Assisted Living Reviews for Friends House Retirement Community

I visited this facility

The staff who work at the Friends House Retirement Community were very nice and caring to the visitors and residents. The staff were friendly and helpful and always looked after the residents. The residents were well cared for and the amenities were above par. The staff would often have events for the residents to keep them occupied and to allow them to have fun. Such activities would include things like ice cream socials, bingo nights, and viewings of football games and other similar televised events. The residents seemed quite content and happy with the amenities, staff, and facilities. The facilities were well kept and clean. The facilities were well suited to dealing with many residents and had all the basic necessities as well as other things to accommodate residents with disabilities, such as ramps and elevators. Overall the experience I had as a visitor at the Friends House Retirement Community was very positive and I have no negative comments about it.

I visited this facility

I visited an elderly woman in a nursing home once a month for two years. I thought that the staff did a great job. Whenever I saw them, it was because they were taking care of one of the residents. Facilities, on the other hand, were not as great. The retirement home looked kind of bleak, like a hospital. I think that some effort could have been taken to make the place look and feel more homey. Another positive thing about the home was activities. The staff scheduled and planned various activities for the residents, such as a game day, movie showing, having us visit, and having carolers sing for them near Christmas. Overall my time there was a good experience.

Friend or relative of resident

Overall, Friends House is a great facility. I was impressed with their attention to detail and their personal care they give to their guests. They are very professional and friendly and they offer great care giving. We looked at several places in the area and we were lucky to get a spot at this place. The staff is the best thing about this place…they really seem to take the time to get the know the guests, their needs, their likes, etc. I would recommend Friends's a nice, quiet place and is what we were looking for. The care giving is excellent and the pricing is fair.
