Meadowlands Retirement Residence – Reviews
The move in was smooth and friendly. The suite is very comfortable. The kitchen gives a very good variety of choices and the food is very tasty. As for the servers, they are extremely pleasant and professional. I find the staff seem happy and have a positive attitude and it's not possible to pick an individual that is more outstanding than the other, as everyone is really great and gets in touch with me personally.
I was at your establishment recently and thought it was very nice, but i am questioning storage space i did not see any place in the unit to store a scooter or anything else could you please tell me, maybe she just didn't show me.
My aunt moved in 10 days ago to Meadowlands, transitioning not only from her home but also from another city.It is very hard to put into words our gratitude to ALL of the Meadowlands Retirement Community staff for the professionalism and kindness they have provided to her during this busy time. Everyone ( starting with Donna, and Rebecca) have gone above and beyond to make this transition an easy one, And she has been raving about the food!! Top notch facility all around
We recently had my dad booked to stay in a respite room for 4 weeks at Meadowlands as a transition from hospital to home. After staying 2 weeks he enjoyed it enough to move in permanently. Our family has been so pleased with the caring and respect shown by all staff at Meadowlands. Rebecca has been especially helpful in this transition from home to retirement community. My dad has enjoyed the wonderful meals and friendly people. He has even begun using the gym on a regular basis. As an outgoing person, he has even played his guitar for a sing along with some of the residents. After touring several other retirement communities, we would highly recommend Meadowlands.
My Mother went for a two-week trial at The Meadowlands in 2017 and refused to leave to return home until her suite was ready! That is how quickly she felt at home. The food, the accommodations and amenities are top notch but it is the staff who are the most impressive - caring. friendly, helpful and professional. During Covid their care was exceptional. We couldn’t have picked a better place for my Mother to be.
Moved our 96 year old father into the Meadowlands today. The amazing staff went out of their way to make him feel welcomed in his new environment. They made this moving experience as seamless as possible and were there to assist with any questions. I highly recommend the Meadowlands. The grounds are scenic, the mood is good and the staff are absolutely lovely.
Meadowlands has large windows allowing lots of sunlight which in turn nourishes all the tropical plants that decorate the entrance and hallways throughout . Definitely brightens one’s day. Donna was very helpful with her advice and steered us in the right direction for the care of our mother.
This is a little late as my mother died peacefully at the Meadowlands on Nov. 18, 2019. She had lived there for 12 years and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff were great, food was great. I would be welcomed for the occasional meal and we would stay overnight sometimes which added to Mom’s satisfaction with being there. She felt safe and her suite was lovely. On about 4 occasions over the years, we used one of the rooms for family parties which was great. Mon also appreciated that the Catholic priest would come in for mass or someone from St Ann’s Church would bring communion and have a prayer service for anyone who was interested. I felt that the people at the Meadowlands were always interested in feedback and suggestions...things that would enhance the quality of life of the residents. I recommend this home.
Since moving in during the Covid 19 pandemic, the wonderful staff has gone above and beyond to keep our mother engaged. With a constantly changing menu, plus activities on their in house channel to keep everyone motivated. They work with the Community members to keep everyone safe.
