    Grossmont Gardens was terribly expensive, and it was further. It has all levels, and it's a big place. It just didn't seem like it was going to work for what I needed. It’s on a side of a hill, so it's not level. They had an RN on staff, and the people there greeted me.

    Grossmont Gardens was good, clean, had nice staff and seemed to be a nice place. They had a library but didn't have a pool.

    Grossmont Gardens is older senior citizen living. The people were nice. The facility looked tidy. The room was sufficient and nice. The staff seemed nice, too. They had some activities in one room, and the dining room was excellent. The dining area looked nice, but I didn’t look at the food.

    We were not pleased with the appearance of Grossmont Gardens Health Center. It was very drab, so it could have been perked up. I don’t believe they had that much assistance. There weren’t that many skilled nurses on duty at one time. I wasn’t particularly happy with the place. The day-to-day staff was excellent, although they were very overwhelmed with all that they had to do. Very often, some things can’t get done, like the wastebaskets weren’t emptied. My father-in-law was left to eat by himself in his bed and was having a hard time doing that. He could have easily choked. The food was fine. He was on a pureed diet, and they tried to do a good job with that. He was incapable of any activities other than being pushed in a wheelchair. They need to perk up the place, paint it, and make it look a little more presentable and happier, and get more staff so that the patients aren’t left alone so much and have more assistance in feeding when they need it, not just to be left alone in their bedrooms to eat by themselves.

    Grossmont Gardens is a comfortable facility located near Lake Murray and Lake Murray Park which is a great place to relax and enjoy he outdoors. This facility has a very nice pool area that’s large enough to accommodate many residents at once. There are also good sitting areas near the pool and around the property. Grossmont Gardens isn’t the most modern facility, but it’s nice considering its age. The facility is pretty clean and well maintained. This is a large facility that houses both independent and assisted living residents, and the facility is suited well for both because the admission staff develop care plans that are tailored to the needs of the residents. The facility also has a variety of activities that appeal to various personalities and diverse backgrounds. I would choose this facility for the quality care, friendly staff, and quiet community.

    Some of the best and nicest people live and work at Grossmont Gardens. From all indicators, the staff really watches out for their resident's. Based on my visits to Grossmont Gardens, the resident's appear happy, well adjusted, and pleased to be there. It is not a fancy or modern community. It is located in a nice residential area of East San Diego called La Mesa. Close to San Diego State University. It is part of the Elmcroft chain of senior communities. One of the great things about Grossmont is their desire to grant fabulous dream wishes to the resident's.
