Traditions of Wayland used to be a great place to live for my Mother. She has lived there for several years. The Staff and Management used to be really great. Now the staff is very unpleasant and never smile. Things have changed drastically in the past month. The new staff are not experienced. The home my mother used to enjoy, she nolonger enjoys. The place is messy and unorganized. All the new changes in staff past few months have not been great. The food is bland and does not taste well anymore. The Activities Director that my mom loved quit recently. The dining department just recently lost two of the best people who made the overall dining service pleasurable for my mom and the other residents. The dining service has been awful lately and the dining staff have been unpleasant. The housekeeping staff used to be great and now noone keeps areas clean anymore. Considering moving my mother to a different location if things do not improve.

In my numerous recent community-wide family meetings and individual conversations, residents and family members have provided nearly unanimous positive reviews of current community life at Traditions of Wayland. Understandably, some individual residents and family members find it difficult when some staff members move on either to pursue other opportunities or for other reasons. We assumed management of the community several months ago, and with the encouragement and support of many long-tenured, highly valued professional managers and staff at Traditions, we have been working to: improve the quality of resident services, heighten the professional standards of staff, provide increased staff training and professional development opportunities; and provide vastly increased communication to residents and families. However, as the saying goes, you can’t please everyone, and some longtime staff have moved on. Overall the changes have gone quite well and our newer team members are qualified, caring professionals. Our new Executive Director, Libby Matei is an experienced assisted living professional who brings both enthusiasm and diligence to the community. Traditions continues to enjoy the services of our tremendous long-term Resident Care Director and staff of nurses and caregivers; Social and EnrichedLIFE programming in our traditional assisted living and memory care neighborhood is now expanding to seven days per week; we have hired an experienced assisted living EnrichedLIFE Director who is excited to get to know the residents, and bring new ideas into our robust programming, entertainment, and lifelong learning pursuits. Our Executive Chef is already improving the quality and delivery dining services. We know as experienced assisted living owners and managers that every single change that has occurred has been in the residents’ best interest and has been a change for the better. To longtime residents and family members we can only ask for a bit of patience and to give the newer folks a few weeks to settle in and get to know you better. In the meantime I am available to residents and family members at any time, so please don’t hesitate to reach out directly to me at any time so that I can address any individual concerns. - Robert Larkin, President, Senior Living Residences
I moved my parents into Traditions of Wayland this year. The facility is located in a country setting in what was formerly a mansion. The beautiful exposed brick in some of the hallways, the warm mahogany paneled library and the bright and attractive dining room and adjoining patio create an atmosphere of home that is unparalleled. I chose this facility after interviewing and visiting other facilities. Traditions of Wayland offers independent living, assisted living and memory care. From the minute that I walked in the door at Traditions, I knew it was the right place for my parents. The staff was kind, warm and caring. I was impressed as I watched how the residents were treated. I was even more impressed when I asked the residents if they were happy at Traditions and they went out of their way to reassure me and my parents that they would be very happy there. My parent's apartment was welcoming and roomy with views of the patio and countryside. The apartments are kept very clean, the food is exceptional and the waitstaff is accommodating. They have excellent exercise and activities programs. When my dad's health began to go downhill, the staff made allowances to make sure that he felt welcome, that he was given world class service and that he could stay with my mother through it all. When he died after only a month at Traditions, the kindness and caring extended to my mother was not to be believed. The staff went out of their way to engage her in activities and to make sure that she met others who had experienced the same loss and could offer support. My mother looks relaxed and happy and feels better than she has in a long time. What could be a better testament to Traditions of Wayland.
