    Our tour at AlmaVia of San Francisco was good, but we wanted to put my mom in a place that is more agreeable with her personality. She likes being active and engaged with people; however, it didn't look like there was a lot of communication with the other clientele. They had a lot of art and craft activities, television, and music. The staff was very pleasant and engaging. From what I saw, I didn't see any problem with the food. Everything seemed to be fresh, and the dining hall was very clean.

    At AlmaVia, initially, there was a confusion about the appointment that was made, but they were very good about finding a replacement person to give us a tour, and he was excellent. He was one of the nursing people on staff, so he answered a lot of our questions. Activities seemed fine to me and included art classes, music appreciation classes, exercise, and social things. The rooms were very nice, clean, and spacious. He showed us many different layouts. I was looking for my mother.
