Beautiful grounds with lots of plants and flowers. Roomy apartment. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
I don't require medical care. I'm home-bound in my apt so I don't see the grounds or activities. Everyone I do see are very nice. Still having problems getting 1 meal a day delivered to me. ( after 18 months). Lots of staff turnover. But overall I'm happy here.

Great Value.
Lower cost for value. Responsive when called or questioned. Food is unappealing to look at. Very little color in the dishes. One dinner cauliflower, chicken with a sauce (same color as cauliflower), and I think mashed potatoes? I remember thinking this whole dish is off-white. My Father in Law hates the food and asks for a hamburger everyday, which they supply, but probably not so good for him.

So far it has been a great experience
So far I rate them all a 5. We are having a good experience. It is easy to come and go. I can go straight to her apartment with out going through the office. It makes it a lot easier. Apartments are a good size for her oxygen. She has everything she needs in her room.

Great facility
A very competent and well run business is Grossmont Gardens. We checked out this assisted living home for our parents and were very impressed with the staff's professionalism and knowledge. The facilities are also quite clean, and the food is both varied and delicious. They were able to provide us detailed responses to all of the queries my family had. They are always kind, never irritable, and take care of all of our problems! Despite the fact that they were very content living at [removed], we consider ourselves fortunate to have found this house and that our parents appreciate it. That is all that matters.

Our family had an in person tour with Grossmont Gardens and it was nice. Nice area as well. Somewhat expensive for my sisters budget. But I did negotiate a lower price but then [community name removed] called and said they had an opening and my sister opted for that. But it was a nice place, nice rooms and friendly staff.

Grossmont Gardens was a great fit for my dad.
My family and loved one had a good experience with the community. The staff was caring. Everyone seemed to be friendly. We would suggest you check in with the staff often to make sure things are going well for your loved one. Overall, this is a community you should check out to see if it would be a good community for your loved one.

We picked this community, because of the location, cost, and services. They have a nice facility, nice staff, good caregivers, a great location, and average meals. They need improvement with communication-avalability to solve issues.

Positive experience
The room my loved one had was spacious & clean; trash is emptied daily. Friendly staff; knowledgeable & responsive to questions/concerns. I don't believe they have a minimum stay for respite; strictly month to month, unlike other places we looked into. My mom was there for two months and gave a 30-day notice at the end of the first month there.

The communication is stellar, everyone is welcoming and friendly, the staff extremely competent. The only "issue" is my loved one seems to have an occasional meal that they don't like. HOWEVER, there is an alternative menu they can choose from if they remember. I picked this community, because of the location, cleanliness, staff, and activities.

about Grossmont Gardens

Grossmont Gardens offers Studio and 1 Bedroom. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Grossmont Gardens 9.4 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
