  • Move from Brookdate to Ventura Hills has been mixed

    My mom has been here for several months and since the change from Brookdale to Ventura Hills there have some aspects that have thankfully remained the same and some that have changed. The wonderful chef and kitchen staff have maintained the same high quality of food which is so helpful in keeping my mom eating well and enjoying her meals. They are all so accommodating, know the residents likes and dislikes, and dietary restrictions - such a blessing! Activities have remained the same and they are adequate for most residents. Medical staff (the assisted part of assisted-living) though seems to have been reduced. We've had to push to get all the assistance we are paying for. They need to hire at least one more person or two per shift as there have been times when I could not locate ANYONE to get the help that was needed.

  • Happy and helpful residents

    I toured here when looking for a place for my sister. It was very, very nice. I liked it but my sister didn’t seem to. I liked the grounds a lot and some of the residents were outside while we were touring. It seemed very safe and very accommodating. The facility was very clean and there weren’t any smells, which is normally the first thing I try to pay attention to. The residents all seemed happy and helpful and everything I saw was beautiful. It was a nice place all around but we ultimately went with a different community.

  • Great Price, Chef, and Staff Attention

    This community has been a good fit for my mom. She is really adapting and everyone has been very friendly and helpful. I picked this community because the price was in our ball park and more great reasons. I had a chance to talk with the residents and they liked the place and they felt they got the attention they needed from staff. The chef is great. She gives an amazing menu daily with great variety to pick from. I also like how the assistant activities director always invites my mom to activities that are happening and my mom loves some specific games.
