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.

Senior management has worked with me and my family to accommodate my Mom’s needs every step of the way. The nurses are always attentive and staff is super friendly and helpful. The meals are great. There are lots of fun activities including the singing and piano music which is fantastic. The residents are always so welcoming and happy.

5 Star Rating is what I am giving Tradition’s of Dedham. My mom at the age of 97 was no longer able to stay alone in her home after a fall that landed her in the hospital and rehabilitation facility. I looked at several Assisted Living Facilities around the Norwood/Dedham area. As soon as my brother and I drove into the facility we both had a positive feeling with the buildings beauty along with its landscape & USA flag flying free🇺🇸. My mom has a beautiful and safe 2 room apartment that she says” it’s just like my home”. I cannot emphasize what a wonderful, caring, honest safe place for my mom to be living at this stage of her life. We are forever grateful to all of the management staff at Traditions for their professionalism, kindness, and positive ways with assisting myself, my 7 siblings and most of all our mom to adjust to her new home. Mom’s daily caregivers are kind, knowledgeable and educated in elder care. It is amazing to see mom cared for with respect and kindness. I praise those involved in moms daily care 24/7. From the front desk secretary,(all secretaries) the maintenance dept, housekeeping, Activity Dept, Management, Nursing Dept and the top quality Food Service are are superb especially during these difficult times of Covid. Also they have the Best Occupational Therapist from outside agency Carrie…she is remarkable and they also have Physical Therapist. They know my mom and always find the time to accommodate her needs or wishes! It is a very difficult time for mom to leave her home as well as a very emotional time for her and her family.it has been a year now that mom is at Tradition’s and I praise all those involved in our moms care..hence the 5 Star rating….Thank you is not enough..Carolyn Vanasse Murphy

Traditions of Dedham is a very warm and friendly environment. The minute you walk into the fantastic lobby you are greeted with people who really enjoy their job. The staff there are very dedicated to their jobs and from experience enjoy working with the elderly. The accomodations are exceptional. Every day there is a list of activities for all the residents. I am very impressed with their attention to detail in everything they do. My family and I was recently invited to their Christmas Open House and what a presentation they did for the event . There was the excellent food they presented from their in house chef and the entertainment was phenomenal. My family is very happy that we choose Traditions for my mother as she could no longer live by herself. Please keep up the great work you are doing for your residents. I know it is the hard at times to accommodate the elderly and you have to have a unique quality to accommodate their needs at very unique time in their life, you accomplish that very nicely. Please keep up the great work. We very much appreciate it. Shout out to the executive staff and the aides who are a credit to their profession.

Everything about Traditions of Dedham far exceeded our expectations. The staff is incredible - they are talented, friendly, and went out of their way to be helpful in so many ways. The activities they offer the residence is outstanding, and they included all kinds of interest that people might have. Not only did they keep give the residence opportunities to enjoy being with other residents, but they offered numerous and varied activities every day. The staff that manages the activities encouraged everyone to participate and made it so enjoyable. We were amazed at the quality of the food and it’s presentation and variety. Dining there is truly dining, and it was as good as any restaurant quality. All of the staff there was truly outstanding. I know I’m using a lot of positive adjectives but that’s the way I feel about Traditions I hope when I need to have assisted living, there will be room there for me because I would love to spend time there. Thank you for making my husband’s time they’re so good. Trish, Melanie, Bill, Gary, John, and John, Ashleigh, Ashley and everyone else THANK YOU. Dedee Bowers

Overall, from all reports it seems to be going very well. She seems happy, healthy and safe. She feels the care is good. My dad had some confusion about the medical care- but that could be him misunderstanding some things. The facility is very nice and we are happy so far. I am neither the health care proxy nor the POA- so my communication with staff is limited.

Russ Traditions of Dedham
Traditions of Dedham is truly a very special place to work. As a new associate, the staff immediately made me feel welcomed. They never hesitated to answer my questions and show me the ropes in order to acclimate me in my new roles in activities and the dining room. Interacting with the residents brings me joy each and every day. They are consistently eager to participate in our programming whether it's a lecture, an exercise class, or a guided mediation. In such a short period of time, I've learned so much about their life experiences and look forward to learning more through their stories about family, world travels, hobbies, and interests. I consider myself blessed to be part of such a wonderful and caring community.

John Traditions of Dedham
My dad has been a resident at Traditions since early July, at the age of 85 and after 15 years of stubbornly independent living in a cramped, dirty, and lonely old apartment. After I took his car keys away from him in November 2022, I found myself spending a lot of time trying to keep Dad fed. Meals On Wheels helped with that a little bit, but it was still burdensome, and he had had a couple of falls at his apartment as well. That’s when I got serious about finding his next & forever home. I finally had no choice after he had another fall in June - his 4th fall in about a year. This time, he fractured his neck and was in the hospital & then rehab for about three weeks. Perfect opportunity to get his next residence secured, as I really needed to place him where he would be safe, well-fed, and looked-after. I knew Traditions was where I wanted him to be as soon as I toured it in November 2022. The burden of the day-to-day care for Dad has greatly reduced for me. The staff at Traditions helped him quite a bit while he was still recovering from his neck injury, while at the same time trying to acclimate to his new residence. They helped him with showering & dressing, making his bed, reminding him about meals and prescriptions – what a relief to have such a caring & supportive team looking after Dad. He’s eating three squares every day and putting back on some weight that he’s lost in the past couple of years. He’s working with a physical therapist as needed, and overall, his mood and his health seems to be improving. In due time, he’ll have a “routine” and will have certain friends that he’ll have meals with or go to activities with. But in the meantime, he’s healthy, he’s safe, he’s being cared-for and looked-after, and that’s worth every penny! His one-bedroom apartment is clean, bright, spacious, and well-maintained. Can’t say enough good things about Traditions – the facility, the staff, the management, and the food are all excellent.

