My dad moved into Vacaville Retirement Community - Happy Living by Cogir independent living. They're very friendly and accommodating. They're in the process of remodelling all of the apartments so everything is being upgraded. The dining room is well-tended and my dad compliments the food a lot. My dad is in a fully upgraded studio with a small kitchenette. They've got three meals a day from 11 to 7. They've got a full calendar of activities, transportation, and activity room. It seems like everybody is active and likes where they are. There is a library and lots of really nice sitting areas. The staff is excellent, very friendly, personable, make an effort to get to know the people, and very accommodating. They complete requests within the same day, not the next day.
If you love your family member keep looking. Here are some of the issues in less than two and half months of my mother living there. *First night in respite care, as they sat my mom on bed, it collapsed. They hadn\'t connected the frame. *They never cleaned the patio--so many spider webs, she had large spider in bed. *Employee did not close catheter bag, and it leaked all over carpet all night. They had nothing to help absorb it and had housekeeping vacuum. Odor was terrible *after complaints they shampooed carpet making it so wet, she slipped. *final straw was a cockroach in her ear. When one employee went to take picture of it another stopped her. What are they hiding?
We visited Brookdale Vacaville Leisure Town. We liked it, but my parents are going to live with my sister. I liked the apartments. They looked spacious, very clean, and well maintained. There were people sitting in social rooms talking, but we didn't see any activities. We saw the dining room, and it looked nice, and the food looked good, but we didn't eat anything. I talked to one person and she was fine. Everything was very well maintained. It was in a nice area with lots of trees.
Brookdale Vacaville Leisure Town is fairly clean and nice. The furniture is somewhat dated. It has a little bit of Victorian atmosphere to it, which is nice. The courtyard is nice. The food is mundane. It has a lot of preservatives in it. They say that they will take up food to the residents if they're having a difficult time coming down to the cafeteria, but sometimes they don't get up there for an hour or an hour and a half and by the time they do, it's cold. Sometimes they don't put back all the clothes that they take out to have them laundered, and sometimes other people's clothes get in there as well. They don't clean off anything that has medications or appliances. The person or the family has to clean all that off. The bathroom is only cleaned lightly. They don't do a really good job cleaning the stalls and the sinks. They don't do a good job in the kitchen. They do vacuum, but it's very lightly. We asked how much it would cost to have somebody come in and help her with her medications and they said they would do a flat $500 a month. They're not very helpful to the people who live there. You have to pay a much higher price to get satisfactory care from them.
My relatives are in Brookdale Vacaville Leisure Town. It's a very nice place and they're thrilled. The food is good and they're very happy with the facility. They have one of the larger 1-bedrooms with living room apartments. The laundry is very near, they have their own cable, and we've ordered the extended cable for the room. It's also not too far from the dining area. The community is full of very friendly people. My sister-in-law -- who's very outgoing -- probably knows everybody in the place by now. They also like the fact that the staff comes in and cleans their room once a week. The staff that I met was nice, they've been very helpful, and I haven't met anybody I didn't like. There's a lot of activities available, and if you don't want to participate, then you don't have to. The pricing is pretty good for everything that they are getting.
Brookdale Vacaville was beautiful, clean, and the staff was wonderful. My aunt will be living there, and we think it's a great community. The rooms were very nice; we saw one that we liked and signed up that day. The residents looked happy, greeted each other warmly, and looked to be in good spirits. I thought everything was quite good.
