Care for dad

reviewed on: 04/05/2017 by Anonymous

My opinion

reviewed on: 08/13/2021 by anonymous

Some of the meals that they serve are hard for residents to chew in memory care. When I go over there the gal at the front desk is not very approachable, she can be cold and rude and she is the first person you see when you come into the building. When I try to get in on weekends sometimes I have to wait 30 minutes to get someone to let you in. Overall I would still recommend.

The right decision

reviewed on: 07/02/2015 by Happy in Pleasant Hill

My mother was so against moving out of her home of 66 years. She was depressed and very negative about everything. I have seen such an improvement in her attitude since she moved into an independent living apartment a month ago. I was afraid that she would just sit in her room and pout, but she has really joined in the activities and seems to be much happier than I have seen her in years. She says everyone there is so friendly and all the residents help each other out whenever they can. I am convinced we definitely made the right decision.

I Live Wonderfully

I like that I get to meet a lot of people with different backgrounds and interests. The main selling point was when I had a tour with them, they made feel like a person and treated me well. They have been very helpful and if I got to the front desk someone is there to help me too. My apartment comes with a den and plenty of closet space. It is cleaned weekly and they do a nice job. Currently they are finishing new flooring through out the community. The meals and activities have been great.

Unique approach for residents!

reviewed on: 09/08/2016 by Anonymous

The community at The Shores at Pleasant Hill is very intriguing. The staff did a wonderful job explaining the benefits of the community and their interesting approach to senior living. When a resident moves into a unit in independent living they get to stay in that unit even if level of care changes. If they need assisted living then they stay in their unit and more care is provided as needed. This really helps the residents from having to move and settle in more than once. The community does seem to look like a hospital setting and a little sterile but its for the transitioning approach that they take with the residents.
