Nursing Home Reviews for Eskaton Care Center Manzanita

February 01, 2018

By Coleen

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My dad has been here over a week and I am so impressed with his care. He is improving and we are grateful. He even likes the food! In addition to liking the food, which was served nice and hot and with nice touches, the care and concern the Staff showed him was pretty amazing given all they have on their plates. I was there at dinner or lunch most of the time as at the beginning, dad needed help with eating. So I saw how nicely the food was served. You could see the care given to placement as well as quality. We would also visit regularly and many times I was there and the curtain was closed to ensure his privacy and dignity and the caregivers would not know I was there and I could hear them talking to dad and it was always with care and concern. When entering the facility, it never smelled bad nor did I consistently see wheelchair bound people left in hallways (which we experienced at another place). The facility always smelled clean and many times like baking bread or cooking food – a very pleasant experience. In short, should I ever need surgery and after care, I would go here. I felt like while it may not look fancy from the outside, it was clean, had a nice atmosphere and incredibly caring staff – and that’s what matters!

Provider Response

Thank you Coleen for sharing. We are so happy to hear you dad likes the food!

Everyone here even to the janitorial service have been delightful. Each and every one has been ever so helpful with a smile on their face no matter the circumstance or request. I found the food to be good most of the time; a few exceptions. My only problem has been rest, but that was solved after moving me to another room, which I'm sure happens. So I give Eskaton management 4 stars. Yes, I have told other people about my stay here.

Provider Response

Betty, thank you for taking the time to review us and tell others about your experience. We love to hear our staff is full of smiles and always willing to help make a stay better.

This is our second visit here. My wife has had both knees replaced. The staff have all been very attentive and caring. We are very pleased with the care she has received here, and would recommend Eskaton Manzanita to anyone as a first class place to be. Merry Christmas! Thank you and God bless both management and the entire staff!

Provider Response

Thanks Tim for the review! We are happy to hear you and your wife found first class care with Eskaton.

In the time I was here at Eskaton at Manzanita, the entire staff here was great. The physical therapy and occupational therapist teams were awesome and truly promoted a quick and safe recovery after my injury. I would highly recommend this facility.

I can only say good things about Eskaton. I was there for 10 days. The facility was good. There's always lots of noise and things but that's just hospitalization. The people there are wonderful, very loving and kind. The staff was very nice especially the older nurses. I forgot their names but they were very kind and very knowledgeable about moving around. Because I wasn't able to move around very much while I was there, they showed me what to do and what not to do. The food was very good but I didn't eat a lot of it. I didn’t have the appetite because of the pain and discomfort. Because of these, I wasn’t into any activities too but I dealt with three of the rehab gals. They were very nice and very kind. They tried to help with the walking and rehab and they did well with that. I am not completely healed but everything is doing okay. I am actually walking without support and feeling much better now.

Kristine E. (physical therapist) made a difficult and painful necessity (physical therapy) an enjoyable experience (as much as that is possible!). She was very knowledgeable and gave me many tips to make my workouts more bearable for me. At the same time she was very friendly and personable. I highly recommend her.

Our family's experience was nothing short of an answer to prayer. My 93 yr old mother was treated with respect and cared for on a very professional and caring level. Virtually every person in every dept was friendly, helpful and took the time to answer every question, with a smile. You deserve the highest rating!

The services that I received are very good. About 10 days ago, I came here on a hospital bed, and now I am going home walking. Thanks to God, and the care that I received here at Eskaton from all the staff. They all are very wonderful and caring. Thank you all very much. God bless you all!

My mom Betty is a patient here. I want to complement the service and courtesy we have received, especially from your administrative staff. Many thanks to Ms. Mahin K."s personal attention to my Mom. Also, Meridith and Shirley for outstanding physical therapy regiments and routines.

My husband stayed here for a brief period of time after surgery and at first I hated it...seemed run down, sparse staff on weekends, but I must say, the place really grew on me... Lots of activities for everyone to do.. I absolutely can't say enough about the staff, they were amazing. Carmela always made sure my husband had what he wanted to eat and even brought snacks in for everyone staying there. The staff were always helpful and kind. Sheila was very informative upon discharge and Tania the discharge planner was very helpful as well.

I visited this facility

Eskaton Care Center Manzanita seemed clean, but it didn't impress me because it had a rundown hospital atmosphere, especially the rooms. It seemed very old. The person there was very helpful, took us around, and showed us everything. They were playing bingo. Maybe they can update it. I don't even recall there being a door in the bathroom. It seemed like a curtain.

Very professional staff on all levels of care. Enjoyed the meals and the snacks provided throughout the day. Was there over the holiday season and found the atmosphere festive. The only constructive comment I would make is that the doors to the rooms are left open throughout the day and there is a lot of noise from the hallway, especially by the nurses' station.

My wife was at Eskaton for two weeks. I thought they did a wonderful job. I visited her there every day, and they were always very kind and supportive to me. If I had a question, they tried to get someone to answer it very quickly. I did not hear any complaints from her.

My friend stayed at Eskaton for 2 ½ months before he died. You go in through the door, you have a receptionist who is very, very nice, and they have a nice surrounding: nice, clean, and virtually odor-free. You have people who are very welcoming and based from what I've seen, everybody who goes there is treated like royalty. It is a little pricey, but if I had a place when I've decided I wanted to die and be taken care of properly, I would go there myself
