I like the size of Gardens at Escondido. The rooms were a nice size. The staff who gave the tour was friendly and helpful. The building was very updated and very clean. The community was very quiet, but it seemed to have a good vibe.

Gardens at Escondido felt like the right place for my husband. There were so many things that he liked. They had outdoor garden areas where they had equipment for sweeping (he loves to sweep) and then they had a movie theater. They also had Christian programming. They had Bible studies and Sunday services. Those were things that were very attractive to us. They also have a visiting podiatrist, which is pretty helpful. Then my husband has a private room and private baths at half the cost of similar facilities in the San Diego County area. He loves it and one of the highlights of this place is the cleanliness. They keep everything very clean and he loves that as well. We like the residents. They all look out for each other. It's so sweet. They're very, very precious (this is in their memory care department). We just love them. It feels like home. I'm a very healthy cook, and some of the food, in my opinion, is not the healthiest for seniors. There's too much sodium/high salt content in a lot of them. It is not particularly good, but it's fairly well- balanced. Every lunch (because that's the time I'm usually there), they have soup, a main dish with a side, and a dessert. So, that's good and snacks can be ordered when someone is hungry, but the food could be more nutritionally chosen for senior diets. That would probably be one of my few cons. Another one is that some of the caregivers, to me, are not quite as attentive as they need to be as to what's going on with the people. Some of them are outstanding, others not so much. They have excellent activities, but not so much for the memory care people.

Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to give us such thoughtful comments and compliment us on our building, services and staff members. We read and review all of the critiques and often use them as teachable moments. We will definitely pass along your concerns to the Dining Services Director as we pride ourselves on having a top-notch culinary team that prepares fresh and delicious meals as well as accommodating allergies, sensitivities, and dietary needs. May we suggest that you specify you and your husband’s food preferences directly to the Dining Services Director.

I visited this facility

I toured Gardens at Escondido. The room was beautiful, clean, and nicely proportioned. It was a nice facility. They had a rooftop garden, a library, and a bistro for coffee and socializing. The library and the garden were maintained by the residents, and so you can tell that there are a lot of positive activities going on. There was bingo going on, and they showed us a huge calendar of all the activities that they provide the residents. The staff were lovely. A lady took time out of her day, not knowing whether we were coming or not, and she was very sweet, energetic, and positive. You can tell she enjoyed her job.

Provider Response

Thank you Sherri for your positive recommendation of Gardens at Escondido! Our team is passionate about providing the best possible experience for all of our residents and their family members, and we are so glad to have achieved that today.

My wife has been at Gardens at Escondido since the 3rd of October. It has a homey atmosphere. We decorated her room with familiar items. She has her own bathroom. It's nothing fancy, but it's familiar stuff to my wife. The staff seemed to be caring and helpful people. When somebody wanders around, they take them by the hand and distract them. The residents watch movies and they take them out on a field trip on a bus. My wife does quilting which she likes to do, and they do exercises too. At this point, I like what I'm seeing.

Provider Response

Hi David, thank you for sharing your positive review about your experience. We have a full list of life enriching activities and will be sure to invite your wife to as many as she would like to do. We look forward to seeing you around the community and welcome you to also join into the activities as well. Thank you again we appreciate your kind words.

Was a bit worried with the situation at first but as soon as we walked in it was obvious my grandma was in good hands. Very clean, all staff was friendly and helpful. I look forward to my next visit.

I took the whole tour. The room was a little smaller than what my mom was looking for, but it was nice. The staff was very nice and informative too. They have a tiny courtyard outside and I was given a box of muffins for the tour.

It is a smaller-sized community, which is something we were looking for. It has a memory care unit and a great staff. They have a lot of activities daily and a salon, which I think is important.

It was really great. The people were really nice, and it seemed like the caregivers were really great. I've had the chance to go there a couple of times, and the people that give us the tours were really great. The facility was clean. It really had a lot of good things going for it, and I really wished we could convince my mother to go there. In fact, I made a comment when we were on the tour; I said, "Oh, my daughter would love to put me in a place like this." It was wonderful. We had lunch there, and it was nice. I liked the facility a lot. I would recommend it to other people.

I thought it was fine, including the staff, and had a good set of activities. They had a calendar which was pretty full with a lot of things to choose from which I thought that was good. The rooms were fine.

It was a very nice place. The staff was nice and friendly; I met one of the staff members before when I was looking for a retirement living for my aunt. The rooms were nice but small, and the place was clean and nice-looking.

I thought it is a wonderful facility. They seem to have plenty of activities for my mother, and the residents there seem to be very happy. It looked like they had good food. She is the one who will ultimately make the decision, but it looked good to me. I know of the place through my work because we deliver to their kitchen. Every time I've ever been there, whatever they were cooking smelled wonderful. They were clean, and they were very attentive. The apartments were very nice. We were looking at a one-bedroom, and they were wonderful. I didn't get into the kind of activities, but they do have various activities. They have everything from bingo to entertainment in house. They did have some stuff if you wanted to go out. If nothing else, they were able to provide activities that left the facility. I didn't really see anything that I thought that they really need to improve upon.

We put my father-in-law here, and we are very happy with the local facility. We are very happy with it and very comfortable. He has a single room on the ground floor. The activities include bingo and card games as well as local outings to local casino. He has been there for four months, and we haven't seen anything negative yet. The staff is fine. The food is great, and everything is fine.
