I placed my mother at Elmcroft of La Mesa about 5 months ago and I feel very good about our decision. They were extremely helpful and sensitive to how we felt about the sudden need to find placement for her. She blamed me for her condition so I didn’t see her face to face for awhile but was made to feel very comfortable viewing her and the staff interacting while she settled in. The staff was very gentle and good at redirecting people and are always cheerful and full of kind words to the residents. I appreciate the help nurse Stacy and all of the staff have been. They have frequent entertainment and make you feel very welcome to come and join in to their festivities and activities. Their family nights are fun and the food was excellent every time I’ve been able to attend. The only thing I wish was different would be a bigger walking area for residents but that isn’t any fault of the staffs but the designer/builder. I would recommend this home to you for your loved one
