The residents are the ones who are providing our paychecks, and we want to take care of them with kindness and care. We run this building as if it was our own parents or family members who were our residents. We also strive to bring in great food and activities.

Connecticut’s Top Rated Local® Senior Living Communities Award Winner: Middlewoods Of Farmington

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Middlewoods Of Farmington is an award winner for senior living communities in 2019.

If you are looking for a compassionate and excellent senior‌ ‌living community in Hartford, look no further than this award-winning company!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“My mother recently decided to do a 60-day trial. It took a full year for her to make that decision, and two days into her ‘trial,’ she doesn’t want to go back home!! The entire staff, and I truly mean everyone, has gone above and beyond to make the transition pleasant and easy. Middlewoods is a safe, clean, and caring facility, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.” – L.B.

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Middlewoods Of Farmington is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!

Not Your Average Senior Living Community

We were excited to learn all about Middlewoods Of Farmington and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the Director of Community Relations, Ginny Brown.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Middlewoods Of Farmington stand apart from its competitors. Ginny said that the non-profit part of their job is a big piece of what they do. They focus on helping people find what’s right for them, even if that means they help them look somewhere else.

Ginny also told us about how having the right staff makes a difference:

“Happy staff makes happy residents. We have a lot of staff longevity; we have people that have been here 10+ years.”

Ginny spoke about the importance of giving back to the community, starting with their residents and extending out from there. She said:

“We think it’s very important to make people feel like this is not their last chapter. We encourage that they have so much more to give, so we get people involved and give them purpose. We also do a lot of outreach in the outside community.”

She also shared the Middlewoods Of Farmington business mission:

“Our mission is to provide a continuum of services that supports health, independence, and dignity. We build this continuum on the belief that a relationship-centered philosophy best sustains body, mind, and spirit.”

Building Success And Community

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Middlewoods Of Farmington has spread the word about who they are and what they do by hosting community events, like luaus, identity theft seminars for seniors, and by sharing their space with neighbors.

Ginny told us about how it can be scary for people to make this transition, so she extends the invitation to do a trial run, which is something not all communities offer. She told us:

“Something I like to do for people is to offer people a trial stay option. It’s hard to move from home and start living with 70 people. I tell people to ask about our trial stay option, which is something that sets us apart from other communities.”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Middlewoods Of Farmington has managed to. We asked if Ginny could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“Be consistent, do the right thing, and always put the customers first. Listen, and follow-through.”

Not Your Average Senior Living Community

We wanted to know what makes Pennsylvania’s number one senior living community so special, so we took a few minutes to talk with the Executive Director, Brian Grundusky.

The first question we had for Brian was what makes Bethany Village unique compared to their competition in Pennsylvania. Here’s what he had to say:

“As a continuing care retirement community, we provide a framework for anticipating the need for more care as you age, for active, engaged aging. Residents really drive their own lives here, but they benefit from wellness lifestyle and programs here and the support services that are on site. And, we’re fun! We have annual snow tubing and water tubing trips. We have water volleyball and mini-golf teams. And behind all that is a continuum of health services that come into play if you need home care, assisted living, or nursing care. Bethany Village also provides benevolent care for those who outlive their resources through no fault of their own. We do everything we can to make sure that the people who choose to live here feel secure about the future.”

We also asked Brian about Bethany Village’s mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Brian told us:

“Our mission is to do all the good we can by providing exceptional lifestyle opportunities to those that we serve, and our vision is to redefine the expectations of aging. We strive to carry these beyond Bethany Village, too. One of our strategic and operational goals is to be a great neighbor to our community. We have a social accountability program here and support many local community service organizations through fundraisers, volunteerism and by sharing our space with them. Every year, associates and residents come together for our annual Rock-a-Thon to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association. That’s one of many examples. In 2018, Bethany Village served more than 5,000 people in the region through our social accountability efforts.”

Brian went on to say:

“We’ve been here over 54 years, and we’re expanding. We’re a mission-based community, and we try to provide the best care to our residents at all times.”

Building Success With a History of Providing Great Service

When we asked Brian what their secret is to such a strong online reputation at Bethany Village, he said:

“All of our reviews are completed first-hand from our residents and their families based upon their experiences here at Bethany Village. We have a 50-year history of great service and strong relationships that develop between the residents who join our retirement community, our employees and the family members who know that their parents will be well cared for as they continue to age. We encourage ongoing collaboration and feedback between residents, staff, family members and our leadership. Our online reviews reflect these factors.”

Apart from building the kind of online reputation any business would envy, Bethany Village has spread the word about their service by sharing their great stories with local media and through word of mouth from their residents. Brian told us that they have an internal marketing team on-site, consisting of six associates whose focus is on marketing, and they also get support from the marketing department at Asbury Communities.

Every business owner wants to grow their business and build their online reputation the way Bethany Village has. Here’s Brian’s advice for them:

“Be able to show that you are living your mission, and work with your customers to ensure that you are meeting their needs in a consistent and efficient manner. We work hard to be responsive to questions and concerns, and work with our customers on an individual basis. If the people you serve trust that you will deliver what you say you will and you listen to and adapt to their feedback, your reputation will follow. As the baby-boomer generation continues to need our services, our ability to be flexible and meet their different needs will be critical for our continued success.”


Congratulations to the team at Bethany Village for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Brian, for taking the time to speak with us!
