My mom is currently a resident of Traditions - has been for about a year now, and she is absolutely thriving there. I can’t say enough positive about this place. She has a lovely, private room. The nursing staff is attentive, thorough and friendly. The food is delicious and served in a large dining room with lots of windows. There is a pub where “happy hour” is served a couple days/week that she loves going to. The front desk is well staffed, friendly and responsive. The maintenance staff are helpful and timely. The activities director and his staff are incredible. Every day a sheet of paper is delivered to my mom with that day’s activities. She goes to exercise class every morning. On a recent visit I heard a live guitarist/piano player perform Irish and other music in keeping with the upcoming St. Paddy’s Day. Live music is a common occurrence at Traditions. They also have trivia, art classes, sing-a-longs, and bus trips — to see a movie, attend a show, visit a museum, or to just go to the grocery store. All of these activities keep my mom interested & engaged. She is having more fun than we could have imagined at this time in her life. Thanks to the staff & management of Traditions for creating such a well managed, healthy & fun environment where we can feel confident that our mom is safe and well cared for - much appreciated!

As a nurse I know how hard it is to age in the community. I see patients and families struggle to keep their loved ones safe, independent and happy as they navigate the process of getting older. Traditions is truly a god send! Initially my grandmother was upset to leave her apartment, but that didn’t last long. She loves all the activities and sense of community at traditions. She is so happy there, I feel like i have to drag her out of the place to spend time with me! The staff are so friendly and nice, the apartment is adorable and the facility is clean and well-kept. We are all very happy Traditions exists.

My best friend has only been living at Traditions of Dedham Assisted Living for a few months now but she has settled in and seems quite happy. Traditions is beautiful, bright, and a welcoming community. You feel as if you are at home as soon as you enter. She is in a safe, clean and caring environment with many opportunities for socializing. She loves the food and tells us everyone is so nice to her. She is making new friends. From the beginning of our search for a new home for our friend Melanie Fernandes has been right there guiding us along and helping us to understand the process and continues to help us to help our friend. All staff has been extremely helpful. A shoutout to John!!

My mom sat by herself in her apartment for years. We dragged her kicking and screaming to Traditions. Now she has lots of friends, participates in so many fun activities. It’s literally like living on a cruise ship. There is a dining room always open and the food is really good. The staff is so friendly and helpful. There is a great atmosphere. My mom is so much happier now.

My mother was living independently in her own apartment, but she wasn’t thriving. We urged her to move to Traditions, but she gave us a lot of pushback. Then, she took a fall in her apartment, and we made the decision to move her while she was still in the hospital. When she first got there, she was angry, but after a few months, she thanked us. Now, every time we call her she is so happy. We don’t have to worry that she isn’t taking her medicine; we don’t have to worry that she’s lonely; we don’t have to worry about her watching TV all day. She’s made many new friends and she participates in all the activities. It’s really been a relief for our family to see her so happy and we would recommend Traditions to anyone.

I cant say enough wonderful things about Traditions. My mom has been there a few years now and its the same wonderful staff. We recently moved my mom to another part of Traditions and Tish, Ashley and Bill helped with everything. Ashley was able to set up a FaceTime with my mom which meant the world to me to see mom happy with other residents making strawberry shortcake. They go above and beyond and really keep their residents busy and happy. Thank you so very much for all you do. (Heres a pre-Covid pick of my mom when we visited)

Where do I begin? The biggest struggle of my life was figuring out how, where to care for the person who gave me all of my values. I was lucky...my mom had this great friend, advocate through the years - Deb Greenwood...and I grew up with Debs husband and his amazing family. I knew that she would not be affiliated with any fly-by-night organization. I transitioned my mom to Traditions almost 2 years ago and I can say that she has been loved and cared about every second of every day. Alzheimers, Dementia is not easy to accept or handle...the kindest caregivers are those that I have come to know & adore over this time. Ashleigh, Laura, Mae, and EVERY aide (I apologize if I have missed any names) have given my mom the highest quality of life. There are always challenges at any memory care facility. Traditions has exceeded any expectations that I had and I would want nothing than the current care for my mom. We had a recent challenge yet the people at Traditions have done everything possible to allow my mom to go HOME and for that I am eternally grateful.

I must say, that during the transition for my mother from home to Traditions of Dedham, the experience relieved much of the anxiety and concern about the significant life style change, because Transitions made the move a seamless one. Their concern, compassion and attention to detail was outstanding.t has been two months now and my mom could not be happier with her situation. Thank you Traditions of Dedham.

