Costs

When deciding on a senior living option, there are many things that contribute to the value you receive for your monthly rent. While there are tangible benefits such as a private apartment, three chef-prepared meals per day, transportation, daily engagement activities, 24-hour staffing and security and more, there are many less tangible but highly valuable aspects as well.

The administrator [name removed] is above and beyond. She has really done a great job with our move-in and our placement. My parents can't say enough good things about the nurses and PCAs there. They're very helpful, friendly, and professional. The facility is always clean. Their trash is taken out regularly, carpets are vacuumed, floors washed, beds are made. My parents tell me the food is excellent. I think it's a really good value.

We went with The Residence at Orchard Grove because they were willing to waive the up front fee for us. The communication with the director up top the point that mu uncle actually went into the facility was wonderful. Once he was here there were a few issues that did arise and the communication was poor and I was disappointed with that. They had plenty of great activities provided for the residents but he did not participate. I would definitely recommend them to others looking, overall the quality of care is top notch in my opinion.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident The Residence at Orchard Grove is a beautiful facility. The food is available 24/7 if you want to eat and it's been very easy and a very wonderful experience for my father. There's a refrigerator, a stove, and a microwave in his apartment. The staff has been marvelous so far. They've been very helpful and the residents have been nice, too. There's stuff going on in the morning and afternoons. They take day trips, they're doing a lobster bake this summer, they have different cookouts, and a happy hour every day. They had a singer yesterday doing 40's music. So, everything is covered and taken care of.

We really liked The Residence at Orchard Grove, it seemed like a nice facility. We were impressed with the lady who was showing us around on the tour. We did not like the rooms, the layout of it was strange which is why we decided against them.

I have a family member that lives at Orchard Grove and this place is amazing. The staff is so attentive and always smiling, take the best care of my loved one. When you drive up to Orchard Grove it feels as if you are pulling into a lodge up in NH, warm and fuzzy. Great job Orchard Grove! Karen, the granddaughter of a special loved one.

Went on a virtual tour for my mom. This is a five start facility for sure. Only 3 years old and well maintained. Look like new with all the modern conveniences. 1 bedroom seem spacious and would be a good fit for my mom coming from a 2 bedroom beautiful condo. Many activities and options. Loved that they can have their dining room open 7am-7pm so not on such a tight schedule. 24-7 nursing on site.

I live three hours away. The place is understandably in lockdown from coronovirus and their response to protect everyone has been outstanding. My husbands father fell at his house so we need to visit him in Waltham Sunday. I think ok, I need to see my parents as I can now see them for half an hour visits and I will be down there to see my father in law! Orchard groove has a very safe outdoor , socially distanced visitation situation. I call only to find out there is no visiting on sundays but they had a time slot Saturday I could come. Well I explained that wouldn’t work and was told sorry That I couldn’t come on Saturday. I hung up in tears and emailed management and went on their fb page. I got a response in about an hour back via email and phone saying they would make an exception under these circumstances. So they get four stars instead of the one star I initially posted when I was thinking all was lost. Not a five because : 1. There needs to be more proactive measures so as not to cause undue stress 2. Perhaps more training for any substitutes when normal person isn’t there as Mary Beth has always been great, but go figure she wasn’t there today. 3. Maybe a longer visit ( I would take even 45 minutes) for those that come from a far.

I think since it is a smaller place it has much more personal interaction. Everyone is on a first name basis, very friendly. Very personal one on one care. If they do not see someone they seek them out to make sure everything is okay. Food is excellent, fairly new and a very pretty place.

My 90 year old mom has a new lease on life since moving to Orchard Grove! It's a beautiful facility, we'll run, EVERYONE from the front desk, to the aids, to the chef & servers, to the building services and ALL the management have been awesome - that is not an exaggeration. Not only has my mom found a new family that truly cares about her, I too have made lots of friends with the residents & staff! I have a friend whose mom is in another assisted living facility which I have visited and there's no comparison. Residents can eat in the full service restaurant ANYTIME from 7am to 7pm. If my mom wants shrimp scampi (her favorite) for breakfast, she has it! My mom lives in a small studio that's perfect for her and with a little creative decorating, it really feels like home for her. She's safe, medications are administered by the staff, they clean her apartment, do her personal laundry and bedding for her once per week and bathe her three times per week. As my mom has become more mobile & more independent, the assisted living costs were adjusted. The cost is expensive, but less costly than other similar facilities and you really get what you pay for. The facility director Ellen immediately addresses every question we've had. No matter what she always resolves an issue right away, even when she's on vacation!! All the staff treat the residents with lots of love and care, even an occasional grumpy resident 😉 it's truly a family and I'm so grateful for this experience. My mom deserves the best, OG has changed my her life in ways you can't imagine.

