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.

Our experience so far

We found the staff to be really friendly, the whole move in process was all nice and easy. The business staff and their website for us trying to pay bills is not very good at all. Other than that the facility itself is really nice and our loved one enjoys it here. They are in the middle of changing ownership, so there is a transition period going on at the moment.

Tour of Pacifica Senior Living

I toured this community and liked it. We chose another community because there was no secured path or garden for my loved one to take a walk. we noticed that the residents were walking around in the parking lot and that wouldn't work for us, as my mom has a walker.

I would recommend the Memory Care area to others for their loved ones. The staff is very good and address the residents by their first name. They are attentive to the resident's needs as well. There are exercise classes, memory games, crafts, and more for the residents to stay engaged with.

During our tour a resident spilled their water and needed help but the tour guide just kept going instead of helping and that just kind of rubbed me the wrong way.

Great Experience

I've been impressed by the staff's genuine level of caring about the residents beyond the specific tasks at hand. The level of effort they demonstrate for the families as well has been excellent. The response from the executive director to even minor inquiries has been outstanding. And the food is excellent as well.

MY REVIEW OF Atria Rancho Peñasquitos

My loved one was here for memory care and I would not recommend this community to others for memory care. The community is understaffed and the food is not good at all and there is no variety or options. The lobby is beautiful but the rooms in memory care are not clean as often as they are supposed to.

Thank you Atria.

My mom moved into Atria late January 2020, Just six weeks before the COVID lockdown began. She thrived during this time, attending daily exercise classes, playing lots of bingo and meeting friends in the dining room and frequent celebrations. The lockdown has been hard on everyone at Atria, including residents, employees, and family members. The staff has dedicated themselves to keeping the residents safe while keeping them engaged and entertained. [name removed] has gone above and beyond, including dressing up in costumes, serenading from the parking lot, organizing hallway activities and delivering meals to room. She has made herself completely accessible to our family and we text frequently to check on mom or ask a question. She is truly a blessing. Her caregivers [names removed] have provided excellent daily care. We are so grateful for them all. The recent easing of restrictions have been so exciting! Small group exercise classes are back as well as lunches in the dining room. Its not back to normal but they are on their way, which is so wonderful to see.

Honest appraisal of my residence at Atria Rancho Penasquitos

At 96 and wheelchair bound I have found my final residence and look ahead to a few more years of pleasant living. I lived alone for basically 15 years before falling and fracturing a hip. Assisted living was last on my list for places to be. It was the best move I ever made for the times. The entire staff from the Executive Director on down are beyond excellent! Our Chef is a genius, the caregivers and medical techs are exceptional, and every level of workers is the best I have known. I was in a deep funk when I broke my hip and had to go through six weeks of rehab. I did not want to continue in this life and my family feared for my existence. Within two weeks I settled into the routine and have been the most content and happy I have been in years! Atria Rancho Penasquitos literally saved my life for which I am forever grateful. As Patriarch of a 5 generation family in San Diego my excellent care has made all happy along with me. Life is good!

Atria RP, is the best place in the world for mom. The staff is professional, smart & very caring. We have never worried about mom’s care since day one. Everything from housekeep, meals & activities are top notch. Throughout COVID they have worked very hard with new guidelines & solutions within those difficult perimeters to keep mom healthy & safe. They have also done so while treating her with love & respect. Thanks go to [name removed], she is amazing!

Critique of an Independent Resident

On my third year at Atria. I like being here among friends than being at home alone. It's a safe, active and happy experience. Atria is taking very good care of us during the pandemic. Activities are beginning to open up and that's a good thing for us. Care Givers, MTechs, Waitstaff and the maintenance and cleaning crew continue to do a great job.

I LOVE ATRIA

I was concerned about moving Mom out of her home of 40 years, but she needed more help than I could provide after a hospital stay for a broken hip. From the first meeting with the staff to today a year later, I knew I made the best choice. The monthly rate is NOT overinflated like some places I'd seen, in fact it is the best value I've found. - and they are honest, helpful and open about everything. EVERYONE has been wonderful! Mom is happy, she's eating (a small fete in itself) and the food is delicious. With the activities (OH MY GOODNESS THE ACTIVITIES!), the exercise classes and the other residents, Mom is thriving! The cleanliness, the welcoming and super friendly staff, how they care for her and how Mom has made an amazing recovery and is SO HAPPY, has made my world a lot brighter too. I LOVE Atria, best of all - so does Mom.

The home is very clean and well maintained, a very personable size that facilitates a welcome feeling. The staff and in particular, [name removed], have been exceptionally and consistently helpful and really are an asset to the facility as well as our experience.
