Harmony Homes By the Bay in Durham, NH

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.

Carriage Hill Assisted Living in Madbury, NH

I believe that a review of assessment of any assisted living community is very difficult at this time. With the COVID19 pandemic, these facilities have encountered extreme difficulties-staff shortages, unusual sickness due to COVID and necessary lockdowns-residents isolation. The management/staff have done the best with the obstacles they have had to deal with.

Avita of Wells

Each and every one of their staff provided the excellent care that any family would want their loved one to receive. The staff at Avita cared for her as if she were their own loved one and made our family feel like a welcomed part of the community. Avita staff was actively trying to engage her in activities and provide her with support. We cannot thank Avita enough for caring for her as we would at home. The care provided at Avita was an essential piece that allowed my grandmother to pass in peace and in a place where she was without a doubt cared for until the end of her life.
