Customer Reviews

It has been a great place for my mother.

Elmhaven Senior

My parents are comfortable there. It has a very cozy atmosphere. Residents are very nice and extremely helpful.
Lots of things activities too.

The only negative aspect is the food. Parents would eat downstairs if it were. Residents have stated that it could be improved. Parents have a great kitchen so this (at this time) aspect is a moot point.

Friendly staff with lots of activities. Good food.

The facilities were pretty but the atmosphere was cold. The administrator jumped directly into pricing and was dismissive of some of my questions. She also said there was no availability upcoming and when I explained that I was told there’d be an opening in six weeks, she asked off i called last week because there was a new girl in the office and she didn’t know what she was doing so she didn’t last long and probably gave us bad information. A) I didn’t like how easily a former employee was thrown under the bus and B) A Place For Mom called the day before and confirmed an opening 6 weeks out. Regardless, we did not get a welcoming feeling from this place.

We truly appreciate your thoughtfulness and kind words. We LOVE where we work!

Great Place for Sister

I was very pleased with the selection of places they had us review. My sister really liked Elmhaven and she is enjoying her new 2 bedroom apartment and the other residents. She has participated in some of the activities and really enjoys it.

It would be nice if they served breakfast, but we make sure she has breakfast and lunch items when she is hungry.

It would also be nice if the washer and dryer was in each apartment.

Renee Williams

Local Representative

We are happy your sister choose Elmhaven Manor for her new home! The activities we offer are more exciting and fun with new neighbors. We suggest your sister take advantage of our local free breakfast/lunch program, stop by our office for details. Although the washers and dryers are not in each apartment, we do offer 6 laundry rooms and no laundry room is more than 100 feet from any apartment in the community.

Great tour

My sister did the tour of this community and she said that the staff did a great job, they showed her all around they took their time with the tour and answered all her questions. This was a very nice community but we felt that it was not quite the right atmosphere for our mom.

Renee Williams

Local Representative

Awwww, we wish your mom the best in her search for a new home. Please keep our community in mind for friends or family member in the future. We are pleased you had a great tour.

People Are So Friendly

Luckily my sister really likes this place even though she thinks it temporary and she will be going home. The staff and residents are extremely friendly and kind. She loves her apartment the only thing is they don't have the laundry setup in the apartment it's in a room down the hall. They only serve dinner but the food is very good. She is starting to do some activities that she can handle.

Renee Williams

Local Representative

We treat everyone's sister with love and care. It's awesome she has begun joining us in some activities.

A great place for seniors to live. There are no words to express my gratitude for our staff.

Friendly and welcoming!

We toured the Elmhaven Manor during their off hours so I don't really have a fair assessment, but one of the residents actually took us around. They were so welcoming and accommodating it was such a positive environment.

.....what a great testimony!

Very please with everything here; activities, movies, BINGO, crafts, etc. I like that it keeps my Mom busy & her mind active.

We moved in 4 years ago, my wife & I. 2 years ago she passed, living here with all the friends that we made helped. I really love it here, and we will never leave. It's home!

Very nice! The building is clean and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful with whatever needs to be done . Plenty of activities for residence to participate in or not.

Elmhaven Manor is an exceptional facility. From the office staff and manager to residents. The staff is respectful and kind to everyone, especially the residents. The residents I interact with love this facility. They have many great activities for the residents. I would recommend this facility to my loved ones and anyone wanting a great place to live!

I work for hospice and assist a resident [at Elmhaven Manor]. The staff is friendly & the environment is inviting.

[They] have a number of choices, depending on your desires or leisure.
You can choose your own friends, come out to see/meet with them and go shopping with them or join them for special activities.
Your agenda is up to you. We are always concerned about each other. The "cause and effect" formula is great for my daily planning.

I saw the sign-up front that said: "We Have Everything But You". Almost in seven years [I'll] be 90 so I wanted to find a place to live in on my own. Not my children's choice, but my own.
I do like the way of entertainment variety and the way [the facility] always appears very clean.
Some things I still have to learn but all-in-all it's a growing process

It's been 3.5 years of enjoyably living. A lot of things to do if you want. I feel safe and secure. The staff is great!

The people at Elmhaven are great! They make me smile when I'm having a bad day :-) I love coming to work to see them. The ladies in the office are awesome and very helpful.

Excellent personal they go way beyond the call. Friendly helpful understanding. Living here is like having a great big family. You feel like you've come home after a long trip. Feel at peace and safe. Lots of activity for everyone.

