The staff is friendly and the campus has many amenities. Just be sure your family understands the financial aspect of the contract. My parents lived at an independent apartment at Charlestown for 3 years and needed to move to assisted living. They were on a waiting list for a year because they wanted a two bedroom place and there are not many of them. They ended up moving to a different assisted living place closer to family members. They were assessed $8000 for refurbishment. Refurbishment is in the contract and it states that it is based on what needs to be done to get the apartment back to move in condition-paint, new carpet and flooring... $8000 seems quite expensive for these renovations.

My wife and I have lived here for over 4 years now. Two of my sisters have moved here also, as we have more time for reach other. Our families are busy with their own lives. I have not been disappointed in any way. The opportunities for growth are all around. The employees are friendly as they do for us what we used to do for ourselves when we lived in our own homes. We do have employees who have been here a long time. What a blessing that is for us.

If you cannot find the club that matches your interests (there are over 300 clubs we're told) you can start one of your own at Charlestown. You'll have an immediate prospect field of over 2000 inquiring-minds to tell your story to. Or you can stay to yourself and read a book, or pitch horse shoes, play Bocce, shoot billiards, join the Stage, do art, sing, dance, play cards, sail model boats, play golf, tennis and pickle ball. Knit. Sew, be a resident council member, or play cards. Have pet? bring it with you. Do stuff you have always wanted to do but were too busy to take it up.

My Mom has been in Dorsey for rehab for 3 days now and I am not impressed. She's supposed to have 3 breathing treatments a day. She had none the 1st day, 1 the second day and yesterday, I finally asked why she hadn't had any that day. It was 7pm. The nurse that came in seemed not to care at all. Just a lot of oh really, hmm, let me check on that. The staff seems apathetic at best. For all the money she's spending living there, you'd think she'd be getting excellent care. Instead, we have to stay on top of them just to get them to do their jobs. **Update - Day 4 and things changed drastically. Maybe it was emotions on my part thinking the staff didn't care. Maybe people were having a bad few days. Whatever the reason, they stayed on top of things and her round the clock. Now that she's back in her own place, they'll actually come to her for her needs. I hope I'm lucky enough to live there when the time comes.
