My tour review

I was not impressed with this community. When we go here the person that was supposed to tour was not there. They called around and could not find the person and the front desk lady had to do the tour. We asked her how much the rate was and she was not able to give exact information. the person that was supposed to meet with us followed up a week later and we had already made a decision.

My mothers lap blanket disappeared in two weeks here. The staff is slow. There are bugs in the apartments that are supposed to be sprayed someday. The place smells, the attention is minimal and the food is either wrong or minimal if you don't ask. Might as well be slummin.

Transitions are tuff

There are some staff that are really good and there are some that are sleep walking. This community works for the care that they are able to provide for my loved one. A lot depends on availability at the time that you are looking for care. Among the other communities this is probably one of the best that there are and it came with high recommendations. There is the potential for great care but my loved ones circumstances can make it somewhat difficult. My loved one was on her on for a long time and she is very strong willed so the transition has been trying.

Golden Pond is Golden

This is a good community. Golden Pond is the best I have found for my loved one. I like that it is in more a neighborhood setting and not on a busy street. This building is next to a school, and it is fun to see the youth around on the community. The staff is very nice and accommodating to the resident's needs. I wish the community had more activities outside of the community. They do have weekly outings, I just wish it was more for my loved one. They have monthly meetings for the residents to voice what they would like to see happen more. The have a meal plan, a bistro, and more. I think overall it is an awesome place.

Exceptional Quality/exceptional value/exceptional people

This is a family environment community. They genuinely care for the people that they serve and they are willing to go the extra mile. They have activities like bingo, movie night, contest during different holidays, entertainment that comes in and more for the residents.

Don't leave your loved ones

This place is horrible. Rooms are broken down and have cockroaches. Food is horrible and you have to eat when told. You lose all independence. The staff will not help and will demean your loved one. Please do not leave your family there. You will regret it.

Don't leave your loved ones

My biggest regret is leaving my parent there. The pictures are nothing like reality. The rooms are broken down and have cockroaches. The cabinets and drawers are broken and don't work. The heater and A/C never work. The food options are very limited and you starve if you don't like it or don't feel like eating when told to. They don't follow needs such as soft foods or help cutting things. If you are not independent, you will suffer. They do not want to help people and will make it known. They don't answer the call button for hours. They won't help with mobility issues, so your family member will sit there helpless. They ridicule, mock, and demean residents and then try to convince the family that their family member is old and senile. The medicines are not administered properly, if at all, and medicines go missing regularly. Maybe this facility is okay for independent people, but if they need any assistance, please do not leave your loved one there.

My review Golden Pond Retirement Community (Claremont Retirement Management Services)

Our family was able to do an in person tour and it was great, but it was an older facility. It is also close to 10 miles outside of Sacramento so the location was not ideal. However, they continued to follow up after the tour and were super helpful.

Very Happy!!!

My mom and dad moved in about 5 months ago. They are very well cared for by the Golden Pond staff. We are very please with our decision. Some of the other places were too big and we felt our mom and dad weren’t getting good attention from the staff at the other homes. They need more medical care now and are looked after well. Thank you Golden Pond staff for making my parents last years of life enjoyable! Sincerely, [name removed]

a truly caring staff

They have been amazing at keeping an eye out on mom. She was not at all happy to leave her home. They work constantly to keep her involved, watch out for problems, and anticipate where she will need guidance and interaction on their part. I'm sure we waited longer than we should have to make her move. They have made the most of it. Even dealing with her unhappy partner, that has complicated life immensely. Thanks so much to them for their patience.

needs improvement

nice facility, good food. unfortunately poorly administered, inadequate training for activities staff and leadership. Poor communication and follow through. No creativity in activities. Bus for activities breaks down frequently and no backup plan in place so activities limited or cancelled. Complaints have been voiced but no follow through, just lip-service.

Unenchanting

I was looking for a place to live and came across Golden Pond, which reminded me of that movie with [Removed]. Unfortunately, I was unenchanted by the food and how dark it was. Just touring it, I could tell it would be too depressing for me to live there.

Wonderful Choice

My sister is very happy being here. She is doing the activities and enjoying them. The staff is fantastic very kind and friendly and they are willing to communicate with me to let me know how my sister has been doing. She is eating all the food from what I have been told by the staff so I am assuming she likes it.I have found the community to be clean and well kept. I would recommend them highly.

Very good value

My sister has been a resident for over a year. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Whenever there has been an emergency situation, they have responded timely and appropriate action was taken. They are very attentive to her individual needs. The apartments are the roomiest that we were able to find, with a very good amount of storage space. The food is adequate, and includes some very tasty soups. It is a very good value.
