I had lunch with a lady friend at Rosewood today and appalled at the design. the ramp going into the dining room for older people is ridiculous. My 91 yr old friend is recovering from a broken hip and had trouble making sure her walker didn't run down the ramp. I helped her catch it. Yes, she could hold on to the wall ledge, but then she could use only one hand to guide the walker. She had to use their restroom and the door is so heavy I had to help her get the walker in and keep the door open. When I volunteered with the CAPHA, we suggested lighter doors on such rooms and sliding door sin other areas. Cal State was a big offender. Rosewood is also an offender.

I have been a resident of Rosewood for three years and have never observed a lack of staff help for those needing assistance of any kind. However, there may be an occasion when we need to ask for help and not try it on our own. I have been using a walker for an extended period and am aware of the potential danger of trying to use the handrail and hang on to the walker at the same time, possibly causing an accident. If there is a question in our minds for our safety, ask the staff for help before starting on your own. Our staff is here to help and they do a fine job for us. The staff is friendly, kind and considerate and always have great concern for our safety.
Rosewood is a wonderful community, while looking for a place for my mother many people had told me that rosewood was a place i should look at. When I finally went to look I was very suprised from the moment I arrived and during my entire tour. The sales office was wonderful and could not be more knowledgeable about there community. The greatest thing was all of the people I encountered all seemed genuine about what they were doing. We are a couple of months from making our final decision but felt the need to let people know you cannot go wrong by taking a look at rosewood.
When you see someone who can't breathe you panic, so even IF a staff would want to do CPR he/she could entered into a state of shock of wanting to do something but your body not responding. You have no idea what you would do until you're in the situation regardless of what you say or think. A guy who was stabbed entered where I worked gushing blood out and I simply stood there. My mind was racing but i just couldn't move. I know staff who truly care for their patients there.
Rosewood has been a Godsend for our family. We no longer worry about Mom being in a very large house all by herself!! There are constantly fun and educational things going on, and always some great trip planned. The staff are always incredibly friendly and helpful, and go out of their way to make sure that their residents are happy and well cared for. I just wish that I could live there myself - right now!!!! Hopefully in the future.........
He is the best doctor ever, I had back surgery by him around 15 years ago and I was totally recovered in one year he is worth the wait for appoints you may of had to wait because by now the people in Bakersfield have heard how good he is. when I was about to go in surgery the nurse told me he is one off the best and he does emergency surgery's from accidents and ect and that I was in great hands .
I chose Rosewood because of the location and the reputation. My father-in-law lived here 35 years ago and our family was very pleased with his care. Rosewood has a Continuing Care Retirement Community contract that made me feel this is a gift for my family to not be obligated financially for my continued care.
Best community ever! The Executive Director and support staff are the best in Bakersfield! The residents and their families are always doing entertaining crafts, activities and fun family nights!
My friend has been at the skilled nursing for over a year and has received excellent and attentive care. The negative reviews here relate to an incident at independent or assisted living.
It is a joy to wake each morning, walk out on the balcony, through French doors to view the beautiful new xeriscape garden at Rosewood. We are so fortunate to call Rosewood home.
