I spend quite a bit of time here...
I spend quite a bit of time on this campus visiting people. I'm always impressed by the friendly vibe and comfortable environment. It feels like the culture is good. I know that there was new ownership in mid-2023 and I like the improvements and upgrades they are starting to implement.

Compassionate Care and Beautiful Apartments!
Having visited numerous assisted living communities, Peoples stands out consistently due to the heartfelt compassion exhibited by its staff toward every resident. This community defines family and friendship. Moreover, since the community has come under new local ownership, the changes have been nothing short of remarkable. The recent renovations reflect the love and passion invested in the care of each person. The upgrades not only enhance the physical spaces but also contribute to the overall well-being and comfort of the residents. The activities are incredible! [name removed] does a phenomenal job planning engaging activities whether it's bingo, manicure day, or live entertainment almost weekly. It is truly wonderful to see such dedication to continuous improvements in a place that already exudes warmth and care.

Financial team needs improvement!
Though my loved one had just a short stay at Peoples Retirement Community, everything went just fine! We have no complaints in that aspect of her stay. Our primary concern, however, is the fact that our funding fell through when the financial office reassured us that it would not.

A terrible experience!
We had a horrible experience after moving my father into this community. After he moved out, a lady called and said she needs billing address to send the bill because someone needs to pay for this. My mom asked how much it was going to cost and she said: "I'm not calling to discuss the bill amount, I need the address to send the bill to". I spoke up and asked her to answer mom and she said "Your daughter isn't right, I'll call back when she isn't there" and hung up. She then tried to sell an Assisted Living room to mom and told her that I wasn't welcome in the building. In the room, there were dirty clothes on dresser and floor for two days that weren't my father's. They told my mom that she needed to buy a new bed, then said they would get one from storage.

They owe us our deposit back because thy did not live up to what degree of care they tould us he would have. I saved his life from them.
My father lived at Peoples place for about one week. He was in the memory care unit. He took a shower by himself one night and fell two times in the tub. He managed to drag himself through two doors to the hallway where an employee found him on the floor. They called to say he bumped his head and was being monitored for blood pressure for twenty four hours because that was all the responsibility they were required to provide by law. I went to see him. He asked me to take him to urgent care because he was in so much pain and they were not addressing it. I took him to the emergency room at Tacoma General hospital. Soon the hospital social service rep. approached me with her concern that if I did not file a report they would do this to someone else. His entire right side was black and blue by his injury. They did not tell me because the nurse did not check him for his injury. They said that was all they were required to do. He had seven broken ribs and his right lung was coalapsed. he spent about one month in the hospital. If [removed]. We paid for the time he was there and they also kept the nonrefundable deposit of $1500.00. How can they treat people this way? The last time I wrote a review it was not here when I came back to read it.

My Mom loves it here
I have been reading some of these comments and am really surprised to read some of the negative reviews. My Mom has lived at Peoples Retirement Community for over 2 years and she just loves it there. The food is excellent. The caregivers are amazing and heartfelt and she goes to exercise class each morning. I would reccommend Peoples to anyone looking for senior living.

Pass on this location.....
My mom lived here for 10 months. The only perk was the size of her apartment. She hated the food, activities are limited, and many issues with care. I called and had to come in many times to talk to nurses about my mother's care. It seemed like they could never get it right. The place smells and needs updating. Try to avoid this place for your loved one. My mom has moved and she loves where she is now,

They Have Been Good
The Peoples Retirement Community has been very good. They could communicate a little bit better though. She ended up in the hospital and they didn't call us until the next day, so I was a little upset about that. She does seem happy there.

good, but not as good as advertised
Their advertisements can be a little misleading. For example, they made it sound like 24/7 transportation would be available, which is not the case, and that was one of the reasons we initially selected them. The food seems to be very good. A few other things are kind of hit or miss. She is happy there overall though and planning on staying, but it definitely sounded better than what it actually ended up being.

So far it is going pretty good. I haven't had any complaints. It seems to be clean, everyone is nice to me when I visit. He doesn't complain about anything. I don't think he joins in much for activities, but I haven't heard any complaints about the food so that part must be good.

A Place for Mom has scored Peoples Retirement Community 8.5 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
