The Perfect Size at the Perfect Price
My 78 y.o. mother has been dealing with cancer for the last several months and needed more care than I could provide for her myself. Pickersgill turned out to be the best solution for our family. The days mom feels well, there are plenty of activities to keep her engaged, and the days she doesn't, I know she can rest in her room and get all the care she needs. The staff are all very friendly, and there is a real effort to keep the residents socially active. The size was perfect - we didn't need a large "country club" vibe, yet it's a big enough place that they offer all the medical care we required. Bonus points for having things like a beauty salon and rehab facility on site! I definitely feel like my mother's quality of life has been greatly improved since moving to Pickersgill.

Excellent Retirement Community!
We visited a lot of assisted living communities in the area and found Pickersgill Retirement Community to be the best by far! We immediately felt the environment to be a safe place for our grandmother. Everyone there makes it a point to be kind and compassionate to all the residents. The rooms and common areas are clean and comfortable. We can't say enough good things about Pickersgill.

Pickersgill is very caring and supportive
A house is just a house, until it's filled with love. The staff at Pickersgill Retirement Community are like family, and every time I'm there I see the love and respect for my parents as well as all the other residents. Mom & Dad both love their new home, and therefore so do I. We are so lucky to have found this place!

Pickersgill is awesome
Though my father has only been a resident of Pickersgill Retirement Community for the past 4 months, I am impressed with the quality of care, together with the welcoming atmosphere which has helped to ease his transition from independent living in his own home. The food looks delicious and tastes even better! The staff does much to include family members at every step of the process and stays in contact more than any other facility I have been involved in - and as a geriatric social worker, I have worked with most of the facilities in five counties.

Caring Staff
Our mother who have chosen to move into this wonderful community is not disappointed. Attention to detail comes along with a wonderful, caring staff of professionals clearly dedicated to those they serve. The community is beautiful, activities engaging. Great location - with easy access to downtown Baltimore and located in a safe and less trafficky area of Towson make this a wonderful community for individuals who wish to remain independent and continue to enjoy what the surrounding communities have to offer. Overall, we have been extremely pleased with Pickersgill Retirement Community.

Well kept and pleasant
Some communities are well kept secrets when it comes to good care and pricing. Pickersgill Retirement Community is one of those communities where they go above & beyond to care for their residents. They also have interesting and engaging activities that are meaningful and fun. During my visit, I saw happy residents treated with kindness & respect.

This is a very nice, clean community
My grandmother is in this excellent retirement community. I really enjoy going to visit her daily. And each time I go visit the lawn/landscaping is always so nice. Another thing I like is how the community is safe and security is always available to see who is entering and leaving the building. And I really like how the community is set up. It look as if it's an apartment community. And what's really nice is the staff members come around to check on the residents and there is housekeeping available when needed. I really enjoy going to visit this nice clean community and my grandmother.

Not bad, but not for Mem. ...
Not bad, but not for Mem. I think the person we met with was Janice Harris. She was nice but could not even think about getting Mem in Pickersgill until sometime in January. She was concerned about the Power-of-Attorney issue and said it would have to be straightened out before she could begin. She also said that with no savings to speak of, she wouldn't meet their financial requirements. We told her that Mem owns her home with an $80,000 loan balance from the home equity and that her guaranteed monthly income is around $3,400 but she still said she wouldn't meet the requirements. As we went through the recent history with the grandson, ex-coworker, etc. she commented three times, 'This is all too complicated for me.' Her prices were not less than Emeritus which was much more friendly and more inviting in appearance, as well. She said that if Emeritus accepted her and has a place now that we should jump on it. We met in her office and didn't get as far as seeing any units, so I can't comment on that aspect.

Amazing
From the first moment we walked into the facility I was already impressed. After meeting some of the staff they made our transition very simple and smooth. We went from being confused and unsure to being totally confident in our decision for my mother. She loves the community and has a confidence that she has not had since my father passed away. We can now be at ease knowing that she will be happy and cared for at Pickersgill.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the Maryland regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about Maryland regulations for Assisted Living.
