AlmaVia of San Rafael was a lovely and very cheerful place. The people were very kind and accommodating. The apartment, while compact, was very well appointed. Everything looked perfect and we liked it very much. We saw residents sitting in the lobby reading papers, some were doing puzzles, and they were actively engaged. The staff was excellent.Daphne N. AlmaVia of San Rafael

Moving out of my home, of 50 years, I felt overwhelmed with the transition and change. But, what I do remember is how kind everyone here, at AlmaVia, was to me. They were and are so understanding and attentive doing everything they could to help me feel comfortable and at home. Now, I am comfortable and at home. Thank you.PamAlmaVia of San Rafael Resident

Having just emerged from the unprecedented Covid years, I was primarily impressed with Alma Via’s response, and felt comfortable throughout that my mother was safe in their care. Because of rigorous mask-wearing mandates and strict adherence to both the Department of Social Services Health and Safety regulations and County of Marin mandates, Alma Via experienced remarkably few Covid cases. Staffing quality of care has been outstanding. All employees—from dining room chef, food servers, van driver, medical technicians, nurses, front desk personnel, event coordinator, bookkeeper, to the executive director—appear to be working in unison to create a warm, homelike environment for residents. The environment exudes a palpable sense of comradery, good humor, kindness, tolerance, and hope.ChristineAlmaVia of San Rafael Family
