Between Carlsbad and Solana Beach is the beautiful seaside city of Encinitas. For seniors who settle here, sites such as the San Diego Botanic Gardens and local beaches make Encinitas a picturesque, restful place. And the cool ocean breezes make the weather here very desirable.
There may not be as many assisted living communities, independent retirement facilities, dementia care homes, or nursing homes in Encinitas than in some of our other north county communities, but the choices you have are very good.
And regardless of the number of options, the challenge comes when you begin to investigate the various places to find the most suitable facility. How do you know where to start? How do you evaluate your elder’s needs. Would a small home or a large retirement community be best? Should you be looking for independent or assisted living?
Is Assisted Living in Encinitas Right For Your Elder?
Is it time for your senior to move into a retirement community? This can be a difficult decision to make. It may be time for your elder to move into a senior care center in Encinitas if:
- Your elder would like someone else to take care of housekeeping and meal preparation
- Your senior loved one needs care and assistance with day to day activities
- Your elder would like to be part of a social community providing events and activities
What Amenities Do Assisted Living Encinitas Facilities Provide?
The services offered by each Encinitas retirement community vary depending on that community’s purpose and license. At the minimum, you can expect:
- Meal preparation
- Activities and events
- Transportation services
- A supportive social community
Not all Encinitas retirement communities are licensed as assisted living communities, but those that are also provide the following services:
- Help with dressing, undressing, bathing, and hygiene
- Assistance moving around
- Help with toileting and incontinence
- Managing medications
Some assisted living communities have nurses on staff, but not all. And if your loved one has dementia, a memory care area is available in some of the communities.

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!
