I Visited This Facility

Commonwealth Senior Living at Leigh Hall was OK, and the staff seemed nice. Unfortunately, the atmosphere was depressing. It just seemed like the people that live there were not happy. The staff members I met during my tour were good and has supposedly been working there for a long time. I saw the atrium, and it seems to be on the small side. It was a studio and it was just a small room with a bed and not a lot of space for a lot of furniture. The dining area looked nice too.

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

In July of 2014 my Mom passed away. Being the center of all of our lives, it was very hard on all of us, especially my Dad, having been married for 68 years. He wanted to remain in their home, so initiated a 24-hour In Home Care. His health started declining and with the increasing cost of In Home Care, a decision needed to be made on moving him to Assisted Living. I began a search in our area. When I first called Leigh Hall, my first contact was with Roshawn Foot’e-Scott. She was very informative about the facility and her concern for my situation prompted me to make an appointment and take a tour with my Dad. Having lived in his home with my Mom for 52 years, this decision was very hard on my Dad. From the moment we walked in the door and saw the little pineapple blackboard with “Welcome Finney Family” on it, our fears began to ease. There was an immediate connection with Starr Caulder, the Executive Director. Her compassion and knowledge took away any lingering fears. The interaction she had with her staff and residents clearly showed the respect and admiration they had for her. We signed up for an apartment that day and Dad moved in on December of 2014. Unfortunately, his health seriously declined and he passed away in January of 2015. His stay was short, but due to the caring staff, Dad and I were showered with love, compassion, and tender care, which meant everything to me and my husband each and every day we were there with him. My husband and I continue to visit Leigh Hall, and the “friends” we made there always bring positive memories as we continue to heal. Leigh Hall will be my FIRST recommendation to anyone seeking an Assisted Living Facility for their loved one.
