It's a very nice facility.

It's a very nice facility. It's a really good quality place to go. I'm really happy with it. This is more of a memory care situation.

My Visit To The Community

We really liked this community when we visited. It was clean and the person that took us on tour was sweet. They offer a pool and they have a spanish style courtyard. This community would have been our first choice, however they did not have any rooms available.

Looks Great but No Vacancy

There was no vacancy and they didn't know when they'll be able to get my mother in. For her care needs we really only had two choices and they didn't have a vacancy so that kind of made our decision for us. It looks like a wonderful place - very clean and modern. I have heard from one of our doctors and they said it's a good place. They didn't have any vacancy so we just moved on to the next option.

I toured with Bonnie about ...

I toured with Bonnie about 2 years ago. I know a few people who used to live there and they said that La Vida Real is very focused on money and 'nickels & dimes' you to death. Seemed expensive and too far away at the time but I'd like to see it again.
