Assisted Living Reviews for Elmcroft of Tempe

March 06, 2012

By azpropertymanager

I am a friend or relative of a resident

The appearance of the facility is very nice. It is clean and well kept up. They offer larger rooms (square footage) than any other facility we visited before choosing Elmcroft. Of course, the staff is very nice and attentive and make all the promises in the world while trying to sell you on their community. Some major complaints that my grandmother has is that someone will come into her room and tell her that they will return in a few minutes then she does not see them again until much later or sometimes not at all. She does not enjoy when a staff member comes into her room in the middle of the night and wakes her up to see if she is ok. She tells them that she was ok until she was woken up. Also, there is no flexibility when needing to reschedule an event. For instance, bath time is on a certain night between certain hours and if for some reason my grandmother needs to schedule a different time or day she is not able to do so. Also, the phone lines from the rooms to the front desk are not functioning quite a bit which makes my grandmother feel like she does not have a help line to someone in the event of an emergency.
