I visited this facility

American House East I was a very nice facility. My sister and I first went in, and we both wanted to move in. Actually, this one was very nice because they had a big woodworking room for the men or the women, and they had a big craft room with sewing machines and all kinds of stuff. That is my sister and I. We do a lot of that kind of stuff. They even had a ceramics room with a kiln. The rooms were very nice. At this place, the residents were more interactive, they seemed more with it, and they were enjoying themselves more. I just liked the things that were available for the residents to be able to do. Not the outside activities, but things in there that they could get involved with. In a lot of the other places, it is like you have to go out to get involved, but in this one, it was more internal than it was external.

America House East Senior Living is outstanding. It is the cleanest place I have ever been to. The community rooms are large, very well-lit, very clean, and great seating. The apartment is very clean and roomy and has everything one needs including a safe bathroom. Every staff that I have run into has been concerned about my father, they take good care of him, they answered all my questions, and -- in short -- they have been very impressive. The staff is very warm and friendly, and even when I walk through the place now, the people in the community who live there chat with me, and I appreciate that as well. I have been very impressed. The staff was very helpful. They made it very comfortable for all of us, I think that they take good care of him, watch over him, and they made it easier for us to make this decision and for me to feel comfortable because I needed to find a place that allows you to feel comfortable with your parent in there or that he'd make any friends. He is being fed and is living in a clean environment with people who care about making him feel he is very important.

I visited this facility

I picked American House East I Senior Living for myself although I'm not going there yet. They offer three meals a day and entertainment like cards and bingo. I know that they have a bus that takes the residents to the grocery store if they need to, and then they would also take you to your doctor's appointment.

We do offer those amenities, plus so much more -- including fun activities and events scheduled by our Life Enrichment Director. We look forward to having you move in here. If you have any questions before you do so, please don't hesitate to call me!

I visited this facility

We went to American House and the facility was nice. The programming seemed really good. The dining room was way off on one side of the building and the rooms she showed us was the other, just way too much walking for my mom to be able to get around as much as she would need to do. I just thought it was too big. The staff was fine.

Provider Response

Thanks for leaving your feedback, Carolyn. I understand your concerns about your mom being able to maneuver around the community; if you would like to give me a call personally, I'd be happy to talk to you about our options for her. We have staff on site to assist with escorting our residents if needed. I'd love for her to be able to enjoy all of our activities and events here!

The home was very nice based on my expectations being rather low for this assisted living home. I walked in and they greeted me very friendly and showed me where my moms friends room was. On the way to the room i noticed that every one there was happy and i didnt see any of the people frowning. The staff was great and that was probably my most positive comment about the whole place. As i walked in her room i noticed that the rooms were very tidy and some where id like to live at when im older. She spoke to me about how the food there was not that good but the customer service was great to her. We walked around to the cafeteria so i could get a bite to eat with her and some coffee while i was there. the food was not as bad as she stated and they still held great service in the cafeteria. But this was an easy 4 out of 5 stars in rating on this assisted living home

Our experience with American House East was generally positive. The apartments for residents were adequately sized and generally clean. The food seemed enjoyable for the residents with lots of dietary options. The activities provided to residents who were able to participate seemed like good enrichment, and I liked the mobile doctors/nursing staff and hair care center. The staff were friendly aside from a few minor incidents. One such incident was indicating that my relative residing here "complained too frequently" or that she had made excessive demands. Considering she suffered from severe dementia, which the staff knew, I do not feel it was appropriate for the employees to convey their annoyance with my family, who had turned to this place because we needed help with that very thing. Also I feel that she sometimes was left in her wheelchair in odd places that did not provide her with good visual stimulation; for example, instead of staff leaving her in front of a window, I would find her facing the wall. But overall I feel the staff was competent for the level of care she was receiving.

Provider Response

We want to make sure we do all we can for you and your loved one so please call when you get a chance, or stop by my office. My door is always open.

Sincerely, Fran Marable Executive Director (586) 776-8500
