Customer Reviews

This place is like family

I have no close family. This place is my family. I enjoy everyone and they are very friendly. The place is very clean. I am thankful for the church services. The entertainment and music is wonderful. I am very thankful for this place.

Wonderful place to live.

I have been here a year this month in September. I’m very happy and satisfied but I didn’t want to leave my home. I am very happy here and I couldn’t ask for anything more. The staff is great, the kitchen and dining room is great. I enjoy the movies and bingo and entertainment in the living room.

Love it here

I have lived here 51/2 years. I like all the activities and music. I like all the staff. I have met a lot of good friends. I am so happy I never walk around with a sour face!

Very Welcoming

It's a very nice place to live. We've lived here 2 years and 3 months. The activities are very welcoming. The staff and residents are very helpful. I don't think anyone here has a mean bone in their body. The staff cater to our needs. We go to the grocery store and [name removed] will pick us up when we are ready. There's a lot of comradery between the staff and residents. I've always felt welcomed.

How much I like Traditions of Hershey

This is a very family friendly place to live! The staff and residents are great people. I'd recommend this to anyone as a great place to live. On Friday afternoon's I help run the resident happy hour and BYOB. I have lived here for 2 years. I'm really comfortable here!

Great place to live!

I am very happy here and I would recommend this community to anyone.


Couldnt ask for a better place for Mom,

Traditions of Hershey is very family oriented community, families are welcomed and encouraged to visit. Good Food. Great Entertainment. Provide transportation to appointments. Apartments are very spacious. Front porch is a great place to sit on rocking chairs with other in the community. Great staff. A variety of activities from Wii, bowling, bingo, holiday parties, and happy hour. "It doesn't get any better than that."

[Name removed], was great explaining all the different living options we can provide for my mother in law. The atmosphere of the facility is wonderful, clean, friendly, and could meet the needs for my mother in law.


The entire staff is awesome. Very loving and caring From the kitchen to maintenance, personal care unit and management. They cared for my mother in law to a quality second to none. We are very pleased with their personal attention to her and us, the family. If I could give them a 10 star I would. You won’t go wrong with putting the care of a loved one in their hands. They provide great activities And entertainment. [Name removed] the bus driver worked with us to get Mom to drs appointments even if it wasn’t on scheduled days. [name removed] the activities director, had first class entertainment. The kitchen provides wonderful food. If you can’t find something great to eat, you are way to picky. Their salad bar alone is awesome. Home made soups, at least 2 different entree’s. Everything was cooked to perfection. No mushy veggies with no flavor. I will stop now, just can’t say enough about this place. One more thing, their rent prices are also reasonable for what they provide, better than any other place we checked out.

I am very pleased with Traditions Of Hershey. It is very clean. The staff goes above and beyond for not only their residents but also for family members. I have been telling all my friends to come with me! I hope they do!

Not pleased!

I was not pleased with the way that I was treated at Traditions. When I spoke with someone on the phone prior to my tour, they told me one thing and when I got there they told me another. It was not what I was looking for.

We are truly sorry that you felt mistreated. Our goal is the exact opposite. To further address your experience, please reach out to the Executive Director. We are confident in the care and service we provide our residents, but always welcome opportunities for improvement. Thank you.

Could be a bit better!

I just feel that this place is not providing enough help for my dad. They are all very nice and seem to want to help though. We originally came here because we liked the size of the community and how big it was. Dad likes the food and the dining area.

As you noted in your review, the team at Traditions does want to help! Have you contacted the Executive Director about your concerns? As I’m sure you know, Traditions of Hershey has both Independent Living and Personal Care. We also offer Enhanced Independent Living which provides independent seniors with just that “little bit” of additional support that they need. Please reach out so we can put a plan in place to get your Dad the additional help you are looking for!

Wonderful Tour

I had a very good tour of this community. The staff was very friendly. The experience was a good one. Everyone was very kind to my family and myself. From what I saw the community looked great, everything was nice, and well-kept. This is a very nice community.

We Had A Good Time Here

We had a good time during my wife's stay at this community. Everybody was very kind and helpful. Tammy was accommodating and nice. My wife didn't like the fact there was an abandoned house across, it wasn't nice to look at. They were quick to respond with some help when we needed it. This is a lovely community, it just was not the place for my wife.

Great Experience Here At This Community, It Is A Very Nice Place

We had a great experience here at this community, but my mother has decided to move back home. This is a very nice place, my sister and I said we are moving here when we get older. They have a very kind staff here, I knew she was in good hands here. There are many activities offered for the residents. The food is good, my family enjoyed the meals. I would say they need more of variety of food to choose from. I was very pleased with everything they did for us, and I would recommend it.

I have been living at toh for three weeks now after selling my home in maine of 30 years. toh is incredibly comfortable. everyone is really friendly an there are alot of activities I highly reccomend.

a terrific place

Overall a terrific place for my dad. The staff & quality of care is amazing. After living there for a year my dad has NO complaints. My family feels that he is safe & well taken care of in the independent living option. It is a joy to visit him every week.

Very nice place

Our experience with Traditions of Hershey was a very good one, overall! The aides are polite and friendly, and the facility itself is clean and well kept. They've been very easy to work with throughout the whole process, and I'd highly recommend them!

Great first impression. The facility was very clean, well maintained, and the staff knew each resident by name. The cost is a little on the higher end of our budget, but includes more features than other communities would charge seperately (internet, phone, etc). Small pets are permitted on any level of the independent living apartments - a definite plus! Will certianly remain high on our list of options.

Review of Traditions of Hershey Assisted Living in Palmyra, PA

Nice place. It seems a bit more geared to independent living. They started as independent and ar trying to fit personal care into the community. A little more costly than some of the others that I've looked at but apartments are larger.


Mom and Dad are a little shy. I was worried they'd continue to feel isolated while living at Traditions of Hershey, as they had while in their own home. But the staff is amazing. They're constantly at the door of their apartment telling them about some event that is about to start and digging them out of their safety zone. Mom has become much more animated and engaged in life. She's constantly talking about this new friend or that fun event. I had to laugh when Dad told me he didn't have time to talk - they were headed down to happy hour! Our family is very pleased!

I just think it’s a very fine community.

I just think it’s a very fine community. It is an independent living community and my loved one lived here before he needed more services. This was just a very good place to be. I recommend this community to anyone that needs independent living.

It's like being in a really nice hotel.

It's very clean, plus every time they turn an apartment over the paint and recarpet, that's what they told me. So it's like my mom moved into a brand new place. They recarpeted too, because they had a carpet that had a little bit of pile to it, and put in one that was a little flatter, because they wanted something a little safer. They bend over backwards. They have two levels of care and she's in the lower level, so she doesn't use a lot of the care services. They have a ton of activies both inside and outside. I'm totally impressed by the place. The food is good, I wouldn't call it great but I would say a four out of five. Compared to the cost of other places when we were looking it's, a four if not a five out of five. The fact that it was so compact, it's all one building so there's no going from building to building or outside. It's like being in a really nice hotel.

Very Helpful People and Beautiful Facility

My father is there and we love it! It seems to be working out well. Several family members have gone to lunch with him so far and people are friendly and the food is good. The room is beautiful. It's a beautiful facility. I don't know if they're caregivers or housekeepers but they do help the elderly people with just about everything and they were so helpful.
