My father was transitioned directly from the ER to Aegis of Fremont as he was no longer able to care for himself or live alone. Aegis of Fremont made the transition for our family and my father stress free and seamless. Aegis had their representatives at the hospital assessing my dad and managed the entire transition with care and attention to detail. After a couple years, I transitioned my father to an Aegis facility in Southern California and the transition was again consistent and seamless for our family. Management at both facilities has been outstanding. I'm amazed at how much the Aegis staff at both locations have been committed to my dad and his well-being despite some of the challenges with his situation; they come from a place of compassion, understanding, and professionalism. My family and I feel comforted and at ease knowing that our dad is in such goods hands. I would highly recommend Aegis!!
Great place to visit . Joe the LVN is amazing always going above and beyond . Sashi , Diana , Mary Rose are amazing as well . One thing for sure is these people go the extra mile . Scott in activities always cheerful . Chef Alex in the kitchen is amazing ! Great place to visit .
My father in law lived at Aegis for almost three years, and we visited him regularly in his new home. At first, the biggest appeal of Aegis were the two pianos they had available, because my FIL had been a piano player for over 7 decades.Over time, and because of our regular visits, we truly got to see the individualized and genuine care Grandpa received at Aegis. Giving care isn't simply about keeping them clean, dressing them or putting them to bed, but to give care really meant knowing who he was, what he needed, and how to provide it best. They did that on SO many levels, and not just with Grandpa, but with all the residents. I would visit and find him in the middle courtyard with a staff member, because they offered him a cookie, and wanted him to enjoy the cherry blossoms. I would see Grandpa enjoying a banana in the company of the caregiving staff as they folded napkins or prepared their charts for the day, and he loved being included in their conversation and loved helping. Bananas were his favorite fruit, and they knew all too well his desire for order and cleanliness. I would find staff members get down on their knees trying to talk him through moments of OCD behavior, as they would rearrange his belongings over and over again for him, or redirect him to another activity. He was legally blind and hard of hearing, yet he was encouraged to socialize with others, and exercise. He could not just watch television. At first he loved roaming the beautiful backyard on his own, but they also noticed when he had enough sun to bring him inside, or when it got too cold. They knew him well enough to know his favorite sweatshirt or favorite pair of shorts, and always kept an eye out for his captain's hat. And I knew I could entrust them to make sure he was well rested if another family member came in to visit later on in the evening, as they would put him down for an afternoon nap.Things can't always be perfect, but if I had any concerns, the administrative staff were not behind closed doors. The General Manager was very accessible, as well as their Care Director. I knew clearly the chain of command, who to talk to from the caregivers, to the med techs, to the nursing staff, and my issues were quickly addressed. My feedback always felt valued. They also had in house programs available for the family members that gave me multiple opportunities to visit Grandpa and be at Aegis. From the holiday luncheons, to open forums where they asked families' input regarding food for example, or in house dementia seminars. They even have a private room to host any special occasions with extended family members like a birthday milestone.All in all, it was an environment that we got to visit and just that visit and focus on being in the company of our loved one knowing he was well cared for in his daily needs.
We will always be eternally grateful to the staff at Aegis Living for the kindness, care and compassion that was shown to my father in the Memory Care section. My father has since passed away, but the peace of mind that we had from knowing he was safe at Aegis was worth its weight in gold. The entire staff (including Dave Peper, Gigi Tamayo, Lisa Bragg, Scott Sebastian) were so responsive and helped us all to feel comfortable and included in this new residential setting; their willingness to be honest, open and straightforward helped us to understand where we were in our process without guilt or unrealistic expectations which was so important. They went above and beyond to help us as we needed some extra support in getting my father placed. The atmosphere is very positive and each resident in either Assisted Living or Memory Care is treated as an individual with the dignity and respect that they deserve. We have joined in on the family days and met many nice people as well as took part in some physical activities (of which there are many to choose from) in the main lounge. It is a wonderful place that feels like home right away; the special touches including a welcome home sign for each new resident and welcome goodies in the room meant so much to my mom. The cleanliness inside and beautiful grounds outside provide a very pleasant place to visit or stay. We have so many positive feelings from our experience at Aegis that it always brings a smile to our faces to think about our time there.
Fore two years, I had a 90 year old Uncle with dementia at the Aegis - Fremont facility. My uncle is a difficult customer. He's still smart and can be very angry as his disease progresses. He also had a bad wandering problem. I call him "Steve McQueen" because he is so good at escaping. But with all of that, the Aegis team was fabulous with him. They were patient and flexible. We went through being in and out of hospice there with him. The care team was loving and friendly. They viewed him as a person and not just as an old guy with a disease. They were great at working with my family to continue to adapt as my uncle's condition changed. Beyond that, the facilities there are top notch. The food is good and the conditions comfortable. The only reason I rated this as a 4 and not 5 star is that the cost is at the top of the range for care facilities. They do a great job and the facilities and care are excellent and you will pay the premium for that top level care. If you have the resources and want the best care for your loved one, you should certainly check out Aegis - Fremont.
