I visited this facility

Somerby is at the top of my list. They were exceptionally helpful. I was impressed with how they handled the elderly patients. It was neat, clean, orderly, and well managed.

Somerby of Mobile was nice, and everybody seemed to be very nice. They had assisted living, memory care, and retirement units with patio homes.

Somerby is amazing. The staff and residents are always friendly, happy and are smiling. When you ask for help they go out of their way to stop what they are doing and direct you. We have had meals there many times and it is like a fine restaurant. I love their grilled salmon and my daughter loves the hamburgers. I can't imagine a place that could be any better for my parents. They have really blossomed since they got there. They were getting isolated in their home and now I can hardly get them on the phone because they are always out doing something with their friends. I can't say enough nice things about this place!

My mother and step father have had a home at Somerby for many years. Following my step father's death several years ago, my mother began having increasing difficulty living independently. She moved into Assisted Living where she received PT and OT as well as nursing care which enabled her to become more active. In a matter of 4 months, she was able to return to her own home where she has been now for appoximately 8 months. I give much of the credit to the staff for encouraging her to get out of her room and become more active and independent.

My mother was the resident and after 9 days had experienced many falls without a care plan implemented to help decrease the falls. Care givers never checked on my mother to see if she needed assistance.

I visited this facility

I've already bought a property at Somerby of Mobile to build my own home. It's a gated community, and it is perfect for what I want. Everybody is very friendly. Everything that I've heard is fine, and they have everything that I need, but I'm not living there yet and I won't for another five months until they build the house. They have a swimming pool, exercise rooms, all sorts of activities, movies, trips, and transportation. They have everything that I want.

Provider Response

Ann, We are so glad that you have chosen Somerby. We are looking forward to your moving in. You will be a wonderful addition to our community!!!

Somerby of Mobile is a very modern and clean place. I went there, and the place was great. They have independent living and assisted living. The marketing person was very informative. He called in a nurse, and we discussed the situation; that is how we came to the conclusion that they cannot help us because they don’t have a nursing home.

Somerby of Mobile was awesome as well as their staff. What I liked most about the community was the fact that they took everybody out for a tour once a week. They took the residents to the places where they needed to go. They also had a swimming pool where everybody could get in and swim.

This is a great Senior Resident Facility! I love to go and visit with the residents and the staff. Everyone is very helpful and competent. My parents have had the very best of care. I am kept informed and the staff seems to never tire of my asking questions. Everything is always clean, neat and ready for visitors at any time. My family and I have compared it to a very, very nice cruise ship without the rocking motion. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a safe, care-free, restful and friendly environment.

I visited this facility

Somerby of Mobile was almost like a hotel. The grounds were well taken care of. It's a gated community and it was almost like a resort. The dining room had linen and tablecloths and silverware. They had a leather-bound menu and you can order what you want. They had a swimming pool, an exercise room, a billiard room, and a small library. Their theater room had theater seating and a large-screen TV. They even had a popcorn machine. They had different activities for their residents. I went to a band concert that they had there. The staff at this community were very friendly. They were calling the residents by name. Overall, it was a really nice place.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I was a Resident in an Independent Living Facility for 7 months and thoroughly recommend it. There was plenty to do--planned activities plus others on-site, much going on most of time. If you wanted to participate you could; otherwise stay in your spacious apartment - excellent food choices, very special people who were friendly and enjoyable plus transportation to food stores and other facilities - doctors etc. One Suggestion: Have your present living conditions taken care of: If you own your home, get it situated as Sell or Give to children before you move! That is what I did not do and ended up with Home expenses and Facility Expenses which did not last too long and if you go back home it is hard to make the break again. I have gone down physically and a bit otherwise since I returned home but haven't given up hope. MOVE while you are able. One regret: Did not insist we move while my husband was living as he would have loved being around so many nice people-someone to talk to-but he insisted he wasn't "leaving his home" but I was the one eventually who hasn't left, here alone. Make the Break! Jean

Sommerby of Mobile, AL is beautiful. I make daily trips to its several acre campus and I am always in awe of how nice the scenery is. Upon entering the assisted living facility you notice the cleanliness of the building and the attention to detail that the staff has for their job. The dining room is nicely done, set up like a high quality restaurant, which serves high quality food. There is even private dining for those residents who wish to have guests accompany them. For excersise there is a small, but adequate pool for the residents to keep muscles from deteriorating. I only wish I could go there if I were to ever need help living.

Assisted living is one part of the total equation of Somerby- the campus in West Mobile has garden homes and patio homes and apartments too. When a resident needs to move to assisted living, they are already familiar with where they will be going, as assisted living shares many of the same facilities. I have visited friends of my family there often. It is a beautiful facility that continually brings in new ideas for keeping the residents as engaged as they want to be in the various activities available.
