Assisted Living Reviews for Fellowship Village

March 23, 2023

By LC Laurita

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

In January 2012 our parents researched area CCRCs and began the application process to retire to Fellowship. Sadly, our father passed in April 2012. In July 2012, our mother Frances moved into Fellowship's Independent Living community, where for six years, as a Life Care Resident, she happily enjoyed independence and friendships within a wide array of Enrichment and Volunteer programs/activities, and delighted in dining in Fellowship's Bistro and Terrace Dining Room, and attending theatrical and concert productions in Fellowship's Siemenske Theater. In September 2018, due to increasing cognitive losses, our mom transitioned to Fellowship's Assisted Living community where for the past five years, three moves due to structural renovations, a pandemic, and her progressing dementia, she continues to enjoy (relative) independence while feeling safe and content at Fellowship. Selflessly our mom finds great solace in that she spared my brother and me the burden of "having to make difficult decisions and place her somewhere." Though it has taken me almost eight years to recognize our parents' selfless wisdom, I hope that this review brings peace and grace to adult children whose parents lovingly possess the insight to plan and choose to retire to Fellowship Village. To this day, our mom remembers how content she is living at Fellowship, and my brother and I remain grateful.

I visited Fellowship Village, and it is very nice. All the places are very nice. But I decided more on the basis of not only the largest room than many people get but also on the fact that the other facility is located in an area that I am familiar with and that I have ties adjacent to. It looks very nice, but the location of Fellowship Village is just further away. As far as the facilities are concerned, it was probably just as nice. The location played a great part in where I wanted to go. The facilities offered are very similar, and it is a very nice place, but it is mainly further away in an area that I am not familiar with.

We liked the area of Fellowship Village, but we have not committed yet. I can’t say anything negative about it. We were able to stay there for 3 days and 2 nights. The first night, we ate in a formal dining room where you choose your own menu. It was very nice. The next night was a buffet; it was good. The rooms were fantastic. We loved it. It’s VERY nice, clean, and adequate. The people were very friendly, and the staff were fantastic. They couldn’t be nicer or more pleasant. We will definitely recommend them to others.

Absolutely fantastic community! My grandma has been living there for a few months now. I was admittedly worried about her living alone, but it seems as if she is never alone! The staff takes such phenomenal care of her, and the residents have such a strong sense of community that she felt instantly very welcomed. The facilities are amazing too - beyond that, there are so many different activities, events, and ways to get involved. I’ve also joined her for lunch a few times and the food is very impressive - I personally would be happy eating there every day. I feel very lucky that we found this place and it has been so good to my grandma!

We moved my mother from California to the Fellowship Village this summer. My girlfriend's parents had been there for 12 years and were so happy there and she insisted that I go and look at the place, and I am so glad I did. My 90 year old mother has adjusted so well, she has made so many good friends, she loves her apartment, food, concerts, movies, her morning walks. All the staff members are so caring, every one of them. And the nicest part is fellow residents, they are so supportive of each other. It really has brought such a peace of mind to everybody in the family . It really wasn't the nearest facility for me or for my brother, but I checked out many other facilities closer to Manhattan, and decided that Fellowship Village, a non-profit organization that prides in qualifty of care they provide as well as the constantly re-investing to improve the facility for their residents is the place that I trust the most for my mother. I am so grateful to everyone at the Fellowship Village.

My experience with Fellowship Village Senior Living was very good. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were small, but the place was very clean. They have a bistro, a dining room, indoor and outdoor bar, pool, gym, and TV hall.

My husband and I moved here 4 years ago when his health was declining. We had done a lot of research on CCRCs in the region, so we believed that the support he’d receive here would be the best possible. it turned out to be even better—in multiple ways--than we had hoped, right to the end of his life. What I did not expect was that being here would be so good for me. I had hoped to stay in my former home, in my former town, forever. But this is much, much better. FV is a wonderfully welcoming, caring and interesting community to be part of, with lots of activities to choose from (and no pressure to choose any), an excellent staff, beautiful and ample grounds, attractive apartments and really good food.

We moved in to Fellowship Senior Living in September 2017 and are very pleased with our decision. The residents and staff are extremely friendly and supportive and we enjoy the strong, warm social life in the community. The quality of the food is excellent, with many choices in both the Bistro and formal dining room to meet any taste. It is very helpful to have the nutritional breakdown for entrees when making a choice... and I don't have to clean up after meals! Our new home was completely redone to our taste and we love the spacious rooms. I am a walker and have found great joy in the natural beauty of the paths that wind through farmland and gardens surrounding FSL. We are very excited about the new wonderful Cultural Arts Center and have already attended several events and productions there. The large expansion of the health center, using the household floor plan model, as well as all the amazing interior changes that have been made create a very exciting and vibrant place to live.

