Mom at Sequoia Springs
Sherry Hawks - Loved one of resident/client
My mother moved into Sequoia Springs two and a half years ago and has always felt at home. Every resident attendant has been wonderful to her and helpful. Some way past their expected duties! The med techs have been exceptional with caring for my mother during some of her more difficult times. They care so much. The serving staff is friendly, although sometimes short handed. The front desk personnel and director and assistant director are available and very kind to mom.
Of course we miss getting together with everyone with this Covid mess going on but they try to assist in any way possible to see our loved ones. This group of people are the best right down to the maintenance man/ bus driver/ coffee server! Love him.
It’s a wonderful place to spend your life. Very accommodating. Rooms are beautiful, nice views. So glad she is here.
Sequoia's close knit environment was great!

My mother only was here a relatively short time but Sequoia Springs worked very hard to make her stay here comfortable and welcoming. From introducing her to other residents, to helping with a hospital release, and making her comfortable in her final days, they were part of her advocacy team. We had another parent in another well-known larger facility and Sequoia's individualized approach was a big plus. There's a lot to be said for smaller facility where everyone knows everyone, residents and staff alike. I highly recommend Sequoia.
Very happy with Sequoia Springs!
I have a relative living at Sequoia Springs in the assisted living facility. The staff are very friendly. They are concerned about the comfort and health, both physically and mentally, of the residents. I know, without a doubt, my relative is in good hands at Sequoia Springs in Fortuna, CA.

My mother and father moved into Sequoia Springs the summer of 2016. My father passed away in January 2017, and my mom continues to live there today. She is happy, content, and feels very secure in her living environment. Though she sometimes complains about the meals, this would happen wherever she was living. I live just down the street and was able to visit her 3 or 4 times a week until this March, when the facility locked down because of COVID. It has been such a relief that they have taken such great care of everyone during this health crisis. The facility offers many activities, though my mother doesn’t often join in. She is content, happy and well looked after.
The Right Place for Mom
anonymous - Resident/client
Sequoia Springs is a perfect place for Mom. Right from the first contact, folks have been caring, attentive, professional and polite. Having piece of mind that Mom remains independent in her own cottage, and also well cared for, is exactly what we were looking for. Her living situation is the best of both worlds. I am confident that if a need arises, staff will be there to support her.
Mom's independence is paramount. I am grateful that Sequoia Springs offers the opportunity for Mom to remain as independent as possible, and supported as necessary. I could not ask for a better living situation for her.
So grateful for the amazing care

My mom has lived in Sequoia Springs for over a year. The transition from her home of 57 years to a whole new town and a new living situation was really hard for her. She suffers from cognitive impairment, so it was even more distressing and confusing for her. From the moment she moved in, every staff member took her under their wings. They are compassionate, caring people. I was allowed to spend several night there with her, in order to help her feel safe. The staff invited her to functions, and introduced her to ladies that she now calls her friends. Everyone there knows her name and treat her with kindness and respect. As her cognition continues to change, they help me understand what's going on and help me plan for future changes. Now that we are living through this virus nightmare and we are unable to enter the facility to visit, the staff have made all kinds of arrangements so that I can still safely see my mom without endangering anyone. They are so kind and loving and they regularly monitor her health and well being. I know my mom is very safe there, and I truly do not worry at all. Regarding pricing; I had checked into other facilities and Sequoia Springs is well within a reasonable price. In fact, the cost is below that of facilities in larger cities. There are no surprise fees. The facility is very clean and nice and they have exercise classes, interesting speakers and activities, and even a happy hour. I personally could not be happier with the decision to move my mom here. Although she would rather be at her own home, she recognizes that she is safer here, and she has adjusted. I am truly grateful.

Because of the staff, from management to care givers my mother's passing was beautiful and peaceful.
They walked me through the process and were so respectful of my mother and the family that they became family.
They are so kind, so caring and so loving. It brought me to tears to see how they took care of her. Always talking to her and telling her what they were going to do even though nobody really knows if they can hear...well let me tell you ...they can hear to the end.
Thank you so much for letting my mom "come home under hospice". You are all a blessing and i will never forget, no matter where my life takes me you will always be a part of her passing.
Warm, friendly, and sunny anonymous - Loved one of resident/client
I have been extremely pleased with this facility thus far. It’s very warm and sunny here. The staff has been wonderful in accommodating us and they are just so friendly. The community has a lot of activities like going to see plays, bingo, cocktail hours, and exercise classes. The facility is very reasonable in price and it just looks nice here. It’s warm and decorated well throughout the seasons. It’s not clustered here and there is no odor like you would expect from an assisted living facility. I would recommend this community to other families.
Doing Very Well anonymous - Loved one of resident/client
I am out of state but every time I talk to my brother he is telling me how much he likes it there. He is able to interact with the other residents and do the activities which make me very happy. He says he is liking the food which is good. The staff has been wonderful they are kind and keep me informed as they have a concern.

They have nice activities and the community is very clean and maintained. We would recommend this community for good care and a nice value for other families.
Excellent Facility!! anonymous - Loved one of resident/client
My dad seems to be very happy and comfortable in his new living environment. This is truly an excellent facility with lots of great amenities available to all of the residents. He has a lot of privacy with his apartment, there is a personal bathroom for him as well as a television which he really likes. The only complaint he seems to have is they do not have very much variety with there food selection. My dad says they serve a lot of fish and he is not the biggest fan of that. Other than that its been a pleasant experience so far.

I thought the rooms were descent sized, I liked that only the roommate shares the bathroom. The staff was friendly. The outdoor space was great.

I came here because I needed to be closer to my son, and needed a good place for my husband. He is happier here than Merrell Gardens where we lived before. Just my personal preference, but I do wish they had more vegetables with their meals.
