Caring and understanding through out the process

We have been very satisfied with the care at Katella. My mother in law is happy & well taken care of. She’s making friends and having a good time.

Dignity and Compassion

My fiercely independent 94 year old mother was hospitalized with acute pneumonia. After being in hospital/skilled nursing for about 6 weeks, I was told that I needed to find her another place. She was not in a good place physically or mentally; I was distraught and panicked until I started talking to one of the directors at Katella Senior Living. I don’t know what I would have done without her support. She kept reassuring me that it would be okay. As soon as there was a room available for my mom, she got her in and made sure that it was a smooth transition. For the 1st time in weeks, I was no longer in crisis mode. Since my mom has been there she has regained most of her strength and her mind is as sharp as ever. I was worried that she would be upset to be in assisted living instead of at home, but the staff at Katella Senior Living treat her with such dignity, respect and compassion that I think she feels better about herself being there. You won’t find a better place.

Understanding Staff

I am pleased with the care that Katella Senior Living has been able to provide for my mother over the last six months. The staff has been very understanding about my mother’s chronic health issues and has made sustained efforts to help her.

We highly recommend Katella Senior Living Community

We had to move our grandmother into a care facility in the middle of the pandemic, which was an extra stressful and anxious process. The staff at Katella was so understanding and gracious. They went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable and to welcome our grandmother. They see her as a person, as part of their family, and continue to show great care for her health and well being. I'm so thankful we found her such a wonderful environment!

Would recommend this community

The care at Katella Senior is wonderful, the staff are very nice and the cleanliness of the community is very well kept. Our loved one really liked the meals in the beginning, now they are getting a little repetitive but they are still good. The activities are relatively limited, but they are a pet friendly community. A really lovely place, but it is close to a busy street and the parking is tricky.

Get a price nailed down

We are happy with the meals they are serving there, we are not concerned about the quality at all we know they are healthy, but the activities are still pretty limited. The community is in a very good location, however we do wish they disclosed the actual cost much sooner in the process. We felt mislead by the monthly charge and the fluctuation. We were just hoping for more clarification.

A great place for Mom

In January 2020 we reluctantly needed to place my 92-year-old mother in assisted living and went on the search for the best place. We interviewed many places and ended up feeling very comfortable with Katella Senior Living. What drew us to Katella was they had about 60 residents yet seemed like they were well connected with the needs of each person. They not only attended to the basic needs but also to the social needs of the group by having exercise class as well as one on one care. They not only seemed to care about my mom’s needs but also what she wanted and did their best to make her feel comfortable in her new living environment. I’m convinced that character is not shown in good times but in challenging times and that is where I believe Katella excels. Starting in March the world would change and we entered into a very unsettling time. The challenge we faced was how would my mom be cared for in this pandemic. Katella took this challenge and made the hard choices to protect our loved one and we couldn’t be more impressed with how they approached a very challenging time. Of course, it came with great sacrifice as we could not visit in person but honestly, that is a small price to pay for her safety. During the last six months they have kept us updated on the COVID situation and to this point have had only one resident infected and have done a great job on keeping all the residents as safe as they can. All I can say is in this unsettling time we are extremely grateful in the great care my mother has received and continue to receives at Katella and couldn’t recommend this place higher.
