Independent Living Reviews for Solstice Senior Living at Bakersfield

I visited this facility

We visited the solstice Senior Living at Bakersfield. I liked it and I think I would go there before others. The staff was fine. The food was very good and filling, and the dining area was good. It was like a restaurant where the service was good, had a good selection, and it was more than I expected. The rooms were OK, nice, and when someone moves out, they made it new again. They showed me one model; one room was smaller, and I would choose a bigger one if I will go there. You can go outside and walk around. It’s located close to where I live, and I love this area. You can tell they work hard to keep them upkeep. Everything looks almost new, the furniture doesn’t look worn, and it’s really clean, quiet, and smells like a new facility.

I went to Solstice Senior Living. It was small, and the rooms were small, but it was even more expensive than the other places I looked at. It was beautiful, but my mom didn't like how the men were dressed in suits. It made her very uncomfortable. It was too formal for her on a day-to-day basis. The staff was awesome.

My father-in-law has been living in Solstice Senior Living at Bakersfield. It's very nice, clean, maintained, and the people were really friendly. My father-in-law has a studio. They have three meals a day, laundry facilities, and events that they plan on a regular basis. They also provide transportation to shopping and housekeeping service for no extra charge.

I moved into Solstice Senior Living, and my experience has been very good. I liked the area, and it's not too far from where I live. They have Mexican Train, and a Bridge group. My apartment is very nice, but very small, and so it's an adjustment to make. The facility is beautiful, and the meals are nice. The staff is fine.

Solstice Senior Living at Bakersfield was very well-maintained. The staff seemed very friendly. The facilities looked very well taken care of and it seemed like everybody was happy there. They have lots of activities too. They have Bingo, chair aerobics, and puzzles. It's in a very nice area of town. The rates are competitive. The food is very bland. It wouldn't be something that I would like, but maybe some seniors would. It's a little bit better kept up and the neighborhood was better than the other place I saw.

I visited this facility

It was very nice, clean, and bright. They had nice landscaping, and it was very comfortable. The person who assisted me was very nice and helped as best she could. They had card games going on, and they have a library. The dining area looks very good. They will have a day for trick or treating where the kids could come in and show people their costumes; I was welcomed to come and I could bring someone with me, so that was nice. They also have a beauty shop.

Everything was good -- the staff, the dining room, facilities, and the activities. The rooms were really nice and certainly fit the bill. Their assistance was good. It's clean and fairly well laid out. Carriage House Estates was on a flat area, so it would be safer for my mother to walk around with her walker. They did have a nice walking area on one side of it. They seemed to be very caring.
