The walking paths throughout the area are designed to lead back to the community, so that no one ever feels lost. In addition to the relaxing walking paths, gazebos, and outdoor patio, residents and their families can also enjoy our free-range chickens and raised gardens, where they can plant and maintain herbs and vegetables.

Meadow Mills is located 2.6 miles from New Haven, a small city with a population of 130,322. Other nearby cities and towns include Hamden, North Haven, Woodbridge and West Haven.

I have only good things to say about our experience at Meadow Mills. The place is spotless. The staff is very kind and friendly. The sense of community and daily activities have been excellent for my Mom. She is happy and I sleep better knowing she is there.

This place is beautiful & clean, does not resemble a nursing home at all! 99% of the staff is great although I do see some aides sitting doing nothing when they should b socializing n tending to the patients, that's my only complaint. I have full confidence that my mom is well taking care of n love they're activities and get togethers. Thank you for àll u do for my mom even though at times she can b very difficult! Thank you all! ❤

You don't bring someone here that you love if you want them to be cared for properly. A lot if inexperienced aides that don't know what they are doing. Trying to. Get my brother out... I need to comment further that my brother required more skilled nursing and that is why I felt he was not taken care of properly. The surroundings are clean and and decorated attractively and staff for the most part and friendly and caring. You just need to do more research on what you need . Did not mean to downgrade the community.. it just isn't what we need.
