Memory Care Reviews for Peregrine Senior Living at Colonie

December 27, 2019

By Elizabeth

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

Peregrine Senior Living at Colonie was our best choice so far. I was happy enough to place my cousin in their care for respite. I liked it. They have single rooms that were well equipped. They have nice activities for the residents. The food was good. They have in-room bathrooms with a shower, bathtub, and sink. It was a locked facility for memory care.

I visited this facility

Peregrine Senior Living at Colonie was a brand-new place, so everything looked good. The staff was nice. The dining area looked fine. We didn't notice anything wrong with that at all. The room looked good. With it being memory care, there was no real kitchen or kitchenette type of facilities in it. It was like a large motel room. The bathrooms had good handgrips in it. We were accommodated very well. It was all clean and everything was good.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My mother has been living at Peregrine since the end of September (~3 mos when posting this review). I visit 2-3 times per week, and in this time, I have found the staff to be a caring and patient group of people that give my mom the attention she needs, and treat her as they would their own family. My mother has always been a "foodie" and she praises the dining experience! The food is sincerely top notch. The medical staff is responsive and will call with concerns and information promptly. The facility is very clean with a nice layout, secure outside areas, and beautiful birds in an indoor living area to watch at your leisure. Overall, my mom and I are both quite happy where she is, and I would highly recommend Peregrine in Colonie to anyone looking for a place for their loved ones to reside with peace of mind.
