What a wonderful community of residents! My parents have loved their time at Harbor Chase of Wilmington and feel so well cared for by all of the staff - from the resident care team to the concierge to the dining staff, they have all been so wonderful and caring. We can't recommend Harbor Chase enough and know they will be happy there for many years!

When I was looking for a place for dad I visited several local facilities and was unimpressed until I was driving down Shipley one day and pulled in Harbor Chase. I walked in and just observed. I observed the staff interacting with the residents in the kindest way. I talked to residents while I waited for the Sales Director Jamie to squeeze me in. The residents I spoke to are quite happy there. The facility is clean, and on the tour the staff was so friendly. I picked out dads room that day and since then we are quite impressed with the level of care and events that are held all during Covid. Kudos to them.

HarborChase is a community that has been a benefit to me. It’s newer and clean. They have a variety of food choices (as well as activities). Breakfast is my favorite meal! The staff is attentive and very friendly. HarborChase is a senior living community for you to consider when ready!

We used to love Harbor Chase but some of the nursing care has changed and there is no compassion for residents when they need it the most. Very difficult living there now if you have any medical issues, and residents are forced to go to Skilled Nursing Facilities after short hospital stays even when it is specifically deemed inappropriate to go to SNF by the hospital doctors. Then the stay at SNF is forced arbitrarily by Harbor Chase for many, many weeks even though the resident has remained medically stable since discharge from the hospital causing much distress to resident and family. This has made it very uncomfortable to live at Harbor Chase. Harbor Chase should be your happy place/home and it is not. I would not recommend Harbor Chase of Wilmington for this reason.

I have had the pleasure of visiting with staff and residents of Harbor Chase Wilmington on several occasions. Their level of professionalism is unmatched. Their attention to the resident’s needs is without equal. After meeting many of the staff I was very impressed with their warmth, dedication and mostly their commitment. Many of them have extensive backgrounds in the field. Every person I spoke to was very proud to be employed by this company. The resident that I was there to visit had me meet her during dinner. The food! I felt as if we were in a fine dining establishment. The servers knew every resident by name. I even saw one server sit with a resident that was dining alone, and he seemed to need a little assistance eating. It was wonderful to see. I knew right then my friend was safe and well cared for at Harbor Chase. Kudos to all staff! It’s plain to see ‘above and beyond’ is your motto. Keep up the great work!

Absolutely LOVE Harbor Chase. I can't say enough about the staff and how caring they are. There are several that go above and beyond what they need to do. My mom has been there for about 1.5 years and wouldn't change it. Even with a Covid outbreak in one unit, their diligence kept it contained and possibly saved lives. When I call I always end up talking with a nurse. Ocean to Sky's review below has some things that are not true. There are nurses around the clock. There is little turnover. Most of the staff I have worked with have been there since we have been there. Sounds more like a disgruntled employee than a true review. Seems odd that the same person reviewed two other communities within three months. A tour would not know about certain managers that have left and when. Outside HC professionals are the physical and occupational therapists, doctors and hospice. All needed personal. Not sure how this person would know this since no family is allowed in to see who has a mask and face shield on. While I can't see my mom, I know she is being cared for.

We used to love the care our mom was getting but something has changed. Several of the upper level management have recently left. The care seems to be slipping.
