At Del Monte, we have taken every measure to ensure that our residents are not only safe from COVID-19, but also able to live their lives with as much normalcy as possible. We were even highlighted in an NPR article about the effect COVID has taken at local elderly facilities.
From experience, we know that the first two weeks after move-in require even an higher level of attention. We ensure a white glove onboarding for the new residents.
Having a conversation about money is neither fun nor easy, but it is very important in order to plan ahead. We will work with you to find the best care for your budget.
Life @ DelMonte
Everything we do, we take pride in. Our philosophy is to give the same care to our residents that we would give to our own parents.
Handwashing station, staff and resident temperatures taken daily, regular staff testing, and daily – we follow the CDC guidelines and then some.
Del Monte has been continually recognized in how we have handled COVID-19. We have been even been featured on NPR!
From experience, we know that the first two weeks after move-in require an even higher level of attention. This is how we provide white glove service to welcome your loved one into our community:
Personalized Care Plan Development:
- White Glove Service – a six-person team will affectionately and attentively care for your loved ones every need
- Close monitoring for first 14 days to evaluate new resident’s needs, preferences, and routines (ADLs)
- Review of health history and physicians report
- Orientations with family to learn as much about loved one as possible (quirks, preferences, life story, etc.)
Having a conversation about money is neither fun nor easy, but it is very important in order to plan ahead. We will start with Most ASLs are private pay and people either rely on sources of income or savings for this service. We work with the families to come up with a creative way to leverage income (Social Security, Veteran’s, Long-term HealthCare Insurance, etc.) supplemented with savings to ensure the most long-term and cost-effective coverage possible. This way, even if we can’t serve your needs, we can redirect you somewhere your loved one can receive the best care for the longest possible time.
Additionally, we have a fixed-cost system. Prices will not change if your loved one’s level of care increases – no matter what. This also means that we do not charge a-la-carte; the price is the same regardless of how many changes a resident needs, number of medications, etc., and includes all the amenities (laundry, meals, snacks, housekeeping, etc.). Because of this system, we are one of the most affordable facilities in the area – in fact, the most a resident will pay per hour is $9/hour ($6500 per month/30 days/24 hours).

Life @ Del Monte
Everything we do, we take pride in. Our philosophy is to give the same care to our residents that we would give to our own parents. We are constantly asking ourselves; would I be proud to show this to my own mother?
Our facility is the opposite of the institution-like settings of big, corporately owned residencies. We strive to emulate a bed & breakfast-like environment, accented by the individualized attention and personal touch that our experienced and dedicated staff offer each of our residents. Del Monte will do everything in our power to make sure that our residents feel engaged, loved, and supported and that every day has something to look forward to. Whether you are staying for a week, or plan to stay for the rest of your life, we promise to make Del Monte feel like home. And that’s the Del Monte Difference.
What Our Residents Say ...
The entire process from my perspective has been very good. From meeting Anu and Sunny in our initial discussion through the move itself was great. I wanted to make sure there was a comfort zone between us to make sure that there was a level of comfortability and that both of our expectations could be met.
The intake process was very smooth, very efficient. There were no major hiccups and the transition went well. My daughter did a lot of the initial admin and that just went on very smoothly, which can be a challenge when moving from one facility to another. They moved very quickly to accommodate Shane, who had been at the last facility for 10 years.
The support ratio at the facility is very good because it gives the patient more attention, not to mention the other services that are available like physical therapy. It continues to improve the quality of life, which is important. It increases the platform where a better quality of life can be encouraged.
Del Monte has alleviated a lot of concerns for all of us and we’re very very happy. God bless him that he came to a place like this and could have exposure to a quality of life.
My mother has been living in Del Monte for over two years and it has been a godsend. There is no way she would have been able to afford the higher prices at the other facilities. It works out perfectly that she is in the same neighbourhood where she used to live on her own. The facility feels like home with its ideal location near the ocean
I am so pleased with the immediate changes that are being made, for the better, at Roma Del Monte. It warms my heart to see photos of my mom out in the community enjoying herself! The staff always puts
their whole heart into planning activities and it
definitely shows. I particularly enjoyed the welcome party they threw in order to help guests and family feel acclimated to the new changes taking place.
I enjoy caring for the residents at the Del Monte and have found it to be quite a rewarding experience. No one can come close to compassionate care and looking after residents the way they do. I have never seen a team as dedicated as they are especially under the new management. Go Del Monte team!! Keep up the good work.
“Our mother was at first reluctant to give up her independence and to enter any assisted living facility at all. However, after a short period at Del Monte she realized how helpful and kind the staff was and how this made her day to day life so much easier. She is happy to be at Del Monte and has only positive things to say. Del Monte has been very accommodating to family visits and has set up very safe barrier arrangements to allow easy visits notwithstanding the pandemic.
My mom has lived at the Del Monte for 6 years and I live 2 miles away, so I am often there. In this time there has never been any indication of the issues that the previous poster mentioned. Over the 6 years, my mom’s care has been stellar. With that said, of course there will be concerns, but they are nothing like what the poster shared. Any concerns I have, mainly stem from my mom’s Alzheimer’s. There are times when the Alzheimer’s moves into another stage and tasks she could do without assistance become tasks that require caregiver assistance. When this happens, the staff always accommodates to meet her expanding needs. Whenever I bring a concern to Julia, she and her staff are extremely responsive and take immediate action. I would highly recommend Del Monte Assisted Living to anyone looking for a small, homey, caring environment for their loved one.
Though there is always room for improvement, 5 stars are definitely warranted during COVID-19 because these people are saints. They are doing EVERYTHING to keep my mom and the other vulnerable residents safe.
“My wife Carolyn suffered with Alzheimer’s for six years and we cared for her at home until she reached a point where we could no longer help her. We moved her to Roma Del Monte in July of 2020, and I cannot say enough about the care she received there. She was in the Memory Care Unit and the staff there were very compassionate and caring and treated her as one of the family. They prepared her each day for my visits as she could no longer provide for herself as she was confined to bed and a wheelchair. Unfortunately, she passed away in November. If you are looking for someplace like home, I would highly recommend Roma Del Monte.
“From our first phone call to Sunny to currently we have had nothing but a wonderful experience. Everyone is warm and friendly. The grounds are lovely. We are a very close family and it was a difficult decision to place my mother’s in Assisted Living. We placed her at Del Monte the first week of March and the very next week the whole world changed and we couldn’t see her. That was stressful, but we never felt out of touch with her even though we couldn’t see her. The staff and the management (Julia & James) were always available to talk to if needed and have helped with everything we have had to deal with. My mother absolutely loves the staff and her special helpers. They have gone above and beyond to help her and make her feel loved. We couldn’t be happier with our decision.”
When we walked in to Roma Del Monte we could tell immediately that is was well run by very nice people. It has been over a year now since my cousin moved in and both he and I are really glad we chose Roma Del Monte. Everyone is very friendly, extremely professional, and really care about my cousin. They keep in touch with me if they have any concerns or notice any changes. My cousin is happy and enjoys the people and food immensely. It is a huge worry off my mind as well, especially in this pandemic. An excellent choice for us!
My family was exceptionally pleased with the care my mother received at Roma Del Monte. Everyone there – from the owners, to the administrator Julia, to the caregivers- went out of their way to make her feel welcome and to provide the best of care. The Del Monte is a model of what an assisted living facility should be and a real asset to our community.
I cannot say enough about the wonderful quality of care our mother received at Del Monte. The staff is engaged, caring, and supportive. There are multiple opportunities for residents to engage socially, and recent room and building renovations have made it a happy, upbeat place for visitors and residents alike.
