I visited this facility

The food at Somerford House and Place of Newark is pretty good. The staff was very nice during my visit. They have activities for men and women, like cards, bingo, and music, and go out on trips to WalMart or to lunch at different places. They sometimes go to the casino. I would like them to take the visitors on a tour of the entire facility and not just the apartments and the dining room.

Mom is in Somerford House. It is closest to our home. One of the things we like is the cleanliness and the appearance of the place. It was very nice and clean. There are a lot of residents sitting in the common area, and everything is well-maintained. My mom has dementia issues, and instead of having one large dining area that sometimes can be a little overwhelming, they have a smaller dining area for 15 people, and that appealed to us. We have lunch there with my mom, and the food is very good. They have a menu, so the residents can choose their own meals. There are a lot of entrees. They make homemade soup and homemade desserts every day. Everything is very good and presented very nicely. The staff speaks to the residents by name. They have 4 or 5 things for her to do. They have arts and crafts, bingo, and bocce ball. They also have exercise programs. They have different ones for different days.

We have placed my dad in Somerford Place. He has been there for three weeks, and we are very pleased with it. They are very friendly and accommodating. Everything my dad needs, he asks for, and they are right there with it.

Somerford House was nice but I wasn't as impressed by it. It could be that we were going on a Saturday and the lady that showed us around was shutting up the food facility so she might not have known. She was very nice and we had a nice visit there. The rooms were a little smaller but it was just assisted living. It was very homey. The dining facilities were small rooms. It was maybe four or five people per room so that each little section had its own little dining room. Mom liked it. She had a friend who lived there and she was very impressed by it. It was a few years old but I thought they kept it up nicely. There were more people sitting around in their wheelchairs in some of the open areas. They had a bingo game going on also the one time I was there.

The staff at Somerford were very good and helpful. They had a lot of activities. The food was great. However, the room that my parents were staying now was bigger than the rooms in Somerford.

Somerford House doesn't provide the medical care in between but it does have the Alzheimer's care. You would have to go somewhere for other kinds of care you need. I don't think their setup is what my uncle needs right now because I'd rather he stay in the same place. Regarding activities, it's nice that residents also go out on all kinds of trips.
