Positive experience with Grossmont Gardens

We chose Grossmont Gardens because of the proximity to family, recommendations from friends and family members, and their good reputation. My dad was in memory care unit and his room was plenty big for what his needs were. The thing that stuck out to us most about this facility was the caring staff members. I would highly recommend.

Beating expectations

Mom has been living there a few months now. I spent quite a while finding the right place and Grossmont Gardens seems to be it. So far she loves it. I have lunch with her a few times a week and the staff is helpful, she likes the food and we've encountered no problems at all. The grounds are quiet and well tended - it's peaceful and mom likes it. This has met all our expectations and then some.

Sad but True

Yes our mother was there 4 years until while being pushed in a wheel chair in her room put her feet down and went head first to the floor out of the wheel chair. I couldn't believe the care giver could not grab her, how fast can you go in a small room? Any way huge lump on her head, next day throwing up, then went into a coma and died 11 days later at a hospice house. Mom had some dementia but was in good health, and was on no medications. perfect blood pressure. Never received any report on the accident. Not even a sympathy card. They raised her monthly fees $250.00 a month every year, so get a long term price at signing, because they will raise it every year. Where ever your loved one is, you must show up and be her advocate!! We are checking into all avenues of recourse so this never happens to anyone else.
