White Sands, a CCRC in La Jolla, CA
5.0

White Sands facility has everything from independent living to skilled nursing. They have a lot of activities to offer, it is in a really beautiful location. We could not be happier with our decision, we know our mother is safe there. The food is excellent with a wide range of choices. The rooms are very nice and adequate, they have many options to choose from. Our loved one has a beautiful view.

Rancho Santa Fe Villa in San Diego, CA
5.0

My wife and I have been at this 6 bed assisted living facility for almost 3 years. It is a beautiful home in a prestige area of north San Diego. The home has panoramic views of the rolling hills. Sometimes we see the hot air balloons go by. The facility is clean and tidy. My wife is 83 and I am 88. She is assisted living/memory and I am independent living. She has been in Hospice bedridden with Alzheimer's for 2 years and has to hand fed with pureed food and totally cared for. I'm sure she wouldn't get the care she has here at a larger facility. The caregivers are all friendly and extremely caring. Very nice meals are served 3 times a day. The Director of Activities plays music on the keyboard. Singing makes the residents come alive. He also has taught art painting with acrylics. I have never painted before, now I've painted over 30 pictures on canvas, surfboards, guitars etc. It gives me something to do and keeps my brain active. This is a superior facility compared to other ones I have heard about. On a scale of 1 to 5 I would rate Rancho Santa Fe Villa a 5.

There are not a ton of activities at La Costa but my aunt does participate in a few. She has a patio and enjoys going outside. The staff are very nice and helpful. I have not tried the food but my aunt seems to like it and it seems to have a lot of nutrients.
