A homey family-type environmentreviewed on: 11/06/2020 by Carol Cornelius
We chose Ventura Hills because they were able to provide us with the exact number we would be paying, the overall appearance of the facility (it is in a very pretty area), it is a smaller community so 1 on 1 care is better, they really treat them like family here. The room sizes here are bigger than what she came from and it is adequate for her needs. The best part about the community so far has been the location, it is very close to us and it is just such a pleasing environment. All of the residents seem very happy here and we are impressed with Ventura Hills. It is also such a safe place for my mom during COVID because I see how they do everything and I do not have to worry.
My First Choice But No Available Roomreviewed on: 11/11/2016 by Anonymous
They have a dedicate room for respite visitor, its like walking into a hotel. They have linen ready and a bedside table with lamp. It was designed for a short term care. Their respite room was on the ground floor, he community is not all on one level. They did not have courtyard for my mom. It still was my top choice because they understood respite care. We did not use them because someone was using the room already.
Very pleased with the service, Mom is happy herereviewed on: 01/23/2014 by Daughter
This is a very nice place. my Mom has a very lovely 2 room apartment and she is happy with it, and with the people. The staff are all friendly, and they're very responsive to her physical and care needs. They're very accommodating when it comes to family interactions as well! We had her birthday celebration here recently, and they were wonderful about getting the food we requested and having a space available for us to celebrate. And the food was very good! I've only had one issue with them so far, and that was that after Mom suffered a fall they did not have information on hand about which hospital she should go to. My brother was first on the contact list and they were unable to reach him, but never tried me. Eventually Mom called me and I was able to give them the info, but I felt it was something they should have had on hand in the first place.
Courteous Staff!!reviewed on: 10/24/2016 by Anonymous
My parents seem to be really liking the variety of meals that are offered at this community, there are many healthy options as well as an alternate menu for the residents to choose from if they are dissatisfied with what is being served. I do think that there could be some improvements on the staffing , they often seem very overwhelmed and short staff.