Thank you to the entire Meadowlands team for your compassion, dedication and tireless hours to ensure the safety and well being for ALL. Whether it is the personal sacrifices you make everyday not seeing your extended family, friends to reduce the probability of bringing COVID19 to the workplace or, the alternative activities you have painstakingly created or, the countless extra shifts you have worked or that act of kindness demonstrated to a CM whose day you unknowingly made with an uplifting word...thank you! We would like to thank you for the courage shown in the recent plain-speak communication that was necessary addressing the continued arrogance demonstrated by a few Community Members and their loved ones whose dont you know who I think I am attitude places ALL staff and residents in danger everyday by proactively choosing to blatantly ignore provincial laws and VIVA rules and meet your family, friend in the parking lot, behind the dumpsters or a patio. For those who alter the facts around whom you have been in contact with or, request an expired COVID19 test be honoured..STOP! What is unfathomable to our family is this behaviour continues even after a fellow CM was hospitalized with COVID19 and miraculously with the quick action by management the outbreak remained one and while this is one too many it is unparalleled in LTC and retirement homes across the HGTA. Kudos! We are certain we speak for the majority of CM families, we are thankful the Meadowlands team treats our family members as one of theirs and painstakingly and tirelessly does everything possible to provide the best quality of life during these unprecedented times and in doing so keeping our loved ones safe and COVID19 free. We would appreciate if this small subset of rogue CMs and their loved ones demonstrated behaviour commiserate with this shared position. A particular thank you to Dawn, Emily and Linda & the nursing team! Be safe!
My mom moved into Meadowlands on October 31st, 2020. While this wasnt the best time to move in with Covid and restrictions, Meadowlands did everything they could to make her feel at home. As I was deemed an essential care giver, and helping to set my mothers apartment up, I was able to spend each day with her through the week which was extremely helpful. During this time I got to know many of the staff, especially Melissa Batista. She was exceptional and still is!! As I live in the states (yes, I did have self isolation for over 2 weeks and negative Covid tests before entering Meadowlands), she is always extremely responsive to my emails, as well helps to keep me informed of things going on with my mother. I cant say enough good things, except...thank you. I do appreciate her and all the staff at Meadowlands help. They facetime with me twice a week, feed my mother wonderful chef prepared meals (reminder I was there to see many of them the first week and yummy!!!) give my mother the help she needs and gives both my brother and I relief at knowing she is being taken care of. Thank you, thank you , thank you!! I cant wait for this all to be over so I can come back to visit!
Meadowlands has been a fantastic place for my parents to stay. Top quality! The food is excellent (Ive tasted it myself several times; I like the steak :.). The facilities are wonderful. My dad loves the pool, exercise room, and more! Most importantly, all of the staff at Meadowlands are so kind and helpful. The staff provided around-the-clock, top-notch palliative care for my mom at the outset of the pandemic. Then, throughout the pandemic, the staff has worked tirelessly to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all of the residents. There are always creative activities going on for the residents too. I highly recommend this residence. Well done to the Meadowlands team!
Meadowlands December 2020 When my aunt moved to Meadowlands she found a home in a community that allowed her to be her true self. She was able to participate and engage in a variety of activities and even served as an orientation guide for incoming residents. She helped look after the resident birds and always dressed up for Halloween, winning a prize for her costume. She made friends with the staff and with many of the residents. As her health needs increased, the nursing staff took on a pivotal role in her care and enabled her to stay in the community until she moved to long term care. The nursing staff and especially Linda, their leader, stepped into the role of primary medical contact as I needed leg surgery and was unable to fully fulfill that role. In an annus horribilis, they were able to look after her needs and allowed me to look after my own health concerns. While Meadowlands is a business, the staff goes beyond their job descriptions to fulfill their responsibilities not only to their employers but also to the residents in their care. Families entrust their most precious loved ones to strangers and hope our relatives find a safe and happy home. The friendliness of the staff, the willingness to make lives easier, the patience with residents and their families and the genuine desire to be of service, is to be applauded. While my aunt is unable to remain, she and I are both grateful for the years spent at Meadowlands. Thank you.
