I love how friendly the residents and staff are. The food is always excellent and beautifully presented. The wait staff are mostly college age and very attentive to our needs. There are many activities and committees from which to choose. Therefore, we are always interacting with others, keeping our brains and bodies active. I believe people live longer here! I consider EVC a "land cruise!"

Anita is wonderful! Knows both my parents by name. Makes sure they get exactly what they requested. Always smiling and friendly! She's the best! Food is wonderful!

We’ve chosen Eskaton Village because of the beautiful grounds. They have water aerobics as part of the fitness program. There are different meals plans, where they can eat one, two, or three times a day. The staff is very informative

I always enjoy eating meals at Eskaton as the selection of items is excellent and of delicious and tasty quality. The service is wonderful as staff are helpful and happy to serve. Anita, especially, is wonderful to my mother and me for anticipating our needs and greeting us as "family". Always delightful to be in her hands!

The apartments are really nice in independent living at Eskaton Village Carmichael. The rooms range from 500 square feet up to 1,200 square feet. The dining room is very good restaurant-style dining. It has a swimming pool, hot tub, putting green, and a lot of transportation options, like a shuttle that can take you to your doctor's appointment. They can also drive you using your own car to your appointments. They offer three meals a day, but Mom only pays for one. They have a full-time nurse and some really good professional people, as well as an Alzheimer's support group.

Anita is the best employee you have. She has done an outstanding job for 10 years in training personnel, handling residents and their families. It is a pleasure to stay here because of Anita.

We loved the Calamity Jazz concert, especially the bass saxophonist! She had no measures of rest and played continuously for every piece. She was extremely instrumental in keeping the rhythm and interesting bass accompaniment. The trumpeter was highly accomplished and added excitement to every piece. Also very competent were the banjo played and clarinetist. We loved their music. The audience members were clapping and smiling.

Excellent, professional, caring, my mom had been to another care rehab facility about 10 yrs ago. She couldn't stand it and demanded I get her out within hrs of arriving. She is being treated so well here. I don't think she wants to ever leave.

Toured this beautiful facility today; it’s very clean, spacious, and beautiful furnishings in common areas. Friendly and helpful staff. Shanti provided excellent, thorough information and even treated us to a delicious lunch at the facility. The food was excellent!

Regarding the entertainment provided for the residents on Thursday night, may 12. A fine piece jazzy band called “Calamity Jane” that was so enjoyable. They were excellent - played all the songs we had heard of, and we could not keep from tapping our toes and clapping our hands - wishing we could get up and dance. It was wonderful! Hope they can come back soon to play for us.

From the moment I arrived, I have been treated with extreme dignity in every way of care - food services - medical care. Every area show professionalism, clothing, speech, mannerism. I am a nurse and have never in a hospital like this.

Outstanding! I like the idea that “All Employees” get along here and I get a handshake from them.

Gea260520 June 10, 2016

Eskaton Village was not as friendly and a little bit colder because people looked the other way and were busy. It was beautiful. The rooms were comfortable and nice. You put your own furniture in it, so it would look the way you want it to, but that just didn’t appeal to me personally for what my sister-in-law would need.

I was impressed by the range of services at Eskaton Village. The upkeep of the facility was very good. I was interested in the little cottages, which were very nicely appointed. They have a pool.

She picked Eskaton Village Carmichael. It’s an expensive community. If you have the money you can live there. They have everything available to you. People know and care about each other.

Eskaton Village was very nice; it had lots of options and was very spacious. The staff was very nice.

I have been a resident of Eskaton for a year and a half. Moving here was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It is a very safe and nurturing environment with all at the extras one could imagine--beautiful friends, pastoral grounds, security, a lovely dining room, fairness center and enclosed pool, and 24 hour security. Life is good!

Eskaton was very nice inside, and the rooms were large. The dining room looks fine too. The activities were very good like bingo and crafts. I really like the facility itself and the apartments. The staff was very helpful and caring.

We liked Eskaton because it is less than a mile from where we live, and my father had been there before he passed away. They have gone through some changes, and I really could not answer even on a scale how they were other than my experience with them prior was positive. From what I understand, security was good.

This is a Disneyland for older adults. They WOWed me with the knowledge and professionalism of the sales ladies and everyone I came in contact with during the time I was touring. They have so much to do and see as well as many differnt options in living quarters. They have cute cottages. I loved the 2 bedroom cottages and before I left I put my deposit down and am so excited to be moving in this spring. I am so glad I found Eskaton Village.

I was looking for a facility that had independent living with its own living quarters. I have a dog and I don't want to live in an apartment with a dog. Eskalon Village had a little cottage that was available, one bedroom, one bathroom, a kitchen and living room. It was nice because it was like your own home. You're not living with someone attached to both sides or above you or below you. It was just an independent house and they were going to do a lot of remodeling to it. They're exceptional and very good at what they're doing. They have very helpful employees and the food is good. They provide a lot of transportation, meals and housekeeping. Everything about Eskaton Village was fine but it was too expensive. I just couldn't afford to live there.

It is a gated community which, in general, I tend to disagree with most of our cultural idea of how to care for our elderly, but they regularly bus in performances, and bus residents out to concerts, events, church, and the like. When I had to deal with staff members, all of them had a clear idea of their duties and who to seek if my questions were out of their knowlege base. It felt a little bit like dealing with the staff at a Disney World resort. Almost anyone was able to answer my questions, and they all answered them with the same, non conflicting, answers.
