Recent reviews of Independent Living in Norristown, PA
Sunrise of Exton
2.8

Overall it was a decent place. Some things could be improved, but better than the homes that except Medicaid. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful, as with anywhere nowadays there were a few that did as little as possible. Our person often told me they would take forever to get her to the bathroom. I observed one aide who did everything possible not to get to the room, but that was one aide. Most were friendly and treated people with respect. For the $XX,XXX a month that my person paid, the aides weren't being paid enough and it reflected in their service. Otherwise it's better than [two community names removed]. When you arrived at the dementia floor you didn't get knocked out by the smell of urine like I did at [community name removed], and the staff pays way more attention to the patients than either [two community names removed].

Brandywine Senior Living at Senior Suites in East Norriton, PA
5.0

First, you need to see this facility. They did a major renovation and it looks so different. It has been modernized and looks amazing. My Mom has been at Brandywine for a few years. It is a tough decision to make when your loved one needs more care than what you can give. The apartments are roomy. The food is wonderful. There are so many activities that one will never get bored. My Mom is now on the Reflections-Memory Care Unit. The care and support that she receives is amazing. She is well cared for. The staff is so genuine and supportive to my Mom and family. Administration takes the time to talk with you and answer your questions. It is like an extended family. I am so happy with making the decision to move my Mom to Brandywine.

Friends Village in Newtown, PA
4.2

We chose this facility because I thought it would fit my brother-in-laws personality better. He is in a community where there are 3 or 4 suites, almost like a motel set-up. He has a dog so he is able to go out the front or back door, its more private and personal. His cottage is good sized, it has a bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchenette, we are happy with the size. He is entitled to one meal a day, and he has not had any complaints about the food. I would definitely recommend Friends Village. I could not ask for anything better for him.
