Warm and caring

My mother and I chose the Kensington together for her. We both felt it had a more personal, homelike feeling than some of the other assisted living communities we considered. That turned out to be very true. The staff, from Executive Director to supervisors, to... Read More

The care here is exceptional!

I moved my father to The Kensington almost nine months ago, after he spent six months in an assisted living facility in Manhattan. The staff at the facility in Manhattan was eager for him to transfer as he is in the later stages of dementia and is not an easy case.... Read More

Smiles and hugs are plentiful here!

From our first visit, I could tell that this was a good fit for my 89 year old father. He has resided here for more than two years now and is an engaged, challenged, happy, and healthy 92 year old. The wonderful staff, with hardly any turnover during the past two... Read More

Caring Staff able to respond to emergencies

Was especially grateful for the care taken with my mother who was sent to the ER while I was out of town. Kensington, unlike Atria in Ossining, both sent an aide to accompany her to the ER and waited for an hour until a replacement could be found. Kensington staff... Read More

Great place for an intimate experience as you struggle, though not for everyone.

The Kesington is a great place for an intimate experiences as you struggle. But, I think it doesn't meet everyone's needs for those who do not have dementia. That's one of the reasons my mother is not there anymore. Additionally, we were able to find a bigger... Read More

They were lifesavers!

The Kensington provided a home for 89-year-old aunt and within a very short time, helped her to acclimate. A residential assistance building never feels like your home, but they do whatever they can to make it as close as possible. The food is superb, the place is... Read More

Caring comfort for your loved one

My uncle, at age 88, moved into The Kensington in late July of this year. The move came after spending two years in another assisted living home. The staff, the facility itself and the service provided at The Kensington are all excellent. Unfortunately after he... Read More

Wonderful

The Kensington is wonderful. I looked at other places and the difference is that the Kensington feels more like a house and not an institution. It makes a person feel more at home. The physical set up and the way it's decorated is warm and inviting. The staff is... Read More

The Kensington has given my mother better service than any other home she's been in.

The Kensington is the third home my mother has been in. It's different than the others I've experienced, especially in terms of the help. The help they have are all great. They're friendly and just completely different than what I've experienced in the past. That... Read More
