Testimonials From Our Residents
"...I highly recommend DOT to anyone."
“I had been living with my son and his family but since they both work I was alone a lot. After a short hospital stay, they found Del Obispo Terrace (DOT) and knew I would love it here. From the onset I was very pleased. I had people around me to talk to and they were all interesting people with interesting stories. There are many activities for our minds and our bodies and I highly recommend DOT to anyone. I share a room rather than have my own room, which I prefer. I have a view of the roses and a private patio.”
~ Helen West, Resident at Del Obispo Terrace
"...I consider myself lucky to live here with the many friendly residents and great staff."
“I lived in Chicago for 50 years and worked as a greater at Walmart for 15 years. In July 2015, I suffered a fall and spent some time in rehab. My son wanted me to move to California to be closer to family and he made all the arrangements for me to move to Del Obispo Terrace. I consider myself lucky to live here with the many friendly residents and great staff. The all around service here is to be commended. The meals are to be looked forward to, including the treats. The room service including laundry is excellent. Every Thursday they pick up my clothes, wash them and put them away in the drawers and hang them up. I cannot say much more than Thank You!”
~ Hans Lassen, Resident at Del Obispo Terrace
"...they make every person feel special."
“I lived in my previous home in Los Angeles for 50 years. I moved to Assisted Living due to medical conditions. My daughters live in the area and looked at many communities and love Del Obispo Terrace. I felt like I would be happy here but I didn’t know what to expect. I adjusted quickly here because there are so many activities and I felt like I was on a cruise ship. Activities vary from exercise, live entertainment, special events for Holidays and Family Night. Birthdays are celebrated in the dining room with balloons and cake and everyone sings “Happy Birthday” to you. The entire staff and the management are
excellent and are always available. They are friendly and no matter how busy they are, they make every person feel special. The wonderful disposition of the Executive Director has spread to the staff and Residents.”

"...best of all is meeting new friends and enjoying the opportunity to relax."
“The first view of Del Obispo Terrace is the welcoming drive to the front door! Once inside, there is evidence of lots of activities. The huge living room is the perfect spot in which to relax, have a cup of tea, enjoy a concert or watch TV. There are so many activities to enjoy – inside or out! A scenic drive, which takes us to the beach, along with a picnic lunch. A trip to a museum or maybe a stop to watch the horse trainers at a nearby ranch. But best of all is meeting new friends and enjoying the opportunity to
relax. There is no time to be bored. Inside there is the game room, the library, playing cards, ect. And best of all, time to make new friends.”
~ Pat Wilker, Resident at Del Obispo Terrace
"...the food is delicious!"
"The amenities at Del Obispo Terrace are great. We have a fabulous chef who makes sure all our nutritional needs are met; the food is delicious! There is a bus driver who calls our doctors' offices, makes appointments and delivers and picks us up on time. He takes us to lunches and on scenic drives. One of the best parts for me is that my bedroom looks out at the Community Presbyterian Church next door with its lovely green lawns and large cross. A golf cart is waiting each Sunday morning to take me to and from the Sunday services."
~ Patricia Bathgate, Resident, Del Obispo Terrace Senior Living
"This place, and our stay, has been amazing! We could never have enjoyed such a wonderful, carefree visit with Aunt Dorothy and the rest of the family without this wonderuful respite! Every single person, both staff and residents, has treated us like treasured guests and we are leaving new friends with warm feelings. Thanks, thanks, thanks!"
~ Nancy, Mildred & Dorothy, Respite Residents, Del Obispo Terrace Senior Living
"The environment is tops..."
"There are a lot of things about Del Obispo Terrace I admire and love. The people are so friendly. The architecture; old Southwest and interior decor full of antiques and the colors, rich and warm and not least of all the kindly service provided. Imagine, our rooms cleaned once a week and laundry also every week! There is a bus with a wonderful driver who can arrange doctor appointments if needed and days for shopping and outings. There are so many activities for health and socializing. I find the meals to be outstanding because the chef is innovative with new goodies. The environment is tops with a staff that's dedicated to making things run smoothly; always doing a little more than expected. I've made many new friends - some for life! I can truly say I am grateful to be at Del Obispo Terrace and love it here."
~ Janet Driggers, Resident, Del Obispo Terrace Senior Living
"I love the gardens!"
"I love the gardens!! Sitting outside reminds me of my stay in Palm Springs. Just makes me feel like I'm sitting at a resort. Love it!!!"

"...set the bar high."
"Your team has been nothing short of the Ritz Carleton of assisted living in service, attention, care, health and well being. But maybe the best part is that its the Ritz Carleton of service without the stuffiness! I can promise if you and your staff continue to provide anything close to the treatment that we have received so far, I will be encouraging many many of my families that seek my counsel to strongly consider placing their loved one in your Community and in your care. Del Obispo seems like the hidden jewel of assisted living in South Orange County. Keep up the great work! You and your team have set the bar high."
