Assisted Living Reviews for The Wellington at Dayton

The Wellington at Dayton was my top pick. The building, location, and parking were nice. Inside, the social areas and the dining room were all very nice. The food was good. On each floor, they had a little kitchenette area where they would have a continental breakfast if you didn’t want to go down to the full dining room for breakfast. They had a very nice selection of different things for the residents to be involved in and seemed to have activities that are considered to be good and stimulating for the brain. I saw people sitting around the social areas. It looked like they were talking together and enjoying themselves. They allowed two pets, which is unusual. They had transportation off-site available and usually free within a generous radius around the building of 15 to 20 miles, and you pay a fee if you need to go further than that. It had laundry rooms available on each floor so that you could do your own laundry if you wanted to or if not, they could do it for you. They offered a special move-in rate if you moved in January. When I went back the last week of January, their price had gone up a couple of thousand dollars a month, and I was not real pleased with it.

My grandmother has really enjoyed her time at the Wellington. Although it was hard to leave her house and a tough decision we made the right call. She enjoys the food and dinner outings. Our biggest factor was bringing her dog, they accommodated this.

We chose The Wellington at Dayton because of our past experiences with it. We chose a one-bedroom apartment for Mom. They have parties on the patio, cookouts, and therapies. The facility itself is nice, but their nursing care is horrible.

We are very happy with The Wellington at Dayton. We are happy with the care my parents are getting there. The food is excellent. We just had Thanksgiving with them. The staff are very helpful. Sometimes, I think they are a little understaffed, but their needs are taken care of, so we are very happy with them. They have their own apartment -- a one-bedroom apartment with a kitchen, a bedroom with a walk-in closet, bathroom. There are many activities available there. It is a well-maintained community. I would suggest that they hire more staff, more nurses. But so far, I am very satisfied with their services.

We went to The Wellington at Dayton for a visit. Their staff was wonderful. They were helpful, caring, and very nice as well. The apartments were very nicely done, large, and well-priced. The whole area was immaculate. It was clean and cheerful. The food was delicious, and their dining area is very nice. We liked this place a lot.

My sister is at The Wellington at Dayton Advanced Living, which is one step up from assisted living because she doesn't need that much assistance yet. The place is lovely, and everyone is so friendly. She is very happy there. They have so much to offer and I'm just very pleased with it. She has an apartment with a living room, kitchen, a bedroom, and one room that she can use as a second bedroom or a dining room. She has a nice bathroom with a walk-in closet, a walk-in shower, and her own washer and dryer. They have a fitness room and they give her therapy for her balance and also a little bit of speech therapy. They have their own dining room and they have two free meals a day for the residents. The food is very good. I have eaten there a number of times. They have a game room and a multi-purpose room. They have choirs come in and different people for talks. They have a beauty salon. The staff is wonderful. She almost has some assisted living there because they give her something that she wears around her neck, and if she would get lost or if she would need help right away, all she had to do is press that and someone is there right away.

The Wellington at Dayton was very pretty and very nicely maintained. They have full kitchens in their little apartments. They also have two-bedroom, two-bath apartments. They have walk-in closets and stackable washer and dryers. If you want to do your own laundry, they have them in the larger apartments. Some of the apartments have little balconies. They have field trips, movies, bingo, and games. They have a transportation program if you need to be taken to a doctor and things like that. It was clean, nice, and well appointed. I have a friend who has an uncle that lives there and she told me that he is very happy there.

I looked at The Wellington when my dad was looking for independent living three years ago. I like the building. It was very nice, very new, and very well-maintained. The staff was friendly. I had a very nice tour. The rooms were very nice too. The dining area was nicely decorated and well-maintained. The food was good.

The Wellington at Dayton was very nice. The person who assisted me was very helpful. I saw their calendar and they have a lot of activities. The dining area was nice and clean.

Both of my parents are at The Wellington at Dayton. It's pretty nice, very clean, bright, and cheerful. Sometimes, the service is not great. They are understaffed, and there are times when the staff members don't show up when they are supposed to. However, the people are very nice and very caring in general. The food is good in quality and variety. The dining room is beautiful, as well. The other thing that it is lacking is that they have very few activities. I think they need to improve both in entertainment and in staffing.

The Wellington at Dayton was a wonderful place, and my mother loved it, but it was farther away from my sister and I, and she is just not ready to pay to live in a community. At first, she had a few objections like you had to take the elevator to the apartment. They had us stay until lunch, and they did a really nice job of presenting it. She really liked the place, and she told all of her friends about it. The living area could be slightly larger, but this is based on the fact that my mother is still very good. She is not limited in mobility, and it would be too small for her because she is used to having her own home. They apartment size would've been fine in the long run. They had a complete calendar of things. They had gardening and places where people were able to have flowers and plants, trips into Kettering -- which is a surrounding community -- barbecues outside, and movie nights. They had physical therapy available in the facility. It's a beautiful place. It seemed to be set up very well and appeared to run very smoothly.

My mom is in The Wellington. I think everybody there is very friendly. The staff seems very attentive. I will recommend them for independent living. I don't know anything about the assisted living because they are 2 separate facilities -- the independent and the assisted. The apartment is very spacious. Mom says breakfast is the best. She didn't really care for dinner, but breakfast is really good. I am very happy with what I have seen so far, and my mom is very happy there. They had a library. Everybody is very helpful and willing to assist. I like that it is a smaller campus and has a more homey feeling. If you want a smaller, tighter fit with a warm community, then you want the Wellington.

We chose Wellington for my dad because it's an apartment type facility. The staff were very helpful. They have activities for the residents. My dad loved the place, unfortunately he passed away after staying there for only two weeks.
