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.

I feel the staff have taken great care of my loved one, and feel safe with my loved one being here. This would be a great place for your loved one to be. The staff are very open, accommodating and care to the family with our questions or concerns about our loved one. The food is good and it is a balanced diet for the residents. The room, laundry, linen changes, housekeeping, utilities and transportation are including in the monthly rate. Dressing assistance, memory care, medication management, and bathing assistance are some of the care types the community has to offer.

The bill collector just raised the prices on specific care. My loved one has had personal belongings stolen. None of the staff seem to be doing anything about this. They've not encouraged my loved one to participate in any of the activities they have available.
