Review of The Devon Senior Living

My mother spent several months at The Devon before her passing. She had serious health issues and required constant attention. The staff provided top quality treatment and communicated with me regularly about her status. I visited frequently and interacted with other residents all of whom seemed happy and well adjusted. The Devon is a smaller, noninstitutional living facility that feels very "homey." It is a great alternative to some of the larger places in the area.

A Little Gem

I was very pleased with the care my mother received at The Devon. Her room was cozy, spacious and cleaned daily. The entire staff made it their job to get to know her and communicated with me on a regular basis. Everyone was so kind and attentive, I felt comfortable that she was in good hands.
I visited frequently observing and interacting with other residents, all requiring different levels of care. The personal attention paid to my mother was not an isolated occurrence. They all seemed happy, healthy and well adjusted.
The Devon is a small facility in a beautiful stone, historic building and does not feel like an institution. It actually feels like "home".
Many activities are offered throughout the day that keep the residents stimulated and engaged.
I would highly recommend The Devon if you are looking for a smaller, non institutional assisted living facility for yourself or your loved one. It is a great alternative to some of the larger step-down communities in the area.

It was definitely not a place of choice. everything looked old and dirty. Urine smell everywhere. The staff looked very sparse and not engaged.

Please contact me at the community if we can be of further assistance as you look at senior living options.

Good place for the right time

I am very pleased with Devon Senior Living and their memory care unit. They take excellent care of my mother. I agree that sometimes it does smell especially on the weekends. And also there are many stages of dementia and when I first toured locked down dementia units I found them very depressing with people just sitting around doing very little. This was because at the time my mother wasn't ready for those units. Sadly my mother's condition has progressed their memory center is appropriate for her at this time. She did well in the main area for a long time.


Despicable!! Do not send anyone here!! The memory care unit is a DISGRACE. Filthy, no care plan, not enough supervision.

We read the one star reviews and ignored them! LOOK BEYOND THE CLOSED DOORS!!!

All of the responses to the low ratings are the same from DSL. It is an insult for the administration to respond to the low reviews. ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS!!!!!

Look at many other websites for the low reviews.


The memory care unit is awful!!! Someone has to be their voice. We would never recommend this facility and REGRET sending our family member there. The 5 star ratings have NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MEMORY CARE UNIT.

The whole place strongly smells of urine, rugs are dirty, consistently dirty diapers and vinyl gloves on the floors, no activities, residents left in front of the television for hours, residents look dirty, their is no regular routine of washing the residents and not enough linens for the beds.

The activities and things to do in the main room of the memory care unit is JUST for show and are JUST selling points. The administration just talks and yeses you to death. No one is held accountable, especially the administration.

We had read the couple of the one star reviews and we should not have ignored them!

I do not want the administration to respond to this review. Actions speak louder than words.

Find somewhere else

This place is a total disappointment. Smells of urine constantly. People in hallways staring into space. Caregivers only pay attention to residents when family shows up. Horrible nursing care. Would never recommend anyone to live here or for families to chose this place for a loved one. Awful top to bottom.

Think twice about selecting this facility . .

This facility is ideal for healthy seniors . They get good reviews for the social environment . But for my parent who's health and abilities declined rapidly I would not recommend it for anyone in their mid eighties and older especially with any type of condition mental or physical . They have good salespeople but have misrepresented their facility . Its a large facility so conducive to a person slipping through the cracks . The section on the main floor for the more disabled is best for older people if you do need to place someone at this facility .

Needs Improvement With This Cleanliness

We were not impressed with our tour of this community. The staff was very kind, and friendly to my family, and I. However the cleanliness of the community was not good. They could use some improvement went the cleanliness around the facility. We not had felt comfortable with my mother in law living in this community.

I am the Executive Director and would like to thank you sharing your thoughts with us. I am pleased that you had positive interactions with our team members during your tour. Our goal is to provide a warm and inviting residence, and I was sorry to read your impressions of the cleanliness of our community. Our standards dictate a much greater sense of pride in our home than you describe, and I will be sure to discuss this with my housekeeping supervisor to make sure we are living up to our standards.

Everything Is Going Well

Everything is working out very well for my mother at this community. She has adjusted very well to it and we are very pleased. The community is pretty well-kept. The staff has been very welcoming and helpful. They are very accommodating and attentive as well. She is trying some new activities, she has many to choose from. She likes the food, and I've tired it and the meals are very nice. They are caring for her very well and I recommend it.

Some Improvements Needed

The Devon Senior Living could improve on their communication a little bit. Just the one-to-one care could be a little better as well. Overall though, it is a good facility to be at, I rate it pretty highly.

We are ecstatic.

