The Ivy At Ellington DescriptionThe Ivy at Ellington is one of the latest additions to The Arbors Assisted Living Residential Communities family. Ellington was originally an agricultural community, but now it is known as a resort town because of its proximity to Crystal Lake. Our community offers 79 one and two-bedroom apartments, as well as Reflections, our specialized memory support environment. We are conveniently located at 123 West Road in Ellington, Connecticut. Our home-like environment provides residents with plenty of amenities to enjoy, like dining on local culinary favorites, participating in engaging and enriching social opportunities, and quality personal care services every day.
Assisted LivingFor seniors who need some help with everyday tasks such as getting dressed, bathing, preparing meals and managing medications, assisted living is a smart option. This facility is also able to provide care plans that are tailored to an individual's specific needs, such as addressing poor nutrition. At The Arbors, we are dedicated to providing our residents with the highest quality of life possible. We achieve this through genuine care and comfort.
Memory CareWe know how tough it is to live with dementia or Alzheimer's disease, for the sufferer and their loved ones. It’s important that everyone stays connected, to feel the connection with the world around them.
Respite CareThe purpose of a respite or trial stay is to provide caregivers with a short break while also giving their loved one a new, safe, and social environment. Our Trial Stay option gives you the chance to experience our assisted living Communities without making a commitment. If your loved one is hesitant about assisted living and isn’t sure what to expect, our trial stays can also be beneficial.
DiningWe're proud to offer three delicious homemade meals each day, with healthy options, comfort foods and resident favorites. We believe that good meals are essential for maintaining health, quality of life and happiness. We believe in serving fresh, made-to-order meals for our students. The specialties at each Arbors location are a reflection of the tastes of the people who live there. The one thing that ties all of these meals together is the love and care that went into making them. Each dish was crafted with only the freshest ingredients available, including many locally-sourced, seasonal items. This makes for a truly unique and memorable dining experience.

Care Staff Rating
Five years ago my sister moved to an assisted living facility in Florida. Over the years, she had steadily deteriorated which we thought was just a normal part of aging. Four months ago we moved her to the Ivy at Ellington. The entire staff has been outstanding in creating a plan to improve her health, decrease her pain and increase her safety and happiness. Today, when we stop in to see her, she is smiling and enjoying life once again. We could not have chosen a better facility in which to put our trust. Thank you to everyone at the Ivy for all that you do to care for those who need a little help or a lot of help.
We moved my mom into the Ivy a year ago in June.From the very beginning when My brother made the first call and I then went to the facility with my MotherTo look at the place! We were both pleasantly surprised to see how beautiful and accommodating that The Ivy was. I was so impressed with how the staff and Management was so friendly to is upon our first meeting. My mom was excited then to sell her house that she lived in by herself and to get New Furniture for her New home.With some belongings from her house and her New things she made her apt.cute and cozy..Her New home. My mom has had her ups and downs and has been through alot but I have to say a Big Thank You to all of the staff ..the nurses..the receptionist's ..and management.You ALLgo Above and Beyond and are kind and Sweet to her!I highly recommend The Ivy @Ellington...Its a good feeling to know that at the end of the day my Mother is in a safe and homelike Environment that we know she is being taken care of!!Thank You Sincerely for all your hard work!!
My husband’s Aunt Marlene is one the first residents in the memory care unit. She is very happy and we are very pleased with the accommodations and prices. The staff is well trained and caring. The receptionist, Cindy, is very warm, caring and respectful with an outgoing personality. We would recommend The Ivy to anyone looking for a special place for a loved one.
My wife and I moved into the Ivy At Ellington about 10 months ago after evaluating several assisted living facilities. She has Alzheimer's but I was allowed to move in with her at a small additional cost. The goal was to provide a safe and pleasant environment. After a few months I moved out knowing she was being cared for in the best possible ways. Everyone is friendly and caring which I attribute to this being a family owned facility rather than a large corporate operation.Our children visit regularly and we are very happy with everything here.
