A Family for Momreviewed on: 10/31/2016 by Janice Kelly
I have been very impressed by the family feeling that prevades Chaucer Estates. Every staff member shows such sincerity it makes me feel that Mother is going to be cared for as if I were there.
Great staff!reviewed on: 10/19/2020 by Bonnie Bailey
My mom has been at Chaucer for 1 1/2 years and they take EXCELLENT care of her needs. The staff is attentive and caring, and there have been several times when staff really went above and beyond to cater to her desires and needs. My mom enjoys the staff and the other residents at Chaucer. It's been a great new home for mom!
very happyreviewed on: 11/12/2014 by Anonymous
I am very happy with Chaucer Estates. The place is very clean, and the staff is incredibly friendly. The only thing I can think of to improve is that they could stand to have more of a process in place to get everything set up for a new resident. For example, it took several weeks and several phone calls for the laundry service to get where its supposed to be.
Chaucer is a great choice in senior livingreviewed on: 12/13/2018 by Tammyr
Chaucer has been a good transition for mom and appreciate Lois at A Place for Mom for helping us find this senior community for her. The price is good for what she receives, the meals and activities are good and the independent housing is perfect for her now with advancement in care if /when she needs it.
LOVE CHAUCER ESTATESreviewed on: 08/13/2013 by Kelli F
I was pretty much ready to make a decision on another facility when I found Chaucer on the Place for Mom website. I toured the facility and loved it so much!! This is the place we (me & my siblings) for our mother. She has lived there since May. I have to say I love this facility so much!! It is clean, large rooms, and the nurses are fabulous! They always return my phone calls, everyone down to the kitchen help are very pleasant. It is obviously a good place to work, because I have yet to find anyone who is having a bad day or doesn't like their job. The assistants and nurses have been very helpful to my mom. I just can't say enough about just how much I love this facility!!
