They are very helpful and caring. They offer a studio, 1bd, 2bd. Nice but very small closets, only independent living has kitchenettes. They are in process of remodeling them. Housekeeping, laundry and trash pick up weekly.

Run
We were warned that Pacifica was a "place to go if you want to die" and it felt that way in person. Chainlink fence around the smallest outdoor space made it feel like a bad prison. Poor lighting, small, sad, cold feeling rooms, residents looked miserable, underqualified staff. Run is all I can say.

Tour experience
We visited Pacifica Santa Fe and our staff representative was very accommodating, friendly, and provided a good tour. We visited with nurse who was very helpful. Lunch was delicious and generous. The building was older than other places we visited. The tour was very well done and we left feeling positive about the overall experience.

seeing my friend in a caring and friendly atmosphere makes us feel good
Pacifica Senior Living has been a good experience so far, our friend there is receiving good care. He really likes the meals and the dining service is great. He always really enjoys all the activities being offered. Pacifica has a really nice social atmosphere - he had made some clothes friends with a few staff members and other residents. The staff are relatively responsive to his needs and we would recommend. The value is terrific.

Friendly staff
The staff is very personable, friendly and respectful. However they are a bit short staffed and don't tend to him as often as they should. Our uncle evacuated his home due to wildfires and needed a place right away and this facility offered him a furnished apartment at no extra cost. Our uncle is a retired professor of languages and has enjoyed the company of some of the other residents who share similar experience and interests. Activities are minimal and are not effectively communicated in time. They post activities on the board and on a flyer but our uncle is losing his eyesight and cannot read well. It would be helpful for staff to notify him of next day activities when they take him to his meals and ask if he wants to sign up. It would be helpful to have a better program to welcome and introduce new residents.

My loved one was very difficult, to the point that I could not keep him at home anymore. The staff at Pacifica were well equipped to handle those types of challenges and knew what to do. They were efficient. And the facility was very nice and well-maintained. I would recommend it to others.

Tour experience
I was not at all impressed with Pacifica Santa Fe. The environment is dark and depressing and felt like a nursing home. When we walked around I saw a screen was off one of the windows and it worried me that a resident could climb out. When I asked how long it would take to be fixed they could not answer me. I had a family member who toured this facility and they charged her card a large amount to hold a room and it took her forever to get that back.

Our Experience
It seems mostly for independent living. The nursing care is inadequate. The staff will help with walking assistance, things like that. They are understaffed. The staff they do have is stretched thin. They provide a calendar of activities but it doesn't have a lot on it. My staff is friendly and willing to help. My loved one likes her room.

Not the shiniest nickle in the bunch and it is an older facility, but the staff do a great job and everyone is so nice
Our loved one thinks everything with the meals and dining service is great, her and the other residents are always so excited to get fresh products and fresh produce. She is flourishing there, just thriving. Before we had a home health care and there was nothing stimulating her, but now she is joining others in the TV room and anytime they plan a day trip she is always ready to go. Our only complaint which is what other communities are going through, would be the staffing shortage.

Due to the covid restrictions we have not been able to go into our loved ones room so its hard to see if her phone is plugged in or mail is getting opened. However, we do get to do window visits and the grounds are very clean. We really like the people there the staff members are wonderful. The director is great, and the guy who answers the phone is always so sharp looking and professional. We have not met a staff member yet who has not been nice.

We chose Pacifica Senior Living Santa Fe at the time because we were on a very tight schedule and they had availability when we needed it. We did take a tour and it seemed like it would be a good fit. From what we saw, the room sizes seemed to be adequate compared to other places. It is hard to evaluate since we haven't been able to visit, but I think they are doing the best that they can.

Review of Pacifica Senior Living Santa Fe
My mom moved into Pacifica Senior Living Santa Fe. Everybody there is amazingly great. It is surprising. From the people that do the laundry, to the maintenance people, the administrative people and the people in the kitchen, every person that I met there was fantastic. They know all the residents by name, and they always stop and chat with everyone. I can't say enough good things about this community. My mom is extremely happy.

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.
