The home your family needs

Traditions of Hershey is a beautiful, clean, and safe facility. The front desk staff are very outgoing and friendly. They create a very welcoming and warm environment. They make sure to check up on your family members at least once a day. If they don't see them, they'll make it a priority to knock on their door and make sure they're okay. There's also that security of having 24 hours assistance available if it's ever needed. Amenities here include: a salon, physical therapy, an activities center, a shuttle bus for appointments twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. A couple local pharmacies will deliver medications to the community so you don't have to go and pick it up. They have activity outings to restaurants, movies theaters, museums, and outlet stores. They also have movie nights at the community and they've brought in live entertainment like musicians and choirs. They have happy hours as well, usually during the afternoon, where they provide beer, wine, and light snacks!

beautiful and accommodating

Our family was very impressed with the facility and with the marketing manager. She spent a lot of time with us to draft a care plan that would fit our dad's living needs and the family financial constraints. The building was bright and cheerfully decorated. Notices to residents in the hallways and elevators were in large print. The calendars had a nice variety of activities that would seem to appeal to many different links. The meal being cooked smelled great!

Very accommodating

The lady who gave us our tour was amazing, we were sold right away and cancelled all other tours with other facilities we had appointments with. She gave us a sense of ease during the onboarding and move in process. Our loved one wanted a studio room, but right now she is in a one bedroom until a one becomes available, and they have been so accommodating that we are paying the studio apartment price, not the one bedroom. It is a month to month cost as well, and Traditions just has everything we wanted.

Genuine , Caring, & Authentic Facility

My dear uncle has a moderate Alzheimer’s diagnosis. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful . The Home Instead nurses cared for uncle by distributing medication on a regular basis. His care level changed from an independent living status to the personal care level. The marketing member explained everything in detail in order to make the transition from independent care to personal care very welcoming and smooth . The personal care director contacted my uncle’s care providers. She informed me about the nurses being dedicated and loyal to the residents. Now we know that he will be well provided for and the current activities director will continue to go out of her way to incorporate activities into my uncle’s daily routine. She has reached out via text to reassure me that my uncle was participating in the art classes and fun entertainment events. The staff and new director, are very friendly and we feel blessed to have our uncle enjoying his safe new home away from home!

Great assisted living home

This is a decent community but I think it is better for someone that is more independent. They have activities like bingo and more for the residents to do to stay busy they were recently shut down due to covid but are open back up now.

Traditions of Hershey where every client is treated like family

You have lots of choices in elder care. Traditions of Hershey is the only place I would send someone that I love. That is because they treat your loved one like family. Your loved one will be surrounded by love and smiles from every person, and every staff is like this and makes the residents feel like like family.

Our tour experience

Our family had an in person tour, and the community was nice but they were selling it more of like independent living. So they would tell us for our loved ones medication, they would lock it in a cabinet in their room and prompt them to remember taking the medicine themselves instead of being reminded constantly. Also they were having us look at a room on the 3rd floor, and with our loved one needing a walker we did not want them having to reply on the elevators.

Highly recommend, great experience

We chose Traditions of Hershey because of the convenience to family, availability, and the price was great. We were just impressed with the overall facility itself and the staff members. The apartment sizes are very roomy and have a lot of storage space. They offer a lot of activities for the residents to participate in. My dad loves the food and a couple residents said it is the best that they have had out of any place they have been. They provide free moving which is amazing, the guys who did the moving made the whole transition unbelievably easy. I would highly recommend to others looking.

You could not ask for a nicer and caring group who bend over backwards to assist you and your loved one. They allowed the family to come see our loved one during their transition during the pandemic. The staff were quick with forward thinking and to assist with any requests.
