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
