Memory Care Reviews for Pacifica Senior Living Paradise Valley

I visited this facility

I've only been at Pacifica Senior Living one time. I went around with a lady, and she was very nice. She showed me everything. She was the person in charge. It was clean and the rooms were nice. Their bedroom was pretty large. They were serving lunch at the time in the dining room with the cooks. I'm not into the kind of food they serve; they were too healthy. They had a lot of vegetables on their plates. They were finishing up, and people were taking their plates away.

Pacifica Senior Living provides their nationally-recognized Rediscovery program to residents who reside in cozy rooms and beautiful outdoor seating and walking areas, which are discretely secured. Programs for residents diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, dementia or related memory impairments have been developed to encourage autonomy and rediscover talents while exploring new and interesting hobbies. Each community provides 24 hour staffing with licensed nurses, which is extremely important for those who may not be able to communicate healthcare needs. All levels of directed care are provided and accommodations for residents with behavioral issues are available. The staff is pleasant, willing to assist residents with genuine warmth and a desire to provide comfort when needed. I was impressed with their website, specifically the resources link. Important information is provided to families who are transitioning and dealing with stress.
