Vista Gardens has been an amazing place for my mom [name removed]. Thank you all.M

Vista Gardens has been wonderful for my mom [name removed] who moved out here from Upstate New York, Jamestown.
She had lived in her home for 74 years making the move a big one.
I can not thank the Vista Gardens staff and her amazing room mate [name removed], for welcoming her with open loving arms. My mom is so happy and the adjustment was so smooth. [name removed], [name removed] and [name removed], [name removed] and [name removed], [name removed] and all the care staff are the nicest people you have ever met.
The feel at Vista Gardens is a family feeling with a lot of kindness.
Keep up the great work.

I thought Vista Gardens was wonderful, definitely worth a five-star. The community is beautiful, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Really, their only downsides are that they are quite expensive, and that they do not offer respite care.

Do not recommend this place!! If you use prepared to visit every day and especially at night!! Wouldn't let my family member stay here!

Touring and Seeing Choices

On my tour I had with the community, I didn't care for it the place. I also had to consider that they were more expensive and far away. It was not a good fit for my mom.

Amazing Blessing to our family and a true DIAMOND

Hello I would like to give one of the my most sincere , honest and best shout outs and reviews I have ever done to a truly fantastic place that I was so Blessed to move my mom to Vista Gardens in Vista Ca. . . .This place is so very Gorgeous with nice sized rooms and on my mom’s room a Jack and Jill bathroom ,It is very clean, Very Friendly , and has a great staff , and is truly just so very encouraging and uplifting as hard as it is on the family to place a loved one in a facility .It has a gorgeous patio for my mom and everyone to enjoy the outside and the sun whenever she wants that we were blessed to have an awesome BBQ on yesterday for Memorial day . I honestly cannot say enough though about the whole staff here, [Removed] and all the nurses and caregivers, Food workers , and [Removed] in maintenance and so many more .. Everyone here are truly some of the nicest staff I have found anywhere that make you feel loved and reassured that your loved one will be loved and cared for just like family. I have seen and talked to many many places throughout the North county San Diego area and this is a true diamond) mom is only 69 but has a Disabling Disease called Lymphedema in both her legs that has also made her very anxious, depressed, and embarrassed of her legs .It has been truly hard finding anyone who would help take on this challenge with her legs. It is truly one of the hardest things as her son I have ever had to deal with in life next to the death of my father .Please take my word when I say Look no further and take a tour at Vista Gardens if it is that time in life for a loved one. The whole staff is so very caring and loving. Mom was moved in last Friday 5/26/17..And I can not lie This has truly been a hard transition for both the family and the mom to accept but everyone here is so caring and loving and treats us all like family. I pray my mom calms down and comes out of her shell and truly gets to be a part of this whole family here with so many friends around her that will not judge her. I am not one to ever really do reviews but I felt the need to do this one for sure as everyone here has gone above and beyond to help my mom get settled in And I am just so Very Thankful.. One of the best parts of Vista Gardens other than just the great care and attention, is the many activities, awesome food and so much more is the LOVING environment my mom is receiving here.. I feel my mom will love it here and she says she does .I look forward to seeing Vista Gardens become part of our Family. I am excited to continue to see the fantastic care and love Vista Gardens has to offer to all its residents but most of all for my beautiful mom and also to finally get to see my mom have a Happy, Healthy, Active, and Safe Life again. With a quality of life that not many places can offer with her leg condition …. Vista Gardens is a 5 star all the way... I can not say enough GREAT things about them and look forward to years ahead here with my mom.. Thank you To the Whole Staff at Vista Gardens Thank you !!!!

Tour for care

We toured this community for the care for my mom and dad. We found the staff to be attentive and we able to answer the questions that we had. The community was nice and clean and they offered a good variery of meals. Activiites are offered to the residents that want to participate. We would suggest that families tour this communty.

A loved ones care

This was a nice place for my husband. He was there for a day. He liked that they had activities out of the community. The food was good and he was happy there. The drive was very far. The community is nice and clean I recommend the good care to other families here for a loved one.

