Charlene The Residence at Selleck's Woods
My parents moved into Selleck's Woods at the end of April after years of contemplating "downsizing". I was worried sick that they were going to hate me for encouraging them to move to an assisted living facility because "we don't need assistance". Thankfully I was wrong, they are both enjoying themselves and meeting new people and becoming active again! After being locked down for Covid for nearly 2 years, they both were deteriorating mentally and physically. Now, they go to exercise classes and movie night! My Mom calls me to brag about how many steps she's gotten in for the day or how great her last meal was! My Dad is participating in art classes - he is a fantastic artist, but I haven't seen him draw in ages. Now he's painting and drawing. I am so grateful to the staff at Selleck's Woods, I don't think they've ever said no to anything we've asked for! Everyone is so helpful. I can't thank them enough. If you're on the fence about moving into Senior Living/Assisted Living, please, take the tour of The Residence at Selleck's Woods. You will be impressed.

I visited this facility We went to The Residence at Selleck's Woods. Talk about magnificent. It's unreal. I can't say enough about how wonderful they were. It is the lap of luxury, and I saw filet mignon on the menu. The day we went there the vice president was there, and he gave us the tour. The setting was magnificent and the place was absolutely gorgeous. I loved it. If I had to go somewhere, that's where I want to go. The rooms were very beautifully decorated, and it's a brand-new community. Most of the residents were out on a field trip at the time we were there so we didn't see many activities, but there were some people doing a puzzle. The atmosphere was absolutely magnificent and top of the line. The place itself and the setting were beautiful, and it was a calming place because it's in the woods. The whole place was very serene, and there were beautiful paintings all around.

It’s taken me a while to write this but I need to share my experience with the staff or more accurately Family at Sellecks woods. I was in a real crunch when I first visited Selleck’s Woods. It was pouring rain and I was on a major touring mission with my friend susan Callahan when we got to our 3rd facility: Selleck’s Woods. I canceled the rest of the stops because I knew I had found my mom a new home. Unfortunately my beautiful mom didn’t get to enjoy the years we thought she would but she did get a chance to participate in a variety of activities and happy hours and movie nights before she declined. The staff was warm and kind and helpful. They were there for me and my mom day and night. I don’t know what I would have done without the love and care they gave to my mom and my whole family. These wonderful professionals are a soothing shelter in an otherwise cold and uncaring health system that wants to sweep the challenges of the elderly both mentally and physically under the carpet. I will always think of everyone at The Residence At Selleck’s Woods from the wonderful director Barbara to the awesome nursing staff especially Mary, Jericha and Sandra to Duke and Lynne in the front and the entire team as my family. Thank You all...Liz Fuller

My mother, Rita McKenna, moved in to Selleck Woods in Darien, CT over the summer. The facility is new and gorgeous. Barbara Davis and her staff were first class in helping us through the process. It was our first time and she was wonderful, educational, and patient throughout the process. My mother is well taken care of, very active with all the programs, and adjusting very well to life at Selleck Woods. Being a new facility, it is filling up nicely with all new people to the community. We visit often and everyone is very hospitable. We highly recommend Selleck Woods. Mary Stockdale

This place is a real gem. My mom is THRIVING and HAPPY at Selleck's Woods. The facility itself is beautiful, clean and secure. The warm and friendly staff goes above and beyond and treats every resident as if they are family. The food is delicious and the list of activities is mind-blowing. I couldn't be more thrilled this is where mom moved and I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a place for a loved one.

From the very first, , we were favorably impressed with both the Selleck's Woods facility as well as the staff. The facility is new, very well constructed and beautifully appointed. The staff is welcoming, friendly and very professional. Our move-in went well with our positive first impressions reinforced by our early experiences. We have been very pleased with our decision to join the Selleck's Woods community.

Kate The Residence at Selleck's Woods
Moving my mom to CT from FL was stressful enough, but when we arrived, my mom was greeted at the door and the staff made her feel right at home. Since then, my mom has made lots of friends including the staff. She loves that she can eat at any time of the day an NO assigned seating! The place itself is like a hotel. New, bright, comfortable, but it's the people that work there that really make it the wonderful place it is. I highly recommend Residence at Sellecks Woods!

