I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

A close relative has lived at this facility for several months now and she is quite settled and comfortable. She enjoys good food, clean surroundings, and good care.

I walked up to the building and the residents were on the front porch with nice light music and a young lady passing out lemonade. Inside, there were happy smiling residents, staff every where and interacting with the residents. I had lunch that day with my friend and the food was fantastic. The new Executive Dir. introduced herself, and she was very kind and personable. I over heard a resident telling her, that she was doing a good job and they could see the difference. I don't really take the time to write a review, but I just had to share my experience with Sun City Senior Living. My friend has been there for over 3 years, and is just as happy as can be. Great Place...

Pacifica Senior Living Sun City was very nice. What I didn’t like was the small size of the microwave and the refrigerator that they had. You couldn’t really fit a lot in. As for the microwave, I would say about the only thing you could do is put a small container or a cup in there to heat stuff up. It was really tiny. It was the only place where I did see a lot of activity. They had a very active group in crafts. The residents all seemed congenial. It’s a really nice atmosphere.

A family member is currently at Pacifica Senior Living Sun City. What I like about it is that they have a lot of open areas where people could go outside and get cool breezes to breath fresh air. The comfort of their gathering areas inside was exceptional. Their meals were good. The staff is very good as well. They do different activities, like playing bingo every day, art classes, jigsaw puzzles, and a lot of entertainers who come in to entertain the residents.

Provider Response

Hi Donald~ thank you for your positive review. We are so happy to hear that you are happy with our community. We appreciate you sharing and look forward to seeing you again soon!

The staff of Pacifica Senior Living was very caring. It was expensive, though, so I couldn’t afford it. The community was extremely nice. The people were nice, ready to show me around, and extremely helpful. They have been telling me what has been going on. They showed me the spotless dining room where they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They had pet therapy, brain games, arts and crafts, bingo, and a walking club. They had everything, so that was very nice.

Provider Response

It was a very rushed situation. We had to do something quickly, so we found Pacifica in Sun City. I’m not sure if it’s the final place, but it’s where my mother is right now, and they’ve been very good and helpful. Initially, when I was in a bind to find someplace, I went to them and they reached out and helped me through a not-so-pleasant process of getting her from the hospital into a facility, so they have been very helpful. It’s very nice and it looks freshly remodeled. The surroundings are nice, and they have courtyards. My mother is in memory care, so it’s just a studio, but it’s roomy, adequate, and nice. They have quite a few activities. On Sundays, they have one or two worship possibilities, and entertainers, singers, and exercises for the seniors. I think they have a truly well-rounded program.

Provider Response

Thank you for your positive review! We are very proud of our community and the exceptional level of care we provide. We do have a great staff and we are glad that we were able to be with you through the difficult transition with your mother. We are here to help and know how difficult the process can be.

I visited this facility

I went to Sun City Senior Living (Pacifica Senior Living Sun City). They gave me the walk through and some materials to look because that was my first walk through to get an idea of the costs of things around and to see what the best facility would be for my dad. The rooms were very nice and had various types. I was able to see everything in the facility including the common areas, the recreation areas and things like that. I saw their activities calendar and it looked like they had something almost every day, like arts and arts and things like that. With the holiday season coming up, they were all centered on Christmas. The dining area looked clean. I liked that it was not a huge place, but it had all the essential care available that my father could need. Unfortunately, he did not live long enough to do it.

Provider Response

Hi Robert, thank you for your review. We appreciated you taking the time to leave a review. We send our belated condolences on the passing of your father, we are so sorry. We thank you for your consideration.

I visited this facility

I visited this facility today with my husband. We are looking to place my Mom in an assisted living facility. I was amazed at how comfortable the entire living facility is and how the residence are all so happy. When you open the door to go in its like a ray of sunshine so clean and spacious and well lite, everyone seemed so happy. I realize you can't please everyone but I really don't know what else could be done to try to please all. I did not see one resident that appeared unhappy. The smell of the facility is awesome. No bad odors at all. To me this is another important point no one wants to stay where there is a nasty odor. So far this is the place for my Mom working out the details will take a little time but getting her into this facility will be such a relief for our family. People all assisted living and memory care is expensive and I find this one to be right in line with all the others I have looked into. By the way Donna the director is so sweet and helpful nothing bad to say about her. I watched her greet residents as she was giving us the tour never missing one. Just a quick hello how are you doing sort of thing she didn't have to do that as she was giving us a tour but she cares so much for these people and it shows.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for your positive review! We are very proud of our community and memory care program. We have a great staff and genuinely care for all our residents. We have a fantastic Executive Director who fosters an atmosphere of acceptance and warmth. She and the outstanding staff genuinely care for all our residents, and their families.

