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 dining services and meals are wonderful, so there are absolutely no complaints from our family member in that area either.... Read more

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.

Wonderful Facility

I moved my parents here from another facility in Stoneham that was just deplorable. The staff here is so friendly, caring, and always there to answer any questions. Mom and Dad have done wonderful here. There memory care unit is the best I have looked at. The residents even have access to an outdoor courtyard at all times to enjoy the nice weather. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone looking for a great place, especially with regards to the memory care unit.

Surprised and Disappointed

My mom has been been living here since 2012. I just recommended The Residence at Pearl Street to a friend and they told me that there were a few bad reviews on this site. I have to say after the change there were a few hiccups but the meals are so much better now and there is always something going on. My only recommendation to folks is that you should go and see for yourself. I know that there are many review sites and some don't always vet the comments the way they should.

Not the same as Longwood Place

Please do not bring your parents here. When it was Longwood Place it was the best place in the state. The employees and management at Longwood place was there for ever and always cared for the residents. All of Longwood Place team has left in one year time, what does that tell you. No one in there right mine would ever bring there parents there.This is a company that keeps buying places up. They are in it just for the money. It is sad that Longwood Place is gone. These chains are going around buying all these small assisted livings and sooner or later they sell out or fold.

STAY AWAY

Any positive review is done by LCB, this place is so cold to the residents. Management and all the help from Longwood Place is gone is less than a year. Do not bring your parents here. There are so many places that are more caring. This company is in it just for the money. STAY AWAY

Look elsewhere

Pearl Street was initially fabulous. Once the company changed hands things went down hill and fast. Food was horrible, not enough staff, missed medications constantly changing staff. One hand never knew what the other was doing. Very very disappointed. I cannot even tell you the marked change in my mother since moving her from Pearl Street. Very Disappointing experience.

Not a good place. Big turn over with the help. Longwood Place was a warm feeling with the employees. This company is so cold to the residents. The management and all the help from Longwood Place are all gone. You have to ask yourself why. Stay away from this place

Great Community

This community is really clean and the staff is really friendly. There are no odors and the house keeping staff really does a great job. The staff here seems to have a real passion for working here and what have to offer their residents. It is just an outstanding community and I would recommend to anyone.
