Pasadena Highlands

We chose Pasadena Highlands because it looked like it would be a good fit for my brother and it has turned out to be just that, he is very happy here. The staff are very friendly and were helpful with the whole move in experience. That was especially helpful for me since I live so far away. I would recommend the facility to other families looking.

Del Mar Park in Pasadena, CA

My mom and I settled on Del Mar Park more than 10 years ago (when it was Chancellor Place). [name removed], the Administrator understood my mom right away and adjusted her level of care and delivered the day-to-day support that gave her the consistency, healthcare support and quality of life that earned my trust and gratitude. The nursing and support staff are exceptional in their commitment to the health and well-being of the residents. And my mom wasn't always the easiest personality to please.
