My mom has been at the Christian Fellowship house for three years. This place is great and beautiful! They really care a lot if they think there’s an issue they call you. She shares a room and has a pretty view of the horses in the back. During non Covid they had exercise classes, word games. My is always clean and has her hair done pretty..I definitely recommend this assisted living. !

The staff at Christian Fellowship are wonderful. They truly care about the resident and treat them like family. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is just like a bed and breakfast. The grounds are gorgeous and well maintained. There are so many activities they provide for the resident to keep them busy and engaged. The annual holiday party is something to look forward to for the resident and their family.

My mom is has been a resident of Christian Fellowship House for almost 2 years. I had looked at several other facilities before deciding on CFH. The assisted living facility is housed in a converted mansion on beautiful grounds. It is a smaller facility, so it feels more like a home. The bedrooms and living areas are well appointed. There are always activities available for those who wish to participate. The staff is wonderful and will go out of their way to assist you with whatever concerns you may have. This is an independent and family run business and you can see this in the level of care they offer. Mom is very happy and content here.

We saw Christian Fellowship House, but it turned out not to be a good fit for my mom because most of the rooms do not have bathrooms in the bedroom itself, and it's too much for her to walk down the hallway to use a restroom. It was a lovely, very nice place. The grounds were beautiful, and the staff was friendly. The downside was the layout of the rooms, most of the rooms were double rooms as opposed to single, and the bathrooms were down the hall.

My mother-in-law was a resident for two years prior to her passing. While able to walk with a walker independently when she entered, she had dementia and needed a good deal of assistance with daily living. The staff and management were wonderful, giving her dignity and understanding her personal preferences in food, activities, etc. The facility is on 10 beautiful acres and offered serenity for my mother in law who had enjoyed her sitting out viewing her own backyard before needing to relocate. My wife and I were always confident that Mildred was safe and receiving excellent, personalized care. This place is an answer to prayer. It has only +/- 45 residents and a very attentive, loving staff.

We chose Christian Fellowship House for my mother. It's like a mansion that's been converted. She has improved there, and she has that feeling of comfort and security. Her stress level is a lot lower, so she's much more interactive. This was a very good move for her. It reminds her of her family. It has elements of things that are reassuring. It's a very quiet community. The whole area is very mellow and quiet and it's a really good fit for her. The staff is very interactive and on top of things. The food seems to be pretty good. She hasn't complained about it. The activities are enough to engage her. It's very good. She seems to be pretty content with everything.

I wasn't impressed with Christian Fellowship House. The people were not motivated to do well. The staff member came up, introduced themselves to me, and told me that when I live there they'll provide me with a buddy to show me around and I can ask that Buddy questions. The facilities were beautiful, decorated very cheerfully, and very welcoming.

Christian Fellowship House was a lovely place. I saw a single room and a double room that had two beds in it. The staff was fantastic, absolutely lovely, very welcoming, warm, congenial, and polite. The place was very pretty, and the grounds were phenomenal. They also have a lot of activities. I was very happy with the placem but it was a little farther away. Their pricing was really good too. The dining room and the sitting areas were lovely. It had a lot of antiques like an old mansion. What makes the place really good is the fact that it's smaller and only has around 40 residents, so everything is personalized in many ways. All the residents looked very happy. The only thing I didn't like was that there were no bathrooms in the rooms.

Provider Response

Thank You so much for the lovely review. Many of our bedrooms have a bath inside the room. You probably looked at one where the bathroom was next to the room. We are usually full capacity, so sometimes the only one available might not be the one you desire. But the best idea is to come in, & then when your preferred room opens up we can always move you. Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us.

We moved from PA to NY a few years ago and we had to move my Mom from her facility in Pennsylvania to a facility in the Syosset area. We received some recommendations from friends that included the Fellowship House. As soon as we walked in, spoke to Pam, and met some of the staff, we were convinced it was the right place. In her PA facility Mom was introverted, largely stayed in her room, and avoided most social situations. She complained constantly and was almost never in a good mood. Only a few weeks after joining the Fellowship House family Mom's mood was turned around. She was active with the other residents, her complaining vanished, and she was overall happy. Over the past two years the staff at the Fellowship House have proven to be very caring, attentive, and professional partners in the care of Mom. I stress partners because they are very good about communicating suggestions, issues, any status changes in a clear, timely, and caring way. The care at the Fellowship House has been great, and given Mom's progress, we would highly recommend the Christian Fellowship House.

My experience with the Christian Fellowship House could not have been better. The staff there was very nice and helpful with all of the procedures and care they provided. I liked how involved and kind the staff was to the people staying there, and how close and involved some of them would get. The rooms and areas were very spacious and beautifully decorated, giving a feeling of liveliness and excitement. There where many activity rooms such as for music and games. I also really liked how that i was able to visit any time I wished and the staff there were very accommodating with all of my fathers needs. He genuinely enjoyed the food there and the people he got to meet while staying there.
