This was a nice community when I took my tour. The community we chose seemed to have all the amenities we were looking for. This community looked clean and the people I met were nice.
I don't think they are geared to assist people with Dementia..reviewed on: 08/07/2015 by Anonymous
My husband has Dementia. I don't think they are geared to assist people with Dementia. That is my only main concern. I also think he spends too much time alone. They don't have any activities for residents with Dementia. They said they would make changes. The food is really good. I had dinner there before. I want my husband home but I think this is as good as it will get. They are suppose to be making changes and I am looking forward to that.
Very pleasant atmospherereviewed on: 08/02/2017 by Betsy Adams
We found it to be clean with a happy environment. The waiting list was too long so I don't know why they don't invite more people to visit their sister place in Auburn which is Brannan Park. They're new and only 1/3 full. El Dorado was organized well with plenty of activities and sufficient care givers. Their memory care center is way too crowded it seems but everyone is very kind and pleasant. We would have chosen El Dorado but the waiting list was too long and we needed a place right away.
Feeling unsure...reviewed on: 03/20/2017 by Anonymous
Things were going well at El Dorado West until there was an incident with my mother getting out at night. The staff isn't sure how it happened and believe a side door was left open.She has since been moved to Memory Care and with the exception of her falling once, I am okay with the move. Both of my parents live here.The staff is very friendly and compassionate.They offer an on-site nurse who oversees care.The food is also very good.It's a newer community and very clean. I was very pleased up until the incident with my mother getting out. I would have scored them a 5 but now I am really unsure.
