I love Golden Care but having issue with A Place for Mom. Golden Care is great and I'm pleased, but I went on my own to the facility, not through A Place for Mom.

The Ivy at Golden Gate in San Francisco, CA
4.2

Most staff are very friendly, with occasional lapses in service (too busy to help dress; slow, slow kitchen sometimes); coordination of offsite pharmacy and medicine technicians could be better; like in any health care setting, patient advocacy (usually a family member) is essential (especially during the initial period) to insuring that the care is appropriate, complete and timely. Supervisory staff & management are very responsive.

I think they do a fantastic job at Carlton Senior Living! I helped find this place for a friend, and our experience has been a very good one. It's a beautiful facility, and the staff are all very kind, caring, and professional. They've got all sorts of activities, good food, and a great social atmosphere. The other residents all seem very active and friendly! I'd highly recommend it, if you're looking for senior care in the area!
