Assisted Living Reviews for Elderwood Senior Living at Lancaster

October 13, 2016

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

We found Elderwood to be the best; that’s where my mother was. We didn’t even tour any other ones because we found it to be a good location and just very nice for her. Elderwood was very clean and very organized. The facility had the areas that we were looking for. It had a nice outdoor space, a movie room, and lots of places and different rooms that residents can go to. They had a nice activity room. It was set up very nice. I think it really met all of our needs for my mother. She hasn’t been there that long because, unfortunately, she was there for 2 weeks, and then she got pneumonia. She was in a hospital, and then she went to a nursing home for rehab. She is still there, but she’s leaving on Thursday to go back to Elderwood.

I visited this facility

Elderwood was very clean, didn't smell bad, and seemed pleasant. The staff was very helpful and very pleasant, as well. My father was impressed with it. He's not ready to go anywhere, but he liked the place. I was impressed that there was a library on each floor, and everybody seemed to be happy. We had lunch there, and it was nice. The service was beautiful, and it was a good meal.

We ended up putting my mother at Elderwood. The staff is very friendly, and we like the facility and the people. It’s clean and well-kept. She is in a shared room that resembles a bedroom at home, with its own bathroom. They’re always doing stuff for the residents, like had musicians come in during Christmas, play bingo, and go on trips.
