Assisted Living Reviews for Zelma Lacey House of Charlestown

August 21, 2017

By Beth

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

I liked Zelma Lacey House because of the location. It's very convenient to stores, and its right behind a shopping center. It has a lovely little garden, the common areas looked beautiful, the food looked good, and the staff was very helpful.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

The staff are very friendly and helpful and the facility was so clean. I like that it is quiet yet bustling with activity. The rooms were a descent size so that everything isn't too far for the residents to have to get to. The place is spacious and beautifully decorated. My only problem is the limit on the amount of visitors that can come at once. I feel that they should be able to invite whoever they'd like to they're home.
