Good Choice for Alzheimer's Care

I recently toured Providence Place with a friend who lives in the neighborhood and is thinking of moving her mom there. We spent more than an hour there and came away favorably impressed. PROS: - Friendly, appealing environment. The whole place has a warm, inviting vibe. Lots of photos of residents and artwork by residents on the walls, lots of personal items in residents' rooms, including stuffed animals. Lots of flowers and other nice touches in both rooms and throughout the facility. - We were there mid-morning, and we didn't see a single resident in her/his room. Everyone was up and about, engaged in activities of one sort or another. - Lots of smiles. The residents seemed reasonably happy, even though most of the people there had dementia. The staff also smiled, called the residents by name. Everyone knew one another and treated one another like family. - The activities themselves seemed good: exercise, strength training, manicures, knitting, music therapy, lots more. I watched one exercise class with about ten people with mild or moderate stage dementia, and the person leading the activities was awesome...high energy, very friendly. And she got them all involved. They were clearly having a good time. I also looked over the activities calendar for the week, and it was packed with good, appropriate activities. - Each bedroom had a bathroom, well set up for safety, comfortable (radiant heated floors), and clean. And the bedrooms themselves seemed very homey. Some had low-profile beds for those at risk of falling out of bed. - Nice lobby -- good for family members to visit with staff or residents. - Great views of San Francisco from many of the rooms. - The whole staff (those I met) seemed genuinely concerned with the residents and with keeping them happy and comfortable. CONS: - It's on a busy street in San Francisco. Parking is tough to find, especially when there's construction going on nearby. It can also be a little noisy when the front door is open. - The one, good outside garden area (where residents can sit and get fresh air) is accessible only by walking through one of the bedrooms. - It gets more expensive as the dementia worsens and the resident needs more care (reasonable to start out...pricey further down the line).

About Providence Place


Providence Place is a family operated memory care community specializing in personalized and loving care for adults with all forms of dementia, including Alzheimers. We care for residents from the beginning stages of dementia to end of life care so your loved ones don't need to be moved as their condition evolves.

Providence provides the highest level of professional care in a home-like environment. Providence was built specifically for the needs of adults with dementia. Residents live on different floors in "neighborhoods" according to their stage of disease. We are able to care for residents with difficult conditions.

We emphasize a community approach where residents are engaged in a large variety of activities throughout the day. Our on-site chef provides home-cooked meals and snacks. We are able to cater to the dietary needs of our residents as requested (including ethnic foods) or required medically.

We take great pride in the consistency of our caregiving.

Our caregivers and management have extensive experience with dementia and many have been with our community for a long time.

Provides takes a collaborative client-centered care approach. We work with families, doctors, other professionals and the resident to develop and execute a personalized care plan.

At Providence, we provide the highest quality of individual care so your loved ones can gracefully age in place.

What Makes Us Special
