Built in the picturesque foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, residents of Valencia Commons love our magnificent facilities and scenic views while enjoying all the convenience of the nearby community.
The Bonaventure's staff is very pleasant, and I am very satisfied. I am planning on moving there. I like the facility and the people who are working there. I should be happy there. The apartments are clean and a good size. I have nothing negative to say about them.
I liked The Oaks of Auburn. The staff was very helpful and keeps in contact with me. The room they showed me was very nice and would have accommodated what furniture I would take with me. The dining room was very nice. The whole place made me feel comfortable and I know I would like living there because I already knew people there. They had bingo, a beautiful pool table, recreation area, and went on trips. It's a place I would enjoy being close to good friends and where I used to work.
Rock Spring was amazing, clean, and wel -kept. It looked like they had activities going on. My daughter and I both went along with mom, and we were impressed. It was very nice and I have nothing bad to say about it at all; everything was nice. We ate lunch there and the food was good. If I do see any other places, they'll have to measure up to Rock Spring or be better. The staff all seemed very friendly and nice, and I don't have any complaints. There's no pool, but I saw a library and a beauty salon.
I picked Vineyard Commons, and I'm moving into it in a couple of weeks. The staff was very nice and went above and beyond to make me feel welcome, told me all the ins and outs, and kept inviting me for lunch. When I said I wanted to bring my daughter with me to get her feedback on it, and they were nice to her, answered whatever questions she had, and showed her a sample room that I would be in. I was waiting for a vacancy, and they called me up after a couple of weeks and said, "We don't want you to think that we forgot about you, so come on over for lunch." They kept in touch with me, made me feel like they wanted me to be there, and did all they could to make it an enjoyable experience. My room is a studio which is right on the main corridor down the hall from the library, crafts room, and laundry, so it's all very convenient near my room. The room is big enough for the little bit of furniture I have, it's not crowded, and it's just what I need. Every Thursday, they have a trip somewhere, crafts every other day, Bible study in the evenings, sing-alongs, wine parties every Wednesday, church services on Sunday, and exercise. You can stay in your room if you want, but why when there's so much going on? It meets my price and has the activities I want to do. Laundry is free.
I have moved into The Palms. It stood out to me because of how friendly they were and how they were recommended by some people who had lived here; their children were very pleased with it. The apartments are very nice and clean. There's always somebody around to give you a hand if you need help. I am very pleased with it. They have bridge. The chef really outdoes himself. The veggies are always nice and fresh and not overcooked. The meat is good and the fish is wonderful. I don't have any complaints about this place at all.
My father is in Bay Park. It has been really good for my dad since he's made a lot friends. It is an independent living and the perfect level of care for him because he can still be pretty independent, but it gives the family a lot of security knowing that there is 24-hour staff set up for people with disabilities. They look out for him if does not come for dinner or something. I think it is the perfect environment for someone with his level of difficulty where he can still be independent; he can come and go if he pleases, but all the meals are provided and he has the community and security. The food is good. I eat there a couple of times a month with him, and I am really impressed with the food. I think it is really good quality. They have fresh vegetables with their salads, and the meals are well balanced and fresh. If he does not want to eat any of the food, they are accommodating to that. He likes movies a lot and every night or in the evening, they show a movie in the living room. They make popcorn, and he really enjoys that. They have really good activities. My dad is a published author and asks that if he can do a reading of one of his books to the community, and they have scheduled that. That was really so great for him to have that opportunity to share his book with the community. If you live in the community and you are an artist, they feature things about them. They really show a lot of respect for the people who live there who have had careers and done a lot in their lives. They really honor them and give them a chance to share that with the rest of the people living there. I think it is really great. My only complaint, honestly, is that it is expensive. I feel like it is really high quality, but I feel like for what we are paying, it had better be.
The Palms was really nice, though a little overpriced, but they were all in that price range. The apartments were very nice, spacious, and I guessed that they had 47 different floor plans. The staff was very friendly and very cordial. They took me on a tour and showed me everything. They had a beauty salon, a weight room, a card room, and basically everything that everybody else did.
We had a positive tour of Springs of Escondido. The rooms looked pretty roomy, and they had a lot of activities. We were not able to eat there, but they do provide meals. Their dining area looked spotless, and their menu looked good. I met few of the staff who seemed very friendly and caring. They had bus trips to various place. I looked at their calendar, and they had games and a lot of things going on. I would definitely recommend this place.
I had a great time with Redwood. It was just right, and the facilities were beautiful. The staff was accommodating and seemed to be really caring. The dining room was really nice, clean, and pretty well kept.
The only one we visited was Harveston. It’s a really nice facility with bright and spacious rooms. They had a library, a dining room, a game room, a TV room, a workout area, a craft room, and an outdoor area. The staff was very friendly, and there are a lot of activities that appeal to my grandmother. They have non-denominational church services and bingo, and for my grandfather, they have football games on like football parties.
