My husband would have benefited from more stimulation. He was mentally alert with all his facilities but physically totally dependent. The staff were wonderful, so kind and caring. But he was in the memory care unit because of his level of care. Sitting in front of the constant TV with severely dementia patients wasn't the answer. The unit itself was originally very dark and drab but it was receiving a makeover which could only help. There needed to be more activities, gatherings in the patio areas, music activities etc.

Our Experience
From our perspective, it's seems that information isn't always offered directly. So we had ask many questions on basic information. So it felt like once the money was paid, we were on our own except when they raise the rent. That's happened three times in a year. The memory care staff has been great. But the office staff is non existent. I'd still recommended it, but with warnings.

We read all the reviews and hope that this message finds you and your family well. You most likely know this, but just in case, we have a new executive director whose energy has already been felt within the community. He has many great ideas and could use the feedback from family whose loved-ones live in our community. Please be sure to reach out directly to Wes Hebner, Executive Director.

4.5. Awesome Home Away From Home
Pacifica, Rancho Penasquitos. They are very caring, friendly, kind people who take their jobs seriously. The facility is clean, affordable, and they offer activities throughout the day to appeal to to a wide range of interests. They typically offer three outings a week, so that residence can do some light shopping, go out to lunch, or take a scenic drive. The food is good, and the menu is flexible so that residents have choices. My dad is getting more exercise, socialization, and mental activities to keep him engaged throughout the day. We are so thankful to the staff at Pacifica for all that they do!

We found the right place for my Uncle!
My Uncle moved into Pacifica Senior Living Rancho Penasquitos straight from the hospital. There, we found a group of professionals who work seamlessly as a team. I get reports of him doing activities so I can keep up to date on his wellbeing. They contact me right away if he needs something I can bring him. All team members are always in a good mood; Its quite amazing! My Uncle has developed a group of friends for dining and feels at home. The place is clean and fun things are alway happening. He loves that the dining rooms and activities are a short distance from his apartment door. The Director, [name removed], has an open door policy and listens. Basically, I feel secure that when I'm not with my uncle, they will take good care of him. This is a great place!

Great Memory Care!
My Dad moved to their Memory Care, and the entire staff are so kind, and such a great help to my Father. The whole team at Pacifica RP are friendly, caring and very good at their job. Knowing my Dad is well taken care of gives me such a piece of mind. It is a beautiful location, modern, clean. A really pleasant place to live. Really nice front room, patios and activity rooms. The Memory care areas are just as nice as the assisted living spaces. Shout out to [names removed] for the great job they do! It has been the best choice we have made for my Father and his care.

Excellent place to live
I have lived at Pacifica Senior living Rancho Penasquitos for three plus years. This community is extremely warm and inviting. My favorite part of living here is all the friends I have made. The food here is good and consistent. The servers are excellent because they are always so tuned into each individual resident. The activities are off the chart. They honestly just keep coming and coming. It is an extremely supportive and friendly community where I have made lots of friends and continue to do activities on a daily basis. The staff here take time to truly get to know each resident on a daily basis. It feels great that everyone knows my name, my likes, and my dislikes. The community is currently going through a remodel. They are adding a fitness center and a movie theater. I am extremely excited for these new additions.

I am very fortunate to have 1 bedroom apartment on the main level. My apartment is organized the exact way I like it.

I have lived here for 3 years and it is an exceptional place to live. The customer service is top notch- if you discuss a concern with management, they are very attentive and ensure they solve it right away. The business office manager, [name removed], is amazing. She goes above and beyond to help not only myself, but other residents. The care staff are extremely helpful and observant which is exactly what you want when looking for a facility like this to place your loved one.

We understand that there are many places for you to choose when looking for a senior living community. You may be interested in knowing that our community is currently going through a full renovation in the Assisted Living and Memory Care neighborhoods.

Review for Pacifica Senior Living Rancho Penasquitos
I would say it is ok. They need more activities for the residents though. I would say it was passing ,but I would spend time comparing to other communities. It was on but probably better options out there. We picked this community, because of the location and discussion of activities that never seemed to materialize.

Now that time has passed we are hoping that you are more active in the community. I am sure that you know that there are weekly outings for residents in addition to being able to go wherever you want to go such as grocery stores, pharmacies, or to the bank, among other places. I bet that you have discovered that we will take anyone to physician appointments. Perhaps you have attended the many planned outings to casinos, museums, restaurants, and parks that are advertised monthly. If you haven’t...all you need to do is to speak up to one of your favorite staff members who would be eager to you involved.

I can promise you that this is a fantastic location! I went because I was seeking for a place for my mum. The facilities are spotless, and the personnel, particularly the Executive Director, is quite pleasant. He was really helpful and knowledgable about the amenities. We felt completely at ease and trusted the director with our mother's requirements. It was quite clean, with polite employees and a tranquil atmosphere. Both Pacifica Senior Living Rancho Penasquitos and [removed], where my other relatives live, come highly recommended.

Experience so far at Pacifica Rancho Penasquitos
It's very difficult to get ahold of anyone there via phone. And there's no way (that we know of) to reach staff via email to see if anything is needed like Depends, wipes etc. we never know. And even when we visit there's a 50/50 we'll see anyone in charge in memory care section to ask questions. Nothing really specific they could improve on with the food, I think my loved one is just a picky eater.

Frustrated - needs improvement
It's an older facility, which is fairly clean. There has been alot of changes in staff. The people that I have interacted with are friendly. They are lacking with the care services, and they don't have enough staff. Taking things forever to get done, in the quality of care that we were expecting. The cleaning people are kind, and are always smiling. The activities have been lacking, because they just got a new activities director. Overall, not happy.

Overall, this is a very good facility. Mom is in memory care. Memory care doesn't have a nurse there regularly, it seems to be just med techs. Upon returning from hospital stays, it would have been helpful for a nurse to be available for her to assist with wound care and things the med techs can't do. I knew this information already, but didn't realize it would matter so much until mom returned from the hospital and needed that extra care. Also, they keep all of the doors closed by policy, but it would be nice for mom to be able to see people passing by and would feel more at home for her. She's not able to do much, but I feel like having the door open would help her to at least be able to see other people. The facility is very clean, especially the resident rooms. The meals seem to be good. But again, overall, I would recommend them.

Mediocre but improving
I think they're getting there; meaning, when we first began enrolling the community was known as Atria and when we finished signing up it was then Pacifica. I initially asked about activities and was informed that their activities director left and they were trying to get someone else. They don't seem to be doing anything for memory care residents right now. They've been kind of grouping them together to watch TV in common areas. They've lost a lot of staff and they're trying to replace a lot of staff. The people I've met seem nice and hard working. They've been responsive as well, but still seem understaffed. I think as things transition it will get better, I'm hoping. If it wasn't for my loved one having difficulties settling in new places, I would find somewhere else more established. I don't think Pacifica is a bad place; the staff are trying and are just in a transitional period at the moment.

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.
