We are happy we picked Elmcroft

My mom really likes the food here and the staff is very friendly. The head nurse is very involved in the care of the residents and works well with the physician who comes every week to review the care plans for each of the residents. We really appreciate that when level of care changes, the payment amount does not unless it involves incontinence care/supplies. The staff knows how to motivate my mom to get out of her room and come to the dining room for meals. Once she realized she was going to be charged for each meal brought to the room, she quickly changed her desire to eat in her room. There recently was a turnover in some of the staff and it was a little bumpy at first, but things seem to have settled down nicely. Be aware that transportation to appointments is only available on Tue/Thu and there is no one who stays with the resident. They must call for pick up when the appointment is finished and it takes some time for them to get there. Overall, the place is very clean.

Best Decision My Mother Made

We toured this place for our mother. She was the one to make the decision and after walking around she was sold! The residents seemed to be very happy and very "engaged in the day". My mother asked a couple of the residents how they liked living there and no one had anything bad to say. They were very complimentary of the staff, the rooms and the activities. Now she makes it a point to let new people know how much she loves living there.

Great Place

This place has been a miracle for my parents! My siblings and I have looked all over Temple and surrounding areas and realized quickly that Elmcroft is the place to be. The place is clean, spacious and has great staff. They have a nurse there daily and she is very knowledgeable about all of the people that live there. The people that give the medications is friendly and makes sure they are giving the medications correctly. They have been a Godsend with reaching out to the doctor in my absence to get things needed for my parents. This place is the place to be if you are looking for loving, compassionate people that care about the elderly.

Mom's new home

Our mom lives at Elmcroft! We looked at several places and we felt this was the best place for her. The staff is friendly and really seemed to know and care about the people staying there. They have been very helpful with Moms medication, we have had to make some changes with the meds. We are thankful that the clinic comes to Mom to have her blood drawn, it is so hard to get her out and back home once a week for that. Thank you Since Oct for our Moms New home!

Great Place!

We looked for a place for our Mom to live after Dad passed away. We looked at several places and were most pleased with Elmcroft. Mom has a great apartment. The staff all know her and ask about her. They have a comfortable atmosphere. Mom is happy with her new home.

Elmcroft of Cottonwood is a very nice community situated off of Loop 636 near Baylor Scott & White Medical Center. While it is not one of the newer facilities in and around Temple, it is easy to see that the staff at Elmcroft take pride in, and work very hard in, maintaining and improving their accommodations. All areas appear very clean and welcoming and the room selections all seemed spacious, comfortable and accessible. The staff that I met along the way were all friendly and seemingly eager to please.

Nice facility but not as upscale as other places

I toured this facility while looking for a place for my Mother. I feel like this wasn’t as upscale as other places and it just wasn’t aesthetically. I found out there are two types of facilities when you look for assisted living. The type A assisted living is more for people who want to be independent and need help occasionally. Type B assisted living is for residents need more assistance. This is a type B community and I would recommend this place to people who need more help. The residents here are very friendly and they spoke highly of this facility. However, when I toured this community, they did have a waitlist.

We met with [Removed] for our tour. He spent a lot of time with us. Loved his love for the job and the people he worked with (staff and residents). We did not feel rushed. If you could clone him I think you would have a huge waiting list at all your facilities. Can't say enough good about him today!

I would give the Elm Croft 5 stars! My mother has lived there for 14 months and she loves it. The staff is very friendly and take care of her every need. She recently needed some different medical supplies and they took care of it without me having to ask! I would recommend them to everyone that needs assisted living! Good job Elm Croft!
