Assisted Living Reviews for Silvergate Fallbrook

October 10, 2021

By Gay Rose

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My father has been a resident at Silvergate for 5 years. He lived four of the years independently with no care and thoroughly enjoyed the outstanding food, friendly staff and activities. When he needed some assistance, all the staff were so kind and reassuring that the transition was accepted well. He has continued to enjoy activities. He is proud of his home at Silvergate and is grateful he made the move to be closer to his family. Silvergate has exceeded our expectations!

Provider Response

Thank you Gay! We are so happy that your dad has made Silvergate his home and that he enjoys the many activities that we offer. We will continue to provide great food and care to the five star standard you have given us.

The workers are caring and friendly. The food is great. The celebrations are detailed and lovely. The best thing is that I can call when I am concerned and they will immediately check on the resident for me and continue checking throughout the day. I also am contacted with any problem she has, even small ones. I'm always comforted that she is getting the care she needs.

Provider Response

You have been such a great friend to our dear resident, she is lucky to have you. We are so glad that you have been able to join us for some fun events and look forward to seeing you at our future events. I'm so glad that you are confident with our communication and our great care staff.

Everyone has extremely high expectations when researching adult care and senior residence options for our parents. We want them happy, safe, well-taken care of and an interactive environment where they can enjoy life. Silvergate Fallbrook continues to exceed my expectations in every area. The suites are beautiful, the grounds are meticulously maintained, and the food is outstanding. Most importantly, the residents are extremely happy. Kudos to the Silvergate leadership team and staff for providing my mother such a wonderful experience.

Provider Response

Thank you Karen for your kind words and five star review. We are so happy to know that we have exceeded your expectations, that is our goal. I'm so glad see your mom enjoying all the community has to offer and will continue to provide her with excellent service.

I have been so pleased with the love and care my mom receives at Silvergate. The staff is so patient, kind and respectful and the meals are delicious. The chef takes special care to offer many wonderful choices. The rooms are just the right size and the views pleasant. Residents can participate in crafts, exercise class or be entertained with musical performances and bingo. It puts my heart at ease knowing my mom is receiving excellent care.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for your kind words. We do our best to provide excellent service from every department, I am so glad we've met those expectations. I have to say that you're right, our residents enjoy a delicious menu each and every day! And we are very proud of our activities department that bring in such wonderful talent for our residents to enjoy, thanks again.

The SilverGate staff and care team have been exceptional in taking care of my dear friend. She needed to transition with almost no notice and the team was amazing in helping with the move. She felt instantly at home when she arrived. The move they facilitated from her home to her SilverGate was seem less for her. As my friend got stronger, she is enjoying the dining hall and acquaintances she’s making. She is now participating in outings and regular events on and off site. The med team is terrific and notify me of any and all changes with her and meds. They have been very efficient in getting her to her appointments, when I am unable to take her. I would love my parents to move in when their needs arise. He entire team us very communicative and responsive…. Excellent facility.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so happy that she has found her new home with our Silvergate family and are enjoying her participation in so many activities. We will continue to provide her with great care, thanks again.

My mom was a Silvergate resident for nearly a year. She had slight dimentia and the staff cared for her so well that she still had as much independence as possible but was very well taken care of. I visited frequently and had the opportunity to dine with her. The dining room was bright, the staff excellent, and the food even better! Thank you to the entire caring team at Silvergate for making her experience an excellent one.

Provider Response

Thank you for your kind words Patricia; we are so glad that your mom's time with us was so positive. We work really hard to achieve that goal each and every day.

Having our mom as a resident at Silvergate gives us great peace of mind. The facility is beautiful and very well maintained - lovely grounds, an amazing library for the residents to enjoy and so much more. The staff is truly exceptional and surpasses expectations

Provider Response

Thank you so much for your kind words regarding our community. We are so glad you chose Silvergate for your mom and that we have exceeded your expectations. We will continue to strive to offer her the best in retirement living.

I am/was a resident of this facility

Deciding to leave my home (after losing my husband of 59 years) and moving into Silvergate wasn’t easy. The buildings were beautifully decorated and maintained, the yards manicured and lush, the menus mouth watering, BUT....would I like it, would I fit in, would I be bored? My worries faded away after just a few days. The residents and staff were so friendly (the staff knew my name in a couple of days), the variety and quality of the meals amazing, and so many activities (bingo, movies, chat groups, crafts, etc.) that I can’t keep up with them! There’s even a well stocked library. I’m so glad I became a part of the Silvergate family!

Provider Response

We are so glad that your move to Silvergate met and exceeded your expectations! We call ourselves 'family' for a reason - its the place where everyone knows your name!

Silvergate is where I wish I could live when I require assisted living! Everyone is so kind and caring and my parents are very happy and feel cared for and safe here. Communication is top notch, as well as the food and residences. I am so very grateful I found this facility! Helen was an amazing support and I could not have made it through the placement process without her!

Provider Response

I am so glad you found us and so happy to know that your mom and dad are happy in their new home! Thank you for your kind words and support. We will continue to provide them safety, care and fun activities!

When the 2017 Lilac fire took my home I looked at Silvergate as I always heard it was held in high regard. It has been my home for 3 years and it has been truly "home". The employees and staff are exceptional, as is the food. I couldn't have picked a better place. Silvergate is a kind and caring community.

