Solstice Senior Living at Bakersfield was fine. They're great, very friendly, welcoming, and have several options. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. They had a library. The food was OK; it didn't look great.

Very impressed with the care my parents get at Solstice. Before Covid - they had so many fun things to do and entertainment at least once a month , sometimes twice a month. During Covid, they are doing their very best to keep everyone safe, doing games by speaker and trying their best!! Delivering meals to the rooms and encouraging residents to exercise. Thank you staff and workers I would love to name people but don't want to miss anyone!! Sincerely, a happy daughter, CJ

Solstice Senior Living at Bakersfield is a beautiful place, but we had to find more of an assisted living place for my mother. The people were very compassionate. They came by and knocked on her door, and they tried their best to accommodate her needs. The food was good. Even the chef came in to ask her how the food was. Everyone was really great. We chose that place because of the area and the beautiful surroundings; it was nice inside and out. If your loved one needs more care, you have to purchase that outside of the facility. It's very independent.

We have chosen Solstice Senior Living at Bakersfield for my parents. The price was reasonable for all the amenities. The place was very clean, and the people were really nice and very welcoming. It has everything that my parents need at this time. The rooms have been updated and have new carpets. They have nice flooring and a lot of closet space. My parents will be moving in in January. I would live there if I could live there. They have a chef and a nutritionist. Food is very balanced and you have a lot of choices. They bake their own bread and they make their own dessert. It is really nice; it is really good. They have all kinds of stuff. They have a game room; they have activities all day long. When we were there, they were having a fireside chat with eggnog. They have happy hours, they have a chapel, and they have three or four services every week for different religions. They have a lot going on.

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.

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.
