The Wingate Residences of Needham & One Wingate Way
5.0

The facility is absolutely stunning. It's modern and clean. The staff is absolutely wonderful. It is truly a whole other level of senior living. The apartments are spacious. You can get full kitchens as well as two bedrooms. I would highly recommend the Wingate family to anyone.

Traditions of Dedham
5.0

From the first day that we visited Traditions of Dedham my friends and I felt very comfortable. There was a very welcoming feeling to the place. [name removed] met with the friends and explained every detail of the services that Traditions would provide. She never hesitated to answer our many questions and even anticipated some of the things we should know. We were given a complete tour of the facilities and met many members of the staff who would be helping our friend. Since moving into Traditions our friend has adjusted beautifully to her new apartment. She is enjoying meals in the dining room and has met new friends there. One of the biggest benefits is the opportunity for her to socialize with other residents and participate in the many activities offered. Traditions and its staff have offered her a new outlook on her everyday living. Once again, kudos to the entire staff but especially [name removed] who has gone out of her way to make sure our friend is adjusting well.
