Very nice friendly community
Overall, from all reports it seems to be going very well. She seems happy, healthy and safe. She feels the care is good. My dad had some confusion about the medical care- but that could be him misunderstanding some things. The facility is very nice and we are happy so far. I am neither the health care proxy nor the POA- so my communication with staff is limited.

Traditions is wonderful
From the first day that we visited Traditions of Dedham my friends and I felt very comfortable. There was a very welcoming feeling to the place. [name removed] met with the friends and explained every detail of the services that Traditions would provide. She never hesitated to answer our many questions and even anticipated some of the things we should know. We were given a complete tour of the facilities and met many members of the staff who would be helping our friend. Since moving into Traditions our friend has adjusted beautifully to her new apartment. She is enjoying meals in the dining room and has met new friends there. One of the biggest benefits is the opportunity for her to socialize with other residents and participate in the many activities offered. Traditions and its staff have offered her a new outlook on her everyday living. Once again, kudos to the entire staff but especially [name removed] who has gone out of her way to make sure our friend is adjusting well.

Overall I am pleased, but have some disappointments
Pros) it's not a lock down place. It's like she has her apt and she can come and go and people can visit. Food is great. Always company available. Hair salon on site. Encouraging socialization. Cons) I was under the impression that some basic med needs would be handled but I guess not. She has to take eye drops for an upcoming surgery and her friends told me the facility is unable to assist. I assumed she would at least be able to get a quick reminder for the few days she has to do the drops every 4 hours. I can somewhat understand not being able to administer the drops for her but reminders after surgery shouldn't be a problem. She also has the sleep apnea machine. I can again kind of understand you not being able to put it on. But I don't understand why she can't have a little more help with the reminder to wear it. Like a quick knock on her door after her evening meds. Maybe when she gets her meds write a note and place it on her bed so she sees it. Just something. Her neurologist said it's vital to keeping her memory issues from progressing so I wish there was something more that could be done. I know you can't force her and babysit her. I understand everyone is busy. But I feel like something could be done She is there for her memory and those 2 things are pretty important for her medical care so I was confused and disappointed when her friends explained she was unable to receive assistance for those 2 things. Another pro is it looks like a home, looks welcoming, from the outside and inside. Overall she seems very happy and the place seems great. I guess my expectations of medication management assistance were off. So I would have wanted to know in detail exactly what the medication management assistance covers and will not cover

Thank you so much for your kind words, we really appreciate getting that kind of feedback. As far as the medication management goes, it seems there may have been a misunderstanding. Our community does offer the SAMM program and your aunt is fully eligible for medication, eye drop, and CPAP machine reminders whenever she needs them. We would advise you to contact the community immediately to assure that all of this is clear to your aunt and so we can provide the services she needs. We truly appreciate you being a part of Traditions.

We chose this place because of the friendliness, reasonable cost, and it's nearby to where I live. My mother is starting out in independent living and she can stay in the same apartment if she needs assisted-living help in the future. Also, they invited her to have lunch with a current resident while we were looking so she could get a feel for it. They offer a wide variety of activities. They do offer housekeeping once a week and can do laundry for an extra fee. Everything seems very clean. Smaller facility where the staff seem to know all the residents. I would definitely recommend them.

Great Respite Care
We chose Traditions of Dedham for a 3 week respite stay for my mom. It was fabulous; although about half of the time she was there, they unfortunately had a Covid outbreak. They seemed to handle it all efficiently. They had all the residents tested, and quarantined those we needed to be isolated. It was an unfortunates experience, but thankfully my mom didn't get Covid. It changed the activities and the dining experience - it wasn't what it could have been during that time. Once things cleared up, she was then able to experience the activities and socialization aspect of being there. Overall they handled it very well and I would recommend Traditions to others for either respite or long term . I think they were very good.

Best place for Mom
Our mother has lived at Traditions for the past 4 years. Initially in assisted living and now Memory care. The staff is amazing. They are all so kind and caring. They know our mother well and have also been a support to us in navigating her care. Attention to detail is where they excell. Mom always looks so nice. Her outfits are clean and even coordinated. They let us know if anything comes up or Mom needs anything at all. We truly can’t say enough good things about Traditions of Dedham.

