    3 years ago (the summer of 2014), my husband, our 10 year old rescue dog and I moved to Valle Verde. We had been #262 on the waiting list for the new units that were being built - we weren't really ready to move so weren't terribly concerned about the high number--we thought we might get a call in 2020 or so which was just fine. Then, in 2013 both my husband and I had some unexpected medical problems arise. And, as luck would have it, at about the same time we got a call from Valle Verde asking us to come choose our unit - we had now moved up to being in the top 20 on the waiting list. (The new units had been offered to all existing Valle Verde residents; all were happy where they were...so none chose to move!) In hindsight, moving to Valle Verde was one of the best decisions we could have made. The residential campus is made up of approx. 250 single story garden cottages on 65 landscaped acres. There's a wonderful feeling of open space; you can walk anywhere--to the pool, exercise room, theatre, gazebos, dining rooms. You can choose from a myriad of activities to fill your day; (one resident has rightly said, ? you won't die of old age at Valle Verde, you'll die of exhaustion just trying to keep up with all the everything that is offered to us!?). We've made new friends (but still kept our old ones); we find we have lots more time to participate in activities in the community - theatre, symphony, Music Academy, volunteering with many of our Santa Barbara community non-profits. We don't have to cook unless we want to; housekeepers take care of our homes; gardeners take care of our landscaping; everyday problems (like leaky sinks) are quickly fixed by our maintenance team. AND we have a fabulous staff that listens and responds to any suggestions we might have (e.g., we asked for...and we now have a dog park for our many 4-legged residents!). I think many residents wish they had moved to Valle Verde even sooner than they did. We can't imagine living anywhere else. We love our casual Valle Verde life!

    We have lived here for almost three years now. It has surpassed our expectations in almost every way. The residents are interesting and have a wide variety of backgrounds. It's an informal, California casual atmosphere with a myriad of activities for every taste. Speaking of taste, the food is delicious, varied, and well prepared. While not everyone can be pleased all the time, I certainly am! The staff is uniformly outstanding, and willing to go out of their way to accommodate your desires; it's a "let's try it!" approach, rather than a "no, it can't be done" one. The 60+ acres of one-story units offers plenty of walking opportunities among the beautifully kept grounds. The health care is exceptional (my wife rehabbed here after her two hip replacements, and she sings their praises). Coming to Valle Verde was a great decision!

    I worked in the Memory Wing with Judy and Bianca and I forget his name that worked the Graveyard shift with me, he was a great partner and showed me well how to do our/my job. Judy and Bianca are whom we relived, Judy prayed for me one nite before leaving for her Halloween party and I'll never forget that, you ladies are top notch at your jobs!! Wish you all well, loved working there!!

    My mother-in-law and I both found your facility and services above expectations. While she pass away several years ago at the age of 100 years, as a resident, by her own words, she really liked it there. Thank you again for your attentive service. Oh! And good food too!

Compare The Number of Problems

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
