I have nothing but high praises for this community. It has been hard to see my loved one due to COVID restrictions. Due to my loved one's medical issues, it is hard to communicate with my loved one. The staff is very polite, respectful, and knowledgeable. I don't think they have had any outbreaks of COVID. They treat the residents well. The community is very clean. The community will do virtual visits with their family.Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
They have given us thirty day notice that my mother has to leave. They told us they would be able to take her but now they are saying she needs to leave because her care needs exceed what they can offer.We were honest about how she is before she moved in and they accepted taking her as a resident. My step father was sent to the hospital and she was upset, the staff told us that the family needed to stay with her 24/7, which is why we moved into a community because everyone works. She doesn't eat very much and they aren't doing anything to help with that. My sister came in to visit and they had given her yogurt and it had been sitting there and it was no good. We change her sheets and quilt on her bed. We visited one day and her bathroom had not been cleaned after she went to the restroom and we had to clean it up. They keep increasing my mother's medication when her behavior changes and it worries me. They don't take her to any of the activities because they don't have enough staff. They are understaffed and the nurses make all the meals and do the housekeeping. This is worrisome because they are not able to focus their attention on the care of the residents.

We are sorry to hear that this has been a negative experience for you. Our mission is dedicated to enriching the lives of the individuals who live and work with us. We take this mission very seriously and we are saddened to hear your comments. What you described in your review is certainly not indicative of how Elmcroft does business or treats their residents. We are known for our compassionate, friendly, and experienced staff who goes above and beyond for our residents. We are truly sorry you felt differently and therefore would like to apologize. With that said, we do have new management in place and we are more confident than ever that we will continue to enrich the lives of others. Again, I am sorry to hear this has been a difficult experience for you.
So far everything has been good and my mom has been happy here. Everyone has been very friendly and accommodating. It is a smaller community with less people so they have more time and seem to care more. I would absolutely recommend to others looking.Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
