Customer Reviews

Nice place, good care and average food

Our mom is fairly new there. They were very helpful during the initial induction process. She was initially there for respite care and then it became long term. It was nice that they accepted mom since she is 97 and wheelchair bound. The facility is clean and well maintained. The staff has always been very friendly and accommodating. The place is not inexpensive but it appears to be on a par with other facilities in the area that can cover a variety of the resident's needs. They are taking good care of her health although now some of the long term care has been handed off to a hospice program. They appear to have numerous activities but mom does not participate in many of them. The downside is the food. We know they must cater to a number a dietary needs but it would be nice if they could cater to the individual a little more. The major complaint from mom is that most meat items are cook beyond the point of being edible. Meats tend to be hard to cut and chew. Other than the food, mom is happy with her stay and her apartment. The family is pleased.

Love this place!

My mother has lived at Hamilton Place for 4 years and I have peace of mind that she is well cared for. The staff is top notch here and morale is the best I have seen. Because the facility is small, the employees get to know the residents and their families well. This place is a gem!

Nancy - we certainly pride ourselves on our friendly staff and right-knit communities. Thanks for entrusting us with your mom's care, we are lucky to have her with us!

Mom is doing great!

Mom is settling in very well! It was difficult for her to leave her home of 55 years; however, now that she has been at Hamilton Place for 3 months, she realizes it was time. She comments all the time that she is comfortable and that everyone is so nice. She enjoys bingo and some of the card games. It is a great comfort to know that mom is well taken care of and safe every day! Thank you Hamilton Place!

Valerie - thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We're thrilled your mom is settling in and enjoying herself, and we know she will continue to thrive!

Just like home!

I am happy that our family decided to put our loved one here. The care is exceptional I can tell that the staff are here because they care and I like that it’s the same staff all the time. I loved listening to the music while visiting it was always a happy time and seeing the smiles on the residents faces. The DON offered her help when my loved one was declining and I will always be forever grateful for that. My loved one has passed now but I will always cherish the time I had and how Hamilton Place made us feel when we were there.

Moms forever home !

My mom has been here a couple years I love that the staff is consistent and is friendly. It’s great for her because she has built so many friendships here. When I walk in every calls me by my name and smiles and it makes you feel so welcomed! I like the individual care she receives and staff take the time to talk to everyone. I have had meetings with management and they are always accommodating if I have a question. I highly recommend it!

Easy move, smooth adjustment

The move to Hamilton Place was very easy. We moved mom on a very wintry Saturday. Everyone at Hamilton Place helped with the move and made mom feel very welcome. She has adjusted very well and keeps telling me how friendly and caring everyone is. This is a smaller community and just right for mom. She calls it home and I couldn't be happier that she is happy.

Really liked the facility and the home feel when you walk in. Nice size for my mom's needs. Love that it is only one floor. Still on my list; however, mom will only consider a one bedroom apartment at this time.

Go anywhere but here

I would not recommend this establishment unless your loved one truly needs to be on the highest level of services--and doesn't need nursing services. Personnel with try to itimidate your loved one into signing for more (unneeded) services, and give statements to Dr that were proven to be false. It took getting regional management involved to get things straightened out....and then hold them to that. Even with a written agreement, the individual tried to do the same thing and had to be reminded what the agreement stated. DOCUMENT all meetings and notes you send. Agree to nothing over the phone and don't let them rush you through meetings. It doesn't matter what they tell you if the paperwork doesn't match.

Additionally, watch your bill VERY VERY closely. We had trouble for 3 months to get a straight bill and in the end, instead of us owning them $$$$ they owed us a refund!!

Be aware there are NO nursing services overnight and if there is an issue, a CNA may argue with you about calling an EMS-even when there are injuries that required surgery.

The day to day staff were pleasant and caring. They were the bright spot of this establishment. The director did try to remedy the situation, but wasnot able to ensure that the bullying individual did not continue acting unprofessionally.

As a private pay establishment, I did not expect to have to fight to ensure my loved one was not safe physically and emotionally.

