Review ofAtria Crossroads Place
4.1

Atria Crossroads is a very friendly community with a clean environment. The staff are friendly. There are some things they weren't able to provide as far as care goes, but they do a good job overall.

Review ofBrookdale West Hartford
5.0

We were pleased with them. We had a good experience. They're conveniently located, and the building faces the back 9 of the golf club. The admissions director was wonderful. They were very good any time we had a little problem - they called us back and got back to us quickly. My loved one was happy there, and we would use them again for a respite stay. The only problem was we couldn't get the cable TV to work, and the other residents said that was pretty typical.

My mother has since passed, and the amazing staff at care given at home have been such a great support. Throughout the years we’ve had them caring for our mom, the caregivers have all been very dependable and the quality of care has been great. Through rehab and hospice, they were always very supportive, and even the office staff was great and conscientious of what we were going through. This company has helped up through a very tough time, and they helped make everyone’s lives happier and more wholesome throughout.

I chose them because they were recommended to me by someone else. Most of the time they are pretty good about their scheduling. They are on time and show up when they are supposed to. My caregivers will do pretty much everything I will ask him to do, but I am not as dependent on someone else as others may be. I had a good experience with them and I would recommend to others looking.
