are often office personnel who help during meals. Everyone working at Traditions knows every guest’s name and meal preferences. Whether it’s tea, coffee, fruit cups or juice, it is always at their seat before anyone sits down. I live 15 minutes away in Wellesley and am a regular visitor. Whenever I am there I witness a staff of employees cleaning everything including hand rails, switches, chairs and walls. The level of maintenance and cleaning is and was a factor in my evaluation of the facility. My dad’s room is cleaned weekly along with his sheets being laundered. There are several laundry rooms with updated machines at no cost to the community. The management staff at Traditions of Dedham are all engaged in every aspect of running the facility. I was initially surprised by the accessibility of everyone in the community with the office. Everyone’s door is always open in the main office. My dad has made many friends and absolutely loves his new home and community. I strongly recommend that if you are looking for a fabulous home for your parent(s), you consider Traditions of Dedham. They have exceeded all expectations!

Review originally written on A Place For Mom

reality from a user

Folks, the prior reviews are from people who "toured" the facility. What a crock. It's been numerous years since my mom stayed at Traditions, but they were far from 5 stars and I find it suspect that real users answers are buried. Mine shall likely be as well. Beware of a clean facad. That is not the best way to judge a facility.

A beautiful place!

I really liked Traditions of Dedham when I toured. They did a very good job with the tour and the facility was beautiful. My father only qualifies with their memory care, though, so we chose another community.
