Reviews of Lytton Gardens Assisted Living
Average Rating: based on 3 Reviews
I visited this facility
The staff, amenities, and facilities were great. It was split up into 3 sections: assisted living, retired living, and hospital environment living. All were great. The retired living were a bit small, but it was nice to see that the citizens had friends to be with. Overall, I would probably be willing to live there after retirement.

Lytton Gardens has a whole spectrum of assisted living facilities, from independent living (where my grandfather started) to hospital-grade care (where my grandfather ended). In the independent living area, residents have a choice of apartments, ranging from studios to two bedrooms. There are plenty of activities, a well-stocked library with daily newspapers, a small gym, and several well-tended interior gardens with a variety of flowers, fountains, and seating. As medical needs increase, the community has different facilities to accommodate those needs. In addition, Lytton Gardens has a close relationship with Stanford Hospital down the street. Location is superb: right in a safe walking neighborhood full of high-end restaurants and shops, although it is overtaken by the local Stanford Univ students frequently. Attendants are for the most part courteous and competent but not entirely warm. The food is not great. The rates are quite expensive compared to other facilities of similar quality, if not location.
I visited this facility
I visited Lytton Garden around the Holidays in 2011 and was thoroughly impressed by this community. It's both an assisted living facility and has a wing of Independent Living residents on the opposite side of the premise.
On the memory floor residents were engaged in a musical performance by another member of the facility and had an opportunity to sit together and enjoy the holiday performance. Other members of the community had personalized care as they ate their meals on the cafetaria just the few doors down.
Patients on the rehab floor also had personalized care from nurses along with a few doctors as they did their daily exercises. There were even a few multi-lingual nurses for non-english speaking residents.
I was especially touched by the festive spirit of the facility, as there were several decorated trees throughout the premise after their annual tree decorating contest. I'm happy to know there are senior care providers as engaging as Lytton Gardens and hope to have a facility like this nearby if I'm ever faced with putting my loved one in assisted living.
