12/30/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: The morning after my wife was admitted she called crying saying "get me out of here". She had Requested pain meds at 8 pm, 9pm and at 10 pm she was brought meds by an angry attendant. Woke up at 1 am to give her sleeping pill. Visit by facility director after 5 hours who said that improper care that my wife was receiving was not normal and that she (the director) would speak to those responsible. Patient advocate physician came at 3 pm and said she could be discharged, but only against medical advice. He convinced her to stay at least 2 days so she could receive at least some rehab attention.
Food provided was poor: she told the food service that she didn't like cranberry juice and was allergic to dairy and at each meal she received cranberry juice and a milk carton. She had diarhea problems and was given prunes for breakfast.
She was told she could not go to bathroom without assistance, but it took 30 minutes or more before assistance would respond.
The rooms (about the size of a normal bedroom) for patients were very small with most having 3 beds with little or no privacy. Visitors had only hard folding chairs to use while visiting.
Rehab therapy was quite adequate with therapists being very sympathetic to conditions at the facility.

05/01/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: They gave my mother outstanding care! She has previously lived in several assisted living facilities. This is one of the best! The staff was attentive, caring and compassionate. I felt better knowing my mother's last few months were at La Paloma.

12/21/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My mother was at the La Paloma facility and also cried every night and wanted to come home. While she was there her hearing aids were stolen and I was told that they would be replaced and they were not. The Director, Gavin, never even gave me the curtesy of returning my phone calls regarding the hearing aids. Consequently, my mother had to spend her final weeks not being able to hear her loved ones.
