    La Vida Real
    They also have assisted living and memory care within their set-up. She has been there for 5 years. They are excellent. The staff are wonderful. It is very new and beautiful. The dining room looks like a dining room that would be on a cruise ship. The place is very well taken care of. It has a lot of wood in it and it is not cheaply put together. My mom has a 2 bedroom and 2 bath apartment. My mom is very social at 96. She has made some friends and has got involved with some things. I highly recommend this place. I think the price is on the expensive side.

    When I got ready to get out of the hospital they were right there with everything I needed. They were really helpful letting me keep the wheelchair on a monthly basis. When I called them to renew it for another month they were very helpful. So I was pretty happy with them. The staff was really polite.

    Casa De Las Campanas
    He passed away a year ago. It's was great and it's a fabulous place. It is quite expensive, we have to buy in and we can't just pay a monthly rent. He was there for five years. We had all three levels of care which is what we liked about it. It was beautiful and well maintained. The food was terrific. The personnel were great. It was a lovely place. The availability depends upon our finances because we just can't walk in. They have space but we have to be able to buy our own apartment. Basically most people sell the house and everything and use that money to buy the apartment. They have the choice of keeping their apartment in the family by paying a lot more for it or it just reverts to the Casa when we die. He got in right away. He moved in to a brand new apartment within a few weeks of buying, so it was very good. They were really good; it's really a great place. We got calls from the social worker when there were issues. He had a terminal illness so there was really very little they could do. All the billing came in the mail on time. I suppose I would consider using them but I don't want to go to a place like that.

    Vi at La Jolla Village
    Mom moved into the Vi over two years ago, and her apartment is bright and sunny, with a large, full kitchen. She goes to the movies regularly and sits with her friends, and she likes to walk to the nearby grocery store and cook her favorite things at home. There is also a farmers market across the way on Thursdays in the parking lot of the nearby mall. It is clearly possible to live an independent life at the Vi. We also appreciate the type and frequency of social events organized by the Vi, from champagne toasts to welcome each new season, to bird watching field trips and guest speakers. Notifications go up in advance, and it is nice to hear people talking about upcoming events over breakfast the day of the event. The Vi appears to put a good deal of effort into creating and maintaining a sense of community for their residents. When the time comes for Mom to move into assisted living, despite the challenges of the transition for everyone, our family is comforted by the fact that the rooms are very nice, and residents are encouraged to come out of their rooms and participate in the community. Residents may come and go as they please from here as well. The Memory Center is more restricted for the safety of the residents. The Vi takes great care to keep the wing clean and odor free, which is in stark contrast to many other facilities we have visited. While it is difficult to see our vibrant, energetic mom slow down, we are relieved every day that she is in a place where people are there to help her, keep an eye on her, visit and bring her soup if she's not feeling well, and keep us informed about any changes or observations they see in her. Mom is in a safe and stable environment, and we are very grateful for it.

    Vi at La Jolla Village
    My wife and I have been residents at Vi at La Jolla Village for four and a half years. We have an 1850 square-foot apartment high above Costa Verde Boulevard with a southern view of University City and San Diego. We very much like and enjoy our time here. We have available to us a complete exercise room, swimming pool, a brand new theater, three dining venues, provided transportation, valet service, weekly cleaning, and free TV and local phone service. Our activities program includes everything from exercise classes to interesting speakers to musical programs. Over 400 terrific residents live here, and we have made many good friends. The administration is quite mindful of the needs of the residents, and the staff who work here are friendly and helpful. We have an effective resident governance system, including a Resident Council and several committees which make recommendations in the areas of dining, activities, health services, etc. One of the reasons we came to live at Vi is because of the and quot;safety netand quot; it provides for us. In addition to the independent living apartments, there is a separate Medicare-certified Care Center with assisted living, skilled nursing care, and memory support, all provided at no extra cost to us, should we need any of them If necessary, physical and rehab therapy are available in the Care Center, as well. I highly recommend Vi for great quality of life after retirement. Living here is like a cruise ship that never leaves the dock. We are located a block from University Towne Center (UTC), near restaurants, grocery stores, and pharmacies. Moving here was definitely a good decision for us!

    La Vida Real
    Kind of pricey but they provide great service. They do not provide nurse's but you can hire them to come and do routine visit. They do have a lot of activities that they will have for the members that live there. They also provide transportation to help with doctor appointments. The location itself is just gorgeous.

    I have been using them off and on for at least 10 years. I use them partly because of insurance and partly the fact that they are just about the only game in town for the equipment.
