My mom lived at Peristyle from 2021 until she passed away peacefully in her sleep on March 30th, 2022. Mother had moved from another assisted living community that no longer felt confident in meeting her medical and dietary needs. However, Peristyle was able to manage both effectively. Truly a relief and a blessing.
There is a professionalism, pervasive cheer, and can-do attitude that is very appealing at Peristyle. The executive staff (Blake, Milisa, Alaina) set this tone each day and it is noticeable from the friendly, skillful LPN nurses through to the all important ‘care partners’ - who do most of the hands-on care for your person.
Alaina, in marketing and finance, is knowledgeable, approachable, and warm. Milisa, the amazing activity director, long ago gave her passion and heart over to the residents of Peristyle. Their quality of life really matters to Milisa, and it shows. Blake, the wellness director (and upon whom most responsibility falls) is positive, enthusiastic and extraordinarily competent. If she ever has a down day you will never know. Blake listens, cares and collaborates with families in creatively solving complex issues that can sometimes arise with dementia. She clearly has a heart for each resident but also offers understanding and empathy for family members in their caregiving roles.
I visited my mom several times per week so I was an active presence. But I never felt that I was a bother - nor were my questions or concerns. My husband and I also never had to consider moving mom to a nursing home (since she still enjoyed activities) and that was very important to us.
While no one will care better for your person than you, from my experience, I believe that the staff at Peristyle will become a close second.
