Experience with Elder Ashram

Hello BPN community, my mother is in need of 24/7 care and we recently toured Elder Ashram in Oakland.  We liked it overall but curious if anyone has any first hand experience with them?  It's a newer facility so there isn't a lot of information outside of a few Google reviews.  If not with Elder Ashram, is there an assisted living facility you would recommend in the East Bay? Thank you!

Hi there - my mother in law moved in two months ago and my husband would be glad to chat briefly via phone. If that’s of interest, please let us know.

A friend's father was there for 12-18 months before his passing (I don't recall the exact length of time), and she was tremendously pleased with the care, thoughtfulness, professionalism, warmth, etc. She visited at least weekly and was in regular contact with the staff, doctors and nurses. I can see if she'd be open to a conversation with you, if that would be helpful.

My aunt has lived at Tiffany Court in Walnut Creek for the past five years, and her experience has been very positive. The caregiving staff there has consistently impressed me with their dedication and quality of care. Patti, the director, is kind and approachable; she is always available to address any concerns, and I can contact her directly, even on her cell phone. Also, they have an excellent exercise instructor, Richard, and the chef goes above and beyond to prepare special meals for my aunt. The level of personalized attention makes my aunt feel like she is part of a family.

It may be farther than you want to go, but Atria Walnut Creek was a good for my mother in her final years.  A recent thread at Nextdoor also recommended The Point at Rockridge [near Broadway & Pleasant Valley].

I have an acquaintance who has lived at Elder Ashram for 2+ years. 

If you message me privately I will see if I can connect you directly.
