Review ofHuntington Place
4.1

My friend's needs are more memory-related than general assisted living, and I don't know how equipped they are to handle that outside of memory care. But I am very grateful that my friend is there, and they're able to help her with showering and things when she needs it. They're trying their best to get her to come down to meals and participate in activities. It has been a little vexing that a mirror that we reported broken still hasn't been replaced yet. The biggest challenge it seems at all of the facilities we looked at, including Huntington Place, is the activities. I would love to see some exercise opportunities for her. The trips to Walmart are great. What she really needs is someone to accompany her in the store, which I understand is more of a memory care function vs. assisted living. I think if we had it to do over again, we would request medication management as well. That's on me, just something I've learned along the way. But the apartments are head over heels above the other places we looked at. They're so pretty. Everything is brand new and modern. The kitchen faucet is beautiful, as is everything about the interior unit. The staff seem very nice. I think they're understaffed, but those they do have are very good. I never received a list of who to call with various issues, so I tend to go to the executive director. And she has been fantastic in her responses to me. The food I tried at the midday meal was surprisingly pretty good, although I would have liked to have seen more vegetables. One of the things I think is unique about Huntington Place is that even though they have some clients who seem farther along in dementia than my friend, ones who sit in their wheelchair and sleep all day, there is always a staff member who sits right there with them so they're not isolated. There is someone always there monitoring and checking on them. Which is an excellent feature. They also have a little general store on site, although we thought that's where you could get snacks. But we have yet to figure out how to access the snacks. . . I also appreciate that when there was a Covid outbreak, they shut down visitation for a brief time. Overall I think they do a great job, and we got in on a special that makes it an excellent value.

Review ofMilestone Senior Living Stoughton
4.0

The facility was very nice. It was brand new, sparkly, and clean. It just didn't have many people there yet and felt kind of vacant and not very homey. I think they'll get there. It just wasn't there yet. I liked that it was 5 minutes from my house, and I liked the people I interviewed there. It was a bit more expensive, but not totally out of our price range. It just didn't have the super homey vibe we were looking for.

When one of the staff did not work out so well they were on top of it and made sure to send out someone else to see if they would be a good fit. One of the people that were sent out even walked with my loved one and did exercises. The manager worked hard to make sure that my loved one had someone that worked well with him. he even came to my loved ones funeral and gave books to him when he was here.
