"Mom transferred to Vivante in mid-January from her own home where she lived with an agency caregiver. Mom had not been doing well and was staying in bed. Once mom was at Vivante she blossomed! Both her cognitive and physical functioning improved dramatically. She became alive and had a purpose. She recognized her family again and we were able to enjoy family meals together in the dining room. She was encouraged to play her beloved card games again.
Mom adored the staff. Unfailingly, she was treated with respect. Her physical and emotional needs were always addressed. Mom was kept near and clean. She would be involved in an activity or be mixing with other residents. But most important to mom, staff related to the person she was.
Thank you all so much!"
"It has been a very difficult year for our family. But we wanted you to know the best thing that happened all year was discovering The Shores. Our father had been living in a nursing home in Montana -- his wife became ill and could no longer care for him at home. She died unexpectedly and we needed to find him a new home near family in California. We felt very comfortable moving Dad in, knowing he was in good hands. But there were still many anxieties as we knew the transition from Montana to the Shores would be traumatic for Dad because of his dementia. It was comforting to see how well he adapted and how accommodating the staff was to get to know Dad and evaluate his needs. We are amazed at how individualized the care is for each resident at The Shores. Every issue was approached with a variety of options and together with you and your staff we found the right solution for Dad every time.
We cannot thank you enough for being there for Dad and all of us. On behalf of Arthur Thompson and his whole family --Thanks!"

"I can't thank you enough for the warm welcome you and your staff gave my mom. I could tell by the way she gripped my hand at the airport that she was terrified in a way that she couldn't express. Yet, minute by minute as she met all of her new family at Vivante, found the banana and the banana bread and ordered coffee ice cream, I felt the terror melt away. By the time I kissed her good night, she smiled at me and said "This is a really nice place!" I was joyous!!!
I can't thank you enough for your tender personal oversight of this "life moment" for me, my mom and our family. You were fabulous is every way. I look forward to working with you over the months and years to come."
