Not all senior care communities are created equal. In order to find the best memory care facilities in San Diego, you need to consider a range of factors. Your loved one deserves the best environment and care possible if they have Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. Regardless of their condition, let’s explore four features that the best facilities offer in spades.

4 Features of Top Memory Care Facilities

Safety First

When looking at San Diego facilities, safety and accessibility should be your primary focus. While most communities and buildings will have this in view, you don’t want to settle for the bare minimum.

For your consideration: The Olivenhain Guest Home is an enclosed, well-landscaped 15,000 square foot home with gated access to ensure low elopement risk. Our building has been designed not only to meet, but exceed ADA requirements: wide hallways, safety rails, shower chairs, no lips or gaps at doorways, and fall-prevention bathrooms.

24-hour emergency services and staff should mark the best facilities, and we offer these to our residents and their families.

Quality Staff

What are traits of quality staff at local memory care facilities? Compassionate care with integrity is a must. Additionally, staff must be well-trained to deal with the challenges of dementia and other conditions.

Our Olivenhain staff are equipped to offer the best memory care in San Diego. From our owners and administrators, to our nurses, caregivers, and physicians, each interaction your loved one has will be with a knowledgeable, friendly, and well-trained member of our community.

Experience & Community Impact

All the training in the world is one thing, but experience is another. When experience, expertise, and compassion collide, the result is genuine impact upon local communities. A top memory care facility will make waves beyond its walls.

Olivenhain Guest Home has been a leader in memory care and assisted living since 1966. Our owners remain active in the community, including at senior advocacy organizations, local senior centers, and local mental health and medical providers.

To top it off, the Olivenhain Conference Training Center has hosted countless senior care, Alzheimer’s, and dementia workshops and seminars for the community. Our concern is for your loved one’s well being, as well as that of the entire community. 

Flexibility for Your Needs

A strong memory care facility will have a variety of programs and experiences to accommodate your loved one’s needs and lifestyle.

At Olivenhain, we recognize and celebrate each of our residents and their differences. Each month, our activities team provides programs designed to meet the variety of needs of our residents. We offer private and semi-private rooms that can be decorated by the family or a professional decorator and much more.
