After searching many different types of elder care facilities for a period of several months my family felt blessed to have found Alta Vista. Talking with the owners, seeing the two residences, talking with other people who had family members already living there, we knew we had found the right place for our mother. She is happy and very well cared for there. It is a bright and active environment. And she loves the people who care for her.

I am an alert resident at Alta Vista and have been for 7
months. I am partially bed-bound and require a high level
of care where my personal hygiene is concerned. I have
received wonderful care here and can only give Alta Vista
high marks in all aspects of my care. My husband was also a
resident here several years ago and my family and I were so
impressed with Meg and Loren that when the time came for
finding a facility for me, we were happy to return here.
Another service they provide is assistance with dealing with
my Long Term Care provider. That can be very confusing and
the help they give has assured that it has gone smoothly
each month. My Caregiver, the food, my exercise program,
my comfortable surroundings all contribute to my high opinion of Alta Vista.

    They are good at false fronts only. Reality is, they fed my mom cat tuna, beat and slapped her, rarely washed, never brushed her teeth, would not cooperate on doctor visits, and improperly gave her meds, while ignoring her known health conditions. She died of an infection that was preventable because they neglected to supervise her. They do not care at all about their residents. I cry every time I think about the decision to put my mom in that place, given she was in a good spot before. Sometimes the owner seemed high on drugs and groped inappropriately.

    Response: I know that this is a difficult subject. I would suggest you take your Mom home and care for her yourself. Only you could meet those standards. I would not like having total strangers caring for my parents. I am sure that she would rather be in a familar setting with family. After all she cared for you when you were "helpless", try returning the favor. I am not here to judge you, each situation is different

    Response: My siblings had the health directive. I was not given that position since I lived out of area. Believe me, I would have kept her at Belmont or taken her home if I could. She had Alzheimers.

    I am ever grateful for Alta Vista. The owners are helpful when I was looking for a place for my mom. I looked at other places but Alta Vista was the best. The owners are hands on, the place is clean. You would not think it was a facility for elders. Very clean, tidy and smells really clean and good. The place was complete with everything you need. I spoke to the other residents and they are very happy. The residents love the owners and the kind staff. This is home away from home. I am so happy I found this place for my mom. My mom has been very happy and healthy from the day she moved to Alta Vista. Alta Vista is heaven on earth. Highly, highly recommended.

    Response: Great home for my Dad. No other place can match this place.

    Response: It is a false front. They are good at that. Reality is they fed my mom cat tuna, beat her, rarely washed, would not cooperate on doctor visits, and improperly gave her meds, while ignoring her known health conditions. I found other reports if you want to read.

    Unhealthy place for residents and employee. Meg and Loren do not care about anyone but the.monthly rent of residents. Lacked of food supply and smells like feces all ove the place. Abusive employer and abusive caregiver to the residents.


    Response: I suspected mom was being physically brutalized. It came out later in a filed complaint that a resident had been beaten.


    11/18/2011  -  An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes:

    The place is in very bad condition in terms of care and cleanliness. It smells like urine and the floor is stick y like it was never been mop. The caregiver named Benjie is abusive to the residents by hitting them in the head and not feeding them whenever the residents displayed some agitation. The owner is abusive too, by not providing enough food supply for the residents. I do not recommend this for your love ones to their home.


    Response: My Dad had the same bad experienced in this carehome. I visit my dad everyday and there was no days that he never complain about a caregivers treatment towards him. My Dad claimed that he was being slap in the face by the caregiver name Benjie. I spoke to the owner and brought up the complaint and was promised that they will conduct an investigation themselves. A month after my formal complain to the owner my dad was still complaining about the abused. The second time I had talked to the owner the same promised was made without doing with action with my prior complaint. After another troubling month for my Dad, i finally decided to pull out my dad and place him some where else. I cannot believe that this carehome is still operating. Please do their background check first before placing your love one in this home.

    Response: Yes, this is not doubt the employee who was bruising my mom.
