I visited this facility
We visited Chesterley Meadows (Emeritus at Chesterley Meadows), and we didn't like it. The staff was not the best. We had to wait a long time. It was a three-story building, and the rooms were small and not at all attractive, but thought it was clean. I saw their dining room. It was spacious and clean, and it looked nice. They had activities. They had bingo, card games, and things like that. However, it just doesn't have a desirable feel. It was more like a hotel.
We deeply regret that we were unable to meet all of your expectations. We want to thank you for taking the time to visit and for providing feedback. Please know it will be reviewed and used to better serve our residents and their families in the future.

Mom and dad both were at Chesterley Meadows. When mom was in hospice we took her back to Chesterley Meadows and she died there. Dad is still is living there.
I highly recommend them. They've been wonderful with both mom and dad the whole time that they've been there, and they still are. They take very good care of them and if anything goes wrong they immediately contact us. They have lots of activities and they try to get dad involve, which is a chore in itself 'coz he doesnt want to get involved but they keep trying. They're very good at keeping an eye on him and everything. They have a very good person in charge of activities there. They take them on fieldtrips and they go to various different stores at least twice a week. Around the holidays they have even more activities going on. I'ts a nice place, very well kept and looks fairly new. The apartments and all of the main areas are nice and clean. They have a nice TV room with a big screen TV and lounge chairs. They have movie nights and popcorn.

The service is excellent at Chesterly Court. Mom is in a secure apartment. She gets her meals and they do activities. She's very happy there.

My experience with the Chesterley meadows, is a great one. All the staff is always so kind, and they treat your family member like one of their family. The facilities are some of the cleanest and nicest I have seen, they really make you feel like a home away from home. This is the type of care homes, that all care homes should be modeled after. The daily activities are great, and I feel they keep all the residents involved, and young. I have also seen that the residents are taken on weekly field trips, which I believe is a great thing. It really makes the residents in my opinion feel like they are at a vacation home. When I was there visiting I had the fortune to taste some of the food prepared there, and I must say it was a very pleasant experience. In all the Chesterley meadows is a great place, where you can feel your loved one will have the utmost care available.

My grandmother (Nana) entered Chesterley Meadows when she was about 92 years old and still fairly active and independent. Initially, whe was very angry about being moved to an assisted living facility, and she was difficult to work with. The staff were patient with her and allowed her time to get settled. It took about 3 months for her to truly settle into her new home, but Chesterley Meadows turned out to be a positive move for her. It is very clean and homey inside, with a large dining area, wide spacious halls, reading area, and beautiful park grounds around the facility. My grandmother's room was rather small and cramped, but she didn't seem to mind. She had a single room, which tends to be small if you have a lot of "stuff", which my grandmother did. Chesterley Meadows offers plenty of social opportunities for it's residents, such as church services, concerts, games (bingo), and exercise classes. The only area where I think Chesterley Meadows needed improving on was when my grandmother was no longer able to adequately take care of herself. She was slowly progressing from being fairly self-sufficient to needing more individual care. I think Chesterley Meadows needs to have better trained staff when it comes to monitoring residents for signs of deterioration, increasing dementia or signs of Altzheimers. We noticed my grandmother's health and mental state deteriorating, yet the staff didn't seem to be tending to her needs during this transition phase. Seniors who stop making it to the dining room, start sleeping more or acting confused should be closely monitored and although Chesterley Meadows is for active seniors who can still take care of themselves, it's vital for an assisted living facility to be aware of the constantly changing needs of it's residents. A 92 year old woman's state of mind and health can change in a matter of weeks or even days, going from self sufficient to needing complete assistance. I would have liked to see Chesterley Meadows staff make recommendations sooner to have my grandmother moved into a different facility that offered her better care. Overall, Chesterley Meadows is a wonderful facility if your loved one can truly fend for themselves and needs limited assistance.
