Assisted Living Reviews for Eskaton Village Carmichael

September 28, 2017

By Peter Hayes

I am/was a resident of this facility

Food excellent. Assortment of entrees and desserts. Responses are usually good but not always best caregiving (slowness etc.). Good employees: cheerful, efficient. Good variety of enjoyable activities. Sometimes an employee walks in without knocking.

My father loves living here, and my brothers and sisters all rest easier knowing the quality of care he receives. The staff is wonderful and create a family like atmosphere for the residents. I would highly recommend Eskaton Village.

My wife and I moved into Eskaton Carmichael Assisted Living about 1 1/2 years ago from our home. Our first impression was "Wow!" It was like moving into a country club from its impressive landscaping, large pond with flowing fountains, and lush green lawns beneath a variety of towering trees. And the quality of service we receive here as residents is equally as impressive. The staff is exceptionally friendly and ready to accommodate us and meet our many needs. The food service is exceptional from its preparation to the serving. The cleanliness of the entire campus -- stem to stern -- is very notable. Activities and special programs are appropriate to our level of care. Management and distribution of personal medications assures health needs are met in a timely manner. An outdoor glassed-in swimming pool and exercise rooms are available for fitness activities. Twice a week a happy hour, with wine or punch, is filled with entertainers bent on making this a pleasant experience. In all, Eskaton does a great job of transforming the aging experience.

Eskaton was equally good, and the staff was helpful and pleasant. The rooms were smaller, but nice, clean, and well maintained. It was far from where I live. They had calendar of activities and offered shuttle services.

Eskaton Village Carmichael is a very attractive, bright, and cheerful community. The staff was very helpful in showing me around the place. I saw a lot of nice options and activities. I think this would be the right place for me.

Eskaton Village Carmichael was very well-appointed, it had everything you would want. I was not impressed with the food, and the dining room. I was not very pleased with the surrounding community. The gal I spoke with was very nice, and I thought everyone was nice too. They have a lot of space, and all the things that everyone needs. The place around the facility just didn’t appeal to me. The rooms looked very adequate, and very nice. I don’t have anything negative to say about the facility itself. I just don’t think it’s appropriate for our situation. The food choice was average, and the food servers were not extra wonderful.

Eskaton surpassed my expectations. I've been here less than a year and find it is a warm, friendly environment, with caring staff and lovely neighbors. I feel fortunate that I moved here. Camp Koloa Grandmother, previously from Honolulu

Kim, Sandy and the entire team at Eskaton Village in Carmichael are as amazing as the community they work for! There are so many living arrangements: from apartments to private cottages. The vast community offers a serene, park-like setting. The food is amazing!! All of my clients that I have helped move into this community are extremely satisfied and grateful. It is tops on my list for recommendations in the area! Thank you, Kim and Sandy, for treating our mutual clients so well and making the entire process for them smooth and pleasant!

Independent Living Reviews for Eskaton Village Carmichael

April 30, 2018


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

My friend was in the independent living at Eskaton Village Carmichael for six or seven years. It was too expensive, but it was good for him to live a normal life there and have his kids visit him. His kids could stay overnight in an extra room. His apartment was excellent too. He had three rooms in his apartment. It was very comfortable, and it could fit all of his furniture. He was happy with it. Everything was very nice. The staff members were very easy to get along with. They were very friendly. They knew my friend very well, and they were always there for him. I like the facilities too. They had a couple of extra rooms where we could stay and play cards. The dining room was very nice. The people serving lunch were friendly and very efficient too. The food was very good. It was well cooked. If somebody couldn't eat anything, they would make suggestions as to what else he/she could have.

We went to Eskaton Village Carmichael. They invited us to stay for dinner, so we had dinner with them and I liked it. However, it wasn't a comfortable fit like the other place I saw. The food was excellent. It was nice, clean, and quiet, and I liked the three levels of care because I want to go to a place where I could stay and not have to go some place else when I need more care. It was very nice.

Eskaton Village Carmichael is beautiful. It has an enclosed pool, 9-hole putting green, a very large cafeteria/restaurant, and beautiful grounds. The apartments were a little larger than most places. It was the best of all the centers I visited. The staff was very knowledgeable. The food and the dining setup were very good. You name it, they've got it. They had exercise rooms and classes, a huge hot tub area, massages, beauty parlors, and people can ride their scooters because it's a large place. They also have music, movies, sing-alongs, and plays.

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!

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.

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 have been a resident of Eskaton for a year and a half. Moving here was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Life is good!

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.

We are so thankful a bed was available at the Eskaton Village Skilled Nursing Unit when our Mother was discharged from the hospital. It takes a team to mend a patient and the Eskaton Village Skilled Nursing Unit is a caring and competent community. The care our Mother received during her 2 month rehabilitation stay in the Skilled Nursing Unit was exceptional. The CNA’s need to be acknowledged for their genuine concern, patience and attentiveness. The RN’s skillfully assessed her needs and kept the family informed of health concerns. The rehabilitation therapists built her confidence and strengthened her body. They guided her through challenges with humor and made therapy fun. The dining room staff was very courteous and always available to provide nourishment. The other staff who completed the team were helpful and accessible. The rooms in the Skilled Nursing Unit were bright, clean and each bed had a window with a pleasant view. The food at Eskaton Village was very good. And, the grounds are beautifully landscaped and a pleasure to stroll around. EVERYONE we met at Eskaton Village was friendly and greeted us with a warm smile.

My overall impression of Eskaton Village was that I wished I could move in myself tomorrow. Everything is very nice -- the facility, the grounds, and the people. They really make the residents feel like they are the customer, and they are to take care of them. The food is beyond wonderful; it’s outstanding. The rooms are large, bright, and clean. The kitchens looked like a miniature real kitchen from a house. They have a regular size refrigerator, granite counter tops, and actual cover. They’ve done things like some of the things and some of the facilities, like they would take the fiber glass tab and kind of section out of it. At the villages, they have a glass door that has a squeaky bottom, and it literally is a flat surface you walked straight across the tile into the shower without having to step over anything.

My parents are staying in Eskaton. We are not happy about it, but it is too late because they don't have enough money to go anywhere else. One of them was already in the independent living and then transitioned into the assisted living. It is clean and beautiful. The facility is pretty good, but their whole setup of selling a membership is very unfair and unkind to clients who aren't millionaires. When my parent made the transition to assisted living, they told us that they could have everything moved out by the end of the month, so we rushed, and then later they told us, "Well, we can't. He still has to pay the double rent for 60 days." They can't sell it to another client. So we rushed and lost track of a lot of things because they told us we would save him some money by hurrying, and now they forced 60 more days. My parents lost certain things and a lot of money, and they didn't understand that. In fact, we had friends who took a lawyer with them when they signed the contract, and the lawyer said, "Well, I understand it, and yes it is legal, but nobody who is not a lawyer or any potential client that comes in, they are not going to understand that they are throwing away potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars." Everything in the contract was apparently legally worded but not in plain English. The care staff is very nice, very cordial, and very friendly, but they are not good at self-initiating the actual assistance in the daily living skills that he needs assistance with.
