1/2018 I moved my grandmother in, place was clean, full of residence, well cared for, there was an activity director, food was semi good and communication was decent. After staff and director changes NO activity director or activities ( yes they have a calendar -- fake) Food is no so good, place is dirty ( shoes stick to the cafeteria floor), residence are in bed all day and occupancy has reduced to half. The director does not return calls or emails. Skill levels on several residence was raised (no extra care was needed). Myself and a few other residence families believe they raised the skill level to cover the cost of the loss of occupancy and cover the overhead. I feel bad for the residence and also the staff that does try very hard to care for the patience but corporation cut cost and are running a company not a care facility!

Gladest day of my life when we left it was like going into a dungeon to get to dementia unit. They had no activities to engage the resident in. Mostly would stare at tv or one another .a lot would just cry this place is falsly advertised in everyway. But for the few good and caring workers there. Would never had stated as long as we did . finally we were on a timetable to get out by the new CEO Kim Z. No class or compassion. Just all $$$$. Hope it makes her HAPPY. How she treats people

I can't say enough disheartening things about this facility, from a family member perspective and from someone who works in LTC. If I had known Elmcroft was for-profit I never would have put family there from the beginning. They've been on a provisional license and it has not been lifted. The amount of guilt on my shoulders knowing my loved one is stuck here is unexplainable. I have been trying for WEEKS to get ahold of a staff member via phone and every single time you call, no matter what time of day, you're lucky if someone picks up after 5 entire minutes of waiting (trust me I've kept track). And if someone does finally pick up, you will then wait another 5 minutes until someone in heartland Village answers, just to be rushed off the phone. But after probably 20 times of trying just this past few weeks I give up. So there is no one to voice your grievances to and no paper forms available. No matter how many times you tell a nurse or aide your contact info and to please reach out you when your loved one falls or anything notable happens, you will hear nothing. Over a year ago an aide on heartland Village never even reported a major fall with my loved one and told me he just lowered them to the floor and that it was "nothing to be worried about." This was AFTER I had to ask the staff what happened. They were not going to tell me at all to begin with. They were in searing pain, unable to move, covered in bruises for two weeks. I'd never felt so helpless before watching my loved one go through such a thing. I will have to tell aides my loved one needs changed (when it's insanely obvious and their linens are soaked) and they'll say "hmm yeah I thought I smelled urine" so why didn't you CHANGE THEM?!? Ignorance at its finest. Next- They have not had an activities staff member for heartland Village for well over a year. These residents receive absolutely no stimulation and not a single thing on their "activities calendar" happens. This has contributed greatly to my loved ones decline. I have had to pay money, or bring in my own supplies from my employers departments, to engage my loved one. Staff continuously yell at them and tell them to get in their room. They wonder why they're causing mischief..because they have no choices but to stare at the walls day and night. It is dark, dingy, and depressing down there. They have no lights in their living room creating a fall hazard. The window screens are constantly laying on the ground outside instead of being put in the window properly for safety, which the state has cited them for. Moving on- My loved one receives ONE silverware spoon sized serving of fruit with their dinner and this is supposed to be considered a nutritious meal. They do not offer substitutes when they see a resident has no interest in the meal they're given, or is confused by it (due to dementia) they take their plate away instead and call it a day. This is just a few of the ongoing unresolved grievances I have with Elmcroft. I had never been more disappointed by all aspects of a facility. SO so saddening.

My father was in there for 2 weeks. Would never recommend this place. He would ring his bell no one would come in for 20- -40 mins at a time. He fell layed on the floor for 25 mins. Then he ended up in Butler Hospital for 5 days with a UTI I asked a week before to plz have run for.. This place is horrible. I work for a assisted living & yes we are a 5* Upmc assisted communities
