Review ofThe Arbors at Hauppauge
5.0

Dear [name removed[ and [name removed], Just a heartfelt Thank You for your patience and understanding in guiding me through the process of getting my mother into The Arbors Assisted Living at Hauppauge. It's only Day 4 - but already we hear the joy and contentment in Mom's voice as she describes her day. She speaks fondly of all the festive decorations, the variety of food, the fun activities ( eg. Musical Magic with [name removed] and [name removed]). She adores all the members of the staff- she finds them friendly, supportive and kind. She was appreciative of the maintenance man who hung up her (new) TV. I am thrilled that my mom is settling in and that she loves her new home. I am at PEACE with my decision. I will continue to be your biggest cheerleader. I have told all my co-workers about the warm and inviting feeling you get when you enter Arbors at Hauppauge.

Review ofSpring Village at Stratford
5.0

My mother is 89. Last January I noticed a marked decrease in memory and ability to handle everyday tasks. I searched for a care facility and was luck y to find Spring Village. The staff and management have proven professional and caring. She expresses trust she likes it there. The management has done a commendable job in handling the COVID protocols. I receive notices of any changes in mom's needs or facility, visitors, etc...I rest assured that mom is in good hands and receiving quality care.
