Assisted Living Reviews for Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care

I visited this facility

I went to Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care. The staff was excellent. It is probably where I would put my mother as the first choice. It was accessible and open. I liked the ambiance and the atmosphere. It was like going to the lodge really. It was just really, really nice. It was extremely well-kept. I saw the common areas through the windows. I met with the director outside, who very helpful.

We toured Paintbrush and will probably move my grandmother there, we are in the early stages of our search. This is a beautiful place, and the staff is so friendly. I met several of the Managers, and Randi spent alot of time with us. The menu is tempting, many items I would like and I know my grandmother would also. My grandmother likes to do the activities they have posted, and many residents were out and looking very happy. I enjoyed this visit very much!

My dad enjoys the atmosphere that Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care has. The staff is really good and they gave a reasonable price for him to get in. The food is good, there are lots of activities, and he is just having a great time there. They have card games, movies, happy hours every Friday afternoon, live music, treats for the residents, and they're taking the veterans, of which my dad is one of them, to the parade on Thursday. They also give them prizes if they win in their little card games/activities, and then they can trade them in with goodies afterwards. There are exercises every day, and they take them to their appointments if they need to. So, I've been so pleased with them. They also allow their residents to have pets and there's a little dog park down there for them. There's a beautiful courtyard and a pizza oven outside. Every so often they're going to do a pizza night, but I think they're still working on that right now. When you come into the facility, it's really designed from the Ahwahnee Hotel up in Yosemite. It's very pleasant and visually good.

There was nothing I didn't like at Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care. It was beautiful and they allow you to have your pets. I toured the assisted living part and it was top-of-the-line for me. The place looked very comfortable and laid-back. All the people that I saw looked happy too. Randy, the person who took me around, was very knowledgeable and very helpful. She made you feel like family. They had a salon, pool, a garden area, and lots of eating places. The outside area is beautiful. I just wish they had Medi-Cal.

Thank you Darlene, it was a pleasure meeting you and chatting about quality of life for your loved one. We appreciate your wonderful review!

Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care was big. It serves a lot more residents and the facilities were very, very nice. They have lots to offer as far as activities and living rooms. The residents were busy playing when we were there, and there's a lot of participation. It is a gorgeous facility. The staff that we met was very, very nice. They have gardens out there in the exterior that the residents have planted and tend to. It was a lot of fun. The other plus was they have an area for dogs and cats that the residents can bring their animals with them. That's a really cool benefit too. My mom doesn't have a dog, so it wouldn't help her out. She does have a giant tortoise. We met a lady that was out in the courtyard that had her dog with her, and so that's very, very nice. We didn't go to the memory care side because they had an outbreak. We just stayed in the assisted living, but Randi said they're both set up and offer the same. They have courtyards and gardens as well. They've been green all the way through this whole COVID ordeal that we've been through. They need to do one more testing to keep things safe for their residents, just to make sure it stayed that way.

Provider Response

Thank you Carolyn for this wonderful review. Out of an abundance of caution, we were limiting visitors in Memory Care. We continue to take every precaution mandated by the CDC and have no Covid in our community. Appreciate your kind words!

My father has moved into Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care. We have chosen it because of the price, the beauty of the facility, and the friendliness of the staff. It was a combination of the three. The staff is extremely friendly, caring, and very engaging with residents and their family. The food is outstanding. I've eaten there. They have activities like bingo and people coming in, and they have family dinner nights.

We went and toured Paintbrush in Fresno. I talked to Wendy, and she showed us around. She showed us a studio apartment that has two closets, a big bedroom, a big bathroom, and it's own little kitchen. It has a room for a card table too. My brother likes to use cards and stuff like that. The staff was wonderful. They have a courtyard and out in the courtyard they have a pizza maker; it's an oven. They get to cook pizza outdoors. In the room that I picked for my brother, they just put the carpet in and redid it. I also looked at the menu, and it looks pretty good. Also if my brother doesn't like their food, he can pick a hotdog or even a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Thank you Rolaine, we appreciate you and your family being part of our Paintbrush family!

I enjoyed seeing Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care. The only thing that surprised me was that the lady showed me every room, every amenity, and every type of care they offer, including a closed unit for people with memory problems. The other places I went to, they gave me lunch, but in this place they didn't offer that. So I didn't get to really see what their meals are like. They have things that are extra that you can pick up if you just want a snack. They have really nice things. The community is well laid out and they have a nice view outside. It looks like a pleasant place. The one staff member greeted me and another one took me on the tour. They were pleasant and I enjoyed meeting them. They have a lot of activities and they have invited me to come back for a luncheon.

Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care was wonderful. I was really impressed by it. It's rather new and easy to access. One of my daughters lives in Merced and one lives in Madera and they could just hop on the highway and be right there. It's just barely a block off the highway on the right. They had the two facilities, but I didn't get to tour the memory one. They had a menu out for the whole month on the bulletin board and had samples of the food. All the things they had were outstanding. They had a barista in their cafe where they had coffee, drinks, fruit, and little sandwiches available all day long. They had a great activities room, which was huge. They can have their animals there. They had an outside play yard for the animals where they can sit with them. The staff during the tour was great. The food looked well balanced and good.

Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care just had a rate reduction because they're trying to get the occupancy rate a little bit higher. The food is excellent, the places are kept up, and the caregivers are very personable. I wouldn't mind going there at all. There are so many things to stimulate their brain and they take them on outings for gambling, movies, and shopping.

My mother was at Paintbrush Assisted Living and Memory Care. Her room was very nice. It's set up like a studio apartment. It had a sink, a refrigerator, and a very roomy bathroom. It was a very nice facility. Most of the staff members were good. A few of them looked peculiar, like they never did a bed bath before or wasn't sure how to do a bedpan, which was a little annoying, but the majority knew what they were doing. A lot of them complained about the food. They had a library, a craft room, a room where you could do basic exercises, and they had a dog run for the residents who have pets because they allow small dogs. They would take them on field trips or take them to the store on certain days of the week. They had a hairstylist on-site. The facility was well kept. A lot of the residents enjoyed the activities. They had bingo, crafts, and once a week somebody came in and did dancing lessons with the residents.

Paintbrush is excellent. We love everything about it. It's cheaper but beautiful. They care for memory loss. They help my ex-husband take a shower, bring a newspaper to him every day, and have bingo and all kinds of things. The food is really good. There is a barbecue out front. On Sunday, there was a live band and car show, and all the families were invited and got to eat for free. It was really nice.

I am living at Paintbrush and I really like it. It's very well-run, open, and friendly, very attractive, the food and staff are good and there's plenty to do. The big thing here is bingo, but there are also game nights. They also go on shopping trips and go out to restaurants every week. They have a good activity room and a really nice patio and a bistro.
