I visited this facility

Traditions of Hershey independent living had a very nice feel to it, was very updated, and was in a nice location. The staff and apartments seemed very nice. We would not hesitate to put my mom in there. The place was excellent and seemed to be well equipped for different activities.

Traditions of Hersey was a more modern and newer facility, so everything was very nice and accommodating. I ate there, and the food was good. They had lots of activities and rooms for movies and things like that. It thought it gave people a chance to have independent living but with help available.

Traditions of Hershey is an independent living facility that does provide services in terms of personal care. My mother does receive some of those services which she really needs. They served lunch and dinner in the dining room, and they help the residents with getting food. It’s a very nice place. They have therapy and a beauty shop on site, and they provide entertainment.

My mom is in Tradition of Hershey. I like that it is clean, and it has a convenient location. She has been there for 6 years now. She is in a shared room, but she has options. I will recommend it for independent care because they have a lot of activities, and the staff is pleasant.

I am living in Traditions of Hershey and it nice. I have a one-bedroom apartment with a kitchen. It is very nice with large living room, lots of big windows and closets. Small pets are allowed and I have a cat here. The staff is wonderful. Two meals a day are included in the rent and they are good enough for me. There are a lot of activities here. Our activities director is excellent. We have all kinds of games. We have beautiful game room with a pool table. There is a theater with a screen for showing dvds and movies. They have a bus and we go to trips. We go to sight and sound theater to see movies last week.

My Mother has been a resident since Traditions of Hershey opened. We've both been VERY pleased with the staff, the activities, the building and the care. The staff are highly professional, and are exceptionally committed to their work, as well as the residents. The building is very clean and beautiful, and every security option is in place to ensure a safe and pleasant environment. Staff communication is also warm, respectful and responsive. We couldn't be happier or more confident in our decision!

At Traditions of Hershey, they offer a lot of activities. They have a television room, a movie room, and they also have sort of a lounge room. They have outdoors they have. I didn’t see anything wrong with the sanitation, it was very clean. They take good care of their residents very well. The rooms are laid out nice and they change your bedding. They come and clean your room and change your bedding. I would recommend this facility, but they are really expensive about $3000 a month.
