Reviews of The Residence at Chadd's Ford in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania
January 16, 2023
My mom moved into The Residence at Chadd's Ford. We chose it for the quality of the care, and the size of it, it was a smaller one. My mom has mobility issues, so we like the size of it. The location of her apartment is very convenient. The people were awesome. They impressed us. They're very friendly and empathetic, they're just very upbeat, great. They genuinely care about their residents. The meals are excellent. We had her 80th birthday a few days after she was in, and we had eight people there, and they did an awesome job. The food was great. They have everything from the PT and OT there. Doctors are coming in so she doesn't have to go anywhere for her primary care doctor or dermatologist. There's a movie theater. They had entertainment coming in, so it's great.

My mother is at The Residence at Chadd's Ford. We chose it because it's small and convenient, but there were a lot of complications with moving in. They weren't very informative or helpful. Unfortunately, we moved her in around Christmas and there were significant staff shortages at that time, so it was a very difficult move-in. She has since then adjusted, but the first two months were horrendous. They need to have more aides on staff and a smaller ratio of staff to patients. The staff is very nice. My mother loves their food. Due to COVID, some activities were curtailed. They have a salon and a little activity space, but there's no gym. I'm not getting what I'm paying for. It's basically convenient.

We went to The Residence at Chadds Ford. It's a new building, and it has the same sort of feel to it as the other place in that it's very up to date and very pleasant looking. I don't think it has quite the same warmth with the staff, though, and that was my reason for choosing the other place, but I wouldn't have any hesitation of having my mom there. The staff just lacked the personal warmth. It's a very nice facility, and it's closer to my house, so it was a good location.

The Residence at Chadd's Ford was lovely. I had a very thorough tour of the three different apartments in the whole building that we were allowed to tour. The chef sent me home with a pie, and it was delicious, boxed and hot right out of the oven. It's wonderful. The place was beautiful. The rooms were small, but beautifully done and beautifully decorated. It had a very cute closet, and the coat closet and pantry were shared. It would be a very huge transition for most people, from one independent living to another, unless you needed some physical care. It would be a consideration for me for a stopover. If I needed to go someplace, it would be a good choice, but for long time stay, it's not enough for my husband. The staff who gave me the tour was wonderful. It's the first of my looking, so I have to take the size as a consideration, that maybe this is just standard. It would be something to really get your head around on how much downsizing we're talking about. Some of these places are only as big as my bedroom. Their villa room was beautiful. Two of these rooms had a beautiful scenery, the rest of them, you look down on a major road. There were some cons, and that major road was definitely one of them, because that's not what I would wanna look at. They were all doing some kind of a book club when we walked by, but because of COVID, we really didn't go near any of the people. There wasn't anyone in the gym, but the place was only 40% capacity since the place is new. There was not a lot of activity going on, but I saw the activities up on the board. They had yoga and different things. They didn't have any amenities, like a pool, but they had lots of game rooms and social gathering areas. It's a beautiful place, but I don't know if I could live in something that small, even though it had all the other big rooms to visit and amenities.
