My family member lived there for 5 months in the memory care unit until they told us we had 30 days or less to move him.  While he was there I saw workers not being patient or understanding of his disease.  I witnessed a caretaker snatch a walker away from another resident who was trying to walk when they wanted him to be sitting.The director Fern will promise a lot up front so they get the revenue.  In my case they over promised their ability to care for our relative's needs even though they knew up front the diagnosis and behaviors.   There are other places that charge less and provide more compassionate care.  They weren't watching when my family member ingested multiple non-edible objects and I had to take him to the emergency room.  Be careful that they have the experience, and more importantly the willingness to care for your loved ones' particular needs before you have to go through the upheaval and expense of moving in and then quickly having to find another place.  Family members who have relatives there should visit as much as possible to make sure their loved ones aren't being left unshowered etc.

They put on a good show to get people to move in...but it is not what they pretend. The aids are young and giggle...they. sit in the halls instead of helping residents.The menu sounds good ...but the dining staff is untrained. Iced tea is room temperature ..neither chilled nor iced. Soup, salad and entree are served together....and they pour coffee at the same time. they the plop down dessert.the residents say accept their lot. the thought of living here is repulsive...

I LOVE Brandywine Living on Mt Lucas rd in Princeton☺️ They have been so Great with My family/friend Eva which she used to be in the Main living area But sadly when her Husband past away almost 1 yr ago this January they immediately helped us move her to the Memory care unit which made the transition so easy and She got extra TLC .. They love the residence and worked with us all during this Pandemic. I know they are even improving the surroundings and keeping us updated daily which is so helpful! Just can’t wait to get back on a normal visiting schedule But at least I know Eva is Loved!! I Just Love Deanna. Elayne, Jose and their staff thank you Everyone ❤️

My 90 year old Dad has been at this facility for two years and we have found it to be clean, organized and well run with friendly and caring staff. The senior administration is exceptional and the daily care staff and nurses know my Dad well and are very responsive to his changing needs. Even through CO19 limitations, the groups activities are ongoing and provide just enough social stimulation. All meals are included in a lovely central dining room and the food is good! While an Assisted Living place is not as good as living with family, when that is not an option, Brandywine Princeton is a great alternative.

I had an Aunt and Uncle who spent their last days there. While they maintained their room well, there was always an odor within that I just couldn't bear and it kept me from going in.

I need to place my husband in an assisted living facility as a respite stay as I went away on business. He recently just had a knee replacement and I could not leave him alone, he needed around-the-clock care. The administrative staff went above and beyond to make sure all of my needs were answered and that my husband would be in the best hands he came in for a 4-week respite and I must say he had absolutely zero complaints, as a younger man I was a little nervous to place him in an assisted living even if it was just for a short period of stay and he absolutely had a blast, from the wide range of activities to the excellent cooking done by the chefs in the building he will definitely be returning there again for his next surgery recuperation they also mentioned to me that they have a home care which I may be needing to utilize. All the staff there were very attentive of my husband's needs, I would recommend this place to anyone.

Found Acorn Glen when my mother was diagnosed with a terminal illness and I needed to move her close to me quickly but knew I would not be able to provide the nursing care she needed on my own. They accepted her on a week's notice, gave her a comfortable and homey apartment, and looked after her medical needs; they allowed me to stay with her and to bring in the extra care she needed as her condition progressed. When my father faltered with Parkinson's disease two years later they took him into a homey apartment and allowed him to live as independently as he could while looking after his medical needs. As these changed they moved him to a new apartment where they could more closely observe him, and then once again to an apartment where they could always be close by as he needed them. When he took an acute turn they again allowed me to stay with him, and the aides and nurses cared for him with tears. My mother in law chose Acorn Glen as soon as it became apparent she needed help in case of falls and keeping up with the tasks of daily living. She managed her own medical care at all times since she was capable of that. She passed when she was ready with all her family close by in this cozy apartment near to our home. The aides and nurses that cared for her were the same ones that cared for my mother and my father, which says everything about job satisfaction and quality of care. This facility helped all three parents live with dignity and pass surrounded by love,
