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.

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.

Hartford is considered very friendly to members of the LGBTQ+ community. This means that members of the community are accepted by the general public and can actively participate in public life without fear of bigotry.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Hartford is one of the oldest cities in the United States, having been recognized as a township since the early 1600s. As such, it is a history buff’s dream. Many historic sites and structures integral to our nation’s past still stand in Hartford and are able to be visited by the public. Bushnell Park, a 50-acre public space, is the oldest publicly-funded park in the country and is visited by over one million people every year. It was established in the 1850s in response to a need for public gathering spaces. Today the park is a centerpiece of the city and hosts a number of festivals throughout the year.

Founded in 1774, the Hartford Public Library is another major city landmark of yesteryear that is still in operation. The library remains at the same site as its 1957 location, close to its original birthplace, although the community has undergone a 145,000 square foot renovation in recent times and is kept up-to-date with modern amenities such as computers and WiFi. Originally housing the library in the 1800s, the Wadsworth Atheneum is the oldest operating public art museum in the United States. Named after the Wadsworth family, a notable lineage in Hartford history, the Atheneum is known for ancient bronze sculptures, Renaissance and Baroque paintings, early African-American art, French and American Impressionism and more, spanning thousands of years of artistic contributions.

Perhaps no visit to Hartford would be complete without a trip to the Mark Twain House, the former home of celebrated American author Samuel Clemens, also known as Mark Twain. The Victorian house was Twain’s home in the late 1800s and the location where he wrote much of his best known works. Today, the Mark Twain House stands as a museum dedicated to the life and significance of one of America’s most revered historical icons.

Transportation

Hartford’s public transportation system is operated by CTtransit, who maintains a public bus system throughout the city. The bus runs 7 days a week, from early morning till night time hours, and covers a large portion of the metropolitan area. Discounted fees are offered to seniors age 65 and above, and persons with disabilities.
