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.

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.
