Resident Testimonials

Take it From Our Residents

Get a better feeling of what life is like at Peabody Retirement Community through some of our resident testimonials:

Independent Living

Meet John & Brigitte Curtis

Meet Ned & Judy Short

“We really love our yard – planting flowers, tending shrubs, relaxing on our patio. Peabody handles all yardwork for residents, but we’re glad they’re willing to make an exception for us.”

Meet Nancy Givens

“I get bored easily, so I love that Peabody offers so many activities. But with no pressure. You can pick and choose what to do. It’s so much fun, I wish I’d made the move 10 years sooner!”

Meet Marilyn and Tom Drew

Marilyn and Tom Drew
“We considered the move to Peabody a gift to our kids, because we didn’t want our two sons and daughter to worry about us. But, honestly, it turned out to be a gift to us too.”

The Drews traded a two-story home with a full attic and barn, large yard, and pond for a Lindsey Place Garden Home—plus the community amenities and health care security that come with it.

According to the couple: “Peabody is perfect. Nice people, beautiful grounds, excellent location, and so much to do! Our social life is even busier now. We’ve already recommended Peabody to our friends.”

Assisted Living

Meet Sharie and Jerry Aikins, Inez’s Caregivers

Sharie and Jerry Aikins
“Inez lived with us for two years before moving to Peabody Inn assisted living. We considered 7 or 8 communities, Peabody is the only one that earned our trust.”

As a nurse, Sharie admits she approached the search for a senior living community for her mother-in-law from a unique perspective: “I looked at what Inez needed now and in the future. That’s why my husband and I chose the Peabody Inn.”

According to the Aikins, “The residents were getting out and about—happy, smiling and interacting—not staying in their rooms. We were confident the staff would help us keep Inez as independent as possible.”

Meet Wanda Woodward

Wanda Woodward
“I was ready for someone else to cook and clean. Those never were my favorite things to do! Now I have time to participate in all the activities and trips I want and I can volunteer in the Gift Shop. If you’re thinking about assisted living, don’t wait. Peabody is a great place to live. I love it here!”

Health Center

Meet Joan Eberhart


Meet Margaret & Larry Floor

Meet Mary Heminger

“I’m always delighted when a happy homeowner passes along my name to someone who needs a good listing agent. So, when others do a great job for me, I’m more than happy to make a recommendation. I recommend Peabody.”

Meet Gene Rohrer

Gene Rohrer
“It was an easy decision. I was so pleased with the results I got at Peabody following my total knee replacement that I didn’t hesitate to prearrange another stay. I requested the same room and the same therapist.”

When Gene Rohrer scheduled his upcoming back surgery and learned he’d need rehabilitative care, he pre-registered for the Rehab to Home program at Peabody Retirement Community.

With Gene’s total knee replacement, he was transitioned from rehab care ahead of schedule, and he credits much of his speedy recovery to Peabody’s exceptional team.
