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.

Vista Del Mar Senior Living in Long Beach, CA
4.8

My Brother has been a resident of Vista del Mar Senior Living for nearly 3 years, and we were very happy with our choice. We had problems finding another Assisted Living facility in Culver City, and Vista del Mar was perfect. It has met all of my Brother's needs and he has been very happy there. We have since found another Assisted Living facility in Culver City, and that is the only reason my Brother is moving. The new facility will have big shoes to fill. The Staff at Vista del Mar, (especially [Name removed]) should be proud to be associated with a great Senior Living Center. Thank all of you.

  • Palliative and hospice care
  • Health care services
  • Complimentary transportation
  • 24-hour care and supervision
