Assisted Living Reviews for Carlsbad By the Sea

I visited this facility

The place is beautiful, the ocean is literally right there. As soon as you walk in you notice how clean it is and how beautiful. Theres people of all ages i believe its 55 and up. And they looked happy unlike other places we looked. It didnt look like they were being caged inside the whole time. We viewed the rooms which were beautiful lots of space and a big bathroom. We also toured the kitchen seemed like it had pretty good food for a retirement home. All the staff was super nice which was great made us feel very welcome. However there was one small down fall. Because it was sooo nice it was on the expensive side so we chose not to go there. Basically you get what you pay for.

My 90 year old grandmother has lived at Carlsbad by the Sea since the facility opened nearly two decades ago. She enjoys living there for a wide variety of reasons. Her apartment is nice, and offers her a personal space surrounded by her own familiar belongings, even in an assisted living situation. The location near the beach is beautiful, and she is walking distance from restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. She often uses the shuttle service for further trips. The staff, from the nurses, to the receptionists, to the dining room servers, are all very kind. They know my grandmother's name, and remember her preferences from day to day. They welcome visiting family members, and put together impressive buffets for holidays. The food is healthy and delicious. Residents have the option of dining in their apartments, or in the well-appointed dining room with a full service staff. A wide variety of enrichment activities are offered, and my grandmother enjoys telling us about the many activities that she participates in with her friends and neighbors. We have not had any major issues with the facility in the entirety of the time that she has resided there.

I visited this facility

Carlsbad By The Sea was the one I liked the best because it was downtown and right next to the ocean. I talked to the people there and they were happy. The rooms were great. They had a bedroom, a full kitchen and a laundry. It was a great place. However, it was a bit expensive.
