Rosewood is a wonderful community, while looking for a place for my mother many people had told me that rosewood was a place i should look at. When I finally went to look I was very suprised from the moment I arrived and during my entire tour. The sales office was wonderful and could not be more knowledgeable about there community. The greatest thing was all of the people I encountered all seemed genuine about what they were doing. We are a couple of months from making our final decision but felt the need to let people know you cannot go wrong by taking a look at rosewood.
Rosewood has been a Godsend for our family. We no longer worry about Mom being in a very large house all by herself!! There are constantly fun and educational things going on, and always some great trip planned. The staff are always incredibly friendly and helpful, and go out of their way to make sure that their residents are happy and well cared for. I just wish that I could live there myself - right now!!!! Hopefully in the future.........
I chose Rosewood because of the location and the reputation. My father-in-law lived here 35 years ago and our family was very pleased with his care. Rosewood has a Continuing Care Retirement Community contract that made me feel this is a gift for my family to not be obligated financially for my continued care.
Dear Ruth L, Thank you so much for your positive feedback regarding Rosewood’s reputation and the care we provided to your father-in-law. We agree that our Continuing Care Retirement Community contract is a wonderful way to give a loved one (and their family) security and stability for the future. We’re so happy to hear you chose to spend your retirement years with us at Rosewood! Thanks again for sharing your thoughts about our community. -Ellen Renner Gibson, Executive Director
I have been a resident of Rosewood for three years and have never observed a lack of staff help for those needing assistance of any kind. However, there may be an occasion when we need to ask for help and not try it on our own. I have been using a walker for an extended period and am aware of the potential danger of trying to use the handrail and hang on to the walker at the same time, possibly causing an accident. If there is a question in our minds for our safety, ask the staff for help before starting on your own. Our staff is here to help and they do a fine job for us. The staff is friendly, kind and considerate and always have great concern for our safety.
I had lunch with a lady friend at Rosewood today and appalled at the design. the ramp going into the dining room for older people is ridiculous. My 91 yr old friend is recovering from a broken hip and had trouble making sure her walker didn't run down the ramp. I helped her catch it. Yes, she could hold on to the wall ledge, but then she could use only one hand to guide the walker. She had to use their restroom and the door is so heavy I had to help her get the walker in and keep the door open. When I volunteered with the CAPHA, we suggested lighter doors on such rooms and sliding door sin other areas. Cal State was a big offender. Rosewood is also an offender.
Thank you for sharing your concern. We, too, are concerned about your friend’s wellbeing and would like to assist her in getting around at Rosewood. It would be most helpful for concerns like this to be brought to the attention of our staff at the front desk so they can be addressed immediately. The ramp into the dining room meets all ADA requirements and we will address the concern about the ease of entering the public restroom. It is our goal to provide a warm, safe and secure environment for our residents, guests and team members. I’d welcome the opportunity to discuss with you offline at your convenience. Please contact me at 661-835-2503. Again, I appreciate your concern. Ellen Renner Gibson, Executive Director
