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.
Thank you for the review!
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 be... read more
Thank you for the kind words and for sharing your experience at Traditions! We wholeheartedly appreciate the review.
Pros) it's not a lock down place. It's like she has her apt and she can come and go and people can visit. Food is great. Always company available. Hair salon on site. Encouraging socialization. Cons) I was under the impression that some basic med needs would be handled but I guess not. She has to take eye drops for an upcoming surgery and her friends told me the facility is unable to assist. I assumed she would at least be able to get a quick reminder for the few days she has to do the drops every 4 hours. I can somewhat und... read more
Thank you so much for your kind words, we really appreciate getting that kind of feedback. As far as the medication management goes, it seems there may have been a misunderstanding. Our community does offer the SAMM program and your aunt is fully eligible for medication, eye drop, and CPAP machine reminders whenever she needs them. We would advise you to contact the community immediately to assure that all of this is clear to your aunt and so we can provide the services she needs. We truly appreciate you being a part of Trad... read more
We chose this place because of the friendliness, reasonable cost, and it's nearby to where I live. My mother is starting out in independent living and she can stay in the same apartment if she needs assisted-living help in the future. Also, they invited her to have lunch with a current resident while we were looking so she could get a feel for it. They offer a wide variety of activities. They do offer housekeeping once a week and can do laundry for an extra fee. Everything seems very clean. Smaller facility where the staff s... read more
The staff has a good attitude. Compared to other places, the general, positive and accomodating attitute is pretty rare.
Thank you for your five-star review! We love what we do and we're thrilled that it shows!
We chose Traditions of Dedham for a 3 week respite stay for my mom. It was fabulous; although about half of the time she was there, they unfortunately had a Covid outbreak. They seemed to handle it all efficiently. They had all the residents tested, and quarantined those we needed to be isolated. It was an unfortunates experience, but thankfully my mom didn't get Covid. It changed the activities and the dining experience - it wasn't what it could have been during that time. Once things cleared up, she was then able to experi... read more
We greatly appreciate your feedback and your patience with the unfortunate circumstances surrounding your mother's stay. Thank you for your review and for entrusting us to care for her during her respite stay.
Our mother has lived at Traditions for the past 4 years. Initially in assisted living and now Memory care. The staff is amazing. They are all so kind and caring. They know our mother well and have also been a support to us in navigating her care. Attention to detail is where they excell. Mom always looks so nice. Her outfits are clean and even coordinated. They let us know if anything comes up or Mom needs anything at all. We truly can’t say enough good things about Traditions of Dedham.
Kate, thank you so much for your review. We appreciate your kind words and are so pleased to have your mom at Traditions!
My friend is quite contrary, she tends to irritate the aids which makes it difficult for her because she is very dependent on the assistance from them. She has not quite gotten the feel for it all since she has private aids and expects them all to act that way. Some are wonderful but I think some could be more sympathetic. The activities are wonderful, I have seen many of them going on. I have been to several of the religious services, painting classes, concerts, etc. The room sizes at Traditions are the largest out of all o... read more

We are always looking for ways to improve and cannot do so without reviews like yours. We hope that you both will continue to enjoy our daily activities and community as a whole.
Traditions of Dedham has a smaller more homey atmosphere and it has an older transitional look with a modern attitude. The room sizes are fabulous and very spacious. Overall the staff and the care she is getting and the diligence and response time has been awesome. I have nothing but good things to say about our experience and would definitely recommend them to others.
Thank you for your five-star review and for entrusting us with the care of your loved one!
