Assisted Living Reviews for Ocean View at Falmouth

Ocean View has been the ideal place for my grandparents to spend their retired years. They have a spacious and comfortable condo-style apartment, with a bedroom, kitchen, living room and bathroom. They love the apartment and have decorated and furnished it so that it feels like home. If they need help with something, like taking out the trash, they can just make a phone call and the staff will arrive quickly and eagerly to help them at their home. Outside of their home, they enjoy the many events and activities constantly going on at Ocean View. They are actively involved in special events at Ocean View, such as the annual lobster bake, exercise programs, and special dining experiences. They also go on trips around the state to fun locations, which are also offered by Ocean View. This is an ideal retirement experience because the members have just the right mix of independence, support, and community.

OceanView in Falmouth is a wonderful facility for many reasons. Not only do they offer different types of facilities for whatever needs your family members/friends may have, the staff is wonderful, and the other residents are great too. My grandmother initially lived in the retirement-community, where she has a property to herself. This was located a short distance from the main assisted living building. All of the maintenance work, gardening, lawn mowing, etc., was taken care of by staff of OceanView. When she was no longer able to live on her own for health reasons, they transitioned her into the assisted living program at the main building, which helped to meet her changing needs. One aspect of the OceanView experience which she enjoyed the most was community activities. There were shuttles for grocery shopping, events in the area, and OceanView itself hosted many events and activities each day. Group exercise, wine and cheese tastings, and game nights are just a few examples of fun activities for residents. Even better, those not living in the assisted-living facilities are invited to join the activities. This enabled my grandmother to form new friendships with residents all over their campus. Finally, I never had a negative interaction with a staff member. My mother dealt with much of the billing and financial details, so I cannot speak to that aspect of their service, but from what I saw and experienced it was a wonderful facility.

Oceanview is a retirement, and assisted living facility. They are building more facilities for Alzheimer's patients. Generally, I'm very happy my mother is there. Oceanview offers plenty of things to do, meals, public transportation, walking paths, and a range of living facilities for people with a range of abilities. I would feel a bit more at ease if I felt my mother was monitored more. She had to pay for her own emergency alert system in case she fell or needed assistance, and the in-house nurse assesses her only once a year. That's the perspective of a daughter who worries, though. My mother probably wouldn't want more monitoring.

My aunt has been living at this facility for about four years. She went in not long after she was diagnosed as being in the onset stages of Alzheimer's. She seems to be doing very well there. I base this opinion on the fact that her progress toward a deeper level of the illness has been very slow and I believe that if she were struggling to take care of herself, this would probably not be the case. The facility appears to be very well run, both staff-wise and structurally, She has been well taken care of both medically and on a day-to-day basis as well. She has many friends there with whom she socialized prior to living there and has made new friends as well. They offer many activities in which she participates, but at the same time, they don't micro-manage her life and choices. She still feels some control over her situation.On a 'down' note, though she is comfortable financially (or at least was, until she went in), it is costly enough for her to be there that she must share her space, which I'm sure has to have its challenges.
