We toured Silverado and were very impressed! I have been to almost all the facilities in north OC and this one is most likely at the very top...however, I do not have anyone living here and realize that makes a big difference (hence 4 stars because I only have 'tour' experience). I was extremely impressed with the care takers who seemed to be involved with every resident they were attending. If they were not with a resident, they were on the move going to one. The building was clean even though there are dogs, cats and a rabbit. The activities I was told about were well planned for those who need a bit more care. They are also the most expensive we have looked at, but I believe well worth the price. Unfortunately, my parent does not have enough $, or I would have chosen this place.
I love everything this place does to create a warm, stimulating environment for memory-impaired people. From the care to the cleanliness to the food, they put maximum effort into it. I have heard the complaints that this place is pricey, but if people spent enough time here watching the staff care for the residents I think they would feel like it is money well spent.
