Assisted Living Reviews for Cogir of Vacaville Senior Living

Our mother lived there until Feb. 2020. She was there for 4 years, and at 97 she was still doing well. Cogir worked with our family to keep her well cared for and independent for as long as humanly possible! We appreciate the very safe and very healthy home she had here and the kind care she received!!!

I lived at Cogir for one year. The staff was very kind and attentive to my needs. My apartment was very clean, spacious, and had a lot of storage. The outdoor area was well maintained and very beautiful. The residents are all very welcoming and friendly.

If you love your family member keep looking. Here are some of the issues in less than two months. *First night in respite care, as they sat my mom on bed, it collapsed. They hadn't connected the frame. *They never cleaned the patio--so many spider webs, she had large spider in bed. *Employee did not close catheter bag, and it leaked all over carpet all night. They had nothing to help absorb it and had housekeeping vacuum. Odor was terrible *after complaints they shampooed carpet making it so wet, she slipped. *final straw was a cockroach in her ear. When one employee went to take picture of it another stopped her. What are they hiding?

Brookdale Vacaville Leisure Town is where we are hoping to go. The staff was wonderful and the lady from marketing was the best. She calls me usually once a week to see how my husband is. It's affordable for us. The apartments were very nice, different sizes, very clean, and well kept. They offer rides to doctors' appointments and the usual shopping. The food was very good.

Brookdale Vacaville Leisure Town was alright. They were friendly enough and tried to show me everything that I wanted to see, but I just thought that the staff where I am now is friendlier and more helpful. The residents there go on trips once in a while, and they also have a bus.

My tour of Brookdale of Vacaville was really good. The only drawback was that it was a lot more congested in that area. There wasn't a quiet, relaxed feeling about it, and we are trying to find something in a somewhat quaint neighborhood. I like the apartments and the food. They had a nice outdoor courtyard. We had a good lunch, and there was a selection from the menus. They had a lot of different types of activities going on. There were a lot of amenities nearby for shopping and things like that as well.

I really like the size of the rooms at Brookdale in Vacaville California and I also like the people. The staff was friendly. I like the idea that they had dining services from 7Am to 7PM so to they weren’t set to a certain schedule, they have flexibility. I also liked that if they didn’t want to go to the dining room they could have food to their room as well. I didn’t have the opportunity to eat there but I saw what’s on the menu. They have activities and they also provide transportation to take you to events to the community. They were really good. They even came out and talk to my mother at the hospital before she was discharged. They followed up with me and they even talk to me. It was really good and very nice place.

I was able to visit Brookdale Vacaville Leisure Town. It was a very nice place, although it was expensive, especially with yearly increases.

The people at Brookdale Vacaville were very nice. They keep calling me and following up, and so I've been very pleased. One of the things that I liked was the patio or the deck. I prefer a ground floor, but the deck was upstairs. I've been to another one here in Vacaville that does not have that even though it's newer. I like having an outside space. The size of the room was good. Because it’s an older property, some of the bathrooms had a cut out tub rather than a roll-in shower, so that would be sort of an issue for us if we go and need to have the roll-in shower. The people were very friendly, very helpful, and seemed to be kind.

We put my father in Brookdale Vacaville Leisure Town for about a month and a half now. They make a lot of mistakes, but I think that is just human nature. He complains a lot about the food not being what he ordered. They keep delivering the wrong foods. He had to send it back and wait longer for the correct meal to come. He has an apartment, and we had a lot of problems with it too. The air conditioner was completely broken when we moved in. There were cockroaches coming out of the air conditioner and spiders all over the place. They did come in and treat it, but we should not have had to deal with it in the first place.

Emeritus was one of the places that we saw and approved of so far. The senior living arrangement was well thought out. The apartments had one or two bedrooms with nice floor plans. The grounds were very appealing. You had a feel of being rural even though you were in the city. They kept the ground very green. I also enjoyed the activities that they had for the seniors there. They presented a calendar of daily activities. I would recommend them. The staff was very welcoming.

My mom was at Emeritus at Leisure Town before. I liked it because they had a lot of activities, treated everybody really nicely, and it was clean and neat. In this particular one, you own your own home-like duplex, and then you could go into assisted living from there. They were wonderful, understanding, great cooks, and everybody helped all the time. The facility's swimming pool was neat and clean. They make sure that everybody who goes in there doesn't have any open sores.

I like Merrill Gardens a lot. I like that all the rooms had at least small patios. Even the studio apartments had small patios, which would help because mostly I like the outdoor space. I also like the way the dining room was set up. The facility was a tiny bit less expensive but then they have what they call an association fee and that was a big wallop - that's a big money! When they take your application, you have to come up with that amount of money, plus the first and last months' rents, so overall, it was expensive to move in there. The staff was not as well organized as the one in Davis. It was a very busy facility and there were a lot of people doing things. However, I just felt like maybe there weren't enough people in the front office and that's just the impression I got. In terms of activities, in one area, they had games like bingo, etc., and then in the lobby area, there was a pianist and there residents sitting around in a sing-a-long. They also have a bus for their residents going someplace.

Brookdale Vacaville is a great, wonderful place that's perfect for my dad. The staff seems great. He goes to eat every day, which is great, and walks around the place. He loves his room, which has an awesome view of the golf course. I wish they had reached out to him more and took it upon themselves to make sure he was shown around and follow through on their maintenance. They said they would repair some things and they have not. The staff is very welcoming.

I like that Emeritus has a campus-like setting and has a beautiful courtyard. I sampled a meal there, I liked the food as well as the snacks. They were not as expensive as the referrals I had here for Oakland and Burley. I only met with one of the directors who showed me around, so I didn’t get to see a lot of the staff. It’s a convenient location to me -- less than 5 minutes away -- and they gave me some reassurances that if it’s something the staff couldn’t handle I’m less than 5 minutes away from professional help. They showed me a calendar of the activities, the type of activities they have was for a different generation, most of the residents there are much older than I am. This area is for people over 55. They have balconies, patios, and I can walk through the community. If I want to go out of the room but not far, I can sit out at the patio or the deck. They allow pets which is a good thing, and some of the residents there have dogs they’re willing to share with other people.

Merrill Gardens is an independent living. My dad has dementia so we decided to transfer him to another facility that is more secure, but the facility is great. I ate there a couple of times with my dad and the food was fantastic. The people were really nice. My dad's room was always clean. I think they clean the rooms once a week. He can wash his own clothes, but they would wash his sheets and beddings.

My Mom just moved in here and she is enjoying all of the activities and the people she is around. There are a few issues with repairs getting done in a timely fashion, but the apartment itself is roomy (2 bedrooms) and has a small kitchen that my Mom enjoys.
