I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
My mother is in Abbey Park at Mill River. They have in-building care services provided by another company. She does have some help, and she's in hospice now, so they do have hospice support. They're in there a few times a week. That seems to be working OK, but I'm not sure how much longer that will work out. We have been very happy there. However, mom's getting to the point where she can't do much of anything for herself, and Abbey Park is independent living with some assisted living help. She's not very independent at all anymore. We're really happy with Abbey Park at Mill River. It's like two miles from my house, so it's very convenient for us. The activities are really limited. The dining room has opened up, so they have limited access to the dining room. They're still using social distancing in the dining room, but there really aren't a lot of activities. They are starting the bus back up -- I think they're limiting how many are allowed on the bus -- so they're starting to do shopping and doctors' appointments. They were dining in the dining room for all their meals, but now they only have the main meal of the day. My mom goes down for lunch. Some residents go for the evening meal, and those are the ones they're serving in the dining room. She likes the food; she never complained about the food. I've eaten there, and it's good food. The building itself is almost brand new. It's a very nice facility, they have good maintenance, they take good care of it. When they were having the activities I would give them a "four." My mom was going to choir practice, and they always have something for them to do, which is really nice. That's been hard with COVID.
