We chose Deer Park because it was a nice, affordable place. They have a gym, a beautiful movie room, and a dining room with a nice view. Their staff is really friendly and helpful. My mom is very pleased, and we really like this place. They are working on making the food better.

I visited this facility

Deer Park was very nice, and we made a deposit, but they do not have an apartment available yet. The staff was very nice. The apartments were small but nice and better-sized than most places we visited. The food was very good.

I visited this facility

Deer Park Retirement Community looked like an old colonial house with beautiful views and a beautiful, huge yard. Because they’re on a hill, you can’t take walks but their grounds were big enough that they had enough for most people to walk around the yard with the nice view. The food was OK. It had good transportation and was not that expensive, but the people were very snooty; I was put off by that. They have these calendars with activities going on every day. It was a clean operation and smelled good; that’s very important to me.

I visited Deer Park. The people were all very friendly and very helpful. The people living there were fine and invited me to have lunch. They had great food and a nice atmosphere. It looked like a good spot. As a matter of fact, they had a studio which I could probably get into. Talking to some of the people there, they enjoyed the exercise classes and trips to the town, and there were a lot of fun things to do on-site, like games. It had pretty scenery with the mountainside right outside of the main windows.

Deer Park’s management is really involved, and it seem like there are a lot of things for the residents to do. I have only seen one, and it’s very nice and modern. The dining setup is nice. The food has been much better, but they are undergoing transition with regard to the food situation right now. They had a change in hands in the kitchen. They need to improve with the food and the kitchen preparation. Looking at how the meals are structured and prepared, I think that kind of slipped a little bit, and also more fun things to do.

I am/was a resident of this facility

It's been a month since I moved in at Deer Park. I think it's a great place. My room is very spacious and clean, and I have a beautiful view out my windows; it’s very nice. There is at least one thing going on every day. They have a movie theater that shows movies four or five times a week. There are also outings every Wednesday where we get on a bus and go into a city to see a play. Most days, there's about five or six things to do.

We moved my mother to Deer Park from Southern California about a year ago, and we are very pleased with the facility and staff. Her room was completely re-done before she moved in with an all new kitchen and bathroom. We provided the wall paint they applied that matched her decor which helped make it seem more like home. The managers and staff took an immediate interest in her well-being and assisted in making her transition as smooth as possible. She made new friends quickly and gradually began to take part in many of the activities that are provided to keep the residents active. She especially enjoys bridge, bingo and the weekly outings which take them all over the bay area. We frequently visit at meal time and the food is generally above average with multiple choices. Over all we feel that she is safe and secure and well cared for.
