Review of Pacifica

Our dear friend has been in the legacy part of Pacifica for 9 months and we are very pleased with the care given to her. The staff really seem to care about the residents and are very patient and good with them. My only wish would be that there was some level of medical care. We are new to this whole arena and have had to learn the ropes as we go. Pacifica has lived up to what they promised when we were touring and make our decision to place our family member.

Review of Pacifica

This facility is top notch. My mother lives here. It has changed our lives. The staff is warm and friendly and genuinely cares about the well being of the residents. I was finally able to go on vacation after my mom moved into Pacifica because I knew she was being looked after. My mom has made a lot of friends and enjoys the music and activities provided, not to mention the new chef!

Hello, thank you for your kind words and this wonderful review!

The staff at this facility has treated my mom (and me) like family from the first day we came. My mom has a sense of “Safety”, she didn’t have before and when I have to go out of town for any length of time I know she will be ok. The care and communication is great! Come and put my words to truth-bring your loved one in for a despite stay and let the staff show you. come and try them out for yourself. This Pacifica staff is unbeatable!

Love the staff. Love, love [Removed]. Not alone, have friends that is why I like living here.

For the most part it is good facility. We’ve had some issues with [Removed] but every now and then, lost clothing but all in all not so bad in compassion to other facilities my loved has been in.

I like them cooking for me I think my room is nice. Definitely like all the activities: Shopping, bingo, poker, casino is highlight of my life.

I’m happy here. I think I belong in a place this size. I think they are trying hard to keep up with my dietary needs. I like arts and crafts when they have things that are useful to make, wreath, bird house etc. I think the AD is in mind of things like sports and games as opposed to anything creative. I think the place is dirty, flood area needs new carpet. I worry about it because I fall. I like differed maintenance the people. I am concerned about the few that don’t have all the facts but spread gossip. The dining room and food has improved immensely. I live being here. I like the staff.

Hello, thank you for the high star rating! Feel free to reach out to us if you need anything. Have a wonderful day.

When I was here 5 years ago we had less help, less washers and dryers and more got done than what’s happening now. Mother same when I first came here. Issues with getting laundry. Food service has improved but turnover in the staff is too much. The staff now is still very great and superb. Difficult for me because I’m blind. He loves management.

Because they serve such good food and I don’t have to cook myself. Some one comes and changes my sheet and I don’t have clean my house.

Helpful Staff!!

I had recently taken a tour of this community and I have no complaints of how things had went. The staff where on time to our appointment and made sure to answer any questions I had for them in detail. Overall it was a pleasant experience it was just not the right location for us in the end decision.

A Great Move and Mom Likes It

The move has been going great. The community is a great place and my mom likes it too. She got her haircut one time. There are activities for those who want to do it. They also have a smokers spot that is in a small sitting area with a little cover to block the sun.
She is in a shared room that is kind of small but it works for our budget.

Nice size room

This community is very nice, the staff is friendly and attentive. My mom has only been here a short while but she has started to settle in. Her room is very nice and has a balcony. She likes going to the dining room and hasn't had a chance to take part in the activities because of her cast, but she is looking forward to starting once she is out of her cast as she does need the extra help in getting around right now.

Pacifica Senior Living

Local Representative

Thanks again for the recommendation, and have an amazing day!

Very friendly, a bunch of ladies hanging out in the entrance just hanging out (seems like they need a sunny sitting room for these ladies - very friendly tho). Carpet messed up in main hallway, from a plumbing issue. Dining room nice. A little dark but made me think of [Removed] Calendars. One tenent commented she really liked it there and breakfasts were great. Studio apt model was ok, not much of a kitchenette tho, just a sink and a very small fridge - no counter. Nice walkin in shower.
Concerns about budget, if level 2 care, will put him over income.

Older Community

When we toured this community it was very nice we liked it quite a bit. However, even though the community as a whole was nice we didn't like the setup of the floor plan. The staff was nice and helpful.

Very Friendly Staff

We toured 3 facilities in Escondido before choosing Pacifica. There were 3 other family members besides myself touring. We met the tour guide -[Removed], head of the memory unit. She gave us a very complete tour which included the public areas as well as a few apartments. She knew EVERY resident's name and took time to chat with every single one as we passed them in the halls.
Since my mom moved in, we have had some challenges. The one with the menu (mom has Celiac & Diabetes) is one mom needs to adapt to. They do provide some options in gluten free breads and baked goods. The kitchen staff can be a bit abrasive if you show up at closing. The kitchen closes at 6pm and if you show up at 5:50 they let you know they aren't happy. Any other issues that have come up, we have been able to resolve with the appropriate staff.
Mom is happy and making friends quickly. The age range is broad from late 50's to over 100. Since mom falls in the middle, she is happy to have such a diverse crowd.
Some residents have pets living with them. There are cats that "visit" mom's patio which she enjoys. There are a few small dogs as well. The barking can be annoying at times but it isn't prolonged or overly loud.
Overall I would recommend Pacifica Escondido.

