  • Peregrine Senior Living At Colonie

    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.

  • This place needs help. Keep looking. :-(

    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.

    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.
