Recent reviews of Memory Care in La Jolla, CA
Harbor View Senior Assisted Living in San Diego, CA
3.9

Most residents suffer from dementia, so efforts to socialize--and the staff tries very hard--have limited success. Grand old house is built on several levels, so ramps and elevators are needed for walkers and wheelchairs. Heidi, the chef is wonderful--both in the quality of her cooking and in her uplifting attitude. Jim, the owner, is always cheerful and interested, and keeps the condition of this older mansion in good order. Grounds are berautifully landscaped, though under the adjacent airport jet landing path. Overall, a good value with a central San Diego location. Mother spent her last years here.

The staff of Caledona Senior Living are the BEST!! They have gone out of their way to make my mother very comfortable. Mom now feels that she has a new home. She has made many new friends. We feel that we are getting the best care for Mom for the money. They provide daily activities and weather permitting some outdoor activities. We cannot say enough great things about this facility.
