My 88 year old aunt lives at Chelsea. She moved there June 2015 and adjusted quite well. She has memory issues but lives in a one bedroom apt in the independent living section. Housekeeping comes once a week. Their food is great (I've had a few guest meals). She pays for her meals (we turned the elec stove off). In Jan 2016 rent increased 7%. I expect that to happen again Jan 2017. The staff is fantastic. She doesn't remember to attend all the events, except bingo, so they call her or say come join us if they see her sitting with friends by the fireplace in the lobby. Hair salon and self laundry (or they do it for you for a small fee) in bldg and podiatrist comes about every three mos. Physical therapy on site, which came in handy one time. They brought her meals to her until she was able to get around again. She is three minutes from me and very happy I don't have to worry about her safety and health...

I visited this facility
The Chelsea was nice, but it wasn’t as homey. It was a little farther out and a bit remote. The rooms were clean, neat, big, and well decorated. I saw the area where they have dinners and that was a nice setup. They showed us that they had a beauty salon on site. They give us an apple pie when we visited. The accommodations were clean and neat. The staff was nice and accommodating.

The Chelsea Bald Eagle was a nice facility, but their rooms were very small, like studio flats. They had an art room, a salon, and game room.

I am/was a resident of this facility
I am in The Chelsea at Bald Eagle. It fits my needs because it is not an assisted living. It is an independent living because I do not need assisted as I can pretty much do everything on my own. So, I pay a much lower rate than the people here who are in the assisted living. It is very good and I love it. The apartment is very accommodating for me. It is in the country. As a matter of fact, it is three miles from where I go fishing. My cleaning lady comes once a week and she does an excellent job in cleaning up my apartment. I am very happy here. The only negative I find is that everybody is subject to 7% increase in the rent that has happened the last three years and it has a lot of people worried.

I am a past client of this provider
I liked Van Dyk's proximity to me. I could get to my mom in less than an hour. My mom shared a two-bedroom apartment, with walk in closets, a full kitchen, with a big living room and a big shower. It was a huge, very clean and state-of-the-art apartment. The staff was really nice but they could improve on the food they served. My mom said that the food wasn't that great but it also wasn't horrible.
