I have been a resident for three days. I moved here from another Assisted Living home. There is no comparison between the two homes. The “Trails” are simply superior in all ways, namely, the people running it, the people assisting us, the overall operation, the comfort of this place, it is awesome, I JUST LOVE IT! Mike Donohue

What a lovely place! Ive been to visit the Trails on a couple of occasions with my Golden Retriever. The staff and residents are so kind and appreciative of our visits. They provide an outstanding level of care and serve residents of all needs, even memory care.

Dad has been there for five years, and I cant imagine him being anywhere else. Primarily because of the staff and the care he gets there, but also because of the many amazing activities they do on a regular basis. I cant say enough about the caring, personal staff. Dad loves it there and always tells people how happy he is there and what a great place it is. What better spokes person than somebody whos lived there five years! Bess Bouley

Our mother was only at Trails of Orono Assisted Living and Memory Care for a short period of time, but we cannot begin to adequately express our appreciation for the comfort and compassion given to mom by the entire Trails staff. We moved mom to Trails because we had heard that it had a reputation within the industry insiders for the quality of its staff. It was very apparent to us from day 1 that the culture at Trails was superior and embedded in everything that the staff did during moms stay totally exceeding all of our expectations. It was very comforting for mom, our family and those close to her to know that mom was in good hands during her final days. Considering the lack of objective information available on the plethora of Senior care options, I hope other families find this review helpful in making a choice of what would be best for them-their parent(s). Despite mom being at Trails during these challenging times, (Covid, high turnover and burnout in the industry) staff really made a difference - from the maintenance man who expedited the carpet install and touching up the wall paint during the holiday week, to the care staffs extra efforts and all the way up to the management at Trails who has instilled such a positive culture - we are grateful. In these times of endless surveys, I dont know that appreciation is really heard about anymore so I am making an effort to leave positive comments out on some of the social sites to help guide others. With sincere gratitude.

My Home Away From Home! The Administration and caregivers here at the Trails of Orono is the Best – they make sure we are all taken care of in a loving family way. They keep us busy with many fun and educational outings, exercise in the morning and a variety of entertainment throughout the week.

My husband who has Lewy Body moved into Trails 1 year ago. He receives excellent care. The caregivers are are warm and loving. They joke and laugh with him all the time. The food is excellent. He enjoys all the activities. The nursing staff is always there to help with care issues. They are a 5 star community.

My father has been at Trails for 2.5 years. We are very pleased with the care, the activities, and the facility. The on-site medical staff and aids are professional and caring. They respond very quickly to questions and concerns. They have an accurate understanding of what my father is experiencing. The activities are exceptional. They include typical care center events such as memory games and shopping excursions. They are unique in that they offer more exercise classes than usual and an interesting lecture series which my father thoroughly enjoys. The staff is careful to check to see that he gets to the activities he chooses. The facility is small enough to be very personal and large enough to offer staff and activities that appeal to all. The building and setting are beautiful, but as anyone whose parent has been in several facilities knows, it's the staff that makes the difference. We had my father in a number of different centers which were more expensive and are very happy we moved him to Trails. The only downfall is that even though the meals appeal to my father, they have a bit too much starch. I would highly recommend Trails to others.

My parents were one of the original residents of Trails of Orono which has allowed my family to observe the staff, the level of services and the management of Trails over a period of time. Without hesitation, the level of care that Trails provides to its residents is exceptional. The staff genuinely cares about the residents. Management places great emphasis on creating and maintaining a culture of "family", not just between the staff and residents but extending to the family of each resident. The facility is very comfortable and well-maintained. I am grateful that my parents call Trails their home.

New management and many changes. Not in the best interest of the residents. Just got a $297 per month raise in rent without an explanation. TV has been taken out of Lobby so residents don't hang out and look like they need assistance. They want it to be more independent living than assisted living. Anytime dining has not happened. Dining room is closed between meals. The last 3 times I have been there during the workday, the front desk is unmanned, just a sign in log. Short staffed in housekeeping and activities. They will no longer accept new residents with medical needs like insulin. OK, let me stop here, over $4K per month. is allot of money to rent an apartment. ADDENDUM: 6-7-18 New director "JEFF" is working hard to make changes. He walked into many unresolved issues and is very easy to talk to. He is putting in a work order for many issues that have been in existence for years. There has been NO increase in rent - it was a one time charge (made before Jeff arrived at Atria) that I was not made aware of and it is being credited back to my mothers account. I am optimistic that under the Direction of JEFF, things will improve dramatically. Looking forward to positive changes. Cathy

I can not say enough positive comments about the Trails of Orono, their staff and employees. All are so professional, caring and compassionate. My mother recently passed away while a resident at the Trails and my father still resides there. We are so grateful for finding such a wonderful facility and all the tender, loving care they provide.

