Pacifica Senior Living Lynnwood was very nice. It looked clean too. I liked the way the grounds were kept. I looked at the menu, and it looked excellent. The staff members were very pleasant and very knowledgeable.

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

My parent has been in this location for a while now and I am frustrated that nothing is being done about the employee turnover rate, the lack of training for new caregivers, the lack of trust the employees have in the new Executive Director, and the basic lack of communication between the caregivers and the head office. There are only 6 cottages, so you would think that the communication about residents, or even work orders for the maintenance staff would be impeccable, but they aren’t. Feedback is also not well received and the only way actions are taken is if someone contacts the corporate office, or writes a review. Moving my parent is not an option, so I just hope we can get these issues figured out. My parent enjoys the community and the caregivers. I am willing to work with anyone to help fix these problems. Partnership and open, transparent communication is key.
Provider Response
Please reach out to us when you can so we can address this situation directly. Thank you and have a great day.

Pacifica Senior Living Lynnwood had memory care cottages, but I didn't care for it because they didn't have private showers. Their apartments were like small studio apartments with a community kitchen and no private showers or kitchenettes. I saw the residents sitting around the community table doing bingo. The staff was pleasant, and the marketing gal was great. I was so impressed with her.
Provider Response

Pacifica Senior Living Lynnwood was more assisted living and I didn't care for that too much at all. They give the residents one shower a week and if you want more, you have to pay for them. You have to use the same shower seat as everybody else. The rooms were nice, but the bathrooms had no shower. You have to use a community shower and then you only get one of those a week. You had to pay for anything more. The dining area was OK. They were renovating the place and the one room they had renovated was nice. The staff seemed to be OK. The common rooms were nice.
Provider Response
Pamela, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback about your experience with us. We'd like the opportunity to discuss your review, so if you're willing, please contact our Executive Director.
