Finding assisted living is a monumental event in a person’s life, not only for the person seeking this living option, but for their family as well. It can be a daunting process filled with many questions during an emotionally vulnerable time.

If you are one of the many families looking for tips on how to choose an assisted living community, you’re not alone. Most people on their journey to senior living have many questions and Pacifica Senior Living is here to help.

Where to Start

The first step in the search starts with identifying you and/or your loved ones needs.  Senior living communities offer varying levels of daily assistance, ranging from assistance with personal care services to more advanced assistance. You can learn about choosing the right care level HERE

As you travel through the process,  it is important to think about not only your circumstances now, but also potential needs in the future. Many of our Pacifica Senior Living communities are set up to allow for flexibility and transitions from one type of care to another.

You can select an independent living space now, knowing you can make the smooth transition to assisted living some time in the future - without leaving the community you’ve grown to love.

Additionally, many of our communities also have Memory Care neighborhoods which provide specialized care if your loved one may need assistance for memory impairment, also allowing them to remain in their chosen community without the need to relocate. 


Benefits of Assisted Living

Our staff is always happy to discuss assisted living options with you, and help you and your loved ones learn more about what it means to call a Pacifica Senior Living community home.

Most of our communities are pet-friendly, fulfilling another major consideration for families seeking retirement care. The option to bring your beloved furry friends with you to a new home also makes the transition a whole lot easier.

During this time of discovery, it's also important to  identify your preferences. Reviewing available floor plans at nearby senior living communities is a great way to see available options, and decide what works best for you.

A complimentary tour of one of our well-appointed communities  will allow you to see the various options; from square footage to amenities and everything in between. You’ll also have the opportunity to stroll through our courtyards or gardens, view our common spaces and dining venues, and enjoy a complimentary lunch on us!
