Total respect for residents
Both my parents were at Applewood and received the best care with compassion, love, hugs, and total respect for the residents. There is not another facility that comes close to the care that is given here.
When my mother was dying the nurses stayed with her holding her hands, hugging her, singing to her to make her comfortable and to let her know she was loved. They get very close to the residents and their family. They treat the residents... with respect and as if they were their own family members. Every morning there's a hug and smile and the same is given at night.
The whole staff: nurses, the office, kitchen, housekeeping, therapy and all other areas treat everyone the same. They are always there to help and support. When my mother wanted oranges or candy before we could get there, someone went to the little store down the street and got them for her.
I spent a lot of time there with my parents and the only thing I ever felt was love and respect.
To all who work there you are all Angels in my eyes. God love you all.

Stellar, genuine treatment
My mother has been a resident of Applewood for four years, and has received excellent care. She is treated like the special person that she is, and it is obvious that the staff cares about her, and that their stellar treatment of her is genuine. The leadership team; Gail, Wanda, Stephanie, Michelle, are very attentive, and regularly communicate with me directly. The LNAs are the best I have ever seen; they are so kind and patient, and make my mother feel comfortable, secure and safe at all times. I am proud to recommend Applewood to anyone who is seeking long term or short term skilled nursing care for a loved one. Thanks to the entire staff for creating a lovely home for my mother.
I was admitted to Cheshire Medical Center in the beginning of October of 2018 for a stage four decubitus ulcer on my buttock. The decubitus resulted in me having an ostomy. My wound was so bad they didn’t think I was going to live. At the Hospital the Doctor told me I would never walk again. Following four operations, I was admitted to Applewood for Skilled Nursing Services. I had a wound vac for approx. seven months and I had to go to the would clinic every 2-3 weeks. I participated in Occupational and Physical Therapy 5-6 x a week to help me gain strength and walk again. After a lot of hard work, determination & support from the Applewood staff, I am able to walk independently. My decubitus has improved enough to be managed at home with the assistance of Home health care. I am finally going home after a long seven months!
Home away from home
I was treated with the utmost respect and built friendships with staff and consumers. Applewood has become my home away from home. Making sure I was comfortable, and meeting my needs. I would recommend Applewood to anyone! To all staff and those that have made an impact in my life.