I cannot say enough about the amazing care my mother received at Aegis. The facility is beautiful and the staff were first class. My mother spent her last year and a half at the facility and I will be eternally grateful to these folks for making it as dignified, caring and compassionate as possible. I found their knowledge and education to be exemplary. They always gave me honest, straightforward answers as I never wanted the "white washed" version. Their intuitive knowledge of how to communicate with me individually based on my personality was so appreciated. There is no one right place for your family member with dementia but this place was the perfect place for my mom!
There are two Aegis facilities in Fremont; I'm reviewing the one on Walnut. We are so grateful for the amazing and caring staff who are taking care of my Mom. She has health and memory issues, and they make her feel safe and respected. They gently encourage her to socialize and they make sure that she feels included but not overwhelmed. We particularly like that when she touches the call button, a staff member answers in less than 6 minutes--guaranteed. We can pull up electronic records to check, if we want.The facility itself is lovely, particularly the garden. When Mom has been having a bad day, we go outside and watch the birds play in the fountain or check on the strawberries growing in the back. As some of the other reviewers have mentioned, the place is not cheap. But of all the places we considered, Aegis was by far the best. We're glad we made the decision to have our Mom live here.Update 2/2016We've learned a lot about senior care since I first posted. Aegis is still probably one of the better facilities, but even still, there is a lot that could be improved. The company spends a lot of money to make sure the facilities are clean and pretty; however, staff pay is low and there is a huge amount of turnover. Senior care may be one of the most difficult jobs out there, and if staff isn't paid well, they don't have a lot of incentive to give that extra TLC to the sometimes-difficult seniors. I still give props to the assistant manager, Li Li and to the two amazing activities folks, Gevette and Susie. But they can't do it all.
I moved my 90 yo father here in April of 2011. He had been living in a very nice Erickson Community in MD but we wanted him close to us. I looked at four places in the Bay Area and Aegis would be able to keep him no matter how badly his health deteriorated (i.e., he did not have to move to a 24 hour nursing facility). The facility is very nice. There is a lot going on. He has even taken field trips. I ask how he feels quite often and he says he likes the place. It is a bit pricey but it is surprisingly 20% cheaper than MD, plus there is no buy-in. I think Aegis is great. The staff all seem to know me by name and I do not go there that much.
I'm super pleased with the care that my dad received at Aegis before he passed away last year end. All staffs there are so friendly, professional, warm-hearted, and very detailed. They worked with my dad's hospice very well, accommodated my extra needs for my dad. During the very difficult covid-19 pandemic period, they gave us the greatest and warmest help and support. It's very hard when my family realized it's the last moment to stay with my dad, Dave @Aegis, the general manager, instantly provided us the extra suite to stay overnight with my dad. Staffs gave us shoulders to cry. I will always appreciate the greatest help we got from Aegis Fremont. I recommend to any family that might need the care for your loved one if someday.
We visited Aegis-Fremont for the first time in 2011 looking for an assisted living facility for our Mother. We decided right away that this was the place. Our Mother lived there for a little over 5 years, first in assisted living and later memory care. I visited virtually every day for those 5 years and got to know the place and the staff very well. I always found it enjoyable to be there----never dreary like some places I've been. As a matter of fact, even after our Mother passed away, I continued to visit Aegis and even volunteered to assist with a weekly presentation for residents. I strongly recommend it for anyone looking for a place for themselves or loved ones.
My aunt moved to Aegis after having difficulty getting along in another facility. The transition was wonderful, much to my surprise and delight. The entire staff, from waiters, custodians, front office workers, hairdresser and of course health care workers are fantastic! They always keep me informed of any unusual incidents. She was recently moved to the memory unit and that also was seamless. She seems very happy at Aegis, and that is very comforting for my entire family. Thank you, Aegis!
I have been very happy with Aegis Living Fremont. I placed my father into their Memory Care Neighborhood several months ago. They have gone the extra mile in accommodating him and making him feel welcome and cared for. Dad has severe dementia due to Alzheimers and can be a handful at times. Aegis' caretakers have the experience and professionalism to give him the care he needs. They have also been great in helping me with the transition from home care of my father. I would wholeheartedly encourage anyone looking for a place for their loved ones to check Aegis Fremont out.
My mother had brain cancer before we relocated her to Aegis. Dave and Lisa have been great. Unfortunately, my mother passed away this year. But Aegis took excellent care of her before and during Covid. I could not more highly recommend an assisted living place. They allowed her to have the highest possible quality of life before her passing.
