White Sands, a CCRC in La Jolla, CA

White Sands facility has everything from independent living to skilled nursing. They have a lot of activities to offer, it is in a really beautiful location. We could not be happier with our decision, we know our mother is safe there. The food is excellent with a wide range of choices. The rooms are very nice and adequate, they have many options to choose from. Our loved one has a beautiful view.

Novellus Clairemont in San Diego, CA

My loved one has recently made the move into this community and so far I have no complaints of how things had been going for him. He has had a few health problems but other than that the experience has been pleasant for him. The staff have done a great job at staying organized in his care plan and are always attentive to his needs. I would defiantly recommend this place to anyone interested.

Complete guide to independent living

Imperial Beach, California

Independent Living

For those who would prefer to live primarily without assistance but wish for the assistance of having housekeeping maintained by professionalls, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect option. Residents may continue to use their free time as they wish while their meals are cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private health care providers, they always have the option. There are a number of advantages and costs to consider while selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in your plan: Waiting list deposit, meals, field trips, housekeeping, cable TV, internet access, wellness program, and parking. The benefits that pertain to independent living include golf course, private rental hall, laundry service, game/TV room, healthcare center, concierge services, beauty salon & barber shop, and community activities.
