We moved our grandma in about a month ago and she loves it! We could not be happier with the level of care shown to our grandma. Staff is kind and the food is great. Grandma is happy and so are we.

Dayna, we're happy to hear you had such a positive experience with our team!

Pacifica has been really great. They have been wonderful with my grandma, and she can be difficult. She's there for almost a year now. The food is wonderful. They have so many activities. It's better than I ever expected it to be, because she really didn't want to go. So I'm really happy that it turned out to be much better than we expected. She's so comfortable now that she'd rather stay there for the holidays than go the family's house. She would rather us come there, so now I spend the holidays with her there. She loves bingo, she does sometimes the sit and step exercise, and other days when I got there they were doing some kind of cooking in one of their little rooms. They also do coloring and do potted plants thing. Just about everything. She would also participate in church. She's way more active now. I haven't had any problems with any of the staff. They have all been so great. The food is amazing. She's a picky eater, but she has eaten so well since she's gotten there. I usually go and have one there almost every day. She usually eats everything, and we finally got some weight on her. The place is always super clean. The outside is beautiful and the inside is always clean and decorated for the holidays. She likes what they have going on. I speak to all the other people that go in there too because there's quite a few other daughters and people who come in and have lunch, and we all feel the same way. It's a great facility. It really is.

Pacifica was good and friendly. The director was helpful but my mom thought it was a little dark in there and need more light. My mom doesn’t see very well. I thought it was really dated.

My father is at Pacifica Senior Living. I like its small size, the sense of community, and the staff. The staff is caring, lighthearted, and well-suited for the work. The rooms are clean, well-kept, and very nice. They have an array of activities both in the community and field trips. They keep them very active.

Pacifica Senior Living was beautiful. My aunt and I went there to observe and the staff was very nice. They had a dining room and they brought cookies and coffee. The rooms were very nice. They had activities like bingo, lessons and someone played the piano. The reason why I didn't choose them was because they didn't have after memory care. They had a memory care but it was in a separate building.

Thank you for your review.

My mom is in Pacifica Senior Living Bakersfield. We're happy with it. We looked all over and that's the one that we like best. We just like the way they diagnosed my mom and just the way they were, the people in general. For us, this place was a better fit for my mom. It is just a nice facility. She has been there since September. The staff is wonderful. Overall, they're exactly what we needed and they're doing a wonderful job. We have no complaints about them whatsoever.

My dad is very happy in Pacifica Senior Living Bakersfield. Everything is good and he likes it there. It has a very friendly environment. He likes the food and he eats all the time. They have all kinds of different activities. They even have little buses to take them out sometimes. He has a one-bedroom apartment and it has plenty of room for him. It is just kind of an open bedroom with a nice big closet. It has plenty of space for his bed and his wheelchair that I got for him. He also has a little kitchen area with a microwave and a small refrigerator. The bathroom is really huge. It has all the seating and everything. He likes his apartment. What I like best about this facility is the management and the staff. I'm very satisfied with them. They are really helpful and friendly. They keep a good eye on him and check on him a lot. They would call me if something is not right. They make sure that all of his medications and everything is going all right. They will make copies of his medications for us every time he has a doctor's appointment just to make sure that we double check. They make sure he goes down and eats. They also keep his room nice and clean. They're just great. I would definitely recommend this place.

Memory Care Reviews for Pacifica Senior Living Bakersfield

October 08, 2019

By Tanya Harrington

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My mom tells me every time I see her that they treat her really good. She eats well and they really push fluids so the residents don’t get dehydrated. My moms short term memory is zero but can still play the piano like she did years ago. Pacifica is truly amazing. I have not met a staff member that does not show compassion.

Provider Response

Hi Tanya, thank you very much for taking the time to leave us this positive review for our team at Pacifica Senior Living Bakersfield (AL). We appreciate it & so do our other reviewers at Caring. We hope to see you again soon!

Pacifica has good programs in place to care for the residents, communicate with the families, and interface with outside health care providers. When your loved one first arrives here it is confusing and maybe frightening for both the resident and the family. Trust the Pacifica system to overcome these hurdles; everyone will feel at home in no time at all. We have been using memory care for about four (4) months now and have found the staff to be wonderful.

Provider Response

Hi, thank you for taking the time to share your review, your opinion is very important to us. Did you know we have a Facebook page with pictures of our residents and their interesting activities? (The link to the Facebook page is on our website. 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!
