Review of The Springs

When I moved in, the food was absolutely excellent and was one of the reasons that I chose it. People who came to visit even raved about it. They have gone through many different chefs and the food has deteriorated over the courser of the year. The staff is very friendly and pleasant here.

My mother loves it here!

My mother lives at The Springs of Escondido and loves it! The staff has been there for a long time and are very caring and friendly. After things opened up in July, they have begun adding all of the activities, concerts, etc. back so residents are getting outside and enjoying the community (and each other) more and more. I highly recommend this community for anyone wanting a hassle-free life with people who care surrounding you.

Consider the Springs of Escondido

Springs of Escondido. Our mother has been at the Springs for over 6 years now. She is a nonagenarian cancer survivor with macular degeneration, and sometimes quite the personality!! The "facility" has renovated while we have been there, and done a good job with the C-19 procedures required. It is kept clean, the regular staff, cooks, servers care about the residence there, and really work hard. The management has changed a few times, but the Holiday directors have been helpful as well. The facility format changed, and is now more of a senior facility with no staff present overnight. The residents all have alerts, and hiring your own external caregivers to come in where needed is suggested. The facility is charming, nice courtyard, library, gym, and generally do a great job at plenty of activities and accommodating the residents. There is a shuttle, as well as activities scheduled out when possible. Overall, a caring - good - clean place. Let them know [name removed] recommended them :)

Highly recommend for your loved ones

My father, [name remove] has lived here for the past few years. It is a lovely facility and I feel that he is very safe and happy. The food is AMAZING, the weekly cleanings are so helpful for a guy in his 90s that likes to spend his free time enjoying life. The staff is so nice and friendly. I highly recommend this place for your loved ones.

Mom loved it at The Springs!

My mother lived at The Springs of Escondido two years ago and absolutely loved it! She needed to move to a memory care community recently but we always knew she was safe and happy at the Springs.
