We just moved my mother in a few weeks ago. Patricia Peterson was amazing to work with and very helpful explaining how the whole process would work etc.

My mother loves her new home and says the food is delicious and everyone is very welcoming and friendly!

The entire family could not be more happy with staff at the Gables of Fitchburg. The building and grounds are also very well taken care of.

The staff is their greatest asset at the Gables. Each department has top notch individuals who know what they are doing. They are very responsive and get things done to help you without long waits or call backs. They are friendly and work hard to make your stay a comfortable and fulfilling one.

The premises are kept clean and safe. The food is very good and the dining room offers a good variety of foods and drinks at each meal. They also have a nice Cafe you can visit for coffee and desserts/sweets all through the day.

We chose the extra large 1 bedroom apartment which is roomy with 1 and 1/2 baths, a den, living room, bedroom and a nice full sized kitchen. There is also a large beautiful balcony overlooking Coolidge park. We love it!

After checking around at other places, The Gables had the best value by far for the money and is a smaller facility with more of a family feel than corporate feel. It is worth checking out!

This place is THE BEST!!!! My 89 year old mother needed to be in an Assisted Living environment. She was living independently until last November in NY, when she fell and fractured her hip. We realized that she could no longer live alone. We found the Gables and Mom hasn’t looked back!!!! It is privately owned so you don’t get the “chain” feel of service. The community is the perfect size where it is not overwhelmingly too large. It is beautifully maintained. The people, from the very first contact you make, are amazing and so very helpful and accommodating. Mom’s apartment is incredibly spacious, her kitchen is quite large and she has this unbelievable balcony that she just loves. There was a welcome size on her door when she moved in. The staff is just incredible. They are so genuinely kind and always so very helpful. After 1 week there, my mother felt at home, safe and comfortable. She did not feel any apprehension at all. WHAT A RELIEF! The apartment is well cleaned for her once a week. She goes to the dining room for her 3 meals a day. (She has decided that the kitchen is quite nice, but her cooking days are over.) She talks about how they truly cater to her dietary needs, and how the chef comes out to say hello. The staff took the time to introduce her to other residents on day 1. The activity and entertainment calendar always has something she is interested in. Someone checks in on her daily a few times throughout the course of the day to see if she needs any assistance with anything. She joked that the garbage can never gets full before it’s emptied. Her bed is made for her everyday. Her linens are laundered once a week. Thanks to the Gables, mom isn’t just sitting all day watching tv or reading, she has things to do and people to see…. literally! She looks forward to going to the dining room and socializing with other residents. She looks forward to the activities that she chooses to participate in…. movie nights, the BIG crossword puzzle, musical entertainment on the patio, the chair exercise class, etc. Finding the Gables was truly a blessing for our family and most especially for our mother.

After an unfortunate accident, our Mom could no longer live alone. She has lived in Fitchburg all of her life. Our family chose the Gables because of its location and accommodations. Mom’s apartment is roomy, overlooks a park and it bright and cheery.

Transition from independent living to assisted living was a challenge for Mom as she was reluctant to give up her independence. We found that the staff at the Gables supported the transition including coordinating with the skilled nursing facility she was released from and providing all the information we needed as a family to make the move as smooth as possible. Covid restrictions made this even more of a challenge! The Gables was flexible and gave us the time needed to set up the apartment and ensure that Mom was comfortable from day one. The maintenance staff even helped with hanging a heavy mirror and installing a handicap commode.

When needed we had access to the administration and Nursing management to help us navigate the options for medication support and to understand the assessment of Mom’s physical needs. The staff was professional and patient when encouraging Mom to have meals in the dinning room and to participate in other activities offered for socialization. Since moving to the Gables Mom is gaining strength and showing continual improvement.

We are grateful for all the Gables does to keep Mom safe and well cared for. Thank you!

Though I have lived in Fitchburg all my life, I have never had any reason to consider the Gables until recently when my Dad moved back here from Florida. A Studio Room became available and we snatched it up, and we are glad we did. The staff has been so accommodating and go above and beyond to ensure that my Dad is comfortable and cared for…even during Covid19! They are caring and compassionate, no matter the situation or time of day. If I call for any reason, they are always willing to help. They even installed a handicap toilet for him. The place is well kept and improvements seem to be ongoing. In light of Covid, they even installed a new sun room where residents can visit with their loved ones through the glass. A gem, right here in Fitchburg.

My wife and I chose The Gables of Fitchburg as her mom’s new residence, and the peace of mind we felt hit us from the first moment she moved in. She has a studio apartment, which actually has more room than the apartment she was in at another assisted living facility, yet at half the cost! The staff and care givers are extremely friendly, knowledgeable, caring and make mom feel like family. As for the complex itself, I don’t know any other way to better explain this but to say that, you feel like you’re in a 5-star hotel, with a gorgeous lobby and amazing dining areas; yet when you walk the halls and enter the apartment, you feel like you’re home. It doesn’t feel clinical or sterile. You feel at home! There’s plenty of activities to be had, and beautiful libraries and activity rooms. What also struck me is, you know the staff is everywhere, looking after the residents, but it doesn’t feel invasive with that typical medical facility-like hustle and bustle you see in other assisted living facilities. I think a lot of this is because, it’s not a big-business-like National chain… it’s private owned. The administration staff also feel like family…like friends. My only regret is not finding them sooner, as my mom in law’s estate would have gone a lot farther in her being able to stay there longer, but the truly important thing to my wife and I is that she’s a resident now, and we know she’s in fantastic hands! My honest opinion is, this should be the first place you look, and you’ll easily see you’ve found the right place.

My wife’s parents are both there and love the place. The GABLES provides “house-like” space while also offering various levels of Assistance as may be needed. The applianced galley kitchen with a full size refrigerator is GREAT.

The staff has been fabulous. They are friendly, courteous, and very attentive. The food is very good.

During these Covid times, the GABLES has been very protective of their residents. We feel comfortable and confident with them there!
