Independent Living Reviews for The Rockwood

May 12, 2016

By ElizabethMCYTL

I visited this facility

Rockwood is small in a good way but a little bit older and dark inside, so I don’t think it’s going to be a right fit because it’s not updated. I liked that the rooms were quite spacious with a good-size kitchen and a good-size living space and bedroom. The staff is very friendly and very clear about the information.

Provider Response

Thank you for visiting the Rockwood. The Rockwood is definitely an older building. It was built in 1928. As far as being updated, the building was restored in 2006 with all new plumbing, electric, call systems, fire systems, central air and heat. During that process though, they restored it back to its 1930's grandeur. It has beautiful new kitchens and restored bathrooms. Original restored hardwood floors throughout. All dark oak moldings and doors. The tall ten foot ceilings and six foot tall windows help balance out the oak. So yes, it looks old but because it's on the National Historic Registry and maintains its original English Tudor style and beauty. We understand many like the newer, bigger buildings, which is perfectly okay. Our Residents love the classic Bed & Breakfast feel of our building. It's not an institutional or facility feel, it's a feeling of being home.
