Since Ashton Commons is a brand new community, we haven’t begun receiving testimonials yet. In the meantime, we’re proud to share what residents and family members have to say about our sister community, Apple Blossom, as well as other Traditions communities.
"My mother is in Apple Blossom. We chose it because it was very clean and it's brand new. The staff is great and the food is very good. They have bingo, happy hour, sing-alongs, and cards. It's an outstanding facility. Everything about it is wonderful." Rosanne (Caring.com)
"My grandma recently moved into Apple Blossom Memory Care. My mom was a wreck moving her in...who could care for her as we would as a family? They put my mom's mind at ease, and as so, put mine at ease. Emily, the sales representative, went above and beyond to make the move-in easy and comforting. She is genuine and kind and not your typical sales person. Cheryl, the director, was very professional yet down to earth and showed us she truly understands what we are going through with Grandma. Mark, from maintenance, was two steps ahead it seemed, and eager to help the team in any way! Lastly, Brendan, Grandma's nurse, was charming and caring and Grandma smiled and was comfortable in his care. We as a family are truly happy with choosing Apple Blossom. From the bottom of my heart...thank you!!" Sara P.
"My mom has been at Apple Blossom since January. She has made so many friends and the whole staff loves her. She’s happy, she’s healthy, and loves being there. It is such a relief for our family knowing how wonderful she is taken care of. At 96 ½, she’s more social than all of us! Blessed to have her at Apple Blossom is what I tell everyone. Thanks for a caring compassionate staff. Best of the best." Carol J.
"Just talked with Nana and she says she has gained 10lbs maybe more! Loves all the foods! Especially the Beef over Noodles and the Pot Roast. The only “complaint” is being Polish she just wants more sauerkraut! Every soup and desert she tries and hasn’t had a single complaint about any of them." Anonymous
"My mother-in-law has lived at Apple Blossom for almost a year (this is her second senior community). She loves the staff, the activities, and her beautiful surroundings. The staff has done an exceptional job to keep our family members occupied, engaged and safe during this terrible pandemic. We are grateful for the care." Anonymous
"Dad moved to Apple Blossom seven months ago and we are all happy he's at home there. We've visited friends since November, so we know the staff is very caring and attentive--so important! His apartment provides pleasant views of woods with deer and turkeys. Dad enjoys the wonderful food and we look forward to soon enjoying more delicious meals together. Engaging activities, including the theater, van trips and Big Band music during Happy Hour are among his favorites. The other residents are lively, wonderful friends to him and to us. Apple Blossom is everything we hoped for Dad and so much more!" Susan R.
"I went to Apple Blossom, and the staff let me come in and I put on a mask. I actually sat there. It was an in-person visit, and it was a very good experience. They're very friendly and very accommodating. They're still following the rules of no visitation into these extended care facilities so I just decided not to do anything at this time. I watched it being built, so it's convenient for me because of where I live. It's nice, it's clean, everybody was friendly, and the parking was accommodating. Everybody had their masks on. They have the independent cottages when you come in, then they have a memory care building, which is a separate locked building for extra security and to stop wandering, and then they have the personal care/assisted living building. It's laid out very nice. They're excellent. The bedrooms should've been a little bit bigger. I think the bedrooms are too small for elderly people in possibly twin beds with walkers." Anonymous

