It Has A Lot of Potential: Needs Improvement With Staffing, Socialization, and Activities
The medication management could be better, as the staff could be giving my loved one's medication in person and watching my loved one take their medications. My loved one is bummed as the main nurse is leaving and there has been some additional staff turned over. It would be nice to see the community have a transportation for outings, shopping, lunches, and doctor appointments.

Elder Homestead is a big house that looked to be falling apart. The rooms were small and depressing. The staff were friendly and great with their follow up, but it was just not the right fit.

Terrible place
I do not recommend this place. Communication and transparency is just horrible and unacceptable. My mother has lived here 4 years (just recently into their memory care) and I feel very unwelcome by staff (newer staff) as turnover is very high. Some are just plain rude. Senior director ignored my message of concern and to speak with him. And they refused accountability/ liability for something a nurse broke in mother's home. She deserves better, and so do I, for her., we are very close, I don't feel she's getting good care. The studio's are very small, especially those in memory care, compared to the studio's in the assisted living units. Memory care is sectioned off/locked from the rest of the building, it feels like a locked up environment. I am checking into a better facility for her.

Good value
The social director has been extremely helpful. I think the nurse that is in there now has been helpful as well. My loved one said the food is fabulous. I know that they are short on staff, but everyone is. They lack a receptionist which can be problematic when you are trying to call. otherwise it has been a good experience and we would recommend them depending on your wants and needs. The facility is not brand new or luxurious, but for the value for the money is there.

We really like all of the staff members there we have enjoyed working closely with them. However they could work to improve on the meals and dining service, that has not been so great. The quality of the meals are pretty mediocre we end up bringing our loved one food a lot. Based on the experience we have had so far with Elder Homestead we would absolutely recommend them to other families.

Our experience with Elder Homestead
We chose Elder Homestead at the time due to the location, availability, and when we were interviewing, the staff all seemed friendly. They did say he would be able to stay, but while we were out of town they told us he would not be able to stay there anymore because they could not accommodate his falls even though this was nothing new for him. There was not much of any explanation, we had 48 hours to move all of his things out. We were not happy with the way we had to leave and how they handled it.

Nice place, a little understaffed
In general I think Elder Homestead is a nice place. I haven't met all of the staff, but the people I've worked with have seemed friendly and professional overall. The facility itself is nice looking, and they take good care of the residents. However, I do think that they're a bit understaffed. When we moved in they didn't really have anyone available to help us, and the one thing we did ask for help with took a while to get done. It's improved a bit, but I still think they could use a few more people.
