Memory Care Reviews for Courtyard Estates - Pleasant Hill

May 21, 2012

By commercesd

I visited this facility

The Courtyard Estates assisted living facility looked really well-kept from the outside. We were looking for a suitable place for our aunt to live. The grounds featured nice patio areas that also had ample places to host private parties. The main room had a nice, homey living room feel. We could see from the communal areas that many stimulating activities were taking place, occurring, from reading to games and other resident socializing. They host monthly parties for residents at the facility which they encourage friends and family to attend. Events and outings scheduled include visits to restaurants, art museums, the library, local films and theater. The dining areas featured both communal and formal dining. Food choices were plentiful and all looked nutritious and delicious, as well as the regular snacks - which are offered all day and whenever requested. The staff here are attentive and kind. We could see that all of the residents needs are met and that they enjoy living here.
