Nice Place to Live

It was nice. We haven't had any huge complaints. It served its' purpose for me, where somebody was making sure my loved one was fed every day and got his medications and those kinds of things. Before he moved here, he wasn't able to do those things for himself or simply wouldn't do them, and he would go without for the day until I got home. I think they offer nice activities. And overall I think everything went well. The people I talked to seemed nice, and it seems like a nice place to live.

Our Experience at Celebration Villa of York

The main problem is waiting for assistance. They are grossly understaffed. When you need assistance, sometimes it's an hour to wait rather than the seven minutes they tell you it's going to take. My loved ones say the food is very poor quality, and they are not happy with it. But both the staff and the residents are all very friendly And the facility seems very clean. Their room is clean, and the whole facility looks really good.

Home Beyond Home

It's the best place to go for respite care. I love the whole atmosphere, the friendliness, the warm welcome. My dad is getting ready to go again to visit in the near future. The living spaces are big, with plenty of room. Dad said he was very impressed with the care he received. He met a bunch of friends there and had a lot of people to talk to, including a lot of military people. And he's looking forward to talking to them again. The only problem I foresee is when we picked up his bags, they said everything was in there, but his diabetic insulin pen was not there. And they couldn't seem to find it. So they took a bit of a downfall in my eyes because that's expensive,and he needs that. So that's something I will keep an eye on this time for sure. But if you have any questions, contact [name removed] in admissions. She worked with us since day one, and she is a godsend.

Tour of Elmcroft

We toured Elmcroft of York and it was a lovely facility. If I were looking for a place this would have been perfect for me because I like the fancy nicer furniture, but that it not what my loved one was looking for.

easy to deal with

The community was very clean and accommodating. They worked hard to get her in quickly and the staff was very friendly. Communication was good between the staff and our family and they keept us informed. I would recommend this community to others based on my experience.

Healthy Mom = Happy Son

My mom was living alone for 12 years after dad died, but over Christmas she stayed with us for 3 weeks and we got a true look at how much help she needed every day. She kept forgetting to take her pills, she wouldn't shower (only "bird bath" but she still had an odor), and the worst of it was she was becoming unstable on her feet. My wife visited facilities and liked this one the best because it's "homey" We took mom to see it and she went from saying "Im not moving, I'm fine at home" to "I could put my dresser here, and my corner hutch here". It's been a couple months and though we've had to stick with video chats and window visits due to covid rules, my mom has stayed safe and the facility is efficient in keeping the people there safe, healthy and happy. Now that restrictions have lifted we can go in and visit her in person. My wife agrees that mom has definitely gained weight back, and we notice she's just happier. The staff make her feel loved and she enjoys chatting with them.

My review of Elmcroft of York

The staff members were very friendly and nice, but there were times where it seemed like the nursing staff was not very experienced. The food was pretty good and the value for cost was just okay.

be careful price is not everything

The community has a high turnover in staff, tending to the medical needs of the residence is lacking. Communication is average but they do not return calls quickly. If your loved one is completely independent this facility may work for you if not I would look elsewhere

I would recommend

We chose Elmcroft of York at the time because they were the only ones who would really accept him in his condition. Overall it was short stay but we had a good experience. I would recommend them to others who are looking.

Evaluation of Elmcroft

We chose Elmcroft of York because it was recommended to my brother. He chose Elmcroft because he tried the food and thought it was good so he didn't look anywhere else. The room sizes here were adequate for his needs. I would want others to know when looking into the facility that we had an issue with them because they did not evaluate him correctly, they could not care for him adequately and I think he needed nursing instead of assisted living. They should not have taken him in the first place.

Definitely recommend

We chose Elmcroft of York because they were able to accommodate his needs, the place was neat and pleasant when we entered, and the price was competitive. I thought the food here was great, it was prepared on site and was fresh. A lot of it catered to the ethnic group that it native here. I would want others to know that our experience was fantastic. I have 3 girls who work in healthcare and they were all positively impressed, so that says a lot. I would definitely recommend the community and have.

Outstanding Care and Leadership

The sense of family here is amazing. My mother has lived here for the past year and as would be expected a move can be difficult. However the Elmcroft team helped make this move as easy for her as they could, and she quickly grew to love it here. They have stayed on top of communication and during this pandemic have gone above and beyond to make sure my mom and I are both 100% comfortable! There is no place else I could ever see her being and being this happy! Great Job Elmcroft team!

