Tour of Residence at Pearl Street

I loved Residence at Pearl Street and I loved the staff. It is an old library, so they have huge windows and a lot of natural light. When I need a place, this is where I will want to go.

Wonderful Place to Call Home

Our family member could not have found a better place to call home than the Residence at Pearl Street. [name removed], Sales Marketing Director, was extremely helpful right from the start. She was instrumental in assisting us at a stressful time when our family was trying to find an assisted living residence for our loved one. [name removed] greatly impressed us and helped get things in place in a good time frame. She was terrific and we are very thankful to her. We are so happy with the kindness and care our loved one receives at the Residence at Pearl Street. All the staff make her feel safe and secure and truly cared for. Our loved one is happy there and all of this gives our family great comfort. There are so many wonderful and engaging activities and she has made many friends. The Residence is bright and cheerful with lovely activity and dining room areas. The dining services and meals are wonderful, so there are absolutely no complaints from our family member in that area either.

A Happy Place for Mom

My Mom moved in March 2020 as COVID hit. The staff was and is so caring and very personable. Everyone was covered in PPE . The management/staff visited each resident daily to help with isolation.We had video calls with her so we could visit and check in. A wonderful associate saved my Mom who stopped eating! Hospice was called in due to her lack of will to go on. This wonderful associate coaxed her to eat her favorite foods and she recovered. We owe it to her and the all who were so dedicated to the residents. But the staff also noticed my Mom had declined terribly in the Fall. She was struggling and lost frequently. We approved Mom to be moved to memory care and she adjusted quite well. She is thriving in the environment for those with issues with memory and needing extra care. She is very happy and safe. Everyone got their second shots in Feb. 2021 and now we feel so much better.  Thank you Pearl Street for taking care of our loved ones so well.

My Mom moved in [date removed] as COVID hit. The staff was and is so caring and very personable. Everyone was covered head to toe in PPE to keep the virus from spreading!

a wonderful place for independent seniors

Be cautious, they can supply the care you need but they do increase the price with more care needed. So make sure you know what care is needed. During the day the staff was great, but overnight the staff could often not be found.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts; our pricing is all-inclusive depending upon the level of care you or your loved one is in need of. Please reach out to your Executive Director or anyone in the home office if you have questions! Thank you again, all the best.

The Residence At Pearl Street

When we go there, we see it is always very clean. When we had some issues with my bother-in-law, the staff was right on top of it and wonderful. They were even the ones who brought the concern to our attention and since then have been very on top of it. They have been in constant communication with us regarding the Covid-19 pandemic and not only what they are doing to protect the residents but also how my brother-in-law is doing emotionally. We really appreciate their level of communication regarding this. They have daily schedules of activities normally, and during the community lock down, they have allowed residents to go outside and get fresh air and are also planning to set up meeting spaces for families to safely visit the residents. They are allowing us to FaceTime him when we want.

My brother is safe and happy.

From the first visit we knew this is a wonderful place to reside. My brother lost his dear wife in May and a few months later I noticed he was declining quickly and could not live alone anymore. We visited The Residence and he said it felt very comfortable and homey. He canceled the other visits we had arranged and moved in a week later . He loves it there especially the flexibility in the dining room and the comradery of the other residents, He never has to be alone.

The Residence at Pearl Street makes a difference!

I see such a difference in my mother-in-law since she has been a resident of Pear Street. Living with me she was alone a lot during the day and she became more depressed and tired. She would spend the day watching television and napping. She was hesitant about staying for respite while I was traveling, but I explained that this was nothing like a nursing home and more like a hotel and she agreed that she would try to make the best of it! And she definitely has. She never moved back home; she went right from respite to becoming a permanent resident. I personally had a lot of guilt about leaving her because I had promised my husband before he passed away that I would take care of her. My friends and family told me that by letting her stay there I was taking care of her. She is busy all day long and is very happy at Pearl Street. She is very social and enjoys people and will go out of her way to try to help anyone. She takes part in almost every activity that is offered. It is wonderful to see my mother-in-law so full of light and life again and that is because of the people at Pearl Street! The staff are so very caring and genuinely interested in the residents. Thank you for all you do each and every day.

