Continuing Care Retirement Community Reviews for The Commons in Lincoln

December 14, 2015

By Sally R1

I visited this facility

The Commons seems more sophisticated than other places. Their rooms were bigger, which is nice. Their health building was not quite finished yet when we visited, so we didn’t get to see it. The staff members were very good. It is fairly close to the Boston area where there are lots of things to do; however, there were no walking places nearby the facility. There’s no real place to get out and walk as it’s very close to a highway. It seems like there are a lot of buildings in a small space. They have activity rooms and areas for snacks and drinks.

Provider Response

Thank you for your comments! We value your feedback. Please note that Walden Pond is a little over a mile walk away down some country roads. Please let us know (781-430-6000) if you have any questions or if we can assist you in any way.

I took a tour at The Commons in Lincoln, and this place is excellent. They have a lot of activities, and they have a beautiful pool; very large. They also don’t seem to have old people living there.

The Commons in Lincoln has a very expensive buy-in. That's not what my mother wants, and I don't think it's good enough. There's a lot of construction going on right now because they're building a nursing facility as well as a separate assisted living even though in all the apartments, people can have assisted living too. It's very pretty. It has a lot of land, you can walk around, plus it's very easily accessible to Route 2, which means it's easy for me to get there. The person who took me around was very nice. Everybody seemed very friendly. They had great facilities. If that weren't such an expensive buy-in place, that would've been my #1, and that doesn't include the monthly fees.

Provider Response

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. Individualized care is one of our hallmarks as we strive to meet the distinct needs of each resident. Please know that while The Commons in Lincoln is a Continuing Care Lifecare Retirement Community, Benchmark Senior Living has 50 Independent or Assisted Living communities throughout New England. Please feel free to contact us as one of those might be more appropriate for you and your family.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I'm at The Commons in Lincoln now. It is convenient to where I used to live. Also, they're planning to build a memory unit and skilled nursing, too. The staff's work attitude is very good. We have more things to do in a day. This afternoon, I went to two classes. Tomorrow, there would be a lecture by a professor.