My name is Steve King, and I am a performer, a pianist. My experience at traditions has been positive in every way. I judge each of the many venues I perform at after speaking with their residents. Traditions provides a healthy, balanced, clean, safe environment for its residents. I recommend it highly.

I am an entertainer, and I specialize in the senior community. I have 70 different places where I perform, and I've been going to Traditions of Dedham for years. While I can't vouch for resident apartments, I can tell you that the building is lovely. The activities department is fantastic and obviously cares deeply for the residents. I don't know what kind of metric other people use, but I think employee retention is a huge thing. I have been working with the same employees of the activity department for the entire time I've sung there. Over 7 years. They know every resident and clearly have personal relationships with them. To me, that speaks volumes.

As a hospice nurse I am in and out of many buildings, Traditions is truly one of a kind. I can’t say enough positive things. The nursing staff are caring and competent. The direct care staff to above and beyond. I see all the small things that are the actual big things. All the residents are so loved and I truly admire the way the staff learns each individual and go out of their way to do special things for them. The residents always look happy and there’s always something fun for them to do. The staff really promote respect and dignity. Truly there’s no better place to retire.

My good friend has been living at Traditions of Dedham for the past 4 months and she is enjoying it immensely. The first meeting we had was with Melanie Fernandes, who guided us through the entire process with great knowledge and kindness. Always available for questions and support, she went what I consider above and beyond to make the transition go smoothly. My friend is now enjoying wonderful meals, along with the many activities offered and making new friends. Traditions has given our friend a new lease on life. Thank you , Melanie and Traditions!

Chicky Traditions of Dedham
From the first day that we visited Traditions of Dedham my friends and I felt very comfortable. There was a very welcoming feeling to the place. [name removed] met with the friends and explained every detail of the services that Traditions would provide. She never hesitated to answer our many questions and even anticipated some of the things we should know. We were given a complete tour of the facilities and met many members of the staff who would be helping our friend. Since moving into Traditions our friend has adjusted beautifully to her new apartment. She is enjoying meals in the dining room and has met new friends there. One of the biggest benefits is the opportunity for her to socialize with other residents and participate in the many activities offered. Traditions and its staff have offered her a new outlook on her everyday living. Once again, kudos to the entire staff but especially [name removed] who has gone out of her way to make sure our friend is adjusting well.

Margaret Traditions of Dedham
As a nurse I know how hard it is to age in the community. I see patients and families struggle to keep their loved ones safe, independent and happy as they navigate the process of getting older. Traditions is truly a god send! Initially my grandmother was upset to leave her apartment, but that didn’t last long. She loves all the activities and sense of community at traditions. She is so happy there, I feel like i have to drag her out of the place to spend time with me! The staff are so friendly and nice, the apartment is adorable and the facility is clean and well-kept. We are all very happy Traditions exists.

Carol Traditions of Dedham
My mother was living independently in her own apartment, but she wasn’t thriving. We urged her to move to Traditions, but she gave us a lot of pushback. Then, she took a fall in her apartment, and we made the decision to move her while she was still in the hospital. When she first got there, she was angry, but after a few months, she thanked us. Now, every time we call her she is so happy. We don’t have to worry that she isn’t taking her medicine; we don’t have to worry that she’s lonely; we don’t have to worry about her watching TV all day. She’s made many new friends and she participates in all the activities. It’s really been a relief for our family to see her so happy and we would recommend Traditions to anyone.

I have been volunteering at Traditions for several months now and wish my own mother could have been at this wonderful facility. The premises are always clean, the staff are all so friendly and there are so many activities and outings. You can tell the staff really cares about the residents and the residents themselves have told me how happy they are.

Jud Traditions of Dedham
My mom is currently a resident of Traditions - has been for about a year now, and she is absolutely thriving there. I can’t say enough positive about this place. She has a lovely, private room. The nursing staff is attentive, thorough and friendly. The food is delicious and served in a large dining room with lots of windows. There is a pub where “happy hour” is served a couple days/week that she loves going to. The front desk is well staffed, friendly and responsive. The maintenance staff are helpful and timely. The activities director and his staff are incredible. Every day a sheet of paper is delivered to my mom with that day’s activities. She goes to exercise class every morning. On a recent visit I heard a live guitarist/piano player perform Irish and other music in keeping with the upcoming St. Paddy’s Day. Live music is a common occurrence at Traditions. They also have trivia, art classes, sing-a-longs, and bus trips — to see a movie, attend a show, visit a museum, or to just go to the grocery store. All of these activities keep my mom interested & engaged. She is having more fun than we could have imagined at this time in her life. Thanks to the staff & management of Traditions for creating such a well managed, healthy & fun environment where we can feel confident that our mom is safe and well cared for - much appreciated!

My mom sat by herself in her apartment for years. We dragged her kicking and screaming to Traditions. Now she has lots of friends, participates in so many fun activities. It’s literally like living on a cruise ship. There is a dining room always open and the food is really good. The staff is so friendly and helpful. There is a great atmosphere. My mom is so much happier now.

My best friend has only been living at Traditions of Dedham Assisted Living for a few months now but she has settled in and seems quite happy. Traditions is beautiful, bright, and a welcoming community. You feel as if you are at home as soon as you enter. She is in a safe, clean and caring environment with many opportunities for socializing. She loves the food and tells us everyone is so nice to her. She is making new friends. From the beginning of our search for a new home for our friend Melanie Fernandes has been right there guiding us along and helping us to understand the process and continues to help us to help our friend. All staff has been extremely helpful. A shoutout to John!!
