About the community

Clarendon Assisted Living features a community of four board and care homes, accommodating six residents each, on quiet residential streets in both the Woodland Hills and Lake Balboa areas of the San Fernando Valley.

Residents at Clarendon experience a lifestyle that replicates their own — living in a real home rather than a large hotel like setting, as a member of an extended family. The goal of our communities is to provide a nurturing, comfortable and safe environment where the love, care and attention to our residents is second to none. We know each resident by name, not just room number, and tailor our services to each individual's needs. This is our highest priority.

At Clarendon Assisted Living, our residents are treated like family, and receive truly loving care. It is this principle that guides us every day and that, for nearly 20 years, has earned us a sterling reputation serving seniors and others in need of care. Our services are unparalleled, thanks to a heartfelt commitment to provide a senior living environment that is as enriched as possible.

Our philosophy of resident care goes beyond basic needs. Rather, we care for the whole person, providing the...

Clarendon Senior Living is a lifesaver. For over a year my family was messing around with other facilities, as well as trying to fix the situation with private caregivers. It's became another full-time job for me. I was referred to Clarendon by a friend who's had his mother there as well. Once mom moved in, I could finally go back to my normal life, And come and visit her and enjoy our time together. This place is awesome. It is the best facility in town.

Individualized Attention

Great people who are taking care of my mother. Could not be happier with the home, aides, nursing staff, home cooked meals and the owners really care about the residents After sampling several of the areas more 'institutional' type facilities, I can state that RCFE's provide a much better service. A resident to staff ratio is 2:1, allows much more attention, and personal interaction that can be tailored to the individual needs of the resident. The staff are generally very friendly, and tend to view the residents more as family than charges. The atmosphere seems to be more like home, to the residents, than any other type of facility, which tends to make them less anxious. The downside is the cost, and the lack of onsite medical staff after the day shift. Staff turnover appears to be much lower than other facilities. Overall, I am happy with the facility, and would recommend it, especially as the need for more individualized attention grows.

Great CARE , reasonable Price

Clarendon Senior living is a top-notch facility. We originally had mom in their new Lake Balboa facility, because that is where mom lived. I asked [Removed], one of the owners, that if a vacancy opened in one of their Woodland Hills locations to let me know. 3 months later open...... a spot open up and we made the change. ........What a blessing, no more wasting hours on the 101 just to see Mom. thanks guys caring and loving staff, very responsive management Everyone there just really cared, . . . I would refer to anyone!!!
