    My mom is turning 95 this year, and has been at Somerford for a year already. She's been in assisted living for 3 years now, and Somerford Place is where she finally feels comfortable. It is such a homey, comfortable, easy environment for her, and she loves it! Granted, as she says, it's not her home, but, she loves the staff, and they seem to love her. It's great to see how well she is getting along with the other residents too. She may not always want to participate in the wonderful activities that are always available, but she's happy to have the option. The food is delicious (I've eaten with her several times), and healthy. Choosing Somerford Place was the best decision I could have made on her behalf. I am so impressed with everyone I've had the pleasure to talk with - the director, Lori, all the staff, and many of the residents as well. There used to be a monthly get-together for all family/caregivers, and I hope they start that again. It was a perfect venue to meet with others in similar care-giving situations. It is a wonderful, caring community.

    This is a very cozy and quaint memory care facility. It is quiet and tucked away, sweet and charming. The staff is very professional, compassionate and caring. I teach Fitness/Gentle Movement once a week, entertain for birthdays and other occasions as a pianist and vocalist and also do presentations on art and historical subjects. I love the residents, they are very well taken care of. Very clean, family-friendly & safe atmosphere for your loved ones.

    We were called in to to some cleaning/maintenance work here at Somerford Place. We were here for a full day on one day, then for 4 hours on another day. My helper and I let the staff know how much we appreciated seeing how loving and caring the staff was to the residents there. We truly appreciated seeing this! Please continue doing this to those there that need this kindness! It appears that those that work here are trained in having a Positive Mental Attitude and are actually applying this council.

    While visiting my uncle from out of state I was impressed at the compassion and care that my uncle received. Everyone knows him by name and I was able to enjoy lunch and activities with him. The executive director, nurse, and care giving were up dance with the residents and having so much fun. It was good to see my uncle enjoy these simples things in life. Highly recommended and looking forward to the next visit.

    While visiting my uncle I was very impressed with all the activities your facility offers. My uncle really enjoys living there and calling it his home. I met the new executive director, nurse and new business office manager. They were very kind and took the time to answer all my questions. I would most definitely recommend Somerford Place.