As a family we cannot say enough good things about the Meadowlands. The last year had been a struggle for my mother living on her own, after a scary fall that resulted in broken bones, surgery and a long recovery in hospital - all during the Covid lockdown, she finally came to the decision it was time to leave her home of 65 years and move to a retirement community. The idea of moving her into a retirement home was daunting to say the least especially during Covid. Our whole experience with the Meadowlands from our first initial visit to moving her things in and then finally her arrival - everything was smooth, easy and efficient all thanks to the staff at Meadowlands. Donna is so kind and truly made us feel she cared about this transition going well as much as we did. This move was overwhelming for our mom, her whole life had turned upside down during a global pandemic. We were so concerned for how she would adapt, how she would fit in and whether or not she would be comfortable. We cannot believe how quickly and easily she adapted to her new home. She is making friends easily - thanks to the warm welcome of staff + residents. She loves the activities that are arranged - movie nights, shopping trips, etc. And she cant say enough good things about the food. We truly are so thankful for everything Meadowlands has done and continues to do for her. Making the choice to move your parent into a retirement home is not easy - its something we struggled with as a family for quite a while we felt strongly it should be her decision, we all had anxiety around this move. Now looking back it was the right choice and we can all sleep well at night knowing she is safe and happy. Every time we pick her up she has a huge smile on her face and cant wait to tell us whats been going on and all the sweet people she has interacted with. Thank you Meadowlands!
We looked into Meadowlands Retirement with the intention of our Mom moving from her home into this retirement community. Meadowlands was our choice for location and the friendliness offered by everyone (staff and residents) when you arrived. We were invited to stay for a lunch during one of our visits and the food was delicious. Although our mom never did move into Meadowlands, Donna Carlesso was always available to offer assistance and advice. Our mom has since been placed in a LTC home, and it is very unfortunate that she never got to experience the retirement life at Meadowlands. Thank you to Donna for all your help and kindness during our journey.
My mother has been a resident of Meadowlands Retirement for the past 3 years . My wife and I couldnt be more pleased with the staff and the care and comfort my mother receives. Donna is always a pleasure to deal with and has been an immense help throughout this Covid crisis. It hasnt been easy on anyone but with the staffs help , we have managed as best as possible. Cant say enough about the extra effort that the staff has put in to keep the residence safe . Great work all.
My mom has resided at Meadowlands for 2 years now. She loves it and as her family we are grateful to know that she is cared for and yet has her independence. They staff are her friends and we know they truly care for her as a person. They respect, encourage and make her feel valued. They work hard in particular during COVID to keep our mom and other residents physically safe while also ensuring that she is stimulated and has activities to keep her mind busy. This is not an easy time for many families and we struggle with not being able to visit but we know the staff are doing everything they can. We cant thank the staff enough for going above and beyond. With admiration, appreciation and respect....The Ayers family.
My mom has been a community member at the Meadowlands retirement home for the past couple of years and I couldnt be happier with the experience. There is so much for the community members to do and a lot of social activities too. My mom accesses the Wellness Centre on a daily basis and they have been great looking after her health. They have been particularly amazing during the Covid-19 pandemic and have worked tirelessly to ensure that the community members stay connected to their loved ones, which has meant a lot. Again, I couldnt be happier. Thanks to all the staff! Karen McPhee
My mother, Muriel Aylward lived ten wonderful years at the Meadowlands Retirement Residence in Ancaster. I would like to extend a very sincere thank you to the Meadowlands management and all the staff that made my mothers stay at the retirement community so pleasant. She was always treated with so much compassion and kindness. She thoroughly enjoyed having her meals with her friends every day and often would say it was like living on a cruise ship. It gave us peace of mind knowing that she was so happy and comfortable. In this COVID 19 environment , Meadowlands is doing a great job looking after all the community members and providing updates to the family members, keep up the good work. Wishing you all success in the future, Glenn Aylward
Amazing job at The Meadowlands with zero Covid cases!
I have lived here for 2.5 years. I can say I am very happy living here. The nursing staff, including the PSWs are great. Under the circumstances of COVID we had great meals that the chefs came up with, pleasantly served by great dining staff. Housekeepers kept the place spotless and clean all the time. Lifestyles team were always available and helpful with anything we needed and to keep us in contact with our family and friends. The administrative staff have been so pleasantly helpful to all of us. Bravo to everyone, all staff at the Meadowlands and thank you so much!
