I had my parent in assisted living in Dominion Village. I wouldn't take her anywhere else. If they got five stars, they need ten stars. They have been so cooperative with me with anything I needed. I know it is a lot of money where I'm at now, but they were so nice. They say it is like a five star place, but they need ten stars. It is perfect. I don't know if you go past a ten, but they are a ten and above. The community is like family. The rooms are just as clean with antique furniture in it. It is not an updated thing, but it looks like an old room which makes people feel like they are home. They got community walk, bingo, cards, and movies at night if people want to watch. It is nice, and I can't say anything bad about it.

Dominion Village was very clean, but it was old and depressing. People shared bathrooms. The staff was very nice and excellent.

I love Dominion Village, but I don't have $4000 a month to pay for my mother to go. That was my favorite, and I would put her in that one before anything else. The people were very nice in there. It was small, clean, homey, and more like a family. The food was good. Everything was great, and the residents seemed happy.

My visit at Dominion was very good. The staff was excellent; they covered everything very well, I was very impressed. It’s a little older facility -- it had aged -- but they were clean, and the residents looked happy. I was impressed, and they looked very busy. My wife and I visited once, we took my father once, and there was a lot of interaction when my dad came; it was very nice.

My wife is already in Dominion Village. It has been there 20 some years. They take good care of their residents and they have good food there. The rooms are first class. The main problem with it is the air conditioning unit. It’s either too cold or too hot. It’s never just right. It doesn’t seem like they can do anything about it because of the way the thing was designed. Everybody complains about it. When you go to eat, you have to wear a coat or you’ll freeze to death. In my time, I had to wrap up with a blanket because but then when morning comes, it was hot and the only way I could get cool is get under one of the restaurants but other than that, the place is great. They finally put a fan in my room and that made it better. Over on the side where my wife is where they keep the people with dementia and Alzheimer's. It’s not as bad but the assisted living facility and where you eat is where the air conditioner is.

The main section of Dominion Village looked really nice, including the lobby, but when you went into the sections where the bedrooms were, they were dated-looking. Once you step out of the lobby section it's like you step back 30 years in time. The lady who runs the place is probably one of the nicest people I’ve talked to. She was really personable, and she told me everything from A to Z. The place, though, could do with an update, like some paint in the hallways or new wallpaper. It’s there, it’s livable, but it’s not really inviting, and it looks more like a nursing room than an assisted living place.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our community. While we pride ourselves on resident care and a home-like setting we recognize from time to time that our physical plant becomes dated. Some of the measures we have taken in the individual suites is to update flooring, light fixtures, bathroom cabinetry and hardware, window treatments and complimentary wall and trim paint colors. Many of our residents have also personalized their suites with painted accent walls, custom window treatments, custom cabinetry and custom flooring prior to moving in. We feel it is very important for our residents’ suites to have the personal touches that make them feel right at home and we will do everything we can to make that happen. If you are willing to do so, please reach out to me. We would love to have you back for a tour of our individual suites.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Stell, Executive Director, Dominion Village at Chesapeake

Dominion Village was very nice. The people were very nice and the staff was very helpful. The rooms were decent. The deluxe room was spacious. But I think they take advantage of old people. Personally, I think it's very pricey. I like that there were a lot of people in there, just like my mother, who were with walkers. Everybody is very friendly. It's a great facility.

It is very nice. It's too far from where we live. The people there were very, very nice. It's an older facility but it didn't bother me that much.

My Mother lived at Dominion Village for several years until her passing. I cannot say enough good things about the care she received there. I found Dominion Village to be a very clean facility (odor free!!!), nicely furnished and with a nice dining room. The food was very good as well. What really made this facility outstanding was it's loving and caring staff. I dropped in frequently and personally witnessed the way the staff treated the residents as if they were family. The nursing staff went out of their way to contact Doctors, arrange for medication to be administered and to make sure my Mom was comfortable. I first visited this facility at the recommendation of an EMR friend who said that if she had to choose an Assisted Living facility she would choose Dominion Village because of how organized they were whenever they were called their on an emergency. She was right... it is well run and the residents are very well taken care of there!

Dominion Village was nice but it's dreary inside and the buzzer kept going off. I was there for 5 minutes and had a headache because it kept going off. I just don't think they had that much planned activities. The rooms were like ridiculously small for two people and the bathroom was ridiculously large for them. They could use half that bathroom space to make the room better for the people. I do not think I would recommend it because the rooms and the closet were just not sufficient for someone to live in. However, the staff seemed real nice. They interacted with the people from what I saw which was nice.

When visiting this facility for the first time I was so socked as to how nice they treated my Great Grandfather. There was this one lady there who gave my grandfather extra attention. Which I really liked that because at first I was so scared to have him in a place like that with all the bad things that I have seen on the news. Well, my Grandfather has been here for almost two years now and I still have not ever had any problems. Matter of fact I visit my Grandfather every week and everyone there knows my name staff and other residents as well. It was funny just the other day, I asked my grandfather What would have been better for him to staying with my mom or at Dominion Village? He said Dominion Village because your mother complains to much and here I do not have to listen to that. One of the staff members there even laughed at my Grandfather. She told me that he was such a joy and was glad that he came to Dominion Village. I am just happy that all the people there are so friendly, loving and take care of my Grandfather The way that I would take care of him. If not even better taken care of than what I would have done.

My grandmother had been moved into Dominion Village several years ago and I was not sure about the whole process. The staff there was very good at handling the details and were very reassuring! With a week my grandma felt at home and was loving the sense of independence there. Upon further visits I was glad to see that the rooms were maintained well, the food was decent and the activities for the elderly there were wonderful! I would highly recommend Dominion Village for anyone looking for or having trouble deciding if a assisted living facility if right for their loved one. My grandma is happy, so I am happy!

I had an aunt in the assisted living facility. I thought the facility was very nice and clean compared to ones I been to in the past. My aunt said she loved her time their. She currently is staying with other aunt's home now in boston. The staff was very nice and helpful during her stay. The patients all seemed to enjoy their time at the facility. I would highly recommend this place to others.

Overall the facility was clean looking. So first impressions are good. The building are well kept and they still look like new eventhough they are about twenty years old. They have helped my friend so much. They offer exercises and different functions to keep the seniors active and involved. They also have an open door policy. That way the family and just pop in to see what is going on. The person that I know is fairly happy there but there is no place like your own house. The staff are very compassionate and they try to make the resident feel good. They promote independence and give the resident a freedom of choice. My friend is not in a bad state yet but if her health continues to deterioate, this place is well equip to handle her. They have several levels of care ranging from the independant elderly to the ones that need 24 hour care. I really like how this place is being ran.
