We visited Glen Meadows Retirement Community. The staff was very helpful. They welcomed us and showed us around the campus. It was very clean and very well maintained. They have various categories of rooms, the ones we saw were well maintained and clean. The lists of activities that the residents can do are quite wide. They have games for people to play in groups. They also have the option of going out either as a group or separately to see concerts and activities around the community. It was a very well organized place. We were able to eat there, and the food was very good. The whole atmosphere was very pleasant. The place looked very secure. They have a check in that you had to go through in order to get to the resident. It also offers a variety of different apartment homes to suit different people and different lifestyles.
My 93 year old father was living in another local retirement community in Towson. Four years ago the price of his apartment was going up dramatically, so I decided to compare where he was living to other retirement communities. I found Glen Meadows and it was a much more affordable community. While it was price that motivated me to move him at a very healthy 89, it is obvious now that I did the right thing.
First, Glen Meadows is a smaller more intimate community. The whole staff is very attentive to my father's needs and treat him with dignity and respect. When I am not in towsn, I can rely on the Executive Director to give me a call if she or one of the staff become concerned about my dad. I am able to then address the situation. It has given me peace of mind.
Secondly, the food is excellent! The chef and his staff prepare meals with FRESH ingredients and no repetitive, frozen, "institutionalized" foods are served. Our family often joins dad for the delicious Sunday brunches and we have even opted to enjoy Easter brunch there instead of going out each year. Dad always says there is plenty of variety.
Thirdly, the activities are numerous. Dad enjoys the movies, but there is so much more to do. Being Catholic, he also appreciates receiving communion at Glen Meadows. Also, transportation is available to special events (which are planned) or just to go shopping. Dad gets a ride to church every week.
Our family is more than delighted with the move to Glen Meadows, but it is my father whose opinion matters most and he enjoys living there.