I am a friend or relative of resident

From the moment I walked in the door with my mom and my husband, I was impressed! There was an "at home" feeling, along with seeing residents sitting out on the front porch, and in the main entry to the building. We were taken on a tour of the community, and introduced to the director of the community, nursing and even the maintenance manager. One thing that my husband and I were impressed with was we were encouraged to sit and talk to the current residents, and the feedback we got was what we needed to hear. You can't make everyone happy, but the large majority of them loved living here. Even one resident came back from another location in Sun City because she loved it here and felt it was her home. We placed mom here, and I couldn't be happier with the choice. Coming from a medical family background, I'm quite happy that we get contacted on a regular basis about anything that might come up with mom and her medical care. I'm there several times a week, and her room and bathroom are always clean, and I have to admit, I will join mom for meals now and then, and have been quite impressed. She's been there for quite some time now, and I'm still just as happy as I was back when we first brought her here. The only thing I would recommend as a change, is some of the happy hour entertainment on Friday's needs to go (get better groups). They had a great group there this past Friday, and it was fun to see the residents up and dancing! No matter what my viewpoint, the residents seem to love their happy hour time, and I never see less than 30 people there. I'd like to commend the staff for making this feel like home to my mom!

The rooms at Sun City looked very clean and very livable. They would go to Walmart, they go out to eat, and if you are able, they have everything like you can go to baseball games and stuff. They did offer, but we didn't eat there, and they showed us the menu. It was a good menu, and I think they had ehat was going to be served up for either three days or five days.

I placed my mother here in Feb. and moved her out in March. I wish I had checkd the reviews before We paid out all of the money for two months and Pacifica is still taking. The staff is very lazy and will help if someone is watching. Her room was not clean and the bathroom was worse. I was told if I wanted extra cleaning like taking the trash out , changing the sheets were could pay extra. I find she was given incorrect medication which was confirmed by her doctor. Anyone wanting to find a place safe and clean for a loved one DON.'T place them in this facility.

Provider Response

Debra1971, it's upsetting to hear that you did not receive the top-notch service we strive to provide.

The rooms in Sun City Senior Living are not as updated. Everything else was fine. The staff was good. I did not go as far as eat there or doing anything like that, but everything else was good. I don't have a list of the activities, but they do have lots of activities. The room is typical and average in size. Everything else was good.

Thank you for letting us know about your visit we are now under new ownership and invite you back to see the Pacifica difference!

My mother-in-law is living in Sun City Senior Living. It is clean and nice. She's happy and everything she needs is there. She has a typical apartment with a couple of bedrooms, a living room, a bathroom and it's really nice. I am very happy with what she has.

Sun City had individual houses and they had apartment buildings, but they were very spread out. We didn't go to the assisted living and the hospital. However, one of my friends had stayed in both of them, and she received superior care. We toured everything, and they were very nice. The houses were spacious. They had two bedrooms with a den, a living room, a dining room, and a kitchen, plus your own garage. It is very nice and well-kept.

Provider Response

Hi, thank you for taking the time to share your review, we are now under new management and invite you back for a tour. Please feel free to contact with any and all questions. We hope you have a wonderful day and we hope to see you at one of our upcoming activities!

It was nice. They had a swimming pool. The staff was fine but for us Sun City was too crowded. I would recommend them to others.

I visited this facility

My mother moved into the facility in December, since that time I have noticed a decline in the caring nature of the employees. There seems to be a problem ordering the proper amount of food for the residents. Such as, running out of orange juice, milk and jelly all in one day! I understand this once in awhile but it seems there are issues daily with "we don't have any" Mother needed ice for a bruise on her arm and was told the kitchen was closed and couldn't get any for her......really? How about applesauce for her to take her medications so she doesn't choke.....sorry, we don't have any. The elderly are picky eaters but one (1) chicken wing on a plate does not constitute a meal, there was nothing else on the plate. Really....for what it cost to live there I expect better. We were not told upon moving her in that she would only get two (2) showers per week, unless we paid for more.....really? How many of us are satisfied with 2 showers a week? I keep hoping for some good things to happen soon.
