Brookdale was very nice. It’s under construction, and a lot was being updated. I was mainly concerned with the dementia care side and its services. The price was pretty good. It was nice and clean, and the people were very nice and caring. I also liked that they kept the place updated and nice looking.

Brookdale Salinas was very nice. We signed up for that one and were ready to take him in, but then they said that he was too active. I think that place is a convalescent home. They said they would lock him down in one section and then they have another section where they have people live...

Information About Assisted Living Facility in Salinas

Salinas, CaliforniaSalinas is the largest municipality of Monterey County, California, located 10 miles from the Salinas River. Since the city is located at about 52 feet above sea level at the mouth of the Salinas Valley and about 8 miles from the Pacific Ocean, it has a mild climate ideal for florists and grape vineyards. The sunny climate and proximity to seaside views make assisted living in Salinas an ideal choice for retirement.

Salinas Recreation

Known as the "Salad Bowl of America," Salinas Valley produces about 80% of the lettuce in the USA and is more popular as an agricultural center than a tourist attraction. Nonetheless, the city still finds a way to cultivate the arts with exhibits held at the Valley Art Gallery, the Hartnell College Gallery and the National Steinbeck Center. However, the city's biggest attraction is the California Rodeo Salinas, which has been a regular event since it started as a Wild Wild West Show in 1911. Since then, Salinas has been considered a major stop in the professional rodeo circuit. Other important events held in Salinas are the California International Airshow and the world-famous Steinbeck Festival. With so many fun events and attractions, the city provides an enriching cultural experience to seniors enjoying assisted living in Salinas.

Salinas Activities

At the moment, the Salinas Senior Center is still in its planning stages. Its objective is to build a one-stop senior center where residents whose ages are 50 and over and their caregivers can get access to various activities that will involve the improvement of their health and well-being. Meanwhile, the city government provides seniors with the Firehouse Senior Program that promotes good health and an active lifestyle. Programs are usually held at the Firehouse Recreation Center and include lectures on senior nutrition or insurance. Recreational activities include regular bingo games, dance classes, or arts and crafts workshops. They also sponsor educational classes such as basic computer courses. These senior programs offer a good and healthy environment for residents of assisted living in Salinas.

Salinas Medical Facilities

Find Assisted LivingAn important factor that most families consider in finding assisted living communities for their loved ones is the competency and accessibility of medical facilities in the area. Serving residents of assisted living in Salinas, the Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital (SVMH) is the most competent facility that can handle any medical problem or emergency in the area. SVMH is regarded as one of the best hospitals in the country because of their leading-edge medical technology as well as their affiliation with NASA and Stanford University. In 1998 and 2004, the SVMH signed a Space Pact Agreement with NASA that gives the hospital 3D imaging capability for diagnostic analysis, making it one of the few hospitals in the nation that hold the title of "virtual hospital."

Salinas Transportation

Public transportation within the city is served primarily by the Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST). MST also started a pilot program which uses taxi vouchers to assist seniors in acquiring fixed bus routes. The bus company likewise works in cooperation with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and offers accessible rides to residents who are unable to use MST's regular fixed route due to disability. This is a great service for residents of assisted living in Salinas who may find it difficult to use regular transportation.
