Assisted Living Reviews for Las Villas Del Norte

I visited this facility

We visited Las Villas, and I wasn't happy with the way the food smelled. It was a little pricey and not independent living. When you come in, it seems a little depressing, not bright and wonderful. There were people in wheelchairs sitting right in the little room next to the door, and it was not appealing to my friend.

Las Villas is very pretty and the staff is very friendly. The food is quite good. That is where the good ends. My dad returned to his assisted studio apartment from the hospital and had no clothing, bedding, or his power recliner. He was soiled and had a bloody rash. I requested that he be showered and changed into clean clothing at that time. I was told that would happen. That was on Friday night. On Monday morning he was lying flat on the bed, still in the same soiled clothing, and still without his clothing, bedding, or recliner in the room. His arm had bled and the dirty shirt was stuck to the sore. In the skilled area, he was left without clean clothing, and with his soiled clothing remaining on the bathroom floor for at least 12 hours. They were apologetic, but didn't seem to take my concerns seriously. I could not, in good conscience, recommend this facility to anyone. The one star is more than I would like to give them

I was very diappointed in this facility. The nursing care leaves much to be desired. The facility is clean and without an unpleasant oder. The pt dept is a joke not wanting to trat this man although he was transfered from an acute rehab facility. The management is insulting and rude. They switched us from a private room to a semi private room without prior knowledge. This place is not for a loved one.

We didn’t care for Las Villas at all. There was no parking available on the day that we showed up. There was high traffic in terms of people. It’s an older facilityT, and it was really dark. he community area was also very dark. They said they kept it dark as it added a feeling of calm. The people did seem very nice though.

Las Villas Del Norte is close to us. They're understaffed, and the service is slow, but they have good attitudes. The food is good, and it's very clean.

My parent has been at this facility for many years, yet no one that works there knows who he is. I asked his nurse, and she told me she had only been there a month and a half so she didn't really know about him or his conditions. Uhm how long does it take to know someone? The laundry service is laughable. You may or may not get your laundry items returned to you. They have a total disregard and lack of respect for your personal items. If you ask a question about anything, you will NOT get a straight answer. They pass the buck so much, I need a gps to find out who I need to talk to next to get a question answered or a concern addressed. If you end up at this facility, be prepared to be a squeaky wheel or you will be completely over looked and ignored.

I dropped into the memory care of Las Villas Del Norte right after dinnertime, and it was pretty bad. A woman fell out of her wheelchair as she was being pushed. She was bleeding and they didn’t have enough people on-site to help. The caregiver and residents of the memory care were getting upset because they were waiting in their wheelchairs and there was no one available to push them out of the area, so they were all sitting in the hallway. After I toured that facility, I was turned off by it. The rooms were OK, but they didn’t have a neighborhood like I wanted where someone in memory care can roam around. Everyone was in wheelchair, so I didn’t like that at all.

Las Villas Del Norte has an assisted living section and a skilled nursing section where we’ve had a wonderful experience every time my mother-in-law has had acute rehab there. It’s clean, and they take good care of the patients. She’s been there twice: once post-stroke and once after hip replacement. Each time, the acute care section of their skilled nursing facility has just been wonderful. It’s a very nice facility that I would highly recommend, especially for the nursing staff and the care staff.

We moved my husband at Las Villas Del Norte because he needed more care than we could provide him. The staff has been very good in keeping an eye on him, but they need more caregivers for their residents, as they are understaffed. The assisted-living part was great, but the memory care was another story. They show you the best part and then the worst part when you get in there.

I liked Las Villas overall. Their assisted living was very nice, but their memory care -- which is what we were looking for -- had showers that were separate from the rooms, so the residents had to walk down the hallway to the shower. I didn’t want to place our aunt where she has to walk down the hallway to take a shower; I would want her to take a shower in her own room and not have to go down the hallway. The staff was very friendly; they were nice. They had skilled nursing, and this was one of the things I liked about the place. The rooms were pretty small; they were some of the smallest rooms I'd seen. They were playing a memory game to remember actors, actresses, and famous directors of old movies like Alfred Hitchcock -- things like that.

Nancy set up a meeting for me to tour many places for my father, after touring I found Las Villas Del Norte to be very clean and surprising they were priced very reasonable compared to the others I looked at and also have studio apartments which many places don't offer. The staff is very friendly and accomadating, the residents are also very welcoming and friendly. My Father likes the food which was very important to him and for $10.00 each we can pay and enjoy having a meal in the dining room with my Father which we often do and have discovered that many of our friends have parents there.

My visit with Elmcroft was fine. It was probably the best and most helpful interview and guided tour I might say that I had. That was the only one of the four I visited that I would consider for my partner. It was my best option partly because they had a separate facility although it was limited for patients who still needed some kind of care on a short-term basis, and I really thought that was going to be appropriate. The layout of their facility was better for my partner who needed a walker or transport chair. The layout, the staff, and everything else was just the best. I saw the dining room, and it was the best. They were open 24 hours.

We are in the process of moving my mother to Las Villas Del Norte and she will start living there around October. I choose it because it has five levels of care. They have the independent, assisted living, skilled nursing, vintage, if they had a broken hip or something, and then they have the memory care. So far, the people working there seem good. They seem really busy, and it appears that they could use more help. I saw a couple of different rooms, there's a brand new wing that has been built, and it is beautiful. However, for mom's situation, it will not be the best. So, she will be on the main part of the building, which is older and has not been updated, but they are going to paint and place new carpets down for mom. It is good. It is a little apartment with a little kitchenette, a balcony, and one bedroom. They have activities like exercises just about every day. They have a pool. They usually have one or two kind of scene thing like a luau every month and on Wednesday, they go out to the grocery store and CVS. They also have a pedicure place that they can go to. I think it is good. I have eaten there, mom will eat brunch there again on Sunday, and she is surprised that she can have that every week.

Mom is in a studio apartment at Elmcroft of Las Villas. We like the people who work there and we like how they care for the residents. They were friendly and kind. I also like the cleanliness of the facility. It had a nice fresh smell and their lighting is pretty good. It has an outdoor area that is lovely with grass and trees near the swimming pool. Their dining room is pretty and we like their food. They have a selection where if you don’t want what is being served, you can select from several sandwiches and several salads. They have a salad bar and a soup bar. They do some activities, like they go on scenic drives, attend concerns, and go on walks to several parks. The facility has a happy feeling to it.

Elmcroft was clean, and it was nicely decorated and maintained. There wasn't anything really negative. It seemed to be well-run. I had good feeling about it; it had a homey feeling. They're not allowed pets. There was one person, and she was very, very friendly and a very nice person to talk to. I was pleased.

My visit with Las Villas Del Norte – it was very clean facility, seems to be very caring people. They have a lot of activities. When the nurse came out to evaluate my mother, she was very thorough and very kind. The dining room was clean and very formal. It was like a restaurant.

Overall, Las Villas Del Norte is a very nice facility. They have one bedroom. They have balconies and it's pretty much like every place that I've seen, but it's very clean and it's reasonably priced. It also got continuum level of care.
