Assisted Living Reviews for Commonwealth Senior Living at Leigh Hall

I visited this facility

I visited Leigh Hall. It was nice, light, and airy, but some of the places were kind of dark. The rooms with little kitchenettes. The staff had a wonderful attitude and were a cheery bunch. However, I did not see the patients smiling that much. I thought it was lunch time when we were there, so I guess they were kind of hungry. I liked everything about it. It was convenient to where I lived and close to where my daughter lived. They had a library. The whole thing was nice.

Leigh Hall was right in the commercial area. It was a former hotel, so the first floor with the dining room included was very posh. The bedrooms were adequate but not great. The people we talked to were nice and doing a special event for the people that live there. They have a special event at least one every week. The downstairs facilities were very nice, including the dining room, the sitting rooms, and the library.

I visited Leigh Hall for my mother. They were remodeling at that time, and I wasn't really impressed with the place. The staff seemed OK, but I just didn't like it.

I am a friend or relative of resident

After a long year of trying to find the perfect place to move my grandmother, Leigh Hall was recommended twice in a 24 hour period. I made an appointment, met with Ilene Lipton, and chose Leigh Hall. Since making that decision, I have been so pleased with everyone and everything. They were very accommodating to my time line. This decision was thrust upon me but Leigh Hall as a whole has been a blessing! They continue to take great care of my grandmother. I don’t know what I would have done without everyone here! They have taken the worry out of my day and let me be more concerned with just visiting instead of caretaking.

We just stopped by Leigh Hall Assisted Living one day and a lady took us on a tour. It was nice. My sister really liked it, but it was just too expensive. They have two nurses on staff. They have private rooms and semi-private rooms. They had just remodeled the place. They have a van so if you want to go to church, they can take you to church and back. They can also take you shopping. They have a special time of the day where you can go in the activity room to watch TV, play games, read, etc. You get three meals a day. You can eat in the dining room or you can eat in your room. One thing I like best about this community is that it is close to my sister's church.

Leigh Hall was a nice looking facility. Maybe I just went the wrong time of day when maybe most of the residents were out shopping or doing some activity. And therefore the ones that weren't participating in an activity were just sitting around quietly. So it just looked kind of desolate and depressing. But the lady who gave me the tour, Vera, was extremely nice.