It's absolutely perfect compared to where she was. We are ecstatic. The people are nice the place is clean. They take her outside, and she is showered, and hair combed. Things are so much better. They were willing to work with me, and were great about getting her up and back to life. I didn't think we could afford it but we could, and the people are all so nice. Jules is so nice and wonderful.

Friendly, attentive staff

They do a fantastic job at The Devon. The level of attention, genuineness, and sincerity that they've showed my loved one have really impressed me. They've really gone out of their way to make sure that she stays active and involved. The facility itself is well kept and clean, and they've got all sort of amenities to provide for the residents.

So far so good at The Devon Senior Living

My mom has only been at The Devon Senior Living a short time. However, so far I am very happy with her care, the friendliness of the staff and of the other residents.

Seemed like a nice enough place

We toured this community when we were looking into care options for our loved one. I thought this seemed like a nice enough place. My loved one can be quite a handful but the staff here seemed experienced and professional, I'm sure he would have been safe here. The facility itself was clean and well kept, but it just didn't feel cheery on the inside.

This was a nice community and a very private location. A community more in the center of activity is preferred.

We loved them, every single piece was great.

We loved them, every single piece was great. They hung the pictures, everything we needed. They are very responsive, and keep everything clean. Even out of state the communication is good with the family. The size of their apartment is enormous and the service is really wonderful. They are really, really good. They make everyone feel really, really special.

I’m there pretty much every day.

Some days on the food is a four and some days it’s a 2. I’m there pretty much every day. There is an outside area for residents. The staff is very friendly and I don’t have any complaints about their service. The community is a good value for the money.

Frustrating experience for family...

My Mother was a resident three and a half years. The facility and room were very satisfactory. Attention to maintaining a constant care schedule - bathing, supervision of staff and communication between the facility doctor requires consistent monitoring by the family. Overall the facility lacks supervision. There is only ONE doctor which services the facility and the doctor will not communicate directly with the family. A Sunday visit can frustrate the family when your Mom's care is not being taken care of consistently.


This is a nice looking facility, and the care staff have been friendly. Everyone is willing to listen to my concerns


We only lasted 2 days at Devon Senior Living before the RN there had my mother sent to the hospital and turned out from the facility. So far my sister has sent two emails to the executive director asking for an accounting of why our mother was evicted and when we will be seeing a refund. Tomorrow will be a week and we still have not had a response from the facility. Our next move will be to contact the Better Business Bureau.

Jules at Devon Senior Livin...

Jules at Devon Senior Living is a gem. This is the first facility we toured and we had no idea what to expect let alone what questions to ask. Jules gave us two hours of her time allowing us to ask questions, tour the facility, explore the activities there as well as provide a history of the building. Upon entering the building we felt a warmth radiating from the residents that we did not experience at any other facility we toured. I didn't know what to expect once we arrived but I had thought I might be disappointed in the facility due to the age of the establishment. It was quite the opposite however. The new parts of the building have been integrated into the old in such a way as to make the entire facility feel like a home. The Memory Care facility is like no other. Much thought has gone into the care and treatment of the residents. The rooms are a good size and I was actually impressed that no room in the Memory Ward has a shower located within. I felt this to be a very secure feature as we are constantly afraid of Mom falling and hurting herself in the bath. We loved the common areas with their beautiful views and open spacious comfort. The facility is clean, secure, happy, and nurturing. We are hoping to place Mom in this facility as we have no qualms about this facility being the right place for Mom and we can be at peace with the daunting decision to have to place her in an Assisted Living Facility.

Very warm and friendly. Would highly recommend. Older facility which adds to warmth

They had the best price, the best unit size, and the staff was great.

The food is good, she hasn't complained about the food. I looked at about eight of the communities, they had the best price, the best unit size, and the staff was great. Jules is the incoming sales person, she was great I couldn't ask for anybody to have treated me or my mother any better than that. She was professional and handled herself real well.

Devon Sr Living Review

It's hard to find a place for a loved one, even worse when you have limited time to do it. Our mom had worsening dementia. The staff was excellent to ease our minds and make the entry process as easy as possible. They were very understanding and were willing to work with the family that had extenuating circumstances. Our mom was there a few months. The rooms are spacious in the general assisted living area. The fees were better here than most other assisted living places. Reasonable. The building is old, but kept clean. They could update the décor, but I am sure rates would increase then.
I was mostly impressed with the loving staff that I felt treated my mom as well as their own mom given similar circumstances. From the house keeping crew to the LPN's, all were very attentive, caring, and nice people. The activities team were innovative, and they had a theme displayed all the time to make it fun. I would recommend if you are looking and have a budget you should give DSL a look. Consider the care and attention your loved one needs, and sometimes you don't know and it's a guess or trial and error. Drop in unexpectedly to see how things are. None of these places are perfect, but you want to feel good about your decision and that your loved one is safe and well cared for.
