Testimonials

I moved my 86 year old mom here last week. This community exceeded my expectations, which were already high. Leslie Musser, my mom’s “Ambassador,” immediately came to our assistance, escorting her to lunch and happy hour and answering all of our questions. She even disposed of all our packing materials. The community residents have been friendly and kind. Kevin from maintenance went above and beyond to set up her cable. The nursing staff checked on her for the first 24 hours even though she is in the independent living area. She has a pendant to call for nursing help and will be getting PT and OT on the premises. My mom is really having fun and has forgotten she got cold feet right before the move. I am SO glad she made this decision, and it was so much easier because Paul Spring is such a nice place!

My dear Mother has lived at the Paul Spring Retirement Community for over 7 years. In that time she has blossomed under the kind and compassionate eyes of the entire staff there. When Mom was no longer able to live alone I began an exhaustive search for just the “right spot” for her. Many places seemed to offer all that she could ever want or need but none were “just right” UNTIL I arrived one afternoon at the Paul Spring. From the moment I walked through the front door I knew my search had ended. I have never once regretted my decision. If anyone is in search of just the “right place” for their loved one where the staff are always kind, compassionate, skilled, patient and loving then do make a visit to the Paul Spring Retirement Community... you will not be disappointed!

Paul Spring Retirement Community is a very caring community. It is decorated similar to a house, without that sterile feeling. The staff, including the nursing staff, housekeeping, aides and dining room servers display a respectful and caring attitude towards all of the residents. The business model makes sense without any surprises. My mom loves the food and the many friends she has made there. After looking at many places in the area, Paul Spring was the number one choice. Mom is safe and very well taken care of.

We moved our 99-year old mother into Paul Spring’s assisted living wing from another independent living facility in Maryland where she had been for 10 years. We were all very anxious about the move but the hard transition was made easier by all the friendly and helpful staff at Paul Spring. We were blessed to have several who seemed to take a personal interest in ensuring all went well. In particular, the Director of Nursing, Terry Ellison, is very warm and compassionate and developed a personal connection with mom, who is a retired nurse. Director of Community Relations, Ashley James, Nurse Ana, and “Ambassador” Leslie all provided unwavering support and a caring touch to help get mom oriented to her new surroundings. The facility is very nice but the thoughtful people working there is what makes it stand out!
