Assisted Living Reviews for Pacifica Senior Living Snohomish

March 18, 2019

By Katherine

I visited this facility

I was impressed with the way Pacifica Senior Living Snohomish had socialization opportunities for the residents. My sister has extreme anxiety and for her to even go to another building would be problematic, but what they have is a pod and there's a dining facility and a great room. In a circle around those are the private rooms. All she would have to do is walk out of her bedroom and she'd be right there among the community. The caregivers have been there for decades and the idea that she would have a continuity of care would be very reassuring for her. The private room was good sized. Everyone was very personable. It was very clean and bright, and the person in-charge was very nice.

Pacifica Senior Living Snohomish was very clean and organized, and the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful about the whole process. They had a whole calendar of events. There are things that happen pretty much every day like crafts for men and women, and things that they can do individually or as a group. They have common areas. The rooms were not spacious enough if I was to move both of my parents. If it was just my mother, it would probably be fine. The lady was friendly and totally somebody I would trust my parents with. She was very caring.

Hello. I am so pleased with the help and service Pacifica is giving my mother, my family and me that I felt that I needed to let you know in writing. I know I have mentioned to you how grateful I am during this difficult time for your help. Although my mother, Lovelle, is now on Hospice, this could not have happened without the guidance and care of the Pacifica staff. My family and I were worried sick about her but we had no idea of what to do — and here is where your caring staff stepped in with kind and gentle help. First of all, I am so grateful to Heather who was so encouraging when Providence Hospice turned us down. She immediately began “plan B” and contacted Evergreen Health Hospice. She even continued to work on the situation throughout the weekend for us. Fortunately, this plan worked out and my mother will be able to have the benefits of extra care during this difficult time. But there are so many wonderful caregivers, too. All the Dogwood aides have been so kind and encouraging. In fact, the Evergreen Hospice nurse was highly complimentary to Sylvia regarding her knowledge and skill level! When I was there yesterday, I was surprised and thrilled to see how many of the staff popped in just to check on her — Jennifer (med tech), Alex (nurse), Nancy (activities director), Dawna (receptionist) and, of course, Kim (aide) pops in whenever she can. There are so many to recognize and I am afraid I may have missed several! I am so appreciative of this wonderful care. Thank you.

Pacifica Senior Living Snohomish was a nice facility and I would recommend it. The reason that we didn't go for it was because of pricing. Other than that, we would've liked to have gone there and use that facility, but the price prohibited us. We just liked it overall, except the price. We liked the location. The only thing that it offers now that we don't have is full-time assistance, and there's is a bit of deduction in lifestyle here. I would recommend it if you could afford it.

Provider Response

Hi Steve, we appreciate your sharing your experience and wish you well in the community that you choose. Please let us know if we can be of assistance to you in the future. We are always more than happy to assist you if anything else comes up.

It was really good, and I’d go there in a heartbeat. The food looked good, the place was very clean, and it was nicely kept. The nurses were pleasant. There’s a lot going on. They have a van for shopping and things like that.

This community was wonderful, and the experience was great. The people and the staff were very nice. The manager was wonderful too. It was clean and organized, and the rooms looked great. We were there when they were eating. There is one lady that I knew, her mother is in there, she had to share things with me, and she was very positive. I would absolutely recommend them.

I visited this facility

It seemed like they were small units with only a couple of residents per building. I think the take away on that is that it seemed very personable. The people were nice, but I just felt the place was really personable. They all seemed very pleasant, and it seemed like they were involved with the resident there. It seemed like a nice place, but it was a little too remote for me, and that was the reason we chose the other place.

Caring106832350, we're disappointed to hear of the negative experience you had at our location.
