I have a friend who was thinking of moving here and she read Jennifer's review and brought it to my attention. Jennifer's logic is flawed. Let me tell you why: At a Type A Continuing Care Retirement Community a resident does not pay more to move to a higher level of care. This is a HUGE financial advantage that protects against rising long term care costs. By suggesting that a resident move to a higher level of care is for the resident to get the care he or she needs. NOT TO SELL THEIR APARTMENT. Why would they move someone just to sell their apartment when it costs Vi more money for the resident to get better care. Your FOLLOW THE MONEY path is not correct. My husband and I have lived here 13 years and are so grateful we made that decision when we were younger. I recommend Vi At La Jolla Village to anyone over 60 who wants a great lifestyle with few worries.

BEWARE!! My mother and her husband have been living at Vi, in La Jolla, for 2+ years. The first year was fine; took a bit of adjustment but overall OK. The second year was an absolute nightmare. My mother and husband were/are living in the Independent section. Her husband became ill last year and required hospitalization at a nearby, unaffiliated facility. Vi administrators immediately attempted to force my mother to give up her apartment and move to Vi's Assisted Living section based upon their assertion that my mother was diagnosed with dementia. Not only was that untrue, her most recent (within 30 days!) diagnosis from a Psychologist stated she did not have dementia and even stated any move would cause more harm than good. Vi Administrators ignored the evaluation from a licensed Clinical Psychologist, insisting upon the move and proceeded to send threatening letters and performing in-house "Assessments" by LVN's on a regular basis. This treatment totally unnerved Mom and her husband who was also subjected to the same battery of interrogation upon his return from the hospital. You might ask: Why would Vi want to take these steps? Answer: Follow the money. Vi is a FOR PROFIT institution and everything is based on $$. They already made the bulk of profit from this contract so it was time to move them into a much smaller room in Assisted Living and find another unsuspecting CLIENT. The initial cost of moving into Vi is quite high. Once the first year is completed and profit banked, the impetus is to move those people out of the higher square footage units and bring in new ones. The tactics used to dislodge the older tenants is unbelievable. These people should be charged with Elder Abuse at a minimum. If you love your parents, don't even consider Vi in La Jolla.
