My loved one moved in during COVID. We were so worried about the care but it everything that we have asked for!! The staff is great! The Medical Team great! I could not have asked to move to a better community! Every time I walk into the community they always great me with a smile.
American House Elmwood is a wonderful facility. They truly care and every staff member will go out of their way to make sure that your loved one is involved and living their best life. I found every staff member to be especially compassionate, understanding and patient with those that need a little more assistance. Additionally, I appreciate that they keep me in the loop with my mom's progress without having to call. I get a text or a phone call every now and then just to share my mom's day with me....I love that about them! I am so thankful that my mom has a safe, caring and meticulously clean place to live. You won't regret your decision if you decide on American House Elwood......I promise!
The care at this community comes from an outside medical team, and the head nurse that works with the medical team gets snippy sometimes. Before COVID the activities were great, and the activities director is fantastic. They used to have singers come in all the time. Now they are trying to still do individual activities with each person, and some group activities where they are spaced apart in the dining room. The only issue we are having with American House is we have been given no options to come in and see our loved one.
[Name removed] gave me a quick tour (as I requested) and I liked the community, the amenities and the room was spacious, clean and updated with fresh paint and new carpet.
One of the hardest thing that an adult child to, is when to place a parent in assisted living. I gradually began this process in Summer 2016. My mom memory loss was gradual, as the month progress in 2016, moms behavior, incuresty to when and how long I will gone, since I was mom's caregiver. Finally I took a tour given by [name removed] in March. I love the facility due to the services and knowing mom is in a safe place to live. The move final came on [date removed], mom was reluctant to go, with the help from the staff, got mom moved. Recently mom told me she likes where she lives, that is due to the support of each and everyone who works there. Myself I have peace knowing mom is a resident at American House-Elmwood [name removed]
This community did not compare to the community we chose. This is an old grade school that has been remodeled. This is a larger community with old steel doors. This community was more expensive than what we were looking for.

Thank you for the 5-star rating! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour and look forward to welcoming your mother into our American House Elmwood community. Thanks again for the feedback- we appreciate it!
At first glance it appears to be a very nice place. Some of the staff are TRULY very nice and helpful. Some simply put on a good front. The food is NOT all that good. The med team that's supposed to be wonderful.....not so much. I think they will know what I am talking about. If you or your loved one needs a place to go, where you know they will be cared for with love; find a place that has security cameras all over.
I think they do a great job at American House of Elmwood! The facility is clean and well kept, and the staff do a great job looking out for the people who live here. I really like their activities program, they've always got something going on, and have lots of trips and events! They also do a great job with the food, my loved one is normally a picky eater, but loves the food here!
My father is staying at American House Elmwood Senior Living and has had a few complaints about the food. It does not have much taste, according to him. Other than that, things are good. The staff there are all very friendly and they try to get him involved in their activities. Overall we are pleased with the atmosphere and the care that he is getting.

Thank you so much for recommending us! It means a lot -- and I'm glad that you are happy with American House! Should you have any questions, please call me directly. Thanks again! Sincerely, Kathy Porman, Executive Director
We looked into this community when we were checking into respite care options. We didn't end up picking them for respite care but we are considering them as a more permanent move down the line. They weren't the nicest place we saw (still very nice!), but they were a good balance of cost to the care and environment they provide.

We toured this community when we were looking into care options for our loved one. We toured this, as well as another American House community, and they were both very nice! The staff here were all very friendly, and the residents seemed well cared for. The facility itself was older and darker than the other community we looked at, and we didn't like the feel quite as much.
Response from American House Elmwood Senior LivingNovember 4, 2014
Thank you for stopping by! I’m glad you noticed how terrific our staff is and how happy our residents are here. We hope your loved one is happy at the other American House community! Sincerely, Kathy Porman, Executive Director
My mother loves living at American House Elmwood very much. What I like about this one it is all one floor. She does not get confused about levels. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Response from American House Elmwood Senior LivingJuly 2, 2014
Thank you very much for your kind words! We are so pleased to hear about your mother’s happiness and it’s great to know the building layout works well for her. If there’s anything either myself or our staff can do for you anytime, please feel free to call. Sincerely, Kathy Porman, Executive Director [removed]
We toured this community when we were looking into care options for our loved one. This was a very nice looking community, and the staff were all very friendly, but I don't think it would have been the best fit for Mom. It was a large complex, and it would have been a bit much for Mom to navigate.
Response from American House Elmwood Senior LivingJune 12, 2014

I'm sorry you felt our community didn't fit your needs -- but if you're still looking, we have several other communities nearby that may be more of what you are looking for.
