Customer Reviews

Warm and loving

Three years ago when it became apparent that my mother could no longer live alone, I started a search for placement for her. The Homesteads immediately came up. After extensive research, I called and met with [removed], the owner. She is a warm and caring woman who, because of 25 years of experience, knew exactly what my family and I were going through. After touring the home, meeting the staff, and experiencing the warm, family environment we decided to place mom there! She is still there receiving wonderful care and is happy, healthy and safe! I recommend them highly!

Great Tour!!

I had a great tour of this community and was pleased with how welcoming the staff where to my loved one and I. They had a great floor plan that was east for my loved one to navigate through with lots of great amenities available to all of the residents. Overall it was more of a location issue for my my family and I.

price was good; had two yeppy dogs that would not work for my wife,rooms were a little small. do not think a shared room would work. Porch and yard appeared to be good for walking and sitting outside for bird watching. owner did not appear to be dressed professionally and said hello but then was not available was to be going shopping but then saw he during the tour pass bye. will will revisit in March

A true home

My mom was a resident here for over 6 years. To say she was a "resident" is an understatement. The Homesteads are truly a HOME for your family. My mom and every other resident were treated like family and taken care of with love, respect and grace. From the time we moved her there when she was in early onset Alzheimers to the day she passed away at the Barton house - all of her needs were taken care of to a phenomenal degree. I am a health care worker myself (physical therapist) and I hold a high bar what is involved in quality care in the care of my mom ( and others). I truly wish there was a house like this in every community for people to take care of their loved ones.

My grandmother has been a long-term resident here and I visit these homes regularly as I play the piano for the residents. The care-givers tend to the residents with genuine respect and kindness; and with great attention to the unique, personal care that each resident needs.

Competent, Safe, Kind, Attentive, Caring

I am so thankful for The Homestead.

In my case, my mom lived at the Barton home. I saw my mom and other residents being treated with respect, love, and great care. I was amazed at the ability of the owner and staff to be able to accommodate the variety of needs, illnesses, and levels of care of the residents. I respected and loved the owners, managers, and every day caregivers.

It was obvious that the owners and managers required a high level of care, competence, and kindness from the hands-on caregivers.

At several times, the attention given my mom was above and beyond; and I believe it was more than mom would have received at larger care facilities.

The facility itself was well kept, attractive, and up to date.

Forever, Thank you, Connie and Staff!

Family-Type Homes For Adults:
A Senior Assisted Living Alternative.

We are homes that provide help for adults who need aid in their daily activities, and who should not be left alone. We provide the needed supervision, and gentle kindness that a person would hope to find. We are not a NURSING FACILITY, but homes, ones in which we live with up to no more than six other elderly adults. We have family meals, picnics, cook outs, parties, holiday celebrations, family vacations, (for those able) and outings! We are an extended family. Our residents have been invited into our homes to actually share our lives.

Because we live together, we come to really know our people. (Visit our web site to see pictures of our last vacation!) The ratio of caregivers to residents is one to four...unheard of in other localities! We are not staffed only by a string of people who are here for forty hours a week and then go home. We give warm, loving care and provide the level of care that each client requires.

We accept many different individuals who require specific types of care, including those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Operators have First Aid Certification, CPR plus extensive caregiver training. We are licensed by New York State and inspected by divisions of Social Services.

The Homesteads are operated by wonderful ladies who actually reside in the homestead homes. All operators, prior to opening a home, work and train in the established homes. (as do all caregivers) The operators are kind women who were born to be caregivers. Because they live in the home with their small group of residents, they all become part of a new extended family. Our caregivers, give love and attention to all our residents. They each work in one specific home, but are quite capable of shifting from home to home, should the need arise. They know the residents very well, and understand each person’s needs.

In the Homesteads, each home is different and wonderful in it’s own way. Each has it’s own individual feel and setting. But each home must meet the high standards set by the Homesteads owners, and New York State. Each home is inspected and supervised closely by the owners and the home is expected to always represent the Homesteads in a loving and special way. The owners, Connie, plus daughters Lyn and Michelle, have been providing care for over twenty years. The first home was created in 1992, and other homes were added as the obvious need grew. Apalachin has become the location for our four homes.

Apalachin is a small country town that is easy going and welcoming. All our homes have comfortable decks and secure yards that are available for our residents to use and enjoy. The Barton Home has a lovely koi pond and beautiful gardens that all enjoy. A county setting is what we present and what our residents enjoy. The birds, and small wild life are around providing endless enjoyment, yet again we are located conveniently close to the Apalachin exit off of Route 17. Come take a tour of our homes and see what a wonderful option we can provide for your loved one.

All homes are close to State highway Route 17. This makes it easy to reach our homes from all around New York State and upper Pennsylvania. Binghamton and the Triple Cities are within a fifteen minute drive.
