Reviews of Sea View Senior Living Community | Independent Living
Michael P-C July 16, 2015
I am a friend or relative of resident
Sea View is a moderately large residential senior community, offering three different levels of care (independent, assisted, and memory care). Rooms vary in the amount of ocean view offered. On the east side of the building, the view is toward Hwy. 101 and the lush hillsides just beyond it. Our friend, one of the first people to move in, has a lovely ocean view from her third floor corner apartment on the west side. Ocean view rooms are probably not available to new residents because residents have first choice when any room becomes available.
We dine with our friend regularly so I can say that the food, while institutional, has been of very good quality under two different chefs (the first leaving to open our town’s only high quality restaurant). There is a wild wetlands area in the center of the west side of the building, surrounded by a raised deck, and we used to watch the deer during dinner but it has grown so lush that they are nearly invisible now.
Sea View is also quite community-oriented, offering my wife's family caregivers' support group a free meeting space, supporting the various festivals and activities around our small town, and using their shuttle bus to take residents to those festivals and activities.
If we had to give up our home to live in such a community, I would have no qualms in moving into Sea View. I can speak from experience about its comparative quality because, 10 years before Sea View was built, we had to place my mother in another facility in town. It was recently-built, appeared very nice, and seemed very comfortable. However, after three years of declining quality, we moved her in with us because lack-of-care issues, including them ignoring her very obvious incontinence.
In contrast to our experience, I watched a friend of our friend's gradually decline in her abilities. Sea View allowed her to remain in the general population as long as it was possible before recommending to her family that she would do better in Brightcreek, Sea View’s memory care unit. With Brightcreek being in the same building, the transition was no more jarring to her than moving to a new apartment and her friends can still easily visit her.