Overall pleased
My friend is quite contrary, she tends to irritate the aids which makes it difficult for her because she is very dependent on the assistance from them. She has not quite gotten the feel for it all since she has private aids and expects them all to act that way. Some are wonderful but I think some could be more sympathetic. The activities are wonderful, I have seen many of them going on. I have been to several of the religious services, painting classes, concerts, etc. The room sizes at Traditions are the largest out of all of the other facilities that we toured. The staff are very good with their response time and come when she calls them. Overall I am very happy with the facility, but my friend is hit or miss depending on the day.

Traditions of Dedham has a smaller more homey atmosphere and it has an older transitional look with a modern attitude. The room sizes are fabulous and very spacious. Overall the staff and the care she is getting and the diligence and response time has been awesome.

Hoping for the best for my loved one.
The general areas are cleaner than my loved one's room, but it's not that clean overall. I'm not very happy with the care that she's getting. I don't know if it's the times due to Covid. Also, it has been an adjustment for my mother, and she complains a lot. She says she can't understand them. They all speak Haitian, and then she herself speaks broken English. She can't hear well, and she feels like they yell at her a lot. They've all been very nice to me. She loves the kitchen staff and says they're wonderful to her. The recreational staff is absolutely wonderful, [name removed] in particular. He has been exceptionally nice to her. Some of the aides she really loves. Some respect her wishes not to come in too early, and others just do as they please. I think the care staff are very overworked, and some try to accommodate her, while others try to accommodate themselves. Also, when we first interviewed Traditions, they told me that she was first on the in-house list for financial assistance. And now I feel like I was deceived. Since we've been there, they now say there are two people ahead of us, and I'm not sure why.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We are always looking for ways that we can improve, and the only way that we measure success is by your satisfaction. It is very heartwarming to hear your kind words about our associate staff, but I am sorry that your mother sometimes has difficulty hearing or understanding them. As for the cleanliness issue, there is obviously no excuse for that, and I hope you found that to be productively addressed in your recent meeting with the Executive Director. I hope that financial assistance issue was also addressed satisfactorily. It can be a complex topic, and the last thing we want you to feel is somehow mislead. Again, thank you for your constructive criticism, and thank you far being a part of our community at Traditions.

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!

Eric, your heartfelt recommendation means so much to the entire team here at Traditions of Dedham. We also agree that comparing communities at a glance can be a difficult task. On paper, what you hear from one to the next, can start to sound the same. We've always felt that the best gauge of a community, is how you feel from the moment you walk in. We pride ourselves on building a vibrant, safe, and supportive home where our residents thrive through meaningful lifelong learning and social programming, healthful dining options that taste good, and a team of valued associates who fully embrace our right values mission which places quality of life for our residents as our utmost priority. Thank you for sharing your dad's story. We are lucky to have him here and he is lucky to have such a caring family by his side.

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.

Since your mother was a resident of Traditions of Dedham numerous years ago there have been some changes that current residents and families are telling me have been very positive. The company I work for, Senior Living Residences of Braintree, MA, assumed oversight of the day-to-day operations of the community in January of this year. We have been a trusted name in senior care and housing in Massachusetts for over 25 years. Part of our transition in leadership included a unified effort to: improve the quality of resident care and services most especially in the memory support neighborhood (re-named Compass Memory Support); provide comprehensive staff training and professional development; and implement increased communications with residents and families. In many recent community-wide family meetings and individual conversations, residents and family members have provided very positive reviews of current community life at Traditions of Dedham. Our EnrichedLIFE Director is very well liked and gets almost unanimous positive feedback on his robust social, fitness and adult learning programs. I have also received positive responses to our other efforts to improve resident care and other services. I agree with you that consumers should be cautious when sorting through online reviews. I can personally attest to the fact that Traditions of Dedham has a close-knit community of residents and families who are eager to share their positive experiences. I am sorry you were not happy when your Mom lived here years ago. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you would like to discuss your experience further. At Senior Living Residences we are proud of our commitment to constant improvement and innovation. An important part of that mission is soliciting feedback and listening to families so that we can provide the very best assisted living has to offer seniors.

Lovely place
Traditions of Dedham was a very nice and clean community that we toured. It is a lovely place. The marketing director was very friendly and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We chose another smaller community and the price was more in line with our budget.

I was extremely impressed with Traditions. The grounds are nicely manicured, the rooms bright and cheery, very friendly staff and should you desire, plenty of activities to keep you busy the entire day.

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.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the Massachusetts regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about Massachusetts regulations for Assisted Living.

A Place for Mom has scored Traditions of Dedham 9.1 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.
