My Dad has been here for several weeks now due to being unable to move much of his body due to brain cancer. The staff is friendly and competent. The facility is clean. I noticed an unpleasant odor on the first floor of one of the attached buildings, but that kind of thing is probably unavoidable on their part. The rooms are small. They have air conditioning. There is WiFi. They play bingo frequently. They have a physical therapy department from which my Dad has benefited enormously. The food looks unappealing but it tastes better than it looks. The portions are small, so patients may want to bring in outside food if possible. Once my Dad's roommate complained that the staff were taking ages to respond to his call bell. For that, I deduct one star. Otherwise, this seems to be a pretty good place. Note: There is a potentially unsafe/dangerous situation at Orono Commons. Because patients use the nurse call bells for ridiculous things like demanding a special type of food, the staff at Orono Commons will take ages (maybe 30 minutes or so) to respond to the call bells. This means that if a patient has a genuine medical emergency, there may be no way to get the staff's attention.

My Mother went from Assisted Living eventually into Full Nursing care at Orono Commons over the past several months so we got to see the entire facility and all of the staff. We were extremely impressed with how efficiently the system worked, but most importantly we were extremely impressed with the care and attention offered by all of the staff at Orono Commons. The staff always treated her with respect and caring. The staff make this facility what it is - as much of a home and family as one could expect in a time of stress and emotion. Paul and Lyn

This place was terrible!!!! My mom was brought here last Thursday fresh out of a hospital stay with a new colostomy. If you rang the bell for help it took a half hour before someone would answer. On Saturday we requested the her colostomy bag be changed because it had been on 5 days and it was due to be changed and had started to leak! The male nurse with the cocky attitude refused to change it because he said his orders stated once a week even though it was leaking and our surgeon said to change it twice a week. When we tried to point it out to him his statement was, "well we do things different here then in Boston". So, after just learning how, I myself, her daughter, changed the bag. Upon doing so I noticed a problem and reported it to the nurse who said that it didn't look right but did nothing else about it. I then took it upon myself to call the Boston Hospital that she was recently discharged from and they directed me to take her to the emergency room which I did, myself. At the emergency room the problem became even worse and my mother was flown by helicopter back to Boston. What a nightmare! Please for the well being of your loved ones do not bring your family and friends here!!
