My mother , Belinda, lived at sellecks woods unfortunately only a short while. She was extremely happy there. She said it reminded her of her sorority days in college. She had many friends , lots to do, and great food. She loved that I was able to come visit and participate in the lovely great offerings that the community had. It Truly warm family like environment. So much so that after my mother passed away I got a job there working in engagement.Sellecks woods of Darien is one of many wonderful LCB assisted Livings. Thank you.

This place is a real gem. My mom is THRIVING and HAPPY at Sellecks Woods. The facility itself is beautiful, clean and secure. The warm and friendly staff goes above and beyond and treats every resident as if they are family. The food is delicious and the list of activities is mind-blowing. I couldnt be more thrilled this is where mom moved and I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a place for a loved one.

My 100 year old father recently moved into The Residence at Sellecks Woods and I couldnt be happier with the move. The staff are all very warm and welcoming, always making time to chat with him and with us as family members. The other residents have been equally warm and welcoming to him. The residence is lovely. His apartment is roomy, bright and perfect for his needs. The food is excellent as well. I feel very secure that his safety and physical needs are being well assessed and taken care of. As an elderly, long term widower who has lived alone and independently for many years we were concerned about how he would react to assisted living in a senior facility, but he seems very happy at Sellecks Woods and interacts enjoyably with staff and other residents daily. This is truly a wonderful senior residence.

My mom was one of the first residents to move into the beautiful facility in April 2019. Our family is thrilled that she is living is such a wonderful place. Not only does she have a big, bright, new apartment with huge windows, she is so well attended every day. The staff is caring and friendly and she is always made to feel welcome. The other residents are also welcoming and not cliquey. There is always someone to sit with and have a chat. I love that Barbara, the director, organizes parties that include both the residents and the staff and their families. Its great peace of mind to have nurses on hand, great cooks, and support staff who always greet my mom (and us) with a smile. And the activities director, Deb, thinks of a nice variety of fun things to do.

We are so glad we chose Sellecks Woods for our parents! The residence is beautiful, clean, and peaceful. The food is outstanding - healthy, varied and consistently delicious. There are so many excellent services onsite including primary care, dental care, podiatry, PT, OT and a salon. The resident engagement team always has interesting events happening both at Sellecks Woods and also excursions off site. Most of all the staff make Sellecks Woods a warm, safe, stimulating and fun place to live. Our parents have not been this happy and stress-free in several years (and neither have we!).

The Residences at Sellecks Woods is not only a beautiful home to my mother, but the staff has been outstanding. They made her move extremely easy, they have treated her with kindness and respect and have made living there enjoyable for her. Importantly, when my mother needed surgery, the staff went above and beyond to support her during the pre-op, post-op and rehabilitation stages, which made a difficult and stressful time a great deal easier for all of us. This place is top notch and they make you feel like you are a part of their own family.

My mother, Rita McKenna, moved in to Selleck Woods in Darien, CT over the summer. The facility is new and gorgeous. Barbara Davis and her staff were first class in helping us through the process. It was our first time and she was wonderful, educational, and patient throughout the process. My mother is well taken care of, very active with all the programs, and adjusting very well to life at Selleck Woods. Being a new facility, it is filling up nicely with all new people to the community. We visit often and everyone is very hospitable. We highly recommend Selleck Woods. Mary Stockdale

Moving my mom to CT from FL was stressful enough, but when we arrived, my mom was greeted at the door and the staff made her feel right at home. Since then, my mom has made lots of friends including the staff. She loves that she can eat at any time of the day an NO assigned seating! The place itself is like a hotel. New, bright, comfortable, but its the people that work there that really make it the wonderful place it is. I highly recommend Residence at Sellecks Woods!

My dad moved into Sellecks Woods in March of 2019. He was greeted by both staff and other residents with open and welcoming arms. My father, at 89 years young has thrived in this new environment. As best stated by the television show Cheers, Sometimes its nice to go where everyone knows your name, and theyre always glad you came. Sellecks Woods has provided the extra that my collaborative family could not provide. Dad is now surrounded by his contemporaries, has a beyond delicious menu to choose from and his own apartment to relax in when he so chooses.

From the very first, , we were favorably impressed with both the Sellecks Woods facility as well as the staff. The facility is new, very well constructed and beautifully appointed. The staff is welcoming, friendly and very professional. Our move-in went well with our positive first impressions reinforced by our early experiences. We have been very pleased with our decision to join the Sellecks Woods community.

Beyond the obviously beautiful, new facility is an excellent, caring group of staff and nursing professionals. They have worked tirelessly to make my fathers transition from a memory care facility on Cape Cod as easy as possible. Always cheerful and helpful, but most importantly kind, in all their interactions with us. They have really gotten to know him and make him feel welcome and appreciated. Soon my mother will join him but in the assisted living wing and we couldnt be more excited for them to be expertly taken care of given their different health needs. As an added bonus, the food is delicious!

Its taken me a while to write this but I need to share my experience with the staff or more accurately Family at Sellecks woods. I was in a real crunch when I first visited Sellecks Woods. It was pouring rain and I was on a major touring mission with my friend susan Callahan when we got to our 3rd facility: Sellecks Woods. I canceled the rest of the stops because I knew I had found my mom a new home. Unfortunately my beautiful mom didnt get to enjoy the years we thought she would but she did get a chance to participate in a variety of activities and happy hours and movie nights before she declined. The staff was warm and kind and helpful. They were there for me and my mom day and night. I dont know what I would have done without the love and care they gave to my mom and my whole family. These wonderful professionals are a soothing shelter in an otherwise cold and uncaring health system that wants to sweep the challenges of the elderly both mentally and physically under the carpet. I will always think of everyone at The Residence At Sellecks Woods from the wonderful director Barbara to the awesome nursing staff especially Mary, Jericha and Sandra to Duke and Lynne in the front and the entire team as my family. Thank You all...Liz Fuller
