Customer Reviews

Very nice place. Will definitely consider for the future.

Very nice facility. High marks for [Removed], Asst. Executive Director, who met with us and gave us the tour. Services are very extensive. Good start to our researching the options.

Horrible experience

Whalers cove is the worst place anyone could put there mom or dad in. The food is horrible they are always running out of something. The cna's there are just awful. The main boss is just a diagrace to the place. Its such a beautiful building but the way that lady runs whalers cove they will never have any help or residents. Dont move anyone you know into here!

Angels to help!

Thanks to the Whaler's Cove staff to making the decision to join their community an easy one. From day 1, my Dad was welcomed and had everything done to make his transition as simple as possible. They did everything to make him feel right at home...it was like getting a brand new family! I could not have done everything without them! Thank you for being the angels taking care and watching my Dad during the times I can't be with him. Thank you again!

Overall I'm very impressed by what I've seen of this place! It's a very nice looking facility, it's very spacious and well decorated, and they keep it very clean. The staff all seemed very friendly as well. The only real downside I saw is that they don't have any outdoor space available, and none is really available nearby since the facility is a converted commercial space. I'd love to see them turn some portion of a nearby parking lot into a small park!

Large living spaces (twice ...

Large living spaces (twice the size of all the others) Large interior common areas. No apparent outdoor area other than the street sidewalk. Dad and E liked this place and knew some of the folks.
