Many people dream of finding a place in the sun when they retire. Known locally as “The Village by the Sea,” Carlsbad is a beautiful city along the pacific coast. Here seniors can enjoy sunsets, a stroll along the shore, the historic Carlsbad Village Theater, a walkable downtown, and more.
Carlsbad has many independent retirement communities, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes.
Carlsbad is one of north county’s growing communities, so it has many senior care choices. In Carlsbad, not only will you find assisted living, you will also find retirement communities, independent living and dementia care. Some of these senior care facilities are situated along the coast, others are more inland. Carlsbad also has board and care homes sprinkled throughout the community.
Care costs in Carlsbad may be higher than other parts of San Diego county due to its proximity to the beach and property values. However, for seniors who have family in the area or who enjoy a more coastal setting, Carlsbad independent living or Carlsbad assisted living may be just right.
With so many options, it can be time consuming to learn about and visit each of the Carlsbad communities to see what they offer and if they are the right fit for your loved one. How do you know where to begin? Should you be looking into assisted living in Carlsbad or should you be investigating Carlsbad independent retirement communities? What is most appropriate for the senior in your life?

I came across Lise after dealing with several other senior consultants, all of whom were either located out of town or not at all in tune with what I was looking for.
Lise was a “breath of fresh air”, taking the time and patience to learn about my parents and their needs.
She saved me LITERALLY hours upon hours of time and effort by providing me referrals to senior homes that met my criteria.
To say that she knows the San Diego senior market and is very well connected thereto would be an understatement!
At all times, her ONLY concern was getting my parents located in a place that was best for them, and for our family!
I recommend Lise without reservation. You may contact me for a reference/further information about my experience at any time.
Lisa found my mother in law a palace to live in for her final days. Give us tons of information and basically took us through the whole process all without charging a dime. She seems to know everything about everyone of the homes in this area and answered all of our questions at least twice (sorry about that part Lisa 🙂 Some of them on a Sunday afternoon (sorry about that too Lisa)
The place told us they were giving us a discount because they really like her (Lisa that is) which is awesome. Thank you so much for helping my dying relative find such a perfect place to spend what little time she has left.
There is no one better than Lise when it comes to placing a loved one. I have not seen anyone work harder and never give up on the more difficult cases. Being in Senior Care myself you learn quickly who you can trust, and I trust Lise more than any other Senior Care adviser out there!
