Assisted Living Reviews for Peoples Retirement Community

I am/was a resident of this facility

I stayed at Peoples Retirement Community for about five months. They were mostly retired, and they didn't have a lot going on for anybody that was my age. It was assisted living, so they had a nurse on duty and a doctor, and most of the people just kind of sit around and go to sleep. I had a one-bedroom apartment, which was nice. The food was good, and you're assigned a table in the dining room. The staff were really friendly. They should have more activities for people that are my age. I'm 61, and most of the people there were 70 and 80. It's a good community for people with disabilities.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We move my brother to People's Retirement Community and we choose it because my brother has dementia issues. One of the things that I appreciate is that my brother is under VA medical and People's Retirement will provide transportation if I am not able to. Everybody has been very nice so far and we haven't had any issues with them at all.

About Peoples Retirement Community

Peoples Retirement Community opened its doors in 1988. The idea of Pastor Owen Shackett (of Peoples Church) and his wife Betty saw a need for retirement living in this community. Originally designed for independent living, the need for an assisted living quickly became apparent and began slowly admitting residents requiring assistance. A few years later resulted in the first floor, the east wing being remodeled to accommodate memory care.
