The Palo Alto Commons Assisted Living concept is simple. Residents enjoy the comfort of a private apartment surrounded by favorite furnishings and treasures with the warmth and hospitality of the gracious living services available within our residential community. Our trained, friendly staff is always available to lend a hand when needed.We develop a Personalized Care Plan in which needs are carefully assessed to determine the care options that best suit each individual.
