The Chateau at Harveston was a totally different type of facility. It was only independent and was very elegant and very nice. You could just go ahead and stay in your own apartment for the whole length of time and take caregivers. They had a large amount of caregivers which were either trained by them or were coming from an agency. It was just a different way of looking at it.
Our visit to Atria was fine. The facilities looked beautiful, and the lunch we had was delicious. However, husband was not interested in that type of situation, and it was so expensive, but it were really nice. In fact, I'm attending a caregiver’s class there every week. I thought it was lovely.
I went over to Atria, and they didn’t have anything available for me. I wasn’t pleased because it was too small for me, and I felt very confined. The staff was excellent, very efficient, and tried to help as much as possible. The atmosphere was very nice, very friendly, and very good. They had an ice cream parlor open on Tuesdays and Sundays and a hair salon.
Atria Park was beautiful. It looked like a resort, and I wanted to move in. The staff was friendly and awesome. The residents I saw were leaving to go places, and a couple were in wheelchairs and seemed fine. Everybody seemed upbeat and really happy. They gave me a gift pack to give to my mom, and she loved it.

Temecula is a quaint California city nestled between Los Angeles and San Diego. According to Pechanga mythology, the city was believed to be the “meeting place” of Father Sky and Mother Earth. So, it should come as no surprise that Temecula is a derivative of the Indian word “Temecunga” which means “place of the sun.” Given the city’s subtropical climate, that is a pretty accurate description of the balmy temperatures its approximate 100,000 residents - 24% of whom are forty-five years old or older - can expect almost year-round.