The Meadowlands has been my mothers new home for over a year now. The care she has received has been exceptional. The staff are all dedicated, caring professionals and have performed heroically during the pandemic in order to keep their residents safe and healthy. Management have always been responsive and effective, but during COVID have been even more outstanding! It has been wonderfully reassuring to me and all of my family that my mother is in such a lovely and caring environment.
My brother recently moved into Meadowlands Retirement Community . I was very concerned about how he would adjust to such a change in his life. I didnt need to worry - the staff at Meadowlands is so welcoming, kind & understanding, he has adjusted much better than I could hope for. Even though he is in quarantine for his first 14 days, the folks who have contact with him are so pleasant they are helping to make that time bearable. Also, no complaints about the food - plentiful & tasty!
Meadowlands is a wonderful retirement community. The staff are always caring and friendly to both residents and visitors. The facilities are exceptional and you could not ask for more. Meadowlands is impeccably well managed especially during the Covid pandemic. I could not ask for a better home for my father. Five plus stars!!!!
My father has been at the Meadowlands Retirement for just over a year and the care he has received has been exceptional. During this difficult time with the Covid crisis, staff have been extremely supportive and caring and have gone above and beyond to make certain that father is well cared for. They have also been a great support to our family and have always communicated with us when we need them. My father has developed a fondness for so many of the staff as they have been willing to give him special attention when it is needed. Thank you to all of the staff of the Meadowlands...you are all heros!!
During this COVID outbreak I have found the staff at Meadowlands to go well beyond expectations when it comes to caring for my mom. Most recently, my mom lost her hearing aid somewhere in her unit. I requested entry into her suite to search for it before paying to have it replaced. The administrative staff went out of their way to support me in this regard. Two of the support staff (Violet and Melissa) conducted a VERY THOROUGH search of my moms unit prior to my visit. As a result, I did not need to enter the residence myself and felt there was nothing more I could do then what was already done. I could not have been happier with the way this situation was handled. Thank you to the entire staff at Meadowlands for looking out after my mom. Stay well and stay healthy.
I have been working here since 2007 and have been enjoying it since, its a great place to be part of. The team members and community members are easy to get along with, its like home.
All of the Community and Team members create a sense of family and always support each other! I have loved my time as a part of the Meadowlands team!
A wonderful working environment filled with amazing people who are always willing to help !
Meadowlands has been a wonderful choice of retirement community for my family member. The staff is kind, patient and professional. In particular, communication has been outstanding during the pandemic - theyve done an amazing job of keeping everyone safe and well informed during these past tumultuous months. The facility is bright, clean and welcoming and my family member is extremely happy with the choice she made in moving to Meadowlands.
Wonderful staff, everyone is exceptionally helpful and kind. The receptionist Mir is extremely welcoming, quick and efficient with any inquiries and concerns. Highly recommend.
Right from the beginning Meadowlands has felt like home to mom. She enjoys her unit, and always tells us about the latest activity and, or staff acts of kindness. A big Thank you to the staff for everything they do to keep mom safe & happy during this pandemic.
Want to know what makes these folks great? Its not the great food. Its not great suites. Its not the great services. Its not the great activities. Its the people. My Dad moved in this week and hes been surrounded by lovely people who genuinely care about him. Its been hard to go through this with Dad. Were saying goodbye to our home and the memories that permeated the walls of that place for 50 years. Were shedding a few tears of loss around that. The thing thats been such a pillar to lean on through this is the love thats been flowing in abundance from every single team member from Dads new home. I feel like our family has increased in size exponentially. Christmas is going to be big this year! Thanks to everyone...Donna, Eve, Laurna, Linda, Violet. Most especially, thanks to the night staff in the nursing station. I really wish I could remember your name (perhaps Ill be moving in with Dad sooner than I thought). However, when Dad found himself lonely and sad in the middle of the night you were there. Ill never be able to thank you enough.