Nursing Home Reviews for Fellowship Village

We first found Fellowship Village when my mom required rehab after a hospital stay in 2019. We were very happy with the facility and staff and the care that she received. Since then my mom was a resident in Assisted Living and subsequently transitioned to Skilled Nursing approximately 2 years ago, where she currently resides. The Household model provides more of a community feel and the facilities are updated and very clean and welcoming. Relative to other facilities that we explored, I felt that Fellowship had the most amenities and on site medical access through its Health Center. The nursing staff is high quality, responsive and has always been very diligent in checking for and caring for any wounds (which my mom is prone to based on her health profile). We've also been very happy with the rest of the staff. They do a good job communicating with families and offering activities for the residents to engage with. Overall, we have been very pleased with the care my mom has received at Fellowship Village during her time there.

Continuing Care Retirement Community Reviews for Fellowship Village

By Cobriniks

I am/was a resident of this facility

The Cobriniks are the first Fellowship family to join Fellowship as two generations with individual apartments-- a 93 year old father, an 87 year old mother and a 62 year old daughter. And so we have a wide perspective regarding what we need and wished for at the village. We have been here for 8 months. The three of us are extremely pleased and happy with our living quarters: both apartments have a full kitchen and living room, one bedroom for the daughter, and a one bedroom plus den for the parents. Both apartments have balcony. Meals, activities, potential medical services met or excelled our expectation. However, what we found most gratifying are the PEOPLE; the residents, administration and team members have been open, warm , friendly and helpful. The residents come from different religious, ethnic and political backgrounds. Our discussions are generally knowledgeable and mutually respected. We have made friendships with folks from all groups. Many activities and committees are led by residents, with advice and support of multiple administrators. Team members care for us with delicious meals, moving, and all that makes a comfortable living environment. Their responses to our requests has been really great! All of this is enhanced by a 72 acre magnificent natural environment which invites us along many paths where we meet up with others in all seasons. When you have such really good people working with you at all levels and a beautiful environment, everything falls into place.

My mother has lived at Fellowship Senior Living for 5 years. She moved in as an Independent Living resident, and at the necessary time, transitioned to Assisted Living. The staff at Fellowship has always placed my mother's needs first when making any care decision. The Life Enrichment Coordinator knows my mother well, and will recommend appropriate activities/trips if she has not already signed up to participate. The nursing staff is compassionate and thorough, they know my mother's likes and dislikes, interests and idiosyncrasies. To address another review criticizing the pending move of their loved one to a new room, yes, there have been delays getting the new building completed enough for a certificate of occupancy. With that said, the move took place yesterday. Every staff member was on hand to help execute this difficult task, displaying their typical patience and caring demeanor that I have seen throughout. This newly constructed wing implements the new industry model of residential households. This smaller community will greatly enrich my mother's experience, allowing her to engage more regularly in tasks of daily living. I am grateful for the resources that Fellowship has put into the property to implement this improvement. From the user perspective of a caring family member, I couldn't be happier with my mother's choice to live Fellowship Senior Living.

I have a one-bedroom apartment at Fellowship Village. It is a lovely place out in the country. The staff is excellent. I help welcome possible future residents and with the bingo games. The food here varies and is not consistent; sometimes it's great, other times not good. The residents are delightful, friendly, and outgoing. We have a lot of activities and a limo that takes the Catholics to the Catholic Church on Sundays, even though this place is nonsectarian.

Fellowship Village CCRC has assisted living and an excellent rehab facility. It’s a beautiful facility. They have a very good nursing staff and aides. It was a good experience. I just couldn’t get my dad in there because there was no availability since they have a lot of permanent patients there. They have independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, sub-acute rehab, and outpatient rehab. My father was in the sub-acute rehab portion of it.

Fellowship Village is beautiful. They have everything from independent living to assisted living, health care, dementia care, and housing if you need it. Their food is wonderful, like everything else -- very broad menu, lots of options, and always fresh. The staff is fabulous and very good. There’s a pool and game room, and they take people on trips. They have concerts, programs, and courses residents can take, too.

Memory Care Reviews for Fellowship Village

May 11, 2020

By Blessed Daughter and Wife

You can look at facilities all day, every day, but the heart of Fellowship Village is the caring, conscientious, tireless, professional staff. For the last 16 years, my mother has lived in all areas from Independent Living to her current home in Memory Care. I now have my husband, who has advanced dementia, in a room right next to Mom's. Prior to COVID, I would visit several times a week. I can say, unequivocally, the staff treats the residents like whole people who deserve to have their desires met, their fears eased, their appearance appropriate, clean, and comfortable. The staff learns and accommodates the residents likes and dislikes of food, which dining table where the resident is most comfortable, which chair the resident likes in the living room, etc. They know no size fits all! The rooms are spacious and private; the menus are varied and tasty; decorations go up for each holiday; there are parties for residents alone, as well as with families; the Enrichment Staff brings music, art, and discusses current events along with remembering moments in history. Once a week, weather permitting, the residents who are physically able and interested are taken on a nice bus ride. They enjoy those outings! Having two of the most important people in my family at Fellowship Village, I interact with the staff regularly. They are good people!