Traditions has been a wonderful fit for my father Russ (pictured with his son and grandson), who has been a resident for 2.5 years. It was difficult leaving his home of 35 years, but he wanted to stay geographically close to the town (Westwood) where he coached baseball and taught physical education. To be able to attend retired teacher luncheons and bump into former students has been important aid to his move to assisted living. Perhaps the greatest benefit for Coach has been the new friendships, daily activities, and the structure of this community. Having a daily routine has always been important to him, and with the onset of cognitive, memory issues, this structure has been even more important to making this place feel like home. Thank you Traditions!

Traditions of Dedham is an amazing place. My father-in- law has been living there for over five years and our family can not be happier with his care. Traditions has an amazing staff that cares above and beyond about the residents. The activities staff and the daily events both on and off site have the residents engaged in so many activities there is never a chance to be bored. The facility is spotless and his apartment is cleaned weekly. He also enjoys all the dining options. Traditions is a very special place.

The staff is considerate, accommodating and responsive. The facilities are impeccable and the grounds are beautiful. The food is excellent and the menu is diverse. The activities are numerous and fun and engaging. And most importantly, the residents are treated with respect and honor. Great job everyone! You guys are wicked awesome 😀

My Mom has been at Traditions of Dedham for the past three years and I can say that her quality and outlook of life has improved dramatically.Prior to her stay, her outlook on life was very dim. She was alone most of the day and had difficulty preparing adequate meals for herself due to age and physical restrictions. She was very depressed and would refuse to get involved in senior activities because she had to rely on family members for transportation and did not want to be a bother.She had lived in the house that our father built and we all grew up in for the past 63 years. Being a widow for 15 years seemed to start a downward spiral to her depression and outlook on life. She was always sad and constantly was living in the past wishing that she could have Dad back and would dwell on past family good times. Conversations with her would always revert back to Dad and other deceased family members.Through a friend, we learned of Traditions of Dedham and set up an appointment to bring her there for a tour thinking that she would see what assisted living was all about but she would never leave the family homestead for a new life even though it would improve her quality of life.We were given the tour and treated like VIPs by the administration and staff. After sitting in the dining room, we asked her if she would like to try an assisted living way of life. We were shocked when she said she would.As a result of her becoming a resident at Traditions Of Dedham, she has become a new person. Her outlook on life has improved dramatically. She has become a much happier person. She has social interaction with other residents and staff. The staff is wonderful with having activities everyday to keep her entertained and gives her a purpose in her life. She especially enjoys Wi bowling and games that the staff comes up with. There is entertainment on a regular basis that comes from talented residents and also outside entertainment. When we take her from Transitions for family events, weve noticed that she is anxious to return to Transitions to socialize or dine with her friends. We never thought that that would ever happen.The dining room serves delicious and nutritious meals and does a great job on special occasions and holidays. The wait staff is very personable and learns the likes and dislikes of the residents to better serve them. She has her regular group of friends that she sits with in the dining room everyday.The administration of Traditions takes a personal interest in each and every resident and takes the initiative to get to know the family members on a first name basis. It really makes you feel that you are a part of the Traditions family. Recently Mom was hospitalized, and the Administration and Nursing staff met with hospital staff to plan and make her return to Transitions as seamless as possible.I cant say enough good things about Traditions of Dedham. Everyone is so nice and it has given my Mom a far better quality of life. Shes happy, not lonely and looks forward to life instead of looking backwards and wishing she could change things past.

Traditions of Dedham has handled Covid 19 excellently. By doing so they have kept my Mother who is 96, and in one of the age groups most often suffering fatalities, safe. I just got to visit her outdoors this week. The visitation setup was very nicely done to protect everyone.

Traditions of Dedham is not just an assisted living facility... it is a HOME . My mom has felt at home there from the day she arrived. The decision to move to Traditions of Dedham was made in November, 2016. Though we did not visit other facilities , this warm, and nurturing atmosphere was felt as we walked through the door. Having grownup in Dedham, we knew Traditions of Dedham came highly recommended. Since my mom is legally blind, she is not able to do many things by herself. It didnt take long for the staff and caregivers to embrace my mom and give her the assistance, when needed, to feel safe and comfortable while being able to maintain her independence with dignity. She loves each and every caregiver that comes into her apartment. And many feel as close as family to her.My mom is truly living life to the fullest now! She has made many new friends, participates in a multitude of activities, and enjoys deliciously prepared meals. Traditions of Dedham continues to strive for excellence with giving their residents a voice in how their community is run. Thank you to all at Traditions of Dedham. It pleases me to know that you all continue to do such a great job in making my mom feel so special.It is with no hesitation that I highly recommend Traditions of Dedham.

