I was impressed with Ledgewood Bay at Milford. It's a large place, very clean, very accommodating, and would be ideal for somebody who does not have as severe memory loss as my friend. The dining area was fine. I saw both independent and assisted living, and I was satisfied with both places.
Ledgewood Bay was excellent, but my biggest quandary was that the room was not as low priced as quoted. Also, they did not offer me any special pricing. They had laundry, a spa, and a visiting doctor and nurse practitioner. They have tai-chi classes and chair yoga, but it was just too far for me to drive 45 minutes away.
