I visited this facility

Elmcroft of Allison Park was very good. The staff seemed fine also. The rooms were adequately equipped. They had different trips out, and they had one movie a night. I would recommend it. It was a ground floor facility set up in a square with open center for springtime. They have cook outs too.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Elmcroft of Allison is close to both my sister and me. We liked the fact that everything is on one floor and that the facility is not too big. The room is a nice size so it is like having a normal living room. My mom is able to have her bed, furniture, and dresser in there. They provided the bed and the wardrobe, so there was a lot of benefit in that. The staff is very nice and very accommodating. Everything has been fine. They had an open house over Christmas, and they had a very nice buffet setup for everybody. They do Wii Bowling and play bingo. They have a social activity where they do coffee and cookies. They have all different things on the activity calendar. The best thing about the place is a toss-up between the facility being in a good location and the quality of care.

I visited this facility

Elmcroft of Allison Park looked fine. It was clean and well-kept. The environment was warm. It also looked nice and welcoming. The facility itself was medium-sized. It was not so big that it's overwhelming. They're only one-level floor. They have shared rooms and individual rooms. The dining room looked nice. They offer respite care and they have some rooms available for it. At some other places, they don't have rooms available for respite. Some residents looked okay but some were in their wheelchairs and some have dementia. However, when I went there to have church services, there were activities going on.

I visited this facility

We didn't like Elmcroft when we visited the facility. Its old and it needs to be updated. It was kind of dingy and dreary. They really need to renovate the facility. They need to renovate their community spaces, their dining area, and the hallways, but what I like about this facility is that the people were extremely nice although I wouldn't place my father-in-law there.
