The Cottages of Perry Hall in Parkville, MD
4.9

My wife needed professional assisted memory care because of advanced dementia. We were very lucky to find "The Cottages of Perry Hall" The home like atmosphere made the transfer very comfortable and easy for the patient to adapt to these new suroundings. The loving care given by the health staff was increditable. This experience gave our family comfort knowing the she was happy and was receiving the care she needed.

Divine Care Assisted Living Inc in Baltimore, MD
4.3

The facility ca be described as a detached home that has been very tastefully refurbished and decorated. My family and I were impressed with the cleanliness, the furniture (brand new) and it has all of the up to date amenities. Mr. Benjamin has been very kind, respectful and patient with my family and my brother Melvin. His assistants have all followed his example. I have access to my brother with just a telephone call and I have been allowed on several weekends to bring him home with me for a day. The staff is very conscientious in giving my brother his medications and taking care of his other needs. They are extremely polite and patient with my brother. He's stated on more than one occasion that he's being treated very well. I hope my brother continues to enjoy his stay at Divine Care and I would not hesitate to recommend this facility to anyone.
