Silvergate Retirement Residence - San Marcos
4.1

So far we've been very happy with Silvergate. The staff is very nice and accommodating. I like the level of communication they give us, and they always respond to any questions we have. The care of our loved one has been going well. They do well with activities overall. I would just like to see more variation in activities for higher functioning residents in memory care.

We chose Aegis at Shadowridge because they were the most helpful and willing to work with us in a bad situation, they really stepped up. I was not able to go in during covid so they were very good with communication and sending us updates. I would highly recommend them.
