Response from Redwood TerraceNovember 17, 2019
Thank you for sharing a few of the things you like most about our community!
Greetings! I just spent a couple days with my parents who both reside in the Gannon House. I gave 5 stars on all the categories for the facility and staff because they really are 5 star staff who work in a 5 star facility! The facility was immaculate. The staff treated residents with a real sense of friendliness demonstrating the fact that they value my parents. The staff goes out of their way to care for and bless residents. And I loved all the activities that are provided. Thank you Gannon House staff! You help me rest in the fact that my parents are superbly taken care of! Blessings to you all, [name removed]
Kay was relaxed and friendly. After it was established that we were just gathering info on Redwood Terrace and in no hurry to find a place, there was no pressure at all and she was very through, unrushed, and flexible in meeting us. Both my mom and I would pleased with our time with Kay.
We toured this facility, and saw some of the activity areas, apartments, a cottage, the dining room and administrative area/library. The cottage was roomy and the apartment was adequate, with plenty of storage space. It had limited dining space, but everything was updated and really very nice. Washer and dryer in the residence. It was between meals so we did not have an opportunity to try the food. We did not see a lot of activity going on, but the resident we spoke with in the cottage said she's been living here for 10 - 15 years and loves it; would not want to live anywhere else. We did not see the assisted living area or the skilled nursing area, but they get good marks at Medicare.gov. I would want another tour, specifically in those areas.
Our absolute favorite out of 13 we visited on our trip; as close to perfect as I could hope. The history of the company and its non-profit business model visibly benefit the residents. It was not the most luxurious community we saw - still very impressive - but I think it's the best for the money. The location is quiet but not secluded; easy access to town with low traffic. The entry fee model is a caveat - different from any other community - but the end-of-life assistance plan is extremely attractive for peace of mind, especially with one parent already headed towards advanced dementia. The $1500 wait list fee is guaranteed refundable in writing, so we are jumping on board.
My wife and I came with a friend who is interested and everything was so nice we became interested as well. We have looked at others and Redwood definitely stands out in all categories. Kay Keith is extremely helpful and knowlegeable on all the details. Monthly fees seem a bit high and we wished there was a lap pool, otherwise Redwood is tops!
You and all of your staff are amazing. Your help, patience, and caring are beyond belief. I would like to express my thanks to the administration, the nurses, the social workers, housekeeping, the maintenance workers and security. All of you have gone beyond expectations, even helping my sister arrange outside services (caregivers, etc.).
After visiting many of the retirement communities in the San Diego area, Redwood Terrace stood out as the one place that had everything we need and want. All the levels of care are there, the food is good, the units are spacious, the grounds are lovely, and the staff are very gracious. We especially appreciated the time that Kay Keith took to show us around and answer our many questions. She made us feel right at home. We can't wait to move in!
Life is a One-Way Street! Straight ahead all the way from conception to receptical, make the most of it for others and yourself - my philosophy! The last stage is currently mine, carrying a philosophy of you only go this way once--enjoy! Presently Redwood Terrace is the way I am traveling. Why you ask? you moved away from friends, relatives and your home of 20 years. Simple: I like people, sharing their experiences and knowledge. This home offers me companionship when needed, and activities that improve my mind and body. More importantly, a loving, trained and congenial staff, ready and willing to help and care for my needs when necessary. During my 6 years residency, the community allowed me to utilize my life experiences and training by helping to make new residents feel welcome by serving on the hospitality committee, offering suggestions for plant maintenance, supporting and enjoying outside adventures that I would not utlize alone. I am glad that I did not miss this, by staying alone in my home or joining and inconveniencing my family. We each need to live doing our thing then get together with others and enjoy them. The other side of this coin is giving something: helping to plan for low maintence green areas, operating a Book Cart to entertain those in the Health Care Center and holiday gifts which were received with hearty laughs and smiles. Volunteering is a Two-Way Street - straight ahead!
Clean, attractive units with attention to details by housekeepers and staff. The grounds are very well maintained and landscaped. Safety is maintained and monitored daily. Food is prepared and served by professional staff. All employees are very friendly and helpful. On site housing includes Independent and Assisted Living, as well as Memory Care. We have onsite services including a skilled nursing unit , and access to physical therapy including a therapy pool. A wide variety of activities are available: Bingo, Friday Fun Night, and bus outings to local points of interest and restaurants. An outstanding library is enjoyed by all. Overall, a very good value for all Redwood Terrace has to offer.
