Rio Las Palmas was assisted living in that meals were provided, and then they had another level of care they can move up, like nursing care. It was a nice facility. It was well kept, and it looked nice inside. The staff seemed very nice. The rooms were adequate. They had one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. I ate there once, and the food was fine. They also have a van that would take them shopping.

Rio Las Palmas was very nice. They were active. They had a lot of different programs. It was a much bigger place though.

My mother lives in this facility. We were nervous about her making this move. But we made a very good choice. The staff go beyond expectations. My mother fell and went into the hospital , I was out of town. When it came time to release her I was worried of how to get her back to RLP. Vickie was visiting family in the hospital and offered to take her back home. I was so relieved. She is in very good hands and I'm never worried about her. I don't live in Stockton so having my mind at ease is very important. Please if you're considering a place to live for someone you love this is a wonderful choice.

Rio Las Palmas is actually very nice, and the people living there looked very happy. The staff is very helpful. The place is clean, and I see several activities too.

My mom lived at Rio Las Palmas for almost two years. At first she was on the independent living side. She loved her one bedroom apartment, with a balcony overlooking the back courtyard. She enjoyed going to the restaurant for her meals. The food was delicious and she liked having dining companions. Rio offers many activities and and daily outings. Some she would participate in and others she wouldn't. She liked having the choices. Mom liked to play bingo, working in the Library, and attending the weekly Bible study. One of the residents would play the piano in the afternoon. She loved the music. A few months ago she became ill and we had to move her to the assisted living side. We started her out at level one care, and as her illness progressed, we stepped up her care. The staff at Rio was/ is wonderful! They were very caring and gave my mom the best of care. They were always available and did their best to meet her daily needs. They treated her as if she was a member of their family. All of the nurses and the rest of the caregivers treated her with respect and really seemed to care. With their exceptional care, they made things easier for me, especially on the few days I wasn't able to see mom. The day mom passed away, most of the staff came by to see her. I am thankful that we chose Rio Las Palmas. I would highly recommend Rio to anyone seeking a beautiful and caring community for their loved one.

I was very familiar with Rio Las Palmas because I had my grandmother in that place. The staff was OK. They didn't seem too friendly, though. The food was more restrictive. The daily menu had few choices, and they only had certain hours that they were open. Regarding activities, they were probably comparable with any other facility. My grandmother chose not to do any of their activities because she was in her 90s, so she didn't do much. They had bingo, movie nights, and side trips that they could take on a bus. My grandmother had a one-bedroom apartment with a balcony. It was a very lovely apartment. The thing about this community is her apartment. It was a nice apartment. Overall, I would recommend Rio Las Palmas, but I wouldn't recommend them the most. At that time, I think my grandmother was happy there. She made friends. When I visited, she didn't have many complaints.

Part of it is location to us. My mother-in-law is within 15 minutes of our house. They seem to understand her diet requirements. She cannot eat wheat. They feed her fresh food, and they accommodate her diet wonderfully. She loves the food. That was one of the main things that we were looking for, that someone would accommodate her needs there, and she's delighted. The rooms seemed very nice. We've been able to decorate them very nicely, and she seems to be very happy at Rio Las Palmas. The sanitation is very nice. I'm very critical in that area. We've had some issues with the housekeeping staff. They have a little pond area. It has a nice atrium lobby, and they have a nice restaurant where she can go in there and order off a menu.

The atmosphere is much better at Rio Las Palmas. The apartments are all small but these are not quite as small as some of the others I've seen that was more money even. I've seen their studios and I've seen the small and the large 1-bedrooms. The large 1-bedroom would be what I was interested in. The rooms are really spacious and they are very updated. So far, all the staff I've met has been very, very nice. I liked their grounds and their hospitality. I've had a couple of meals there and their food is very good. They have a library, they have a room for movies and they seem to have quite a few activities. I've been invited to two or three in the afternoons and early evenings. I play Blanko with the Widow's Club. That's what got me started looking over there.

My father is currently settled at Rios Las Palmas. He is in the assisted living wing and seems that he is adjusting well. They actually have enhanced assisted living and they help adjust to what his needs are. This is really a plus. The community is beautiful. The staff is absolutely wonderful – very detailed, caring and attentive. They welcomed dad like they're part of the family. They escorted him to the facility until he familiarized himself there. They have constant activity. Their monthly newsletter contains a full calendar. On each date shows a list of activities, the time it will start and where it will be. They have exercise classes, arts and crafts, cooking demonstrations, bingos and casino. Most of the basic things they have are movie theater, pool room, library, a beautiful dining room and an outside courtyard off the dining area. The only thing I would like to see is a program that specifically focuses on cognitive skill deficiency but I understand why they don’t have this because they are not a memory care facility.

Some of the reviews on this site could very well be true but in my opinion from listening to my "loved one". The food is really a problem. So If you are considering leaving your "loved one" here, ask to eat here for a few days (not prearranged). They do NOT have a "restaurant"! It is a cafeteria. Speak to the residents. Ask lots of questions! Ask the director if he/her shares or acts on the suggestions from the suggestion box. If your satified with the answers, good for you otherwise expect to stock up your "loved one" apartment with extra food!

What a lovely place to call home! Beautiful decor, attentive & caring staff, vast variety of activities...I could go on and on. My friend's grandmother loves it here, and I don't blame her. She has adjusted well and is proud to show off her new home to all. Keep up the good work!

I have known at least 3-4 residents of Rio Las Palmas, and they all say how much they love living there. I have also visited Rio Las Palmas more than once, and have always been extremely impressed with their staff, the beautiful decor, as well as the food served in their restaurant. They have so many activities, a salon on site, beautiful rooms for the residents to lounge in and everything is decorated so beautifully. This seems like a wonderful place to live, and I hope that my mother or mother-in-law will get to enjoy such luxurious retirement living!!!!

When it comes to Rios Las Palmas Assisted and Retirement Community, I happened to visit here one* day when I was with a family friend and we happened to be looking for a new place that she would be calling home. During this day we happened to make several stops to different locations to see where she would be calling home. Once we were there we happened to learn many things right away, and one of those things was that they happen to have a rehabilitation facility on-cite so if anything were to happen, she wouldn't have to be sent away to somewhere else. That piece of information was very comforting due to the fact that it can be hard to place people when rehab is needed. The community itself was very well furnished. It had that feeling of being like in a hotel versus being in a community. The people there were all very friendly, and they seemed very eager to help us get around.
