It is a lovely place when you go there and look around, the deck outside is beautiful to look off of and it has a very pleasant atmosphere. The community is relatively very clean, however our loved ones room could of used a little more cleaning and their laundry could of been done more on a regular basis. Our family did not had a good experience, the care was terrible and so was the theft. Our loved one did not receive their medication for moms, because the aids did not call the pharmacy for new prescriptions. Also our loved ones hearing aids were stolen and their eye glasses went mission for two months. We would not recommend this facility.
The communication between the staff and the family was very good. they were very quick to return my calls and were very helpful. I would recommend this community to others. The community is very neat and clean also
Wingate is a nice place. The seem to really be on top of things and take good care of my mom. They are aware when she isn't feeling well and are quick to notify me and keep me informed of her care. I feel like they are doing a good job. There has been a little bit of staff turnover but I have found that my mother is still being well taken care of. We chose this community because we liked what we saw on our tour, it seemed like a smaller organization, and we liked the location. The building is a little dated but they are working on updates . I would recommend this community to other families.
My husband lived at Melbourne (Wingate) on their Memory Care Unit. They were incredibly caring and knowledgeable, and I believe provide the very best memory care. Memory Care Director [name removed] is just the very best!
My father lived in the assisted living part of the building from 2013 until 2017 when Epoch ran the facility. That part of his experience was great. He had to move into memory care in 2017 when Wingate took over the facility. Our experience in that part of the facility was poor. There was not enough staff, his bathroom was often filthy, the set-up for activities was not good as residents had to travel in a small elevator to go down a floor for activities and most of the activities were not anything my dad wanted to participate in. Most of the time, people were just in front of a television set. I would not recommend memory care to anyone.
My mother has been a resident for over 2 years now at Melbourne. The staff are always friendly and show their care when attending mom's needs. I feel that when I do have a question about her care, it is addressed in a timely and professional manner. My mom always looks well taken care of, and the staff provides activities which are appropriate with residents who have dementia. Since my mom always loves the outdoors, I'm glad that Melbourne provides a courtyard where she is able to sit with other residents and staff members and be safe. It allows her to enjoy the good weather days.
The room is a little small for dad. The staff have been great. This community does seem a little expensive for a respite stay. The food is good and they have a nice dining room. The community is clean and I would recommend this community for a respite stay.
My mother is staying at EPOCH Assisted Living at Melbourne. They have been very attentive and very caring. They have shown that they are very genuinely interested in the well-being of my mother.
Dad is living here now and although it's only been a few weeks so far, we feel comfortable about where he is and pleased with our selection. We toured almost every assisted living facility in Western Mass and found that Epoch and another facility were our top picks. It was very surprising how similar the pricing was for each facility we toured and startled that some facilities were charging the same for, what we feel, was substandard housing situations. Epoch was clean, sunny, and friendly. Our other choice also had these traits, but we ultimately decided to go with Epoch because it was a bit less expensive and seemed to have a more casual atmosphere, which is more conducive to our Dad.
Everyone was friendly and answered all of my questions from my initial visit until the day my mom moved in. It is a very caring facility. The employees know the names of the residents and more importantly treat them with respect. I feel comfortable with my mom living there and feel she is safe and well taken care of.
