My uncle is in Providence Place. The staff seems very attentive and there seems to be a high number of caregivers per resident. It's very clean, well kept, well maintained, very safe, and secure. It has a secure entrance and the door has a code on it, so nobody can enter or leave without a caregiver letting you in. It's a very good facility. The food is excellent. I've had meals there, they're very tasty, and nourishing. They have an activities coordinator and they do physical therapy, musical therapy, and play games.

Providence Place is much smaller and intimate than other communities, and it's more folksy. You get this impression that they have experience in dealing with their residents' situations. The manager, Catherine, was very knowledgeable, and you can tell just by talking to her that she has a world of experience. Each floor is like a home situation, where you have a great room with the bedrooms off at the end. When the residents get up at night they can go right into the great room and somebody would be in attendance. They're all-inclusive, so they take care of everything, and they're very close to some of the medical facilities where people get their healthcare. They gave me the impression that they're on top of things. Although they're not as glamorous as other places I went to, I'd definitely give them a high rating.

Providence Place felt like home inside and not institutional. I wanted a place where my husband would go and family would feel comfortable visiting him. They have a more structured setting in a way which would be good for my husband because he has just started wandering aimlessly. The great thing about them is that it's very low-key. You really feel like they work people from where they are, and the atmosphere is very mellow. They know that these people have odd behaviors, and they don't try to get them to conform to a particular agenda. They offer things to participate in, and they're really good at letting them just be themselves. My husband has adapted there way better than I thought he would, and he's way more relaxed than he was at home even though I had people all the time to watch him. It's close to my house, and the people are so nice; I'm so happy I made that move. They're really responsible and communicative. They send me pictures, and you can ask anybody on the staff how he's doing and they know. I have no complaints.

At Providence Place, the staff showed me the whole building. They had an activity room and dining room. The room was very cozy and had one person to a room. It was small but felt homey. The person who talked to me seemed very nice. I was impressed with how she described the care. I saw the living room, and they had some activity there and upstairs. The bathroom looked clean and small. It was nice, but it could have been brighter with natural lights. The dining area was clean, but a little bit outdated. The décor and the furniture looked old.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother has lived at this facility full-time for close to six years. While we have had some bumps along the way, we are generally happy with her experience and care there. In particular, we like that the facility is a home-like environment, with lots of personal, loving care. The facility is well-kept and the food is made fresh every day. The management is often in touch with us, and our one complaint is that sometimes they are unable to work out problems on their own. For instance, several times my mother has needed nursing care and the facility has needed guidance to arrange that - if not for our intervention, she would have been sent to the emergency room which is uncomfortable for her and unnecessary. Nevertheless, we are very glad to have found Providence and we are happy knowing that my mother is taken care of very well there.

My friend had heard about the home care services that Providence provides and said she had only heard great things about them. We decided to visit the facility in order to see if the assisted living would also be as good. The place was immaculate. The staff were all well groomed and professional. They aided in making the experience more comfortable as my friend was already on edge due to having to move her mother into the facility in the first place. Our questions were all answered and the staff were all pleasant and everyone we ran into spoke to us. The majority of nurses that we spoke with had years of experience in taking care of seniors and a brief conversation with one of the residents there confirmed that they know what they are doing. My friend was looking for a warm and friendly environment in which she could feel comfortable putting her mom in, and I believe this place is a good choice. The impression I got was that the residents are really cared for and treated as more than just a case number. They assure that it's more than just about putting your family in a home and leaving them. They make sure that overall care is provided for the resident and do way more than just the bare minimum.

I visited this facility

I visited this facility because one of my client lives here. I can say that all the employees I have met were all nice not only to the residents living there but also to their families and visitors. I can tell that the caregivers here really care for their residents, they treated them like their own family.

Providence's home care services were recommended to us by our family doctor and since then I feel like our family has truly become part of the Providence family. We didn't really know how to handle my grandmother's declining health and had received varied advice from friends and family...I thank G-d every day we met Galina and Providence. For the two years my grandmother was in their care, the folks at Providence did not only provide hands-on care for my grandmother in her home, but they also were biggest advocate for her overall care. They have so much experience caring for seniors that they know just what to do when anything comes up. Whether it was taking grandma to doctors' appointments, taking her out to see her friends, cooking the food she likes, they always managed to do a great and reliable job. Thanks to them, our family could focus on our own day jobs, knowing our grandmother was well taken care of.

I visited this facility

I used to run an adult day program in the Bay Area, and I referred people there. I've also toured Providence. This is a small, intimate facility that offer dementia care assisted living in a comfortable, homelike environment. It's upscale, intimate. And I believe they offer only shared rooms, though there might be one or two private rooms. They also offer respite care, which is a real plus to families looking for a break from in-home care. Another plus: It's located near a lot of medical services, like Kaiser and Mount Zion. And Providence collaborates closely with them and offers transportation to residents to and from doctors' appointments. Both the management and direct care staff are very good: very attentive and caring, all very professional. They have an RN, RVN, SWs--all well trained. The food is excellent, too. They have a certified chef and serve 24 hours. The only downsides I can think of: Parking can be a challenge (it's located on a busy street), and there aren't a lot of activities. Some of their residents attended my adult day program to fill in.

I visited this facility as a caseworker several times. Everytime I was there the residents seemed very well cared for and happy. The staff was very attentive to resident needs and even went so far as to point out potential family problems to the proper county employees. This shows care and affection for the residents and concern for their well being. Facility is clean and there seems to always be activities going on. Have asked residents about the food and they say it is very good. I would not hesitate to assist one of my loved ones to get into this facility.

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).
