Assisted Living Reviews for Elmcroft of Shippensburg

I visited this facility

We visited Shippenburg Health Care. It was very nice, extremely clean, and well laid out. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful in answering our questions. We didn't eat there, but their menu was lovely and had a wide variety of food. One of the residents spoke to us and said that the food was excellent. The rooms were well maintained and spacious. We were pleased with the layout of the room and the quality of the furniture. They had a lot of activities for their residents, and they had quite a social calendar. This evening, they had a candle lit dinner. Occasionally, they had dancing. My mother seemed to like it, and she would have moved in tomorrow if there had been an opening. I thought in every facility, there's always room for improvement, and the only thing would possibly be a little bit larger rooms.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Elmcroft of Shippensburg was the first assisted living experience for my grandfather. He was 90 years old at the time and remained independent after the loss of my wife. Upon our first visit to check out the facility the entire staff was genuinely nice. Assisted living facilities are often given a bad reputation but Elmcroft proved my family wrong.The set up of the facility is modeled after an apart setting giving each resident their own privacy, while also being able to be monitored by facility staff. The monthly fee that is charged to residence takes care of their utilities as well as services to keep the facility operational and rooms clean. My grandfather always loved games such as chess and checks, and there was no shortage of that at Elmcroft. The positive atmosphere encourages residents to enjoy their time there as well as each others company.I would recommend Elmcroft to anyone in the Shippensburg area. They helped my grandfather keep his independence while being cared for at the same time. They give assisted living facilities a good name and my opinion has changed regarding facilities such as Elmcroft.

I visited this facility

I volunteered at the Elmcroft Assisted Living facility in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania as a part of a college project. Every week, a group of four classmates and I drove to the Elmcroft facility to host multiple BINGO games. The residents of the assisted living home would gather in a large room as we read aloud the letter and number combinations, and the winners would receive small gifts. Upon our arrival each week, we were generously greeted by a member of the Elmcroft staff and were helped to set up our table at the front of the room. The staff then provided us with bottles of water and the prizes that were to be given away. They would then make a friendly announcement to all of the residents that BINGO would begin shortly. The staff at Elmcroft was always very courteous to our group as well as very respectful to the residents of the facility. The facilities such as the bathroom were kept very clean and every common room was kept very clean. Overall, my experience with Elmcroft Assisted Living was exceptional and I would recommend it to anyone in need of friendly and courteous care.
