Reviews of Rowley Memorial Masonic Home

I am a friend or relative of a resident
Each time I visited the Rowley Masonic Home, the staff greeted me cheerfully and inquired about my family. Each team member offered assessments from her / his own unique perspective (nurse, medication aide, dining attendant, CNA) and this gave me a much clearer picture about my grandmother's physical and emotional well-being. I never felt like I had to pry in order to obtain information nor was I made to feel like a bother. The staff were very kind. Even my grandmother -- who is accustomed to living independently and prefers to be alone -- remarked at how caring and lovely everyone was to her. They never patronized her and always engaged her in lively, intelligent conversations. The medication aide was very patient on those few occasions when grandmother would repeatedly ask about whether it was time for her pills, forgetting that she had taken them earlier in the day. The CNAs would encourage grandmother when she was doing her physical therapy exercises and would marvel about the great shape she was in for her age. The dining staff would drop by to remind her of meal times and give a brief overview of what choices were on the menu. Each time I was present at meal time, I was impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. It always looked and smelled delicious and was certainly not the stereotypical bland, boring hospital food! The dining room was comfortable and the meals were served restaurant-style. Although the lodgings were a bit small, they were cozy and residents were encouraged to bring items from home to make the stay more comfortable. Staff even assisted our family while we moved in a favorite chair, coffee table, reading lamp, and television. When it came time for my grandmother to leave, the staff seemed genuinely sad to see her go, but they also were very supportive of her desire to get back to her own home. I would not hesitate to recommend this facility to others who are considering assisted living facilities for their loved ones.
