I only saw the grounds of Neville Manor. The rooms were small, and it’s a well maintained but old building. It’s close to the city, which people would probably like. It seems like you need to have good mobility skills as there’s a lot of walking. The community is fine.

I am a short term resident of the rehab area. Staff is very helpful & nice. Rooms were pleasant & cleaning was sufficient. Food was a continuing problem--I use a low carb diet as diabetic control & the kitchen did not understand it at all. I kept getting starches & surgary deserts etc. Cooking in general was also wretched. I once had to ask what an omelet was on my plate--it looked like a waffle. Once I was serve a piece of fish with absolutely nothing else on the plate. Couldn't they put some green vvegies also?

My step father was there at Neville Center getting rehabilitation care. They had like separate areas for rehab, long term, and short term care. The staff was helpful. That is my favorite facility out of all of the facilities that he has been in. The rooms were very nice. I didn't eat there, but he likes the food very much. That was one of the only things that he really had any control over. They get to choose their own food from the menu, and he liked that a lot. They had kind of the nursing home activities, but he wasn't really interested in being part of that, so I didn't really pay much attention to it. The cleanliness of the facility really impressed me the most.

Everything looks okay when you walk in but... My mother was there for one month and I found the staff to be very nice. However, the food was quite salty and very bland. My mother was constipated and nothing was done unless I brought to their attention. It seems that they respond to issues brought to their attention but Neville staff not proactive in its approach to care. Any time I showed the staff something that was of concern to me they responded well and quickly and was very accommodating. I wonder though what would happen if I did not visit almost every day.

I went to Neville Place for a visit when I was looking for a facility for my parents. They had pretty much almost everything. They have an arts and crafts studio. The staff are friendly and their services seemed really good. I like the facility in general. The building and the garden was really nice, but it was a little too expensive and the apartments itself were very small for my parents.

It was necessary for our family to put my father in law in home where he could be cared for and I must say that the Neville Manor gave him the care that we would have given him at home. The place was always kept clean and we felt my father in law received the best care from the entire staff. It was a comfort to all of us knowing that he was given the best of care. I would recommend this place to anyone that has to put a family member in a home.

My Nana lived for probably a little under a year at Neville Place. She was over ninety years old before she moved to an assisted living. She didn't want to have to move but realized she had to. I think it was nicer than many assisted livings. Her apartment had a bedroom, a bathroom, and a longer room in between that placed the living room on one end and the kitchen on the other. The hallway door opened onto the kitchen. The apartment felt like a home and not a room. She had a window that faced Fresh Pond which she commented on liking a few times. She wanted to go on walks around the pond but didn't have the energy. Still it would be a nice features for others considering living there. The halss were quiet although residents occasionally passed by. I know my Nana was happy to talk with people at dinner. The meals left a little to be desired, but I think the social interaction made her happy. The staff always seemed friendly. It seemed like they cared. It's a pretty good option if assisted living is what you want. I wasn't particularly impressed, but it certainly seemed nicer than what I imagine most to be, although I haven't know many other nursing home to base it on. I've seen three other nursing homes for other people and this was definitely the nicest of those.
