Avita of Stroudwater in Westbrook, ME
5.0

They did try to take good care of my loved one. They offered daily activities and the community was clean. The food was good. My loved one was only there for a short time as we realized he needed more care than they were able to provide. They oversold themselves on the care that was available. They gave out incorrect information in regard to some programs that may have been available. I would recommend asking about the security at this community.

HarborChase of South Portland
4.8

For someone looking for light assistance or moderate help, I think it is an amazing facility. My loved one does need the highest level of care so my opinion is a bit jaded, but they really have been wonderful. It is a brand new facility and is super clean. The staff really are helpful, [name removed]] the admissions director especially was amazing and made the whole move in process easier. I would absolutely recommend HarborChase of South Portland to other families.

Stroudwater Lodge in Westbrook, ME
4.0

So far it has been a great fit for my mom at the Stroudwater Lodge. It is a new and beautiful community. It is the first one we toured and it had everything we needed. It is very convenient for my mom to get to her nearby Dr. appointments. Most of the time the communication is pretty good with staff members when I have questions or concerns regarding my mom's care needs. The staff takes good care of her and her care needs. The food is well-balanced but mom has special dietary needs and they are working with me so that she can get the proper nutrition. At this time mom is not able to participate in activities, but there is a resident nearby that they have become friends due to a shared family member. I would recommend Stroudwater Lodge to friends and family.
