I went through The Groves at Tustin. They only had two one-bedrooms, and everything else was studios and shared rooms. They’re undergoing a major renovation, so it really wasn’t a good time to fairly judge the facility. The rooms were small, the cost was very high, and I did not like the dining room. The staff seemed to be very caring, but it was just a bad impression overall. I found it depressing, but they were undergoing a major renovation.
My mom is at Welbrook. The facility is beautiful. What impressed me about this place was how incredibly clean it is and how caring the people are. It really impacted me. They have is called Generations for people with dementia, of which there are maybe 20 patients there. They are just so loving, caring, and patient with every single one of them, including my mom who's having a tough time right now. I was very surprised and happy to find that the price was something we could afford to help my mom. It's a really good place to take care of her. The rooms are really nice. They usually give them every day a choice of two things to eat in the dining room. They had three meals and a lot of activities for them. They had their own theater, so you can watch a movie and a game room. They also have a lot of activities for the people in the dementia group every day. They have an app where we keep in touch all the time to know what's going on, like if she's participating in an activity, I usually get a text. I am able to go on the app at all times or on the internet to look see the daily schedule, so I am always aware of what's going on which is really nice. The place is peaceful and hands-on with a good ratio of patients to caregivers. It's a homey, quaint, and family-oriented environment. It wasn't congested or busy. It has a very relaxing environment.
I really liked Foothill Village's people and set up. That's the cheapest place we saw. The rooms were very nicely set up. We were looking at a two-bedroom. I liked the set up in their bathrooms where there was a tub in one bathroom and a shower in the other. They also were very accommodating, saying that they could put in handicap toilets for me. They had quite a bit of storage with a walk-in closet in the master bedroom and a very large closet on a wall in the other bedroom. Overall, everything was very nice. I liked the fact that it had a full kitchen if we want to cook. They had a chapel and a salon with very good prices. The dining area had menus, and you could pick from several things and specials. They also had a little, private dining room where you can entertain privately if you want.
Mission Hills seemed a little down to earth for dad. I appreciate whatever they do there. They mentioned they’re going to update their furniture. It’s too bad they couldn’t spend a little more on the looks of the outdoor area. I was impressed that they had a nurse there, and I appreciated the staff because she presented herself well.
Villa Bonita Senior Living is not as fancy as the other places but has a welcoming and inviting feel to it. The rooms are very nice. They have a beautiful courtyard, lots of activities, and a lot of the residents are out and about talking to one another. The sense of community is what I was impressed with the most. The food was OK, not great but not bad. The staff is wonderful. This place has the best value.
Welbrook Arlington had an apartment available, but it was very small. I only met with the manager, and it was a late appointment, so I did not see any activities. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The dining area was nice, spacious, and very clean. It was a nice, clean, gated community.
My loved one is in Oakmont of Chino Hills and doing well. It was the nicest facility of all the ones around there. It has a swimming pool, a jacuzzi, theater, rec room, workout room, beautiful dining room, and a couple rooms for group meetings with family. The person who took me around was very polite. They had a daily calendar of activities, and I think they offer to take them out to different places. The entrance is very nice and has little tables and chairs around, so you can have coffee in it or whatever. They have a library where they have tables and an outside yard for walking. The rooms are of a pretty good size.
Foothill Village Senior Living Community is nice and located up on a hill. Dad is able to go upstairs and go to the movie theater, and do different activities upstairs. They do walks in the neighborhood and take them for a drive to go shopping three times a week. His room was small and the view is looking at a hill with trees on it. The staff is not very easy to get hold of, so you always have to leave a message. Dad pushes his red button and waits forever for someone to come in. The place is not too bad, but I would not want to be there.
The people at The Groves of Tustin seemed nice but young, so I was kind of sketchy at first and intimated. I know that younger people are being hired all of the time, but I’d rather talk to a 40- or 50-year-old than someone that’s younger. But the facility was wonderful. There is a salon and classes where my father could work out. I went out there to help my mom make a decision, and The Groves is one of my top choices. They gave me the big activities calendar that does not fully include the Alzheimer’s patients. They have a list of things that the Alzheimer’s and dementia people are getting, which are the same activities but in a separated environment. That was different for me because as a school teacher, I know that the more you expose people to what they should be doing, then they do what they do. That was my only complaint, and the eating area was separate from the Alzheimer’s and the dementia patients. The. dining area reminded me of a Comfort Inn. The staff was all there prepping for dinner. They were very kind and seemed to be knowledgeable. Sometimes they have assigned seating, so you don’t get to choose who you sit by. The one thing about these places that a lot of people don’t take into account is whether or not something is furnished, and that is something that put me off. I had to buy my dad a twin bed and a bureau, and I could get all that stuff really cheap in Wal-Mart, but that’s probably not what he would feel comfortable in. I said, “Oh, I didn’t know that I would have to buy the furnishing for my father.” I talked to a couple of people who were in the hallways, and I was like, “How are you liking this?” And they said, “This is great.” Even though they’ve separated from the dementia unit, the unit has its own outside area, and the fact that pets were allowed was really a good thing because a lot of them have pets. They have muffins and snacks during the day if anyone’s hungry and memory boxes outside of people’s rooms, so that they know where they’re going. I liked the facility; I thought it was perfect. They had great dining options; my dad could have salmon every night.
