Thank you to all the staff at the villas. You are so wonderful to my aunt. She enjoys all the personalities and the attention she received.

I would like to express my appreciation for the care you take of my Uncle the care staff has gone above and beyond the call of duty. I could not have asked for more professional, and at the same time kind caregivers. You do everything in your power to protect you at all times. I commend you for hiring such quality people at the Villas at La Canada.

The Villas at La Canada was very clean and very pleasant. Everybody was affable, and they seemed engaged. The residents had a lot of freedom. None of the doors were locked. They just had buzzers on them. Each of the homes was set up the same, and they had a multipurpose room in the center. I thought the physical setup was really nice. It allowed interaction. They need more staff on site especially for the Alzheimer's unit.

Thank you again, I hope to see you around the community in the future. As for our Alzheimer’s unit I think you would be pleased with the development of those Villas and the additional support and staff that are now in place to take care of our resident’s needs.

It wasn't very interactive, and the rooms were small. They had some activities, but I was not impressed with the facility. There really wasn't much that I liked about The Villas at La Canada.

Our Father has been a resident of The Villas @ La Canada for a year now and we are very pleased with the care he receives. All of the caregivers we have come in contact with are very compassionate and involved in the resident. They have so much going on. One of us visits daily so we also are involved with the Caregivers.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such wonderful comments about our community; I look forward to sharing this with our entire team. Please stay in close communication and let us know if there is anything we can ever do to help your father thrive, whether it's new activities, Villas events, or even a menu item. Thank you again, I look forward to seeing you around our community in the future.

I visited this facility

The Villas is one of the few places that would work with us with the dementia diagnosis without the price going too far up. The rooms were very nice, large, and carpeted. The people are very nice and helpful. My mom said it’s the worst food in the entire world, but it always smells good. They have several activities, but my mom doesn’t really participate in a lot of them. They usually have some form of exercise.

Provider Response

Jana- I am so glad to hear that your mom is enjoying her stay at the Villas. I’m glad you mentioned that we were able to work with you regarding your mother’s dementia diagnosis. We take every precaution to make sure that all of our residents; especially those suffering from dementia get the utmost care. Sorry to hear she doesn’t like the food. She may be excited to find out that we recently added a dietician to our staff, and as I’ve tasted her cooking I think your mom may change her mind. But if there is ever a special menu item or meal-time preferences that she needs, we are more than happy to accommodate her any way we can. Thanks again!

I would not recommend The Villas at La Canada. The level of compassion that was shown to both my father and myself was quite disappointing. Employees blamed eachother for misscomunications and oversights with my father...

Provider Response

Dale- Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. First and foremost, I would like to apologize for any miscommunication or inconvenience you may have experienced in the care of your loved one. I am discouraged to hear of your frustrations. It is always our goal to provide exceptional care to improve the quality of life for the elderly and support for their families as well. I would appreciate the opportunity to learn more about the specific things you were talking about to make things right. Please feel free to contact me at your soonest convenience.

I like the location of the Villas and the place is nice. The staff is very nice. We have guitar and piano players and singers. We have a church. We have bingo and I participate in different activities. The accommodation is very nice and we have a large room. We only have ten residents in a house.

They have 10 buildings with 10 people per building. It wasn't outrageously expensive as others can be.
