Our family had an in person tour and it was a nice tour experience

I think Cogir of Vallejo Hills is a decent place. You'll definitely need to be your patients advocate. I had to babysit my moms stay, which is what I thought I was paying them for. Because of that, I didn't have a 100% peace of mind. My understanding is - she was there for respite stay for 14 days vs long-term. When I talked to the business manager, they let me know that the level of care can differ when in respite. She needed very simple things, for example: she had a strict diet due to some gastrointestinal issues and needed help putting lotion on. She was very limited on what she could eat from the dining area; so she ended up eating the same meal for the two weeks she was there. I was led to believe that the chef could work with her and with residents like her, but it seems like that was only the case for long-term residents. On day one when I was already out of town, they had to call 911 to transport her to the ER. They called me because they needed direction on what to do, although it was spelled out on her record. Upon leaving the hospital, the ER called me asking how should they discharge her back to the community. There was no ownership on behalf of Cogir to get her back to the community. Plan B would've been to transport her via ambulance with my okay, but thankfully I had a neighbor who was available to take her back. Cogir never followed up with me to let me know she was settled or had made it back. It was a lot of following up on my end, which was kind of unsettling. The facility was well-maintained, but there was not a lot of follow up after her visit to ask how her stay was. And for the cost I paid, I did expect some level of that. They have gone through some managerial changes, so their level of ownership may have been deluded because of all the organization changes. The location of the community was very ideal for me, and the everyday staff themselves were very attentive and they made her feel welcomed. I just had a concern with the business management staff, and their overall ownership. There was such high turnover and I'm unsure if that's a good or bad thing.
We used this facility for a short term respite care. The staff had to call 911 for my loved one. Once at the hospital she couldn't get back to the facility. The meals offered didn't work with my loved ones diet. I had to stock her personal refrigerator with foods she could eat. They said they could accommodate her meals had she been there longer. Not for respite. The staff are nice, it is well maintained. They appeared to take really good care of her. They charge fees for additional for care providing and that was explained to us in the beginning. We didn't have follow up after we left. I didn't know if they do reach out afterwards for follow up.
Touring Cogir of Vallejo Hills was a strange experience - it felt like touring Hogwarts. The facility was great. The views were great. The grounds were pretty. But it was like a maze. Even the lady giving the tour at one point wasn't sure where to go. If someone who worked there was having problems, them Mom would not have been able to navigate it. Every unit she showed us was beautiful. There were mostly able bodied people there, which would be great if you have a loved one at that functioning level. We just wanted a place that was more our loved one's pace. I think for anyone fully functioning with no cognitive decline, it would be a great place. I would live there myself! It was just really hard to navigate.

Thank you very much for your review. Cogir of Vallejo Hills is definitely more independent living than assisted living. It's location on the hill makes it a great place to exercise and our active folks really enjoy it there. We do offer assisted living in the central building which does allow those residents to walk only a short distance to most everything. Cogir of North Bay - also in Vallejo about 2 miles away, does offer a smaller experience as this building is tucked in the side of a hill and the property is easy to navigate and is cozy and quiet. Let us know how we can help, and thank you again and have a great day!
The value for the money is what sticks out the most to me, there is no comparison. It is a high end area and the apartments are very large and spacious, I am comfortable here. The grounds are just beautiful, my balcony off my apartment looks out to a fountain with flowers and tall trees and it is lovely. Overall it has been a good experience.

Thank you for your outstanding review! We are thrilled that you love where you live and Cogir of Vallejo Hills is meeting all your needs and then some. Thank you again and have a wonderful day!
I liked the community a lot. The staff were very friendly. Our exposure to this community was limited due to the pandemic. I would say to people this community is great for their loved ones who are more on the independent side.
Vallejo Hills it is a nice place for your loved one to stay. The community is tranquil, The nursing staff has been great to deal with. The food has been good, and the room is excellent for my loved one.
They have have some good staff and longevity of staff, which is a good sign. The food is very good, they had an open salad bar and many options. We chose this community for its location and close to our family, it was nice looking place. Only draw back for my mother is that the community is on a hill and she enjoys taking walks.
Employees are always good about watching out for mess and tending to it quickly. Staff is always helpful and respectful. They always air on the formal side, which is not necessary but appreciated! The community is expensive, however that price is reflected in the great staff and well-kept community. Activities have been great, however with the ongoing pandemic, many of the activities have been put on hold.
My mom likes the art and exercise classes. My mom used to be able to walk outside in her other community but the area around the building is rather hilly and it is harder for her to walk with her walker in the area around the building. The doors in the garden area are heavy and hard for my mom to open so she has not been able to access that area on her own . The chef is good and has been there for 20 years. They have a good salad bar. The chef will customize meals upon request.
Lovely facility. Staff very nice. Price out of our budget range.
We visited cornerstone and found it to be very nice. I am continuing to look for a second bathroom so I will continue looking.
This is a safe, clean and friendly place. They are providing fairly good care. Her room is close to the dining area. They will clean 1x a week and they do her bedding 2x a week. They are dispensing her medication for her. They are doing a 5 point check up when someone will go check on her. My mom is refusing to engage she will only eat in her room. I wished the staff would try harder to get her engaged or at least have a plan on how to get her to join the others or just to get out and eat in the dining room. I would recommend this community to an active senior.
I’m really glad my Father was able to pick this facility as a place to live. When he and I first toured this place, they actually had a car show going on. The cars were from the 60s, or even older than that, and there was popcorn, BBQ, and hotdogs. They also have a bunch of other activities like trips to certain places, poker, card games, and they even play Wii bowling. The community is actually being renovated at this time. The only thing I am disappointed in is that they have yet to paint the baseboards and replace the rug in the main area. I’m so glad my dad is happy here and I would recommend this facility.
The community worked out fine and we are happy with choice. The advisor from A Place For Mom was so helpful and I thank him for his help.
I like the care at this community for my mom. The staff are nice, but right now she is wanting special caregivers. They have activities that are offered, she enjoying the trips away from the community. We like that the community is clean and maintained. We would recommend this community to others wanting good care.
The staff at Brookdale have been helpful and answer my questions. The food is very good. They keep the community clean and they have nice grounds. They offer a number of activities. So far this is a good place to live.
Some of the apartments need updating. I like the staff the most, they're great. The cafeteria food is not great and it needs improvement. The food is not very good there.
I wish there was a food category because it would get a 5. They have healthy meals that are really good and that is huge. I cannot say enough good things, it is bright and there is just a positive atmosphere. The employees and most of the residents are friendly.
