I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My brother is very happy at Holiday Villa East, but it is a little expensive. Nevertheless, it has been very nice and working out quite well. When I come down to visit my brother, I have a place to go and park under the building. They have a library. My brother likes his room. He also likes going down for the meals. He enjoys eating with the other clients. All the people I have met there have been very nice. My brother has used the podiatrists when they come; he likes having that available there. He goes to a couple of different exercise classes and likes doing those.

When I got to Holiday Villa East, I was greeted by the front desk person. They let me into the garage. There was a lot of activity. A lot of the folks there were using walkers or wheelchairs. The rooms were fine, but my mom would want more of a little apartment than just a room. The people were friendly. It was a nice, clean, and bright facility. The gal showed me the activities list, and they offered recreation and exercises.

Holiday Villa East didn’t seem to have a lot going on. The rooms were small and I found them a little bit depressing. There didn’t seem to be a lot of activities for the residents. It didn’t look as active as the other places I went to.

Holiday Villa is basically an apartment building, and if you need assisted living, you contract that separately. I didn't think it was that good. They had an elevator since it was at least three stories. They were in the process of doing renovations, but it was clean and fine.

Holiday Villa East was nice. I liked that they had a little garden area. It's just a little bit farther, and my friends want to stay really close to where they're used to. They have card games and somebody coming in for therapy, where you move your body a little or if you need any extra care. The staff was lovely, just happy, smiling, friendly, caring people, very amicable, and pleasant. The people were more upbeat.

This little community is charming. It seems clean, however could use some updates. Its not as updated as some of the other facilities.

Provider Response

I am one of the only "mom & pops" left in Southern California. My community is not like the fancy corporate facilities that charge at least 30% - 50% more. We are right in the middle of refreshing and updating our common areas. All our resident units are updated for you to see on my website. Most importantly, you will experience the very personal down home touch that my family run business is renown for.
