We went to the Gables of Kent, and it was very nice; they just did not provide end of life care -- which I wanted some place where I wasn’t going to have to move her again. The rooms were very nice and clean. The staff was as nice as they could be. The food was good too; I have no problem at all with this facility.

I visited Kent Ridge with my family to find a place for my grandmother to stay. To start, the facilities are very nicely kept. The decor is homey and calming and the overall atmosphere is very nice. We had the opportunity to see many individual rooms and common area, as well as the outdoor space. All were very nice, but we found the individual rooms to be on the small side especially when taking walkers and wheelchairs into consideration. The outdoor area, especially the garden, was very nice. We were able to stay for a meal and found that the food was up to par. The meal was very hot and actually quite fresh, we even got to meet one of the cooks. The staff left a little to be desired. While some staff members were very friendly, others were just plain rude. Even if they were having a bad day, they should put that aside when coming to work. I found the other residents were very welcoming. Overall, I could see my grandmother staying here and would like to considering its location is very close to me. I hope this review for Kent Ridge at Golden Pond helps.

Everyone was incredibly kind. It felt more like visiting a luxurious hotel rather than an assisted living facility. The caretakers treated each other and the residents like family. The facility provided tons of activities for the residents and their families. It was a great experience.

my grandmother lives in this facility and it is a very nice place it is very clean and the aids are friendly there are lots of activities and games that the residents can take part in they are quick to respond if someone needs help with anything at any time of the day they even have their own award winning chef that makes all of the meals and it seems rare to find assisted living homes with very good food they have a lot of various rooms where the residents can sit and talk amongst each other or watch television and take part in other activities, another nice thing that they offer is physical therapy they can help any residents that have recently had any type of surgery or injury get their strength back and get back to what they're used to doing overall this is a great choice if you are looking for a nice assisted living establishment

Friend or relative of resident
My great-grandmother was moved through a few facilities when first diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Kentridge became the most ideal because of its central location to my family. Alzheimer's is a challenging affliction, especially when you're forced to bear witness to it at a place like Kentridge where it overwhelms most residents. It was honestly quite shocking to even sit in the room with her surrounded by so many ailing people. However, I support the staff members and on-hand nurses at Kentridge for always being near. While it's uncomfortable to have an unresponsive relative you've known for most your life, it's truly a blessing to find a responsive caregiver you've just met, and to know that they'll be there for your loved one. I can't say I'm always happy with the conditions or the meals offered, but I'm most likely biased as I'm one of the lucky people who are just visiting. Kentridge was affordable and kind to my family, and I have much faith in them.
