Recent reviews of Independent Living in Newark, DE
Chestnut Ridge Wallingford

Recently, 6 days ago, my parents moved fr independent living to personal care at Chestnut Ridge. So far have had a positive experience. Clean, welcoming & good food too! My siblings & I are hoping our parents settle & Chestnut Ridge becomes their forever home.

Sunrise of Wilmington

I highly recommend this community for you or your loved one. They have a lot of activities to keep the residents busy and occupied. They have activities like singing, karaoke, puzzles, and more for the residents to do. They provide very good care for the residents as needed in the memory care department.

Merrill Gardens at West Chester

They're very easy to deal with. They listen to and help you with all of your issues and questions. They've gone out of their way to help my aunt. I'm appreciative of everyone there. They're also one of the most reasonably priced places that I found.
