Assisted Living Reviews for Eskaton Village Grass Valley

February 22, 2018

By Emily T


My five stars are for the sales office, the clear communication and extra-mile helpfulness of Lynette and Yvonne. I researched this facility for my in-laws, impressed by Eskaton's many 5-star reviews. Sales teams can be aggressive giving you the upsell, but they were fast, thorough, and up-front in answering my many questions, gave a clear sense of the range of their options, and ultimately referred me to another nearby quality facility that might be a better fit. If you are at all curious about the place, I strongly recommend giving them a call.

I love it here. I've been here for 8 years. They keep us very active. There is always something to do, and the staff goes out of their way to help us whenever we need anything done. They are always polite and friendly.

They treat us well. They are very courteous. They do anything we want, we get within reason. It's a great place to be. It's home to me now. Seven years at Eskaton Village Grass Valley.

Thank you Eskaton staff for the wonderful loving care you provided for my mother in law. The facilities are first class. I have requested this facility for myself and spouse should we need to be somewhere other than our home

I recently moved my 89-year old mother into an assisted living apartment in the Lodge at Eskaton Grass Valley. From our first interaction, the staff have been great to work with; professional, caring, and thorough. The entire operation is first class and I think my mother is in a great situation with real caregivers.

Provider Response

Dan, Thank you for the kind words. We aim to provide the best care possible. As a nonprofit, Eskaton's vision is to Transform the Aging Experience and our mission is to enhance the quality of life of seniors through innovative housing, health care and social service.

I was very impressed with Eskaton, and we don’t live far from it. It just seemed they had more available all around, but I guess it depends on the condition of the person who’s there and if they have any memory of what’s going on. Eskaton would be great for people who want to remain active because they have a swimming pool, and there seems to be quite a few buses going everywhere into town. And they are right next to a high school which has activities, plays and music, and a theater. If it was me going into one of those places, I would probably take Eskaton. I didn’t eat a meal there, but it seemed like the menu was interesting, and they were really working on having good food.

Provider Response

Thank you Cynthia for the wonderful review. We've been recognized over the last 12 years as the best community by the reader of the Union newspaper and this makes both our residents and staff very proud. We are happy to hear you've had a 5 Star experience at our community too. Please join us for lunch by calling Yvonne at (530) 273-1778.

Eskaton Village Grass Valley had a nice entrance. The residents seemed to be nowhere in sight and off doing something. The rooms were OK. The dining area had a really nice view of the grounds. They had a movie room, library, and salon.

Provider Response

Jim, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. If you have a moment, please take a look at the activity calendar Our resident like to keep busy and often take advantage of the outings. There are also daily fitness classes, so make sure to check out the fitness center next time. We look forward to seeing you again.

Thank God we came to Eskaton Lodge in Grass Valley! It was Christmas. My husband was having trouble walking and I couldn’t handle alone. We signed up for a 3-month “respite” and settled into a lovely, spotless apartment where we could be together. I was still my husband’s caretaker but I had help when I needed it. Eskaton nurses connected with our doctor. They helped us call in PT & OT. We had wonderful meals, a comfortable bed, and were surrounded by cheerful, loving caregivers, and friendly residents. In spite of all the help, my husband continued to decline, but at least we were still together. We extended our stay past the 3 month respite period. When it was time the nurse called in hospice to make my husband comfortable, our family members arrived to say “good bye”, I was able to order lunch delivered to our room - for 12! And, Eskaton set tables together in the dining room so we could eat together. Thank you Eskaton for making a difficult time in our lives as smooth as possible.

Our heart goes out to your and your family.

I’ve moved my mom into Eskaton Village Grass Valley and am very happy with it. They have a medical staff that will administer her medications. She has her own apartment, so she can be left alone as much as she wants and still feels independent. She only calls when she needs assistance. Right now, she has been wanting to stay in her room and watch TV, so that’s better than trying to force her into a community situation where she is going to be depressed. I wish she would socialize, but the action is there, so when she wants to socialize at least it’s there. I like that she has her independence still and has her own space, apartment, and bathroom. I also like that they bring her meals to her room when she is not making it to the dining room. She has a little kitchenette, so if she wants something special, I could fix her something right there without bothering the kitchen. I think they’re great. It is a very well-organized business. The staff is very caring and impressive. This place really feels like it is there for its residents. It feels very homey and very comfortable.

Provider Response

Thank you Jeanette for the lovely review. The brilliant part of community living is that older adults can have their privacy and be social. Too often older loved ones become isolated in their own homes which can lead to a decline in health. Eskaton residents can choose to be social, or enjoy a quiet space of their own, and their independence remains intact without being isolated from the services they need to have a good quality of life. Thank you for choosing Eskaton.

Eskaton Village was very nice, large, and clean. The rooms were much too large for my friend, as she doesn’t get around too well. It was newer and more modern, but it didn’t have a homey feeling. I rate it as a 5, but it just wasn't a good fit for my friend.

Provider Response

Thank you for sharing your experience.

Eskaton Village was actually the one that was most impressive to me for my mom. My mom really liked this facility. This was the one that she thought was the best, but it was a lot more expensive. They had a lot more to offer. Their rooms were similar to the other facility. The one difference was that the kitchens at Eskaton Village were full kitchens, and that was a nice feature. The staff was great both in the tours and follow-up phone calls. They're exceptional. Activities would be a 5 because they were the standard that I was looking at. They have art classes. The facility has a swimming pool, and they have aquatics program too. It was just top-of-the-mark. Also, it was in a secure location in the woods, and their food was great.

We liked Eskaton Village. If my parents both survive, they may end up here. The staff was nice and plenty of them giving lots of attention to residents. The small size of it was a plus. My parents’ friends were there, so they already have a favorable impression of it. My wife and I visited and we liked pretty much everything about it. The grounds were beautiful. They have an attentive staff and happy residents. Everything was clean and the apartments were nice. It was great and probably the best we've seen. They had organized activities and field trips.

My relative is Eskaton Village Grass Valley. The staff is very professional, very well trained, and she is very much happier there than she was in the previous place. The apartments are beautiful and spacious. She is in a small apartment, but it is very comfortable for her needs. They have all manner of apartments available because some of the people there are not there for illness, but they are just there for retirement. So, there is a wide variety of people, activities, and rooms. It is just less focused on illness and more focused on activities and preserving memory and all that. The food is excellent. The chef is wonderful. They have very fresh well prepared food. The activities are planned for different levels of ability. All of the staff people are professional in their chosen area. So, it is well planned and well designed. It is one of the nicest I have seen.

My husband and I came to the "Yes I Can!" seminar at Eskaton Village Grass Valley. After the seminar, we asked for a tour of the community. Yvonne showed us around and answered all of our questions. She is so cheerful and efficient; truly she is outstanding! I own a real estate business and I would love to recruit her to work for me. My husband and I will return to Eskaton Village Grass Valley!

Provider Response

Barbara, thank you for visiting Eskaton. Yvonne was very pleased to hear your raving review. Unfortunately, we value her too much to allow you to recruit her. Keep coming back, you and your husband are always welcome.

Eskaton Village had everything. They had two-bedroom and one bedroom apartments with rooms like hospital rooms. The staff was great. The food was good. It was a nice, clean facility.
