My grandfather has lived at Goddard House for a few years now, I genuinely think it has kept him alive in his final years. This is a man who thrives on human interaction, adored his family home and detested the idea of losing his independence in assisted living. My aunt researched and placed him at Goddard and I could not be happier. To provide some context, I have visited many homes of this nature in my life in the UK and USA. Most (and I mean no ill will to these establishments) feel like places you move to, to die in. Living in the UK, this year was the first time I was able to come visit him since he moved to Goddard a few years ago. The staff are wonderful (chatty, kind and interested in their residents), the building and facilities are top notch and well equipped and the food and activities are great. Residents were sitting in the reception eager to chat and open to newcomers, coinversing with each other in the hallways with their doors open, this is not what I am used to. My Grandfather loves people, loves entertaining and is nearing 100 years old. My fear was he would be staying in his room, eating crummy food and watching TV. The time I spent with him, we enjoyed chair Zumba classes, playing the piano and having an improptu sing along with passers by, writing poetry for workshops, watching movies with other residents... he was always checking the schedule and telling me he had a happy hour or an activity he wanted to do so I would have to visit at particular times. That is music to my ears. Goddard House has kept him and his mind engaged, comfortable (his room is well sized and very warm), allowed him to make new friends, play music to people and every single staff member is polite, professional and happy to be there. I want to get older so I can go to Goddard House and I am excited to return soon to see my grandfather so happy. Thank you Goddard House for keeping him in the picture and letting me forge more lovely memories with him.

As an Aging Life Care Manager in Boston, I am so grateful for the Goddard House. The clients I work with there are provided with everything they pay for and more. Their home and community are just that. Each of them finds the care, relationships, activities, and support they need to live life to its fullest every day at Goddard House.

I’m offering my comments in the spirit of making an always difficult decision -moving an elder somewhere new - a little bit easier. My beloved Uncle lived at Goddard House for nearly seven years and I can’t say enough good things about our experience - the staff, the programming, the other residents, the physical space and grounds are all top notch. As a frequent visitor (1-2/week), I had lots of opportunity to get to know Goddard House well and developed friendships with both some of the staff and other residents. Family is always welcome (with proper protocols during Covid) and the staff is great at communicating with family as necessary and always welcomes inbound calls and emails. Choosing just a couple of things to highlight, I’d have to choose the fabulous, warm, and kind staff and the stimulating, resident-centered programming they design. From a “Men’s Club” to the open Art Studio where residents make truly gorgeous art and have lots of laughs together to the nearly daily concerts and musical performances to the gardening program - these are just a few of the programs Uncle Tony loved and participated in weekly. Many of the ideas for programs are resident-driven which is also exciting and fosters friendships as folks share their talents and experiences. My husband always smiles when I say that I want to put our names in a list to become residents when we need support. He says, “I’m in!”

Congratulations - your search for the right place for mom, dad or any aging loved one could well be over. You have found a special place. My mom was at Goddard House for more than three years, during cancer treatments and the height of COVID, and it is truly amazing. Of course it is beautiful facility and in a great location, but mostly it's the staff. Almost every person - from those who take out the trash to the dining team to the nursing assistants to the executives - was kind and caring and made an effort to get to know my mom personally. I could text the nursing director at night or on weekends if need be and always got a response. Mom's death last year was hard on so many levels and now I find myself missing not just her, but also her caregivers at Goddard who were so important in the final weeks. They really do feel like family and am just so, so thankful she had that love and support when she needed it most.

My mother resided first in the Goddard House traditional unit and then in its memory care unit. She had a wonderful quality of life in both. From the caring and competent staff to the outstanding music and art programs, Goddard House is excellent and I recommend it enthusiastically.

If they had a 6 Star I would chose that! They have truly wonderful caring staff. Its not easy placing your loved one in a facility ,but we never once regretted it. She received the best of care and I never worried that she wasnt being taken care of. A great choice! My family will be forever grateful to the Goddard House staff for taking such good care of my mother! Thank you Goddard House!

Goddard House was the very BEST decision my mom ever made! There is so much I could say about this wonderful place that my mom now calls home - how wonderful and caring the people are, or how outstanding and clean the amenities, or how engaging and interesting (and fun) the programs are - but the main reason we love that our mom lives at Goddard is how happy she is and how much she is THRIVING since she made it her home nearly 5 years ago. Shes an incredibly social, intelligent and creative woman, so our concern was for her to continue to get that at the same level upon moving. The Goddard House has surpassed any expectations we may have had - and they offer her a way to actually do more than she has ever had access to previously in her life. Its not only a relief to know she is in such good hands every single day, but its the best feeling knowing that she couldnt have chosen a better place for vibrant living. I cant recommend Goddard House enough for anyone looking for a warm, welcoming home filled with lovely people!

My siblings and I moved two family members (my father and aunt) into Olmsted early this year, one shortly after the other. The Goddard staff were extremely helpful throughout the whole trying process and Ive been impressed with their professionalism and dedication. I also appreciate their strong communication skills; they do an excellent job keeping family members updated, which has been especially important during the COVID pandemic.

The Goddard House has significantly changed my mothers life for the better. She was living independently, surrounded by many friends in Florida, but wanted to live closer to me, her daughter. We spent the better part of 4 years exploring assisted living facilities in Massachusetts. As soon as we toured The Goddard House, we knew my mom had found her new home. The common rooms are spotless; the furnishings and artwork are attractive and welcoming. Artwork by the residents is often displayed. There is a wide variety of programs to meet everyones interests. Movies, BINGO, exercise, jewelry making, art projects, current events, and concerts in the back garden, to name a few. My mother is partaking in art projects and other activities she never tried before. But it all comes down to the management and staff. Staff members have been there for many years – which says a lot. Everyone is friendly and genuinely interested in the health and wellbeing of the residents. The management sets a tone of inclusiveness, respect, and concern for all. Communication is frequent and transparent. Of course, the residents themselves are what makes the Goddard House special. My mom made many really good friends quickly and easily. The staff helps any new resident connect with others. This is a safe, clean, active place to live in and its FUN!

what an exceptional place! We moved my 83 yr. old mother here right before Massachusetts had to lockdown and everything was so uncertain and scary. Goddard House followed every precaution with communication and compassion. Although it would be many weeks before we were able to visit My siblings and I were secure in knowing my Mom Was being well cared for, thank you Goddard House Im forever grateful.
