Merrill Gardens at Santa Maria

We chose Merrill Gardens because they had available space at the time we needed it and also I could see it was very clean, it smelled good, and all of the staff who helped us were extremely friendly and helpful. We really appreciated how upfront and honest they were with us. They have different tiers of care, they have independent living, assisted living, as well as memory care. So as needs change, you are able to increase the amount of help you are getting without having to move. I would recommend to others who are looking.

Fountain Square of Lompoc

I feel the staff have taken great care of my loved one, and feel safe with my loved one being here. This would be a great place for your loved one to be. The staff are very open, accommodating and care to the family with our questions or concerns about our loved one. The food is good and it is a balanced diet for the residents. The room, laundry, linen changes, housekeeping, utilities and transportation are including in the monthly rate. Dressing assistance, memory care, medication management, and bathing assistance are some of the care types the community has to offer.

The Oaks at Nipomo

I'm very satisfied with them. The number one thing that stands out is that their memory care unit is enclosed within the facility. That's a big deal for us, so our love one isn't opening a door and hearing an alarm go off. The staff is excellent, although sometimes it's hard to get through to the general staff when I call. The facility is clean overall. My loved one says she likes the food. And it's a good deal for the money.
