The experience has been wonderful. They're very caring. The caregivers are excellent. They really connect with the residents. I have everything wonderful to say. Except I just found out they don't take Medicaid. And if my father outlives his money, that's going to be a struggle. And that makes me feel sad thinking about moving him eventually. But the place itself is excellent.
We chose Peregrine Senior Living at Colonie because of the location and it was a very nice facility, it really impressed me. The room sizes here are not bad, but they could be a little bit bigger. The bathrooms are huge, but the bedrooms are on the small side. Overall, I would recommend it.
The community for the most part was clean, however there were some instances where we noticed a distinct odor. All the staff were all very polite and respectful. Generally, our mom is treated with respect and they do a good job keeping up with her hygiene. During the Covid-19 pandemic, they have done a good job making sure we are still able to talk with her on the phone and through video conferencing. She seems happy and well cared for, overall. Sometimes it can be difficult to coordinate communication between the in-house physician outside doctors.
My parent is in Peregrine and has been for about a year. This place seemed great at first but is rapidly going downhill. The Director is very mean (to her employees also from what I hear) and really doesn't KNOW the residents. There is a new nurse that seems very abrasive and hard to understand. The place is a revolving door for employees. The last review I can find is about 14 months old. If I were you.....I would keep looking and GOOD LUCK! Very few people really care about your loved ones like you would like them to.
Very clean and up to date facility in a beautiful setting. It seems to be of high quality and will definitely be an option for our loved one in the near future.
This is a great place for anyone struggling with dementia. The staff are warm and friendly and its a brand new place and clean every time my wife and I visit. The past 6 months have been great for my Mom and she is much happier now. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for care of a family member.
My mother has been living at Peregrine since the end of September (~3 mos when posting this review). I visit 2-3 times per week, and in this time, I have found the staff to be a caring and patient group of people that give my mom the attention she needs, and treat her as they would their own family. My mother has always been a "foodie" and she praises the dining experience! The food is sincerely top notch. The medical staff is responsive and will call with concerns and information promptly. The facility is very clean with a nice layout, secure outside areas, and beautiful birds in an indoor living area to watch at your leisure. Overall, my mom and I are both quite happy where she is, and I would highly recommend Peregrine in Colonie to anyone looking for a place for their loved ones to reside with peace of mind.

My friend [name removed] has been at Peregrine Since Oct. 2018..In this short time I have seen such a positive change in her..Between the staff...meals... and weekly stimulation activities ... have all added to her improvement .Because of the good care given her I no longer worry about her on a daily basis anymore...I would recommend Peregrine to anyone who is suffering with Memory loss ..The staff fully is engaged with caring for their residents with this problem.
My mom had been there for 3 months & we couldn't be more pleased. Sure, there are some things that could improve, but all profit facilities have their flaws. I feel as though the activities could use a majoroverhaul. The activities girl is sweet, but I feel like a great deal of the clients appear bored. Every time I come to visit, especially on the weekends all there is is puzzles and coloring. My mom personally loves the bus trips, and music entertainment but I dont think puzzles are something she has ever done. The care staff for the most part is top notch. The nurses and medication people are knowledgable, and if I have a question or concern. The response is prompt. Some of the clients are more confused than others and the staff has patience of saints. They handle each client with individuality and such csre. Is it perfect? As I said, not always. However, the peace of mind you receive knowing your loved one is safe is worth seeing past the flaws. I recommend peregrine to anyone going through the process of watching someone you love, fade away.
I am surprised at the negative reviews because we have had a good experience so far. My mother in law has been at Peregrine for 3 months. We haven't had any issues. Everytime I go there the staff is friendly and the place is clean. I find it hard to believe that someone would keep a family member in a place for 7 months without being showered. That sounds more like a disgruntled employee to me.
Overall a disappointment. My father has been there for 7 months. They do not have the experience to maintain these people. They can not and do not get him in the shower or get him to brush his teeth or anything from personal maintenance. We get in there and have to change his clothes ourselves, These people can't even get him to change his shirt. You would think every couple of days they would change the clothes of everyone as well as check to make sure they have not soiled themselves. A few times we have got there to find him an absolute mess. They have the potential for a great place but they are 100% hands off in many important areas.
My mother has been at Peregrine since April. In spite of other bad reviews, I am very satisfied with the care she receives. Nice people work there and it is always clean and bright. Plenty of activities.
Peregrine Colonie is always bright and clean. Staff is friendly and seems to really care. They also take them on trips from time to time. A broad range of abilities of the residents makes the community better I believe.
Peregrine is a wonderful place. I have the privilege of observing the staff caring for our loved ones numerous times a week. They are caring and compassionate with a strong focus on the comfort of our family members. I would recommend this facility to everyone. The only issues are staffing levels and training. Administration needs to step up hiring as they sometimes lack coverage if someone calls out but those girls get things done. The memory care unit needs more individuals who are trained to handle the unique behaviors of the dementia and alzheimer inflicted individuals. I appreciate the staff as they work very hard to provide a homey and loving environment for our family members. Staff is friendly and easy to talk with and I have no reservations when I have to walk out the door.
We had a loved one here. Not a good facility. Staff isn’t consistent and most aren’t familiar with how to care for elderly with memory care issues. They are having their current employees post positive “reviews.”
Sadly this place is not what it seems. It is a shiny new facility that doesn't give a damn about the people entrusted to their care. Their staffing ratios are not what is advertised, or safe or legal. Swing by unannounced on weekend and you will see this for yourself. At times they have no idea how many resident are currently in the facility, which obviously begs the question how do you know everyone is accounted for? (Spoiler alert - they don't). And good luck finding any staff member at night, even one! This on top of unclean conditions, lack of attention, apparent lack of knowledge and experience concerning memory care needs and poor communication make for a subpar facility.
No no no!!!! Awful place, awful managent. Unsafe, unclean. Staff have little to no memory care training or experience. Residents are a monthly check and that’s all. It’s a revolving door of staff at all levels. Families are leaving left and right. Huge red flag when I started to see that. 2 months was too long for our loved one to be there. Have filed a report with the Dept of Health. Left a negative review on their FB page and they have removed it. Guess they don’t want people to know the truth!
Nothing good about our experience here! Unsafe, unclean and the staff is deceitful. My mom was here only a few weeks and it was terrible from the beginning. Do not leave a loved one here.
Been there a few weeks. Feel like they Over promised & under delivered. Opened in September, tons of staffing changes in January and it’s currently understaffed. Seems like more residents are moving out than moving in. Not convinced that the current staff in experienced in taking care of elderly with memory issues. Communication is a big issue. And the senior staff is not good with follow through. Don’t think we’ll be here long term. Very disappointed.
