My overall impression of Eskaton Village was that I wished I could move in myself tomorrow. Everything is very nice -- the facility, the grounds, and the people. They really make the residents feel like they are the customer, and they are to take care of them. The food is beyond wonderful; it’s outstanding. The rooms are large, bright, and clean. The kitchens looked like a miniature real kitchen from a house. They have a regular size refrigerator, granite counter tops, and actual cover. They’ve done things like some of the things and some of the facilities, like they would take the fiber glass tab and kind of section out of it. At the villages, they have a glass door that has a squeaky bottom, and it literally is a flat surface you walked straight across the tile into the shower without having to step over anything.

We are so thankful a bed was available at the Eskaton Village Skilled Nursing Unit when our Mother was discharged from the hospital. It takes a team to mend a patient and the Eskaton Village Skilled Nursing Unit is a caring and competent community. The care our Mother received during her 2 month rehabilitation stay in the Skilled Nursing Unit was exceptional.
The CNA’s need to be acknowledged for their genuine concern, patience and attentiveness. The RN’s skillfully assessed her needs and kept the family informed of health concerns. The rehabilitation therapists built her confidence and strengthened her body. They guided her through challenges with humor and made therapy fun. The dining room staff was very courteous and always available to provide nourishment. The other staff who completed the team were helpful and accessible.
The rooms in the Skilled Nursing Unit were bright, clean and each bed had a window with a pleasant view. The food at Eskaton Village was very good. And, the grounds are beautifully landscaped and a pleasure to stroll around.
EVERYONE we met at Eskaton Village was friendly and greeted us with a warm smile.

From the moment I checked in, all the staff from admin to nurses, made me feel that I am their only patient. Your organization is the best I've seen in 10 years. Thanks to each and everyone!

My parents are staying in Eskaton. We are not happy about it, but it is too late because they don't have enough money to go anywhere else. One of them was already in the independent living and then transitioned into the assisted living. It is clean and beautiful. The facility is pretty good, but their whole setup of selling a membership is very unfair and unkind to clients who aren't millionaires.
When my parent made the transition to assisted living, they told us that they could have everything moved out by the end of the month, so we rushed, and then later they told us, "Well, we can't. He still has to pay the double rent for 60 days." They can't sell it to another client. So we rushed and lost track of a lot of things because they told us we would save him some money by hurrying, and now they forced 60 more days.
My parents lost certain things and a lot of money, and they didn't understand that. In fact, we had friends who took a lawyer with them when they signed the contract, and the lawyer said, "Well, I understand it, and yes it is legal, but nobody who is not a lawyer or any potential client that comes in, they are not going to understand that they are throwing away potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars." Everything in the contract was apparently legally worded but not in plain English. The care staff is very nice, very cordial, and very friendly, but they are not good at self-initiating the actual assistance in the daily living skills that he needs assistance with.
Jonathan, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry to hear about your frustrations with the Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) model. I appreciate you being attentive to your parents’ needs and looking out for them. Please know you can reach out to our Executive Director Greg Click, 916-924-2000, at any time to discuss any concerns you and your family have. Sincerely, Lola Rain, Director of Digital Media
