I really liked Foremost Retirement Community; it's the place I chose. I thought it was a very nice place that was very clean and had lots of activities for the residents. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were a good size and very nice and adequate.

Foremost Retirement Community was a much nicer looking place. It was bigger, and the people were very nice. The price is a little too high for my brother, but I would prefer going there if I have more money.

After looking at a couple of facilities, we chose Foremost for my Mom's care. At home her dementia was getting worse and she was getting depressed and didn't want to eat too much. After just 2 weeks at foremost we saw such a change in Mom. She was getting up for breakfast and enjoying all of her meals, and even gained a little weight. Mom took part in activities and even exercising. All of the caregivers are very caring and loving. If you are looking for a loving place to put your loved one, we recommend Foremost Retirement

Provider Response

We appreciate the kind words and look forward to the continued care of your loved one, and all of our residents. It is our extreme honor and privilege to be apart of there lives and there families.

My visit at Foremost was very good. I just did not like the locks on the doors. My mom did not have Alzheimer’s, so she didn’t need to be placed in there. It was very clean and the staff was excellent and very friendly. I only met their director and the receptionist, and they were very nice. We took the tour, and I would give that a 4. I just didn’t like the locks on the doors, but I guess you have to have that for Alzheimer’s patients.

Foremost was a great place, but it was way very expensive. It was way above what we could have afforded. It had all kinds of activities, and the people there were really good. They have different places of assisted up to hospice. So, it was great, but it was way too expensive for what we could afford. They had similar apartments outside the complex for just assisted-living. Inside was for people who needed more help. Both were very nice. I had not eaten there, but I saw the kitchen. I saw the food. It smelled, and looked really good. They had TV rooms in all the wings. They had movies. They had exercises, and all kinds of stuff there for the folks that lived there. They could improve on the price. It was very expensive there, otherwise, everything was nice.

Home of Foremost Retirement is nice. They are good. They do everything they are supposed to do. They are better than the nursing home. They help my father in and out of bed. They help him bathe. They help him with everything.

At Foremost Retirement Community, it started off at $2800. The facility itself in the main building was fair. They have an inside building and outside the building, they have a lot of little individual apartments or cottages and other people live in those. The staff was very nice but they didn’t know me; they weren’t as receptive. I saw less interaction. I didn’t see a lot of residents. They had an elevator, but it wasn’t adequate enough. Most of their activities were always upstairs. If you are in a wheelchair, you might get 2 wheelchairs in the elevator, and it goes upstairs and downstairs, so you better get there early to your party or you’re going to be number 10 in line.

Provider Response

I am sorry to learn that your visit to our community was less than stellar... However; you may be confusing details of our campus with someone else. We offer competitive care rates based upon actual care provided. No a la carte or 'surprise' billing here--EVER. Level I care for assisted living starts at $2600.00 per month. Typically, actual quotes for care are not given at the time of tours. A complimentary, home-based pre-placement appraisal is done to determine the level of care needed and ensure the most appropriate placement. You referenced an elevator in your post--this elevator meets or exceeds the guidelines established with the ADA. The size is industry standard. As far as the activities as 'always being upstairs' this is incorrect information. We do utilize this grand salon for resident banquets and special events. The elevator does travel slow and does operates in a much slower fashion. This was intended to keep slow moving passengers and those with special needs,safe. Give us another try. I would be happy to meet with you and discuss what makes FOREMOST a great place to call home.

The door to Dad's unit doesn't lock properly and the common area in my Dad's unit is not maintained well. Dad fell & badly cut his head open. Less than 2 weeks later, I noticed a bruise on his temple. He needs an alarm attached to him and a rail to block his falling from bed. Both of these things were requested two weeks ago but still aren't there. He's a skeleton. He should get supplements to his meals but don't think that's happening. Staff is great except for evening staff. They put common TV on zombie movies, do each other's hair, and gab amongst themselves.

Since Dr. Vangala purchased the facility, I have noticed a vast improvement in the quality of care, attitude of caregivers, amount and variety of food, etc. Having Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care all in one location was a real blessing for my friend.

They seemed to be doing their job at Foremost. The food is good, I have no complaints about it. The level of care that's given is as anticipated, expected, and so far so good. The place is very clean and well kept.

Foremost Health Care was recommended to us. It was best suited for my mother's needs. So far it seems to be working out really well. They're friendly and caring. The rooms are suited for the handicapped. It's a very good facility.

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

I have a friend who lives at Foremost Retirement, and it's always presentable. The apartments are adequate. The doorway should be wider because somebody in a wheelchair would have a tough time navogating. I don't think the interiors are kept up well. The staff is pleasant.

Provider Response

Good morning Linda, I am sorry that your visit to Foremost Senior Campus was less than stellar. I am not quite sure if you were referring to the apartments not having adequate wheel chair access, as we have regular apartments and we have 6 handicap apartments that provide all the wheelchair or power chair access that one would need such as wider doorways handicap restrooms and lower cabinets. If you are referring to the assisted living facility , we are completely up to code on all hallways, door ways and room space that a person in a wheel chair would need. Each person in the independent living apartments is completely free to decorate or arrange their apartment any way they like, If there are repairs that need to be made to the apartment the tenant just has to call me the apartment Manager Babette Fisher and I would be happy to take care of getting those things repaired. I am so sorry that you didn't care for the interior of your friends apartment, if your friend feels like there is something that can be done to improve the quality of their apartment please have them call me and I would be more than happy to help. If there is anything I can do to help improve your overall experience with Foremost Senior Campus please feel free to reach out to me M-F 8:30am-5:00pm at 760-244-5579. Thank you for taking the time to provide your input.

I visited this facility

Foremost Retirement has 420 sq. ft independent living units for only $750 which is a fantastic price. It’s close enough as I am able to be independent living, I could keep my part time job, and I could go to my church. The place was very clean, and the employees were very nice. I offered to buy lunch because I wasn't told it would not be provided, but then when we heard it was $10 for lunch, we said no. It was awful; the vegetables and the dessert was green Jell-O. I have never thought a Jell-O is a dessert. They had a piece of turkey which I could not cut, and the knife was so dull I had a hard time. They did have some staffing which was good, but the food was awful. The choice of drinks were water and coffee, but I don’t drink coffee. The staff was very friendly, very friendly, but the units were too small, and the food was inadequate.

Foremost Retirement Community was decent, nice, and big, but it was just too far away and too expensive.

The people at Foremost Retirement Resort were very nice. The quality of the rooms was not to the same level as others, and it was more expensive, as well. The dining room looked fine. We were impressed with it, at first, until we saw other communities.