Traditions of Dedham has been a wonderful home and environment for my mother on every level. Shes been here over six years and the entire staff has accommodated any possible need. The front desk, marketing director, executive director, business office, nurses and aids, maintenance, activities director and dining room director have all exceeded our expectations! This truly is an assisted living that looks out for every single resident...checking in on my Mom and always aiming to please! The entertainment exceeds all expectations. The annual Christmas play is exceptional...our entire family loves to see Gary Poholek performing A Christmas Carol every year...it truly is such a special treat...and brings a big smile to all. The annual Luau is also a spectacular event...with a fine array of food and wonderful music; its festive and fun for the residents and their entire families! My mom truly feels like she has a second family...were all so thankful to each and every staff member that is a part of our moms life...shes in the best of hands...we couldnt ask for a more kind or thoughtful family!

I looked at many facilities before deciding on Traditions and I am so glad I did. My mom started in the assisted living area where she made friends, was fully engaged and very happy. With the help of the very caring staff, she was moved to the memory care unit, when living independently was no longer an option. She is well cared for and treated with compassion and respect. My mom is kept engaged and active and is given many various opportunities to spend her days. The facility is very homey, bright, well maintained and clean. We are very grateful knowing our mom is safe and well cared for.

I offered Residents a few art classes at Traditions. It was Fun! We set up all the supplies beforehand and I found that there was a range of art-experienced people gathering there. It didnt matter if they had painted before, as we all now laughed and painted together. This time we made a pine tree landscape...I loved the memories painting evokes. One gentlemen told me he often paints using the strokes as a way to outline and model copying faces in old photos he has in his room. We talked further about ways he could do that. These Residents are very alert and want me to come back to see their work!

My dance ensemble performed an hour dance concert for the community at Traditions of Dedham. The staff was very friendly and helpful setting up the space so that we could perform. Residence were well informed of the show and were assisted in finding seats. The residents themselves also enjoyed and appreciated the performance and we had a nice talk back at the end of the show with residents. It would be amazing if this great community could receive funding to create a larger theatrical performance space.

My father has been a resident of Traditions of Dedham for the past five years. The transition to assisted living can be a difficult path, for both the resident and the entire family, especially when the move is sudden and unexpected. Fortunately for us, a caregiver recommended we do a short respite stay at Traditions to see how my father would do there. It has been an excellent match. If you are exploring this option for your loved ones, schedule a visit. Youll witness firsthand the kind, warm, professional yet engaged atmosphere that will help your loved one thrive...and give your family peace of mind.

I moved my dad into Traditions of Dedham over six months ago. He was very reluctant to move anywhere, and it took a significant amount of coaxing. I rarely post reviews but feel strongly enough to post and hopefully help others in making this important decision.I toured eight assisted living complexes in the MetroWest Boston area in 2017. There were pros and cons with all and I did my best balancing location, price, services, activities and cleanliness into my decision. This is not an easy task since all facilities will do their best presenting to you a wonderful image during your tour along with expressing the high level of care they provide to their senior population.Traditions of Dedham has exceeded my highest expectations in every area. Initially, I was concerned that my dad would be sitting in his room for most of the day watching television. The reality is that he rarely sits alone in his lovely apartment and is continually on the move participating in almost all the activities. It reminds me of overnight summer camp as a kid. He doesnt like, but loves, the food and is eating a very well balanced and nutritionally sound diet. He can order anything on the menu and often chooses one of the two specials at each meal. The dining room is staffed by an accommodating staff and there are often office personnel who help during meals. Everyone working at Traditions knows every guests name and meal preferences. Whether its tea, coffee, fruit cups or juice, it is always at their seat before anyone sits down.I live 15 minutes away in Wellesley and am a regular visitor. Whenever I am there I witness a staff of employees cleaning everything including hand rails, switches, chairs and walls. The level of maintenance and cleaning is and was a factor in my evaluation of the facility. My dads room is cleaned weekly along with his sheets being laundered. There are several laundry rooms with updated machines at no cost to the community.The management staff at Traditions of Dedham are all engaged in every aspect of running the facility. I was initially surprised by the accessibility of everyone in the community with the office. Everyones door is always open in the main office.My dad has made many friends and absolutely loves his new home and community. I strongly recommend that if you are looking for fabulous home for your parent(s), you consider Traditions of Dedham. They have exceeded expectations!
