This place is horrible, take my advice, stay away, this is more like a prison than anything else, the place is also hunted, the administrator is loca,the review with five star is the administrator, she loves herself too much that she sends postcards and flowers to herself,

Just started looking around for my father. So far Mochi B. has provided excellent customer service. Very accommodating, helpful and informative. Compared to another facility we visited residents we encountered at this facility on two visits seem happier...more alive. One visit was unannounced! We asked folks on the way out if they were being taken care of and happy there they replied "oh yes." I witnessed this but their smiles, and that look in the eye. Dr. Sharafi my father's primary physician associated with this facility has had "excellent" references. Personally attesting he has provided excellent care for my father. He not only has a heart but remembers important details not on the chart. Placing a parent or loved in a retirement home is a sad season in life period. We have asked ourselves if my father will be lonely. He already is alone at home especially at night which is concerning because he needs monitoring due to his health issues. My father is social and active and from the look of it yesterday he will remain after moving in this coming Saturday. Granted he uses a cane and walks slow. By the time we left he had already made 3 new friends. We are giving this place a try. If it doesn't work....we can always make a change. Only thing I would suggest is to spruce up the lobby a bit...needs color, pictures...plants. The rooms or apartments can be made to feel cozy if you set aside a little decorating time for your loved one. We will try to make it feel warm and homey. It will be dad's place away from home, so why not? The key is to not forget about them, and to continue showing your love by visiting often.
