Our mom needed to go from assisted living to memory care and Pacifica was the obvious choice. From the very beginning, we received authentic care and attention. It is not easy finding the right place, but Pacifica made us feel we found it.

The staff in the houses and administrators are very caring, compassionate and helpful. I feel that my mom's care is of the best available. It has been very hard to see her deteriorate from dementia but Pacifica Senior Living takes such amazing care of her I know it is what is best for her and she is happy. I like the feel of the home atmosphere and they are always doing activities with the residents.

The rooms are small and charming but the cottage format of the facilities makes it incredibly homey.

I like the small house set up, with the rooms surrounding the common areas. I like the outside area.They have daily activities and since the residents are mixed in care levels, even those that cannot participate much seem to have the opportunity to interact with others who have more skills. The staff are nice but the only issue i have had is that there are different people in the house. It may just be that my mom entered during the pandemic so we have not had much time to really get to know who is usually working there.

We appreciate your positive review about your recent experience with us!

My mother has been a resident here for many years now. The staff is kind and caring and attentive to my mothers needs. They ALWAYS contact me immediately if they have to notify me of any changes with my mom. Their staff does not just sit around on their phones when things are slow, they are constantly looking out for the well being of my mom and the other residents and are doing everything they can to keep them safe, secure, and as happy as they can be in their current situations. They handle tough cases with kindness and empathy and this why I'm giving them such a high review here. I interact with the office staff on a regular basis and they are always attentive to my needs and respond very quickly. I also interact with the director regularly and she makes herself available to me at all times with questions I may have. They also have regular ZOOM meetings for all updates during Covid which really helps put our family at ease during this difficult time. I'm thrilled that we have found a place for my mom where the entire staff is efficient and professional and kind and caring at the same time. I would Highly recommend this care facility to any family member that is suffering with Alzheimer's or Dementia.

My father has been in Pacifica Senior Living in Vacaville for about 6 months now and I am very pleased with his time / care there. Because of all of the change he’s been through recently, I was worried about him slowing down, but I’ll visit at random times and I have loved seeing my dad playing bingo and volleyball with the other residents. It’s hard to trust anyone with caring for your parent or loved one anywhere, but I really appreciate how my father is taken care of there. Thank you Pacifica!

Total lack of communication between the family's concerns with the management. They do not respond to your calls or concerns.A huge disappointment. The caregivers are good, sometimes GREAT. The rooms are clean and new, the courtyard and the cottage style of living is like home.

Provider Response

We'd like the opportunity to discuss your review, so if you're willing, please contact our Executive Director. We hope to hear from you soon.

Pacifica of Vacaville is very nice, and I like the cottage house style setting. Everything was very new and the upkeep director was very friendly and knowledgeable. They were doing bingo one time when we were there. They have a very large patio and walkways for the residents to garden and visit with family.

The care givers and staff are very professional. and provide loving care to residents. Highly recommend this facility based on almost daily visits to a family member for more that two years. Josephine on the office staff provided outstanding assistance on solving problems.

Pacifica Senior Living of Vacaville is very clean, excellent, and has great help. I'm very satisfied. They have individual homes around a courtyard. It?s a locked facility with a kitchen and rec room in each home. My husband likes the food even though he's a cook and is picky. The staff is very efficient and caring. I'd highly recommend it to anyone with dementia or Alzheimer's.

Provider Response

I visited this facility

It is fine. They have different cottages with up to 15 residents in each one where they try to put people together who need the same level of care. They also have single rooms and shared rooms. Mom is in a shared room with a sink and two closets. The bathrooms are community and located down the hallway. The staff seems fine, but there are more men than I'm used to. It's cleaner and smells better than where Mom used to live. Mom's hygiene is better at this place.

I visited this facility

I liked it, but it was maybe 30 minutes away. The staff set aside time to sit down with me, go over my husband’s situation, and tell me what was available, and I appreciated that. What stands out is that they seemed adequately staffed for the number of patients and for the type of patients. These are all patients who have dementia so they need 24-hour care. The rooms were nice. It was an older building but still very nice and quite homey. They had their own furniture, a lot of pillows, and a lot of blankets. The dining room was very good. There was somebody who was always there either reading or playing music. I’d say it was excellent.

Thank you

I visited this facility

Courtside Cottages was an excellent facility but it was way more expensive than I could ever afford for my mother. The staff was wonderful. They were very helpful and very nice. My dad really liked it there. The problem was he couldn't go there and stay with my mother, because he wasn't diagnosed with Alzheimer's, so they couldn't take him in. They have different cottages and they all open to this big open courtyard in the middle. The cottages would run from those that were higher functioning to those where they couldn't function any longer. So you move from cottage to cottage as your disease progresses. That was kind of cool. In every cottage, it was just like a big house where they had a kitchen, a TV room and other facilities and their own staff. It was very good. This facility did have planned activities for their residents. They let them get in and help cook, which my mother would have loved at that time. They have a lot to participate in. They would bring people in and they have a van where they take some of the higher functioning people to places. If you have the money, this community is well worth it.

Thank you for your review.

We needed to move my father because he was wandering around the previous facility that he was in. I have eaten there twice and it's really good. Each cottage has its own bedroom. Some of them have two bedrooms and one room that's just private room and we got the private room. I like the people because they are really friendly. The place is more of a homey atmosphere and that's what my dad likes. They give a monthly calendar with all of the trips that they are going.
