Recent reviews of Independent Living in Norwalk, CT
The Fountains at RiverVue in Tuckahoe, NY
4.0

It's a lovely community because the residents are fairly active and cognitively sharp. The dining can be improved. The food choices could be improved. The offer trips and activities. They offer exercise and bingo as well as other other options for activities. They do good with transportation for their residents. The staff are lovely and very helpful.

The Bristal at East Northport
4.5

The staff at the East Northport Bristal is always kind. They always have a smile on their faces and are genuinely sweet and loving to my mom. The facility is ALWAYS spotless and beautiful to live in or visit. The only area I see occasional improvement for is the food. It is not always hot and more fresh veggies needed. The personal care and overall facility is excellent.

Carriage Green at Milford
5.0

Mom has been at Carriage Green for three years and she is very happy. The staff is so friendly and warm and truly cares about their residents. The community is very cozy and always clean. The residents eat their meals in the dining room that looks into the courtyard. They have many activities including games, crafts, daily social hours, music, movies, etc. I live in another state and the staff always keeps me informed as to what is happening in the Community. I feel so confident that my Mom is being well taken care of. When we visit, we are always welcomed with friendly faces and they all feel like family! I highly recommend Carriage Green to care for your loved ones! With COVID, it has been a very difficult year for nursing homes and assisted living communities. The Carriage Green Team has followed all state protocols and has gone out of their way to keep our loved ones safe and healthy!
