I visited this facility

I had an appointment in Hampshire at 1 p.m. and I was running late. I didn’t meet with anybody there -- I wasn’t sure who to go to. Nobody came out to talk to me, but I met a lady that I knew from church. She lives there and has a studio apartment, so she invited me to look inside. Then I saw the lunch room and it was packed when I was there. They said the room was finished and I guess it had a desk and a chair. It had an air conditioner, heater, and a good sized bathroom. The doorway was wide enough for a wheelchair to get in and out. It had a small sink and a small refrigerator. It didn't have a stove because they served all the meals in the lunch room and this was a few months back. I noticed there are a lot of people in the dining room and there was really no place to sit down. They have a sign in front that says you couldn’t come in anytime and have lunch there. It looks like it’s a new place and it’s cheaper. The place is nice, neat, and clean. Their apartment is condominium style and it looked nice. They would take the residents on bus rides for shopping or to different places. The person I talked to felt that it was nice and she enjoyed living there.

I visited this facility

I like the yard and maintenance at Hamsphire. The inside was nice and clean as well. The room was great and the ones I looked at had a kitchen, living room, and bedroom. Everything is great, although I feel it was small as I’m used to a big house. The dining area looked good to me and the staff was very friendly.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

The Hampshire had good proximity, and better food. It’s very bright, and I like the openness of it. I really liked the staff. They were very friendly and the people who served the food were very nice. The residents were also nice. They also have residents’ ambassadors who met new people. They have exercises and bible study, and the guys played cards. We liked that there were activities attended by guys. My wife’s uncle moved in over a week ago.

Questions about The Hampshire

Describe the overall population of independent living residents at The Hampshire. What is their average age? What are their favorite things to do?

Our residents range from 55 to early 100s and everything in between! Their favorite activities are as different as their personalities! By using our Holiday 365 app each resident is able to view the daily calendar and sign up for events that interest them. If they are unable to find something that peaks their interest on the calendar they can simply message a friend to join them for a game of cards or to enjoy a walk around the community.

Our residents can take advantage of the complimentary transportation to help them get around town. The scheduled shuttle can take residents to stores, doctor appointments, dining, or group outings.

What makes the chef or dining program at The Hampshire exceptional? What kind of menu can independent living residents expect?

Our community has an Executive Chef and Sous Chef who care about providing residents not only delicious but also nutritious meals, 3 times a day. Our menus are changed seasonally to ensure the freshest products and flavors and we offer over 150 different entrees with each season. Residents can select a la carte items for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Entrees at each service include specials like our Holiday Fresh option or Resident’s Choice. All meals are served in our restaurant-style dining rooms with friends and neighbors, allowing everyone to enjoy good food and good conversation.

Residents are able to socialize in our game room or activity room, sit back with a good book at our library, get physical at our fitness room or just catch up with some friends in the atrium.

What safety features or security measures does The Hampshire offer to independent living residents?

Our residents can feel safe 24/7 knowing that they can access help with just a push of a button. Each resident receives their own Lively Mobile Plus emergency device that goes anywhere they do. The device, which is included in monthly rent, can be activated for a variety of reasons, including emergencies, directions, health concerns, or to just speak to a friendly voice. The community is also only accessible to residents from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. so you can rest easy knowing that there will not be unwanted late-night visitors.

If The Hampshire accepts dogs or cats, what indoor/outdoor areas can they enjoy?

We love our residents and we love their pets! Our community is pet friendly so you can bring your furry friend with you to your new home. There are green spaces and courtyards as well as walking paths where you can enjoy nice long walks.

Does The Hampshire work with an agency or registry to provide nursing and medical assistance as needed?

Our community provides the option to each resident to choose their own third party care provider. This allows the freedom of choice and flexibility for each resident to determine how much, or how little, support they need.
