Amazing Special People

This is my first introduction to a memory care facility (not a perfect world). The amount of responsibility that goes into this type of work is unbelievably challenging most of the time. I have the utmost respect for all that are a part of Pacifica S.B. You are amazing, special people. I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for all that in a day or night depending on shift. You are compassionate, caring, humorous, loving, patient people. I love you all! Thank you!

So grateful he's in good hands

He's in excellent hands at Pacifica. I can't say enough about their professionalism and compassion. I'm so grateful for finding the best place for him on such short notice. We didn't expect this to happen so early in his journey but I'm so grateful that he's safe and in good hands.

Nice place for seniors

This place is great! It's small and they treat my loved one like a queen. She can be picky at times but the staff always respond kindly. The atmosphere here is very comfortable. My favorite part is that it doesn't feel like a nursing home, it feels like home but with so much more to do and so many more helpers. Thank you for supporting our family in this difficult decision.

I thought it was depressing. I couldn’t get out of there quick enough when I came to tour. I would never recommend it. The cost was a little bit less though.
