I am/was a resident of this facility

I like the exercise classes. We have an excellent 24-hour nurse. I had an injury while on a trip, and she treated me every day.

I visited this facility

They're in the process of trying to rehab an older building. It's a beautiful large place, and it's right on the beach. It was a hotel formerly. This is what they call a step down unit, so it has memory care and skilled nursing. The guy that took us around was rather indifferent. He just walked ahead of us. It was not as good a visit. I was not impressed with White Sands La Jolla, and there was a large upfront fee.

Each day, I receive excellent service from the top administration to the staff at the front desk, maintenance, housekeeping, dining room, outside services (trips)...all that is done for me here at White Sands. The quality of work, assistance, time taken, and expertise is given with patience, a positive attitude, and love. I could not find a better, more friendly place anywhere else. My gratitude to all. God bless you.

We live in paradise. It's not just a perfect location (on the beach) within walking to the Village of La Jolla, it is the people -- both residents and staff. We have FUN. So many interesting events and things to do. We love it. Our best decision.

A beautiful ocean view location with a caring and attentive staff. There are lots of interesting trips and activities arranged by our extremely creative Activities Director -- theater, museums, symphonies, nature walks, etc. -- and an excellent transportation in-house. No car needed.

The outings planned, advertised, and conducted are excellent - both in the variety and the content. Thank you for the support and interest of the staff.

We have been residents of White Sands now for a year. Being located on the Pacific Coast, it is like living at a Mediterranean resort. The services provided are excellent, the food offerings have caused me to gain a few pounds, but no excuse as White Sands has exercise classes and a well-outfitted gym.

White Sands is truly a haven for senior living. It has a wonderful, caring, attentive staff and friendly residents. It offers professional medical care, physical therapy, various activities, and entertainment on and off campus with dining overlooking the ocean. An added feature is its location close to town. Transportation is provided or you can walk to the scenic La Jolla beach

In independent living, I receive house cleaning every two weeks and trash and recycle pick up. Emergency attention and limo service in an atmosphere of ocean front charm. Both assisted living and full health care available.

Very pleased with quality of renovations to our unit before we moved in. The staff has been great in all ways possible -- helpful as can be. Plenty of day trips are available, and the ocean view is great. Food selection and quality has been appreciated and enjoyed. We've been quite pleased with our choice of White Sands.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

When my siblings and I searched for the best assisted living for our then 92 year old mother, our main priority was a residence that exuded warmth and security within a family-oriented environment. We found this, and more, at White Sands of La Jolla, situated 20 minutes north of San Diego, California. Now five years later we have not been disappointed. White Sands' staff has been exceptionally helpful every step of the way. The nurses and CNAs have tirelessly provided the best personalized care imaginable. With three of us living out of state, White Sands administration has adapted to our particular needs throughout our extended visits, promptly contacting us in the event of any unusual circumstance. The entire staff is incredibly friendly and efficient, to the point we are on a first-name basis with everyone, including the kitchen servers, maintenance, and all the caregivers. It has been tremendously comforting for us as a family knowing that Mom's needs are being met and she is being cared for with the utmost respect and dignity. I highly recommend White Sands of La Jolla.
