During the transition period we were amazed at how all the employees took the time to learn our mother’s personality traits, things she liked to do and of course things she didn’t. This made her participation socially and in activities much more enjoyable.
The staff are all so warm and friendly – from the nurses, aides, maintenance men and kitchen staff.
After moving in to Gazebo my mother couldn’t be happier! She loves it there and finds all of the staff to be outstanding. We both believe her overall health has improved greatly due to regular meds, regular meals and lots of fun activities. When she has had a couple colds, back flare ups or whatever the staff takes great care of her. My personal stress level has also been reduced knowing Mom is being cared for even when I can’t be there. I would recommend this facility to anyone with no hesitation.
After visiting several assisted living facilities, we discovered The Gazebo. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and encouraged to feel free to look around and speak with the residents. During this time we also observed the positive manner in which staff members interacted with one another. They were friendly, smiling, and respectful. The gentle manner in which they dealt with and met resident’s individual needs was, and is always, evident. We have found the perfect place for our father. Eating well-balanced meals, socializing, daily activities, and exercise has helped create a positive lifestyle for him. It made my day recently to witness dad greeting a brand new resident who was feeling apprehensive about moving from her home of many years. She expressed how nervous she was and dad immediately reassured her by saying, “Well, you’ve come to the right place!”

Resident since December 7, 2017
Dad has now resided at the Gazebo for over a year. Our family couldn’t be more pleased with the care and attention he receives every hour of every day. The facility upkeep is impressive, the staff very concerned and attentive to Dad’s every need.
The Gazebo’s 24/7 nursing team is very reassuring with professional care immediate when summoned. Dad’s required off-site doctor’s appointments are scheduled for him with transportation to and from the appointments provided. All his prescription needs are accurately ordered and administered by the Gazebo staff.
Dad enjoys a choice of freshly prepared meals 3 times daily and the kitchen team is always ready to put another setting at the table for visiting family members!
Dad has made many friends enjoying the daily events, physical fitness classes, comradery and weekly organized road trips.
Thanks to the Gazebo staff, our family is comforted knowing Dad is enjoying his elder senior years.
My husband and I spent weeks looking at different assistive listing facilities in the Burlington area. I was getting very discouraged until I visited Gazebo North. The first time I walked in the door I got the sense of family.
"..It's an emotional time to transition into assisted living. However, we are so happy to have (mom) with all of you. I believe she is also pleasantly surprised at how her first few weeks have gone. It's clear that no one wears just one hat, and all staff whom we have had an opportunity to meet (from nursing, cleaning, maintenance, kitchen, and everyone in between and beyond!) work together to make life for the residents easier and make all feel welcome. Always positive."
I can’t thank you enough for giving our family peace of mind during her stay. We will always have fond memories of the Gazebo family.
Our dear mother passed away recently at the age of 101. She lived in Gazebo Senior Living for 18 wonderful years. She initially was there because her husband needed more care than she could provide. After he passed away she could have easily lived with family. But she said, “this is my home now, I’m happy here and I don’t plan on going anywhere.” She was so loved, so well taken care of in every way. Her family will be forever grateful to the warm, loving and capable staff at Gazebo Senior Living.
We can't say enough about the positive experience we had at the Gazebo. My father was a very independent man for 86 years of his life, then he had an accident that did not make it safe for him to live independently anymore. It was an adjustment at first, he was withdrawn and sad that he had to leave his home (which is understandable), however, in a short period of time the staff made him feel at home and the Gazebo quickly became his new home. The staff learned about his interests and how he loved to play games and go for walks, soon they had him involved in many activities and he was becoming his old self again. The Activity Coordinator would always make sure that he was aware of the options of that days' activities and even assisted him with bingo when he could no longer see the cards clearly and was unable to pick up or place the chips on the cards. As his needs increased, their compassion and care increased with him as well. It was hard for him to still be cognitively intact but his body was no longer cooperating, needing more and more help with just daily self care that we often take for granted. When my dad took a turn for the worse, the staff were so supportive and helped us through this difficult last stage of his life. When he passed we all mourned in the loss because he wasn't just our dad but he also became a part of the Gazebo family as well as the Gazebo staff becoming part of our family.
