Brand new facility (though clearly managed by an experienced team), extremely clean and upscale without feeling too fussy. The rooms were relatively spacious with good-sized closets and modern bathrooms, though the showers were fairly small. We toured primarily the secured "Currents" floor (moderate-to-late stage dementia) and were extremely impressed by the connection staff had with the residents (greeting each other by first name, lots of smiles and affection). The facility allows someone to age in place - so barring any extreme nursing requirements, residents would not have to move into a skilled nursing facility. Residents appeared to be extremely engaged (on various levels) with personalized activities, a visiting pet for therapy, word games, etc - multiple activities happening, but it didn't feel too busy or potentially overwhelming for a dementia resident. We didn't taste the "farm-to-table" food, but by reputation it's amazing. They also pride themselves on having an RN onsite 24/7, and a "brain center" where residents work with computers that have special programs for cognitively impaired residents. Overall, the community felt incredibly welcoming - I would have no concerns about my mom living here. It's definitely on our short list.

Maplewood at Strawberry Hill, as a facility, looked satisfactory. The place seemed a little bit too quiet to us though. It was fine in terms of cleanliness; it was alright. We had lunch there and lunch was fine. I also thought that the staff was nice. However, we weren't terribly impressed with this place.

Maplewood at Strawberry Hill is a lovely facility and it is brand new. The design is much more conducive to seniors and I like the arrangement of their apartments. And of course, it's brand new so that definitely makes a big difference. The staff were very helpful although I didn't really interact with very many people. Some staff that walked by said hello. We have friends there and they said the food is very good. Their rooms, the windows are high enough that you can put furniture it. The walls also have windows so people can bring more of their furniture with them. And because it's new, you got new carpet, new bathroom and that makes a difference.
