The Residence at Bethel Park - Bethel Park, PA has yet not published prices.
Bright and Cheerful Setting
My mom picked a one bedroom apartment; which is very spacious with nice closets. She also has a big first floor patio that was a must for her to be able to sit outside with her pup.
[Name removed] is bright and cheery - colors are current with so many activities and outings offered. She is never bored. People are really friendly and within weeks she had more friends then she ever has had. Food - they offer 3 meals a day. She’s not a huge fan of the food, but they do offer alternative choices and a 24 hour bistro - so when hungry she can go grab something from that. She usually only eats lunch (which is their big meal) there because not an early bird for breakfast. They are now offering car services daily within a 10 mile radius. Laundry on each floor. Light housekeeping weekly included. [Name removed] is not an assisted living community, but they do offer care services at an additional rate through [removed].
The apartment space is nice - my parents are in a one bedroom unit and it is adequate. The weekly housekeeping is fair - doesn't seem to include dusting. The meals are fair as well. When they moved in, I would have rated them lower. Fortunately, alternate selections are now offered at every meal in case you don't like what's on the menu. That was a huge improvement. I've eaten with them several times and feel the protein content of the meals should be increased. Activities have been good although they describe some behavior at group gatherings that I can only describe as "high school - like". However, most staff and residents are lovely people. I guess no matter how old we get, there will always be some drama in situations where we congregate. The situation with the locked exterior doors has changed several times lately. That, too, has improved with the pushback to 9 pm. However, the residents should have a way to access the main entrance after hours like a key fob. Overall, the monthly cost seems high for the package.
This place is clean, fresh, bright, active, and offers everything you can think of. The marketing director, [name removed], is a knowledgeable gem and knows her business and location very well. The residents are friendly, inviting, and so very welcoming to my dad. This seems to be the perfect place to foster independence as well as provide a well-rounded social network needed for the aging, active elder population.
Rooms are larger than other places that I looked. This will give Mom room to working on her quilting projects. They serve 3 meals a day which Mom would also like.
