Independent Living Reviews for The Terraces of Chico

The Terraces of Chico was a very small place without a whole lot of rooms and needed some upgrading because it was an older building. They didn't have a library or a pool.

The Terraces of Chico was OK. They were pretty upfront about everything and showed me what they offer. It was obvious I didn't care for it; what they offer was OK, but it was just not a good fit for my mom, so I decided not to bother with it. It’s designed for people who are more independent, almost like a hotel in a way. The assisted living part was more of a locked down facility. It wasn’t entirely a lock down, but it was a smaller area with smaller rooms. There were activities for them; some just didn’t care to do a whole lot of activities, but the ones I did see participating seemed like they were OK enough. It seemed like the staff was trying to involve people. The activity room for the assisted living facility was really small, and I was like, “Oh man, they actually have people in here to do activities,” and I just couldn’t quite understand how that would work with such a small area. I saw the independent side's dining area, which was really nice and had a real menu and all kinds of stuff, but I didn’t see where the assisted living side ate.

The Terraces was just a nice, comfortable, and friendly place. It’s near the lake, and there are little walking paths. It’s very good, and there’s a transition place until you go to another section where you can get fulltime or more care; it's very lovely. The staff was excellent and very attentive. The rooms were nicely done and quite spacious, you have the choice of the size you want, and they are the perfect fit for my husband. Later in the few years if I should join him, they have a little larger suite that would work very well for us. The dining room was very clean, the meals are very varied and well prepared; that’s the highlight of a lot people in that facility because of the excellent chef and the excellent meals that they served. They have a bus that takes you to shopping, and various things in the city like cultural events at the university, and for those that really don’t want to go anywhere much, there’s things like cards and a nice library. It’s the best in this community in my opinion.
