Review ofManor At Market Square
4.4

We aren't sure how many activities they have now with the new variant but we do know they have movie nights, exercise classes in the mornings and occasionally the residents can go out on outings. Our loved one tends to be a picky eater so even a gourmet meal would get a complaint, but we think the food is totally fine. For everything they provide, and assistance with the medicine distribution we think the value for cost is good.

We chose Symphony Square because they were one of the highest rated facilities for dementia residents and they keep them safe and busy. The room sizes are perfect for her, she has a 1 bedroom apartment. They just started activities up again after covid and are doing great at keeping her busy. She loves the food, they are chef prepared meals. The location is very nice, not too far from the city. and I would recommend them t others who are looking.

My mother has been at Woodbridge Place for 3 years. We have had ups and downs throughout that period, but the new leadership team is second to none. The young lady at the front desk is friendly and helpful. Woodbridge has a whole different feel. [name removed] is attentive and returns calls promptly. The new nursing manager is knowledgeable and very calming. It’s so nice to know my mom is able to be out of her room and enjoying musical entertainment, bingo and other happenings with the activity people. I can only hope Mom is around for a number of years to fully experience and take advantage of all the positive things going on. I can sleep more peacefully knowing things Re on the right track.

The staff members so far have been wonderful, and the people who run the front desk are great. However the administrative staff has had some turnover on top of coping with covid and the laws in the staff, but they are still very careful. Anyone who has had interaction with our loved one so far has been wonderful. The physical therapist has been fantastic. Our loved one is very happy with the meals and dining service so far. No complaints so far about this community, our loved one says the staff are not workers but her friends and family.
