An objective, accurate description of Monte Vista Village

My 96 year-old mother has resided at Monte Vista VIllage for 3 years. She rents a 1-bedroom unit and although her vision is rapidly deteriorating. she is very cogent, and her memory is excellent. Two characteristics stand out about Monte Vista: a serious theft problem and tasteless, poor quality food. My mother has had had jewelry, money and various personal effects stolen while she is at lunch. This had happened numerous times. She cannot lock her doors because the management has keys to every apartment and the staff often walk in unannounced. They consider the theft problem to be a memory problem of the residents. This may play a role but a very small one. It is really a serious problem that no one does anything about. The food is a travesty. It is tasteless, unseasoned, and poor quality. Most residents feel this way but are afraid to speak up. I do not know where these other glowing reviews came from but they do not accurately describe Monte Vista Village.

Peace and Serenity... this place is a little slice of heaven

I moved my 80+ year old mother to Monte Vista Village approx. 3 years ago. She was having a difficult time processing the passing of my younger brother, and lived a 3 hour drive away. She was falling into depression and losing interest in her own life. When she told me she was ready to move back to San Diego I was relieved. I started looking for a place for her to live (I have way too many stairs in my house for her to come live with me). I was so fortunate to find Monte Vista Village, a hidden oasis, right in my own neighborhood! I've lived and grown up here my whole life, and have passed by this location countless number of times and never knew it was there. However, I did notice when the time was right, and thought "I'll have to stop by and take a look at this place." It looks very unassuming from the 'outside'... nice brick buildings, some garages on one side, obviously some kind of community housing. But when I walked 'inside' I was very pleasantly surprised to see the beautiful, lush landscaping. Meandering sidewalks passing by a shaded koi pond with benches for sitting; beautiful old trees that have been there for decades providing shaded areas for sitting and enjoying the fresh air, well tended flowering plants and lawns. I couldn't believe all this was 'hidden' away and it was like finding a little treasure. I gathered information from the very helpful, courteous and friendly staff and passed it on to my mother. She said "yes". So I proceeded with the task of moving her back to San Diego. I can't even begin to tell you what a difference this place has made, not only to me and my mom, but the whole extended family. Peace of mind is priceless. I know my mom is happy and well cared for here at Monte Vista Village. Because of the convenient location, I can visit her several times a week if my schedule allows, or less often when I get too busy, and not feel guilty that she's not being 'cared for'. The staff here is so friendly, warm and inviting that they feel like they're a part of 'my family' as well. They provide many opportunities throughout the year for the residents' families to come join the festivities, and they know how to do it right. First class, top notch, yet down home comfortable. They provide many daily activities for the residents to join in on, provide delicious and healthy meals (they even deliver!! My mom loves this!), vacuum, clean and put fresh linens on weekly, and either phone or physically come to the door and check on her if they have not heard from her!!! I feel SO LUCKY to have found this place for my mom. I don't know what other retirement facilities may be like, because I got lucky the first time around and found the right place. I absolutely LOVE the staff at Monte Vista Village... [Removed] always has a warm hug for me and my mom, [Removed] is so lively, perky and quick witted he has me laughing and he always seems to put the right touch on the special decorations at party time, [Removed] has the smile and kindness of an angel and is so tender with the residents, [Removed] is absolutely lovely, as is [Removed], ... I'm so sorry I can't remember the names of all the wonderful staff that makes this experience of aging less scary for me and my family. I want to say "THANK YOU SO MUCH". You are making all the difference in the world to my family and I.

We value and appreciate your feedback and are so glad you enjoyed our beautiful grounds and gardens. I understand your hesitation about the size and location of our assisted living. The value of our assisted living lies in its intimate size, allowing for personalized attention and care for our residents, including one-on-one escorts to any location on campus. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions about Monte Vista Village. Take care, Tracy Walter
