Laurel Mead had all the activities offered. There was no middle ground. You were either totally dependent on them, or you’re totally dependent on yourself. It would be nice if there was like a kitchen so that you’d be able to cook your own meals. Everybody was very friendly, super nice, and they answered all of our questions. They’ve got a library, they read books together, and go to outings. There’s plenty to do.

On 25th of July, I'm going down to spend four days at Laurelmead to see how I like it. That's the only place I found in Providence I think that meets my requirements. One meal a day just suits me fine and that's the thing they have that nobody else does.
Laurelmead is very close to where my daughter lives. The location is wonderful. When you're walking through the facility, they have beautiful art work on the wall and it is very impressive. Physically, the facility is very pretty. They have a very nice pool. The dining room was very pretty. The facility was very nice looking, physically. The woman who was in charge of visitors was busy that day, so we went around with an assistant; she was fine, but she wasn't terribly good at her job. The rooms were nice and roomy.
Opened in 1994, and located on 23 acres of the historic Butler Hospital campus, which was designed by Fredrick Law Olmsted in the 1880s, Laurelmead Cooperative offers independent living in a bucolic setting, with easy access to all that Providence—and New England—has to offer.
We are a resident-owned, cooperative retirement community. That means we're not part of a national chain or of a complex non-profit life care community. At Laurelmead, the “owners” are shareholders; via resident participation in Policy Committees, and through the election of shareholders to the Laurelmead Board of Directors, residents determine the policies and the management of Laurelmead.
Because we're governed by the people who live here, residents have a deeper investment in their community and more voice in how it is managed. Besides that, our residents have access to an exciting array of activities and events—from performances and movies to education and trips. These enriching opportunities are among the many reasons that Laurelmead residents are happy to be part of our retirement community.
Residents have moved to Laurelmead from many states, including Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, California, Massachusetts, South Carolina, Texas, New York, New Jersey, and Florida.
Our website demonstrates many of the things that set Laurelmead apart from other retirement communities, but the best way to truly understand how we're different is to visit us. We hope to meet you soon.
