Our tour experience at Senior Star at Villa Ventura was okay. They just weren't quite as friendly and didn't have the same kind of vibe that we got from the place we ended up choosing.
We chose Senior Star at Villa Ventura because my mom liked the size of the community, some we looked at were too large. There are less than 200 here. It also has a walking trail and is not in a busy congested area, it is very quiet and backs up to a golf course. She is satisfied with her apartment size and is perfectly comfortable. I would recommend to others looking.

Thank you for your 5-star recommendation!
I would completely throw out the current manner in which this corporate owned facility is run. I would lower the prices, I would make the cafeteria like a restaurant and instead of specific meal times and little choice I would allow people to decide when and what they wanted to eat. I would start treating the people that live here like adults instead of like people who are just warehoused und soon to die. I would organize a chorus that sang a variety of rock tunes. I would set up a singles day and encourage people to mingle not stay in their apartments, I would set up a gym with actual weights and exercise classes not the garbage they offer. I would change the heating and cooling modes to actually being adjustable in each unit. Mostly I would treat the residents as being in a community inspiring physical, spiritual Renaissance not in a preparation for death. Stimulation not depression

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your time and thoughts on how you would improve things. While we wholeheartedly disagree with the characterization that Villa Ventura is a place to die, we do invite you to contact the Corporate Office HR team at [removed] to share more about your experience. We’d like to hear from you.
This is the worst place I have ever lived. The food they serve is horrible. I am unable to eat it. They shut off the air and the apartment is much too hot. I will not pay full rent and am being asked to leave which is a relief/

So far I'm very satisfied with Villa Ventura!!! I'm extremely pleased with [name removed] who set the expectation for the facility!!! She went over and beyond to accommodate getting my mom situated with limited notice. Most of the Interim Home Health staff are great as well. I'm grateful that the facility took appropriate action to keep the residences safe during this pandemic!!! I would recommend Villa Ventura!!!

[Name removed] gave me a second visit on the 15th. She is so helpful-aided me in understanding the benefits of my long-term care policy. Unfortunately,they do not have a memory care program. A great place for assisted living though.

Thank you for your review Judith! We are so happy that you enjoyed both the food and your interaction with our staff. We are so honored that you would consider making your home at Villa Ventura in the future.
I visited Villa Ventura for an "Aging Well" seminar. They showed a group of us many benefits of living there without making a sales presentation. Meeting 9 staff members they all seemed happy with their jobs and their clients. I enjoyed the "laugh yoga" and the "gold zumba" activities.

Thank you for your review! We are so happy that you enjoyed the seminar you attended and that you were able to see and experience two of the many meaningful activities that are a daily part of life at Villa Ventura!
While looking into various options for my mother we toured this property. The people there are lovely. They had a buffet type lunch, but I would think that it might be difficult for seniors getting their own plates and stuff. However, the food was good and the staffs are great. What we didn’t like so much is how the other residents’ behavior. They seemed to be always starring, never talking, and never waving. They didn’t really tell us if they themselves liked living there. What my mother and I look for is for more socialization between the people living there.
Response from Senior Star at Villa VenturaDecember 5, 2017
Thank you so much for your review! We are glad you enjoyed the food and staff in our dining room. Our buffet lunches are only served two days per week and our servers are always available to take orders or assist with residents at the buffet. Our hope is that the buffet allows those who enjoy this style of dining to have the option. We are firm believers in socialization at Villa Ventura. Our program director keeps a full calendar of events for each level of care. Many residents have found friendship and comradery through these activities and dining together. To the extent that you did not experience that, we’d welcome you and your mother to join us for an upcoming activity of your choice.
I recently visited Villa Ventura and was very impressed with the staff, food and atmosphere. Would recommend them to anyone!!!
What a fabulous group to work with! I have been very pleased with the care my loved one has received. He is happy, clean, cared for and stimulated with relevant activities and outings. The food is always a topic with him as well. He and my father in law eat there a lot and there is NEVER ever a complaint! I hear about that constantly! Thank you Villa Ventura family for taking such great care of my loved one and my father in law that is really just a visitor but eats your food too. :)
The service is excellent and I love the activities.
We have toured, as well as visited Villa Ventura on numerous occasions, usually for special events. We have always been warmly welcomed, experienced a well organized and enoyable activity with festive decorations and delicious party themed food! The residents we have visited with at these events express pleasure with their living environment and seem to have fun at the events as well as with all the employees!
My mother has lived at Villa Ventura for almost two years. I can't say enough about how caring and friendly the staff is. The fare in the dining room is very good and has a lot of variation. Activities, including performers, bingo and happy hour, keep her engaged with other residents. It feels like a real home when I arrive in the evening and find some residents playing cards, others in the pub watching a game and another playing the piano.
I scheduled a tour with [Removed]. Upon arrival, she was waiting to greet me at the front and had even set up a nice welcome message set up for me. She gave me a detailed tour of the community and answered any questions I had. She introduced me to several staff, including the Executive Director. All of the staff was friendly and polite. The community looked very clean and beautiful. The residents were engaged in several different activities and everyone appeared to be in a great mood. Julie offered me a refreshment on the tour which was wonderful. She gave me an information packet and discussed the different services their community offers. [Removed] really went above and beyond to make sure I had a wonderful experience visiting Villa Ventura. Great job!
The staff here are so kind and so helpful. There are lots of different activities to engage in and lots of ways for the community to come together. The upkeep around the place is also excellent. They are constantly refreshing carpets, paint, exterior landscaping etc. We are very happy to have our dad living there.
My father has lived there for 17 months. We could not be happier with the staff, food, friendliness, activities, and overall care for the residents. We are so happy to have chosen Villa Ventura Senior Star for my father to live. [Removed]
