Assisted Living Reviews for Deer Meadows Retirement Community

I visited this facility

Deer Meadows has not gone through extensive remodeling and was just taken over by a new company. The way that it was being run was kind of restrictive, and I would not want to live there. There were a lot of different kinds of rooms, and you could enlarge a room by taking two rooms and putting them together to make one, long apartment, and that was very nice. The other rooms ranged from comfortably small to maybe a little too small. I did not get the sense that it was entirely a happy retirement community.

We were on a real tight budget, and Deer Meadows worked out a budget that we can afford. They travel to the local stores, and they take them out to a movie, but there's not as much activity as I thought there's going to be. My mom goes to bingo twice a week, and my dad plays cards once a week. I feel that they're safe there. The staff seems to be on top of things, but they can do more things to make them more active, and someone needs to take a hold of the activities per se and enhance it.

Facility was unkempt. Dietary was sub-standard and the meal was inappropriate for my father's phyical condition. TV was broken in his room. All in all I would stay way

My father was a short term resident at Deer Meadows. Our family could not ask for a better outcome for the care he received. The nursing staff were attentive to all his needs. The Rehab Department was excellent. My father did return once again after a hospital stay and again our family was very pleased his care. The facility is very clean and bright. I would recommend Deer Meadows for the excellent nursing care they provide.

About Deer Meadows Retirement Community

Deer Meadows Retirement Community is situated on seven acres of land and is conveniently located in Northeast Philadelphia. Offering independent living, personal care, secured memory care and skilled nursing, this community offers a continuum of care and is uniquely positioned to meet the changing needs of our residents. Originally founded in 1869 as The Baptist Home of Philadelphia, for nearly 150 years, Deer Meadows has been a provider of high-quality residential services that allow seniors to remain active and independent, while confident of the best assistance, support, and medical care. Residents are able to enter our community at any care level and do not have to pay a "buy-in" that many continuing care requires.

Our residents enjoy maintenance-free living in a safe, caring environment. Residents can choose from our beautifully appointed studio, one, or two-bedroom apartments. All our accommodations offer meals, housekeeping, and a recreational and social calendar for our residents' convenience. Our one and two-bedroom apartments have a full kitchen and washer/dryer. Studio units have kitchenettes with washer/dryer units on each floor. There is no need to move apartments if you step up from independent living to personal care, as we simply bring the care to you.

Deer Meadows Retirement Community is dedicated to attracting and retaining the best employees in each field, from our trained dining room staff to our highly skilled technicians in maintenance. All staff members from administrative to support and maintenance are carefully screened and undergo age-sensitive training. As a result, everyone at Deer Meadows works diligently to provide the high level of service that residents and their families have come to expect.