Very nice staff. The facility needs a little tender love. The dining room is very nice. They are adding Memory Care, so taking away from the "campus" and places to walk.

Everything Is Going Well

Everything is going well for my father in law at this community. He has caused a little problems, but the staff has a handle on the situations very well. The community is nice looking and clean. They have wonderful staff, they have been great with all the help they give. They do offer great activities. The staff has been encouraging my father in law to try some. He likes the food, and that is good because he's a really picky eater. It has been a good experience and I would recommend this community.

Wonderful choice for assisted living

My mom has been at Pacifica for only one month, but so far we are so thrilled with this choice! The staff are lovely, from the administrators to the food servers. The residents are friendly and active and seem well cared for. My mom tells me constantly how good the food is, and the housekeeping/laundry service is great. Before Pacifica, she was spending all her time in her room. Now, I have trouble calling at a time when I can catch her there. She's enjoying the entertainment regularly, and spends a lot of time walking outdoors. All in all, we LOVE Pacifica!

Thank you SO much for your positive review! We LOVE to see reviews like yours. We are so happy that and your mom are happy.

Exceeding Expectations

Feeling the pressure of time and demand of affordability; the priority of safety and the non-negotiable of quality care, I was not sure we would find a place for my mom that could meet those needs.
I'm overwhelmed with gratitude to say we found just that at Pacifica.
Their responsiveness to my call, the unpressured information and professional assistance they provided allowed for a perfectly timed, incredibly peaceful transition after a life changing stroke/hospitalization/rehab. that left my mom unable to return to her home.
Every person in every position within Pacifica has been pleasant, professional, and over-the-top wonderful. The facility is beautiful, and it's quickly become "home" for my mom.
We couldn't be more pleased, Pacifica has exceeded our expectations. We are so thankful!

All levels, not just independent. Residents ok but not that engaged. Common areas nice but apartment dreary.

Please contact us for more details. [removed]

This facility is the one we have chosen to place my mother-in-law,even though it is located in a part of Escondido that is getting run down. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Even though it was being remodeled it was very clean and smelled nice. The Alcove unit is the one we picked. The shower was the determining feature, open and easily accessible from her wheel-chair. Angelica was very professional and extremely helpful.

Thank you for your review, we are thrilled that you chose our community for your mother-in-law. We appreciate your insight and will share this review with Angelica, we are extremely proud of her professionalism and warm, friendly demeanor. We look forward to seeing you again!

Depressing facility. Price is low and this seems to be a good example of you get what you pay for. Some of the staff we encountered didn't really seem to want to be there. They are doing a remodel, but even the newly remodeled areas looked very "old lady." Pretty grounds with nice trees. Neighborhood was kind of sketchy.

Hello, thank you for your review. We wanted to let you know that our community recently went through an extensive renovation and looks gorgeous. Feel free to see our photos on our website, we are sure you will agree. We are very proud of our warm friendly staff and the activities they provide to their residents. For example, they went to a Padre game a few weeks back, bake desserts and have movie night! They also post many pictures of their weekly activities on the Facebook page.

The facility was nice enough and I really liked the space in the room but they lack in the outside areas and community space. There is one nurse on location but there is limited assistance: ie: cannot give shots, etc. They are going through construction and updating which is nice to see.

Pacifica Senior Living

Thank you for your review, we are sorry to hear that you feel the outside and community spaces are lacking. We have added a vegetable garden and have large open grassy areas to enjoy.
The remodel is complete and we would love to take you on a tour of the updated community. Please contact us at your convenience. [removed]

Happy Mother-in-Law

My mother-in-law is very happy there. She's independent right now. They do meals and housekeeping and all that is very good. The activities are there but I don't know how much she's taking part in them. I think that the cost, for what you get, is very good. They're in a very safe area and they take care of the residents. They check them in and check them out and keep track of them. We're very happy with them. My mother-in-law was not wanting to go, of course, like 95% of people don't want to move but she's happy. The food is good.

Excellent and Friendly!

Excellent! I only have good things to say! Ultimately, I just love the fact that they are bending over backwards to meet the needs of my grandmother. They've made it so easy for us to place her there. It was a tough transition for her. She didn't do in to assited living until she was 97 - she didn't want to lose her independence. They've been trying to make her comfortable and include her. She can't get over how accomodating and friendly the staff is.
