Review originally written on A Place For Mom


I'm moving OUT of Villa Valencia after a year. There is no way this place is a five star facility! I don't know who rated it, but they are so so wrong. The help here is superb. The employees are kind, pleasant, thoughtful, accommodating, amusing, enjoyable to be around. However, management is a penny-pinching, rule crazy, nosey, overbearing group, with the corporate office back east dictating EVERYTHING. To name just a few of the problems here, I offer the following: 1) For an entire year, both the interior and exterior has been torn up with a remodel. And this remodel does NOT affect any of the apartments. As of this writing, the interior does not look much different from its original state. And for a year we have not had hot breakfasts, a salad bar, and other things. 2) The food is abysmal. The cheapest meats, poorly prepared, fat and grissel loaded; the fish offered is dry and all high mercury loaded with frequently the "bottom feeders." The chickens are smaller than Cornish Game Hens and you only receive 1/4 of the chicken. Everything is covered with a sauce or gravy to hide the fat, the color, the dryness or the size of the serving. The menu changes every five weeks, but NOTHING NEW IS ADDED IN THE NEW MENU. Same dishes over and over and over, but sometimes with a new name. Instead of rice in stuffed peppers or stuffed cabbage, they use OATMEAL. It's horrible tasting; its like eating a rock! Desserts, while freshly made, are higher in sugar content than is normal. We assume that is to make seniors forget how bad are the soup, salads, and entrees. While the dietitian claims we get 4 ounces of protein -- the recommended serving should be 6 ounces for seniors -- residents have weighed the protein meal content and found it runs closer to 2 ounces, at best. If it weighs more than two, it is because of the uneatable fat, etc. About ONCE A MONTH we do get four ounces of protein in a meal. In addition the beef liver is NEVER calves liver, but a hunk of liver so large it covers an entire dinner plate. THAT IS ONE VERY OLD COW! The smell and taste is nauseating. AND -- all recipes come from "corporate" and must be followed by the local chefs and cooks. Yet, Five Star claims they have an internationally famous chef! NOWHERE IS HIS NAME TO BE FOUND; not on any list anywhere! There is more on this chain, but space is limited. What I offer is just a sampling in TWO areas. Ah, and we just received a notice that our rent will go up $105.00 a month starting in January, 2018. If it weren't for the "worker bees", I'd give this facility one star.

My friend invited me here and it was a good place for her. No place is perfect but it was a good value and my aunt loved it.

No Complaints! Mom Loves It

I had the pleasure of having my mom live at this community. The community is well-kept and clean at its best. The staff are attentive, compassionate, and check on Mom everyday. My mom has joined in some activities and so far it is okay. The meals are great, there is enough to be full and plenty of options for Mom to choose from. Overall, we love it here and I would come her to live also! I absolutely recommend this community!
