Westchester Center – Reviews
Great and amazing place 🙂
Im here going on 7 years,I am here Im 2015,I hated it from day 1.im not ery happy here.
Our father, Edward J Yurus, was a resident of Westchester Center for Independent and Assisted Living for several years. Edward has passed and gone to heaven on November 15, 2020. We want to express our complete satisfaction and appreciation with your facility and staff. Dad was very happy at WCIandAL and was treated like royalty every day of his residency and we want to thank the entire staff for your hospitality and caring nature. You are truly what a facility of your purpose is intended to be and would be our choice if we had to do it all over again. A special thank you to the supervisory staff, aides, housekeeping staff, food services, maintenance, and pharmaceutical staff for assisting dad with all his needs. Dad had extremely poor eyesight and hearing and he was accommodated very well. Dad was treated like family by his co-residents and staff and was very comfortable and at home at Westchester Center for Independent and Assisted Living. God Bless you all! Yurus Family Edward J Yurus 1-5-1922 - 11-15-2020
As a new arrival at the Westchester Center - with the Covid 19 quarantine in effect - I was profoundly impressed and comforted by the warm reception I received here from Day One! The entire staff, operating in 'extra-effort' mode, has gone above and beyond to make me feel at home. One gesture which truly impacted my quality of life was the administration's unhesitating willingness to bring in a special bed that allowed me to rest pain free. I cannot imagine a more heartfelt demonstration that my new home goes the extra mile for its residents! I shall be expressing my gratitude for as long I live here.
Me and my family have been blessed to have our Mom at the Westchester Center for Independent and Assisted Living for the last 8 years. I only have praise for the staff, for the cleanliness and LOVE that is shown for the residents here. I highly recommend this place and really want to thank the staff and management the ongoing care they show to my MOM. My mom loves WC and I really believe it has been her favorite HOME. What a great way to have your later years in life. Loving your HOME. Thank you again! Laura Fenamore
Such a beautiful, welcoming, warming, homey facility . As arriving everyone was pleasant and professional. The place is so big its a community under one roof! Doctors office, 24 hr country kitchen, sunroom, convenient store, recreation room and so much more! The young lady that took us for the tour was simply heaven sent. I couldnt be more happy with this facility.
My mother has lived at The Westchester Center for a few years now. Unfortunately she will be leaving shortly, as her health has deteriorated and she now requires a new level of care. Making the difficult decision for a loved one to live in a place of institutionalized care is never easy. Aging, in and of itself is difficult. Many people with chronic issues may not have support from their families. The Westchester is communicative, safe, and involved. Not situation is perfect, but your loved one will be safe and cared for well. I thank the administration, the staff, and the residents for the community they provided!
A little over two years ago, I moved my mom to The Westchester to give her a safe place to live that was close to me. Having her nearby was important because it she was getting on in years and it was clear she was becoming forgetful and unable to cook or shop for herself - basically, she could no longer live alone. The Westchester is clean and simply appointed. There seem to be a lot of activities AND celebrations involving cake. Because my mom is easy going and rarely complains, I got to know a number of the more independent residents - many who had started off in more expensive facilities. I'd ask them for their opinion about the place - the food, the staff, the environment - most are enthusiastic about the facility - even the food. What really sold be on the facility is the way the staff including Case Management, Facilities, Nursing, Entertainment and Medical responded when it was clear that mom's cognitive health was declining - they helped get her over several rough patches .... until it was clear to all that a Long Term solution was needed. I appreciate everything that the folks at The Westchester did for my mom and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
I arrived here in late November 2016. From the first day, I felt right at "home"! Everyone is so wonderful and I mean everyone. The entire staff works hard to ensure that we are being taken care and that all of our needs are met. What's there not to like about The Westchester Center? There are so many ways to have fun and for most of us, no two days are alike. There is always something to do that keeps me occupied. Plus, I enjoy the weekly trips to the supermarket among many different trips that are available. I would definitely recommend The Westchester Center to anyone who is looking for independent and assisted living.
Its a welcome change from where i was I has a 4 room apartment that was vermin infested.the air quality here is remarkably clean.I have asthma, but since I'm here I'm ablento breathe better,and don't need inhalers Anymore
All in all it beats a piano box under the highway.
Beautiful hilltop location with nice outdoor space. Lovely staff and beautiful interior. Great recreation director and caring social workers. Well located off the Saw Mill River Parkway (Palmer Rd.) with easy access to NYC and Northern Westchester.
I have had to help my elderly dad intensively over the past 6 months, and have been thru the mill,with several hospitals and rehab centers, and scores of doctors and other healthcare workers. Some places have been very good, but Finding the Westchester Center has been a godsend. Everyone working there is friendly, helpful, and professional The place is unusually well run, across the board, and communication and services are excellent. Hope this is useful.
