Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care in San Diego

Olivenhain Guest Home is recognized as one of the pioneers in Alzheimer’s and dementia care. We have been providing comprehensive memory care and assisted living programs in Encinitas and San Diego County for over 50 years. To that end, our Memory Care Community team has designed a suite of National Dementia researched programs and activities to stimulate alertness and physical strength.

How We Care for Those with Alzheimer’s & Dementia

Our Memory Care Community programs use long-term memories and past experiences from our residents to stimulate their cognitive abilities. The specially trained Alzheimer’s and dementia staff are on duty 24/7 to ensure the residents receive the special attention they deserve. They work closely with our memory impaired residents to achieve a high level of independence and ensure that they get the most out of each day.

Five-Star Memory Care

I spent several days visiting and evaluating all the better memory care facilities in San Diego County for my then eighty-eight year old mother… Within a few weeks of her arrival, my mother shocked me by saying she really liked OGH; how kind and patient the staff was… It is without any reservations whatsoever that I highly recommend this home for your loved ones.
