I have been to Pacifica Senior Living Peoria many times. I do shows, and we have been there for years entertaining those folks. The caregivers are exceptional. The people seem happy and safe, and the staff seem to communicate well.

We visited Pacifica Senior Living. I liked this community, which is my second choice. I like that once you bring somebody in, they stay at that same cost for the rest of their lives. I didn’t see many activities, but I did see a lot of people sitting around watching TV. I saw the caregivers with the residents. I thought the rooms were small. It would just fit a bed and didn't have a closet. The amenities for the individual rooms were quite small. Residents are in a pod, so their dining room is for each pod. It is the central common area is the dining room, the living room, and the hang out room. They have a kitchen facility right in the pod, so if someone wants something different, they can adjust to whatever the residents want.

Thank you for your positive review! We are very proud of our community and memory care program. We recently started a Facebook page and post weekly pictures of our residents and their interesting activities. (The link to the Facebook page is on our website). If you want to see the activities they are engaging in it is a great way to stay involved.

My father is currently at Pacifica Senior Living Peoria. It's very clean and well kept. I like the setup of the building. I also like that the lawn is green with trees, so he can go outside and be out. My father says that he does try to get involved and watches TV.

Provider Response

Hi, we're so glad that we were able to go above and beyond your expectations! Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you; we are more than happy to help!

I’m glad I found Pacifica Senior Living; they do a fantastic job. They don’t restrict my dad’s wandering; they wander with him, so I am sure he is very happy there. The nice thing about it is when my dad wants to go outside, he gets up and goes outside. He can walk all around the two buildings that he’s at, which is about a quarter mile of sidewalk for him. It is perfect for him, and it is the least expensive of the three places that I looked at. It’s very nice and clean. The staff is very caring and very helpful; the RN there is very competent. If there are all 12 residents and the cottage is full, there’s 6:1 ratio of caregivers to people. Right now, because all the rooms aren’t full in my dad’s cottage, it’s 5:1, so he never has to wait very long if he needs anything. I was impressed with the whole place. I’ve been there when they’re serving and cooking. There’s a chef there who does the cooking for seven cottages. It smells fantastic, and my dad cleans his plate every time, so I think it’s safe to say the food is good. It has a lot of activities; they don’t just sit around and watch television. They have an Oktoberfest coming up soon, where they’re inviting everybody to come to that. I visited several places, and they just stood out in all the issues and questions that I had.

We chose Pacifica Senior Living for my grandfather because of the cleanliness, the friendliness, and the activities that they do with the individuals. So far, it has been very good and very pleasant. He has a private room, but they also have shared rooms available. The staff is wonderful. They actually seem like they care to be there and want to be there to help the people.

My wife will be moving to Pacifica on the 28th. They have cottages with 10 people per cottage. They’re undergoing a $33M renovation, and this is the first cottage that’s finished. There is a dining room and living room area with TV in every cottage. They’re enclosed; the only lock is on the outside fence. There’s no lock except the outside doors, as opposed to the a lot of places that have interior locks between halls. This is just completely open. Each cottage has a patio that’s like the old Western stuff where they have a big veranda or porch. There are individual bathrooms in every room as opposed to communal showers. The staff treated me exceptionally well. They’ve got some experienced caregivers. One lady has 11 years in there, so I guess it can’t be too bad. They take people shopping and they took them to the butterfly museum. Most of the residents I saw during the two times I was there seemed like happy campers, which is as much as you can expect from Alzheimer’s patients. They also had an ice cream/root beer social, and everybody was having a good time.

I was impressed with Pacifica but they couldn’t accept my father. The lady I was working with, Divia, went out of her to help us understand some of what was going on with the disease and with my father. The facility was set up in cottage type situations, the residents have their own bedrooms but there were common areas like, a kitchen area with a staff round the clock. It had a home like setting and feel. I would recommend that others check it out for their family member.

My wife had her respite care at Pacifica Senior Living and she was comfortable there. The facility was very clean. They put her in the appropriate level and she fit in with the activities that they had.

My sister & I thought the facility was very nicely laid out. The employees were friendly and pleasant. We found out that many of them had been there a long time, which was nice to hear. The cottages house only 15 people each, so the caregivers get to know the residents better. It is also a continuing care facility, so as our Mom gets weaker, she is placed in a higher care cottage all the way through to hospice. They accept state aide, if that is needed in the future.

Provider Response

Hi, thank you for taking the time to share your review, we are now under new management and invite you back for a tour. Please feel free to contact with any and all questions. We hope you have a wonderful day and we hope to see you at one of our upcoming activities!

When my father in law was diagnosed with onset dementia, it was both devastating and a relief in that, finally we knew why he was doing and acting in some of the ways he was. It is such a complex issue that my husband and I, including his siblings, could only try to rationalize, without knowing why. Once diagnosed, it was he who said, "Well, I'm probably going to need some help." My husbands sister and brother flew down to Arizona from Washington three weekends in a row to help scout and tour facilities. As the child of a person diagnosed with dementia, care is of the utmost concern, good quality care in a place you can trust because you can't, regardless of what you think, be there 24 hours a day. The first weekend out we toured about six facilities. Encore was one of them. We all agreed instantly to fall in love with the cottage-type settings, how they grouped residents with the same needs or should I say, level of care, together. My father in law was in the early stages (onset) and was still doing a lot of things on his own. He still liked shopping and reading books and magazines, still loved playing with his cats and taking walks. He's in his mid-eighties and you'd think he was in his sixties. What I also liked, personally, was Encore's "color coordination" of rooms/cottages. Bushes and bright green trees everywhere. Staff EVERYWHERE. Smiling staff at that, people who seemed well educated and caring. Sometimes when a person chooses to work in this field, frustration seems like a better term. I didn't meet, come across or speak to one person who seemed frustrated. There seemed to be enough staff around so one over many doesn't take the full burden. Tons of family resources and a brochure that names names. Which I also like. If you have an issue with any certain aspect, you have the exact director/facilitators name. Friendly place! p.s. The office gal is a doll. Really explains everything and knows her stuff.