My mother has been in memory care here for almost 2 years. I am continually amazed at the friendly, no, loving care that she receives 24-7. The staff constantly ensures she is safe and happy. Everyone has been incredibly professional, and i would highly recommend this facility. Although she isnt all with it mentally, she keeps saying how much she likes it here, how clean it is, the good food, how they treat her like a princess, etc. (She thinks it is all free too, though, lol.) I cant tell you what a relief it is to hear her say those things. Hopefully there will be an opening for your loved one when you need it.

My mother moved in to the Trails of Orono in August of 2015. After visiting facilities in the area and exploring our options, The Trails was a clear winner. The smaller size of the facility is a plus. Mom tells us daily that she loves her Trails family and how she is so lucky to live in such a nice place. The facilities are beautiful and the staff is warm and caring. Stacy (director) and Angela (head of nursing) are always accessible and show such care for mom. Her caregivers are top notch, especially Renee and Fannie. The activities staff goes out of their way to include mom. Kudos to Julie, Lori, and Sherilynn. Cant say enough good things about The Trails Of Orono.

This is a great facility! From the day they met Dad, to after he passed, the staff showed fantastic comfort and caring. All the staff were so helpful, administration to restaurant staff, but particularly the memory care and health personnel. Although a smaller facility than most, the sense of family and camaraderie which is part of this community was very helpful to Dad in his final year. Thank you, for your caring.

My mom moved into assisted living at Trails of Orono last summer. From the very beginning we knew we had made the right choice. The staff is so caring and made sure she was engaged in all the activities she wanted to be and felt so very welcomed. I believe the smaller size of this facility makes it special. The staff all know each resident whether they are assigned to that person or not and look out for them. The facility itself is so warm and beautiful with a setting in the woods. They have an excellent exercise program which is so important for seniors as well as various other activities and a spiritual program that is nondenominational. Most important, my mom is happy and enjoying her days. I highly recommend Trails of Orono for your loved one.

I only got to work here for 5 months but it was a great experience! Love the residents here and made some great friends 🙂 I worked in the kitchen staff and the residents here are treated so well and everyone, including med aids, housekeeping, management, etc Do their best to meet everyone's needs and make everyone happy. I left very suddenly and wish I got to say goodbye to everyone >.< But I'll definitely be back for a visit 🙂

My father was a resident at Trails of Orono the last 18 months of his life. He moved there after my mother passed away and he could no longer manage on his own due to a debilitating illness. He was very reluctant to make this move. My siblings and I decided on Trails of Orono after a fairly extensive search for the best facility he could afford. Trails of Orono fit all of our criteria; skilled, respectful, caring staff, an aesthetically pleasing, well maintained, clean environment, a good location allowing my 2 brothers that live locally and myself to get there often and easily. Once my father became acclimated to his new surroundings at Trails, he grew to feel safe, comfortable and content . It was a good match for him and our family. I would and have highly recommended it to anyone looking for an assisted living facility for someone important to them.

My parents moved into assisted living together in October 2013 and my mom continues to live here since my Dad's passing in January 2016. The building is new and beautifully decorated. I simply can't say enough good things about the staff. They treat the residents and their families with respect and kindness. One of the special care attendants, Renee, took care of my dad at his death bed as if he were her own father. Others special to my dad cried when they learned of his passing. They have all looked after my mom since. Fairview services residents with on-site doctor visits and the NP, Patti, is wonderful. Pam is the on/site nurse and she's a rock. The relatively small size of the building enables a more intimate atmosphere. The activities have continued to expand now that the building is nearly full. Bus outings, bingo, exercise, music, coffee, art and games keep the residents engaged. The activities staff makes sure everyone has fun. An outdoor patio allows residents to enjoy the outdoors which is surrounded by nature. Lastly, every time I enter the building, Anna is there with a big smile and hello. If I see one "could use improvement" it's that meals and snacks aren't diabetic-friendly and fresh veggies are not a part of the regular offering. Most of the residents don't seem to mind, as they likely ate this way all their lives. All-in-all I give Trails a 5*. I am very thankful we found this place!