Mission Hills at Rancho Mirage was a little upscale and very clean. The young lady who took us around knew all of the residents' names. I was very impressed with it. It was out of our budget, though, unfortunately. It was very welcoming. When we walked in, they even had my name up there. They seemed very engaging to all the residents. I wouldn't mind going there. They had movies and exercise, and took residents around once a week to certain places. They had a whole month of activities mapped out. They were very accommodating and had their hallways named after stars. It was like a luxury resort.
We visited Murrieta Gardens assisted living and memory care. It was clean, and the people there seemed to be very active. It was an older community. The rooms were very small, like a hotel room. They had a bedroom with a place to put a TV and a little space for a microwave. That was about it. They expected you to go out and had a living room somewhere else. I did not like the set up at all. However, it was clean and nice and looked like they were good to the people. As we walked by, everybody waved and said, “Hi!”
I had an appointment at Wellbrook and got there on time but probably waited 45 minutes while they talked to another visitor or family, which I thought was not very well planned if we had an appointment. Then, the woman I had made the appointment with was not available. It wasn’t the person I was scheduled to see who does the regular tour; instead, it was an assistant who showed me the facility. It was clean and new but very much a senior home with a convalescent feel to it, meaning senior living where the seniors are treated like they’re old. This place was definitely institutional. The rooms were nice but almost sterile. We talked about organized activities like bingo and things like that, which wouldn’t appeal to my mother. The grounds and facility were very nice and very well kept. The location for me was not convenient. I didn’t meet many of their staff, just the assistant who gave me the tour, who was very pleasant, but English was not her first language. If they can promote a more congenial atmosphere, I would recommend it to someone with health issues who would need more care.
The Varenna at Fountain Grove was a beautiful place with OK rooms. I did not like how some of them were situated. The view and all of the amenities that they had were excellent. It was a little costly but not outrageous. They did not have the care that I needed. I was looking for long-term care, but they were pretty good and had lots of activities. Their dining area seemed pretty nice, and I had eaten there once, too. Varenna was sort of over the top with the latest and the best of everything. It was very dramatic, like a villa, on a hill way above most other places.
Cypress Place has three levels of care. The food is good, and people seemed to be very happy. They’re open and frank. However, they totally separate a person with dementia from their spouse, and the price goes up.
We visited and loved The Groves of Tustin. I totally wanted my mom to move there, but it was really expensive if you needed a lot of care, and she needed a lot of care. It was close to $10,000 per month. Otherwise, I was very impressed and would have loved to have moved her there. They could improve on the price because they charge for every little thing.
The Point at Rockridge is a community just outside of Oakland's trendy and busy Rockridge neighborhood with lots of shopping and dining choices. They have 147 apartments, 29 of which are devoted to memory care. They offer all-day dining, as well as a 24/7 bistro with snacks. They also offer diabetic and gluten-free choices to their residents. Their community is consisted of about 50% Jewish faith based residents, and they offer Jewish and two Christian based on-site services each week, as well as shuttles to other houses of worship. They have an on-site salon that also offers massages, as well as 4 hydro tubs for residents' needs. They also have a movie theatre, are very pet friendly, and offer, if needed, room furnishings. They also have a nice courtyard with barbeques and have lots of social events there. While this community is dated--it was originally built as a dormitory for a local college and is not updated on the outside, the inside and the employees are warm and friendly.
This community is the "rock star" of all of the places I've visited. It is the only place in the county that has apartments that are this large. Residents need to bring their own furnishings and decorate them as they wish as to bring a sense of "home" here. This is the only community I have seen that has a heated pool and hot tub for its residents to enjoy. They have multiple choices of apartments, but, unfortunately, I was only able to see the small one bedroom unit as they are at 100 percent occupancy, with a 6 month wait list. They also have a great fitness center, beauty salon, on-call massages, as well as a host of other amenities, excursions, and a host of dining choices. They have so many amenities and fun events that I can't even list here! This place makes me wish I was 65!
I really like the lighting of Felicita Vida Senior Living. There’s a good amount of natural light, but most of the light in this facility comes from artificial lights. Despite the lighting, the building still manages to feel very bright.
This facility is very close to Vons grocery, Trader Joes, and shopping centers. Furthermore, there are many restaurants nearby. However, I would not suggest walking to these facilities due to having to cross a major roadway. The style is unique, and the outside building reminds me of a Spanish Vila. Inside, there are private and semi private rooms. The semi private rooms are small, but the price is in the two thousands, which is very affordable. The apartments are nice, well designed, and offers more space so that residents can move about safely.
There is also therapeutic memory and physical care available.There is nothing unique about the services at this facility, but the staff members are nice, the residents are friendly, and location is peaceful.
Lantern Crest Senior Living has its pros and its cons. The pros of this facility are that it is very modern and updated with plenty of great features and amenities. Lantern Crest Senior Living has plenty of regularly hosted activities and a good amount of amenities. While Lantern Crest Senior Living is a good facility overall, it falls short in the area of management. Though the staff is competent, they seem overworked.
