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. My mother has lived as a paying guest for 40 years, so staying in the same area made the transition much easier. She found it easy to adapt and get comfortable at the Del Monte which was largely due to the amazing staff here.The staff at Del Monte is phenomenal. Specifically, Julie, Janet and everyone on the staff. They are so helpful and caring, we appreciate everyone so much. They treat us like family and genuinely care for the residents. The food is another kicker my mother hasn’t stopped raving about. Every week I get a call from her about the different dishes being served and quite honestly I find myself being jealous! All in all, I am grateful for Roma Del Monte for all the work and service they have provided in helping my mother feel at home during what can be a difficult transition in life.
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. They had amazing food and activities and overall exuded inclusiveness and positivity. I had a great time getting to know all the staff and felt a sense of home which can be rare in care facilities at times as there are so many residents. However, I found the new owner to take great care to make sure he introduced himself to everyone and got to know us all. I look forward to coming back for more events and would definitely recommend the Del Monte to anyone who wants to find a caring community that has your best intentions at heart. Keep up the good work guys!
I must say that I’ve enjoyed my time here especially due to the staff who are very compassionate
and caring. I have found that they are very respectful and always maintain good communication with us. My only concerns are with the meals which I have found dinner portions to be too small and the food tends to be on the spicier side. Another suggestion I had was for there to be more exercise related activities. However, the great thing about the new management at the Del Monte is that I know they listen to our requests and do their best to take them into consideration.
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.
I have enjoyed my time here and must say that there has been noticeable improvement since the
new owner took over. Another feature I like about this place is that there is always good food. I am a big fan of the themed meals they do for holidays and how they have been incorporating healthy recipes into the kitchen. Another added benefit is the staff- I could rave about them all day. They all have great attitudes and when you need someone they respond fast. If you ask me, I wouldn’t change a thing about this place!
My mother used to live at Del Monte. She and I never got along but she was my mother and I loved
her regardless of our compatibility. She was living midwest and when my father passed away. I invited her to move with me here in Pacific Grove. During her stay with me, her health took a turn for the worse. I felt that maybe it was because I was always at work and didn’t have time to pay her attention or keep close tabs if she was taking her medication correctly so I looked around at several facilities and Del Monte just felt like home. The grounds were very intimate and the staff were very kind and compassionate. My mother was not an easy person to get along with but each caregiver was so patient with her and she appreciated their care so much. It meant alot to me to have that peace of mind that she was well cared for. I will forever be grateful to Del Monte family for making all our lives less stressful
