Assisted Living Reviews for Mercy Retirement & Care Center

I visited this facility

I was thoroughly impressed by Mercy. Both the residents and staff members alike radiate an attitude unlike any other. Not only were all the staff members friendly, they all seemed genuinely interested in what they were doing. It seemed like they wanted to be there and didn't regard it as just another dead-end job. The office staff were funny and cheerful, and yet quite capable of answering questions regarding finances, visitations, extra-curricular activities, educational opportunities, etc. There were plenty of recreation opportunities for residents, as well as a thoroughly-stocked library, a dining hall capable of seating several hundred at a time, and even a therapy dog running around brightening people's days. Overall, I have to say I was most impressed by the residents, who were genuinely happy to be there. Everyone that I met had nothing but positive things to say, and all recommended Mercy. Mercy even has a smart "run away" system that uses an RFID bracelet to disable elevator access for patients with amnesia or other degenerative conditions that may cause them to try and "walk out" of the facility. I have nothing but good things to say about Mercy and highly encourage anyone looking for a long-term assisted living facility to contact them and take a tour. You won't be sorry that you did.

I am a friend or relative of resident

I prefer more outdoor area and a protestant sponsor.

Mercy Retirement & Care Center is connected to the Catholic church. It offers assisted living and skilled nursing--and I know it because I referred a patient there from the hospital where I work. I've also visited it. It's an older building, well kept up. The rooms are very nice--private--and there are different floor plans to choose from. And it's centrally located in a safe part of Oakland, close to shops and restaurants, with easy access to public transportation. There's 24-hour care even in assisted living, and the staff is very welcoming and friendly. They're also well-trained. They have ongoing lectures, training, workshops. They have all types of activities: sing-alongs, Catholic mass, group trivia, art, crossword puzzles, exercise class. And the food is good--three balanced meals a day prepared by a licensed chef.
