Please take a moment to read through some of the lovely messages we’ve received from our residents and their families. We are very proud to have earned such glowing remarks!
“Our 90 year old mother moved into the Kensington Park Senior Living-Groves 1 year ago. We have been so grateful for her care during the pandemic, an impossibly difficult time. The leadership transparency and clear love of our family shone through at every turn. Our mother is happy to have friends and people that. help her out. The staff we communicate with show true heart and professionalism. When we call they are there, pleasant and always responsive. We appreciate each and every one of the staff and know that our mother lives in a very special place.”

“My Mom was a resident for the past 3 years at Kensington Park. She loved every minute of her new residence because it was her home. The staff could not have been more caring and loving. They treated her as they would have treated their own mother. All of the folks there ended up being like a family to me as well. The facility has lots of activities, transportation to local places/ doctor stores etc. Mom met many new friends, and enjoyed her life as a resident. But The most important reason for remaining at Kensington Park was without doubt all of the caring people that work there. It isn’t a huge institution, it’s just like home.”

“On behalf of Miss T.’s family, we thank you for everything. You have no weak links rather a caring team that works together to make everyone’s lives a lot better.”

“My mom has lived in the assisted living segment of Kensington Park for a few years and we could not be happier. She did not make the move happily, but everyone–from the director to her dining room waiter–went above and beyond to make her feel welcome, comfortable, and at home, and she is now content and active and enjoying her life again.
Lots of the places we toured treat residents a bit like children, with crayons and glitter. Kensington Park recognizes that their residents are still adults who just need help, and activities and features are planned accordingly. Lectures, discussions, games, classes, clubs, outings and activities, music performances, movie nights, and daily happy hour (the highlight of every afternoon!) are all very much designed for adults who want to feel mentally stimulated and still contributing members of their communities.
Every day is a busy day, every encounter is warm and compassionate without being overbearing, communication with our family has been top-notch, and medical care is outstanding. Care is for the whole family–they want to know how I am as much as how my mom is and there is a very strong support network here for loved ones. Holidays and special occasions bring restaurant-quality lunches and dinners for the whole family, and everyone is always welcome. They say the coffee is always on and they mean it, literally and figuratively. Kensington Park is a dream come true for our family and we are beyond grateful.”
-Kim F., Daughter of Resident
“I have peace of mind with Kensington Park. They provide security for my mom, whom was reluctant to move, but now she says, and I quote ‘having a blast.’ She feels like she is on vacation. I can’t feel more secure and happy about where my mother is living, and I know that she is in a safe place. It’s the quality and care that she deserves.”
-Debbie M., Daughter of Resident
“Thank you for making our family visit so comfortable and pleasant. We had a wonderful time, and the delicious cake was above and beyond. Thank you for making Mike so happy and for taking such good care of him. He loves living at KP and that brings us all wonderful peace of mind.”

“A totally positive, life-changing experience! At the recommendation of our social worker, I talked to people at Kensington Park. I could not believe how helpful and kind they were — not only to my mother, but also to me. She has been with them for six months now, and the improvement has been amazing. She’s like a new person. Kensington implements a concept that I think is brilliant. They try to make sure the residents have as much human contact as possible. They really understand something that a lot of people in the assisted living industry do not understand. They really know how to talk to people with dementia, and I could not be more thankful for that.”
-Paul L., Son of Resident
“For the last three years you have cared for my mother as if she were a member of your own family. This should be no surprise to me. I have always understood that such a community of people, both those in need and those providing their care, IS a family, and why should Kensington Park be any different?
But there is something more I am trying to express. My mother’s late life was very difficult from her. I’m not sure she ever really transitioned, from her husbands death in 2013, to moving from her lifelong home in Georgia to Maryland, to accepting (sort of) her increasing limitations and need for help…these are but the last chapters in a long story which seemed to accelerate and become more and more condensed and confusing to her over the last few years.
As I consider your part in that story, I am made aware of how gracefully and professionally you helped her to navigate her changes. More than that, in the face of all her doubts and fears you treated her with dignity, kindness, respect, and not least LOVE. And when she needed it most – in this last year, when all else began to fail her – you were steadfast in your care and did not falter; and she recognized this, and she embraced you all. I could not possibly ask for anything more.”
-David M., Son of Resident
“Kensington Park retirement community has not only had a positive impact on my mothers life, but on mine as well. Moving my mother from an independent living situation in New Jersey to an assisted living one at Kensington Park in Maryland was a big step, but the entire staff at Kensington Park made the transition a seamless one. From the moment we arrived in the driveway, my mother was made to feel welcomed and safe as she was introduced to a new, friendly living environment. Her daily life has greatly improved, as the level of care that she is now receiving at Kensington Park is superb.
I no longer worry about my mother socially or medically. She is successfully encouraged to participate in appropriate activities and she is enjoying them.
The quality and care provided by the nursing staff is amazing; most of her medical needs are met on site. My mother is not just living at Kensington Park, she is thriving. And me, I get to sleep at night…”
-Sherry G., Daughter of Resident
“My mom lived at Kensington Park in the Groves building (memory care), I couldn’t have been happier with the care and support she received while she lived there. Not only did the amazing team take care of mom, but they were always there to support the family also. They are the most compassionate, caring group of people I have known.”
-Sandy M., Daughter Resident
“My family is so thankful that my father, who has dementia, lives at Kensington Park. Their staff, facilities, and offerings are top notch. They not only create a terrific environment for the residents, they provide wonderful support to families. Highly recommend for anyone looking for independent living, assisted living, or memory care.”