Norma The Residence at Selleck's Woods
My 100 year old father recently moved into The Residence at Selleck's Woods and I couldn't be happier with the move. The staff are all very warm and welcoming, always making time to chat with him and with us as family members. The other residents have been equally warm and welcoming to him. The residence is lovely. His apartment is roomy, bright and perfect for his needs. The food is excellent as well. I feel very secure that his safety and physical needs are being well assessed and taken care of. As an elderly, long term widower who has lived alone and independently for many years we were concerned about how he would react to assisted living in a senior facility, but he seems very happy at Selleck's Woods and interacts enjoyably with staff and other residents daily. This is truly a wonderful senior residence.

Paula The Residence at Selleck's Woods
My mom was one of the first residents to move into the beautiful facility in April 2019. Our family is thrilled that she is living is such a wonderful place. Not only does she have a big, bright, new apartment with huge windows, she is so well attended every day. The staff is caring and friendly and she is always made to feel welcome. The other residents are also welcoming and not cliquey. There is always someone to sit with and have a chat. I love that Barbara, the director, organizes parties that include both the residents and the staff and their families. It's great peace of mind to have nurses on hand, great cooks, and support staff who always greet my mom (and us) with a smile. And the activities director, Deb, thinks of a nice variety of fun things to do.

I have worked at The Residence at Selleck’s Woods in Darien for 7 months. I am a Full Time Receptionist/Administrative Assistant. I truly love working with this team! I am the first person you meet when you walk thru the door. I enjoy greeting and welcoming everyone into our community. My interaction with our residents brings me so much joy. I sincerely love each of them. They are my family. We laugh and chat about what is going on in our lives. I enjoy listening to them sharing their life experiences, learning about their children, grandchildren and extended family. I am grateful and blessed to work with a wonderful team and most importantly spend my day with the residents in their home!

Mary The Residence at Selleck's Woods
My dad moved into Sellecks Woods in March of 2019. He was greeted by both staff and other residents with open and welcoming arms. My father, at 89 years young has thrived in this new environment. As best stated by the television show Cheers, "Sometimes it's nice to go where everyone knows your name, and they're always glad you came'. Sellecks Woods has provided the "extra' that my collaborative family could not provide. Dad is now surrounded by his contemporaries, has a beyond delicious menu to choose from and his own apartment to relax in when he so chooses.

Katrina The Residence at Selleck's Woods
We are so glad we chose Selleck's Woods for our parents! The residence is beautiful, clean, and peaceful. The food is outstanding - healthy, varied and consistently delicious. There are so many excellent services onsite including primary care, dental care, podiatry, PT, OT and a salon. The resident engagement team always has interesting events happening both at Selleck's Woods and also excursions off site. Most of all the staff make Selleck's Woods a warm, safe, stimulating and fun place to live. Our parents have not been this happy and stress-free in several years (and neither have we!).

Ashley The Residence at Selleck's Woods
I visited this facility The Residence at Selleck's Woods looks like it's going to be really nice. It has all new amenities and new a building overall. The facilities looked very promising, and right now, they're not taking people who require a lot of care. They want to get a full group of people who are pretty independent at this point and who can grow old together. So I think it would be a great community for somebody who is really, truly independent. The rooms seem really nice and beautiful, but the kitchens are small. The lady who gave us the tour was great. I felt she wasn't overly selling us and that she had the best interest of my grandfather at heart. They have a couple of activities, and they're working on getting more as they get more people living there. They have an exercise room, a hair salon, a gameroom, a billiards table, a nice garden outside, a full kitchen if you want to cook a big meal, and they have a movie theater.

Gail The Residence at Selleck's Woods
Beyond the obviously beautiful, new facility is an excellent, caring group of staff and nursing professionals. They have worked tirelessly to make my father's transition from a memory care facility on Cape Cod as easy as possible. Always cheerful and helpful, but most importantly kind, in all their interactions with us. They have really gotten to know him and make him feel welcome and appreciated. Soon my mother will join him but in the assisted living wing and we couldn't be more excited for them to be expertly taken care of given their different health needs. As an added bonus, the food is delicious!

Chris The Residence at Selleck's Woods
The Residences at Selleck’s Woods is not only a beautiful home to my mother, but the staff has been outstanding. They made her move extremely easy, they have treated her with kindness and respect and have made living there enjoyable for her. Importantly, when my mother needed surgery, the staff went above and beyond to support her during the pre-op, post-op and rehabilitation stages, which made a difficult and stressful time a great deal easier for all of us. This place is top notch and they make you feel like you are a part of their own family.
