Greystone Farm at Salem
4.2

When I first approached my dad with the idea of assisted living, he was more open to it than I expected. Greystone Farm gave us the tour, and they spent a lot of time explaining things. At the end, he said "Yeah, I can see myself living here." Which completely surprised me. From the day he moved in until today, almost every day he tells me how much he likes it there, or how great this or that person is. I've been very happy with them and don't feel guilty about leaving him him here. He is so much better off. He's not alone, and he is very well taken care of. He really likes the aides and especially the nurses. His only complaints have been small and center around the food. He tells me they give him too much food. And then with Covid when food is delivered to his room, his CocaCola comes as a can of generic version, whereas in the dining room, it's true fountain CocaCola. But we can easily work around those things! Other than that, he is very happy there. It has been the prefect solution for him. People are in and out checking on him all day, but he doesn't feel like he's being watched. He has his own apartment, so when people come in, it's like a mini visit, and then they go. It has been wonderful for me being close by to Dod so I can do the same, drop in for a moment as often as I want or need to. I think it's very expensive, but he's getting all of these services that are so beneficial. And his happiness and wellbeing is the most important thing to me. He doesn't do a lot of the activities, but he really enjoys when they bring in different musicians - pianists violinists, etc. It has been a really great move for him and everyone in our family.

The facility is beautiful, the staff is very friendly and they communicate very well. However, they could improve on their orientation schedule for those who have mild dementia. Not for the memory care unit, but for regular assisted living.

Traditions of Wayland
4.7

My dad was determined and prepared to remain in his Wayland home. He moved to Traditions of Wayland in December for a two month “respite”, not long after a bad fall and several broken bones required hospitalizations and weeks in rehab. When the Traditions Resident Care Director, came to his discharge planning meeting I knew he would be in good hands. [name removed]’s intelligence, compassion, expertise and kind sense of humor inspired trust and optimism. Her resident care staff are especially cheerful, responsive, respectful, skilled and kind. I look forward to seeing them whenever I visit. About halfway through his “temporary” stay at Traditions, my dad decided to become a longer term resident and now lives in a nice apartment furnished with his favorite belongings. He has developed friendships and relationships that are meaningful and bring a new kind of purpose to his days. I am continually impressed by the quality of care and assistance he receives. The staff is responsive, communicative, cheerful, thoughtful and dedicated. From welcoming and informative greeters at the front desk, to the kitchen staff and activity planners, administrators and maintenance staff, everyone is dedicated to providing a pleasant and meaningful experience for the residents. I am grateful and proud to feel part of the Traditions of Wayland community.
