Seaford Center has an excellent reputation for care delivery.
“Seaford Center does an excellent job in every phase of of the center, the friendliness of the staff, the management of the facility, the quality of the food, and the cleanliness of the facility.”
“Your facility handles patients with a professional and caring attitude. I feel my mother gets the care and love she would get at home by her own family!”
“All I can say is keep up the good work and remember the word of mouth goes a long way, and I have nothing but good things to say about your facility. Thank you so much!”
Friendly caring staff
The staff is always friendly and I feel well cared for. I've been able to talk to my family through Zoom calls and was recently able to visit with them on an outside visitation. I was concerned and scared to transfer to Seaford Center, but I'm happy I did. They welcomed me with open arms.

Learned to walk again
My name is Crystal M. and I have been a resident of Seaford Center since October 2019. At the time of admission I had just had a right below the knee amputation. In my last 10 months I have received my prosthesis and learned to walk again. I am also in the process of getting my own apartment which I am very excited about. During this pandemic I appreciate the time that was taken to bring clarity to the precautions and guidelines that to many of us did not make sense. Prayers and my faith have been what has kept my mind at ease during this very trying time. Zoom was utilized to keep me in touch with my church family every week and that was a blessing. By continuing to seek positivity in every situation I am able to in some way or another make things work out for my good.
I feel safe
I have been a resident of Seaford Center since February 2019. The center has done a great job of keeping everyone safe during this pandemic. The employees are tested weekly and temperatures are taken from everyone entering the building. I understand the residents being tested, but I don't care for the nasal swab. I miss being able to hug my family and have them visit whenever they want to. I am sure we all agree with this.
