I visited this facility
Elmcroft of Altoona was great. The facility and people were good. They very seldom have vacancies. Their medical outlook is level 2 or above. They don't have a pool, but they have a huge garden in the back in which they let the residents garden. They have a crafts room, a library, and televisions around the place, and the people are super friendly. The food was great. I got to meet the chef, went to a dining room, and sat down with a family. There were two residents there, a man and his wife, and their two grandchildren. They introduced me to them, sat me down, and made me feel welcome. You could tell that all of the patients knew all of the staff by name. They have a lot of long-term customers there, and the last time they hired a staff member was six years ago, so they're not having a turnover in the staff. The bathrooms at Elmcroft are more geared toward taking care of elderly people.
