Review ofCambridge Village of Wilmington
4.8

I chose Cambridge Village because they offered more of what I wanted and was looking for compared to other places. It is very nice, everyone is friendly, and all the accommodations are great. The apartment sizes are good, I have a 1 bedroom and I really like it and it is spacious enough for what I need. I would definitely recommend them to others looking.

Review ofNew Haven at Little River
4.9

I placed my husband in New Haven's Memory Care unit. Their facility is clean, well kept and safe, and the rooms are quite large. However, their biggest asset is the wonderful kind and caring staff. They go above and beyond to make sure your loved one is well taken care of and feels loved. That means so very much when you can't be with them every day.

We chose Elmcroft of Southport because they had availability when we needed it. They were very easy to work with and welcoming to our family. They have a great personal service, the staff know everyone by name and seem to be very caring and positive. They are in the midst of changing management companies, we are hoping things stay as good as good as they are now. I would definitely recommend to others looking.

This community is so wonderful and the people are so very kind. I looked at a few communities in Wilmington and it is probably one of the best senior living communities in Wilmington. Looks brand new, smells cleans, looks very clean and the residents actually look very happy to be here. I would give this community a 10 in comparison to other communities in Wilmington that didn't seem to compare to the luxury of this particular community. Impressed with my overall first look.

This facility seemed a lot cheaper than the other ones we looked at, but there were hidden costs that we were not aware of until we were about to move my loved one in here. The rooms at this facility seemed to be pretty small and with the location I did not feel it was safe for my loved one who has some memory problems.

It's a very warm environment. The people are very polite and make you feel welcome when you come to visit your loved one, the same as they did on our tour. Mom quickly made friends. And the staff was really good to her. The food that I tried was good. The apartments are beautiful. She got the one that was really spacious, with two different areas - a kitchenette (with full sized fridge) and sitting area on one side, and a bedroom and bathroom on the other side. It's a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. It's very elegant, and that's exactly what Mom wanted.

This could be in part due to Covid, but the transition from start to finish was very confusing because we couldn't go in and see the room before we moved our loved ones in. So we had no idea what to anticipate. And then once we moved them in, it took a while to rearrange furniture and things like that. Because we weren't able to go in and meet the staff, we weren't able to discuss our concerns or our desires for our relatives from the get-go, or talk about the nuts and bolts of things. For instance, no one told us we would be responsible for providing soap, toothpaste, toilet paper, etc. There were a lot of those little things to iron out. That being said, the staff has been extremely responsive to all of our questions and concerns. It just took a good 2-3 months to really get settled in. And there are still little things to double check, but overall it's been a good experience. The one concern I have is the room itself is not all that neat and clean. There was dust in their room when they first moved in, and it's still there. The facility in general looks very neat and clean. It's just the rooms that haven't been up to my cleaning standards. But the woman at the front desk knows me by name. She's quick to help out when I ask or get me to the correct person. One of the personal aides has given me her cell phone number and said call anytime. Same with one of the laundry staff. The doctor on staff is very friendly and responsive. We're still trig to figure out the accounting online, but that's likely our issue. Overall, it has all worked out well. If we ask them to do anything, they do it, which has been nice. I really feel confident that our loved ones are well cared for. And my loved ones say they're showered with attention there. They've been content there right from the start. I've also appreciated that there is a base rate for the room, and then another rate for the level of care. So if you have two loved ones with different levels of care, they can stay together.
