The Hearth on James was very pleasant. There seemed to be a lot of old people there. The unit I saw was nice but smaller than what I would want. The dining area was decent. They had a salon and a library. They gave me a lot of information, so that was certainly good.
The Hearth at Greenpoint is a great place. The staff and the management are super. My dad stayed there for a month and liked the food. The staff was more than adequate. The management helped in every possible way. It was a really good experience.
The Hearth on James was a nice spot. It's a little small but more than adequate. They had all the amenities that you would need there and a lot of activities. Every hour there's something different to be done, like cards, walking, bingo nights, and buses that would take you anywhere you want to go, like shopping centers, Target, Walmart and casinos once a month. It's really good.
My mom was at The Heart at Stones Crossing – Keepsake memory care unit. Overall, our experience was fine. She had a nice room, and the staff took good care of her, although she wasn’t there very long. The memory care unit's atmosphere was fine. They had a nice dining room and a nice area for the residents to sit and do exercise. Food was so-so, but Mom didn’t eat much. The staff were very professional, accommodating, and did their best to help us. It worked out fine.
The Hearth at Glastonbury was beautiful. The gentleman that toured me around was very good, and knowledgeable. It was not a hard sell. He answered all my questions.
It was a new facility; so everything is clean. I thought the room-size was good, and I liked the fact that they have a program every half hour, a cognitive stimulating activity, and then for a half hour they would do a more physically stimulating activity before slipping back to cognitive and physical. This is in the memory care unit. They're very limited with what they can do, but at least they're not just sitting there staring into space. They have a variety of activities. When I was there, no one was in their room. They were all in the common area with a staff member doing a cool activity with them, so that was good.
The food, and the dining area was good. This is just the memory care facility that I am focused on. They got the same food as the other part of the facility, but obviously it's a locked unit. They're assisted more on feeding, but the food looked good to me.
The Hearth at Glastonbury was so formal and rigid. The staff was very good and seemed very happy, but it was a bit too much for me. You can do your own laundry and stuff, which was nice, and I thought that was a good thing. They were all very gracious and very nice. They all seemed very happy there, but there were a lot of rooms with people sitting there and looking out the windows in a daze, and I don’t want to become that person. The community is closer to our kids, though.
The tour at The Hearth at Stones Crossing was excellent. Everything was very good. We really liked it a lot. The staff was excellent. I’ve been there three times, and every time they had something going on just for the residents, so I would say they were very active. We were very impressed with the facilities.
I visited The Hearth on James. Everything was excellent. I really enjoyed it. I talked to some of the people that lived there who really enjoyed it too. They had a multitude of activities on the calendar. I saw residents eating without complaints. The staff seemed engaging and friendly, and there was a lot more seniority and less turnover. I liked the décor and the table settings in the dining area.
I visited The Hearth on James. The tour of the facility was good, and the person was very informative. I would say some of the rooms seemed small. They needed to update the wallpapers or change it, and some of the stuff needed to be refurbished. The bathroom cabinets and the countertops needed upgrading, too.
When April arrives, I will be celebrating my first year at The Hearth. I came to The Hearth because I have five doctors in Glastonbury. The Hearth bus is a tremendous help getting to appointments. Another plus is having the meals timed are they are. I am an early riser so breakfast at 7:30 is perfect for me. I enjoy things that stimulate my mind. I look forward to Think More, our poetry workshop and horticulture programs. It is so important to get out and participate in something. The staff are great. I enjoy living at the Hearth.
Upon visiting The Hearth at Franklin, I found the facility to be impressive and the staff very knowledgeable, caring and friendly. The activities offered are outstanding. Everything from billiards to Netflix night. The residents are encouraged to not only strengthen the bodies but minds as well. The residents seem very well cared for and happy in the beautiful surroundings.
