Amalia's Residence II in Santa Maria, CA
3.8

They have gone above and beyond. They're empathetic, sympathetic, and provide outstanding care. They work well with all of the members of our family as a whole. Our loved one has been a little bit of a harder to handle patient, and they've handled him just wonderfully. The facility itself is very clean and orderly, and they follow all the Covid protocols.

Santa Maria Terrace
5.0

The employees at Santa Maria Terrace are very helpful. My father has Dementia and can be difficult at times. They are very patience with him and he is settling in as well as can be expected. This is the only one that I found that would allow him to have his dog with him, Labrador.
