“My answering machine says “This is Peter E., this is the place to be” and so on. I was in 2 other Independent living homes and this Keystone Commons TOPS them and way ahead too!! I would not like or care to be anywhere else and my next stop will be the Veteran’s Cemetery in Agawam. The employees here are all SUPER from top to bottom and that chef Ron does a great job. Again I say I’m glad to be here”.

“Hello, my name is Rosemary. I was ill physically and my children wanted me to retire in Ludlow to be closer to them. Keystone has healed me in so many ways. There is so much to do including trips, bingo, a wonderful dining room (etc.). Frankly I love Keystone so much that I hate to go on vacation. I am the happiest person I’ve ever been.”

“When my husband & I realized that his parents could not live by themselves anymore we had to look around for some care for them. We looked into many places but decided that we would move them in Assisted Living at Keystone Commons. The atmosphere was extraordinary and the people were very helpful and kind. They moved into the Assisted Living area but after a few weeks we knew that they needed something more. We moved them into “The Cottage” where they would get more care. The services in “The Cottage” (memory care unit) are excellent and are suited to their needs. Two months after they moved in “The Cottage” my father-in-law passed away. After that my mother-in-law seemed to require more attention and the girls seemed to know that and were especially attentive to her. Every one of the girls are caring and kind. I can’t say enough about “Keystone Commons”. They have lessened our burden and have given us piece of mind. We know my mother-in-law is well taken care of. We are glad that we picked Keystone as her final home.” Janice Wells

You should see the look of astonishment on the faces of our friends who visit us at Keystone Commons for the first time. Unlike their expectations, there is nothing institutional about living here at all. Instead, there are gracious interior spaces throughout the building, art lining the beautifully carpeted hallways, and a spectacular dining room that looks like the interior of an elegant home. Our apartment is one of the two-bedroom units with every bit as much function and almost as much space as our first house, including two large bedrooms, each with a handicap-accessible bathroom and ample closet space, a full kitchen with pantry, a washer and dryer, and a huge living room and a sunroom perfect for our big table where we do our puzzles, read, and write. We love to go out on the deck and enjoy the breezes while we look out over the beautiful tree-lined fields of the well-kept home across the way. We explored the buy-in versus rental approach to senior living options, and the market-rate rental approach of Keystone Commons made SO much more sense to us. And to my brother and his wife who are now rethinking their options as a result of a visit to see us. Living here can be anything you want it to be. I am just as active in volunteer affairs as I ever was, as are many others. Some are still working part-time. But there is no end of activities going on both inside and outside Keystone Commons every week of the year. A van takes those who sign up to all kinds of events, including concerts, public affairs, fishing, lunches at favorite haunts, trips to interesting places, swimming and the more routine things like shopping, church services, and visits to doctors. The weekly calendar includes daily events in the activity room and game room: music, sing-alongs, crafts, games, games and more games (including billiards, and an outdoor shuffleboard and a putting green), exercise sessions both in the activity room and in the awesome fitness facility, frequent movies with theater seating, and casual get-togethers in the pub. There are health-related services and religious activities for those who choose to participate, and even a full-service beauty salon. Perhaps the best thing about Keystone Commons is the laughter. People enjoy living here, enjoy getting together with each other, enjoy the activities, and enjoy having someone else take care of the cooking, cleaning, and lawn work! For us, coming here was definitely the right thing at the right time. Julie Peck
