My father had planned on moving himself and my mother to The Elms. He passed away before this happened, but he showed us the place and even took us on "tours" of the lobby when he was still alive. He thought it was ideally located next to the Library and near the Senior Center.
I knew my brother would be able to visit my mother easily, since it was so close to where he lived. (myself and my sister live VERY far away)
I did "comparison shop" when I knew my mom would soon need to move to assisted living. She thought she should move to a small home where about 6 to 10 people were cared for. I was not happy with the size of the rooms n these places and very few people for her to interact with. The Elms really was the best choice. Compared to similar sized facilities, it was better in location and value, as well.
I really feel the people there are happy to be there; Residents and Staff alike.
Osiris "Osi" is a wonderful caregiver, and really a person I will never forget. Kathleen, also, is unforgettable and full of energy. Other staff members I have enjoyed interacting with; June, Scott and Maribel.
The friendliness of the staff, together with a low rate of turnover; every time we visited we were recognized and greeted as family.
We can not think of anything that we would with to see differently.
