Colonial Gardens Gracious Retirement Living Resident Testimonials

"We fell in love with the apartment for my mother the first time we looked at it. It’s very bright and cheerful, and although it’s a studio apartment, it’s very spacious. She has the option of attending planned activities, which she does on many occasions, but also has the privacy of her own pad as she calls it when she needs it. Colonial Gardens has been a blessing for my mother, who is 95 years young, and completely independent. She has made so many wonderful friends, and refers to the staff as her second family. She can always count on a hug or two, and many friendly and smiling faces. I feel very fortunate to have my mother live in this friendly care free community, but most importantly, she loves it and is very happy."

"I have been here at Colonial Gardens for about five years now. I have been very happy and content. The staff is very polite, respectful, and attentive. All do their jobs very well. The activities are many and great!​"

Mary L. Gilligan - Colonial Gardens​

"Early in 2018, I realized that I could no longer easily or safely continue with the daily tasks of keeping house at my two-bedroom condo. The moment I entered Colonial Gardens and saw the bright engaged people, the beautiful dining room, and the wonderful décor, I felt at home. I have not second-guessed myself once. I’ve greatly enjoyed the residents, the entertainment, the workshops, trips to the mall, church, the happy hours on Friday nights, the movies, and so much more. I have been supported by the in-house managers and staff and the chef who has taken care of my minor dietary needs. Needless to say, I am pleased with the decision I made and am content to continue enjoying myself here at Colonial Gardens in Beverly, MA."

“Colonial Gardens is my home and I love it. Everyone from management, housekeeping, the kitchen, and maintenance are the greatest. We have our own movie theatre, beauty parlor, chapel, gym, activity room, and believe me lots of activities including day trips to a lot of wonderful interesting places. It’s a community that is open to all with care and concern. I’m proud to call it my home!”
