    The Gables at Winchester went above and beyond to provide a wonderful experience for my family. My mother-in-law was a resident here. We looked at 4-5 properties, but finally chose this one. The staff was friendly, the food was good, and there was a physical therapy room where she could receive her much needed PT. Everyone on staff was always kind and attentive, especially toward my mother-in-law; they went out of their way to ensure that she was comfortable and enjoying her time there. Unfortunately, she had some health issues and passed away earlier than expected. The staff members, including the administration, were amazing and supportive of our entire family. They treated my family with respect, and were very good to us during such a difficult time. We more than appreciate the attentiveness that the Gables' staff provided. Their commitment to their clients (whom they treated like family), and the care taken to provide such a consistently positive experience was remarkable. Thank you! Linsey P

    This is a beautiful place. It is like being on a resort or a cruise, the place is big enough and during the night when all the lights are on, You wonder where you are. The staff members are extremely helpful and attentive to the needs of the residents. And the residents seem to stay longer in this place only until they are in wheel chairs or walkers. The rooms are spacious, well decorated, clean and the food is great.
