Leisure Care California retirement communities are not your average “old folks home.” They resemble luxury resorts offering good food, good friends and what we like to call Five-Star Fun. For the past three decades, Leisure Care has worked to perfect the art of senior living. You won’t find our residents taking out the trash, scrubbing floors or mowing lawns, because we do all of that for them. Our goal is to provide California seniors with the best, most fun experience they’ve ever had so that they can make the most out of life.
Springfield Place is 10 minutes away from my house. My in-laws have a two-bedroom, two-bathroom, so it fit the criteria they needed. It’s OK. Pretty much everybody has the same service, care, activities, and amenities they offer. They’re basically all the same. The location and the layout of the building look nice and clean. Everyone seems friendly, too. There are a myriad of activities, but my parents haven’t done anything yet. They’re just newly in. Like most places, they have guest lectures, cards, bingo, movie night, and happy hour. I have not eaten there, but my in-laws love the food.
Springfield Place is very nice. We got a nice tour and good information. It's expensive, but it was a good experience. The rooms and apartments are beautiful, very nicely appointed, spacious, and well kept up. The grounds are very nice, well manicured, and spacious, and there was opportunity for residents to work with landscaping, so it's nice. The dining area looked very nice, clean, inviting, and welcoming.
Newport Beach Plaza is not a huge facility. There were a lot of activities, a group getting ready to go on a whale watch, and people in the dining room. Everybody knew somebody that was there. They had a recreation room, a TV room, a library, a deli, bar, and a dining room where you could eat breakfast any time you want. There were also a lot of awards on a table. The residents knew it was a good place. They also said they were having a special where residents would save $15,000 a year, the first year. It's a good incentive.
Most of the people at Fairwinds were a little a bit older. I am 68, and they just seemed to be older. It costs $3,000 a month, which is too high for me. The staff seemed to be nice and polite. The rooms were standard, and they had a lot of activities, like field trips. It was well managed.
We decided on Fairwinds. I like the price, amenities, physical therapy, personal training, and the amount of exercise equipment available. It seems to be affordable and includes the extras for no extra charge. The staff seems to be intent on keeping residents active and busy. There is an option to see a doctor who comes to visit once a month. They also have trips.
Outstanding facility for independent seniors and seniors needing a little assistance with activities of daily living. The facility has a large capacity for residents and is located by the ranch so residents have plenty to keep them busy, with activities on site and within walking distance of recreation.
The food is great. I had breakfast during my visit with one of the residents, and healthy meals are served and prepared on site. This facility is family and pet friendly. I saw a few pets during my visit. I love this facility because the activity director is very nice and welcome suggestions. This is a great facility for seniors who are independent and want to retain there independence and meet new friends.
My mom loved this place. Unfortunately she had to move when she was no longer considered "independent". She was not happy for the first month or so just because of the change but by the 3rd month she was saying she had died and gone to heaven and LOVED it! She is one picky lady too. Jessica the manager is an Angel. She is so sweet and friendly. Her employees are all happy and I believe she is the reason. It's clean, updated, and well run. I recommend it all the time to my friends looking for their parents. The care givers are wonderful. My mom called Mimi her best friend. The reason I gave the food 3 stars is because it was on and off. Sometimes it was really good and other times not good. The reason I gave the overall 4 stars is because the caregivers were 90% great but there were a couple of them that were not as patient and kind as they should have been in that job. That is going to happen anywhere. I would like to give the place 4 1/2 stars but couldn't make it highlight half of the 5th star.
