I visited this facility
I couldn't believe how nice everyone was there... So sweet and genuinely helpful. Beautiful community and the activity board was packed of interesting things to do. the salad bar was wonderful and the fresh made soup was delicious. I recommend you take a look at this community in your search!

My mother-in-law resided at Chateau I for about 5 years. The facility is modern, well-maintained, beautifully landscaped and cheerful. The apartments are very nice. Whenever I visited, she seemed happy and well cared for by a pleasant staff. Judging from the notices on the bulletin boards, there are many activities for the residents to participate in. The dining room is nice; I ate there several times and thought the food was pretty good. Once they were even able to accommodate a group of her kids and grandkids in a separate room for dinner for a birthday celebration. The only concerns we had were that sometimes mom stayed in her room too much and didn't socialize with others, and as her health declined we would have liked more help from staff getting her to take her medications, making sure she didn't skip meals, and with hygiene. But overall, a place I would highly recommend.
I've had two clients there, and both left. It has a country club atmosphere. It's a more formal retirement community, a little snootier that fits some people well, others not so well.
The facility is tall but fits on a small footprint. It's in a mixed commercial and residential neighborhood near the Martinez border. It's a nice neighborhood, well kept up. The rooms are nice, too, if a little on the small side. I recall that they're all private rooms.
The staff is very caring and professional. My only real issue has been with their management of medications. They made a mistake with one of my client's medications that was very serious.
But the ownership/management is excellent. The food is excellent. And the activities are good: games, crafts, music, happy hour every day, holiday celebrations.
The people who do best here tend to be high functioning and pretty independent. It's not for someone with dementia or other high needs.
