out front. Loved the decorations, and the residents were very welcoming and engaging. Inside the lobby it was busy with residents sitting, socializing, watching TV, reading and preparing for their day. All staff I encountered were friendly, warm and knowledgeable. I was impressed with my time spent at The Eliot Erie Station.

We are greatly appreciative of the loving care and understanding our loved one has received in the two-plus years she has lived at the Eliot. Eliot employees are also extended family. Observing the staff loving and caring for not just our loved one, but, all the residents, assures us we made the correct decision. The service you provide takes patience and loving care. The Eliot does this, and, for that, we are extremely blessed in the decision we were forced to make. Our experiences alone have earned The Eliot the right to be proud. She is very happy there. She has made new friendships and reacquainted with relationships from her younger years since she has been there. She is, and has always been, a social person.
We thank you for keeping our precious loved one involved in everyday life.

– Mary Z.

David was able to answer all my questions, and Nicole ran the office like a true professional. When my Dad is finally ready to make a decision, The Eliot is definitely on top of the list.

The Eliot at Erie Station houses only approximately 100 residents. They offer three meals a day, laundry washed and folded, room cleaned and bed made every day. They have a chain of command for any complaints. The staff is really good, and I get my meds every day. They’d send somebody upstairs to get my meds to me if they forgot them. They’re very good at what they do. They have a DJ, celebrate birthdays and go to the Walmart or the Rosemont. One of their cooks used to own a restaurant in Middletown, so the food is very good. They have three meals a day and also have what they call “the country kitchen” on each floor, and in between meals, they have coffee and snacks. Their staff is knowledgeable. This place is very good. They base the price more or less on your income to make sure that you’ve got money left for yourself. They charge one price for a double room if you want a roommate, one price for a single room, and one price for a single room with a bathroom, your own bathtub and shower. They have anything you want. The people who work there are very nice and outgoing. They have a physical therapist who comes in, and a doctor comes in once a week.

Age really is just a number. Our residents enjoy a wide variety of social and private activities offered on a daily basis. From Yoga, Bingo and Manicures to Sunday Mass, Baking Clubs and Horse Racing, our programming is truly unique. See here for yourself!
