    My mom, Carmela, was a resident of Good Samaritan Retirement Center from March 4, 2013, until March 31st, 2018, when the Lord called her home to Heaven. My mom was very blessed by all the compassionate and loving care she received from all the staff at Good Samaritan. The "angel" caregivers and medical staff tended to her daily with a kindness and commitment that was truly a great blessing to my mom, as well as myself, her daughter. The activities staff, dining staff, housekeeping staff and maintenance staff were likewise, all there to meet my mom's needs. Administrators Sister Alexandra and Susan Sorensen, and Nurse Kim were always committed to offering the best care for my mom, along with their wise advice and guidance during my mom's 5 year stay at Good Samaritan. Good Samaritan is a place where the love, care and excellent skills of the staff helped my Mom and all the residents with equal effort and compassion. It is a very lovely, clean and well maintained place that was my Mom's home. I will always be thankful to all the Staff of Good Samaritan who attended to my mom as if she were their very own. I highly recommend Good Samaritan Retirement Center to all who are seeking a safe and loving haven for their loved one. May God Bless you All!

    As the owner of the largest Senior Home Care agency (Visiting Angels) in San Diego County, I can attest to the outstanding facility and management personnel at Good Samaritan. They are by far the most professional and caring senior living facility I have visited in the El Cajon and surrounding area. Highly recommended!

    This is by far the WORST "retirement center" I have ever visited . As I walked in the place its absolutely beautiful but everything else needs to be changed . As I walked around I seen maybe three caregivers, I continued walking by the elevator and I seen a caregiver walk right by a resident that was asking for assistance,didn't evening knowledge her and kept on walking . I continue to walk by the chapel and I came across another caregiver but this one on her CELL PHONE the second she saw me she quickly put her phone away,smiled at me and walked inside residents room . at this moment I felt like management had no idea what was going on, what happened next absolutely blew my mind . A kitchen staff in the dining room was setting up the tables for lunch it seemed like and there was one Chaldean worker sitting down on her phone drinking coffee while the other young lady set everything up !! Seem like they favorite people here , only saying this because the nurse came up to a caregiver and asked if she can go to residence room and assist them ,while the Chaldean caregiver sat in the library eating . When I wanted to mention this to the administrator I believe her name was Susan she acted as she had everything under control, or as if it wasn't a big deal. She seems to not care about what I have encountered at this place. Seems like to her it's just a pay check. I simply walked out the office . I personally didn't like the fact that there a resident who need privacy ,who people trust in that place to take care of their loved ones ,and when there are caregiver who are there to CARE for them don't even knowledge them just makes me sick . I didn't even say what other things I saw . Absolutely unacceptable . If you read my review PLEASE PLEASE think twice. ask as many questions as you can, be there as much as possible to make sure your love ones are taken care of & not just receiving your money. May god bless you all .

    Beautiful establishment. But they start employees pay at minimum wage. Should pay employees better, for such a fine looking establishment.

    My 97-year-old mother moved here several months ago, and we couldn t be more pleased. The facility is beautiful: spacious, clean, and very light feeling in the rooms and in the common areas. We like the fact that the size is modest, with a capacity of around 55 residents, rather than a huge semi-industrial complex. The caregivers have been very kind and thoughtful, and there are lots of activities to keep people busy. We recommend Good Samaritan highly.