A Nice Community for My Father and His Needs

This is a good community, and we are happy with my father's move here. He is doing okay, and they are providing him with good care. The community looks nice and well maintained. They do a good job with the cleanliness of the place. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help. I'am pleased with all they have done for us.

We Are Comfortable With The Care

We are happy with the care so far. My aunt is in a clean community that is also very nice. They staff are accommodating and they keep her insulin level under control. At times my cousin has noticed that they might be short staffed. He has felt uncomfortable leaving other residents unsupervised or unassisted. They seem to be doing other things.

The Best Caregiving Staff Ever

In May of 2016, my sister had to be admitted to this facility with Stage 7 Alzheimers. Easy went out of her way to reassure us that Vista Gardens was the best place for my sister. As my sister was getting checked in, one of the residents came up to us and offered us some kumquats that he had recently picked from the pristine garden area. That simple act of kindness brought a smile to all of our faces. During our frequent visits we established many friendships
with the residents, caregivers, cooks, activity directors, and nurses. Shannon, Emily, and Easter were so professional about meeting all of my sister's needs. Nikki in food services went out of her way to prepare some of my sister's favorite meals. Lito even let my sister use her personal phone so that she could listen to music on Pandora. Life is all about random acts of kindness but for this staff, kindness is an every day occurrence. You are the unsung heroes working tirelessly behind the scenes. On May 26, 2016 my sister passed away. I felt so good knowing that she was surrounded by so many kind people that loved her as much as we did. Shannon and Emily "thank you" again for being there at the end with my niece and for keeping her informed about the whole "transitioning" process. My sister is with the angels now but you both gave her wings and gently guided her to fly away.

What a blessing Vista Gardens Memory Care Is!

If I start telling you my story when Gramps & Myself went to check things out at Vista Gardens Memory Care...This is going to sound like a paid 1st impression when I met with Elsy...I knew I was moving Gramps to Vista Gardens..and (I had been to 5 other places they were like moving Gramps to a institution) We felt comfortable here and my Gramps felt like He was at home..I adore everyone at Vista Gardens and the Grounds are Beautiful....Gramps moved in June 1st, He has 2 new buddies...goes out and plays at the putting green ( a deal closer), the food is good too...Everyone in the Staff to many to mention and I don't want to forget anyone they all are Fantastic ...even housekeeping & Front Desk..please don't waste or get overly stressed like I did...or your time like I did ... I love you all at Vista Gardens Memory Care!!!

A disappointing day

My first 2 visits were to get more information about their respite care program and meet the staff. They were very friendly and the areas that I saw at the facility were very nice. The problem was that my husband did not enjoy the activities scheduled for the day he attended, although I chose what I thought he would like most and he didn't like the food. Since he has alzheimers, it's hard to put stock on his opinion. The one thing he might have enjoyed would be the golf fest but he said no one mentioned or showed him anything about it. Anyway, it was a disappointment that he didn't want to go anymore.

Very Good Community

My husband is doing very well at Vista Gardens he really seems to like it so far. This was a hard process for me, and the staff has been very helpful with every step of the way. The community is very nice and very well kept, I haven't had any concerns with that. The food is great; I've had many meals and I love it. They offer great activities like beach trips.This is a community I would recommend.

Beautiful memory care community.

My wife is at Vista Gardens and she is doing okay. It is a beautiful community. I would rate the friendliness a 6 out of 5! They are like family. I would say if someone is looking for memory care, this place is only memory care, not just a small unit, that's one reason we chose this place. The food is quite good. The kitchen staff is very conscious of nutrition. They do offer some activities. I saw a picture of her when they got her to decorate some Valentine's Day cookies. They have been very fair cost-wise. The management is very helpful.

