Everything was very clean at Vista del Rio. The unit that we looked at was exactly what we were looking for. It was on the bottom floor and had a very nice slider with a doggie door for the dog to go in and out into the fenced area. It seemed to be perfect for us. The people were very friendly. The young lady was extremely helpful in providing lots of information about their community and what they had going on. She introduced us to the finance guy, and we talked about money.

I Am/Was A Resident Of This Facility

I have lived here at Vista del Rio for a year. I chose it because of the size of their casitas and the availability. There is a social director and she keeps the residents busy with activities. There is entertainment by singers, games, baseball with beanbags, cards, Bingo, and so forth. They decorate the beautiful dining room extensively during the holidays, they honor the Veterans, and if a person passes, there's a moment of silence out of respect. It's a very desirable place to live. The food is good and adequate. There's plenty offered and it's of good quality and it's tasty. One of the problems with this place is that it is intended to be an independent place, however, in order to keep it full, which it is now, they tend to let people who really need to be in assisted living come here. This somewhat undermined their original goal of having independent residents. They do not have nighttime supervision for people that get sick, so they always call the ambulance and fire department. They're almost always short of help in the dining room because they can't seem to keep their experienced help in adequate numbers. Their food is great, but service is very slow.

Vista del Rio was the facility my mom was going to move into, but her doctor said that she should stay where she is at. Nevertheless, the people were very good, friendly, and nice. The girl we had was wonderful. There were activities too. They gave us lunch and it was very good. Other than the dinner, breakfast, and lunch, they also offer cleaning, bedsheet changes, and laundry. They showed us an efficiency room downstairs, which was great. The only thing I did not like about that is that the steps were horrible; however, they did have an elevator.

I placed my mom at Vista Del Rio, but she's unhappy. The new manager is top notch. He's on top of any situation right away and that has really made my mother and me happier. The building is old and falling apart. Sometimes they have to have sandwiches to eat because the waterline broke in the kitchen or the ovens broke, and this is all within a few weeks. The chef really comes through and still is able to serve them something to ea,t but the company really needs to go in there and understand that this is an old building that needs updating. At first, it presents itself as being beautiful and fantastic and then you find that old age is catching up with it. I was horrified to see that the staff there does not know safety measures for dealing with the elderly. I saw an elderly woman fall in the lobby area. The residents and staff ran and they just picked her up and put her back on her seat. I tried to intercede and the office manager told me to go away because it's too crowded. Within 30 seconds of falling, they had lifted her up and had her standing on her feet and then walked her to the elevator and put her in the elevator. My other complaint is I am having to cook and freeze meals and take them to my mother, so that she can heat them up in her microwave and eat, because with the exception of breakfast, the quality of the food at lunch and dinner is disgusting. One day, nobody touched their food because they said it was horrible. Maintenance is excellent. Their new recreational director just quit, but they're keeping things up. I went one morning to have breakfast with my mom, and the breakfast was sensational. I've never had such a fabulous breakfast. But while we were eating, this woman walked by and introduced herself and said she's the manager that oversees several of the properties. I figured breakfast was great because someone higher up was coming that morning and was going to see. I liked that it's all enclosed. My mother doesn't have to go outside to go to the dining room.

My mother is going to Vista del Rio this October. We chose it because their rooms were a lot bigger than the other places, and they offered outdoor patios which were really nice, but mainly it's because of the pricing. Everything else is pretty comparable to the majority of the places that we visited, but this is the one that she likes the best. When we were there, they had a little silent auction going on. They have ice cream socials, music, and arts and crafts, which my mom is really big into. She will stay pretty busy there, which is good. They have three meals a day. We really appreciate them taking their time with us during the many times that she has visited with other people, like my brother and her friends; they were so accommodating. The one-bedroom was really nice. There was a nice big living room and even though there's just a kitchenette, there's still plenty of space to put a little table and chairs along with living room furniture, so it was a really nice size.

Vista del Rio was excellent. I have nothing negative to say about it at all. The place was very clean, nice, and had plenty of room. The residents appeared to be happy and satisfied. The staff was very attentive. I didn't have to wait for somebody to ask me what I need.

I like the way that Vista del Rio is laid out. Every room has a balcony, and they have a movie room, a room for food, a room for exercises, etc. They take the residents places in a bus to visit different places and even take you to your doctors' appointments. They serve three meals a day and there's housekeeping once a week.

Vista del Rio was a very nice place. I liked it very much except they just give you an apartment. Assisted care is done by a third party. If you need any kind of care at all, you'd have to hire somebody else to come in and do it. I didn't like that I have to pay every time somebody walks into the room. I saw activities, and the residents were very happy. They had a little pool at the back.

The lady that took me around Vista del Rio was wonderful and quite knowledgeable, and I got to see everything I needed to see. The place was beautifully clean. The people I met and talked to were very friendly. The studio room was so small. The activities were fine, but the swimming pool was pretty small. It was three stories with an elevator. They had buses that would take the residents to activities. I only wanted one meal a day, but they serve three meals.

Vista del Rio's staff were all nice. Everybody was nice. They sat me on a table with a bunch of people who were already eating and all seemed pretty nice, but they were all my parents' and grandparents' age. The dining area, rooms, and apartments were nice. Some of them had limited kitchens and some had full kitchens.

My parents have an apartment at Vista del Rio. Everything is going well. The staff is very nice and supportive. The food isn't as good, but it's edible and nutritious. They only have a one-bedroom, but overall, they're very happy there. I really like it but the food assortment could be better.

Vista del Rio was OK and wasn’t my favorite. They were nice, but it just wasn’t what we’re looking for. The facilities were OK, and the staff was fine. I didn’t like that they had set times for meals rather than having all-day dining, so that was one of the things I didn’t like about it. The amenities were OK. They were certainly less expensive but weren’t as nice.

I needed to find a place for my mom to go when she was discharged from a rehab facili ty. I only had a few days to do this. I had looked at several places and I hadn't found any place that fit mom"said budget. Each place was very small but very expensive. Vista del Rio was spacious and affordable. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They made us feel very welcome. The care givers were awesome. The reason my mom is leaving is because she has improved so much that she can return to her own home and we will have some in home health care for her. Thank you for all you've done for our family.

The physical plant of the community is nice, though somewhat dated. The activity program is full and creative. The outside health care agency providing supportive services for supplemental health care lacks continuity.
