I visited this facility
When my mother's illness got worse, and I knew I couldn't take care of her myself, we had to start looking at homes. We had looked at a few places before The Whitney Center but none really jumped out at us as being a place where my mother would be happy and well taken care of. When we first entered The Whitney Center I was very impressed by how much it looked like an upscale apartment building, the sort of classy place my mother always wanted to live in. My mother was very happy with the decor of the lower floors, and before we got a tour of some of the rooms, our guide took us to dinner in the dining area. The waitstaff was all very friendly and well dressed, and though they did not have the same rapport with my mother as they did with the other residents they treated her just as kindly. There were a lot of options for dinner and the filet mignon that my mother chose was perfectly cooked. She was very happy with the dinner. The residents too were friendly and very welcoming. For the last part of our tour we viewed the rooms on the top floor and there was a lovely rooftop garden area open to all the residents. The rooms were very spacious and came with full kitchens. Our guide told us about events that the center held every week, movies and music, and how they scheduled trips to the town center and the New Haven downtown area. We left that day with a very good feeling about The Whitney Center, and though we've been touring a few other places, I think The Whitney Center is the one we'll come back to.
