Recent reviews of Independent Living in Lafayette, CA
Carlton Senior Living Concord
5.0

The facility is very nice, close to stores, shops, parks & movie theatre. Lots of good restaurants near by. However, food is provided here, sometimes people like to go out to a restaurant. They have a lot of activities to do, a nice variety.

The Ivy at Golden Gate in San Francisco, CA
4.2

Most staff are very friendly, with occasional lapses in service (too busy to help dress; slow, slow kitchen sometimes); coordination of offsite pharmacy and medicine technicians could be better; like in any health care setting, patient advocacy (usually a family member) is essential (especially during the initial period) to insuring that the care is appropriate, complete and timely. Supervisory staff & management are very responsive.

Fremont Hills
5.0

They do well in communication if an issue(s) arises with my loved one. COVID communications as well has been very good on a weekly basis, sometimes within a week. They did well to give us a tour of their place, and answer any questions. They had good incentives for moving in at the time which helped to afford the cost of living there. They provide transportation to local Doctor's appointments. Also, the facility is super clean, and the activities for interaction was great for my loved one.
