Guest Feedback

5 stars isn't enough for the quality care Pacific Coast has given my grandmother and our family alike since she has been admitted to their facility. They have gone above and beyond to make sure she is comfortable. Pacific Coast continues to keep our family up to date on her progress/daily status. She is in great hands. The facility is beautiful (my son loves watching the birds in the office while we visit). I would highly recommend Pacific Coast to anyone needing care for themselves/ their loved ones. They put their patients needs and beliefs first. Thank you so much!!!

Way back 2010 when I step-in to this facility Pacific Coast Post Acute, My 1st Job as Certified Nursing Assistant. They opened new opportunities and widen up my perspective. Working in graveyard shift was difficult and unhealthy but with the help of my co-worker and nurses, we built Teamwork. "ability to work together towards a common vision." Im gratified that until now Im still working here. Our Management provided healthy workplace, always valued their employees. Our Facilities show that we have strict standard that provides care and service to our patients. Clean environment defines that we nurture our patients into healthful environment. Our goal is to make our patients satisfied and pleasant. Our Mission is very clear that we want to provide excellent service in clinical care with trust and respect.

Our grandmother was discharged from the hospital directly to this facility and our family has had to suddenly learn about care options, rehab needs, etc. We are a large, close family and have all been in to visit Grandma often. We are feeling assured and grateful because none of us have found our grandmother with anything but the best care. She and her room is clean. The staff treats her, as well as us, with sincere care and professionalism. I personally have met two therapists and they were both wonderful. We are, of course, worried and sad about our Grandmother's health and well-being, but everything we are experiencing with her at PCPA has been very comforting.

Let's get in touch!

Speech Therapy

Speech and language therapy are aimed at improving communicative abilities and cognitive functioning. Our speech-language pathologist works with patients who have communication disorders. Through evaluation, a tailored plan of care is created. Our therapists will provide 

treatments in the areas of speech, voice, fluency, and swallowing.

Physical Therapy

Pacific Coast Post Acute Skilled Nursing has an excellent physical therapy team that treats health-related conditions, illnesses, or injuries that limit patientsʼ abilities to move and perform functional activities of daily living. Physical Therapy includes muscle strengthening and retraining, transfer techniques, stair climbing, training in the use of prosthetics, gait training, and adaptive equipment training. Our ultimate goal is to restore the highest level of functional independence to each individual.

Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapy team works hand-in-hand with physicians and surgeons to ensure that our patients reach their highest level of independence. Occupational therapists(OTs) work with patients who suffer from disabling conditions by developing an individualized care plan that improves basic motor functions and reasoning abilities. OTs provide customized interventions to improve individualsʼ ability by providing treatment programs that may include: range of motion and strengthening exercises, functional ergonomics, and/or use of modalities to decrease pain and swelling.

Post Stroke Rehabilitation

Our experienced team of physical, occupational, and speech therapists work closely with individuals who are recovering from a stroke. While rehabilitation does not “cure” or reverse brain damage that may have occurred from a stroke, rehabilitation is vital in reducing further 

brain injury and maximizing patient recovery. With motivation and social support from our staff, the primary goal of stroke recovery is to prevent secondary health complications, minimizing impairments, and achieving functional goals that promote independence.

Wound Care

We are proud to offer extensive wound care by our team of treatment nurses. We have specialized wound care nurses who work directly with our nursing staff to organize and conduct weekly wound care rounds for patient consultation and follow up to ensure that wounds are properly cared for and promote maximum healing potential.

They facilitate care conferences, support groups, and provide counseling services for residents and family members.


At Pacific Coast Post Acute, the psychological well being of each resident is very important to us. We offer an ongoing program, 7 days a week, to meet the interests of each resident through physical and mental activities. Some examples of activities offered include social gatherings, musical guests, arts 

and crafts, exercise classes, and intellectual discussions. Our activities calendar changes monthly with new activities added accordingly.
