    Everything is working out very well since my mothers move to this community. They have been great to work with, considering I live out of state. I'am very pleased with all they have done for my family. It is a clean, and well-kept community, they do a good job with the cleanliness.

    This is a lovely place in all regards. The facility is light and open and inviting. The individual apartments are quite functional and can be made "home-like". The staff are friendly and efficient and work hard to make my mom feel at home and even encourage her to call for assistance when she would be unlikely to do so. She has had some particular problems that made extra attention from the staff necessary, and they have been nothing but patient and concerned and NEVER complaining and NEVER making my mom feel bad for needing the help-I can't emphasize this point enough-the staff have gone out of their way to treat my mom with respect and personal attention. They also offer a wide variety of activities and have space for group activities as well as nooks where one can just sit and visit quietly if desired.Of course care like this is expensive, but for the price the level of attention and the general experience make this place a real value. I have seen other facilities and really none at this point come close to Elkwood.

  • We are extremely happy.

    We are extremely happy. He is thriving and he loves it. He is a different person, he's talkative, and making friends, and visiting. The food seems to be pretty good, I have eaten there with another loved one, and the food was pretty good. He even likes the view from his window.