"The staff member at Apple Blossom was great and gave us a tour of one of the cottage style homes. They were very accommodating. The cottages were brand new and clean. The kitchen had updated appliances, and the size of it was nice. The fact that the cottages were brand new was the most appealing part." SW
"What a wonderful place for senior citizens to have a whole new group of friends. A staff who loves them. Social activities to enjoy, WONDERFUL meals and some[one] to keep an eye on them in their golden years. My mom is 95, moved in January 2020 and has loved every minute. If you're looking for the right place...this is it." Carol J.
"My mom passed in September and we [brought my dad to Apple Blossom] after Thanksgiving. So glad we did. Lots of activity and people to talk to. But most of all, I know he's safe." Debbie H.Y.
"Wonderful meeting with the Admissions Director. She is great, and took time to understand my situation (relative to getting my friend out of a different community and into Apple Blossom). Beautiful property, lovely rooms and public areas! Kind, caring, enthusiastic staff! Loved Apple Blossom and know it would be a perfect place for my friend, Jan." Joni R.
"What a warm and welcoming place. Very caring and attentive staff. Lots of great activities for residents with a lovely dining experience." Andrew A.
"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.
"Great place for family. Great place to call home. My mother lives at Traditions at Solana and it was the best place for her and my family. The community is BEAUTIFUL. The staff really cares about the residents. Always activities, entertainment and great food. Mom has laughed so much since making this her home. She has made many great friends. The nursing staff, housekeeping staff and dietary staff along with the management staff go the extra mile. The beautiful view of the river reminds her of when she was young. It's just a great place to be." Roy R.
"I have spent a lot of time at this beautiful community, and I must say, the new Executive Director and the entire staff are so warm, caring and competent that I cannot imagine my Mom living anywhere else! Kudos Reagan Park!" Sharon R.
"I love the food here! I always have so many choices! I also love all the friends I have made. It's like I have a new family. The staff is so nice and the building is always clean. The community makes me feel so safe." Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"Traditions at Beavercreek is on the top of my list of places to go. The place is new, very nice and very clean. In a two-bedroom unit, they truly have two bedrooms and a living room. Some just have two big rooms where one was the bedroom and the other one was the living room. The dining area was gorgeous. It was like a high-end restaurant with table service." Earl
"Great community. Staff are warm and inviting. The move-in process is flawless. This was so helpful to our family with the transition of moving our mom in. Thank you." Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"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)
"This community has many activities, the food is wonderful with lots of selections. Every one that works here is very helpful and friendly and we are very happy we have chosen it." M.E. Chards
"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)
"I enjoyed the tour of Traditions at Hunter Station. The community is new, clean and beautiful. The garden houses are spacious and everything I wanted! I will be moving in this month!" Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"I toured this community for my Grandma. The staff was very welcoming and warm. The residents looked well cared for. They were having a good time enjoying the entertainment!" Sara T.
"Just a quick thank you for the wonderful lunch tour yesterday with mom. You have NO IDEA how thankful my sisters and I are that this has been such a positive thing for me (truly a divine intervention that I am still shaking my head about!). Maureen was such a blessing to be with, she is very compassionate and energetic. What a great asset she is to your team. I appreciate your help. I sincerely have so much admiration for your passion for making a difference. Gives me tears every time I think about mom actually being able to stay there in a wonderful place with hearts like yours." Kay D.
"When I first entered the door at Highgrove, I knew I had found the right spot for my father to reside. He is respected and cared for in a safe and lovely spot. My husband and I have frequently commented that we hope we are as lucky as he when we reach his age!" Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"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.
"I have my grandmother living at Reagan Park and everyone is very friendly, caring and helpful. Emily, CJ, Stacey and Debbie are great, as I’m sure all the employees are as well. I recommend Traditions." Mike P.
"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.
"Best community I have ever been in. I get a lot of help." Irene W.
"These folks seem to really care about their residents and their well being. Highgrove is beautiful and the food is great. Great social programs. You won’t be disappointed!" Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"My mother has lived at Traditions of Beaumont for over a year. Because this place is so wonderful, I am able to leave town for a week or two and know that my mother will be well taken care of. They get to know their residents and do the little things that make a difference. The facility is beautiful, but the people that work there make it even more beautiful. They really care about their residents and it shows." Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"The staff at Brookside has worked hard to be as helpful as possible to my mother. They have been wonderful. The residents all seem very satisfied and well taken care of by the staff. Relocating a loved one is always challenging, but the staff at Brookside has done an amazing job at assisting and accommodating our situation. The facility is beautifully laid out and they are always bringing in outside organizations to entertain and interact with the residents. I could not be happier with having my mother at Traditions of Brookside." Chip R.
"I like the care at Park Place. We have been happy with the staff and the cleanliness of the community. The menu is very good and we like that they have activities that she is participating in with other residents. We would recommend this community to other families for the care of a loved one." Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"This is a wonderful community. The staff are what make Traditions at Solana so amazing. Caring, compassionate and knowledgeable team. Fun activities, well maintained, beautiful views and great staff." Kristin T.

