Assisted Living Reviews for Mariposa at Ellwood Shores

April 18, 2020

By Klutter Kutter

I visited this facility

Each time i visit Mariposa I am invited into a friendly engaged community where residents are cherished and loved. There is an abundance of caring staff to answer any question and help. The large main living/dining space is a wonderful place for the residents to enjoy their meals together. When it is not meal time, the space is always buzzing with activities. It feels so warm and welcoming with the fireplace and stylish but comfortable furniture. Snacks are always available. The sunny apartments are elegantly appointed with space for everything you need and nothing you don't. Upstairs, there is a gym, hairdresser, movie theater, and art room. There is list of activities for every interest and has something for everyone. Lovely comfortable library niches are sprinkled through out. These are inviting places to sit and read or have a chat with family and friends. Mariposa welcomes families to gather here and think of the entire building as an extension of Grandmas home. Don't miss the beautiful courtyard. Comfortable deep seating invites all residents and guests to gather and socialize. Just lovely. But the best thing I can say is how Mariposa really feels like an extension of grandmas house - warm and welcoming.
