Sutter Estates Retirement Community is doing a good job, and it's worth the money. The rooms are clean, and they're a little bigger than I expected. The people are very courteous. It's a good place for a senior citizen to retire to. It's not that expensive, and the people are very nice. They clean the rooms, and they cook the food. The staff is really great.
Sutter Estates is very welcoming, very personal. The staff is very responsive and involved, from what I've seen. As a facility, they don't offer assisted living directly in terms of services, but they are more proactive, by encouraging the family to add what services are needed. I find them responsive and helpful. My father definitely feels welcome there; they have established a nice environment for their clients. They have a bridge club, they do an exercise class pretty much every day, and play Bingo. Because it is a senior living rather than assisted living, as Cathy Stoker, who is the manager, explained to me, there are many sort of special interest groups of people that are informal, and so it is not so much that Sutter Estates itself offers a chess club. Instead, those people who like to play chess have found each other, and after that they pretty well knew that they like to play chess. They serve three meals a day in the dining area, and basically, if you don't show up, they are going to have someone looking for you just to make sure you are OK. They do house cleaning regularly. They have a website. I have their brochure, and I feel like the brochure they hand out fairly represents what they do, and we've been quite happy. It has been a month and a half since I first visited; I have been there four times, and every time they pay attention to the details and they get to know their people.
