We did plenty of research in choosing a residence for our family member. Of all the places we checked into, Atria seemed like the best fit. We were not disappointed. Atria offers a balance of activities for socialization, fitness, recreation, and entertainment. The food is good and there are a variety of choices offered. The staff is caring and our family member has developed good personal relationships with both staff and other residents. The apartments, common areas and outside grounds are kept clean and are very pleasant. Although most of the area senior independent and assisted living facilities offer comparable services, we feel Atria offered the best and at the best value.

We had to take my husband’s 89 year old father to live with us when his wife died suddenly in October. After about two weeks of living with him, we realized that we were going to need help. We could not leave him alone because he was confused, lonely and becoming frail. So we contacted a few assisted living places and visited. When we got to Maplewood at Brewster, we knew it was going to be the right fit. From the first visit in October until now, [date removed], we couldn’t be happier. The facility and grounds are beautiful. The rooms are lovely. Our dad loves the food, and the staff is helpful, welcoming and friendly. Everyone worked extra hard through the pandemic to keep all the residents and staff safe, and we were informed of what was happening every step of the way. We can’t wait for activities to resume in full and look forward to many happy years at Maplewood.

We had a great experience with the general manager, who first interviewed us and was extremely nice. I think because of Covid, it was different than it would have been normally. My loved one was one of the youngest people there, and he wasn't particularly happy because of that. But he had a nice room of his own, his own bathroom, and a kitchen area. It was very clean. They would come in once a week to clean the residents' rooms. He was just unhappy because everyone was so much older than he was. He didn't care for the food, which didn't have much salt in it as it was geared toward elderly people with blood pressure issues. To me, it looked appetizing, and the menu choices looked good. There were not many activities due to Covid, although they had things like bingo. But they had stopped the outings and excursions. I thought it was quite expensive, especially when you consider extras for different a la carte care options - medication assistance, depends, showering, etc. But I don't know what other places are charging.
