I am/was a resident of this facility

I looked at several places, and Waterford Terrace was my choice. I came here, and I have not been sorry. The people are nice, the staff is excellent, the food is superb, and the facilities are good. We're about 3 miles from where my family lives. The activities were very well done; they have a list of 8 or 9 activities published weekly.

I visited this facility

I liked Waterford Terrace. The food was OK, but it was more cafeteria-type food with a not-so-large selection. The layout of the place was very nice. They had a movie theater, a game room, a room for social events, and an exercise room. They had everything that you would want, like a beauty shop. It was a very nice place. The rooms were nice but had a partial kitchen with a hot plate, a little microwave, a counter, and a small refrigerator.

I really liked Waterford Terrace. They just did not have any rooms available. It was not as grand as the two other facilities I visited, but they had caring people, and it was well maintained. It was certainly a consideration for us. The staff and the rooms were wonderful. They seemed to have a nice weekly/daily calendar of activities as well.

Waterford Terrace actually was my favorite place. In regard to the people, they looked so happy, and there were a group of women playing cards. It was independent living, but you could contract in assisted help. It just felt good, everybody seemed happy, and they have clients who have been there for a very long time.

I visited this facility

The rooms were fine, although I really think that the amount they are asking for the studio is a lot of money. They cost too much. I was really surprised. I really liked the staff there. I ate lunch, and it was very good. They go on trips, they have an exercise rooms, and they have a beauty shop. It is very nice. If I had the money, I would go there. I liked the people because they were very nice.

I am a friend or relative of resident

After almost 50 years in the same home, and many heart to heart discussions, it was time for my folks to move into a senior community. They needed more support than living on their own offered. Waterford Terrace in La Mesa impressed us from the moment we turned into the entrance, and my folks felt comfortable at once. It is truly gracious, as the name suggests, and they now call it home. In a nutshell....the grounds are always well maintained and lovely with many trees, shrubs and flowers. The management team is extremely supportive, knowledgeable, and responds quickly to any resident concerns. The staff is incredibly friendly and go out of their way to help the residents. And the wide variety of activities offered, the movie theater, and the fitness center, are second to none. There is something for everyone. My folks have now been living at Waterford for almost a year and tell me often how safe they feel, how pleased they are with their choice, and how much they enjoy the location. Thank you, Waterford Terrace management and staff, for making my folks feel at home from the day they moved in.
