Customer Reviews

I was greeted upon entering. Seemed to be a clean facility.
Didn’t have handrails in any of the hallways. No doctor on the premise, only a nurse practitioner comes in. Ones own primary physician would have be arranged to come in if needed.

Arcane payment process

Nice clean facility with a caring staff. They refuse to accept electronic transfer of funds from our bank using Zelle or any other modern process. This causes significant delay for the bank to cut a paper check and then put it in the mail. Secure electronic funds transfer would be much more efficient and effective for both the client and Villa Sorrento. We are frustrated with their policy on this issue.

Mom liked the facility and the abundance of social events. My main concern was the caregiver to resident ratio. During the day there are 3 caregivers with 1 medical tech available. At night there are 2 caregivers with 1 medical tech available. There are currently 134 residents.

Tour guide was pleasant and welcoming. First floor brighter and more expensive; second floor stuffy and dark. Not what I was hoping for.

Great Place for my Mom

I love this community for my mother the staff is very supportive and responsive when any issues have come up. They keep it very clean and the garden are is in tip top shape. She loves to play the piano from time to time also. She loves that they let her have her dog here. They take her to her doctor's appointments and that's great help for me. I would recommend this to friends and family definitely getting my value here.

Great Respite care

My mom has been here for respite care and physical therapy while she regains her strength so that she can return to her own home. She has enjoyed joining in the activities with the other residents, going to the dining room and her room is very nice, they have supplied her with everything she needs for her stay here. I would recommend taking a tour here as the community and staff are great.

Villa Sorrento is such a great place! I loved that they have assigned seating in the dining area, and the placemats are laminated photos of the resident who sits there. Allows them to see who is not there, and it also helps the senior to see where their place is. Room size, and layout are fine. Most convenient to doctors, hospitals, and my home. However it has a long waiting list for shared rooms and they can give no idea of time it would take to get a shared room. It comes recommended also from a friend who used to visit a resident there.

Nice Tour!!

I have no complaints about the tour I had taken at this community for my loved one. The staff where on time to our appointment and made sure to answer any questions I had for them in detail. I liked the open floor plan as well as other amenities for the residents. It was just no the right fit for my dad in the end decision but I would recommend it to anyone.

Everyone there was wonderful!

My mother in law was only at Villa Sorrento for 4 days before she had a fall and we realized she needed a higher level of care. We wish she would have been able to go back because the caretakers there were wonderful, especially the care manager. The place was clean and well maintained. There were a few things they could have done differently.

The best value!

We liked the Villa Sorrento but my loved one did not. In my opinion, it was the best value for the cost. It is perfect for people who are on a budget because they included a lot of care into their monthly rate. I would recommend this community.

Very clean and nicely decorated. friendly staff, many activities for residents.

Review of Villa Sorrento - Torrance, CA

Carla was unavailable but the lady that gave me the tour had great energy an d was very outgoing with residents. Place was clean. No kitchenettes in rooms and assigned seating in dining area. While there a musical performance was well attended in rec room.

Villa Sorento is horrible!!!

The caregivers are horrible. I got my mom a place at Villa Sorento. According to the reviews that I read, the caregivers goes out of the way to care for their elderly. This is a fallacy!!! They treated my mom badly!!! Something that I couldn't accept. My mom always complain about how they mostly give her the food that she does not like. My mom doesn't have an Alzheimer's. She is just under the hospice care and all she just want is to stay in an elderly community. I am telling everyone about their service because I would not recommend it for anyone!!!

Happy and Satisfied

I think they go out of their way to really inspect and make sure things are clean and orderly. She is very happy and satisfied with being there. She has found friends and likes all the people. She participates in the activities. She has a balcony, which most places don't.

very good

Mom really liked the food at Villa Sorrento. They had activities there, but she was not really involved in them. I am not sure if they could have done anything more to help get her engaged in them.

Overall the experience was very good.

This facility would probably be OK if it were not for my mom's onset of dementia. I'm afraid the facility is too large, she'd get confused, and not receive the individual attention and level of care she requires.

An Ideal Place for Mom

Mom was at the home for two week respite care while I was out of town. It was her first time in a home and she
resisted the idea at first. She required quite a bit of assistance. She was pleased and had only good things to say about the home and staff. She is now comfortable with the idea of staying there again in the future. My personal experience upon visitiing the home and meeting the staff was very satisfying.

She loves the place.

Everything is fine. She loves the place. It's clean and the staff is friendly. We haven't had any problems at all. She loves the food. We liked the location too, that is really why we chose it.

nice pleasant stay

The place at Villa Sorrento was very nice. Dad was only in there a month and a half, and it was pleasant enough for the duration of his stay. Unfortunately he fell and broke his hip while he was there so is now in the hospital, but we were pleased with what we experienced during the time he was at Villa Sorrento.

Seemed like a nice place!

We toured this community when we were looking into care options for a loved one. Overall I was impressed by what we saw here! It was a nice looking, clean community, and the staff all seemed very friendly! The residents all seemed happy and friendly, and it looked like the place had a good variety of activities to keep everyone entertained.

Great Staff and Director

The staff could not have been more helpful and professional. They made my mom feel right at home. They spent extra time orientating her to the facility and services they offered. They offer a lot of activities every day.

Mom is Safe Here

I think overall it's a little better than average. It's good enough. I don't have any real complaints. They're pretty good. My mom doesn't like the food but I tasted it and, to me, it wasn't all that bad. Mostly she complains about the food. She's just kind of a picky person when it comes to food anyway. For me, I wouldn't recommend the food but I didn't think it was the worst.

They have a bingo game which my mom doesn't go to. They have morning exercises like chair aerobics.. I think that's great. They do little outings but I think they may not have enough transportation. They can't take everybody that wants to go.

For the money and value, I think it's fair. They seem pretty good at watching out for her. If anything happened they call me right away. The main thing is they're watching her to make sure she's okay. Safety is number one so that's why I don't put too much pressure on the food or things like that.

Living Condition for Seniors

Villa Sorrento has dedicated staff members who oversees residents in many areas so that their living condition is comfortable, clean, engaging, and safe. My mother-in-law has been living there since late May of 2013 and I visited her multiple times a week. I observed staff who made her bed, vacuumed her room, cleaned her bathroom while other staff members were busy doing the laundry, or cooking/cleaning at the kitchen area. I was very impressed with care workers who kept track of resident's medicine schedule and they would call the pharmacy for refills. There are staff members who manages social activities -i.e. field trips for picnic or daily walk or to local restaurants, daily chair exercises, special parties and daily bingo games. This facility provides a wide range of services to assist seniors to live in an environment where they do not feel so alone.

Not a bad location, near medical and shopping, only a few miles from Brian/Adora. and pretty plain -- anything but impressive. The rooms were nice enough, but just pretty simple, and not very big, only kitchenettes. Think construction/styling from the 60's or 70's. Two mini vans for transportation; weekly outings, scheduled store runs, etc. Best thing going for it is that it is right around a lot of medical buildings and Torrance Memorial hospital.
