Reviews of Edenwald in Towson, Maryland

Most people don’t do their homework. They don’t even know what questions to ask. We chose Edenwald after researching CCRC’s for 5 years. We had a matrix of our wants and needs and rated them on our visits. We learned what questions to ask. We visited about 12 CCRC’s, then narrowed them down to the top 3 and then went back for 5 more visits to each one. We spent the night (highly recommended), visited apartments of the residents, ate the food, went to their concerts/programs, and swam in the pools. With each visit or open house we learned another new piece of information. Edenwald became the perfect fit for us. This is not a decision to be made likely. And we made the decision ourselves so that our children did not choose for us. It was a daunting task, emptying a house we loved after 38 years. So much stuff! But Edenwald provided a move manager who came to the house and helped with the downsizing. We also used their moving and packing service. Our emotions and physical fortitude weren’t up to doing it ourselves. Our children have professional lives and couldn’t help either. When we visited each CCRC, we asked the residents what they regretted about moving there. Most replied that they waited too late. And wished they had moved in 10 years earlier. So we did. I moved in at 70 and my husband at 74. We have the vitality and the enthusiasm to enjoy all they have to offer. And to contribute our honed skills to benefit other residents, who mirror our friends from our old neighborhood. Our friends have said they “aren’t ready. Next year, they are not getting younger. After 70, your ability to deal with this kind of change wanes. I didn’t think I would like a high rise. I was wrong. During our overnight stay, I discovered how easy it is to get around. How much more active we are. How everything is so much easier!!! Easier lifestyle: Bus transportation to shopping and grocery stores with items delivered to your door, maintenance personnel to help with any house hold repairs, cleaning service in our apartment, medical personnel onsite, so many venues and styles to choose for dining, a bank and ATM, a small convenience store. You can be as sociable as you want. So many new friends! No isolation. And a financial package that was very doable for us. We still like to travel, and the discount on our monthly fee paid for our trips. If I’m gone for a long weekend, my husband has many invitations for dinner. And our kids were surprised that we can still have our holiday dinners in our apartment. Our health care fees are included in our monthly fee. We don’t have adequate long term care insurance. Most people say they have it but when they analyze what they do have, they realize it won’t last and won’t cover much. We can visit each other in the same building if either of us moves to another level of care. I won’t be in one facility and my husband in another. What I nightmare! Our children are especially happy we have moved in. Could you image spending your life going between two different facilities to take care of Mom and Dad? They know we are cared for so they don’t have to worry or interrupt their work/lives. And they won’t have to empty our apartment when we die. Such a relief to them. BTW- 70% of the monthly fee goes to staff salaries. They stay.

Edenwald is only two miles from my home and it is one of the communities where you go in independently and then you move up as you move in to different facilities they never allow anybody to go directly to the nursing home until very recently. The facility itself is wonderful. It is clean, it's open it's airy, when you look out the window, you'll see trees and it has a balcony. It's in a great location. The hallways are really wide. It is bright and cheerful. My father got his own room with his own private bath. They know me by name. They know my father by name and they call me with the slightest little thing. I love the communication. He is treated so well. The choice of food is outstanding. They have social activities every day. They also have auditorium and a swimming pool. I absolutely recommend it to others.

My grandmother use to live in this Facility and it was the greatest investment she ever made. She was very independent however when my grandfather died the house began to be too much to keep up with so she moved here. It was an older person's home, assisted living and full nursing home. There were many activates for the residents to do as well as chefs on duty almost 24/7. Residents had a few different apartments to choose from such as 1 room or 2 rooms, it was an 18-story building that was always kept immaculate. Within the past 2 years they had put on a very large extension that had a large pool and a rooftop putting range. My grandmother passed away a year ago however she received the best care and had great experiences at this facility. It was a pricey place to live however the care was second to none and I know there are some very rough nursing facilities out there.
Edenwald's objective is to provide the highest quality of care for all of our residents. Our staff is fully trained and committed to prompt, compassionate, and accurate medical care. Our facilities are clean and comfortable for our residents, and all uphold to the state of Maryland and Baltimore County hygiene standards. Maryland Health Care Commission's "2012 Maryland Nursing Home Family Survey" gave Edenwald a rating of 9 out of 10 for overall care; the statewide average was 8.3. We are also proud to report that the survey found 97% would recommend Edenwald; the statewide average was 90%.

The facility and all the amenities if offers is excellent. The staff is very caring, friendly and helpful. They have accomodations to meet all needs and offer a wide range of services on-site. My mother was very happy during her time as a resident at Edenwald and we never had to worry about her there.