Great Building

As I toured Hamilton Place for my dad I was greeted by every staff member I came across. Hamilton is clear, free of clutter and I was able to see several people interacting in activities. Best place I have toured so far!!!!

So Happy we made the move

I am so pleased with Hamilton Place and the wonderful staff. They take great care of my mother and I have seen a complete different side to her since she moved there. In the past she mainly kept to herself and now she is always going on outings and has made some amazing new friends. She is so happy and I wish we had moved her there sooner.

This place is truly a great place. I have had no complaints moved my mother in a couple months ago the staff is great. Management helps out and has always been very respectful when I have called. I like the small atmosphere and that there is an outside courtyard.

RUN AWAY- not as it seems

BEWARE- they do not have nursing 3rd shift

Once we put our loved one in this facility, they began badgering her to let them provide more services. Even when our MD stated what should happen and after they were told to address their questions to the POA , they again went and started badgering her within 20 min of our leaving the building.

Our loved one had a fall in their facility which required surgery and within a day of returning, the badgering (or harassment) began.

We have witnessed wait times of over 40 min for assistance to come to the room.

It may look pretty but not to be trusted.

Bad Location For Me, But Pleasant Tour Of This Community

This is nice community, and I had lovely tour of it. The staff was kind, and helpful. My tour guide was informative, and my questions were answered. The community looked very well-kept. Unfortunately the location was not convenient for my families to travel too, but my tour went well.

A Nice Community With Respectful Staff

What came down to our final choice is the pricing. While they were not the best fit for his lifestyle they were still a nice community. Everybody was respectful, courteous, understood ours needs n they were seeing if he was fit too.


The staff have been great at helping dad to get adjusted to living here. The food is ok and they do offer healthy options. He has started to participate in some of the daily activities. The community is clean and the grounds are well maintained. I would recommend this community.

Lingering Odor

I had a decent tour of this community, but I knew it was not the facility for my love one. I did notice a bad odor lingering around the community. From what I saw I feel the community could use some updating. My tour guide was friendly. The experience was okay, but I did find another community that suited our needs better.

Good Tour Overall

I had a good tour of this community. Everything went well for the most part. From what I was shown the community looked nice, everything appeared to well maintain. The staff I came across was kind, and friendly. The experience was a nice one. This wasn't the community for us, but my tour went well.

Hamilton Place Home

Hamilton Place is a small, secure facility. It is visually appealing, clean, and comfortable. It is in no way similar to a nursing home. The residents have their own nice room. Even the studio rooms have plenty of room for a bed, and love seat and chair or rocker. We divided the room so it appears to have a bedroom and living area, as well as a huge bathroom and small kitchen area. The layout of the facility is great, being a rectangle with the inside area of the rectangle being a large outdoor courtyard which residents can go in and out without actually being able to go off-premise. The courtyard has trees, plants, a covered porch and an open porch, all areas with seating. The dining room is set up like a restaurant...and family can eat with their resident...the food is good, not just adequate. The staff is friendly and competent. For my family member, I would like to see more physical activities rather than games as cards and bingo are very difficult for mild dementia patients. They do have scenic drives and exercise activities which are nice. All in all, I think it's a very nice place, and my family member resident has come to the decision that it is a "nice place to be".

Outstanding care for dad

I like this community for the care of my father. He does like the staff and they are attentive. The meals could use some improvements in the meals. They do offer him activities. He does not like that they have the happy hour a few times a week. The value is outstanding and it has a home effect here. I like that the community is close to my home to be close to my father. I recommend this community for the good care and value that is offered here.

Care for my mom

This is great community with good staff who are always attentive to my mom's needs. The community is very clean and taken care of. My mom is happy with the meals and the variety. She is offered activities , but not participating often. We like the value and the care here and would recommend other activities to this community.

