Since Bristol is a brand new community, we haven’t begun receiving testimonials yet. We're also proud to share what some of our residents and family members say about other Traditions communities:
Thank you so much for thinking of us with the Valentine’s treats. Such a nice surprise! And so delicious!
When Dick and I came home from running errands yesterday, Rachael’s car was in our driveway and she was just then delivering the goodies to our doorstep. She was so adorable as she greeted us and shared the fact that she was from The Bristol. That was such a caring, kind gesture from your facility. Thanks to you and Rachael—and will you pass along our thanks to others responsible for our treat.
Looking forward to seeing you again later next month!" Diane S.
"Carrie, thanks so much for these updates. They are extremely helpful. Linda and Cecil have had nothing but positive things to say about Bristol and are so appreciative of how kind everyone is and all the efforts to drop off in-room activities, snacks and drinks, etc.
And before the quarantine, they were so impressed (me too!) that you had activities - outside fire pit and music, painting class, boxing, outside excursions (I hear about them all!) - despite the fact there was less than a handful of residents at the facility thus far. I don’t think many places would have gone to the trouble and expense with so few people living there.
My mom reports it appears there are going to be some amazing Christmas decorations and she’s excited about that, too.
Just wanted to pass along the feedback. It makes me so happy that they’re happy. Thanks for everything, Carrie, and please convey my appreciation to your staff as well." Lisa
"Outstanding people and staff!" Andrew C.
"Beautiful facility, Chef Bradley Balch is a true class act." N Mac
"I am so excited to see your community when we are able to. It will be such a great option for patients. I am so happy that Carrie will be the ED as well. She is amazing and so great to work with. Please let us know if we can do anything for you." Betsy F.
"I am so glad we chose Traditions for Mother's memory care! The staff there is wonderful. Everyone from maintenance, to the chef, nursing, concierge, etc. has been so helpful and friendly. Mother has embraced her new friends (staff and residents) and is truly happy. Who could ask for more?" Sunny C.
"I've never been more blown away than I was by the passion the Traditions staff displayed throughout this process." Josh K.
"I can't begin to thank each and every one of you gals for how wonderfully you took care of my sister, Dorothy. She loved each of you and this lovely home. You all have a very special place here and do great work. Dorothy loved you all." Bill & Jan B.
"A warm and friendly place. Everyone is caring and helpful. The facility is beautiful with many things for the resident to do." Anonymous (APlaceForMom.com)
"There are not enough words to express my thanks and gratitude to the staff of Traditions. They have been so loving and thoughtful with the care of my mother. The facility is lovely as are the other residents. My mom is enjoying the new friends she has made and all the activities she gets to participate in. Thank you to everyone at Traditions at North Willow." Terri M.
"We have a breakfast group that meets every other month at Middleton. Max, the Middleton Community Relations Director and the staff do an outstanding job in hosting us. The food and facilities are very good." Dave830854 (caring.com)
"The building is well-designed and very functional. The interior is extremely wide, decorated, attractive and clean. The administrative staff is efficient, open to suggestions, and involved to an unusual extent. The nursing staff is a really caring group, very attentive and helpful and all of the nurses, waiters and aides are supportive and cheerful. The residents seem to be content and satisfied with the food and activities. What a great day it was when I found Middleton!" June H.
"Things are going well for my mother since she moved to this community. The staff is all friendly and the meals are great. We have not found anything that needs to be improved." Anonymous (APlaceForMom.com)
"My wife passed away in 2016. I have only one child who wanted me to live with her. She has four teenagers at home, so I didn't want to upset their life. But my daughter wanted me to be close to her, so she suggested Middleton. I arrived April 1st and everything has been wonderful. I've had two strokes and I needed good healthcare. I get that here. I have met numerous friends and every night I eat with the same bunch. Food is good here, a lot of activity to keep me busy. I love this place!!" Tom G.
"Lovely!! The new Traditions at North Willow is absolutely beautiful. The soothing gray/blue palette of colors creates a calm and relaxing environment. The staff is wonderfully friendly and helpful. Definitely a place to check out if you are downsizing and looking for a fresh, new, beautiful place to call home!" Johna C.
"The staff is kind, caring and professional." Anonymous (internal questionnaire)
"Our family is very pleased with my father's move to this community. It is a very nice place with great people. We know he is safe and receiving great care. I do not live in the same state, but I have gotten nothing but positive reports from our family. It is an excellent community and I would recommend it." Anonymous (APlaceForMom.com)
"Staff members are helpful and kind. Management has been open and responsive to all feedback." Anonymous (internal questionnaire)
"Middleton kind of had all those aspects that I was looking for for my mom. For instance a lot more normal kind of lifestyle things: the club, the happy hour, the ability to go out, outdoor living, which is really important to my mom. And she had the ability to choose from the options that they had here. Dining that would allow you to order from a menu, those kinds of things.
I think that because with mother here, I feel that it's given her some safety, some security, while still honoring her independence. And that's been a comfort for me, that I'm not thinking she's by herself. She's very social and she has lots of friends. Lots of activities, which she did not have in her condo. My husband and I were her social outlets, probably for quite a while." Kathy W.
"You have stable-headed and strong nursing/CNA staff. My trust is growing." Anonymous (internal questionnaire)
"I felt I should make the change. I was getting older, my husband and I are getting older, I have a big home. And so I thought I should make that change. And I saw this building going up and what I saw I liked. Opening day, I came and I fell in love with it. From the management all the way down, absolutely great.
The chapel I do appreciate having because I visited it the other day and they have a mass every last Friday of the month. I look forward to that and that's a nice feeling right there. And if I have nothing better to do, I walk up to the chapel and there's always someone there having a service. That's a nice feeling, too." Dot H.
"Everyone treats our loved one like family. We are so glad we made the move!" Anonymous (internal questionnaire)
"It was harder for me to get around and i couldn't drive. And so my niece and I decided, it was time for me to find a place where I could have companionship. I just love getting up and coming to the restaurant and having something to eat and not having to worry about my food and the weather of getting out and doing the dishes." Virginia O.
Thanks for making our first week so great! Everyone has went above and beyond." Eva, Teresa, Steve, Mike, Leo (some of our first residents)
"I feel she is safe. They are so patient with our loved ones. The get the residents involved. The staff call residents by their names. They smile and say hello. It takes special people to work with memory care people. They are that special. I can sleep! Max442033 (caring.com)
