This has been a great place for our mom. She enjoys her independence and the opportunities to socialize with other residents and staff. There is a very caring, loving staff here. They provide fun activities for the residents - even creative, safe ones during Covid (example: drive-by Valentines Day, etc.).

Authenticity can't be faked - it shows. I'm very impressed with Pacifica Oakland Heights. Pacifica is what it says it is. The mood in the Dementia Care facility is light and warm. In the exercise class, two of the residents are going through the steps with a smile and a sense of humor. When you walk into any room, the residents turn their faces toward you, like they expect to have a conversations. And they do. The staff is always saying, "Hi Miss [name removed]," "Hi [name removed], did you have a good walk?" Everyone's story is listened to. "Your dad is here today? Where? Over by the bench? I see him!" The residents seem genuinely emotionally healthy. I chose a good place for my Mom.

Dad has been here since Jan 2020 , just before the Covid shutdown started. This facility did everything right and not one resident contracted the virus. They were extremely careful and continue to be. I can’t say enough about the lovely community this place offers. The caregivers have been there a long time and are so sweet to everyone. There is a real sense of happiness here. The management is carrying, responsive, very professional and puts the residents needs above everything. And their cook just loves the residents so much. She is a gem!! This facility has been here as long as I can remember. Early 1960’s. My Mom lived here before she past away in 2016 and the care was great then as it is now. If you’re looking for a fancy place with chandeliers, keep looking. If you’re looking for a place that cares for your elderly parent with TLC and attention to details then look no further [name removed]

My dad seems to like it there. I think they're pretty good. They value independence of the residents, which is good. They're not too overbearing, and they allow the residents the freedom to do what they want, which may or may not be a good thing depending on your loved one's situation. But for us, it has been good. My dad gets to choose the sodium level at each of his meals, things like that. The food is just a different type of cuisine than he was expecting or prefers. I think they communicate really well. And overall it has been a pretty good experience.

My father is a difficult one but a great dad. He had a major fall a few months ago and after rehab, we found Belmont Village in Albany. I worked with [name removed] on his admission process and you couldn't have a more knowledgable and compassionate person to assist through this difficult time - especially since I live on the East coast and was not able to meet in person. Dad has been getting great care. He likes the food. He has referred to Belmont Albany as "The Mink Palace" because the amenities and the architecture is so nice.

We chose Oakmont because of the proximity to our former home that we lived in for over 50 years. It is a community that we knew and we knew people who have lived here as well. We are in the largest apartment they have which is 2 bedrooms 2 bath, it is great size. They do have other options on room sizes as well. The staff are still very attentive and they address your questions and needs. I would recommend to others looking as long as you can afford it.
