The Terrace at Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia, PA
5.0

I was looking for a place that could help with my loved one's care needs, and I think he is getting good care here. I like the building itself, and the location is wonderful. He enjoys the outdoors and nature, and the facility provides that very well for him. It's clean. I like the fact that I'm able to have conversations with the staff, and they provide me with good answers. The staff are very responsive, respectful, and genuinely helpful. They go out of their way to help whenever they can. I think that they're paying attention to my loved one and his needs, and they do a good job. Whoever is in the kitchen is doing a good job with the food as well, and my loved one is lucky to have that provided to him. It's certainly a worthwhile place to take a look at.

My father is doing pretty well here at this retirement community. We are satisfied with all they have done for us. We did have some minor issues at first, but they have since corrected the issues. They do a very good job with the cleaning, everything looks spotless. The staff isn't bad, they have been very helpful. There are many activities offered. Everything is working out well and I would recommend it.
