I visited this facility

We visited Boylston Place at Chestnut Hill for my dad. It was a very nice facility. It seemed really great. Their staff also was very nice. It just wasn't so much assisted living and it was more like a retirement community. There was not as much assistance offered there. We just thought that with my dad's particular needs, he was going to need more assisted living.

Boylston Place offers luxury apartments for both independent living and assisted living appropriate residents. It's adjacent to Epoch of Chestnut Hill, a skilled nursing facility and shares a courtyard and some amenities. One of the advantages of being at Boylston Place is that residents are given priority at Epoch Skilled Nursing and Rehab. I've referred clients there and have visited a number of times, so I know it well. The facility initially served a mostly Jewish population, but now there is more diversity among the residents, and the programming is diverse and inclusive as well. It's located in the Brookline/Newton area in Chestnut Hill. It's within walking distance of shops and a movie theater, but it's right off a main road and a little distance from public transportation. Parking is an issue in the area generally, but they offer valet parking. Boylston Place was built about 15 years ago and has 48 units. It was intended to be a high-end, premiere facility, and it still is. It's exclusive, with comparable costs. Each unit is elegantly furnished, using high-end furnishings and materials and has a full galley kitchen. The staff works hard to cater to each resident. This is particularly evident in the dining service. They have a special sound loop that allows residents to change the setting on their hearing aids in the on-site movie theater, to hear the soundtrack without interference and limo service for doctor appointments, shopping, other errands or trips out of the facility. The staff has been very stable, with little turnover, and they're quite attentive. They have RN service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Many of the residents also have private attendants, with the expense paid by the individual resident, which makes it possible for them to age in place for a longer time. The food is excellent. It's restaurant-style, 4-star dining. They have both a seasonal menu and meals made to order, and are open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. They also have a high-end activities program that includes a fitness trainer five days a week to staff their fitness center.
