Recent reviews of Nursing Homes in Bakersfield, CA
The Palms of San Lauren in Bakersfield, CA

They never have to worry about any help or anything that is needed for themselves or their loved ones. Everything was fantastic and everything and everyone was very helpful and caring.

Ivy Park at Seven Oaks in Bakersfield, CA

The atmosphere is very pleasant and cheerful. Many other places are depressing and The Villages at Seven Oaks is cheery and clean and smells good. It is a good value for the money. We have peace of mind that he is getting good care. We are bringing in hospice to give a little extra help. We are very comfortable with them. There have been a few times where they have not been as timely with returning phone calls and there have been a few frustrations but overall we are happy. I like that the memory care has it's own side. It is very easy to visit.

San Joaquin Nursing and Rehab in Bakersfield, CA

The staff at Golden Living Center was pretty responsive to the family's needs. We had family meetings about discharge planning. I did think the social service director was responsive to me personally. So many emails and phone calls to stay in contact. Their executive director and my mom had a personality conflict. It got to the point that my mom was calling her names.
