I love it here because they treat you like family. The people here are very trustworthy. They’re very quick with finding a solution to any problem. The nurse’s are quick to let you know what’s going on and everyone is always smiling.

Santa Maria Post Acute is a very special Facility. You can feel the warm and comforting atmosphere when you enter. Just like smell of an apple pie baking in the oven. It is a very homelike setting and the staff are so caring and kind. It is quite obvious they definitely care for the residents and their other co-workers as though they were family. I would definitely recommend this facility.


Santa Maria Post Acute Center is one of the best nursing facilities I have experienced for my mom’s health care. Emotionally it is heart breaking to see our mom’s health challenges. The SMPA Center’s Administration Staff, multiple Nurses, CNA”s, Event Coordinators, Kitchen staff are loving and kind. Brian is a breath of fresh air to the local medical field! We have had many interactions with the medical field in the past couple of years due to my mom’s health challenges. Brian’s tenacity to improve what is good and take it to an even higher level of good is admirable! He strives for the best for his clients needs & quality care first and foremost! Unfortunately my mom may have to be in a nursing home for awhile longer but it is comforting to me and my family that is being taken care of by a caring & professional Nursing facility. Santa Maria Post Acute is a place my mom has been able to make friends and has grown very fond to much of the staff there. As it is said “There is no place like home”, but when a nursing facility goes out of their way to show love & kindness to their patients, it helps make it a second home. Thank you Santa Maria Post Acute Center!

Santa Maria Acute Care took wonderful care of my Mom. All of the employees went above & beyond meeting all of her needs. She left much better, than when she came in. They all made her stay enjoyable. Very competent employees 😊
