Good fit for mom!reviewed on: 03/15/2017 by Anonymous
My mother lives here and the staff is so attentive. She has had a couple of falls and they called me right away and let me know. Everyone is so friendly and they make you feel welcome. She likes the meals and enjoys them.They are having a family dinner next week. I chose Elmcroft because we were looking for a nice community and it's within walking distance of my house.
Difficult Directorreviewed on: 11/25/2013 by Daughter
My mom was at Elmcroft for 6 weeks. I moved her here because the last place was getting too expensive. During the interview they said after one month they would have a review to see if it was the right fit. She was there for 6 weeks. For two weeks they were on lock down for stomach virus and she couldn't leave her room. The director went in to her room and mom was just sitting in her room wearing a shirt and her depends but no pants. The director was making a big deal about that even though mom was just sitting in her room. The aids loved my mom but the director was difficult. The director called for a review at 5 weeks instead of 4 which meant they got to keep the community fee because it's only refundable up to 4 weeks. Then she said my mom is not assisted living material, she has to leave. The have a small activities room there. The whole facility is a doughnut shape so if you want to get anywhere fast you have to walk outside through the courtyard or walk around the entire facility. They have a fancy lobby when you walk in but none of the residents ever sit there because they won't put a TV in there. The activities director was difficult too. The residents were bored on Sundays so I offered to go in and call bingo numbers when I could. She wanted me to make a commitment to at the same time every Sunday so she could put it on the activity board. I can't commit to every Sunday. She just made it difficult to help out. I was not too happy with our experience there. The director just put me off from the beginning. She was snotty and there's no reason for it.
Releaved with Peace of Mindreviewed on: 10/25/2014 by Jeannie S. Williams
Our representative assisting was Jenny and she was wonderful. Very thourough, she helped me find communities that I did not locate of which was one that I choose. Elmcroft of Byrd Springs has been fabulious for my mother. She is 77 and I could not get her to eat right and we had a constant struggle with taking meds correctly. She has now got situated, made a couple friends which she is not the social butterfly and is somewhat a hermit!! Just walking was a chore for her previously. It is amazing, we can have a pleasant visit and she is even exercising regularly. Her mantality/demeanor has changed dramatically. Thank you!!! I think I may have the opportunity to know the mother in which I know she can be versus someone that has lived previously in misery. She has found her happy place I think!!
Nice facility but understaffedreviewed on: 11/14/2018 by Anonymous
My mother was a resident at Elmcroft for about a year. We loved the location and the facility was easy to navigate. I especially enjoyed the security offered by the locked doors. The decor is nice, food was great and the new activities coordinator is really trying to offer fun activities for the residents. I would caution anyone looking for a place for their loved one to remember that all facilities are on their best behavior when you visit. This is not my first experience with senior living services. Be sure to read the fine print and ask lots of questions up front. Elmcroft is a great facility, however, they are severely understaffed. Those on duty are multi-tasking and just trying to hold it all together and provide for the needs of the residents. I was in the dining facility one day on a weekend where lunch was served to my mother's table 45 minutes late because they just couldn't physically bring out the food fast enough due to only 2 staff members serving. I liked the direct service staff-RA's and nurses. Leadership for this facility needs to either hire more employees or engage in the direct services. Maintenance issues were slow to be resolved as well.
Safe environment with a friendly staffreviewed on: 02/21/2017 by Anonymous
My parents moved here recently and they are still adjusting. I think it's a safe place and the staff is very accommodating. They are slowly getting involved in activities while becoming more accustomed to their new surroundings.I chose this community because I liked the staff and the layout of the place. They were able to get a 3 room apartment here.
