    I Visited This Facility

    • Overall

    The Springs of El Cajon was a very good community. The only thing was they didn't have a bottom floor or ground floor. I liked that it's clean, and the residents and the people working there were very nice. It didn't have anything on the first floor, and my mother didn't like elevators. It's hard for her to climb. It's about ten to twelve minutes from my house. The rooms were beautiful and they had a 1-bedroom with a large bath. They were nicer and bigger, but a little bit more expensive. They didn't have anything in our price range.

    We've had my mom at The Springs of El Cajon for the last three weeks. We just liked the way people talked to us, and how friendly the staff and the residents were. Everybody seems to help everybody there, and it’s a great atmosphere. The food for the most part is very good, and the staff is excellent. I am extremely satisfied with what they've got going on for the seniors. My mom really enjoys the entertainment and the music, and she's been on a few of the excursions. She likes getting out and chatting with people when they have games out in the garden. The value is very good, and they provide excellent service.
