    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.

    Excellent Care for Dad. From our personal experience the Good Samaritan Retirement Center is one of the best values among assisted living facilities in the San Diego area! After many months of searching for an affordable nursing home for my 91 year old father, my wife and I were very lucky to find this wonderful and caring senior community near our residence in Rancho San Diego. What impressed us the most was the excellent staff that provided loving personal care for my dad. For our family we had peace of mind knowing first hand that my father felt very much at home at the Good Samaritan. He absolutely loved his room accomodations, the peaceful serenity of the grounds, and the everyday activities and special events he shared with other residents. He also loved the food and talking with other WWII veterans at his dining table. As a retired pharmacist I also felt very comfortable communicating with the excellent nursing staff who managed my father's medications. Every aspect of my dad's assisted care exceeded our expectations. We are at peace now knowing that my dad spent the final days of his life in a beautiful and spiritual place. Thank you to everyone at the Good Samaritan - Nelson C

    Mom has been living at Good Samaritan for four years. I cannot express enough how grateful I am that she is receiving excellent care, has wonderful activities to participate in, tasty food and a nursing staff to oversee her medications. While working shifts, I have shown up at some unusual hours and have seen first hand staff who stop what they might be doing to attend to the needs of a resident. The staff cares for the residents as if they are family. The administration is good about notifing me when they notice anything new or unusual, and I am free to make suggestions to them. I have recommended Good Samaritan to neighbors who have been looking for quality care for family members. Check them out. I think you too will like what you see. KP

    My 90 year old mom has been at the Good Samaritan now for half a year and every time we go to visit with her, she thanks us so much for finding such a wonderful place for her. What else needs to be said ?...The staff is fabulous, the food (chef) is excellent, the activities are fun, the accomodations are wonderful, and it is an all-around beautiful place. The Good Samaritan keeps my mom healthy and happy which in turn gives us peace of mind. I HIGHLY recommend The Good Samaritan !!!
