Assisted Living Reviews for Ponte Palmero

Ponte Palmero had a lot of walking space. Their clientele was very friendly. They were sitting around talking with each other, and they related to the staff extremely well. You could tell everyone appeared extremely comfortable and enjoyed being out of their rooms. They were sitting by the fire, reading books, playing games, and doing self-initiated activities, so I was impressed with it.

I'm moving to Ponte Palmero. It was well-kept, clean, and had friendly people and good food. It was near my current home. They don't have large grounds because it's in separate buildings, but otherwise, it's very nice. The menu was adequate, and it looked good to me. The rooms were very nice. It's one of the larger ones that I've found and comparable in price to the others.

Ponte Palmero assisted living is smaller. My parents just have a little two-bedroom apartment, and they still get their meals. The staff people come in and clean, help them bathe, and stuff like that. It depends on each individual person what kind of care they will get.

We stayed at Ponte Palmero, and I was very happy with the facility. It was everything that I had hoped it would be. The treatment, the staff, and everything was wonderful. We would have probably stayed longer except that several things came up at the same time with the family involving a major illness, so I thought I better come back home. I have nothing but wonderful things to say.

Ponte Palmero was very nice with a nice atmosphere. The staff seemed very friendly. They didn’t have shared rooms, just individual rooms. I didn’t see any activities or even a room to do activities. Their dining was more cafeteria-style. There was nice furnishings. It was new and clean and felt like a resort.

We went to Ponte Palmero. The staff bent over backwards to make our time there as pleasant as possible. It is beautiful. I want to live there when I reach my mother-in-law's age. They had one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments in the assisted living. The food they served there were absolutely superb. We went there a couple of times and everything we went there, the residents say hi to the people that were doing the tour. They had lots of activities. This was a place where I would put my own mother. They had an on-staff nurse who could help if you were having problems. They have that accessible 24 hours a day. They take their residents to doctor's appointments. They have outings. They go to movies and activities so people could stay active. I really like that. They do shopping. It was set up in advance so that everybody knows what was going on. It is impeccably clean and fresh. The rooms were outstanding. I called them little apartments. They were like a townhouse. It was beautiful. It looked like it had been recently updated. It was nice and cheerful.

Ponte Palmero was the best among the facilities I visited, but they had no skilled nursing. They had activities, and they also provided transportation to local doctors. It was brand new.

My Aunt has been at Ponte Palmero for about five months now, and she loves living there. She was coming from her own home where she was getting 24/7 care and this was costing her over 17,000.00 a month. To find a place where I feel she was getting good care and not draining her pocket book was important. She is an very independent person and in no way was ready for an nursing home. With Pante Palmero she has her independence and the family feels that she is getting care that she really needs at the age of 104. Coming from her own home to a spacious two bedroom apartment was very important to her and easy for her to make the adjustments. The staff is very friendly and caring and the family feels that she is in good hands.

I found a place for my mother, and I am pretty happy right now. It is Ponte Palmero. I chose it because it was very attractive and close to where I live. I liked the staff and the whole layout was easy for my mother who has dementia. A lot of places that I went to, it was like you eat over here, but then you go over here for something else, and then you go there, and it is confusing. My mom needed something really simple, and this was the layout that was very simple for her. The rooms are very spacious and they have granite countertops in the kitchens. They have big kitchens and, in a way, that was not good for my mother because she doesn't really use the kitchen. But they have big kitchens and big bedrooms. She is in a two-bedroom, two-baths, and it is a very nice apartment. The apartments are outdoors. She walks from her apartment to the center, and she is not all enclosed. They have a very nice dining room and they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They have lots of activities going on. They have a shuttle that takes them to shopping and outings, to the movies and all kinds of things that they do. So there is a lot going on all the time. I like the staff; they have a very, very good staff. Very positive, upbeat place -- very cheerful. I was looking for a place that was not depressing for my mother, so she wouldn't feel like she was in a place where the people were not friendly. It is a very cheerful place, very friendly. The facility itself -- the senior center where people eat -- is very nicely appointed. Very nice accommodations, and the furnishings are very nice. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

