Hi. I have been at The Kensington for 16 months and couldn’t be happier. Daily life for me consists of several choices, either exercise, crossword puzzles, charades, bridge and many other. They are challenges at times but are keeping my body and mind alert. Women here at The Kensington are excellent examples to have. To name a few; Kayla, Angela, Kim and Micki. So many residents have become good friends. I am content, healthy and cared for. Kensington in Walnut Creek is the perfect place for me. I couldn’t be happier. JBW

Mitchell was very understanding and kind and was very wonderful to us. The facility is beautiful, I wish my family was able to afford the rates, but I am afraid they can't. But I want you to know that you have a very BEAUTIFUL facility. You all do a great job there for seniors.

Really liked the liveliness of the community. ALL employees were super friendly. Liked the numerous activities. We had lunch there but it took a very long time. They served one of our meals way before the other. The waitress was very friendly though and tried to keep us informed. Also, my mother felt the bigger 1 bedroom was a little too small for her.

Wish you had a few larger rooms. I like the facility, but am having a difficult time with the size of your tiny living/dining area. There really isn’t room for a small table for eating and a sofa with 2 small chairs, which is what I need.

We are impressed with the staff, all were friendly and courteous. I did not grade a couple of questions in this survey because we already knew what to do and did not need assistance. The visit was very enjoyable.

Dianne was super-duper-fantastic! She was like a chameleon adapting herself to each member of my family leaving us all feeling like we were her #1 fan! Chef Priscilla should open her own restaurant - her food was THAT good! -and we are kind of food snobs! We want to hire her as our personal chef! Don’t lose either of these ladies! Concerns: overall, the distance is probably too far for our family. Just for constructive feedback: The hallways are darkly lit and confusing. The landscaping and waterless fountain need some love. The majority of residents we saw looked sad and disengaged by the bistro area. The remodel is gorgeous. We just wish we could bring Dianne and Priscilla closer to us!

Penny was friendly, informative, professional, knowledgable and very empathic. I've had contact with The Kensington before--my mother-in-law lived in Assisted Living, the Memory Care. Penny remembered my mother-in-law, making me feel more comfortable that staff truly do care about their clients.

My father is a resident with some special needs at times. Whenever the need arises .Jemalia and the rest of the care team are thorough and comprehensive in taking care of whatever the situation calls for. Debbie and Penney have been extremely helpful in helping with our questions and needs for room selection and billing insurance. I cannot praise the staff enough for the help they've provided our family.

My sister selected another facility that had an apartment directly adjacent to the elevator (the location of the apartment was the determining factor, due to her spinal injury). We will be keeping the Kensington in mind should the other facility not work out. We were impressed and treated very well.

Michelle was both knowledgeable and extremely personable. She spend a lot of time describing what the Kensington had to offer, with specific information in regards to my mother. My husband and I enjoyed the tour very much and if it was up to us, we would move my mother there tomorrow! However, it is my mother's call as well, so we will have to wait a bit and see. I want to stress that I cannot imagine a better introduction to the Kensington than the one Michelle gave us - she was just wonderful.
