Assisted Living Reviews for Keystone Villa at Ephrata

I visited this facility

We toured Keystone Villa at Ephrata. It was very nice. The building was very nice. I saw the staff interacting with the residents as they were eating and it was very good. The only disadvantage it had in our case was that it was a little distant for my dad to walk from his room to the elevator and then to the dining. That was the only drawback. Otherwise, the facility was very nice, the staff were very good, and everything looked great. I didn't see their activities. I would tell others that the facility was very nice and well maintained, and the staff was good. The interior was nice. They seemed to have taken interest in the residents there, so it was very good overall.

Keystone Villa at Ephrata is in a community where I live, and it is fantastic. I have friends who live there and they have lived there since the day it opened. They rave about the place. It is just fantastic, but my parents could not afford anything like that. At 100 and 101, they have outlived their money years ago. I would be glad to put them in there, but no. It is a gorgeous community and the staff is phenomenal. The rooms look beautiful, large, very bright and very cheerful. They totally redo the room every time somebody leaves. They have a pub where they have entertainment come in and they have a happy hour there. They have a movie and a puzzle room. It is just like a resort and a wonderful community. It is also downtown Ephrata so residents can walk anywhere. It is an ideal community.

My Mother was very unhappy to move and wasn't very nice in the beginning. The staff won her over quickly. They were so sweet with her and took great care of her. I am so thankful we chose Keystone. Their compassion especially in her last days meant so much.

Keystone Villa at Ephrata is an excellent place. The dining area is very nice, and the food is really good. The rooms are immaculate. They take the residents out on trips, they play games, and have music. It's one of the least expensive places that we looked into, and my mom is really happy there.

My mom was a resident at Keystone Villa. The care was minimal, and the accidents were many. The food was redundant, cold, and tasteless. The independent floor which mom resided on was so independent that when someone was sick no one answered. The place is ran like a prison where residents are told They also have a dementia floor which they have filled with persons needing urgent care. Again those residents have no freedom. Yes, it's pretty, but, pretty isn't everything. Housekeeping in the residents rooms was minimal at best. Most people just look at the hotel like atmosphere, however, does an 89 year old person need a hotel ? Truly, there's no place like home.

I visited Keystone Villa. It’s very nice, new, everybody seemed friendly, and it seemed like a very nice area. I met a resident who said it’s the best place ever. The rooms were of nice size, and the grounds seemed to be well-kept. It’s a small neighborhood. They seemed to have a couple of things going on like Bingo, movies, exercise classes, and cooking classes.

About Keystone Villa at Ephrata
