Beautiful buildings. Very clean, bright and well-maintained. The apartments are very big and spacious for one person. The big windows let a lot of light in. Lots of activities to keep the residents busy.

We are extremely happy with the care and compassion shown at Whitney Place. The staff is very friendly and seems to have less turnover than other facilities. They have plenty of activities and they highly encourage participation. The Site Director/Manager is very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend Whitney Place to anyone looking for a top notch assisted living facility.

My mother is having a great experience at Beaumont. The therapists have worked with her regularly, the staff has been kind, consistent (no turn over) and very caring with her. The recreation staff also keeps the activities fun and engaging. They truly know all the residents and look out for them.

So impressed with the memory care unit at Beaumont in Northborough! My mom is a resident there now, and from the very first impressions of the facility and staff to the first hand witnessing of care that I have seen given to my mom, I am so happy that we were able to secure a place for her at this facility.

Whitney Place at Natick has been 5 star for the entire 4+ years that my father has lived there. Both the nursing home and the assisted living are staffed with professional, compassionate and caring caregivers. We have benefitted from the continuum of care the facility provides. We are extremely pleased with our choice of Whitney Place at Natick to provide a home for our father.

My mom has enjoyed her life in the Willows for almost ten years! I think that she became several years younger when she moved in. It is truly a community of friendly residents and caring staff. There are activities of all sorts, for all sorts. There a variety of trips that come up during the year and some excellent outside entertainment is provided. It is a relaxed, home town comfortable community.
