I visited this facility

As a new provider in the area it was a pleasure to meet with Eric and tour the facility. It has such a nice home feeling that is so important to many people. It does not have that "institutional" feel to it. The residents have the ability to sit and relax in the living room with a nice large screen TV, enjoy the view of the river and the peace and quiet that comes with all the comforts of home. It's a difficult decision/transition for many families having to place a loved one in a facility that has the ability and capability to treat them with the care, respect and nurturing that is needed. Just like being home.

I am VERY impressed with Rubin & Thompson as well as it's owner Eric Rubin. I toured the facility as a preliminary visit given my mother in law's family history with Alzheimer's as I live close by and this home could become an option for us in the near future. I wanted us to be prepared. Not only was I impressed with the perfectly landscaped grounds, but more importantly, the fact that it is at the end of a very quiet street, has coded exits and entrances, but the STAFF IS OUTSTANDING! I spent a few hours there over the course of a few visits and experienced some meal and activity times and I was just so impressed by how "at home" we felt there. Rubin & Thompson is exemplary compared to other "facilities" we've seen and experienced with other relatives in the past.

The owner/director has good intentions but in my judgement, misguided in thinking that what a resident "wants" to do is fine, as apposed to what they should do. I'm speaking of the example given to me from the director. If they want to sleep for the night where they lay, whether it be on the couch or on the floor. Whatever makes them happy. Dementia sufferers do not have cognitive reasoning. In certain circumstances their wants cannot be allowed. I did not find in my visit that the director had a true understanding of the disease.

Rubin & Thomson assisted living is located on a quiet street in Saugus, MA. I am not employed by the assisted living facility. I have visited Rubin & Thomson several times this year to perform nursing assessments on a patient who receives homecare nursing services from the homecare agency I work for. Rubin is a small assisted living that has a homely feeling. Residents seem to interact very well with staff. Balanced meals and snacks are served regularly. My patient seems very comfortable. I would recommend Rubin & Thomson to seniors who prefer living in an assisted living facility that feels less like an institution.
