I Visited This Facility
Somerford House & Place of Newark was set up a little differently than other facilities. They have little groups there and small dining rooms in each wing rather than a big dining room in one place. However, my parents are looking for a more modern place, but it's very well done and it's a very nice place. If you need more attention, they'll give it to you in your room, and you don't have to move to a different place. They bring in companion animals, and they have trips to church and to the library. They have a whole calendar of events. There are plenty of things to do. There are also regular lunches and regular visits out and they even do plays occasionally, and other things that my Mom is interested in. They serve three meals a day. The staff is all nicely dressed and pleasant. It was clean and looked nice, but it was an older building.
