Assisted Living Reviews for Schooner Estates

We moved Dad here after a placement in another facility that did not measure up to the care we wanted for him. We were more than impressed upon first visiting Schooner. We moved Dad here, and he was in the large main room talking to other residents from that time on- it seemed he was out there every time we visited! He like the staff, was always smiling, and his time here was a reflection of how warmly he was treated and cared for. Dad was 84, and had significant medical issues, but the staff worked overtime to keep him as independent as he could be, and still be safe. Both my wife and I have said more than once that when the time comes, we could live here and be happy. The 5 stars I rated Schooner is a true rating.

I have a dear friend who relocated to Maine to be near a family member. Previously she had resided in a beautiful retirement facility in Florida overlooking a golf course. She was very depressed as her son had recently passed away. We were very concerned for her well being and the adjustment to a new home. We cannot believe the change in her in a few months. Her enthusiasm and zest for life has returned. She raves about Schooner Estates - the staff, the other residents, the food, the activities, everything. She is so happy. She never complains about anything. In the past I would feel so sad after our phone calls and now I look forward to our daily chat. She is a new person and I can't thank you enough for the change to my dear friend. Keep up the good work - you have created a very warm and inviting atmosphere. Also this is the first time in her life she has lived by herself and she was very nervous and scared. Every day she has something tell me and I have my dear friend back - lively and funny. Thank you.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for sharing! We are thrilled that your dear friend is thriving here at Schooner and that it is a comfort to you. Our goal is to bring smiles to our tenant's faces each and every day!

My Dad passed away this past Friday. We remember his hesitation when we first talked about moving him from Hospice to Schooner Estates. Once there, he came back to life. He enjoyed his meals, the tenants, the nurses, the staff and the activities. For all intents and purposes, he even started courting Mom again (she lives in Independent Living). He was able to go visit her in her apartment, or he would go "pick her up" and walk her over to the Village Green to listen to music, or attend one of the holiday/New Years parties. They have both been happier than they have been in a long time! As children, we have loved seeing how the staff treats them so respectfully and lovingly. We've also experienced how they have included our whole family in that circle. The dining staff not only served our family meals, but delivered them with a tight hug and sincere emotion as my Dad's health declined. Dad's nurses handled him with such loving care. We weren't sure Schooner would be able to do end of life care as well as hospice, but with the guidance of the hospice nurses, they exceeded our every wish. They were tender, compassionate and so very respectful of him. They talked to us honestly and delivered care according to Dad's needs and our wishes. We were so happy that we didn't have to move him to another facility at such a fragile time. Now, the tenants and staff will help us support my Mom as she grieves his loss when we aren't there. She received a condolence call from one of her new friends this morning and that absolutely made her day and touched her very deeply. She had been reluctant to return to the dining room until that call. Everyone at Schooner has been so wonderfully kind and compassionate to our entire family. It's very difficult to express the depths of our gratitude properly, but I hope this relays a fraction of it.

Schooner Estates was very good. The staff was very helpful. The room was elegant, spacious and well laid-out. The dining area was very upscale. They had a lot of space outside. The place was clean and well maintained.

Schooner Estates is very nice and is something we would consider. The pricing is comparable, and even a little bit less than the other communities we looked at. It's just that it's a little bit dated, but it's still nice and clean. The fellow that runs the place was very cordial and is probably the most knowledgeable person that I've talked to. The menu looks very good also, and they do a good job with the cleanliness. There are several plans, and there's one where they offer lunch and you pay for dinner and breakfast.

I toured Schooner Estates, and it's OK. It looked nice, including the building, and the grounds, but it's not something I'm looking forward to. They have gatherings, game rooms, and exercises. It keeps the people that want to participate busy, and it's good that they don't keep them in their room. The staff was very courteous.

Schooner Estates was very nice, and the people were wonderful. The tour was done in a very knowledgeable and compassionate way. The rooms were nice, clean, roomy, and came with most of the things needed, but you could also bring in your own stuff.

I had an excellent tour at Schooner Estates. They showed me a calendar of events, and I was pretty impressed with it. The residents seemed to be very comfortable. They actually strip the room of everything, so it is like brand new when you move in. My parents are moving in there, so it is a top-notch, very high-end facility but has good value for the money.

Schooner Estates had everything from assisted living to independent living. We had a fantastic experience there and really liked the facility. It's nice to be able to put someone in a location where you don't have to move them and needs will be met depending on the progression of their condition. They met all the needs.

Provider Response

We’re so glad you had a fantastic experience! Thank you for your feedback, and come back and visit any time!

Schooner Estates was fine and very pleasant, except they didn't have any space available, and it was more money. Our decision was based on the space availability, really.

Provider Response

Thank you for your feedback! We hope that you or your loved one feels at home now, wherever that may be!

Schooner Estates was pretty well high rated. They had several different types of apartments depending on what you want to do. They have different programs and several dining areas; again, it depends on what you choose. A room has a bedroom, a front room, and a little kitchenette. They have any activities you want. I would recommend them because it's very nicely decorated and they have very nice rooms, but they can improve their central air because they have window air. They got the walls painted halfway down, and every room has plush rugs in it.

Provider Response

Thank you for sharing this information! We’re always interested in people’s impressions of our campus!

We found Schooner Estates in Auburn. We have friends who live in the community, and we came to visit them and saw for ourselves how great it is living in this facility. The atmosphere is wonderful. Everybody is very friendly, helpful, and cheerful. It's just a happy place to live. We are in the independent living section, and we have a two-bedroom apartment with a patio. We get the main meal in the dining room at 1 o'clock, and the food here is excellent. I am diabetic, and they fix special food for me. The staff is wonderful. No matter whom you ask for help on the staff, you always get it. They have a shuttle service to take you to do the market or to take you to doctor's appointments.

Provider Response

Thanks so much! We’re glad you think it’s a happy place to live! We think it’s a happy place to work, too!

I lived there for a while. I was taking care of my brother in law and that is a very nice place! It's very nice and expensive, but affordable compared to other high end facilities. I can go to Schooner estates for less money and 3 meals a day. You can get a one bedroom at Schooner Estates for less money than other expensive facilities. The staff is great. You can't ask for better people! The housekeepers, the maintenance people.. They go out of their way to help you. I'm very satisfied with them. If you've never been there, you should make a trip there! It is beautiful and their food is very good. I would recommend that place to anybody in fact I have many times. I still go over there and help the woman with her knitting and crocheting. I like that place very very much. It's a warm, comfortable place and people are very friendly.

Provider Response

We’re glad that you still come back to visit! Thank you so much for your feedback!

My mother lived at Schooner Estates for about a year until she needed more care than the residential care unit could provide. I also have two friends with parents there. This is a terrific place and I would highly recommend it. The physical facility is lovely, the grounds are well kept, the apt. living is extremely comfortable with a good variety of options. The staff stays on for a long time. They know everyone and are very involved with people each day. I always felt comfortable knowing my mother was receiving very good care. Good food, beautiful dining room. It has a real community feeling. Lots of activities to choose from with many levels of independence taken into consideration. Everyone deserves to grow older in a place as nice as this.

Provider Response

Thank you for your feedback, and thank you for choosing our community for your mother! We know it’s our residents that make us great!
