When I moved in to Suzanne Elise by avamere, it was a great place to live. The food was great, the caregivers were outstanding. However, over the last year or so whenever you press your pendant for help, you're lucky if someone comes to your apt in 20-30 minutes. I'm told they're only allowed 10 minutes to be in compliance. A few of my close friends died and I'm sure they might still be alive if it hadn't taken so long for someone to get around to getting to them. One of these days a caregiver is going to walk into someones apt and find them dead from a stroke or heart attack on the floor because it took 20 or 30 minutes to get to them.If you are a lover of good food or you're a diabetic, or you have high blood pressure, you DO NOT WANT TO LIVE HERE! The person in charge of foodservice at Suzanne Elise has absolutely no dietary certification and the food reflects it. Every meal is a new experience in disgusting! There is ZERO dietary balance to our meals. The food has gotten so bad there are actually residents here that refuse to eat the swill any longer and have to go without. In addition, The kitchen runs out of food all the time so if you don't get to the dinning room at the beginning of the meal, you could end up getting a cold sandwich instead of the hot meal you paid for. I was watching a movie on TV a few nights ago and lost track of time. When I realized there was only a 1/2 hr left to get dinner [6:30pm], I rushed to the dinning room only to find the kitchen shut down and everyone gone. Unfortunately, I went without dinner and it has happened several times. The residents complain about it frequently but nothing has changed. It has always been my experience that the manager is usually available all day. However, since she only works a couple hours a day and only a couple days a week, the foodservice staff are on auto-pilot since there is no manager or even a supervisor on site most of the time. I've never met a manager that works less than half as much as their staff. This morning I woke up and went down to get breakfast and discovered the entire lobby has been torn up and is being remodeled. We never got any kind of warning, it just happened. Instead of fixing all the other things that actually need a lot more attention than the lobby, avamere has decided to create yet another nightmare we have to endure. The health department closed down the kitchen last year because there were holes in the floor and sanitation that was almost non-extent. The residents were told the kitchen would be closed for 10 days to replace the floor and address the serious sanitation issues. 47 days later, the kitchen was finally reopened. We're all worried the lobby remodel is going to end up like the kitchen. Suzanne Elise would roll over in her grave if she knew how avamere has run this place down the toilet. There was a time that this facility was known as 'thee' place to live. It's gotten so bad that even the staff are embarrassed to admit they work here. The last time someone asked me where I lived, I was given a look of sympathy and they said they have heard horrible things about that place. Another one told me they had to move their mom out of here because almost every time they visited, mom was sitting in a urine soaked diaper laying in a urine soaked bed pad. The last time she visited, the apt looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a month.To add insult to injury, avamere decided to combine the two properties here in Seaside together and moved all their assisted living residents from that facility at the other end of town into Suzanne Elise. Many of those residents were moved into bigger apt's than they had at the other facility and aren't paying the higher amount the larger apt costs. All but 3 or 4 of the residents they moved here seriously belong in a mental institution. One of them just squats down and relieves herself [where ever she is], one that walks through the building completely naked, another one that goes out on the street and waves at passing cars...embarrassing the entire facility. Nearly every one of those residents [avamere at Seaside] take up so much of the caregivers' time that the other residents get to wait or in most cases, go without the attention we pay for. In conclusion, take a look at to see what things are like here. Don't believe ANY of the pictures or what you read. The dinning room doesn't look anything as is portrayed on the website. The so called activity room with everyone looking so happy and working on various projects, does not exist. When you consider the huge amount of money we all pay to live here [avg $3500], we should be eating like royalty and getting the kind of service that leaves us wanting for nothing. The so called "resident and family reviews" posted on their website, were written by avamere. If you care at all about the relative you're trying to find a home for, you won't consider an avamere property to put them in. You WILL be sorry.

We would like to thank Darla Busch, the maintenance and all around person, at Suzanne Elise for her outstanding help in packing up, loading and delivering all of our loved ones possessions to us outside the building of Suzanne Elise. These are tough times for all, especially our elderly folks that can't get out. We need people like Darla that really care. We can't express our appreciation enough. Thank you, Tyler and Deanna Evans

Suzanne Elise is a wonderful place full of caring, attentive staff. It is in a quiet, forested area near the hospital and is the perfect place to retire.
