I like the apartments at Fair Oaks by Regency Park better. The way they were laid out or designed had a lot more character. They gave me a cake which turned out to be very nice. The dining room was lovely; it had a ramp for wheelchairs. They had parking facilities.

Fair Oaks by Regency Park was very expensive. It looked like a great big hotel, and it's quite elegant. I went to an open house, and they had wonderful hors d'oeuvre type food. It was all delicious and very beautiful. Everyone I met was very nice. The rooms were very nice, too.

Regency Park was a little hard to find. The entrance was around the corner from another corner. Once I got in there, it was great. The rooms were very nice.

My mother is in Fair Oaks in a one-bedroom unit with a small kitchenette, and it’s excellent. They provided a furnished unit for her. The dining room is a sit-down with a wait staff who do an excellent job of taking care of her. Their activities are really great.

We went to Fair Oaks. The place was lovely and had beautiful rooms, each with a kitchen with granite countertops. Each room has a balcony, and that was very nice. They had a lot of activities. The staff who gave me the tour was wonderful, and when I left, they gave me a cake in a very beautiful box.

Fair Oaks by Regency Park was the place I really wanted my mother to go to because they said they did memory care. I wanted my mother to be there because she would have had a one-bedroom apartment at a very reasonable price, good food, and beautiful surroundings. However, they decided after I went through with them that they wouldn't take my mother because they claimed that she needed more direction. It was an absolutely beautiful place with beautiful apartments and studios. I checked out the one-bedroom for my mother, which I really loved. The lady that gave me the tour was April and was very good, very kind, and very sweet, but it was the medical director that would not allow my mother to come because she figured my mother needed more care than what they were able to provide. I was there for lunch two times, and the food was very good. The staff that worked there seemed to be OK. The dining room was very pretty, and I liked it a lot. They had beautiful rooms for the library, activities, garden room, and outside areas that were very pretty. Anyone who wanted to be in assisted living would do quite well there, and it's very reasonably priced.

We’re pretty happy now where we are at Regency Park - Fair Oaks almost seven years ago. It’s fair. I wouldn’t say it’s outstanding. They've had a lot of changes as far as personnel is concerned, and it has its ups and downs, but as far as cleanliness, it’s very good. The staff is pretty good, but there is a big turnover because they only pay minimum wage. We have a lot of activities. Here on the property, they have poker, bingo, games, and crafts. On Friday, they have a man that comes from the Pasadena College who teaches watercolor arts. Every Thursday, we go to some plays at a theater, to the park, or to the museums. Tuesdays are shopping days when we go to various stores. We have a one-bedroom unit, but it is very adequate and comfortable. The food is like any institutionalized food; you get tired of it, and there's not a lot of change in menu. However, we have a council where we meet once a month and discuss the problems. Then they go back and talk to the chef and the head people, and then they would know what the problems are. The community is plenty adequate.

My Mom, who I adore and would do absolutely anything for, has lived at The Fair Oaks for going on two years now. I must have looked at 10 places and The Fair Oaks was clearly the best. From the top guy, Richard who has always been readily available to speak to and, the few times I have had any concerns, was kind, caring, and attentive, to his second in charge, Susanna, to the entire staff... I am so very pleased with the attention and respect my mom is given. And when she had to stay in the hospital for a week, one of the receptionists, Ruth, came to visit her. How above and beyond and It meant the world to her... And to my wife and I. Listen, we all have our experiences and interpretations of what is good or bad, and no place is perfect. Trust me when I say that there are very few people pickier and more thorough than myself and my wife when it comes to the people we love. Whenever my wife or I had a concern with my mom's care, it was addressed and corrected in a very timely and compassionate fashion, and with no attitude whatsoever. And these were always fine tuning corrections. And now to speak for the general vibe of the place and the residents. My wife and I are also there very often for meals with my mom, amongst other reasons to stop by. So, we have gotten to know many of the other residents. The dining room is always very cheerful and noisy with chatter. Noisy dining room means lots of conversation and lots of conversation means lots of vitality and engagement. That is what The Fair Oaks is all about. I know finding a place we can trust with our elderly loved ones is a daunting and worrisome task and I also know, as I said earlier, that no place is perfect. But the vibe, compassion and caring nature that are Richard and Susanna are without a doubt reflected in the care givers, med techs, restaurants servers, etc. And when any of these virtues faulter, Richard and Susanna have proven to be ready and available to correct it. Bottom line... Great place and well worth sitting down with Richard and Susanna if you are searching for a place for your loved one. You will definitely be glad you did!

We chose Regency Park Fair Oaks for my in-laws, but, my father-in-law passed away, and my mother-in-law needed a memory care facility so we moved her to another facility. However, we were happy with it. It was very nice, lovely, clean, and great facility. They lived there for three weeks. It was very close to a hospital. They had a dog or animals that came in for petting. They had book rooms, cinema, sing-a-long, crafts, painting, bridge, current events, anything you could want.

I lived at Regency Park Fair Oaks for about five years. It was not new and it was not as large as the other facility. It was not as big but it was nicely decorated and kept-up. They redecorated when they built a new part of the building. The place was always clean. They did not have the same menu in a week. The food presentation was not as special compared to others but it was good. We had at least two choice for entrees and a salad bar. It was served in tables with table clothes and napkins.

my grandma lived there until very recently. the place is clean, and very modern without being overwhelming to the residents. there are pictures up of the residents as they were younger that are fun and interesting to look at. The staff is very nice and helpful but not all of them are nurses, most of them are just regular people. I visited every week for close to three years, and my grandma was only ill towards the last 6 months or so. When she was well the staff was very good about staying away and just letting her live her life. She often spoke very well about the food downstairs, which changes daily and has wonderful service. When she was ill the staff was very attentive and would make special meals for her, even in the last days when she was fully dementia and requesting bizarre foods. there are large facilities like a living room kind of where residents can reserve them for parties or family get togethers and we had several family holidays there which were catered by the staff. Top Notch.
