Pacific Grove Senior Living review
4+. I have had a very good year here. Last year when I had to move, keeping my two little dogs was my first priority and in fact I found Pacific Grove Senior Living on the SPCA website on a list of dog friendly places. I have a nice little studio on the 55Plus level, which is just like living in an ordinary apartment. I do not pay for dining or housekeeping. I buy my own food at Grove Market and use my own vacuum and cleaning supplies. So I do not know first hand what all this bad publicity is about. I do know that the staff is friendly and hardworking and the activities are varied and enjoyable. The best part of living here is participating in the friendly, accepting and lively community of fellow residents.

Unique residence in walkable community making progress
This facility has recently gone through a management change. When we moved in the beginning of September of this year, the administrative staff was in disarray and people were being fired or resigning. There was no orientation or welcome. We were very disappointed. However, in the three months we have been here, we have grown to appreciate our fellow residents and the workers who provide food, care and activities. Our apartment is warm, clean and comfortable with a great view of the Monterey bay. Our residence is within walking distance to downtown Pacific Grove and ocean. It is only 10 minutes from the excellent local hospital as well as many restaurants and services. It is a historic building built in the 1920s as a hotel and made into a senior residence in the 1950s, it is unique and a very special building. Things are improving (my ratings were based on the staff, not management/administration). Also, my rating of value for cost was for our apartment only. If I were to rate the overall value for cost, including food, I would rate it at a 1. We would recommend Pacific Grove Senior Living to others, with the caveat that management is still getting their act together.

So Far So Good
They really are dog-friendly and have a very nice garden that dogs can run around in. The total dog count at the moment is 7, all of them small. The main problem is that the place has recently changed ownership and the new administration hasn't completely settled in yet. But they are very friendly and I think they are doing as well as they can.

Review for Pacific Grove Senior Living
It’s a great building undergoing many upgrades—a great location with friendly and happy staff and residents.Communication has been good. We picked this community, because it's an attractive apartment at a reasonable monthly rate. I want to be able to transition my Mother in Law to independent living when the time comes.

Pacifica Grove Senior Living
It is independent living so we cannot comment on care services, meals and dining and activities. Areas of improvement is that there are no ovens, microwave or venting in the small kitchens. No venting, tub in bathroom but otherwise we are happy. There is a vent in kitchen ceiling but no fan to move the odors out - we are just comparing this to an old apartment we had. Bathroom has no outside window along with no vent. A hood and power vent would be good in kitchen along with oven. We are using a toaster oven. In bathroom shower only with no vent is a concern for mold. Otherwise it's a nice place in a great location. The activities director is very friendly but we are limited to what we can participate in

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.

A Place for Mom has scored Pacific Grove Senior Living 9.3 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.
