first tour already signed papers

We just signed for mom to live at New Forest Estates. This place is fabulous inside and out. The residents are happy and friendly. I feel confident my mother will be well cared for in this community and she will make many new friends to share her golden years with like souls.

Thorough review from current resident

Review of Assisted Living Pacifica New Forest Estates, San Antonio, TX. I am a baby boomer who recently made the transition from independent living (IL) to assisted living (AL) at Pacifica New Forest Estates in San Antonio, Texas. It was very difficult for me to admit that I couldn’t take care of myself. As a public relations professional for more than 50 years, I have always been very independent and self supporting. I am fortunate that New Forest Estates had an opening in their assisted-living facility. I moved here early in January and now wish that I had made the move MUCH sooner. The Spanish hacienda style AL building is homey and attractively decorated. The studio apartments are small (about 400 ft.²) but well designed for those of us who need a little something extra. There are large windows, a modest Galley Kitchen, with microwave and mini fridge provided. Plenty of built in storage is handy for kitchen and other items. Luxuriate in the walk-in shower, a part of the large fully outfitted bathroom, which comes equipped with a built-in seat, hand held sprayer, and plenty of grab bars. The closet is large and easily accessible.. AL has many types of activities, such as art, music and outings using the New Forest Estates handicapped-accessible bus.. There is a cozy dining room and several living areas complete with large televisions and a baby grand piano, as well as a library and craft room. The building is secure 27/7, with a professional always on duty. I like the staff here very much. They all work to make us comfortable and happy. I feel like I am part of an extended family. AL staff members include [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], and [name removed]. We AL residents also have access to the large IL swimming pool area as well as an in-house beauty shop. It is a pet friendly facility, allowing cats, small leash-trained dogs, and birds. All meals, Housekeeping and laundry are included as part of the reasonable rent, along with cable TV. So-o-o, what are you waiting for? Executive Director [name removed] handles AL admissions and would be delighted to hear from you. His phone number is [removed] and email address is [removed] Don’t miss out! – [Name removed]

Peaceful Transition

I have known of this community for many years now as I have had several tours with [name removed]. I have always noticed their personalized engagement with the residents which is what sets them apart from other communities I have toured over the years. [Name removed] and [name removed] were very helpful in the recent transition of my mother, this team is very detailed. Every question I had was answered and any sense of doubt that my mother had was eradicated. They all seem sincere from the director to the wonderful lady in the business office, [name removed]. I look forward to having my mother here!
