Visited the facility recently to see a dear friends mom. Definitely not what I expected. Beautiful grounds and very friendly staff. For anyone ready to move their loved ones into an assisted living situation, I’d highly recommend checking this place out!

EVP community is the best place for my parents to stay. Safety, cleanliness and quality of care are their priority. If you have concerns, they do necessary action right away. Activities and special programs are great.

My mother has resided at Eskaton for two years now. I cannot say enough good things about Eskaton Village and the wonderful, well-trained and caring employees. My mind is at ease knowing that she is always well cared for when her family is not with her. Lots of activities and excellent food. A welcoming and comfortable home for my mother.

As a volunteer, I enjoy watching the residents do activities that help them with their eye and hand coordination like balloon volleyball. Everyone plays along with the residents. Also the type of music that is played, the residents sing along and enjoy listening to it.

I visited this facility

I liked Eskaton Village, but they didn't have anything other than a little tiny studio cottage. You get into a studio and move up. I just felt it won't work because we would have to store all of our stuff. It was a very nice studio for one person, and it even had an area around it where you could put in a garden. The kitchen had a microwave and two burners and no oven. It wasn't a full kitchen. There wasn't much storage in the kitchen. They had a nice indoor pool with changing rooms so you don't have to go there in your bathing suit in the wintertime. They had little cars that can take you around the village to various places. If you don't have a car, they will come and pick you up. We ate there, and I was a little disturbed in the presentation of the food. I asked for some cottage cheese and peaches, and I expected a plate with a little dab of cottage cheese on it and a peach, but I got a bowl of cottage cheese with diced peaches on it dumped on top of the cottage cheese, liquid and all.

I visited this facility

We visited Eskaton Village Placerville. The only thing I did not care for was that the community itself felt like it was out in the boonies, and I felt "Oh, my God! If there is a fire, how can everybody go out?" There was a long road to get to the Escalon in Placerville. However, the people were superb. The place was very fresh. The activities really worked. I had not eaten the food, but it looked good. The menu looked superb. They had chefs there. They had facilities like rooms if you wanted to have the whole family group there. They had the same types of outings, and they also took people to doctors' offices. They do crafts and they had little examples of what people had drawn. I thought that would be fine. They also had a game room. They also had a movie room. If my mother-in-law had not chosen the one she was in now, we would be happy with that too. They seemed very competent. They had monitors. If somebody went into the bathroom like 40 or 50 times, then it was okay and alert or if nobody went in and out of the room, that was alert also. So, they were very into making sure that the residents stayed healthy.

Eskaton Village Placerville was great, excellent, and incredible. It was clean, well-maintained, and looked nice. The staff was very pleasant. I was very impressed. If we do have to move our grandmother at some point, that would be the place that we would choose for her.

My mother is in Eskaton Village. I like it. It is good for my mom. She is much more comfortable. It is a healthier, more nurturing environment. It is good. She has her own room. The food is a lot better than where she was before. I like the care. I like the staff. I like the overall feel of the facility.

I visited this facility

My first impression of Eskaton Village Placerville was that it was very nice and very clean. It was pretty and brand new. They are in a very nice wooded area. A friend of mine had placed her mother there. They have assisted living and then they have where you really actually need a lot more help. The community was beautiful and very clean. I had visited my friend's mom there and I just like it. For accommodations, the assisted living ones were like very large bedroom and very large bath. They did have a nice little living area and a little kitchenette that had a microwave and a little refrigerator. They were very nice. They also offered cottages and little houses with garages. They did have one-bedroom and two-bedroom cottages. They had high ceilings and they were really roomy. They had little cooktops. They were nice. Everything was clean and new. For activities, they did have all kinds of things. At that time, they were painting. They also had transportation that would take them to doctors, etc. I had seen the dining room and the menu. Actually I was impressed with their menu. My friend's mom has said that she does enjoy the food there.

I visit my grandmother several times a month and i got to know a lot of the staff at the facility. They are very nice and friendly. They look happy and enjoy their work. My grandmother loves the caregivers. She said they take care of her like a queen.

I visited this facility

Over the course of eight weeks I volunteered one hour per week at Eskaton Village, and despite my initial apprehensions, I found the facilities comfortable and quickly came to look forward to my visits. My principle task as a volunteer was to facilitate a Wii Games activity hour, other activities included Bingo, Art, and Yoga. Various off-site activities happened on a weekly basis, such as trips to the store or casino. The staff was very friendly and professional; effort was made beyond suiting physical and medical needs of the residents to provide a social atmosphere while respecting privacy. Compared to the old school nursing home this felt like a resort, no hospital type of feel in the assisted living areas.

Look no further, this is a very clean, beautiful and nice place for your loved one. My parents moved at Eskaton when it opened over a year ago and they are very happy with the caregivers and all the staff. Everyone is very attentive to the clients who live there. I visit regularly and I've seen enough to say they do an exceptional job.

When I first started looking for an Assisted Living for my Dad, I looked at 6 places. I was impressed with this community. I moved my Dad almost a year ago and he is very happy with everything about Eskaton. The staff is great including the Administrator who is very friendly and accommodating. I'm really surprised about the negative review. Anyway, I hightly recommend this place.

Mom loves it

It was very hard to think about putting mom in an assisted living facility. She lived with me for over a year and I watched her slipping farther away each day. We looked at a lot of communities and decided on Eskaton in Placerville. It is absolutely beautiful, clean and the staff is so loving and kind and very capable. Mom fit in immediately and is always saying how much she loves everyone who works there. She recently fell, when visiting relatives and the added concern and care upon returning to Eskaton has been superior. Her memory has actually improved since she moved into Eskaton. I'm sure her improvement is because of the added activities and socializing that the staff has provided. They are good at notifying me if there is ever a problem . She considers Eskaton her home .

So thankful my dad is here. Grounds are lovely, and secluded enough that you don't feel like you're in a city. Still close enough to town that we can take him out to dinner and spent the day with him. Staff is wonderful and attentive. Still have to deal with day to day issues, but him being at Eskaton makes it a bit easier.

We chose an independent living cottage at Eskaton in Placerville for my mom. The grounds are nicely kept, and the facility is beautiful and really nice. The gentleman, Neil, was very gracious and showed my sisters and me around, then treated us to lunch there so we got to eat some of the food. It was a nice visit. The food was great, and the dining area was nice and clean. The waitresses were cheery and acknowledged the people they knew who came in. When you put your own furniture and your own touch on the rooms, it becomes your home. Otherwise it’s pretty austere, but it’s nicely planned out.

I visited this facility

Eskaton Village was a very nice, large, warm community with independent-living cottages. They take dogs and they even have some homes on the grounds that people can purchase that are not necessarily senior-living facilities. The grounds were spread out, really lovely, and well-cared for. The location is in a rural community in the hills. They took me around the grounds and showed me the recreational areas, swimming pool, exercise room, and library.
