The Kensington's downtown location is a definite plus, however lack of adequate parking around the facility is a concern. In fact, the Kensington's own shuttle van must park on the sidewalk in order to pick up and drop off residents. Inside, the decorum is warm and homey, with old wood furniture and rich carpets throughout. Overall, the feeling is quite elegant and not as "industrial" as some other places I visited. Meals and served at family style tables and residents may order off a menu, which changes regularly. The staff was very friendly and attentive to both me and my mother. They did a wonderful job of showing us around the facility, and also privately discussing costs and payment options. Typical assisted living services such as medication disbursement, laundry and cleaning services are provided. Overall, I was quite impressed with the Kensington and think it would make an excellent next home for my mother.

About a year ago, my family and I toured The Kensington to see if my grandparents would like it or not. It's located in a neat old building in downtown Beatrice, but my grandparents didn't seem to like that there was a lot of traffic nearby. The facility seemed clean and nicely decorated, my grandparents liked the fact that they could go to the dining area instead of cooking if they wanted to. The staff was really friendly and professional and answered all of my grandma's questions. It didn't have the typical "nursing home smell". The residents we saw looked happy and busy. The apartment itself was roomy enough for visitors but my grandma thought it was a little small. I think the only real issue with the facility is that it isn't very scenic. If it were out in the country I think my grandparents would have preferred that. In the end, they decided they wanted to wait a while before doing assisted living and will continue living in their house.
