Memory Care Reviews for Pacifica Senior Living Newport Mesa

I visited this facility

We went to Pacifica. It smelled when we walked in, and it's right on the freeway. My wife can't sleep with traffic noise, so it wasn't going to work out for her. However, the staff seemed nice, as well as the person who toured us. I observed a group playing a game. The rooms were small and didn't have TVs, but the dining area was fine.

I wasn’t impressed with Pacifica at first. It was more of an individual long-term care place, and I was looking to move both of my parents, so it didn’t satisfy that need. Other than that, it was a nice facility. It’s a small environment but nice. The rooms are of a good size, and the dining area was small but nice. The neighborhood was quiet.

Pacifica is a small and a secure lock-down facility, but it doesn’t feel like one. The grounds are locked and not the individual rooms, so it has a homey atmosphere. They have nice grounds where they can wander by themselves or take an escort if they need one. The neighborhood is quiet, and the facility is backed up into a residential area. The residents live in cottages, with 7-10 rooms in each. You can have an individual room or two people in a room, but the bathrooms are shared, which is good for people with memory problems. They are very well staffed, have a day nurse on duty from Monday to Friday, and have doctors who come and visit, including a podiatrist who comes periodically. They also have hospice, so, hopefully, we may never have to move her again. My mom is getting moderate care. They do all of her grooming and manage all her medications. You can use their pharmacy or your own. They have hairdressers who comes once a week. They serve meals in the dining room, and the people in the same cottage sit together, so it’s more like a family. They have a lot of activities to keep the residents busy, like bingo, painting, different arts and crafts, and bowling. They have really worked well with us.
