Reviews of Traditions of Wayland
I am a longtime resident of Wayland and have had the opportunity on many occasions to volunteer at Traditions. I have gotten to know the residents, staff and management very well. The residents are educated, worldly, fun and enthusiastic about life. The staff and management are dedicated, caring, concerned and always go above and beyond to create a warm, supportive environment and home. The result is a community of people who care about and enjoy each other.
The facility itself is very well maintained and comfortable. Its location is ideal as it borders conservation land and is in a quiet neighborhood, but is within walking distance of Wayland's stores, shops, churches and library. Wayland's proximity to Boston and major highways is an added bonus!
I have participated in many of the excursions, events and activities offered at Traditions. They are numerous, varied and fun - really, something for everyone. And the food... .stop by and try it for yourself...just delicious!
I would highly recommend Traditions of Wayland if you are looking for a first class assisted living or memory care facility.
Thanks so much for your kind words!
I am a friend or relative of a resident
Traditions of Wayland is a very nice place for any person requiring an assisted living situation. I have visited the facility several times to see my best friends Grandmother. Traditions of Wayland has a number of aspects that make it desirable place for your loved one to live at. The best and possibly most important factor is its location. Traditions of Wayland is located in the heart of Wayland, MA and is within walking distance to a number of stores, restaurants and a park. The location provides a number of activities that are safe and within a short walk. This is very important for an assisted living establishment because it gives the residents a variety of things to do with their time, that doesn't require much assistance or the need to drive anywhere. The activities that are located within walking distance are also a good motivator for physical exercise, which is good for many of the residents' health. I often see residents of Traditions of Wayland out-and-about with each other in the downtown Wayland area. The fact that the residents have a number of things they can do with each other, without the need for a nurse or supervisor gives them a good sense of independence, which I believe is very important for people in assisted living situations. Overall the combination of it's location, quality of the physical building and friendliness of residents and nurses make Traditions of Wayland a great assisted living community for people in the Metro West area of Boston.
I visited this facility
Traditions of Wayland has assisted living and a new memory impairment unit. I toured it recently and know some of the staff there.
It's fairly isolated--well outside of Boston in what's called Metro West--and it can be tough to get there without a car.
The facility is very attractive. It was built out of an old mansion in a woodsy, picturesque area. Most of the rooms are private, but they do have a few large shared rooms.
The direct care staff is very high quality--very New England. The dementia unit was just opened a few months ago, and they brought in a skilled program director to run it. The food is similarly excellent, and they cater to individual tastes.
Activities are also good--varied and designed to cater to the educated resident population.
