Memory Care Reviews for Pacifica Senior Living of Vacaville

January 12, 2014

By Art7

I visited this facility

We needed to move my father to Courtside Cottages 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.
