  • Inadequate care on every level

    When residents press the call button pendant, the caregivers come in and clear the button to show they responded, say they will be right back, but they never return. The director of nursing is an LPN not an RN. On my mother's last day at the community ,my mother asked for help to use the bathroom, , no one responded, she waited 5 hours, and after that they said" you know your mother is not the only resident here". During the height of the COVID pandemic, their screening process for visitors was inconsistent and unsafe. When I would bring concerns to the director of nursing, she asked her staff and they denied the accusation. Any awful experience with inadequate care on every level.

  • A great place for mom

    After visiting around 8 other communities, I ultimately chose Pacifica because of the staff. The grounds of the community are great, however the care giving staff is amazing. They went above and beyond the call of duty so many times and even did things they were not asked or required to do. They also had very little staff turnaround and as a result, the care was better and we were able to get to know them much more personally. The people here are what makes the community great. Even after my mother passed away, they are still continuing to show compassion and caring, which is greatly appreciated. When the Covid-19 pandemic came about, we noticed the cleanliness of the community drop. As one of the only allowed visitors, I noticed my mother's room was not being cleaned regularly, so I started cleaning it myself. After some of the pandemic restrictions were lifted, we noticed the cleanliness go back to normal.

  • Mother receives excellent care here

    The community is very clean, and they keep my mother very clean as well. Keep very good track of her clothes. At her past community, the staff would lose her clothes a lot, which does not happen anymore at Pacifica. My mother used to speak very good English, however, now at 99 she is no longer is able to do so. The staff has been very accommodating with this and even has Spanish speaking staff on site that have been extremely helpful. My mother has received very good care for the price. We are very happy that we have been able to keep her in a great place that is still within budget. Personal care is very good. Mother is now in hospice and to ensure her safety during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are not allowed to visit her physically. The community has done a great job of keeping us up to date on her care, even though we are unable to be with her.
