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!
“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.”

“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.”

“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…”

“I moved here from out of state, and after looking at a number of options, my family helped me choose Kensington Park Retirement Community. Its endemic setting is unique: birds everywhere and occasional rabbits, residents with dogs and cats, winding paths and walkways with exquisite flowers and landscaping.
Most importantly is the truly compassionate care that is the hallmark of Kensington Park. Every staff member shows a great deal of respect for the residents. No need goes unattended. I wouldn’t want to be anyplace else.“
-C. Layton, Resident
“I find Kensington Park to have a generally very pleasant atmosphere. We had a lot of confidence in the place because of recommendations made to us by a geriatric social worker, and those have held up in actual experience. Mom’s adjustment has been excellent, and they always try to accommodate the needs of the family. The executive director Mary Mell has an excellent reputation in the field, and our experience working with the staff in all areas has been fantastic.”
-Joanne S., Daughter of Resident
“Recently when visiting my mom I have observed several of the care staff helping her, from taking her to the restroom, assisting her with walking, helping her out of bed and out of her recliner, bringing her meals, putting in her hearing aids and administering her medications. They are extremely patient, kind and always cheerful in carrying out their work.
…It is very reassuring to know my mom is being so well cared for by a such a wonderful group of people. Thank you for all your dedication and hard work.”
