Review ofAshton Gardens Gracious Retirement Living

Review ofThe Woods at Canco
4.3

I am having a pretty good experience so far, no complaints as of yet, the community is kept really clean and the staff members have been very very friendly. The dining staff is a little slow at times because they are understaffed, but they are working to make improvements and our new chef has done a great job so far. The activities director is great, there are always great things going on and plenty of different outings to take.

Review ofHarborChase of South Portland (Now Open)
4.0

Our experience at HarborChase has been fine so far, but there has been high turnover of staff. They're having a hard time keeping staff, and I know a lot of it has to do with the pandemic. I've noticed differences in the staff the higher up you get. The day-to-day care staff and their direct manager are very good and very helpful. But once you go higher up, they don’t respond well.
