I am a friend or relative of resident
My parent is still at Sterling House. We want to move him. Even though it is ASSISTED Living, they want to change more and more for everything they assist with. Bathing, getting dressed, pushing wheel chair to cafeteria, etc. When he first came there 2 years ago, everything was good. It has gone downhill. In the evening there are only 2 people around. What if there was an extreme emergency or a fire. I thought that Assisted meant that they helped the residents. Would not reccommend.
I visited this facility
I have a chance to visit Sterling House of Penn Hills for my grandmother. They were very friendly there and very accommodating. They were under construction so I don't know that this is a true evaluation because I thought it was dirty. The rooms were small. I was there right after dinner and too many people were just sitting around and staring. They didn't seem to have any activities at that time. When I toured this facility, a woman kept saying, 'I'm going to pee my pants, I'm going to pee my paints ' and the head nurse who was giving me the tour, she never even acknowledged that lady. I didn't want that to be my grandmother sitting there and you are crying out for help because you're in a wheelchair and can't move and you're not even acknowledged. That right there turned me off. They did say they do have activities, but the head nurse didn't have an activity calendar to show me.

Sterling House has been excellent to my mom. We're really happy with where she's at and so is she. My sister who lives near the facility sees her almost every day. All the care has been excellent and the staff is very attentive. The atmosphere is homey and they make it out to be that way. They're really doing a very fine job.
I visited this facility
I thought this facility was very clean and well staffed, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location of this facility was very convenient as well, as it was close to major roadways and easy to find. One thing my grandparents really liked about this facility was that they have a personalized assisted living program. They could choose what types of assistance they needed, programs they wanted to participate in, what type of living facilities they needed, etc. They also liked that this facility offered lots of different activities, including movie nights, outings, shopping, etc.I did not care for some of the decorations throughout the facility. That was my one major drawback, is that looks wise, it felt a bit cramped and institutional. But overall, this facility is very nice.
