Assisted Living Reviews for Gardens of Pelham

June 06, 2019

By Jack

I visited this facility

I looked at the Gardens of Pelham and I liked it. It seemed to offer a lot of things I was looking for, and it seemed like the staff was nice when I talked to them. They introduced me to some of the employees that were working, took me on a nice tour, and showed me the rooms. It was laid out like an apartment, with individual rooms. The rooms were nice, with a closet, bathroom, and bedroom. The dining room was nice, large, and setup for everybody to eat at one time. They take them out, they have things coming into the facility, and they have activities inside. They have a schedule of things, and they have interesting things going on.

Gardens of Pelham has been great. They're very caring and loving people. It's a small place, only 16 residents, and it's a real family with a family feeling. The staff assists us with anything and everything we need. They're just fantastic. My mom has a standard room with a standard bath and we put our own furniture in there. It's very comfortable and they do a good job in keeping an eye on her. The place is pretty, and there's a front porch where they sit during the day, and a large back porch in the shade, which is nice because it's in a private area. Mary, the manager, is fantastic and wonderful. They have ice cream socials and people who come in to do different programs for them. There's something almost every day. The food is excellent and they serve them, so it's a real family atmosphere. It's well-organized and well laid out.

Quality of care here has been great! I have lived here almost 2 1/2 years and have come to feel like this is home. Our administrator and her assistant are really amazing. They will go out to the end of the limb to assist us with any problem we have. The RA's are so good to us. Making sure we are comfortable and always give us our meds as ordered. Any request we have they try to fill it. My family is also satisfied with my care.

I didn't want to leave my home but it became time for me to find professional help and care. My family found Gardens of Pelham and I have been very pleased with the care that I am getting. The quality of care is excellent. I especially enjoy the programs, food, and caregivers.

My mother in law is in Gardens of Pelham. The staff is great and they really take care of all her needs. I had dinner there one time. The food and dining set up is good. Her apartment is really nice. They have activities and recreations. They play bingo, cards and have different organizations there. We really had a good experience.

Gardens of Pelham is small, has 16 beds, and not real fancy. My mother is not real fancy, so it fits her perfectly. It's a very close knit group of staff along with the residents. It's like a home setting. It's like her second family, and she really enjoys it. We wish it had a little bit more activities and they are working on doing that. A lot of the residents don't want to do the activities, usually just my Mom and two or three others and that's it. I'm happy with it. I also wish they do some outings. They've only done a couple and my mother has been there for 2-1/2 years. The staff turnover rate is a little bit more than what I would like. Other than that, they are very sweet and always good to my mother. They put a menu of what they're having for each meal and if the resident does not like what they're having, there are other options like soup and sandwich or chicken fingers or salad, and they go around and ask each resident. They're very accommodating on that. They serve it to them, but they bring their plates out. I wish the staff turnover was not as quick and I wish they did more activities, but everything else is good. The staff workers are all very caring and do the best they can. We went to other places, and this is a little bit cheaper.

Gardens of Pelham was great. It was very clean and very appealing. I was very pleased with it. I encountered very few staff and they were very pleasant, sociable, and their attitude was good. It was overall a good experience. I was able to visit the dining area, and it was very good looking.

Very good food. I don't like fried food, so the cook bakes or grills for me. We also have activities like bingo, dominoes, rook, and crafts like making decorations for the tables according to the holiday.

Provider Response
