Independent living - seniors enjoying Scott-Farrar

“I’ve lived in Peterborough for 25 years and love this town. Moving into a retirement community was something I saw in my future, especially after my husband died. While it is a major decision, I’m happy I’ve chosen Scott-Farrar with its long history of caring for seniors and the beautiful new community they are building in downtown. I’ve looked at other communities throughout the state, but I don’t want to leave everything I hold dear like my friends, swimming at the Wellness Center, my church and everything that is so familiar and comforting.”

“My first impression of Scott Farrar was that of a gracious environment. The décor is tasteful and comfortable with flowers everywhere. The staff is friendly and helpful and I found the nurses and aides particularly caring.

The residents look well and are busy, going about their own lives. Part of their contentment comes from the delicious and healthy cuisine: soup or salad for appetizers, choice of main entrees and desserts.  Meals become highlights of the day when the food is good and the company engaging.

Various cultural activities complete the picture of an interesting place to live.”

“The staff here are so professional, personable and friendly. They are responsive and quick to help me out with whatever I need. I felt so welcomed by them when I moved in. My room is so bright and cheery; it feels like home. I feel like I hit the jackpot when I moved to Scott-Farrar. ” Charlene Hassinger

“Moving our 90 year old mom from Florida to Peterborough was a complicated affair. The staff in every department at Scott-Farrar could not have been more helpful each step of the way. They all went out of their way to make the transition a smooth and easy one.” Jim Hassinger and Christine Mann

“I’m thrilled about the new Scott-Farrar community which continues its long and rich history of offering seniors exceptional and personalized care. Over the years, I’ve been intimately involved with Scott-Farrar as a nurse, Board member, and the daughter of a former resident. When my dad was living, he was their Number One cheerleader, and I’m pleased to say that Phil and I are on the priority wait list for the new community and will someday proudly call Scott-Farrar our new home.”

“Mom and our family are so very grateful for the entire Scott-Farrar family. Dad and Mom decided to move to Scott-Farrar from their home in Connecticut where they had strong roots in their community, not an easy transition. Thanks to the warm welcome from fellow residents and Scott-Farrar’s incredible staff, Mom and Dad felt very supported and loved. We love having Mom close by and we know she is getting the very best care at Scott-Farrar.”

“When our mother, Mary-Ellen’s memory began to worsen we searched for a community that would embrace and appreciate the wonderful person she is while providing a safe, respectful and engaging home. In May she moved into Scott–Farrar’s Memory Care Neighborhood. From our first meeting with Suzanne, who thoughtfully listened to our concerns, to the daily care she receives, we can sleep well at night knowing that our Mom is at home in the loving care of Scott-Farrar staff. We attribute her happiness to the fantastic, caring staff at Scott-Farrar. They are always looking for new and exciting ways to keep the residents engaged. From our observations, that daily engagement brings a better quality of life to our Mom. It was also important that our Mom have a secure outdoor space that she could enjoy any time. We found that at Scott-Farrar. Our hearts are happy and we thank Scott-Farrar for being there for not only Mom but for our family, as we’ve made this transition.”
