Assisted Living Reviews for Maplewood at Orange

I visited this facility

I love Maplewood; I thought it was very friendly, modern, and a lot of sunlight. This was a beautiful place. Robyn was good. The food was very fresh and tasty. I would have thought it would be good having my parents eat there; I would have felt they would be in good hands. Nothing was too salty and it felt conscientiously prepared. The rooms were nice. They had an exercise room. They had a person that comes and helps and a nurse on call. They had a calendar of activities like they took the residents to trips like the casino and to the theater. It seemed great. If I could afford it, I would put my mom and dad there.

I visited this facility

Maplewood at Orange was nice. No problems with the location, or the property itself, and the people there. It can be a very nice place to stay. The rooms were in good condition. Even though it was winter time, there were some very nice areas out there. It’s in a single community or all-in-one building type of structure.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother move to Maplewood at Orange last May of this year. I choose this facility because a good friend recommends it and when I go there, I am very impressed with people working there and the residents. It is a good fit for my mother with her health and her dementia. She has a studio apartment and it is a very good accommodation with enough space for her. The food tastes excellent. The only thing I have a little concern about is that they are not diet specific if people have certain need, but in general, I think it is healthy, organic food and it tastes delicious. They offer her to be able to be on the current neighborhood both for the memory loss clients as well as for other residents within the building. She has access to everything there. It is a very good thing for her and everything is working well. I think I will recommend them to anyone. It comes with a cost, but it is certainly the best place for elder people with memory loss that cannot be accommodated in their own home.
