I was in rehab trying to find a place that offered the independence that I was looking for but with some oversight. A friend of mine had stayed at the Goddard house and loved it. My family and I spoke with the Admissions director and came in for a tour. It was so impressive, there’s no other place like it, the building is beautiful and had a touch of home, it invited you in.

One thing that is so important to me is the people; the staff here are always happy from the management team to the everyday staff.Some one always greets you with a smile.

I was very impressed with how the COVID epidemic was handled, it was professional and swift. We were extremely well taken care of and it shows because everyone stayed healthy. I felt safe, my family felt safe for me. They say it over and over that me coming here was the best thing we have ever done. I’m staying right where I am; Goddard House is my home.

I wasn’t getting out when I was living at home, things needed to change for me and a friend told me to give the Goddard house a try. I stayed as a Respite guest while trying to figure out my next step. I didn’t have to look any further, I was so impressed with the staff and the care I received. They offered everything I was looking for. They have three meals a day, and that was crucial to my health at the time. The menu choices are abundant and the meals are good. The activities that they provide get me out of the apartment and socializing with other residents. I find myself going to activities that I don’t participate in but being a part of the fun became more important. The variety of activities gives me a full day, and being able to go out on the van gives me that independence that I need.

There’s a great community support and you feel like part of something special, you know that there are people her that care about you.

I feel comfortable here, its home now!I don’t plan on going anywhere.

The beginning of the pandemic was when I moved into Goddard House,I was coming from a different State and it was a difficult transition. The staff here were very welcoming and they accepted me with a smile. I remember that had to wipe everything down before it came into the building, it was a tedious job, but they were happy to help. The maintenance crew came in and put everything together and told me to point to where I wanted my pictures hung. That meant a lot!

I was surprised at how safe I felt. The security of the building was very important to me. It’s a small community, everyone knows everyone else, and they’re all looking out for each other.

It’s wonderful having the van service, I can go to doctors’ appointments, pick up prescriptions and go shopping.The activities keep us busy; you never feel lonely.

The three meals are great for me, I never have to cook, wash dishes or have to shop for food.

The staff are fantastic and they really care. .”
