More of a community for people that need a lot of care
My husband and I toured here when we were trying to find a place to live and we thought maybe we’d like it but when we went to take a tour, it seemed like the people that were there needed more help than what we did. However, from what we saw, they were keeping everything very clean. They have several levels of care available depending on what you need. They showed us around the whole place and showed us the areas where people needed the most care and then we went to the area where people needed the less care and they just really seemed to care for everyone. Just from what we could tell, they’re doing a very good job.

Considering the community is far away and it was not as nice looking, this was not the right fit. From the outside it looked like a dungeon but when you got into the building it looked nice. I noticed that it seemed crowded and I was not connecting with the atmosphere.

Great memory care!!
My mother has been recently transferred into the memory care unit at this community and so far I have been pleased with the care she has been receiving. The staff are very encouraging on helping her improve her nutrition and make sure to spend as much one on one time with her as they can. I also notice that every time I go to visit the facility is very cleaned and well maintained.

A nice place for care
I did tour this community. This was a reasonable option in value. The staff were nice and friendly and answered are questions. We were not able to see the food. We did see the activity room and it appeared to be alot of activities for everyone who is willing. I recommend this community for families to check out all that is offered.

Community needs updating!!
During our tour I noticed that the community needed a lot of updating and renovations, it looked very outdated and old. I didn't like how the bedrooms did not have bathrooms and how they where located down the hallway. I did notice that they had a great memory care with great staff.

It was beautiful but expensive.
It was beautiful but expensive. It seemed they went out of their way to craft things for each person individually. They had a lot of religious things, and brought school kids in for different things, we saw a Jr high student interviewing a resident when we were here.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the California regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about California regulations for Assisted Living.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Mercy Retirement and Care Center

Mercy Retirement and Care Center offers Studio and 1 Bedroom. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Mercy Retirement and Care Center 8 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
