Dover Place was very well organized. It had a community vibe where they were trying to get people to work together and build a community there and trying to get activities as well as trying to physically strengthen the elderly. The staff were very friendly. They had a library, physical therapy nurses, a round the clock nurse, and a schedule of events where they had a musician that came every other day and a bunch of volunteers for different events. They had haircuts, full dining facilities, a breakfast, and a garden.

Dover Place was a more robust facility. Everything was well taken care of. The aesthetics throughout the building were very nice. I spoke with a woman by the name of Cecilia, and she was very, very accommodating and very pleasant. She showed me around the entire facility, and we looked at different rooms. The rooms had kitchenettes with a sink, a refrigerator, and cabinetry. I was very much impressed with the facility and the amenities. They had a nursing station with 2 available nurses on staff and a medical office. They had nice dining facilities. The dining room looked more like a restaurant. I did see the menus and they looked pretty standard. But they said that if the residents wanted something different, they would accommodate those. I did see some breakfasts and some lunches, and everything looked fresh. The plating and the appearance of the food looked good.

My parents have moved into Dover Place. The staff is very welcoming and very caring. They assess the individual's needs and provide care for that individual. The staff is the reason that it's such a great place. My parents really enjoy the food. They have lots of activities. They have bingo. They have craft classes. They have pet therapy. They have Wii bowling, which is hilarious. They have card games. They have jigsaw puzzles. They have story time. They bring in pastors from different churches. There are a ton of activities. They also have a few more choices in the apartment set-up. My parents moved into a two bedroom, and this place has two separate bedrooms.

Dover Place was nice. It was brightly painted, and it was colorfully decorated with different things that made it look a little bit homey. They had several different options. They had a studio apartment, they had a one-bedroom apartment, and they had a two-bedroom apartment. They also had a nurses' station like one that you could walk to. They have activities scheduled as well but theirs is more robust. The staff were phenomenal. They all appreciated each other. They're very, very helpful and friendly. When we went to Dover Place, they had a couple of people that were playing Wii in one room, and they had a bunch of people in another activity room. They had several activity rooms. They also have a laundry service. They will take people to their doctor's appointments any day of the week, not just Tuesdays and Thursdays. They had an enclosed space, not as big of a courtyard. They had kind of a walking trail behind it for those that are a little bit more independent. They have two floors, and they have an elevator. They also have a dining room and a salon. What I liked about Dover Place is the color. Each space was painted a different color even in the hallway so that it almost felt like you were walking down a street in Europe or something. It was really cute. They had little spaces next to each room, a little shelf. They all had little mailboxes so people could pass notes to each other easily. They could decorate it however they wanted to. Some people had gone all out, almost like a mini front porch, even though it was a little shelf, it was very personal. They had puzzles and sitting areas in the hallways because it's a much wider space, so it didn't feel like just a hallway. You could walk down there, you could sit just outside your room if you wanted to, put puzzles together or read a book because there was a space there. They had almost a full kitchen in each hallway. So even though you only had a kitchenette in your room, there was a full stove and all that kind of stuff right outside your room where you could fix a meal if you wanted to. There were a few more options there. It was nice. We were impressed with that place. We met one of the nurses and she was willing to talk to us and help us out with the questions that we had, even though we weren't patrons yet or anything. They were nice.

Dover Place was excellent. The young lady, Sarah, took me on a tour throughout the facility, explaining how the place was laid out, what their objectives were, and what the services and things were offered. I was very much impressed by the cleanliness of the place and the attention that the residents were getting. The staff knew the individuals, which I liked. Also, I liked the fact that it's close to my home. Sarah showed me the area where they planted stuff in the spring and the open area where some people can sit outside. They have two courtyards, one is closed-in because that was the memory care, while the other one was more open. The place was just comfortable. It had everything that I was looking for, that includes their location, the staff, the cleanliness, and the accessibility. They were all professional and top of the line.

I love Dover Place. It smelled good, was clean, and looked nice. There's a whole lot to do in that place. They were very friendly and the place was just wow because the way it was set up, really looked like a community. The lady was very friendly and showed me a one-bedroom and a studio. I went there around 1 o'clock, so I saw some residents watching TV, while some were standing around talking to each other. She also said that there are people that would come in to get them into therapy and stuff like that.

My mother-in-law is living in Dover Place. It's very nice, and we're very satisfied with everything so far. I chose it because of how friendly and helpful they were, right from the very beginning, even before my mother-in-law went in there. It was warm, inviting, and felt like a community, like a family. It was decorated for Halloween, it had nice fall flowers around, and it doesn't smell like a nursing home. The residents are out in the community and doing activities. People were playing cards and ladies were getting their nails and hair done.

Dover Place was beautiful, immaculately clean, and I also saw the memory unit. All the people were very engaged with the activities. The apartments were lovely. They have a physical therapy room, and an area where the memory care people can sit on benches. It looked very nice.
