I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
My mom has been at Gorham House for three years. She's started out in the independent plus unit and the end of last year, she had to go to rehab. Then she went right from rehab to the assisted living and next week she's going to the Alzheimer's unit. So, she's been in four units. In all four units, I have to give them 5 stars. I never had a negative experience. Everybody has bent over backwards. They're friendly, helpful and have mom's best interest at heart as well as mine. I also have to point out that every staff member in that Gorham House addresses every resident by their name and makes them feel like family. They're just so always supportive and open to listen to your concern. I was concern about the tub and my mom falling that they immediately put in a shower. I mean they were just so on it all the time. I also think the nurses are in competition in who could be the sweetest. I just love them.
All day long they have somethingtoo. Of course, with my mom's Alzheimer's, she doesn't join in on all the activities. Every day they have listings of activities for the residents. In addition, my mom is very happy with the food. She never had any complaints about it at all. I have eaten there a couple of times too. The food is good and has a good variety. They have the option of eating in their rooms if they're not feeling good but of course that's nothing probably out of the ordinary. The dining room is lovely. It's carpeted with table cloth linens. I'm so blessed my mom is there.

I visited this facility
Gorham House and the staff were very nice. They had different levels of care, from independent, to assisted, to memory care. They had a nursery school on the same campus, so the older adults can see the younger kids. They had a nice dining room. It seemed like a very engaged community.
