This is a full service nursing facility, not an assisted living facility. Most residents are long term and this will likely be the last facility they will live in. If that is what you need, this place is GREAT!! My mother was here for over 10 years until she recently passed away. She was almost completely paralyzed and could not do anything for herself. The staff and nurses at this facility are very loving and caring.
This facility is in a lovely and quaint residential neighbor hood. The grounds have a large lawn where you can sit under a shaded tree or in the sun. It's 2 blocks from old town Pleasanton which is a step back in time and a great place to take your family member when you visit to get some fresh air, food and a change of scenery. Nice parks within 2 blocks.
If you have someone who is fully ambulatory and energetic who is only looking for short-term rehabilitation (not our situation), I can't comment on how this facility compares to others. If you expect resort-like recreation and food, you will be disappointed. If price is no object for you and you are looking for a 5 star hotel experience, then keep looking. But if you are looking for a place where your family member can live out their last years and have a staff that genuinely cares for it's residents, this is a good choice.
