About the community

There are assisted living facilities. And then there's The Residence. One reason why The Residence is such a special place to live is that we understand every family wants the very best for loved ones.

As a company that is family-operated, our commitment is to each resident individually - providing the kind of compassionate companionship, respect and integrity we would expect for members of our own family. At the same time, we make sure every resident enjoys all life has to offer, taking part in a wide assortment of supervised activities while enjoying the finest accommodations.

In addition to our unparalleled amenities, The Residence offers health care services, such as an on-site wellness clinic. Physical, speech and occupational therapies specifically designed for the needs of seniors are available through local agencies. The Residence - there's no other assisted living experience quite like it. Welcome Home!

Mediocre Community

I would tell others that don't expect everything you hear from the sales calls and meetings. My loved one was a different community and we are finding the same things that we found there. The meals are inconsistent, you may have one good meal and several bad meals. The nursing staff is unorganized, and there is a lack of follow up from the leadership;.

keeping memory care patients active and involved

It's a great structured program. The staff really got to know the residents. They had active programs and activities for the residence. It was a very caring community and the residence was also very friendly.

Great place for a loved one!

We really liked how when we came to first visit this community, all the residents seemed really engaged with each other as well as the staff. They were doing things all the time. The rooms are very comfortable at this community, however some of the room styles are more difficult to decorate but you just have to get creative. The rooms were all kept very clean. This community has a lot of natural light and is very airy. Our loved one is very happy with the food, she really enjoys all of it. We have been very pleased with this community

Best of the ones that I've seen

We chose this facility because we really liked the staff here after visiting a few times and we liked the layout of the floors. We also liked that everything was so close, it is only a two story building. They also had an a lot of activities that the residents could partake in. The staff was really willing to get my mom involved in things. I would recommend this The Residence at Glen Riddle.

Proper placement

I would want people who are looking into the Residence at Glen Riddle to make sure you loved one is properly placed between personal care and memory care. They did have a lot of COVID cases. I would not recommend this community to a friend or family member.

Concerned - Loved one of resident/client

After observing for a long period of time, I have not noticed a vacuum cleaner being operated in any of the rooms. The room of the resident I visit is always dirty - everywhere, especially the bathroom. I have only seen the room clean once in 3 years. Evidently, no one inspects to see that the rooms are cleaned, and that the clothes are washed properly, if at all - especially on the weekends.

The Residence at Glen Riddle

My mom has been there for about 7 months and we have been very happy with the staff. We have had some things that required attention but the staff has always been responsive. No place is perfect but being able to work with staff is very important! The residence is kept clean and the property well maintained. Very close to the hospital.

Did not care for this one, the memory care floor smelled as soon as we entered it.

This is a community I would recommend to my family, and friends.
