The meals and dining service has been excellent, and they have really great activities for us to participate in. Based on my experience so far I would recommend the White Sands community to others.

Great facility
I can recommend White Sands La Jolla and Care Choice Health Systems in addition to [removed]. I wholeheartedly recommend all of them. We've never had any problems, and my parents are now staying at [removed]. We are blessed to have them satisfy my parents' needs.

tour of White Sands
i toured this community and found the public rooms to be very beautiful, as they had an ocean view. the rooms they showed us (within their availability) were unclean and not up to par; there were broken shower rods and things of that nature.

A safe and lovely place for mom!
White Sands facility has everything from independent living to skilled nursing. They have a lot of activities to offer, it is in a really beautiful location. We could not be happier with our decision, we know our mother is safe there. The food is excellent with a wide range of choices. The rooms are very nice and adequate, they have many options to choose from. Our loved one has a beautiful view.

We have spent over a week touring (and staying at) senior living communities in San Diego County. All had their plus points and some were nicer than others, but the residents and staff at White Sands went out of their way to make us feel completely welcome. We are impressed.

A community with a view for mom
I am very happy with the care that my mom is receiving here with the great staff. This community is very clean and at this time it is going thru at this time. The food is really good and a nice variety for her. She is offered activities, but she is not settled in yet. I would recommend this community. This community is offering my mom a view of the ocean.

Finding the right community for a parent is equally important for adult children as it is for mom or dad. I certainly appreciate the weight a decision such as this carries, which makes it all the more enjoyable to receive this type of feedback. We’re thrilled you and your mother are enjoying White Sands La Jolla, and all the amenities that come with beachfront retirement! Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help her settle in. Gary Boriero Executive Director, White Sands La Jolla

The white sands in La Jolla is a fantastic property, located right on the beach and at a fair price. Depending on the size of the unit, pricing varies. We are very happy with the services. we are also very happy with your company. Without it, we would not have found this place for my dad. So, we are vert pleased and I recommend your services to others. Again, thank you for your services.

Buy-In Community With All Levels of Care
It has a different feel. Each one of these places kind of has their own feel based on the way it's laid out and set up. White Sands had long hallways and a little bit more dormy feel. The rooms were smaller her my step-mom didn't like that. The bang for the buck was a little less than another place but then, White Sands was right on the ocean. It was nice. White Sands has a different program. They will only let you in if you meet their financial criteria. It's buy in and then you're' guaranteed residency for life and they had different levels of care - Alzheimer's and nursing care and things like that.
