My mom has been a resident at Chestnut Knoll for almost three years, first in personal care, and for the last 14 months in their memory care unit. Prior to living at Chestnut Knoll her health had declined both physically and mentally. My husband and I knew it was no longer safe for her to live independently and visited several facilities near her home in Boyertown, Pa. Since we live in Florida, a long distance from her and can visit only infrequently, it was important that we select a place in which we could be confident of the care provided. After visiting several facilities our top choice was Chestnut Knoll, and we are so happy that it became her home. The care provided has been excellent. Before moving to Chestnut Knoll she was a frequent visitor of the Emergency Department and admitted to the hospital on a regular basis. Hospital admissions have greatly declined under the care of Chestnut Knoll and her chronic illnesses appear to be well managed. The Fox Optimal Living Program has been a terrific asset for her and I believe has helped her to continue to maintain some physical capabilities, albeit more limited with her decline over time. The memory care unit does a wonderful job of engaging residents in activities that occur every 30 to 60 minutes. Mom is never in her room when we arrive to visit her, which is great! Although her dementia has progressed she is still able to enjoy art in the form of painting or working with clay. She seems happy, and the staff does an excellent job of engaging her! Chestnut Knoll has a very homey environment with caged birds and turtles in many locations, and welcoming outdoor seating areas, which are other things my mom has enjoyed. There are regular special events held in the memory care unit, most recently we attended a very nice mother’s day event which mom really enjoyed. I have found the staff to be very caring and great to work with long distance, we are in touch by phone or email often. They do a great job keeping me informed of any health issues that come up, or needs that arise that I can provide for long-distance. I feel mom is in great hands with her Chestnut Knoll family and greatly appreciate all they do!

    I cannot express how incredible Chestnut Knoll is and have recommended it many of my friends whose parents are in a similar situation. Thank you

    When my father was no longer able to live in his home due to Alzheimer's we decided to move him into a respite care facility near his house to give his wife a break from the daily care he needed. When that didn't work out we tried another facility. Over the course of 7 months we moved him to several different facilities, all of them grand Taj Mahal like places where they put more emphasis on appearance than actual care. Lots of promises and impressive architecture. None of them was able to live up to their claims when it came to dealing with the special needs of memory care residents.
    At a point when we had run out of options, we were told about Chestnut Knoll and went for a visit. To be honest, the building was not grand or opulent like so many other locations, but, when we walked through the doors we felt an immediate difference from all the fancy places. Chestnut Knoll was alive and busy with residents and family members. I knew immediately this was the place for dad.
    Dad spent about 5 years at Chestnut Knoll and during that time, I came to know many of the residents and their families and most importantly the staff. The staff at Chestnut Knoll genuinely care about their residents. They get to know you and your loved one.
    Over the years I have taken many staff members aside and told them this. It is because of the level of care they provide that we, the family, are able to sleep at night knowing our loved one is being cared for in the best way possible by people who genuinely care..
    When my fathers time finally came, it was a difficult time for us, the family. But the outpouring of love and concern from the staff and caregivers was overwhelming. We all said goodbye, family and staff, together. I am forever grateful to Chestnut Knoll and the incredible, wonderful and loving staff.

    The decision to place a family member in memory care is painful and difficult and we were filled with anxiety. Chestnut Knoll made the transition less so. We visited our mother every day and never had a moment of doubt that she was in the most loving and caring environment. The staff was so supportive and helpful to us as well as mom, even after she passed away. I still visit the staff and patients because they became part of our family. I cannot say enough about our experience and how wonderful they were to mom.

    Description of Chestnut Knoll in Boyertown, PA

    Built In 2000 , Number of Beds : 110

    Assisted living is a good solution for seniors who require a little help but desire to preserve their self-reliance. Why choose assisted living? Studies reveal that living near peers and participating in social activities leads to a more fulfilling life. With assisted living, you'll find senior-friendly living options and a dedicated staff. Communities have additional services that include 24-hour supervision and security, emergency response systems, access to licensed nursing care, chef-prepared meals, and assistance with grooming, dressing, and bathing. Housekeeping, laundry, social programs, and local transportation are usually provided, too. This community, a comprehensive independent living community, allows you to do as you wish, when you wish, but without the burdens of home ownership that can tie you down and take up your time. Serving both individuals and couples, these senior communities are also known as senior apartments, retirement villages, and communities for 55 and older. Residents stay in private apartments or individual homes with a variety of community amenities, services, and programs tailored specifically for seniors. Your personal belongings, such as furniture and favorite mementos, can move to your new home with you. With maintenance, groundskeeping, and housekeeping taken care of, seniors can focus on goals and passions instead of the daily demands of home ownership. Because independent living communities are intended for older adults who need little or no assistance, most do not offer medical care or supervision. Community services and amenities usually include fitness clubs, dining facilities, swimming pools, golf courses, hiking trails, social events, and more. The personal interests of memory care residents at Chestnut Knoll are always honored and respected. Along with the care and detailed attention they receive from specialists in Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, they are encouraged by dedicated staff to pursue the things they love, and always with a spirit of compassion, trust, and teamwork. Memory care is different from the care provided in assisted living, requiring a dedicated staff that is skilled in techniques unique to memory care. Residents live in private or semi-private residences with twenty-four-hour support. Three healthy meals a day plus snacks are provided, as well as housekeeping and laundry services. Structured activities designed specifically for memory impairment support mental stimulation. Grounds typically have secured areas, such as walking paths and gardens, for residents to enjoy. Behavioral therapies, continence care, medication management, and assistance with bathing and grooming are provided as well. Some seniors, as they age and begin to need assistance, simply do not wish to leave the place they’ve called home for many years. Sometimes they bought their dream home upon retirement. Sometimes it is the house where they raised their children and watched their families grow up. For them, the walls and floors resonate with memories. A caring, in-home staff understands this and is dedicated to making seniors as comfortable and as satisfied as they can possibly be. Services are available twenty-four-hours a day, seven days a week. Home care includes various medical and non-medical support services. When you are ready for assistance, medical and non-medical professionals are ready to help with a wide range of services. An assisted living community provides help when necessary with the goal of supplying the services required to stay as autonomous as possible. With independent living, you can do as you wish, when you wish, but without the burdens of home ownership that can take up your time. Memory care gives a more direct level of attention, brain games designed for memory enhancement, as well as secure, comfortable living arrangements. In-home care is an option for seniors when they need it. Care professionals will bring their expertise and experience to your home. This choice is perfect for those who would like to stay in their homes but who need some help with the daily activities of living. These services, available 24 hours a day, every day, are paid for by the individual or through public and private funding sources, such as Medicare and/or Medicaid.
