Good location

I chose Avila because it is in a good location so I could walk to things. The apartment sizes here vary, I have a studio with a bathroom and kitchenette. In my opinion, the food is not very good. Some things are ok, but I have only eaten 1 really good meal from the time I have been here. They serve a lot of chicken so there is not a lot of variety. Every week the facility does do a happy hour and they have basic activities such as bingo and puzzles. I would question who runs this place, it is run by a corporation in San Diego and no one can make any changes unless it goes through them. Overall, I would recommend.

Very pretty facility. Large, like a high-class hotel. Busy/noisy communal rooms, nice eating setups...dining and bistro. garden lovely. Getting a private one bedroom apt. off of the more remote, less noisy areas off the main atrium on floors 1 or 2 would be the best for Mom. However, we did not explore "custodial care" and if this facility provides that. But I think the size of the place overwhelmed Mom. FYI: Mom came down with bad flu bug that evening so was actually sick during the tour without our realizing it. This more than likely influenced her feelings about the place a t the time.

Thank you for filling in the Gap!

I have watched a 95 year old grumpy woman, bloom and enjoy her life once again with friends. The laughter and smile in her eyes has returned thanks to the staff and facility. She doesn't hide in her room, she is never in it. If not for yoga, activities around town, crafts, horse races, tea parties, ice cream socials, bridge, etc. While the extra attention that the staff puts on their dining experiences for their residents, makes them feel extra special too! Way to go Manse! With this ever changing age of our parents living into their prime, Thank you for making them feel welcomed and giving our generation a safe and secure environment!

Staff Is Really Gracious And Kind

The staff is very helpful. Maybe communication could be a little better. Had a change of cooks and took some time to adjust. Staff is really gracious and kind.

I Couldn't Ask For Better

Caregivers and wellness people are great, the servers are great and friendly. The Manse is doing a good job. I couldn't ask for better. The staff are happy, have good ideas and I love them like they were my own grandchildren.

Beautiful but Costly

It's a beautiful place but out of our price range. My dad wasn't real excited about it when he saw it. It's right in the downtown section of San Luis Obispo. You can pretty much walk everywhere you want to go. I'd say about 90% of our reason or not going there was the cost.

More independent living with a little care but very nice appearance

I don't think they were able to deal with her memory issues because that's been a progressive thing, she had been there for 3 years and she seemed to decline and he behavior was not consistent. When she would get upset, basically from what I was told, is that they weren't really dealing with it and they didn't seem to know how to deal with it. It was like an upscale, really really nice hotel so appearance wise it was really nice but I think they're more of an independent living place with some assistance but they do have RNs 24 hours a day. We just felt that as she declined it wasn't the best palce for her.
