Vista Del Mar Senior Living in Long Beach, CA
4.8

My Brother has been a resident of Vista del Mar Senior Living for nearly 3 years, and we were very happy with our choice. We had problems finding another Assisted Living facility in Culver City, and Vista del Mar was perfect. It has met all of my Brother's needs and he has been very happy there. We have since found another Assisted Living facility in Culver City, and that is the only reason my Brother is moving. The new facility will have big shoes to fill. The Staff at Vista del Mar, (especially [Name removed]) should be proud to be associated with a great Senior Living Center. Thank all of you.

First of all, I chose this community because it was affordable and it met the necessary requirements. One of the main reasons was that they have friendly staff . I visited other communities and that seemed so sterile and the staff personalities were so dry, At this community, the staff are friendly and willing to interact and carry a dialogue with the residents My mother loves to be active and this community offers her that opportunity if she desires to, The admissions director has been a wealth of information and helpful to us as well.
