Assisted Living Reviews for Commonwealth Senior Living at Front Royal

I visited this facility

Commonwealth Senior Living at Front Royal was more affordable to me. It was lovely. In the apartments, they have a memory place too. The only thing that bothered me was the elevator. I would recommend them though. It was wonderful. They have snack trays where residents can get things during the day if they need a snack. I tried something from there, and it was very good.

We really liked Commonwealth Senior Living at Front Royal, but it was a bit pricier than other places and it had no availability. The overall feel was very nice. They had their own locally sourced food, and that was a high plus for us. They even own some of the farms that they get their food from. It was a really nice place. If they had availability and if they weren't quite so pricey, they would've been really higher on our list. I didn't get to eat the food, but it looked good, and the menu selection was good. The staff was very helpful. It was a really nice building.

Commonwealth Senior Living at Front Royal was beautiful, but I wouldn't ask my husband to stay there. The person was very pushy; I was not impressed. For activities, they were tossing a ball back and forth and that was it. I checked everything, but I didn't bother going into the kitchen because at that point, I had already made up my mind.

My father has already been placed at Commonwealth of Front Royal (Commonwealth Assisted Living at Front Royal). He has only been there for a couple of days. They were the only people that had memory care here. That’s where he went. The staff was friendly. The nurse was very informative. The place appeared to be very clean and taken care of. I think there are probably 20 to 30 residents in the memory care. They seem to care for all of their residents. They have a library, activities room, and decorations.

So far our experience with Commonwealth has been excellent. The staff is very loving, caring, and they treat everybody like family. They’re very attentive, always sharing with us the things that they see; and what we see, we share them together. My mother-in-law’s room is nice, and large-sized with a nice large bathroom. It’s very clean, very quiet, and the food is really good. They have a nice chef that cooks very well.

I placed my father in Commonwealth. It is a better facility than all the other ones I visited. I think the staff is very educated and treated the family members well. The place is very clean; they do a great job.

My husband was a past resident of Commonwealth. He was there from July 1st through October 9th. It's a clean facility, a very nice building, and furnished very nicely. They had construction going on at the time, but they kept it as clean as they could considering that. It had some really good people that really care and take their job seriously, but there were people who don't. They were not trained to work with people who have memory problems, specifically Alzheimer's people. Everything went fine until my husband's Alzheimer's characteristics started kicking in, and that's when they demanded that I hire somebody to go in there. They kicked him out twice because of his belligerent behavior. I was paying them to do a job, they couldn't do it, and they were demanding that I help them when I was paying them to do that job. They care more about aesthetics of the building than they do about their residents.

Provider Response

Dear Caring100327350, Thank you for providing this feedback. I am very sorry that your experience with our community was not the experience that you expected.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I lost my husband Al on February 25, 2013. We were married for 62 years. Our future was unsure but we were in it till the end. Al’s motto of Que Sera Sera, and mine of Let it Be saw us through many trials and blessings. Now I have to live a different life. I was terrified of being “ALONE.” But I am happy to say I am far from alone. The staff are so loving and caring. I’ve made many new friends and I feel safe, loved and cared for. I must say there is not a grouch in the house! Welcome Home is a perfect and true expression of my new home. As for my one point of contention it is the food. But I feel they try to serve healthy food. And no one will like or eat all the food all the time. You cannot please everyone. Que Sera Sera, Let it Be!

They are more than staff, they are family. The care of the nursing and administrative staff, both to the residents and to the residents’ families, was outstanding. The staff truly cared about the residents, both physically and emotionally. The residents’ families were kept timely informed and included as much as possible in every aspect of the daily lives and well-being of the residents. The staff treated the residents and the family of the residents like the staff’s own family.

My mother was very happy with all aspects of her care till the facility was purchased by another company. Then the quality of care went south. The new management decided to transport all residents to the downstairs dining room for lunch and dinner with the independent living residents. My mother was happy to go to the dining room that was close to her apartment, which was the one providing meals for the nursing home and assisted living residents. Under the new rules, all residents had to go to the independent living dining room in the basement, via the one elevagtor in the building. This procedure meant that two times a day, all available staff had to gather the nursing home residents and assisted living residents, line them up in the hallway, make their way to the downstairs dining room, then transport them back to their rooms. The staff was running themselvews ragged, making several trips gathering residents,then transporting them back to their rooms. My mother was so traumatized by this process that we had to eventually pay for tray service for her meals to be delivered to her room. We eventually moved mother to a different facility where she was treated like a person and not as a statistic in a so-called business decision. My stars all go to the staff (I would give all 5 stars) for their dedication and service to the residents.

Located in a safe, charming neighborhood, The Southerlands has many activities and has a very strong community outreach program. A wonderful perk to this community is the levels of care The Southerlands provides from independent elderly care to assisted living, and full-care nursing home. Also, located very close to the town hospital, this is an extremely safe environment if immediate care is needed. In addition, the town of Front Royal is located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley which is a perfect atmosphere for anyone who loves trees, rivers & fresh mountain air. Many historic landmarks also endow the town of Front Royal as a major Civil War landmark, and is a great place to rediscover our nation's past with many small days trips & activities. The Southerlands prides its establishment with keeping your loved ones active with a small but clean fitness center, a studio with Yoga & Tai Chi classes available, and even many golf courses nearby! The rooms are standard, nothing extraordinary, but comfortable, clean & well thought out. All in all, if you're looking for a safe, social, active environment for your loved one, The Southerlands is well worth checking in to.
