My mom would need a transfer to another facility if required licensed residential care in the future so perhaps not suitable

The only contact I had with the Wellesley was a telephone conversation with an individual about a general inquiry.

I left a voice message at the number indicated and an individual called me back very quickly and I was able to obtain the information I needed. The person intended for care was far too frail to be admitted to the Wellesley and this fact was established very quickly.
Thank you for your assistance!

Resident of 20 years

1. As a longtime resident of many years (20) living in first independent living and last 2 years in assisted living, I am very satisfied. The Wellesley meets my needs very well and it’s been a smooth transition.
2. One can be as “public” as you like, eg. coffee in the lounge, enjoying activity programs, chatting with others” or as “private”, enjoying my very comfortable suite (reading, TV, Music, etc).
3. Staff are wonderful, helpful, courteous, ready to be of assistance and so are my fellow residents!

One of the smartest moves I've made

Moving into The Wellesley was one of the smartest moves I ever made. Good size units. Great staff. Family atmosphere. Great food. It is very easy to see why The Wellesley was voted No:1 the past two years. In summary, living at the wellesley is the closest to being in your own home. I'm living with my family who make me feel special.
