Assisted Living Reviews for The Watermark By The Bay

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My dad is at Bayside Park. The experience is overall positive, but they are not always on top with specific medications and care needs as much as I think that they should be. They are probably undertrained and understaffed. They need to improve on the oversight in care of the patients who need a higher level of care. However, maintenance and upkeeping are good. The food is OK. The rooms are nice.

I visited this facility

Bayside Park has excellent facilities. It is a bit big and probably a little impersonal. It is very expensive. I'd say the facility is a four, but the price is way above the odds.

I visited this facility

A good friend's dad stayed here for months & as we visited got to see the happenings on the inside. They strive to be unique by keeping seniors active with activities, opportunities to keep learning and growing by staying active in the community. They really take the time to notice what appeals to the senior community and tries to implement it! AND they have some holistic practices keeping it trendy too!

I'd give this place 10 stars if I could. It's fabulous. They offer assisted living, independent living, and dementia care. It's in a new building in an arty part of Emeryville that's really a work of art in itself. Walking into it is like walking into a modern museum. There's a stunning arch, skylights, beautiful roof gardens. The whole independent living section has true apartments that are gorgeous and come complete with housekeeping services. The assisted living units are also nice, graciously appointed apartments. And the dementia care units are nicely appointed and spacious, with a full restaurant-style/catering kitchen. There's even a full gym, with physical therapy and massage on site"”and always a lot of art on display. There are a number of artists who live there. It's not just that it has the kind of ambiance that appeals to families, though. It also walks the walk in terms of care. The family that owns it and the staff are totally wonderful. Very engaged. They know the residents well, and they offer very skilled care. The last time I was there, the chef who works there was walking around asking each person for their favorite childhood recipes, and he used that to plan meals. Considering all that, it's reasonably priced. This place is so awesome, I want to live there.

When you walk in the door, you think it's a place you'd like to live yourself. The facility is gorgeous in every way, with everything under the sun under its roof--exercise facilities, exercise programs, a wading pool, any number of workshops, beautiful quiet rooms. They couldn't have given my mother-in-law better care, including providing lots of activities meant to "encourage" her memory. On the staff are very caring people, who couldn't treat the residents there more respectfully. We would visit everyday"”and the staff would always welcome us warmly, even bringing us food at mealtimes. The private rooms are like elegant hotel rooms"”beautiful. The cost seemed like a bargain, at about $4,000 per month.
