This place is an excellent facility that specializes in the care of Chinese speaking people. It is well maintained and the staff is always ready to help. My mom lived there until she passed .

Ivy Park at San Jose
4.9

We have been very happy with Ivy Park. We were leery at first and looked at many places. They really worked with us and made us feel more comfortable. She is in the early stages of dementia and after they assessed her, they felt that she was not ready for memory care. They gave us a perfect room in the very front for her. For what we were paying based on other places we think it is a really good value especially for the quality of care she gets. From the moment we walked in, all of the residents and the staff have been really welcoming. My mother is absolutely thriving here. She is able to be social and make lots of friends and doing activities. We think this was the perfect fit for her and it is a fantastic facility.

Atria Willow Glen in San Jose, CA
3.6

I would tell others location, location, location. Move in, however, select your apartment very carefully. The inside of the apartments are all the same; however the outside will vary by view and the size of the patio. If you like the outdoors, select the apartment carefully, and your view. There aren't a lot of activities that are on the younger side of life. The activities don't have a lot of variety and this may change after the pandemic. The food is very good and very monotonous . Lots of fresh fruits and veggies, low salt and sugar. There are a lot of residents that complain about the food. It would be nice to have variety of the food and this would help the residents with the food. The grounds are beautiful. They have a koi pond. There are mature rose bushes, trees, and the gardening is well attended to. It is a pleasant place to wonder around. If you like a beautiful garden this is the place to come. If you want to grow your own garden, there is one on site. On the downside about half the people in independent living have either full time care takers, or have some type of memory care concerns. I would have expected it to be a different level of independent living here. My review is based on my less than 6 months experience.
