We felt very welcomed at the Wellington, from the reserved parking space to the departing thank-you gift. Chris was great as well as the Director and all the staff and residents we encountered. Lunch was wonderful. We will definitely be considering the Wellington for my Mom.

I had my two sons that came with me and they asked many questions. Eric was able to answer all questions and more. I feel that the Wellington would be a very good choice.

Very welcoming and warm experience with him and as we met and greeted several residents. I will bring my wife to have a meal in the dining room as invited by Kris.

My friend Judy and I were extremely appreciative of the time spent showing us the facility as well as the outrageously delicious brunch. We were so impressed with the Wellington. However because there is no memory care, considering a move to the Wellington does not work for us. Neither one of us currently has memory problems but should that develop down the line, we both feel it is necessary to have that level of care in place and available.

My caregiver and I were treated with a great deal of respect. We also met with the Nursing Director was both personable, professional and help. All of this was over a complimentary lunch. Additionally, the residents all seemed very friendly.

Karen was wonderful! We so enjoyed our tour with her. She is charming, warm and made us feel so welcome. We plan to return with my dad and hopefully the Wellington will be a good match for him. Thank you so much!

This community is somewhat beyond the means of the relative I was representing, but I was impressed enough to consider it for myself when the time comes.

Stacey was fantastic! Very personable and extremely knowledgeable. The Wellington is a remarkable property, unfortunately just not a fit for my parents. We believe they would do better with a smaller facility. Thank you for the opportunity to view your property.

Loved the reserved parking! Also, the room upgrades were beautiful.

The employees made me feel welcomed from the start; greeting me immediately with big smiles!! I was 30 minutes early for my appointment but Chris was able to meet with me when I arrived. He was very helpful in answering my questions and gave me a great tour. I can't forget to mention Lisa, who answered my emails in a timely manner and added a personal note to the brochure I received in the mail. The community is quite pleasant with beautiful grounds and friendly residents. I liked the floor plans but the master bedroom was shockingly small and would not fit my parents' bedroom furniture. The kitchens and bathrooms could be updated as well as the hallway lighting. Visitor parking was limited and covered parking was lacking for the residents. Even with it being a bit outdated, I'd recommend the community.

I can't say enough positive things about Chris. He is a huge asset to the Wellington. He is caring and knowledgeable. He understood how tough this is for my parents, and really put them at ease. As far as your property is nice and clean I would recommend updating to "modernize" for today's seniors. The new flooring and carpet is a major improvement in the apartments, and more modern appliances and touches throughout the community will really make a difference for those in their 70's making the transition. Overall our experience was positive & Chris was terrific!

I had three positive experiences in visiting the Wellington. The first two visits I had outstanding device from Lisa Doud. The third visit was hosted by Chris Erickson and also the new director, Sam Faye. All provided extremely attentive and courteous service.
