I want to thank the team at Standish for the help they have been with transitioning our family member who has to for her safety, but does not want to be in assisted living.They are great at communicating with me on a regular business no matter how big or small the issues are. Julie and Hilary are always available.They have helped make our family member become more comfortable in the facility.She currently attends almost every event and loves Lauren and the programming staff. She has even been a few COVID safe field trips.She speaks highly of Mike who helps her with her maintenance issues.She has been challenged with her health and Jessi and her staff have stepped out to help make her feel more comfortable going to them for assistance. Jessi has gone above and beyond communicating with me as well as her doctors. She even did a Zoom call with her doctors which we couldnt even get her to do when she was home.I know transitioning a loved one who doesnt want to be in assisted living is heartbreaking but the staff at Standish does all they can to make it a better experience for all.

This is an amazing place! We were so lucky to find a warm hospitable caring community for our father. From the first walk through, to the move in and anything and everything in between, Standish was-is always there to help.No question too big or too small. Today my dad is thriving! Always in the mix wether chasing sunsets, the beach, or an ice cream run, he is involved!Standish is a hidden gem in Boston!

I want to thank the entire care team in the Memory Unit for the love and attention they show my dearest friend Sonya. .The amazing Ericka Foley recently presented her with the Standish Village Lifetime Achievement Award and party which commemorated her work as an architect and ceramist and her volunteer work for rescued animals and her sheer goodness inside a shy exterior throughout her life .I have not seen her so happy in five years of declining dementia.This gives me the greatest comfort. A shout out too to Patrice and Anna and Linda for all you do to care for her.Louise Hall

I first visited Standish Village looking for a place for my mother. It was far and away the nicest place we visited-beautiful settings, great food, interesting programs but most importantly the warmth and welcoming staff-from executive director to cleaning crew won our hearts. Since then I have also experienced Standish Village as a community partner. If every community had a partner like this is would be a much better world.Patricia McCormack

Standish Village community is warm,welcoming,professional and a wonderful place to live in beautiful Dorchester Lower Mills location.The staff consistently go above and beyond to accommodate residents.The Life Enrichment Director makes activities FUN at every turn and creates continual high level learning experiences. My mom has lived in this community for 5 years and could not be happier for so many reasons. There are many restaurants within walking distance as well as a local church and stores.I highly recommend Standish Village.

I have witnessed so many times, the caring and positive attitude by the staff. In spending times with the residents only positive feedback is given to me about their quality of life there.

A great place, very clean, healthy meals, lots of activities for the residents there and the staff truly care about each and everyone of the residents as well as families that visit. We looked at other places for memory care but the Standish village stood out and we had my mom move in there this past summer. We did this whole move remotely as I live out is state and Julie, the exc director, helped to make this transition go over very smoothly as well as kept me up dated on the transition. I would highly recommend this place for your loved one that may benefit for assisted living and/or memory care!

Mom lived here for 5 years. It is a lively, welcoming place, where staff and residents are genuinely friendly. People are always hanging out together and engaged in activities. Standish is a much warmer atmosphere than most assisted living. Mom was happy here and thrived.

The administrative staff could improve on their bedside manner. We have had numerous disagreements about the care of my loved one. They seem unprofessional and that it is more about money than the residents. The caregivers that work with my loved one are great. The community is beautiful. They offer a lot of wonderful things. I would move in if I could
