The best thing that has happened to my mom.

IT has been a very friendly community. In the memory care unit, she doesn't get out much. But the staff have been very welcoming and very helpful. They have lots of activities. They do exercises every morning. They do their nails and makeover kind of things. They have a hairdresser who comes in once a week. There's a nice outside courtyard where the residents are free to sit outdoors when the weather is nice. The activities director takes them on outings for ice cream and things like that. They have movie nights with popcorn. So she's very busy. They do a good job keeping the residents engaged.... Read more

Walden Place is The Place for Your Loved One

I would recommend Walden Place to others for their loved ones, and already have. I wish the follow up on information from the staff about my loved one's care would be better. Some of the care my loved one receives includes monitor blood sugar, medication management, and more Bus Trips, shopping trips, bingo, outside entertainment, music, activity center, and more are some of the activities for the residents to choose from. The food is excellent here.

A nice community

The staff are very friendly, personable and helpful. The apartments are a good size with plenty of room. From what our loved one has said the meal and dining service is great and even though they choose to not participate in the activities they always have a ton going on. We would recommend the Walden Place to other families.

Walden Place review

Our loved one has settled in nicely, the staff made sure on our initial tours to really engage with our loved one in conversation. We were very impressed with the staff from the very beginning. You can tell they really know their stuff from the heart, it gave us confidences knowing we are doing the right thing. The place itself is a little limited, the lounge area and activities space is small, but there is a nice little garden.

Thank you so much for the positive feedback!

Overall we feel like it was a pretty good experience, and we would recommend it

Our loved one first moved in on the memory care side and that was a very good experience The person who oversaw it was great, she really seemed on top of everything and was always very responsive. We had great communication with her. Now our loved one is on the assisted living side and we know there was going to be less oversight, but the nurse who oversees assisted living has been a little difficult working with, sometimes the communication gets lost regarding our loved ones medication.

The staff was so compassionate and friendly. They did a good job taking care of my loved one and tried to provide in-room activities for her. The communication was so good when it came to covid and keeping informed. I would recommend this community to others and already have.

Highly Recommended

I would recommend this community. The community has hired a full time activities director for the memory care floor. There are computer games for recognition, personal care like manicures, field trips, arts and crafts, and prior to COVID they would stop and get ice cream. The food is really good. The room is spacious for my loved one.

Policies are not adequately explained.

My father was a recent resident of Walden Place in Cortland, NY. We were pleased with his care during his stay there. The problem arose when my father fell and broke his hip. He required surgery and was in intensive care for a week. During that week it became clear that he would not qualify to return to Walden Place. We gave notice and removed his belongings on November 9, 2018. We were told by one staff member that we would be required to continue to pay for his room through December 9, 2018 even though for medical reasons he would not be allowed to return. When we questioned this policy another staff member told us we would not be required to continue to pay if the resident had vacated due to medical issues. My father has subsequently passed away and the family is being pressured into continued payment through 12/9/18. We were never told that a resident would need to schedule a fall, hip surgery and subsequent death to assure that adequate notice was given when vacating a room.

My Tour Of This Community Went Pretty Well

My tour of this is community was a pleasant one. The community looked nice and clean. The staff was kind and very friendly. This is an assisted living community, and my in laws are still pretty independent. It was a good tour, but not the place for my in laws.

Walden - high commitment

After researching and speaking with several people and professionals regarding eldercare and assisted living, my Mother chose Walden Place in Cortland NY. And has recently moved there. Walden is a bright, airy, well maintained fairly new facility of assisted living. The professional staff have proven themselves attentive, caring, helpful in coordinating the best care plan and combination of assistance where Mom needs it, and independence for Mom. There is a wide variety of activity options for the residents. The food is very very good. The housekeeping services and laundry well attended. Always, when I walk in, there is a cheerfulness and sense of community at Walden. I have known other families who have chosen Walden and feel similarly in Waldens intent to assist people with dignity, concern, respect and a joy for each day. I highly recommend Walden Place.

Quite please with Walden Place.

We are so glad that we moved our Mom to Walden Place. She is very pleased with her efficiency apartment. She has her own space to enjoy by herself, or she can participate in the many activities that they offer if she wants to. She loves the fact that she has a window in her room that allows her to see folks coming and going, or just to see what the weather is doing. She also has her own heater/cooling system in her apartment for her individual comfort. We know that Mom is eating three meals per day and that she is taking her meds as needed. Mom seems quite contented at Walden Place, which makes us very happy.

We toured and made this our choice

I had looked at many places but Walden Place was the right fit. Yes, it is not cheap but I feel it is truly worth it. My mother has made the transition quite well. The staff and residents have made both my Mom and myself feel very welcome. Her one bedroom is quite nice and my Mom is very much at home there. My mother is very forgetful and the staff is great at reminding her of meals, activities and meds. I am also thrilled to have my mother so much closer to me.
