My loved ones like it there. Everybody is really friendly and nice. They like the activities, and they like being around other people and not being alone by themselves far away. It's a little pricey, but it's a pretty good place I guess.

We chose Elmcroft because of the part of town it is located in and it did get good ratings and reviews when we were looking. The apartment sizes here are perfect size for her and what she needs. The staff members are all very friendly and helpful. The administrative staff could use some improvement on communication we felt though. Overall I would recommend to others looking.

We were looking into moving my mom at the beginning of covid and we were not allowed to do in person tours. During our virtual tour, Paloma Landing was the most responsive and they were just wonderful. The location also played a part in our decision as well. The staff here is so kind and caring. When I call to ask questions, they are very helpful. I would definitely recommend them to others looking.

My father has been at Comino for 3 years. They take very good care of him. The early mornings, that he goes to dialysis they bring him coffee and corn flakes. A staff member is always a buzzer away. They help him in so many ways. His clothes are always clean, his little apartment is always clean. He get 3 meals a day. There are a couple staff members that visit him frequently. I would recommend Comino to anyone. Thank you for all you do.

We think this is the perfect place for our loved one even during the pandemic. They have small special events that take place, they have some activities going on right now like happy hour, door decorating, and movie nights 1-2 days a week. She has a two bedroom with a gorgeous view, she is really happy that. One thing that was important to her was that they have a salt water pool there where she is able to continue with her pool therapy.

At first I was very happy with them. As time went on, I was unhappy. They will not communicate. It doesn't matter how many times you call them and leave a message, they will not call you back. And that's not just one person. That's everybody there. For the most part they did a good job with his care, although at times I felt he wasn't getting what he needed. But it wasn't too bad. I didn't think they had enough activities. I was thoroughly shocked by the cost, but it was the same price at other places all over town.
