Dear gspitzley, I am sorry you feel our services have declined in any way. The past few months have been such a challenge for our community and many other communities as well. Hiring and retaining staff has been extremely difficult. Staffing shortages have been very common in the hospitality industry since the pandemic. Our first priority has always been that your loved one receives care. Yes, this has meant different faces at times. The upside to this is Silvergate Rancho Bernardo pulled out all the stops to combat the staffing shortage. We have increased starting wages for all care and culinary staff, in addition to bonuses. This strategy has turned out to be successful and we have many new hires and a full culinary team. We have also increased management oversight in our memory care by way of a second full time Director scheduled to start in October. I agree with you, our activity department is amazing and they are all superstars. Thank you for riding out this journey/pandemic with us as it has been a real challenge. I know you will soon feel and see the difference with the staff and additional management we have implemented. I invite you to contact me directly if you have further concerns or comments.
