I Visited This Facility

The Barrington is about two blocks from my son's house. It was nice, and more modern. I didn't like the attitude of the staff, and it turned me off the whole place. The people were just sitting around, and they looked bored.

The Barrington was very nice and very clean. They had a pretty nice schedule. I only met one staff member who was very nice and very informative. They offered two meals and had a very nice dining area. They had buses to doctors' appointments, housekeeping, laundry, places to sit together with other people and chat, and bingo.

We placed Dad in the Barrington last month, and we're pleased with it. He's still getting used to having people help him. They have music, singers, and musicians every week, plus happy hours and sing-alongs. They have barbecues and a hotdog night coming up.

I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

The Barrington in Largo, FL, was recommended to us by A Place for Mom as an option for my parents. My wife and I visited The Barrington for a tour. We were greeted by Sherrie (Regional Supervisor, Tarantino Properties) for our visit. Sherrie was extremely knowledgeable & professional; a great representative for The Barrington. We also met Linda (Nurse Administrator) in order to describe the care needs required for my father. Linda was very understanding of my Dad’s needs and took the time to formulate a care plan for my father. Linda was extremely helpful with a great sense of humor. From the start, we were comfortable with The Barrington. The residents were happy, friendly and outgoing; we even spoke with a couple of them. We were provided with an overview of the facility (both assisted living & independent living) and walked the property. From the front desk staff to the caregivers, all personnel were professional, caring and friendly. Unlike the numerous other ALFs we visited in the Tampa, FL, area, The Barrington offers 1 bedroom apartments; not studios. This makes your “home” feel like HOME not just one room with a bathroom. The units even have small kitchens and screened covered lianas (porches). Very nice touch! The Barrington was very clean; very important to us and my parents. We knew from the time we walked in to The Barrington, this was the place for Mom & Dad. As a result, we scheduled a second visit for my parents to visit the property. My parents were pleasantly surprised with the beauty of the property; large facility surrounded by huge oak trees and even a swimming pool! If you have a vehicle, covered parking is provided; what a bonus. Again, we were greeted by Sherrie; she took the time to show my parents the grounds and treated us all to lunch. …..and a great lunch too! We met the chef and the food was really good. Our server, Jolene, was very personable and even though she did not know my parents, she joked with them and made them feel right at home. The Barrington has a Nurse Practitioner on site as well as a contractor providing on site physical therapy. My wife and I met all healthcare professionals and were pleased with all. How convenient; healthcare professionals on site and you don’t even have to get in the car to go anywhere. The Barrington has complimentary van service that meets everyone’s needs. In conclusion, The Barrington was the place we all decided would be “home” for Mom & Dad. My parents have been residents at The Barrington for about 1 month now and all is good. They have told me the residents are friendly and they like the staff. They have bragged how good the food is….very healthy options and if you don’t like healthy, then you can order a grilled cheese, hamburger or hot dog with onion rings. :o) Of course my parents are going through an adjustment but the staff at The Barrington have made Mom & Dad feel right at home. Since moving in, The Barrington continues to impress. On July 4, they had a cookout for the residents. They have happy hour one evening a week…..even took the residents to a local park for a picnic; also took the residents out for free slushy day offered by the 7-11 store. There is complimentary Wi-Fi offered in the lobby and basic cable tv (BrightHouse) is provided free of charge in each residents room. Bottom line – Mom & Dad’s home cannot be replaced but The Barrington is the next best thing.

I wasn’t impressed with the Barrington. There wasn’t much activity happening, and I didn’t see older people visiting and talking. They didn’t seem to be too organized.

I Am A Current/Past Resident

I have been a resident at The Barrington for several years and I am a widow. I am happy here, never lonely, very safe, with friends and a caring staff. The first time I walked into the Barrington I had a very warm feeling. The entire staff is very caring and helpful. I enjoy all the activities and social events that we have. I really enjoy the food; our chef does a great job. I feel that there is something for everyone to enjoy here at The Barrington. I have made some wonderful friends here with the residents and staff. The Barrington is a great place to live. I also enjoy our trips out to the beaches and parks. I am on the welcoming committee, serve at happy hour, and I go with the marketing team to do outreach. This is my home and the staff is my family.
