Las Villas de Carlsbad used to be independently owned and operated, but it was acquired by by Elmcroft, a corporation that runs many similar facilities, shortly after my parent moved in. There has been a large employee turnover, with some of the best staff leaving. There have been large price increases, 11.5% this year alone. Elmcroft has refurbished and made cosmetic changes to the common areas, so the place does look nicer. But quality of care depends on the staff. If we had known about the pending acquisition 2 years ago when my parents first moved in, we would have looked elsewhere. We are now looking at other facilities.

They really have a nice staff at Las Villas De Carlsbad. They were very good about meeting us. My father-in-law requires checks every couple of hours, and we have to remind them of that. He is at the assisted living, and my mother-in-law is in the independent living. One of the reasons why we moved our parents in that facility was so she wouldn’t be doing so much. They do have a lot of activities. They definitely have bingo and exercise, which is really important. They have a nice dining facility, and I was pretty impressed. For improvements, I think probably they need to make sure there's enough staff on hand. The whole experience was very good.

I visited this facility

The food was good at Elmcroft Las Villas de Carlsbad and they had a nice salad bar. It's a large facility. It had three separate buildings and there were walkways in between. You could also walk around in the ground with flowers and green grass. The area is very open and it's very nice. The people were great. The deciding factor was the price and I just feel very comfortable with the facility.

My mother has been a resident for 3 years. Service and care have gone down while the prices have gone up. Started just under $5000 per month and no going to $6,200 for assisted living. We're looking elsewhere!

I visited this facility

I've heard wonderful things about Las Villas De Carlsbad. The person that we had made an appointment was not there. She left not too long before we got there and she forgot she had an appointment with us. As far as the place, it's nice but I thought that the person in-charge who forgot our appointment and could not come back turned us off. They do have a very high reputation in the area.
