A CEO's Perspective

THE LCB PHILOSOPHY

Michael Stoller, CEO, discusses what makes LCB Senior Living unique and what inspires and motivates him every day.

You Are Welcome Here

The LCB family is an inclusive one, welcoming people from all backgrounds, ethnicities and orientations. Our workplace and communities
are enriched by diversity, and all of the things that make you distinctly you!

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 & security and more, there are many less tangible but highly valuable aspects as well.

 

Great Assisted Living Care is Our Hallmark!

We specialize in providing expert Assisted Living services. From support with activities of daily living (ADL) such as walking escorts, bathing, dressing or toileting, to more extensive needs, we tailor care to each individual to make life easier and more fulfilling.

  • Personalized care plans to meet daily needs
  • Medication management and administration
  • Injections and crushed medications
  • Oxygen assistance
  • Support and coordination of advanced care needs (with third parties)
  • All associates certified by the National Institute for Dementia Education (NIDE)
  • A continuum of care to meet evolving needs
  • And more!

Our experience with Suffield by the River has been excellent. On our first visit with my mom, Valerie and the entire staff made us feel so welcome. We visited other senior communities and they did not have the same welcoming feel. This is where we moved my mom in March and she has been very happy there. Throughout the process, Valerie was attentive and accommodating. We highly recommend Suffield by the River for a senior living community.

I have the privilege of providing musical entertainment at many fine retirement communities. It is a special joy to come to Suffield By The River to perform on keyboard along with great vocalists such as Ethel Lee, Peter Annone or Joe Saimeri. Driving in and enjoying the beautifully manicured grounds, great Connecticut River views, and spotless, inviting facilities makes this a joy. What I sense the most is a very happy, motivated group of staff and residents that are really enjoying life to its’ fullest. Everyone makes us feel welcome and part of the family. My interaction with Donna and Nancy is always fantastic. Thank you for continuing to include us in your programs. Congratulations SBRT for a job well done!

Suffield by the River has been such a wonderful community for my family member - there are enriching activities, wonderful food, genuinely caring and friendly staff! Everyone knows who my family member is, keep us updated on what's happening, and are always finding ways to keep him engaged, well, and included. They have worked so closely with us to maximize his quality of life in the face of Alzheimer's, and he's doing better there than he had in years. Thank you!

I think they have had a few infrastructure and staffing issues in the past year but because of the communications and their efforts to resolve issues I still give them a top rating. It's a nice family of friends there all with similar circumstances that brought them to Suffield by the River. Plenty to do if you choose, but my mom takes part in allot. She loves morning exercise and has been a big winner at the Bingo games. She also likes doing flower arrangements and was just recently performing with the choir group. All in all the best place for my mom.

Suffield by the River is truly a special place. I have never been to an assisted living facility where the staff make you feel like family. My uncle cannot stop talking about the attention he receives from everyone. For a man who used to isolate, my uncle socializes more than he ever has. Suffield by the River has been amazing for our family.

The absolute best assisted living facility in Northern Connecticut. The residents get excellent care, the meals are top notch offering meals from 7am-7pm, and the staff get 10 stars. My husband and I are thrilled to have decided to choose them to care for his father. You can't get any better than Suffield by the River! Our dad transitioned from the assisted living side of Suffield by the River to their memory care unit, Reflections, about a year ago. [name removed], the Director of Reflections, is PHENOMENAL!!! She is compassionate...she knows her residents. She puts 100% ± into her role. Our dad constantly loses his glasses. She goes out of her way to look and find his glasses. She ALWAYS finds them. When dad needs supplies, she contacts us so we know to buy stuff for dad. She is the best. She is a caring professional who keeps the resident's loved ones informed and demonstrates that she genuinely cares about her residents. She is truly an asset to Reflections & Suffield.

We were saddened when our family member was diagnosed with dementia and needed more specialized care than we could give her at home. The staff at Suffield by the River and Reflections memory care made the transition much easier for us. From the friendly front desk staff to the skilled health care staff we have been very happy with the care and attention she has received. Their administrators are always available to answer questions and respond quickly. The food is excellent and all activities are geared to help those who need memory care. We can rest easy knowing she is getting the best care.

Peter Suffield by the River
My father has spent the last 4 months in the memory care unit, Reflections, at Suffield by the River and I couldn't be happier with the care he has received. He has advanced dementia and was quite difficult, but I was always amazed by how effectively the staff redirected and distracted him when he would act out. He was unhappy when he first arrived, but once he settled in, it was clear he was happy here. He would follow the staff around and want to socialize with them and keep them from working. They would just smile and interact with him, and eventually try to lead him back to group activities, often unsuccessfully. I was told many times, by many different staff members, how much they loved my dad. It gave me considerable peace knowing he was cared for by people who truly cared for him. I can't recommend Suffield by the River Reflections unit more strongly.

Our family has just begun a search for independent living for our parents. One of the most impressive things I noted while visiting this community was the number of attentive staff and people who went out of their way to make sure my family felt special while they were there. We met several people who worked at the community from the receptionist to the nurses and people who worked with activities and each one of them took the time to introduce themselves and talk to us about what role they would play in helping my parents feel welcome.

My dad passed away a year ago and my mom could not live alone in Florida so we were fortunate to find an apartment for her at Suffield by the River. She is safe there and her apartment is comfortable with everything she needs. My mom takes advantage of many of the activities and especially likes the exercise classes and is doing great. Special thanks to the caring staff there and Valerie for really making things work for us when we moved mom from Florida.

Our team is filled with individuals who genuinely care about the well-being of our residents. The level of empathy and compassion displayed by our associates is heartwarming.

We really like how Suffield by the River has different levels of care in the same complex - there is independent living, assisted living, memory care and there is even a nursing home right next door that we believe they have some affiliation with. The location is very ideal for our family and we also like that it is not huge, it is a smaller facility that does not get overwhelming. There are plenty of sufficient activities for the residents there - our loved one seems happy with them. The meals started off really good and then there was a turnover in their staff so the meals dropped off and were disconnected, but they are recovering now so the meals are better.
