I have never seen so many people at one organization, so friendly and so willing to work with you They have a lot to do, but I think they need to get a better pulse on the client's wants. I have sticker shock with the rent and the home health care. It is definitely less than other places I checked on. I feel comfortable with my parents living there.

Wonderful place
My mom is a resident in Independent Living Enhanced care and I can't speak highly enough about the caretakers and staff. My mom is happy and comfortable there. She enjoys most of the meals, and there are alternatives available if she doesn't like the main entrees. I would definitely recommend.

Traditions of Hershey, 5 stars
Traditions of Hershey have a friendly staff who enjoy the residents and their work. I have witnessed the employees beginning lighthearted conversations with the residents. They are very welcoming to extended family too. The building is beautifully decorated. Managers connect people with common interests and where one person can provide conversational assistance due to circumstances in second person's life. There are many activities daily at Traditions and frequent trips (grocery and other shopping, fun trips, restaurants, dr appointments) if residents are able to travel. The maintenance staff have been easy to work with as they hung window hardware for curtains and hung pictures. Their apartment feels like home. The apartment door decorations give a cheerful, homelike appearance and tell of a person's interests. Use of laundry detergent, washers and dryers is included in monthly cost. My parents enjoy the meals and conversation with others. Traditions of Hershey has been a very good choice for my parents (in their 90s) since it allows them to be independent with assistance available if they have an immediate need.

Amazing staff!!!
After touring multiple facilities for my grandma this one by far was the best! They informed me every step of the way to make it an easy transition for my grandma. After move in it was amazing to see how happy my grandma was with the staff. And how well they treated her. You could see how much the staff truly cares by the way they take care of her. Oh not to mention all of the fun activities they have for her to participate in! They just had a s’more night and she was so happy to have one of those again! Thank you for making my grandma feel at home.

We toured this community and it exceeded our expectations. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted with such happiness and hospitality. The building is beautiful and you can tell the residents who live there are happy and enjoy being apart of the activities they provide. We happened to visit during happy hour and what a treat that is! The rooms we looked at were beyond beautiful, spacious, and CLEAN. You can tell they take such pride in ensuring everyone feels welcomed and can enjoy themselves. This place is where we plan to stay and highly recommend you take a tour to see all the wonderful things we did!

Wonderful Facility and Staff
I recently toured Traditions of Hershey with my parents.The staff showed great dedication to resident well-being that in turn created a warm and supportive atmosphere that felt like home.Their personalized approach to care strikes a perfect balance between assistance and maintaining independence, making each day fulfilling and joyful. It was clear that the residents were connected to all of the services they need such as transportation to appointments, which comes at no extra cost to them.While touring, we saw the residents enjoying a musical performance from an outside group.We also learned that they provide spiritual services, and have group outings. I found this to be a great asset to residents who may not have the ability to get out due to transportation limitations. The facility's amenities are top-notch, offering both comfort and functionality. Overall, we loved what we saw and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great senior living facility!

Warm and friendly environment
The staff at Traditions of Hershey takes the time to get to know each of the residents, their likes and dislikes, and they check in with them on a daily basis. Everyone has been warm, friendly, and outgoing. The food is the only thing my mother in law feels could be improved. I would definitely recommend Traditions of Hershey to other families looking.

My mom was a resident at Traditions of Hershey for four years. The care and compassion she received from the staff and caregivers was excellent. They truly became our extended family. I would (and do) recommend TOH to friends, etc. who are looking for an independent/personal care living facility.

Easy Transition to Traditions of Hershey
Moving into Traditions of Hershey was a very easy transition. The folks working at Traditions of Hershey have welcomed my parents with open arms. Everyone from the director of the facility, sales and marketing, food service, and maintenance all presented and continue to provide and maintain a professional, helpful, and welcoming spirit. Any potential issues have been met with a positive attitude of “how can we help.” While everything has been fantastic from the first day we entered the facility, they continue to look for suggestions on how to improve. The family atmosphere is very apparent, as they are friendly and genuine in everything they do. I would highly recommend checking out Traditions of Hershey as an Independent or Personal Care Facility. We found that making the transition was easy and stress-free. [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], and [name removed]are great assets to Traditions of Hershey, as well as the rest of the entire staff.

A Place for Mom has scored Traditions of Hershey 9.8 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.