A wonderful residence

This is a wonderful facility, dedicated solely to memory care patients. It is clean, beautifully decorated & has a warm feeling to it.
You will never feel this is a place that "warehouses" residents. There are many rooms w/different activities & small groups in attendance, all getting attention from caregivers. There is no sense of the large number of residents, but instead a feeling of small cozy groupings.
Everyone is cheerful & the residents are catered to, cared for & in a safe, secure environment.
The rooms are bright, airy, newly painted, with ample room for each resident's belongings. Bathrooms are clean & sanitary.
The caregivers are always some of the most important people in the life of a resident. Vista Gardens employs people who are warm, friendly & caring. They also extensively train employees in how to work with dementia & Alzheimer patients
I never thought we'd find a place as nice as Vista Gardens, and the rent is not out of reach and a bargain in comparison to other facilities with a lot less to offer.
I sleep a lot easier, knowing Mom is a resident @ Vista Gardens. I have developed relationships with many of the caregivers & other employees, who never seem to mind my calls & answer any questions or concerns right away. I highly recommend Vista Gardens.

Best of the Best

I just love the cleanliness of the facility and how everyone is very friendly. Salome was always respectful always made me feel dad was well tooking care of, he has since passed but ever so grateful to everyone who made his life a bit more at ease. I would defitnately recommend Vista Gardens to my family and friends.

Very Friendly Staff

Some of the activities they try to bring in family and include them, which is. The staff is very friendly. They know the resident's name and try to include everyone. Something that could be better is communication.

I'm a nurse and I've been to many memory care communities, I thought I had seen every version of memory care... Then I went to Vista Gardens. This is by far the best I've ever seen. The community is beautiful and offers every amenity you could ask for. However, it is the care for the residents that I was so impressed with. The staff at Vista Gardens cares for their residents as if they were their own family. The respect the staff gives to the residents was something I haven't seen in memory care. If my mother were to need memory care, I wouldn't look anywhere else. The compassion the staff has for not only their residents but also the families of the residents brought tears to my eyes.

Very Happy With This Choice!

We are very happy with this decision! One area that could use some improvement would be the communication within the staff, as well as with third party contractors, such as physical therapists, etc. The communication is happening, but I wouldn't say that it is as effective as it could be. Also, another area of improvement could be their activities for men. The activites seem to be geared more towards the women, and the men could use more socialization within their own group.

However, what we did like was that there were enough male residents. Also, the value is great! The management staff is good, and we met with one of the owners prior to making our decision. The ownership is very hands on and involved in all aspects of the facility.

The parking can be challenging when it's busy, but there's enough for the size of the facility. I also think the food is good. I personally think there could be a bit more variety, but it seems to be well-prepared and well-balanced.

In my opinion, they have little things to fix, but they are working on making themselves better, being that they are a newer facility. Based on my research, they are a real gem in North County. They may not be as well known as some of the others, but we are so happy with our choice!

Not ready for this level of...

Not ready for this level of care yet. Too far away and too expensive.

A nice place to live

My uncle lives here and i just recently visited him for christmas. This is a very nice place. Everything is pretty new and the staff are plentiful and very kind. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. There are a lot of activities for him to do. We helped decorate the tree in the lobby and then watched a movie together. They have a nice garden outside with a putting green which was cool. hope this helps.

Great Activities and Lovely Grounds

My husband is there and I think it's a good value. The care can be improved. I feel that there are not enough caretakers for the number of people. I don't know how many residents per caretaker but that's something that I have to look into. I believe they're in the process of hiring. They do have a very nice activities for residents. After breakfast until lunch they'll either have a song session or a question and answer session or something else to stimulate their minds. That's usually for about 3 hours and sometimes they fall asleep, others are interested but they ask them to remain there. After lunch they have movies. Other days they'll have a Church service, sometimes they'll have an exercise program. Last week they had a salute to the veterans and a lovely barbeque after that.

They have lovely grounds. There's a vegetable garden and a little putting green - a very lovely area where you can walk with your family. Also, my husband is diabetic and they are able to do insulin injections.


It's a real upscale place. Dad isn't happy there but we're hoping that he'll eventually settle in. They only take 100 people and it's all memory care.

Very New Community

Great place and my loved one are very happy here. In these communities you need to feel very welcome and from what I have seem Vista Gardens is very welcoming and they bend over backwards to accommodate. If you think there is something that shouldn't be they will correct it if needed. The resident seems very happy here. The community is very new only about 1 1/2 years old. They seem like it was built very thoughtfully because the sun just streams into the community very nicely.