Wholesome living at Pearl Street

I moved my mother into assisted living at The Residence At Pearl Street a little over a year ago. Although it was a difficult transition, the staff was very helpful and supportive, and they have continued to be so. The activities, as well as the activities director, are outstanding with a wide variety of physical and mental games and exercises, and entertainment and social gatherings, offered daily. The 3-a-day meals are also excellent, and the friendly food service staff strives to meet the needs and palates of everyone. The management is also doing a good job in keeping the facility up to date including the latest renovation that replaced all resident unit windows. Overall, I would recommend anyone interested in assisted living to consider Pearl Street.

Wonderful supportive living environment

My uncle moved to the Residence at Pearl Street three years ago at 93 years of age. He was widowed but still living at home up until that point. His health was deteriorating and after a hospitalization and rehab stay we felt he could not remain safely at home. The Residence at Pearl Street was recommended by the rehab facility staff. Here my uncle thrived. He regained his strength and his general health greatly improved rapidly. I've always felt it was a combination of three great meals each day, medications given and taken as prescribed throughout the day, and the many opportunities for daily socialization and activities with peers that is encouraged by the very caring and engaged staff. My uncle just recently passed away quietly at age 96 at the Residence at Pearl Street which he came to consider as home. If your loved one needs or would benefit from a supportive environment I strongly encourage you to visit this lovely and vibrant facility as I did. I am certain you will be surprised and impressed with all that is offered. My best to you.

Heartless

Placing 2 Seniors in a one bedroom space account their financial situation is not kindness, its maximizing profit. [Name removed] you should be ashamed! After bleeding people of their life savings then casting them aside is just wrong. This will be blogged across the internet for the public to decide. - This is a heartless assisted living facility.

My mother in law seems to like the food most days. The staff have been helpful and accommodating. They are encouraging her to participate in the many daily activities they offer. They keep the community clean and the grounds are well maintained. This community is close to family and they offer the accommodations she needs. They have buzzer for when the residents need assistance. I would recommend this community.

This just did not work for us

My dad's had a hard time here . They could not meet his needs and he constantly kept trying to escape through windows, doors anyway that he thought would get him out . There were not any activities to keep him busy . My father was very active so he had a hard time for someone that is not as active this would be a nice place

My mother has been lining there for 30 days & from the first week she was happy there & it has only gotten better since. The staff & the residence there have all been very nice and helpful & attentive to her needs. I would say it's like living on a cruise ship plenty of activities all day. The food is very good & plenty of selection & all you want. The staff is happy and easy to call & get attention from. Best decision i could have made for my mother.

Warm and Friendly

My Dad has been living at Pearl St. for four months and it was a pretty seamless transition. As a family, we have peace of mind knowing that he is cared for, has delicious food and people he can socialize with. My Dad enjoys participating in the activities and has felt welcomed by everyone. When asked how he feels about Pearl St. he says: "everyone is so nice here". My family will attest to that as well...we are always greeted warmly by all of the staff as well as welcomed to join in and participate in the activities; whether it is a game of Bingo or Horse Racing it is great to see residents, staff and family alike laughing, joking and having some fun.

Living at Pearl St.

A couple of years ago I was living on my own. I had a medical condition that required more care. I realized I couldn't live on my own anymore. I started looking and saw many places. When I came to Pearl St., it impressed me right away. It was beautiful and so clean. The more I saw the more I liked it. I cannot say enough about how much I love it here. The food is great and the staff is so helpful and professional. Colleen knows everything I like. I have things even before I ask. Colleen even adds special things that I really enjoy. I am anemic and she makes sure I have spinach everyday. I truly appreciate everything the staff does for me. It is a relief to know there is a care staff here 24-7. It makes me feel very secure. They are all so great. There is never a dull moment here. If you enjoying doing things, there is always something going on. I love the entertainment here. There are performers 2-3 times a week and they are all so talented. The people here care so much. I am also so glad that Mark is part of the staff. He makes sure the building is well maintained and clean. He is always smiling and has a great sense of humor. The van takes us walking, CVS and on trips. It is helpful to be able to pick up medications, less to worry about. John the van driver is so kind and courteous. He is a great asset to the staff here. I am so happy here. I couldn't imagine living anywhere else.
