I give El Dorado five stars not because they are perfect, but because they will totally work with residents and family members. The staff is caring. Our mom does not just get care, she gets loving care. If you have been caring for a parent or loved one and are exhausted (I was), and think all the stress is over, you are going to be disappointed anywhere. The admin and caregivers do not dodge issues. They communicate and promptly call if there is an issue. My mom has been at El Dorado for 15 months. Our family is fortunate to have the team at El Dorado on our side.
East Riverside Drive in Bothell is clean, inviting, and well maintained. Some of the furnishings need updating but overall very clean. I enjoyed walking around the grounds; it is not a large property, but there are several nice areas to sit and enjoy the outdoors. I like that is right next door to North shore Senior Center making it very convenient for residents. The surrounding neighborhood offers access to stores, restaurants, all within a short distance from Riverside Drive.
The activity calendar was disappointing; each week is very similar and each day only a few options for residents to choose from. There wasn’t much activity going on when I visited mainly residents sitting around, there were a few ladies sitting and knitting. From what I saw the week includes a shopping trip and a few exercise classes, plus daily TV, movies, and treats. A few other options like games, trivia, and a weekly visit to the beauty salon, but overall there wasn’t many events offered.
I asked about their Evergreen Brain Vitality Program and I wasn’t provided much information from the staff member I spoke with. I would like to see this program more in depth.
I haven’t personally eaten there myself but I was provided a tour of the kitchen and some samples they were good the residents like the food. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the dining room. Coffee and snacks are also offered throughout the day. The dining room was nice and the menu had a good selection for the day.
There is a good number of staff available to support residents with daily activities.
The apartments I toured were quite nice and good sized. Bathrooms were equipped for resident safety.
The outdoor area, however, needed improving of the landscaping and was in need of some minor maintenance work. On my visit, the grassy areas were overgrown and there were weeds where the flowers should be.
Usually housekeeping, laundry, and medical transportation are covered, pets are welcome.
This is a nice facility but a lacking on the activities. The staff was busy but could have been friendlier. I would have liked to see more interaction from the staff with the residents.
We have friends living at Spiritwood and have visited many times. Very impressed with the way the community supports spiritwood and vice versa. This is the way it should be. They have a nice relationship with the school next door who visit often. And great musical performances by local performers. They really listen to the residents concerns and preferences. A nice place to be!
My brother, Dick Baker, was a resident of Eldorado West for several years. He fought the move into assisted care, but he absolutely blossomed from a shy, lonely man into a happy, confident man. He felt safe in this new home, both physically and health-wise. Everyone seemed to take extra care to make him feel comfortable with his new surroundings. If he needed anything repaired in his home, he only had to ask. The staff was supportive to his every need. When he passed, the staff was very helpful to our family. Thank you Eldorado West
The staff are warm and inviting with great care. A complete rebuild is underway with the first of two building under construction. There is nothing like living in a brand new home, yet knowing the companies commitment to caring.
Riverside East is a quaint and small Assisted Living Community located next to the Northshore Senior Center...great location close to down town Bothell. Nice apartments, long term staff....General Manager has been there since the Community opened! Have acess to Senior Center and all their activities. Friendly staff.
