Reviews of Alta Vista Gardens

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My brother is at Alta Vista Gardens Res-Elderly. He's a veteran. I don't like the place. Choices were limited because of the amount of money he receives. It's a locked-door facility, meaning he can't get out and wander around. He has memory issues because of blows to the head. They didn't offer to show us around. That idea wasn't introduced. I had to find things out for myself. I wanted to see the menu, which was more like a piece of paper. Snacks are available all day. Some of the people are allowed to go out and come in. The paperwork I needed to sign was explained to me. They told me how things work, when payments are due, and who submits the medication. A nurse from the VA visits him once a month. It's in a very nice neighborhood. The facility is clean. Maybe the furniture could be a little more comforting. There's also a language barrier. Today, I sent a note telling them that I'd be out of town and whom to contact in case of an emergency. Then, I sent another note to tell them that he'd be receiving something from the VA. When I called, I tried to explain this to them, but they didn't seem to know what I was talking about. Notes were posted the last time I was there saying that I would be picking him up. I called to remind them that I needed him to be dressed and ready to go by 11 a.m. They don't offer a service to take him for me in case I can't do it. I have to provide that help.