Small Home Like Place and Great Staff

I can not say enough good things about this facility. The staff is warm and inviting. My mother in law lives at Broadmore, and we are very happy she is there. After she fell, we weren’t sure what we were going to do. The move in process was easy, and the management staff has been very supportive and helpful. My mother in law is the happiest she has been in years. We see her out walking now and interacting with staff and other residents, there is always something to do. The nursing staff have very hard jobs, but they are helpful and very pleasant. My mother in law is a very picky eater. She doesn’t enjoy meat, but she will tell you that she is happy with the meals and options. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Beware: this facility is a money oriented rather than people oriented facility. We now pay almost nursing home rates !!!!! I am missing the former Executive Director who took the time to listen to us and the former nursing director who wasn’t a [removed]. My family member is paying astronomical prices for crap care, we are in the process of finding a new place to live for my loved one. TRUST ME POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS: there are too many places like this around to settle for one so overpriced!!! Do your homework before choosing a facility

Beware, Minimal Staffing, Horrible Food Service, Mixups

Mom is safe there and able to get assistance from a call button. Sometimes it takes too long. The food has gone downhill. A corporate dietician determines meals. Now using a menu system. No written menu. Witnessed nursing aides telling residents what is on menu, 2 main choices with alternative being a hotdog, hamburger or deli sandwich. Last time I saw mom eating one of their sandwiches the bread was so stale she was having difficulty holding the sandwich without it falling apart. One night they were offered entrees of pizza or turkey pot pie (Amish style). Mom chose the pizza as did the other 2 ladies and a side salad. The salad bowl was very small, the size of a desert bowl you may see at a all you can eat place. The pizza was 1/2 of a frozen personal size pizza,served cold and cold after reheating. All ladies complained. One telling me the food there is lousy and wont do any good to complain. "Dietician" is not providing balanced meals. Diebetics shouldnt be having a meal of carbs and lettuce. Normal dining room staff gone, aides taking meal orders, serving and cleanup. Think there is a staffing issue. No Director yet. And management team changes. 2 people have been there for the time my mom has been there. Others in nursing, overall Director, Activities Director, and Marketing Director have changed several times. Problems with coordination of medications between facility and OMnicare has not been resolved after repeated attempts with both parties. And mom is being charged for their mistakes. Have had issues making sure mom's care has been provide correctly from the beginning. Mom had no running water to take a shower and then no hot water in first week. One aide has been repeatedly rude to mom, one ignored moms page when she fell recently and was standing outside her door, one pulled off mom's sheets from her bed as a way of encouraging mom to walk to her meals and returned them without laundering them. More and more problems. With the change in personnel in critical positions, difficult. They also keep all records manually including contact info. Have repeatedly contacted me on the wrong phone number. No database or central computer system for patient records. Have witnessed staff working on records like it was an urgent project. Should be done daily. Moms laundry is not done weekly like she is paying for it to be done. What I have heard from other family members, they have transferred family members to Broadmore becuase of the same thing happening elsewhere. When I read positive reviews I can only assume that family members are not there enough to witness these things or the resident simply doesnt speak up. Someone at mom's table last night told me the food is lousy and doesnt do any good to complain. She ate her pizza cold. Horrible! For rent well over $3000 plus a care package, residents should be offered better meals at the very least.

My mom is so happy there.

My mom is so happy there. I haven't had any extra charges, to me it's well worth it The people treat her wonderful and that's worth more than any amount of cash. The food is good, the people are helpful to her. It's just been a good experience for me, and my mom. She was tired the first couple of days she was there she was tired from walking back and forth to her room, so now she just stays down after breakfast and stays busy all day long. They took them riding around looking at Christmas lights and she just thought that was wonderful. Her room has never been dirty when I've gone in. They wear a necklace with a button around their neck in case they fall and one in the bathroom. The housekeeping could be a little better she had no towels in her bathroom this time when I visited they took the towels out and didn't replace them, and twice she has had no toilet paper. If I tell someone they will fix it. It was small only houses 70 or so residents and all on one floor and basically is a circle so if you walk the hallway it goes in a circle and you will end up back where you started.

The patient to aide ratio was lacking.

The patient to aide ratio was lacking. There wasn't enough help.Things seemed to take forever even to get an aspirin. A little more help would have been good. I was very pleased with the activities. He ate well I would say the food was a five. I met an aide and it was a younger person and they left my loved one alone and he took a fall so maybe a little more awareness or training for the new employess would be good. They were very good with communication they would call right away. The size was nice not so big this was one reason we picked it.
