La Posada Assisted Living & Memory Care in Whittier, CA
3.4

La Posada is quite a nice community, our loved one was on the memory care side and the staff were just fantastic. Everyone we encountered were just fabulous and very attentive to our loved one. They were so kind, and even with her being on hospice and them knowing she was not going to be there for very long, they still went out of there way to get to know here. The staff had great communication with the families. Now it is a huge challenge to have a loved one in a community during covid. Nothing works and things are not easy. Sometimes things got confusing when it came to visiting hours which brought on some frustration. The management and staff did not have the best communication at times.

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.
