Assisted Living Reviews for Pacifica Senior Living Skylyn

I visited this facility

I didn't like Pacifica Senior Living Skylyn. It was nice but a little dirty. The girl who we met was not really prepared, even though we had an appointment. It was like a recorded speech, so it didn't seem like she was interested in finding out what I liked or what I was looking for. The rooms were a good size, but I didn’t see a lot of interaction. It was pretty empty in the hallways and sitting areas. They were nice, but the base boards were dirty, and the staff didn’t seem to be very friendly. I did like the fact that you had a little balcony to go out on, which was nice.

I don't have any complaints about Pacifica. It was an older building but quiet and well taken care of. They always try to help me.

We chose this community for my mom, and she's very happy there. She loves the food, and she comments that she's going to get fat. She's on cloud nine ever since she moved there. It's clean and smells good when you would go in there. They have church, a group room, a beauty salon, common areas where they can watch TV, and plenty of room for residents to walk the hallways and congregate. The staff is resourceful.

Provider Response

Thanks Tiffany for your detailed 4 star review and we look forward to seeing you around the community. We appreciate you sharing your comments! You really made our day today.

I visited this facility

I liked it just fine. I found the assisted living apartments lovely and well-appointed. The staff was extremely nice and friendly. It seemed like a fine facility. They had a beautiful library. They had a very pretty non-denominational chapel on the premises. The dining facilities were very nice. I liked that there were separate dining areas for the nursing facility and assisted living facility. That was nice. They provided transportation if you needed to go outside the compound. They had a gym, so I'm sure they had exercise programs. It was somewhat homey for an institution. It definitely looked like mass housing. There were three stories, so there were elevators involved. Not everyone was on the ground floor. It wasn't like going into a hospital. Each department seemed to have personal touches, even outside the doors in the hallways.

Provider Response

Thanks for your detailed review. We strive to provide excellent care and service to our residents and their families at Pacifica Senior Living Skylyn.

I visited this facility

It was very nice and clean. They were very friendly, and the people seemed to be happy. I noticed a lot of people walking around, and there were a lot of activities going on. We encountered a lot of people in the hallways going to and fro. They seemed to be a vibrant place. I have eaten there, and the food was good. The dining room seems fine. I thought it was overall very nice. I know there was a keypad for the residents to come in after hours; we went in the front doors, and there was someone waiting there for us.

I enjoyed the visit, and it probably is the one that we will go to. The room is wonderful. It is spacious and clean, and the people there were so very nice. They were so willing to help. I have not been able to try their food, but I will be going back for a second visit, and maybe this time I will be able to try the food.

I visited this facility

I visited and it felt a little cramped. The staff who assisted me was very nice, and she was perfect for that role. She was an excellent conversationalist and a good listener. She picked up on everything that I said and had a way of expanding on it or drawing me out more by using what I said. She was a true professional. Overall, I was impressed with her. I saw people sitting around and talking. The facility was built very much like a residence. The rooms that I saw were nicely arranged rooms. There were rooms that people had been allowed to bring their own furnishings into, which made it homey.

Provider Response

MY HUSBAND AND I VISITED THIS FACILITY TO SEE IF WE THOUGHT HIS PARENTS WOULD LIKE IT. WE HAD HEARD SOME NEGATIVE THINGS, AND SAW NONE THAT HAD BEEN MENTIONED. THE STAFF WAS REALLY HELPFUL, CHEERFUL, AND CARRIED ON CONVERSATIONS WITH THE TENANTS. THE TENANTS ALL SEEMED HAPPY AND CONTENT. SEVERAL WERE WALKING AROUND WITH FRIENDS, OTHERS WERE SITTING IN GROUPS LAUGHING AND TELLING STORIES OF THE OLD DAYS. I DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING TO CONCERN ME. THE APARTMENTS WERE CLEAN, THE RESIDENTS WERE CLEAN AS WELL. I DIDN'T SMELL ANYTHING STINKY. I DID SEE SOME STAINS ON THE HALLWAY CARPET AND SOME ON THE CEILING TILES. THE GROUNDS WERE CLEAN AND THE WALK WAYS WERE CLEAR. I DO HOPE HIS PARENTS DECIDE TO JOIN THE ONES HERE. THE ACTIVITIES, THE MEAL PLANS, REALLY EXCITED ABOUT ALL THAT THEY WILL HAVE TO DO HERE TO KEEP THEM BUSY AND MOVING.

Independent Living Reviews for Pacifica Senior Living Skylyn

August 10, 2018

By Leslie

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

My mom was in independent living at Pacifica Senior Living Skylyn. The reason we took her out was because they're supposed to have someone there 24 hours a day who could assist them. My mom got locked out of her apartment for six hours. Another lady was locked out all night because nobody came to open the apartment to let her back in. They’re supposed to get lunch and supper, a noon meal, and an evening meal, and several times my mom went up there to get her meal but they ran out of food and they offered her a peanut butter and jelly sandwich instead. I was there twice when they had done that. I didn't pay $1,900.95 a month for my mom to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The staff was in front of her and they gave them the plates and gave them the food, and they told Mom they didn't have enough for her and she'd have to have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. To me, the residents should be fed before the staff is fed. The staff is not paying $2,000 a month to be fed. The facility is clean and nice, but there were changing things when Mom was there. They used to get maid service once a week, but they were talking about doing away with that. They'd have to clean their own rooms or they'd have to pay to have someone come in and clean their rooms. It's $10 an hour for a minimum of three hours to assist them if they need help with cleaning their apartment. If they take them on drives, it's a $15 an hour fee and $0.10 a mile for them to drive them anywhere. They used to have buses that would take them to Walmart and out to eat, but they stopped that, so a lot of the amenities that they had are no longer available. They no longer check the independent residents. They used to hang a ring on their door and if their door ring didn't move by 10:00, a staff member would go down, open the door and check on the independent person, but they no longer do that. The staff was nice though. They have the same meal repeated every week and there was no variety. The facility was beautiful and absolutely gorgeous.

Leslie, we regret to hear that you had a negative experience with us, but would appreciate the chance to turn your experience around.

I visited this facility

It is a non-smoking facility. So far, the staff has been OK. The rooms look like studio apartments. It looks more like a hotel. They have karaoke, which I think is fun. They also do arts and crafts. It is a very nice place. I like the fact that they have assisted living as well as independent living. My mom will be on the independent side. We are moving her there this weekend.

Thank you for letting us know about your visit.
