We recently had to place our mom in this convalescent hospital and she has adjusted to the 24/7 care she receives quite well. The nusring staff has provided great care and provide us with lots of information when we visit her. They are real people who care and understand the challenges we were facing adjusting to this transition. We visited other facilities that turned us away because they would not accept medical patients. They recommended this this place saying that they were one of the best and were compassionate when dealing with financial challenges. They accepted medical and we are very pleased thus far.

I think this place has changed name, and probably ownership, by now, but I wanted to mention my experiences. My mom and a friend both spent time here. It was pretty clean, and most of the staff was nice. However, one particular nurse (Rosie) was consistently grumpy and rude to the residents. Also they served a lot of Philippino food, which is good food, but I don't think it is right or fair to expect people in their 80's and 90's to adjust to a whole different genre of food.
My experience with Villa Rancho Bernado has been excellent! The clean condition and miniimuel amount of odor were surprising for a nursing facility. This is what I would consider rehab-nursing placement, not an assisted living enviironment. The staff are warm and caring. The meals are acceptable considering the many special diets need to be made three times per day. I would highly recommend for the advanced care of resident need.
