Love working has given me a real sense of accomplishment and pride to have been working here the past year. The residents are definitely a top reason that i go into work, every single day, with a smile. Then add in my fellow co workers and upper management and it creates a work atmosphere that one could only hope for! With Paul, Matt, n Calvin in the kitchen, Nate and 2 Michele's in housekeeping, Courtney And Denise in sales, Sheryl Dawn, Jen, and Steph @the front desk, and Robin n Kim in the office, and all other staff i have the privilege working with....makes it all worth it! This place has helped me grow as a person in so many ways, and I'll always I consider myself blessed and very lucky to have had the chance 2 work here.

Where do I begin...My mom died suddenly and we needed a place for our dad to be safe and happy in almost an instant. We went to lunch twice in one week w/dad in the restaurant and again looked at the various available rooms. The staff was so patient w us and very helpful as we worked diligently to convince our dad this was the place he needed to be. Well fast forward 3 years and my dad couldn't be happier! He is getting more exercise now walking the corridors to and from the elevator with his walker and couldn't be happier with all the friends he has made and the daily activities he takes part in. The transportation they provide is a big plus as we don't have to take time off from work to bring him to doctor's visits, and as you know once you pass 90 you have many!! The cleanliness of Anchor Bay is a 10+, the facility itself beautiful and staff are always so pleasant. Safety and security during Covid has been top notch as they are following strict RIDOH guidelines and have kept all residents HAPPY AND SAFE while the facility still is operating under restrictions per guidelines. Families are given regular weekly Covid updates by the director, Robin Pimental, via email which reassures us our dad continues on his daily activities and continues to be safe. If there has been a question or concern in the past w dad, Robin has promptly called us back to answer any questions we have had. So, as you can see we are extremely happy our dad resides at Anchor Bay and now at 91 he believes in longevity and looking forward to one day becoming a centenarian!!

My parents moved in over a year ago, the day before their 70th wedding anniversary on July 4th. AB graciously hosted a party for them and their family (16 people) on July 4th!! They have been very accommodating this past year, even through the difficult COVID season. I know they are all wearing many hats while family cannot go into visit. So, THANK YOU!!

I've worked at this wonderful establishment since I was 16 years old, and I'll be turning 20 soon. I started in dining and slowly moved my way to reception, as well as just helping out with various tasks needed. All of the staff are absolutely wonderful and some of the most caring and genuine people I have ever met. Each of the residents puts a smile on my face every single day, and I feel so blessed to have so many encouraging and loving people around me.

I have been visiting a friend at Anchor Bay for over five years. When I arrive I feel welcomed immediately by Cheryl, so consistently kind at the front desk. Her genuine, authentic concern is always felt by visitors and residents whether on the phone or in person. How fortunate for Anchor Bay to have such a caring employee. I can’t speak too highly of her!And I’ve observed many other caring employees like Michelle whose kindness and sensitivity is so evident especially to those who struggle, to Kim who is quick to return emails and help with various concerns, to AnneMarie in the beauty salon who gives such personal attention as she accommodates residents even when this may be challenging.My special gratitude goes to the workers whose kindnesses I hear about from my friend. Although she can’t remember their names, she does remember how they have made her feel. Blessings to all of you!

Anchor Bay provides its residents with a safe, caring, nurturing, and compassionate home. Both the Independent Living facility and the Assisted Living facility provide great comfort and care to its residents and their families. Throughout the years, its director, Robin Pimental, has led her staff to assist residents in a highly professional way with integrity and a clear vision to provide the best care possible. Both facilities, Independent Living and Assisted Living, are beautifully decorated, clean, and spacious. Every staff member has gone above and beyond to ensure that the residents are comfortable, safe, healthy, and cared for. Anchor Bay’s office staff, Kim and Cheryl, have gone to great lengths to handle the administrative day-to-day needs of the residents and their families. Kim is always on task with requested paperwork and administrative needs, and no matter how many times I call Cheryl on any given day, she is always pleasant and helpful. Tammi, Joanne, and Donna, on the Assisted Living unit, are available at all times to ensure that the nursing staff in that facility is attentive to the resident’s needs as well as to their family’s concerns. I cannot say enough about the great care that Anchor Bay, both the Independent Living facility and the Assisted Living facility, provides to its residents and their families. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend either facility to my family or friends. They’ve done an excellent job in caring for our loved one.

My mom has been living independently at Anchor Bay for just over a year now. We are so pleased with the staff and services! Mary (who brings mom her meds in the morning and evening), Cheryl and Genevieve (who answer the phones), Kim (who coordinates EVERYTHING), Michelle (who directs the choir), AnneMarie (who does Mom's hair), and Danny (who brings Mom an ipad so I can facetime with her every week, and is just a great guy in general) are just a few shining stars among the staff of dedicated, kind-hearted professionals who have made my mother feel happy and at home at Anchor Bay. Last year's Christmas Party was amazing. The movies, book clubs, walking club, companions at meals and gorgeous grounds all add to the wonderful experience that my mom is having in her new home. Top all that off with the peace of mind my family has that Mom is being cared for and looked after, all while living independently. Thank you Anchor Bay!

I would like to acknowledge two persons in particular at Anchor Bay who had gone above the call of duty. First, a shout-out to Laurie Spicuzza. I had downloaded pictures of my garden and posted them on Life Loop. Laurie created a beautiful collage of the pics and gave it to my mom. She was so thrilled to receive this!Second shout-out: On a recent Sunday, I had scheduled a FaceTime with my mom. We were having difficulty connecting. Realizing I don't have FaceTime on my phone, the attendant, (I believe his name was Dan) suggested Zoom, which I do have. He gave me the password and we connected. He stayed by my mom the whole time making sure she could hear everything that was being said. He was such a great help!Thanks to all at Anchor Bay for being so kind and patient with my mom and giving her such great care!

I started at Anchor Bay in March just before the height of COVID. The precautions taken for the safety of the residents has been exceptional. Seeing the residents now being able to visit outside with family, get their hair done, sit outside for fresh air and finally having lunch with their friends has been wonderful. Definitely glad I joined this amazing group of people who all care so much for the community.

My mom has been a resident for 2 1/2 years at Anchor Bay.Although the last 6 months have been challenging, the staff has done an amazing job keeping everyone safe. A shout out to Dan and Mae in particular. Dan is always there to lend a hand and is such a gentleman. Mae is so kind and caring. She has a special way about her and my mom has a bond with her. All the staff is excellent..

My Dad has lived in the community at Anchor at Pocasset for nearly three years. The entire staff has treated him with respect and dignity. I want to recognize several individuals who truly have stood out in my Dad’s daily life here. Laurie has given Dad much needed assistance helping him log into his congregation meetings before leaving at the end of her work day. This has been a lifeline to his well being. Dan also has given him a tremendous amount of help in setting up his new iPad so that he could have contact with friends and meetings on Zoom. He also takes time with Dad and has forged a nice friendship with him, which I appreciate greatly. John, Michelle, and many others have been so kind and have worked tirelessly in making our visits to him really count and his day to day life very enjoyable. I’m so glad that Dad is at Anchor Bay all Pocasset. You are a top notch team. Thank you all for you do.
