Mom lived at Chelmsford Crossings for almost a month, but unfortunately her memory issue was a little bit too much for them to handle, so she couldn’t stay there. We generally like the facility. The rooms were really nice. The activities were fine; she attended crafts and exercise classes. It’s all very good.

My 87 year old mother spent 30 days at this facility as part of her rehabilitation from a broken hip. It provided an excellent transition between the hospital and her return home. The staff is very large and friendly and the supervision is thorough. There are more than a dozen activities each day for the residents in a wide variety of areas. My mother made numerous friends during her short stay and was made to feel very welcome. Fortunately, my mother has regained enough independence to return home. However, should the need arise in the future, both she and I would welcome the opportunity to return.

Chelmsford Crossings seemed very nice. The amenities and the people seemed nice also. I thought the staff was pretty impressive. I know they had a lot of activities, but I don't remember which ones. I walked through the dining room, but I didn't stay for lunch, and the room was very pleasant. The rooms seemed to be on the small side, but I think they might have been bigger than I thought.

We need someone to look after my elderly father for about a week and most places don't offer that. However, Chelmsford Crossings has that. It was located conveniently for us. It was closer and in a better location than most of other places. Everything was great and wonderful in this facility. It was also very clean. I saw one efficiency room and it was very nice. It was furnished very nicely. It had all the amenities that anybody would need.

Chelmsford Crossing was an exceptional assisted living facility. It was everything we were looking for in a placement for our loved one. The facility itself is absolutely beautiful. Everything about it seems to be finely decorated and carefully placed to make the atmosphere homey and welcoming. The entire main common area seemed fresh and updated, and we saw many residents sitting in smaller groups and enjoying company. We also were able to see the guests enjoy a piano entertainer while we were there, which seemed very popular with upbeat music and folks joining in to the songs. The individual residence units were spacious, with large windows providing lots of light. The dining room was well appointed and the meal we enjoyed during our visit was definitely above what we had experienced from other assisted living facilities. The staff was attentive and available to answer all of our questions, and took special care in making us feel well-taken care of during our visit. All in all, Chelmsford Crossing was really a step-above the other assisted living facilities in the area and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing assisted living in the Merrimack Valley.

As far as care and the overall experience of the facility, we could not be happier with the care my great grandmother received. She was mostly self sufficient, but needed help in things like socializing, remembering to take medication and just general personal care, safety, and security. The staff was mostly friendly, always willing to make conversation and taking good care of the residents. It felt more like a home than a "facility" that offered assisted living. There was always adequate medical staff, and dedicated staff on hand to help my great-grandmother with whatever she needed, ample day trips, crafts, activities (bingo, aerobic classes, movie nights, family nights etc), and grounds to just relax at. The one negative aspect of the facility was moving in and out of it, the staff was unclear as to what the procedures/rules were and it was hard to meet the guidelines of things (since we'd never done anything like move someone into assisted living before) it caused some issues, at first, with residents. Overall, I would recommend Chelmsford Crossing in chelmsford to anyone in the area considering an assisted living facility.

The staff at Chelmsford Crossings is excellent....very caring, and most of very reliable and competent. The food is very good; the atmosphere is most welcoming; this is a place where "everyone knows your name".

I have indirect experience with Chelmsford Crossings. My grandmother was a resident there for 2 years and lived in both a single room and eventually lived with a roommate. They provided laundry services and medication reminders as well as breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the residents. The people who came into my grandmother's room to give her the daily medications she needed were always very cheery and seemed to care for each of the residents. When you walk in you are greeted by a secretary who is also very cheery and directs you to sign into the building. Other than that you can pretty much do whatever you want with the resident you are visiting. They have a TV room, some outside areas, a game room, and a calendar for each month that has daily activities such as trips to Walmart or finger nail painting. Chelmsford Crossings is a great place.
