Pasadena Highlands
4.1

We chose Pasadena Highlands because it looked like it would be a good fit for my brother and it has turned out to be just that, he is very happy here. The staff are very friendly and were helpful with the whole move in experience. That was especially helpful for me since I live so far away. I would recommend the facility to other families looking.

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.
