The facility is really clean and the rooms like an apt. It is recently renovated. The food looks good but I have not been able to try it. The staff is easy to contact but sometimes communication could be better. I would definitely recommend this community to others.
I was referred by a placing agency to tour the facility the person gave me the tour was pleasant but while on the tour I noticed that the doors were wide open while the care staff was assisting one of the patients there...I was not ok with this. I also noticed that they are remodeling but there is much to be done to the facility. The memory care unit was what brought me to the facility and I was not impressed. The dining area had plates of old food piled along the sink and there were flies. I had hopes for this facility but I was quickly let down. There is definitely room for improvement here.
She like it a lot there. On first appearances, it is a welcoming and warm facility. The staff are friendly, courteous, ready to help, and with smiles on their faces. They are ready to answer any question we may have. We chose this community because the location and convenience to hospital. I would absolutely recommend this community to other families.
This community is economically affordable for some people. The whole make up of the place wasn't nice. The building was old but they said were planning to renovate it. The caregivers seemed lazy and had no passion for being there. The food wasn't that good, The building wasn't clean and had unpleasant odor.
Downey Retirement Center is great! They are personable, caring & take the time to know each of their residents. My dad says he's treated like royalty & he's very happy there. This is a great peace of mind for me, especially during this pandemic. I even received a personal call to inform me of the new procedures they put in place to ensure the safety of all residents during the pandemic. When I mentioned that my dad was probably going to be unhappy, the girl told me my dad was doing just fine. She knew exactly who my dad was, how he was doing & updated me on his current situation. That was so important to me. I receive updates & I'm always kept informed. My dad is quite capable in most situations but his condition will get worse. I love that as his level of care increases, his rates will not. If he needs to go to the bank, they will provide transportation. These are 2 things I did not find anywhere else! We love the staff too! You can tell they genuinely care about their residents & it's not just a paycheck for them. My dad was not happy about having to leave his home, but the staff at Downey Retirement made the transition so easy & comforting. Even during difficult times, my dad is very happy to be at Downey Retirement.
this place does not deserve not even a half of a star. We were referred by Kaiser for one of the places to tour. This place is across drug rehab place. My sister and I walked in and these guys across the way at the drug rehab place were cat calling and it was just uncomfortable. I see residents are outside and in the lobby. No lively entertainment or activity (everyone looks bored). The person who gave the tour was ok but while on the tour, you can smell urine in the elevator and going upstairs even worse. As we walked passed by, we saw staff assisting a resident with private care and the door was wide open. What happen to privacy? We decided to continue onto the next search.
Very frustrated as I’ve left at least 2 messages and no return calls. This place may be option for when AL waiver is approved.