I have a relative that lives in The Vintage. They had a luau, and we went to that. I didn’t see his room or any of the living facilities, but his family did and were very pleased with them. The Vintage was very nice. My relative was very comfortable there, and the family was very pleased with his care. Their activities were well directed. The food was good. They had dancing and a very nice lunch. It was really well done. However, the community was definitely for the very mobile residents that were of sound mind. There wasn't any assisted living at all. It was definitely retirement.
The Chateau At Harveston was very lovely and pleasant. It was very clean too. I was very impressed with all the beautiful services that they have for their residents. I met a few residents and I had dinner there and the food was very good. The rooms are beautiful and I can have my own furniture. Their apartments are nice and are not cramped. The grounds were beautifully kept. The manager was very accommodating and friendly. I saw some of the activities and they do have a nice roster of activities. It looks like an A++ facility. It may be a little pricier for some, but I think it’s worth it.
I thought The Palms was a little worn, but the people were very nice. The units were OK, but it seemed like only two of them would be good for us because I have a baby grand piano that I'm not going to part with. We had lunch there, but I was not impressed with the food at all. It seemed kind of basic. Their activities were typical and nothing stood out.
The Westmont was fine. The apartment I saw was empty and needed some cleaning but looked nice to me. It just needed some wall patches. The staff was very friendly and good. Everybody seemed pleasant and active.
Redwood was fine, although I don’t believe they are for my mother-in law. They seemed to have older demographics and a higher level of care. It seemed more assisted living. The kitchenette was smaller than what we are looking for but well-appointed. They had good-sized rooms that seemed to have been upgraded recently, so there wasn’t a lot of wear and tear.
I picked a studio in the Hampshire. I went to see it twice. It was very nice, and the dining room was like a restaurant with individual tables, wall-to-wall carpeting, and very good food. They had studio rooms, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms, and every time somebody leaves, the old things are replaced and the rooms are painted. It was very clean, gives you three meals, cleans your rooms every week, and has a free washer and dryer. I spoke with some of the people who live there who seemed very happy, and they said they keep them busy with activities every day. I liked the price, too.
I moved into The Camelot for a little over two weeks ago. It's very easy to live here. The managers are very nice and very accommodating. The people are mostly friendly, although there are a few who are attached to their own ways, stuck at their own tables, and are not very friendly, but mostly people are welcoming and inviting. From the minute I saw The Camelot, I knew that it was superior in quality compared to anything I've seen. The price and the quality are unbeatable. There is a heated swimming pool and hot tub which I love. There's a travel opportunity because it's a Holiday retirement community; you can go to 300+ other places and stay there for free, which I intend to make use of. There are lots of card games, crafts, movies, and other activities. The managers are top notch. There are multiple choices of food at every meal.
I loved Bridgecreek. We experienced eating with the community and how it feels if our family member was there. They followed up with us afterward. The rooms were nice, clean, and roomy. Their dining room was nice and had a view of the creek. The staff lives inside the community, so it makes it more like a family environment. They invest their time in the residents.
My uncle's studio room at The Oakmont is quite spacious. The staff is very accommodating. They have independent living facility and also on-site care providers for an extra price. My uncle sought out their services because he needs assistance with bathing on occasion. They also come and do personal laundry. One of my favorite activities that they have for the residents is happy hour on Thursdays with musicians that come in from around town. When I get the chance, I go there and have a glass of wine or beer while I enjoy the concert. They make homemade pizzas that are always excellent, nice, and warm. One of the things I also like about this place is they have a podiatrist, so that's a big help because my uncle had a stroke and can't reach his own toe nails. They have a lot of music, like today, when I was there after lunch and they had a live musician. It was very fun. The place is very well maintained. The comanagers have been very attentive. Every time I go, it is always a pleasure.
My experience with Bay Park was excellent. Once we visited, it was very quick and easy to do all the documents and arrange to move in. My mom's room is very nice. It was the nicest one we saw and is kept very clean. Meals are served on time every day, and my mom enjoys the food.
My parents are in Redwood Residence. They like the facilities, the clubs and exercise, the drama and the singing, and being away from lots of people. They are in a two-bedroom, which has more than enough room for the two of them and are happy to have that. However, they’re not very impressed with the food. We had two meals there and were not impressed with it either.
Right now, I’m in an independent retirement facility in Pinole called Bay Park. It’s warm enough, and we see a movie three or four times a week, which is a big deal for me because I still love cinema. There are about 100 residents here. The staff is awesome and wonderful. I tend to avoid the activities, but they have bingo and computer bowling and all sorts of activities. When I first moved in here, I said to just give me a closet and I would be very happy. The room I’m in is much bigger than what I need.