Mom Is Very Happy Here

Everything has worked out very well for my mother here at this community. She has adjusted well to it, and she is happy here. We are very pleased with our choice to move her here. It is a lovely community, they do a very good job with keeping the community well maintained. They have a really nice staff, they have been very helpful and welcoming. The location is close to me, just in care anything happens. It is a really nice place, and I would highly recommend it.

Working With Community

The care is good for my mom. It seems to be a fairly well community. I think the staff could use improvement on returning calls and resolve financial problems. Otherwise, the facility is nice and clean, no problems in that area. I only hope for improvements.

Smaller Yet Better

I have no concerns of being kept clean at this community. The staff are friendly, welcoming and don't make me feel like at stranger. I like the feeling of being at home, being that it is smaller the staff are able to provide the personal attention to residents. The food is always fresh and good. My mom is participating in exercise class, plays cards, reading club and is truly enjoying herself. I would recommend this community for its smaller space and personal attention to needs.

Pleasant visit, helpful staff, leadership is great!! Cleanliness is good; patients take care of their space, may need a little tending to. Overall, I would recommend Hamilton Place. Thank you Tammy for all of your assistance!

Nice Place

Very friendly staff and the facility is extremely clean. Concerns arise with care services. Several appointments with the doctor or meetings with a nurse have been canceled with no notice.

Facility is very clean. Staff is very friendly. Not satisfied with level of communication. We were told doctor is readiliy available and returns calls quickly, have yet to have loved one seen by in house doctor. Had an incident where loved one was taken to hospital and have had no contact from facility AT ALL! Shouldn't there be some concern for the resident's well being and time frame of return?

Bed And Breakfast Community

My mother is still taking some time to adjust with the move into the community and the staff has been very helpful with helping her settle in. The community is clean and nice, very well kept. The staff is very helpful and very available when you need them. There are good activities here for the residents, and the food is okay. My mother says it could a better dining experience. It is a smaller community, so she gets more individual attention and it is more of a bed and breakfast atmosphere than a facility for older people. I have already told all my friends about this community and would recommend it to anyone to take a look at it.

Homestyle Atmosphere

We are very happy to have our mom in a smaller environment where she gets more attention than in a large institution. The style of Hamilton Place is more like a nice bed & breakfast atmosphere. With my mom's disabilities and the loss of my dad soon after the move, she is getting the personal care that has been very much needed.

Toured, very nice looking place

I toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. The facility was well kept and clean, and all of the staff I met seemed friendly and professional. We ended up selecting another community, but this is somewhere I would have considered as an option for my loved one.

Attentive staff

The rooms are a little small, but Hamilton Place is a great place. It is nice furnished and decorated and it is always clean and well maintained. The staff is very attentive and accommodating to the residents needs.

Overall very pleased with them

I am really pleased with them. The attention that they have given to my Mom is great. They have great communication and are very pleasant and helpful. Overall very pleased with them.

Review of Hamilton Place - Fort Wayne, IN

We were looking for a new place for my mother-in-law. We stopped several times to see Hamilton Place. We were very impressed with the staff everytime. Def is knowledgable and the nurses are very friendly and attentive to the residents. I would consider Hamilton Place for myself when that time comes, I was that impressed.

Received literature, spoke to representative who was very friendly, helpful. Visited there and all of us thought it was just too small, rooms too small, not a good fit. Very clean and nice staff though.

Everyone is super nice and they make your loved one feel at home.

Great Place

Moved Mother in a week ago. She is finding Hamilton Place a comfortable, friendly and safe environment. She feels well cared for and happy that she decided to move in.
Thanks to all the staff for making Hamilton Place a loving environment.

Review of Hamilton Place - Fort Wayne, IN

The staff we met were very warm and welcoming. It made it an easy choice for me and my mother. She moved in within a week of our first tour.

Every member of the staff, starting w...

Every member of the staff, starting with the Director of Marketing was very helpful to us. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome, including our special needs sons. My mom is having increasing problems with confusion and the staff have been very helpful to her in explaining things. They are friendly and they also do an excellent job of giving the care that the residents need. It is very much like a family atmosphere.
