I am a friend or relative of resident

My brother and I looked at a number of independent living settings for our mother. Acacia Village stands out from the others in many ways.

The setting is magnificent and our mother is enjoying the trees, lovely gardens and wildlife on this beautiful campus. When you approach the main building, the architecture and plantings are stunning.

The buildings are immaculate – clean, always with a feel of being freshly painted. magnificent view of a terrace and surrounding grounds.

The dining room is tastefully detailed with table cloths and brass chandeliers. The menu is extensive and changes regularly. The meals are excellent and presented beautifully. The serving staff is uniformed and an absolute delight to be around – without exception – they are personable, respectful and clearly caring. The chef makes it a point to serve fresh local produce when possible and there is always fresh warm bread served and a daily home made soup. The dining room is lively with spirited conversations going on at many of the tables. It was important to our mother that she has the choice of who she dines with – and she wanted the ability to change that from night to night. She did not want a setting where she was assigned to a table, which we learned is the common practice elsewhere. On nights where my mother would prefer to stay in her apartment for dinner – she can order off the menu and have what she loves to call “room service”, where they deliver dinner and dessert to her apartment.

There are a wide variety of activities at Acacia – and many options and transportation to activities and events in the surrounding Utica area.

Enough cannot be said about the staff. Every single individual that works there is wonderful. An over-used word, I know – but we are always struck by the genuine kindness and respect everyone shows to our mother. They are extraordinary. They make Acacia a star.

Acacia Village truly allows our mother to maintain her independence while being in a setting that is lovely, safe and with people available to assist her if she needs it. The wonderful services provided in this setting allows her to use her energy for all the things she loves to do, rather than worry about everything maintaining a home requires.
