Lovely facilities, nice care attendants but skimpy staffing. Hard to find out who's in charge of loved one. Think they need a better system to make sure someone's always watching. Lots of folks parked in front of tv or asleep in dining room. Think I will keep looking for a place for Grandpa

Being her twin and a nurse ,too.(She is a nurse ,too) I really would liked to have talked with someone there. Keep up the good work and hope ,always, that the girls are always sweet ,pleasant and kind. Unfortunately I am not near by.

My father-in-law is at Huntington Common. He has dementia. With regards to the care and the staff, we are very happy. They're excellent. They're very attentive and loving. They do a lot of nice things with my father-in-law. We think they're wonderful. Like at Christmas Eve, they had a chorus they did with them. They have a beautiful girl that comes in and even dances with some of the older people, like a ballroom dancing kind of thing. They have music a lot. The facility is just very attentive, and they're always doing something. They even trucked two beautiful horses and make you all go out and pet them to make them feel better. They brought them right to the place. I can't recommend this place enough. We are very happy with this place and their care. It is always clean and immaculate.

I visited this facility

Huntington Common was a lovely facility. I think it is very secure. The staff was caring and attentive. It was very good. We were looking for a one-bedroom, and it was quite sufficient for my mother's needs. It was comfortable-looking. They would offer luncheons and outings for their residents.

They're very good down there and I have no complaints with it at all! It's a very nice place and they treat my mother wonderfully there. The staff is great. I really don't have any complaints yet. I chose it because of the price. For the price, it was one of the best places I've looked at. It was one of the top 5 best places I've seen and the money was half of what other places wanted. I was looking for the best for the least. It's a very nice place. It's very clean and modern. It's like a hotel. Mom's room is comfortable, spacious, and looked cheerful. Food is also very good there. I know they're busy like all other places but I would like them to improve on their communication. Other than that, I have no problem with them whatsoever. I would recommend the facility. Mom is okay there. Well in their unit they have dementia, so you have to take it for what it is.

My spouses uncle has lived at this facility since his wife suddenly passed away a few years ago. My husband and mother-in-law went with him to tour several facilities and this was the one they all agreed was the best. When we visited him last fall I could not agree more. It is located in a beautiful spot just a few miles from the beach and only blocks from downtown Kennebunk. It is on thirty-seven acres of beautiful property. They also offer fine dining, cafe, library,fitness club and more. When we visited Maine we went to see him several times. One time we ate at the fine dining option and it was really great food and service. Another time I packed a picnic lunch that we enjoyed on the grounds of the facility. The staff was always more then willing to help and he has always said that they are kind, friendly, prompt, and helpful. They also allow small pets which was one thing that he really wanted. And for those residents that are physically able they have bike and walking paths and a putting green. He is able to take advantage of all the facilities. There is also scheduled activities and transportation that he uses a lot. If I had to go to a assisted living facility and I lived in Maine I would love to go to this one.

The Certified Nursing Assistants were mean to some of the residents and even yelled at them. I would not want a famiiy member there.