Provider Response

Dearest Jackie, we are so glad that we were here for you when you needed us in 2017 and so happy that you have made us your home for the past three years. We will continue to provide you with exceptional service and care.

We're very happy with Silvergate Fallbrook. It's just a challenge moving to a new place with my mom's condition. But the food is very good, the people are very nice and the place is really clean. The atmosphere is very comforting, very home-like and less institutional, and that's the thing we really like about it. The staff is very attentive, so we're happy. My mother is in a deluxe studio apartment there. They also have a basic studio as well as 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments. I have only eaten there once but my mom likes the food. I also like the layout of the community although my mom thinks it's a little hard to get around and going up and down the halls. They also have a lot of good activities that they offer. It would have been better if it's not that expensive, but it's comparable.

I visited this facility

Silvergate Fallbrook is a top-of-the-line place. They had a lot of activities and very attentive staff. It was clean and had housekeeping every day. Being a bigger facility, they had more things, like food, snacks, and drinks available throughout the day and three meals a day. It was a very nice place.

Provider Response

Thank you Jere for taking a moment to share with others your comments from your visit to Silvergate Fallbrook. We are pleased that you noticed our attention to detail. Our new service of all day dining is going well and the residents are enjoying the flexibility. We have a moderate size community, and friendly residents. Personal recommendations help bring more individuals and families to see for themselves the benefits of a Silvergate lifestyle. Thank you very much!

Of all the senior communities that I've visited, Silvergate Fallbrook was my favorite because they have independent living, assisted living, and memory care. If you have to move into a place like that, you won't have to uproot yourself to move again if you go up a level. The staff was very friendly, and the rooms were all clean. I was there while they were eating lunch, and it appeared to me that everyone that needed help with their food were being well cared for.

Provider Response

Thank you Sis for your positive review. We take pride in our country estate, staff and friendly residents. We believe in aging in place. Moving is difficult for everyone. Reviews like yours, help families with difficult decisions as they choose the best community. We appreciate the time you took to review us.

Silvergate Fallbrook was a very nice community. The nurse was wonderful. My mother-in-law had a beautiful room that looked out over the entrance. It's location to food, laundry, and everything else worked out really well. However, there was a constant problem with ants in the room. Overall, it was a nice community. The location and grounds were very nice. They had good transportation to the pharmacy and doctor's office. The activities were wonderful, too.

Provider Response

Thank you for your kind words you spoke about Silvergate. We do have regular maintenance for pest control and seek to address issues as soon as possible.

I visited this facility

Silvergate had a more clinical feel to it. They didn’t have any of amenities that the Temecula community has. The staff people were polite, and professional. It’s really just the overall feeling. The rooms were a satisfactory size. It’s just not what I was looking for. I didn’t really care about the size of the room. It's more of the whole package.

I thought Silvergate Fallbrook was very nice as well as the grounds. The staff was very nice and friendly, and they took me around. They said they couldn’t take my cousin unless she is really stabilized, and at this point she is not but if she was that would have been a great place for her. It was like a retirement resort, and it had a big area where everybody could meet. I was really hoping it would work out for her, but not yet. I would absolutely recommend them.

Provider Response

Thank you for your favorable review. Silvergate is a great place to live and work. I hope in the future your cousin's health improves and she is able to enjoy our resort living as a resident.

I’ve been to Silvergate a couple of times and somebody showed me around. I didn’t actually eat there, but they showed me the lunch room and dining room, and it definitely smelled good. It’s a little more assisted than independent although I think they are independent people there. It’s a very lovely facility, the people were very nice, and it’s little too close for me. They have rooms where they gather; one or two of them had a piano.

I went to Silvergate. The staff was personable. The room was small and it was upstairs. There was like a step into the shower. You have to pay someone to accompany residents to a meal. I didn’t find it to be something that would work for us.

Silvergate was absolutely wine and dining me, and I liked them a lot except that they're the most expensive so far. The staff has been the friendliest. I've gone out to one of their outing because they invited me and I liked it a lot. I had a good time. They didn't have a pool, a workout room, and it doesn't have much acreage, but it did feel homey.

I visited this facility

Silvergate is a big, clean, and nice facility. The only problem is that it's expensive. It's a big corporation. I just think they would have to look at their budget. It would be a good place but the only disadvantage is that it's not really set up if you have medical issues. It's very good for independent-living though. I wouldn't recommend them based on them tagging so many fees like laundry service and medication assistance.

I visited this facility

I'm very pleased with my tour at Silvergate Fallbrook. Helen was the person who helped me during my visit, and she was amazing, I loved her. I also loved their memory care unit. It was really pleasant. They had a lot of activities for the memory patients. There was also a beautiful garden in the center of the community. The rooms were a little bit smaller than the rooms at the community we ended up selecting. They invited me for a meal, but I had to go. They had all kinds of activities for the residents.

My mom is staying at Silvergate Retirement Residence and so far she is independent living, but soon she'll be needing assisted living care too. There is no smell of urine when you go in and the facility is really pretty. Their common areas are very nice too. They have a beautiful dining room where everybody gets to eat. They have a choice on their menu and food is excellent. They have all kinds of activities like games, movies and bingos. They also have a happy hour before dinner. My mom doesn't drink but she goes just because it is a social affair. In this event, they can choose whatever dessert they want. We are very impressed with Silvergate and I definitely would recommend it.
