Assisted Living Reviews for Mayfair House

May 15, 2012

By ELS002

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My visits to Mayfair Manor Assisted Living Facility were generally positive. Each time I visited, a staff member greeted me at the door and asked who I wanted to visit. Then, I was escorted to my great aunt's room. On my last visit, a staff member advised me that my aunt's alzheimer's had advanced and so she was moved to a different wing of the facility so that she could be more secure and monitored. The facility always appeared clean and the staff was pleasant. The rooms were like home away from home. My aunt had pictures on the walls and a television in her room. However, the rooms were a little small. The lounge area of the facility was spacious and seemed to be a popular hang out spot for the residents. There was a large television in the lounge and some magazines to aimed at keeping the residents entertained. Overall, my opinion of Mayfair Manor is positive.
