Monterey Peninsula III in Corona, CA
3.8

My dad's only been there about a month and a half. Overall, I'd have to say a four out of five. There were a lot of factors taken into account: location, convenience. I am very happy with their helpfulness and their ability to answer questions Their patients, including my father, are somewhat far along as far as mental decline so activities aren't really an option anyway.

Vista Del Mar Senior Living in Long Beach, CA

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.
