12/03/2012 An OurParents User Writes: great place for your love one to live

5

Response: My dad has been with Peaceful Life for years. I'm ashamed to admit that I don't visit as much as I should but I do feel very comfortable that he is well taken care of. The facilities are older but the nice. The staff are pretty good. Dad loves the food. He says he gets bored sometimes but there isn't much that he would want to do anyway. The only way I would consider moving my dad is if the price goes up. Assisted living is very expensive and I'm having difficulty paying. The owners work with me on a month to month basis and I never fear that my dad will get put out. I would recommend Peacful Life to anyone who like a smaller, modest home-like setting.

07/05/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I have a mother with Peaceful Life. She has been there for over 5 years. I was contacted by the owner of Peaceful Life who informed me that she needed long-term, satisfied customers to write reviews to help counteract some hostile reviews she found on the internet. I must say that Peaceful Life and it's owners (Charity Barrett and Bobby Barrett) have done their best to run nice facilities. We have had some minor issues here and there but it is to be expected in these type of industries. They have a few really good staff who have been around for years. Some are not so good but they usually don't last. The facilities are usually clean. Sometimes, depending on when you walk in, you might smell urine or odor but I've always known it to be because of someone just having an accident or being changed right around that time. I find it amazing that the facilities look as good as they do knowing that their prices are very affordable. I've had the door practically slammed in my face when I searched for assisted living for my mom. When I found Peaceful Life, the cost was a blessing and I honestly feel that I get more than what I pay for. The owners are humble. I deal primarily with Mr. Barrett, who is pretty nice. I read the other reviews and I was a little surprised to hear that Mr. Barrett carried on that way. However, I don't know the circumstances around that customer. I can only say that my interactions have been respectful and helpful. Sometimes, I don't get the quickest response, but someone always gets back to me eventually.
When Mrs. Barrett told me about some of the slanderous and libelous statements that were out there on the internet about Peaceful Life, I felt really bad for her. I know that she has done her best to help me and others. Unfortunately, when people are disatisfied, they are more prone to announce it. Unfortunately, when people are very pleased, they don't always go out of their way to write an online review. Like myself. I am pleased and would recommend Peaceful Life to anyone. I see a lot of improvement lately with the upkeep of the facilities and hope more good things are in store for my mom and my family. I would like to say that I am so sorry Charity and Bobby that there are some people who do not truly know the great work that you all do. I know it isn't easy. Keep up the good work.

01/11/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Beware of Peaceful Life and Charity and Bobby Barrett. They only want the money and could care less about the residents.
Also, they have a nefarious staff member working for them. One resident had a life insurance policy taken out by a staff worker. He didn't know until the agent called about the policy to verify information.
Choose another facility, even if it sounds great and they give you a low price....Run the other way!

03/11/2010 An OurParents User Writes: I cannot rate the cleanliness of this particular location because I've never been there. I placed my father with Peaceful Life in Clinton, MD, which is owned by Progeny Enterprises, the same company that owns this location and the Peaceful Life in Upper Marlboro, MD. I believe they own a day care center as well. After speaking with one of the owners, Bobby Barrett I was thoroughly impressed by what he told me about his facility; plus, they offer services on a sliding scale. So I decided to give them a try. Everything seemed ok, until one day, I showed up to find my father soaked in urine and feces and in bed at 3pm. From there it was all downhill. I would constantly have to call the owner, who is my point of contact, to voice different concerns or ask questions about policies and procedures of the facility. On one particular occasion, I called the owner regarding his staff member telling my aunt that my father had been coughing up blood some time ago, which sounded serious to me. He basically blew me off. Which was surprising considering he does not have a medical degree. Every time I would try to speak, he cut me off, giving me some excuse as to why I wasn't notified and why no actions had been taken. After asking him several times to let me finish speaking before he tried to over talk me, I naturally began to raise my voice. After us yelling at each other for about five minutes, I suggested that we both calm down and exercise some professionalism. He then told me that I don't pay enough for him to be professional, and his broken promises to me regarding the care my father would receive weren't important to him because he has other residents to care for. I was totally oblivious to the fact that being charged on a sliding scale meant you received lower quality care and unprofessionalism from the owner should be not only tolerated, but welcomed.
