Wellness Care Senior Living in Oak View, CA
5.0

My mom has been at Autumn Years for over a year now. They have been unfailingly warm and helpful, to us as well as to her. We took care of Mom for two years and understood that it wouldn't be an easy matter to work with her emotional swings, yet the staff at Autumn Years has been beyond wonderful. There always seems to be some activity going on, yet the staff gently encourages the residents to participate, never pushing. I can sense Mom's comfort with knowing her own routine and feeling cared for. Deirdre [last name removed], the director, has always taken care of everything with efficiency and kindness. I really can't recommend this facility highly enough.

My dad and his little dog lived at Mariposa for several years. The caregivers and med techs really care for the residents. The activities vary and engage every resident and the food is good. Family activities are planned so that all family members can participate. The management team is great to work with. They communicate with families frequently so that we know what is going on in the community. I get peace of mind knowing that my dad is well taken can of.