The building and grounds are kept very clean and safe. The staff are caring and very friendly. They are responsive to any problems or concerns we have. They don't pretend to care as they answer our concerns in a very timely manner. I hope to live here the rest of my years as this is my home.

my brother moved here from TX and really likes Elmhaven. It has been the perfect move for him.

This place is great .I really enjoy all the activities.

I love working here,they keep the building looking clean and beautiful.

I have worked at other facilities and this one is by far the best.The building is always clean,smell good and always ran me productive.They are the best!!.they have wonderful residents and the families are great.A whole family orientated place all one big happy family.

I love living in this community.I never lived in an apartment.But I see now how convenient an apartment can be.I can't drive any more But I love taking the bus.It reminds me when I worked and took the bus to downtown.I love to mingle with all the residents.

Great Senior Community!Staff is always willing to help the residents.Activities are amazing.Would/have recommend this community to seniors.

Finding a home for my grandmother

This facility was highly recommended by aunt. I went and toured the facility and I most say I now see why. All the staff were extremely helpful from the time my grandmother and I walked in until we said our goodbyes. Very clean and they have alot of activities for the seniors also which I liked alot! We made the decision and it looks like this will be my grandmother new home!

I am very happy and content living here.the office & maintenance staff are always helpful when needed.The building is kept clean and neat inside and outside.I have lived here 4 1/2 year and have never back to complain all for help.I would recommend elmhaven to people.
Thank you all.

I moved in 51/2 years ago.It was the best decision I made.The building is well maintained also the grounds.the staff is very helpful and friendly.I love the activities arts &crafts,coloring,parties,trips,all good,especially the arts and crafts.I have learned so much.They have the best person for arts &crafts.she is funny and talented.I would not want to live anywhere else.every day brings fun.

I toured the facility a month ago and was amazed how friendly the staff members and residents were. I was also impressed by the guest suite that elmhaven has in their facility that most senior communities don't offer. I would highly recommend this place to any senior looking for independent living. :-)

Super excited!

My mother in law has been searching for a place in the Waterford area. We happened upon this gem. OH MY! Our family is super excited about mom's choice to move here! She is now active both socially and emotionally. Her attitude about life has improved and she has made a few new friends. The staff has been more than helpful with resources and assistance.

A Good Place

My mom is still getting comfortable in her new community. There are activities available for her to try. Some of the residents have been help my mom around the community. the staff are nice but I am disappointed in the level of attention. The food is not good, I ate here and the quality of the food needs improvements.

For young seniors.

Elmhaven Manor is a very nicely appointed senior facilty with many activities. The hair salon, evening meal option, home health care option and private bus for outside activities are all great. However, I feel the management is overly concerned about resident's behavior that is outside of their "norm." If there is any minor issue they feel is a "risk", they will write it up and record in the residents file and keep a running list of any issues they feel may become a problem in the future. I feel they are unreasonably risk adverse to avoid any potential lawsuits. They also become overly concerned when residents stay in their rooms and not being active enough. I feel each person is entitled to live their life they way they choose to and privately. There are also several procedures, including fire safety and others, where the residents are not trained sufficiently.
This facilty is appropriate for seniors who are on the younger side of the senior age group and have no (or very minor) health issues.

We were very impressed with the facility and staff - the activities and other offerings seem to fill every need and concern we had for our mom.

Everything Is Okay

The staff here has really good hospitality and their cleanliness is superb. Their services are really good too, they are a caring staff. Elmhaven Manor is a nice and decent facility. Everything is okay.

Nice place, a bit expensive

We toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. Elmhaven Manor seemed like a nice place, overall. The facility was clean and well kept, and the staff seemed friendly and professional. How it was a bit more expensive in terms of cost to what they offered, compared to some options we saw in the area.

Nice looking place, not a great fit for us

We toured this community when we were looking into care options for a loved one. This seemed like a very nice place overall, but I do not think they would have been a good match for us carewise, they did not provide a high enough level of care for my loved one. The facility was beautiful, though. It was clean and well kept, and the staff all seemed very friendly.

This was the only place I found where my friend qualified for a Rent-Restricted program. His apartment is very nice, freshly painted and carpets cleaned. Any small problems are dealt with promptly and in a friendly manner. Activities, doctors, and personal care services are available at extra cost. Meals are very good.
Overall, we are very pleased with Elmhaven Manor.
