We moved my grandma to Somerford from another facility and she is much calmer, and seems much happier. They have been able to get her in a good routine, which is helping with her sundowning. They are able to redirect her when its needed and never make her do anything she doesn't want to. The staff at Somerford Place are extremely welcoming from the minute you walk in the door, and throughout the "neighborhoods" they have. Everyone says hello and all the residents seem happy and content. Patrick and Kathy were fantastic at accommodating us to move my grandma quickly. Deondra was out to do her evaluation very quickly and never made my grandma suspect anything strange was going on (as she sometimes can be quite cautious). Once we arrived at Somerford Place with grandma, Erica quickly took my grandma on a tour of the grounds and showed her what they do there while we arranged her room. Grandma bonded with a nurse, Serena, very quickly. Serena has been able to make my grandma very comfortable, even allowing Serena to help her shower, and painted her nails. The entire staff has taken the time to learn what my grandma liked to do in her earlier years and they use that tool to help them create a bond with her. My family and I are continuously impressed with our "reports" of how grandma is doing in their care.

In November I attended an event at Somerford Place that was benefiting the Animal Compassion Team of Fresno. The staff of Somerford made that event run so efficiently and with class. One of the volunteers of ACT has her mom as a resident there and she expressed such sincere gratitude and love for not only creating a wonderful event but how the staff cares for her mom that is living with dementia. There is something to be said about a business that their heart into everything do. If they do this kind of work as a service to the community, imagine what they can do for families.

My mother has been at Somerford for 4 and a half years and I can't say enough wonderful things about the facility and staff. As an RN I know how hard it is to find a good care facility and Somerford is top notch. The staff genuinely cares about my mom and goes the extra mile in caring for her.

My mother moved in to their Seaside community in May. Every Tuesday they do a live "sing a long" that is so touching, beautiful and fun. Every employee participates either by singing or dancing with the residents. The residents have a connection to the songs and will sing, tap to the beat, or dance. It is such a happy time filled with lots of smiles as the singing moves to each of the four communities. On one particular day, I watched a wheel chair bound lady struggling to stand and beginning to get agitated. Erika, an employee walked over and held her hands and the two of them danced together. I wish I could have captured this moment. The love for the woman was evident in Erika's eyes and it was reciprocated by the resident with gratitude for knowing what she wanted and giving her time to feel like her old self by dancing. We all want to hang on to our loved ones at home. However, Somerford is the next best thing. I feel each employee truly cares for the residents. It has a very homey feeling full of love, respect, dignity, and humor. I would highly recommend Somerford to anyone faced with this difficult decision.

Somerford Place has such amazing staff. They go the extra mile to make sure all their residents are well taken care of. They are like one big, happy family. Their management team takes the time to listen and follow up with any questions or concerns very quickly. Thank you Somerford!
