Pickersgill Retirement Community has always been proud to serve its residents with great care and the utmost attention, which is why it is a real pleasure to announce that our Towson, Md., community has been ranked as one of the top communities for 2013 on SeniorAdvisor.com, the premier online ratings and reviews site for senior living communities nationwide.

The SeniorAdvisor 2013 Excellence Award recognizes senior living communities that receive consistently high ratings and positive reviews from residents, families and visitors, and it’s an award that is given to less than one percent of communities nationwide.

Our staff at Pickersgill are always a bragging point for me. I consistently receive comments from visitors about how friendly and welcoming our employees are to visitors, residents and family members who walk through our doors, and walk through our corridors. A smiling face is part of the uniform at Pickersgill, and I am happy that the visitors to our community recognized our employees through reviews posted to SeniorAdvisor.com and A Place for Mom.

Another area of particular pride for me is our responsiveness, which was also highlighted in reviews about our community. When someone asks us for information, we give it to them. If they want background on our community, it’s in the mail. We want visitors to our community to not only leave with a smile on their face, but with an understanding of what we can do for them and their family members.

If an interested senior or relative is able to make it to Pickersgill for a tour, we are confident that the community sells itself.  It makes you feel very proud when people leave our doors and report having a positive experience.

According to SeniorAdvisor.com, recent research indicates that nearly 90 percent of consumers “sometimes or always” consult reviews before making the decision to move into a senior living community, so these reviews—and this award—help give Pickersgill a competitive edge.

Pickersgill Retirement Community is a nonprofit retirement community nestled among dogwoods on a beautiful campus in Towson, Md. Pickersgill has a tradition of excellence, and a rich history. Founded, and named after former board member Mary Pickersgill—the seamstress who inspired “The Star Spangled Banner” with her flag that waved over Fort McHenry—Pickersgill is the rare community that can claim it has dutifully served generations of seniors in the Baltimore area for more than 200 years.
