    Employees of LCB Senior Living generally have positive things to say about the company.

Additionally, they have noted that the company should better communicate when trying to transfer internally and put their money where their expectations are. Lastly, employees have mentioned that the company should treat the team and residents with respect, hire experienced executive directors who know how to lead, and tell someone when they fire them.

    So, you drive through this area of construction, past a number of buildings, and you wonder to yourself "is this right, is there really a hiking trail near here?"And then, you get to the end of the parking lot, and lo and behold, there really *is* a park with hiking trails here.Selleck's Woods is a really nice little park in Darien. There are a lot of trails here to hike, packed into a pretty small space. There's a nice lake to sit and enjoy, and some small and large paths to explore. There's even some cool sections for kids to introduce them to hiking and the woods.Altogether a really enjoyable place, that I plan on visiting again soon!

    My dad moved into Sellecks Woods in March of 2019. He was greeted by both staff and other residents with open and welcoming arms. My father, at 89 years young has thrived in this new environment. As best stated by the television show Cheers, "Sometimes it's nice to go where everyone knows your name, and they're always glad you came'. Sellecks Woods has provided the "extra' that my collaborative family could not provide. Dad is now surrounded by his contemporaries, has a beyond delicious menu to choose from and his own apartment to relax in when he so chooses.

    We are so glad we chose Selleck's Woods for our parents! The residence is beautiful, clean, and peaceful. The food is outstanding - healthy, varied and consistently delicious. There are so many excellent services onsite including primary care, dental care, podiatry, PT, OT and a salon. The resident engagement team always has interesting events happening both at Selleck's Woods and also excursions off site. Most of all the staff make Selleck's Woods a warm, safe, stimulating and fun place to live. Our parents have not been this happy and stress-free in several years (and neither have we!).

    Beyond the obviously beautiful, new facility is an excellent, caring group of staff and nursing professionals. They have worked tirelessly to make my father's transition from a memory care facility on Cape Cod as easy as possible. Always cheerful and helpful, but most importantly kind, in all their interactions with us. They have really gotten to know him and make him feel welcome and appreciated. Soon my mother will join him but in the assisted living wing and we couldn't be more excited for them to be expertly taken care of given their different health needs. As an added bonus, the food is delicious!

    My mother, Rita McKenna, moved in to Selleck Woods in Darien, CT over the summer. The facility is new and gorgeous. Barbara Davis and her staff were first class in helping us through the process. It was our first time and she was wonderful, educational, and patient throughout the process. My mother is well taken care of, very active with all the programs, and adjusting very well to life at Selleck Woods. Being a new facility, it is filling up nicely with all new people to the community. We visit often and everyone is very hospitable. We highly recommend Selleck Woods. Mary Stockdale

    This place is a real gem. My mom is THRIVING and HAPPY at Selleck's Woods. The facility itself is beautiful, clean and secure. The warm and friendly staff goes above and beyond and treats every resident as if they are family. The food is delicious and the list of activities is mind-blowing. I couldn't be more thrilled this is where mom moved and I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a place for a loved one.

    From the very first, , we were favorably impressed with both the Selleck's Woods facility as well as the staff. The facility is new, very well constructed and beautifully appointed. The staff is welcoming, friendly and very professional. Our move-in went well with our positive first impressions reinforced by our early experiences. We have been very pleased with our decision to join the Selleck's Woods community.

    Moving my mom to CT from FL was stressful enough, but when we arrived, my mom was greeted at the door and the staff made her feel right at home. Since then, my mom has made lots of friends including the staff. She loves that she can eat at any time of the day an NO assigned seating! The place itself is like a hotel. New, bright, comfortable, but it's the people that work there that really make it the wonderful place it is. I highly recommend Residence at Sellecks Woods!

    My 100 year old father recently moved into The Residence at Selleck's Woods and I couldn't be happier with the move. The staff are all very warm and welcoming, always making time to chat with him and with us as family members. The other residents have been equally warm and welcoming to him. The residence is lovely. His apartment is roomy, bright and perfect for his needs. The food is excellent as well. I feel very secure that his safety and physical needs are being well assessed and taken care of. As an elderly, long term widower who has lived alone and independently for many years we were concerned about how he would react to assisted living in a senior facility, but he seems very happy at Selleck's Woods and interacts enjoyably with staff and other residents daily. This is truly a wonderful senior residence.

    My mom was one of the first residents to move into the beautiful facility in April 2019. Our family is thrilled that she is living is such a wonderful place. Not only does she have a big, bright, new apartment with huge windows, she is so well attended every day. The staff is caring and friendly and she is always made to feel welcome. The other residents are also welcoming and not cliquey. There is always someone to sit with and have a chat. I love that Barbara, the director, organizes parties that include both the residents and the staff and their families. It's great peace of mind to have nurses on hand, great cooks, and support staff who always greet my mom (and us) with a smile. And the activities director, Deb, thinks of a nice variety of fun things to do.

    I have worked at The Residence at Selleck’s Woods in Darien for 7 months. I am a Full Time Receptionist/Administrative Assistant. I truly love working with this team! I am the first person you meet when you walk thru the door. I enjoy greeting and welcoming everyone into our community. My interaction with our residents brings me so much joy. I sincerely love each of them. They are my family. We laugh and chat about what is going on in our lives. I enjoy listening to them sharing their life experiences, learning about their children, grandchildren and extended family. I am grateful and blessed to work with a wonderful team and most importantly spend my day with the residents in their home!
