Alma Via offers assisted living and memory care. I know it well; I've visited it, referred clients there, and have had personal friends who have lived there. The setting is lovely. It's near St. Thomas More Church, and the neighborhood is pleasant--with lots of trees and a walking path. But it's in the fog belt, so there's not much sun. Bus transportation can be a problem, but there's easy access by car. Rooms vary is size from large to small. And the facility itself is new, modern, well kept. It's two stories and on the medium- to large size. The direct care staff is well trained, attentive to residents, skilled in elder issues. They really make an effort to get residents to make friends and socialize. And they're very responsive to residents' needs. They do a good job with memory care, too. They have two programs--one geared more to early stage and a more structured program for later stage. The food is very good--and I'm a harsh food critic. Lots of fresh ingredients, good menu choices, and responsive to diet issues. I'd give it a B+. They also have a wonderful calendar of social events and activities: Bridge groups, current events discussions, music, outings to events like a day at the museum. It's a Catholic community, so there's lots of interaction with the church, as well.

This facility is right next to a church. The neighborhood isn't great "“ it's not too close to shopping. It's in a more private neighborhood and a bit isolated. The grounds of the facility are very nice. It's a very beautiful place inside. They have patios and walking paths outside. They have assisted living and memory care, and the memory care area is a little more claustrophobic. There is very little room for someone in a memory care unit to walk and it's too bad. The living room and dining room are very large and beautiful. I only saw the memory care rooms and I thought they were small. I didn't see the assisted living rooms. The food there is very good and nutritious. The presentation is attractive and nice. The staff seems really nice, but I didn't have that much interaction with them. They seem to be nice and professional though. There are lots of activities at this facility. I didn't look closely, but there was a whole board of planned activities.
