Overview

Care Types: Assisted Living

They say you can’t judge a book by its cover, and the same maxim holds true for California Villa Retirement Hotel. The outside shows signs of age, but the interior and care services are top-notch. This facility is home to a contented bunch of independent and assisted living residents, some of whom have Alzheimer’s. An affiliated skilled nursing facility sits adjacent. During our tour, staff members appeared professional and accommodating, and they treated residents with kindness and consideration. At one point, a visiting family member approached the administrator to request a chair for her mother’s room. She received immediate attention. Rooms have either tile floors or carpet, and some are private. The facility can provide furniture, but recommends residents personalize their space with belongings. The wallpaper is a little different in every room—a good foundation for creating a unique space.

Artificial plants and flowers punctuate the lobby, where a menu hangs listing all the daily food choices. If residents aren’t thrilled with the selections offered, they can request an alternative up to two hours before each meal. The Fireside Room provides a soothing spot to unwind in front of the fireplace. An adjacent room features a big-screen TV and library. Small seating nooks along the hallways provide plenty of space to kick back with a book. The assisted living unit has its own large, bright dining room. The dementia units, one for mild cases and a second for more advanced forms are secure. Each contains a small room for meals and activities. Residents without dementia utilize a second-floor activity room. With art projects, an activity board and colorful decorations, the room makes for a fun spot to be creative. Wheelchairs and walkers don’t seem to deter residents from active involvement in the community. Friday night movie outings and weekly current events discussions are stimulating and enjoyable. We were delighted to observe one of many ice cream socials for the entire community, advertised with the slogan, “Be there or be square!”