No matter who I talk to, I always receive a smiling face in return. The staff seem very caring and have a passion for working with this population." Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"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, getting out in the weather or doing the dishes." Virginia O.
"What a wonderful community!" Greg A.
"I find Reagan Park to be exceptional. The people who work there are compassionate and loving. I would highly recommend this community!" Jenna A.
"My father, who is 94, moved to Middleton in May of 2016 after living independently. It was his choice after seeing the beautiful facility to make his move to assisted living. The staff has been outstanding with attention to every detail of his needs." Marilyn155526 (caring.com)
"Our 87 year old physically active mother was in another assisted living care facility for over two years. She loves it here at Highgrove with the food, activities, friendly staff and many friends to socialize with. They provide assistance with her daily medication administration and transport her to some of her extra activities several times a week. She is glad not to have to depend on her children all the time to get her where she wants to go! We have nothing but positive things to report about Highgrove. They have been very accommodating and we feel she is safe and well cared for. And most important to us, she is so much happier since her move in July 2017. Moving a parent is never easy, but this was a great decision!" Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"I feel she is safe. They are so patient with our loved ones. They 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)
"I have been around assisted living facilities for over 27 years. It was a pleasant surprise moving into Traditions at Hunter Station! These attractive dwellings will capture the attention of those who still desire a degree of independence. The staff are friendly and will answer any questions that you may have. They have a calendar of events that tells you that there will be plenty to do in the days and years to come. The aroma from the food, prepared by the skilled hands of Chef Jordan, can only make your mouth water in anticipation. The friendly atmosphere and beauty of the community will definitely make you want to sign up!" Mr. Gil
"As a physician involved in the care of the elderly, some of whom with chronic, debilitating illnesses, I periodically explore the quality of facilities geared toward providing assistance and varying levels of care to individuals in need of supportive services. I have found Traditions at Reagan Park to represent an environment of cleanliness, safety and security for a wide spectrum of residents, from those who are totally independent to others who require strong support and aid. I am very familiar with the excellent track record of the Executive Director of Traditions at Reagan Park as an administrator and ‘hands on’ manager and have great confidence in her ability to lead this facility to even higher levels of excellence. I would recommend Traditions at Reagan Park without reservation." Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"Absolutely in LOVE with this building! From the breathtaking outdoor appearance to the clean and vibrant interior. A gorgeous building all around! The receptionist was so kind and friendly with us. All of the staff we passed interacted with us with warm smiles and greetings. I found the Executive Director to be extremely knowledgeable and very compassionate toward my father and me. We were invited to stay for lunch and enjoyed a wonderful meal where we met several residents who had very good things to say about Solana! Overall great experience and my father’s top choice for assisted living!" Anonymous (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.

"The staff is what really makes Highgrove a 5-star facility. They are so helpful, informative, caring and genuinely are concerned about the residents. Even though it's only been a short time my parents have lived there, I have peace of mind knowing they are in such a great place." Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"After searching and visiting many communities in Lexington, we found the perfect home for our parents at Highgrove! They are still able to live together after 66 years of marriage because of the support and care of the amazing staff here. Dad has been the primary caregiver for mom since she developed Alzheimer's. Living at Highgrove has given him the help and assistance needed for her. They love having neighbors and not feeling so isolated. They've even connected with some church friends here! I can't say enough about everyone who is a part of the Highgrove family. The ladies who care for mom are amazing and so patient. We were impressed with the memory care unit being in the same building if needed. Thank you, Autumn for always having an open door. Many thanks to the wellness nurses who are so helpful and always available. So many to thank for making each day a little easier and brighter for every resident at Highgrove. It’s very comforting to know that your loved ones are being cared for like family." Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"My parents moved to Traditions at Brookside last Wednesday. We chose it for the price, the garden home that they're in and the amenities. They have a two-bedroom, two-bath shower home with a one-car garage and no buy-in. There's a porch in the back and the front, a full kitchen with stainless steel equipment and washer and dryer. They have 30 meals a month, excellent food and the dining area is like a restaurant where you can order from a menu. They have a full salon, chapel and theater room." Sally

"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.
"Traditions at Reagan Park is a very inviting community. From the dietary staff up to the executive director, I have been met with an openness that I can see resonates with the residents. Whether during community events or any other time I've stopped in, it has been easy to see the family atmosphere that makes this home. When needed, their healthcare partners work seamlessly to coordinate care and help residents age in place and stay in their new home." Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)

"The staff is kind, caring and professional." Anonymous (internal questionnaire)
"Traditions at Beaumont was nice, new, clean and large. I toured a studio apartment, which was comparable to other facilities. My mother could go down anytime to eat her meals. They had happy hour every day and the people seemed to be pleasant. They had a library, game room, poker night, bingo and a movie room. The lady that I dealt with was very pleasant and has called several times to check on my mother's status." Earl

"The staff have gone out of their way to encourage mom to participate in some of the activities and amenities they offer. The staff and the other residents know her by name. The food is good and they are open to listening to the family. Reagan Park is clean and the grounds are well maintained. They offer laundry and cleaning services. I felt comfortable when we first walked in and I would recommend this community." Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"I have relatives who are residents at Beavercreek. Staff are all very nice and professional. Facility is great. Phase 2 and 3 will be adding more independent living units. Many relatives have visited and nearly all say 'I want to live here!' Food is fabulous, too!" Timothy D.

"We love Highgrove at Tate's Creek! The administration, staff and residents are the best. My mom has been a resident for six months and has received fantastic care and made a lot of new friends. To me, Highgrove is much more than a senior living community. It's like a big warm family!! We couldn't ask for anything more…thank you, Highgrove!" Anonymous (SeniorAdvisor.com)
"Traditions at Solana was nice and brand new. The lady who assisted us was really helpful and friendly. She knew almost all of the residents and was really positive about the place. What I really liked about it was it's on the river with water on three sides, so almost all the rooms look out on the water and it was really pretty. It's in the city, but tucked away, so it doesn't feel like it. They have a salon, exercise place, outdoor area with grill where they sometimes cook outside, a movie room, a little library. A guy was playing music when I was there." Terri