I looked at several assisted living communities with memory care. Most seem more like nursing homes. My mom is in a wheelchair and needs some level of assistance 24 hours a day. She has vascular dementia but if she were not in a wheelchair could still function in traditional asssisted living. The Residence of Orchard Grove was the best decision I could have made for my mom. The people are very caring and ensure my mom integrates with the traditional assisted living as well as with residence living in the memory care. She has friends in both areas. The socialization has actually helped her memory quite a bit. They go out on average once a week. The activities staff groups the outings in a way that they are with different people which I think is great. The food is excellent and I enjoy joining my mom on Friday’s for appetizers and a glass of wine during their Happy Hour. My mom will always want to go back home but she always says, “If I have to be somewhere because of my broken hip I’m glad you found this place” no place can truly replace her home but I know she is safe and well cared for. The facility is beautiful and her apartment is a good size. I wish this would become the new model for memory care. Our moms and dads deserve better than what the majority of facilities offer. Thank you Residence of Orchard Groce! And thank you A Place For Mom for recommending it.

Bernadette The Residence at Orchard Grove
My mom has been here for about 7 months. She is memory impaired and is in a wheelchair. I cannot say enough about the staff and Brenda, the Director of Reflections. They are so kind to my mom and are always joking with her. They are constantly trying new activities to keep all of the residence engaged which is so important. It was the hardest decision I have ever made and everyone at the Residence understands and makes the process as easy as possible. I am so impressed with Brenda. She is professional and very experienced. She truly understands dementia and is filled with patience and compassion. My mom's apartment is a good size and is kept clean, which is so important to her. She has enough independence to feel whole but there is enough supervision for me to feel she is safe. My mom has made friends on both the traditional side and in the memory care unit. She loves the outings they go on every week. I am so so grateful I found this place!

The Residence at Orchard Grove
My mom has been at the Residence at Orchard Grove for almost 7 months. She is memory impaired and in a wheelchair. I was not sure memory care in an Assisted Living setting would be enough care because she would forget she could not walk. After meeting with the Director of the Memory Care unit I decided to take a leap of faith. I have been so happy I made the decision. My mom had been at a nursing home for a time and I watched her literally loosing her mind. Since she has been at the Residence she has made friends, both on the traditional side and in the memory care unit. She has enough independence to feel whole again but I feel confident she has enough supervision to be safe. The food is great, her apartment is a good size and kept clean. The aides are so kind to her and the director of the memory care unit is professional, experienced and so very sweet. They try to have outings at least once a week which is so good for my mom. I am so happy we found the Residence.

I brought Mom and Dad to Orchard Grove a little over a month ago and have been so impressed by the progress my parents have made. The staff make them feel so at home and they are thriving. They eat as often as they want from a large menu, with items like filet mignon (YUM!) and I've even seen them gain, weight which we were worried about before. They have excellent programs and lectures which my parents enjoy, and they go out on trips to all sorts of places. I'm loving this new addition to Shrewsbury and would be happy to recommend such a beautiful, well-run establishment.

I just wanted to mention the reflections program and how wonderful it is. It really feels like home. The staff is great. They are helpful when I ask questions, they answer. The director, Brenda is so kind and very caring as if my grandmother were her own. She is very dedicated and informative. She thinks outside the box when it comes to creativity which is great for all. I am very please with everyone’s hard work. Thank you!

The Residence at Orchard Grove has been doing a great job so far. They are a brand new community, and the apartment they offered was just right for my loved ones. I will say that the aids at the community have various skill levels, so consistency can be difficult to obtain. Otherwise, the staff is friendly and accommodating, the community is clean, and there are a lot of things to do for the residents. However, one of the places I feel the community shines strongest is the food. Meals are excellent here, very complete with a lot of variety. I would strongly recommend The Residence at Oak Grove to others.
