Assisted Living Reviews for Elmcroft of Sherwood

February 20, 2015

By Susan100814850

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We decided to place my brother in Elmcroft of Sherwood. He is mentally ill, and the price has gone up to more than his monthly income, so it's really too expensive, but they're working with us and keeping it below his monthly income. I would recommend it because they give a personal touch to their clients. They meet his needs. With his mental illness, he requires some different handling than most of their clients, and they are willing to do that. For instance, the fire drill is very difficult for him, and the director goes and stands with him during the fire drill. I've never eaten their food, but my brother is satisfied with it. He is in assisted living, but he doesn't really need all of that nursing care, so I was hoping to get him into the independent care.

My visit at Elmcroft was fine, and I enjoyed it. The staff was quite realistic. I only saw one room, and it was not going to be large enough, but it was fine. There was a religious service going on as part of the activities, and when I went there they were signing up for an upcoming craft.

The first thing I noticed is Elmcroft was gorgeous and beautiful, it was nice; it's assisted living. It's apartments, and they're up to date. They give them a lot of independence. But there's not nearly enough staff to take care of people like my mother. They can have microwaves and refrigerators. Mom has two refrigerators, but mom doesn't need a microwave because she'll put it on for 30 minutes instead of 30 seconds. They have what they call a courtyard. The building is built in a square, so they can go out and be in the courtyard but not escape. They have physical therapy there. They have a beauty shop where they can get their hair done, and also they do shopping trips. One thing that they do there is they try to find out what their dream was like, what did you always wished you could do. One lady always wished she could paint like an artist, and they brought somebody in to do an art class and let everybody do their own picture.

I visited this facility

The facility is very clean and nicely appointed. The entry area is not just a facade like other places but truely an inviting area and carried through out the facility. If you are contemplating coming here or looking for a place for a loved one, it would be very difficult to find a nicer facility or a more helpful staff.
