Kirkwood Corners in Lee, NH
4.4

The community is very clean and neat. The staff is very nice and friendly and the food is amazing and tastes so good. They have lots of activities available also. I would recommend this community to others based on my experience.

Holiday Kittery Estates
2.5

We chose Kittery Estates because they had availability immediately and they were needing to move as soon as possible. My sister has a 2 bedroom so the size is ample. I think the food could use improvement, they serve the same things over and over so they need more variety. They do charge extra to take the food to the apartments, so she has been cooking herself instead.

Harmony Homes By the Bay in Durham, NH
4.7

I honestly can not understand why someone would say that they walked in Harmony Homes By the Bay and thought it was dark and dirty. The opposite is true. After experience with countless nursing/assisted living facilities, I chose for mom to live here, both of us could not be happier! It’s bright, friendly, new, clean and has beautiful bay views from the community rooms. Harmony Homes By the Bay is a well thought out architectural gem that well represents the four seasons in Such a charming way. Resident rooms & community/dining areas are arranged around a wide, well lit walk way & central courtyard. It’s a big loop making it tough for people with compromised memory to get hopelessly lost. Nursing stations are hidden, easing stress on residents. I visit most every evening and help my mother prepare for bed. I know most of the residents and can say that as a whole they are happy. Lots of activities but plenty of independence if people wish it. My daughter volunteers to host karaoke night twice monthly and everyone loves it. Mom (92) has a wonderful group of friends. They call their rooms ‘their apartment’, which is what it is to them. Like anywhere, what these people want first and foremost is frequent communion with their loved ones. Like anywhere, people decline without that love. Like anywhere, staff may come and go, people may call out, temporarily disrupting the rhythm of care. But here at Harmony Homes by the Bay even the residents who rarely get visitors, seem to me, a little happier and consider the staff and fellow residents closer to ‘family’ than I have personally witnessed in other facilities.
