I use to work at this facility and have had a family member here and knowing everything I do I would recommend this facility. They have done alot of changes and are trying to better the building, it don't happen over night but they have come along way. The main thing is they are constantly striving to better their care for the residents. The staff really do care about the residents, when I left I cried and so did some of the patients, I still go visit. Its like a family invironment there and you don't find that in all facilities. Most of them are just trying to get your Medicare days and then kick you out if you need long term care, the admissions cordinator was always trying to help the family when they were having to find a place right away because all the rehab days were used. Yet after reading all the other reviews people still have ugly things to say. And the one that is from Katie, she use to work there too and was terminated. Her grandma was there and even after she was terminated, no matter how many times her grandma discharged to the hospital they brought her back to Acacia more than a dozen times by choice so they must not have been that bad huh? Do your research and make your own decisions and meet the staff that your family member is going to be spending so much time with, no matter how fancy the place is. My mom loved it there and still sends the staff pies and candy. She tells all her friends at in apartments to go to Acacia they are so nice. The place I work now is much fancier and all the rooms might have tvs and nice equipment, but the staff is so busy running around there isn't time to be extra nice and pay extra attention to the patients its about business and money. SO be careful how you choose.

My mom had hip replacement surgery and I recieved a list of skilled nursing facilities from the hospital. I needed to place my mom for short term rehab possible to be long term care. After doing my research, touring the facilities and asking alot of questions, even though Acacia wasn't the best looking facility I felt the most comfortable with the staff. The saying don't chose a book by its cover is true. I've read some of the older reviews on this site and it has changed alot over the years. My mom was there 7/2012 to 11/2012 and the staff became like her family. There have been alot of improvements, new paint , decorations, TV's in rooms, the ceiling has been repaired. If there was ever an issue I just brought it to the attention of the Director of Nursing and it was taken care of immediatley. There are problems in all facilities I'm sure, but to know the staff generally cares about the patients made it easier for me to leave her there. I would recommend this facility to anyone I care about, the way the building looks isn't what got my mom back on her feet and strong enough in body and spirit to back at home alone and independent for a while longer. Good luck
After moving from San Jose to Merced a year ago, my wife and I toured a number of assisted living facilities looking for just the right one for mom. I was impressed with both the home-like atmosphere and the professionalism of staff right from the very start. Mom stayed there for nearly 6 months before her health declined to the point where she had to be moved to a skilled nursing facility. While at Orangeburg Manor, however, mom was well cared for. Room accommodations met her basic needs, and her medication management was handled properly. The staff treated her with respect and dignity at all times. Miriam, the staff administrator, did an excellent job balancing the needs of mom with the many requests of her family. She is kind, patient and caring. Mom loved her stay there, and our family highly recommends Orangeburg Manor to anyone searching for an assisted living facility here in the Valley.
