Assisted Living Reviews for The Elms Retirement Residence

I am/was a resident of this facility

I’ve been in The Elms Retirement Campus for 10 days. I liked the comprehensive services. There are all kinds of activities if I choose to join them. They provide exercise, movies, bingo, and arts and crafts. They provide transportation for shopping, banking, and doctors' appointments. The staff is very helpful; whatever you need, they’re there. They provide breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I think for the whole complex, there are 100 people in assisted living with two units for Alzheimer's and dementia.

The Elms was beautiful and top of the line. The staff was great and helpful. They had different rooms, including suites and apartments. I would recommend it to everyone looking for assisted living. Everything was just top notch.

I visited this facility

The Elms Retirement Campus was beautiful with a well thought-out layout. I really liked what I saw. It had more of a family room setting like your own home. The design was really meant for people who are severely demented. Their assisted living is separate from the memory care, and absolutely gorgeous. I love it. I thought I could live there.

This is a wonderful place to live. The food and the food service people are exceptional. I have learned to love my studio-aparttment, the handymen and the drivers are just great!

The value for money is better at The Elms. I did only see one room and it was nice.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I went looking on the web and found The Elms. We got the place because it's just within our area. They provided very good care for my cousin. He's very happy there. The people working at there are very caring. The place is just lovely. The rooms are fairly small for people but the rest of the place is beautiful. Their food is very good. There are only 70 residents so they cater very much to them. We're very happy with it.
