I visited this facility

Ecumen Seasons at Maplewood is very nice. They have everything my parents wanted, but they just didn't go. The facility was very nice. The staff explained everything and showed us around. We saw one room. It was very nice, but it was too small for them; that's why we didn't continue on. The dining room was very nice. They offered different packages, which was very nice as well.

My mother is comfortable with Ecumen Seasons. It is home like. The staff and the nursing assistants are wonderful. They are friendly, outgoing and lovely people. When you walk in there, they know your name and remember you for who you are. They have a lovely dining facility. They have a great room that you feel comfortable in and you feel at home. They have movie theater and church services. They have exercise room. They have an enhanced assisted living, which is superb.

I really am happy that my grandmother is in a place where she is being taken care of and I honestly feel like the staff does a great job of making her feel like she is at home, even though it is not home. All of the staff is extremely friendly and willing to help if you have any questions for them. Also, my grandmother loves the food that is prepared for her, unlike when she is in the hospital, it is a battle to get her to eat. Another bonus of this facility is that it is extremely clean and my grandmother has her own room. My overall experience has been only positive things to say, let alone my grandmother feels the same way. I would tell and recommend to any family that you can trust your loved ones with Seasons at Maplewood. If I could give Seasons at Maplewood six stars, they deserve it.

My mom was still living in her own home and she didn't want to go into a nursing home. A lot of the assisted living buildings that have been around for many, many years, although they've been remodeled still have a real nursing home feel for them. But Seasons at Maplewood did not have that. In my opinion, they know what people want. The Ecumen building is only two years old, but it was hand-in-hand with another Ecumen building that was 25 years old. The staff seem great and I have not felt uncomfortable with anyone, from the chef, nurse, wait staff, and the concierge that's there from 8:00 in the morning till 8:00 at night. The main one, Lynn, she wears many hats and she's friendly. Everybody that works there seems to enjoy their jobs. My mother's room is huge. A 2-bedroom/2-bathroom apartment. It's over 900 square feet. I love their food. I've eaten their many times with her. Their price is not that bad, and anytime I want to eat with her, I just go on buy a ticket. And I have not had one bad meal yet, although my mom has had one.
