About Our Facility

Located on 5-acres of beautifully landscaped property in the foothills of Vista, California, we serve all of North San Diego county including Carlsbad, Rancho Santa Fe, Encinitas, Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos and Escondido.
Our senior care services are personalized for each of our community members to enhance their quality of life and to provide you, their family, with peace of mind.
Based on the latest memory research, our programs incorporate art, music, and exercise, along with the health benefit of being outdoors. With first–hand knowledge of how family members and friends are affected by memory issues (including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s-related dementia, and mild cognitive impairment), we created a special and unique community that treats everyone with the highest respect and dignity.
We provide a private dining room for family celebrations, an intergenerational playground area, and classes to enlighten and educate. You will often find our active residents either enjoying a cognitive group game called the Breakfast club or on our resort patio enjoying the sun while listening to entertaining music. Our property encompassing courtyards, walking paths, gardens, comfortable sitting areas, and activity areas.
Our Garden level is designed for older adults with memory loss who have late-stage dementia and need more care and includes a high caregiver ratio to ensure each resident received the utmost care.
