Assisted Living Reviews for Maplewood at Danbury

July 11, 2016

I visited this facility

Maplewood was very beautiful, and the people were very nice. However, it was too far for me, and it was in the city, which I didn’t really like. The surrounding was very nice, it was very clean, the atmosphere was very friendly, and it was nicely decorated. The apartments were nice as well. I thought they were high priced compared to the others. They had a ton of activities scheduled.

We are so happy you took the time to review our community on this website. Thank you for sharing your findings with other families. We do have six communities total in the state of CT, including Bethel, Newtown, Orange, Darien and East Norwalk, as well as Danbury as you know. Please allow us the opportunity to perhaps visit another one of our communities, perhaps more convenient for you. We are happy to assist you finding another community, if you so choose. Thank you again and we look forward to helping you.

There are a lot of positive things that come with living at Maplewood at Danbury, such as they have a podiatrist who comes in regularly, an on-site beauty salon, and a doctor and psychiatrist who visit. Pllus, they will do all the medication for you. If for some reason you are not able to bring your parent out for doctors’ appointments, they can perform these things right in their facility. It is very helpful. The public areas were lovely. They have a very good program for Alzheimer’s patients.

I did visit the Maplewood at Danbury. I thought it was a very confident staff, and I liked the facility. It was more for Alzheimer's than for what my brother needs. He needs skilled nursing, but he doesn't have dementia or Alzheimer's, and that is what they specialize in. I did think the facility was lovely, and I thought the meal plan was excellent. It just doesn't fit my brother's needs. It was very clean and didn't seem like a nursing home environment.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom is at Maplewood in Danbury, and the facility is beautiful. The activities are packed for all different levels. The food is amazing, and the people are really caring. I picked it because they have very high ratio of staff to residents. I didn't want my mom to be overwhelmed in a new place she can't navigate, and it has worked out perfectly. Because of the small size, they get a lot of individual attention. They get to know the other residents and the staff and vice versa rather quickly. It has memory care, and they have different levels like a continuing care community. If my mom's Dementia progresses even to full Alzheimer's, the place runs the complete gamut so she doesn't have to be moved.

Maplewood is a relatively new place, and everything there is also first-class. It is in a more urban setting, and it is also quite expensive. I imagine the staff is good. Parking is good. I'd recommend Maplewood.

Maplewood at Danbury was clean, and everybody was lovely, but it was more expensive than where we are at right now. The residents seemed to be happy, and everything else was beautiful.

Maplewood at Danbury is very good. I liked the place because of the location and the décor. The location is right across the hospital and overlooks the cemetery. They have a garden, but it was not a big one. I was invited to eat here, and the food was good. I noticed when I visited that the residents are very active. There a lots of arts and crafts. It’s a nice facility, but it's out of our price range.

I spoke to a very knowledgeable and courteous individual over at Maplewood who knew a lot about assisted living. The place seemed to be very nice. The common areas were very nice as well. But it was in a very congested area and was right near the hospital. So parking was somewhat difficult. There was also lot of noise there. That kind of things turned me off.
