My aunt is in Elmcroft of Cottonwood, and it’s nice. The only bad thing that my aunt says is that sometimes they don’t come right away when she calls for a shower or to help her out. The staff seem to be nice, pleasant people. They play bingo, and my aunt told me about physical therapy, arts and crafts, birthday parties, and entertainment on certain days. My aunt’s room is kind of small but adequate. The place is very nice and quiet. I guess they should have a few more employees to be able to give more one-on-one time with the patients.

Elmcroft were able to address all of our questions. They were very knowledgeable and explained all of the fees. From the outside it, appeared to be a very nice facility.

The rooms were very nice, and there were not enough staff to help when she had problems that she needed help with at night, but otherwise during the day they were just really nice, and they did a good job with her. She was happy that we actually tried taking her back home after she was there because she seemed to be doing so much better, and then we had in-home care that we just paid for privately to come in and help her; then, she deteriorated more. It was a studio room, it had a mini fridge, little cabinet, a bathroom, and one open space, and she thought it was adequate I think. It was big enough to have a couple in there to visit. Elmcroft was homey with private little alcoves where you could read a book or have family visiting and still have privacy in a larger area. The management there was awesome too.

The people were very nice at Elmcroft of Cottonwood. The place looked very clean, neat, and well taken care of. I met several people there, and all of them were really helpful.

I really didn’t care about Elmcroft of Cottonwood. It had an aura of a nursing home to it more than independent living. It had a smell, it was gloomy, and I wasn’t impressed with it at all. I didn’t see people being active around there.

Elmcroft is geared towards making the best out of each person’s life from what I’ve seen. They have a really good program geared towards keeping the seniors active and doing things, so I really fell in love with the place. This place is not fancy whatsoever. Simple rooms -- nothing but a little fridge, a sink and a bathroom. Very clean as far as the rooms. Highly recommended. They have restaurant-style dining, they do really well on their cooking, and everybody gets to choose what they want. They have lots of activities. Very caring, very friendly. The staff is really amazing. It’s the people there that make it, not the place.

The staff at Elmcroft of Cottonwood was wonderful. However, the rooms were not nearly as nice as at the other facility I visited. They had just efficiency kitchens, and that would not have met my brother's requirement at all. Nevertheless, if my brother needed assisted living, I would consider this place more. I like best their staff. They were very personable and helpful in any way that they could be. We were shown the cafeteria. The dining room was very spacious with very nice dining tables, etc. It was very clean. The staff there again was very friendly. They showed us the menu, and it seemed to be very varied.

I thought Elmcroft was nice, and I liked the management I spoke with. I didn't think that the facility and the size were a good fit for my parents and their personalities. However, from what I saw it was nice, and the rooms that I saw were clean.

My mother and father recently moved into Elmcroft. I had been continually impressed. The staff is always kind, loving and knowledgable. They are ready to help or talk to you whenever you need. my parents are happy and so am I.

Elmcroft was good. They were very courteous about giving us information and advice on what to be looking for. But we prefer a smaller community, and it didn't feel quite as homey. The rooms were very nice. They were a little bit more expensive.

My mother lived there and i could not have been happier. There are so many caring people here and the staff really took excellent care of mom. I love the director there "Bennie" and the nurse Irene. I visited there a week ago to see moms friends and it is more lovely than before.Everything looks new. Of all the places we checked for mom, the staff here are the Best. I missed them so much as they became family.Also Amanda is also a greaqt nurse also.

My loved one stayed here

The place is wonderful. Food is great. the staff is attentive and caring. My mom is there now and she likes it a lot after being alonefor 6 years on a farm. She enjoys the activities and the companionship of others. The thing that impresses us the most is the staff is the same as when she went there 2 years ago. -- we have gotten to know the caregivers. How great it that!!
