Between El Cajon, Spring Valley and San Diego is the city of La Mesa, known locally as the “Jewel of the Hills.” La Mesa’s most well-known attraction is Mt. Helix Park, a free nature preserve and beautiful outdoor theater that offers a stunning view of the surrounding city. La Mesa’s main appeal, however; is its central location in the county. La Mesa has numerous senior care and senior living facilities to chose from at a price that is appealing.
La Mesa offers many options for senior care including assisted living facilities, independent retirement communities, nursing homes, and more.
With an abundance of possibilities, it’s hard to know where and how to begin your search for the most suitable senior community for your elder. You may find yourself overwhelmed with questions. Would a larger community be best, or would a small care home be best? Should your elder be in independent living? Assisted living? A nursing home? What about dementia care?
Is Assisted Living in La Mesa Right For Your Elder?
To make this determination, answer the following questions:
- Would your loved one benefit by having someone prepare their meals and take care of their housekeeping needs?
- Does your elder need help with personal care?
- Is your elder no longer able to safely live independently?
- Would your loved one be happier being part of a senior community with support, activities and events?
If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, a La Mesa retirement community may be right for your family at this time.

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!