My mother is at Ponte Palmero. We chose this facility because, first of all, their website gave much more information in terms of what their amenities were and potential pricing and everything else like that, plus floor plans. So when you're initially looking for the first time, it is nice to have a little more information there so that you can figure out. Other websites say, 'Give us your email and phone number and we will call you,' that doesn't sit well with me especially when I'm first initially looking for information. One of the things is that Ponte Palmero has the best website. My mother has just started there. She is living in an apartment. She has a full kitchen. It is wonderful. It is very nicely done and has many more amenities than any other places that I have looked at. The staff, so far, they have been great. They are very attentive and caring without being obtrusive. The food is good. The dining area is beautiful. They have all sorts of activities like different clubs, exercise classes, trips, and outings. The environment here is the best I was able to find.

My mother is moving to Ponte Palmero tomorrow. We chose this one because it is an apartment living community. So far, the staff has been very attentive. They have responded quickly and answered all our questions. They were more than accommodating. We had been invited to eat there, but we just didn't have the time, but everything looked wonderful. The menus looked great. What I like about this community is the fact that it is a gated community with a lot of areas. It is assisted living, independent living and memory care, so it is three-in-one separate little communities. Also, it is a lot larger and it is safe to actually walk around there. It has outdoor covered walkways between apartments. In terms of activities, they have field trips to pharmacy, grocery store, and shopping. If it was deemed an emergency for my mom, they would actually take her over to the shopping center, grocery store or pharmacy, even later at night. This community is very conveniently close to shopping and to restaurants. Most of all, it is close to freeway access so that I could get there. Their apartments were spacious and fabulous. Décor was nice. They have their own garden spots. Every resident has a little patch of garden that if they want to do their own gardening and pots. Also they have garages.

Ponte Palmero was the top that we saw. They were very nice. They had individual units and not apartments. They were very large. They had two-bedroom units. We had been there several times, and we were very seriously considering it. They staff was very nice, very accommodating, very friendly, and very informative. The units had full kitchen, granite counter tops, electric fireplace, wired for TV in every room, large refrigerators, washers, and dryers. They were nice units.

Ponte Palmero is pretty good, and we've been here for several years. They have both assisted and independent living, and we're in independent living. I can't say anything against it except that we live on the second floor, and you need to walk quite a distance from the dining room. We have a pool and different activities during the day. They have all the different kinds of games that you can play, water aerobics, and chair exercises. The grounds are kept up very well, and it just seems like everybody is very caring. The custodial staff is good, and the maintenance staff is really right with it.

Ponte Palmero was a nice place. My parents got all their meals, and the food was pretty good. They actually had a full two-bedroom duplex, so there was plenty of room and everything. The people were nice. They have a beauty shop, a swimming pool, and things like that.

Ponte Palmero was about seven years old. What I liked most about it was the independent, private cottages with garages. I liked the overall complex, the location, the people, and the dining room. They had a beautiful swimming pool outdoors. It's segregated by assisted living, memory care, and independent cottages, all separate areas of the same complex. They had two-bedroom/two-baths or two-bedrooms and a den and two-baths, a garage, patio, ground floor, and solar heating with everything included, like weekly housekeeping, change of linen, and all utilities. All you would pay for would be the telephone. They have all kinds of activities. They re-carpet and repaint each time a new person moves in. What we liked about Ponte Palmero is you can bring someone to assist you and there are no restrictions on that if you want to have some care in your own private place.

Ponte Palmero was a really nice place. In fact, we have made a deposit for my mom, but she is not ready to move in yet. We liked it because it was a beautiful and clean place. The staff was friendly and very nice. We spoke to some of the residents who raved about the place. The menu looked good, but we did not try the food. It was a very secure place. There's a Wells Fargo bank and a little mall right across the way. It was in a very comfortable community that had a salon and a nice swimming pool.

I love Ponte Palmero. I have a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment, with a big kitchen, and living room. We have housekeeping, and they keep it very clean. They have three meals a day. They have an exercise room, and they have classes.

Ponte Palmero is a very nice, clean and new facility. It's in a central location. The staff take residents on doctor's appointments. The rooms have a living room, a bedroom, a kitchen and a bathroom. The facility is expensive but I would still recommend it to others.
