My mother-in-law will be moving into The Wellington at Dayton. First of all, she lives in an apartment complex that is right next door to this facility, she is familiar with the area, so we know that it will be an easier transition for her to go there. We went in and the facility is very nice, and very clean. The people were extremely friendly. We went around dinnertime, and all the residents had gone into the dining room. They seemed very happy, were carrying on conversations, and walking out together. They have a lot of services for her like crafts and different things that she can do. They have transportation to get her to and from her doctors' appointments. They have a hair salon right there on premises that is very affordable that she'll be able to use. The apartment is the same size as where she is living in right now, so all her furniture will fit there. The smallest apartment fits her price point, and they also have an assisted living right next door if she progresses and needs to be moved at some point. We saw their menu, and we saw the food basically being served to the residents there. The dining area is beautiful, and the kitchen is very nice. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the food. The one who assisted us was very knowledgeable, very friendly, and she interacted with the residents. They all seem to know her, and were glad to see her when we walked through the halls. She showed us two different apartments, she took extra time with us, and we appreciated that. One apartment that we saw, which would be the size that she would want, was being refurbished at that point. Someone had just moved out, so it hadn't been painted yet, so it wasn't perfect, but it had new carpet down.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience. We have a wonderful group of residents and staff here and are so glad you felt that during your visit. Thank you for putting your trust in our community to provide a wonderful retirement living experience for her. We know she will make great friends and enjoy her time here!
