Assisted Living Reviews for Bertram House of Swampscott

I visited this facility

Bertram house is located just a block from the Swampscott beach. The area is quiet and has a breathtaking view of the ocean. The facility is well secure and is located in a safe community. The building exteriors look older however, residents' apartments are well maintained. Staff is available 24 hours to assist residents with basic daily needs but usually the residents who live in the facility are independent. During my visits to the facility, I have observed residents being served with well balanced meals. Staff also tries to engage in recreation activities such as playing bingo. I would recommend Bertram house of Swampscott to seniors who would like to live near the ocean.

The Bertram House is a clean, comfortable and respectful assisted living facility in Massachusetts. The facility offers clean private rooms for elderly patients looking for a community when they can no longer live at home. Bertram House offers three meals a day which can be eaten with the other residents in the dining room or privately in your room if you are unable to leave or if you would like to host guests. The house also calls in hair dressers and nail technicians for the residents. The common rooms are quite comfortable and often host games and other events such as movies and music. The only real negative to the location is that it is quite expensive and is often only partially covered by social security.

This assisted living facility is easy to get to"”if you know where you're going. The building is located off the main road, private but not secluded. There is adequate parking, and it's next to a football field with additional parking. This is a beautiful facility from the outside. And the attention you get when you walk in the door is the highest level of quality I've ever experienced. Someone"“from the receptionist to the director"”greets you and is quick to meet your needs. There's a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. The building is older, but has been well maintained. And it's decorated in a lovely fashion, with fresh flowers on the dining room table. There are also a few different areas for residents to congregate in"”including a library, conference room, and TV room. There is a also a beautiful outside patio and gorgeous yard and gardens, which some of the residents help tend. Some rooms have outside decks near the ocean; although the ocean's not quite visible, it still provides a soothing ambience. The rooms themselves are very comfortable and accommodating, with lots of closet space. There is a great staff to resident ratio and the residents all seem well cared for, in a personal and personable way. There is also an impressive dietician and the food offered is varied and fresh and plentiful, with an eye toward presentation. Engaging activities are offered for all residents, but particularly those on the memory care floor. Potential drawbacks: It's one of the most expensive facilities in the area"”and it's not part of a continuing care network, so residents who begin to need more care might have to move. -This reviewer, Debra Offenhartz, is an aging specialist with a master's degree in social work.
