This place is a disgrace and anyone who would leave a loved one here (and can afford better) has no love. My grandmother, healthy, beloved by everyone, living here several years, calls but cannot get ordinary assistance as she used to, putting her in DANGER and DISCOMFORT too often. Administrators are cutting corners and cost for themselves but at residents' expense. The food is so horrible she will probably die from loss of appetite and nutrition. Overworked understaffed staff were TOO BUSY to retrieve her hot soup from the microwave, so she BURNED HERSELF. New renovations ($$ better spent on residents' assistants) also destroyed the beautiful, HOME-LIKE feeling Providence Place once had. The sweet white front door was removed so now it looks like the horrible nursing home that it's fast becoming.

I highly recommend that you never and I mean never put your loves ones here or even apply for a job here they can't any workers staffed they are always short staffed most of the workers here are lazy and are really disrespectful and always have an attitude about the littlest thing all this place cares about is MONEY and themselves I would never in a million years put my mom or dad or any one I love here the nursing office here are completely rude and think they can intimidate anyone because they have power and will write you up because they can

This place sucks as an ex employee of dietary aide don't ever work here. The supervisor and boss both are females and they yell at you for no reason and give you a write up just because they feel like they have the power to do so. The supervisor alicia l also has another job working as a warden from schuylkill prison. She is very mean and rude.

My father-in-law has lived at Providence Place for several years after his doctors decided he could not live on his own any longer. He has enjoyed a private room with a spectacular mountainside view; the room complete with his own bath and kitchenette. He LOVES it and the staff. We will be forever grateful to the staff who sat with Dad in his room for more than an hour upon his arrival. Everyone went out of their way to come in and introduce themselves and took the time to listen to Dad's concerns. When we first arrived Dad was apprehensive and a bit frightened. By the time we were leaving, he was laughing and joking with staff as if he had been there forever. A big concern was that Dad was not eating well on his own; not only has he raved about all his meals (which he eats with his friends in a beautifully appointed dining room), he has actually gained weight! After fighting us on the idea of assisted living for years (and he would not move in with any family member), after twenty four hours at Providence Place, he was telling us he should have moved there "years ago." Another issue we had with Dad was his not taking his medications as prescribed. He had been hospitalized at home several times because of this problem. The staff can be completely trusted to see that Dad gets all his medications if and when he needs them and not one problem since. What a relief! The social life for residents is beyond compare; our biggest complaint would be that Dad is never in his room where we can call him. Mall trips, bingo, concerts, black jack, etc. all occupy his time. It was particularly important to Dad that he still attend Church and Providence Place has a van that takes him there every Sunday without fail. They schedule his doctors' visits and then take him to those appointments. He was tickled that the driver of the van actually came by a half hour earlier than his scheduled pick up time to remind him he needed to be ready to go. A half hour later, the gentleman came back to take Dad out. Dad was so pleased. During his time there, we have had regularly scheduled conferences with the staff. We have never found anyone to be anything but caring, kind and most professional. Do not hesitate for a minute to consider Providence Place!

My beloved aunt who is in need of some assistance as she ages liked Providence Place when we first looked at it as a place for to spend what we hoped would her last years. We wanted a place that would provide her assistance and give her a friendly atmosphere with proper care if and when she might need it. After a short spell we found we were seriously misled by the staff and admin at Providence Place in Pottsville. The staff were dismissive of our requests, had no time to see to Aunty's needs and at the first sign of any problem would call 911 and rush her off to the ER without proper assessment. PP is in the business of making money, not to take care of beloved relatives in their final years. For those of you looking for an assisted living residence please don't consider PP. Kelly is particularly rough with inmates, a word I don't use lightly, as I felt that's how the my aunt was treated. Because of various and unfortunate health problems created by PP we've since removed my aunt. We got no help or referrals, in fact we got the bum's rush when we told them we wanted to leave. The admin at PP seemed more interested in hiring out our aunt's room to another paying customer they could bilk out thousands of dollars each month. Stay away from PP.
