I have lived here for almost 3 years and I am very happy. The living quarters are quite comfortable. The food is excellent. All of the employees are extremely helpful and friendly. They provide free transportation to a grocery store, banks, doctors and other places. There are free classes, such as Brain Gymnasium and exercises. A large variety of musical entertainment is provided as well. There are also amenities provided daily. It includes free coffee, tea, fruit and sweet treats.

I am very happy living at Eskaton Lodge. The food is very good and excellent service. There are excellent exercises 5 days a week. The staff is very courteous and helpful. We have many outside events and many activities to participate at home. Great place to live. Five stars.

EML has exceeded every expectation I had. At the same time, my reservations have been put to rest. The staff is small, but exceptional in their varied duties and talents. They are all kind and have a needed sense of humor. The kitchen quality had been such a wonderful surprise. We are all very fortunate to be in such good hands.

The people are so friendly. We are comfortable. The people who work here should feel good about their work. We love the putting green, the garden and its flowers. We like the food, we have lots of choices. We are looking forward to using the jacuzzi.

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

I visited this facility

I liked Eskaton. It was one of the biggest places, and the living room space was nice. The people were very nice. They had a community garden for the residents. However, it was too far from me, and I wanted to be close to mother. The general atmosphere was very friendly, and some of the people that I ran into were friendly and seemed happy.

Mike helped with pictures and furniture and did a great job. My dad thinks Mike is the best!

There are people here I know and enjoy. I don't have to worry about getting my own meals. I have lunch and dinner here. It gets me out of the room talking and socializing. I like being social. The activities are delightful.

Everybody is friendly and accommodating. Dinners are great, fantastic, especially the soups. When I want something done, it gets done. If I have any questions, they get answered. Couldn't get me out of my studio if you tried, it's just comfy.

I knew I would eventually come here. I have not been disappointed. I wouldn’t want to be any other place else at my age. I consider it home. This is about the best place I could have found to stay and I have never regretted it.

I enjoy living here. I like just about everything. I like the freedom, the friendships, the cleanliness, the thoughtfulness.

The services are great. If you have problems, they come quickly. The food service is as good as can be, feeding 100 people and all. The people are very caring.

Eskaton is sort of like living abroad a cruise ship. I have good friends, they feed us well and e have good entertainment. It’s just a great place to live. You walk around and see people smiling at Eskaton Monroe Lodge.

My mom lived at Eskaton for a little over two years. This is a wonderful facility. There are only 100 residents so everyone truly knows you and it is a very closely knit family. It is a very caring facility that is very well kept, the food is truly delicious, and the activities are endless. You can stay very busy with their daily activities and cultural events. The staff if very caring and proactive. I would definitely recommend this facility to anyone.

They are responsive when it comes to our building and personal needs. The balance of comfort for “home” setting and sophistication (for example dining quality & amenities) is most appealing. The staff and management are attentive and easy to relate to.

I am/was a resident of this facility

My first introduction to the Lodge was the staff who was all very friendly and eager to help me. I was shown and told the location of everything I might need or activities I might want to join. It felt like everyone knew my name. Making friends with other residents was easy. Everyone has been so friendly.

I wish to thank Mrs Benjamin for her excellent service to the residents of Eskaton. She has wonderful patience with the people. She is accommodating on all issues and is very fair in dealing with everyone. She has an open door policy and cares about the happiness of the residents. Great place!

My mother lived at Eskaton Monroe Lodge for 14 years. As her only daughter, my experiences at the Lodge were extensive and extremely positive. What a special place, primarily because of the excellent staff and the delicious food. Yes, what a surprise that the food at such a senior facility would be soooooo good. The planned events are perfect for the residents, with concerts, exercises, special dinner theme events, trips to shopping, special speakers, fashion shows, wine tasting, and so on. Mom had to give up her car after living at the Lodge about 4 years, but for the next 10 years, she was able to easily get rides to doctors' appointments, outside luncheons, theater plays, etc. I know this may seem trivial, but the way the Lodge is decorated for all the holidays, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas, is amazing. At least one or more of the staff has an artistic eye for decor. One more thing, every resident is provided a life alert type of button to wear around the neck. Thank goodness because Mom needed to push that button on two different occasions in the middle of the night and staff were there in moments, followed by the ambulance and a call to me. When my husband and I need more services as we age, we plan to move in to the Lodge. Hence, the five star rating.

I visited this facility

Eskaton was OK although I wasn’t able to see what the living spaces looks like as they didn’t take me anywhere near the living spaces. I only got to see the common areas, and the other thing is they didn’t know that I was coming. When I got there, there had been an appointment for me to come, but the information got lost. However, the staff was friendly, and the gardens outside really stood out.
Provider Response

Thank you for visiting Eskaton Monroe Lodge. We are happy to read you enjoyed the gardens. We are sorry you were only able to view the commons areas on the ground floor. You are invited back to tour the residential apartments any time. During a tour you can expect to meet an Eskaton ambassador, a resident who will show you their apartment and answer question on what life is like at the Lodge. It also gives you a friendly face to call upon when you join us at our community. Please call Tristin or Scott at 916-441-1015 to schedule the tour.

Eskaton is very nice and clean. My mother stays there now. She has a small apartment with a small kitchen and small bath. The staff are very caring and very patient. The food is OK, but she said it is not that great.

My father-in-law lived at Eskaton Monroe Lodge for a little over a year. The staff there were amazing. They could not have been more helpful getting him moved in and moved out and on an everyday basis throughout the year. We had started his move during a health crisis and immediately realized that he’d need more services than were provided in an independent living facility. The staff helped us bring in additional care and helped us maintain it and keep tabs. During the year they put a huge amount of work into helping him meet the requirements of his long term care policy, minimize his cable bill and adjust to life without a car. They were always available to us by phone, email or to meet in person. The facility is very pleasant, clean and well-maintained – they always go all out decorating for holidays. My FIL had one meal a day included with his rent. He always chose dinner and when we would visit we were always happy with the food. Meals are served restaurant-style at tables of four. My FIL is pretty shy so it worked out well that the dining room staff regularly sat him with three super sweet women. When he wasn’t well enough to go downstairs he could have his meals brought to his apartment for a small fee. There is a wide variety of activities for residents to choose from on a daily basis (field trips, exercise class, “Koffee Klatch”, bingo, musical performances, etc.). There are also storage spaces, a driver available on certain days to run errands, very friendly front desk help and an onsite hair salon. I don’t know what we would have done last year without the support of the Eskaton Monroe Lodge staff.
